stewnoms_mobile is throwing JavaScript errors on mobile[edit]

`stewnoms_mobile` banner throws an exception on mobile due to accessing `this.log` which does not exist. return this.log( 'could not locate #stewnoms' ); This may be contributing to the error spike we are seeing on mobile.

Please let me know when the edit to Steward Elections Notice has been resolved. Thanks in advance! Jdlrobson (talk) 17:45, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

@Jdlrobson: Thanks for the message. The banner has a in-banner JavaScript so it is only displayed to administrators. If you have any ideas how to fix that issue for mobile and you're willing to help in resolving it, please be my guest. If I can help with anything too, please let me know. Thank you, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:22, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
You'll need to use mw.user.getGroups() to locate admins. The log line needs to be removed asap though! I'm not sure what that's trying to reference. Jdlrobson (talk) 18:36, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for reporting this! The mobile banner has been disabled. I've also fixed the JavaScript, but it should be tested on a test mobile campaign (for example, on aa.wikibooks) before being re-enabled. Please see T214330. Thanks!!! --AGreen (WMF) (talk) 21:35, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Blocking All Banners[edit]

How do I, as a user, block all banners? They interfere with the function of the site.—Chbarts (talk) 00:39, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Redirecting pointers from Meta:RFH[edit]

With the separation of CN rights and Meta administrator rights, it seems appropriate to remove links that point to Meta:RfH. To where would like such pointers by made? CentralNotice/Request? or maybe a subpage of that where there are specific requirements, eg. stewards' elections translations. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:22, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Permissions for cloning[edit]

Hello, I'm trying to see how I can create a banner that I could later use for a campaign, since 'Clone' button here https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralNoticeBanners/Edit/Community_banner_templatev2 or https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralNoticeBanners/Edit/Community_banner_templatev2?withJS=MediaWiki:CentralNotice_Banner_Template_Intro.js seems inactive for me. Should I request any permission? Thanks! --Toniher (talk) 20:47, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Hola Toniher. Those buttons will only work for central notice administrators. However you can copy/paste the contents of MediaWiki:Centralnotice-template-Community banner templatev2 and amend it as desired to test how it'd look. Notwithstanding to see how the banner will look you'll need to ask a centralnotice admin (me, for example) to create the banner in the interface. You could also request centralnotice admin access, but currently it is restricted to people that does work with centralnotice regularly. Seddon (WMF) could provide further help if needed.
