Francophone Contribution Month 2018 edit

Thanks Benoit Rochon for the calendar addition and for specifying the language, user registration and diet restrictions. On the other hand, using the notice for 2 months out of 12 is rather extreme and would benefit from some impact assessment on your end (maybe considering discussion participants or such?).

As a simple tweak to make sure that all users who log in know about the initiative while not being brought to hate it by an excessive repetition, you may further improve the diet by reducing it to 5 (or less) impressions every 2 weeks. Considering that there are many French-language wikis and that active users visit them with multiple devices, that will still mean seeing the notice dozens times, as opposed to hundreds in the currently proposed diet.

Hello Nemo, both notices are targeting two different public, within two timeframes. The first one (Jan) is for Wikimedians, then is March is for newcomers. As you suggest, I will improve the diet for no flooding. Best regards. Benoit Rochon (talk) 00:44, 5 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ItWikiCon banner edit

Ilario, the current banner is sending everyone's IP address to Google. The linked resource needs to respect the privacy policy. --Nemo 09:55, 9 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ilario: - Feel free to use the following call for the time being. But ideally fonts should be locally hosted.:
@font-face {
font-family: 'Montserrat';
font-style: normal;
src: local('Montserrat'), local('Montserrat'), url( format('woff2');}

@Nemo bis: @Seddon (WMF): I use Web Safe Fonts and they are universal fonts which comes pre-installed with the operating systems and browsers. There should not be lnked resources, is not it? I don't use Google fonts. --Ilario (talk) 19:11, 9 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ilario:, I think that Nemo is referring to the website the banners point to. The site is calling montserrat via googles font api. Seddon (WMF) (talk) 01:15, 10 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Also, the "close" button is not working and the diet is not set. I've already seen this banner hundreds of times. Please set a reasonable maximum number of impressions (5 is plenty) over the whole time, given the calendar mentions a whopping 6 weeks. --Nemo 12:13, 16 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Old campaigns being reused edit


I'm reusing some old campaigns for a read-only window that will happen on 2020-05-07. They are labelled 2019-04-11_Maintenance_window_XXX with XXX standing for a wiki name. This is normal.

The context is that they match databases clusters, here s3. When I created these campaigns last year, I didn't think about the fact that the could be reused. I've started investigations around renaming the campaigns to match the clusters, which would make things much clearer.

So please don't disable them because of the wrong date! :D

So it is not possible to rename campaigns. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 16:48, 5 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Trizek (WMF): Thanks for the heads up. Duplicating them (and saving the copy under a new name) does not solve the problem? Ciell (talk) 17:37, 5 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

POTY 2020 banners pushed back 7 days edit

Sincere apologies, but I've had to push the POTY 2020 banners on 7 days owing to some tech issues with the campaign setup. c/p Steinsplitter - is there anything else I need to do? firefly ( t · c ) 09:56, 12 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Since there will also be a banner running for all languages/all projects for the Movement Charter, I actually think these dates are a better option. :) R2 does still fall in the same week as the second Movement Charter banner, so you could try and contact JKoerner (WMF) and see if one of you could move back/forward, etc?

Fundraiser March 2024 edit

Hi @JBrungs (WMF), Would it be possible to start the fundraisers in March a bit later, for instance after the weekend / 10 March, because of the campaigns for international women's day and the activities world wide that might also want some attention of the non-registered people? Ciell (talk) 19:03, 12 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @Ciell
Yes, sorry. These campaigns moved back by a month anyway, I just hadn't adjusted CN yet. It is now updated in the calendar. JBrungs (WMF) (talk) 06:00, 13 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
