My address at the Fourth World Hindi Conference,2017. I spoke on the significance of Hindi Wikipedia as an encyclopedia and how every language enthusiast can be part its further expansion.

Hello. My name is Muzammil. I am mainly active on Hindi-Urdu and English Wikipedias besides Wikimedia Commons. I also write blog posts for Wikimedia Foundation interviewing various communities, profiling leading Wikimedians, reporting events, etc.

Some stuff related to me posted by othersEdit

SignpostEdit

  • On advocating internet freedom, Muzammil writes: "Although I am all for it, I gave it a lower priority because of the political overtone and the fear that pushing it too much may jeopardize core Wikipedia objectives in some geographic locations."
  • On forbidding paid editing, Muzammil writes: "we should stop paid editing for promotion or those edits which forward some agenda – ideological or political." James: "The WMF has forbidden non-disclosed paid editing. It should now help enforce this. Not all types of paid editing should be banned." He also points to the relevance of engineering to improve editor experience to attracting and retaining female editors and those in the global south.
