Hello, my name is Wes and I have been a Davis resident since 2000. I have been active on the DavisWiki since 2008, but due to an editing error I made, was forced to begin a new account which started me at 0 in August of 2010. I have since come to love the Wiki and spend entirely too much time on it doing what I am able to improve it and help the community.

I encourage anyone who is reading this to do the same, both here on the DavisWiki and on the [WWW]http://wikispot.org/Wiki_Directory where half the States are not represented at all, and the other half are barely touched. Davis is blessed to be a college town and having such a diverse group of individuals from throughout this country we live in, as well as other, who could help to spread the info about their former stomping grounds. There is also an ongoing quest to expand the wiki through other means such as the [WWW]http://localwiki.org/ founded by our very own Philip Neustrom. If it's just a monetary donation to assist this effort, or if it time and love of your old homes (along with a willingness to write every now and then), I encourage you all to do what you can to keep local history alive, wherever "local" happens to be for you.

One word of advice for any new editors, is to try to be as neutral as possible to avoid necessary conflicts. Once in a while they will happen without regard to your editing style, but more often than not, it becomes a fun and informative place for all in this fashion.

Have something you need to contact me about?

2011-03-21 18:48:26   Thanks for the invitation to the conversation. I don't feel that my input would be welcome based on how the community has responded to my participation in discussions like those. —JasonAller


2011-03-21 19:27:06   Btw... I'm at dinner, be back in a bit. Typing is easy, but putting serious thought into something and typing on a tiny keyboard is... bad. Grr... Can't compose thoughts on tiny keyboard. Wokky smash! On the other hand, reading and thinking about things is probably better than leaping in on this kind of thing. Word use... Failing... Keyboard.. Tiny... —JabberWokky


2011-03-21 21:40:32   By the way, I'm trying to abuse the system to find holes. First round of thoughts is that you might want to think of criteria for disputing a comment to invoke a vote. —JabberWokky


2011-03-21 21:47:52   It might be better to focus on a better process to foster decision making. A guideline of "disputed text is moved to the talk page for three days1 (unless there's a pressing reason2). Polls need to built using <method> to propose ideas(and I VASTLY prefer calling them polls rather than votes, because the process can begin again when new people or information shows up, and there are actually things that have to be vetoed — a business getting lots of people voting to allow them to promote themselves on the wiki kills the IRS agreement). (Sidenote: can you imagine how the Fraternity stuff will go in the future?)

Hurm. Perhaps just a guideline of "stay on topic, suggest an proposal or support an existing proposal"... but that's still vulnerable to all of an office staff signing up to support something. —JabberWokky


2011-03-21 22:09:05   Oh, heck... I was about to reply, and I just had the biggest "Oh" moment of this topic. Posting to the other page... —JabberWokky


2011-03-21 23:20:04   Thanks Wes, have a good night! —TomGarberson


2011-03-21 23:51:32   wes, who is voting on the village cab talk/talk page? im not sure how to read that entry —DavidPlacencia


2011-03-22 12:07:05   please end the vote. i have posted a letter of my own. i hope you can let it stay —DavidPlacencia


2011-03-22 12:12:06   (Psst — if you support it, move your vote over.) —JabberWokky


2011-03-22 18:15:21   i believe Mr Travis Martin voted but didnt know where to edit that in. —DavidPlacencia


2011-03-22 19:42:59   The number I gave for the 2010 population does not count the students living in UC Davis campus housing. The previous census results in the entry follow the same scheme so I just went with it. This Enterprise article explains a little more about exactly who was counted and who wasn't: [WWW]http://digital.davisenterprise.com/news/census-shows-growth-in-yolo-county/ScottMeehleib


2011-03-23 08:32:31   Re: burritos: If you haven't already had them, and you find yourself in the area, try Carolinas burritos in the Sacto area. Great beans, really tasty burritos. They are decently sized, but heavy — unless it's in the name, you don't get rice or lettuce. It's a tortilla full of beans in a bean burrito, all meat in a meat burrito, etc. Aldebertos is pretty good too. —JabberWokky


2011-03-23 10:44:29   Thanks for the edits! —TravisLindquist


2011-03-23 12:28:42   (Double deleted... kind of like stomping on it to make sure it's dead.) —JabberWokky


2011-03-23 18:40:58   Propose that on Front Page/Talk if you want. Philip isn't needed for something like that (no harm in talking to him, of course). —JabberWokky


2011-03-23 18:42:45   Oh, and the IRS restrictions are on [wikispot]WikiSpot under [wikispot]Community Guidelines and associated pages. —JabberWokky


2011-03-25 06:37:49   "It's not worth it" is a feeling I've got too, recently. Skirting burnout, but I recognize that. There's nothing wrong with backing off a bit to keep your head. At least I'm not dealing with weather that makes it look like you should head down to Hibbert's and ask if they can measure lumber in cubits. It's nice and sunny here, and just exploded into green. Walking around my yard for five minutes is better than prescription drugs. —JabberWokky


2011-03-25 13:55:10   Sorry Wes, I wasn't trying to cause a problem, just was putting his info in, not even sure why I put the revert in anyway. It would be fine with me if you redid the whole thing... —Davidlm


2011-03-26 20:45:22   DramaLlama is designed is an include—you can drop the entirety of the DramaLlama page onto another page using [[Include(DramaLlama)]]. If you try to copy/paste its contents, you'll wind up with a broken image link, since the DramaLlama image isn't uploaded on the new page. —TomGarberson


2011-03-26 21:19:37   Wes, you asked about plans for The Attendance Office. There was a show I hosted there this past Friday. Sorry I didn't see your comment in time so you could make it out for the music. I don't live at the house but I don't think they have any shows lined up. A good place to find out about Davis/Sac music events aside from the Events Board here on the wiki is the facebook group KDVS Events and also the website undietacos.org. Any shows to take place at The Attendance Office specifically will for sure be advertised on the facebook page and undietacos, so theose are good places to keep a lookout. =) —EliseKane


2011-03-27 15:13:11   The hearsay point — while not an absolute (I think we can safely relate events in the news or, say, council meetings that nobody on the wiki was at) is a good one. I'd call it an important factor to always consider, and I completely missed it. —JabberWokky


2011-03-28 20:54:12   I would support the no-ban option if it didn't have a provision for a ban in the future. If the situation changes, we can propose something new, no? —WilliamLewis


2011-03-29 18:07:50   Wes, I saw your comment on Sue's page and I think you might be blowing my input on the Ban JoshLawson page out of proportion. If I wanted to hijack the conversation as you claim I tried, I would have deleted everything else and replaced it with my two cents. I prefaced my statement with, "I don't know much about banning." Maybe I should have been more explicit with my question. If someone had been ranting all over the wiki about an African American calling him a N*****, what would the recourse be there? Would there be a ban? Using violent/dehumanizing language about women, in my mind, is the same deal, and I was trying to point that out as a comparison that might help people make a banning decision. You give me too much credit for trying to "manipulate" something to my "agenda." Hope that clears things up a bit. -Megan —MeggoWaffle


2011-03-31 19:45:34   I really like what you wrote about David Breaux. I think what he is doing is very inspiring. —ScottMeehleib


2011-04-01 08:48:12   I swear I saw the guy downtown a few times in the last couple of weeks? —hankim


2011-04-01 08:52:16   Thank you, Wes. :) —ScottMeehleib


2011-04-05 22:13:46   I think JA means the Beach Hut Deli/Talk page. —CovertProfessor


2011-04-06 00:52:17   the city have been slapdicks about picnic day, when the problem is minors with handles in backpacks —StevenDaubert


2011-04-06 18:20:36   What problems did the grad have last year?

sure it's out of towners who treat it like mardi gras instead of the UCD open house —StevenDaubert


2011-04-16 22:11:03   It's really all about the whirlpool anyway :) —MaryLieth


2011-04-18 11:25:51   Move on to free weights as soon as you can, even if you have to start with relatively light weights compared to machines. The main reason is that free weights work your core (stabilizing muscles) much more than machine weights. Most injuries in life are caused by a weak core so, if you're looking for general fitness, get to the squat rack, even if it's just squatting an empty bar. Lift dumbbells in an incline bench press... (And, if you see me, I'm no Hulk, but my back pain is much better when I spend time lifting free weights regardless of the heaviness of the weights.) Good book is New Rules of Lifting... —ScottLay


2011-04-22 11:13:10   wes, i recently removed my comment in regard to the accusation that was so hotly debated a month ago; Covert Professor calls that a white-wash and now my editing of the page is blocked. Is there some kind of grudge-thing going on ? —DavidPlacencia


2011-04-26 17:57:20   make sure you hit up the steam room! best part —StevenDaubert


2011-04-29 19:00:15   "Turns out the information was accurate after all" — what information? That an employee assaulted someone? Other information that was not directly related to the running of the business? —CovertProfessor


2011-04-29 20:26:14   I heard that story about The Paragon of course. I may present a different account. —BruceHansen


2011-05-02 13:04:08   Hey guy I know you are in the bar scene and all I wanted to run something by you:

call it 4 months ago I happened to be downtown picking up some drunkies whom I hadn't seen in a while. It was like 2:05 AM and I had agreed to meet them on the corner of G and 3rd. I'm standing on the South East corner of the intersection back to Ketmo when bouncer dude tries to Bro up on me. He rolls up on me trying to flex and look intimidating and says "YOU NEED TO LEAVE, NOW" I looked at him like he was crazy and said I have nothing to do with your establishment and I'm a private citizen on public property and you are a private citizen you don't tell me what to do. Dude tries to tell me it's immaterial and that I need to bounce. At this point I'm committed to my stance cause fuck that you can kick rocks, want me to flag down the officer I see down the street and see who is right? I honestly don't care that I'm in front (off to the side standing on the traffic calming planter) of your bar that is closing, I'm minding my own business and I haven't patronized your establishment. You can do what you want inside your place of business, but I'm not in it... If dude was polite it would have been no problem I would have dipped but he tried to flex on me and gave me a direct order... You aren't a cop I don't have to obey your direct lawful orders. I'm not trespassing I'm on public property... I understand the need to flush the people out of the bar, and then get them to stop congregating in front of it, but I'm no punk and if you come at me tripping you can sod off

Who is right? —StevenDaubert

Thanks Wes, good looking out Daubert


2011-05-03 19:33:34   You know, it's very hard to guess what people in the town will recognize right away and what they won't. I suspected that one would be fast, but I've thought that about ones that have lasted a week. I've also thought something would be really hard that was recognized in less than 24 hours. That's the best part of the game, not knowing who's knowing! Nicely done guess! —WesHardaker


2011-05-05 15:06:30   sure you are

we are all the wiki ambassadors for Davis

shame on you Wes for attempting to shirk your patriotic duty —StevenDaubert


2011-05-05 23:53:19   Good to meet you tonight, albeit briefly! Sorry, we would've stuck around for a bit, but there was a line building up behind us. —TomGarberson


2011-05-12 22:50:00   What is a good appetizer from little Prague? —NikhilDahal


2011-05-22 17:09:37   Ooh nice... will dollar pints be actual pints? Versus Sudwerk's "pints"... —TomGarberson


2011-05-22 19:04:08   Makes sense, you definitely don't want to give out incorrect information before things are finalized. Probably ought to call it "dollar beers" rather than "dollar pints" though, if it's not in at least 16-ish ounce glasses. —TomGarberson


2011-05-24 11:44:53   Thanks! —TomGarberson


2011-05-28 17:06:04   "Green" is — all to often — simply an empty term used to gain customers by having the right "keyword mix" in your marketing description. —JabberWokky


2011-06-09 13:52:30   2011-06-09 13:29:48 Wes-P (the war hero)- Hey Wes you wanted a name? My name is Randy the guy with the spider-web tattoo. What business do you have coming on friends fraternity website to encourage that people continue to post negative feedback on their page? Telling the administrators on Davis Wiki to encourage other students to bag on this strong organization about some of their members age? I really don't know where you really have a part in it? Now as for me an you. Im not sure what right you have calling me a degenerate. A guy who served successfully in Iraq and now here excelling with a 3.0 in Managerial Economics. So you say you are a vet and now you are 40 some odd years old collecting $2 dollars here and there and you are some how successful? Well I'll tell you what I will be doing in a few days, I will be graduating with my diploma on Saturday. Following that, this degenerate you are speaking of will be flying to Australia and the Bali Islands for the entire summer. Let me get your address I will send you a post-card. Following that I will be returning to my former job, which is Unionized and back to making $45 dollars an hour and continuing to build on that 401K something a war hero like you could never imagine. This degenerate spent a year in Iraq fighting so people like you can clean the toilets at your restaurant when I get back. Before you go spewing false information on the only place you feel you have power (the web) walk your old-happy ass back to that restroom and take a long look and ask yourself "what have I done lately?" I mean if you were in my platoon you really wouldn't have lasted a day. I guess that's why you not eating right now because I refuse to pay you that $2 on a Friday night for an empty place. I mean if you need some extra cash you are more than welcome to do some yard work around my house while I am doing real man's work at an age most likely 15 years younger than you. Although I think the most you can handle is reading the birth date on my I.D. when I used to come there last year before the 2$ cover charge. That is another thing, get your damn facts straight, I have yet to be kicked out of a bar yet in Davis in the two years that I have been here. I mean the only information you really gave is that you told someone with a spider web tattoo to leave and that "I am not sure when it happened but he was bothering patrons." Before you go spouting out the mouth you should come up with some details, it goes hand in hand with doing your job right. Because If you were truly and efficiently doing your job right you would have checked my I.D. and learned my name already. I mean really you should have learned my name all last year you saw me pretty frequently, but I understand, being a bouncer takes a young mind to respond quickly and logically. You might be better suited doing the dishes. Fact is I was not there a couple weeks ago but it was a couple months ago during lunch when there was no cover charge and me being the only guy in line to give you your two dollar for dinner every Friday night. I suggest you keep your comments to yourself because that fraternity that you are heavily promoting negative feedback on their page will be here long after you and were here long before you became so successful at Little Prague. Yeah and the tattoo, I thought it looked pretty cool after I watched American Me. I mean if you were so interested in tattoos I have one across my chest and all up and down my left arm. And before you go saying that I was bothering girls on a Friday or Saturday night I am usually one of the handful of people in there and I probably brought the girl. I mean jealousy comes from envy, I totally understand. Some people just have that competitive drive while others like you find no motivation in life other to bag on fraternities that have 50 people mind you, that put the food on your table. So I ask you to please ease up on the personal opinions, nobody really cares about a (45 year old bouncer since age is such an issue to you) "that could have one day made it, but the chips are all stacked up against him. Talk to your bartender Ryan I have hung out with here a few times lately and she could teach you some manners and maybe how to just get through a day with a happy thought. Until then at ease soldier and don't forget to give me your adress so I can send you a postcard from the islands of Bali. I will make sure it costs 2$. Yeah by the way I am not 30 I am 27, young, successful, lots of money in the account and 401K that is building as we speak. Im glad that Prague does such a great job at choosing its staff. —Randy21
