So since I had multiple journal entries about that, I'm going to write a journal.
First, the DA crew won't ban you without a notice or something and ignoring them won't help you there.
Second, if you get ban, don't try to create a new account, contact the DA crew, it may be long but that's the only way to deal with things.
Third, and that's the most important, members of DA can report your work, you will then be contacted. The problem is that recently, my friend have received some note about his work will be reported if he doesn't remove it... There's someone in DA who create multiple account and close them just to report you BUT those are not the DA members. If you receive a note on DA that stated you are going to get ban or anything, double check if it's the DA crew, like devart
, this may be a fake account. Staff members have a little deviantart icon near their name, other than that it's not a staff member.
You are warn, there's some people on DA (and Facebook, same person I guess) that will report you work and try to close your account. If that's so, contact DA help desk and see if it's legit or not.
Thanks for your attention, I hope I clarified things. Contact me if you have questions, I have been bullied in the past too on DA with some people so I know what it is.
PS : here goes the rules, beware, it's long !
----------Submissions depicting nudity are allowed providing that the model is eighteen (18) years of age or older and providing that the image is not determined to be obscene or pornographic as detailed elsewhere in the FAQ.All images containing nudity must be tagged as Mature Content upon submission. The deviantART staff reserves the right to mark any work with a general mature content tag if it is deemed by that staff member to require one.We strongly recommend that photographers submitting photographs of nude models have signed model release form documentation on record. While providing model release forms is not mandatory the deviantART administration reserves the right to demand such documentation at any time and to remove any work for which it is demanded but not provided.Photographs and other works depicting models under the legal age of eighteen (18) may be subject to restrictions.
When we mention 'pornographic content' in our policies we are specifically referring to specific subjects which we will clarify below. These restrictions apply to active and stored deviantART submissions, sta.sh submissions, PCP files, etc.
We apologize if the descriptions below are slightly graphic.The following contents are considered unacceptable for submission in either visual art or literature form and will be subjected to immediate removal without notice.• Masturbation Hands should not come into contact with genitalia in a manner which is clearly a display of fondling or masturbation.• Sexual Intercourse.Subjects should not be depicted in a clear display of sexual intercourse. This includes depictions of sexual penetration, oral to genital contact, genital to anal contact, and oral to anal contact without exception. Some depictions of same sex genital to genital contact and some depictions of oral to breast contact might qualify under this guideline as adjudicated by staff but not all will be considered an automatic violation of policy.• Vaginal, Penile or Anal PenetrationThis includes depictions of any object being inserted into the vagina, penis or anus.• Sexual body fluids (actual or simulated).There should be no depiction of semen or vaginal lubricants.• Erections.There should be no use of imagery depicting an erect penis, however there may be exceptions granted to illustrations created for legitimate medical or educational purposes.• Vaginal or Anal SpreadingFemale subjects should not be depicted with their labia spread or parted in any manner by hand or manipulated open or parted by any other artificial means or object. Neither sex should show the anus manually opened in a similar fashion.• Adult oriented (sexual) toys."Adult toys" consisting of dildos, strap-ons, vibrators, and similar items which are crafted to realistically represent a phallus or "receptive" vagina are not allowed. Items and devices which do not depict a male or female organ in a realistic fashion will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for acceptability in a submission. Submissions which are judged to be in violation of these guidelines will be removed without prior warning. Users found submitting such content may have their account banned or suspended without warning.Also be aware that we prohibit providing any outside link to another website which provides access to the material described above.
