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! Larry Sanger 03:22, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi, Michael, welcome aboard! I wrote a lot of tennis stuff when I first joined in May of 2007 and you can probably dig it up pretty easily if you're interested. User:Ro Thorpe did some work on a few articles for a while but lately I've been the only one doing any tennis at all, which is to say, nothing. Any editing, rewriting, expansion, whatever, on the existing articles would be wonderful. There are a couple of *long* articles that need work, ie, Pancho Gonzales, Tennis, and Ken Rosewall, mainly because they originated at WP and need a lot of rewriting because of that. I also created at least one table (catalog, something or other) that might bear looking at, Prominent Tennis Players, quite different from anything at WP, and there's also the World No. 1, which I began at WP and eventually brought over here, where I did *some* editing....

Let me add my welcome, although my tennis skills are at the level that I dare my opponent to hit my racket with the ball. On the computers side, however, there is, I hope, an revived interest both in pure usability interface design, as well as some work on knowledge navigation. Howard C.
