Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So, to put up or not put up the banner?

Some questions comes to my mind (in no particular order):

  1. Do we know enough about the case to feel comfortable with the banner?
  2. Do we know enough about the campaign?
  3. Do we support the message of the campaign?
  4. Is this the kind of site that should participate in this kind of campaign?
  5. Is it technically convenient to do?

My answers would be:
  1. yeah
  2. yeah (from this diary)
  3. yeah
  4. yeah
  5. should be, but I am not the one who would be doing it.

So in the republic of ET (however it might be constituted) I vote yes.

I vote yes too, but other frontpagers should vote too (especially the ones who'd decide where to put the banner). (Trouble is, most of us are very short on time at present.)

BTW, did you get my email?

Yes too from me, but I don't know where it would go.

I probably should have added a poll about who thinks it should be put up, but I decided not to risk splitting the community in case there was a strong camp against putting it up...

I don't get the bit about splitting the community. Put up the poll.

You can put up the poll, but it looks like frontpagers already voted for it. I'll try to implement it this afternoon, if I fail I'll ask Colman.

Now done. Also created a separate page linked from the logo. If I should place the logo differently, or there is a different logo better fitting in that place (e.g. flatter), tell me so.

First off, a big, big "Thanks" to you! This means a lot to me since it makes me feel as if I actually did something little to help. All of you should have that feeling too, cause even a small banner can make a difference sometimes.

Also, some banners and ribbons of the campaign can be found here. I don't know if there is something more suitable  because I don't have PhotoShop and some of the files are in PhotoShop format.

Regrettably, those aren't much better suited, either. Why I asked wasn't simply the size it takes up, I can (did) resize myself, but to fit in under the ET logo, the re-sizing makes the text on the ribbon unreadable.

I see no problem with putting up the banner either. Not my call obviously, but my two cents worth.
