Character name appendix clean-up[edit]

Hey, I have a task force page called User:Cilantrohead/Character_name_appendix_clean-up now. Basically the crew monitors and cleans up the character name pages in the appenfix to Writing Adolescent Fiction in the ways listed. If you're interested in joining, or if in practice you've already been doing it, check out the task force and add your name to the list! Cilantrohead (discusscontribs) 04:49, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Advice on a new category about cultivation[edit]

I was thinking of creating some pages about plants cultivation, not in general but specifically for each plant. This project could become big, if there is a good response from people, so I would like to start it in a proper and scalable way from now.

Should I just create the pages at top level and then add them to the category, For example: Cultivation of Urtica dioica and add the plant cultivation category?

Or should I do as the cookbook does, so Cultivation:Urtica dioica, and then also add the category of course? Could you point me out using wikibooks best practices for doing so? Maybe something like the wikiprojects on wikipedia?

Thanks :) -- Beleriandcrises (discusscontribs) 20:25, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

@Beleriandcrises: Here we create coherent books, rather than individual pages. What you're describing sounds like a book with modules for individual plants. There would probably be some elements of the book that would be independent of any one plant, too; and/or, cross-reference to related books. We have a book Horticulture, which belongs to Subject:Agriculture and husbandry.

You may find useful material in our (featured!) book Using Wikibooks, which includes how to create new books. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 21:53, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
