@Benoit Rochon, DerHexer, Ilario, Itzike, and Mardetanha: @Matiia, Martin Urbanec, NahidSultan, Romaine, and Samat: @Steinsplitter, Trijnstel, Shanmugamp7, and Vituzzu: Hi, I'd like to ask you if anything else is needed from our side so as to move forward with this request (and the one that should be activated right after this one). It's my first time here and I wouldn't like to have it stalled because I forgot something. Thanks in advance! --ESM (talk) 11:04, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Thank you for your quick reply & approval. The volunteer that has designed the banners has been told to check that everything is alright; we'll keep in touch regarding this matter. Also, regarding your concerns about the notice duration, I'd like to provide some reasons that might ease them. Viquitrobada is the most important event for the Catalan community: we'd like to make users and editors aware of it and we'd like to strengthen participation as much as possible especially by reaching out to people that have never been involved in real-life gatherings of the Catalan community. The Catalan community isn't a CentralNotice frequent user, which has led us to have our sites sometimes occupied by notices that are barely related to us and/or haven't been notified to us in advance, being this one of the reasons that have led us to ask for two consecutive banners, that we are really looking forward to being displayed for the requested periods of time. Thanks for your understanding! --ESM (talk) 07:19, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

I'm fine with both banners running up to a month (in total). Would enabling the first banner by end of October be enough for you? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:10, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Thank you very much for your understanding! A month will be fine for us: if you consider it appropriate the first banner can be enabled the 28th October (Monday) instead of the 26th (Saturday). Thanks again! --ESM (talk) 15:58, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Sure! So to recap, this banner should run from 28th October to 15th November, and then CentralNotice/Request/Viquitrobada 2019 15th November to 28th November? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:34, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: That is correct. I'll ping you when @Townie: checks the banner displays and is sure everything is ok. Thanks! --ESM (talk) 15:13, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

Thanks! --Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:03, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Would it be possible to update the current banner to this one? Thanks a lot, --Townie (talk) 20:06, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
  Done with a small change (made whole banner clickable). --Martin Urbanec (talk) 22:04, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
@Townie: It would be cool if you can make the banner closable. However, not a blocker from my side. For your future reference, <a href="#" title="Close" onclick="mw.centralNotice.hideBanner();return false;"><div class="cn-closeButton">Close</div></a> can do it for you. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 22:06, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Sorry for bothering you again, I've changed the look of the banner once again. Could you please update it? --Townie (talk) 15:51, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
  Done --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:43, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: For some reason, when the banner loads it causes issues on the rest of the page. Any clue as to why it may be happening? --Townie (talk) 20:04, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
Which kind of issue you mean? It's displaying fine on my end. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:07, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
It seems all external links now have a blue background color. I don't think this happened with your original banner. --Townie (talk) 21:53, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: If we don't find anything, I think it would be a good idea to remove this banner. Maybe swap it for the one in the next campaign? --Townie (talk) 13:22, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
  Fixed All external links have CSS class text, which conflicted with your banner stylesheet. I've wrapped banner into a div, and prefixed all CSS selectors with .banner-container, which should make the CSS apply only inside the container I just added. Let me know if it looks okay now! --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:16, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: It's working great! Thanks a lot. --Townie (talk) 14:32, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Hi, it seems that cawiki users (even those from outside Spain) see a Wiki Loves Folk banner alternated with the Viquitrobada one. We weren't aware that this campaign would also be visible in cawiki projects, since as far as we know we aren't taking an active part in this contest, at least this year. Can you please take a look at it? We're concerned about the Viquitrobada banner not being visible enough for cawiki users from abroad, since we're especially interested to reach to them. Thanks in advance! --ESM (talk) 12:21, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Campaign settings altered. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:34, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: It's me again :P Could you please add the "Close" button to the banner. The translation in Catalan would be "Tanca". Thanks a lot, once again! --Townie (talk) 18:20, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Central Notice admin commentsEdit

  Approved, except duration. Conferences are acceptable usage of CentralNotice. However, October => start of December is extremely long campaign. I suggest displaying banner only for, let's say, 2 weeks in that period of time? In the case of low number of participants, we might consider re-enabling for a while. I'll create banner preview, please let me know if this is okay, and if so, which weeks would you suggest. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:26, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Banner preview: [1]. Please let me know if that's okay. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:30, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Per our rules all external links now must be https or not be. viquitrobada.cat is http only (using https trigger a server error). I suggest we just use the ca.wikipedia.org landing page instead of proxying it through an insecure external site. Thoughts? —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:42, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
I could finally see the banner (Special:CentralNoticeBanners is broken for me; I reported a bug months ago...). I see that link is not used and instead the Wikipedia link is so good to go for me. No objections. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:53, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Per discussion above, this is fully   Approved. Created as [2] (and [3], which is the subsequent campaign). Waiting for final confirmation of campaign parameters from ESM, then, I'll enable the campaign, so it will go live on decided date. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:39, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
