Abstract (maximum 500 words)

Editing in Wikipedia should be a happy experience. For most Wikipedians, random editing soon gives rise to a feeling of ineffectiveness. Dispute or unfortunate experiences in Wikipedia tend to discourage new editors. Enjoyable editing is vital as it keeps editors motivated and converts them into long term, productive and motivated editors. Some suggestions are made in this presentation which will help newbies or inexperienced editors to find focus, purpose and better satisfaction through editing.
