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.

台灣維基媒體協會針對 維基媒體基金會關於中文維基百科的行動之聲明[edit]

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。

現在的處置,讓我們覺得終於有了一些希望。但作為志願者組織,我們仍有很多工作要做,並希望基金會能大力支持。我們需要重建一個具有包容性的維基百科,歡迎來自所有地區,願意真誠貢獻中文知識的參與者。這幾年來,許多參與者感到不安,要恢復原本平和的氛圍,需要相當長時間的努力。這個工作非常重要,有助於我們把心力集中在知識,以及團結我們社群的維基百科的五大支柱上。
