Wikia is deleting "obscene" pictures on its wikis, according to their last policy change from 6 months ago. And by obscene images they mean almost anything except this one. Did they alredy started erasing all memory of niples around uncyclopedia?--Rataube (talk) 21:44, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Hopefully our content warning means we can keep our nipples. -- The Zombiebaron 22:21, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Wikia should call themselves "pansia". User:Mrthejazz/sig 00:07, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
Zombie, you would think. But the warning is not helping uncyclopedias in other languages from which Sannse alredy started deleting pictures and baning admins for restoring them. Including some really harmless images.--Rataube (talk) 05:54, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
Then why am I still naked? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:18, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
Probably because its more comfortable to edit in the nude than to bother with clothes when nobody's around and the blinds are down. Just don't let anybody hijack your webcam.

Also, if these rumors are true, we could always start uploading our "favorite pictures" to the mirror site, which does not have any such restrictive policy. Pictures of the object, should be appropriate on the article about the object.-- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 08:34, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

God, they'd better not remove {{Boner}}. If they do, I say we should move to ShoutWiki or something. I'm in good terms with the admins there. ~[ths] UotM My Farticles. Qaplá'!

I wasn't aware there was anything obscene here. Are those Uncyclopedia's 'super glued locked pages' that only a few have access to? --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 19:48, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
There are some images that are considered NSFW that are borderline, plus if you browse the images category, one can actually find images of exposed nipples under [[Category:Nipples]]. I don't know if they are used or not, but some might consider those obscene. I understand topless beaches may be common in Europe, but in the United States, generally this would be considered soft-core porn. Then, there is also the infamous Jesus' foreskin article with the neon penis, which is borderline. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 04:19, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
According to wikia staff this image is borderline--Rataube (talk) 10:32, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
That image is completely legit. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 10:40, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
Now I'm finally gonna say, in all seriousness, that WIKIA CAN GO TO HELL! Earlier I thought it was honest mistakes and stuff, but this is blatant asshattery. --Lord Scofield Stark 15:08, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Quick Drive-by comment from Chinatown

Once again Uncyclopedia's unique space on the Internet is caught between a rock and a hard place. The rock being Wikia which is a company that has never really connected to this community and the hard place consisting of the shift in culture and attitudes. Uncyclopedia is a fundamentally western creation and the shifting currents of puritanical nostalgia and the lack of 'real' laughs today affect this site drastically. Certainly the 2005 era of Paris Hilton lols seems very old now and while Uncyc still churns out some great stuff I fear that navigating through this fog will be very challenging for such a broad church as Uncyclopedia is.--Sycamore (Talk) 13:16, October 11, 2012 (UTC)
