Welcome Page

Welcome, new editor! We're very glad you've joined us. Here are pointers for a quick start. Also, when you get a chance, please read The Editor Role. You can look at Getting Started for other helpful introductory pages. It is essential for you as an editor to join the Citizendium-Editors mailing list in order to stay abreast of editor-related issues. If you wish, just ask me to create a "personal sandbox" for you where you can test out editing and writing articles. If you need help to get going, it is a good idea to join our discussion forums. That's where we discuss policy, proposals or technical problems. You can ask any constable for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and thank you! We appreciate your willingness to share your expertise, and we hope to see you begin actively editing and contributing to Citizendium. Milton Beychok 16:23, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Dorian: Let me add my welcome to Milton's — welcome to Citizendium, affectionately 'CZ'. We look forward to your multiple Editor work and author content contributions. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or suggestions, at Anthony.Sebastian, click 'Discussion' upper right to reach my talk page. Or email me at I live in the little town you grew up in, San Francisco, never been to London. I contribute to CZ as Biology Editor and as Health Sciences Editor, and have been with CZ since its inception. Best wishes to you. Anthony.Sebastian 17:31, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
And mine - good to see you here. Fascinated by your area of expertise and am looking forward to finding out more about it.Gareth Leng 17:33, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Some ideas for contributions

Dear Dorian, welcome aboard CZ. Milt and Tony have already given you some hints as to how things work here in general, and I wish to add some more practical suggestions on what possibilities you have to contribute. For a start, I just took some of the keywords from the information you supplied upon registration, and display below the current state of related CZ articles (for icon documentation, see Template:Rpl/Doc):

In order to find articles dealing with similar topics, it's also worth looking at the Related Article subpages of such an article (or the [r]). Other subpage types also exist, e.g. Agriculture/Video.

In case you are involved in homework assignments, please consider doing so via Eduzendium articles.

Looking forward to fruitful collaborative editing, --Daniel Mietchen 22:02, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Returning to Citizendium: an update on the project and how to get involved

Hello - some time ago you became part of the Citizendium project, but we haven't seen you around for a while. Perhaps you'd like to update your public biography or check on the progress of any pages you've edited so far.

Citizendium now has over 16,000 articles, with more than 150 approved by specialist Editors such as yourself, but our contributor numbers require a boost. We have an initiative called 'Eduzendium' that brings in students enrolled on university courses to write articles for credit, but we still need more Editors across the community to write, discuss and approve material. There are some developed Biology, Agriculture and Archaeology articles that could be improved and approved, and some high-priority Biology, Agriculture and Archaeology articles that we don't have yet. You can also create new articles via this guide, and contribute to some Biology, Agriculture or Archaeology pages that have been recently edited here, here and here - or to any others on Citizendium, since you're a general Author as well as a specialist Editor. You may like to contribute to discussions in the forums, and might consider running for an elected position on the Management and Editorial Councils that oversee the project.

If you have any questions, let me know via my Talk page or by leaving a message below this one. Thank you for signing up and reading this update; I hope that you will look in on our community soon. John Stephenson 14:15, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
