Voting Rules[edit]

The following are the rules and conditions for voting for the Collaboration of the Month:

  1. Only registered users with 20 or more edits to their name may vote.
  2. You may vote under as many nominations as you wish, however, you may only vote for each book itself once.
  3. Sign your vote with a number sign and four tildes, #~~~~, after the most previous vote under the book's nomination. Unsigned votes will be removed.
  4. Any nomination which receives 3 or more votes in one month will automatically be renominated the next month if it is not chosen.
  5. If you wish to include a short comment for your vote, then you may do so. Make sure that if you leave such a comment, that you are also voting for that page.
  6. Do not post objection votes as these will have no effect on the final tally.
  7. Voting will end at 00:00 UTC on the first day of each month. In essence, when a new month begins voting ends. Any votes added after this time will be discarded.
  8. The nomination with most votes will be chosen as the Collaboration of the Month. In case of a tie, the older Wikibook will be chosen.

Nominations[edit]

Cookbook[edit]

(Automatically renominated with 3 votes in October) Votes:

Comments:

  • Anything on the Top active list should be ineligible. It's unfortunate that the Wikibooks:Top_active_SQL_query has not been run since March, but the Cookbook was normally in 1st place or 2nd place. I think the whole point of the Collaboration of the Month is to get people working on books that are sorely in need of contributers. Voting for something at or near the top of the most active list seems to defeat the purpose. AlbertCahalan 02:00, 7 November 2005 (UTC)
  • I have to agree with Albert, there are other books that need this "shot in the arm" more than the Cookbook. Gentgeen 16:04, 19 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Agree, it's closer to BOTM than COTM. --Derbeth talk 11:24, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Comments:

  • The people who most need this book are least able to contribute.
  • There might be some problems with the structure of this book that make it not eligible for Collaboration of the Month. --Kernigh 04:59, 18 November 2005 (UTC) -- I have withdrawn my vote before I change the structure. --Kernigh 18:58, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
  • This book is currently listed on WB:VFD. It would be a shame to make it the CoM, and then delete it. --Whiteknight TCE 15:04, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

  • We have nothing on this subject which could and should have so much.--SimRPGman 04:20, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
  • This needs to be a book, not a macropedia. --Kernigh 04:44, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

  • For those who have not taken this course, the syllabus specification can be found at the OCR website. Odd bloke 20:31, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
Chosen COTM - draw in votes, A-level Mathematics is older (21 December 2004 - 13 November 2005). --Derbeth talk 08:52, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
