Requested move of "Carl Jung"[edit]

Greetings! I have recently relisted a requested move discussion at Talk:Carl Jung#Requested move 14 November 2016, regarding a page relating to this WikiProject. Discussion and opinions are invited. Thanks,  Paine  u/c 01:34, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Alternate title for Michel Foucault's Surveiller et punir[edit]

At Talk:Discipline_and_Punish#Crime_and_Punishment_.3F, I have sought opinions regarding possible alternate translations for the title of Michel Foucault's Surveiller et punir. I encountered someone who felt it was known as Crime and Punishment rather than Discipline and Punish. Should we have a redirect at Crime and Punishment? Please comment there if you have an opinion on this issue.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 16:46, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Psychology Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 18:07, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

WikiJournal of Medicine promotion[edit]

WikiJournal of Medicine logo.svg

The WikiJournal of Medicine is a free, peer reviewed academic journal which aims to provide a new mechanism for ensuring the accuracy of Wikipedia's biomedical content. We started it as a way of bridging the Wikipedia-academic gap.[1] It is also part of a WikiJournal User Group with other WikiJournals under development.[2] The journal is still starting out and not yet well known, so we are advertising ourselves to WikiProjects that might be interested.

Engaging Wikipedians

  • Original articles on topics that don't yet have a Wikipedia page, or only a stub/start
  • Wikipedia articles that you are willing to see through external peer review (either solo or as in a group, process analagous to GA / FA review)
  • Image articles, based around an important medical image or summary diagram

Engaging non-Wikipedians

We hope that an academic journal format may also encourage non-Wikipedians to contribute who would otherwise not. Therefore, please consider:

  • Printing off the advertisement poster an distribute in tearooms & noticeboards at your place of work
  • Emailing around the pdf through contact networks or mailing lists (suggested wording)

If you want to know more, we recently published an editorial describing how the journal developed.[3] Alternatively, check out the journal's About or Discussion pages.

Additionally, the WikiJournal of Science is just starting up under a similar model and looking for contributors. Firstly it is seeking editors to guide submissions through external academic peer review and format accepted articles. It is also encouraging submission of articles in the same format as Wiki.J.Med. If you're interested, please come and discuss the project on the journal's talk page, or the general discussion page for the WikiJournal User group.

Answered Questions[edit]

I checked all of the citations that were given and I was able to click on the links and they worked ! I did not recognize any plagiarism in this article. I also checked the information and I did not see any that as out of date but I believe that more information should be given about the subject and with more information comes more citations. Everything in this article was related to the topic and never went off on a tangent. Maglicel097 (talk) 21:17, 29 January 2017 (UTC)Emily Maglich 1/29/17

Malignant narcisissm[edit]

The article Malignant narcissism lists Trump as an example. I have brought up issues with this on the talk page. I would like outside analysis of this. --Harizotoh9 (talk) 06:34, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

That inclusion is a WP:BLP violation. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 06:42, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Donald Trump[edit]

There's tons of speculation that Donald Trump may or may not have certain psychological conditions. But it's just that: speculation. He does not have an official diagnosis of anything, and none of the people who are claiming he has these conditions has studied him personally. Thus, it is not a medically relevant diagnosis. Be on the lookout for people addding Trump to articles as an example of said disorders or to add information to the Donald Trump article directly. --Harizotoh9 (talk) 06:13, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
