Discussion[edit]

Banner text doesn't explain what "Draft recommendations by working groups of the Wikimedia 2030" are nor why should I care about them. Please reword. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:23, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

Made two banners and struck initial one, Martin. George Ho (talk) 19:59, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
Looks better, thanks. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:14, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Changed the proposed wording a little bit, see [1]. Could you review the banner, please? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:23, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

The following banner text looks fine: "Recommendations by Wikimedia strategy working groups on what to improve about the Wikimedia projects were published. They are drafts, your input is welcome." George Ho (talk) 19:32, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
As for the deadline, probably either the beginning or end of November. The WMF or working groups haven't given specific date yet on when the discussion ends. George Ho (talk) 19:34, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Could you get the banner text translated to few major languages? The link to translation interface is in the banner itself. Thanks! --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:54, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
I posted a help notice at Wikimedia Forum. George Ho (talk) 20:54, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Also answered one of questions. George Ho (talk) 21:31, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
  • I doubt IPs would be interested in this. Frankly, I'm not sure it's useful to have a broader notification than a watchlist notice for this. --Yair rand (talk) 22:01, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
    • Also, I don't think the proposed text ("on what/how to change about the Wikimedia projects") is accurate. The recommendations are mostly about our back-end support structures. --Yair rand (talk) 22:04, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
      • Struck out previous banner texts, and limiting banner to just logged-in users. BTW, what are "back-end support structures"? It looks too technical for many users. George Ho (talk) 22:27, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
        • By support structures, I was referring to our various off-wiki organizations like the Wikimedia Foundation and chapters and other affiliates. --Yair rand (talk) 22:30, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
          • Amended banner text. George Ho (talk) 23:02, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Central Notice admin comments[edit]

Approved Approved, campaign settings to be clarified. @George Ho: Could you please clarify when should your banner be displayed? "August 2019 → October or November 2019" is too ambigous (and long). Is there any deadline, or timeframe when you would like to attract more users? I also assume you want to target only logged in users. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:17, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
