Welcome to the planning pages
for the

The planning wiki

As future members of Citizendium, please feel free to make this into an excellent project planning resource.

If you wish to contribute to this wiki, in the spirit of Citizendium, please sign up using your own real name as your username.

This wiki is for any documents about the Citizendium project that you would like others to collaborate on. Here: arguments from the discussion forums and mailing lists are summarised; ideas are documented; and technical designs are advanced. It's a useful resource for those who have little time to spare. Please contribute, and add any pages created to Category:Citizendium.

We will move these planning pages to a specially set-up "meta" wiki when one is created.
