Here's a question: should the psychiatric staff be on the 'Administration' page (as 'Counselors', where it is now) or under the Medical staff on the 'Staff' page (which I just mistakenly added, as I couldn't find it earlier and misinterpreted 'counselor' to mean 'faculty advisor')? While it seems reasonable in either location, I think having it as a sub-section of Medical - or at least cross-referenced with it - makes more sense.

I haven't rolled back my existing changes yet, as I wanted to see what others felt was the best choice.

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!

IIRC, high school guidance counselors often have training in social work and counseling.

In the US, Psychiatrists are Medical Doctors whereas Psychologists often go for a PhD. (Joreymay might know of people with both degrees) However, the fields intersect, so I think they'd be hired as Medical Staff even while some also have faculty advisor duties.

Gray area there, because of the ambiguous usage of the word "counselor."
Sometimes it's used in the sense of "academic advisor," which may be just someone in the faculty or staff taking the additional role of helping students navigate the school bureaucracy.
Other times it's used in the sense of "psychological counseling." Those may run the gamut from social workers to clinical psychologists to medical doctors specializing in psychiatry.
To make it more confusing, we have people at Whateley who fit both meanings of "counselor." Dr. Bellows is a notorious case.

What I would suggest is to concentrate on the "psychological counseling" aspect, which would put it more or less(*) in the medical area.

Having a section dedicated to "academic advisors" under "administrative" does not make a lot of sense, since it's doubtful that there is anybody whose main job is "academic advisor to students"


(*)ask a hundred mental-health specialists if their job fits under the umbrella of medical professions, and you get two hundred answers

Is it just me, or is "A FANDOM USER" using wiki edits more for editorializing/reviews than for providing information?

Hmm...

Just from the Generator changes ... They could be a bit more clear... And yeah. They should cut down on the adverbs, like the ones I bolded... Oh, bolding doesn't work in quotes? I never knew that...

She is extremely creative in the use of her powers and equipment; she is underestimated constantly by everyone except Phase, who sees the horrifying potential of what she could do even from when they first met.

And I'd want references for all this information.

All that can be said is "At least they haven't done much"... Only 8 edits total.

Have we lost Xalt? I see he hasn't logged on for a month. Does anyone know if he's ok? I know he has a terminal disease, I don't want him to pass without being remembered.

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

His last wiki updates were a full day's worth of edits (13 of the 6,650 he's made) on 25 Sept.

Does anyone have any sort of direct contact with Xalt, or (if necessary) any of his family?

It sounds like we need to create a memorial page for Xalt. I hope that we can be worthy of the choice he made for this feverish contribution in his last days. That's very moving. Sadly, I suppose we should make a memorial category as Bob Arnold's page will only have more company as time marches on.

Thank you, Xalt. Thank you, Bob. We miss you.
