Case of campaigns targeting newcomers on wikis using Growth team features[edit]

Dear fellow CentralNotice admins,

The Growth team has deployed on several wikis (list) some features that help newcomers to make their first steps.

If the banner you create:

then you need an extra step to involve newcomers.

On these wikis, new users will automatically be redirected to their personal homepage. To help them finding back the campaign, you have to create or edit MediaWiki:Growth-homepage-banner locally for the time of the campaign.

This message uses wikitext. Be careful though to keep it short, and with a small image if you use one. The message can be something like "You want to participate to [name fo the campaign]. Click here!". Images used in the local message must have 52px as max size and be frameless.

This has been documented there.

If you have any question, please ping me!
