I set up a preliminary chemistry workgroup and added you as an editor. Fred Salsbury 08:03, 21 November 2006 (CST)

Hi William--I notice you've been adding articles to the chemistry workgroup, but unless someone has actually worked on an article, please don't also add it to "CZ Live." We want the "CZ Live" category to be all and only articles that people have worked on significantly. Thanks! --Larry Sanger 22:19, 22 November 2006 (CST)

scientific publications

Bill, you may want to take an interest in some of the articles in the Library and information science group. DavidGoodman 01:14, 23 November 2006 (CST)

CZ Live

Hi, Bill... I noticed you took the CZ Live tag from "Redox potential". I will be putting it back in, since I had correcetd an error there (standard conditions for gases were said to be 1 atm in WP, instead of 1 bar..) Pedro Silva 05:41, 23 November 2006 (CST)

Big Speedy Delete

Hi, I'm going through the articles beginning with the letter O to remove all the ones that are straight from Wikipedia, and I notice a lot of them seem to come from you. If there are ones which you plan to do more work on, or you're actually completely happy with the wikipedia text as-is, it is likely to be worthwhile editing the articles to remove the {{bsd}} tags from the articles (and put something in the edit log to flag the change). Thanks! 'Dragon' Dave McKee 15:54, 18 February 2007 (CST)

Ditto, about the articles beginning List of ... I don't know your plans, so did not delete. DavidGoodman 18:43, 18 February 2007 (CST)

Hydrogen bond

Hallo Bill, I'm new to Citizendium (but not to Wikipedia). On Wikipedia I was working on intermolecular forces before I decided to give up on Wikipedia (for the usual reasons). I like to continue on this article here, and saw that the only article in this field was hydrogen bond and that you started that. I put some comments on the talk page of hydrogen bond, and I like to direct your attention to it and hear your opinion. Thank you.Paul Wormer 04:13, 17 August 2007 (CDT)



Silicium is the name used ALL over europe and the official name of the element. Silicon is an english translation there of and can lead to ambiguity and mistakenly seen as silicone. which in effect is siliciumoxane. For that reason the name silicium sould be the preferred name and maybe quoted silicon - but I am afraid the maymen will not see the difference between silicon and silicone.

See the editing I did in the article, and the editing in the editors list. It is english compliant. Continental europe however uses silicium as the official name not an english translation. As advantage it discourages misinterpretation from silicon to silicone - or a typo. Robert Tito |  Talk 

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 Computers and Chemistry articles that could be improved and approved, and some high-priority Natural and Applied Sciences articles that we don't have yet. You can also create new articles via this guide, and contribute to some Computers or Chemistry pages that have been recently edited 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 09:42, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
