Hi again. I just came back with a tiny update for anyone that follows me on DA, but doesn't check my main site for whatever reason. As the journal title suggests, there is a special anniversary poll on my site to decide the focus of the fourth anniversary mini-set that I will make and give out for free sometime next month! (It is a choice between all the female characters of mine that have not yet starred in an anniversary mini-set.) Votes in all the polls on my site are a bit low right now - but that one especially for whatever reason could use more votes! More votes will likely translate into more/better images for the mini-set, so check that out if you haven't yet! (Two weeks left before the poll ends!)
Besides that, I have just posted two early previews for two of the three base slave characters for my upcoming game - (human, half-elf) on my patreon page and I hope to have the third ready sometime next week. (One of those previews will get posted publicly on my site in a couple weeks; I will see what else I have by then - I may have one other image to post here sometime semi-soon as well.)
In relation to that other thing that I mentioned in my last journal - DA has so far refused to reinstate my one deviation (RLA Angels and Demons 2) or even tell me what was wrong with it in the first place. They have even suggested that I censor it somehow (which makes no sense in this case and should not be remotely necessary - and may not even fix the problem in the first place) and then re-upload it, and finally report it myself to see if it gets deleted again and what the moderators say about it... if anything, since they didn't give any reason at all last time. (I shouldn't have to highlight everything that is wrong with that idea...) I am now seven messages deep in a help desk communication thread trying to get answers, and now they are basically telling me that they don't have any and/or can't give them to me - which is funny since the removal notice said they would. Meanwhile, the help desk is pointing me to the moderators and saying only they would know; except I have no way to communicate with the mods at all - and literally everything else says to ask the help desk. Classic...
As far as I can tell, that one deviation technically violates nothing; and the total lack of any specific, legitimate issues with it from DA seem to corroborate that. I have looked through DA's content policies, and there should be no issues. (It would have been so easy for them to just say exactly what policy it violates - if it indeed did violate something, but so far no one has done that.) I have effectively been given the choice to put myself in double jeopardy just to get another tiny chance at finding out what may have been wrong with my image, or just let them delete it for what (by all measures) appears to be no legitimate reason at all. The image in questions was almost up for three years with no problems before it was deleted - so between that and the lack of any reasons for the removal, I have a hard time believing this is anywhere close to legitimate.
This is beyond stupid at this point, (yes, I know other artists have gotten far worse - but still) and I regret paying/supporting this site to be a "core" member if I get stuff removed without them even having the decency to tell me why (let alone have a legitimate reason for it) - as well as customer support that is literally worse than Comcast (which I have, so I know all about that) from what I have seen so far. Just in case of whatever, I also may have re-posted the image in question (RLA Angels and Demons 2) on another site close by; for anyone interested - though I won't say where.
So as usual... if you want access to more of my content (mini-sets, games, small animations, more story sets coming soon) and/or to help support my work on future projects, check out my patreon page!www.patreon.com/redleatherart
