After reading #2646968: [Plan] Regionalized Planet Drupal, Regionalized Planet Drupal and #2639048: Add a regional section of Planet Drupal: Planeta Latinoamericano I am here to request adding a regional section of Planet Drupal: Planet Chinese for content following the Drupal Planet's guidelines and posts will be in Chinese Simplified and Chinese Traditional.

For most of us, Language is a huge barrier in our local communities, and the quality of Drupal-related content in Chinese spreading can not be guaranteed without review. About 1/5 of the population in the world speaking Chinese, Not only people in China will benefit from this, but also people coming from Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia etc. will benefit too.

Examples of Drupal-related RSS feeds that would be aggregated into the new section:

Active Drupal.org users who would commit to moderating the section and adding new feeds to it

Good suggestion!

Thanks so much for jungle, I'm very agree with you!Hope we can see a Chinese version of Drupal Planet.

For the url, I suggest that we can use https://www.drupal.org/planet/zh-hans.

Thanks @jackniu for post this on http://drupalchina.cn/node/5940

The zh-hans is the short code for Chinese Simplified. Since it is a regional planet, not only targeting for China, it is for Asia-Pacific community and for who write in Chinese Simplified or Chinese Traditional in the world. As Planeta Latinoamericano for who write in Spanish or Portuguese.

I guess https://www.drupal.org/xingqiu will be the winner.

Great proposal!

There are many drupal related blog in China. I guest that will be enough rss for it.
For the url, I think there is few known what does 星球 mean in d.o, I guess planet is commonly known to people who care about drupal. Also, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese are two official branches of Chinese language. we can call them both Chinese. So I vote for https://www.drupal.org/planet/chinese

Thanks for your proposal. As we just launched the pilot regional section (Latinoamericano), we'd like to wait at least a month or two before discussing adding more of them to see how active the new section is, how popular among our visitors, how much of a maintenance burden it adds for webmasters, considering they don't know the language of the content. I am marking this issue postponed for now.

Sounds reasonable. @tvn Thanks for your response.

After collected enough RSS feeds in Chinese here, maybe I'll mark this issue active again to let you know that we are ready.

For various reasons I would appreciate such an effort with the sheer number of chinese speaking users being the most striking. As this feed should only aggregate chinese content I don't see a good reason not to name it accordingly. Using the a regional name seems inappropriate. After all there are non-chinese speaking countries in the Asia-Pacific.
This would be my the only roadblock I'd like to bring up.

Thanks @dddave for your reply.

It's ture that using a regional name is inappropriate. Is Planet Chinese ok?

Please do help us to work out a new section of Planet Drupal for Chinese speakers.
