The discussion is still going on, and I can see people supporting our
action. Surely there will be some doubts, and we will be happy to answer
them and welcome them to join us.

community want to do. If we make use of CentralNotice's geo-targeting, it
is very easy to implement a Taiwan-only
blackout/site-notice/redirect-to-specific page etc. This involves no server
side configuration change, volunteers will be able to get this done. The
time consuming part is to write the banner and it's javascript, but that
shouldn't take longer than a day of there is people willing to help.

As I previously point out in my first question: can it be geo-targeting? If
it can, then I can agree that it would be easier. If it cannot, then
properly we would need help from the foundation.
