Hi!

This is Vipul Naik. I completed my B.Sc. (Hons) in Mathematics at the Chennai Mathematical Institute in Siruseri which is just off Chennai, India and my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Chicago. I currently work in a mixed data science, programming, and customer success role at LiftIgniter, a machine learning/data science startup in San Francisco. My website is vipulnaik.com. All edits I make are in my personal capacity and not on behalf of any of the aforementioned organizations.

For more on my Wikipedia editing, see my site page about Wikipedia, my site page about sponsored Wikipedia editing, and the list of all pages I have created, with pageviews across the years.

Other account with about two dozen edits[edit]

I recently noticed that I have another account Vipulnaik with about two dozen edits, mostly before 2014, and since then, all on mobile devices. After looking into it a bit more, I discovered that this account got created as part of my global Wikimedia account (the global account with username Vipul wasn't available). I didn't intend to use this account for editing the English Wikipedia, but a few times (probably after I uploaded pictures to Commons) I accidentally made edits through this account.

I also appear to have logged in using this account on my phone a few times, so some mobile edits show up as being from this account.

[edit]

I have been running an experiment with sponsored Wikipedia editing since April 2015. As of March 8, 2017, I am suspending this operation, pending review of it at COIN and ANI. I will update this page if and when the status changes.

For a most up-to-date list of people I have sponsored to create Wikipedia content, and links to the specific pieces of work I have sponsored, see this repository or this portal. For a list of new articles currently being worked on, or ones where I am trying to find people to work on them, see this page.

You might also be interested in Issa Rice, one of the people who makes edits and improvements to Wikipedia, some of which I pay for. You can also see my payment list to him (or a more information-rich version thereof).

Permission to cite and reference (in on-Wikipedia discussions) any stuff published under my name off-wiki[edit]

You have permission to reference and quote any content published by me, that is identified as being by me in any of the following ways:

  • Any publicly accessible activity by me using my Facebook account (this includes public posts and comments on others' public posts)
  • Any content under the domain vipulnaik.com or any of its subdomains (including contractwork.vipulnaik.com)
  • Any content in GitHub repositories under my account
  • Any content I published on these online venues: LessWrong with username VipulNaik, Effective Altruism Forum with username vipulnaik, Open Borders: The Case with username vipulnaik, and Quora with username Vipul Naik. You can also use any of the accounts I list as mine on the connect page on my website.

The content under these accounts may not reflect my current views, but I will not consider it outing of my identity if you reference or link to any of this material.

If you find other online content that you think might be by me but aren't sure, please feel free to reach out to me on-wiki or off-wiki (via email at vipulnaik1@gmail.com or on Facebook) to confirm.

This is to address concerns people might have with OUTING when discussing my off-wiki content in connection with my on-wiki activity.

List of people I've paid[edit]

Note that I am not responsible for all edits of these people. The links below provide context on what edits I've paid for -- you should not assume that any edit by somebody in this list was requested or paid for by me.

To get a combined list of all contributions across all workers, see here. This includes tasks not specific to Wikipedia as well. You can sort the table by the task type and look for "Wikipedia page creation" and "Wikipedia page update", plus other task types that have "Wikipedia" in the name.

You can cross-check this list against the programmatically generated list here.

List of pages I have explicitly sponsored creation of or contributions to[edit]

Note that this list does not include pages edited by me, and does not list me as a contributor even if I have edited the page. It also does not list edits made to the pages by people I pay, if I did not pay them. The list includes all edits I've paid for, including private ones.

To obtain more details on individual pieces of work funded, completion date, and payment, see here.

Note that the edits I sponsored may not show up in the most recent revision of the page, and some pages where I sponsored edits may have been deleted, merged, or redirected.

With the exception of the timeline of Facebook, all timeline articles are mirrored at (and will be improved at) the timelines wiki. This includes, but is not limited to, the timelines that have been deleted.

Some other content is mirrored here and here; however, these mirrors may not be up to date.
