Further to my work with the UKCC (now at correspondence stage) I am following this up with one to the UK Advertising Standards Authority. Their remit covers fundraising banners.

However - bad mistake on my part - they require a screenshot of the banner used for the fundraising. Which I did not get. Does anyone have a copy they could lend me?

Happy to help, unlike Mr Grumpy.

There are various pages about. This is what you can still see from Jimbo.

Appeals are here. with texts linked.

There is a UK appeals page but it is vague. The main issue on the main pages is declaring that they need money to keep Wikipedia up and running.

Had a quick look around for screen shots, there are some in the press but only of the main banner.

Petey-Bee seems destined to become that unkempt man pushing a shopping cart full of yellowing papers consisting of files of complaints he has made with to anyplace that takes complaints and a few press clipping while muttering incomprehensibly. And just what is that amber colored liquid in those jars?

Have you seen this table?
Here are some examples too.
