But it is simply untrue to say that the Band-uh cheats their opponents in the battle. I explained on WilliamLewis's page that the wiki page dedicated to the battle is confusing and has several inaccuracies. In its current state, it's probably not the best page to base statements on the featured page off of. I welcome the opportunity to discuss the facts with you, on account of I am somebody who was actually present during the wee hours of the night for some of the battles in question. While I think it is healthy for people to have a discussion, such a discussion obviously doesn't belong in the form of reverts on the featured page. Therefore, since there is not consensus on this issue, I propose leaving the featured page text neutral for the time being and allow any necessary discussion on an appropriate page. --["Users/RyanCoates"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-04-15 02:04:54'' [[nbsp]] The "rule" that the Aggie Band always wins is not really a rule, people sort of just say that because they have never lost. In the case of an agreed tie, each band plays their fight song in order. Tradition is that the Band-uh is always the last band to march into the PD battle, therefore they are the last to play their fight song in the case of a tie. If they played their fight song first, then they would have played one fewer songs than the other bands and it wouldn't be much of a tie. I can see how to an audience this would appear like the Band-uh was winning a tie, so to speak, but that's not really what's happening. In the absence of a tie agreement, the battle becomes winnable. That the Aggie Band always wins is not really a rule, but more of a creed among Aggie bandsmen. Some other band could plausibly come with more music and stamina and outlast the Band-uh. Some have tried this, but have been unable to exhaust the Band-uh's library. Just because nobody has yet been able to outplay the Ags doesn't that they couldn't or won't in the future. --["Users/RyanCoates"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-04-30 18:46:36'' [[nbsp]] I prototyped a little threaded shadow site called Mondo (a type of border grass... get it?

Every election I hear a few of the same issues repeated and it seems like the people who got elected never kept their end of the bargain. To me, it looks like they have no more power over these issues than the average student and the only way to get these issues looked at would be to apply as a student adviser to the Chancellor or something and these promises are used to feed on ignorant voters (loaded question is loaded). --["Users/hankim"]<br> + Well, yes and no. I can give you some sort of answer about student representation on ["CCFIT"] for and other ["Administrative Advisory Committees"], and that would be factual but not really relevetory. So far as I can tell, your philosophy of student government is that it should be restrained to things in which the association has a direct fiscal influence (or maybe some external advocacy too, not sure there). Those are the places where the association has hard power. But there are also areas in which they have soft (diplomatic) power, and the provision of student services by the campus administration is one of those places.<br> + Students are ultimately the consumers of the University, so there are a variety of ways student leaders can wield soft power. They can attempt to embarass the administration, either by extensive protests or scathing editorials (see ["UCSA"]). They can try to tattle to the Regents. They can shmooze their way to getting inside attention (see ["Brian McInnis"]). Or, more than likely, they will just sufficiently annoy the administration that they'll do something about it (see ["Rob Roy"], or even ["Keith Shively"]). The point is, soft power is real, and providing ["Stapler Liberation Front" staplers in computer labs] is not something that would have happened without student leadership.<br> + That said, soft power is unreliable, even from the best wielders of it. So I think you should look carefully at the person making a lot of promises that they need others to deliver on. If it's someone without the social graces to shmooze, the persistence to annoy, and the eloquence to indict, then their promises will likely remain pie-in-the-sky. Contrarily, if the candidate promises only things that they know they can deliver, it's really kind of boring. It shows a lack of vision for what student life should be. It's possible, even in this poor economic climate, to get computer lab printing back up to 200 pages/quarter -- but it would take the kind of tenacity I rarely see in a student government officer. --["Users/BrentLaabs"]<br> + It would be really easy to get computer lab printing up to 200 pages/quarter. ASUCD could budget a chunk of money to hand to CLM. --wl<br> + And yet I'd just assume that the people increasing fees at double the rate of inflation pay for it, not the student government who hasn't raised fees since 1979. -BL<br> + So there is not much error in my assuming that the average student can have as much power as someone who is a part of the ASUCD as long as they are a sufficiently large enough thorn in the side of the UC higher-ups? --["Users/hankim"]<br> + Being a student government representative gives you a social context for representing the opinion of students -- no more, no less. Without the AS, you'd want some kind of other social context, be it a student AAC position or just a club officership. One caveat here is that campus officials tend to give more weight to officials higher up in the student government hierarchy, and city officials give slightly higher weight to ASUCD executives. This distinction is completely lost at the state and national levels of advocacy, in my experience. -BL<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-02-22 23:57:31'' [[nbsp]] Hahahaha!

Your response to her doesn't indicate that you didn't understand the phrase, but it does indicate that you were brushing off what she was saying with (as you say) a flippant comment. So, then she says something that amounts to "it's all too easy to brush off a concern if you never had experiences that would allow you to fully understand the concern" and you call her a racist. I think that that was out of line on your part. You admittedly didn't understand what she was saying at first, yet you somehow knew she was making a racist comment? You later accused her of making an ad hominem.

I might be a Native American whose people were kicked off of their land and shuttled to a reservation where no food would grow and where there was nothing to hunt. I might have grown up in a culture that was completely demoralized, groping to resuscitate the tattered remains of that culture which the government sought to wipe out through "education" and "reform." I might have watched some of the members of my family deal with this through drugs and alcohol and watched others succeed in avoiding that fate only by leaving their people. All of this as a result of those who proclaimed their right to "occupy" lands that belong to my ancestors. And I might be one of the successful ones who fought my way to college and who has been trying ever since to bring the ongoing plight of my people to the attention of others. So, when someone like that expresses a concern about the name "Occupy" and you reply, "Those people might need to chill and realize that one can't get everything one asks for" I might think that having to pay high tuition isn't the worst thing that can happen to someone. I might wonder when my people will get anything that they asked for, and why our concerns are always, again and again, being brushed over. I might hope that in a university community, people would at least listen to what I had to say and not just tell me to "chill" without considering my concerns -- that they could disagree with me about the name of the movement, but that they should at least acknowledge where I am coming from and not just dismiss me and my concerns. I might point out that that person's privileged position, based on their race and gender, is why they fail to see my concerns worthy of any consideration. And if that person takes offense at me pointing this out, I might be inclined to say, "those people need to chill and realize that having someone pointing out your privilege is not the worst thing that can happen to someone."<br> + <br> + That is my genuine attempt to explain what has happened here. If you still think you are entirely the wronged party... well, I'm not sure what else I can say, other than I think you are sorely mistaken. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-04-04 11:05:09'' [[nbsp]] In fact, I think it does belong on the wiki.

Maybe later. Right now I feel as though I have gone out of my way to explain things patiently and clearly with very little response to the substance of my comments on your part. I'd like to hear something from you other than your feelings about being personally attacked. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-04-05 13:12:40'' [[nbsp]] Well, yes, there is probably no point in continuing that particular conversation now.

In the future I would expect you to actually engage in dialogues that you begin. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-04-06 05:16:35'' [[nbsp]] I never said a thing the whole time cause I knew you would speak for me<br> + <br> + Thanks --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-04-06 07:54:12'' [[nbsp]] Your long explanation on my page is all beside the point. As I said to WL, I have no problem with principled and respectful disagreement over whether the term "occupy" is appropriate. What I do object to is what you did initially -- which was to completely dismiss the concerns with the line "Those people might need to chill and realize that one can't get everything one asks for." Now, if you want to say that you had in mind your pragmatic reasons all along, well, that's interesting, but not really relevant to others who cannot read your mind and who can only judge by your actions. It is also exceedingly doubtful to me that anyone who really understood those concerns would say something dismissive like that (not to mention that you admitted that you didn't know of any use of the term "occupy" to imply "oppression," so I am not sure how you can now claim to have reflected on those concerns). Again, one can understand those concerns and still ''disagree'' with them, but one who simply ''dismisses'' those concerns is, I think, in a position where they have not suffered under an occupation. And the gargantuan leap by where you come to call MW a racist -- sorry, still not buying it, for the reasons I have already stated, and whatever you think of her tactics pragmatically has nothing to do with whether her statement was racist or not.

But it is simply untrue to say that the Band-uh cheats their opponents in the battle. I explained on WilliamLewis's page that the wiki page dedicated to the battle is confusing and has several inaccuracies. In its current state, it's probably not the best page to base statements on the featured page off of. I welcome the opportunity to discuss the facts with you, on account of I am somebody who was actually present during the wee hours of the night for some of the battles in question. While I think it is healthy for people to have a discussion, such a discussion obviously doesn't belong in the form of reverts on the featured page. Therefore, since there is not consensus on this issue, I propose leaving the featured page text neutral for the time being and allow any necessary discussion on an appropriate page. --["Users/RyanCoates"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-04-15 02:04:54'' [[nbsp]] The "rule" that the Aggie Band always wins is not really a rule, people sort of just say that because they have never lost. In the case of an agreed tie, each band plays their fight song in order. Tradition is that the Band-uh is always the last band to march into the PD battle, therefore they are the last to play their fight song in the case of a tie. If they played their fight song first, then they would have played one fewer songs than the other bands and it wouldn't be much of a tie. I can see how to an audience this would appear like the Band-uh was winning a tie, so to speak, but that's not really what's happening. In the absence of a tie agreement, the battle becomes winnable. That the Aggie Band always wins is not really a rule, but more of a creed among Aggie bandsmen. Some other band could plausibly come with more music and stamina and outlast the Band-uh. Some have tried this, but have been unable to exhaust the Band-uh's library. Just because nobody has yet been able to outplay the Ags doesn't that they couldn't or won't in the future. --["Users/RyanCoates"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-04-30 18:46:36'' [[nbsp]] I prototyped a little threaded shadow site called Mondo (a type of border grass... get it?

Every election I hear a few of the same issues repeated and it seems like the people who got elected never kept their end of the bargain. To me, it looks like they have no more power over these issues than the average student and the only way to get these issues looked at would be to apply as a student adviser to the Chancellor or something and these promises are used to feed on ignorant voters (loaded question is loaded). --["Users/hankim"]<br> - Well, yes and no. I can give you some sort of answer about student representation on ["CCFIT"] for and other ["Administrative Advisory Committees"], and that would be factual but not really relevetory. So far as I can tell, your philosophy of student government is that it should be restrained to things in which the association has a direct fiscal influence (or maybe some external advocacy too, not sure there). Those are the places where the association has hard power. But there are also areas in which they have soft (diplomatic) power, and the provision of student services by the campus administration is one of those places.<br> - Students are ultimately the consumers of the University, so there are a variety of ways student leaders can wield soft power. They can attempt to embarass the administration, either by extensive protests or scathing editorials (see ["UCSA"]). They can try to tattle to the Regents. They can shmooze their way to getting inside attention (see ["Brian McInnis"]). Or, more than likely, they will just sufficiently annoy the administration that they'll do something about it (see ["Rob Roy"], or even ["Keith Shively"]). The point is, soft power is real, and providing ["Stapler Liberation Front" staplers in computer labs] is not something that would have happened without student leadership.<br> - That said, soft power is unreliable, even from the best wielders of it. So I think you should look carefully at the person making a lot of promises that they need others to deliver on. If it's someone without the social graces to shmooze, the persistence to annoy, and the eloquence to indict, then their promises will likely remain pie-in-the-sky. Contrarily, if the candidate promises only things that they know they can deliver, it's really kind of boring. It shows a lack of vision for what student life should be. It's possible, even in this poor economic climate, to get computer lab printing back up to 200 pages/quarter -- but it would take the kind of tenacity I rarely see in a student government officer. --["Users/BrentLaabs"]<br> - It would be really easy to get computer lab printing up to 200 pages/quarter. ASUCD could budget a chunk of money to hand to CLM. --wl<br> - And yet I'd just assume that the people increasing fees at double the rate of inflation pay for it, not the student government who hasn't raised fees since 1979. -BL<br> - So there is not much error in my assuming that the average student can have as much power as someone who is a part of the ASUCD as long as they are a sufficiently large enough thorn in the side of the UC higher-ups? --["Users/hankim"]<br> - Being a student government representative gives you a social context for representing the opinion of students -- no more, no less. Without the AS, you'd want some kind of other social context, be it a student AAC position or just a club officership. One caveat here is that campus officials tend to give more weight to officials higher up in the student government hierarchy, and city officials give slightly higher weight to ASUCD executives. This distinction is completely lost at the state and national levels of advocacy, in my experience. -BL<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-22 23:57:31'' [[nbsp]] Hahahaha!

As a result of their different experiences, one group may have difficulty seeing why something is problematic for another group, and because they can't see it, they brush it off.

You said, "I understand you may have racist views, but please keep them off of the wiki. This is a space where people should be respectful to one another, and work cooperatively to build consensus."<br> - <br> - Saying that MW has racist view is hardly being respectful or conducive to working cooperatively.

Your response to her doesn't indicate that you didn't understand the phrase, but it does indicate that you were brushing off what she was saying with (as you say) a flippant comment. So, then she says something that amounts to "it's all too easy to brush off a concern if you never had experiences that would allow you to fully understand the concern" and you call her a racist. I think that that was out of line on your part. You admittedly didn't understand what she was saying at first, yet you somehow knew she was making a racist comment? You later accused her of making an ad hominem. How about trying the principle of charity, i.e., read what she said in the most charitable way possible, not the least charitable way possible? --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-04-04 09:14:04'' [[nbsp]] Ok, let me try to explain how I see the issue with the term "Occupy" and perhaps that will help, although I am starting to fear that you are determined to see yourself as the wronged party no matter what I say.<br> - <br> - Using the term "Occupy" for the name of the movement is, for some, similar or the same as using the names "The Final Solution," "Crusade" (yes, I know about the organization on campus -- don't get me started" or "Jihad." I might be a Native American whose people were kicked off of their land and shuttled to a reservation where no food would grow and where there was nothing to hunt. I might have grown up in a culture that was completely demoralized, groping to resuscitate the tattered remains of that culture which the government sought to wipe out through "education" and "reform." I might have watched some of the members of my family deal with this through drugs and alcohol and watched others succeed in avoiding that fate only by leaving their people. All of this as a result of those who proclaimed their right to "occupy" lands that belong to my ancestors. And I might be one of the successful ones who fought my way to college and who has been trying ever since to bring the ongoing plight of my people to the attention of others. So, when someone like that expresses a concern about the name "Occupy" and you reply, "Those people might need to chill and realize that one can't get everything one asks for" I might think that having to pay high tuition isn't the worst thing that can happen to someone. I might wonder when my people will get anything that they asked for, and why our concerns are always, again and again, being brushed over. I might hope that in a university community, people would at least listen to what I had to say and not just tell me to "chill" without considering my concerns -- that they could disagree with me about the name of the movement, but that they should at least acknowledge where I am coming from and not just dismiss me and my concerns. I might point out that that person's privileged position, based on their race and gender, is why they fail to see my concerns worthy of any consideration. And if that person takes offense at me pointing this out, I might be inclined to say, "those people need to chill and realize that having someone pointing out your privilege is not the worst thing that can happen to someone."<br> - <br> - That is my genuine attempt to explain what has happened here. If you still think you are entirely the wronged party... well, I'm not sure what else I can say, other than I think you are sorely mistaken. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-04-04 11:05:09'' [[nbsp]] In fact, I think it does belong on the wiki. I think you've played out a scenario that has occurred within the group itself, with some members dismissing the concerns about the name out of hand and others pointing out that this dismissal stems out of privilege. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-04-04 11:21:19'' [[nbsp]] I can, but honestly, at this point I'm not inclined to. Maybe later. Right now I feel as though I have gone out of my way to explain things patiently and clearly with very little response to the substance of my comments on your part. I'd like to hear something from you other than your feelings about being personally attacked. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-04-05 13:12:40'' [[nbsp]] Well, yes, there is probably no point in continuing that particular conversation now. However, I am quite annoyed that you kept asking questions, which I spent a fair amount of time answering, only to have you ignore them. In the future I would expect you to actually engage in dialogues that you begin. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-04-06 05:16:35'' [[nbsp]] I never said a thing the whole time cause I knew you would speak for me<br> - <br> - Thanks --["Users/StevenDaubert"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-04-06 07:54:12'' [[nbsp]] Your long explanation on my page is all beside the point. As I said to WL, I have no problem with principled and respectful disagreement over whether the term "occupy" is appropriate. What I do object to is what you did initially -- which was to completely dismiss the concerns with the line "Those people might need to chill and realize that one can't get everything one asks for." Now, if you want to say that you had in mind your pragmatic reasons all along, well, that's interesting, but not really relevant to others who cannot read your mind and who can only judge by your actions. It is also exceedingly doubtful to me that anyone who really understood those concerns would say something dismissive like that (not to mention that you admitted that you didn't know of any use of the term "occupy" to imply "oppression," so I am not sure how you can now claim to have reflected on those concerns). Again, one can understand those concerns and still ''disagree'' with them, but one who simply ''dismisses'' those concerns is, I think, in a position where they have not suffered under an occupation. And the gargantuan leap by where you come to call MW a racist -- sorry, still not buying it, for the reasons I have already stated, and whatever you think of her tactics pragmatically has nothing to do with whether her statement was racist or not. It wasn't. --["Users/CovertProfessor"] --P.S. If you genuinely are a pragmatist, then you should not be making flippant, dismissive comments, as they tend to only inflame (as they have done here) rather than persuade.<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-05-24 08:03:27'' [[nbsp]] Hey Brent, maybe you could help me out with the MIND Institute page? I work there, and several years ago the Institute actually officially changed its name to not have the periods between the letters. I went to rename the page, and that's how I found out there was that other page that had been created just last year with the now correct name. More pages linked to the old MIND Institute page so I instead tried to delete the new one and was then going to rename the old one to not have the periods between the letters. Ideas? --["Users/DavidBenjamin"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-05-25 23:26:20'' [[nbsp]] Thanks for doing the arboretum navigation table.

Andrea repeatedly, and at various points, made it clear that she doesn't like this page because it stands in the way of her future. This page makes (made) lame comments about her ASUCD past, her 'non-existing', 'not showing up' ('when she should have') etc..<br> - <br> - I agree with her that this is not funny at all, only to the people who made those comments. Maybe you weren't aware of the situation?<br> - <br> - So, you were putting her in the spotlight again, just at the time that she was returning and thanking everybody for doing the right thing and deleting the silly page and remarks.

I might be a Native American whose people were kicked off of their land and shuttled to a reservation where no food would grow and where there was nothing to hunt. I might have grown up in a culture that was completely demoralized, groping to resuscitate the tattered remains of that culture which the government sought to wipe out through "education" and "reform." I might have watched some of the members of my family deal with this through drugs and alcohol and watched others succeed in avoiding that fate only by leaving their people. All of this as a result of those who proclaimed their right to "occupy" lands that belong to my ancestors. And I might be one of the successful ones who fought my way to college and who has been trying ever since to bring the ongoing plight of my people to the attention of others. So, when someone like that expresses a concern about the name "Occupy" and you reply, "Those people might need to chill and realize that one can't get everything one asks for" I might think that having to pay high tuition isn't the worst thing that can happen to someone. I might wonder when my people will get anything that they asked for, and why our concerns are always, again and again, being brushed over. I might hope that in a university community, people would at least listen to what I had to say and not just tell me to "chill" without considering my concerns -- that they could disagree with me about the name of the movement, but that they should at least acknowledge where I am coming from and not just dismiss me and my concerns. I might point out that that person's privileged position, based on their race and gender, is why they fail to see my concerns worthy of any consideration. And if that person takes offense at me pointing this out, I might be inclined to say, "those people need to chill and realize that having someone pointing out your privilege is not the worst thing that can happen to someone."<br> + <br> + That is my genuine attempt to explain what has happened here.

I think that that was out of line on your part. You admittedly didn't understand what she was saying at first, yet you somehow knew she was making a racist comment?

But it is simply untrue to say that the Band-uh cheats their opponents in the battle. I explained on WilliamLewis's page that the wiki page dedicated to the battle is confusing and has several inaccuracies. In its current state, it's probably not the best page to base statements on the featured page off of. I welcome the opportunity to discuss the facts with you, on account of I am somebody who was actually present during the wee hours of the night for some of the battles in question. While I think it is healthy for people to have a discussion, such a discussion obviously doesn't belong in the form of reverts on the featured page. Therefore, since there is not consensus on this issue, I propose leaving the featured page text neutral for the time being and allow any necessary discussion on an appropriate page. --["Users/RyanCoates"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-04-15 02:04:54'' [[nbsp]] The "rule" that the Aggie Band always wins is not really a rule, people sort of just say that because they have never lost. In the case of an agreed tie, each band plays their fight song in order. Tradition is that the Band-uh is always the last band to march into the PD battle, therefore they are the last to play their fight song in the case of a tie. If they played their fight song first, then they would have played one fewer songs than the other bands and it wouldn't be much of a tie. I can see how to an audience this would appear like the Band-uh was winning a tie, so to speak, but that's not really what's happening. In the absence of a tie agreement, the battle becomes winnable. That the Aggie Band always wins is not really a rule, but more of a creed among Aggie bandsmen. Some other band could plausibly come with more music and stamina and outlast the Band-uh. Some have tried this, but have been unable to exhaust the Band-uh's library. Just because nobody has yet been able to outplay the Ags doesn't that they couldn't or won't in the future. --["Users/RyanCoates"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-04-30 18:46:36'' [[nbsp]] I prototyped a little threaded shadow site called Mondo (a type of border grass... get it?

Every election I hear a few of the same issues repeated and it seems like the people who got elected never kept their end of the bargain. To me, it looks like they have no more power over these issues than the average student and the only way to get these issues looked at would be to apply as a student adviser to the Chancellor or something and these promises are used to feed on ignorant voters (loaded question is loaded). --["Users/hankim"]<br> + Well, yes and no. I can give you some sort of answer about student representation on ["CCFIT"] for and other ["Administrative Advisory Committees"], and that would be factual but not really relevetory. So far as I can tell, your philosophy of student government is that it should be restrained to things in which the association has a direct fiscal influence (or maybe some external advocacy too, not sure there). Those are the places where the association has hard power. But there are also areas in which they have soft (diplomatic) power, and the provision of student services by the campus administration is one of those places.<br> + Students are ultimately the consumers of the University, so there are a variety of ways student leaders can wield soft power. They can attempt to embarass the administration, either by extensive protests or scathing editorials (see ["UCSA"]). They can try to tattle to the Regents. They can shmooze their way to getting inside attention (see ["Brian McInnis"]). Or, more than likely, they will just sufficiently annoy the administration that they'll do something about it (see ["Rob Roy"], or even ["Keith Shively"]). The point is, soft power is real, and providing ["Stapler Liberation Front" staplers in computer labs] is not something that would have happened without student leadership.<br> + That said, soft power is unreliable, even from the best wielders of it. So I think you should look carefully at the person making a lot of promises that they need others to deliver on. If it's someone without the social graces to shmooze, the persistence to annoy, and the eloquence to indict, then their promises will likely remain pie-in-the-sky. Contrarily, if the candidate promises only things that they know they can deliver, it's really kind of boring. It shows a lack of vision for what student life should be. It's possible, even in this poor economic climate, to get computer lab printing back up to 200 pages/quarter -- but it would take the kind of tenacity I rarely see in a student government officer. --["Users/BrentLaabs"]<br> + It would be really easy to get computer lab printing up to 200 pages/quarter. ASUCD could budget a chunk of money to hand to CLM. --wl<br> + And yet I'd just assume that the people increasing fees at double the rate of inflation pay for it, not the student government who hasn't raised fees since 1979. -BL<br> + So there is not much error in my assuming that the average student can have as much power as someone who is a part of the ASUCD as long as they are a sufficiently large enough thorn in the side of the UC higher-ups? --["Users/hankim"]<br> + Being a student government representative gives you a social context for representing the opinion of students -- no more, no less. Without the AS, you'd want some kind of other social context, be it a student AAC position or just a club officership. One caveat here is that campus officials tend to give more weight to officials higher up in the student government hierarchy, and city officials give slightly higher weight to ASUCD executives. This distinction is completely lost at the state and national levels of advocacy, in my experience. -BL<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-02-22 23:57:31'' [[nbsp]] Hahahaha!

But it is simply untrue to say that the Band-uh cheats their opponents in the battle. I explained on WilliamLewis's page that the wiki page dedicated to the battle is confusing and has several inaccuracies. In its current state, it's probably not the best page to base statements on the featured page off of. I welcome the opportunity to discuss the facts with you, on account of I am somebody who was actually present during the wee hours of the night for some of the battles in question. While I think it is healthy for people to have a discussion, such a discussion obviously doesn't belong in the form of reverts on the featured page. Therefore, since there is not consensus on this issue, I propose leaving the featured page text neutral for the time being and allow any necessary discussion on an appropriate page. --["Users/RyanCoates"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-04-15 02:04:54'' [[nbsp]] The "rule" that the Aggie Band always wins is not really a rule, people sort of just say that because they have never lost. In the case of an agreed tie, each band plays their fight song in order. Tradition is that the Band-uh is always the last band to march into the PD battle, therefore they are the last to play their fight song in the case of a tie. If they played their fight song first, then they would have played one fewer songs than the other bands and it wouldn't be much of a tie. I can see how to an audience this would appear like the Band-uh was winning a tie, so to speak, but that's not really what's happening. In the absence of a tie agreement, the battle becomes winnable. That the Aggie Band always wins is not really a rule, but more of a creed among Aggie bandsmen. Some other band could plausibly come with more music and stamina and outlast the Band-uh. Some have tried this, but have been unable to exhaust the Band-uh's library. Just because nobody has yet been able to outplay the Ags doesn't that they couldn't or won't in the future. --["Users/RyanCoates"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-04-30 18:46:36'' [[nbsp]] I prototyped a little threaded shadow site called Mondo (a type of border grass... get it?

Every election I hear a few of the same issues repeated and it seems like the people who got elected never kept their end of the bargain. To me, it looks like they have no more power over these issues than the average student and the only way to get these issues looked at would be to apply as a student adviser to the Chancellor or something and these promises are used to feed on ignorant voters (loaded question is loaded). --["Users/hankim"]<br> - Well, yes and no. I can give you some sort of answer about student representation on ["CCFIT"] for and other ["Administrative Advisory Committees"], and that would be factual but not really relevetory. So far as I can tell, your philosophy of student government is that it should be restrained to things in which the association has a direct fiscal influence (or maybe some external advocacy too, not sure there). Those are the places where the association has hard power. But there are also areas in which they have soft (diplomatic) power, and the provision of student services by the campus administration is one of those places.<br> - Students are ultimately the consumers of the University, so there are a variety of ways student leaders can wield soft power. They can attempt to embarass the administration, either by extensive protests or scathing editorials (see ["UCSA"]). They can try to tattle to the Regents. They can shmooze their way to getting inside attention (see ["Brian McInnis"]). Or, more than likely, they will just sufficiently annoy the administration that they'll do something about it (see ["Rob Roy"], or even ["Keith Shively"]). The point is, soft power is real, and providing ["Stapler Liberation Front" staplers in computer labs] is not something that would have happened without student leadership.<br> - That said, soft power is unreliable, even from the best wielders of it. So I think you should look carefully at the person making a lot of promises that they need others to deliver on. If it's someone without the social graces to shmooze, the persistence to annoy, and the eloquence to indict, then their promises will likely remain pie-in-the-sky. Contrarily, if the candidate promises only things that they know they can deliver, it's really kind of boring. It shows a lack of vision for what student life should be. It's possible, even in this poor economic climate, to get computer lab printing back up to 200 pages/quarter -- but it would take the kind of tenacity I rarely see in a student government officer. --["Users/BrentLaabs"]<br> - It would be really easy to get computer lab printing up to 200 pages/quarter. ASUCD could budget a chunk of money to hand to CLM. --wl<br> - And yet I'd just assume that the people increasing fees at double the rate of inflation pay for it, not the student government who hasn't raised fees since 1979. -BL<br> - So there is not much error in my assuming that the average student can have as much power as someone who is a part of the ASUCD as long as they are a sufficiently large enough thorn in the side of the UC higher-ups? --["Users/hankim"]<br> - Being a student government representative gives you a social context for representing the opinion of students -- no more, no less. Without the AS, you'd want some kind of other social context, be it a student AAC position or just a club officership. One caveat here is that campus officials tend to give more weight to officials higher up in the student government hierarchy, and city officials give slightly higher weight to ASUCD executives. This distinction is completely lost at the state and national levels of advocacy, in my experience. -BL<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-02-22 23:57:31'' [[nbsp]] Hahahaha!
