Notes on Accessing Wikipedia from ChinaEdit

  • Wikipedia normally cannot be viewed in China, but in August - early September, 2007, could be viewed, so I updated "Dalian" in its Japanese and English editions, changing about 80 and 50 percent, respectively. I confess, though, I am just a very beginning contibutor of Wikipedia. (Sept., 2007)
  • Wikipedia, except its Chinese version, can be viewed in China, thanks to the Beijing Olympic Games. (April, 2008)
  • The Chinese pages of Wikipedia can now be viewed in China (June, 2008), cannot now be viewed (July, 2008) and can now be viewed because the reporters at the Media Center complained to the Beijing Olympic Commitee. (August, 2008)
  • The pictures cannot now be uploaded from China to Wikimedia. (December, 2009) They can now be uploaded from China. (December, 2010)
