Database v collection

{{edit request}} Mainpage currently states, "a database of 34,813,311 freely usable media files to which anyone can contribute". The word "database" is too narrow; it could mean a card catalog of 34 M media files. Commons is really a collection of media files; libraries talk about their collection or their holdings; they don't use the word database. So change the phrase to "a collection of ...".

I agree. "Collection" is a much better, non-technical word. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 14:40, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Media of the Day not in mobile version

I was viewing the mobile version, and I don't see "Media of the Day" displayed. Are there reasons? --George Ho (talk) 04:11, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
