TemplateEditDiscuss

Not Books Anymore[edit]

Books here have been converted, usually into meta-organizational pages for smaller books.

(Book) (Create - Create) (Edit Notes)Assembly LanguageNot a Book - Unknown
Is now a subject page for assembly language books.
(Book) (Create - Create) (Edit Notes)Modern PhysicsNot a Book - Unknown
This large book was separated out into smaller books for each individual subject. The resultant books are listed here: Category:Modern Physics.
  1. The "Gravity" section needs to be separated out into it's own book.
  2. Go through the book, find orphaned subpages and delete them.
  3. Evaluate some of the appendices to see where they can be moved, or if they should be deleted.
  4. Redirect this book to Subject:Modern Physics
  5. Update all "Modern Physics" templates to point to the right places.
  6. Maybe improve the look of Subject:Modern Physics
(Book) (Create - Create) (Edit Notes)Engineering TablesNot a Book - Unknown
At the moment, is just a listing of various tables for use in other books. Needs more, probably to be imported from WP.
(Book) (Create - Create) (Edit Notes)Electric CircuitsNot a Book - Unknown
Is now a subject page for books on electric circuits
(Book) (Create - Create) (Edit Notes)Reverse EngineeringNot a Book - Unknown
This is now a subject page for all software reverse engineering books.

Abandoned[edit]

These are books that I am not going to work on anymore, but I may be interested in finding new authors to adopt them.

(Book) (Outline) (Create - Create) (Edit Notes)AlgebraUnknown - Unknown
Several new contributors have been helping with this book, so it's actually doing better then it was. May still need to be merged/combined with Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, and some other related books.
(Book) (Create - Create) (Edit Notes)Arithmeticstub - Content
Book has a lot of redlinks, too little content, no solid structure, etc. Needs a lot of work.

Needs more content, better organization. Possibly split large pages into smaller pages. More references, links to resources, etc. Needs a cover page and a PDF version.

Book needs radical expansion, example problems, more information, etc. Needs formatting and cleanup. Is in bad shape.
