Reading this, I then realized just how much personal information is attached to our deviantART accounts.
With that said, deviantART needs to do a better job of securing our Billing and financial accounts information. If you want to have a premium account, buy points or activate your wish list; deviantART needs your billing info, which it then stores practically in plain sight. All you need to do in order to see this info is just visit the premium upgrade page or any page dealing with a sales transaction while on deviantART.
A lot of evil can be done with a person's name, address, phone number and email; Especially when their financials are tied in with those things. A hacker with that info can sign the victim up for spam, magazine and/or pornographic site subscriptions and/or sell the info to agencies. They can also have the victim billed for things, which a

“The river is getting too close, Mockingbird!” I heard out
of the small cave, the leader, and Amaya argue. “The digging the pit did
nothing!” I could feel Mockingbirds tense anger, despite his best efforts. He
had done something! The hole he dug helped slow the water down from reaching
camp! Mockingbird’s just trying to prove
Looking down at the sorted herbs and roots, I sat content
with my work. My paws pushed them back into their separate crevices in the
cave. The arguing started to cease. Tipping my head out of the cave, I saw
Mockingbird pacing around, and his ears flicked when he saw me pad towards him.
“What do you want, Leopard? I’m in the middle of so-” I cut him off.
“You did your best, you know” I sighed at him. His light
grey eyes looked at me sadly, as if he pleaded me for help, yet tried to hide
it. My mind drew blank after blank. I saw his hope fade in his face. I narrowed
my eyes a
Suggestion on Stopping Art theftThis is only a counter measure, not an all-in-one anti theft solution. Its just like how Captcha is used as an anti spam counter measure. Nothing can truly stop art theft (or Spam) but counter measures can be implemented to slow it down and help prevent some cases.Suggestion on Stopping Art theft3 years ago in Written Suggestions More Like This
I think deviantART should embed a special code of metadata into each deviation uploaded to deviantART. This metadata in theory could be used to help prevent and stop art theft by disallowing anyone not authorized by the original author from re-uploading the picture.
I mean if deviantART can tell you the camera brand and model, lens type, zoom, DPI, time of day and week, the time zone and position on the earth a picture was taken; then they could easily use metadata to tell if a picture has been downloaded/stolen from another deviant.
Plus, as I mentioned earlier, this only stops people not authorize. With a simple tick box system like those used for adding content tags, artist could add privilege levels for the deviation the

And the winners are - Se Description!
So! For the tree winners of the V Desert Drake, aka new dragon adopt, I'll need your favorite color/-s. It basically comes with "desert-colors", but usually with markings in one or more colors, like red, blue -(you name it), that makes them unique.
For the custom komoninos, send me a note of how you want it.
And for the Ti Longs, send me notes. Remember that the Ti Longs can be with any markings you wish. If you've been keeping track of my work lately, you know.
Ok people! Within an hour or so, we'll have our winners, even though everyone wins today, but you know what I mean
I'm gonna draw the winner later today, and well. My day was so great yesterday, that I'm gonna give everyone who entered a price! (You still have a chance to enter!)
3 deviants will be given a brand new dragon adopt.
5 deviants will be given a custom Komonino.
The rest will be given a custom Ti Long of their choi
