When editing on Davis Wiki you can insert an include macro ([[Include(PageToInclude)]]).

Here are the known include files. Not all are serious, some just reflect the odd humor of the moment during some people's wiki editing:

There are includes for requesting content, adding additional information to the comment macro, tagging comments, marking questionable content, marking balance issues, marking historical content, funny stuff, and awards.

Adding Information to the [[Comments]] Macro

[[Include(HIPAA Restrictions)]]

HIPAARestrictions.png Medical Professionals are limited by [WWW]HIPAA as to what information they can make public about their patients, including who their patients are. As such it is very hard for Doctors, Dentists, and Psychiatrists to respond to negative comments on the wiki. Please keep this in mind while reading any comments.
Explains why comments may be un-answered by doctor

r03-integratecomments.png This article is in need of Comment Integration
Please try to combine and move comments into the main article text.
There is information that needs to be copied or moved from the comments into the text of the page

For places that enforce parking rules

Adding Information to the specific comments or groups of comments

icon.png The comments for this entry overwhelmingly reflect a single or small minority of individuals. They are repeatedly posting comments that make similar points or are adding long essays that overwhelm the voice of others. Keep this in mind when reading the comments.

For marking sockpuppets (multiple accounts held by the same person designed to give the appearance that their opinion is widely held)
[[Include(Same IP Address)]]

from the same IP address and may be the same person.
Mark comments left from the same IP Address that May have been left by the same person, less accusatory than sockpuppet

Most encyclopedia salesmen died of gout. Really, it is true and cannot be disputed.png This statement is in need of Fact Checking
Check the facts with an authoritative source, such as a Library, and remove this tag.
"Philip Neustrom is 10 feet tall, and can code on two keyboards at once with his four arms" might be the kind of thing that bears some looking into. After all, he is of average height and only has the usual number of arms

"This is a great page about the mating habits of the African Elephant, but what does it have to do with Davis?"

outofdate.jpeg This entry is horribly out of date.
For the love of God, please update it. Just click the "Edit" button and add current content.
Great information, but a little out of date. Needs an update because now Davis does have more than one traffic light for instance.

Like sands through an hourglass, these are the days of our lives.png The argument below has wasted a whole lot of time.
Why not do something useful instead of just adding to it?
Too many editors are wasting way too much time on an argument that's going nowhere. Get over it already!

drama.png This page is like daytime television minus the hot actresses.
Try a Wiki Chill Pill.
El Generalissimo would be proud to be a part of this crappy soap opera.

Perspective Issues for marking pages that need balance

[[Include(Davis to Sac)]]

 [sacramento] This is also a Sacramento topic covered at the [WWW]Sacramento Wiki.
State Purpose

The mascot of UCD is a NRA plot.png This article is unnecessarily UCD-centric - its text incorrectly assumes that all interested readers are UC Davis affiliates.
Perhaps you could take some time to help rewrite it so that it reflects a broader spectrum of the Davis community?
State Purpose

For marking pages as containing historical content or departed business


Its metabolical processes are of interest only to historians.png The subject of this entry no longer exists in Davis or is a former version of something that came afterwards.
All information here is for historical reference only.

State Purpose
[[Include(Departed Business)]]

We must keep as our goal turning away from production for war and expanding production for peace.png This entry refers to a departed business that has closed or left town.
All information here is for historical reference only.
For marking a business listing page to indicate that the business is no longer in business. An alternative to deleting the page which would remove historical information.

Humor and General Idiocy

mycaringface.jpg Uhh...somebody should do something here. Or not, whatever.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the DavisWiki? Just click the "Edit" button.
citation.jpg This page has little or nothing to do with horse racing. Please add some [wikipedia]Citation, and don't let the neighsayers win.
Questionable Relevance — This entry does not have to do with Steve Ostrowski, ASUCD, or the Davis Wiki itself but rather with the real Davis, and thus does not belong on this wiki. Please bitch about it on the talk entry.
