It's not just the phrases "Hi, I edit here too as X", but also using "Welcome to Wikipedia" can be patronizing to somone who's been here for a while.

It's hosted locally on the English Wikipedia and it's not on Commons, so I'm unsure how Commons would be affecting this. My best guess is that the API is confused by there being both a non-free licensing tag on the page and a CC tag on the page; it should give priority to the non-free tag, but it's currently giving priority to the CC tag.

As the WMF-Legal project tag was added to this task, some general information to avoid wrong expectations:
Please note that public tasks in Wikimedia Phabricator are in general not a place where to expect feedback from the Legal Team of the Wikimedia Foundation due to the scope of the team and/or nature of legal topics. See the project tag description.
Please see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Legal for when and how to contact the Legal Team. Thanks!

Is this something that we would need a WMF grant for, should OUP not want to provide free access anymore?

It's my understanding that much of Latin Uyghur doesn't actually have a capitalization convention; the local [[قېلىپ:Welcome]] does not use any capitalizations for example. There are also not a terribly long number of articles on UgWiki, so manually sorting and classifying the article based upon alphabet is not going to be a terribly hard task (especially if we have a script that can find unique characters to each set, it should not be too too hard to make a list).

My reading of consensus is that of the closing summary, that:
There is consensus to keep the old icon
and, while it can be improved,,
the community would prefer approving a new icon, or having input on the design, before implementation
If you disagree with the reading of consensus from the closer, that's fine, but that's also something to discuss with the closer or to challenge at AN. That isn't something to completely ignore, given that it was closed less than five days ago. Frankly, the EnWiki community hasn't approved the new logo, so I'm a bit floored at the idea that we would ignore such a recent consensus that was achieved on-wiki.

A discussion on the English Wikipedia's village pump closed as there being consensus against implementing the new external links icon on EnWiki. In light of this, I do not think it's appropriate to deploy this change to the English Wikipedia.
