Final assets due Aug 25 Target go live date Sept 1
Sept 1 is US holiday, so go live should be Sept 2.
Just a heads up: the site launch is likely to be delayed due to logistical issues. We'll keep you posted.
Hey Hannah- Any updates on a go live date? Thx, Jen
The latest thinking is the 3rd or 4th week of September, but no set date right now.
Remind me what the new live date is for a gear store?
We've shared Mozilla Gear with staff and have received some feedback, but we're waiting for a bit more before we go live. Could be later this week or early next week.
[HEADLINE] Official Mozilla gear is here [COPY] Merch with a mission. Products with a purpose. Goods that do good. [CTA] Get your Mozilla gear »
Hi Alex, Flod, and Pascal- Did we localize the Gear Store promo for the original homepage launch in October? Alex - did we have a graphic from Ty? If not, we are looking to push this out for en-us in the next week. I'll ask Hannah to tell us which locales we should localize for. Thx, Jen
> Did we localize the Gear Store promo for the original homepage launch in > October? Yes. At first I didn't realize it was en-US only, when I did I decided to keep the strings in since we already had some localizations. Note that: * we have "Merch with a mission. <br>Products with a purpose. <br>Goods that do good.", so we need to reuse that and eventually strip tags for Tabzilla. * we'll need to copy strings over to tabzilla.lang if you want to create a promo 46 locales covered https://l10n.mozilla-community.org/~pascalc/langchecker/?locale=all&website=0&file=mozorg/home/index.lang
(In reply to Jennifer Bertsch [:jbertsch] from comment #8) > Alex - did we have a graphic from Ty? I just checked and I still have the gear-store promo icons on my hard-disk, although I've lost the exact text we used for the hover-reveal state. Flod do you still have that string handy too?
Nevermind, I found them in Flod's link :) "Official Mozilla gear is here" "Merch with a mission. <br>Products with a purpose. <br>Goods that do good." "Get your Mozilla gear"
So it looks like we're all set for the home page promo - do we have a specific background color we would like to use? We also need some kind of visual design for the Tabzilla promo?
Just to confirm - Mozilla Gear is not yet localised, so this will be en-US only.

Hey Craig- Do you think we could get this out on Tuesday, given everything else? Hey Hannah-Could you please give us a url? Thanks both of you!!!!!
Here's the URL: https://gear.mozilla.org/?ref=OMG_launch&utm_campaign=OMG_launch&utm_source=gear.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=mozillaorg_largeblock Note that the site is still password protected, but that will be turned off before 10am PST Nov 25 when we plan to launch our channel promotions. Also we're trying to make the store even cooler by calling it "OMG" -- short form of "Official Mozilla Gear." :)
(In reply to Jennifer Bertsch [:jbertsch] from comment #15) > Hey Craig- Do you think we could get this out on Tuesday, given everything > else? For the home page, certainly. Do we have copy and design for Tabzilla yet, or will we do home page only for next week? Also, just to confirm, which position on the home page? I'm guessing in place of Webmaker? And we'll replace the small Appmaker promo with the small Webmaker promo?
Great, Craig. Yes: Gear store replaces Webmaker in the big promo and Webmaker replaces Appmaker in the small promo (for en-US only because Gear store isn't localized). Do you think you could use the existing copy and icon and make something super simple for Tabzilla? Please tell me if you don't have bandwidth for that. I'm fine leaving Fx OS there too.

I thought Gear was going in the Communities slot. Am I remembering that wrong?
(In reply to Matej Novak [:matej] from comment #19) > I thought Gear was going in the Communities slot. Am I remembering that > wrong? I think this is my fault. Last week I put the Donate promo in the spot previously held by SUMO, but I think Donate should have replaced Webmaker (moving Webmaker to the small spot currently held by Appmaker) and left SUMO where it was. But we can correct that now by moving Donate to the big slot currently held by Webmaker and putting Gear in the newly vacated spot currently held by Donate. One more question, and probably one for Ty (cc'd): what color should the new Gear promo be? I can't remember what color it was when it was originally designed but the mix of other promos has completely changed since then anyway so we probably just need to pick a new color that will play nicely with the others.
PR is in code review: https://github.com/mozilla/bedrock/pull/2533 Hannah, can you tell us what time on Tuesday the gear store will be live?
10am PST. The password protection on the site will be turned off within the hour prior.
