Wiki Community/2000 Pages Party


2000+ Pages Party

The Rochester Wiki has reached 2,000+ pages. We should celebrate.

Date: Saturday, April 22 2006

Place: The Keg (in the German House), in the South Wedge

5:00 to 7:00 : People interested in the Lead Contributors idea, come sometime in that time range to talk about what we can do to grow and expand the wiki, and make it better.

7:00 to ??? : People interested in hanging out, chatting, and causing a ruckus (or several rucki? or is that Ruckodes? ) and just having a good time.


The 2000 pages party was pretty sweet. Around 10-11 people wandered in, or where there for a while. See Lead Contributors for some of the things we talked about. I was expecting to spend the evening drinking alone, so as far as I'm concerned, it's a smashing success. -FarMcKon

2006-04-14 21:24:11   Peter, it might be good to also send an e-mail off to Do you know if there is anyplace closer to the city center that? Maybe we could move it to the Spy Bar? What do other people think? —FarMcKon

2006-04-18 05:02:37   With sentiments for keeping the venue closer to city center or even the South Wedge, i know Boulder Coffee Co. has wheelchair accessibility and great ambiance for both a meeting and hanging out. See their [WWW]calendar. Riffs Wine & Piano Bar in the East End would also work, and serves alcohol for those desperately in need, or at least, in order to party. —JohnLam

2006-04-18 16:50:23   MacGregor's on Gregory is wheelchair-accessible, according to the person on the phone. How about there? BTW - John, I would classify my need as chronic, not desperate. —RottenChester

2006-04-18 20:39:31   I just had another pressing engagement arise but I'll be interested to hear any ideas generated by the party —PeteB

2006-04-19 14:25:25   OK. So plans arn't changing, and we will make sure the next event is more accessable. —FarMcKon

2006-04-19 20:48:16   For privacy, readability, and bandwidth, please don't leave everyone in the CC field of the next accouncement. —ScottVentura

2006-04-20 14:37:27   Scott, yeah, Sorry about that. I know. I realized what I did about 10 seconds too late, and now I've received about 20 messages as punishment. (only about 1/3 of the people I e-mail were CC'd, the rest were BCC'd) I've never needed to CC'd more than 3 people in my life, so (in my opinion) I should get a gimme on this one. I also hit G-mail's sending limit, which is pretty amazing. —FarMcKon

2006-04-20 22:48:50   congrats on the 2000 pages! —MichelleAccurso
