Happy new year,
I have been contributing regularly to Wikipedia for the past one year. Although not very impressive, I can claim that I have fairly decent quality edits. Contributing from mobile to Wikipedia, however, causes problems in many cases, and sometimes those problems create many complications. I do not have any laptop or desktop. In this case I need a laptop to contribute to Wikipedia properly. But now with the slightest financial problems, it is not possible for me. So I am requesting a low-cost laptop to the Wikimedia community (enough to be a good old-fashioned laptop donation if it works properly). The facilities I may get if I have a laptop which are not available (or not easy) with smartphone are:
- Browse through the references in order to check verifiability and add them in appropriate place.
- Editing long pages without freezing the screen (i.e CPU freezing problem)
- Patrolling recent changes and make appropriate edits without complexity.
- Using Visual Editor easily
- Using Content Translation easily without erroneous typo.....etc
Add the existing Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, Commons, etc.) and language versions that you seek to impact with this equipment.
- Bangla Wikipedia
- Online and Offline Wikimedia Programmes
