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 Before we go to reach sky - we must sort out basic technical problems in software, such as better reference system, hyphenation, support for non-standard characters, improvement of diff system, better indexing of search engine, which for years irritate devoted editors. Technical issues, software, user interface.
2 The problem is the balance of "leftist" and "rightist" editors. "Leftists" tend to work fast but they are quite often very chaotic, "rightist" think very long before they start doing anything - they are perfectionist. At the beginning of the Wikipedia the majority of users were "leftists", but many impatient ones left Wikipedia for other faster social media sites such as Facebook. It wasn't bad as it helped to better structure Wikipedia and make it less chaotic, however now the "rightist" users are slowly leaving the project as well and the new ones "leftist" make turn Wikipedia into chaos. Therefore there should be a delicate balance between those 2 groups, and if moved in one or another direction it may means the death of the project. So - what we should do is to nurse this balance - help find newbie "leftists" when there are too many "rightists", but also take care of "rights" when there is too many "leftist" approaching too fast. Community balance, stability and rules vs chaos.
3 Polish Wikipedia tends to be leftist in a political sense. The accusation is based on reading several articles about World War II history. It was disputed by another user, who pointed to articles with rightist and conservative bias. Poliical bias, leftism, rightism
