About me

Born and raised in Dhaka, Bangladesh, have been around in this movement since June 17, 2009, started contributing with my volunteer account and under that I hold administrator and bureaucrat rights in some Wikimedia projects and a global steward flag. I usually work on Bangla Wikipedia and Wiktionary, Commons, and Meta-Wiki and I consider all of them as my primary wikis, but my home wiki is Bangla Wikipedia.

Other than my on-wiki activities, I am also associated with Wikimedia Bangladesh, an approved Wikimedia chapter that focuses on spreading Wikimedia movement in all over Bangladesh. I helped created this chapter and in my volunteer capacity, I serve as a founding member and secretary of this chapter, as well as one of the two chapter contacts.

My work

As a fellow I am currently working on increasing editor engagement in smaller projects, focusing on Bangla Wikipedia as for starter. My current work goals include increasing editor retention rate in small Wikipedias as well as attracting new editors by developing a basic and more welcoming editing interface and helping system specially for small Wikimedia projects.

Disclaimer: I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I intend to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
