Here's a sensible idea
that will be rejected by Commons users:
Locker room policy
Last Sunday I went to Sue Gardner's presentation on Women and Wikimedia
. Her story with regard to complaints about users on Commons with user space galleries of sexual photos of girls that would make our women users see Commons as a "male locker room" was a very poor reflection on this project and used some strong words, such as misogyny, though this was countered as not being her personal experience. If we do not have an explicit COM:LOCKERROOM guide, perhaps we can create one and where complaints do arise we can take positive action. My opinion is that people can use their user space pages to help improve Commons, but unless the user is putting up a gallery of their own photos or otherwise using a gallery of sexual or glamour images as part of obvious Commons improvement (in line with COM:USER), such collection that results in any complaint is reasonable to remove immediately by an admin on the grounds of being disruptive. If anyone knows of past cases that Sue is referring to, I would appreciate a link to the related discussions.
If we do take action (or can point to action already taken), I would like Sue to be informed so she can add that story of corrective action to her presentations. --Fæ (talk) 10:25, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
I think there's a certain irony to this which will not be lost on those familiar with Fæ
