Blog reminders and rules

Hello, everyone!

I think for the most part we’re getting used to the blog. Lots of students have apparently even rediscovered old friends and neighbors in the class! Perhaps you’ll even make new friends along the way. I hope you’ll find the blog to be rewarding when we’ll be discussing our future readings. But first…!

Let’s remind everyone of the rules:

All posts will end with text like the following. (You need to read it and follow the instructions.)

This assignment is due Tuesday January 24, 2012 by 11:59pm. You must make sure to log in to WordPressFacebook, or Twitter before posting, so that the website recognizes you and posts your lovely picture.

Note: If you’re following @kucognitivepsyc on Twitter, you’ll get a tweet when I post on the blog. Likewise, if you’ve subscribed to the blog, you’ll get an email when I post.

Deadlines ought to be observed.

You must log in appropriately before commenting. (If you’re on the same computer all the time, this information is likely saved the first time you log in, so you don’t have to trouble yourself with it.)

Follow @kucognitivepsyc for reminders and announcements when posts appear on the blog. (@meyourprofessor will provide more general tweets about psychology and another class of mine, so that account is optional. Please follow @kucognitivepsyc.)

So, as you see in the screenshot below, I am already logged in to WordPress and I am ready to leave a comment to the post. (You can even see my picture. A picture is required with your accounts! This allows me to deal effectively with spam on the blog, which you’ll notice is absent.)

If I wanted to Log Out, I could select so and re-log in with WordPress, Twitter, or Facebook, as you see in the next picture. The icons are on the bottom right.

Once you log in to Twitter or Facebook, you’re free to post, provided you have a picture associated with your account. Simple!

On another note, the Meebo IM chatroom is manned during my office hours (in case you can’t make it to Fraser 434) or by appointment. If I’m online, the room will look like this:

If it doesn’t say I’m online, I will not get any message you leave until next time I log in. So, email me instead! Also, where it says “edit nickname”, please replace the default text, normally something like “meeboguest3625746372”. If you don’t replace this text with your name, I will have no way to know whom to contact. So, email me if I’m not in the virtual office. If, however, you would like to chat anonymously, that is perfectly fine; no need to change the “nickname” then. Please do so during my normal office hours; I’m in my office (Fraser 434) and logged in, monitoring the Meebo online office.

One last thing! Please make sure to sign your posts with your first and last name and PSYC 318. This way, Yana, your TA, and I can make sure to award credit for your comments more effectively. If you ever forget, no big deal. Immediately hit REPLY to yourself and add the information. Easy!

Now let’s test this. Please indicate below in a comment that you have read this post fully and understand ‘the rules’ and demonstrate this understanding by following said rules.

  1. I skimmed through this and briefly read over the assignment that is due. From what I read, I fully understand what we are supposed to do…just kidding, I read it all.

  2. Oops. I wasnt aware that we needed to put all that information in a reply. Okay, so I’ve read the rules and understand. Should I go back to some of my previous posts now and make a reply with all my info?

  8. Thanks for clearing up all expectations and rules regarding the blog! I was a little concerned about using a blog at first but now I feel much better about it!

  9. I have fully read and understood this post. Further, in the future I will be sure to adhere to all of the above mentioned rules when posting on the blog. (This seems so formal I feel like it should be signed by a notary.)

  10. I have read and fully understand the rules for the blog, though I cannot speak on whether or not I have learned the rules or not. I suppose we will learn in due time.

    P.S. LOVE that we get reminders for these blog posts via Twitter!

  11. After a quick glimpse at the ‘do’s’ and ‘dont’s’ I believe I fully understand all the rules and regulations in order to successfully blog. I look forward to utilizing these helpful, ‘life-lesson’ skills in all that I do to better myself, my peers, and my university. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

  14. I’m not sure if this counts but I tweeted that I had read the syllabus when we were supposed to blog about it one day. Is there any way I could get half credit for that? I’m trying to earn back some points since I have been slacking a little. Thanks!
