Page blocked by Thai Ministry of Communication?[edit]

An OTRS correspondent writes:

Thought you should know that the Thai Ministry of Communication has just blocked the King of Thailand page (Bhumibol Adulyadej). That's on the English and Thai Wikipedias when trying to view from within Thailand. Checked a few other languages (German, French, Spanish) and they are still working.

Obviously, I'm not in a position to verify that. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:16, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

I am Thai residing in Thailand, using True Internet. I affirmed that the page "Bhumibol Adulyadej" were blocked from ICT, though only for English Wikipedia, and only if accessed by the name. Redirects to the page were not blocked (such as Rama IX), as well as alternative access through the secure server by the name. Talk page also not being blocked from access. --G(x) (talk) 10:33, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

I have just accessed this article, as well as the talk page from Thailand, check my IP. I will try to make a null edit on the article as well 115.67.6.77 (talk) 01:49, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

I tried to make a null edit, then an edit consisting of a space and carriage return, but was unable to edit the article from Thailand IP. See history.[1] I don't see that this article is blocked in any way to prevent IP edits. 115.67.6.77 (talk) 01:59, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
This is odd. I was just able to edit a subsection. [2] 115.67.6.77 (talk) 02:04, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
And now I have made a small copyedit to the piece as a whole. [3] 115.67.6.77 (talk) 02:13, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
It's still blocked for users in Thailand, but there are still easy-to-use work-arounds. —Pawyilee (talk) 16:00, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
The changeover to "https" may make no difference to NSA, but it has made an end run around Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (Thailand). —Pawyilee (talk) 16:57, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Style and title of the king.[edit]

Can we get an accurate translation please of the King's style and title? Google translate gave me this from the Thai:

"His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Cummins Navy. Thi La Belle Ramathibodi Mahidol keys. Chakri Narula on Navy land Drugs including fungi Open University Hmmmm"

Could this be a case of vandalism of the original Thai that has remained undetected? or is it simply bad translation?Llanforda (talk) 02:20, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Google Translate shall not be used in any way, as it will give an almost unreadable context. As the full title is not in plain Thai language but also a combination of Sanskrit, it will be more difficult for the machine to translate.
I gave a translated description (which should not be used in any way as it is my original research) as His Excellency Bhumibol Adulyadej, Son of Mahidol, the great ruler of Chakri, the sheltered King of Siam, while I am aware that this is not the all-inclusive translation of the name, as some literal translations in English was omitted due to repetitive manner. --G(x) (talk) 05:49, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Chakri Mahaprasad Hall guard photo[edit]

I think the addition of this photo lacks relevance. The entire article doesn't even mention any of the King's Guard regiments. --Paul_012 (talk) 10:33, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
