Support details[edit]

Support type[edit]

What type of support you need

  • Chromebook
  • Internet


Why do you need this support (Internet and/or Chromebook)

  • I have edited nearly 47 articles using mobile phone which was a very difficult task  for me . If I had my own system I would have contributed more articles to Wikipedia . Using mobile phones SVG Files can't be edited since it needs a seperate application called inkscape which cannot be installed in mobile phones .
  • In the period of one year I achieved 4,000 edits in Kannada Wikipedia , only by using cellphone .But if I had my own system it could be easier for me to contribute more number of articles in Wikipedia and as well to upload images to Wikicommons.

Do you have a working laptop? No.

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?

  • Increasing the number of SVG Files in Kannada Indic language is one of my aim which cannot be fulfilled by editing in mobile phones.So this hardware support will be the strenuous one.
  • I will edit articles in languages like Kannada , Hindi and Tulu so that I can be one of the active contributor.
  • I will use the source to edit actively in all the wikiprojects .
  • I will support my wiki friends to uplift their interest in Wikipedia.
