Hi there! My name's Swarm and I'm an administrator of the English Wikipedia. If you need to contact me, you should do so over there, as it's where I'm usually active. My work occasionally brings me to Commons, typically for routine deletion requests, but I'll also upload some images from time to time.
We at Wikipedia take the noble spirit of our project seriously by respecting both our high standards and our common sense. While Commons serves a purpose and has good intentions, I feel it falls utterly short of its purported goal of being a free educational tool because it abides a veritable cornucopia of obviously non-educational material. See the gallery below for a demonstration of what I mean. What's more, there's a neverending supply of non-credible "free" material that, despite an army of copyright crusaders, goes unaddressed. As such I don't have much respect for this project or its community. Sorry, but do better, Commons.
Why I don't take this project seriously
The following are apparently accepted as "realistically useful for an educational purpose" despite, you know, not actually being used for anything nor useful by any reasonable stretch of the imagination. Don't worry, more to come.
This is the state of commons: an excessive amount of homemade pornography, selfies, people making funny faces, low quality photographs, and useless miscellaneous bullshit masquerading as educational content. What's worse, is that such images are nominated for deletion and are fervently defended by the community, who respond with baseless, convoluted or bizarre reasonings as to why a pictures of a guy fucking his wife are "highly educational", wikilawyering while ignoring the spirit of the scope of the project, or launching outright accusations of bad faith and personal attacks. In my limited involvement here, this project and its members are a joke.
