Central Notice admin comments[edit]

Approved Approved provided there will be no further objections. @JukoFF: Could you please verify the banner looks good, and add localisations through this interface? There are many languages listed in your request, and each should have the localisation in the Translation interface. Let me know once that's ready. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:57, 11 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Martin Urbanec: A'm added some improvements. It's possible to add WMRU logo at right? And also contest logo and WMRU logo should be changed for EN version (to English versions — File:Alumni_and_Professors_project_Logo_En.svg, File:Wikimedia_RU_logo_vertical.svg). --Kaganer (talk) 21:52, 13 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Martin Urbanec: Dear Martin, Any response??? --Kaganer (talk) 14:05, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Hello, sorry for the delay! I'm not sure if the logo would fit there, there is not a lot of space in the banner in its current form. I'll try to find a way to change the logos for English banner. Best, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:21, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Kaganer: Banner logo should be fixed for English, could you confirm? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:29, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Done as [1], happy to add other languages as translations are added. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:38, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Martin Urbanec: Thanks! Please also add WPs on languages of Russia (official status somewhere in Russia) - ady / av / ba / bxr / ce / crh / cv / kbd / kk / koi / krc / kv / lbe / lez / mdf / mhr / mrj / myv / olo / os / pnt / sah / tt / tyv / udm / vep / xal . For all these languages may be shown Russian logo with the translated text (fallback to Russian). --Kaganer (talk) 17:07, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
In my opinion, code <p>{{{text1}}}<br />{{{text2}}}</p> will be better to some improved: for languages without translation should be text in fallback language (Russian for all listed above).--Kaganer (talk) 17:31, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Martin Urbanec:, Thank you so much, everything works !!! JukoFF (talk) 08:25, 20 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
