Mmmmh... @MMiller_WMF and I both had no banner on our homepages.

I rechecked using this link:

And then realized that messages are local. Tested with &uselang=ar and it works.

Sorry for the false alarm.

[mediawiki/extensions/GrowthExperiments@master] Fix message fallback for homepage banner

The fix works in betalabs - I added the task to my list of post-deployment checking.

One notice though - a user can dismiss the regular banner and the banner won't be shown again (it seems it's not persistent); a user cannot dismissed the Homepage banner.

Checked in mwf.25 - with uselang=en and with English as the language selected as a user' preference, the banner is displayed.
