I have always assumed that there were two sides to this coin, i.e, one thing is the group of logos that are of an "Historical" nature. The other, and of a totally different nature, is the group of logos that are trully "Unidentified".
So, my interpretation has always been the following:
* To the first group, the "Historical" one, belong logos that are well identified, but that belong to shipping companies that for one reason or another (bankruptcy, merger, etc.) are no longer active. They belong to this category, and there is no reason for them to be moved to any another category.
* To the second group, the "Unidentified" one, belong all logos that the original photographer had difficulty in assigning to a particular shipping company, and that may require third party review to be finally assigned to the correct logo owner company. Once identified, those logos should either remain in this category, if they are of the "Historical" nature, or be moved to the main logo category, if their owner company has been positively identified as a still active shipping company.
Am I wrong?
But that leads me to another doubt...
My doubt has always been about the logos uploaded to the main logo category at a time when their logo owner company was an ongoing concern, and that over time have left the maritime business... and their logos are still there!... When that happens, should the logos in the main category be moved to the "Historical" category, because they have indeed by now become historical in nature?
Clarifications will be very welcome, please!
