[edit] Random footnotes

[edit] New manager

Every so often somebody pops up on CZ who is making a fuzz and tries to reorganize things. Usually such pop ups write a lot on their user page and the forum but hardly anything in the encyclopedia. The latest pop up is Christine Bush who is special in refusing the use of the forum. Wonder how long she will last. --P. Wormer (talk) 08:59, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Anyone know what happened to Larry's photo?

Not that I'm desperate to have Larry's mug smirking at me every time I read the article, but does anyone have any idea where File:L Sanger.jpg went to? It doesn't appear at all in the deletion log, or any of the logs for that matter. I'm not familiar enough with this wiki to know whether there's another place I should be looking.

Err … it's still there, isn't it? Scream!! (talk) 08:53, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Works for me now. Please try again - David Gerard (talk) 09:48, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
It's invisible to me. Ro Thorpe (talk) 12:25, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
OK, that's odd: I get it in one browser but not the other. Will investigate ... - David Gerard (talk) 13:25, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Seems to be there for me now. DinoMight (talk) 20:53, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Now that the file's there, I notice it's from Commons. Maybe there was some sort of glitch or something on that end the other day, not sure. DinoMight (talk) 20:55, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

[edit] What law exactly are we expected to presume Citizendium broke?

The article makes some references to some violations of citizendium copyright policy, and then from that fact presupposes some sort of "law" was broken without telling us what law or how it was broken ( accusing others of a crime or civil wrong/tort in a "hit piece" without evidence can get one sued for libel ) Only major flaw in this article I have found.LogicMaster777 (talk) 17:22, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

The details can be found in the citations: keep in mind this is amateur lawyering on behalf of a third party, which isn't a formula for legal rectitude. I don't think there's any direct assertions of breaking the law in the article, just that they aren't big on maintaining their images properly. Reads like a tempest in a teapot to me, and I could personally do without the whole section. Ikanreed (talk) 18:24, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Agreed, this whole section tends to undermine the credibility of the article more than it does to support its general thrust in my opinion. It uses pretty questionable and subjective sources and is basically an opinion presented as fact a la Alex Jones/Fox News.LogicMaster777 (talk) 18:35, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
It's not quite that bad, either. Citing our own talk page as a source is tacky, though. Ikanreed (talk) 18:39, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
