Summary for the discussion:

Line Statement (summary sentence) Keywords
1 I hope Wikimedia will focus more on developing the technical side of WikiProjects. Technical, software
2 Referring to comment 1: How can we particularly improve technically? I believe that a major problem could be the excessive difficulty of using wiki plugins for non-programmers. Technical difficulty, non-programmers
3 Referring to comment 2: This is a major issue that started 15 years ago, when Danny insisted on keeping Wikipedia technically simple in order to allow older computers to run the website. Technical simplicity
4 Referring to previous comments: Wikimedia Foundation has made enormous technical improvements recently, such as the visual editor and flow. However, we are still looking for more softwares on Arabic language projects, for example, I had like to see the auto voting tool introduced to Arabic Wikipedia. Visual editor, flow, vote
