Hi Harsh4101991, Thank you for the report! Is there a video to the talk you could link to in your report? We really appreciated the impacts and especially the report about the help of Khmer Wikipedians. Do you think it's a lesson that attending such meeting should be encouraged in order to support wikipedians meeting in area where it's hard to organize a full wikimedia Event? The committee will accept your report once we received all the documents. Thanks --Charles Andrès (WMCH) 17:49, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Charles
Other smaller wikipedia face a lot of technical problems related because they import templates, gadgets and CSS from EN Wikipedia. Due to certain missing elements, their wiki does not function according to the requirements. For example issues that I faced while dealing with the developers from Khmer were errors like numbers do not properly render in english and are automatically converted to Khmer. This leads to mathematical operations not working correctly because these templates were copied from EN Wiki. I provided them with a solution and taught them how to fix similar bugs and also some how to fix JavaScript and CSS. They were delighted after interacting with me, and in turn it gave me great pleasure in helping them.
Thus I would go on to suggest that it is very important for developers from smaller wikimedia to get help and guidance from other members during such similar events because organizing full stack events is not possible over there. So I agree with you and they also get encouragement. The guy from Khmer Wikipedia is right now fixing too many things. :)
I will send documents very soon. I am in constant contact with organiser of FOSSASIA regarding to Video Link. If it is available the I will put over there. Thanks --Harsh4101991 (talk) 22:00, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
