2007-05-14 10:28:28 Does anyone here know the phone number for the summer softball leagues at Cobb's Hill? —TimmyYoung
2007-05-21 20:51:05 I don't know if I'm just dumb, but is there a page for general questions about stuff in rochester and not really about Rocwiki. I was wondering if anyone had info on adult sports leagues. —JohnJoseph
2007-07-12 14:02:59 I added Quinlan's pub and the page has http://www.rocwiki.org/Quinlan%27s_Pub
and when I search for quinlan it comes up empty.
I put them in because they now have open wireless
How does one fix that besides putting in a new page?
the apostrophe is not legal in the names? etc. I can add them again under their other name, K J Quinlan Pub and Brew, if needed without the apostrophe. Answer to general questions about rochester previous comment: inforochester.com may help —JackGreenky
2007-07-12 19:00:12 The search feature on this site is a little idiosyncratic and sometimes doesn't return results with punctuation. However, if you search for Quinlan's on Google, you'll find that the first link is the page you made on RocWiki. You'll also find that the Wifi Hotspots and Pubs/Bars pages link to it, so you're all set. —DaveMahon
2007-07-12 20:01:30 The search issue is a known issue and we're working on it. One interim solution is to rename the page (rename is one of the buttons on the edit page) to the "real" name. Rename leaves the old page as a redirect so no links are broken. —RottenChester
2007-09-26 14:12:07 Why can't I add Spirits Review a LOCAL webpage to the Food and Drinks Section ? —ChristopherCarlsson
Spirits Review discusses the relative qualities of myriad spirits and your adventures in finding and trying them. If local spirits appear on there (I didn't check all that hard), they certainly aren't the primary focus of the site.
2008-02-28 00:31:53 I think that Organizations should be a subject heading, on par with services, etc. rather than under Living. Related note, there is no clear location for organizations that are not spiritual or non-profit as far as I can tell. —MantraSix
2008-04-28 17:35:03 Much cleaner look...much less cluttered —PeteB
2008-04-30 17:49:09 I like the look! Seems good. —BadFish
2008-05-01 09:31:40 I would rather see "Current Events" above "Important Reminders", but aside from that, I like it better than the current front page. —AlexanderGartley
2008-05-01 18:06:31 I went back and forth on that a lot. It's useful to have meeting reminders near the top, but it is nice to emphasize the various things to be done in town. I'm open to changing it though. Anybody else have a strong opinion one way or the other? —DaveMahon
2008-05-01 18:17:27 Well, I think the info in "Important Reminders" should be on top, but visually, it looks like "Current Events" should be on top. Any way to leave the information where it is but switch the layouts? (Are you following me on that?) —BadFish
2008-05-23 17:32:23 First time user...trying to locate an article that was published in todays (5-23-08) Rochester Business Journal. Is this possible? Thanks for any help. —Helen
2008-09-03 14:14:41 TWO TASTE DOT COM is history. —BradMandell
2008-09-07 09:33:55 From August 6 through September 5, the following links off the Front Page got at least 100 clicks: Jobs, Apartments, Shopping, Restaurants, Famous Residents, Summer Guide, Events Board, People.
From June 23 through September 6, the following links off the Front Page got 0 clicks: Farm Markets, Farmers' Markets, Pharmacies, Rocwiki, Want to help (the latter two are in the intro paragraph at the top of the page) —DaveMahon
2008-09-07 10:35:38 I suspect folks get to the learn more, click through and don't need the welcome your help. Does the Want To Help page get many hits from the other link-ins Wiki Community and Wiki Community/RocWiki in the Classroom? I just did some click throughs myself so the count will be of next time.
I suspect that a lot of newcomers to the site come mostly via search engine hits or external links to one of our pages. A great feature would be to recognize that and automatically add a button link to the Welcome Your Help page. Is there any tweakable functionality around the USerName - NewUSer Login distinction at the top of page. One thought would be to have a conditional FrontPage for never-been-seen users, returning users (cookie only), and logged in (cookie) users.
2008-10-28 10:14:46 How do I create a new article? I don't see any links for that. —MaxCalvada
2008-11-29 17:10:36 Hi, I started a page on RocWiki a long time ago, but now I don't see how I can do that. I host a weekly comedy show in Rochester and we'd like to get it listed here. How can I do so? Thanks. —MaxCalvada
2008-12-05 13:19:20 when I click on a user name it goes to a not found page? —JosephFerrara
2009-03-14 22:59:04 What is the best way to handle bad links? Should I remove the link or somehow mark it bad, but preserve the original? —WayneArthurton

2009-05-05 08:28:03 Anybody have a landscape/stonescape contractor they love? I was looking for someone good to build a flagstone patio in my yard. —chrissyortiz
2009-11-18 14:29:00 I have a proposed edit for the intro paragraph on the Front Page. It would be great if in the part that says "what they love or loathe about their city" the word "love" was a wiki link to the Optimism page, and the word "loathe" was a link to the Pessimism page.
Just a thought :) —AlexanderGartley
2009-11-18 15:28:58 I like it, Alexander! That's a minor-enough change that I think we can just go ahead and do it. It's only linking and doesn't change the structure or format of the paragraph. If there are any comments, we can discuss it on the list. —PeteB
2009-12-14 14:44:40 How does the bookmark feature work? —martingugino
2009-12-21 12:47:36 Would it be possible to change the sort order of the comments so that the new comments appear at the top, and the older comments move down the page after a few years? —martingugino
2010-01-12 19:30:00 Hey RocWiki folks. I'm a former Rochesterain and I started BufWiki cuz I missed how awesome this wiki is. Brad Mandell came over to help and had practically run it. I need your help to show him some love. He's going through some tough time, but I thought it would be cool if we had something like a million tweet salute. Check out my blog post about it and please send me your responses. Thanks all.
2011-12-12 13:49:30 We need to add a "Breweries" link to the Home page so that the many (new-ish) local breweries (Naked Dove, Roc Brewing, 3HB, etc) can get some air time like the local wineries. —huxley75
2012-08-28 16:26:23 Can someone add a Food Truck Category within the restaurants? I can't seem to figure out where I can create a new page. Thanks! —gordonanderson
2012-08-28 17:03:06 I think we should just rename Street Meat to Food truck or create a food truck page and redirect to Street Meat. —Damiankumor
2012-08-29 12:56:41 I guess I can't edit the front page, but someone should fix the spelling error: "Submt a logo for the RocWiki Logo Contest!!!" —MattDana
2012-08-29 13:18:22 I ficxed it. Thanks Matt —peteb
2012-09-16 07:16:28 how can you suggest more restarants
2012-09-16 18:16:04 It's a wiki, you can create any restaurant you know about. To get started try a search first, and if that doesn't come up you'll get instructions on how to create the page. —Damiankumor
2012-11-28 11:46:22 Does anyone know how to insert a twitter follow button into a page? I attempted to use the code from twitter but it appears to be too much html/java for it to work. —MattSosenko
Matt sorry but the Twitter button format won't work in our current format. —PeteB
2013-05-29 10:19:20 Looking for some business related events or non profit fundraising events. any ideas??? —jamesr
