[Wikimedia-l] Why you're not seeing banners

We've heard from a few people wondering why they're no longer seeing
fundraising banners on Wikipedia. An announcement about this was buried in
another thread, so I'll repeat it here.

We're now showing banners only to people (more accurately: browsers) who
have never seen them before. If you really want to see a banner, clear your
Wikimedia cookies and you'll be able to see what's running.

If you're seeing banners more than once on the same computer and browser,
please let us know so that we can figure out why that's happening.

>From December 26 to Dec 31 we'll begin showing banners again to everyone
for a final push to the year end goal.
