Welcome Page

Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at CZ:Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, 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!) and the blog. Please also join the workgroup mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forums is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any constable for help, too. Me, for instance! Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun! Stephen Ewen 14:42, 1 December 2007 (CST)


Eric, Welcome to CZ, and thanks for authoring in the Computers Workgroup. By the way, UT is also my alma mater!Pat Palmer 22:18, 31 January 2008 (CST)


Eric - I noticed that you edited the article on MySQL to note that "MySQL" had been bought by Sun Microsystems. Could you please clarify your edit a little - I assume it was the company (MySQL AB, or something like that) which was bought (or was it the trademark? The codebase is GPL, so Sun doesn't need to "buy" that). Can you please rewrite your edit to clarify what exactly Sun bought, and if there was any sort of announcement about what Sun intends to do with its acquisition, perhaps include a brief summary of that, too? Thanks, Anthony Argyriou 13:42, 21 March 2008 (CDT)


I wouldn't use 'Erlang language' because we use '<foo> language' for human languages. Use Erlang programming language, then it'll be the same as all the others. And I'd use Erlang (unit) for the telecom thingy. J. Noel Chiappa 16:13, 21 March 2008 (CDT)

And please don't use cut-and-paste to move a page: that divorces the page from its edit history, which we need to keep for copyright reasons. There's a "move" tab at the top of each page; please use that. J. Noel Chiappa 16:16, 21 March 2008 (CDT)
Hi, I found out we already have an Erlang (disambiguation) page, and it already referred to Erlang (unit). Everything else is dealt with; the page is now at Erlang programming language, like all the other programming languages. J. Noel Chiappa 18:07, 21 March 2008 (CDT)

No problem; glad to help. We'll get the mechanisms to be less spit-n-baling-wired over time, I'm sure - we're still tinkering with things, so it's a bit ramshackle at the moment. J. Noel Chiappa 22:48, 22 March 2008 (CDT)

Your testimony

Please let us have it!

Sorry I've never dropped by to say hello and thank you for your contributions here!

By the way, if you're at all interested in joining us as an editor, if you're teaching as a CS professor, it's likely that you're qualified...let me know. --Larry Sanger 21:05, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Norbert Weiner

I did set up Norbert Weiner/Related Articles, but not a full cluster, leaving that for you. Howard C. Berkowitz 16:25, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
