Please nominate Wikimedians contributing to Indian language projects here. We would like to feature as many Wikimedians from all the languages and regions. Once we get nominations and no reasonable objections for them, we will proceed to contact the Wikimedians and get the content for Featured Wikimedian section in home page. This effort is intended to recognize existing editors and thereby motivating more such editors to enrol. So, in that spirit, lengthy discussions on how exactly one becomes qualified to become a featured Wikimedian can be avoided :) If some one has more than 6 months of continuous activity with 1000+ edits and has been noted by his or her peers, that is a good benchmark to recognize him or her.

You may follow the format below to nominate.

Nominating Urdu Wikipedian

User:محمد شعیب from Maharashtra, India.

The user is a bureaucrat.

A resolution to this effect was passed here.

However, it was not implemented because the user refused to share his picture for blog, though agreed to respond to any queries.

In the recent past, Satyam Mishra's profile blog on Wikimedia India website was published without his picture. --Hindustanilanguage 01:48, 22 September 2017 (IST)

T. Shrinivasan

I would like to nominate T. Shrinivasan, the maker of OCR4Wikisource script and many other tools for the use of Indic Wikipedians. OCR4Wikisource was the game changer which added a million pages to Indian Wikisource projects. He is also involved in Tamil Wikipedia outreach and participated in the 2017 Wikimedia Hackathon. --Ravi (talk) 15:56, 9 May 2018 (IST)

@User:Ravidreams Hi Ravi, thanks for the suggestion. We'll consider the nomination. Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talk) 17:11, 25 May 2018 (IST)
