It's by far our biggest and most popular project, so attracts the
attention. But I do try to make a point of mentioning 200 languages
and other projects.

Journalists' ears in particular prick up at Commons being a free image

Once the search doesn't suck." I think that describes its potential
and problems quite succinctly and accurately ;-)
