Supporting Indian Language Wikipedias Program/Support/uksharma3

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

I wish to withdraw this request as I am about to get an apple laptop in a few days. Therefore, remove my name in order to give chance to another deserving applicant. Thanks for all who supported my request.
I do not know the procedure to withdraw. May be this page could be deleted by an admin. --Uksharma3 (talk) 02:15, 5 February 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Support details[edit]

Support type[edit]

What type of support you need

  • Laptop YesY
  • Internet


Why do you need this support (Internet and/or laptop)?
The laptop I use now (Acer Aspire 4739Z) is more than 7 years old and it has defects. As the keyboard is not working, I use an external keyboard. The fan is noisy (was replaced two years ago). The battery has to be replaced.

Future activities[edit]

How will you use this in the next six months?
I am a senior citizen staying at home supported by my children. I contribute articles to both Tamil and English Wikipedia. When possible I upload images related to Tamil films to the Commons. I also manage a group on Facebook that is devoted to the hobby of listening to old Tamil film songs. As some persons who are directly or indirectly connected to the Tamil film industry are members in this group, it also serves me as a source to get information about old Tamil films that I use to create, develop or enhance articles in Wikipedia.

Community discussion and endorsements[edit]

Please keep the discussion friendly, and note number of endorsement may not be the only way to assess an application's merit
