This is a list of Wikipedians from India or of Indian origin (with declared nationality), with more than 5000 edits in English language Wikipedia, ordered by total number of edits. The edits in all namespaces are counted. The primary source of this list is Wikipedia:List of Wikipedians by number of edits as of 00:04, 02 January 2015 (UTC).

Description

While nationality of editors is not important and everyone is encouraged to edit any article in Wikipedia, this list is prepared just to encourage and enhance positive collaboration between Wikipedians from a particular geographical area or also others contributing to articles related to the same. You can see also Category:Indian Wikipedians, Category:Wikipedians interested in India and Category:Wikipedians in India and its subcategories.

Please feel free to add your name to the below list if it is missing and above 5000 edits. Please note that only those Wikipedians featured in WP:EDITS list are sorted by number because the rest of the list may not be complete. It is likely that the stats of those not on WP:EDITS list may not be updated frequently. Free feel to update your own stats on the page to latest count.

To request that your name be absent from future updates of the list, please add your name here.

Caveats

The list is a reference summary only. It should be taken with a large grain of salt and not used as a measure of individual editors. There are many reasons why a total number of edits usually does not indicate quality of work, quality of editor, or significance of contributions.

  1. A number of Indian Wikipedians use a pseudo name and do not choose to display their nationality.
  2. Due to a bug, the edit counts reported by Wikipedia are not always reliable for editors with high edit counts.
  3. Some editors use automated tools (bots and assisted systems) capable of fixing many simple errors per minute (spelling, links, etc.), or that place many informational and other notices in a short time, whilst others work on tasks where these tools are not useful, such as content creation and reworking, manual copyright review, and editorial dispute resolution.
  4. Some bot users route their bot edits through separate bot accounts whilst others include them in their own edits.
  5. Others may use one or more alternative accounts to segregate their contributions for various other reasons.
  6. Many editors who are high on the list perform routine tasks that require less time per edit; conversely, users who create a number of long new pages or make major additions might easily spend a week or more undertaking research before writing any content, and appear much lower on the list.
  7. Some editors use the preview button until they are content with their edit; others habitually save a succession of small changes on the way.
  8. Earlier versions of the list listed contributions to the article space separately. The current list counts the total number of edits, including talk pages.
  9. Many people edit without logging in at all, and many anonymous non-logged in editors regularly make valuable and well-established edits and a huge contribution.
  10. Many Wikipedians work in areas where edits are less prominent, for example, email-mediated matters such as arbcom-l, mediation, unblock-l, or services such as checkuser.
  11. Consequently, edit count alone does not directly correlate with the effort put into improving Wikipedia. Of course, we would like as many people as possible to get involved, including those whose only edit may be to fix a simple typo. Contributors not on this list provide something like half of all edits on Wikipedia. Everyone's contributions are equally welcome.

Potential candidates to the list

Are you an active editor, but less than 5000 edits on English Wikipedia? These are the editors who are potential candidates to the List of Indian Wikipedians by number of edits. Add your name here if you are interested. NOTE: The potential candidates list has not been updated with latest edit counts.

The list

The update of this list, done in mid-November 2014 is based on the earlier list of users plus the users who are within Category:Indian Wikipedians and edits are in the top 10,000 as per Wikipedia:List of Wikipedians by number of edits. It has been generated in semi-automated manner using above two criteria (and then Anonymous requests have been removed).

'Remarks / Specialisation' has not been updated since 2011. 'Status (last known)' has been updated ONLY for those where earlier inactive items have been definitely active after 2011 OR are definitely inactive since 2011 by random check.
