My Experiences while Editing Wikipedia
I have been using wikipedia since long as many of us and have edited various articles which i thought needed improvement and currently have more than 200 live edits on wikipedia. I have seen many of my edits being deleted for various reasons and i can safely say that there are users out there who continuously watch each edit and if its not up to the mark or violates any policies the edit is deleted within no time. I am currently watching articled related to Kashipur, Uttarakhand, Personalites from Uttarakhand and various topics of my intrest. The latest article i contributed is on Shree Moteshwar (Bheemashankar) Mahadev Temple. below is list of my Top 5 Edited/Contributed Articles
