We did some quick checking and realized that most people who are logged in and intend to give have already given.  The banners will stay off for a while, and we'll most likely not turn them on until after the first of the year for a final wrap-up push.

So will they come back after New Year's Day?

That said, although we at WiKansai are no chapter, we are organizing a
WikiX event coming very soon - being held on January 22, and aiming to
publicize it using CentralNotice. I don't know what comes when two
kinds of banners are put through CN,
but anyway arrangement would be necessary, although my latest mail
asking for such arrangement with Foundation hasn't been replied yet.
