This article is unnecessarily UCD-centric - its text incorrectly assumes that all interested readers are UC Davis affiliates.Perhaps you could take some time to help rewrite it so that it reflects a broader spectrum of the Davis community?

I was looking for that as well!

This entry currently has little or no relevance to the community of Davis. Nearly every general topic can be relevant to Davis, but this one hasn't been connected yet. Hit edit and add a Davis specific connection or perspective to relate this topic to our town.

looks nicer than ucd centric, but a tad different in message

Those comments stand because nobody else knows more. I can't correct it because for all I know, the proprietor actually says "whenever Grandma is up" when asked for her hours. If you know more about the store, please don't complain about the wrong information, simply correct it. It's clear that not many people know much (one of the two comments is "Wish there was more info"), so please add what you know. In the absence of any real information, poorly informed opinion will always fill the void... that has nothing to do with the wiki and is purely a function of human behavior. All you added in your comment was opinion, no expansion or additional information about the actual subject (other than the correction of the name, for which I thank you — I've renamed the entry). —JabberWokky

The reviews you read here are worth what you paid to see them.

map page testing

  • Davis Food Co-op— the bulletin board at the Davis Food Co-op is awesome.

    the bulletin board at Davis Food Co-op


You must be logged in to comment on this page. Please log in.

I'd say just make sure each location (e.g. co-op) has a map point on that place's page. That means that this page won't show you all of the points by clicking on the map, but if you are interesting in finding a given place you can just follow the link and then click "Map." The problem with putting a bunch of map points on a single page is that it could clutter up the map (nearby locations when looking at other pages) with bulletin board locations that are on top of places like the co-op. —PhilipNeustrom

2007-08-27 13:10:21   right, that was the plan. Pages similar to this one would be included in the main list of bulletin boards, with each subpage containing a map to that particular board. —jefftolentino

2007-08-27 13:12:16   I mean to say that there's no reason to create a map point for the Davis Food Co-op board because there's a page for the Davis Food Co-op and it has a map on it? —PhilipNeustrom

2007-08-27 13:18:52   I see. There is no way at this point to de-clutter the other markers showing up on the map? I thought this might be good for parts of campus where the board is on one wing of a larger structure(s), such as the memorial union. —jefftolentino

2010-04-19 16:40:00   Useless edit! —WilliamLewis

2010-04-19 17:01:53   I think better mapping functions would be very useful. This page is definitely old, but I was hoping to generate some new ideas for improving how we map things here. I think my main problem here was that everthing mapped within a few hundred feet of this bulletin board on Daviswiki showed up the map. Would be nice to weed out unneeded map points.

On a similar note, it would also be nice to be able to put together maps of similar things in town, (such as red light cameras, bike pumps, bulletin boards, etc.) —jefftolentino

map page

Resident Garden

I'm trying to provide maps to different bulletin boards around town, and designed this this morning. Not sure if it is the best way. involves creating a new page for at least anything being mapped. Still doesn't provide concise mappage of all the boards either. Just de-clutterifies (im making up words now) the map and allows individual locations to be called out. Any comments?
