Hi! This is a super interesting topic, I love the idea of polyamory and I think you've decided to research great ideas and concepts. I found a super cute video that you might be able to externally link that gives a really basic explanation of compersion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njKafVtQ1v8U3189449 (discuss • contribs) 09:25, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
The topic development has been reviewed according to the marking criteria. Written feedback is provided below, plus there is a general feedback page. Please also check the chapter's page history to check for editing changes made whilst reviewing the chapter plan. Responses to this feedback can be made by starting a new section below and/or contacting the reviewer. Topic development marks are available via UCLearn. Note that marks are based on what was available before the due date, whereas the comments may also be based on all material available at time of providing this feedback.
Overly complicated 3-level structure - consider simplifying to a 2-level structure.
Maybe rethink the wording for the top level of heading - it should be possible to just read these headings and get a reasonably good idea about what is in the chapter - the headings could be more informative.
Perhaps consider - what are the similarities and differences between compersion and jealousy/envy?
Aim for 3 to 6 top-level headings between the Overview and Conclusion, with up to a similar number of sub-headings for large sections.
Avoid having sections with 1 sub-heading - use 0 or 2+ sub-headings.
a description of the problem and what will be covered
an example or case study
Use peer-reviewed sources. Other material could be in external links.
Avoid providing too much background information (e.g., about emotion). Briefly summarise general concepts and provide internal wiki links to other book chapters and/or Wikipedia pages for further information. Then focus most of the content of this chapter on directly answering the core question(s) posed by the chapter sub-title.
Interesting question about whether compersion can be learned - will draw on theory and research.
Include in-text interwiki links for the first mention of key terms to relevant Wikipedia articles and/or to other relevant book chapters.
@U3202026: Great to see this resource developing. Some suggestions:
The main feedback is to keep developing the sections which directly address the sub-title question and eep other sections minimal or even remove if they are not directly addressing the question.
I copyedited the Overview - might give some ideas for tweaks elsewhere (e.g., use active rather than passive expression)
Consider moving the first case study to the beginning of its section. Consider breaking the case study into two parts - e.g., perhaps initially a jealous scenario that later develops to become less jealous, with greater compersion
The theoretical background about emotion is really only useful to the extent that it is subsequently applied to discussion about compersion - e.g,. is compersion natural or learned? is it biological or cognitive? etc.
If there is a lack of info about developing compersion (likely), then provide critical comment about what is not known - what would be interested to know, that perhaps we know about other emotions, but don't yet know about compersion etc.
APA style for citations - use "and" in main text and "&" in parentheses
Refer to each figure at least once in the main text
Quiz questions - consider splitting up so that each question appears at the end of the corresponding section
Provide in-text wiki links to related book chapters e.g., for jealousy, polyamory etc. Those links are in see also, which is great, but where relevant also include as in-text links.
check and correct capitalisation
dois should be active hyperlinks

Overall, this chapter provides a basic overview of relevant research.
When describing important research findings, consider including a bit more detail about the methodology and indicating the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
Greater emphasis on major reviews and/or meta-analyses would be helpful.
"People" is often a better term than "individuals"; similarly "participants" is preferred to "subjects".
The chapter is well structured, with major sections using sub-sections.
Sections which include sub-sections should also include an introductory paragraph (which doesn't need a separate heading) before branching into the sub-headings.
Format bullet-points and numbered lists, per Tutorial 1.
Good use of embedded in-text interwiki links to Wikipedia articles. Adding more interwiki links for the first mention of key words and technical concepts would make the text more interactive. See example.
No use of embedded in-text links to related book chapters. Embedding in-text links to related book chapters helps to integrate this chapter into the broader book project.
Abbreviations (such as e.g., i.e.., etc.) should only be used inside parentheses.
Numbers under 10 should be written in words (e.g., five); numbers 10 and over should be written in numerals (e.g., 10).
Use double (not single) quotation marks "to introduce a word or phrase used as an ironic comment, as slang, or as an invented or coined expression; use quotation marks only for the first occurrence of the word or phrase, not for subsequent occurrences" (APA 7th ed., 2020, p. 159).
Direct quotes need page numbers.
Citations are not in full APA style. For example:
Multiple citations in parentheses should be listed in alphabetical order by first author surname.
If there are three or more authors, cite the first author followed by et al., then year. For example, either:
