2007-05-28 23:51:36   Welcome to the wiki and I hope you have some great content & reviews you can add. —TravisOwens

2007-05-29 01:09:40   Um, thanks Travis. The welcome is a little belated, but appreciated none the less. :) —DaveMahon


2007-06-06 21:39:04   try submitting your RocWiki profile to the [WWW]all-knowing world brain? —NathanHenderson

2007-06-07 15:26:38   The idea for your More Shopping page was good, but the execution would not scale well. Even if the page included everything you listed, it wouldn't fit on 100 computer screens. Instead I made each item a separate index page. I didn't really delete anything you made, just smashed it into a thousand pieces and sprinkled it all over the wiki. I hope you like this more RocWiki-like format and help me make it better. —TravisOwens

2007-06-08 15:33:52   Dave-thanks for the clarification. I've just been ovwewhelmed by multiple crises at home lately.. —PeteB


2007-07-02 23:16:45   Dave-sorry I missed you.....would've sworn I caught you before. —PeteB

2007-07-15 20:15:20   Google does love me! This profile now appears on page 10, although the other pages haven't changed. Damned those FBI computer forensics experts, real estate investors, doctors, lawyers, publishers, teachers, editors, politicians, Masons, builders and athletes that stand between me and page 1. —DaveMahon

2007-07-18 19:24:46   Dave-thanks for catching me on the issue w/ California Rollin/Talk...unfortunately I don't always get to rocwiki before about 3pm....appreciate the headsup —PeteB


2007-08-08 14:43:33   I like the posteridea! —PeteB

2007-08-08 15:32:50   I like the poster, too. —RottenChester

2007-08-08 17:22:57   I'll throw some up around the URMC and a few other places I haunt with bulletin boards. I figure if a bunch of other people do the same around the area campuses, community centers, laundromats, etc, we'll get pretty good coverage with minimal cost to any one person. —DaveMahon

2007-08-11 14:46:02   Dave—my peteboulay/biztemplate is quick cheatsheet for me alone-I didn't touch the main business template —PeteB

2007-08-23 19:37:04   My fault-fixed-thanks for the heads-up! —PeteB

2007-08-24 21:25:58   Dave-we oughta go to lunch sometime.... —PeteB

2007-08-27 18:51:13   We had a great time! We reserved the pavillion in the park which is literally a walk up the road from my wife's aunt's house. We were there from 1pm-6pm —PeteB


2007-09-05 21:24:30   Read your mail, boss :) —PeteB

2007-09-18 08:47:10   Thank you for hooking up Johnny's page. I appreciate it. —GaryPalmerJr

2007-09-18 14:34:16   Dave—The Events Board says 1pm for me...I think its a time setting issue. Check your settings in the upper right corner below your name. I'll try to fix it meantime. UPDATE: It won't let me. I've emailed rotten—PeteB

2007-09-18 17:34:21   Eh Cest lavie-I'll be there Sunday...going to try to make it early due to limited parking —PeteB

2007-09-26 12:38:59   Hi Dave, Yes,Please !- Thnk you,I am obviously not editing in the right spot!
Again thanks for the help!
Chris —ChristopherCarlsson

2007-09-26 15:15:51   Dave, Thank you very much for all the help! Do you know Gerry Syzmanski by the way?
—Christopher Carlsson —ChristopherCarlsson

2007-09-29 22:18:42   Hi Dave. Thanks for the link to Pride & Joy; I really appreciate it. —BillyBelknap


2007-10-05 19:47:32   I just finished the story! It has a happy ending! —JoannaLicata

2007-10-17 19:42:20   Joanna did the favicon - I think she did a nice job. —RottenChester

2007-10-17 19:43:12   I will tell you what, keep allowing slander on the page and there will be legal action next. The claims on the page are completely fictitious and
are therefore liable. —JoseSanchez

2007-10-19 08:23:38   Gerry Syzmanski takes pictures of everybody and everything. You may know him from that ... —JasonOlshefsky


2007-11-03 17:42:24   hi Dave, thanks for helping out with my page, i dig the changes! cheers, gp. —GregPaul

Two comments were redacted by MissGia. See revisions 42 and 43 of DaveMahon to review them.

2007-11-17 16:31:42   I went through Avon this last Spring and saw that it was no longer there (Big John's BBQ). —DabeernFooddude

2007-11-17 16:36:40   I don't think you are going to have any luck finding any rhubarb unless it is frozen. Rhubarb can only be harvested during months not ending in "R". —DabeernFooddude

2007-11-18 12:22:41   I would also try BJ's Wholesale Club for rhubarb. I remember my ex-fiance used to sometimes luck out and find some in their huge frozen foods section. Abundance Coop is another place to try. —DabeernFooddude

2007-11-28 09:57:33   Dave, sorry about my links omission: I thought that happened automatically when I clicked on "Would you like to create a new page"? I did add breadcrumbs, though, as a partial atonement for my sin. Pictures of said parks coming soon, once I take them on my dog walks. —KatieSchmitz


2007-12-02 10:51:10   Re: your question, I'm a resident and homeowner in the Monroe Village. —JasonHaremza

2007-12-06 17:43:23   something I found that you might find informative.

Editing Comments
One of the formerly "unspoken rules" of RocWiki is that each user's comments are their own. Nobody else should edit those comments. If you disagree with an opinion expressed in a comment, just add a comment with your own opinion. This of course implies that it is also inappropriate to edit other users' comments for grammar, spelling, etc. The only acceptable edit to someone else's comment is to "wikify" page names if another page was mentioned in the comment. This enhances the interconnectedness of the wiki. Malicious editing of other users' comments is potentially a bannable offense.

2007-12-06 21:50:11   Thanks for making the unwritten rule, written. —RottenChester

2007-12-06 23:37:53   on 2007-12-06 20:28:53 dave macmahon writes: If your comment had been in any way salient to Tops or in support or rebuttal of any comments, I would have gladly left it. However, you chose to place a personal jab that would make no sense to anyone save you and MissGia. —DaveMahon

Other than yourself, no one has appointed you editor; but if you wish to arrogate that responsibility to yourself, then I'm sure you are prepared to accept responsibility for whatever happens on this bulletin board, a/k/a wiki. —MrPhil

2007-12-07 00:30:19   On 2007-12-07 00:23:55 DaveMahon writes I'm not going to get into an argument with you. RocWiki is not a government controlled forum, so in essence, none of us have first amendment rights, except as far as the rest of the community allows them to exercise them.

I also want to say that I happen to agree with your additions to the Etiquette page. I would say, however, that since MissGia has asked you not to refer to her as Missy that you respect her wishes (which, for the record, you seem to be doing).

You're not under attack, so please stop acting as if you were. —DaveMahon

So this was all about referring to MissGia as Missy? What is she in rehab? Just joking. I'm cool with the community. Peace —MrPhil

2007-12-07 03:06:11   I agree with you 100% that we should have policies that maintain decorum on the wiki. I would just like to see the policies reflect that, and I think we need to update the policies.

If you're going to say that they are only guidelines and not hard and fast rules, then you leave the wiki open for anyone to do as they please because guidelines are only suggestions to follow. We need to have rules that are agreed on by the community so we can point to a community document that outlines what should or should not be done when someone does something we don't like. A wiki either has to be completely open or have concrete rules to follow; when you get into gray areas with things like guidelines, you leave those guidelines open to judgment and interpretation, and then we have situations like this where we have unspoken rules to follow. Yes, MrPhil was out of line with his comments, but you cannot expect people to follow rules if they are not designated as such. —StevenDibelius

2007-12-07 03:08:12   Since conversation on the internet can sometimes be taken the wrong way, I'm just going to add that I mean my comments in the most respectful way and don't intend to put you down with them. —StevenDibelius

2007-12-07 18:32:26   Well, on second thought, I felt that maybe I shouldn't create a page without approval from my broker! —MicheleKemnitzer

2007-12-07 18:33:21   On 2007-12-07 18:22:36 DaveMahon writes The thread with BadFish needs to stop NOW. Just walk away. —DaveMahon

Dave—I'm sure you mean well, but some threats are better confronted than ignored. I'm hopeful this all gets resolved peacefully..and badfish's that comments were just that, and nothing more. —MrPhil

2007-12-10 11:09:01   Re: Woody's. dunno'. Woody's used to be a guilty pleasure for me. It is cheesy but we used to go there a lot as we knew some of the staff. It was the place I loved to hate. I am at a loss on how to portray it and stay within a NPoV. —BadFish

2007-12-10 14:14:38   I didn't mean that you didn't understand, but that sometimes new people don't quite understand what a Wiki is. The fact that really everyone is an editor and that the primary purpose is compiling information, not message board type discussions is sometimes a difficult concept for people to grasp. I'm not sure if documenting this will help or just be wasted space though. —RichChiavaroli

2007-12-15 15:13:03   I did not see it, but I will take a look. —StevenDibelius



2008-01-20 11:13:03   Dave - I posted under Merchants Grill because of the previous comment on that business. You can move it where ever you would like. It is two comments rolled into one. —BigPun


2008-02-25 15:03:07   Hey, Dave:

I might be interested in starting up a fundraising run in the next year,
either spring or fall. Anyways, we can talk about this sometime. —JustinSukiennik


2008-04-10 14:20:38   I installed your greasemonkey scripts. They are quite useful. :) —JoannaLicata


2008-05-12 20:37:57   You owe the sysadmin two [WWW]beers. ;-) Apologies for your userpage getting eaten by the migration script; that'll teach me to not kill memcached after dropping the database... -rt —RyanTucker

2008-05-13 19:14:48   It tended to eat people who mucked around too much with groups, yes. :-) I think that was the deciding factor in the "eat" vs. "not eat" in the conversion script. —RyanTucker

2008-05-13 19:28:06   Now that you mention it, I've got a porch, a gorgeous evening, a bottle of gin, and some tonic. What the heck am I doing inside? What the heck are YOU doing inside? Screw you guys, I'm going outside.

Just as soon as I create a memcached stats page— no, I'm going outside. —RyanTucker

2008-05-14 10:46:23   The [WWW]SVN repository has three new CSS files: common, layout, and style. They have a bunch of new things so the CSS we're running ought to be based off of them, but the color scheme didn't match and uploading the [WWW]old RocWiki CSS seems to have taken care of it. What needs to happen is all of the pretty colors and layout stuff from the old RocWiki CSS needs merged into the new Sycamore CSS.

If it helps, I have reason to believe the old RocWiki CSS are based off of [WWW]this batch of CSS files, so diff might come in handy.

CSS is strange voodoo :-) —RyanTucker

2008-05-27 13:17:27   With [WWW]“lever”, the verb form is “to lever” and the concept (noun) is “leverage”. Unfortunately, English abuse by financial pundits has muddied the usage. I can admit “a useful”. My usage likely comes from the way i say it with a softer long “u” rather than a harder “yoo”. But how can you call me on “arguing obtuse grammar” and not Robert, even when he made the first grammatical edits on my original passage? —JohnLam

2008-05-28 01:55:27   Thanks for the conciliation. The whole passage on Tribe no longer reflects current issues and needs updating anyway. —JohnLam


2008-06-03 03:27:32   Dave, can you explain to me why you moved "Water Front Food" to the "Guides" section? Why did you leave "Street Meat" on the front page but removed the very useful summertime addition of "Water Front Food"? Makes no sense to me. I also don't understand why "Optimism"/"Pessimism" belong on the front page but "Local Slang" doesn't? If anything, local slang is more useful than ramblings about why it does or doesn't suck to live here. Granted, the slang page is currently a bit bare and has several offensive entries, but I'd like to grow the article. I'm putting both back until I hear otherwise from you, hope I don't offend! In the future please contact me on my talk page before removing my major edits. I did put some thought into these additions. If we can't come to an agreement on this I'd like to take it to a vote. Thanks, M. —MariahBetz

2008-06-03 15:04:56   Dave, thanks for your responses on my talk page :) I think I'll agree that Local Slang is in an unstable and potentially contentious state right now. Can you recommend any ways to address this? I have been struggling some with the article (although clearly I've been gleeful about some of the harsher entries, eh..) and I'd like to make it good enough to hold on a place in Explore.

I'll also concede the Water Front Food link being removed if Street Meat goes, too. I can't see one being there without the other, as I believe Water Front Food may be more useful from a tourism and community pleasure perspective... —MariahBetz

2008-06-20 23:27:20   I have no particular reason to NOT have a table saw. Is it shiny and dangerous? If so, it sounds like my kind of tool... —RyanTucker

2008-06-21 23:19:02   It wouldn't be a true table saw if it didn't get used as a table ;-) —RyanTucker

2008-06-22 11:21:49   If we do it, I anticipate a decent amount of custom work being required — the target space is rather dimensionally unusual. I don't even think there's enough room for a shower in there. Mostly just looking for a toilet and sink. However, the target space has since been turned into a closet, so I'm thinking the project may well be dead for now. —RyanTucker


2008-07-06 06:19:34   You are welcome for the additions. I am recovering from some surgery on the 1st and had to spend the 4th weekend mostly indoors. —BradMandell

2008-07-09 08:38:07   Dave, RE Antmore issues: It seems RocWiki might attempt a revision of the Welcome Business Owner page to clarify what is in and out of bounds for RocWiki content. RocWiki is best as an Information source, especially of local interest and origin. Maybe some guidelines about Press Release related entries, excessive duplication of detailed material available on the companies website, etc.

2008-07-13 21:05:01   Re Asian Buffet Fact Check - just ate there this evening, brought home the menu and typed in everything directly from it. Sorry about the CAPS, I did not notice - must have hit caps lock instead of Shift. —BradMandell

2008-07-16 01:29:09   As I understand you are the creator of this Wiki, there are a few things that you should be aware of. I have started my own Wiki site. Since there are creative differences, I went my separate ways. I have tried to contact "responsible" admin about the behavior of others on your site, but because I am blocked everywhere, I cannot reach the appropriate people. I want the malicious behavior to stop on my site. I never went nearly as far as the people have gone on this site. They are making lewd comments, defacing my pages, and generally making a mess out of my site. I never actually did that to your site in any way. I never launched guerilla tactics where I was using false IP addresses and signing onto my site. I may have had disagreements with people and basically showing them the walking contradictions that they are and that is about it.

At least one person from your site was not smart enough to use a fake name and he is [name redacted] on my site. I have screen shots of a bunch of things that he posted on my site. Now he represents your wiki page and is a member of your admin staff. Peter along with a few others (who knows could all be him for all I know, but I get a feeling MariahBetz and a few others were in on it) decides to write hate speech and make fun of people's sexuality on a site, that can be construed not only as harassment, but by the RocWiki Admin. Furthermore, it could be interpreted as a hate crime. I have been consulted by my legal advisor. If this activity continues, you and the rest of your community will be prosecuted. I have no qualms spending my time (my friends are pro bono) taking each and every person responsible to court. I have kept screenshots and records of each transgression.

My business partner, who never had anything to do with this, is receiving harassing emails through my wiki site. Dave, I implore you to take the necessary steps to rein in these people or your inaction will cause you to stand with these vandals. I have acted on everything I have done, so don't think this is an idle threat. I don't like the people that are signing up to my site calling me "Anthony wigger" and "antmorelle" and saying I am gay. This is ridiculous. These people are representing this site and you especially. Since you have stayed pretty neutral during these last few bouts, I trust you will make the right decision. You have my email on file. You can contact me there.
Thank you. —AnthonyMorelle

2008-07-16 01:36:10   Let me remind the rest of you that you are messing with a business endeavor. If you in any way want to desecrate my site, I have legal obligations to take anyone to court for interference of that business relationship. This is your only warning. I am also taking steps to report this Wiki to the appropriate authorities. Maybe other established Wikis will frown upon the behavior of admin members and push you out. Based on what some of you have to look forward to in life, this is all you have. I wouldn't push it. —AnthonyMorelle

2008-07-16 17:09:29   I have made backup copies and deleted my messages posted in the Google Group due to sudden spurts of spam to my email address, which I just realized is exposed in the Group. I will post the backup content somewhere?? - I think I may also delete my membership in the Google Group altogether, but I still have the RocWiki addiction page out there and I appear in some "quoted text". —BradMandell

2008-07-22 15:36:54   I don't even know what you did to my tables, but they do look better. :-) Thanks! —RyanTucker

2008-07-22 17:03:04   I believe the answer to your question lies in RachelBlumenthal's comment directly above RxScabin's comment on the Cravings page —AlexanderGartley

2008-07-25 21:40:17   You win today's Made-Me-Dig-Up-The-Dictionary Award for your use of "ameliorate." Congrats! :-) —RyanTucker

2008-07-27 17:58:16   Google Maps provides the facilities to create these user maps, to embed them directly on your webpages, etc. The User Map is also saveable as a KLM file and can be viewed in Google Earth. Since the image retains the Google copyright notice and links to a Google generated and controlled map, there should be no problem. I am currently going through all the Golf courses on RocWiki and adding them to the map. The map entries link back to their relevant RocWiki pages. I will save and upload the KLM file to the Golf page when I have it reasonably complete. —BradMandell


2008-08-02 10:35:14   Thanks for the technical correction Dave (;>}, but the 1000 Goal was Mine and included the images (especially since most of them are ones I actually took just for RocWiki!!! At any rate it was a great run - and mostly in just 1 month!! —BradMandell

2008-08-12 13:52:20   I think the disclaimer is a really great idea and I fully endorse it —PeteB

2008-08-14 11:32:52   I agree it's broken, and it's probably the ' throwing it off. Danged if I know where to fix it, though. [WWW]gmap.js doesn't look like it deals with the address string itself, but I could be wrong. E-mail me the info you got from your magic t00lz and I'll see what I see on this end... —RyanTucker

2008-08-18 22:33:46   I sent you an email FYI.... —PeteB

2008-08-18 22:55:20   No no I'm not saying I need it now but was asking if you'd be interested in doing it —PeteB

2008-08-20 14:00:28   Dave: You have helped me with issues in the past. I was wondering what the 'official' policy is on photos. Just googling a photo is probably not good enough without contacting the author, eh? —EugeneCain

2008-08-21 15:51:07   Thank You Dave for your welcome message. This RocWiki really ROCKS!!! I have been using this to choose my weekend activities. —DeepBhatt

2008-08-23 15:21:34   Hi Dave, NewtonNola here. I saw your comment on my RocWiki. I got hacked. I'm still using the newtonnola yahoo address and changed my password. Do you think I need to ditch that yahoo mail account and start from scratch even though I changed my password? Oh and the crooks got about $600 out of one of my bank accounts but i got it all back! some what of a happy ending. Thanks Dave —NewtonNola

2008-08-24 09:24:41   Hi Dave, So nice of you to respond so fast to me! I'm getting a s*** load of spam, you are correct. I hate to sound dumb but what do you mean by "honey pot" status? I do have a couple of other email accounts that I use for not communicating with my friends. The newtonnola one is my primary though. Thank you :-) —NewtonNola


2008-09-22 15:22:50   Hi Dave could you ADOPT your Mini Flame please {:>] —BradMandell

2008-09-25 07:29:32   Dave, NEVER MIND I FOUND MY OWN ERROR with RyDahl - My Bad ? Thanks. (;>{ —BradMandell


2008-10-07 12:04:56   Hey Dave, sorry to read about your loss. —BradMandell


2008-11-13 23:16:03   I'll withdraw my comment. —PeteB

2008-11-19 11:37:57   Dave, the problem is not with the image itself, but with the revision history of the page - who created it?, when was it created? who edited it? when did they edit it? what part of the page did the photo contributor edit other than the photo? - you would not even know it was a historical page unless you happen to click on the photo and see the dates of its history. Further, the userinfo for the contributors will no longer show their edits to the deleted page. That was my point. —BradMandell


2008-12-08 18:05:06   Thanks for the condolences. I hope to be back to RocWiki and BufWiki after Michelle's Memorial this Sunday. I dove in to try and get BufWiki started and will give them some focus first.
