CentralNotice CentralNotice (calendar) Archive

The purpose of this page is to track the intended use of CentralNotice banners, and to provide contact information as to the banner's "sponsor". This also improves transparency: it gives the community the ability to comment on banners and to appropriately schedule them. Certain times (for instance, for WMF fundraising banners, steward elections, or referenda) may be reserved by the Foundation. That is, we certainly won't postpone the fundraiser because there's no banner time available. However, in all cases, project sponsors should be sensitive to the overall banner needs and mindful of the obligation to minimize the banners.

Remember to consider whether CentralNotice is the right tool for the job: would your notice work as well using watchlist notices or sitenotice? Also remember to be judicious in your use of the tool, restricting it to just what's needed. Overuse hurts us all. Comments about banner campaign scheduling on talk.
Past requests are archived here.

Remember that you must add a campaign to the calendar before enabling it. See also the request page.
