2010-10-21 08:48:14 Is there any reason you needed to use a URL shortener? It's not like we're limited to 160 characters here. Hiding the destination of a link is pretty shady, absent some compelling reason to do so. As such, I've undone your edit where you replaced usable URLs with unnecessary redirects. —WilliamLewis
2010-10-21 09:44:17 If you want short links, you can put them in brackets with display text. For example, this: [http://www.longandmessyurl.com/blah/lol/this/is/a/long/link Description] would give you this: Description —TomGarberson
2010-10-26 20:34:36 Ames: I understand you're interested in telling people what to do from your opinion on leaf blowing regulations but on the wiki it is considered wrong to edit or remove comments left by others. You can't regulate here so please stop. —OliviaY
2010-11-01 13:55:04 Cut it out. Seriously. —WilliamLewis
2010-11-01 13:58:41 Hey, I suggested a solution for the Banning leaf-blowers page on its ["Banning leaf-blowers/Talk" Talk page]. Many people here object to the Comments macro because it creates the impression that information above the Comments bar is somehow different from that appearing below. In fact, it's all the same sort of information, from the same source: editors on the Davis Wiki. I agree that we should keep responses out of the For and Against sections, though, for the sake of organization. See the Talk page I linked, and feel free to add your own suggestions. For more info on opinions about the comment bar, see Cut that comment bar out. —TomGarberson
2010-11-01 16:18:33 (I have a head cold of epic proportions, so pardon anything here that doesn't make sense) You seem to misunderstand the nature of the complaints about your moving other people's points to the bottom of the entry. Why does "your" statement get to be at the top, while you keep pushing the viewpoints of others to the bottom? Perhaps understanding that the same rule of thumb applied evenly results in an edit like this makes it clear as to why pushing the voices of other people to the bottom of the entry is a problem... why should your voice dominate over all the others around you? There's room for everybody's viewpoints, and there's not really such a thing as static text on the wiki. Content mutates and changes as everybody adds their own views. It's just the nature of how wikis work. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
2010-11-02 02:07:52 Thanks Tom, I forgot about the wiki text-link feature.
Everyone, No interest in bugging you, I am just moving comments, not deleting. The only thing I parsed was a very offensive comment that I made into garbled symbols. My view on that was no need for personal attacks.
Also, I think that you can start a page expressing an issue. Everyone can comment and add, but butcher what you created to get your point of view heard is not right. An appropriate way of dealing with this is what someone else did which is create arguments against. That way, everyone ads to the side they believe in without damaging others. It's like a sand castle when you were a kid, you don't destroy others' castle, but if left there, you may respectfully (important keyword) make an add-on.
@Olivia: That is how I felt exactly, that people were editing my text instead of respectfully arguing against in the area destined for that.
I hope I didn't bug anyone too much, honestly, no harm intended. —amesguich
