  • Short summary describing your project and how it will benefit Wikimedia projects

According to me this project depends on the users behavior and mainly focuses on the volunteers approach.I implement that machine learning tools be used in this prevent use of unfair means we have to see if the user is determined to use proper or unfair means.a simple yes/no may not be able to help determine the users correct intention.i propose that before asking the claim we ask the user multiple questions related to the topic and then determine whether or not the user will answer truthfully or not.

  • Possible Mentor(s) Eugene Egbe, Navino Evans
  • Have you contacted your mentors already? NO


Describe the timeline of your work with deadlines and milestones, broken down week by week. Make sure to include time you are planning to allocate for investigation, coding, deploying, testing and documentation
Weekly 5-6hrs will be devoted to the project since summer holidays have begun.the project will be broken down into basically the 5 top elements planning,choosing,implementing and testing each for a week .

i plan to communicate freely with my members and mentors through phrabicator

@Mufaddalhamid123 Hi! Thanks for your participation. It looks like you have answered no to the question: "Have you contacted with project mentors already?" and I wanted to share that communicating with project mentors is one of the many steps and a crucial part of the application process. See here: There is perhaps no time to do that right now; I still thought of highlighting it.

@Mufaddalhamid123 We are sorry to say that we could not allocate a slot for you this time. Please do not consider the rejection to be an assessment of your proposal. We received over 100 quality applications, and we could only accept 14 students. We were not able to give all applicants a slot that would have deserved one, and these were some very tough decisions to make. Please know that you are still a valued member of our community and we by no means want to exclude you. Many students who we did not accept in 2019 have become Wikimedia maintainers, contractors and even GSoC students and mentors this year!

If you would like a de-brief on why your proposal was not accepted, please let me know as a reply to this comment or on the ‘Feeback on Proposals’ topic of the Zulip stream #gsoc20-outreachy20. I will respond to you within a week or so. :)

Your ideas and contributions to our projects are still welcome! As a next step, you could consider finishing up any pending pull requests or inform us that someone has to take them over. Here is the recommended place for you to get started as a newcomer:

If you would still be eligible for GSoC next year, we look forward to your participation!
