Request for sitenotice[edit]

Hello, I am requesting a sitenotice for POTY 2012 Round 2 (Final Round) to run instead of a CentralNotice on this wiki. Picture of the Year is a widely recognized event and we would like to encourage Commons editors to participate in celebrating Wikimedia's best pictures. The banner would remain visible to logged in editors from Feb 7 2012 to Feb 14 2013. You can view the banner here - the banner would appear in English only. A POTY member will fulfill this request at the beginning of Round 2. Mono for the POTY 2012 committee at 21:07, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

I can't assess whether it is true what Multichill said while removing because I've blocked all banners. Perhaps someone else could comment here. -- Rillke(q?) 11:55, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
The CN banners are still up - they can go down for Commons when the sitenotice goes up. We're looking for the standard banner that's below. Mono 16:15, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
I think we should switch simultaneously. Why do we need a local site notice? Let's talk in IRC. Best -- Rillke(q?) 20:58, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Request for sitenotice[edit]

{{Edit request}}

Please can an admin add a Site Notice concerning the RFC on amending Licence Policy to include "Appropriately licensed" as a condition. As this proposal restricts licence choice for new uploads, it concerns all users (though in practice, the licence choices being restricted are not widely used any more). There is already a Centralized discussion notice, and at the Village Pump/Proposals page. But I feel this should be widely advertised to allow full participation. If this is not felt appropriate, then perhaps a Watchlist notice? Something like:

Commons is discussing a proposed change to its licence policy to include the concept of "appropriately licensed". This will affect the licence options for new uploads. Please participate in the Request for Comment.

I chose a watchlist message because this gives the user the option to choose which type of message they want to receive. -- Rillke(q?) 21:22, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Colin (talk) 21:24, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Vulnerability in the OpenSSL software[edit]

The current sitenotice [1] about a vulnerability in the OpenSSL software is discussed at Commons:Village pump#Users are being forced to log out. PrimeHunter (talk) 18:58, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

no right to see the source?[edit]

I wanted to see view source of the sitenotice but the software denies this and shows me the following error:

Unable to proceed

That's just a stupid software bug. Notice is currently empty. -- Rillke(q?) 13:15, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
