30 C 2 We need to create a reliable knowledge that people from around the world can use as a basis for joint projects Reliable, Knowledge, Projects
31 D 1 Reliability is critical to Wikipedia. This is usually the first argument against Wikipedia. Reliability, Wikipedia
32 D 1 Technological collaborations should be established, both within the community and with external companies Collaborations, External companies, Community
33 D 1 Mechanisms should be established to identify the Vendals. And we should use AI for the identification of curses (etc). Mechanisms, Identify, Vendals
34 D 1 It has also been proposed to improve the Wikipedia interface so that it is clear where the information was taken from. An interface that will show readers how they can add information and how the mechanism works. Interface, Wikipedia
35 D 1 Experts must be recruited. Experts, Recruit
36 D 1 We must stress the importance of sources, and neutrality. Sources, Neutrality
37 D 1 Encouraging writing contests can help add editors to the editors circle. Encourage, Writing contests
38 D 1 It is very important to continue to maintain how Wikipedia works. The mechanisms the community has are critical to maintaining credibility, and are more important than a specific project to encourage writing. Maintain, Wikipedia
39 D 1 Some Wikipedians in the group have raised the issue of Prohibiting anonymous editing. But there were also Wikipedians who opposed the proposal. Anonymous-editing, Prohibiting
40 E 1 Educational projects create a reserve of editors (and therefore the subject is related to the theme "Healthy, inclusive communities"), which is important since there is naturally a departure. If there were no Wikimedia collaborations, the community would be smaller Education, Projects
41 E 1 Collaborations are needed to diversify and expand content. In matters that the editors' community does not know so well Collaborations, Content
42 E 1 Making new partners is a product of future growth partnership
43 E 1 In the present age it is easy to feel lonely. Wikipedia has community, discussions, conversations. Through partnerships with civil organizations working in this field, Wikipedia can play an important role in creating a social network around common interests, helping to fill this void Wikipedia, Social network
44 E 1 Promoting cooperation will enable us to create an integrated and interdisciplinary knowledge base that will enable us to learn about a particular topic easily and from different angles Cooperation, Knowledge
45 E 1 Wikimedia projects that are not Wikipedia or Commons generally tend not to rise. It seems best to try to embed content in layers within Wikipedia Wikipedia, Embed-content
46 E 1 Early childhood education projects, even before students can edit, are also important, because Wikipedia literacy provides skills to evaluate information that is becoming important in the present age education, literacy skills
47 E 2 The subject of cooperation is not as basic as the issues of Source of Knowledge, communities and The Augmented Age. In the last three Wikipedia is conditional. But, for 10-15 years we have lived "within ourselves", and we may have exhausted the inner resources of the community and the movement. Turning to new partners is a product of future growth cooperation, partners, growth
48 E 2 The issue of "A Truly Global Movement" is less important to me because it will require resources from another, more fundamental or more important place, and this development can even happen without our push Resources
49 E 2 It is impossible to give up on any theme, because all themes are like tools that are intertwined and connected. For example, on "A Truly Global Movement" - if non-mainstream population groups can not be represented - Wikipedia may be perceived as a site that represents a specific group and therefore unreliable Themes, Intertwined
50 E 4 Collaborations enable the production of quality knowledge by experts, but in return sometimes the Wikipedia rules need to be adapted to the needs of the body of knowledge with which they cooperate and to find a golden path Collaboration, Adapt
51 E 4 In order for educational and training initiatives to create a reserve of editors, a model should be created in which the project is not necessarily translated immediately into articles. This protected environment and training will enable them to have a positive experience and gradually become regular editors Education, Initiative,
52 E 4 In the context of commercialism, our entire essence is based on non-commercialism, and if we become flexible here we will owe it to others. we can't compromise on that Commercialism
53 E 4 In the field of technology, commercial companies have the potential to contribute a lot to us. Such as Google's translation tool. Insisting on the current rules regarding the prohibition of cooperation with commercial entities can interfere with our growth Commercial, Cooperation
54 E 5 It is possible to form cooperation with knowledge producers interested in giving representation to a field that receives problematic representation in the media / improving image / raising awareness of a subject. Cooperation, Representation
55 E 5 It is possible to form cooperation with knowledge producers who are interested in offering an innovative way to learn, especially with adult learners who have exhausted the "regular" learning methods. Cooperation, Innovative, Learn
56 E 5 It is possible to form Cooperation with knowledge producers interested in the desire to offer a community integration and an end to loneliness within the Wikipedia community Cooperation, Integration, Community
57 E 1 It is possible to form Cooperation with knowledge producers interested in increasing accessibility of content rather than placing barriers to accessibility in order to maintain exclusivity Cooperation, Accessibility, Content
58 E 1 It is possible to form cooperation with knowledge producers interested in adding additional content to existing articles cooperation, Additional content
