Oppose Oppose There are some stories in wikibooks so wikistories may be a bad idea Yrdsb (talk) 14:29, 3 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Strong support Strong support Wikibooks is people editing non-fiction, Wikistories is people editing fiction. Username142857 (talk) 14:46, 3 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Oppose Oppose just add non fiction books on wikibooks Yrdsb (talk) 14:56, 3 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Strong support Strong support Correction: Just add FICTIONAL books on Wikibooks. Also, no, because you need to be able to discern fact from fiction. Username142857 (talk) 15:08, 3 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Strong support Strong support wikistories is a good idea in case kids get distracted by wikibooks for fiction books and kids will be more focused on work and less focused on storiesYrdsb (talk) 15:16, 3 March 2022 (UTC). Yrdsb (talk) 15:16, 3 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Strong support Strong support Also, it allows people to build off other people's work (and make up their own stories), free from copyright laws. Also, every Wikimedia project is non-fiction, so I thought we should have a place to put works of fiction. Username142857 (talk) 00:34, 4 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Oppose Oppose Our job is not to be a hosting place for stories made up by random people, but a place to share free knowledge. If you want to share existing stories, Wikisource is already there. If you want to create new stories, go ahead and set up your own Wiki on Fandom. But we can't go around creating projects with stuff "made up one day". 2601:647:5800:1A1F:299F:7D80:4B3B:9E38 17:46, 6 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Strong support Strong support It says that Wikipedia is not made for stuff made up one day, not Wikimedia! Are you dyslexic? Username142857 (talk) 00:48, 7 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Please do not make personal attacks, or you will be blocked from Meta, just like you did on Wikipedia. 2601:647:5800:1A1F:CFD:F514:CDE6:9187 23:26, 8 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Strong support Strong support Fine. I'm sorry. But yes, my point still holds! Username142857 (talk) 07:59, 9 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
Please see WikiPoetry for more reasons why we don't do this type of project. 2601:647:5800:1A1F:CFD:F514:CDE6:9187 23:40, 8 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
