Know and enforce the rules

HEY GUYS IT'S ALL FINE AND DANDY THAT YOU GUYS LIKE TO REPORT PORN AND KEEP DA CLEAN, THAT'S GREAT. JUST DON'T COMPLAIN IF WHAT YOU'RE REPORTING ISN'T CONSIDERED PORN BY DA AND COMES BACK NEGATIVE.

According to dA, porn is defined as:
-Intercourse
-Clear masturbation
-Penetration of any kind, including "toys"
-Sexual fluid
-Male erection
-Manually spread vagina

Cry all you want, but a drawing or photo of tits, ass, and plain 'ol pussy is going to get ignored. Reporting these just waste the staffs time and keeps them from looking at the real bullshit, like art thieves, abuse, and porn that follows the description above.
FAQ #23: What are deviantART's policies on nudity?
FAQ #251: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic literature'; what do you consider this to be?
FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?

Even if it is extremely distasteful, if it does not follow what is described in this faq, the staff will ignore you. The more you cry wolf, the less likely it is that they'll take you seriously when you find real porn. The more you report nudes that aren't dA's description of porn, the less time the staff has to deal with real problems.

It's ok if you don't like it. I actually think camshots are distasteful (though I do like well done pinup and artistic nudes). But unfortunately, dA doesn't delete pictures based on quality, they delete them based on rules.

People who whine about fetish art and/or anything SLIGHTY sexual are absolutely obnoxious.

I bet you a million bucks somebody thinks my avatar is porn because their brain is as empty as a rotten, hollowed-out log and they were born with too many chromosomes.

Here's what I think: 
just because is "Sexy" doesn't mean it's porn

Some people think vore is porn, when most vore on here has no Intercourse, Clear masturbation,Penetration of any kind, including "toys",Sexual fluid, Male erection, Manually spread vagina

It's because vore is a fetish, and fetishes are sexual attractions to weird things. Fetish fanart is considered sexual because of that, so people consider it to be fetish porn.

I hope I made it more clear to you.
NictheWerecatqueen's avatar
Yeah but not all vore art/stories are meant to be sexual. My vorefics are NOT made to be fapping material. In fact, people who fap to vore weird me out.

This is a great perspective. I support porn, but the rules are the rules. It makes no difference whether you like it or not. Too many people go around complaining who haven't even bothered to find out what the rules actually allow and don't allow. You can either try to be a rule enforcer, or try to get the rules changed, but it's not productive to go around trying to enforce rules that don't exist, just because they're the ones you want the website to have.

I normally report art if it breaks dA's porn policy, that is, it's not a this-looks-like-porn kind of thing. Although I hear that art that shows a penis (not an erect one) often gets deleted regardless, and I do think this site could use some quality control, like a space for beginners and a space for experts. I dunno though. :shrug:

Someone once made a stamp saying fetish art is porn because fetish art is made to arouse the audience. Laughing 

TheRealMrVendetta's avatar
Laugh LOL 
Whoever posted that stamp probably doesn't have enough IQs to determine fetish art from porn.

I reported one that is ALMOST has all types of porn-forbidden shit. guess what? NOTHING happened. :|
from toys to completely visible vagina. nothing :x
Does this violate the  rules
because it doesn't really show anything but it's pretty obvious what he's doing?

The problem with the rules about no depicting minors in sexual relations in fiction, is that there are some stories that DO depict them and are not considered 'child pornography'. I mean, check out the "Children of the Earth" series. It features several instances of adults having sex with children. Ayla herself has a baby when she is maybe eleven years old. And in "Summer Sisters", two girls have sex with each other, even if the acts and their privates are given euphemisms. It depicts two girls under the age of eighteen having sex.

Good to know. I have often been noted and half the ones I see don't fit as "porn". Not to mention, the staff only work on a Mon-Fri schedule, ending report items after 4 p.m.

I always thought finding a good image is like finding a rare gem. You have to go through all the crap above it to get it.

I found it hard to find the policies you mentioned above and I thank you for putting them up in the artist's description.
