Dear friends of free knowledge,

Wikimedia Commons is in crisis. There are numerous concerns and
complaints about our central media platform, for many years.

Therefore, this open letter asks the Wikimedia Foundation to Think
big! about the future of Wikimedia Commons.

In late August 2022, we at the Commons Photographers User Group talked
about Wikimedia Commons. The result of these and other talks is this
open letter.

We invite everyone to sign this open letter to show how important
Wikimedia Commons is to you. You may be a regular Commons contributor,
a Wikipedian, an editor of Wiktionary or Wikivoyage, or maybe you
represent an affiliation. We also strongly invite other people who are
involved with Commons directly or indirectly, maybe in the context of

Please inform others about this open letter.

Kind regards,
Ziko van Dijk
