I don't mean take a right-wing political viewpoint as much as i mean be careful what you put in this group. Remember, if the book is published, we want it to have the best, the most interesting, the most rewarding instructables in it, not something that looks good but lacks any real understanding or depth, Quality of pictures, grammar and spelling should also be important. Furthermore, i don't think we should post our own instructables over anyone elses instructables. All the instructables here should be subjected to scrutiny and examined thoroughly before being posted. Don't just add your own instructables just because YOU think they're cool. Kiteman started this group so ultimately it's he who decides what can stay and what can go, but if we're careful in choosing a selection of good instructables over a wide variety of categories (K'nex contraptions, fun with LEDs, iPod hacks, etc.) then we won't need to leave anything behind. An example of a bad instructable is my own scalpel. Limited instructions for a very simple project. Bad piccers and spelling. That's the sort of thing we need to keep out. V

I agree that only the best instructables should be in the book(s), but if we concentrate on only on area at a time (Fun with LEDs, iPod Hacks, etc.) then we would be able narrow down the choices much more easily then having to look through the 3000+ instructables just for around 50 of the best overall. So either there should be several books with each one only concentrating on one area or have one large book split into the separate categories.

i think the latter, but i'm a bit diappointed in only having 50 or so. Perhaps a competition? tho that would need to be approved and set up by ewilhelm
