Welcome to Hong Kong. I'm Spring Roll Conan, or simply Conan (Chinese: 春卷柯南, Cantonese pronunciation: /tsʰɵ̄n ky̌n ɔ̄ nȁm/), a Wikimedian from HK. At the moment I am working in Chinese Wikipedia (Userpage) and Wikisource (Userpage), being the host of “Understanding the World” Collaboration Scheme in the Chinese Wikipedia, and preserving Chinese and Vietnamese classics in the Wikisource. In the future, I will like to work for the Wikimedia projects in Southeast Asian languages and Chinese minorities' languages (I am learning Vietnamese and Malay at the moment, but not ready to speak in these languages, unless a self-introduction).

Recently, I hope to gain support and listen to suggestions from Wikipedians around the world in order to make our work better. That's one of my objective for the attendance of Wikimania 2013, which is held in my home city. I intend to exchange viewpoints with my fellow Wikimedians and learn from the viewpoints. Furthermore, I would be glad to introduce a glimpse of Chinese Wikipedia and Wikisource (though there're attendees who know more than me), and learn from the experience of the development of Asian Wikimedia projects, as well as the current situation of these projects.

Being a Wikipedian, I am proud to be a man who bear responsibilities to strengthen the Wikimedia community and serve the global public (but of course, not only by me, and also you). I look for support from my colleagues in different Wikimedia projects in order to improve the context quality and quantity of the Chinese Wikipedia and Wikisource, as well as achieving our target to make human knowledge available for everyone - not only for the rich people and those who speak in languages which takes a privileged position in the language policy.

See you in Hong Kong!

Dear colleagues, staff of the Wikimedia Foundation, and those who cares about the development of Wikimedia (in Asia/ China),

In June 2013, Edward Snowden, who used to work for CIA and National Security Agency (NSA) of USA, became a whistleblower. According to documents provided by him, NSA launched the XKeyscore program, which enables NSA employee to access to the emails, web browsing records, instant messaging records... without permission. Wikimedia projects are seemed to be a target of this program, and the matter makes some Wikimedian pushed a motion to make HTTPS as the default protocol of security. The Wikimedia Foundation (abbreviated as ) finally accepted their suggestions and decided to redirect HTTP links of Wikimedia project sites to those HTTPS links from 16:00 of the 21st of August (UTC), in the sake of the privacy of users.

However, since June 2013, the HTTPS link of Chinese Wikipedia is banned in the People's Republic of China (abbreviated as PRC as below), when the HTTP link is not censored. Nevertheless, Wikipedians in Mainland China can still "climb the wall" (ie. use VPN, proxy server, or other software used to escape the Internet censorship in the PRC) to access the free encyclopedia. But some IP address of proxy server is prevented to edit in order to prevent robot vandalism. Wikipedians in the mainland may have to apply for rights of IP block exemption if they wished to continue their works (administrators and sysops get this right automatically).

Here is the consequences of the decision made by WMF: HTTPS link will set as default site of the Chinese Wikipedia. As the PRC authority continue to block access for HTTPS link of Chinese Wikipedia, Mainlander or Wikipedian will have to "climb the wall" to gain access of the HTTPS link. Under the policy of the ban of IP addresses of proxy servers, Mainlander can't create new account of the encyclopedia (no whether that is the Chinese version or editions in other languages). Those mainlanders who are enthusiastic in joining Wikipedia (an free, open encyclopedia) may choose to go abroad and spend money unreasonably. Other users who don't have the rights of IP block exemption can't edit Chinese Wikipedia also. Only 200-300 users can edit the encyclopedia as they did before. There will be no more new editors from the Mainland, old user may quit due to different reasons, Wikipedian community in the Mainland China is posed under a great threat. Though we heard that WMF will discuss the issue internally, we have never being acknowledged of what will the WMF do. The future of Mainland Wikipedian community remains unclear.

It should not be said that Mainlanders have done nothing for the Wikimedia. They tried their very best in editing and protecting Wikipedia. As what we actually saw, one of our colleagues remain committed to handle affairs related to Chinese Wikipedia an its official Weibo account (Weibo is the equivalent of Twitter in China). He have done a tremendous job. Some donors donate money to the WMF proactively in order to continue the operation of Wikipedia ,though they know that they will face difficulties to visit the site in the PRC. Some Wikipedians from the Mainland strive for improving the quality of Wikipedia articles - one of them translated lots of articles about the law of the USA and make them to appear in the Did you know? column of Chinese Wikipedia. Another one took photos for his Alma mater, search for news about his Alma mater, and make his Alma mater's article into a good article. Can you tolerate the fall of a Wikipedian community like this?

各位同工、維基媒體基金會各位職工、各位關注(亞洲/中國)維基社群發展的人:

曾為美國中情局和國安局辦事的斯諾登在2013年6月洩密。根據由他提供的文件,國安局推行XKeyscore計劃,使得國安局僱員可以在未經批准的情況下的取得網民的電郵收發、網頁瀏覽和即時聊天記錄。維基媒體計劃看似成為了這個計劃其中一個重點監視目標,故此有維基人要求維基媒體站點使用HTTPS作為預設的加密協定。維基媒體基金會最後接納了他們的建議,並決定自8月21日下午4點(UTC)起,把維基媒體站點的HTTP鏈接重定向到HTTPS鏈接,以保障用戶私隱。

然而,在中華人民共和國,中文維基百科的HTTPS鏈接自2013年6月起被屏蔽(HTTP鏈接仍可如常瀏覽)。住在中國內地的維基人仍然可以翻牆(使用VPN、代理服務器或者其他用以避過中國當局網絡審查的軟件)瀏覽維基百科。但是維基媒體站點為防止機器人破壞而禁止人們使用代理服務器IP地址編輯。這個政策導致他們不能使用代理IP編輯。內地維基人為了繼續編輯,有可能需要申請IP封禁例外權(行政員、管理員可以自動獲得IP封禁例外權)。

基金會的決定,影響如下:由於中國當局繼續封鎖中文維基百科的HTTPS鏈接,所以內地人民/維基人若要瀏覽維基百科,必須翻牆。在代理服務器IP地址被禁止編輯的情況下,內地人民不能在內地創建新的維基百科帳戶(不論是在中文維基百科還是其他語言的維基百科)。如此,熱情滿滿的內地人為了在「自由、免費、開放的」維基百科註冊賬戶,就只能耗費大量金錢出國,作出不合理的消費。其他沒有IP封禁例外權得用戶也不能登入、編輯。這樣一來,就只有200幾人能在中國內地如常編輯中文維基百科了。如此的話,新血枯竭,舊人或者會因為種種原因而無心戀戰,在這個形勢底下,中國內地維基社群的發展面對著一個巨大的挑戰。儘管我們聽說過基金會內部將會討論此一問題的對策,但是我們還沒知道基金會會怎樣做。內地維基社群的前景依然不明朗。

內地人在維基媒體並不是全無貢獻,成就。他們為了參加維基百科,保護維基百科,鞠躬盡瘁。我們都親眼看到,有內地維基人每天都抽時間處理和中文維基百科及其官方微博帳號(其中一個推廣維基百科的工具)有關的事務,勞苦功高;有的內地善長人翁雖然知道在內地瀏覽維基百科的時候會遇到障礙,但是為了讓維基百科能夠繼續運作下去,主動向基金會捐款。有內地維基人為了改善條目內容而奮鬥不懈,其中一位在一個月之內翻譯多篇關於美國法制的條目,使之成為推薦的新條目;另一位則為母校校園拍照,搜羅與母校相關的新聞報導,終使其母校的條目成為優良條目。類似的例子還有很多。這麼的一個社群,最終卻要落得花果飄零的下場,試問各位於心何忍?


中國內地維基社群需要您的支持。您們的支持集合起來,即能。

然而,在中华人民共和国,中文维基百科的HTTPS链接自2013年6月起被屏蔽(HTTP链接仍可如常浏览)。住在中国内地的维基人仍然可以翻墙(使用VPN丶代理服务器或者其他用以避过中国当局网络审查的软件)浏览维基百科。但是维基媒体站点为防止机器人破坏而禁止人们使用代理服务器IP地址编辑。这个政策导致他们不能使用代理IP编辑。内地维基人为了继续编辑,有可能需要申请IP封禁例外权(行政员丶管理员可以自动获得IP封禁例外权)。

基金会的决定,影响如下:由於中国当局继续封锁中文维基百科的HTTPS链接,所以内地人民/维基人若要浏览维基百科,必须翻墙。在代理服务器IP地址被禁止编辑的情况下,内地人民不能在内地创建新的维基百科帐户(不论是在中文维基百科还是其他语言的维基百科)。如此,热情满满的内地人为了在「自由丶免费丶开放的」维基百科注册账户,就只能耗费大量金钱出国,作出不合理的消费。其他没有IP封禁例外权得用户也不能登入丶编辑。这样一来,就只有200几人能在中国内地如常编辑中文维基百科了。如此的话,新血枯竭,旧人或者会因为种种原因而无心恋战,在这个形势底下,中国内地维基社群的发展面对着一个巨大的挑战。尽管我们听说过基金会内部将会讨论此一问题的对策,但是我们还没知道基金会会怎样做。内地维基社群的前景依然不明朗。

内地人在维基媒体并不是全无贡献,成就。他们为了参加维基百科,保护维基百科,鞠躬尽瘁。我们都亲眼看到,有内地维基人每天都抽时间处理和中文维基百科及其官方微博帐号(其中一个推广维基百科的工具)有关的事务,劳苦功高;有的内地善长人翁虽然知道在内地浏览维基百科的时候会遇到障碍,但是为了让维基百科能够继续运作下去,主动向基金会捐款。有内地维基人为了改善条目内容而奋斗不懈,其中一位在一个月之内翻译多篇关於美国法制的条目,使之成为推荐的新条目;另一位则为母校校园拍照,搜罗与母校相关的新闻报导,终使其母校的条目成为优良条目。类似的例子还有很多。这麽的一个社群,最终却要落得花果飘零的下场,试问各位於心何忍?
