Wikipedia Day US 2019[edit]

What is the purpose of the campaign? How will you measure the success of the campaign?[edit]

Description - To attract greater participation at regional Wikipedia Day events in the US. These are usually the largest non-editathon meetups of the calendar year, often take the form of a one-day miniconference, are suitable for newbies looking to become more engaged, and have been held annually in New York City since 2010, in Los Angeles since 2017, and sometimes elsewhere. This request is unusual because we are asking for subnational banners for local events in particular US states.

Metrics - Will be measured by participation at the meetups.

  • Oppose Oppose. CentralNotices are being heavily overused. Advertising a meetup is not an appropriate use of a CentralNotice. Use a watchlist notice, or post on the village pump. --Yair rand (talk) 23:31, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Central Notice admin comments[edit]

  • I am not sure we can geotarget to specific US States. The geotargetting feature of this extension only contains the United States as a whole.. @Seddon (WMF) for advice (I am really sorry for three pings in a row already, but I don't know who else to ask). —MarcoAurelio (talk) 23:27, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Landing Page - WLE Italy

Discussion[edit]

In 2018 we had the CentralNotice for WLE only for the first half of the month, because in the second half it was dedicated to a fundraising campaign of Wikimedia Italy. That created an unequal treatment with the other national contests, with reflections on visits and number of uploaded images. For 2019 we request the CentralNotice for WLE for the whole month, as it happens for the other national editions of WLE. --CristianNX (talk) 15:07, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

@CristianNX: WLE has a two month window that campaigns can run so why not bring the italian alps WLE earlier by two weeks? The tax campaign is tied a deadline and is not very flexible. That would be the best outcome for everyone. Seddon (WMF) (talk) 08:55, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
@Seddon (WMF): the national tax campaign of WMIT move from Central- to Site Notice and interest a lot of periods, that are not predictable for non members of the chapter. In this situation is hard to organize or to communicate something about the next edition. With this request we want only to know if it's possible to "book" the CentralNotice for the WLE campaign, as happens for the other national editions. --CristianNX (talk) 14:45, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
@CristianNX: Yes it is possible to book. I will help coordinate timing with WMIT :) Seddon (WMF) (talk) 15:29, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Dear Seddon (WMF), could you please take a look at this request? We'd like to see this banner live to make the event visible for community in Indonesia. Please let us know your advise. Thank you. ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 05:40, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

@Seddon (WMF): Hi Seddon, it's been two weeks since my last ping. Is there anything that we have to do beforehand? Our scholarship application is due less than two weeks, and we would like to invite more Wikimedians in Indonesia to join. So live announcement banner would help.
