My sculpture, Untitled 2008 Elise graduated from UC Davis with a B.A. in both Art Studio and Dramatic Art (Theatre). She worked at The California Aggie for three and a half years, first as a staff photographer (winning the CCMA Best Features Photo in 2005) and later as a copyreader and Features Editor. For two years, she served on the editorial board for Produce (Book). Elise wrote the play Ghost, Bathtub, Windmill, which was performed in the Wyatt Pavilion in 2008. She acted in Nights at the Circus, also at Wyatt, and would've appeared in the play Antics had she not fallen ill. She has done voices for Davis Radio Theater on KDVS and was an announcer for the Picnic Day Parade in 2009. She helped paint a small portion of the Uncle Vito's Slice of N.Y. outdoor mural. She is responsible for The Bathtub Experiment. She worked at the SPCA Thrift Store from July 2007 through August 2008. She hosted "The Pharmakon" under the DJ name "The Drag Queen of Hearts" on KDVS in Spring 2009. Retaining her DJ name, she co-hosted "Skinny Dipping" on KDVS in Summer 2009 and hosted live musical acts at residential music venues. She worked as a graphic artist for The Davis Enterprise from April 2011 through January 2012. Though she no longer lives in the area, a piece of her heart remains in Davis.

2007-02-15 14:09:22 I think the co-op idea is the best route, as the decision to close has been made. Right now we are working on getting the cash to get it off the ground —AndrewPeake
2008-04-01 21:37:37 Yes! I was so in love with that Sadler lecture today as well. Thanks for reminding me of the rad quotes from earlier. By ttthhhhheee way, are you in the metals class or no? (Mr. Professor Billsss called your name with no luck of an answer) It's going to be a cool class I'm fairly sure... —JasonDunne
2008-04-16 15:16:32 Hey, I dunno if you've taken tom before, but he's no fan of structure, so we're working on whatever we wish. I'm all over a messy-wire-copper-bike cable-coil semispherical ball right now. It's so fun and tedious. My friend Julia is doing an indddepenendndnent study with him; she comes in after her class ends at 11 and it seems to work out just fine. Hey it might be too late - but if you want my notes for Sadler's class (I type them on the computtter) email me at jbdunne ATTTTTTT UCDAVIS DDDOOOT EDU. I'm stoked 25 times/minute at each lecture. —JasonDunne
2008-05-12 01:56:12 How about if you put those pictures of the Coffee House and Freeborn Hall facilities on their respective pages or on one and link it from the other? The name of that page is pretty long so editors of the wiki are unlikely to remember it or link it by accident. —NickSchmalenberger
2008-11-06 20:52:16 Can you post the letter from Student Housing regarding the Bike Church? —JonathanLawton
2009-01-12 17:06:53 So I did a bit of research in Shields about the history of the building that now houses the Bike Barn. I found a map from October 1911 that showed that the building that is now the Bike Barn did not exist. However, the building that is now the Silo is on the map and it is labeled "Cow barn." The map has the call number G4364 D3:2U6 1911. I also found a map from 1923 that does have the building that now houses the Bike Barn. It is labeled "Stock Judging Pavillion." The call number for that map is G4364 D3:2U6 1923 M3. It sounds like whoever told you that the Bike Barn used to be a dairy confused the main Silo building, which could have been built in 1910 (since it shows up on a 1911 map) with the Stock Judging Pavillion, which could have been built in 1916 (since it shows up between 1911 and 1923 on the maps). —WilliamLewis
2009-02-26 04:45:18 Tribute to Midjo is quite cool, thanks for posting the picture. —NickSchmalenberger

2009-07-02 08:48:43 Now wait a second... you can not create an entry about a house whose color is in dispute and not put up a photo of it. ;-) —JabberWokky
2009-10-14 15:08:37 Hey, Elise. I added the dates/times for the House of Dog shows that I got from the websites you posted, but maybe you can check it out to make sure I posted the right dates. They sound great. —robinlaughlin
2009-10-22 13:22:26 RE: An Evening with Olaf: I don't have that information. I suggest calling the DPNS and hopefully you can find someone that knows. There is a poster on the Davis Food Co-op Bulletin Board. If you come to the DavisWiki BBQ this weekend, I'll give you one. p.s. your sculpture, and it's shadows, rocks... —SteveDavison
2010-05-21 18:11:03 If you want to use # in a page title, you can use either small number sign (﹟ unicode 0xFE5F) or fullwidth number sign (＃ unicode 0xFF03). You could also use a music sharp symbol (♯ unicode 0x266F) or a viewdata square (⌗ unicode 0x2317), but those technically mean other things. —WilliamLewis
2011-02-14 17:10:16 In my opinion, your name is the second coolest in all of Davis, after Dagon Jones of course. —ScottMeehleib
2011-02-15 13:38:00 I like your name because of its phonetic structure. Your first name sounds gentle, but it's also very elusive. Like the many florid, feminine names such as Elizabeth or Alicia, one expects yours will flow on to further syllables. But no! Your name refuses to conform to such boring standards, and it instead abruptly terminates, leaving the listener disoriented and in a mild state of shock. And then, when you least expect it, you are struck by the mightiness of KANE: beginning with the hard slap of the consonant, thus birthing the powerful drag of the long A-sound, in turn fading away with the resonant hum of the N.
In conclusion, I'm pretty sure that the secrets of the universe are locked up inside your name. Or maybe I'm full of it, as people often tell me, and it just has a really nice ring to it. —ScottMeehleib
2011-05-11 07:21:37 Yay photos! Thanks for adding all those. —TomGarberson
2011-07-13 09:20:00 More great photos and gnoming! Thanks! —TomGarberson
2011-07-18 21:30:37 Thanks for the edits to Lily Starling Massage Therapy! Looks great :) —LilyS

2012-10-31 12:09:59 not to undo your edit, but if we train enough folks that they can share opinions via edits and not the comment bar... —StevenDaubert
2012-10-31 20:32:28 This isn't Wikipedia and that is a sketchy comparison :) . My comments served as a reminder for me to go ask topps. The comment macro was created when people had issues figuring out they could edit every page of a wiki. If you really feel the need to use / encourage the usage of the macro then go for it. As far as the MMA musings goes it just further solidifies my thoughts that topp fell off the radar (who buys baseball cards?) and is in the process of reinventing themselves, Albeit it's thru Popular culture (Pepper spray Pike) or fringe sports (MMA)
merely adding a comment macro, but having nothing to say just seems like the wrong reason to include it (this is something that I used to do, add the macro but not use it). Also formatting (a comment section as you refer to it) can be done without the usage of the comment section, but if everyone is trained to just use the comment bar and not make edits and monkey with formatting when it comes time for them to actually do just that they will be woefully unprepared and quicker to frustrate / not engage.
Text is such a constricting medium, I feel like both "sides" would be better articulated with spoken word.
2012-11-03 09:14:41 Re: "You said something about what you wrote having to do with reminding yourself to ask Topps something...which is, pardon my saying it, bizarre. Why would you talk to yourself on a web entry in the middle of the internet (that entry intended for fact organization), rather than write yourself a Post-It and put it on your fridge? ". I've noticed and said the exact same thing before.
Skimming your and Dauberts page, I think you're somewhat missing each other points. To me, he says "there's no need to put comment bars out there, some people dislike them and prefer adding stuff to the entry." Ie, a comment bar without comments is aesthetically displeasing. Your response includes 'comment bars are easier for others and seem to make more sense [paraphrasing]' but also: "what you added to the entry is non relevant and useless info. It would fit better as a comment than something 'about' the entry up in the main text', which as I said above, I generally agree with. I don't like stream of consciousness inserted into page entries under the guise of 'less comments, more integration.' —EdWins
2012-11-16 01:30:18 I leave the discordianism to Brent. Refrain from removing my comments from the wiki, regardless of content. —StevenDaubert
so my thoughts are your business and you can dictate where I put them? Sounds reasonable. Also you said "factual entry" as if this is some sort of fact on top opinion on bottom type of wikipedia. DavisWiki != Wikipedia (!= reads as "is not equal") I removed the comment bar because it added nothing to the wiki, and perpetuated a myth about the wiki. You weren't around for the CO chicken wings debacle were you? Notice how she wanted opinions in the comment section and not the body and that was one of the sticking points? I think you glossed over (or just didn't care enough to actual read) cut that comment bar out specifically "Opinions are fine in the main text, too. They're encouraged! (See #8 of Wiki Welcome page.)
please understand that you had a way of transferring my comment to the box where you saw it most fit to belong while still having it auto-attributed to me, the author. It's called the "edit" button and you can find it at the bottom left of the page. Attributing something looks like this ["Daubert"] the wiki code is [" and "] or if you want to make the ghost of JasonAller happy you can users/RealName in bracket quotes.
2012-11-24 08:55:05 Or, another way to put it is that you're trying to turn a wiki into an encyclopedia. Wikipedia uses a wiki to make an encyclopedia. Encyclopedias are cited, neutral, and are written in a very passive manner. While Wikipedia uses wiki software to write their encyclopedia (and their sister project Wikia to create specialized encyclopedias), that's the "-pedia" side of their project, not the "wiki-" part. Wikis predate Wikipedia by a fair amount, and are normally snapshots of evolving thoughts, knowledge, ideas and expressions of a community. Thus such concepts as the WikiNow (also here), and WikiNature. Those links go to wikis that predate Wikipedia by over seven years.
Now, all that said and beyond, there does need to be flexibility to rework pages, lest they be buried in unalterable quotes. Right now, the comment bar is the junk drawer: a place to toss things that we're too fond of or (more often) too scared to throw away, and that might be useful someday, but we're not willing to put the effort to find a place for, even if that means reworking them a bit to fit. If it really isn't fitting (off topic, spam, etc), delete it. However, since this is a comment from a member of the Davis community about the topic, there is usually something to use: in this case, two facts and a question. I'm integrating it, but that's my simple proposal for what works better. Daubert and you can come back along and alter it again... hopefully not back to the *starting* point, because then we're not narrowing in on a version we can all live with. The ending version may not be ideal for all of us, but it respects what each wants. For instance, I'd rather it be an unattributed quote just posing the interesting question. But I know Daubert signs stuff like this, so I added attribution, while moving it into the body of the text. I stated the facts as contextualized and useful information, because that was an objection you had. Seeking common ground on the wiki works. —JabberWokky
Eloquent, thanks Daubert Also topps never got back to me re history of GPK revival.
