Be aware that we are just a regular group active on (commonly shortened as DA) with members that are just regular DA users. All we can effectively do is notifying our watchers and/or report violations of the TOS (Terms of Service, at… ) to the DA staff, which you also can do at the DA help desk ( ) the same way, along with bug (error) reports. Click here to read "The correct way to handle / report TOS violators" ( ).
ou can see the list of DA staff employees at the beginning ot the below featured journal called "Looks like a wave of Account Hacking/Spamming".

How to report art thieves:
"To the right of every deviation you will find a column which presents various bits of information and options. At the bottom of this column beneath the area devoted to Statistics you will find a link titled Report Deviation preceded by a small symbol of an exclamation point within a diamond shape..."…

You can watch these groups to catch official DA feature upgrades, news, and stuff:

You have DA related questions or just simply new here? :iconda-qna:

Interested in helping the web development of DA or want to talk with the developers?
Short idea/update
1)I'm not on my computer or dA extremely often. I'm usually on mobile and I have yet to figure out how to check group galleries/journals on my device. Eventually I'll figure it out.
2)I'm going to try and compile a list/cross list of bewares and post a SINGLE journal that would be updated every other week. Can't make promises or give a possible date b/c, well depressions a butt and it's quite a list to go through..even more so since I want to do alphabetically and I am one person.

Anyways a few links to new (old) post on AB lj specifically on dA. Again, don't harass the users. Just decide if you want to block, avoid contact with them, etc but don't harass them.………………

Hello! I am one of the artists commissioned by subnauticaslut (he used the other account radoptz to contact me) who did a commission for him right after I asked for payment but not notes never got answered, then I noticed he posted the cancer story in his after I finished the commission. My notes went unanswered.

Then after the cancer journal was posted another artist messaged me today that he commissioned them, because all my posts in his radoptz account went unanswered. This sounds fishy, if he needs money for his sister why are he using them to commission people?

I am afraid we're all being scammed. I can give you screenshot proofs. Beware of this person.
