All of Scott's old wiki information is now wrong and out of date and kinda funny.
He is now an Ubuntu developer using this wiki page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ScottRitchie

Hello there, I was just curious about the new road / street conventions. Why Blvd w/out a '.' instead of spelled out as well, and what to do about 'Ave.' and 'Way' and 'Cir.' etc? -AmeliaCarlson
What is up with your mostly random new conventions? Why add The to names that don't have it? -Jevan
Explanation for new street convention:
There were some contradictions among the existing links, so the previous method of having "St." didn't quite seem right. Also, it wasn't being strictly adhered to - Olive Drive, for example, was not "Olive Dv." This way seems more intuitive, and I think I got the last of the changes. It's also the way Wikipedia does it.
I didn't change Blvd to its elongated spelling because I couldn't remember how to spell it, heh. Change it if you like. -ScottRitchie
2005-02-08 00:54:10 I think it's fine. Let's just stick to it and make redirects where needed? —PhilipNeustrom
2005-08-20 04:51:18 this the same scott that hid in the sex hole? —MichelleAccurso
2005-08-20 16:35:46 Yes. —ScottRitchie
2005-08-30 11:23:44 Perquisites is a legitimate word, and is actually the source of "perks" when used in the sense of benefits. Dumbing down is fine, though. ; -) —AlphaDog
2007-05-03 03:15:43 Any ideas where you're planning on going to grad school? —JabberWokky
2012-09-22 12:44:23 Ricos while still active in woodland had a location in Davis. But for the most part Woodland centric stuff can be moved to respective wiki —StevenDaubert
2012-09-22 14:08:02 A lot of us want to keep such pages on the Davis Wiki because they have a Davis perspective. Please don't move them.
2012-09-24 13:24:14 Personally, I agree with CP. Having a copy on WW doesn't mean it needs to be deleted off DW. —JabberWokky
2012-09-24 13:50:33 Hi Scott, I guess I'm not sure what you meant by "moving" the entries. If you mean deleting entries from DW, then I think most editors would disagree with that. If you just mean copying and pasting content from Davis Wiki to Woodland Wiki, then I would be okay with that, assuming there isn't already content on the Woodland Wiki regarding a given subject. I'd also highly encourage the addition of intertwiki links in instances where they don't already exist. I think it's reasonable to add a disclaimer to all entries regarding Woodland topics that appear on Davis Wiki, such as "This entry represents the opinions of the Davis Community regarding a business [or whatever it is] located in Woodland. For perspectives from the Woodland community, please check out [Interwiki link]." —ScottMeehleib
Yup. That's what I've advocated in the past, and personally, I dig it. It allows local perspective on things that are relevant to both communities. A few regional things, like the Sacramento airport, will probably have distinct entries on most of the local wikis in the region, with specific notes on how best to get there, perspective from the local culture, etc. -jw
We already have an include for this exact issue for Sacramento locations. It'd be easy enough to put one together for Woodland. —TomGarberson
Is there a way to transclude things from a different wiki? Surely the Davis/Woodland pages could at least share some data like the address/phone number template —ScottRitchie
2012-10-05 19:05:13 Nope, not as of now. —JabberWokky
2012-10-06 14:39:37 The current software (Sycamore) is not really being maintained. Some patches have been proposed (even written) but haven't been applied, as the main thrust of development is toward localwiki.org right now, which is oriented as a solution for community wikis. I'm also working on a side project (which is actually about to launch any day now) as an option for the non-community wikis in wikispot. —JabberWokky
