Thanks for sending a specific suggestion to solve #392 :-) As per the contribution guidelies I would however suggest we iterate this PR a bit, so that we arrive at something that updates existing content, rather than adding something.

I don't think we need to add something theoretical here. How about we rather rephrase the next objective to "Make" or "Create …" so that we are reusing the wording of the questions above and avoid the duplicate meaning of Define?
