Voting RulesEdit

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.

Comments:

  • This book needs collaboration from people with various Slavonic-language backgrounds (from Russian to Lower Sorbian). It is an open-ended project which will probably never be complete, but there is already a lot there to read, which might hopefully encourage people to contribute. --Daniel Bunčić 18:05, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Looks like a book with potential. UnfortunetlyI can't really contribute anything Klingoncowboy4 21:00, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
  • I think it's more related to a project/discussion but not really a Wikibook because it's more showing the evolution of many Slovakian origins which could/couldn't be a myth, so the book has somewhat has a neutral point of view but the nomination is due to the involvement of many users but still, it doesn't matters to be a "real" Wikibook. -- Mastermind 007 13:06, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Sorry, I didn't get your point, please make it clearer. It seems you have not really understood what the book is about. It is not about the evolution of any language, not about myths, and "Slovakian" is only one of the fifteen Slavonic languages covered by the book. Please have a look at the wikipedia article False friend to understand that False Friends of the Slavist is in a way a very typical wikibook, as it provides a practical help to all those who want to learn a Slavonic language while already knowing another one (and most people who know one Slavonic language do not stop there). Apart from that, especially the semasiological maps are also of linguistic interest. See the English-Esperanto, English-German (from the CoM Sept. 2005), English-Finnish and English-Dutch false friends for the relevance of this subject in other wikibooks. Note that even before this internet project became a wikibook it had already been used in class. --Daniel Bunčić 15:46, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

This is a general interest Wikibook that might actually get some additional people into Wikibooks for collaboration. It would be nice to get this book up to speed so as to become a Book of the Month candidate. --Rob Horning 00:35, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

I maintain this book and am glad it's up for nomination. The goals of the book are very large and a lot of content still needs to be added. What the book really needs is users who can add critical commentary and articulate descriptions of the storyline's plots, characters, etc. I don't want the book to become a "macropedia" with fact lists like Wikipedia already has. What the book is really meant for is commentary and analysis. Getting some public notice of this book would be great. -Matt 04:26, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Comments: I don't want this book forgotten. This is a very interesting Wikibook that has been sitting around just hiding out and not really doing anything. It would be nice to give this another push to get going, as there is quite a bit already there. --Rob Horning 17:06, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
