- I haven't heard of him as far as I recall, but Scotland is part of the United Kingdom, so he's probably British. Peter jackson (talk) 14:58, 26 February 2017 (CET)
Hi! Sorry to add this here, but I follow the goings-on at Citizendium and this is the place where I can get in touch with one of its main editors.
Out of curiosity, I've followed the Citizendium discussion about ways to improve Citizendium's position as a wiki. (Sorry that I've asked here, but I don't have a CZ account.) I think what's important to remember was that while Larry Sanger was an editor at CZ, simply his presence helped get the website a lot of publicity; but once he left, so did many other contributors, and the project has since lost most of its editors.
What every wiki needs is different. At Wikipedia, I think that more individual attention and cooperation is necessary for the website to do significantly better than it's doing currently; at this wiki, I think more original articles about important topics are needed, and at CZ, it's hard to say but I think more contributors more regularly adding new content would be extremely important.
I've noticed before in comments on CZ a statement (I believe by you) saying that the website needs to cut down on pseudoscience, but unfortunately I don't know where that content is on the wiki, so I can't give my thoughts. I just think that, in the discussion currently at CZ, the above may work well as some ideas to mention there. But whatever you think is best.
- Nice to see someone's interested.
- Contributors have been disappearing from CZ for a variety of reasons for a long time now. Larry's phasing out is one of them. One can't really say how many there still are as quite a number of people just pop in occasionally.
- People were saying that about pseudoscience a long time ago. I agreed with that & may well have said so. It's also a permanent fixture of RationalWiki's criticism of CZ.
