Hiding the fundraising notice[edit]

Registered users can hide the site notice by clicking the 'close' button on the right. Note that changing the number in MediaWiki:Sitenotice id (to a number that hasn't been used on that wiki yet) will reset this and make it display again. This should generally be avoided; you might do it when there is an important change to the notice.

Adoption of a language[edit]

The users listed below have adopted a language regarding the site notice. They will watch the master site notice (this page) and make sure that all projects with customized site notices are updated. This requires administrator access on all these projects, so in most cases they will be stewards. The users who list themselves here can be contacted with a request to update their adopted language.

The only page that needs updating is MediaWiki:Sitenotice; MediaWiki:Anonnotice should be blank. Some projects do not exist in every languages; see Special:Sitematrix. Projects using the default notice (by blanking the local sitenotice) are struck out.

When adding yourself below, you can substitute "{{Talk:Fundraising sitenotice 2006 Q4/list|xx}}" (xx being the language code) to get the basic list.

date detection[edit]

Could please you add this function to the example page for today ?
The date detection is easier and cannot be forgotten this way :)

{{#ifeq: {{ #time: dmY}} | 28122006 | today blah matched donation thanks to blah }}

What is it suposed to do? It does not do anything I can see on a normal page or when placed in the site notice (I am of to sleep now; online again by 08:00 UTC --Walter Do you have news? Report it to Wikizine 23:21, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
the if hides the message when the date is not the December 28 of 2006, in UTC time. Try to change the date in preview. This works well on fr. Plyd 10:20, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip - implemented on it.'pedia as well. --Paginazero - Ø 11:48, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
You're welcome :) Plyd 23:13, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
Note that the above is a bit unreliable due to caching. You still have to poke the page again to update the actual site notice after the date change. --brion 01:04, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
