The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Even if it is more veiws, perhaps with enough ppl something can be done. Isn't there a legal action that can be taken?
Sorry to hear about it. It's always a displeasure to hear of such things. Hope everything turns out for you.

I would like a link too just to be sure they didn't snag my stuff I know it gives the site more hype but we need to be able to get on there and scare them off the site

I updated the journal to fix the broken link. You should be able to check it out now.

The crappy part is that sometimes they miscredit work, so your stuff might not be under your name.

OMG !!!!
it's :rage:
I m :censored: when I find my work on oline stores all around the world....
I m sorry for you.
If these artworks were in one of your exhibitions maybe your galliery can attack them .
Or your publisher if there are involved in a published book.

I see that you dan't want to give the link, but he deviant art community is able to stop the activity of that kind of website sometimes. They help for that several times.

Oh no. :( Have you reported the website? Someone should be notified and the website as well as this person's 'business' should be shut down, as this is copyright infringement and illegal.
Art thievery is one of the lowliest most shameful acts. :disbelief: How awful.
