Frag Count +1

So, there’s this Russian wiki about the wikisphere, and it has a vote for featured picture to be put on the front page. One guy posted a fetishized picture (NSFW), titling it “the abstract-collective image of the Russian Wikipedia female administrator”.

The conversation went like this:

Uploader: For. What kind of sane person would be against?
Me: Against. Too oversexualized for the main page.
Uploader: What kind of criteria is that? A picture of a woman on the front page, and not just on the front page, must not be vulgar and provocative. As long as these criteria are met, it cannot be “too oversexualized”. The more, the better. The only people this picture can scare away are homos.
Me: It is vulgar, and offensive at that. No comment on your definition of “a sane person”.
Uploader: Excuse me, are you a woman by any chance? To be honest, I didn’t think about whether the image would be liked by the fair sex.

I only wish I could reply “not helping your cause”, but soon he was permabanned by an administrator for an unrelated reason, that is, waging a revert war on a different page. Good night, sweet prince.

  1. Mortal Kombat

    I believe that’s concept art for the Mortal Kombat series of videogames. My memory was wrong, and it isn’t the character Mileena – this one, with the metal fans is called Kitana. Specifically it’s an image from 2005’s Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks.

    Why do you care? Because it’s a copyrighted image, owned by WB Games. So shouldn’t be uploaded to random wikis.
