Is this different in some way from wikibooks?

yeah, it’s stylized and organized differently, and its content is a little barebones compared to wikibooks

Thank you for acknowledging antifeatures. Regarding

Slightly vandalized with random articles.

Upon signing up for an account, I was disappointed to learn many pages are uneditable, such as book directories and book page directories (see: https://en.wikitolearn.org/Linear_Algebra) for instance.

It was also not maintained, and I could find no way to request deletion other than harrasing mods on talk pages (on the pages that actually have them)

What is more, as shown in linear algebra, deleted pages are actually not removed from the book directory

well, this is awkward… I’d have assumed that the word “wiki” would mean anyone could edit the pages and edit out the vandalism.

Your suggestion follows this subreddit’s rules! No need to feel awkward, just pointing out my notes for those interested. Cheers.
