! -"thus all information seen here is without any implied warranty of fitness for any purpose or use whatsoever." Oh my, this page needs work. -Edbrown05 10:07, 6 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]

What would be a better wording? whym (talk) 08:52, 29 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Awkward wording?

"Wikimedia Commons is an online open-content media repository, that is, a voluntary association of individuals and groups who are developing a common resource different media." ... common resource different media seems awkward to me. Since this is a legal disclaimer I'm loathe to willy nilly edit it but I think it needs an "of" at the least. Perhaps (with italicised new words):

Wikimedia Commons is an online open-content media repository, that is, a voluntary association of individuals and groups who are developing a common resource to house different media."  ?? ++Lar: t/c 13:46, 25 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Lar, You are right and your wording is better. Why not change it? --BozMo (talk) 10:44, 2 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]
✓ Done. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 18:29, 4 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Change of designated agent address July 2021

Greetings from the WMF legal department. May I have assistance updating our designated agent addresses to:

CT Corporation System 330 N Brand Blvd. Glendale, CA 91203-2336

Many thanks! RStallman (WMF) (talk) 22:54, 26 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

✓ Done @RStallman (WMF): Is it OK now? Yann (talk) 15:12, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Please change

{{TNT|Commons policies and guidelines}}


{{Commons policies and guidelines}}

as {{TNT}} is no longer necessary (the Translate extension can automatically transclude the appropriate translation since March), now it just adds an unnecessary level of complexity. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:08, 27 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

✓ Done Yann (talk) 14:38, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Yann: Thanks! Can you do the above request as well? Actually that’s much more important and urgent than this technical cleanup. (It came from a WMF user name, so it’s certainly not a troll.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 15:05, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Tacsipacsi: ✓ Done I am quite out of touch with current WMF events, so I wondered if it is still valid. Are the name, phone and fax numbers still the same? Regards, Yann (talk) 15:10, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Yann: Neither am I really up-to-date, but figured that if it has changed once more in the meantime, someone from WMF would’ve alerted us. I found foundation:DMCA takedowns, which contains the same name, phone and fax as our page, so I assume they haven’t changed. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 15:20, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

"no guarantee of validity"

This line is difficult to translate because what is "valid" is unclear. (This page is made translatable.) Does that mean information found on Wikimedia Commons, like statements written in file descriptions, categories assigned, might be incorrect? If so, something like "no guarantee of validity of content" might be more clearer. whym (talk) 03:58, 19 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

update Designated Agent name

Could Amanda Keton's name be replaced with Stephen LaPorte (the Wikimedia Foundation's current General Counsel). Many thanks RStallman (WMF) (talk) 18:46, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
