Welcome to the Projects reading room. On this page, Wikibookians can talk about subjects related to books, book projects, and other tasks here on Wikibooks that require discussion and organization.


New book: Epistemology[edit source]

Hi, I've moved over a book I've been working on from my sandbox to its own page at Epistemology. Any editors here who happen to know about the subject and want to help out are very welcome to contribute and add anything they think will improve the book. It's only partially worked on so far but I hope to come back to it every now and then to improve and add to it until it's done. I'm not massively knowledgeable of how Wikibooks works or how to make my book fit guidelines, accessibility, etc. so help there would also be appreciated if the book needs it. Thanks.

To add information on passports under Citizenship and Nationality per country[edit source]

As passports are normally issued to citizens and nationals per country, any comment before I add a page like "Citizenship and Nationality/United States/Passports"? If okay, should the page be suffixed plural "Passports"? I also plan to start "Citizenship and Nationality/United States/Naturalization".--Jusjih (discusscontribs) 05:12, 28 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Glossed historical/folkloric texts?[edit source]

I've been thinking of glossing some historical/folkloric texts in rare languages morpheme by morpheme at some point - partly as an exercise for myself, but I imagine that it could be of some help to other people trying to learn about these languages. Do you think that such a project would be appropriate on Wikibooks? I saw that the current policy allows annotated texts in principle, but I'm asking this to be a little more certain that I won't be investing effort into something only to see it deleted.--95.42.19.211 (discuss) 03:58, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

As long as you follow policy, it is unlikely to be deleted. Typically works that are deleted don't follow policy, or are fairly obviously problematic in other ways. Note that if a good-faithed work was deleted that was broadly in line with Wikibooks' purpose, I mostly likely would be open to restoring it to user-space for it to be worked on and represented to the community, if requested. --Jules (Mrjulesd) 14:00, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! What I wanted to check was precisely whether the idea would seem 'fairly obviously problematic' (or perhaps would violate some policy that I hadn't noticed).--95.42.19.211 (discuss) 21:23, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
