Reply from the DA staff [link]
Shit is going down.....
As people probably know by now, there is an influx of deviations being removed by staff. They are either tightening their standards or there is someone going around reporting them ( mainly Naruto based works) I have seen a bunch of the pics that were deleted and I have to say a few of them did not violate DA TOS ( but most of them did and needed to be removed )...Maybe DA hired a new admin
I am guessing lots of people forgot the 'no aging up characters' rule. Merely stating a character is 18+ isn't enough on DA. The character will remain the age they were when they were first introduced. Honestly I hated this rule in the beginning BUT I understand why the admins did it. Its because there is a lot of stylistic variation and it is difficult to determine whether the artist actually tried to 'age up' the character.
Nothing of mine has been removed since I tend to like older characters ( and I removed all my stuff that had under-age characters long ago *mostly Ichigo* )
I am to lazy to make a list of who so go here[link]
for more info
I am pretty neutral on the whole thing though I find it weird that the admins are doing there jobs all of a sudden... I am not just whining aimlessly, I really like and respect this site but a while ago I reported a shit load of stuff and most of it got ignored, (under-age-erotica, explicit-pornography, Copyright infringing stuff) Why my reports the exception DA? WHY?
But I forgive you....
This is why it is important to read the TOS when you join a site...
