Hi Joseph, I think that the banner could be useful to test some problems I see when there is a switch of context. I live near the border Italy-Switzerland and I see several discrepancies when I connect in Italy and in Switzerland. Basically I continue to see banners of Switzerland when I connect

In Brazil 3 dollars is the price of a Starbucks coffee. But Starbuck is the most expensive coffee we have (except of course for the gourmet coffee, but who drinks that? :D ) Other than that, I kinda of like that banner :D _ *​Béria L​. de Rodríguez* *Imagine um mundo onde é dada a qualquer

My 2 cents :D 1. I can't see the banner (not using the link posted or going by CentralNotice) Could someone who can see it take a print please? :D 2. Since is related to GoT, shouldn't the pages for the books, series and author (of the books) be included? Best regards, _ *​Béria L​. de

Hey Pine. So in this instance we sought advice from both Legal and Communications about some of the ideas that we were proposing and from their feedback we took the banner in the more conservative direction to give us clear ground between us and any potential intellectual property issues however

Thanks for the mention Seddon & Anna, tl;dr version: This is a test to see if readers are more likely to donate if the banner is more relevant to what they're reading. Thanks for testing this community-suggested fundraising idea - sign of a new era regardless of the results of the test! As some

Niel, I saw, but the fact that WMF is targeting specific articles about proprietary-IP-heavy subjects with a plea for revenue that is closely aligned to the proprietary IP makes me wonder if there is enough of a nexus that a trademark license is required. WMF is trying to leverage proprietary IP

Hi Seddon, I'm curious. Are the banners designed in a way such that it will be necessary for WMF to obtain trademark licenses from others, such as from the Game of Thrones trademark owners? Pine On May 6, 2016 09:34, "Joseph Seddon" wrote: > Greetings all, > > I wanted
