Welcome to the Projects reading room. On this page, Wikibookians can talk about subjects related to books, book projects, and other tasks here on Wikibooks that require discussion and organization.


To add information on passports under Citizenship and Nationality per countryEdit

As passports are normally issued to citizens and nationals per country, any comment before I add a page like "Citizenship and Nationality/United States/Passports"? If okay, should the page be suffixed plural "Passports"? I also plan to start "Citizenship and Nationality/United States/Naturalization".--Jusjih (discusscontribs) 05:12, 28 May 2021 (UTC)[]

Glossed historical/folkloric texts?Edit

I've been thinking of glossing some historical/folkloric texts in rare languages morpheme by morpheme at some point - partly as an exercise for myself, but I imagine that it could be of some help to other people trying to learn about these languages. Do you think that such a project would be appropriate on Wikibooks? I saw that the current policy allows annotated texts in principle, but I'm asking this to be a little more certain that I won't be investing effort into something only to see it deleted.--95.42.19.211 (discuss) 03:58, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[]

As long as you follow policy, it is unlikely to be deleted. Typically works that are deleted don't follow policy, or are fairly obviously problematic in other ways. Note that if a good-faithed work was deleted that was broadly in line with Wikibooks' purpose, I mostly likely would be open to restoring it to user-space for it to be worked on and represented to the community, if requested. --Jules (Mrjulesd) 14:00, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks! What I wanted to check was precisely whether the idea would seem 'fairly obviously problematic' (or perhaps would violate some policy that I hadn't noticed).--95.42.19.211 (discuss) 21:23, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[]

Is it worth making a Team Fortress 2 strategy guide?Edit

Hello! I'm new to Wikibooks, but after seeing that video game strategy guides are allowed, I would be happy to make one. I was thinking about making one for Team Fortress 2. However, I read from the help section that a book shouldn't be redundant, and this makes me wonder if I should make one now. This is because of the Official Team Fortress 2 Wiki existing. It has a strategy section for each class, each mode and even each map, not to mention all the articles about hats, lore and more. On the other hand, it is a wiki and not a book, so perhaps it would be useful to put all the strategies in book form? Additionally, if I read its Terms of Use correctly (its possible that I didn't, English isn't my first language), the pages in there aren't Creative Commons or anything like that, so having similar info be actually free could be useful too. Should I make the guide or maybe do something else?--Maksutheam (discusscontribs) 15:56, 20 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello, sorry for the delay! I think that would be wonderful if that's something you would like to do! I believe the redundancy thing applies mostly to Wikibooks internally, since most of the books on wikibooks cover subjects which are also covered by other books. --Mbrickn (discusscontribs) 16:39, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[]
