Hi Merle von Wittich (WMDE), why would you like to use the CN banner for this, if you only want to target the German speaking Wikipedia? Did you consider to just use the site notice of the German Wikipedia? Ciell (talk) 10:36, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

@Ciell: regarding your question:

Sitenotice looks like an embedded banner under the main headline, so it is less noticed by the reader. Other reasons why we use Central Notice instead of Site Notice:

  • no design, only html, csss possible
  • no tracking possibilities
  • no configuration options or targeting possible
  • can be used only by community (at least in de-WP we as an organization don't use it)
  • previous birthday communication was also via CentralNotice, so we follow this logic

@Yair rand: We used the Actionweek projectpage for the proposal of the banners: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikimedia_Deutschland/Neue_Ehrenamtliche/Kampagnen/Aktionswoche_Wikipedia_2021#Bannerentw%C3%BCrfe

@Merle von Wittich (WMDE): Thank you for the link. Did you talk about this with the community somewhere: is there support for showing a CN banner about this event? (Please be aware of our guidelines for banners)
You are correct that banners are not made with wikicode and we use html instead: we do not, however, use images like the ones designed in the link. Images and text should be supplied separately. I am not a CN notice admin who can design such flashy banners and campaigns (sorry!), but I am willing to help you through the process where ever I can, please don't be put off or offended by my questions. Ciell (talk) 10:30, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

@Ciell:, there was no direct feedback regarding the banner design from the community. But the project page was communicated on different community pages and it is our "standard" to present the banners and ask for feedback on our project pages :) And regarding your concern towards our "flashy" banners: I think there is a misunderstanding here. We are currently working on the HTML implementation and the banner will be implemented by my colleagues from the software department – as long as there are no objections from your side :) But a very big thank you to you that you still offer support! --Merle von Wittich (WMDE) (talk) 11:13, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
