Wikisource talk:WikiProject Influential Books

Latest comment: 17 years ago by Metal.lunchbox

I have a serious concern about the "influential books" portal part of this project. I'm concerned that it is far too subjective to be meaningful and is esentially outside the scope of wikisource. What I mean is that this kind of editorializing by declaring which books you (or someone else for that matter) think to be influential is much too subjective and does not add to the purpose of wikisource. It sounds to me like a list of you or someone else's favorite books. By all means if you think a work is important and is not present at wikisource than add it, but having an "influential books" portal seems inappropriate to me. I think that your project insofar as it seeks to add influential books to the wikisource project is meaningful and worthwhile, it is only the idea of organizing books as "influential" that I object to.
