Generalize and Rename to Eighty Sixed[edit]

As referenced on wikipedia-l [1]; we should generalize this page to include blocks in other places, or create a category to include similar pages.

There must be a better name than Wikimedia blocks ;) here 05:03, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks Anthere, fantastic. here 16:49, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Stats from wikipedia-l[edit]

OK, I've done some more calculations. From the 33 users with the most edits before 30 days ago, 36.4% (12) were primarily users of Traditional Chinese.

Percentage of edits made by primary TC users before 30 days ago was 31.1%.

So, edits by people who used primarily Simplified Chinese went from 67.4% down to 55.0%.

Geographical breakdown: 57.6% (19) Mainlanders; 21.2% (7) Taiwanese; 12.1% (4) Hong Kongers; 06.1% (2) Canadian. 03.0% (1) unknown.

One Canadian simplified, one Canadian traditional.

Geographical breakdown of edits: 65.9% (178232) Mainland; 15.5% (42040) Taiwanese; 11.8% (31981) Hong Kong+er; 05.2% (14099) Canadian; - 03.7% (9974) Traditional in Canada (70.7% of Canadian total) - 01.5% (4125) Simplified in Canada (29.3% of Canadian total) 01.5% (4022) unknown.

So again, a fall in Simplified users.

But keep in mind that these edit counts are from the beginning of zhwp until 30 days ago, so it's not nessecarily a short-term trend.
