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 [Example 1: Sentence] Wikimedia stands for a purity of knowledge and facts, untainted by commercial interests or political agendas, and promotes a knowledge culture of balanced information and cited sources. [Example 1: Keywords] independence, verifiability, facts matter
2 [Example 2: Sentence] We should explore new kinds of knowledge spaces, embracing innovation in order to survive and thrive in 2030. [Example 2: Keywords] innovation, forms of knowledge

Summary for the discussion:

Line Statement (summary sentence) Keywords
1 As a user group, we should have a physical space within which we operate. We should adopt the model of the hubs that allow people to walk in, even if it’s just to make enquiries about our community. The online based community is limited. Physical spaces/hubs
2 Wikipedia Education Program is our best means to get academic community to buy into Wikipedia and so WEP efforts should be intensified. Intensify WEP, panaceas
3 Judging by the role of internet in our movement, Wikipedia Zero should be extended to be on all networks. Expansion
4 WMF should strengthen user groups in emerging communities in terms of logistics to undertake programs that can impact the community and in turn Wikipedia as well. Empower emerging communities
5 WMF should be much more interested in helping the emerging communities where there’s a rise in internet penetration, get to the standards of the well-established communities. Parallel growth, technology
