Robert's Talk Page

Welcome to my corner of Citizendium.

I am an author in the engineering workgroup.

If you have comments on the articles I started pleae put them in the section for each:

X Prize



Centennial Challenges


Armadillo Aerospace

List of Aerospace Companies


Bigelow Aerospace

Tether Challenge


Hi Rob. You need to obtain permission to use the logos you uploaded. CZ does not, at this point, allow fair use. See Help:Images#Copyrights. If I can help please let me know. Stephen Ewen 23:03, 28 April 2007 (CDT)

No need to place {{speedydelete}} on the image pages, so long as you have taken the step of getting permission you have. Great idea about the logo requested image! I placed it into Help:Images. Stephen Ewen 12:40, 29 April 2007 (CDT)
Rob, I cannot find the permission for Image:BigelowLogo.png and have flagged it. Can you help me out? It should go at Image_talk:BigelowLogo.png/Permission as described at Help:Images#Documenting_free_content_releases_and_images_by_permission. If you need further help, just ask.

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! Robert Tito 20:15, 29 January 2007 (CST)

Article deletion

Hi Robert, thanks for asking about my decision concerning the speedydelete for Time Warner. Keep in mind that constables are not allowed to delete just anything. Some things require an editor to request it. The guidelines that determine what I can delete are here. I couldn't find one that Time Warner fit into (maybe self promotion but not really), though I agree the article either needs developement or deleted, but I would like to hear from a Media Workgroup or Business Workgroup editor and let them make the decision. I don't think anyone would miss this article, but you never know. --Matt Innis (Talk) 13:29, 9 May 2007 (CDT)

Boeing article

Hi Bob, I came across an unfinished article on Boeing Company that you started and was wondering if perhaps you would like to continue working on it to completion, and would like to encourage you to do so :). The more articles, the merrier, especially with the visibly decreasing level of writing activities in the engineering workgroup. Thanks. Hendra I. Nurdin 17:14, 14 October 2007 (CDT)
