Talk Page

This page used to be where differences in opinions about RocWiki pages were resolved, and notes were left from one contributor to another related to content. However, nowadays, you probably want to try the Mailing List.

2007-03-21 19:23:55   I'm not such a fan of the Stub include on the top, I'd like to stuggest we plug it at the bottom, so it's less in-your-face. —FarMcKon

2007-03-22 21:24:10   Almost all articles on the wiki are stubs... I don't think there's a huge benefit for marking the pages as such. Just go to any random page and it could use some more information just from a little research. —BenMargolis

2007-03-24 12:00:53   Well, Having an 'include stub' is useful, so that people can check the page Stub Pages List if they want to work on a page needing some help. That said, I'm not sure how I feel about the 'stub box'. At the least it gets in the way when viewing pages on small devices (cell phones). —FarMcKon

2007-03-28 09:39:17   Would it be possible to have a deleted page log (or does one already exist and I just can't find it)? There have been a few times when I thought I made a page in the past but it either mysteriously disappeared or I'm just losing my mind, and I'd like to know which... :) —RachelBlumenthal

2007-03-28 11:28:43   If you think a page existed once, you can go to that page and instead of creating a new page, click the Info button. It will show you the revision history, if there is one, including if the page once existed and was deleted. As for a log of deleted pages, I'm not sure. —StevenDibelius

2007-03-28 12:57:00   Interesting, thanks! Looks like I'm crazy after all...the page I thought I made seems to have never existed... —RachelBlumenthal

2007-08-02 09:00:06   What's the etiquette on deleting your own comments? In the most recent revision of ReHouse that's what Jeff did. —JasonOlshefsky

2007-08-02 13:01:38   Personal redaction of comments isn't a big deal. Sometimes our opinions change and our feedback should reflect that. Just don't go editing or deleting the comments of others unless absolutely necessary (gross violations of etiquette, etc). —DaveMahon

2007-08-02 14:23:52   I agree with Dave. —RottenChester

2008-04-21 21:26:34   I'd like to add the following disclaimer to the top bit of the page: Contributors to this site may or may not have an interest in a company, agency, product, service, community or endeavor they are discussing. We do not guarantee the veracity, reliability or completeness of any information provided on our site or in any hyperlink appearing on our site.1 Comments are the personal opinions of their respective authors.DaveMahon

2008-07-13 08:31:52   Some of editors, including myself, keep an eye on Recent Changes and become more "interactively" involved in their contributions. I believe this is a great tradition for collaborative effort. However, interaction among the editors is somewhat cumbersome - they must comment on the Talk page of an active entry, post comments in each other's user page, etc. Currently, multiple editors can be editing a page at the same time. Some wiki sites have a related forum for interactive discussions about editing of entries (vs comments containing content). We have the Google Group, but it is not very interactive. Perhaps a page RocWiki Editing Today could be a place where active editors could post their current planned activity, coordinate work on entries (or related entries) and build a historical record of the growth of RocWiki. Any Thoughts. —BradMandell

2008-07-28 06:00:25   Any objection to adding the sentence The appearance of a company, agency, product, service, community or endeavor on this site does not constitute endorsement of RocWiki. to the disclaimer paragraph at the top of the page? —DaveMahon

2008-08-12 13:43:08   I think that your restaurant reviews should start with the most recent and not with the oldest submitted. —JaneDever

2008-12-05 13:17:47   cannot edit the events page. only last listing shows up. need to make a correction on a listing I posted —JosephFerrara

2009-01-05 08:56:33   I need some help from an experienced Wiki-er. I went into my account at home and went to delete a comment I had made in August after realizing I commented twice on the same restaurant. I'm not sure what I did but now I can't get the site to come up at all- I can get to the front page if I quit out of my browser and then go back. However, when I go to log in or look at recent changes it gives me only a blank screen. Any ideas? I can get into my account with no problem at work, so I am wondering if it's something with the IP address or cookie on my home machine. —ShawnaLusk

2009-01-11 15:35:01   ShawnaLusk: Might be a good idea to try clearing out the cookies... when we moved servers waaaaay back in May, there were a few cases where old cookies caused problems. Should be all set now, but you never know. If that doesn't do it, e-mail me (<rtucker AT gmail DOT com>) with your IP address and I'll see if there's anything interesting in the logs... —RyanTucker

2009-09-01 11:52:24   Is there some way to delete the revision history of personal info? —TinyPliny

2014-04-24 22:10:22   Hey RocWiki - Who do I talk to if another RocWiki user has stolen my writing and used it to post on the Events Calendar? I'd like this event removed. Thx!! —BarbaraEllen

2014-04-24 22:10:56   Oh - and how can I obtain the IP address of the person who posted this? —BarbaraEllen

2014-04-24 23:16:04   What event are you talking about? Where is the original material? Considering its advertising an event would that consistite fair use? The ip is attached to the username and the in changes page for the events. All of this is publicly available. —Damiankumor
