Flags of political parties in EthiopiaEdit

Hi, I think we need a coherent decision about these flags. There are more flags here: Category:Flags of political parties in Ethiopia. See also VPC. What do we do about these? Thanks, Yann (talk) 12:01, 29 May 2022 (UTC)

Hi Yann. I think most of them are PD-simple except for those with an emblem. However, as with coats of arms, heraldic depictions are left to the imagination of the original artist as long as they follow the blazon. This one though, appears to be a copyvio where the logo was directly copied into a background image. What do you think? De728631 (talk) 15:56, 29 May 2022 (UTC)

John Fred PiersonEdit

I just noticed that every document lists him as "John Fred Pierson" and not "John Fred. Pierson" and not "John Frederick Pierson" as everyone assumes. His obituary, his tombstone, every entry in the census, and his marriage record all use the same "Fred" and not "Fred.". I had the same problem with a family member "Eddie Schneider", people assumed it was short for "Edward Schneider", and would write that in news articles, and he even addresses it in a published autobiography. Do you have a free account at Familysearch? --RAN (talk) 20:13, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

@Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ): Hi there, I've been quite busy lately, so I'm responding now. Well, I think renaming the category was a good idea then. I don't have an account at Familysearch but I remember when I was looking up that one photo, I was eventually reading something about Pierson that also mentioned how everybody used to call him Fred.

I am messaging you because a contest for a sound logo for Wikimedia is being developed and your opinion as a Wikimedia Commons admin is appreciated. My team would like to know if it is possible for the top finalist sound logos in the contest to have attribution temporarily hidden from public view until all the votes are final? The idea is to let the public judge the sound logo contestants based on the merit of the logo, not the person or people who made it. Again, any feedback is appreciated.

Thank you,
