-I know you do not agree with everything I say.
-There are stamps in my gallery from ages ago that I don't like or agree with but I'm too lazy to go back, delete or reformat them all.
-Don't come to my page begging for, Llamas or points, or whatever, the answer is no.
Many times, I disable comments on my stamps BECAUSE it prevents repeats of the same comment, and I get unwell of people not reading descriptions or taking a general douche. Condescending, and righteous attitude with some of them, especially over trivial this happened several times with my opinions, and I got sick of it. I have a life outside the Internet, and if I left comments open, I would be swamped and get nothing done. (Especially, whenever I update a journal, those often get a sizable number of comments as it is and even then, I cannot get to them all right away most of the time). If I left a comment open under my work, I do that to see what people think of my opinions but as always; I leave them disabled.

To the 'Art thief discussion' bullshit!I feel NinjaKato has pointed out some good tips that you fail to look at:
"The case that riled many people up is despite their own rules; dA employees don't uphold their own orders and often even overlook or make them transparent. Anyone with half a mind can realize that when DA says, "Art theft is stealing a painting off a wall" is a cheeky way of stating the obvious: you cannot technically steal it if you cannot touch it. They were trying to be funny, but it backfired big time by making it seem as if digital media were not considered real artwork. In reality, you cannot blame people for thinking such a conclusion either. What with all the wool does staff is trying to stuff in our eye sockets over the last few years, it makes it hard to take any take it seriously.
Their goal was true, that is. They wanted to make people aware of what copyright law means and those people throwing around the term 'art theft' were using wrongly. The condescending nonsense of nomenclature within the
What needs to be changed...Spread this journal; feature it in your journal entries. Forums, organizations, everywhere you can. Deviantart needs to enforce etiquette policy or this site will collapse! As if it's not already started to collapse.
1. Take on a stricter policy on art robbery and other types of T.O.S. Violations.
I get exasperated as hell when I see that someone is stealing the works of famous authors. But what most bugs me is how hard it is to get the problem solved? It shouldn't be hard to find an operator to remove a withdrawn item. When an art thief reposts an art, it doesn't take a genius to review where the works are side-by-side and compare if they are stolen, flat-out, or mimicked. If it makes it easy to make it compulsory that people who are reporting for unauthorized copying, apply an overlay picture or a side-by-side example. Most of the time in my own practice, I've been able to ask the person to take the picture down on their own and sometimes they do it. (U
A message to deviantARTI deeply apologize for this, because of several mistakes that I made in this journal I had to do a set of corrections.
Spread this review; highlight it in your journal entries, conferences, organizations, everywhere you can. Deviantart needs to enforce etiquette policy or this site will collapse! This must reach the front page for everyone to view it and spread it. DA team must listen to us!
I refuse to tolerate your double standards that you're performing it because; I'm annoyed about the rebrand. I'm annoyed about your direction, your lack of focus in key areas and your lack of communication. This community uses to be terrific. There were days when you could report a pedophile on this site and you were 100% sure the pedophile or pedophile protector will be banned. After comprehensive changes that you did, this community has started dying, pedophiles, cyber bullies, trolls, spammers, youthful deviants, R34 art; pedophile protectors like Ach-TheNUTS are unmercifully
How to avoid trolling on the Internet?It's no secret that the members of deviantART are an opinionated bunch! For good or ill, there's always plenty to say about art that speaks to them. This is great, yet amidst those opinions, you're bound to get reactions that are nothing more than word pollution or troll bait. How many of you have logged into deviantART and faced with this problem?

We've all witness it, been a victim of it, spam their page with insults (tried to "troll" them back) or at least heard about it: Folk out in the digital world living for nothing more than the joy of ruffling peoples' feathers. Plenty of times we tried to get rid of them either by insulting them back, calling them names or some of us went THAT far by sending them death threats and wishing them to die. But the question is, does worth wasting all energy on children who are wasting free time by making accounts just to harass and insult you? No, I believe
More unwanted dA updatesThis is a blog for DevNews ~ These other Groups will, also, feature the blog: ohioDeviants Group-Eaze disney-parkhoppers DisneyDreamers All-Art-Forever dA-Is-Not-Porn etc. The latest update that deviantART did was limiting the number of members who want to join our groups. The maximum is 10 deviants per day. The capability of receiving an unlimited number of deviants at any time day and night have become a history.
That describes everything, I was completely oblivious that unlimited deviation submission was against deviantART policy. Does anyone care to describe, why or how, specifically? You need to start listening to your valued members who pay for this site. They are not a bunch of idiots who are out to cause trouble, leave crude, insulting messages or bully people. They are people who have been involved here for many years and love - or loved - this place and your behavior is only making things
dA members, you might want to read this report!In case, you were wondering what the deal is with why certain cases of 'theft' are not taken seriously. Much sums it all up with evidence. I know that protect art is not our favorite admin, and considering what problem he created 4 weeks ago, it only proves how this community will seriously go downhill after this.
The short story: The reason 90% of the reports for theft is not fixed, especially third-party reports. Is because plainly "the best would be is begging an art thief by flooding his inbox with walls of useless journal about "so called copyrights" recommend a thief to read it, or discuss with him about a mess that he made instead reporting him for what he did by posting art that he doesn't own". Including "changes, edits, traces, and references are becoming regarded as acceptable by dA"-- meaning if someone does any of these your report will probably be partially ignored if not completely.
According to the citation that I will quote here:

You don't need premium to block adsWhen I first time came here, the first I notice is members of the deviantART community who have a subscription. Another I notice is that they don't have annoying advertisements as if non-subscribers do. I got subscription twice. Once from ARVEN92, the second time from another friend of mine who I cannot remember his name. In the end, I decided to do a search and find an alternative that will allow you to block advertisements without paying a subscription. Then I discovered a browser extension called (ABP) AdBlock Plus, who has the ability to block the tracking, an annoying advertisement with a sound on it, including malware and tracking devices. I decided to install it on my browser, and the results showed up. Not only you are getting a faster Internet speed, but you also have the ability to open several multiple tabs without getting your browser or computer machine crashed. I once open a dA page and YouTube at the same time. I could watch the video and view announcements at the same t
U.S. law and dA policy on copyright infringementHello! If you are addressed in this article, then you came to the right place.
NOTE: I'm not telling you this to be rude; I am doing this for your own good. I'm NOT doing this because I have anything better to do in my life; I'm doing this to get you out of trouble! I don't like watching people getting banned because they go against the rules of dA terms of service. If you block me, flag my observation as spam, or hide my commentary, I will still be able to report the deviation that is violating U. S. Law and dA policy.
I will only report the deviation if I see it's breaking the rules or I have an evidence of it.
You are committing a serious crime called art theft, or commonly known as "copyright infringement."
When an artistic or literary piece made, an automatic copyright is created for that piece. However, when someone takes a copyrighted piece and claims it as their own or edits the copyrighted piece, they are violating someone else's rig
