  • Discussion coordinators summarize and submit local feedback to the draft via the summary skeleton.
  • If a point is "above the bar" (priority 1) - strong sentiment by the local community that something absolutely needs to change, be removed or added - then the coordinator also adds comments to the talk page on Meta as well while referencing the sources statement - do this on an ongoing basis.
  • A - Direction: The future we imagine (green box).
  • B - Remaining sections: Reasoning, Implications.

  • 1 - This is absolutely necessary change (either to keep or to eliminate)
  • 2 - This is a change, but not absolutely necessary
Section Priority Summary Statement Overall sentiment Keyword or phrase
B 2 The overall abstraction level has peaked. The draft is difficult to understand, let alone to act upon. concern misunderstanding, hard to follow up
B 2 We depends so much on sources, and now trusted sources are manipulated by political and business purposes, so our factual ground is being eroded and we become political and bureaucratic. concern impartiality, neutrality, bureaucracy
B 2 The way how Wikipedia works is so radical, difficult to understand, so more public relations work should be actively done to let more people understand about wikipedia and its sister projects. concern misunderstanding, how wikipedia works
B 2 We should add some social network function into Wikipedia (instant messenger, recent changes notice delivered to mobile phone). It will strengthen the community and keep people staying with Wikimedia projects concern community building
B 2 We should provide more and more trainings for people about wikipedia and its concept, most of them just read Wikipedia and don't know that they can edit concern training, awareness
B 2 In Vietnam and maybe other countries, most people just edit Wikipedia by using IP. They don't bother to register an account. We should be more civil to IPs and interact with them more. concern community building
B 2 Wikipedia is harder to edit and to discuss about, than, social platforms. To separate main article and the discussion page make people discuss less than, in Facebook. concern edit, discussion, community, collaboration
B 2 Since English wikipedia is the best product we can offer by now and in the long term, we should promote English learning throughout the world instead of wasting effort on translate/recreate articles for so many small languages. Once people master English, they will naturally want to translate the knowledge in English wikipedia into their own language, at their own leisure pace. concern language
B 2 Wikipedia can adopt some personal relation function like messenger and the ability to see who is online. The community will benefit and contributors will feel closer to each other. concern community, collaboration, relationship
