Warm welcome, I hope you enjoy it here - bit tiresome just at the moment with vandal attacks, but it's a strong and supportive community emerging. Think toyr input on Jesus and related articles would be more than welcomed!Gareth Leng 04:35, 9 February 2007 (CST).

Article Deletion

Hi Paul. Thanks for the great job flagging the Ws for deletion. I've left two - The Winston Churchill article, although it hasn't had a huge amount of change, looks like people are working on it - Do you really think it should go? Also, the article on the Wannsee Conference was imported by a contributor who wrote the wikipedia article. So I think we should flag that its from WP but it shouldn't be deleted. -- Sarah Tuttle 22:40, 17 February 2007 (CST)

The Cold War is back Robert Tito | Talk 16:10, 18 February 2007 (CST) welcome

Hi Paul, warmest (belated) welcome to CZ. On speedy delete patrol I saw the (very nice) article on the US constitution and added some minor edits just to reinforce its acceptance on CZ. On dewikifying dates - as the links dont go anywhere now on CZ but just appear red and blind I removed them as distractions. Generally on CZ we're being much more parsimonious with links than WP - trying to make them more meaningful to the article and as the dates probably aren't going to link to anything cognate in the near future, as this article approaches approval I think we'd expect them to go.

Hope this makes sense. We're doing things a bit differently to WP and I expect the divergence to increase rather than decrease. We're emphasising style amd readability more I think as well as the expert bit, maybe more so.Gareth Leng 16:51, 20 February 2007 (CST)

Wannsee Conference

If you have criticisms or comments on the substance of this article, please raise them with me at the article's Talk page, or at my Talk page. If you think your prose style is superior to mine, I suggest you write an article on a subject of similar complexity, and we will see. I have been a journalist and subeditor for many years and I don't see that you have superior qualifications to mine in this regard. So I have, with respect, reverted your edit.

Adam, there seems no need to play one-upmanship on this, don't you think? Why not just explain how you think your style is better, and invite Paul to discuss things further? Stephen Ewen 17:04, 27 February 2007 (CST)

adding to the workgroup page

When you get a moment, could you add any additional "to do" headings to the anthro workgroup page - particularly in sociology/classical anthropology or any other category where you have expertise? I want to get this list in order - format it and make a decent welcome page (unless of course you find the time to do that...............)!

Many thanks in advance!
