I am happy to have WPD host this on the site, wherever our designer gurus find fit, especially as the event will be streamed for all interested parties to see.

At a minimum, we could certainly replace the existing W3C logo in the stewards section (footer of every page) with the special 20th anniversary logo for a few months or a year, whatever they prefer.

However, I suspect the W3 Communications team was hoping for greater prominence than a footer link.

If the community is okay with a prominent logo, my vote for where to put it is in the top nav bar, floated right.  I've attached screenshots of that in widescreen and mobile view, and also the footer option with the coloured logo adding a bit of prominence compared to the gray logos for all the others.

The extra markup and styles I added for the header link are:

<li style="
    float: right;
"><a href="http://www.w3.org/20/" title="W3C 20th Anniversary Site" style="
    background: url(http://www.w3.org/Icons/w3c20/w3c20-logo.svg) no-repeat center;
    background: url(http://www.w3.org/Icons/w3c20/w3c20-logo.svg) no-repeat center,
                       radial-gradient(closest-side, rgba(230,230,230,0.7) 50%, transparent);
    width: 4.5em;
    height: 1.5em;
    display: block;
"></a></li>

That code is inserted as the first element of ul.links in div.container in nav#sitenav in the mockups.  It would of course be preferable to have it last in the list of nav options, but that would require additional CSS finessing to get the mobile layout to look nice.

Hi, folks–

We've had a request from the W3C Communications team to add a small temporary promotional banner to WebPlaform.org.

I explained that our site does not advertisements, which this could be construed as, but said that I'd defer to the Stewards and the community on this particular instance

Here is what they had in mind for the promotional spot:

[[
   [W3C20 logo [1] which links to http://www.w3.org/20/]

   On 29 October 2014, Join Tim Berners-Lee, global strategists,
   business leaders, and developers for an exciting afternoon of
   insights and discussion about the future of the Web,  followed
   by a gala dinner. <a href="http://regonline.com/w3c20">Register
   today</a> for the <a href="http://www.w3.org/20/">W3C 20th
   Anniversary Symposium </a> in Santa Clara, California.
]]

How would you all feel about this? Would you be okay with this above, or on any variation? And if you are okay with it, where would this appear on the site?
