This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions).

  1. The same what Derbeath said about Polish Wikiversity. Finnish Wikibooks lacks of users and there is maybe one or two finished books. And quality is low. I don't see where we need Wikiversity and how it differs from Wikibook. Linnea 19:41, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
  2. Oppose --Kompak 20:12, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
  3. Oppose, I think there's no enough contributors. --15:26, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
  4. I contribute in fi.wikibooks (Wikikirjasto) and I see that books can for the moment be worked on in Wikikirjasto - and even then there aren't enough editors. -Samulili 16:02, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
  5. Oppose --Alfred Dengan 13:26, 15 September 2006 (UTC)
  6. I'd love to see this started in the future, but the most rational thing is to get this started in WB and if things look good, progress with the WV. --Jannex 19:42, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
