Welcome to the General reading room. On this page, Wikibookians are free to talk about the Wikibooks project in general. For proposals for improving Wikibooks, see the Proposals reading room.
http://www.sascommunity.org/wiki/ is going to be decommissions and is now read-only. http://www.sascommunity.org/wiki/sasCommunity:Terms_of_Use states (since April 2007) «CONTENT OWNERSHIP: Unless you indicate otherwise in the particular posting, by posting your content, you are granting sasCommunity.org and all other users of the Website an unrestricted, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide, and fully transferable, assignable, and sublicensable right and license to use, copy, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create collective or derivative works from, distribute, perform and display your content in whole or in part and to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed, and you further warrant that all so-called moral rights in such content have been waived», so it would seem that any user of sascommunity.org is able to sublicense the entire wiki under cc-by-sa (!).

What can the Wikidata community do to make it easier for Wikimedia contributors to understand Wikidata?
Books source and Wikipedia
- Wikipedia is not considered as a source because anyone can write anything in it. This is specified here: w:Wikipedia:Verifiability#Wikipedia_and_sources_that_mirror_or_use_it.
- Personally, I never publish any blog or forum as a source (except for Stack Overflow for computer tricks). JackPotte (discuss • contribs) 07:41, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
A question about rating when I review an edit: Do I rate the edit or the page?
I just visited Wikibooks and was puzzled by your request that I rate the quality. Rate the quality of what? The edit or the page itself? I liked the edit because it was a great improvement over what was written before. But I am not convinced the article's overall quality has changed much.
