Any page watchers interested in co-nominating for GA status?

[edit]

There are a handful of articles I've worked on that are in decent shape but could use some polishing before being nominated for Good article status. I am curious if any page watchers might be interested in finalizing and co-nominating any of the following Wikipedia articles:

If so, let me know here or on the article's talk page! Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 13:47, 10 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

(gasp) I'll copyedit as many as I can, starting with MidCity SmashBurger. TWOrantulaTM (enter the web) 20:30, 11 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@TrademarkedTWOrantula Thanks! If you come across any inaccuracies or content gaps, feel free to share on the talk page. For MidCity in particular, I recall needing to double check the criteria for the "best in the world" claim and decide if this was valid for inclusion. Otherwise, could be a fun article to collaborate on! ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:49, 11 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@TrademarkedTWOrantula: Thanks for your help on MidCity, and congrats on the GA! Looking forward to other collaborations. By the way, I added a note on the Metrovino talk page if you're interested in reviewing that entry. ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:53, 18 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Uploading logo files

[edit]
Extended content

Hi Another Believer. You recently uploaded several logos for restaurants and other establishments that appear to be too simple to be eligible for copyright protection under US copyright law as explained in c:COM:TOO United States. Most of if not all of these files either have already been or should be re-licensed as public domain content. Playing it safe and uploading content as non-free is, for sure, OK, particularly when not sure whether a logo is eligible for copyright protection; the US, however, has a relatively high threshold of originality and pretty much any timeype of text-only logo or combination of simple shapes and colors is going to be considered to simple for copyright protection. Many of your recent files seem to be this type of logo and should eventually be moved to Commons since Commons is perfectly fine in hosting files of logo as along as they meet c:COM:TOO and c:COM:CB#Logos. You can save others some cleanup work, if you just uploaded such files directly to Commons; Commons files are "global" in the sense that they can be easily used by all WMF projects whereas Wikipedia files are "local" and can only be used on Wikipedia. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:30, 11 July 2024 (UTC); edited 21:00, 11 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I'd rather upload here and let others move to Commons appropriately, but thanks. ---Another Believer (Talk) 13:21, 11 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
That's fine. You can upload public domain or otherwise freely licensed file to Wikipedia if you want. If you do so, though, tagging them with {{Copy to Wikimedia Commons}} will make it easier for others to find them. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:00, 11 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

File:Jeju (restaurant) logo.png

[edit]
Extended content
Simple text logos of restaurants located in the US like File:Jeju (restaurant) logo.png are almost certain to be too simple to be eligible for copyright protection under US copyright law per c:COM:TOO United States, and there's no reason to upload them locally to Wikipedia as non-free content. They really should be uploaded to Commons instead. If you're not sure about such a logo, you can always ask for opinions at WP:MCQ or c:COM:VPC.
Commons requires the content it hosts be accpetably freely licensed or within the public domain in the both the US and the country of first publication because its servers are in the US and its content is "global" (i.e. content that can be used by all Wikimedia Foundation projects). So, for restaurants in the US, only US copyright law needs to be considered.
For restaurants located in other countries or international chains incporporated outside of the US, things could be a little trickier to assess because the threshold of originalty each country follows isn't always the same. However, even in such cases, it still might be possible license the file as {{PD-ineligible-USonly}} for use on Wikipedia instead of non-free because Wikipedia content is "local" (i.e. content that can only be used on Wikipedia) which means it only needs to comply with US copyright law.
If you know all of this already, then my apologoies for mistakenly assuming otherwise. You can, however, save some time and effort if you can assess whether the logo is too simple to be non-free yourself, and just upload the file to Commons if it is because that's the best place for it. Commons has no problem hosting logos that a released under an acceptable free license or are too simple to be eligible for copyright protection. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:39, 18 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
