This has already been hashed out technically, and is doable. The only
issue is getting people to standardize on a banner size, which I've
tried for the past few months to get people to agree on, but with no
luck. In order for this to work we need a benevolent dictator (Zach?,
Erik?) to state that all banners (including chapter banners) need to be
a certain height during the fundraiser. As it's not a high priority
issue currently, I'm not sure if there's any likelihood of that actually
If people want to discuss further, the bug is at:

A Wikipedia page loads. The last thing to load is
the banner. This
pushes the page content down. If you've clicked on a link near the top
of the page, the banner grabs it instead.
This happened last year and it was reported then (and it was
incredibly annoying then too). It also fouls up stats on banner
effectiveness, as banners are clicked on without intention to do so.
Please load the page with a space for the banner to avoid this effect.
This should be doable provided that all banners have the same
dimensions. Which banner will be selected (if one is selected at all)
is determined by JS and is not known by PHP (and can't be known by PHP
due to Squid caching).
