Community Operations

What is Community Operations?

DeviantART's Community Operations Department is dedicated to providing a high standard of community development, encouraging innovative and creative opportunities within the community.

Areas which we are responsible for include:

:bulletblue: Providing community support and assistance in the Help Desk.

:bulletblue: Providing customer service for prints and merchandise customers.

:bulletblue: Developing and enforcing policies, including copyright issues, inappropriate content and other violations.

Our department drives an environment where deviants can come together and be empowered within, and by, the community. We believe that community development is not a department -- it's an approach which helps people to recognize and develop their ability to reach their potential. By providing this organized, motivated, accountable and effective department, we are leading the way for deviants to continue participating in a way which they feel listened to, valued and inspired.

Dear DeviantArt,

I have received the notification regarding the administrative action taken in relation to an alleged copyright infringement on the following artwork:

Title: imagens - 04
URL: www.deviantart.com/playmobiles…
Submitted: April 16, 2023, 12:49:32 pm

I would like to bring to your attention that I am not the creator of the mentioned artwork, and I have not been contacted by the alleged copyright holder regarding this matter. As such, I question the legitimacy of the claim made against me.

It is crucial to establish the authenticity of the claimant and ensure that they are indeed the rightful owner of the copyrighted work in question. I kindly request that you provide additional information and verification to ascertain the identity and rights of the person who filed the complaint, Nguyễn Thanh Tùng.

I understand and respect the importance of copyright protection, and I have no intention of infringing upon anyone's intellectual property. However, it is essential to ensure that the claims made are valid and based on accurate information.

I kindly request that you thoroughly investigate this matter and provide me with clear evidence supporting the claim of copyright infringement. Without such evidence and confirmation of the claimant's identity, it is difficult for me to take appropriate action.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I look forward to your prompt response, including any additional information or clarification you can provide.

Is this group still active at all?

This group is dead - it has not been updated since 2014. DeviantART's admins and mods do not give a damn about us users, they let thieves steal our art and allow terrorist-supporters to spread their ideologies throughout this entire website.

I know the conversation that I’m responding to is several months old, but everything you said is true. I have been a member of this group since 2013. The last update, which this group had, was almost six years ago. Even I couldn’t have said it better.
