Wiki/April Fool's Day, 2010

departed.png This entry refers to a mostly departed wiki that is feeling unloved and wants to move to [WWW]Topeka.
All information here is for historical reference only, or because the wiki feels like it. It's getting really dark in here. Goodbye cruel world.


Goodbye! You are now leaving the community wiki for Davis, California, USA! This is the final page on the Wiki. You must turn around and go back to see the rest of the Wiki. This project was an interconnected community effort to explore, discuss and compile anything and everything about Davis — especially the big, irritating things. This entire site was maintained by the people who used it: Anyone could have edited this website! We hope you enjoyed your stay.

If you're new, you should have checked out the Introduction. Or perhaps tried reading a random page: Empire Crew But do you listen to directions? No.

Davis Wiki has been part of the local community for over five years and is a founding site of the [wikispot]Wiki Spot project, which provides a home and interconnectivity for all kinds of wiki projects. Goodbye from the wiki! Don't you wish you spent more time here?

Turkeys in Davis

yargobblegobble-avast.jpg During this Holiday season, including what some refer to as Turkey day, let's not forget the majesty that is the Turkey. While some enjoy eating said bird, others enjoy watching the sometimes quirky and regal behavior of Ben Franklin's favorite bird that almost became our national symbol.

Around town you might see some wild roamers by the cemetery district or over by the sustainable research area, including the student farm, domes, and the experimental college community gardens. Or the weekend before thanksgiving the annual turkey trot brings out a lot of turkeys of another kind.

For those more adventurous check out Branigan's Turkey Farm near town, famed for supplying turkeys to the White House under President Reagan.

Hints for Editing

A good place to start was by checking out the Davis Wiki Guide.

A Wiki is a linked set of pages that anybody can edit and contribute to if they have the time, access to internet, and a computer. [wikipedia]Wikipedia is the prime example of a successful wiki project. Also, check out [wiki]Why Wiki Works for some information on the philosophy of wiki.

If you want to practice editing you can play around in the Wiki Sand Box, or you may first want to check out our FAQ. We also have a list of All Pages in the wiki.

Feel free to come back some time and make new pages — and try to remember to link them. Also, if you don't know where to start or don't have any ideas, check out To Do.

To see the most recent edits made you could have looked at the Recent Changes page. Also, we hope you checked your userpage as people might have left you comments on there.
