@tmletzko I am confused, I thought the initial banner is bigger to draw more attention rather than being related to responsiveness?
I have created a ticket description to give an introduction to the topic and left a link to a working version of an old banner from a web archive.
as you write yourself, right now there is no data on "banner size issues" since that is not a thing on wikipedia.de up until now. However, Matomo has pretty extensive records about all visitors to wikipedia.de for this year.

I also just checked IE11, it is still pretty broken on lower resolutions and still needs some work.
These should be good now but please double-check:

It's on Test now. If needed, ping us for address change tokens for the URL.
@kai.nissen This has been deployed to Test now, please try it out and also make sure that the necessary changes are applied to the email templates.

I am not sure what Gabriel's comment generally related to but I remember we were having a chuckle at this if condition in the code that was made for a specific banner 6 years ago:

I have updated the form, the URL structure now looks like this:

After debugging this locally, it appears that the issue in this specific example comes from the fact that the first donation which started the recurring PayPal donation is missing the utoken in the database. The donation is an old recurring PayPal donation from 2013, so the data is likely messed up for some reason.

@tmletzko See Gabriel's comment above, we should probably just change the label in cat17 and also update the FAQ rather than duplicating the complete FAQ.
It's not part of any banner yet but the class itself can be found here: https://github.com/wmde/fundraising-banners/pull/232

@Tobias_Schumann_WMDE Unfortunately not, we would need some recent logs to really get started with it as most data from December has been purged by now.

@Tobias_Schumann_WMDE Makes sense, thanks.
@kai.nissen I have had a look at the code with Gabriel and it looks fine to us at first glance. We went back to the old Matomo logs from a year ago, but since the data has been purged by now, it's a bit hard to follow what the actual problem is here. Since the relevant data is only tracked when the mbt flag is set in the URL, the last relevant data points are from September 2018 (after that we removed it from all banner links). If you still want us to look into this, could you please elaborate and let's talk about how to proceed here (as no recent sample data exists).
@kai.nissen Can we get some sort of recent example here? I have tried to pick up this ticket but I cannot find any hint in the logs to get started with this, so a concrete case would help.
Is this not implicit by the time of the tracking? I guess I see how it can be more convenient though, so here's the change either way:
