Freedom Porn:deletion

From Freedom Porn
Jump to: navigation, search

Freedom Porn is a collaborative site which tries to gather a wide variety of media without censoring contributors or imposing some sorts of arbitrary limits sexual or otherwise. However, sometimes it may be necessary to remove a file or a page, here is the outline of how it is done.

Steps outlined here are not legal regulations and may be changed by consensus.

What will not be deleted

Files that you don't like

If you just donʼt like something that is made by another contributor, you can obstain from viewing that contributorʼs other contributions, you can contribute something which you with will draw other people from that contributorʼs contributions, you can even start another project and preemptively ban that contributor from contributing. But you wonʼt have other personʼs contributions deleted due to your anti-fetishes.

Unprofessional material

We donʼt make money, we arenʼt professionals. If material is of poor quality, but is free and of sexual nature, it is better than nothing. We have no need to have "quality police", and if you wish to increase the quality of the material on this project, please contribute and show all how to do it right. Itʼs always best to lead by an example rather than by censorship.

Your material that you wish to still be available elsewhere

There is a huge difference between on one hand a person who, through some unexpected consequences of having one's media available online, wants to minimise the distribution potential of these files and on another hand somebody who uses this project to popularise oneself, and then attempts to play the victim and wants to recall a free licence. Therefore if you wish your own files to be deleted from this site, please be prepared to be asked to remove them from other public spaces (or at least show clear attempt to do so). We will attempt to protect somebody from being hurt, but will not allow selfish individuals to manipulate us.

Deleting own media

Please note that per Freedom Porn:copyright you are only allowed to upload media which you place under a free non-revocable licence or place in the public domain. Due to that, even if you have your submission deleted from here, this will in no way stop others from legally keeping, copying, modifying, or distributing modified or unmodified versions that they already have downloaded.

Also, deletion of own media is a priviledge allowed by our community out of our desire to be ethical all the way. Administrators, who volunteer their time to the project will try to help. Please do not approach such deletion as something which will be done speedily or completely. We will, however, do our best to remove the media and links to it from the site if it is requested.

The first thing to do, if you need to have your material deleted is to login with the account associated with the media and post to the talk page of one of the admins a request to delete the material. It will definitely be helpful if you let the person know why you are deleting. The administrator will review your request and will try to help.

Wikimedia mirrored content

Copyright violations

While we can be somewhat sure about the claims of authorship of the media uploaded directly to Freedom Porn, Wikimediaʼs process is much less exact. Coupled with the fact that copyright violations of sexual content there are often deleted on "COM:NOPENIS" grounds, and thus it is possible that a copyright violation will be copied here because of the anti-censorship effort of media preservation.

If you have spotted a copyright violation, please state that on the talk page for the file, providing the evidence or the reason why you believe that somebody has violated copyright laws.

Deleting own Wikimedia uploaded content

You will need to login to the project where the media was copied from, request that the media is deleted there and post a request for it to be removed on Freedom Porn on your own talk page there, sending the link to both requests to the administrators here. Please note that it is essential that you login to the exact account that was used to upload the material, without that it will be pretty much impossible to prove that it is really you.

If you had your upload rev-deleted/anonymised, that makes it impossible to show that the request comes from the same individual who has uploaded the media, please contact the administrator who has reuploaded the media for you and ask one to perform the steps outlined here for you. Be polite and curtious to the administrator, remember that you are asking the person to spend their free time to help you.

It must be stressed that remaining calm and polite will mean that administrators will be more helpful to you than if you act like George Bush and give ultimatums.

Freenet mirroring

Freenet is a censorship resistant network, and since much media is mirrored there, it will be completely impossible to have some content completely disappear. All that can be done is for us to stop linking to it, and consider it outside of our projectʼs control.
