I'm a student at the University of Colorado Boulder working on the biological anthropology project for Anth 4010. I'll be working on this article for the entire semester, it is in no way done. I appreciate any feedback though, as I've never worked on wiki before. Thanks. ...said Elizabeth Mickel (talk) 23:55, 8 March 2008 (Please sign your talk page posts by simply adding four tildes, ~~~~.)

Hi, I took a quick look; seems like a good start! I fixed some markup (i.e. Citizendium syntax) issues for you (the most important one is that links to other topics are surrounded by double [[ ]]'s), and also filled out some of the bureacratic paperwork on the article. And please sign comments on talk: pages, but you don't sign the actual article(s). Oh, one final tip: "its" only has an apostrophe when it's short for "it is". Basically looks good, though. (I remember reading about the original Zinj discovery in National Geographic as a kid, although I think it was an old issue. Probably worth looking that up and adding it to the bibliography. I seem to recall it was a fairly extensive and informative article.) J. Noel Chiappa 08:49, 9 March 2008 (CDT)
PS: Did you mean Anth 4110? If so, you might want to sign up on the project page. And if you don't want anyone fiddling with the text of the article directly, just giving you comments here, stick this "{{EZarticle-closed-auto}}" at the top of the article, just below the {{subpages}} thingy.
