  •   Support In my mind it's very importent thing.Just (talk · contribs · page moves · block user · block log)
  •   Support. Effective in outreach, obtaining new valuable content & gaining public support for Wikipedia.--Frhdkazan (talk) 19:56, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
  • A two-month campaign is far too long, in my opinion. Also, why does this exclude logged-in users? --Yair rand (talk) 11:38, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
    • The banner will appear three times a week. This is actually less than one month. In order not to strain the banner of those people who create the encyclopedia on a daily basis. My experience with this contest for the fifth year in a row, says that in the contest 99% of participants are external users. JukoFF (talk) 12:15, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
  •   Strong support. This is a traditional annual international competition (since 2015), which provides thousands of high-quality scientific illustrations, which are then used in Wikipedia in almost all languages. --Ctac (talk) 08:20, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
    @Martin Urbanec, the photo-contest has already started, please hang up the banner --Ctac (talk) 11:43, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
  • The strongest support - because I think that these illustration are most important for the encyclopedia, as they illustrate the most fundamental knowlege. And hence this competion is one of the most important for the project. And the banner would not only attracts valued participants, but also send a message to the reader that Wikipedia cares science.
