Explain your planEdit


One of the fellow editors have contacted me recently regarding submitting a request for a laptop , he learned of the issues with my laptop that started in Feb 2017.

I have signed up for Wikipedia in 2009. ever since i owned a laptop in 2012 i have doubled my contributions on the website, i have more than 26,000 contributions on Arabic Wikipedia, and more than 2000 Contributions on Commons, so far I have created more than 700 articles on Wikipedia, 3 of which are good articles i wrote from scratch. in Feb 2017 the motherboard of my laptop have gone bad, i tried to to fix it twice but with no success whatsoever, as a result of that incident my contributions on Wikipedia have declined, i now rely Because dealing with deletion, undeleation and moving request as well as creating templates is more complicated from mobile than it from the laptop. As a sysop i have changed group membership for more than 300 users out of 2000 permission requests that i have reviewed and as it known that dealing with such requests requires checking of user contributions and the created articles, I find myself sometimes using my Brother’s Laptop so i can do my job, i’d appreciate your helping me with a new laptop,In order to help me to contribute actively and continuously on Arabic wikipedia because arabic content is very poor in comparison with other languages content.

  1. Hello, I would strongly endorse Badarin to receive a gifted good laptop. Badarin is an editor and sysop in Arabic Wikipedia since 8 years, and a good contributor in Commons. With more than 27,000 edits and a couple of hundreds of articles, Badarin's contributions are of great importance. Not only that, but he also manages the official social media pages of Arabic Wikipedia. With a poor laptop, Badarin suffers a lot. I personally know he could give more and do better if he could get a better laptop. it would be great if you could consider this request of donating him a laptop. Thanks. --Mervat Salman (talk) 19:24, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
