Hi, everybody, we have got really good news for Chinese Wikipedia in
The Chinese Wikipedia has been reported by two media in mainland China.
The New Magazine based in the southern province of Guangdong had an
article about us on 15 Feb. Another report was from Shanghai Sunday
Morning Post, published yesterday(29 Feb). This is the first time
Wikipedia is reported in mainstream media in China. Besides, Chinese
Wikipedia has been talked about in many Chinese blogs.
These two reports have brought in much traffic for us. We are having
more newcomers, although most of their contributions are only stubs. Up
to now there are 3468 registered users, and only yesterday there were
only around 3,000. And in Alexa.com
, we see that about 6% of the traffic
is contributed by ZH Wikipedia, (
although we are not the top 10 Wikipedias. But I am worried that despite
the increase in traffic, there might not be a very big increase in
article counts, as from previous experiences we find that Chinese users
are less willing to contribute new articles.
