Meta has a small active community. When a normal user requires the assistance of an administrator or bureaucrat for some particular task, it is not always easy to find one. This page helps users find one when they need one; asking specific admins directly via their talk pages is one way to elicit a fast response.

@Valentín Muro (WMAR): A bit confusing. Should this be enabled at Commons and all es projects or only on es projects? --Glaisher (talk) 15:56, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
@Glaisher: Sorry for that. Yes, we'd like to have this on all es projects, including Commons. Would that be possible? Thanks. --Valentín Muro (WMAR) (talk) 16:02, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
@Valentín Muro (WMAR): There is a problem for HTTPS users. The given website is HTTP only and we only use protocol-relative URLs in CN banners as it would cause security warnings in some browsers. https (error 102 when link is clicked) - http (works fine). --Glaisher (talk) 16:32, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
A possible solution is linking to a page on (es?)wiki from the banner and then from that page to the actual website. --Glaisher (talk) 16:34, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
@Glaisher: Thanks. You can point the banner to thanks! --Valentín Muro (WMAR) (talk) 19:40, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done campaign. banner (preview). Also updated the calendar accordingly. --Glaisher (talk) 09:09, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
@Glaisher: Can you review the banner please? I think it says it will be displayed from Oct 13th to Oct 13th. We are not being able to see the banner anywhere.--Valentín Muro (WMAR) (talk) 13:11, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Fixed. --Glaisher (talk) 14:27, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
