TUSC token 3f5c9d2cdd0d72f5da7d472132ff94e6[edit]

I am now proud owner of a TUSC account! I guess third try is the charm. I'll leave this up for a while, but if it won't cause me problems, I'll move it to my user page. — trlkly 05:05, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for everything[edit]

Hi Trlkly. I just saw your comments about the essay in the Signpost and I had to come over and thank you. I did a quick look through your talk page archives and have to apologize, on behalf of Wikipedia, for the many negative things you've experienced. It's truly sad that such a good person as yourself has had to deal with some of our more aggressive users.

I also had a look at your user page and I have to agree with speaking the truth about the situation here at Wikipedia. Things have gone down hill in the last several years and we need to start dealing with the fact that users are leaving as soon as they walk in the door. It's sad really.

Anyhoo, on to happier things. I wanted to thank you for your comments on the Signpost essay. I felt they were insightful and to the point. I can't tell you how much I appreciate coming across a fellow Wikipedia that's willing to speak out about these issues. It's really great.

I also need to thank you for your great contributions. It is volunteers like us that help build this wonderful resource for the world and so your help is very much appreciated. So in that regard I have to give you a barnstar.

In grateful appreciation of your many years of service, your thoughtful comments and for hanging in there, I hereby award Trlkly the Special Barnstar. The fact that you are still contributing and have a continued interest in improving this project for others, means you are one of the good ones. You truly know what it means to be a Wikipedian and I thank you kindly. Having you here means a great deal to me and others, so I need to express my appreciation for your help. Thank you very much. - Hydroxonium (TCV) 04:44, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

If there is anything I can do to make your Wikipedia experience better, please let me know. I am more than willing to help such a fine user as yourself. Thank you for everything. Best regards. - Hydroxonium (TCV) 04:44, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

[edit]

This logo might very well be to old for any copyright protection. Even if not, I don't think it's more detailed than https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Best_Western_logo.svg#mw-jump-to-license which is also unprotected. --2003:CD:7BC0:D800:E546:162A:A75A:FC3D (talk) 08:36, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

The age is not why that logo is a free image. It's just text, with some simple shapes to make a W. It's too simple to copyright. That's what {{PD-textlogo}} is about. Age is irrelevant.
The fancy drawing of the scale and book in the NAACP logo is too complicated to work under that. And the NAACP.org website specifically claims copyright on everything. So we're stuck with using {{non-free logo}}
The image was going to be replaced anyways, anyways, as it was a JPEG with a white background. We prefer PNGs with a transparent background for stuff like that. Only photos use JPEGs. See WP:IUP#FORMAT for more information.
