Hi Lauten, I am Percy. Nice to meet you. I love the beach, swimming, fishing, and I am currently doing some research at Wikiversity on oceanography. I am also learning to play piano. What do you like? Can I be your mascot?

Re:Weekend Benders[edit]

Who knows, you may be interested in this category ? The last time I blacked out by alcohol is a few years back - was at university. Since then I did not touch alcohol anymore :-) ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 19:49, 5 August 2008 (UTC)


Hi Lauten. A quick wiki tip for you: See User talk:Tim Malysiak#Formatting - Headings for some guidelines on a way to make even better headings on your page. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 04:46, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi Lauten - FYI, I just added headings to your page - check them out; hope they help. Your e-portfolio is really coming along. Let me know if I can do anything else. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 12:20, 30 October 2008 (UTC)


Hi Lauten. I see you've posted a draft essay!? Good on you Smiley.svg Are you thinking of submitting as a Wikiversity essay (which is fine) or as a word processed document? Depending on which way you want to go, I can then tailor some feedback/suggestions. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 04:05, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Paragraphs off the page[edit]

Hi Lauten, I t think that is probably happening when a paragraph starts with spaces. So edit and remove any blank spaces at the start of those paragraphs, and it should work. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 05:48, 28 October 2008 (UTC)


Hi Lauten, unfortunately I suspect there are copyright restrictions on the images you're uploading. A copyright license needs to be declared for each image and only those who open, free-to-use licensed can be uploaded. If you hold the copyright, this is OK, you can release it (but need to indicate, e.g., public domain). Otherwise, the copyright holder needs to have released the image under an open-license, or have given permission. So, this makes most images on the web not legally uploadable. The good news, however, is that you can find and use images from commons:, e.g., see commons:Category:Social psychology. Most people do something like what you've done early on, unless it gets explained. So, I'll go through and delete the images, but feel free to re-upload if there are any you think that are appropriate; otherwise try replacing with an equivalent from commons:. Sorry, about the hassle, but that's how the world of images and copyright works and Wikiversity respects this. Sincerely, James. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 11:53, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Women today[edit]

Hey Lauten, I was just reading your discussion of women in workplaces and how they've felt or how its changed. Obviously i haven't been in the work force long but i thought i'd try and give you another perspective. I too have worked in the dental field and although i've never had any serious issues being an assistant i was subjected to some rather chauvantistic comments from male dentists who acted like they where god-like. Unfortunately i think it seems to be a problem in that particular field because my experience in other work places has been vastly different. Although gender equality still exists i think we are incredibly lucky in this country. There are avenues of action that can be taken if women feel threatened in the work force. In fact in one instance i complained to the head dentist about one of the associates and he was subsequently asked to leave. The other side of the coin is that i've actually witnessed many men being "teased" in workplaces and i think any complaint by them may have been taken less seriously.

E-portfolio Feedback for Lauten[edit]

Hi Lauten,

Thanks for participating in the social psychology unit. I have read your e-portfolio and have provided some feedback below. The marks will put be posted on WebCT 24 or 25 November. I will email the discussion list when they are available. Feel free to let me know if you have any comments, concerns, questions. I also welcome your feedback here.


Well done, this e-portfolio shows that you got stuck into this unit's material and topics. Very little about tutorials, but otherwise you've considered a sufficient range of the topics and material. (P)


The key feature of this e-portfolio is the depth of insight, creativity (e.g., use of images), preparedness to engage (you prompted I think as many comments as anyone!), honest self-reflection. Whilst there is not necessarily a lot directly about the topics, this e-portfolio does provide clear evidence of considerable thinking about social psychology and its relevance/application to your own experiences. (P-CR)


Thanks for your final wrap-up comments and patience/preparedness to see this through; your final reflections about Blogger vs. Wikiversity were particularly useful. You seem to achieve some notable 'perspective' on what you've learnt from participating in these experiments with teaching social psych. Well done. Best wishes.


Sincerely, James Neill - talk - email
