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.

Comments:

  • The book is a guide to a simple everyday task. This makes the book both usefull and editable to many. It has a clear structure which makes appending easy. The book contains already the most basic information regarding the subject, but has been lacking attention for a while. --Easyas12c 20:07, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Comments: I think this book is very useful for any person who either enjoys the bard or needs a copy of one of his plays and the play's history for a homework assignment. Needs much help on adding plays.Brandon Johnsonn 20:04, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

The plays are complex, but we'd be much more likely to get them annotated as a collaboration than with casual efforts. Andrew Watt 19:57, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Comments: This book is lacking a lot of important information, many characters' pages have not been created, and Wikibooks need to get going on this. --Fbv65edel (discuss)>del 16:58, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

I agree, I think that we should get a good example of an annotated text/study guide up on the main page, as a template for future books. --Whiteknight(talk) (projects) 00:42, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

I tried to fix some of the pages up etc. a few months ago, this definatelly needs it.Dolive35 18:24, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Italian[edit]

Comments: This book is developing a lot. It's making progress and I hope it'll come to the standards of other books like French & German. Mastermind 007 16:43, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Korean[edit]

Comments: This book requires much work. There are good books for both Chinese and Japanese, but Korean has been neglected. For English-speakers trying to learn an oriental language, Korean is the most preferale because the Hangul writing system is phonetic, and words are divided up into syllabic blocks.

C Sharp Programming[edit]

Comments:

  • I think this book can rapidly become a valuable source of information, if only we make some effort in it. It has a solid base... but it's still unfinished. Sblive 21:57, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I am a messed up programmer: I use C, C++, C#, Fortran, Python, JavaScript, php, etc. I know what you can program, but all languages have their own special syntax - I'd be really happy to see a structured quickguide to C#. This book has my vote (although I'm not registered in wikibooks I have a english/swedish/common wikipedia useraccount) /sv:User:Per9000 20060622 1518 CET

Comments: I see that it's a nice book related to Physics with good illustrations and diagrams. Nice! Mastermind 007 16:43, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

So much to do and so little time... The mathematical approach in particular needs a lot of beefing up and elaboration in this book. The more helpers the better.

Reverse Engineering[edit]

Comments: This book has alot of potential, and could attract alot of contributors if we put it up on the main page. I think it's in a good condition, even if there are a few stub pages and sections here or there. --Whiteknight(talk) (projects) 17:03, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
