Glad to see you back

Hi Raymond, this is just to say that I am glad to see you contribute again. With a smile, --Daniel Mietchen 22:41, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Daniel. I'm mostly here to look at Homeopathy as a sort of test case on how Citizendium handles controversial articles. If it gets fixed then I may work on the project more regularly. While I'm here, I thought I'd clean up some of the most egregiously awful stuff in Global warming. Raymond Arritt 00:59, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, don't forget that all we can do at the moment is to "fix" the *draft* version of Homeopathy. Once that's fixed, then we can see about getting it to replace the Approved article. So first things first.... Hayford Peirce 01:13, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
To avoid the potential for misunderstandings I don't think anyone should make substantive changes to the draft without first receiving guidance from the EIC. Raymond Arritt 16:55, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Larry seems to be MIA these days but is probably lurking around in the neighborhood. In any case, "substantive" changes should never be made to *any* article without at least some discussion ahead of time. The problem is defining "substantive" to everyone's satisfaction. But if we can't make *some* changes to the draft version of Homeopathy, then that means it's just as locked in stone as the Approved article, which is NOT meant to be the case. People are free to work on it at any time.... Hayford Peirce 17:16, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Glad to see you back, Pt. 2

Well, many thanks, it's very nice to have some feedback and appreciation. Stick around for a while! Ro Thorpe 06:14, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Citizendium charter drafting commitee nomination

Hi Raymond, You've been nominated by a fellow Citizendium member to be a candidate for election to the Citizendium charter drafting committee.

If you haven't been following the discussion in the forums, we're getting ready to establish a charter for Citizendium that outlines the project's goals, ideals, and basic structure. To get the process moving, we put together a plan for electing a group of Citizens to compose a draft of the charter, which will then be submitted for community review. You can find more about the plan here.

You've been nominated by another Citizen to be a candidate for election to that committee. The next step is up to you: you may either accept or decline the nomination by going here and following the instructions at the top of the page.

If you have any questions, just let me know. --Joe Quick 14:59, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
