**About the app:**
The Wikimedia Commons app is an open-source app created and maintained by grantees and volunteers of the Wikimedia community to allow the Wikimedia community to contribute content to Wikimedia Commons. Users can upload photographs taken directly from the app or from their device’s gallery which then goes directly to the organization’s database. Wikimedia commons accept only free content i.e images and media files that are not subject to any copyright. Users can upload multiple images at once and those can then be given various tags specific to them such as category, title, and description.
**About the Project:**
The project proposed for this summer aims at sharing feedback about uploaded photos, educating people about topic & copyright and adding some sort of gamification to drive engagement.
The project will be completed in three phases:-
1) ** Sharing Feedback **
1. Develop a profile activity to let the users access their "profile" by clicking on the icon next to their username in the nav drawer. In this profile page, Display the following stats using [ `urbanecmbot Tool`](https://tools.wmflabs.org/urbanecmbot/commonsmisc/feedback.py?user=username):
- Number of Uploads
- Received thanks
- Number of images used in Wikipedia/Wikivoyage/etc articles
- Number of images that have been edited by someone else (including simple description typo fix and categorization)
- Number of images that have been featured or received other kinds of awards
- Number of Quality Images
- Add the following two stats in profile activity
- Received barnstars if API/tool for that becomes available
- Include negative statistics (Number of Deletion requests/Upload revert rate) with a link to the deletion discussion/reason if possible to get an API for the same.
- Develop an info page which would display the information about each of the stats included in the profile page with titles such as 'What are the quality images' or 'What are the featured Images' etc to let the user know what his stats actually signify.
- Add a button `Improve your stats` on this info page to connect it with Tutorials so that the User could watch the tutorials again in order to improve his statistics.
- Add the info icon on the toolbar of the profile page to connect the info page with the profile dashboard.
2) **Tutorial & Quiz**
1. Display tutorial again and implement a quiz, for users who have a high upload revert rate
- Develop a series of quiz pages similar to the tutorial pages with simple Questions with two buttons yes/no as answers
- Display the correct answer in a pop-up window whenever the user clicks on the wrong button.
- Extend the tutorial with the quiz pages by adding another button (example 'Take the Quiz') next to the `welcomeYesButton` in `welcome_final.xml` (Final Tutorial page). Continue the pages to the quiz pages if the user clicks on `Take the Quiz` or Skip to the `ContributionsActivity` if the user clicks on 'welcomeYesButton'.
- Explore the available APIs or Tools to find a way to get the upload revert rate
- If the revert rate becomes available, prompt the user with low revert rate to watch the tutorials again and take the quiz by opening a pop-up window whenever the user opens up the app. Add options such as `Watch tutorials` and `I'll watch them later` in the pop-up window. This way, User will be able to know that his stats are alarming with an option to watch the tutorials and also if the user has already seen the tutorials once he can cancel the pop-up window by pressing the other option.
- If time permits, Add Gamification to drive more engagement from users as per the discussion available on https://github.com/commons-app/apps-android-commons/issues/85

Yes, I am planning to apply for both GSoC and Outreachy with WikiMedia .
- **What does making this project happen mean to you?**
Contributing to an open source project has always been a thrilling experience. The feeling or enjoyment that you get when your patch gets merged is beyond explanation. Moreover, It makes you get out of your comfort zone and gives you an opportunity to work on a real project .
This project focuses on enhancing the experience of users while making media contributions to WikiMedia Commons. I believe that it resonates with the idea of 'let everyone contribute to create something better' and this is what encourages me the most to work on this project. Adding feedback and creating interactive quizes are great ways to improve the user experience as well as to enhance the quality of uploads .
Moreover, Working on this project will not only give me a chance to work under the guidance of experts but also an opportunity to reach a million of users through a few lines of code. Developing something useful for the community imparts an unparalleled sense of contentment and satisfaction.
- ** Android Development **
Developed a Music player [`Symphony`](https://github.com/ayushin78/Symphony/) in android to get myself introduced with Android development. It has all the basic features of a music player.
Developed a Weather App [`Weather Companion`](https://github.com/ayushin78/WeatherCompanion). This Android application fetches the weather conditions of the city using openweatherMap API and displays it on the screen. The user can send the info to their friends using it. The user can have the notifications of their area’s current weather as well as a forecast for the whole upcoming week.
- ** JAVA **
Have a strong foundation in Data Structures and ALgorithms in java.
Developed a simple Tic_Tac_Toe game using java.

- ** JSP/Servlets/Hibernate **
Last summer, While doing an internship with a startup, I got experience to work with jsp, servlets and hibernate.
- ** Git **
It took me some time to understand the actual power of git. It is not the first time I am contributing to an open source project. I started to work on open source projects two years back and learned how to use git properly through my mistakes.
- A collection of all the major Data Structures and Algorithms Articles along with their codes implemented in various programming languages. Ranked 8th in Digital Ocean's hacktoberfest and has more than 400 stars on GitHub.
- I have been involved in this project as one of the code maintainers and as an active contributer since the initial phase of this project.
- This project helped me to learn version control system (Git) and to get introduced to the open source community.
- ** Machine learning and Text summarization **
Published a review paper titled ``“A study on various techniques for automatic text summarization"`` in IEEE explore, 2017.
Worked on a mini project ``'Twitter Hate Speech Classification using eXtreme Gradient Boosted Decision Trees and LightGBM'``. This project was aimed to compare the traditional text categorization methods that fall within the machine learning paradigm (like SVM, Gaussian NB etc.) with the most recent machine learning algorithms which have become quite popular on the Machine Learning platforms like Kaggle (XGBoost and LightGBM).
Currently, I am working on developing an absractive text summarizer using Recurrent neural networks and attention mechanism.
