Nice ideas. May I point out that the quality level of
wikipedia articles is far more effective than the
quality of many pictures we upload on commons?
That is to say, the guys on commons are running a very
important project and they challenge a great effort,
but maybe we should all focus on providing better
quality photos, and not just *more* photos. Many of
them are dark, dull and with ugly subjects: that is a
great minus for some subjects (like food) than for
Plus I totally and entusiastically agree on making
commons searchable like any other image bank.
It's pointless having a treasure if you don't know how
to find it out.
