Set banners for Community Insights
Open, LowPublic

Description

Banners are needed to invite people to take the Community Insights survey.

Some tips:

  • We can have a translated message. It takes a couple of days to get the translations done.
  • We can't filter the banners for a particular type of users (like only devs, or only GLAM enthusiasts), only the text will make a difference.
  • The entire banner is a link. In text links are not possible.
  • It is better to have an icon. By default, it is the Wikimedia no-text black logo, that perfectly suits our case.

The format for banners have to follow those examples:

Needed banners
  • one banner, on mediawiki.org
Schedule
  • display it until October 31

@Trizek-WMF sorry if I'm not readying this task right-- what specifically are you looking for input on?

I need to know which banners you wish to display on wikis, and with which schedule. I've scheduled a meeting with you to discuss about it.

Doesn't the main task explain it's only MediaWiki.org? The other one would be Wikitech, but that's just a sitenotice that Bryan Davis will put up. @Johan, did you already send him the text to add there?

Since that the original tasks description says

Who is your target audience (be specific)?
All audiences of the 2019 Community Insights survey (Contributors, Developers, and Movement Organizers & Affiliates).

I assumed that banners were overall needed. But reading T211838#5452621, I new see the point I missed.

Setting up a banner only on Mediawiki.org is doable. the current task description already has a headline, a description and a link to the banner. I need a confirmation about these. Also, when to start it is stated, but when to stop it is not.

When I would have those elements, setting-up the banner will be doable within a few hours.

Anyway, the meeting with @Rmaung would be a good thing for every ongoing tasks about CI. Just in case, @Johan, please ping me if you need/want to join it.

Hadn't planned for meetings that late on the Wednesday so I think I might be passing through some tunnels south of Stockholm around that time, but I'll join you if the connection allows me to.

@Trizek-WMF The banner wording in the task description looks great. The survey is live through October 31, so that would be a good end date.

Trizek-WMF lowered the priority of this task from High to Low.Mon, Sep 16, 3:44 PM

Banner created.

It will be displayed to users on mediawiki.org starting tomorrow and ending on October 31.

It will not be displayed all the time, though: we prefer to avoid banner fatigue and mix them with other banners. If you need to have more people responding, we can push it a bit for a few days. Please ping me here or by chat if it is needed.

I'm lowering the priority of the task to reflect the work done, but I suggest that we don't close it until the campaign ends.

@Trizek-WMF could you please add a close button to the banner? I've just gotten an indirect report that people are complaining about the button's absence.

@bd808 added it to Wikitech too.

First thing done this morning.

It is totally my fault: I copied a banner template that had no button.

@Rmaung, are you satisfied with the number of responses received from volunteer developers?

Rmaung added a comment.Thu, Oct 3, 6:23 PM

@Trizek-WMF, we are around 40% of our response goal, so it would be great to keep recruiting participants!

I've increased the number of impressions developers will get (5 instead of 2). However, the best approach remains to direct message people.
