2016-02-25 19:57:25 Hey David, it looks like you were tripped up in some of the anti-spam code I deployed last night. Things should be back to normal now! —PhilipNeustrom
2016-02-25 20:53:09 You may need to make a dummy edit to the front page. It may be a cache issue, yup —PhilipNeustrom
2016-03-15 17:47:04 The latest Davis spam vector should hopefully be closed now (e.g. we shouldn't see that type of spam again). I hope! —PhilipNeustrom
I removed what I did from the Linda Katehi page because it was cribbed from press releases and the like. 1) We shouldn't be using such fluff (though we certainly can use it to write our own stuff). 2) We probably can't distribute it under a Creative Commons license, either, as alluded to in my edit comment. If you think it's worthwhile that people read this stuff, just link to the originals.
And there is probably more, but I'm too lazy.
- In general, information in press releases is considered news and is not only okay to reproduce (with citation), it is encouraged because the organization putting out the press release wants the information disseminated. You are removing wholesale information from the Katehi page. If you think it is too biased, please take the time to rewrite it. I will add the links you provided. Don't just get rid of it. Also, it would be great if you took the time to create an account and become part of the wiki community. Thanks for the participation. -DG
- Links were already there...
2016-04-14 13:06:50 About Katehi, I find it suspicious something is deleting info there now. She is very highly profiled in the news lately, with students protesting her staying on, and her overpaid position, her 'extra curricular' jobs. I can totally relate to these students, still being angry after "Pepperspray Pike", they never forgot that either. Somebody should mirror recent Katehi news in the Davis Wiki, maybe I will, as soon as I find the time. Or you? Thanks. —ConstantiaOomen
2016-04-14 13:55:19 Sounds good to me. :-) —ConstantiaOomen
2016-04-22 00:51:37 Just doing what I can. Many of the pages on DavisWiki seems to be getting out of date, and I'd like to try to help revive it a little. —JoshuaEndow
2016-11-09 17:53:49 Thank you! But now I've lost the link to Featured Page, I mean: on the front page. It's leading directly to the website of UC... Hm... ? —ConstantiaOomen
2016-11-09 18:08:31 Oh, of course, I would need to make a new page out of it... Thanks, "Featured page" is better than "Community Alert". —ConstantiaOomen
2017-02-08 17:20:03 Thank you. —JabberWokky
