Central Notice admin comments[edit]

  • @Ritamaliqi: Please request banner campaign at least 10 days before the start of the campaign as per CentralNotice/Request. Often we need to give advice on what to do before we can enable the campaign.
    • In your case, “What countries will your campaign target? sq, en, sv, de, fr, nl, it, es, pt, no, fi, da & ar” makes no sense. These are language codes and not country names. Please provide both: language codes and country names.
    • For larger communities, a local notification would be required when anonymous users in a wide range of countries would be targeted.
    • Please also provide translations in the banner and landing page in all the languages you want to reach. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 11:38, 24 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @DerHexer thank you for the information, as it is our first time requesting an central notice banner. Next campaign we will provide all the requested details on time. Ritamaliqi (talk) 08:51, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Ritamaliqi: No worries, I can still create the campaign but I will need the requested information on countries, and you can still let the local communities know about the campaign and start with translations. Does this make sense? :) Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 15:50, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Hi @DerHexer I just added the requested information on countries. Ritamaliqi (talk) 10:07, 1 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Ritamaliqi: Thanks for that! You intend to target anonymous users in many large countries where other campaigns currently take place (see CentralNotice/Calendar, please let the organizers of the other campaigns and the local village pumps know that this campaign is planned and might overlap with others. For global campaigns, local ambassadors are recommended who can spread the word to their communities so that you are not on your own with preparations. In case that's too much work for now, is there a chance to postpone the campaign and look for a better time and give yourself more time for preparation? Otherwise I fear that this will be learnings for the next edition. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 12:23, 1 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
