Central Notice admin comments[edit]

@Jamie Tubers: I've created the campaign and banner. While I check which are all the African and Caribbean countries which I need to add to the geolocation list, you can try out the banner. Please approve it before I will enable the campaign. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 22:50, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hi DerHexer, thanks for your prompt response. Everything looks good. Except I see the end date of the campaign is set to 1st October 2021. Is this because it's a test or it's a mistake? Thank you again!--Jamie Tubers (talk) 23:05, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Jamie Tubers: I think that I would have corrected it with the geolocation list. ;D Thanks for the open eyes! The campaign is now enabled. The banner will be shown 5 times in a row and the cookie reset after a week. Please ping me when some adjustments are needed. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 23:08, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
