User talk:Kate Carruthers
Welcome, new editor! We're very glad you've joined us. Here are pointers for a quick start. Also, when you get a chance, please read The Editor Role. You can look at Getting Started for other helpful introductory pages. It is essential for you as an editor to join the Citizendium-Editors (broadcast) mailing list in order to stay abreast of editor-related issues, as well as the mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. It is also important, for project-wide matters, to join the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forums is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any constable for help, too. Me, for instance! Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and thank you! We appreciate your willingness to share your expertise, and we hope to see your edits on Recent changes soon.

As a Computers Workgroup editor, I'd like to welcome you, encourage your original contributions, and let you know about some things that might be of interest. Personally, I'm more of a lower layers specialist, with my application-level interest more in system management, clinical medical applications, and military computing. With the latter two, I've been accused of not being able to make up my mind between life-critical and death-critical systems.
User: David MacQuigg is starting up some work on email. I've been doing DNS work in lieu of more of a specialist, and the DNS security aspect starts touching on the security work of User: Sandy Harris. User: Pat Palmer, also an Editor, has been swamped, but brought through one of her classes doing assignments here, including in some Web 2.0 and related areas. I personally would appreciate DNS review.
Please drop me an email or put a note on my user page if I can be of assistance. Howard C. Berkowitz 09:23, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Returning to Citizendium: an update on the project and how to get involved
Hello - some time ago you became part of the Citizendium project, but we haven't seen you around for a while. Perhaps you'd like to update your public biography or check on the progress of any pages you've edited so far.
Citizendium now has over 16,000 articles, with more than 150 approved by specialist Editors such as yourself, but our contributor numbers require a boost. We have an initiative called 'Eduzendium' that brings in students enrolled on university courses to write articles for credit, but we still need more Editors across the community to write, discuss and approve material. There are some developed Computers articles that could be improved and approved, and some high-priority Applied Sciences articles that we don't have yet. You can also create new articles via this guide, and contribute to some Computers pages that have been recently edited - or to any others on Citizendium, since you're a general Author as well as a specialist Editor. You may like to contribute to discussions in the forums, and might consider running for an elected position on the Management and Editorial Councils that oversee the project.
If you have any questions, let me know via my Talk page or by leaving a message below this one. Thank you for signing up and reading this update; I hope that you will look in on our community soon. John Stephenson 12:38, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
