Eris smiled upon me today and randomly made me $23 richer. Since the amount of currency that fell into my lap was such an auspicious quantity, I decided it was only proper to consult my pineal gland. Also sprach meine Zirbeldrüse: "Hey, you've been in this town for three years and you still haven't gotten a wiki sticker. Perhaps you should have some made?" So I go to check out the website for the sticker people. 250 stickers could be had for merely $23! Coincidence? I think not. Anyway, since it's my money, I'm going to get one of my designs printed up. If anyone wants to get more (chunks of 250 cost $23) so we can evangelize more freshmen, drop me a line. I'll fulfill any remaining Wiki Sticker/Requests with my chunk. —WilliamLewis
In order to get our name out even more, we propose printing an attractive sticker that can be put in windows of businesses, cars, homes. With the funds raised so far through donations, we should be able to afford a reasonable amount of quality stickers in the near future (note: stickers are dangerously cheap — about $20 for 200)
Would you like to design the Davis Wiki sticker? Please post your suggestions and design ideas below!
- I think small to medium clear vinyl stickers would be best. That way they can go into windows without becoming an eyesore.
An initial wiki sticker
500 prototype wiki stickers were created. The sticker is a black-on-white vinyl design. The design is the very obvious wiki logo with the url underneath. Some stickers were dropped off (08-17-05) at Cafe Roma by campus.
If you want one of these, add your name to Wiki Sticker/Requests and ninjas will come to your home while you sleep and drop off a sticker. Or flip out and kill you. Whatever.

2005-08-16 09:17:13 It's sexy, but maybe making it look like the banner would be better: Black with white text and that gray wheel behind it? —GiladGurantz

2005-08-17 02:18:57 I say we throw a few dozen up around the third floor. —BrentLaabs
2005-08-17 14:15:54 a square sticker with the circle, then url below. the circle would grab people's attention, then the url will give them a place to answer their questions. —MichelleAccurso
2005-08-17 17:59:09 hey, how do I get me one of them there stickers? —JanelleAlvstadMattson
2005-08-17 18:19:42 I purpose a page called Where Is Your Wiki Sticker? and people can post pics of all the unique places they put their wiki sticker. For instance someone *cough* put a wiki sticker in the space between the smaller elevator and the shaft in the MU. So the next time you take the smaller elevator up to the third floor look up as your leaving..... —JimSchwab
