Somwikiversity.gif Bienvenue - Willkommen - Bienvenidos - Dobrodošli - Welcome - Добро пожаловать - 歡迎I was hoping the clever use of engaging innovations would lure the best and the brightest from around the world to gather here at en.wikibooks and there would be an invigorating renaissance of creative individuals who would actually do all that work for me...and that maybe I could smoke a pipe surrounded by the Gertrude Steins and Ernest Hemingways of my generation, marvelling at how difficult it is to get an edit in without hitting an edit conflict.

User:Geofferybard/Cultures of Silence: A Collaborative PerspectiveEdit

From Paulo Friere's seminal contribution, a divergent set of views have emerged with respect to silence - is it a grim wet blanket foisted by guilt and shamers, or is it a sublime vehicle for negotiating the heights of mystic intuition and the rootedness of worldly wisdom?

A WWII-era recruiting poster for Merchant Marine sailors tries to inspire a sense of urgency: "Let's Finish the Job!"

Templates/userboxes this user createdEdit

Userbox: CaliforniaEdit

Fully documented templates: Template:Welcomeback/docEdit

Others (needing documentation)Edit

Template:Awaiting import For pages that need content but for which the templator is not prepared to go so far as to put in a request for import. Needs documentation. Template:Welcomeback

Even Babe Ruth had Strikeouts: Rejected templatesEdit

Template:Stub outline Rejected as redundant/redirected to Template:Stub. IMO it is aesthetically more pleasing to me to distinguish drafts from outlines. But I would concur that it is a level of redundancy which might warrant redirect to Template:Stub if the real issue is simply to avoid willy-nilly proliferation of templates. I suppose maybe someday this could be re-evaluated but for now simplicity seems to be the higher virtue.

Template:Stub draft See above discussion

Template:Possible high risk Redirected to Template:high risk. Intention was for use on new templates for which it was not clear whether or not they will actually become high use.
