The Wikimedia Commons community does not require any disclosure of paid contributions from its contributors.

Context[edit]

The terms of use for Wikimedia require disclosure for paid contributions, but allow project communities to adopt an alternative policy. Wikimedia Commons has done this following the discussion leading to the adoption of this policy.

This means disclosure for paid editing on Commons is not required, but editing without disclosure of payment remains not allowed on any project that hasn't adopted an alternative policy. As of February 2019, only Commons, Wikispecies, Mediawiki and Wikibooks in Russian have adopted an alternative more relaxed policy. The alternative policies on Wikipedia in French and Italian require disclosure of payment.
