-'''Welcome to the ''temporary'' wiki planning page for the ''[http://www.citizendium.org Citizendium]!'''''+==NOTICE==
-As future members of Citizendium, please feel free to make this into an excellent project planning resource.+This Wiki is now closed. For discussions on Citizendium, please go to the [http://smf.citizendium.org CZ forums]. All discussions from this Wiki have been archived there.
-''If you wish to contribute to this wiki, please sign up using your own real name as your username.''+To access the CZ pilot project, go [http://pilot.citizendium.org here].
- +
-In particular, please use this page for any documents about the ''Citizendium'' project that you would like others to collaborate on. In the first week of this page's existence we have mainly been engaging in debate here. Now that there are both [http://www.citizendium.org/lists.html mailing lists] and [http://smf.citizendium.org/ forums] available, it might be better to use these pages to ''summarize'' debates, the various positions, etc. This is really useful for those who don't have time to read every post in the lists and forums. Also, please add any pages created to Category:Citizendium.+
- +
-We will move these planning pages to a specially-set up "meta" wiki when one is created.+

-====Citizendium mailing lists====+
- +
-The [[Citizendium mailing lists]] are active. Maturing topics are being ''refactored'' onto the [[#Project Pages|Project Pages]] listed below. Please help. Posting is moderated and limited per day.+
- +
-The mailing lists are a place to focus on quality over quantity; somewhere to put minds together and carefully and at length come to well-reasoned, deeply-reasoned recommendations for the project.+
- +
-:''See [[Working rules for the Mailing lists]].''+
- +
-====Discussion forums====+
- +
-Citizendium discussion forums are now live at http://smf.citizendium.org.+
- +
-This is the place for chat and informal exchanges for the project. The forums are moderated.+
- +
-====Project pages====+
- +
-The [[#Project Pages|Project Pages]] are public discussion pages. They contain refactored and summarised discussions.+
- +
-These are places for digests of arguments made and information gathered. A working document may be constructed at the top of each project page.+
- +
-===22 September 2006===+
- +
-As of Friday, 22 September 2006, 06:17 GMT, a search on Google, using the term "Citizendium", returned over one million hits. Library staff around the world, whose job it is to monitor blogs to do with new forms of information dissemination and information technology, have already noticed a huge upsurge in interest in this project, as well as links to this wiki.--[[User:Phil Wardle|Phil Wardle]] 11:33, 22 September 2006 (PDT)+

-* In the absence of a bulletin board, it would be helpful if volunteers trawl through the mailing-list emails looking for the really cogent topics for dicussion and extract them onto the [[#project pages|project pages]] listed here. Don't forget to link new project pages/sub-pages. --[[User:Peter Hitchmough|Peter Hitchmough]] 06:42, 21 September 2006 (PDT)+
-** If it'll help, we could start by knocking together a short chrono summary. By short, I mean who posted, what the subject line was, and the gist of the post, and by 'the gist of' I mean 'an order of magnitude smaller than'. I'll try and grovel through the archives for a first-pass version within 24ish hours of now (gotta sleep first, it's night here), slapping it up as [[Citizendium-l at a glance]]. I think that will be more wieldy for a topic-trawler than the whole raw history. See the forest for the trees and all.
