Proposal to simplify introduction[edit]

Where the lead text states "It acts as a common repository for the various projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, but you do not need to belong to one of those projects to use media hosted here", I propose this changes to "It acts as a common repository for all Wikimedia projects, but you do not need to belong to one of those projects to use media hosted here". This is shorter and simpler with the benefit that rather than making Wikimedia Projects appear directed by the WMF, they have a level of appropriate autonomy. -- (talk) 12:07, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support, also linking to en:Wikimedia project makes much more sense than the current link to [1]. --El Grafo (talk) 14:28, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment "...but you do not need to belong to one of those projects to use media hosted here". It is a bit confusing to me. I prefer the wording of Commons:Project_scope/Summary: "...but they can be used by anyone, anywhere, for any purpose." Jee 14:45, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
