Hi! If you'll note the older logo we had on your Wikipedia article, that logo was stored on Wikipedia, not Commons. Commons is only for free-images, and logos are not free for anyone to use as they are copyrighted. You may go to Wikipedia upload page and upload this logo (click on the "organization" link of the line that says "The logo of an organization, brand, product, public facility, or other item."), using a "Fair Use rationale". You can probably copy and paste the info from the old logo (from this view), and modify any info that needs correcting for this new logo. But, as I said, logos are not appropriate for Commons, and so the image on this project will be deleted. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions. I'm also a regular editor on Wikipedia. You can contact me here on my talk page or on my talk page on Wikipedia. Killiondude (talk) 23:24, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
