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.

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
