Another one of the "controversial" artworks that got me suspended. Falsely reported and removed for being deemed of "sexualized content" by the admins.

I'll also take the opportunity to mention that I have a Newgrounds account, I'll be uploading a lot of my deviantart deleted artworks there as well:

The admins need to get it through their thick skulls that Shantae IS LEGAL AGE!!

Besides, if she was a minor, why would WayForward, HER OWN DEVELOPER, be putting her IN SEXY OUTFITS?!

DeviantArt needs to get less idiotic admins or it'll fall apart.

Apparently Wayforward made a comment on twitter about her beign 16, which is weird. Maybe they're trying to discourage people from drawing lewds of her? I don't know. I'm not sure what they gain from leaving her at 16

Maybe they'll have to make her an adult by the next game.

Very cute take on her.

You got banned for this? Seriously? I see Daily Deviations that are way "worse." That's ridiculous. But yeah, as you said it might've been an automated bot misunderstanding...

Yet they insist a real person checks these, so they're either lying or they just deleted everything without checking.

This pretty much explains this whole stupid situation in a nutshell!

Or they don't want to admit that they don't actually check the claims and instead use bots for the process
Asurabobo's avatar
Yeah that makes sense too.

Seriously? I've seen stuff, obviously< that deserves to be suspended and this isn't even remotely close to it. Sexualized content my butt, Shantae is supposed to be a hotty and if whoever reported this has a problem with it then they probably have a problem with character herself.

This was the response the help desk gave me, but it doesn't make sense at all.

I'm almost sure that they just delete everything if someone gets suspended from some reason. Which in my case was mass reported artworks.

Ya know this pic is actually similar to one in the original GBC Shantae instruction booklet.

Oh no! She has boobs, better remove it! (Serriously wtf is sexual about this??)

I'll assume they just removed everything once it was reported. Either to save time or to be safe.

If they're saying the truth about real people reviewing this stuff.
KatLime's avatar
Since they removed everything without reviewing it, it seems more like a bot did it. But then again, I've had friends that reported harassers, when it continues after blocking, but they just get a "oh, just block them" message.

They're waiting until it becomes a financial problem like tumblr maybe.
KatLime's avatar
I guess so, yeah.
