Wikivoyage logo proposal 2013Edit
Hello, Mystère Martin. Unfortunately, the agency the Wikimedia Foundation legal team hired to explore the logos submitted to the 2013 logo process for legal issues has identified the logo File:Wikivoyage logo idea - Geographical zones with arrow 2.svg as being too similar to an existing mark for us to be able to use it for the Wikivoyage logo. Nevertheless, I want to thank you for submitting your logo design to the 2013 selection process. Obviously, the community was quite taken with it and voted accordingly. After instant runoff adjustment, it received the largest number of overall votes and came in second with weighting from the Wikivoyage community. We really appreciate your submitting your logo and do apologize for the complication, but after the issues with the first logo we would like to make sure that the new logo does not encounter similar barriers. :(
As you are one of the finalists, though, we would really like to offer you a set of Wikimedia project lapel pins, if you would like to claim them. We do not currently have a merchandising manager, but if you would like to submit your mailing address to liaison wikimedia.org within five weeks of today, I would love to get those sent you to you as soon as possible.
- Hi, Martin. I haven't received your email yet. Can you please be sure that you sent it to liaison wikimedia.org? You can also send it to mdennis wikimedia.org. :) --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 12:23, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
