Thanks to everyone for your help testing the updated design of the Modal. We're still making tweaks before a wider release, but your comments were essential to helping us corner some issues!

Our next phase is ready for Beta, and once again, we need your help!

Sometimes deviants genuinely aren't sure what constitutes as Mature Content, Explicit, or some of our other reportable types of information. This feature brings three new aspects of reporting to help streamline our process and keep DeviantArt as safe as possible.

Introducing Reporting Notifications


Occasionally, when someone forgets to tag a deviation as Mature Content, or when they upload a deviation that goes against our policy, it can be a simple misunderstanding. For this feature, at some point after a deviation is reported, an anonymous notification will be sent to the owner, asking if the deviation is Mature Content (or whatever it was reported as).

This will give the owner a chance to address the issue and possibly rectify the situation on their own. If the owner chooses not to take action and it's not reported again, staff is likely to agree that no deletion or tag is necessary, and will likely mark the report invalid. If the number of reports rises, it will rise in the queue, and staff will more quickly take the appropriate action, whether that's adding a tag, deleting, or marking the report as invalid.

Note: Even though a notification is sent to the Deviation Owner, every report still goes to our staff for final approval. This feature is simply a chance for a deviant to fix what might be an honest mistake!

Introducing Auto-Tagging as Mature Content


If a certain number of people report the same deviation, that deviation will automatically become tagged Mature Content. As part of our Beta group, you will be helping us determine what that certain number should be.

However, what if those who have reported it are incorrect, whether due to trolling or a genuine misunderstanding of DeviantArt's policy?

Introducing Disputes


For every action taken -- either by a staff member or community-auto-tagging -- the deviation owner has the ability to "Dispute." This means, if enough people report a deviation to auto-tag it as Mature, the Owner can dispute this claim. DeviantArt staff will then take a close look into what was reported and make a final decision, sometimes reversing that action.

Same with a deleted deviation -- if a deviation is deleted by Staff, the owner will get a Notification, and if the owner believes it is allowed on DeviantArt and our staff made a mistake, they can dispute the claim, explaining why, and the staff will give it a second consideration.


That was a lot of info. To let it sink in, I'll go over our goals for this test.

About This Test


In this test, we would like you to assume two roles -- one of a Deviation Reporter, and one of a Deviation Owner.


:bulletgreen: As Deviation Reporter, your testing will be easy:
  1. Go to this Profile Gallery.
  2. Report one of the deviations as Mature, Explicit, or Underage Nudity.
  3. Go to the More Menu > Correspondence.
  4. Verify you have a notification there announcing that you have reported this deviation, what the Report-type was, and that all the links work.

FYI, we made a conscious choice to have this notification sent to that URL and not to your "regular" correspondence with your other notifications. We don't want reporters to feel spammed for doing their part across the site.

:bulletgreen: As Deviation Owner, your testing requires a few more steps:
  1. This is probably the only time in the history of DeviantArt we will ask this, but go to this deviation. Take a screenshot of it or Right-click-save-as... I promise, damphyr said it was okay. (Please do not test reporting using any other images besides this cute cat.)
  2. Submit this image as a deviation. You can submit it to Scraps if you don't want to spam your watchers. You can use the category: Photography / Animals, Plants & Nature / Domesticated Animals.
  3. If you have an alternate account, please report this deviation as Mature Content, Explicit, or Underage. If you don't have an alternate account and don't want to make one, please post your deviation URL in the comments below, and add the text: "Can another Beta User please report this for [Mature Content, Explicit, Underage Nudity]?"
  4. Once your deviation has been reported -- for Mature Content, Explicit, or Underage -- you should receive a notification.

    :bulletgreen: If it was reported for Mature Content, your notification should look like this.

    :bulletgreen: If it was reported for Explicit Pornography, your notification should look like this.

    :bulletgreen: If it was reported for Underage Nudity, your notification should look like this.
  5. From here, you can take two different routes:
    :bulletgreen: Get your deviation "auto-tagged as Mature Content" by making a comment to this journal, something like "Please report this deviation (post URL) for Mature Content. I am testing auto-tagging!" And some Good Beta Samaritans will come along to help you.

    :bulletgreen: Tag me in a comment (@ LaurenKitsune) and ask me, as a staff member, to either 1) Tag your deviation as Mature Content, 2) Delete it as Explicit, or 3) Delete it as containing Underage Nudity. After I do this, you will get a Dispute Notification. You can now test out the Dispute ability by clicking that button. You can optionally tag me again in another comment, and ask me to accept or reject your dispute. At this time, you should get another notification, letting you know the decision that staff made on this deviation.

:bulletgreen: Finally, as a helpful Beta Tester:
  • Please go into the comments below and report URLs posted by your fellow deviants, so they can test out the receipt of Owner Notifications.


If all the above sounds confusing, please take the time to read it slowly. It should be able to be completed if you take it one step at a time!

What to Report


Here are some areas to focus on in your reporting and looking at notifications:
  • Design, look, and feel of the notifications.
  • Functionality of the links and buttons.
  • Function of auto-tagging as Mature Content.
  • Function of Disputes.
  • Your reporting experience as a whole.


Please note that (besides for this test, of course) incorrect / inappropriate Reporting behavior, such as spam-reporting or troll-reporting for whatever purpose will result from a ban from accessing the Moderation Desk as a whole.

Bugs can be reported in the Reporting and Notifications project. Please DO NOT report bugs as a comment in this article, since there will be so many comments back and forth asking for Beta testers help and Staff help. I don't want bugs to get lost in the process.

In your Bug Report, please include a link to the deviation you reported, as well as browser info, OS information, screenshots, links, reproduction steps, and anything else you think will help describe your issue. Thank you in advance for your help!

LaurenKitsune realitysquared damphyr spyed 

I notice you claim to be interested in making the reporting system more streamlined but thus far it appears to be anything but. My case and point being the help desk, I can no longer contact the help desk about anything. Not just reporting deviants that are breaking the website's rules but also about general inquiries. I can't find the method to contact them about abusive deviants. There is no options for contacting the help desk about anything whether I go to what used to be the help desk here  help.deviantart.com/ or to the new one here www.deviantartsupport.com/en/ I have never filed spam report tickets or attempted to misuse the report feature so there is no reason for me to be blocked from using it. A deviant's ability to ask for clarification on a policy is actually something that cuts down on the number of reports that have to be filed. There is currently a petition to bring back the original help desk. I dare any one of you to make a second account that isn't gifted with your admin privileges that way you can check and see for yourself what I'm talking about.

You claim "We don't want reporters to feel spammed for doing their part across the site" yet there are journals right now like this one with hundreds of names on it of deviants whom that deviant suspects are reporting them. If you click the ctrl and F buttons before typing in my account name, you will find my name on that list. Since it was added I have been bullied by deviants I didn't know and insulted behind my back. This list has been passed around a community of 3d artists that focus primarily on a specific fetish called super heroines in peril. A few years ago when report groups posted up sections in their groups with lists of policy violating deviants the deviantArt staff posted a journal calling it "bullying by proxy" before the deviantart administration shut those groups down. I have tried to disband these groups. I have tried to ask the deviantArt staff for help. Now reporting deviants are being bullied by proxy and the deviantArt staff have done nothing because the bullying deviants have not linked back to their accounts. You do not care about reporting deviants at all. 

This isn't a bug, this is a general complaint. Is there an admin whom I can speak with over the phone about this? I don't want to try emailing anyone, I want to actually speak with an administrator.

I believe there is a flaw in this new system?? Many users who are quite popular or draw maybe My little pony or any other innocent stuff like that art are getting reported out of spite and/or people just don't understand the image and because the bot thinks the image is "inappropriate" it flags it. And when lets say a fetish picture gets to the front page. Multiple people would report it yet nothing happens and it doesn't get flagged?? I've actually seen more of that kind of fetish photographs on the "What's Popular" page than actual clean art. Could someone please fix this??

I don't like the new reporting system that you made. One user complained that a pornographic photographer blocked him because he told him to obey the rules. He cannot report his nasty photos now because a pornographic artist blocked him. How do you expect from the copyright owner to report an art thief if an art thug blocked him? When you block the user, you automatically hide all of his illustrations and his activities.

Any deviation is visible if the user is logged out, and the URL can be grabbed that way.

Reporting an IP violation does not require a user to be logged in and can be filed at any time.

Thanks for the explanation. But what should we do if the illustrator doesn't have a profile on deviantART.com? There have been several instances where people have complained that they cannot report copyright infringement because they are not copyright holders. A professional illustrator who has an account on your site died a few years ago from sepsis. Now we cannot report a copyright infringement because he passed away. The same goes for the magazine that the team of lawyers wrote; it doesn't allow us to report art thieves.

Everything was concise and easy to understand, and worked as expected.
I liked the design of the notifications, they were attention catching without being obtrusive.

I'm not sure if my challenge was accepted, denied, or still under consideration yet. If either of the former, I haven't received a notification. If the latter, I think there should be a way to let the deviant know? It doesn't bother me because I don't have any investment in that picture, but it's been seven days and I imagine that someone with an actual challenge might be getting a bit antsy.

Other than that, everything went smoothly. I really like this feature, that it can temporarily remove potential problem pictures before the staff can get around to looking at it but also still takes the artists input into consideration

I stumbled on a profile where the artist have drawing of young women being kidnapped and raped (we don't see the intercourse, but we see some sexual torture, and the description or title is clear on the fact that this is a rape!). I'm surprised I didn't find any thing in the report tool to report those disgusting things! I don't want just to hide them, I want them removed! It's not normal that DA is approving rape!

How do we report underage participants? a 14 year old girl should not be making comments on mature images on  my page EVER. If an underage participant of Deviant Art is clearly breaking the TOS they should be banned permanently until they can prove their legal age.

I blocked her so she cannot make comments further or fav my images. But that doesn't stop her from interacting with any other artists.

What's Next for Eclipse: FeedbackLate last year, we released the beta version of DeviantArt Eclipse – a redesign that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. It’s one of our biggest, most ambitious updates to date, which is why we’ve chosen to open it to Beta Testers as early as we did. Not only do we need Beta Testers’ help locating and squashing those pesky bugs, we want to gain deviants’ feedback, thoughts, and opinions on the current Eclipse experience and what we should include in the future. We’re very proud and excited with the level of collaboration we’ve been able to achieve with the DeviantArt community, and we hope to continue this as we further develop Eclipse.The Beta version of Eclipse has brought many changes (see them here), with even more in store, including ways to customize and personalize Profiles! We Hear You!Since the Beta launch of Eclipse late last year, we’ve received a lot of feedback regarding just that: Feedback. You might have called it a few other names in the past: Feedback, Message Center, Notifications, etc. Let’s establish what Feedback is: it’s comments and replies made on your art, any mentions of you or your art, and correspondence with other deviants and groups. We processed and analyzed your thoughts and opinions on Feedback, and how cumbersome it had become to interact with friends on Eclipse. With that, we’re excited to show you some major updates in the works.Changes We’re Making Based on Your FeedbackNew NavigationYou can now easily access Feedback by clicking on the bell icon next to your avatar, with all the different areas visible for you to filter through. Just a simple click and you can filter to view only your comments or only your mentions.One-Click RemoveA popular request from several Beta Testers! With one, easy click of a mouse you can tidy up Feedback to your exact liking. Multi-Remove & Multi-SaveEnjoy a more seamless process of removing multiple notifications in an efficient manner, or saving some of your favorite Feedback moments.Let Us Know!We understand how important being involved and embedded in the DeviantArt community is, and we hope the updated Feedback helps you connect and communicate more easily. These upcoming updates will be announced in @danlev's weekly change logs as soon as they are live. Share with us in the comments what you look forward to using in Feedback, as well as anything else you’d like to see improved!Got something else on your mind?

Eclipse Change Log: January 30, 2019In this week's change log, we have a small handful of bug fixes and improvements as we continue with the larger features that are in development. Stay tuned for more, and keep the bug reports and feature requests coming!Change LogThe "add to favorites" panel on deviation pages now allows you to select multiple collections. (Popular request, suggested by @kage-niji, @sa6044, @tanyasimpson, and many others)Bios are now editable!Literature thumbnails now include four lines of preview text. (Suggested by @wynbird, @battlefairies, and many others)On the Daily Deviations page, literature now includes preview text. Various other smaller bug fixes and stability improvementsThe new "add to favorites" panel lets you easily add a deviation to many Collections. (Artwork: hidden view by @umbatman)Literature thumbs — including on the Daily Deviations page — now include preview text.Using the New Bio EditorTry the new Eclipse bio editor! When adding a bio to your Eclipse profile, we'll start you off with your bio from the old site. Please keep in mind that some elements, such as thumbnails, were not able to be transitioned to the new editor, however you can still add them to your bio. We recommend trying the new image and gallery features to share your favorite artwork in your bio.Also note that due to migration issues, bios of deviants who are not on Eclipse are static, meaning if they update them on the old site, the changes will not be reflected on Eclipse until that deviant switches to Eclipse and edits their bio using the new editor.

Eclipse Change Log: December 12, 2018

This week, nearly the whole DeviantArt team — encompassing staff members from Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, Kiev, and Vancouver, to name a few — has come together at our HQ in Hollywood to focus on Eclipse and plan what’s in store for 2019.

As a reminder, we’re continuing to work on the bigger community feedback concerns — including customization and improvements to Feedback — and we hope to share more soon.

Since the holidays are coming up, and many people on our team are traveling or taking time off, we won’t have a change log to share for a short while. But we want to let you all know that we are continuing to review and analyze your feedback, and we look forward to sharing more updates with you early next year!

(Popular request!)Scraps are back!You can now mention a deviant just by typing (rather than selecting them from the list).The Gift dropdown on profile now tells you when you've already given them a llama or they are full of cake. Removed minimum character count in Status Updates and Journals, allowing deviants to share a post that simply includes a deviation, gallery, or video.
