For whatever reason, the Citizendium has been subject to large amounts of misunderstanding. This page is devoted to correcting those errors.

1. We're not experts-only.

We love experts--we admit it. But this is still a remarkably open project. You can be an author with no degrees and only a basic facility with English. We agree heartily with the larger "Web 2.0" crowd that most reasonably well educated people have something to contribute to a project like this. Our youngest registered members are 13, and we have some active high school students who have done good work.

2. We're a top-down project, with expert editors giving orders to underlings.

Nope. Wrong. We're a wiki--yes, we really are.
