Hey Jessica, when I do a search for "students take action" i see that page as the top result, under "Title Matches." It doesn't really match highly in the "Full text" area because the page itself has the words "students" "take", etc, but they all have their first letter bolded, which tricks out the wiki. I hope I answered your question! —PhilipNeustrom

2007-04-04 17:08:15   Okay, things should be good now with searching! The "social-ism" and "social-ist" thing you mentioned to me won't be fixed for a while, but all of the pages on the wiki should be find-able through searching, now! —PhilipNeustrom

2007-04-06 19:28:11   Take a look at my comment on UCD May 1, 2007: Day of Action/Debates. Once you see it, feel free to delete the whole thing. —DavidGrundler

Moved from elsewhere.

2007-04-07 09:06:22   please direct me to a wiki link that pertains to the use of Latin@ or Latinx on the wiki. xie xie ni. —JessicaRockwell

2007-04-07 08:55:46 hello David, is there a wiki link explaining the rules regarding why Latin@ and/or Latinx can not be used? xie xie ni. —JessicaRockwell

2007-04-07 21:54:06   question regarding wiki: are people suppose to ask a question and sign their question with their sig in the middle of the main page? it seems as though it should be added towards the end, no? —JessicaRockwell

Just to note, you seem to have this attitude, "if you are not with us, you are against us", and I am pretty sure I have heard that before. ~Users/DavePoole

2007-04-08 10:47:29   Howdy, Jessica. I was curious if you invented the construct latin@. I keep a notebook devoted to graphemes, glyphs and notations, and I've never seen it (not surprising, my interests mostly lie in historical writing forms), nor can I find many references to it, although that may well be because it seems to not work with Google or most other search engines. Do you have a citation for usage? Incidently, the form latinx (or at least the x part) is a classic synthetic construct used during the middle ages as a generic or unknown sex in written documents. —JabberWokky

Please don't edit things in brackets. Those are macros and they break when you try to change the "language" contained in them. —WilliamLewis

This does raise an interesting question about internationalizing in regards to macros.. I guess people don't need to know the word to understand the function, just a proper noun. Perhaps you want to go to wikispotwikispot in order to make a Davis Wiki en esp. ~Dave

2007-04-15 20:20:47   Right Now, My Camera is in Dallas Cole's car, but as soon as I get it back, I'll post pics that night. —MaxMikalonis

2007-04-21 23:45:02   does anyone know about rules during the 60's (?) discussing how schools had to be built in a way so as to disperse the student populations to prevent agitation on campuses? —JessicaRockwell

2007-05-02 21:49:24   The demagogy is disrespectful and not appreciated... —DavidGrundler

2007-05-02 22:14:33   I deleted your comment the first time because you didn't bother to sign it. —DavidGrundler

2007-05-03 00:06:11   Sadly, there is no information here about the person, only a log of some debates.. —DavidPoole

2007-05-03 10:36:12   Hey, Jessica, I'm going to try and resolve the edit conflict by taking it back a couple versions and then picking through your and Steve's edits to add them back in. If I mess up, it's completely my fault and also completely not intentional. Feel free to correct or fix any changes I make on your behalf as I try to piece everybody's edits back together. :) —JabberWokky

2007-05-03 11:30:16   Hey Jessica, sorry you hit that weird bug with your images. I can reproduce the problem on my own computer so I'm going to hunt it down now. :) —PhilipNeustrom

2007-05-07 07:02:30   It might be a good idea to remember that using slang such as "texting speak" excludes and creates a hostile environment to those who don't understand it. Many people above 30 don't know or care to learn to decypher such messages, and you're (unintentionally, I presume), being less inclusive when you add comments in that form. Keep in mind that Davis includes people of all ages and backgrounds, and you shouldn't have to be "up on the street slang" of the current youth to be able to read a good point about REAL ID. I'm not telling you not to (your comments are whatever you want to add), I'm just pointing a perspective that you might not have considered, as you don't seem exclusionary, ageist or elitist by nature. —JabberWokky

2007-05-08 22:01:08   A potential way to figure out how many women have run for Pres/VP of ASUCD could be to ask the aggie newspaper if they have an archive that's easily searchable dating back longer than the past few years. I'm assuming that if not an electronic format, that there would at least be paper copies at the library. Of course, that wouldn't tell how many women had expressed interest in running who were denied by their Slate's leadership, but it'd be a start at least. —JoseBleckman

2007-05-09 01:18:41   Why do you insist on adding the comment macro [WWW]that way and such? —EdWins

2007-05-11 18:48:19   You were interested in wikis that use other languages... so check out accountablesarkoaccountablesarko. It looks like the wiki name got cut off by a character limit, but it is non english content and political in nature. —JasonAller

2007-05-11 22:44:43   Now that the accent bug has been fixed can you help to rename pages like Accion Zapatista to Acción Zapatista? Leave the non accented page as a redirect to aide in searching. —JasonAller

2007-05-14 20:35:21   Thanks for the comment and starting my page. (: —HeatherFlood

2007-05-23 16:27:10   Hey Jessica—good meeting you today at the protest and good job! —DavidGreenwald

2007-06-04 02:39:20   Nice to virtually meet you. Thanks for the grammar edits on World of Davis Game and thanks for the time I spent wandering this page. Dymaxion Maps are sweet - I have one folded into a globe at work and it's neat to see more about it. Great discussion on loaded terms with the whole Latin@/x bit. —AlexMandel

2007-06-06 19:24:04   [WWW]Focus is the key to making forward progress. It helps keep you on topic and moving in the right direction. —JasonAller

2007-06-06 19:30:17   Jessica, will you go out with me? -brianbarbera

2007-06-08 10:29:30   If you call me occidental, I'm liable to kick your butt. :-P —WilliamLewis

What is wrong with Europe being the center of the universe, so many maps make it so? Also to note, Asia is still also to the east of the United States, just as it is also West of Europe, additionally it lies distantly to the South or North of both places. Lastly, are Russians Asian? if not, why? I mean, they are from Asia? I don't mean to simply argue, and I don't mind people changing the term used, I guess I worry about people taking the issue more serious than need be, I mean, it is not the word mattered but what is meant by it. But then what can I say, I am hardly ever hurt by words and cannot really think of anyone who has been, so I lack the entire personal experience in the area. As a last note, why refer to it as the n-word, given the nature of the discussion I don't see how anyone can be harmed by saying nigger, not to offend any black peoples out there. ~Users/Davepoole

2007-06-20 13:36:41   Long live the Blue page! —CovertProfessor

2007-06-23 06:57:28   cbt —BradBenedict

2007-06-27 08:51:45   It technically opens at five thirty, I have gotten donuts at five twenty before, generally I don't mind waiting a few bits for getting delicious donuts.. which I now miss dearly. —DavidPoole

2007-07-03 14:41:28   Thanks! But I only added a few tidbits about Sonoma County, the rest was already there... —GarrettGallegos

2007-07-08 19:10:09   good idea! i programmed this script in a directory called "revert_count." you think i would have thought of that already :-). it'll take a couple of hours to collect that data, but i'll post it as well as the spreadsheet! —CraigBrozinsky

2007-07-10 11:35:31   Jessica, thanks for all your efforts and energy directed toward social justice issues. I'm particularly impressed at the relatively substantial discussion that your "Women on Davis Wiki" page triggered - it made for a notable positive contribution to the Davis Wiki. —GrahamFreeman

2007-07-11 14:29:32   Jessica, what do you think of moving the ["Women on the Davis Wiki/Talk"] page to a new Gendered Pronouns on the Davis Wiki page (or, something like that — my name isn't too catchy). Right now, the discussion on the talk page seems like a separate issue rather than a "Talk" page. I'd do it myself, but I'm not really sure how. —CovertProfessor

2007-08-12 13:41:13   Wow, that's pretty bad. I think Ingrid's writeup is 100x better than Michael's—his seems targeted at people who have already seen the movie seeing as he glosses over a few key assertions made by the DVD/book. Remember our China/Cuba conv.? Check [WWW]this out. —ArlenAbraham

2007-08-17 21:26:50   FYI the KDVS signal can get as far as 50 miles away from the MU - through Sacramento, up into Grass Valley and parts of the Sierras, and as far as Fairfield. —ElisaHough

2007-08-28 12:01:53   Where should the page about Mark Chang be linked from? —JasonAller

2007-09-05 22:33:06   No sweat — glad to help. —CovertProfessor

2007-09-06 15:17:09   what's going on at the ex-turtle? also, did you listen to empire nation today? totally sucked again. two anti-abortionists gabbing on and on and on. —PxlAted

2007-09-07 02:13:29   hi jessica, Nice to see you are continuing to work for what you believe. I miss having our conversations and I hope to see you in Davis some time. —SolomonBothwell

2007-09-10 23:14:20   Hi Jessica, That US vs. North Korea World Cup game is happening at 2am rather than 2pm (unless you're hoping to avoid hearing the result for 12 hours). —JimEvans

2007-09-11 07:51:41   Hi Jessica, that's because we can't remember who we've told and who we've not told. We thought that Jeff the station manager knew, but he didn't find out until a month later. That show apparently replayed over and over again and he didn't catch it! I haven't said anything online yet, because I haven't uploaded the show yet - it needs some heavy editing (interview/debate with Ken Miller and PZ Myers cam through fuzzy), but when I upload it I'll be sure to send announcements everywhere, including on the wiki. Hey how come you didn't say you had a radio show - I had to find out through the wiki! :) —KarlMogel

2007-09-11 22:12:12   Post-humanism, eh? Only a [wikipedia]Cylon would say that. —KarlMogel

2007-09-11 23:55:33   Thanks! I was happy to see that progressive activism was not dying at UCD and very happy to defend. Keep up the great work. —JamesSchwab

2007-09-12 08:21:00   Yes, and I'm controlling your mind with GE canola oil. Muh huh hah hahhhhh! —KarlMogel

2007-09-13 16:05:56   Thanks! I will add more as my memory serves me. —JamesSchwab

2007-09-13 22:19:16   Thanks for reorganizing those pages, Jessica! —CovertProfessor

2007-09-20 21:24:55   RE: events_board neoisms domes talk: Don't you mean 8:40AM instead of 8:40PM?

2007-09-21 10:57:59   hey we're coming to Davis today - call us and lets see if we can meet and say hi! We'll try to call you, too. —KarlMogel

2007-09-21 15:11:45   We tried calling you today - just give us a call when you have time! —KarlMogel

2007-09-21 18:08:11   Thanks for Posting the Rollerderby Bout! Come say hi to me if you get a chance. —JohnnyRainbow

2007-09-23 10:41:32   Jessica, I think someone is pulling your leg with regard to the Homeless et al group. —Graham.Freeman

2007-09-23 14:24:59   Weird... That wasn't me. It looks like they just Google and put whatever up on their site. Sigh.JasonAller

2007-09-27 18:16:42   Is there a lot of value in redirects where the title of the redirect is a subset of the page that it is pointing to? Maybe I'm missing the value of pages like Olson that points to Olson Hall. —JasonAller

2007-09-27 23:02:16   Hey Jessica, great [WWW]question about the term "queer" and the intersection of class and race. It pretty much comes down to some people's unchecked white, upper-middle-class privilege leaving everyone else out of the loop. [WWW]This post does a pretty good job of unpacking some of the ugly, ugly entitlement BS that goes on. If I find more definitive references, I'll send them your way.

2007-09-27 23:08:52   Hiya, Jessica! Thanks for adding the Astro club Events to the wiki. I noticed that you got confused with some of the events put on by The Davis Astronomy Club instead of our club, so I tried to fix up the pages to help with that. Will I see you at Thursday's meeting? —RachelPeters

2007-09-28 10:29:27   thanks for having the show about critical mass today. i had lots of fun. —PxlAted

2007-09-28 23:51:22   Do you know any numbers b/w one and point nine bar? —jefftolentino

2007-09-29 00:02:42   lets hear your proof. —jefftolentino

2007-09-29 00:29:13   Very nice. I remember seeing that some years ago, but I forgot how the proof went. Appreciating the revisit, thanks. —jefftolentino

2007-09-29 01:01:02   Hey Jessica, this is Kelly from KDVS. I was reading through your comments and there is a surprising amount of sociolinguistic debate going on! (As a Linguistics major this make me excited) You might want to read up on the fields of sociolinguistics and applied linguistics for more on such "issues" (I put quotes not for sarcasm but rather I wasn't sure what to call them) as gender neutral pronouns, what ethnic terms are/aren't offensive to who, etc. You also might want to contact a professor on campus by the name of Vai Ramanathan, she is VERY knowledgeable about all sorts of these kind of issues and would possibly make an excellent guest on your show. She's also SUPER nice, haha. —KellyCorcoran

2007-09-30 15:47:54   Most proofs of .999.. = 1 are circular, because the idea that ".999 = 1" is a part of the way that the real numbers themselves are defined. There are multiple ways to represent a given real number, and so "a number" in the reals is really an [wikipedia]Equivalence class of all numbers that act the same way. —PhilipNeustrom

2007-09-30 21:52:18   Hey, Jessica. It was fun meeting you last night and chatting with you about those things that we talked about at that place where we discussed them, although I won't mention exactly where or when or what because this is a public forum. :-) —IDoNotExist

2007-10-02 14:21:07   Jessica, did you obtain permission to release the content of UCD Campus Security Report under Creative Commons licensing? (If it was already CC-By, you'll also have to add an attribution of specific source). —JabberWokky

2007-10-02 14:57:37   No, alas, it has to be completely rewritten or permission given to relicense it. You can cite figures and such, but the actual text has to be wholly recrafted, or it cannot be released under Creative Commons. The original author has copyright, and can of course release their version under Creative Commons. Since you are not the original author (and have not received permission to do so from the original author), you cannot release the copyrighted work under a more permissive license. Creative Commons allows people to make derivative works... i.e, make changes and rewrites and excerpts and include verbage in their own works. In other words, the stuff the wiki does. —JabberWokky

2007-10-04 15:25:31   Your "something about bikes" event posting wins the prize for being vague. In such cases, can you provide info on what/where you heard about it, or possibly a web link? Thanks. —SteveDavison

2007-10-05 01:07:54   Did you really expect a different response from me? —MaxMikalonis

2007-10-06 10:58:33   You're right! You didn't see me there! Perhaps you don't exist either. My schedule is kinda wacky, being a nonexistent person, so sometimes you will not see me there, and sometimes you REALLY won't see me there. But you really should give me a more real-time method to contact you, as the Wiki is not a good way to let me know where you will be tomorrow, since I may not look at it until many days later.

-See you (or not) soon... —IDoNotExist

2007-10-09 09:57:04   hi jessica. I had fun hanging out with you the other night. see ya soon. —PxlAted

2007-10-13 15:06:24   You're welcome! I'd meant to add something before now, but I hadn't had time. :) —NumiaCairaguas

2007-10-14 21:00:47   I haven't come across Taylorism in any of my courses but that's not to say it's not covered in the ones that I haven't had the pleasure of taking. —KirstenOnell

2007-10-26 07:40:50   Not sure what you mean, you mean the podcast? Very soon, in fact. Sometime in November. As of December I might even be on a radio station. "Stay Tuned..." —KarlMogel

2007-10-26 16:58:24   thanks for the comment —kelvinkay

2007-10-30 22:11:23   Agreeing. I think it'd be better condensed onto one page: that way you can read about both confidential and anonymous testing on the same page, and maybe make a decision. It's more useful/practical for visitors. What do you think? —EdWins

2007-10-31 14:12:34   Thanks for posting all the great events! Great job! Ever read "The Guerilla Diary of Nestor Paz"? He was the son of a Bolivia Army general who joined the guerillas. Ended up starving to death. Quite a moving account, actually. I worked in Colombia. So many needs... —RichLindvall

2007-11-15 14:19:50   Hi Jessica, you should post Sacramento events on [sacramento]SacWiki.orgCharlesMcLaughlin

2007-11-18 19:00:25   What up dog! My Sociology blog is finally up. Go to [WWW] I just put up a little personal post about me, a post about scandalous Halloween costumes on women, and a post about anti-semitism. Karl even titled it Ravings of a Mozart-lovin' Sociology-studyin' White-lookin' Mexican Iconoclast. He did that behind my back, but I love it! :) I'm planning on putting up a new post bi-monthly, weekly at most. Ofcourse, when something good comes up, I'll make a small comment about it and link to it. I actually found a video on youtube where these guys in Baraboo, WI (30 minutes away from Madison) put two Tesla Coils on their front lawn and had it play Super Mario Bros. Hahaha. That was good. So that will go up on my blog - aaahh, the fusion of music and science. —ArielaHaro

2007-11-25 15:45:38   I think [WWW]Ron Paul has some good ideas, but I also acknowledge that he has an uphill battle against Guiliani for the nomination. There has been support for him too here in NYC. I noticed that there were some supporters campaigning for him right after the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade ended Thursday morning. He definitely has a movement going. —PaulAmnuaypayoat

2007-11-25 17:52:02   Oddly enough I was in DC this weekend, and there were two separate conversations at tables next to us yesterday about Ron Paul. Today, driving back, I found a Ron Paul flier in a gas station in Maryland. Anecdotal, of course, but the popularity here seems to be fairly high. —JabberWokky

2007-11-26 23:08:35   yeah I want to know because I want to complain to/ about them. I had a car full of kids and was picking up more at the high school . I had to explain to my 4 year old what the horrible graphic HUGE pictures they had were. So inappropriate. Hopefully I can find out. I will let you know if I do. —HeatherFlood

2007-12-05 07:42:50   I only took 3 pictures and there are 23 left on the it might be awhile before you get those —CarlaIsabel

2007-12-10 00:50:50   To answer the question you left me on AIM: No, the only thing that was me was the thing I pointed out earlier. I haven't done anything in that thread since. —WilliamLewis

2008-03-03 01:49:09   Hi Jessica, Here are some links about [wikipedia]Hypatia of Alexandria

and here are some links about [wikipedia]Kenji Nagai

I had a great time watching the movie with you, I hope we can talk more about this some time. —NickSchmalenberger

2008-03-14 09:39:38   Hey, great interview with Philip! I was trying to call in during the music to make sure that you were taking calls, but I guess I missed that slot due to the delay in the internet stream (also, the second phone number on the show listing is a bad number, so I had to run back upstairs and get the first number). I really enjoyed the show, and I'm glad you could run late to get some extra questions in. Thanks for asking some really interesting questions about how the Wiki grew. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

2008-03-14 09:59:54   Yeah, the 530-572-2777 number gave me an "bad number" message, which I used because I didn't have to spell out KDVS on the keypad. I just double checked in my call log on my cell, and I dialed it correctly. I had punched it into my phone, waiting for a music break. When it didn't work, I then ran up, looked up the other number and called, which is why I was a bit confused if I was on the air when I first spoke. —JabberWokky

2008-06-18 20:29:10   I ran across a fun math problem the other day that you might enjoy...

Say you have to find the area between two concentric circles, in other words, the area of the larger circle minus the area of the smaller circle. You are only allowed to take a single measurement. What would you measure and how would calculate the area? —jefftolentino

2009-11-21 21:01:01   It's good to see you active on the wiki again! —CovertProfessor

2009-11-22 09:07:06   Ah, you've joined our crew of Davis-wikiites-no-longer-in-Davis! Excellent. :-) I'm glad you've added in some of the history. People need to know that this isn't something that has just happened with this bad California budget year. As you point out, less funding for CA higher ed has been going on for decades. —CovertProfessor

2010-03-06 12:01:32   Can police safely clear an area so you can shoot guns in downtown Davis without hitting anyone? Just because they can do something doesn't mean that they should, that it'd be doing their jobs, or that it'd be the best way to ensure people's safety.

Are the police supposed to enable me to do anything I want just because I claim to be doing it in the name of a cause? Don't be ridiculous. —TomGarberson

2010-03-06 12:36:36   The police could make it safe for protesters to go on the freeway, but keep in mind that these are the protesters who are fighting to get past said police. People cannot fight the police and also expect them to still protect them. —JoePomidor

2010-03-06 15:28:53   I agree, it's about adding things and being informative. However, empty headers stuff like that result in a page that is harder to read, and thus less informative. For that reason, if it looks like a section is not being populated with information, it should probably be removed. How long should we wait for people to fill in that section before taking it out? —JoePomidor

2010-03-06 21:04:46   It looks like a few people above already responded to the silly question you left on my page. —EdWins

2010-03-07 14:01:11   Jessica, the point of the protest page is to document the protest, not to make a case for the protesters. If you want to argue that the police weren't justified in what they did or that they should have done otherwise, there's a controversy subpage for that. Several people don't approve of having all of the miscellaneous motivations on the page because it takes away from the documentation of it, but they've chosen to leave it alone to respect the wishes of those who think the list should remain. So long as that list is up, though, please respect the very valid considerations underlying police actions. The fact that there would be an alternative means of preventing injury does not change the fact that they effectively did so while also doing their job by upholding the law. —TomGarberson

2010-03-07 22:16:57   Jessica, I apologize for my antagonistic tone at times over the past few days. It wasn't necessary, nor was it appropriate. I should have just let things go once I made my point. Sorry about that, and I'm glad I didn't discourage you from standing up for your beliefs on the page, and on the issue of educational funding as a whole. While I disagree with your method, I respect your enthusiasm and willingness to take action. —TomGarberson

2010-03-08 10:23:41   I also feel that what you have listed under "What's happening with the UC budget" is very unbalanced. Just because something is supposed to be held accountable by the tax payers and the state does not mean it will be closely monitored. Investors and customers (students and their families) tend to be better watchmen when it comes to how their money is spent. One more thing, I might argue the sustainability of the Master Plan for Higher Education at some point as well. Just thought we should discuss to prevent an edit war. —hankim

2011-03-27 20:26:59   Hey Jessica, just a thought - why not make a "Protesting" page or something of the sort with a bit more of a how-to approach. Information on dos and don'ts, warnings, lessons learned, what have you. The Protests page really is focused more on documenting that have occurred or are being planned, rather than warning or instructing. —TomGarberson
