A group photo with the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) students at Hyderabad after a one-day workshop on editing Wikipedia in Indian languages. The event took place on 24 August 2013. It was attended by young participants who formed a small but proactive group of students who eagerly tried to register their first edits in five different Indian language wikipedias - Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi and Kannada
Hello. My name is Muzammil. I am mainly active on Hindi-Urdu and English Wikipedias besides Wikimedia Commons. I also write blog posts for Wikimedia Foundation interviewing various communities, profiling leading Wikimedians, reporting events, etc.
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.
