Does Not Illustrate: Edit War get usage counts

Death by Yuyuko Moeness
In short, this pic tells nothing about edit wars. Correcting somebody that's wrong in the internet is totally different from editing. They're not very related.

Besides, I'm working on a YKTTW entry called Correction Bait which is about people being irresistable to correct any mistakes s/he sees, and this pic suits way better on that entry. So I really hope we move this image to there, and get another image for Edit War.

For reference, the original pic:

I see nothing wrong with this image.

The only issue that'd come up is that we'd have a duplicate image situation if Correction Bait launched with the same image. This topic could reasonably decide to opt for keeping the image there, but unless you've got a better suggestion for Edit War, you're probably better off finding another image for Correction Bait. (Which I recall saying in the YKTTW, actually.)
In uffish thought
[up]Agree. The image is very funny and illustrative where it is currently, on Edit War. What about using the Affect/Effect strip on Correction Bait, since that fits there but not here?

If we do move it there, then a page history screenshot of a faked, mundane war might work (I can make one with my sock in the sandbox, but would have to wait until Sunday), but I'd prefer to keep the current here.

This one?

That's pretty good, actually.
serial tweaker, sorry
I like keeping the image on the Edit War page, and putting [up] on Correction Bait.
please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.

[up] Agreed.
What do you mean? We don't have a Correction Bait page.

[down] I'm a moron. Ignore me.

See OP, it is a YKTTW.

Agreed on keeping.

If I may make a suggestion from the Cracked Photoplasty Contest that gave us the Troperiffic TV Tropes movie

No, the other one.
I think #4 would be better as an image for Correction Bait. The current picture for Edit War fit better here than there.

Also, I just laughed at the [citation needed] bit on #10.
Check out my fanfiction!
The existing image is perfectly good. It illustrates the foundation of all edit wars.
