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 laptop (HP 655) with relatively poor performance. I have locally contributed over 73,000 edits, and many others on other Wikimedia projects, activity which I have started since 2009. I need a laptop more efficient, to better contribute to the Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, Commons, and Wikidata).

Affected projectsEdit

Add the existing Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, Commons, etc.) and language versions that you seek to impact with this equipment.

Work you're proud ofEdit

Show us (through links) some of your best Wikimedia work, on or off wiki, to help us get a sense for the kind of work you do. (no more than 3 or 4 links at most, please.)

You are encouraged to track the impact this equipment has helped you make. This encourages WMF to donate more hardware.

  • I received the laptop donated by the Wikimedia Foundation. I will post here the impact this fact has had on my work on WikiMedia projects. --Sîmbotin (talk) 18:58, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
