WikiIndex talk:File deletion policy

  • Usually sites have a policy to delete or moderate content that is offending like the undue display of violence, hatred or pornography. I think such a reason should be added.
  • I would omit the remark "This also applies to articles in the main namespace." because in this manner the policy definition about that would be made on the page about files. If there is a valid policy about articles than simply link there in the see-also manner.

Obscenity[edit]

The depiction of nudity is in itself not obscene, otherwise the human being would be obscene it itself. wp:Boxer at Rest --Manorainjan 01:45, 11 August 2015 (PDT)

Right Hence "graphic nudity". Did you read what I wrote? Koavf (talk) 16:55, 14 August 2015 (PDT)

The term "graphic nudity" seems to be no real definition. Someone on the net wrote: ...the MPAA means by some of its cryptic, unhelpful phrases related to naked bodies ... "Graphic nudity" is what is more commonly referred to as "full frontal." These are euphemisms and circumlocutions. But circumlocutions have no place at all in an explanation of a definition or policy. Whereas full frontal is an euphemism as well however well known this term may be, commonly used in Boobpedia. I think that the term "patently offensive" even though very subjective, would be a better part of the definition. Is it meant to arouse? (Anger, fright, lust...). As such anything humorous would be not part of the definition, which should also be mentioned. --Manorainjan 01:09, 15 August 2015 (PDT)

Definitions Your suggestion is to take one phrase with "no real definition" and replace it with another? Koavf (talk) 07:39, 15 August 2015 (PDT)

You can say so ;-) If both no-real-definitions compete, I would suggest that the later would save something like wp:The Birth of Venus and the former not.

Sure If you think this is better copy, then have at it. And I believe that we are agreed that there is definitely a difference between something lascivious and something meant for artistic expression. Sometimes the line can blur but it's usually sufficiently distinct. Koavf (talk) 11:07, 15 August 2015 (PDT)
