1. What is the change that you are trying to bring about and why is this important.

Adiutor is used on the Turkish and Uzbek Wikipedias and is currently being adapted on the Georgian and Azerbaijani Wikipedias.

The tool was first made available on Turkish Wikipedia on 30 May 2022 and is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License (CC BY-SA 3.0) and the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL).

I have been developing this gadget for about 1 year without any charge, but I need funding to continue development and adapt it for use in Turkic languages within 6 months. Adiutor is designed specifically with the needs of Wikipedia editors in mind; it helps them to quickly create discussional or pending deletion requests; give opinions and comments on candidate pages for deletion; create version suppression requests; respond quickly to advisors thanks to the advisor module; keep records of comments in a log; check the copyright status of article content, etc. This tool can also be used in mobile versions of Wikipedia projects.

My Project will enhance the Wikipedia editing experience by giving users more options. I am also committed to using only open-source software when creating new features so that they can be freely shared among all users. I also plan to actively interact with other contributors so that we can collaborate closely together during the development phase.

I believe that my project will help improve the Wikipedia editing experience by providing more tools to users.

2. Describe your main approaches or strategies to achieve these changes and why you think they will be effective.

To improve the user experience by providing users who have already developed various processes with a comfortable user experience for their repetitive processes. I believe my project will help improve the Wikipedia editing experience by giving users more tools.

3. What are the activities you will be developing and delivering as part of these approaches or strategies?

Adiutor is used in the Turkish and Uzbek Wikipedias and is currently in the process of being adapted in the Georgian and Azerbaijani Wikipedias. First of all, I will start with the improvement and development of the existing features, then I will exchange ideas by interviewing other users and their experiences with the tool, as a result of all the data obtained at the end of this process, I will update Adiutor again and release the new version, after the new version is released, I will take the first steps to adapt Adiutor to other Turkic languages by contacting other project users from the Adiutor page in other Wikipedia projects to adapt Adiutor to other languages.
