Summary[edit]

The summary is a group of summary sentences and associated keywords that describe the relevant topic(s). Below is an example.

The first column (after the line number) should be a single sentence. The second column should be a comma-separated list of keywords about that sentence, and so on. Taken together, all the sentences should provide an accurate summary of what was discussed with the specific community. Summary for the discussion:

Line Statement (summary sentence) Keywords
1 In terms of South Asian region, most people outside Wikimedia project think that Wikimedia projects are written by elite class of paid editors. They often guess the projects like some kind of news media outlet. Most of them have no idea that it can be edited by anyone. To address this problem, we should focus on organizing Wikipedia workshop on different institution more often. workshop, outreach
2 In Wikipedia, Facts Matter. In the next 15 years, we should emphasis on giving our readers more accurate information about their cities, important figures etc. We can also partner with local authority and use their resources to cite the information we're presenting. Facts Matter, citation, partnership
3 We should emphasis on highlighting the important points in medical related articles so that those points can also be used in emergencies. We don't have many professionals/doctors to write those article. We should also focus on encouraging professionals to contribute our projects by creating awareness. medical topics, professional, awarness
4 There is a national encyclopedia in Bangladesh called 'Banglapedia'. We can approach the relevant authority for permission to import those important local topics into Bengali/English Wikipedia. We can also import updated statistics for Wikipedia articles from various sources by an automated system. Banglapedia, information update, Wikipedia, bot
5 We should focus on making automation system more in Wikipedia projects. Some of the users suggested we need a software like Siri. Automation
6 We should emphasis on providing better support and resources to the small communities. community, empowerment
