Picture clean-up?

I just added some pics of Ultimate Emma Frost and noticed there is a bunch of fanart, cosplay and photomanipulated pics.

What's CV's policy on that?

Yes, this seems odd to me too. As sexy and beautiful it looks to see real life people in Emma Frost costumes, as any lingerie shots usually do, it does seem out of place when we are using this as a resource for comic book's and their drawn and inked characters.

Which are the fan art? The pencil sketches?

Fan art and real pics of people in costume is acceptable. They should be in their own gallery though.

Then please ignore my submission suggestion to delete the pictures of the lady wearing Emmma Frost "costume/lingerie".

Generally as long as it's self contained within it's own gallery and isn't used at the default pic, I don't have any problem with it. If it starts leaking into a real gallery I'd have a problem, but this stuff is at the end of the day, something we all want to click on and laugh about.

The only thing that is 'off-limits' is straight up pornography. Other then that, we'd just want to break different type of images into different galleries.

I for one am very interested in real photos of super hero movies. So like having a Spiderman 3 Movie gallery would be great.

Fan art/cosplay pics, that stuff still can be separated into other galleries (for Emma Frost, go figure 9 galleries 3-4 general ones), but there's some other kind of cleaning up I'd like to propose. There's just pointless pictures here. Maybe i'm wrong on this but what do pics like these add?

ETCETERA

Anyone opposed to cutting this gallery down by a 1/3 or so by getting rid of the low quality, irrelevant, pics? Not talking about fanart, just the comic scans.

Exactly, there's a lot of bad pics in many galleries, such as the Penance gallery i was talking about in another thread.

I've been removing pics such as this from different character galleries, but they just keeps getting re-added. What to do?

Also why do people add scans of whole comic pages?

Maybe there should be more stringent guidelines on what pictures are acceptable to upload so people aren't uploading every panel of every comic they own or find in an image search engine?

I've been rejecting whole page scans. It probably goes against copyright stuff too. If a panel was cropped, that'd probably be okay.
