I'm sure people coming up to you and saying it's breaking the rules would be distressing as first, especially if many people flock you. Nevertheless, you can just:
-Look at the FAQ they are leading you to and delete the work that breaks whatever rule is there.
-Ignore it and possibly be banned and suspended if you wish.
Yes, this was a simple someone telling this person that a piece of someone's art broke a rule. Creating a call out on someone just for telling you to obey the rules of this site will cause more trouble than help. It doesn't make you look cool; it doesn't make you look tough; it makes you look like you are one-step away from being banhammered, as you are too stupid to stop digging your own grave.
This goes for everything you do on the Internet, whenever is posting malicious comments, pornography, spam, stolen art or creating a personal hall of shame.
Even if you block me, I can still report you and your abusive behavior.
--World-Hero21 [A. M. Johnson]
Several times I had opportunities to people block me, hide my comment or flag it as spam just because I told them to obey the rules.
Posting something that isn't your property, you are claiming the image as yours, even though you may say that you aren't. In simpler words: What you post up here is automatically copyrighted to YOU. If someone else created the piece you are posting, then you are altering the original copyright, which is unlawful. Unless you didn't grant a permission from a creator of a piece that you want to present it, edits it, then don't post it! It doesn't fall under the Fair use category.
Commentary and criticism.
You may not use comments, notes or replies to make statements which are racist, bigoted or which contain other forms of hate speech.
Comments or notes which are lewd, sexual or otherwise pornographic are also prohibited.
Profanity and strong language used for emphasis conversationally or included in deviations don't need to be reported.
There is a chance that the administration will take action against your comments, especially if URL addresses you provided contain copyrighted material, or contain something that the deviantART administration doesn't allow to publish.
Flooding is the act of repeatedly making comments in a single area with the obvious intent of overwhelming a single web page with your commentary. Flooding can also take the form of filling a single comment or small group of comments with a huge amount of text, again with the obvious intent of overwhelming the page in question and possibly with the intent of causing substantial page load difficulties or browser crashes.
These acts are considered an abuse of the system and may lead to your account being suspended or banned without warning.
FAQ #34: Are there any rules for the journals?
You may not post anything to your journal which would be considered pornography (whether it be image or textual), you may not post racist remarks or other hate speech or post links to websites which host materials which are prohibited under the DeviantArt terms of service.
Also, you may not use your journal to display unfiltered images which are considered to be Mature Content.
FAQ #60: Do you allow "Adult," explicit sexual or pornographic content on DeviantArt? How about linking off site?
FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?
FAQ #214: What are DeviantArt's policies regarding avatars?
FAQ #305: Is posting 'Adult' oriented artwork alright if I censor it first?
FAQ #13: Does a Mature Content tag make it safe for me to submit whatever I want?
Avatars you posted may also not contain prohibited material, such as porn deviations, racist material, hate speech or anything which would require a Mature Content Tag.
In other words, whatever you post here, I'll report if it breaks these rules. I don't care what your excuses will be; I'll report it and give an order to staff members of CEO team to remove it.
I will obeying the rules. And never used mature stuff, no mature, that's cost trouble.
I want to avoid porn.
I don't remember what I've said but I got a reply saying "if you don't like how we work, go and create your own site". The whole comment was generally a big 'fuck you'.
Well... Shit! [SOLVED!]NOTE: The entire entry is not meant to be used for unacceptable purposes, such as "wall of shame" and harassment. This entry is meant to show the true colors of deviantART community and the way how they act. The same remains for screenshots.Fortunately, Daniel failed to try to expel something like this two years ago.
Well, I guess that explains everything, I was unaware that giving prizes away was against deviant ART policy. Does anyone care to explain, why or how, specifically, besides, why it's only relevant now? They remove the backup too, which was not much, overall, but still. This is not a problem if that is what you meant to say; this is going around to others too if you haven't known. You know how they say: The more you know, ...The longer you live. :iconthemoreyouknowplz: [EDIT]: An update of this entry by adding more screencaps about this. Big thanks to GR1MA and Meeshi for this.
