Description - The WikiConcurso Museu do Ipiranga is a competition on the Portuguese language Wikipedia. It is part of a series of activities throughout this year of 2020 conducted in collaboration by the Wiki Movement Brazil User Group and the Museu Paulista.

  Strong support This is an extremely important event for Wikipedia in Portuguese, associated to a very large GLAM-Wiki initiative. --Joalpe (talk) 17:00, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

  Strong support A very fundamental event to improve content about one of the most important heritage institutions in Brazil, with clear educational relevance and purpose.--GiFontenelle (talk) 00:31, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

  Strong support The contest is a great initiative from the GLAM outreach in Brazil point of view. Will certainly engage the community around the Paulista Museum collections! EricaAzzellini (talk) 18:06, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Central Notice admin commentsEdit

  • Hi! Why do you want to show the banner to anonymous users? Ciell (talk) 21:16, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Hey Ciell. A few reasons: to incentivize users to register and participate, to show the banner to users who may have an account but are not logged in, and to overall raise awareness about the event (someone may know another editor that might be interested and not have an account, by showing the banner we raise awareness and might increase participation). Chico Venancio (talk) 21:31, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Hi Chicocvenancio,
I think we all realise how big the effect is of the Central Notice, but we do have to be careful on how we use this. Over usage can lead to banner-blindness. Please consider reaching the users without an account in a different way, for instance targetted SM campaigns, or the media. Ciell (talk) 13:30, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
  • And you mention "other lusophone countries if possible": Wikipedia tells me, there are 9 other countries. You mean all listed in the enwp article? Ciell (talk) 21:51, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Ciell, yes. I would imagine two different rates (maybe diets as well). One for Brazil with more impact (higher rate and diet, though not necessarily high for the whole period) and one for the other 9 countries. The reasoning behind this is the theme and grantor are Brazilian and we imagine to have more interest by Brazilians on this campaign. The other countries might have some people who are capable and willing to participate so we think it would be ideal to include them as well. But we think that it might not be necessary or a good use of CentralNotice to have the campaign at the same level in both Brazil (where we expect higher interest in the contest and message) and other lusophone countries (where we expect lower interest). Chico Venancio (talk) 01:16, 14 March 2020 (UTC)
Chico Venancio: I tried to set up the notice with the banner you created, but I don't think the outcome is what you would want. Could you check it please? See screenshot of the preview and the preview onwiki. Ciell (talk) 11:13, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
Hey Ciell, I think you copied without clicking on edit source first? See the diff between my version and the template, the most important missing element are <div dir="ltr" id="concursoipiranga"> <div class="ipiranga-logo"></div> <div class="ipiranga-cta"> </div> </div></div> but it would be best to copy the whole thing to make sure nothing is missing. Chico Venancio (talk) 14:47, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
Copying the code in this link is the same as the code in the edit button to that revision on my test page. Chico Venancio (talk) 14:50, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
Sorry Chico Venancio , I CLEARLY hadn't had any coffee yet when I tried that this morning. How's this for you? For me the left image could be a bit more to the left (on my 17' laptop). Ciell (talk) 15:54, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
Hey Ciell, fixing the issue you mentioned got me into several other issues so I redid a bit of the work on the banner. Tested it with several resolutions on Chrome, Firefox and Edge, as well as Chrome and Firefox on android. I think it should look good in all platforms and across screen sizes, being a pretty simple design. Here is the final HTML. Chico Venancio (talk) 22:32, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
That looks way better Chico Venancio: example onwiki. Now, did you check the banner just on your computer, or also on iPad, iPhone and Android? Ciell (talk) 12:12, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
Only Windows and android, I don't have access to iOS devices. But I did try out the Chrome and Firefox mobile device emulation to be as thorough as possible. Chico Venancio (talk) 12:15, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
I turned it on for android and laptop/desktop, logged-in Portuguese users in Brazil. It will show 5 times every 86.400 seconds (day) Ciell (talk) 12:25, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
This would make this banner request to difficult for me to implement. Maybe another admin can do this? Ciell (talk) 13:30, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
Hi Chico Venancio, I switched of the daily banner, and replaced it with a weekly banner. But this one will show in the named ten countries and both anons and logged in. (campaign and the same banner) Ciell (talk) 17:50, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
