2007-03-27 18:58:56   I think we ought to split this page into two different pages: People (ie. real people with full names and which link to useful information), and Users (ie. RocWikians, which it seems to me could probably be a system generated page). I'd be willing to do the work and help maintain both pages. —DavidHowe

2007-03-27 21:49:41   David, I think that is a good idea. There is some code out there for our wiki software that sould do a 'users' directory automaticlly if we set it up. IMHO, give it a day or so for other feeedback, but I'm all for it. —FarMcKon

2007-03-27 22:04:10   Far is correct. The newer versions of Sycamore use this as a default. The /Users page is an auto generated list of user accounts. User accounts also live at /Users/UserName with the new code. At some point RocWiki will be moved over to the newer architecture. —AdamDewitz

2007-04-25 16:27:54   There are several people listed last name first but the majority of people are first name first. Is there a reason for this, or can I change over the last name firsts to first name firsts? —RachelBlumenthal

2007-04-25 16:56:13   I think the People pages should be composed of two parts: one part would be an (autogenerated) listing of RocWikians (ie. users), the other would be the Noteworthy Residents. Perhaps the standard listing order should be by last name, but names displayed first name first? —DavidHowe

2007-05-24 15:47:43   I kind of agree with DavidHowe's last statement, in that listings should be alphabetical by last name (which is the proper way to do it, after all) but if possible, the names should be iterated "firstname lastname." It's just easier to spot notable names you recognize when they're in the order you're used to seeing them in the paper.

However, I actually disagree with splitting names between "notable/not-notable," since who can say what is and what is not a notable name? If you were in a really cool band that played ten years ago, someone thinks you're pretty notable, even though the rest of us may not have a clue. In a city the size of Rochester, I'd say keeping all the names together is not only diplomatic and argument-averse, but also highly desirable in keeping with what I like best about RocWiki. —DragonFlyEye

2009-05-18 10:01:24   I am white. I just went to soho's for my first time Saturday ive been to other clubs like liquid and Tilt. Liquid is def to packed and tilt is to gay for me. When i went into Soho's i thought it was perfect just the amount of people i would want to be in a club. Although i got a drink poured all over me i started back up with dancing like a minute later. I thought it was the best club ive been to thus far. The bouncers and staff were very nice to me. If your not getting in cause your black than go to another club like liquid its pretty much a population of black people. —EHaZzZ16

2015-03-27 19:50:41   I am a rather well-known Rochesterian ("Del Rivers") from several short films (see IMDB) and two ongoing shows on cable/internet (YouTube or Funny Or Die) - "Frontal Lobe & Dumplings" comedy sketch show and "Del Rivers Show". I also have a new CD "Perugia Way" on Jargon Records. Can someone please add me to the well-known and/or musicians' listing. Greatly appreciated!! - Del Rivers aka James P Bulmahn. —JimBulmahn

2015-03-29 13:08:35   Regarding Del Rivers. The IMDB lists three shorts, a radio show on WITR and being an assistant to Gary the Happy Pirate in the 90s. His Twitter account has 329 follows, despite him following over 2000 people. (I personally have more followers than that.) I'm not sure the Show on the Funny or Die site makes a person famous, you can upload videos to that site almost as easily as you can to YouTube. I could not find any documentation on the many rock bands his Twitter account said he has written for. If he is a notable person who needs a page, I'd think pretty much any other aspiring amateur comedian in Rochester deserves one as well.
