2009-11-08 11:53:56 Why remove the founding date from Mojo Flow Studio? —JasonAller
2009-11-08 12:07:04 Removing other users comments from business entries has generally been agreed upon as a bad thing by the Wiki Community. —JasonAller
2009-11-08 13:28:57 You may be a minimalist, but we're mostly information junkies. Stuff like founding dates and such are important to us. We're not really a business listing site, in case there has been any confusion. We're a resource on Davis and businesses are part of Davis. We also have pages on Town History, interesting local residents, Bicycling, and much much more. Don't think of Mojo Flow Studio as an ad that is short, snappy, and intended to drive business to you. Think of it as a community view of what your business is and what it offers. —WilliamLewis
2009-11-08 14:05:08 Hey, looks like you got off to a rough start at first. There are a couple things that might help you understand where everybody is coming from. First off, the entry about Mojo Flow Studio isn't your entry. It's part of the project to document Davis, including the studio (since the studio is part of Davis). This isn't a business listings site, it's a community project to document all the aspects of the Davis community, including (but not limited to) businesses. Thus, neat little things like what business used to be in that location or when it was established, how the building was renovated, if the business sponsored a car in the Dixon May Fair Demolition Derby... all those neat little details are part of that effort. In fact, old businesses that haven't been around for many years (and past Police Chiefs, old road plans, information about the involvement Davis had in WWII)... all of those are part of the community of Davis and thus documented on the wiki. That said, there's plenty of opportunity to add quite a bit of currently relevant information to the entry that would be of use to people considering going to Mojo Flow. The entry is written by the community, and you're part of the community. Welcome to the wiki! —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards, (814) 889-8845
2009-11-08 14:07:04 RE: searching for "fitness"- There are a lot of fitness-related pages here. If I search for fitness I see the page Gyms & Fitness at the top. Most people would click on that and find the Mojo page, which is linked from there. —PhilipNeustrom
2010-01-05 15:16:18 Maybe you can explain on the pages that those classes aren't offered anymore? You might also be able to move some of the information to the studio page and delete the other pages. Be sure to explain the history of it all on whatever page remains though. —NickSchmalenberger
2010-01-05 18:02:10 I moved your question you posted at Davis Wiki Oracle to Wiki Community/General Discussion, a more appropriate place where more people will see it. —WilliamLewis
2010-01-05 21:10:46 A line like * ''Looking to get fit? Davis offers many ["Gyms & Fitness" gyms and fitness centers]!'' is called a link back. It is intended to appear on all of the pages that are linked from the topic page, in this case Gyms & Fitness. Removing it lessen the value of having a page about Gyms & Fitness and makes it harder for people to navigate around the larger topic of Gyms & Fitness. Generally these link backs are inserted right before the comment macro so that they don't disrupt the content of the entry. —JasonAller
2010-07-23 10:37:07 Just to let you know, I made a few changes to the Pilates Flow Fitness page. It was extremely promotional, with more and more links to the for-profit website. If you haven't done so yet, please read over the Welcome to the Wiki/Business Owner page for why that's a problem. —TomGarberson
2010-09-19 13:33:53 I added the macro [[Include(NoLongerExists)]] to the Moms in Motion page so that there is now a banner at the top that reads, "The subject of this entry no longer exists in Davis or is a former version. All information here is for historical reference only." No one wants to confuse people; they're just trying to document things about Davis, past and present. —CovertProfessor
2010-09-19 14:08:27 Who is "the wiki"? You're as empowered as anybody else here. If you notice something wrong, keep in mind it was added by an actual living person out of the kindness of their heart. It's a bit thoughtless to walk into a open picnic where everybody brought food from their homes and are sharing it with all their neighbors and then start complaining "I wish the picnic wasn't such a lousy cook". There is no "the picnic", in the same way there's no "the wiki". It's a bunch of neighbors sharing with each other. Specific to your complaint, it's quite easy to delete an entry — everybody (including you) can do it to any entry on the wiki (even the Front Page). Hit "edit" and then the "Delete" button. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
- Of course (to continue JW's analogy), if you start to throw someone's dish in the trash, they might not be too happy with you and will probably try to rescue it. —CovertProfessor
- I think crpikes point was maybe that the moms in motion page was never fully "cooked" to begin with because we never really knew what it was, having never actually amounted to anything. If we should do anything differently about this problem, maybe we could have a page for flyers and stuff, that we hope to turn into better pages someday instead of making a seed page. I think most of the time the seed pages work ok though, so I'm ok with either approach. I think we should be more welcoming of crpikes information about what happened to moms in motion though, instead of criticizing them for not editing the page. -NickSchmalenberger
- Oh, I am very happy to have crpike's information on the page — it tells a more complete story of what happened. I didn't mean to criticize crpike for not editing the page, but rather try to explain how a page could be edited to show that the information was no longer current instead of just deleting the page. What I reacted negatively to was the part that said, "I wish the Wiki was a little more careful before creating new pages like this. Now there is no way of removing it. It has probably wasted quite a few peoples time." I don't see the problem with documenting people's attempts — even failed attempts — to start up endeavors in Davis. Of course, then all of us are on the hook to keep such pages updated and to note when they are out of date, and crpike started that process; I tried to help out with it. —CovertProfessor
Yeah, I agree but I think we shouldn't be too defensive. The edit/comment nitpick also bothers me, its a wiki after all so we can integrate it cooperatively as you did very well. Maybe we should also say something on such pages like, I saw this flyer one day, has anybody gone to one of these classes? That way it might help explain that its just some flyer. crpike's concern sounds legitimate to me, even if the way they said it doesn't take as much responsibility for it as would be nice :( -NickSchmalenberger
2012-03-12 15:23:52 That might well be. I got an e-mail from one of the instructors there, though, saying that the info was an unauthorized copy and was out of date. Kinda weird for a student to do that without contacting the people at the studio. —TomGarberson
2012-05-15 21:09:56 Hey, somehow I missed your comment to me. I renamed the page and edited the entry to note the name change. A renamed page will redirect to the new one. I'm going to update the links now. I like the way the new name rolls off the tongue. —JabberWokky
2013-12-16 17:27:47 last I checked 2014 hasn't happened yet. Did ASUCD suspend EC in 13? shady Also Yelp salesmen point to the slowing of the wiki as a silly selling point for yelp advertisement.
Alot of the regulars have been chased away, not that many people feel comfortable unlerking, especially with the naming convention of real names and everyone being too scared of their future to share in the today —StevenDaubert
2013-12-19 14:24:44 Davis WIki has a BoD as well as local wiki. They have a wiki. You can always ask Philbo about these things he is happy to point you in the right direction —StevenDaubert
