Indeed, I agree with you regarding improper placement of such notes. Yet, let's go one step further and suggest that such humor should find a place for posting in its own Wikipedia article.

A (somewhat belated) thanks
Sorry for being a bit late to say this, but on behalf of the group I was working with and my own, thank you very much for your suggestions and input on the changes to the Uncertainty Reduction Theory article. It has been extremely helpful to us all. Hope all's well and good luck in whatever endeavors you have ahead. --RStoakes (talk) 22:20, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
Re BSRA wiki
Thanks for all your help Martin, there is one thing you can help me with - on the BSRA wiki you've helped with it now links me (James Brown) to the dead soul/R&B singer. Can we get this removed please? Many Thanks Coloneldr (talk) 08:49, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
- @Coloneldr: Since you don't seem to have a Wikipedia biography, I've removed the link from that text by deleting the brackets around the name. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 10:53, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the help

A barnstar for you!
|The Surreal Barnstar|
|Thank you so very much for the many interactions with our students on the Psychology of Internet Behaviour module at the University of Hull's Scarborough Campus. Many of them can clearly see that their experience with learning how to edit Wikipedia has been greatly enhanced through your input. -- ToniSant (talk) 16:03, 26 March 2014 (UTC)|
- Thanks User:ToniSant, User:Natbrock, User:Rosiesievers20, User:RStoakes and User:Archiedale1204. Pleasure working with you on these interesting articles. Just wish I'd had the time to interact more. MartinPoulter (talk) 16:40, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi MartinPoulter, I would request you to have a look at my submission here for wikimania 2014. Please feel free to give your suggestions, if any. --arunbandana 16:44, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Books & Bytes - Issue 5
Education Program technical update, April 2014
Since the last update, development of the editor campaigns project has been continuing, and it's almost at the point that it will be useful to users running edit-a-thons and other non-course outreach events. (If you are planning such an event soon and would like to beta test it for tracking the contributions of newcomers, get it touch.) In the meantime, we've made a few small improvements and bug fixes to the Education Program extension:
- Default course end date
The default end date for courses is now approximately six months in the future, instead of immediately. This will prevent the common problem where a user creates a new course page but does change the default dates, resulting in a course that is immediately considered "ended" and thus cannot be enrolled in.
- Notifications when you get added to a course
Whenever a user gets added to a course by someone else, they will now receive a Notification.
- Disabling individual student profiles
The student profile special page (Special:Student/Username, not to be confused with Special:Students) is a page that lists the courses a student editor is enrolled in, and is also supposed to list the articles that user is working on. However, the list of articles can include incorrect data in cases where an instructor or volunteer assigned the articles to the student editor. These profiles are being removed from the extension altogether. This change should go into effect Thursday, May 1. (Logs are still available to find out which courses a user is enrolled in.)
- Article edit notifications for students coming soon
A nearly complete patch from Facebook Open Academy student Jeff Lloyd will add a new type of Notification: students will be alerted to edits made by others to the article(s) they are assigned (as well as the corresponding talk pages). Expect to see this feature within the next several weeks.
- Duplicate courses and API deletion
Bugs in the course page creation process (now fixed) led in some cases to duplicate listings for the same course at Special:Courses. This happens when the same course page had two (or more) different course ID numbers. It is possible to clean up such duplicate entries using by making calls to the API. I've documented this process and written a Python script for it.
New student assignment issue with flexibility (personality)
There is a new student assignment issue, a student is intending to work on a stub - flexibility (personality). However I don't think anybody realized (including the creator of flexibility (personality) that a closely related article cognitive flexibility, which is at a high standard, already existed. There is no point in doing this assignment just for the sake of it. This is more your area of expertise than mine and I see that you have previously communicated with this group. See Talk:Flexibility (personality). I have also commented at User talk:Greta Munger and User talk:Margaret Cookson.--Penbat (talk) 08:29, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
I have seen you have been involved in the edits to the page regarding the Uncertainty reduction theory and would like your advice with including conceptual models to work with the text to give users a better understanding on the theory. I have done two different diagrams to show different aspects of the theory.
I have done a version of the conceptual model by Heath & Bryant (1999) which displays the process of communication (entry, personal, exit). The other table shows the types of strategies implemented within the theory for communication.
Can any of these be used to aid the article? I'm also looking at copyright protocols for the Heath & Bryant (1999) image as I wouldn't want that to affect this. Any advice would be highly appreciated!

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed
Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.
It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitzgmail.com. Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Help reviewing psychology handout for student editors?
Hi Martin! Johnbod suggested I reach out to you for feedback on a handout I'm working on for student editors in the US/Canada program who are working on psychology articles. My draft is here, and I'd love any feedback: User:LiAnna (Wiki Ed)/Psychology handout. Any chance you have some time to review it in the next week? On an unrelated note, I hope to see you at Wikimania again this year! --LiAnna (Wiki Ed) (talk) 04:27, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
- Hi LiAnna. Sorry I missed you at the education weekend- I heard great things about it from those who went. I will definitely be at Wikimania and the pre-conference workshop, but at the moment I'm overloaded with things to do, and it's a queue that's ever growing, so apologies for slow replies. Help for psychology students is a topic I'm very interested in, but I need to get other things out of the way. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 10:56, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Question about File:Klayman Ha1.svg
I am translating the confirmation bias article into Thai, and have a question about the Venn diagram. The middle label "Positive test:Decisive Falsification" confuses me. It seems to me that "Negative test:Decisive Falsification" would make more sense because of two reasons. Firstly, since the subject is testing outside their hypothesis, then they are looking to falsify their theory - isn't this a negative test? Secondly, this Venn diagram seems to be the depiction of the original Wason's test, in which Clayman & Ha are saying (implying?) that it would be more fruitful to use a negative test to falsify the hypothesis.
- @Tikmok: Firstly, thank you for translating the article. You are absolutely right about the diagram. I, several reviewers and countless readers have all missed this error and you're the first to point it out. When I get around to it, I will replace the SVG file. Thanks again, MartinPoulter (talk) 10:54, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
- Looking again, the error was not there when the file was reviewed, and was only recently introduced when another user tidied up the file. My faith in the close reading of Wikipedia reviewers is restored! ;) I've uploaded a corrected version. MartinPoulter (talk) 11:03, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
