Regarding File:Nail & Gear.svg

The language is a bit ambiguous here, but on Hello Internet #57, C. G. P Grey said that he was 'giving the flag to the public domain.'

Please note that I was not the user that aded the CC0 tag to the page.

Thank you for that information. If that's the case, then I believe Grey would be best to indicates that somewhere in writing since verbal permissions do not seem to be usually accepted. He can either do this by sending a declaration of consent to OTRS as explained in COM:OTRS#Declaration of consent for all enquiries or by adding an appropriate license to the official page where the logo is displayed per COM:OTRS#When contacting OTRS is unnecessary. He needs to understand, however, that once he release the logo under a free license that he cannot take it back.
Finally, sorry if there was a mixup over the nontification template added to your user talk page; the template is typically added to the uploader since they are assumed to have been the person to have added the license. For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure this would not be considered to be {{PD-textlogo}} per c:COM:TOO#United Kingdom and COM:TOO#Lower threshold in United Kingdom etc.. The UK has a pretty low TOO for copyrighted logos, much lower than that of the US, so I think this would be deleted based upon that if this was discussed at COM:DR or tagged with Template:Logo. You can if you like move the file to COM:DR if you like to have more feedback from other Commons editors. -- Marchjuly (talk) 02:36, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
