Redirecting as out-of-date?[edit]

The information on this page originated at a time when nobody had yet begun to draw together a real descriptive taxonomy of what contributors on Wikiversity had really been producing in the way of resources. Such a catalogue or taxonomy is now available at Help:Resource types. It is suggested that this page should be redirected to Help:Resource types. I can't see anything worth keeping from this page - but perhaps someone could suggest sections to be moved with the redirect? --McCormack 09:54, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

McCormack: I disagree with you completely. Help:Resource types is a totally different page. Just make a link to your new page from this one.--JWSchmidt 16:54, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
"A totally different page" - let's see. (1) Both this page and Help:Resource types start off by comparing with other Wikimedia projects and their resource types, but Help:Resource types does so in more detail. (2) Both this page and Help:Resource types then list types of resources, but this page only has 3 rather thinly defined types. There are some portal links on this page which may need to be added to Help:Resource types during a merger/redirect. (3) Both this page and Help:Resource types contain links to where resource types can be found, but Help:Resource types uses the category system and is more extensive. Assuming even the best of good faith, I cannot see why someone would say "totally different". Perhaps you could support your view with more detail about what makes this page different? Then we could move forward and identify material for merging. --McCormack 09:29, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Namespace issue[edit]

This page is also in the wrong namespace. It should be in Help or Wikiversity. --McCormack 09:45, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Restrictiveness[edit]

The restriction of this page to 3 resource types, and the way this is worded, seems to me to place unwarranted restrictions on the development of Wikiversity. Redirecting to Help:Resource types. If there is material here which is worth preserving, please fish it out of the history and add a section to Help:Resource types. --McCormack 09:45, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

  • This page is a learning project. It is not an attempt to list every possible type of learning resource. This page encourages participants to create learning resources and catalog them at portal pages so that other Wikiversity users can find them. This page emphasizes the main types of learning resources and can be linked to more specific types, as needed. --JWSchmidt 16:45, 10 April 2010 (UTC)


ABC Islam - The Book[edit]

Dear Editor,

I have written a rocking book that I wish to publish abroad due to its sensitivity and importance. My book is a Personal Development book promoting Teachings of Abraham and explains the Quran touching the taboos of religion, politics and sex.

The book addresses the people who feel there is something wrong with the current version of Islam but do not know what exactly is wrong, and why Muslims are lagging behind the world, and I make it clear that following the Religion of Abraham is the proper fashion of Islam. I have kept most of the Quranic terminology in Arabic without translation to avoid misconception. Yet, the innovation of this book lies in its being the first book written in a Brainstorming fashion and the Quran verses are being explained more liberally according to Personal Development concepts and theories and in light of the Bible which proves that the Quran and the Bible are both guiding us to a better life and vision than what we have now in the Arab World. The book addresses most of the taboos now causing conflict between the Arab world along with the Muslims all over the world and the rest of the world. Taboos as Palestine-Israel conflict, Relation with Jews and Christians, Politics and The Egyptian Revolution, Virginity, Veil, Marriage and the Woman taboo in general, Sexuality and Homosexuality, Praying, The Danish Cartoons about Muhammad, Karma, Reincarnation Theory, A Nobel prize agenda and more. It is a phenomenal study that proves the Quran is guiding us to live a life close to what the West is living today, and Islam is not at all guiding us to be a conservative and black or white society but on the contrary is guiding us towards liberty, and that there is acceptance room in the Quran for everyone even the Homosexuals in a religion which I call "Islam of Abraham".

I wish you would provide me the support needed to publish my book for I believe "ABC Islam" will make a dramatic change in the world's view and mentality as it is a revolution in Quran interpretation based on Personal development concepts and conforming with the Bible and Torah. The author of this book is me, Wessam Muhammad Abraham, Egyptian 41 year old Telecom Engineer who worked as Marketing and Sales Manager for Ericsson Telecom, Nokia Networks and Cisco Systems, BSc. University graduate and Personal Development specialist for 12 years. I have traveled to Europe and lived in Sweden, Spain and Finland for years. I have been writing this book for 5 years and only now I am finishing it.

I care to find a prestigious publisher abroad, and I trust you are the best resort to have this book see the light and I do hope you would assist me publish this book after you see the work and find it worth survival.


Unfortunately the book is still in Arabic text for I could not find a professional translator up to the level of this book, yet there are English captions on the brainstorming pages.
