Good work accomplished is a reward in itself.

About me

I am an Academician, Content Developer, Interviewer, Wikimedia Blogger and Translator. Here's my central userpage . I am Administrator on Urdu Wikipedia and reviewer on both English and Hindi Wikipedia. I was part of several outreach events. Also, I usually blog for Wikimedia Foundation showcasing different Wikimedia communities, leading Wikimedians and events.

My work

I am a strong votary of the free knowledge movement and love to contribute in it although my personal efforts may seem but a drop in the pond. But as the pebble of our intentions creates ripples of goodness and love that spread across not only the pond but to the vast oceans beyond, so may peace one day prevail on Earth. (echoing a quote shared on an online forum.)

Listing of my interview in a Google doc[edit]

Signpost[edit]

  • On advocating internet freedom, Muzammil writes: "Although I am all for it, I gave it a lower priority because of the political overtone and the fear that pushing it too much may jeopardize core Wikipedia objectives in some geographic locations."
  • On forbidding paid editing, Muzammil writes: "we should stop paid editing for promotion or those edits which forward some agenda – ideological or political." James: "The WMF has forbidden non-disclosed paid editing. It should now help enforce this. Not all types of paid editing should be banned." He also points to the relevance of engineering to improve editor experience to attracting and retaining female editors and those in the global south.
