2008-06-23 13:16:49   Evan, I am trying to use new photos. The old ones are outdated and neither the inside or outside look like that anymore. Why are you insisting on putting these photos back up? I don't understand this. —DavidDeCristoforo

  • Because it's part of the history of Davis... the Wiki isn't a business listing site or anything like that, it's a resource for the community. That includes historical information. In fact old photos from decades back are uploaded now and then to show how things have changed. The reason that I removed the first person is because other people can, will and are encouraged to edit the entry. When they edit it, if it is in first person plural ("We feel", etc), then it makes it look like the business is saying that. And since the wiki content is edited by the entire community, that might not be the case. There's been a casual and informal set of tips for business owners that gives an unofficial introduction to the wiki that you might want to read. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

Here's an example of what I mean. Note the large area of white space, and how the text is a thin narrow trail. 2008-06-24 09:09:06   Ah, I arranged those around because people with smaller monitors can't see anything until they scroll down if there are two huge photos at the top (and on smaller monitors, those are huge). They also "pinch" the text if you have a non-maximized browser. Basically, those particular "move down images" edits were to make the entry more reader friendly to a wider audience. —JabberWokky
