I just realized we don't have members from China

Postby fergus1234 » 11 Jul 2018, 07:02

Is the Forumcoin banned in China, vice versa?

I noticed other online earning sites have big population of Chinese members. But I haven't seen someone here from China. Well there is a person of Chinese descent but that person is not a Chinese citizen I think. I am asking this because I have a friend who is a factory worker in China and I am considering inviting that person here at the forumcoin.

Chances are very high that this site is among the thousands that are blocked in China. There are many sites that explain the Chinese government control of the Internet within their own country.

A quote from one article explains
Since May 2015, Chinese Wikipedia has been blocked in mainland China.[10][11][12][13] This was done after Wikipedia started to use HTTPS encryption which made selective censorship impossible or more difficult.


Since ForumCoin also uses this encryption, it is likely banned in China.

The article I read the above quote from is on

The money from Forum coin would have cost a lot in China. At least they still have Mylot. Seriously some of the sites China Block makes no sense. They just block it so they can make their own version of it.

I never gave it a thought. But now I realize that I have not come across one so far. I doubt seeing anyone on MyLot too. Maybe I have not interacted with any one so far. :think:

The issue is chinese members usually less interact outside their own sphere of internet. Very few venture out on other forums. I am into MMO forums since 2017. I only came across 12 to 15 over the period of years and mind you i am very active on such forums. lol.

I don't think we are blocked in China or restricted in anyway. I have seen occasional registrations from China but not many stay active. I don't really know why. Maybe it is just due to how/where users advertise us or they find the site hard to understand.

He is from Hong Kong as he publicly mentioned in a few of his posts like here -

Isn't Hong Kong China's turf now? (I heard it in a James Bond movie.) That means he's from China. Right? I wish @jackchun would answer. I feel like we're talking all around a person who can speak for themselves. :lol: :lol:

I think Chinese do not prefer interacting in such forums but if you look at Mylot, I can see a number of Chinese members but they have a different different kind of interest while participating in discussions.

Hong Kong is still it's own entity. They have their own soccer team. There is a Miss Hong Kong that competes in international Beauty pageants and Youtube is not banned there.

Not trying to act like all I'm smarter than you. It's not like that.
BUT! ... The James Bond movie was spot on!

Hong Kong is China's turf. But the British had their back and took care of their future. :lol:

"Is Hong Kong Part of China Today?

Yes! Hong Kong is still a special administrative region of the PRC. But under that “One Country, Two Systems” principle, Hong Kong retains a great deal of autonomy. "

By the way I actually came back to this thread to share a link to one of our popular discussions here at Forum Coin:

Where are you from? Where do you live?

It's a pretty cool discussion because some people don't live where they came from.

I searched it and found only 1 match for China and that person wasn't from China.

I just saw a report on Al Jazeera English which made me wonder if there is anybody here from Trinidad. Found zero matches in that discussion. But maybe they are here. They just didn't answer the question.
