Voting rules

Nomination

  • Every user can nominate books of interest for voting and add them at the end of the voting page.
  • A featured wikibook cannot be nominated again for one year.
  • To nominate a book just add that book to the voting section of the voting page using this Wiki code: === [[Book Name]] === where "Book Name" is the name of the book. When you have done this add {{Botm}} to the top of the front page of the Wikibook.

Voting

  • Every registered Wikibooks user can vote for as many of the nominated candidates as they like.
  • Only registered Wikibooks users should vote while they are logged in (check by history of page). This is because it is impossible to detect multiple votes by a user using different anon IPs.
  • Due to previous voting irregularities, we now require a user to show they are intending to participate with Wikibooks by showing a minimum of 20 edits in your edit history. This number may increase in the future if continued problems persist.
  • The use of sock puppets as a way to pad votes is strongly discouraged. While you are not restricted to only one user account on Wikibooks, please use just one account for any voting activities on Wikibooks including the Book of the Month voting. Suspicious cases of duplicate voting may be reviewed using the CheckUser services of MediaWiki software.
  • To enter your votes, simply edit the appropriate sections by just inserting a new line with # ~~~~ to add your username and a time stamp in a new numbered list item.
  • Please add only support votes. Opposing votes will not affect the result, as the winner is simply the one with the most support votes (see w:Approval voting).
  • You may add short supporting or opposing comments to each candidate, signed with your name. These comments do not count in the voting process.
  • Votes can be retracted by the voter until the voting closes.

Evaluation

  • Voting ends 00:00UTC on the day specified.
  • The winner is the candidate book with the most support votes.
  • In case of a tie, the older book will be selected (by book history).
  • Books with 3 or more votes will be automatically nominated for the following month.

  • The German book is a great book to vote for. Even though it isn't complete, it is very well designed. And it has done many firsts, like it was the first to have a title, which is "Äußern!", just for example. Also when it's first cover page was successfully made, many of the language books mimicked it. This is one of the oldest language books, and deserves to be showcased. --German Men92 23:06, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Jwbaten3 created lots of minor edits to own usertalk page to meet 20 edit criteria (which is against the spirit of the voting rules). Therefore I feel this vote should be ignored, --Jguk 06:31, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I agree. --German Men92 00:29, 13 April 2006 (UTC)
  • This is an excellent language book. --Novialiste 12:32, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
Ja, klar! --Jfingers88 22:48, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Dirk_math: Please don't delete my vote as I have written this whole book myself before I became a registered user. And I really encourage everyone to have a look even if constructed languages are not really your thing, it is really as complete as possible!

  • Excellent collaboration. Brilliant design. This does needs a nomination. Mastermind 007 05:48, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
  • I think it's still too stubby, although TOC page is really nice. --Derbeth talk 08:47, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
