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 Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, our help system 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!) or via Twitter. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forum is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any administrator for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun! John Stephenson (talk) 18:40, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

I am not fully versed on wiki scripting format but am learning, so I welcome any ways to make my pages more efficient and improve content.Phil Hermanns (talk) 14:29, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
No problem. I've added some links to your wrestling article, removed some unnecessary templates, and added it to the Sports Workgroup via the Metadata page. John Stephenson (talk) 15:29, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
John looking at the page would it be better to put each year as a subpage versus putting all 60 years on one page? Also how do I get the columns to left justify?Phil Hermanns (talk) 16:39, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
You could do that. They could go under 'Catalogs' subpages, as sub-subpages, e.g. New Mexico State Wrestling Champions/Catalogs/2016. You could create the /Catalogs page as an index. To start, go to the article's Talk page, hit 'Unused subpages'and click 'Catalogs'. As for justification, not sure. You may have to just specify 'left' in every cell as you've done in some of the tables, i.e. style="text-align:left". John Stephenson (talk) 19:00, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
Ok, John, as I said before I am a real rookie when it comes to Wiki. Not sure what I did, but tried a move (rename) of the New Mexico State Wrestling Champions page but lost the metadata. Suggestions? Phil Hermanns (talk) 17:24, 7 June 2016 (UTC)


Hi, Phil, just noticed that you were here and active. Glad to see you! I've forgotten a *lot* of technical stuff, but I am active from time to time (as I am at the current moment), so if you have questions, ask me and I'll see if I can help.... (Just click on the my talk link and that *should* get my attention!) Hayford Peirce (talk) 17:14, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
