#1223

I want to add Tariq’s advice on activity compartmentalizing per guard. What is the best page for this?


#1224

That was still there so I removed it.

https://whonix.org/w/index.php?title=Tunnels/Connecting_to_Tor_before_a_VPN&oldid=40433&diff=cur

If you would like me to spend the time on this, i can do that. Might be worth it.

  • Easier to follow instruction = Less support requests.
  • Pages would be shorter. Maybe users would actually read the documentation?
    • Users might not even use a VPN? But not likely, it took me a while before I realized they were not required / not always necessary.

Needs to be done eventually why not start now?

Rewrote and removed duplicat. I think its a little clearer now?

Re: Limitations on free speech on whonix website. Yes, should have its own page. I can do that and migrate. Should also include these links?:


#1225

Either:


#1226

The slash / would create a sub page.

Yay! :slight_smile:

(Well, daunting task. That’s why I never did it. Other things made me think:

  • Perhaps an automation script? As far as that is possible in a generic way?
  • Perhaps a user -> Tor -> VPN documentation without fail closed mechanism for circumvention only for easy of use?)

#1227

Oopsy

I could do that but I have a feeling I would be booted off the Whonix team and erased from the Whonix history books when you saw it. :slight_smile:

In all seriousness, it could get it done but its not something that you would be able to use. My bash skills are not that advanced.

That would be a good idea. Was reading an article (don’t remember where) but employees in big Chines telecom companies use VPNs to access twitter and other social media platforms that are censored. All they really need is something to circumvent the firewall. Maybe Failed close not always necessary?

Yes. For some websites it’s easy. VPN = access. Tor = no access. No
other repercussions. Specifically to just get read access where Tor exit
relays are blocked to something one doesn’t have to go crazy about fail
closed mechanism.


#1229

Removed limitations on free speech on Whonix website.

Migrated to its own page.

#1230

Done. I tried to make it as simple as I can, but I don’t know how difficult it will be for beginners.


#1231

Lost at hello:

  • multi-Workstation scenarios
  • snapshots
  • from a clean base
  • pristine Gateway snapshot

#1232

Yes it’s terrible I know, but I don’t know how to improve it. Should I just admit that it’s never going to be practical for beginners and forget it?

Do you understand it though or am the only one?


#1233

At maximum more technical users are reading and capable to use this. However these concepts (mentioned above) are not used elsewhere in wiki and even if they are the links are missing. Also I am nitpicky about terminology, for example multi-Workstation will be less understood then [[Mutliple Whonix-Workstation|Mutliple Whonix-Workstation]] which we use more or less consistent thorough the wiki. So all this needs is a nitpicky revision.


#1234

The difference between instructions that work for users, and instructions that don’t work for users.

#1235

I tried rephrasing it into a somewhat less complicated way. Opinon?
