Me in Cayucos, near San Luis Obispo, January 2008.

I grew up in the Sacramento area, but I've lived in Marysville since January 2009. I created the Yuba-Sutter Wiki in April 2009 and have also contributed significantly to the Chico Wiki, Nevada County Wiki, and Sacramento Wiki.

I've also been working on the website since 1999. My username and domain name should not be interpreted as implying that all queer people chose to be queer. Different queer people have different experiences and are free to form different opinions accordingly. I am asserting that I chose to be queer, and I feel the choice I made was a good, brave, and wise choice to live up to the moral mandates of my own conscience and not to let the pressures of a fearful society deter me. Whether other people feel they chose to love the people and/or gender(s) they do is for them to decide.


2009-04-03   Hey, I looked up the CSS file, and you need to alter the top of layout.css. It has a 15px nudge (twice, once for Internet Explorer, once for everybody else). Replace both times it says "15px" with "0", and it looks fine.

#banner {
  margin: 0px;
  padding-top: 0px;
  padding-bottom: 0px;
  background-position: 0 -17px;
  _background-position: 0 -85px; /*IE Hack, draws from bottom rather than top */

See ebg13 for an example. And welcome to Wiki Spot! —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

2009-04-04 15:07:24   Glad you got it working! By the way, you might want to reconsider having that many tabs and just provide links from the Front Page. That way it won't wrap around on smaller screens and make the site more "busy". (Just a suggestion, feel free to ignore it) ;) —JabberWokky

2009-04-17 07:33:10   Sometime in the next week I'm going to start a Help with CSS entry, and one of the things is an example of how to change the local icon for Wikipedia. If you're interested in doing that here, I'd like a wiki to cite as an example of what it looks like (since you use it so much right now). —JabberWokky

  • Yes, actually, I'm very interested in doing that. —queerbychoice

2009-06-07 12:07:40   Thanks: great edit and good catch. —JasonAller

2009-07-24 18:34:18   Fantastic list of Wally Herger links at the Chico Wiki. Thanks for your help on all those pages there! —RyanMikulovsky

2009-08-05 15:48:33   Nice shrub photos! —JabberWokky

2009-09-01 01:17:55   Thanks for creating the Yuba-Sutter Wiki. You have put a lot of time and effort into it obviously. It is off to a great start with your many photos as well. Good work! —

  • Thank you! And thank you also for your contributions to it today. —queerbychoice

2009-09-08 15:45:01   Hey there, somewhere in my todo list I planned to put together a Marysville/Yuba City wiki, but it looks like you've got an awesome start on it already. I have the domains marysvillewiki and yubacitywiki (.com/.net/.org) that I'd be happy to donate to the project. Just let me know if you'd like to use either for the yubasutter wiki here. Great job you've done so far and great photos! —Rodney

  • Wow, what a generous offer! Unfortunately, using either one of them seems like it would be a little misleading, since it's a wiki for both (both entire counties, even) rather than just one city or the other. I sometimes think I should have created it as separate wikis for Yuba City and Marysville, so that pages like 5th Street, Marysville could be just "5th Street." But it seemed like just one or the other would draw on too small a population base to really get going, and they would need to duplicate too much of each other's content. Anyway, it's too late to separate them now, so I think I'll have to decline the domains. Thank you, though!

I noticed that you've contributed quite a bit to the Elk Grove Wiki. Do you live in Elk Grove or here? If you live in Elk Grove, what's your connection to the Yuba-Sutter area? I really liked your page about the State Theatre in Marysville. —queerbychoice

  • Yes, I'm in Elk Grove now, but I grew up in the Marysville area and worked at the State Theatre for years. Have some very fond memories of that place :) Makes sense about the domain names. Neither one really fit the nice combo you've created here —Rodney

2009-09-24 14:22:26   My natural inclination for balance keeps prompting me to want to put a pro-homophobia point on the homophobia entry, but I can't think of a single point in that favor. Darn it, I think I'll let this one particular topic sit without an opposing viewpoint. ;) Nice work on both wikis! —JabberWokky

  • Sooner or later, I'm sure someone will do that. This area isn't the People's Republic of Davis! —queerbychoice

2010-06-02 14:13:26   I posted a photo of the Fremont Weir WLA. Feel free to crop it to a more manageable size if you are so inclined. The center portion is more in-focus. I'm not skilled enough to figure out how to do it on this page, sorry. If it can't be cropped and is too big to leave you may remove it. —

  • Thank you so much! Photos can be displayed at smaller than their actual size by adding the text "thumbnail, #" (where # is the number of pixels that the long side of the picture should take up) after the image filename. I edited the Fremont Weir page so that your photo now displays as 480 pixels wide.—queerbychoice
