Further more, pass this list along and help stop some of these accounts before it's too late.
Dear dA, give us a report user account, it gets annoying having to click on every image to report them if they are uploading porn, you need to get give us that feature so you can ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Thank you.
What can you do? You can send a ticket to dA and report the accounts and if you want to protect yourself from future attacks, just block these accounts.
If you see a deviation with a spammer, copy their username and send it to me to add to this growing list. That way many others, even you, can protect yourself from these morons.
Here is a list of spam accounts you can block, add them to your block list.
Just go to settings, Personal, hit General, then scroll down to Blocked. Copy the list and paste, don't worry for double names of the same account, the double copy will be deleted from the list.
I suggest up update your block list whenever I update this list so you'll be ready for it! Thank you. What you do is highlight all the names on the list, and copy them, follow
guide above and you'll be fine.How To File A Report
I figured I'd let you all know about this since it seems that DA has made it way easier to report directly to them if blocking a problem deviant fails. So let's go with someone going around a block to harass you as an example here.
Step 1: Go here contact.deviantartsupport.com/…
Once your on the page click on Social Interaction Abuse Reports and Appeals
Then click on I want to report unacceptable behavior.
Choose Post Block Contact.
It will then ask if you were directly contacted or if someone you know was contacted by the problem Deviant. Choose the best one that applies.
In notepad or whatever you use to write on your device and write down the following:
1. Please provide the username of the Deviant’s original account which you have previously blocked.
The main account blocked was ______________
2. Please provide the username of the Deviant’s new account which is now contacting you
The account name(s) are _____________
Specify if the contact(s) have taken place in notes, your page or through someone else's page on here.
3. Please provide a link to the comment where the post block contact took place
The deviant messages me/noted me/tagged me in a journal here ______________
Once you have done these three steps give as detailed a description as possible regarding the harassment timeline especially if your not the only person the harasser is bothering. Like if the person is using others to contact you, give the names of those accounts as well and links to the messages if possible. Note:
It is important to always report comments from harassers as spam because the staff can search your messages and notes for the Deviant accounts going around the block and view the messages. Remember: Report bad messages as spam. Never delete them!
Finally go to the Submit Ticket Button
and click on it. Make the subject Post Block Contact
Then copy and paste the text you wrote out with into the message window provided.
Once this is done DA will review your case and tell you what is being done about it.
So there you go, I hope this helps you all when reporting a problem to DA
(Once again, thank you to

devaintART Needs Improvement!
Considering the increase in harassment, art thefts and more, dA staff is lacking in doing anything and giving lame excuses to why they won't do it. Whenever someone steals you username, art style, user icon, and artworks; the staff of dA will tell you there is nothing they can do or some other lame excuse just to get around having to help you deal with the person(s) harassing/trolling/threatening/stealing from you and are trying to even be you!
deviantART, you need to stop ignoring us and listen. Stop being jerks and help people, stop being greedy and listen to those begging you for real help and not those filing false things.
When someone asks you to help them with someone trying to be them in so many ways, you must do something and not do a go-around and give a lame reply and expect it to fix itself. YOU HAVE TO ACT!
Give us a report button and investigate these things, there was that one time you nearly banned an artist who was being stolen by another artist. Posing as him, stealing his artworks, the thief contacting you several times that the REAL ARTIST was stealing from him.
You nearly banned the real artist!
When someone asks you to look into someone stealing their identity and everything, you must do it and help them! Don't ignore, you will lose people who will run off dA because you ignored them or gave them a lame excuse why you won't do anything.
And have you wondered why people are leaving for other websites like Weasyl.com, Tumblr.com or even FurAffinity.com? It's because of you being arrogant, selfish and not giving a damn about the users.
PAY ATTENTION deviantART, you need to help people and stop ignoring them. Identity theft, art theft are real issues on here.
People asking you to model with suspicious accounts:THEY ARE SPAM ACCOUNTS!
A lot of people on here are often targeted (photographers) by random and suspicious new accounts here on deviantART, the majority of these people send out notes requesting you to model for them and will pay, sometimes they ask of request photos of certain things and won't pay.
DO NOT DO THESE!
They are most likely a porn site operator looking for you to expose yourself for them for sick pleasure, find out more about you and things could get worse from there. If you encounter such accounts, never heard of the users and their account looks suspicious, BLOCK THEM!
You can also report if needed to further protect other users by copying the note the user sent to you. I know a good few people on here that have been targeted by porn sites asking for you to 'model' for them.
I myself was targeted once before, so I know what it's like to be targeted by these accounts. Remember to BLOCK
these accounts and send me their username!
They'll tell you that you have potential, that they'll pay you, that you'll be famous. DO NOT LISTEN! REPORT THEIR ACCOUNT! SEND THE STAFF THE NOTE! BLOCK THEM!
And tell me their username!
This is a section for user accounts targeting women for pron, fake modeling and pressuring them to perform sexual acts on Skype.Usernames - Reasons
- He has been going around commenting photos of women, ranging from cosplay, nudes and normal photos to say things about them and then send a suspicious note asking them to model and be paid, to talk on Skype and about a fake studio to get women to pose for porn and humiliate them in the process. He is disguising it as a 'modeling company' when he's obviously not. His note has been compared to that of the Nigerian Prince scam. - Remember, this is a scam!
He also has two other accounts, going by the usernames: Geo-19-87
. He runs three accounts in order to scam as many women as possible and then persists if a woman says No to him. He will keep hounding them till they say yes or they block him. SPREAD THE WORD!
- He is going around trolling people and leaving hateful messages on their pages, harassing them, racism, Nazism, and more.
Art - Photo Theft
These people are known to steal from other people's work and claiming it for themselves, and can go so far as to lie they're doing it to 'promote' the real artist who didn't GIVE PERMISSION!
Many photos and artworks are usually stolen from various websites and/or Google. These people need to be reported!
Once again dA, give us a REPORT ACCOUNT option on everyone's page and report what they are doing.
- traveltime -
Stealing photos from Google and possibly other websites and claiming he took them himself. He is also known to harass you if you refuse to do anything for him for free. He will call you rude and then insult you with vulgar. Traveltime
& Get wreck'd, traveltime
As of late, it seems more and more accounts are popping up using the same username as a popular or new account in order to pose as the person and copy or steal their works for their own.
It has even gone so far as stealing the same bio, user icon and posing with the same name of the real account owner.
These people need to be shut down quickly for they are stealing someone's identity on here as well as stealing their works as well as copying while trying to claim innocence.
I was approached by a user who found an account that stole their username as well as a photo from their gallery.Usernames - Reasons
-x-Untamed-Shorty-x -&- Untamed-Sh0rty -
Stolen username from another user and altered it so to be able to get on dA while stealing works from the real user. The accounts are 'new' and already a thief account.
I'm having to wonder if these punks are being encouraged on Tumblr or somewhere to be jerks to folks here on dA who worked hard to express who they are and find out that someone is posing as them and stealing or copying their works. deviantART, please give us the option to report user accounts!
Men/Women Targeting Women/Young Girls/Pedos:
This is the section of male user accounts who go around harassing, insulting, slandering, asking for porn, and being total assholes to women on deviantART. You will find their usernames on the List section, just copy the list and paste it with the directions above to block these accounts and men/women who harass women.Usernames - Reasons
- He is leaving nasty messages on female user pages or he faves their stuff from them and half the time starts a fight because of the crap he has on his page. He has anger issues against women. He is calling women 'post-op dudes' to insult their beauty. You can see so here: Leopard Robe
- Rustyspoonz -
Commenting on any photo of a woman in praise before sending them a private message about him jacking off to their bodies and faces in the photos. There is a reason there are porn websites you sick perverts, go there!
- KefkraRowan -
Sends the exact same note to any woman on dA stating he was away from dA (when he clearly isn't) and says he loves any photo you have and claims to be writing a book. He has been noted for harassment. It’s all a scam to try and get women to send him photos of themselves for this “story” he’s working on.
- andpandand -
If you go to his page it’s close-up shots of his dick and a story about him and two girls giving him an erection. Inappropriate for dA!
- steals people’s art and uses MS Paint to paint diapers on their characters and posts the edited art in his gallery claiming it was requested by the original artist.
Like many art thieves, he claims “fair use” and refuses to accept that when a copyright holder or creator of the content he’s stolen tells him to take down their work or character he’s supposed to comply and instead ignores them as a way to troll them.
Also on a disturbing level, his diaper fetish doesn’t seem to have an age limit since he has drawings and images of underage girls and teens in diapers posted in his gallery. Something he once again claims other people are asking him to post.
- m1dn1ght5ent1nel -
likes to try and manipulate underage girls from this site into sending him nudes and engage him in cybersex after he gains their trust and gets them on his instant messenger.
You can see visual proof of his attempts to seduce an underage girl on this deviant’s journal here
- Sends out creepy notes and a link to his dick, do not check his gallery are there are graphic images that AREN'T allowed on dA.
- AKeight -
Claims to be a female user that has posted inappropriate photos of the same image on their account while going around harassing women, calling them sluts for cosplays. This user is possibly a male based on notes sent to female users. They are highly rude and will call any woman a slut while posting slut photos themselves.
Stalkers/Harassers Causing Trouble:
This section is for people who are known as stalkers and will not stop harassing other users on dA and/or real life. These people have no lives when they come to stalking others in order to cause issues against the one they're stalking, even if they were told to leave the user alone.
They are also known as harassers who have to keep harassing people to start fights and then play victims when they are called out. If you block them, they will make other accounts or have others to continue harassing you to the point you have to block them while they claim they are the victims. Do not get involved with people like this and BLOCK all of them. What they are doing is against dA rules and if they persist could end up with police involvement.Username - Reasons-xOSphynxJinxOx -
This user has caused issues in the past with another user and was told several times to back off and leave the other alone. Recently discovered that the user has been once again caught stalking and would soon cause harassment.
- This user will start fights with other users and claim victim when you reply back at him to leave you alone. If you block him, he will use multiple accounts to continue harassing you and will get his friends involved to torment you and demand you to give him 'respect' or attention cause he's the 'victim'. He has been noted by many other users of him starting fights for no reason and targeting friends of those he targets in order to start more fights.
Journal about him: Multiple Account Harasser
Spamming Artworks with 'fanfics' for no reason:
- He's a spammer who leaves fanfic type comments on people's pages with no explanation and when you ask him to stop he becomes rude and insulting, be wary of this user.
