- I recently discovered by formatting the references with the addition of & it complies with APA formatting, see example from your reference list: Elangovan, A., & Shapiro, D. (1998).

- Thanks for that. I was pretty lazy copying my references over :) TristanMM (discuss • contribs) 08:52, 6 September 2016 (UTC)*
Hi, I really enjoyed reading your chapter, very interesting!! I hope you don't mind, I have fixed some grammatical errors (mostly hyphens) in your chapter. I also found this image of the betrayal of christ on wiki commons if your interested in using it for your chapter; https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/18/Gospel_of_Luke_Chapter_22-26_%28Bible_Illustrations_by_Sweet_Media%29.jpg
Thank you for taking the time and going through my article! I really appreciate the feedback and suggested changes. I'm looking forward to reading yours! TristanMM (discuss • contribs) 09:18, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
edited your tip boxes
I was reading your chapter and loved the green boxes that were labelled tips, although they seemed more like fun facts than tips. I.e., are you saying oxytocin nasal spray is a good tool for biological warfare haha? Anyway, I changed the Tip to Fun Facts, as it seems to fit better. I also edited the box in the reducing betrayal section. I hope you like it, but if you dont you can always change it.
Thanks for that and for taking the time to read through. I updated the oxytocin fun fact slightly, since it plays a vital role but it can also be artificially changed too. TristanMM (discuss • contribs) 06:03, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Slightly edited and read through
Hey, great informative chapter. I had a read through and made some minor sentence changes. I really like the fun facts you have throughout as well. Just one thing though - I think it would be great if you have some picture throughout your chapter to break it up a bit and add some good visual content!!
What an interesting topic! I only just started reading but it's really cool how you include a section on motivating people to betray trust! I just have one suggestion; your title "What is trust, betrayal and motivation?" I think the grammatically correct way is "What are trust, betrayal and motivation?" but that sounds really weird! Maybe you could say something like "Definitions: Trust, Betrayal and Motivation' or 'Defining Trust, Betrayal and Motivation'?
My first impression is that you could do to add some images or coloured topic boxes to break it up a bit, as it is a little hard on the eyes to see a wall of text. I do like how you link to other articles within the text though!
I'm not sure if this is intentional, but when you talk about accidental betrayal you say 'the betrayal was not intentional and can be characterised as errors.' Do you mean 'as an error'? I didn't change anything in the text because I wasn't sure if it was deliberate. You also need to put a citation after that definition, which I have done (and logged clearly if you want to undo it).
I also think that when you refer to the Dark Cognitive Triad you could do to reword that section a little. Machiavellianism sounds a little out of back as all the others have the correct ending. Machiavellianistic?? Or 'intentional betrayal could be caused by facets of the Dark Cognitive Triad (narcissism, machiavellianism, and psychopathology).'
I have also added asterisks where there is a missing reference, but I would check throughout just in case I have missed some.
Otherwise, very interesting!
Thanks Cora. They're all really good suggestions. I've been putting off working on my article until this weekend to spend time reading others, otherwise I'd just be selfish and that wouldn't happen. I will also double check the references too, especially my wording in subsequent sentences following a citation to make sure I'm not passing off their ideas as mine. Thanks again TristanMM (discuss • contribs) 09:46, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Over word limit
Hey I was reading through your chapter and did a quick word count, noticing you're about 500 words over the limit (4400, or 4000 +10%); although you are probably already aware of this. One way to remedy this would be to consolidate a few paragraphs from the biological and cognitive mechanism sections. Alternatively, you could remove the manipulating betrayal section, as finishing on ways to prevent betrayal is a nice and round way to finish your chapter.
Hi, sorry my feedback is reaching you after the due date. I have an extension and am a bit slow catching up. I made a couple of really minor grammatical changes, but resisted doing anything to sentence structure as you have already submitted your chapter. There are a few sentences that could do with breaking up, or tend to repeat the same words. I often find it helps to read my work back to myself aloud. I find I pick up more grammar errors that way. Since your sentence structure in your multimedia presentation sounds great, I think your written work would really benefit from that approach?? Just a thought? I also really liked your 'fun facts' sections. They helped to bring the reader back to the topic of the chapter - very grounding. Good luck! --U944295 (discuss • contribs) 12:42, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
