University Place Hotel - questions

 

Parking at University Place Hotel

It costs $10/day to park in the hotel parking lot. They also have hourly rates. Street parking is limited and usually cost $1/hour. In addition, there is another parking lot on SW 4th/SW College--unsure of cost.

Communication with conference staff

  • Setup - As of 2/16, Chairs will be set up in one big room as a circle. A couple of other rooms will be setup for open space. Would like 200 chairs (no setup required) in Columbia Falls Ballroom. Also want Pyramid Lake and Trillium Lake. Wifi is available for all but we may have to fill out a form with each person's name for access (9/11 security stuff)--we'll get more info. Not sure if anyone has contacted Free Geek) for public computers and power strips. Other possible rooms: Coos Bay, Crater Lake, or Astoria downstairs (priority is a projector, or if there is none, whichever's biggest)
  • Lodging - Hard to say now. Do we need to block some to get the space? Or is it about getting a discount, or just guaranteeing that the rooms will be available? Is there a cost to blocking them if they don't get taken? Out of the blue we could say hold 5 double rooms and 5 single rooms. (There will be a bunch of people from out of town, but many of them are likely stay with friends, etc.)
  • Food - As of 2/16, individuals can bring in their own food and drinks but RCC cannot bring them in and provide them to attendees. Can we decide on that later? We don't have sponsors/budget yet, but we'll almost certainly want some breakfasts and/or lunches - what are the options for that?
  • Schedule - We need access from Thursday evening through Sunday 3pm.


Mark, what were the answers to these questions?

    • You can open and close cards in place. Just click on the

      icon.
    • Use the menu above an edit box to make text bold, italics, bullet points; create headers (paragraph, Heading 1, Heading 2); etc.
    • All links require double brackets around them.
    • Named links require a vertical bar (|) between the link and the name.
    • Most HTML in normal cards will get stripped. To edit it, click on the HTML button at the right edge of the editing toolbar. Any HTML can be added using HTML cards (you'll have to be signed in to create/edit them).

    To learn more see the Wagn documentation. Common curiousities:

    If you have questions about using this wiki, you might reach someone live on Internet Relay Chat, or you can contact the Wagn guys by various means, or just ask your question here and someone will answer it shortly:


    Q: How do you communicate on a wiki like this - is there a space like MediaWiki's talk page?

    A: This is typically done in Wagn by including a +discussion card — fandom is an example here; for an explanation, see Common Wagn patterns. Of course you can also leave comments on the card itself, old-school wiki style.


    Q: How can I edit the Menu and Help cards?

    A: You can double-click in any card to edit it.


    Q: Is there notification for +discussion cards?

    A: Alas, not yet. It is high on our list.


    Q: How can I upload a pdf?

    A: Create a New Card (there's a link at the very top of every page), and set it's card type to File. Then click on the Browse... button to upload the pdf.


    Q: How do I edit a previous version to achieve a page revert? --MarkDilley

    A: In the Changes tab of every card you can go through different versions and click on Save as current when you find the version you want to revert to.


    Q: I'm an old member, what happened to my name and password?

    A: If you try to sign in, you'll see an interface to reset your password if you've forgotten it. If you don't remember what email address you used, leave a note here and we'll try to help.


    Q: How do I change my password?

    A: In the Options tab on your home card.


    Q: On the main page, after clicking "edit" I had to scroll way down (about 10 screens of blank) to find the "save" and "cancel" buttons. --PeteForsyth

    A: Known bug, but we hadn't ticketed it yet; thanks!


    Q: How do you sort a list alphabetically when some items are links and some are not? (The brackets count as a different character.) --Kristin Webb-Tomson

    A: Manually — in other words ignore the brackets, and copy & paste names to where they should go.


    What do you mean manually?
    you may use any programming language, and any sorting algorithm, with a if-then-else instruction!
