We are not a wild band, we sometimes need this banner, we don't like to be banned. Przykuta 12:57, 8 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Moving slogans to subpages[edit]

Hi. I don't see any reason why we shouldn't archive some of the "new" messages. Many have enough comments already. Banners with extraordinary positive feedback may qualify for Banner testing, so we probably should list them on Talk:Fundraising 2010/Banner testing before moving them to the subpages :) --Church of emacs talk · contrib 22:44, 25 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I'm being bold and moving banners which I think have enough comments (also marking some of them as discarded or "approved") or will benefit from being near similar messages with some comments. Actually I don't understand how we can request testing of an "approved" message. --Nemo 10:34, 7 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]

What makes WMF projects different[edit]

I strongly support banners underlining the projects' unique traits, such as being written in a rare language or belonging to the top non-commercial site on the Internet. I'd suggest that new banners refer to other very important features like neutrality and freedom. --Elitre 10:13, 3 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Testing seems to indicate that absolutely nothing can touch the Jimmy appeal as far as donation rate and click through rate. We're going to do a serious wave of testing to be sure, but nothing we've done has even come close. 02:51, 4 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]


To my semantics, donate has a different connotation than does support. I think we should be asking people to support Wikipedia opposed to donating to us. Support works as well in each context where we ask them to donate, but conveys all of the additional connotations. This is my opinion and I thank all who give it consideration. Best regards.

Upon further review I see that both terms are used, and in some context to perhaps better effect. My76Strat 02:30, 4 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]
