Central Notice admin commentsEdit

I created the campaign for the dates and countries mentioned in the request. The banner and other settings are similar to those of 2021 Board Election Candidates campaign. The banner is set to be shown to logged in users, I don't possess the knowledge of targeting on autoconfirmed only.
KCVelaga (WMF), the banner is not translatable at the moment. I assume that the meetup will be in English and therefore it is not that important for the banner to be translated. Or is it? -- Ата (talk) 11:43, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

Two more questions, just to be clear. There are specific languages mentioned in the campaign calendar entry while the request is for all languages; which one is it? And why stop banner campaign on July 25 or 28th when the meetup is on 31st? I would have the banner closer to the event, but that's just me. Thanks. -- Ата (talk) 11:51, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

@Ата: Thanks a lot for setting this up. It is fine if it is not "autoconfirmed only" - I have mentioned that so that we can target potential eligible voters only, but that's fine. The primary language will be English, so it is fine. Oh Sorry, I forgot to update the calendar - actually, the event was initially for South Asia only, so I have restricted the languages, then ESEAP was merged with it, so the language restriction didn't make any sense, and countries will work just right. Regarding the campaign end date, I don't have any strong preference, I felt 10 days is good enough to create awareness. The registration closes on the 30th, if you think that extending the date will help, please do. Thanks again, KCVelaga (WMF) (talk) 12:07, 14 July 2021 (UTC)
