Description Gurch 2007-10-22 18:50:29 UTC
See r26879. I know it hasn't even gone live yet, but I thought I'd get in early here. Joke all you like, but a <marquee> tag is going too far; get rid of it.

Filing this under "MediaWiki" since there doesn't seem to be an option for the CentralNotice extension.

Note that the functionality in question was requested by a member of Wikimedia's staff.
Comment 2 Gurch 2007-10-23 01:45:42 UTC
Well, they can try asking the community what they want next time, then. If you need proof that I'm not the only one who finds this idioti, see [[Talk:Main_Page#stop_the_scrolling]]; I'm sure every other large Wikipedia has a similar discussion going on.

I understand the point of what they're trying to do, but Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not AOL's home page, and this is not 1997. Get rid of the <marquee>, now, please.
Comment 3 Casey Brown 2007-10-23 01:48:55 UTC
No developer is going to overrule the staff no matter what the community says.  However, the marquee has been turned off for the fundraising notice.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2007-10-23 01:56:49 UTC
Already did this.
