Welcome Page

Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at CZ:Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list (do join!) and the blog. Please also join the workgroup mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. 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 have fun! Joe Quick 02:04, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Articles in CAPS

Hi Mercurio, just noticed that you are starting your articles with all CAPS. We'll need to move them according to CZ Naming conventions. It is good to see you fast at work! But, please do take some time to get it right so you don't have to go back and clean up. D. Matt Innis 22:28, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Your biographical articles

Mercurio: Your articles:

all are capitalized, as noted above, and are not formatted to be consistent with CZ articles.

In contrast, your article Fondazione Foucault is properly formatted.

None of your articles include the template {{subpages}} which would create (among other things) a Talk page where the articles could be discussed by the community.

All of your articles contain a translation in Italian, which is also not the procedure on CZ. I'd suggest these translations be removed.

None of your articles provide outside links or sources where the importance of their subject is established, and where a reader could find more information.

Before you create a mass of articles that need to be fixed, it would be a good idea to fix the ones already here.

If you need some help with these changes, please ask. John R. Brews 04:30, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

Removal notice

The Editorial Council is discussing your articles (see [1]). If you cannot present reliable sources supporting their content they will have to be removed. --Peter Schmitt 10:17, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

I proceeded to re-edit the articles in question that have the following names

Viktor Grobheiten

Baldemar Becker

Russ Colombo

As you can see the articles that you reported




not contain more text and thus can be eliminated.

greetings Mercurio Cavaldi

Mercurio: We are not only discussing the spelling (all caps) but also the content of the correctly named articles. --Peter Schmitt 12:11, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
(By the way: you should sign with ~~~~. This will produce your signature and a timestamp. --Peter Schmitt 12:14, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Removal notice

Mercurio, by decision of the Editorial Council your four clusters were moved to subpages of your user space. Whenever you can provide reliable references that show that the Fondazione has at least local relevance and the photographers and their biographies are indeed publicly known then the EC may reconsider this decision. --Peter Schmitt 00:56, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
