Thanks Enid and Toria. I've marked ten each.

Bluecat - I vote we keep the SoE thread, as it is there in case people come across this dated term and want to know what it is, but it is good to have it marked as clearly out of date.

Thanks Will. I've marked some on the list.

How are people doing at the ones marked out? Anyone else willing to do some? You don't need to be an expert - just to flag up dated content or broken links.

I've gone through these now :) I've written next to each link below:
maven wrote: Toria:
How are applicants short-listed for AP posts? Done - all looks good to me

How do I critique a research paper? the reliability and validity link doesn't seem right (it goes to the A-Z in Clin Psych wiki), CASP is now called Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM)

How do I decide which post to take? Done - all looks good to me

How do I get NHS ethics approval and Research Governance? All links are broken and so I'm unsure how up-to-date the NRES info is. I've never done NHS Ethics so am not that sure, sorry!

How do I learn about issues in the NHS if I don't work in it? The first three links are broken

How do they decide which band a job is on Agenda for Change? The link is broken

How does the salary as a CP compare to other jobs? The salaries are out of date and I'm aware there are differences between salaries in England, Scotland, and Wales

How hard is it to get onto clinical psychology training? The figures stop at 2012

How much to disclose: sexuality Done - all looks good to me

How should I approach a research vignette? Done - all looks good to me

Thanks Toria, and thanks for volunteering Haymond. We need a few more people, and then we need to mark each thread as checked and updated if it is fine, and ask for help to update those that need it.

I've posted on the ones that need updating out of my ten.

The effect size and power calculator link didn't work.

Some of the posts here viewtopic.php?f=16&t=19712 might be a useful update for the "Do I need to deal with poo or violence" wiki

Some of the posts here - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=19715 may be useful for the "fitting in both family and career" wiki

I'll do ten, though I will not be able to start on them until Ramadan is finished, which is in two weeks time. If that's alright

Mine done - sorry for taking so long. All broken links etc. fixed.

Only one to mention is the 2-2 article - I haven't gone through and checked the requirements of each course; though aware this could be out of date now. Would it better to remove this and just signpost to the clearing house website for individual course details?
