For the winter wikifest we had a colourful notice in the sitenotice. But, now we use a different format, so the policy may be different. So, I'm asking that we add the wikifest notice to the sitenotice.

Here is what it would look like:

SiteNotice last updated on 28 November 2015
  • The names of the emoticons have been changed, so they are easier to use. For more information, click here.
The 2009 Autumn Wikifest is over. We hope you all had fun!

Oppose - I have never been a big fan of the sitenotice, so try and see it from my point of view. Why have a big colorful box with a countdown timer when we have a plain text message with a link as it is now? Put the big colorful box on the page people who are interested in the wikifest for them to see after they click through the plain text message. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 21:50, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - I really don't mind, but I have to say it's rather... unfitting there. I think it'd be better on the wikifest page itself.  Tien  01:16, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Neutral - If I were to like it, it would be separated from the SiteNotice and be dismissable on its own. ShinyUnown T | C | E 01:19, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Alternate Solution

Another idea - Since so far no one seems to support it, how about taking the main function of it(the countdown) and including it in the wikifest text in the sitenotice.

Support - This one definitely looks better than the orange-coloured thing. Miasmic Blitz icon.png Hapi007 Talk! Sign! . 13:22, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per all. Looks great.  Tien  15:47, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Closed - This is a temporary notice, so I don't think we need a large amount of contributors to get a valid consensus for something that will remain for only a few days. I'm going to go ahead and add this in, that way our users can see it sooner.
