Support details[edit]

Support type[edit]

What type of support you need

  • Chromebook : No, Not needed
  • Internet : Yes, needed


Why do you need this support (Internet)

  • I could not reply back to the readers/prospective writers or readers over Wikipedia discussions page and social media platforms on time due to limited connectivity.
  • Due to poor internet connection, many times long written articles get lost and I had to re-write everything from the beginning. This can get solved.
  • By getting fast Internet connectivity I can create/improve more contents, upload more photos/videos to Commons, reply queries of the readers on social media platforms in minimum to zero latency and do many more contributions for Odia language and communities.

Do you have a working laptop?

  • Yes, I have.

Had you received the support in the first iteration of Project Tiger?

  • No

Future activities[edit]

How will you use this in the next six months? I will:

  • improve/create more articles on Odia Wikipedia.
  • Promote more on social media.
  • Upload more photos on Commons.
  • Participate more on queries and discussions.
  • And many more activities, I will update my utilization reports Bimonthly on this page.
