Voting rulesEdit

Nomination

  • Every user can nominate books of interest for voting and add them at the end of the voting page.
  • A featured wikibook cannot be nominated again for one year.
  • To nominate a book just add that book to the voting section of the voting page using this Wiki code: === [[Book Name]] === where "Book Name" is the name of the book. When you have done this add {{Botm}} to the top of the front page of the Wikibook.

Voting

  • Every registered Wikibooks user can vote for as many of the nominated candidates as they like.
  • Only registered Wikibooks users should vote while they are logged in (check by history of page). This is because it is impossible to detect multiple votes by a user using different anon IPs.
  • Due to previous voting irregularities, we now require a user to show they are intending to participate with Wikibooks by showing a minimum of 20 edits in your edit history. This number may increase in the future if continued problems persist.
  • The use of sock puppets as a way to pad votes is strongly discouraged. While you are not restricted to only one user account on Wikibooks, please use just one account for any voting activities on Wikibooks including the Book of the Month voting. Suspicious cases of duplicate voting may be reviewed using the CheckUser services of MediaWiki software.
  • To enter your votes, simply edit the appropriate sections by just inserting a new line with # ~~~~ to add your username and a time stamp in a new numbered list item.
  • Please add only support votes. Opposing votes will not affect the result, as the winner is simply the one with the most support votes (see w:Approval voting).
  • You may add short supporting or opposing comments to each candidate, signed with your name. These comments do not count in the voting process.
  • Votes can be retracted by the voter until the voting closes.

Evaluation

  • Voting ends 00:00UTC on the day specified.
  • The winner is the candidate book with the most support votes.
  • In case of a tie, the older book will be selected (by book history).
  • Books with 3 or more votes will be automatically nominated for the following month.

  • I would vote for it. I think it's great, but I think we should wait a little bit. It has so much potential that I'd like to keep expanding it. I personally just discovered it, and feel like I have a lot to contribute. 68.35.202.40 04:05, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

  • This book has recently made a great deal of progress, becoming nearly complete and an incredible source of information and background for European History. Art has just been added, and some less important events are in the process of being added. Over the past few days, I've also added a lot of maps, pictures, and more. The book has been made uniform, showing the chapter title on each page, and starting with a brief albeit important introduction. This book is certainly in every way a comprehensive text, an incredible change, since just a few weeks ago the book was a maturing text. - Ultimadesigns 02:34, 9 May 2006 (UTC)
  • I am very impressed by this book, and surprised I haven't seen it before. o.O --Dragontamer 22:42, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
  • In simple words - brilliant, exquisite and developed. —— Mastermind 007 10:01, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
  • A great developed book of very high quality, I am in awe from this book. --German Men92 21:18, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
  • UPDATE: Print and PDF versions are now available. --Ultimadesigns 21:57, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Wow! This is one of the best wikibooks I have ever seen! It's full of reliable information. Everyone has to read this well-developed wikibook. Go Europe! -- Peteturtle 11:27, 24 May 2006

Comments:

This book is a a great study aid and has been helpful to a lot of people that I know personally. Also, other language books have been Book of the Month. Since Spanish is one of the languages with the highest population of Spanish-speaking people and since it is a common elective for American kids. I believe this should be made a book of the month. It is a wondrful source of information and should be rewarded. -Jack-o-jason 7:49, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Awesome book, great resource. Espescially with it's list of verbs and adjectives! I'm learning Spanish and I'm sure this will not only make great reading material, but help me in my studies.-writerhawk 20:16, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
