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!

Good to see you on board, Kelly! --Larry Sanger 13:20, 28 March 2007 (CDT)

Happy to be here and looking forward to participating.

and hopefully, if nothing else, it will help me to decipher what Jason is talking about half the time :) --Kelly Patterson 15:59, 28 March 2007 (CDT)

I mean both. The best pictures would be those that show play- particularly between several species, or correction. Like an adult dog correcting a puppy or a cat correcting a dog. Also social interaction, like everybody sleeping in a pile. Also any kind of fun behaviors. Better for your own privacy if the pictures were ones that you were comfortable with released to the world- any way -I started this Gallery of Domestic animals.CZ:Image_Bank_-_The_Gallery_of_Domestic_Animals Thanks so much! Can't wait to see them! Nancy Sculerati 19:06, 29 March 2007 (CDT)

copyrights on images

Kelly, great pictures! Can you please go back and place a copyright notice on each of them that you have uploaded. I think these are yours, right, so either you need to release them to Citizendium or the public domain before we can use them. Just a small note saying something like, "These were taken by me, Kelly Patterson, and I release all rights to the public domain" or something like that. There are reasons not to release them (i.e. other people can copy them to anywhere, etc) so make sure that is what you want to do. When you upload new ones, just put the message in the box under the file name. See copyright for images for more information. I think Nancy has gotten pretty good at it, too so she can help you. Otherwise, just ask. Thanks! --Matt Innis (Talk) 23:46, 31 March 2007 (CDT)

Response to Matt Innis

Thanks Matt-- I knew I needed to do something but hadn't quite figured out how to yet. Thanks for the help. I've corrected them all. Thanks again- --Kelly Patterson 00:11, 1 April 2007 (CDT)

Cute kids:) That should do it! --Matt Innis (Talk) 01:25, 1 April 2007 (CDT)

deleting Kilmer Middle School

Before that page hopefully gets deleted, I'd be interested if you had an opinion or nuances to add regarding what I said on its discussion page. I'll paste my comment here in case the original gets deleted too soon:

What's the use of merely documenting the bare existence of a school? Even if someone diligently maintained the list of faculty, and even a list of notable alumni, I still wouldn't see the appropriateness of such trivia. I'm particularly interested in seeing articles on schools that document the school's history and the ways a particular school is involved with its surrounding community, and its social contexts (generally speaking). I think any obscure school could make for a fine article as long as its history could be told such that its intersection with larger surrounding historical considerations are clear and worthy of note. If one could document, for example, the way a U.S. school handled racial and ethnic issues throughout the different decades of its history, or perhaps how its educational policies fared through different economic periods, I think that would make for a worthy article regardless of how obscure or typical the school may be.
