Wikipedia/https in China Mainland

Created: 4 years and 9 months ago
The integration of Wikipedia is done nicely; however, in the PR China, Wikipedia is only accessible via http://wikipedia.org, httpS://wikipedia.org is blocked by the great firewall.
Would it be possible, to redirect inside PR China to http://wikipedia.org?
Thanks!

This one is tricky. We really try to make the same results for everyone by default, and our systems (e.g. caching) are designed that way.

Potentially what we could do is turn off https on wikipedia if you have your china region set, but I don't think that really solves it because anyone in the world could turn that on and if you just boot up in china it wouldn't be on by default.

Theoretically we could just do it and it isn't really changing the results, but it is a non-trivial change because of the caching issue.
