I would like to add a photo of the band to the article, put I can't find one in the public domain. What's the policy on 'fair use' of copyrighted images? (or should I just do a CP and use one anyway?) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 13:11, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Cheers Sue, I found that one on CC too, but it's a bit shit. (and Caroline's head is hidden by a cymbal!) There are some audience-taken photos on flickr, do you think they would be usable (in terms of copyright)? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 13:47, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Flickr images tend to be Creative Commons in one form or another - it depends. Look under 'Additional Information' on the right column of the picture's Flickr page. --Worm(t | c) 14:24, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
I've found some CC piccies - see recent changes - but I haven't got the l33t wiki skilz to add them to the article. Jack Hughes (talk) 15:14, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Nice one, Jack. I'll keep looking, it'd be better to have one of the whole band, or at least the 3 girls togetherDeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 15:48, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Nice use of 'foxy' there Sue! (If I may call you 'Sue'?) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 15:48, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Would this dilemma be different if the conundrummee was a lesbian? Would men have a greater aversion to sex with another man?  Lily Inspirate me. 15:02, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't know Lils (I'm not a lesbian) so I'm not sure. Do you think a lesbian would be more likely to say 'yes' to the conundrum than a man? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 17:33, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
I know several women who have had relationships with men but then moved onto lesbianism for one reason or another - so they have already done the "sex with a man" bit and might not it find so distasteful as a straight bloke might find it. Also for the man it might also depend who was doing the receiving. In my experience many men don't mind doing anal but they would baulk at receiving it although I would hesitate to speak for anyone else here.  Lily Inspirate me. 17:52, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
You all know (of) one who's done as Lily says, but I couldn't have anything to do with a man with an hairy face. Never - on no account - ever - no way - UGH!. SusanG  ContribsTalk 18:18, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
I see what you're saying Lily, and it does make sense - although as Susan has pointed out the facial hair may be a step too far for some lesbians. As for your other point, which is often paraphrased as "you're only gay if you take it"; I once heard a colleague of mine quite succinctly rebut (for want of a better phrase) with a statement along the lines of "So you're saying that if you're reaming some bloke up the ass then you're completely hetero? Fuck off you poof!". I have to say I agree, so it would be "none of the Corrs" for me (the girls, although extremely pretty, are a bit skinny and flat-chested for me) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 22:53, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
@Susan - And I could never have anything to do with a woman who had a hairy face. ;)  Lily Inspirate me. 11:27, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

New image[edit]

I've uploaded a new picture. I got it from the corrsonline fansite. It has been scanned (rather badly) from a magazine, so I reckon it is copyrighted somewhere. However, I have cropped and further reduced the resolution (of what was a bad scan anyway), and as it is directly relevant to the article, I'm going to go for 'fair use' (or 'fair dealing' as we say over here). DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 11:45, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

That image is awfully close to a copyright violation. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:55, 15 March 2010 (UTC)


Should this really be a stub. Sure it's short but I don't see that there is much to add to it. Jack Hughes (talk) 12:33, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

I agree, the stub tag is not needed. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 12:59, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
Should this really be in mainspace? It doesn't seriously address any of the missions & it's pretty childish stuff. I say kick it to fun. WēāŝēīōīďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:56, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
Hmmm, did this conundrum cause you to discover some uncomfortable things about yourself, Weasel? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 11:14, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Not even remotely. It's only a "conundrum" in the same sense that any of these questions are, or any other idle playground banter. The same asinine logic that can tell you "what kind of person you are" based on whether a glass is half-full or half-empty. WēāŝēīōīďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 18:13, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm with the mustelid on this one. There's really no point to this article. Google returns 19k hits without quotes, the first involves what this article is about, and the third/fourth are category:science and category:sex here. In other words, the topic of the article doesn't even really "exist". I move for simple deletion. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:58, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
I'd just move it to fun. It's fairly amusing and already has a few friends of mine thinking deeply... Scarlet A.pnggnostic 20:30, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
OK. Can't we at least find an image we know is legal to use? ħumanUser talk:Human 21:34, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
CC of Andrea and of Jim - which illustrates the point. Nothing of the group, although I haven't finished going through DeviantART to find something someone's CC'd. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 22:38, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
