Wikibooks:Book of the month/November 2006 voting

Vote for the book of the month of October 2006.

The voting for the Book of the month for November 2006 is open from October 1st, 2006, and will close on October 31st, 2006, 00:00 UTC. The book of the month will be featured on the main page of Wikibooks in November.

Closed. Any votes added will be reverted.

Voting rules Edit


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.
voting rules are adapted from the Wikinews logo contest voting

Nominated books Edit

Raising Chickens Edit

Since no book made it to this month (the only one with three or more votes won) I will re-nominate this book and see how it goes.

Comments: So far it seems that this nomination is serving only as a token aponent, which is ok. Klingoncowboy4 16:51, 12 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Special Relativity Edit

Interesting topic, could use more exposure so that people could learn how this area of science works.
