For those wondering what happened to VintagePinkDress
This is a message from her on Discord:
"Hey guys, I know you've all been wondering what's happened to me, so let me explain (this is going to be a long post, so I apologize):
I am done with Deviant Art for good.
I'm not sure what happened, but for some odd reason, they decided to ban my account. I got a lame-ass e-mail saying that I "violated terms of service" without any details of what I actually did. I'm not sure if any of you were following a user name Rubii-chu/Deki-ruu, but the same thing happened to her and she was robbed of her money needed for her illness and to help with her living situation at the time, which is beyond disgusting.
If you guys needs me, I'll be posting on Instagram, Amino, Toy.House and YouTube from now onward under the same username, VintagePinkDress. I don't want to continue to support a website that screws over its innocent users and lets trolls get away with murder right in their faces. I decided to leave the account deactivated and leave for good for the sake of my mental health because this just too much.
Once again, I'll be using my Amino page mainly for posting art and re-creating my Closed Species communities there (one I figure out a system), so follow me there if you wish to continue to see my art...
Finally, if you guys don't mind, if could you spread this message on DA it will be much appreciated. I apologize for just now getting back to everyone on this situation, but I'm severely stressed out from this and IRL at the moment to the point where I need to talk to a therapist.
I want to start 2019 on a new note and away from that toxic website and I guess this is it. Take care everyone. - Vintage"
While I'm glad to hear from her, it is sad to hear that the staff is behaving like this. They don't seem to keen on responding to her either, which only makes the situation worse.
