Logo proposal for 2016 edition

The Cookbook week (CBW) is an annual event made to improve Wikibooks' cookbooks and share recipes of all countries. During a week, contributors are invited to contribute to Cookbooks in all languages.

Concept[edit]

During the first complete week of July, contributors are invited to improve the cookbooks in these ways:

  • Add recipes of recipes of their countries
  • Translate recipes of their Cookbooks in different languages
  • Translate recipes of other Cookbooks in their language
  • Add pictures on recipes from Commons and take pictures of meals
  • Link recipes to Wikidata items

Rules[edit]

The CookBook week is not a contest, there is no committee or global rewards. Contributors just have to respect rules of Wikibooks.

[edit]

A new logo is chosen by the community on Meta each year. It must be flat, in the Wikimedia's blue (#336699 in HEX), and have a relationship with food. Community is asked to choose logos from various cultures.

Rewards[edit]

Wikibooks' communities can rewards most invested contributors of the event

Statistics[edit]

Wikibooks are asked to count how many recipes they have before and after the event (you can do it with PetScan)

Announcement[edit]

CBW is announced two weeks before the beginning at the Village pump and on the community portal. A CentralNotice banner announce it two days before the beginning, and is left until last day of the event.

A central page will be created and marked for translation on Meta.
