Women's History Month and Art+Feminism NYC 2020Edit

What is the purpose of the campaign? How will you measure the success of the campaign?Edit

Description - To attract greater participation at regional Women's History Month and Art+Feminism events in the geography supported by Wikimedia New York City. These often include the largest editathons of the calendar year, are particularly suitable for newbies looking to become more engaged, and have been held annually in New York City since 2014, which is the place of origin and still the greatest concentration of events for this campaign. This request is unusual because we are asking for a subnational banner in a particular a US metropolitan area, see last year's request at CentralNotice/Request/Wikipedia Day US 2019.

DiscussionEdit

  • Oppose. Brazilian readers of the Portuguese Wikipedia have seen 233 days of banners over the past year, including 180 days of banners shown to anonymous users. Some of that time there were as many as six campaigns running simultaneously. This is an unreasonable level of overuse, and I don't think that Wiki Loves Africa is a sufficiently high-priority banner that this should override the necessity of having some time without banners. --Yair rand (talk) 20:24, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
Yair rand this is an absurd observation, we are running the WLA at Brazil, for the first time, no Lusophone country was running the Wiki Loves Love 2020 and the banner is appearing for us, you should have said that before, at the Wiki Loves Love 2020, not now.
We do not have grant money to publicised the campaign outside Wikimedia and we are talking about a very vulnerable and not represented community.
Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 16:04, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
@R.T.Argenton: You are right that Wiki Loves Love 2020 probably shouldn't have run in all the areas that it did. There also should have been more restraint in the recent banners, including the Wiki Loves Earth (which ran for two straight months), Wiki Loves Monuments, Asian Month, and others. Hopefully, in the future, people will manage to budget CentralNotice use more reasonably. But for now, we have to deal with the fact that it has been tremendously overused. It should not be used again until a reasonable amount of time has passed. --Yair rand (talk) 02:16, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Ciell this is just the inclusion of Brazil as target of WLA, that is already at the calendar. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 16:05, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Hi Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton,
Is there a need for an extra banner/campaign, or can Brazil just be added to the geotargetting? (Atm the WLA 2020 campaign is targetting AC, AO, BF, BI, BJ, BW, CD, CF, CG, CI, CM, CV, DJ, DZ, EA, EG, EH, ER, ET, FR, GA, GH, GM, GN, GQ, GW, KE, KM, LR, LS, LY, MA, MG, ML, MR, MU, MW, MZ, NA, NE, NG, RE, RW, SC, SD, SH, SL, SN, SO, SS, ST, SZ, TA, TD, TG, TN, TZ, UG, YT, ZA, ZM and ZW).
(Just adding a country is less work than setting up a new campaign, unless you need a different language/banner/etc) Ciell (talk) 16:11, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Ciell,
We need to include a Portuguese version of the banner.
The banner should be the same.
Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 16:14, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Portugese is already set for this banner: could you please try and translate it through [1]?
If there is indeed community consensus about running a banner for Wiki Loves Africa in Brazil (please share a link to a discussion), and you take care of the translation, I don't see a problem turning it on for you. Ciell (talk) 16:22, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Ciell, as this was an international campaign, the Commons Portuguese Village Pump have a very low engagement and I didn't think it would be a necessary step, as other campaigns also did not requested.
I can try a discussion there, but I not seeing as fruitful.
Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 16:36, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton: Though I understand your dilemma, you must realize this banner isn't just targetting Commons, but ALL Wikimedia projects in ALL languages in the targetted countries. Expanding it's reach to Brazil would mean ALL people visiting ANY WMF project would see the banner about Africa for the whole month of March.
I would understand a banner about South-Amerika, or Brazil, or about the Portuguese language for that matter. But here I really would like an okay from the community, or at least a message where you inform them although nobody responds. Ciell (talk) 16:48, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Ciell, in which communities do you want me to start this discussion and how long? Because the contest starts tomorrow.
Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 17:06, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton: That is difficult for me to say. In most languages communities in Wikipedia are the biggest, some have moved on to Wikidata of Commons. Try and reach out where-ever you see fit, I guess? Ciell (talk) 17:09, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Ciell, I did now at commons, latter I will try at WP-pt, that I not that welcome there. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 17:45, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

Ciell, I already had a positive answer at Commons c:Commons:Esplanada#Uso_CentralNotice_para_o_Wiki_Loves_Africa. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 17:04, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
Ciell I had one more positive answer about the campaign, now at Wikipedia, only one of people that have personal issues with me attack the idea (me more, actually) w:pt:Wikipédia:Esplanada/propostas/Uso CentralNotice para o Wiki Loves Africa (4mar2020) into a non acceptable point, when he cross a unhealthy line.

Central Notice admin commentsEdit

  • Hi! Why do you want to show the banner to anonymous users? Ciell (talk) 21:16, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Hey Ciell. A few reasons: to incentivize users to register and participate, to show the banner to users who may have an account but are not logged in, and to overall raise awareness about the event (someone may know another editor that might be interested and not have an account, by showing the banner we raise awareness and might increase participation). Chico Venancio (talk) 21:31, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Hi Chicocvenancio,
I think we all realise how big the effect is of the Central Notice, but we do have to be careful on how we use this. Over usage can lead to banner-blindness. Please consider reaching the users without an account in a different way, for instance targetted SM campaigns, or the media. Ciell (talk) 13:30, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
  • And you mention "other lusophone countries if possible": Wikipedia tells me, there are 9 other countries. You mean all listed in the enwp article? Ciell (talk) 21:51, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Ciell, yes. I would imagine two different rates (maybe diets as well). One for Brazil with more impact (higher rate and diet, though not necessarily high for the whole period) and one for the other 9 countries. The reasoning behind this is the theme and grantor are Brazilian and we imagine to have more interest by Brazilians on this campaign. The other countries might have some people who are capable and willing to participate so we think it would be ideal to include them as well. But we think that it might not be necessary or a good use of CentralNotice to have the campaign at the same level in both Brazil (where we expect higher interest in the contest and message) and other lusophone countries (where we expect lower interest). Chico Venancio (talk) 01:16, 14 March 2020 (UTC)
Chico Venancio: I tried to set up the notice with the banner you created, but I don't think the outcome is what you would want. Could you check it please? See screenshot of the preview and the preview onwiki. Ciell (talk) 11:13, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
Hey Ciell, I think you copied without clicking on edit source first? See the diff between my version and the template, the most important missing element are <div dir="ltr" id="concursoipiranga"> <div class="ipiranga-logo"></div> <div class="ipiranga-cta"> </div> </div></div> but it would be best to copy the whole thing to make sure nothing is missing. Chico Venancio (talk) 14:47, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
Copying the code in this link is the same as the code in the edit button to that revision on my test page. Chico Venancio (talk) 14:50, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
Sorry Chico Venancio , I CLEARLY hadn't had any coffee yet when I tried that this morning. How's this for you? For me the left image could be a bit more to the left (on my 17' laptop). Ciell (talk) 15:54, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
Hey Ciell, fixing the issue you mentioned got me into several other issues so I redid a bit of the work on the banner. Tested it with several resolutions on Chrome, Firefox and Edge, as well as Chrome and Firefox on android. I think it should look good in all platforms and across screen sizes, being a pretty simple design. Here is the final HTML. Chico Venancio (talk) 22:32, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
That looks way better Chico Venancio: example onwiki. Now, did you check the banner just on your computer, or also on iPad, iPhone and Android? Ciell (talk) 12:12, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
Only Windows and android, I don't have access to iOS devices. But I did try out the Chrome and Firefox mobile device emulation to be as thorough as possible. Chico Venancio (talk) 12:15, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
I turned it on for android and laptop/desktop, logged-in Portugese users in Brazil. It will show 5 times every 86.400 seconds (day) Ciell (talk) 12:25, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
This would make this banner request to difficult for me to implement. Maybe another admin can do this? Ciell (talk) 13:30, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  • Some additional comments: We do realize that 2+ months is a long campaign, but we hope it is possible if run it with appropriate diets, i.e. not shown too often. Possibility to change wording during the contest (eg. the contest has started → the contest continues → the contest is about to end) would be much appreciated. --AntonProtsiuk (WMUA) (talk) 13:58, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
    • Hi, glad you thought about that, and that can be arranged. Why would you like to have the banner shown to logged in and anonymous users? Is the competition open to non registered users, or do you have metrics about new accounts? Ciell (talk) 21:14, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
      @Ciell: The competition is not open to non-registered users, but we've heard anecdotal evidence of people registering because of contest banners; I am not aware of any hard numbers though. It is not essential for us that the banner is shown to anonymous users if you think that would be an issue, but we traditionally ask for that hoping that it would be a factor in increasing participation. --AntonProtsiuk (WMUA) (talk) 12:57, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
      Hi AntonProtsiuk (WMUA),
      Yes, I do think we all realise that some people may create an account to join the competition, but with the amount of banners that are shown to anonymous users, we have to be a bit more picky in our choices, I think. So if you wouldn't mind, it would be better to only turn it on for registered, and reach the users without an account with a different method, like SM targetting for instance.
