Meetup/Hong Kong/Asian Month 2017

November 2017 is the Wikipedia Asian Month, an online editathon which aims to improve coverage of Wikipedia concerning Asian countries and territories.

All Wikimedians (regardless of experience, but a registered account is required) are welcome. Refreshments provided. Join us to do our best!

Discussion 討論區 edit

See discussions on Chinese Wikipedia.

@春卷柯南: Thank you so much for the invite! I am more than happy to help out! I have some questions:

  • 1. Would it be okay if I attend the training session and provide help in English to those who need help in that language (for non-Chinese/Cantonese speakers)?
  • 2. I would like to invite university students in Shenzhen to the edit-a-thon, but they may have difficulty getting Wikipedia accounts due to the Great Firewall situation. Is it okay that I invite them, and if so, should I try to have them sign-up in Shenzhen or is it okay to have them sign-up upon arrival in Hong Kong?
  • 3. If the students come with me to the training session, I can give them help in English. Are any other volunteers in the training session knowledgeable in Putonghua? Would it be useful if I ask a student who does know Cantonese to translate between Cantonese and Putonghua?

Thank you! WhisperToMe (talk) 16:20, 18 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]

@WhisperToMe: Thanks for your interest to attend the event and to provide assistance.
  1. You're welcome to help us. I think that we're able to provide assistance for Cantonese, English, Mandarin Chinese (and even Japanese) speakers. For the Q&A session, you can ask us in any languages listed above.
  2. It's okay for them to register an account on a Wikimedia site not blocked in Mainland China (it seems that blocked Chinese, Cantonese, Uyghur, Wu and Gan Wikipedia and Chinese Wikinews is blocked). If they can't, it's fine; I'm able to register accounts for anyone who has no Wikimedia accounts. --Spring Roll Conan ( Teahouse | Contributions ) 12:02, 19 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Feedback 參與後感 edit

  • 感謝柯南願意重整維基社群網絡,也要感謝Kris和白彌、1233等各位維基同工的協助,大家的能力及長處也有不同,自己在搜集資料的能力較强,也有「幕前演出」的自信,但我真是用得維基十多年,做了大家眼中的「元老」,慣用原始碼而不懂用視覺化編輯,自己又快人快語,大家也許不明白,請大家見諒!盼大家能繼續分工合作,讓維基做得更好!--TYC (talk) 18:04, 25 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]
