You clearly have never seen feedback about a Wikimedia fundraiser banner
before, then. :)

In fact, feedback has been extraordinarily good this year -- the only
complaints I'm seeing are that the banner's a bit big, the button's a
bit bright, and the collapsed version isn't small enough -- all easily
fixable matters of style.

The support we're getting is breathtakingly positive, with the first two
full days bringing in about $95,000 *each day* towards our operating budget:

As in previous years, actual contributors are very positive in their
comments:

The banners are simple and clean. The pages are attractive and easy to
read. The process is straightforward. The response to the actual
fundraiser is *overwhelmingly* positive.

Allow time for the system to work; we're all listening, and the banners
will be adjusted and improved over time.
