WallessPKU 由 hiaoxui 在 2017 年创建. 我 (hiaoxui) 经常被问到一些问题, 在这里做统一回答:
- 为什么创建 WallessPKU?
因为翻墙对于几乎所有的科研人员和大部分学生都是 刚需. 很多国内无法提供的优质资源, 比如 Google Scholar, YouTube, 甚至处在被墙边缘的 GitHub, 都只能通过翻墙获取. 我自己在北京大学的时候曾经饱受折磨, 进而学会了怎么搭建自己的服务器. 因为常常与人共享, 索性公开了服务, 慢慢改进, 一直做到现在.
服务器 的确 是完全免费的. 你找不到任何可以付费的渠道.
我反而想问问你 “为什么要付费”. 作为中国的网民, 在支付了足额的网费之后, 没有任何一条法律限制了你访问合法的海外互联网的自由, 也没有任何文件明确规定了哪些网站被审查, 或者审查的原则/依据是什么. 你有权访问完整的互联网, 你并无义务为自己的权利付费.
- 目前 WallessPKU 资金来源是什么?
我不方便接受人民币捐赠. 如果有美元账户, 可以通过 PayPal 向我资助. 如果您可以捐赠, 我不胜感激!
工程部分 (代码/服务器维护) 由我个人完成. 还有很多人选购服务器, 解决技术难题, 回答用户的疑问.
The project “WallessPKU” was created by me (hiaoxui) and is being maintained by some anonymous people. I was frequently asked with some questions, and here are my answers.
- Why would you initiate “WallessPKU”?
Because bypassing the firewall is a necessity for most of the academic researchers and students. Many high-quality resources that are not available in China, such as Google, YouTube, nearly all foreign social/public medias, and even GitHub. When I was a student at Peking University, I suffered a lot and eventually learned how to set up my own service. I shared my service with others, which gradually formed WallessPKU.
- When was WallessPKU created?
Back in 2017.
- How many users does WallessPKU have?
Many. Making this number public puts me at risk so I’d rather keep it secret.
- Is the service totally free?
Yes, completely free. We do not offer options to “upgrade” the service via payment.
- Why do you make it free?
Instead, I want to ask you “why pay?” As Chinese netizens, there is no law restricting your access to legal information on the internet, nor is there any document clearly stating which websites are under censorship or what the principles are there for censorship. We do not believe that a non-existent lay can regulate people, and it is a basic human right to get access to legal information. You have no obligation to pay for your rights.
- Who is working on WallessPKU?
I did most of the coding work, including a frontend, backend, and the protocols. We have several people working on the codes or working as consultant, and some sponsorship from datacenters. They are not willing to be listed on this page.
- What is the current funding source for WallessPKU? How to donate?
I feel grateful for some sponsors who donate servers to WallessPKU, and a couple of generous people who donate us money. The rest of cost is mostly covered by me.
We do not accept money donations in CNY. If you can donate via USD, you may use PayPal. Note that we do not accept donations from governments.
