2009-11-09 21:55:58   It isn't just about favorable reviews. There are some editors that have come to represent a business in which they have an interest and participated in the collaborative editing process. They may be business owners, or just employees, but they have demonstrated good customer service by how they interacted with other editors who sometimes left anonymous and acerbic comments. There are also those who came here and didn't get the idea that this is a community resource and treated it like just another advertising venue that they felt entitled to control. —JasonAller

2009-11-10 11:22:04   The Davis Wiki is not about helping (or harming!) local businesses. It's for the community. That's everyone who lives, works, goes to school, or just visits Davis. In that way I believe it benefits all local businesses. It helps by bringing exposure, by sharing customers' experences, and by simply giving hours, address/map info. that saves them having to answer the phone. We are not anti-business by any stretch. I've encouraged them to get involved. —SteveDavison

2010-02-03 08:03:20   Can anyone tell me how I might add a hotlink that goes to a specific paragraph or comment on a page? I just know how to add a link that goes to that page but not a specific section of it. —DagonJones

2010-02-23 21:46:51   Does anyone know how to upload video? —DagonJones

2010-05-19 16:24:48   Is there a community orchestra in Davis? —superamazing123

2010-05-19 17:12:21   la crepe would be a good candidate —StevenDaubert

2011-03-28 12:47:35   I'm ordering new business cards, and am considering using a Google Voice number to have a local (530) phone number on them (my cell/main line is a Fresno number). So, my question: is it unprofessional or awkward to have calls to my work number pick up with a recorded message saying, "Hello! Please state your name after the tone, and Google Voice will try to reach (recording of my voice) Tom Garberson"? After the caller does so, it dials through to me and states the name they gave. This would be in addition to the cell number on the business card. —TomGarberson

2011-04-29 22:09:46   Is there any place in town to get Turkish coffee? Or any place that can powder coffee finely enough to make it at home? I'm running low :( —TomGarberson

2011-06-29 12:44:31   Anyone know which venues in town are showing Women's World Cup coverage? Next game is 8:30am on ESPN. I'm assuming The Graduate will be open and showing it. Anything else? —TomGarberson

2011-07-13 23:51:37   Anyone know a band that does weddings and covers recent songs? I am getting married in late August (in the Bay Area) and really want to have live music. Quite a trip if the band is in Sac area, but I figured someone might have some ideas. —MikeIvanov

2011-09-08 23:10:30   Is there a place in Davis to fill a 5# CO2 cannister? I know there's an Airgas in Woodland, although I hear it's closed on weekends (not ideal). I've heard there's a place in Sacramento that'll fill on weekends, but that's kind of a pain. —TomGarberson Somewhere on campus? Daubert

2011-09-10 22:05:02   I'm looking for a yoga studio; primarily I'm running for my cardiovascular fitness so I'm not interested in anything super intense like bikram for example; I'd like to find a couple classes a week that aren't too packed with people and also isn't 99% female because I hate feeling out of place. Thanks! —AndrewPotter

2011-12-13 12:48:51   Anybody know a good place in the area to buy bongo drums? —ScottMeehleib

2012-01-03 09:25:12   Does anyone know the best deal in town for a smog check? (does NOT need to be a test only/ gold shield center) EZ smog quoted me $55 out the door with their coupon. —DagonJones

Anyone in town use Sprint or T-Mobile? I'm looking into finding a new carrier in the fairly near future and Sprint and T-Mobile have the most attractive plans on their face. Anyone have any experience with either one? Sprint has the added convenience of having a store in town, so I'd tend to lean that way. The two phones would be used primarily in Davis, Sacramento, and Vacaville. Any advice would be welcome! —TomGarberson also I have sprint solid reception around town my house is in the middle of two towers so I get occasional missed calls but they sent me a personal cell tower for when I'm home T-mobile isn't actually a cell provider they lease from Verizon the airtime that is. In Sac and Vacaville you should be okay with either

2012-07-27 16:10:19   Does anyone happen to know if/where you can buy moving boxes in town? I know Navin's at least used to put them out for free and whatnot, but I don't mind spending a few bucks and just getting nice solid ones. Does ACE sell them? I'd rather not have to go to Home Depot/Lowe's. —TomGarberson

2012-08-04 01:28:16   Is there a better tasting veggie burger than Boca Burger at any of the Davis grocery stores? I like the Boca Burger, but, after going quasi-vegetarian, I was wondering if it's really the best. —ScottMeehleib

2012-08-04 02:41:30   If you're tired of veggie burgers, try felafel! There are tons of recipes for make your own at home. Tasty alternative to veggie burgers, and packed with just as many nutrients as a boca burger. I find felafel less intimidating than tofu. —MichelleKoehler

2012-08-27 09:25:42   Does anyone know what the black body outlines are? There is one on the greenbelt near the South Davis Softball fields and one on 8th streat near Anderson. They are like a chalk outline from a crime scene but black paint on black asphalt. They have been there a while, it is possible that they used to be white paint and were covered up with black paint. Some kind of treasure hunt or maybe an art project? —DagonJones

2014-02-06 19:33:14   Can I sell items on here? If so, how do I do it? Judy —judyclark
