I've just read this:
We can have a forum where each time we read something like this or just when something blinks into our minds, we will post it so we don't forget to cover this in the book - something that other books don't do. Another example of such a thing is that we cannot trust user data, we must filter any data provided by the user before doing anything with it, we also need to use mysql_real_escape_string() before inserting data into the database and not stripslashes()/strip_tags() or even worse like in most books: Nothing.

Three quick points:

1. Everyone gets recognition for contributing. (Crucial)
2. The copy restrictions on it are somewhat loose (not saying completely free-to-do-anything, just reasonably easy to reuse, like wikipedia's copyright)
3. OOP in a separate section. SEPARATE.

With those three, I'd totally be onboard! If not, I'd still enjoy watching the progress.

This is a very good idea, anything done as a community is worth done by 1000 professional writers. The community can pour in more ideas and experience. I will surely like to help this out, as I have been copy editor and technical writer for sometime around. Also, as a newbie growing up to novice state, i do know what all problems newbie encounter and whats the common mistakes one does which makes his otherwise correct code not work out the wat it should. i think we should start proceeding over this seriosuly. We should create a group of people who are inetersted in contributing and define responsibilities soon. We should hit the iron when its hot, like wise make the idea into reality before it dies out in our mind. :)
