- By asking a Japanese frequent Wikidata contributor what you feel about Wikidata on a private message on Twitter.
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.
|Line||Statement (summary sentence)||keywords|
|1||Complaint to Wikidata is "hard to explain". Its mission is unclear. Where's the goal?||mission, goal|
|2||Ideal Wikidata is easy to imagine: where GLAMs from all over the world (especially not rich ones) can archive everything, run by donations, maintained by volunteers.||GLAM, volunteer|
|3||Wikidata is too evolved in the way librarians wished to-be, and got complicated, whereas Wikipedia is easy to explain; "an online encyclopedia". No metaphor for Wikidata.||complicated|
|4||Almost no or few applications of Wikidata are available. Current applications could be done with simpler way (e.g. DBPedia or OSM).||application|
|5||Wikidata should be a strong tool for arts researchers, but most of them do not understand what it is very much. RDF or RDBMS does not sound good for them.||research, arts|
|6||New "killer content" is needed for Wikidata. Species would fit in this, and why isn't there data of "all figures appeared in the Bible"?||content, application|
|7||Stop "using as interlang links" as an example of Wikidata application now, and how about putting "all the artifacts in a national museum of somewhere" data in and publish it right now?||content, application|

Detailed notes (Optional)
If you have detailed notes in addition to the summary, you may add them here. For example, the notes may come from an in-person discussion or workshop. If your discussion happened on a wiki or other online space, you do not need to copy the detailed notes here.
