HoofsBanned

Hoofs is officially banned from DeviantArt. For more information, read below.

Due to the sudden increase in submissions of the character "Hoofs," our policies have been updated to prohibit the submission of any Hoofs art, fan art, or derivative works. We sometimes have to make difficult decisions for the benefit of the community as a whole, and the extreme nature of this character necessitated us making a change.

Though we do our best to err on the side of artists whenever possible, the nature of Hoofs as a character brings with it too much risk — one we're unwilling to take. As such, the new policies are effective immediately.

In case the action items resulting from this image ban are unclear, here are a few pointers.

DO

  • Check to see if your submissions contain Hoofs.
  • Avoid interacting with (commenting on or favouriting) art of Hoofs.
  • Spread the word about this policy change to protect your peers.

DON'T

  • Submit a deviation that includes Hoofs. This includes visual likeness, journal updates, and fan fiction.
  • Click on or near deviations others have posted of Hoofs.
  • Encourage others to post art of Hoofs or interact with artists creating Hoofs.

— Update

Our engineers have discovered a "software bug" that occurs when a deviant submits art of Hoofs with the tag SaveHoofs. Upon doing so, a badge in Hoofs' image will accidentally be granted to that deviant. We are working to get this fixed ASAP.

Please do not exploit this.
