Support type


What type of support you need

  • Laptop - A good configuration with speed.
  • Internet - A basic 3G Internet pack of 500 MB or more per day would be sufficient.



Why do you need this support (Internet and/or laptop) I took lot of (10,000 above)Photographs. It's usually to next generation from old world. So i want upload and conttibute to that. I use internet with system in my neighbours and office. That system and interneMy internet pack doesn't have enough speed and sufficient data, and whenever I don't have sufficient data, I can't contribute further. Note: I am not received any supports from Wikimedia with the help of Tamil wiki community. My contributions at that time were as normal and was appreciated by Tamil Wiki community. This support when i will get i do more contribution and serve with full encourage to the Wikipedia. Now, I require it first time.
