Just to be clear about terminology and geography, does "Far East Asia Region" mean the Far East or East Asia? Xie xie. :) Anna Koval (WMF) (talk) 17:39, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

To be precise, our scope covers

  • Users and/or User groups in Japan
  • Users and/or User groups in China (PRC)
  • Users and/or User groups in Korea (ROK)
  • WMHK
  • WMTW

ASEAN (formerly known as SEATO) is an international organization in the South East Asia region. Therefore, SEA is rather the correct official name for the geographical area. If ASEAN is used, it might mislead people to think that our meeting has something to do with the organization or governments.

In a similar vein to ASEAN+3 [1], you may wan to rename this workshop to SEA+3 or SEA+CJK. --Taweethaも (talk) 07:13, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes, thank you Taweethaも, I think it's a nice suggestion. I have redirect the name of this workshop. Let's discuss further with what we can do together. --Liang(WMTW) (talk) 00:26, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Since this page is already on the Site Notice of Chinese Wikipedia, I think it's better to have some localized versions so people can read it in their native languages, so I added some translation tags in the page. --Ted Chien (talk) 02:11, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
