Wikibooks Philosophy Reminders
- Wikibooks is a project for everyone with good faith, patience, a willingness to learn, and a desire to share.
- Almost anyone can edit and revise any edit.
- Anyone who does good work is irreplaceable.
- A good outline is better than no textbook.
- With appropriate care, every book can someday be a featured book.
- Relevance is what the reader is searching for to expand their own knowledge.
- Technology is the means, not the end.
- Learning from others is the key to success.
- Improvements are preferable to deletions. A productive deletion discussion where people learn to improve material is preferable to a deletion where the same mistakes are repeated.
- Wikibooks is neither a playground nor a discussion forum.
- Quality doesn't happen by adding a warning box. Quality comes from experience and constant improvement.
- Common sense is something everybody needs but few have.
- Textbooks teach subjects objectively without a moral campus. Feeling very strongly about something makes writing in a neutral manner difficult.
- The quality of proposals matter, not the quantity of arguments.
- Rules are to help, not to obstruct.
- There are indeed more important things in life than contributing to Wikibooks.
- X Window Programming - I started this book to provide a more update, modern and complete approach.
- Understanding C++ - I started this book to help beginners understand the ISO C++ standard in simple terms.
- Help - Update occasionally to keep helpful for new users to Wikibooks.
- Category:Categories - Update occasionally to make the system consistent and easy to navigate.
