Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
As one can see, most of Wikipedia contributors feel tired after around one year of active contribution to the projects. I even know friends of mime and some elders who has stopped volunteering for Wikipedia projects. Although some of contributors leave the movement, I still give my time to take care of the encyclopedia. In this presentation you are going to discover things that still give me the energy to contribute to projects
