This Wikimedia Foundation logo is used, or was previously used by [[{{{1}}}]]. All copyrights and / or trademarks™ belong to Wikimedia Foundation, Inc..[1]


This WMF logo of is an image / logo template, which is helpful for building a visual WikiIndex. By using it exclusively on a Wikimedia Foundation logo image file, which are subject to copyright and / or trademark™, it will automatically categorise said logo into category: Wikimedia Foundation logo (a sub-category of category: WikiLogo), and also category: Wikimedia Foundation.

Note: for generic non-WMF logos, please continue to use our 'default' logo tagging template: {{WikiLogoOf}}. For other specific logos, please see template:File / image templates table (as shown below). For wiki engine-specific logos, please use: {{Engine logo of}}. For license-specific logos, please use: {{License logo of}}.
Use it by typing
{{WMF logo of|name of Wikimedia Foundation wiki article page}}

If you also need to use it for a category, include a colon after the pipe, as in:

{{WMF logo of|:category: Wikinews}}

Remember, if you are uploading an image file, there you have a space for adding any further notes, such as licensing, copyright, 'fair use' claims, etc. 'Summary:' is the box you use — tag the new logo right there.


For

This image or logo template table shows all of the current (and proposed) templates to be used when uploading new images, or editing existing image files. Crucially, usage of the correct image template not only auto-categorises the image file correctly into its appropriate sub-category, it also highlights any specific copyright noted by the said image. This is vital, because images (and related visual media) are classed as 'art', and licensing for works of art is very different to written textual work. Many wiki logo are specifically protected by copyright.

Usage

Simply select and highlight {{WMF logo of|}}, copy (Ctrl-c on your PC keyboard or ⌘-c on your Mac keyboard), and then paste (Ctrl-v or ⌘-v) it to the relevant file / image sub-category edit box, and save your edit (Ctrl-s or ⌘-s). This will then auto-include it into the appropriate file / image category as shown in the table below.
