Wikimedia Taiwan’s statement on the actions of the Wikimedia Foundation on Chinese Wikipedia[edit]

On behalf of Wikimedia Taiwan, we would like to say that this is long overdue. For more than half a decade, good faith volunteers from Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland, and Taiwan have raised concerns about dangerous members of that organization, including in the Signpost (repeatedly). It is not the kind of threat that communities or even larger ones, like our wiki, can deal with entirely on their own. We have been having very exhausting years.

Now there is some hope. But we have a lot of work ahead of us as a volunteer community, and we call upon the Foundation to meet its commitment of support as we do. We need to rebuild an inclusive wiki that welcomes everyone from all places who wants to contribute to Chinese language Wikipedia in good faith. Many people have felt very unsafe for years, so restoring a shared sense of comfort will likely take a long time. Doing this work is very important to get back to focusing on knowledge and Wikipedia’s five pillars that should unite our community.

在此僅代表台灣維基媒體協會聲明,這個行動是遲來的努力。多年來,香港、中國大陸和台灣的用戶一再呼籲對該組織中的危險成員與行為的關切,包括但不僅止於之前於 Signpost 報導另一則報導)中所提及。這不是社群,或甚至整個中文維基,可以自行處理的威脅。這些年我們心力交瘁。
