How is Thai Wikipedia different from other Wikipedias?[แก้]
Contents in Thai – It is certain that Thai Wikipedia ("ThWP" and "WP") contents are in Thai. Although you may find words rendered in foreign alphabets in parts of the articles, but these words are just for explanatory purpose, while most parts of the articles are still in Thai. The default ThWP interface is also in Thai (but you can change it).
Not a translation site – WP contents are in various languages, each being called a project. So, ThWP is one of these projects. Some may mistakenly believe that the projects are translations of each other, and they leave messages wishing for translations to be provided by the system. In fact, the system will do nothing. It is the volunteers in each project who would make contributions of their own accord. The volunteers may publish contents translated from another project and, in doing so, they may be assisted by bots. But this does not mean that WP provides translation services and ThWP will not grant the requests for translations of any other contents than the articles (interpersonal requests are instead advised).
Using Buddhist Era – Influenced by the Thai government system, Buddhist Era ("BE") generally applies to ThWP. Such era has been in official usage since the reign of Vajiravudh. Years in ThWP articles concerning Thailand are mainly denoted by BE, while different eras, e.g. Christian Era and Common Era, may also be used in the other articles as appropriate.
Restricting indecent images – Indecent images[a] are only allowed when they are uploaded to Wikimedia Commons with free licences and are used for the purpose of illustrating anatomy, physiology, sex education, artistry, etc., (use of copyrighted images from external sources for such purpose is in no case permitted). This is to prevent spam and sexual vandalism. And for the sake of child readers who can also access ThWP contents in several ways, including search engines; available drawings, paintings or images of sculpture should be used if they can appropriately be replaced with photos of real organs.
^ Indecent images here refer to images of genital organs, naked body organs or sexual activities.
