Out of the total 15 participants who signed up for the event, 3 were non-Punjabi.

  • Gurbakhshish chand did the most of number of edits and played a major role in categorizing pages.

  • Jashan1994 had only about 60 Global contributions before the event and now she has 229 edits.

Learnings edit

  • We got to learn that many Wikipedians did not know that they can contribute in a number of ways rather than just creating new articles. While creating articles requires a substantial amount of time, it takes very less time to make small yet meaningful contribution of categorizing pages.
