You are living in China. We don't have many Contributors in China and therefore our Chinese list with Advovates at open-source events is not really long with 1 Advocate. That is what I meant that we need more Advocates at open-source events.
There may not be many Chinese people listed on that old crusty wiki page but as a champion of the openSUSE Asia community I have to strongly object to any suggestion that "we don't have many Contributors in China"
We have a lot, and I hope none of them are insulted by the suggestion from a Board candidate that they don't exist.
Sorry, that I didn't know abot these openSUSE Contributors! The question is, why we don't contribute to other open-source events in Asia then. That's it, what Ariez wants to know and needs. I want to support them. That is not possible, if we don't know about them as Advocates.
One of my most exhilerating times as a community member was meeting so many of them in Bejing in 2014 (Group photo linked below).
While I haven't been able to see them as often as I'd have linked in the years since, I see evidence of the fine work of our Chinese contributors in every openSUSE Asia conference since and their fingerprints all over our project, from code, to creating art, to helping conference booths across the world.
You may be quiet and unassuming enough for Sarah to have missed you but I want this public record to show that I know you exist, love the work you are doing, and I'm sure you'll help us welcome Ariez to the community with open arms.
I am not unassuming. Watch your last emails. The you can see, who is working pro community and who not. You have shown yourself on the mailing list exactly as this "Richard" who had been in the Board. That explains, what I have meant in my Q&A.
Best regards, Sarah
