Reasonnipping in the bud— all activity is from May 18th-20th, critical comments have made strong points. WikiBooks exists for user-made educational books. WikiSource exists for notable freely licensed 3rd-party works. Non-educational user-made books are out of project scope. Dronebogus (talk) 06:23, 25 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Proposing a new WikiProject for E-books publishing. E-books should evolve and embrace data such as pictures, videos, tables, graphs, linked data, in line references, (wikilinks/hyperlinks). Basically E-books written using the Wiki Markup Language using a new MediaWiki platform. Books are written and look like they did 150 years ago and a lot has changed since then.

That is more like text books. This proposal is for publishing books. --Wikideas1 (talk) 08:16, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No! Already published textbooks go to Wikisource, much like a library. Wikibooks, on the other hand, allow anyone to publish material on their own, including original research, much like a publisher the proposer has proposed for. —‍CX Zoom (A/अ/অ) (let's talk|contribs) 10:58, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
