Lightweight implementation: if a donor is making multiple gifts (we could define that as a one-time + recurring; or even a new recurring signup?), pluralize keywords on the TY page. I.e.

Thanks @Ejegg! Still one optimization that should happen: it's currently possible to submit the form without a valid email address, or with no data in the email input field at all. That causes a redirect to an error page that doesn't include any link to return to the repermissioning page.

Agree with @CCogdill_WMF that it's not a blocker to have to bounce users back to paypal.

@Anomie, @aaron, @Imarlier and @AndyRussG - save time for banners has plummeted in the last couple weeks and it's amazing. I'm going from an average of 30 seconds - 1 minute to clone or save changes, down to more like 5 seconds. It noticeably improves my ability to complete tasks, as the old delay fostered ineffective multitasking.

Hi @schoenbaechler, I spoke to @phuedx today. A few notes:

  • Right, we can't inject banners to portal via centralnotice; it's not running mediawiki. There isn't an existing a/b testing framework, but @Jdrewniak has set up workarounds in the past, so testing variants might be an option.
  • Right, it's responsive! Phuedx will send over the typical breakpoints for MinervaNeue
  • Phuedx reviewed your design concepts and said they all seem reasonable and possible. It'd be helpful if (when we're ready) you can implement and Jdrewniak can code review.

Hey @AndyRussG, it's happened with other banners too. I don't have a comprehensive list but I'd say ... half a dozen banner preview links in the last few days.

spatton added a comment to T158084: Mediawiki namespace pages, including CentralNotice banners, are slow to save.

Reporting that I'm also seeing noticeably slower save times when editing banners in CN, even if I'm just changing Display to or Display on settings. Changes to those toggles have typically saved within a couple seconds, and I'm now seeing upwards of 20 seconds to save.

Well, @CCogdill_WMF, what do you think? Perhaps I'm underestimating the efficacy of our Oops message.

Thank you @Ejegg, really awesome that you got all the non-recurring. Just about doubled the donation counts in our 10/24 tests. If 1000 affected donations is the threshold that normally triggers a followup from us, 91 recurring signups is well below that. But I'll touch bases with CCogdill.
