Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2018/Voluntary missing person motivation
This is a very interesting topic choice and I look forward to reading the finished product. The overview is great - it really had me intrigued! From the information you have provided, I would recommend one minor change. In terms of your theory, I think it would be really interesting to find a theory regarding why people choose escape/go missing over other means (i.e. seeking refuge, seeking professional help like psychologists/police etc). Also maybe include a statistic on mental health disorders and missing persons like schizophrenics who go missing due to hallucinations/voices telling them to do so. That would be very interesting. Great job.--BB7897 (discuss • contribs) 03:47, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
Was just reading over this topic, and it is seriously so interesting! I'm shocked by the huge statistic of voluntary missing persons apposed to unintentional. You're doing a great job! :) Not sure if this is helpful, but when I was reading the part about parent-child relationships attachment theory came to mind. I honestly am not sure if this is relevant at all but might be something to look into to see if attachment style from birth affects the risk of going voluntarily missing. --Emily Ewart (discuss • contribs) 01:21, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi! This is a really interesting topic! Just one thing I found, James said that we don't need to provide references for our figures as they have the reference info embedded in them. So I've just bolded them (figure 1,2,5) so you can find them easier :) It's looking really great! --MaddieCarleton (discuss • contribs) 21:59, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi there, Very interesting article. I really enjoyed it and it shows that you have put a lot of effort into researching the topic. One thing I noticed is that the link in your Warning before the quiz is dead and doesn't work. Might be worth looking into that. All the best! --Kunal Kumar - University of Canberra (discuss • contribs) 23:31, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
This topic is something that I have little knowledge of, but I think a lot of people would be interested in. The page has been developed very well so far. However, I did notice that your references are not exactly APA. Such that, the journals are not in italics. This resource was posted by the unit convenor and may be of help with this issue https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/05/Cheatsheet-en.pdf I hope this is helpful. I cannot wait to read the finsih product of this page and I know I will learn a lot. TaylorMal (discuss • contribs) 10:41, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi Abbey, I am very pleased to see that you have taken on board my first comment from the 27th of August and applied my feedback to create an 'other reasons/circumstances for going missing' section. The chapter is written to a very high standard and I can see that you have done a lot of research. Well done. --BB7897 (discuss • contribs) 22:30, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi there, I'm loving your topic, it's so interesting! I have one recommendation for you, just because of the nature of this assignment and the fact that anyone from anywhere can access your page, I recommend broadening the scope of the prevalence section to maybe include more statistics from around the world and Australia, instead of focusing on just the ACT! This may give you room for comparison and would be interesting to see the differences. Good luck and good work :) --U3160212 (discuss • contribs) 04:01, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure if you've finished the demographics section but I would add a title to the table to help clarify what the figures represent. Also wondering if you need the content above as well as the table as it seems like the info is duplicated. Hope this helps U3037801 (discuss • contribs) 08:46, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Title, sub-title, TOC
i think your topic is really interesting and you have laid out your structure really well. its easy to follow and is attention grabbing. one suggestions is to do a small paragraph after your demographics about why you think they are similar or dissimilar and what culture or social reasons there might be for these differences. Hope this helps xx Joog 17 (discuss • contribs) 12:39, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
I recommend moving citations from the headings into the text in the section - this will make the heading structure and table of contents easier to read. Also note that headings should be in lower case (per Wikiversity convention). -- Jtneill - Talk - c 10:19, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
|FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings (or sentence casing). For example, use:|
