Discussion[edit]

So... the details would have to be discussed with CentralNotice admin depending on what other banners are running at that time. The general idea is the following...

  • The project is meant to get people to participate to the effort around Mid-October / Mid December (this is not a contest, there is no hard set beginning and ending dates)
  • This is at the same time a content production drive and an awareness of the existence of Wikiquote. So we would like to run a banner which will be visible on Wikiquote (for wikiquote regularly active participants), but also on Wikipedia (to bring attention on the campaign)
  • This suggest a banner which will not be a high-frequency/full two-month duration, but rather a peak at the beginning (around early October), followed by a more discreet banner or some reminders during the rest of the campaign. I am aware of banner fatigue and that several banners are always running at the same time and do not want to impose.
  • The initial peak would ideally be made on all languages Wikipedia/Wikiquote to bring attention to the largest and foster the creation of a local effort. However, each community organize itself around local portals (about 10 languages participated the two previous years), so it feels that the lower frequency of banners in the second part of the calendar could probably focus only on languages in which there is a dedicated effort.
  • To be discussed...

Hi @Flávia Varella, I can create a banner for you, but it will just be a standard banner. If you have specific wishes like the ones above, on style and fonts, I would advise you to look for someone (a Wikimedia volunteer?) that can design and test the specific banner for you. A CN admin (like me) can create the campaign to use that specific banner in. Ciell (talk) 08:49, 20 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Discussion[edit]

  • @Ed Erhart (WMF): Thanks for the mock-ups. Do you think it makes sense to have the close button and translate section included in the mock-up? Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 21:20, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Hi @DerHexer: we'll have a close button in the final banner. For translations, we're doing Arabic, Bahasa, English, French, German, Hindi, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish, and we'll match the banner language with the translated landing page and other content. We have thought about leaving the translation open for other contributions, but are also concerned that someone will see the banner in their language, but will be disappointed that the landing page isn't. What's your recommendation? Based on last week's conversation, I just updated the banner diet – 100%, with decreased frequency for logged in and out users. What do you think? Finally, we'll reach out to User:Romaine to coordinate our banner diet with WLM's. Anything we are missing? MPourzaki (WMF) (talk) 19:12, 1 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @MPourzaki (WMF): It's pretty common practice to have banner texts translated but only a reduced number of languages of the landing page. Translators could decide to include that into their translations (“English landing page”) or could help with localization of the landing page (which should generally be translatable beyond the languages you provide). Can you add links to the campaign and banner(s) here as well so that it's easier to find them? Thanks in advance! Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 10:36, 8 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Aced: I've adjusted the banner to look similar to File:Wikimania2022 banner-three color mockup.png and checked the preview on desktop and mobile. Does it work for you, too? For me, it doesn't look super fancy but does what was planned. With your approval we could create the campaign, etc. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 12:25, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@DerHexer: looks great, thanks a lot! One comment – if possible, I think we can remove the button "Register" as the banner looks somewhat too big, especially on mobile. (On a technical note, I might be away today, so pinging also Omar sansi & ELappen (WMF) who are involved in banner design and can communicate if I'm absent). Aced (talk) 17:17, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Aced, Omar sansi, and ELappen (WMF): Alright, I've created the campaign and updated the banner. Please check the preview on desktop and mobile. When you confirm it, I will enable the campaign. @WMF: An HTML/CSS version would make things so much easier, maybe take that into concern for next year. Thank you! Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 17:45, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks, and agreed! Will definitely push that for next year. Desktop and mobile look good to me, also want Omar_sansi to weigh in and see if there is anything outstanding related to translations ELappen (WMF) (talk) 18:56, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @DerHexer, How can we pre-set the languages of the "Translatable banner messages" section? We want to had some languages presetted. And thanks to you and @Ciell for your help!!! Omar sansi (talk) 20:18, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

To help with more translations for this year's banner, I've already copied last years banners (link for translations).

NB: securepoll link, landing page link, etc still need to be updated in the banners. Translators would like to get an early start in translations.
Both banners still need a script review before going live, would you be able to do this @DerHexer? Ciell (talk) 08:50, 28 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There are no scripts in the banner right now. —DerHexer (Talk) 23:35, 28 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks @DerHexer! And the style is up to date as well? Ciell (talk) 18:15, 30 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ciell: I'm not sure what you mean. It's not my banner, and if the WMF (@MPossoupe (WMF):) is okay with the style, I'm also fine with it. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 17:58, 3 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks! Campaign is now also ready here. @MPossoupe (WMF) Since the voting eligibility is quite complex, the banner will be shown to all logged in users, even if the are not eligible for voting at the moment of the elections. Ciell (talk) 18:47, 3 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, @Ciell and @DerHexer,
It's ok if shown to all logged users. Also regarding the style, same as the one of last year, banner is good to go.
Thanks
MPossoupe (WMF) (talk) 20:37, 7 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @MPossoupe (WMF), thanks for the review.
From our side we are still waiting for an updated landingpage link and securepoll link. If my memory serves me right (and please correct me if I am wrong!) we encountered some problems with especially the latter in last years elections, so it might be wise to set this up in time and test before the banner goes live. Ciell (talk) 09:33, 9 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @Ciell,
The landing page will be this one: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_elections/2022/Community_Voting
From there, voters will have to click on the button to land on the voting page.
Let me know if there is something else we can provide.
Many thanks

Hi @Ciell and @DerHexer,
The community vote period has been changed. New dates: 6th 16th August 2022 → 30th August 2022.
Can you, please, adjust the campaign accordingly?
Many thanks MPossoupe (WMF) (talk) 08:46, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MPossoupe (WMF): 30th August 23:59 UTC? That's how I changed it (with start time 6th August 0:00 UTC). Wikimedia_Foundation_elections/2022/Community_Voting doesn't seem to be up to date. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 11:18, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think @MPossoupe (WMF) might have meant 16th? Ciell (talk) 16:29, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, it's not pretty clear how they want it to be changed, tbh. ;) —DerHexer (Talk) 16:43, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ciell @DerHexer,
my bad, it is from 16th August at 00:00 UTC to 30th August 23:59 UTC.
Sorry for the confusion.
Many thanks MPossoupe (WMF) (talk) 17:00, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @MPossoupe (WMF): just to be clear, you do not want the banner to have a direct link to the SecurePoll (for instance under the blue "vote now" button), like we had last year? (preview of the banner now) Ciell (talk) 14:37, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @Ciell,
Yes, correct. No direct link to securePoll. Clicking on the button will redirect to the community voting page.
I have a look at the preview, the link on the button is correct.
Many thanks, ⁣

I think that in the case that WMDE staff will implement the banner and there are no further comments by other CentralNotice administrators, just go ahead. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 14:00, 14 June 2022 (UT

Discussion[edit]

@Ciell: I saw you noticed a previous request (CentralNotice/Request/Change The Story) this is the replacement now the project has changed. Is it practical to have a banner that consists entirely of an image as suggested? Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 13:19, 30 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Richard, I personally cannot create a banner from a single image, no. Maybe @DerHexer knows? Ciell (talk) 18:50, 30 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Good to know, I see if DerHexer can confirm either way if it's possible and then we may need to change the design to be regular text and an image. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 14:55, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Victuallers: Pinging you so that you know the request is live and can see what is being asked. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 15:50, 30 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Richard Nevell (WMUK): Thanks Richard, I have noted this at the WIR discussion so our members are aware. Feel free to say hi there Victuallers (talk) 08:10, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ciell, Richard Nevell (WMUK), and Victuallers: I've created a banner which should do, please have a look at the preview. When you change the size of the screen, you will see that text size will not be adjusted (which results in small texts or overlayed text). Please tell me if that's okay with you or if we want to provide a scalable HTML version. Then a campaign could be created by Ciell, me or any other CN admin. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 18:14, 3 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you DerHexer for the contribution, I think thats as good as the original image. Victuallers (talk) 07:32, 4 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks DerHexer.
@Victuallers, @Richard Nevell (WMUK): has the community been notified about the banner, are they okay with it? Ciell (talk) 07:54, 4 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you DerHexer.
@Ciell Women In Red have been notified, should I also post a message on the Village Pump (miscellaneous) on en.wp? Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 12:07, 5 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, please do. In the mean time, WiR has a good track record so I have set up the campaign to go live tomorrow morning. The logged in campaign will show in 3 cycles (one per week), the anonymous visitors will see two impressions as a whole. Ciell (talk) 20:16, 5 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just noting that I adjusted the close button on this banner to be visible against the black background. Peter Coombe (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 09:06, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks Peter! Ciell (talk) 10:34, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I chanced upon this banner and checked the preview on mobile. Please note that it's greatly impaired as more than half of the image is cutoff, the remaining part does not make sense. See image here. There's a wide difference with what once sees on desktop, unless if you're not intending to target mobile users. – Ammarpad (talk) 09:55, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Hi @Ammarpad, this is indeed the consequence of what @DerHexer mentioned above: "When you change the size of the screen, you will see that text size will not be adjusted (which results in small texts or overlayed text). Please tell me if that's okay with you or if we want to provide a scalable HTML version." However, I do agree this is not a pretty site. :(
    (Courtesy ping for @Richard Nevell (WMUK) and @Victuallers, please be aware of this problem with the non-scaling banner.) Ciell (talk) 10:46, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the reporting @User:Ammarpad, I've just filed phabricator:T312206 on the unexpected banner behavior. Since 2/3 of the traffic in the UK seems to come from mobile (acc to stats.wikimedia.org), I have now turned the banner off, awaiting responses from others. Ciell (talk) 11:15, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ciell I can't reproduce the banner showing on mobile (tried enabling it in a test campaign on aa.wikipedia), could you? I think there's maybe just some miscommunication here. @Ammarpad mentioned they "checked the preview" which suggests they looked at the link above [1] with banner=change_the_story_july_2022 in the URL. Such preview links always cause the banner to show, regardless of any settings for desktop/mobile, logged-in/anon etc. Peter Coombe (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 11:45, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks Peter, for the quick follow up!
Enabled the campaign for logged in and aa.wikipedia now. Are you in the UK or should I turn the geotargetting off as well? Ciell (talk) 11:57, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am in the UK. Confirmed that it shows up on aa.wikipedia.org but not aa.m.wikipedia.org. I'm currently checking logs to see if we have any evidence there of it showing up on mobile unexpectedly. Peter Coombe (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 12:06, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, I checked the preview link posted by DerHexer above (I mentioned that already). I didn't come across the banner normally. – Ammarpad (talk) 12:12, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This banner was set to only target desktop computers, not the app or mobile sites. Your screenshot shows you were on the mobile site, but Peter is correct that our 'previews' (those shared by CN admins) force the banner to show up regardless the other campaign and banner settings. This is merely meant as a check for the visual representation of the banner. Ciell (talk) 12:19, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay @Ciell I checked the logs (took longer than expected as the Turnilo banner dashboard doesn't have data for the current day, so I had to dive into webrequests) and didn't see any instances of the banner being loaded on mobile user agents. So I think it's safe to close the bug and put the banner back up (remaining desktop only). Peter Coombe (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 12:28, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Great Peter, thanks. The banners are back up now. Ciell (talk) 14:06, 6 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Central Notice admin comments[edit]

Hi @Ammarpad, @T Cells , I have created a banner similar to the one we had last year, please review the preview, and feel free to start translations as well. I've reviewed the table on Commons, and choose to geotarget the participating countries (and so not 'global', as per some requests in the table), also taking into account the feedback we received from some communities last year. Same reason why the banner will not show every day, but one in ~5 days (but for the full period of the requested two months). Please let me know if the banner design is okay like this: I need you to check and confirm before I enable. Ciell (talk) 13:04, 3 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ciell, yes the preview looks OK. Also I have started adding the translations. Thanks. – Ammarpad (talk) 13:32, 3 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I apologize Ciell, I missed your ping. I ended up at "page does not exist". The preview worked pretty well when it was first turned on. I didn't know what went wrong, thereafter. That's strange, anyway. Thanks for your prompt action. T CellsTalk 18:59, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
