WMF's Fundraising Banner for 2015 is ridiculously big
Closed, DeclinedPublic


I'm seeing 70% of the screen filled with WMF's --ads-- fund-rising banner, and only 30% available for WP content.
Seriously? "we'll never run ads"? What is this then???

Just to clarify, this large banner only shows up once for each visitor (assuming they don't clear their cookies). Subsequent banners will be significantly smaller.

I don't see how this is "Unbreak Now!" priority and extremely urgent. Hence decreasing priority.

@Pcoombe But readers and anonymous users that only read or edit articles via engines for anonymously surf in the internet, as the TOR network will always be forced to see this big banner. Remember that in countries where the Wikipedia is censored, as in China, TOR network and similars are the only way to access this encyclopedia, and the number of peoples in this situation is considerably high

It looks like me that this is no longer an active bug. Can it be resolved/declined?

I think so (unless this is used as a template for newer banners, with the same size).

Agree with closing this, the banners have changed significantly since 2015.
