Deviation Actions

EDIT: Please help!
After i saw this link about giveaways i wrote to Deviantart through the help desk to ask about it and they sent this letter. I'm afraid i don't understand everything, cos english isn't my mother language but if i understood right i can't hold giveaways with prizes. If someone can translate it better can you tell me what is the situation now? Holding giveaways with prizes is allowed or not? =P I really would like to know...

Hello seralune,

Games of chance (such as raffles, lotteries and other random giveaways) and fraudulent activity are prohibited on DeviantArt.

Our principal concerns are to avoid the exploitation of members of deviantART, prevent unfair treatment of deviants who are solicited to participate and avoid the appearance of impropriety from offers which are open to abuse as well as the various, and varying, laws restricting or regulating the conduct of games of chance in differing parts of the world. We encourage gift giving.  We encourage trading points for art or art services. We encourage the solicitation of points as donations.  

Games of chance, however, solicit with a promise of potential reward and we have no adequate means to confirm that the “game” is conducted fairly or within the requirements of applicable law which is why they are not allowed.

My dear friends!!

IMPORTANT: One of my friends sent a link recently, about holding giveaways like this is forbidden on Deviantart so i have to close this one sooner. :( I'm really sorry but i didn't know about this earlier.
But i would feel myself very bad if i won't give the prizes i promised so i will use the to choose the winners among those who had already entered.
I will announce the winners soon!
And in the future i can't hold giveaways like this but i can give gifts to my friends here, so i will choose randomly from the lot of awesome friends i know here and give gifts for them.
:hug: :glomp:

It is time to hold a new giveaway with lots of prizes!! :happybonce: :happybonce:
The end of this will be on my birthday on 12th of october. I will be 30th years old and i'm a bit nervous about this number...I'm afraid i will be sad and depressed about it so i thought if i hold this giveaway it will help me to be happier on my birthday =P :D

I actually didn't know about that rule either since I see quite a few giveaways on this website 0_0
