@Yann, Christian Ferrer, Ruthven: This file was nominated for deletion on 1 August. For those of us that can't read the French discussion there: Would it be prudent to close the DR either way now? De728631 (talk) 20:41, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
J'ai supprimé le nom de la description. La photo de remplacement a été copiée de Facebook.
I removed the name from the description. The replacement image was copied from Facebook. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:22, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

File:Erect Adolescent Penis.jpgEdit

WTF? We have an image called "erect adolescent penis" and someone created a deletion discussion? What's to discuss about an image that is likely illegal in most places Commons is available? @Elcobbola: You blocked the uploader, why didn't you delete this image? @Herbythyme: You deleted File:Bravo nude 17 year old male model.jpg, why didn't you delete this image too? World's Lamest Critic (talk) 15:16, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

@Sachinthonakkara: @AshFriday: World's Lamest Critic (talk) 15:19, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
The one I deleted was a blatant copyright violation and the only one I saw. I trust that explains my actions to your satisfaction? --Herby talk thyme 15:46, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
File:Erect Adolescent Penis.jpg a) was already nominated for DR; b) is not obviously illegal (adolescence is through age 19, or through age 24--i.e., containing ages 18-19 and 18-24, respectively); c) is not remotely the same image as File:Bravo nude 17 year old male model.jpg; and d) is, I'm happy to say, not of a subject area with which I have experience visually, or otherwise, assessing. Эlcobbola talk 15:57, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
It was described by the uploader as "This is the erect penis of a 17 year old adolescent male with trimmed pubic hair on the abdomen and un trimmed on the testicles". They later changed it to remove the age. Anything called "erect adolescent penis" should probably prompt you to investigate it and the uploader thoroughly enough to know that. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 16:04, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
You seem to be conflate adolescent with, say, pre-pubescent. To think use of the former obligates thorough investigation into whether an uploader has changed a description is not reasonable. I could have, alternatively, simply ignored the account and thus not have subjected myself to malapropos demands of perfection. The tone and approach here hardly incentivize future involvement in such issues, and one indeed wonders whether this has really been thought through. Эlcobbola talk 16:46, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Let's not argue about definitions. If someone uploads an image such as this with any indication that it might be an image of a minor, I think it should be deleted on sight as a precaution. The uploader may be able to successfully argue that it should be restored, if they care enough to try. I'm not asking for perfection, just a little common sense. Do we need another generic dick pic? No, so deleting the iffy ones isn't going to diminish the sum of human knowledge. I don't know why that isn't the standard operating procedure for admins in these cases. And anyone who encounters one should alert an admin. Thank you for deleting it and thanks for blocking the user. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 18:00, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
I've requested comments from the WMF on this image; perhaps they have better resources to assess whether this image needs to be un-existed or not. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 16:11, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
There are many images of human cocks and cunts available on commons, and this type of discussions seem to common (with regard to the ownership of the image). Sachinthonakkara (talk) 23:59, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

User:Steven HallsEdit

The account Steven Halls is in violation of the "well-known names" section of COM:UN. The user uploaded File:Talking moose.png, which appears related to the Talking Moose software by Steven Halls[1], but Steven Halls has confirmed that this is not his account (in OTRS ticket #2019081810004403). – BMacZero (🗩) 05:29, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
