Yeah, UnBooks. So... I took a look at the UnBooks:Main Page today, and it's kinda out of date. So I looked a bit further and found voting pages no-one's looked at in ages - Sycamore's the only one to have edited that one this year, for instance. Looks like there's not much interest in voting on UnBooks and so forth at the moment (apart from AotM), which is understandable - there's enough to vote on around here already, and UnBooks is hardly a priority. But I'd say there is a point in keeping the UnBooks page up-to-date, and not leaving it with a bunch of August '07 "features" on it.

So, as I'm now looking after the HowTo main page in a similar style, I'm suggesting I (or someone else if you prefer) take on regularly updating that page, abandoning the featured UnBook votes thing, and regularly (weekly?) featuring a decent recent read (possibly one that's had a good pee review, if you don't want it to be beholden just to the personal taste of whoever looks after the UnBooks page). That way, we're not asking people to vote on more stuff again, but the UnBooks page doesn't look hopelessly out of date.

Post any objections below. If there are none after the precise timeframe of a few days, I'll go ahead and make a few changes over there. Of course, if there are any objections from people who want more stuff to vote on, we could always have a vote here about how best to do this. Whatever. Thoughts, anyone? --SirU.U.Esq.

I second UU and maybe someone else doing a load of work to keep this page updated. Hear, hear!!! == Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Awesome UU. /me looks over shoulder hoping someone else will offer to help... I'm too lazy myself obviously. :) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 18:07, Jun 12
Also, as there don't appear to be any Americans here, anyone for Pimms? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 18:13, Jun 12

You know, I've written a few UnBooks(es?). Let's just feature those, over and over again. That'd be sweet. - Don Leddy the Crunch Fedora (Nyah, see, nyah!) 18:58, Jun 12
I like this idea, it was one I was just on the cusp of having myself. In fact I'd be glad to help you out with this if you want/need. Have Fun!MuCal. Orian57 Orian57Talk!Read!PEE!UnProvise!CMC! 03:45 13 June 2008
Cool, well the exact second that the "a few days" time limit is up, if there are no objections, I'd be glad of your help Orian. --SirU.U.Esq. VFH | GUN | Natter | Uh oh | Pee 13:56, Jun 13
I AM HELPING - :-D - it's not my fault I missed this topic! Maybe sometime I'll drop by and make a few minor tweaks, I love doing this sort of thing. I won't disturb your work to much... Have fun. - [18:44 13 June] Sir FSt. Don Pleb Yettie (talk) QotF BFF NotM RotM UNPotM UGotM CUN PEE SR UnProvise
My ones been up there for ages, it has a staggering two votes-can it be the featured unbook?--— Sir Sycamore (talk) 18:45, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Can I have my Olympic Book on up for like a month or so before/during the olympics? --Sir DJ ~ Irreverent Icons-flag-au Noobaward Wotm Unbooks mousepad GUN 14:44, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Okay, that's precisely a few days, so I'm getting started. I'll be shifting a few bits about in the next few days trying to get the place to work a bit betterer again. Sycamore's book is now the current feature, and a few other changes will be implemented shortly. May well go to a book of the fortnight, as there are plenty to choose from at the moment. Then DJI's could go up during the Olympic opening ceremony, and someone elses's two weeks later. Anyway, yeah, glad to see no-one objected to me making more work for myself! ;-) --SirU.U.Esq.

I'm gonna take some responsibility for this

You can blame me for not maintaining UnBooks any more but it's good to see that other people have taken over and are updating it. Do as you wish, though if nobody is voting for featured UnBooks, I suggest someone periodically update the feature template with a recent UnBook anyway - that's what I used to do (more often than not, actually). Toodleoo. -- Hindleyite Converse 10:39, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
