Wikibooks Philosophy Reminders

  • Wikibooks is a project for everyone with good faith, patience, a willingness to learn, and a desire to share.
  • Almost anyone can edit and revise any edit.
  • Anyone who does good work is irreplaceable.
  • A good outline is better than no textbook.
  • With appropriate care, every book can someday be a featured book.
  • Relevance is what the reader is searching for to expand their own knowledge.
  • Technology is the means, not the end.
  • Learning from others is the key to success.
  • Improvements are preferable to deletions. A productive deletion discussion where people learn to improve material is preferable to a deletion where the same mistakes are repeated.
  • Wikibooks is neither a playground nor a discussion forum.
  • Quality doesn't happen by adding a warning box. Quality comes from experience and constant improvement.
  • Common sense is something everybody needs but few have.
  • Textbooks teach subjects objectively without a moral campus. Feeling very strongly about something makes writing in a neutral manner difficult.
  • The quality of proposals matter, not the quantity of arguments.
  • Rules are to help, not to obstruct.
  • There are indeed more important things in life than contributing to Wikibooks.
