Currently we are having a ci outrage T137265 but as most of the admins are offline we carn't update the dashbored with a notice.
That's why I'm asking could we create a panel at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/dashboard/view/1/ please with a notice panel.
Please give editing rights to ops and releng.
Users who are not subscribed to get emails are creating tasks like T137276 wondering why they carn't test.
Phabricator will be the most likely place for users to find information.
The current problem is some users have not subscribed to getting emails from wikitech-i which is where the email was sent so only users subscribed will have noticed. Where as on the other hand users who are not subscribed doint.
I'm proposing we either update the create task panel with a notice above or create a panel for notices. But as you said most doint view the homepage so create task panel seems a much better place to put the notice.
The text could say
CI outrage please follow T137265
in red please.
