Explain your planEdit

Tell us about how you contribute currently, and how you would contribute if WMF were to gift a used laptop to you.

I currently use a cheap and old laptop (Asus) with relatively poor performance. I have until now (in 4 years since I have this username) more than 47.000 edits on roWikipedia, more than 17.000 edits on Wikidata and more than 1.000 images uploaded on Commons. I wrote more quality and good articles in the field of literature (for exemple: ro:Jurnalul Annei Frank is one of the most documented article from all Wikipedias about The Diary of Anne Frank and a quality article on Romanian Wikipedia). Besides my daily work, I patrol the recent changes page as much as I can and I improve a lot of new articles by adding infoboxes and missing informations in Wikidata.

I have won the romanian version of the contest ro:Wikipedia:Wikimedia CEE Spring 2016 (using my old username ro:User:Haptokar) and I was ranked 3rd in 2018 (see ro:Wikipedia:Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018). I wrote articles about every community of CEE Spring 2018 and I have therefore received the honour of being inscribed on Hall of Fame of the contest (see Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018/Hall of Fame).

Unfortunately, my laptop's performances decrease, and I have to wait seconds and sometimes minutes to save the results of my work. Besides that the battery overheats and I need frequently to shut down the laptop for cooling. I need a laptop more efficient, to better contribute to the Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, Commons, and Wikidata).

  5. One of the greatest contributors that Romanian Wikipedia ever had, his articles are some of the best from our Wiki. His dedication to the project is vital to the project, especially taking into account the fact that ro:Wiki has a small pool of editors.Ionutzmovie (talk) 08:56, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
