5000+ edits in Wikipedia,and still counting. I expect that with everybody's help I can edit much more. Knowledge is a thing that everyone likes to share. With this intention in my mind,I joined Wikipedia in August 2011,so that I can share my knowledge with the rest of the world. I live in Hooghly district of West Bengal in India. My time zone is +5:30 hrs from the GMT. I have been encouraging people to join Wikipedia. User:Deeponstar is a close friend of mine, who I encouraged to join. Also, User:Dazzlingstar090 is my sister. Yep, there's no meat puppetry going on here, I'm just encouraging to join. I am currently running a web blog by Blogger. You can access it here. Please add me to your circles if you have a Google+ account.

Wikipedia: Why I joined it

I was pretty much unfamiliar with Wikipedia until late 2008. The reason behind it was that I had no internet access then. I used my mobile to search for information on different topics and always found that Wikipedia was, for most times, the #1 result in Google. This tempted me to open a account in Wikipedia. But sadly I did not create any account in Wikipedia until 15th August, 2011. This was because I was personally busy at that moment. Soon after creating a account, I was a slow learner. Yes, I had made copyright violation with the second article, as I was not aware of the copyright policies, like most of the newbies. I wasn't much active in Agust, but my eagerness to contribute to Wikipedia led me to where I'm now. I have been reverting vandalism and creating articles, mostly stubs, a few DYKs and start class articles. You may contact me if you are a new editor and I'll definitely help. I also do some outreach work, encourage my family members and friends to create an account in Wikipedia and start contributing. As Jimbo says: "The sum of all human knowledge should be available to common people for free." Thanks all for your support! Dipankan (Have a chat?) 11:23, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

I know this might seems as a nasty thing to have on one's talk page. But that was really nice of your belated welcome wishing. Hope to be in touch with you! VIVEK RAI :  Friend?  11:38, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

You really need one of these. Mainly for your efforts to expand the encyclopedia, but also for expanding my list of lustrous objects over time! Thank you for the hard work which you have done here! TAP 16:36, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Hope you will not get discouraged from your RfA. You will be surely an admin in next 6 months. :) ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email 07:32, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Past is past.........get over it and take only positives with you.....I presume you learnt many things from your TSU said.....u could have become an admin if this was 2006 or 7....anyway....take it easy and move one...dont get discouraged..we need users like you who are friendly and helping..

StrikeEagle 07:12, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

I know that your RfA didnt go well and you wouldn't even have succeed. But as you stated in the closing sentence, don't let your spirits down. You'll be an admin for sure in next 1 year or some. You are a kind of editor who would have easily got admin rights in 2006 or 2005, but as the standards of wiki has gone high, it is tough to get through (for example; Education has improved in India, but also it has become tough to get adminssion in your favourite college). So do not worry and keep up the tempo and good work. Also take care that you dont repeate those mistakes and I see you as a very good admin in future TheSpecialUserTalkContributions* 07:01, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
