Like Wikipedia?

Then you might like this: Someone started a Humbolpedia, supposedly a Wikipedia but just dealing with Humboldt County.

Not much there yet. But, it's just like Wikipedia and takes submissions from everybody so have at it. When I get some time, I'll submit something. Let's just hope the nutcases in the Humboldt blogosphere don't screw it up.

Kudos to Bob Morse and Humguide for the heads up on this new site.

If that's your hope, then you better not submit anything, Fred.

Geez. Do I have to explain everything to you?

"Hey Fred, Y'know you should probably not go the library at 3:00 AM On Arts Alive night. What are you doing down there?? Youre pickup is easy to spot, and I can pick up a John pretty easy. Is your wife OK with this????"

"I think you're confusing Fred with Hank Sims, we all know what a creature of the night he is."


Fred, what kind of pickup do you drive?

A Ford F-150.

Is it white? I often see a white Ford pickup at the Tip Top when I go there. Ever enjoyed a private session with those cute little HSU co-eds who dance there?

wow! you guys really are jerks! This is a fine idea, and why can't you use your little brain to say something that shows some intellect?...maybe the answer is a non starter...

Humboldtpedia won't disclose its owners, therefore it is not trustworthy. At least with Wikipedia the rules are clear, the rulers are known and appeals are possible. With this other pedia, how can we trust them when we don't know their names?

"Humboldtpedia won't disclose its owners, therefore it is not trustworthy.".

This, from an Anon? Whatever.

Nope, it's not white.

You people should just lay off Fred. What he does on his own time is nobody's business but his own.

Hey what's wrong with people wanting to know more about Fred? If he's going to make himself a public person with this blog, then people are going to want to know more about him.

"Nope, it's not white."

You see? He's willing to tell people about himself. He likes the attention. That's why he has this blog.

So what color IS your pickup, Fred?

hi fred. long time no blog.
I am an editor of The Plazoid and theplazoid.blogspot.com .

I am looking at humblepedia, and it looks like something that maybe even a fan of The Plazoid had a hand in...did you notice that the Jones v Los Angeles decision was right on the main page? And under "local blogs," theplazoid.blogspot.com is the ONLY one listed!

I have no idea who did this, and as far as i know, nobody that i know had anything to do with it, so i am surprised, and wondering. I find it hard to believe that theplazoid blog is the only humboldt blog that the creator(s) of humblepedia could find. If i was making humblepedia, I would of course have included your blog and Cpt. Buhne at least. Maybe you can just add your link right to the list?

Anyhow, thanks for the heads up - what a surprise!

But I had another reason for posting on your blog, and that is that somebody (or something) is posting using the id "plazoid" and has made a blogspot meant to mock The Plazoid blogspot. So I just wanted to let you know that it is not me, and hey, why don't you come on over to The Plazoid blog and toss your two cents in somoe time.

One more thing: about "wikipedia." There used to be an entry for "The Plazoid" on wikipedia, but someone complained, and it got taken down! check out the story at http://theplazoid.blogspot.com/2006/10/plazoid-censored-from-wikipedia.html
The post includes a version of the deleted entry that I found at a mirror site.

As for the "nutcases in the Humblodt blogosphere" screwing it up, it's only a matter of time...

Gee. I wonder how long till the site shows a blatenmt political agenda? Wikipedia does a relatively good job of being unbiased but how will this Humboldtpedia treat subjects like Rob Arkley? Salzman? Gallegos? HSU? Nick Bravo? Etc....?

I kind of figured that and mentioned such in a thread on Eric's blog a while back.

I'd suggest making mention of it on your blog and perhaps include some examples of the phony posts. That would give people an idea of which comments are the phony ones.

Im sorry but Nick Bravo is not a major subject in Humboldt County. Sorry Nick, I know you like to throw your name in with the big boys, but youre just not electable, nor likeable.

Hello I am the founder of Humbolpedia.com

I have no political agenda, I am just a college kid who thought it would be cool if we had info like the Davis Wiki. ie. cool trees, nice beaches, ice cream flavors, good coffee shops.

After reading the posts a little further I would like to add that it is very important to me that Humbolpedia stay completely unbiased in anyway.

It should stay a tool for helping. If anyone finds that it is leaning one way or the other, you are all free to edit to your liking. Thats the power of Wiki's.

I hope you all have fun at the site, thats what it's all about anyway.
