Central Notice admin commentsEdit

Campaign, banner, banner preview.

user:Sturm, the application above says the banner is requested to be live starting June 22th. Is that correct? -- Ата (talk) 18:21, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Hi @Ата:. My mistake, we've change it in order of the iminent end of the subscription period for this wikicontest. My mistake. The correct date is "asap". :) My fault. Regards, Sturm (talk) 19:20, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
We have an already running site notice use regarding "CentralNotice/Request/Wikiconcurso Museu Paulista", but now this one (older) can be stopped and finished. Please, just let me know if everything is ok and, if that's true, pls, turn on the site notice with our newer wikicontest banner. Sturm (talk) 19:23, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
I switched on the new one (lang-targeted on pt and pt-br and geotargeted on BR) and switched off the old one. I hope it works, maybe a more experienced CN admin will check everything later   -- Ата (talk) 19:27, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Well, since you ask.... :)
What is a reason to use the Central Notice, when only targetting the Portuguese Wikipedia? Why not use the Site Notice (the Mediawiki extension on the local project) instead? (see CentralNotice/Usage guidelines)
Why are not logged in users being targetted, what is the specific reason for this? (see CentralNotice/Usage guidelines)
@Ата: You left the boxes for all the different devices checked: did you preview the banner on iphone/android phone/ipad/...?
Just a few thoughts that come to mind. Ciell (talk) 11:44, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Hi everybody, Sturm here again. And once again I ask you to readjust the dates of this "CentralNotice/Request". Sorry pals.   This time, I would just like to remove the banner for tomorrow, the June 25th. I hope this does not cause inconvenience. @Ата: and @Ciell:. Cordially, Sturm (talk) 19:27, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
Ahem, this is a weird request, you know. I guess I can set the June 25th as the end day now and then change this later. However, Sturm, as I cannot guarantee that I will be around to put the banner back, I'd rather not do it. I hope there are alternatives I don't know of. -- Ата (talk) 19:35, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
Thank you, @Ата:. There will be no need to put this "CentralNotice banner" back. The banner can be removed asap. Regards, Sturm (talk) 15:01, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
Done. Ciell (talk) 18:21, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
