Notice

Wikipedia appears to be blocked now in China. I will probably not be back unless this changes. – Anna 06:35, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

Update

Hi! This is Anna. This text was pasted here by kind and trusted editor Super-Oshwah via Internet Relay Chat request. Sorry I've been away. Wikipedia is blocked now in China. I hope it returns in July. I will check periodically. I do not want to say any goodbyes just yet. I may return.

I will continue to upload images and video and make edits to Commons. That site is not blocked. I will probably ask for a list of uploads and other files to be posted here to my talk page from time to time, so that others can add the media to articles.

Two for now:

I miss everyone and I miss editing. But do not feel bad for me. I have replaced editing with lots of other fun things. I hope you all are well. You are wonderful people!

Talk soon,

Anna Frodesiak (Added by Oshwah per Anna Frodesiak's request on IRC)

ArbCom 2019 special circular[edit]

Administrators must secure their accounts

The Arbitration Committee may require a new RfA if your account is compromised.

Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)[edit]

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:03, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


Hi Anna[edit]

Hope to see you back if matters change! North America1000 14:36, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Same here! I really hope things change and the censorship is lifted there... :-( ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:33, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
    • Ah didn't see this until now! Anyhow Anna, hope you get on soon! Hopefully a friend around you has a trusty... ahem... internet program that will do the trick WhisperToMe (talk) 04:20, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Are you interested in Cuba Wikiproject?[edit]

Hi there! I am looking to revive the Cuba WikiProject over at WP:CUB! I am contacting you because you are on the member list, but I want to see who is willing to still work on this.

Have a great day, Snowycats (talk) 23:06, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Goodbye[edit]

I was hoping Wikipedia access would have returned to China by July. It has not. That's life. I edited for just over ten years, so I guess that is plenty of service. I have an off-line version, so I can still read the thing. That's great.

I will try to make an edit once in a while just to see if access has returned. I will not request removal of the admin tools just yet. You never know what will happen. I will be de-sysopped automatically in a year.

I may still write a few articles and get them into Wikipedia via IRC.

Thank you everyone, especially those very special people (you know who you are). It has been a privilege collaborating with all of you.

Anna Frodesiak

Note: Anna has asked I post this here. She does not wish to edit via a VPN out of respect for the laws of the People’s Republic of China. TonyBallioni (talk) 22:41, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Miss you. -- œ 23:02, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
Three years ago, when I made my first edit, back when I knew nothing about anything Wikipedia-related, you helped me understand how to edit. If you had not been so helpful to a user with so few contributions I would not be here contributing today. Thank you. If you do not edit again, know that you'll be missed. Regards, Vermont (talk) 23:04, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you so much for al that you have done here AF. Best wishes to you and yours in all your future endeavors. MarnetteD|Talk 23:21, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
"out of respect for the laws of the People’s Republic of China" – that sounds disturbing. Best wishes nonetheless. --Prüm (talk) 22:22, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Very sad to read this. I do hope it is not the last I read from you. - Sitush (talk) 22:26, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
  • I am very sorry to hear this Anna. You will be missed. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 07:22, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Sad to hear this. Hope things would improve so that you may return back. All the best for your undertakings in real life. Regards. --DBigXray 09:10, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Wojciech Waleczek[edit]

Hi. Could you please help me to move an userspace draft about an award-winning composer into article space? I would appreciate this a lot if you could review it or tell me who could review the article. The draft is about Wojciech Waleczek—a succesful pianist from Poland whose numerous achievements deserve to be celebrated with his own Wikipedia page. He took 3rd prize at the Premio Mario Zanfi competition and was the absolute winner of the 4th Franz Liszt National Piano Competition—to name just a few of his accomplishments. Mr Waleczek already has his articles on German and Polish Wikipedia. Hope to hear back from you. Regards, AngelOfDestiny (talk) 13:44, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Invitation to project revival[edit]

Dear user, I, with Willbb234, are a attempting to revive the Wikiproject Requested Articles, of which you are a member. If you wish to be a part of our effort, feel free to add your signature in it's talk page. Best regards, Eni vak (speak) 16:16, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

VPNs[edit]

Everyone in China uses a VPN to unblock content. You can get a WP:EXEMPT so that you can happily edit while we can block vandals who use the same IP. Poveglia (talk) 16:44, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Just read that you prefer not to use a VPN. As someone with zero respect for China's laws I can't really understand that; but I'll just have to accept it. Poveglia (talk) 16:46, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

AfroCine - bare logo.png

Greetings!

After a successful first iteration of the “Months of African Cinema” last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000.

The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which have been dedicated to creating and improving content that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. Join us in this global edit-a-thon, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope. Also remember to list your name under the participants section.

On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing participants in the following manner:

  • Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
  • Diversity winner
  • Gender-gap fillers
For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here. For further inquiries, please leave comments on the contest talkpage or on the main project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:50, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
