Its true, things are slow on WikiBooks, and I take responsability for
it. Every since I have been down in Mexico (10 months or so) my access
to the Internet has been limited and I have not been keeping an eye on
things like I used to (someone had called me the glue that held WB
together). Well now I have Internet in my house again and can be
online more regularly and hope to be able to help things run more
BTW I was made a steward a while back and supposedly able to make
admins and some other stuff, but how in the world do I do it? Is there
a tutorial somewhere? Right now on the Spanish page I'm not even
allowed to edit protected pages. I thought I was supposed to have some
sort of power that transcends all of the wiki sites. Thank you to
anyone who can help set me straight on that.
For some reason, I have the impression that important administrative
things take too long to do in Wikibooks. For example, pages are on vfd
or speedy for months without any resolution. A lot still has to be
transwikied out of en.wikibooks and into their language books, and
there are few who would discuss policy such as a uniform book naming
scheme (much less few who could get to any consensus or make every book
conform to such a standard).
Is there something going on that I should be aware of, or is it that
Wikibooks really is way too undermanned in terms of people in positions

I'm glad to announce a new report for Wikibooks, generated periodically by
the Wikistats job.
You'll find here an overview of books, a list of chapters and some stats.
I discovered there are at least 6 naming schemes for chapters. This made it
difficult to automate extraction of chapter names, so in some cases the
grouping of chapters may look a bit odd. I'm sure this will improve when the
ongoing discussion about standardisation of article titles on Wikibooks
