  • We are not in hurry. Please make sure this banner will be online before Feb. 2020 starts. Feel free to ask questions if you have any. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 12:13, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
  • Support as a positive project, I will probably join in this year.--Pharos (talk) 21:50, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

It's not immediatelly clear to me how should I participate when looking at c:COM:WLL20. Mind adding a button "Participate" or something? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:44, 21 December 2019 (UTC)

Yeah! We will be adding a button there on the page soon. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 13:58, 22 December 2019 (UTC)

Created [1]. Could you add translations via [2]? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:49, 21 December 2019 (UTC)

Additionally, we plan to put up a local notice for the New York City area for the Met editathon on Jan 25, probably running for a week beforehand. Pinging Pharos for that! :)

Thank you for Martin Urbanec and Tulsi Bhagat for the support!! Wikilover90 (talk) 04:56, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Please note that i adjusted the banner style as per Tulsi Bhagat's suggestions. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:37, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

@Tulsi Bhagat, @Martin Urbanec: Hello, File:Wiki-Loves-Love-2020-Folklore-banner-logo.svg is an embedded bitmap inside a SVG file and the server-side png renderer makes it look pretty bad when scaled-down, which is the case in the banner. If you don't have a proper vector file at the ready, for the time being it would be better to use the PNG file at File:Wiki-Loves-Love-2020-Folklore-banner-logo.png. I hope this is the right place for raising this issue.--TFerenczy (talk) 01:11, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Central Notice admin commentsEdit

  Done I've just approved all translations and enabled the banner. Will go live on midnight UTC. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:06, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

@Tulsi Bhagat and Tiven2240: I've disabled the banner at mobile, given it looks ugly there: [3]. Please fix that, so I can re-enable. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:43, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

-Martin Urbanec I'll fix the mobile style later today. I've added Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese translations, if you could edit the text to reflect that it would be nice. Chico Venancio (talk) 19:08, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
  Done. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 22:12, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Martin Urbanec, It seems all we need to do to have it properly behaving in mobile is to change position to relative for the misbehaving element. Here is the full code with that change. Chico Venancio (talk) 11:03, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Looks good, changed. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:19, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

@Tulsi Bhagat: I received some comments from wikipedians and I checked the setup but honestly a campaign worldwide for all projects for logged users and anonymous having a percentage of 40% and an impression diet of 2 banners per each person daily (I did a quick calculation) is quite massive. Some similar events like Wiki Loves Monuments or Wiki Loves Earth don't have this massive campaign. I have seen that there are not so much local organizers, is not it? Who manages the communication with local communities? --Ilario (talk) 20:29, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

I've softened the settings for the while (2 impressions in a day, and 25 % limit) for the time being. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 21:30, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
I think this type of project may need a slightly heavier campaign than Wiki Loves Monuments, as it is largely targetting regions of the world without strong local affiliate support. Perhaps it could be variable by continent, to target more heavily the regions that are largely unable to participate in Wiki Loves Monuments.--Pharos (talk) 00:02, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
I agree with both views. We shouldn't overuse the banner in general, so it also makes sense to keep that in mind here. Now surely the lake of support from local affiliates is a point that should rather be treated as something to remedy by a closer communication and partnership between the project team and the local affiliates. Thus said, even with a better cooperation on this level, the sum of local affiliates probably doesn't have an equivalent power than an intensive banner campaign (stronger on some points, but weaker on others). Without more precise metrics, it's difficult to asses relevently the good ratio. Comparing with other photo contests is a good idea on this matter, indeed. Explaining the perceived difference is also a good point. I don't have a good process in mind to come with metrics that help us to fine tune the visibility according to our aims, but establishing such a process should surely be a good way to set this kind of discussion. We could maybe start with a review of what are the factors that are known to be involved in the process of banner user decision. Maybe there are already existing things on this matter actually, I don't know. I hope that this feedback might help, Psychoslave (talk) 06:30, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
