Welcome, Ian, you have the distinction of being the first new recruit under the self-registration system (not counting the vandal we just banned ;-) ). --Larry Sanger 19:42, 22 January 2007 (CST)

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 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!

Hi Ian. Is there a reason you started the page User:Ian Ramjohn/Ecology in your user space rather than just starting Ecology? I noticed there isn't an article yet for Ecology. Anthony 20:24, 22 January 2007 (CST)

Hi Anthony. What more can I say? If it was in the article space I wouldn't save until I was happy leaving something others could see. If I'm in user space I feel more comfortable making a mess. I suppose I should adapt to a different culture. Ian Ramjohn 20:38, 22 January 2007 (CST)
We're making up the culture now, I think. If it's more comfortable for you, I'm fine with leaving the page where it is for a short while. I'd say just move it over when you're done working on it, hopefully before someone else gets around to starting that article though! Anthony 20:53, 22 January 2007 (CST)

Welcome Ian. Good to see you got through the initial holdups Ok. David Tribe 23:38, 22 January 2007 (CST)

Hey Ian. I'm glad to see you here, especially with the quality of your work on Wikipedia. Sorry it took so long to get you on board. I'm looking at your email to CZ Personnel right now. We were swamped when we were doing it manually. cheers Fred Salsbury 06:08, 24 January 2007 (CST)

Please join us for Biology Week!

Hello Ian,

I am giving you this personal invitation to join us this week for Biology Week!

You're a Citizendium Biology Author and we need authors as much as editors here to get involved. Did you know that there are over 200 biology authors here? Yep!

Please join us on the wiki and add or revise biology articles. Also, please let your friends and colleagues who are biologists, biology students, or naturalists, know about Biology Week and ask them to join us, too. Any way you can help make it an event would be most welcome. Think of it as a Biology Workgroup open house. Let's see if we can kick up activity a notch!

Thanks in advance! --Larry Sanger 14:29, 22 September 2008 (CDT)
