Come in! Make yourself comfortable!
For many of our longtime readers, an explanation of the Daily Bear Dumb (DBD) is unnecessary - it’s been a community-driven feature of CGB as soon as the move to SBNation back in 2008. But for the uninitiated, the DBD was created as a space for the community to talk about, well, whatever the hell they might want to talk about (within our community guidelines, of course). This is a great place to share links, meet new Cal fan friends, and plot our inevitable reconquer of Write For California North.
Because the DBD has always been community-drive, we’ll do all we can to adapt the DBD to the new environment here at W4C. That means we’ll make sure there’s a new DBD up each weekday for as long as this community gets value in having a dedicated space for conversation and/or work avoidance.
Like, perhaps you’d like to use this place to discuss how Princeton students are too dumb to just accept their extraordinary and undeserved good luck to be graced with Marshawn’s presence.
Thank God the typos are coming with us!
OK. Finally settled on a new name
happy 50th bday over the weekend to HeyAlumniGo
Good luck with the new site, y'all!
So, we gonna hit 1k comments today, or what?
OUR CRUMBLING DEMOCRACY
It really is a daily bear dumb!
Couldn't resist jumping into the DBD for old times' sake.
for the longest time I thought DBD stood for "Don't be dumb". TIL it stands for Daily Bear Dumb. Nonetheless, the constant reminder to not be dumb was helpful
what's all this then
Chris Matthews out at MSNBC.
Yay! Thanks guys. Ready to make this my new home.
Got ma season tix GO BEARS!
If you close the page and come back, seems like you lose the info on which comments are new replies :(
Also what's WFC's policy on Wikipedia links for things that definitely need one?
Is this the most comments a DBD has had in years?
Can Substack steal - I mean borrow - the `z` functionality?
Just learned about this, but it sounds like one of my friends from college really supports it, and you all might be interested: https://crowdfund.berkeley.edu/project/18822
Ten years ago a few dozen students came together to take back their food system from corporate interests; they ended up creating the nation's most radical grocery store. We are the Berkeley Student Food Collective: a student group working to provide more accessible, more sustainable, and healthier food to the Berkeley community — while learning how to run a democratic business in the process. We've run our nonprofit, volunteer-run collective across from Lower Sproul entirely by student volunteers for ten years; we want your help making our next decade even better.
We're requesting your support for our Decade 2 fundraising campaign to grow our student-developed work fighting food insecurity, supporting local farmers and vendors, and creating more experiential education opportunities. But your support goes beyond our individual programs and operation. It goes toward keeping an ever-larger part of the food system out of corporate hands and in the democratic commons. It goes toward ensuring that the community served by our grocery store remains in control of it. It helps us secure a food system for people — not profit.
This campaign is dedicated to growing capacity for our core programs. Your contribution will go directly toward: increasing the availability of local produce from farmers otherwise marginalized from the food system and organic growers at up to 50% off for EBT users; funding visionary student-designed programming educating peers about systemic issues in the food system; funding dignified food jobs for students; developing and funding new strategic initiatives; and core operating costs of running our nonprofit organization & storefront.
So - what is the actual abrieviation? W4C or WFC?
Super happy to be here. Really glad the content will continue, as always, love it all. You guys (maybe Rob) should look at potentially getting on the 12PAC podcast. Those guys are always looking to interview beat writers that can give their audience detail on each team. And it could spread the word about W4C.
im so discombobulated
For clarification, is this in addition to or replacing the old CGB/DBD? (Raptors gave me a short summary about this on Sat, but I've missed the whole story)
There is one
Do you think Spazzy and PureSilence will come back now?
Why am I getting emails for every comment reply to me?!? Can we turn that off??
CREATE FILTER list:(<writeforcalifornia.substack.com>) APPLY "Delete It" UPDATE FILTER
Can we get some more color on these pages? This ain't Utah
What if we avoid threading comments? No more replying to comments, you only post new comments, which show up at the top. FREE FORM DBD!!!
I think the new comments showing up at the top will be fine once we get used to it, but how do you navigate to new threaded comments?
Perhaps you want to correct the typo in the first line of the article, as otherwise some stanfurd grad may get excited and repeat that label in the future.
I just found out peanut butter is scarce at a reasonable price in Germany. I find this bizarre.
Regarding the Princeton thing....My observation of many insulated folks is that they don't get Marshawn at all. They don't understand the man behind the hair and terse media interactions.
why does the comment order rearrange every time I open the dbd?
Will anyone be able to put up a DBD or does one of the "writers" have to set it up every morning?
...and today I have a cold. For the first time in about 7 years, I have a cold. Sheesh.
Interesting, it looks like new threads show up at the beginning.
Is this where we make venn diagram jokes?
