Please tell us which existing Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, Commons, etc.) and language versions you are contributing to, and some of your best contribution towards the project and movement. Please add relevant Wiki/external link wherever applicable
I am a new contributor, as such I have only a few contribution to give here:
What type of support you need
Why do you need this support (Internet and/or laptop)
I am in a job where I don't get time to sit in front of a PC for the amount of time that I want to give to Wikipedia. Currently due to various reasons I cannot afford one. Editing on a basic smart phone is not really an easy thing. With a laptop at hand I would be able contribute whenever I can.
How will you use this in the next six months?
I would be contributing to the Bengali Wikipedia articles and templates related to language and linguistics only.
A lot of the articles, including the "Vital" ones, related to language/linguistics are stub or start class and the Bengali Wikipedia is missing a lot of important articles related to this field, which I would like to create and/or add content to, to increase their quality. The quantity of new articles would not be much as I would like to concentrate on the quality of the articles. The related templates in Bengali Wikipedia need a lot of working too. I also intend to contribute, albeit to a lesser amount, to Wikibooks in Bengali, concentrating on making books on different languages, and Wikidata.
Community discussion and endorsementsEdit
Please keep the discussion friendly, and note number of endorsement may not be the only way to assess an application's merit
Endorse His linguistic contributions have been quite helpful, previously on Tatoeba and now on Wikimedia projects. I look forward to expanding Wikidata item labels in Bengali with the terminology he uses. Mahir256 (talk) 16:04, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
