Short notices want to be noticed[edit]

I do understand that three of four requests on CentralNotice/Request page are short notices but I believe they have right to be commented on, right? --Ата (talk) 05:56, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

CentralNotice/Request needs better staffing[edit]

I sometimes handle a couple of requests for CentralNotice, but it's not my main area of work here. In any case I feel CentralNotice/Request needs either better staffing or a better process or both. Any ideas how to make this more efficient? To mention one: I myself find the CN/C rather unhelpful TBH. Not being able to see, visually, the clashes between campaigns is rather unhelpful and I'd go with either a Google Calendar or a Phabricator Calendar view.

I think it would be easier to suppress the subpage and instead focus on the one tool for collaboration that has a tangible ROI, i.e. CentralNotice/Calendar. It's easier to watch and maintain and has direct benefits for all CN admins, but the new request page has damaged it greatly (some rogue CentralNotice administrators don't schedule their banners as expected, or even remove content from the calendar without archiving it). --Nemo 13:42, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Messages for Nynorsk [1] shows up as Bokmål [2]. Message for Bokmål is corrected from the previous version with spelling error and wrong year.[3] The Nynorsk message (nn) should be "Det er no ope for søknader om stipend til Wikimania 2018." and "Sjå hovudsida for meir informasjon". The word "hovudsida" should probably be "søkesida" or "søkesida på Meta" at Nynorsk and "søkesiden" or "søkesiden på Meta" at Bokmål. — Jeblad 15:20, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
