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

Description - As per our reached community consensus in 2020 Viquipèdia:Presa de decisions/2020/Gestió dels bàners, that has been repeatedly ignored (1, 2) and infringed:

It is decided by majority consensus, without any major objection, that the banners that head the Wikimedia projects in Catalan appear only and if they are previously translated into Catalan and only in the following cases: 1) Initiatives promoted or with approved, direct participation of Wikimedia projects in Catalan language; 2) Economic fundraising; 3) Exceptional health or emergency site notices (in the Catalan-speaking territory or globally). Any other types of notices are decided not to adopt a privileged positioning as banners. Even in these three allowed cases, it is accepted to discuss them individually (case per case) in case that the community understands that they may generate conflict or if their purpose is not clear -especially when it comes to fundraising.

Please, apply finally these rules so that ca.wiki is excluded from the major system of CentralNotice requests. Our community is significantly fed-up that this consensus is not being applied, and this recurrent topic pops up in our Wikipedia's Village Pump with an increasing loss of trust towards Meta and the interwiki global processes. Thank you. Xavier Dengra (MESSAGES) 08:55, 5 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Central Notice admin comments[edit]

@Xavier Dengra if I'm not missing something, there was currently one banner campaign targeting cawikipedia, which I deactivated [1]. --Johannnes89 (talk) 18:11, 10 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you @Johannnes89. Not only I am seeing currently one banner about Wikimania being deployed in ca.wiki without a prior message in the Village Pumps, but it is not even translated yet. The consensus in our community is clear (about being visible only after translation and once the Catalan community is directly involved), and it is also to be applied in all Catalan Wikimedia projects. It should not be patched with the current campaigns, but rather deactivate most of the message by default and as per the future norm. Best!

Thanks, I didn't notice this campaign. It seems to be done by the WMF [2] so you would need to discuss it with them (same applies for other WMF campaigns that might come up at cawiki, e.g. fundraising related, where volunteer CN admins don't have a say). @SGrabarczuk (WMF) fyi.
There is no way to deactivate campaigns for certain languages per default (actually per default campaigns are not active anywhere and need to be activated for those languages requested). We can only try to remember your community consensus when there are new campaign requests that might affect cawiki. Johannnes89 (talk) 09:22, 12 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I agree that we take this seriously. For example, the Wiki Loves Folklore 2024 campaign targets all languages except Catalan. It doesn't make much sense to me to keep this open as a request, instead I've added that information to CentralNotice/Usage guidelines. —DerHexer (Talk) 11:46, 16 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you very much for the replies and for respecting our consensus and language guidelines. It means a lot for us that our voice is taken into account and that each language community can still have some interface control of what is displayed in their projects. Kudos to both, @DerHexer and @Johannnes89! Xavier Dengra (MESSAGES) 19:30, 29 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
