  • Support Support, of course. Each year new works come into Public Domain, and so this contest is regularly being organized. (See 2016, 2017/2018.) It's important to widely announce it again in order both to invite participants to the contest and to increase awareness about public domain among Wikimedia projects users. Dr Bug (Vladimir V.

  • Please don’t put the first image in the banner, it’s too small to be used in any meaningful way. stjn[ru] 16:27, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Central Notice admin comments[edit]

@JukoFF: I came with a simplier banner design (for me to setup), see this example. I can try to get your desired design working, but since we're already after the proposed date of start and this can take an additional week or two (with success not guaranteed), I thought I'd ask if this simplier design is okay. Let me know! --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:57, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Banners are simplified. Now everything is okay? --Ctac (talk) 12:54, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
By the way, is banner statistics collected (clicks, views etc.)? Is it publicly available?--Ctac (talk) 13:01, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: We are waiting for your actions or comments. JukoFF (talk) 13:07, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
Tried to update my preview. Please have a look at MediaWiki:Centralnotice-template-public_domain_russia_2019, that's the real banner code. Try to update it to match your vision. You can copy it to a text document at your computer and save the document as "something.html". You can then open it in your browser. Best, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:40, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Change landing page by default (from EN to RU), please (because this banner only for readers from Russia): [1]. And strange pictures are shown. They must be aligned to the left and right edges, and the text in the center.--Ctac (talk) 10:35, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Huge request, still run the banner. less than 20 days left until the end of the contest :( JukoFF (talk) 12:08, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
@Seddon (WMF): I appeal to you, as the administrator who launched a similar banner last year [2]. Maybe you can us this year. Before the end of the contest, it lasted 15 days; Awesome huge thank you. JukoFF (talk) 19:11, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
Copied the banner from last year and adapted for this one. Please translate the banners and let me know. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:49, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Senks, done. JukoFF (talk) 20:30, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:38, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Thank you so much! JukoFF (talk) 23:24, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
JukoFF, I see you have done it only for Russian. Feel free to input the other translations through that page as well, you just need to switch the translation language at the top right. --Base (talk) 17:47, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
Base I would do it with joy, but my knowledge of Russian languages is very limited: ( JukoFF (talk) 23:24, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
JukoFF, I can relate to that, but there are some translations already done available on this page. --Base (talk) 23:38, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
Base That you correctly noticed. It is in my power :) JukoFF (talk) 23:56, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
