This contest was first was created in 2019 by a few wikimedians, and I am acting as their support from now on. It actually started running as early as the 1st of May, but the banner request was posted on the wrong page. The main person I am in contact with is AirSThib who co-founded the contest. --Adelaide Calais WMFr (talk) 10:56, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Central Notice admin commentsEdit

@AirSThib: & @Adélaïde Calais WMFr: Looks perfect, though also here the image proposed for the banner is less then suboptimal. I hope that Rodelar has the time today to crop the image without the text, then I will create your banner. In the meantime, please also add your event to the calendar and look for possible conflicting banners (targetting same country/language in the same time). Ciell (talk) 15:06, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

  • Is it okay for you if I use File:African Month Logo.svg instead of the image with all the text? Ciell (talk) 15:09, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Hi Ciell, thank you very much ǃ I added the event to the calendar and checked ː there don't seem to be any other banners set up on french speaking wikipedia for that period. The one before stops on the 18th. I would say go ahead and use the second file but I'd rather wait for AirSThib's green light. Adelaide Calais WMFr (talk) 16:23, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
  • @Ciell and Adélaïde Calais WMFr: Yes you can use the small logo. AirSThib 🌌 Cyclist stars cafeteria 🚴 16:40, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
  • @AirSThib and Adélaïde Calais WMFr: please check the banner preview. NB: this actually is a perfect example the kind of banner where the Site Notice (on the French Wikipedia) would have been a perfect fit, but I understand from your posting here, that nobody responded to the request made? Is the community okay with showing a banner? Ciell (talk) 17:34, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Hi Ciell, I think the community is okay with it ː a banner was shown last year for a month on account of this event and nobody complained. But if you like I can ask on the village pump today. It is correct that nobody responded to AirSThib's request. Another contributor indicated later on that page that even though it would be the place to request sitenotices, it seemed that few people actually used it for this purpose. Thank you for sending a preview but I could not find the banner on the page you linked to. Although I admit I am glad to have learnt about wikianarchism ǃ Adelaide Calais WMFr (talk) 07:13, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Here are two contributors' enthusiastic reply to my question on the village pump. Adelaide Calais WMFr (talk) 09:24, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
