Central Notice admin comments

  • Hi RamzyM (WMF). A few things about the campaign/banner settings before I make it:
    • Your request asks this to be run for all logged-in users, but the vast majority of those users are not eligible. We can add some javascript that will limit this to users with more than 300 edits, I'm forgetting whether we can get global edit count or whether we're limited to per-wiki edits. Basically, I'd recommend finding other ways to reach out to people who are not eligible for edit count but may be eligible for the other listed reasons.
    • If you want to run this on Catalan projects (your request indicates all languages), please discuss it with the community and report back whether they have approved. This is indicated in the usage guidelines.
    • How many languages will this banner be translated into before it is running? We like to avoid showing English banners to non-English speakers.
    • Please add your campaign to the CN calendar and requests page. This is steps 3 and 4 of requesting the banner (see the requests page).

Hi Vermont, I've added the campaign to the calendar and requests page.
  • Yes, please add the javascript that will limit the banner to users with more than 300 edits across the Wikimedia projects, if possible.
  • No, please exclude the Catalan projects.
  • We do not budget for a professional translation, since we plan to use a modified version of the U4C charter banner texts (which has been widely translated). We will prioritize calling for volunteer translations into Russian, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, Bengali, Farsi, Ukrainian, Czech, Polish, Italian, Turkish, Korean, Indonesian, Thai, Hindi, Swahili, Hausa, and Hungarian.
Let me know if you need anything else. Cheers, RamzyM (WMF) (talk) 14:42, 18 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@RamzyM (WMF): We can only check the local, not the global count. Still okay? With this number? Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 14:35, 24 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Should be fine, thanks DerHexer. RamzyM (WMF) (talk) 22:24, 24 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
