User talk:Russell Johnston
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!
Russell, I'm sure you meant very well in telling us about citipedia.org and citopedia.org, but it's pretty obvious that they aren't appropriate topics for encyclopedia articles. --Larry Sanger 19:21, 23 January 2007 (CST)
I was following wikipedia's lead, since it has an article on Citizendium - it's hard to know the instances when we should or shouldn't follow that tradition.
I also do worry about fraud, I think a warning is worthwhile re citipedia, which seems to be trying to cause mistaken identity. But if you aren't worried, I won't give it more thought.
Russell, could you kindly fill out your user page? Strictly, registration is for "read only" until some sort of bio is supplied to introduce you. Thanks, Nancy Nancy Sculerati MD 10:58, 7 February 2007 (CST)
