Update to Commons database to prepare for 3D file support[edit]

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

Description - The Multimedia team at the foundation is getting closer to enabling support for uploading and displaying 3D models on Commons. We have to do some work on the database to get ready for 3D file support. This means we'll need to put Commons in read-only mode for about 30 minutes to make this database change.

Metrics - As few contributors as possible are not caught by surprise with this temporary read-only period.

What banner(s) will you use? What will be your landing page?[edit]

CKoerner, is this request still a draft? If no, please list it on CentralNotice/Request (and while you are on it also on CentralNotice/Calendar), thanks! --Base (talk) 10:35, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Base, I think all the bits are now in the right place. Please let me know if I've missed something. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 14:25, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
Yeah seems fine to me :) @Seddon (WMF):, I assume you will be taking care of this, won't you? --Base (talk) 14:28, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
