Line Theme (refer to key) Question (refer to key) Summary Statement Keywords
1 A 4 We cannot develop healthier community with online activities any more. Current approach is not enough to diversify the community. We need to cooperate with outer organization to widen the range of knowledge. We also need to protect minorities more actively. Thesedays, discussions in the projects are too aggressive. Depending on volunteer will is not enough to solve this problem, so we need to search for other approaches outside of the Internet. community health
2 B 4 Machine translation cannot solve everything. We should also consider how to improve human translating ability. translation
3 B 4 More people will require non-text content including music, voice, and video. It takes too long to upload video files on Commons. We need faster and more convenient environment for multimedia files. multimedia
4 B 4 These days, everyone has their own smart phone. Unfortunately, it is still hard to contribute to the articles with the device. We should be able to use the same functions with all of types of devices. technology
5 C 4 Western social system or freedom is not common all over the world. Developing or underdeveloped contries fall behind in copyright laws, nonprofit activities and freedom of speech. People from developed countries should understand this. In addtion, we should understand different cultures, and the Foundation should reflect this when making decision. For example, many Koreans are not used to active and continuous discussion or speech for historical and educational reasons. cultural diversity
6 C 4 These days, all of us, especially Koreans, count on English Wikipedia, because it is so huge. Local wikis like Korean Wikipedia would grow when it strengthen its own capability. Localization could be one of the solutions. For example, we can collect informations about Korean local plants and monuments in cooperation with local history researchers. We don't need to develop partnership with only governments but also private organizations. localization
7 D 3 Requring references too srictly could drive new comers out and demage heathy community. We should not force to cite source. We should provide more convenient environment to find reliable sources and make footnotes technically. citation
8 E 5 In Korean, although central government have a lot of useful works, we can't use them, becuase of limitaition of law. We need to develop partnership with organization for legislative activities. We need to share common goal with them, and develop efficient scholarship programs. partnership
