Hello all (:
Kidding about the grad part. I decided to stay for another year at UCD. Where's the fun in graduating in three years anyway?
2010-06-18 10:11:24 So, has Davis Life Magazine done an article on the Davis Wiki yet? —CovertProfessor
2010-06-21 06:36:57 I removed the link from Bank Robberies because: 1) the format you used broke the TableOfContents macro and 2) the story had no link to Davis Wiki. Serioiusly it would have been good to add a "for more information about Bank Robberies in Davis see Davis Wiki" line at the end of that story. Without such links back to the Wiki the media sections start to look like spam. It didn't help that I just removed some real spam right before removing your edit, as the parallels between what you and the spammer added were pretty close. They added a link to the Board of Education page about essay writing. —JasonAller
2010-06-21 14:36:18 Hi Jason. First of all, I apologize for my mistake. I will make sure to triple check my edits from now on. And secondly, I can't help but feel like you are insinuating that I am the spammer. Is that the case? —mtsai
- I don't want to put words in JA's mouth, but it seems to me as though he is saying that your actions are indistinguishable from the spammer's, not that you are the same person who put the spam up on the Board of Education page. Frankly, I feel the same way. I see these DLM links pop up everywhere and they just seem like ways to draw more attention to DLM, not real contributions to the wiki, and I resent that. That's why I asked whether you'd done an article on the Davis Wiki. Or, JA's suggestion to link back to us is also a good one. Or, do you feel as though this is just a public resource for you to take advantage of without giving back to it? Because again, that's what it looks like to me. —CovertProfessor
2010-06-21 14:56:05 Hey Jason, I just wanted to clarify that the story you were referring to was the link that I posted. I don't personally write the blogs and it was a few months back but I'll suggest linking back to Davis Wiki to the editor. And what do you recommend me doing instead of just randomly inserting media sections then (other than, of course, referring back to Davis Wiki). —mtsai
2010-07-28 13:49:15 Hi mtsai. I just discovered that 179 pages on the wiki currently have links to DLM's website or DLM email addresses. I can't speak for anyone else, but I have a serious problem with this situation. Per the wiki's agreement with the IRS, it cannot be used as a promotional venue for for-profit organizations. Even if that weren't true, I personally have issues with it being used as a feeder for a for-profit website. I've started a Talk page to discuss this issue over at Davis Life Magazine/Talk, and your input as a representative (apparently) for DLM would be valuable. —TomGarberson
