  • Making the edit request wizards easily understandable and hassle free.
  • Making a source form where user can enter the evidence/proof of the correctness of the edit made by him/her.
  • Ensuring the reliability of the data entered by the users.
  • Making a text area type input box where editors can give some idea about their edits and evidence added as source.
  • Keeping the user informed about the acceptance or rejection of the edit request.


  • I will make a branch in the forked repository and make the changes in them on a daily basis.
  • Before making the pull request and committing the changes I will make sure that all the changes are done and the functions used in it are errorless.
  • Also, I will ensure that the code for which the pull request is to be made is first checked and approved by the mentors.
  • I plan to write the EOD(End of Day) Report everyday so the work done on a daily basis can be tracked and managed well and write a summary at the end of every week and upload it on my personal wikipedia page.
  • I will be active on Zulip during working time for any conversation and also on email forever.

About Me

  • I am a first-year student at IIT (Indian Institute Of Technology) Patna doing B.Tech in CSE(Computer Science & Engineering). I am a member of the development community in my college. I believe in team work and constantly work towards developing my leadership skills. I was the head boy during my school days and ensured discipline in my school.
  • I heard about this program during my JEE vacation. I was amazed by the exposure it provides and wished to get into it.
  • Going through the organization list, I found Wikimedia, and when I went through the idealist, I was very excited to contribute to it. While looking forward to searching a pin to the planet, we find everything on Wikipedia, and contributing to make further reliable edits on it will turn out to be a boon to me.
  • I am eligible for GSOC’2022 and wish to contribute to the WikiMedia organization. Reading the ideas about the project on GSOC Wikimedia page, I believe, I possess the required skill set to complete the task. Learning is perennial and so, I believe will be my contribution to the project.


  • I had performed 4 microtasks.

@Happy.54545 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
