Well done on setting up![edit source]
Nice work, Tim, on getting your account set-up and introducing yourself! Some official welcome to Wikiversity below - and a random mascot. Let me know if I can do anything. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 02:01, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Formatting - Headings[edit source]
Hi Tim, I received your wiki-email re help with formatting. More than happy to work with you on this. Will try to go one step at a time :). So Lesson 1, is on headings. Let's try first to add "Level 2" headings throughout the portfolio. This will automatically also lead a table of contents being displayed. We tend to skip "Level 1" headings, so "Level 2" means your top-level. We can make anything a level 2 heading by adding two equals signs (==) before and after a heading. I will do some for you, then you can do the rest. I'll keep an eye out, then we can tackle the next step - or feel free to suggest what you want to do next. So, just to be clear:
- Go to your user page
- Click edit
- Add ==blah blah (i.e., the heading description)==
- Save the page
- Since you've already got a clear, hierarchical structure, we can proceed also with adding "Level 3" headings - these will have three equals signs ==. I will add some to the first couple of sections, then you can apply the rest. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 11:13, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
Initial content feedback[edit source]
I'll add some more on this, but my first impression is that the content is well organised and "chunked", making it quite readable and clear that you're engaged with the unit structure, etc. and exhibiting with independent thinking and depth. I will provide some more specific and detailed feedback, but just wanted to let you know that this seems to be on the "right" track. So, let's tidy up the formatting, and then it will help us to be able to refer to specific parts, etc. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 11:11, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
- Well done with the headings!
- Next we might tackle bullet-points. Any new line preceded by an asterisk (*) will be bulleted.
- Double asterisk (**) will create a sub-bullet-point.
- Alternatively you can the same principles for numbered lists (using #, ##, etc.)
- FYI, I've demonstrated this at User:Tim Malysiak#Norman Triplett. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 00:25, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Soccer culture[edit source]
Your thoughts on the World Cup 2006 reminded me of Desmond Morris' (1981) book, The Soccer Tribe. Basically is discusses (with lots of pictures) soccer as a modern ritual which has replaced "the hunt". It's out of print, but you can find some information on the web, e.g., . -- Jtneill - Talk - c 00:30, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Hi Tim, at a quick glance, this is looking excellent - breadth and depth - and well-organised. You could add wiki bullet-points - these start each point with an asterisk (*); or in some cases, a numbered list might be appropriate - these start each point with a hash (#). -- Jtneill - Talk - c 00:22, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
E-portfolio Feedback for Tim Malysiak[edit source]
Hi Tim Malysiak,
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.
Clearly you've been engaged in both lecture/reading topics and tutorials. Environmental psychology lecture was missing and I think maybe the first tutorial. (HD)
Overall, material is covered in reasonable depth. Some sections contain excellent depth (e.g., the communication tutorial). Some sections could be more closely connected to social psychology (e.g., the football section). Additional reading of Hugh Mackay was an example of excellent depth/insight involving additional reading. (DI)
P.S. If you are dissatisfied with the marking and feedback, please see the marking dispute process.
