  1. Support Support Fajne. tsca [re] 11:14, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

    Przydałaby się jeszcze strona informująca jak edytować, zamiast zbioru linków - czasami nieaktualizowanych dinozaurów. Przykuta 19:35, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
    Zgodnie z tym co piszą ludzie od fundacji to co mówisz nie jest prawdziwe. Ludzie którzy chcą dać kasę to nie są ludzie którzy chcą edytować. Wyraźnie była informacja że Fundacja stara się nie namawiać do edytowania w tej zbiórce bo to tylko odstrasza. PMG 09:06, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
    Jestem empirykiem. Nie zgadzam się z tym co mniemają ludzie z fundacji. Nie znają naszej kultury. Nie dostali jeszcze większego grosza od pl czytelników, mimo swoich pompatycznych, zupełnie dla nas nietrafnych banerów. Przykuta 21:28, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

  10. Support Support Za. Motywujące dla tych co nie chcą edytować - pokazuje, że mogą przysłużyć się inaczej. Niewielki minus to polaryzacja, skoro już edytuję/edytowałem, to nie muszę wpłacać. Nova 12:10, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
  11. Support Support Za. Każdy może się przysłużyć. A jak ktoś pokocha, to będzie i edytował i wpłacał. Psychology 04:56, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

  6. Support Support Bardzo dobre i nawiązuje do konkretu, a nie abstraktu - ludzie lubią wiedzieć na co idzie kasa, a tutaj jest zawarty konkretny przykład. MOs810 20:14, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

  9. Support Support Doskonałe. MadBunny 18:15, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
  10. Support Support W zasadzie może być, choć ktoś może to odebrać jako robienie z niego idioty (że niby nie wiem co to serwer?). Podtytuł "robimy zrzutę" mnie bardzo drażni. Lepiej byłoby to zastąpić "robimy zbiórkę pieniędzy". Psychology 04:38, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
  11. Serwery na prąd - to wiemy.. a na co robimy zrzutę? Na wódkę? (Ja nie piję :P ) Za mało realistyczne. 83.10.9.193 10:26, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

"Dorzuć się" do mnie nie przemawia, nikt by tak do mnie nie powiedział i nie spoufaliłam się na tyle z Wiki.

  1. Cijenimo trud, no previše je gramatičkih pogrješaka. Treba biti u duhu hrvatskog jezika, no umjesto toga, tekst izgleda kao strojni prijevod. Kubura 23:02, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
  2. Predloži kako bi sadržaj poruke trebao glasiti, tako da bude u duhu hrv. jezika i da pritom smisao ostane nepromenjen. Verujem da će Anton008 uvažiti predlog. Ja bih to učinio, ali ipak ne poznajem toliko dobro hrvatski jezik, pa bih verovatno napravio više štete nego koristi. Pozdrav! mickit 07:36, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
  3. Ova poruka je po mom mišljenju u duhu hrvatskog jezika, govori o tome kako nam malo fali do 100.000 članaka i da bi baš zato trebali pomoći.-Anton008 10:16, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

  1. Molto gradito nella versione in inglese (ma non ancora provato), non vedo perché non dovrebbe funzionare anche da noi. Lascio "non profit" anche se tecnicamente sarebbe "senza scopo di lucro", "non a scopo di lucro" o "non lucrativo". Può essere riformulato perché funzioni anche negli altri progetti WMF, che nel loro insieme sono il quinto gruppo di siti piú visitato al mondo secondo comScore. Che ne dite? --Nemo 21:32, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
  2. A me piaceva anche in inglese, però credo che il dato citato si riferisca al complesso dei progetti WMF, non alla sola WP. User:Elitre

Commenti:

  • "L'unico sito non profit ecc." non mi sembra il massimo della chiarezza, perché di primo acchito uno pensa ai "5 siti non profit più visitati" e ha l'impressione di qualcosa che non va. Ci vuole un momento a capire che è sottinteso solo "siti" e non "siti non profit". Forse sarebbe meglio "L'unico non profit tra i 5 siti più visitati al mondo". --Vermondo 12:14, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

  1. Clever, but I worry that active links besides donate links might detour readers away from the donation page Ocaasi 23:45, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
    • So we just don't link 'em.  :) Is the us vs them thing an issue here? Philippe (WMF) 22:40, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
  2. I like it. V85 13:57, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
  3. I love it personally but ZZ Top might not be so known for every our reader. --Aphaia 10:25, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
  4. Like that one. Note that different language versions should use own words from Special:Allpages, and they could eliminate things that sound too strange (nonetheless, it's rather important to show how big our database is, not so much to choose words everyone knows). —Pill (talk) 12:57, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
    1. Point taken, Pill. So my full support. --Aphaia 06:14, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
  5. If you have language-specific replacements for AA Milne and ZZ Top you should post them here! For Turkish: Tarkan & Volkan Demirel --17:10, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
    1. +1 yes. I like this one but you're right having options for language specific localization would be VERY nice :) Jalexander 22:25, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
  6. If we already have "everything", where's the need for "growing"? I would prefer seeing the emphasis on our unperfectness and vulnarability. Ziko 13:23, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

  1. May be good in a bunner like "we're making people smarter since 2001", but 'look smart' is bad idea. Lvova 12:07, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

  3. Too touchy, people might be insulted. "Making people smarter" does not bring personal connection (aka "so let people pay for it"). Renata3 02:03, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

  4. Support this version. Most people realize that Wikipedia is different.Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 17:10, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
  5. Same question of CoE. Also iirc some firm uses (or has used) a copy "think difference" or whatsoever. We could be seen a copycat, I'm afraid. --Aphaia 06:58, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
  6. Support. The difference is inherent, self-evident, part of the project at its roots. No worries about copycats; 'different' is a generic concept unless it's literally "Think different" which would be a problem. Ocaasi 21:10, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
  7. +1 to Coe. Till Mletzko (WMDE) 14:03, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

  10. For some reason it reminded me of "I'm not like everybody else" song by the Kinks, Wikipedia is'nt your typical encyclopedia either, its much larger and frankly cooler than any traditional encyclopedia.Theo10011 17:49, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
  11. Oppose. Too appley "think different", and per 'different from what?' but not quite interesting enough to bother clicking. Chzz 00:58, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Comments:

  1. Trying to imply a sense of ownership.Theo10011 13:41, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
  2. It's also their work. Like I said above, supporters probably often fancy themselves as sometimes-editors as well, even if only IP. I think it's important that we foster that self-identity that they are "the kind of person that contributes to Wikipedia", even if all they've done in the past is correct typos. Gigs 01:02, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
  3. Same problem with the 'this page' issue, since screenshots of it above unsavory content will look very bad. Otherwise, I like. Consider changing 'this page' to 'Wikipedia'. Also, support 'our' work has a bit of the us/them issue. Not sure what the best ask would be, but maybe something different Ocaasi 11:07, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
    Or just "this". But I'm not sure that a general statement on the whole project will work as well as a more direct one to the actual page the reader is viewing. And I don't think that "unsavory content" would be a big issue. Let's try both (also the following one). --Nemo 07:27, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

  1. Love the idea! Wording nitpicks: languages and countries are kinda the same thing. replace it with something else (editors? edits? readers?). Also would replace entries with articles. Renata3 01:07, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
    Sorry, languages and countries are very different things. For example, English is a language, spoken in countries like England, Australia, New Zealand and the USA Jebus989 20:05, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
    Not sure if Renata3 meant "the same thing" as in languages and countries are the same concept; perhaps he meant they both have the same effect. 119.74.135.219 10:33, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
  2. Perhaps the number of users (readers) can be included? Hundreds of millions if I'm not wrong. Also, you might want to tread carefully with the no. of countries listed. 270 – does that include unrecognised and irredentist states? 119.74.135.219 10:33, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
  3. A nice idea. It seems a little wordy, but the message somehow takes away that negative.
  4. Why $35? That might be too much for some people. Lexicografía 21:47, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
    $35 is our average donation --Deniz (WMF) 22:49, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
    Average or median? One 100,000 $ donation and nine 10 $ produces an average of 10,009 $, whereas the median and more likely donation is only 10 $. --88.130.160.172 10:24, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
    Average. --Nemo 08:09, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
  5. Like it, but I'd use a smaller amount too. User:Elitre
  6. Reasonable idea, but I don't know what the 'animation' is all about. $35 seems high, but some-odd-number is good. $23? $17? something lesser. As above - median, not mean. Chzz 00:45, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
  7. I began drawing a picture of the WMF becoming PBS with this banner. :)) --Sky Harbor (talk) 07:50, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
  8. Countries is definitely wrong. And I don't think that throwing a money amount into the reader's face is a good idea to improve click-rate, given previous tests. --Nemo 08:09, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
    Quite possible but we've found that improving click rate is by far not the most important thing. Banners that have something about donating are tending to have a higher conversion rate and more donations. The "curious" ones just have people click and not donate. Jalexander 07:36, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
  9. I don't think having a suggested figure in the banner is a good idea, that is far better done on the landing page. Otherwise it's not bad. the wub "?!" 23:31, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Comments: Note: Love the first two sentences. "Please consider" is a little too polite and passive. Donate Today seems more to the point. Rhandler (WMF)

"Donate now" instead of "Please consider" and I am confident about this one Till Mletzko (WMDE) 10:00, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
It is in my nature to tend towards politeness rather than commands, but I agree; "donate now" is better than "please consider..." So I support this banner so long as that is changed. --Bodnotbod 13:22, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Maybe instead it could say: Wikipedia is there for you every day. Be there for Wikipedia today. Ocaasi 05:58, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
I presume you mean that it would substitute the local site name? As in, "Wikibooks is there for you every day..."? Philippe (WMF) 17:19, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
I figure the majority of funds will come from Wikipedia. But substitutions can be made on any ad. I think they mock-up better without 'Meta' as a placeholder. User:Ocaasi 01:20, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
