Mature Content in OC-Challenge

6 min read

Deviation Actions


Hi there!

After careful consideration, it's been decided that mature content works (sexual content, nudity, intense gore) will not be allowed in this group. DeviantART has some parts of their mature content policy that makes it unclear if a work will be considered too mature for the site or not. Due to this, I would rather not have to make a call on a work and it end up being against dA policy, so it's safer to simply not allow the works into the group. I'm also well aware that some of our members are under-age and some just don't want to see mature work. To be safe on the matter, I feel this is the best decision. If you're unsure on the deviantART policy in regards to mature content works, please read the following FAQs. It will only take a couple minutes of your time. :)

This decision is mainly based on mature content with a sexual nature or nudity. In terms of violence, we still accept mild violence but please no gore. (ie: bowels spilling from a persons belly, spewing large amounts of blood, etc)

FAQ #220: What is Mature Content?

FAQ #305: Is posting 'Adult' oriented artwork alright if I censor it first?

FAQ #23: What are DeviantArt policies on nudity?

FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?

Thank you for taking the time to read over the FAQs to familiarize yourself with the policy, and for being understanding of the decision. We want this to be fun for everyone! I'm looking forward to seeing more entries from everyone.

And that's all for now. :)

Peace Out Folks!

Venus (DestinieKirby) :heart:

So... we have to ADD mature content, or is it the other way around?

If you have a work that contains mature content, during the submission process you have to answer yes or no and select the level and type of mature content on your submission to all your works submitted to dA. What deviantART considers to be mature content is covered in the FAQs listed above in this journal. Some people don't put mature content tags when they should and any mature work, whether it has a tag or not, but does fit under the policy dA has for nudes and sexual content will not be accepted into the group.

Violent images are case by case, but we prefer there to be no gore in the deviations. Examples are provided in this journal. We will accept mild violence pictures like fighting scenes as long as there isn't a lot of gore present in the image.

1920s as in victorian style right?
DestinieKirby's avatar
There is a link in the journal that takes you the wikipedia entry describing and giving pictures of what 1920s fashion. A quick over-view is more like flappers and mafia style gangsters in New York, but I highly recommend looking the link over first. :) The book "The Great Gatsby" takes place in that time period. :)

The Victorian style was popular in the 1800s. ;P
