維基媒體國際會議將延後至2021年。

凱薩琳·馬赫致維基社群的一封信
2020年3月18日


親愛的各位,

作為維基媒體運動不斷應對COVID-19大流行的一部分,我們將Wikimania曼谷2020推遲了。該決定是在ESEAP接待團隊和Wikimania委員會的全力支持下做出的。我們將一起在2021年在曼谷舉行Wikimania。

令我们感到沮丧的是,八月份不能在曼谷见到你们。可是,我們相信這是為我們全球社區和整體公共健康的最好的決定。該決定是由ESEAP組織者根據其國家對COVID-19大流行的反應提出的,並且符合世界衛生組織(WHO)的建議。

你們一定有很多問題。我們希望能在下面回答你們的一些問題。我們會繼續在回答Wikimania Meta-Wiki頁和在Wikimania 電報群聊的問題(下面的更多信息)。

延迟举办維基媒體國際會議意味什么?

我們不會在2020年舉辦面對面的Wikimania。我們正在重新安排Wikimania Bangkok,直到2021年。ESEAP組織團隊[2]將繼續作為東部,東南部和太平洋地區的分支機構之間的區域合作組織的工作,明年將在泰國接待我們。

曼谷的酒店和场地将保持不变,我们还没有最终确定2021年的日期,不过将与ESEAP团队和Wikimania指导委员会合作,确认新的日期。我们将在2020年年底前告知您这些日期。

好消息是Wikimania 2021 将与维基百科成立二十周年同时举行, 我们期待这将是一个真正值得纪念的Wikimania -- 一个庆祝相隔一年后重新联系的机会,以及二十年自由知识的非凡成就。

Will there be an alternative to the in-person event?

There are no plans by the 2020 Wikimania hosts to organize a virtual, online event. Hosting Wikimania is a lot of work. The ESEAP team is committed to hosting the best possible in-person event in Bangkok in 2021. Therefore, they will not have the capacity to organize a virtual Wikimania this year.

However, the Wikimania committee, the ESEAP host team, and the Wikimedia Foundation all recognize that other members of the community may be interested in organizing a remote, global Wikimedia event for 2020. Although the Wikimedia Foundation does not have the capacity at this time to lead the organizing of a virtual online conference, we recognize others may have the desire to do so.

We welcome discussion about online events. Interested parties are welcome to contact the Wikimania Steering Committee and Wikimania Foundation staff for advice on the Wikimania Meta-Wiki page.

We are also considering proposals for improving the capacity of communities to organize local virtual convenings, and for how we can support communities in organizing impromptu local and regional Wikimedia events once the pandemic passes. As the situation has been changing rapidly we are still working on specifics and will share more information in the coming weeks.

What does this mean for scholarship applications?

We are working on a plan for how to process Wikimania 2020 scholarship applications. We will share more information in the coming weeks.

这个决定是如何做出的?

This recommendation was made by the ESEAP organizers based on what we know about the current COVID-19 global health pandemic and current WHO guidelines. The decision was made together with the ESEAP team in consultation with the Wikimania Steering Committee and Wikimedia Foundation. Together we are fully and unanimously aligned around this decision.

Although we are genuinely sad to not have the opportunity to see you all this year, we also are fully supportive of this decision in all of our best interests. It allows our ESEAP community hosts to focus on the immediate needs of their families, local Wikimedia communities, and local communities as a whole. It is in line with global public health guidance and aligns the Wikimedia movement as a responsible actor in support of our common public good.

We want to thank all volunteers and affiliates that have been involved with planning Wikimania. We’re especially appreciative of the ESEAP for their leadership, flexibility, and compassion, as we have worked together to make some difficult decisions on this important event.

在哪里我可以更多地了解Wikimania 2021??

There are a number of channels where Wikimania is regularly discussed and where plans for 2021 will be posted as they develop. We welcome all interested participants to bring together our collective wisdom and creativity to discuss what happens next with Wikimania. You can find these channels here:


在哪里我可以了解更多关于COVID-19及Wikimedia的信息?

We know the Wikimedia community as generous and altruistic. Unsurprisingly, many volunteers have started applying their skills and attention to this current global pandemic. The Foundation created a page on Meta-Wiki where we can share and document the steps the Foundation and movement members are taking and ways to participate. We invite you to join us in documenting more about our collective response: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/COVID-19

Thank you.

Our world, and many of our lives, have changed rapidly over these past few weeks. Yet we can look to history to take comfort that crises are also often moments when people put aside differences, prioritize community and care, and find ways to connect. The sense of community and purpose within the Wikimedia movement is a powerful rejoinder to these uncertain times.

This is a moment in which not only what we do, but how we do it, will make a meaningful impact on the world. We are so grateful for all that you do as a movement to continue to rise to the challenges of our moment.


请注意安全并保重。

ESEAP Core Organizing Team
