Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia where all the information is present for which a user is looking. There are various articles present ranging from information about any personality to technical content also. The articles are maintained and published by a group of responsible persons, i.e., editors.
This project is about redesigning the Edit Request Form. In simple words, making of Edit Request Form from scratch which enables user to make a request to edit articles and add meaningful content to it from their end. The form will contain the information like name, what type of content needs to be added, from which source the data has been collected, what content needs to be added and so on. Its objective is to provide a user-friendly way for all the editors who want to contribute to the articles.

What I will do during my whole tenure is to work on this project. I will make a Github repository and push all my codes to it. When these codes are verified by my mentors, then, will merge it to the main branch.
I will make a documentation report for my daily tasks that I will be doing and will send to my mentors on timely basis.
I will be in full coordination with my mentor during this whole tenure and follow the instructions given by them.
I will coordinate with my mentor through mediums like zulip chats and will discuss about my code and all.

About Me

I am currently pursuing B. Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from Galgotias University. I am currently in my pre-final year. I am passionate about Web Development and as well as Android App Development and worked on several projects as well.
I came to know about this program from my seniors who were a part of this. I am very excited to be a part of this program.
I am applying for the organization named “Wikimedia” for GSoC-2022, and will be working on the project named “Edit Request Wizard Form”. I am very eagerly waiting to contribute my best to the organization. I will be working very hard in order to meet the organisation’s goals. I will be available to work on the project for the whole tenure.
Wikipedia is a great platform for students to get the detailed description for the topics that they are looking for. It has helped me a lot also whenever I was in need for collecting the information. The articles here are edited by the audience which makes it more genuine. The current way in which an edit request is made is complicated. So, this project is all about making this process very smooth, so that anyone can contribute into it. This would be a great help in making the edit requests very easily. I am very excited to be a part of this project.

Past Experience

I have good experience in Web Development frontend languages like HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap. I also have good experience in JavaScript which will be required for working in this project. Apart from that, I also know about the PHP, and the Firebase Database, through which we can easily store and retrieve the data. I also worked on some projects related to that.
Not only Web Development, I also have enough knowledge of Android App Development and worked on several projects as well.
I have also performed internships in several companies regarding Web Development, Android App Development, etc., so have good experience of company’s requirements. I successfully delivered the project to the organizations while working with them.

Any Other Info

I have completed the task mentioned in the project proposal. You can find it here.

@AniketTewari 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 75 quality applications, and we could only accept 10 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 2021 have become Wikimedia maintainers, contractors and even GSoC students and mentors this year!

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
