ವಿಕಿಮೀಡಿಯ ಕಾಮನ್ಸ್ ಪಂಡ ದಾದ ?
ವಿಕಿಮೀಡಿಯ ಕಾಮನ್ಸ್ ಪಂಡ media file repository making available public domain and freely-licensed educational media content (images, sound and video clips) to everyone, ಎಕ್ಲ ಭಾಸೆಡ್ ನಿಯಮೊಲ್. It acts as a common repository for the various projects of the ವಿಕಿಮೀಡಿಯ ಪೌಂಡೇಶನ್, but you do not need to belong to one of those projects to use media hosted here. The repository is created and maintained not by paid archivists, but by volunteers. The scope of Commons is set out on the ಯೋಜನೆತ ಸ್ವರೂಪೊ pages.
Wikimedia Commons uses the same wiki-technology as ವಿಕಿಪೀಡಿಯ and everyone can edit it. Unlike media files uploaded to other projects, files uploaded to Wikimedia Commons can be embedded on pages of all Wikimedia projects without the need to separately upload them there.

Unlike traditional media repositories, Wikimedia Commons is free. Everyone is allowed to copy, use and modify any files here freely as long as they follow the terms specified by the author; this often means crediting the source and author(s) appropriately and releasing copies/improvements under the same freedom to others. The license conditions of each individual media file can be found on their description page. The Wikimedia Commons database itself and the texts in it are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. More information on re-use can be found at Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia and Commons:First steps/Reuse.
You can improve Wikimedia Commons most if you contribute what you can do best:
If you're a good photographer, don't hesitate to contribute your valuable images. If you're a good designer, look which diagrams and animations are badly needed.
However you do not need to upload your own files. There is plenty of other very important work to do:

You even do not need to be an artist or good at writing help texts. If you feel at home with creating order from chaos, then we could use your helping hand!
