  • The objective of Edit-Request-Wizard project is to create a step-by-step form to help beginners for submitting a Wikipedia Edit-Request. Edit requests are prominent part of Wikipedia. An edit request is request for users to change some text in an article. The edit request is a simple form with source input fields (URL, ISBN, article etc.) and validate it for editing request which required front-end development skills like HTML, CSS and JS to edit an article on Wikipedia. The aim is to lead users for submitting a Wikipedia edit request, with better guidance and without error messages, suitable for use by beginners. This project's purpose is to make edit request process more user friendly.
