The event was marked by a presentation on quick tools by Pavan Santhosh, Community Advocate and long time member of the Telugu Wikipedia community. He demonstrated the use of PrepBio, a tool that helps create infoboxes on biographical articles. “This make the process of editing and updating edits easier,” he said. He also spoke about Wiki ToDo, a tool that helps find articles with specific edits or improvements required. “This ensures that even new editors can contribute to quality improvement on wikis,” he pointed out. At the end of the session, the community members engaged in an activity that gave them a hands on insight into using these tools.
