I 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 flooding this community every day with their mobbing posts and personal hall of shame. You fired many astonishing operators from this site, like kozispoon, y2jenn, godofodd, deviant, dxd, and many others. The operators, who cared for this community, who were willing to listen to our problems, to solve them, to help us to make this community greater than ever, you were sold all of that, for a brand new logo and for a subscription that you renamed into CORE. You have no idea what is happening to this site because the money that you're receiving every day blinded you. You dismissed many incredible operators for the team of jokers who are calling themselves the team of lawyers. You lock-down on third-party copyright reporting and made the reporting harder than you should.
The community is not satisfied.
The community didn't detect us.
"Protect yourself!"-- What is your job then? We protect our work by placing a watermark, sign it, and post it under the pretenses on a site related to the art community. Believing that staff members will protect it. When we gather all evidence against widespread copyright infringement, what you get to do? Send us a response that you previously copied and saved to a Microsoft Office document, if you call that professional, then I pity you.
"Try to resolve disputes by conversation!" This is an example most frequently occurs and it's an argument over who is right and who isn't. Robbers dispute to be on the right about stealing people's work because they know the community doesn't care about our problems and our copyrights.
Conversation happens all the time, but they rarely come out better for many people. -Which are the reason why we go to the report alternatives because that is what staff members told us to do from day one?
I'm not sure what are you trying to do here, but it seems like you're trying to preserve any connection with the rules that you wrote. Then again, those commands vary on the time for benefits and that they even folded by the workers themselves, not to mention the change without several members of your site.
We sought a stricter report. -- We got a bloody new layout.
We asked for a more cooperative report team who will do their job than dance around it. -- We got a new message titled as NOTIFICATIONS.
We sought a safer place for our creation. -- we got the team who post garbage like "the art robbery discussion."
We asked them to low the prices of subscriptions. -- They increase the prices of subscriptions and rename it into CORE.
Copyright law only applies to officially copyrighted works. AKA: Works that come from companies and businesses that bought a license for official and complete ownership of that work.
Robbery, by definition, is -- "The action or crime of forging."
Embezzlement, by definition, is -- "Take (another person's property) without permission or legal right and without intending to return it."
Pedophilia, by definition, is -- "A sexual attraction to children."
Pedophile protector, by definition, is -- "A person who defends pedophilia and children pornography, whenever is fictional or real."
You're enabling one case of looting by inferring another. I'll be frank, I read the journal that you wrote and for the tiny amounts of decent, informative points, there were points that are far more terrible. Many of us are doing all we can to protect our deviations by plastering watermarks and reducing the quality. So even when it's stolen, it's hard to work together with. Now start doing your job and stop, pinning all the stress on us. -- you have a team for a reason, well had.
You're just here to advise, protect, and watch the members of this site. What are your excuse people, and why you are useless these days? Many of your members are kids who don't know a lot about laws and just always want to share their work. A ton of them leaves deviantART because they cannot stand people stealing their deviations and shooting just like it.
Companies protect the pros that are here and their IP addresses have copyright on them so many of them are safe. Those who have spent 10 + years on this site were sick with the way in which you work and the way you behave towards us. You don't own it you're a host. Therefore, you don't ask a question or a stake in how, when, or what is used. Ownership and rights belong to the creator works. Always will.
TL; DR version:
Follow what you lecture and educate your members (new and old) if you are ever changing site's rules. Raise their awareness of what rules YOU fulfilled for the site so they know what you and what not allow.
Please, don't discuss what robbery; trolling, cyberbullying and harassment are when you cannot interpret the word itself. You're only going to mislead people who may be unaware of the laws and implications of said laws. Making them more prone to steal or even be stolen from through leniency, lack, or sympathy for college artists.
About deviantART operators don't do their job, nothing should surprise me, nor the Government is planning to rule out a site owing to the way operators act towards us. Knowing how in which U.S. laws and U.S. Constitutions are working it can happen.
If deviantART doesn't do anything to aid in the investigation, the FBI could delete the site for allowing a pedophile to utilize their services. To groom young women for sexual role-plays this falls under the crimes of sexual harassment of a minor and calling for a minor.
I'm getting concerned about this because deviantART could be in deep trouble for permitting this. However, getting a way in which deviantART runs, nothing should amaze us. If that ever happens, the only alternative amounts to save all your hard work on your computer. Make a folder and store your art if it's possible. As for now, stay safe, which is least you, can do.
deviantART, please communicate to your user base please socialize with us. Listen to us, please. I hope that to prevent drama like this from being repeated. (Besides, renew your policy on art robbery, harassment, and trolling, pedophilia, and the pedophilia defense; seriously, that is a prominent problem!)
