Is File:ATA.png the current or an old logo of the association? If it's old, then there are two points:

  1. I have a copy of the logo sourced from the ATA website, in reduced resolution, that I can upload here. (I salvaged it off Commons, where's it's incorrectly licensed as PD-self; the logo appears to be copyrighted.)
  2. Should the logo be retained as a historic logo? If it's removed from the article, it will also need to be removed from Wikipedia.

I'm awaiting discussion before I go ahead, especially with removing the old logo. —C.Fred (talk) 18:52, 1 March 2010 (UTC)


C. Fred:

I apologize if this isn't the way to respond. Obviously, I've never edited in the Wiki system and it's taking some getting used to. That being said, I saw your notes about the logo and have some answers. Yes, the logo is copyrighted. I uploaded as PD-Self because that seemed to be the path of least resistance to get the image onto the page. Knowing I wasn't going to get sued by the ATA for copyright infringement, I went ahead and dealt with the upload that way. Secondly, the logo should be low-res as is. I put it through PhotoShop and saved it out at 72 DPI. The old logo has been replaced with the new one and I see no reason for it to stay on the page, once the page is updated. I sent your response to the text portion of the ATA page appropriate staff and I'm awaiting their decision before moving forward with any edits/changes to the page.

 Done I've uploaded the (new) logo to Wikipedia, placed it into the article, and tagged the old logo for deletion. Where did I get my copy of the logo from? I salvaged the one you from Commons. —C.Fred (talk) 22:03, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Jan 2016 edits[edit]

I noticed the edits of @Srutlan: today on the page edit lists and I've temporarily reverted them because the excessive number of links to outside pages (including the main bold-lede) has set off a number of potential NPOV and copyvio detectors. It's possible that they're innocent, but I notice a lot of cut-paste copyvios from the ATA website in the past. I'm pinging @C.Fred: who has resolved these situations a number of times before. Thanks. -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 15:59, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

@Mscuthbert and C.Fred: I am an employee of the ATA. The changes and outbound links are intentional to drive people to our website and our official Facebook page. How do I revert the changes back to my original submission? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Srutlan (talkcontribs) 16:33, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
I'm going to just pop in here with some relevant links for you @Srutlan: Please note that Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising, promotion, or driving traffic to a website. Additionally, since you are an employee of the ATA you should review Wikipedia's policies on conflicts of interest and paid contribution disclosure. RA0808 talkcontribs 16:41, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
@RA0808: Thank you for those resources! I apologize for any confusion and frustration. The information contained within the previous entry was not accurate and/or no longer relevant. I have removed the majority of the outbound links and cited sources when appropriate." — Preceding unsigned comment added by Srutlan (talkcontribs) 17:17, 26 January 2016‎ (UTC)
