Voting Rules

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.

  • Life is the only timeline either God can control or you can. So this book definitely shows the way of life as to how it must be managed, about 75% people of the world don't know how to live this life they got. A really impressvie try by Vikram Vaka. Keep it up! — Mastermind 007 11:26, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

  • This book has rather small group of readers. --Derbeth talk 08:58, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
    • I don't agree. This book had lots of readers even before it became a wikibook. So far not very many of them are acquainted with the wiki techniques, that's true. But isn't this just a reason to support the book? Attracting non-wikipedians to Wikibooks? And, by putting it onto the start page as a Collaboration of the Month, attracting wikibookians to improve this book so that even more non-wikipedians will want to use it? --Daniel Bunčić 06:02, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

  • I think we should something that is more like a classic textbook. --Derbeth talk 08:58, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
    One of the plans for the book is to make it less hierarchical for certain presentation purposes. The current structure is great for online viewing, but I hope to flatten things out a little in a sort of "chapter" format. -Matt 04:46, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

  • I think the book is really great, neatly organized, excellent use of grammar and actually provides what is necessary for making movies. I'll also vote this book for Book Of The Month also because it deserves it. — Mastermind 007 11:26, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Comments:

  • I would vote for it, but we currently have French as BOTM and German has a large chance of becoming next BOTM. We should not prefer language books too much. --Derbeth talk 08:58, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

Wikibooks:All bookshelves

OK, the bookshelves are not a book as such - but they definitely need cleaning and it is a Sisyphean challenge. So I take the bold step and suggest a non-book for collarboration.

The following tasks need to be performed:

  1. Endless list of Red links - deleted books, suggested books, vanity entries - who knows. They all need to be checked and handled.
  2. Duplicated Shelves i.E. Art Bookshelve vs. Arts Bookshelve. Which is right, which is wrong?
  3. Page layout differs form shelve to shelve.
  4. Entries sorted by Alphabet, Category or Both.
  5. [[Image:25%]] have to be replaced with proper {{stage|25|Apr 12, 2005}}. (I got a vim script for that)

Shure enough work - and important as well
