I was looking around and found some interesting things. For example: Wikipedia:File_talk:Lolicon_example.jpg you can see the talk for an image was deleted in Sept07! You can also see where it used to be at Wikipedia:File:Lolicon_example.jpg that there is a page linking to it, that being Wikipedia:Talk:Lolicon/Archive_6#I_might_have_found_an_artist specifically from April 2006. Furthermore, the image is talked about as late as 2008.
My memory is slightly refreshed because I remember this conversation back when I could edit, I do believe it was a photograph of a girl in a swimsuit with a popsicle? I think Kasuga's contribution is totally great and all but I don't see why we couldn't have both. I don't agree with statements such as 'no lolicon would find that attractive', we should not propose to be mind readers. That would be cognitively distorted. I sort of had to lol at Zscout's comment of "those wishing to ask Kasuga for a drawing, he won't do it" though =) Wikipe-tan-kun ftw.
- Lolicon example.jpg has not been deleted because it shows e.g. inappropriate content but rather because there was no clear evidence that the author agreed that the image was released under a free licence. Maybe the author agreed to it, but just a small note on the image's description page which says "the author is fine with the upload under <licence>" is not enough. An OTRS ticket is usually needed to have the proof that the author is fine with the upload to Wikimedia Commons. Because of the unproven licence status it got tagged as file with missing permissing and got deleted on 2009-05-23. --D-Kuru (talk) 19:47, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
- Ah I see, that makes sense. Verifying authorship is certainly pretty tricky, like in the very least you'd have to link to a place where they can prove they possessed the image prior to it being uploaded (like on a DeviantArt or something) and even then, you always wonder if someone might present proof at a later date that they created it prior. That new google image matching technology could be a huge asset in things like this, though not an absolute solution as we can't check offline data. Ty (talk) 11:43, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
