Yes, a few stolen pics. But I had to classify it under "wrong category" because I didn't know where they got them from, just that it obviously wasn't theirs.

most of the deviations I've had to report have been ripoffs of my own artwork :(

one time, yes it was sexually explicit, but i reported it because it was a horribly drawn piece of furry work, and I felt like it.

I voted for choice "F" because their is no way I can report a deviant (so far). I can critique though and that is all that should be done.

I've reported stolen art, screen caps and offensive material. I mostly report motivational posters when I see them.

I think I should report more often, though. :/

If you take a sceenshot, picture from manga etc. use someone else's work in it, then yes, it's agains the rules.
But if you draw/paint/take a photo by yourself, it isn't. :)

So about 95% of the motivational posters here are against the rules.

Well, I was going to report someone who had traced over an artwork of yours but I told you about it first and you seemed to solve it out yourself (Do you remember this? ><')... Otherwise I would have reported it, stolen art is not acceptable. =3=*

I havent yet, but I will if I find anyone stealing someone else work or my. I hate people who do that. It is hard enough to produce good - original work for someone to come along and steal it or manipulated, etc.

Nah...I'd only ever report something if I thought is was a stolen peace of original artwork...and by original I mean not fanart of any kind! If its fan art then I think you shouldn't be such a cry baby about someone liking the way you draw characters of a show/book/anime/other you both obviously like. I mean so what if they color you line art or sketch...just think about how the original artist of whatever you'd drew fanart for feels...probably happy they have fans!...perhaps you should feel that way too! ...Though...I DO think they SHOULD state that they colored someone else's work and provide a link to the original work!

Done all of it, though it helps that I patrol in the DA's Complaint forum. It is popular their to post art violating the rules and rant about it, though it is not much appreciated by the regulars. :XD: I keep a cache in my notes for cases that I was sure violated the rules yet still passed inspection. It really takes awhile for some violations to go through (screenshots) but others not so much (underage erotica and porn).

I chose "other" because I almost reported somebody... but I decided to do the nice thing and approach them personally (because they made a "tribute" to one of my pieces, which happened to be a total reproduction of it)... they were nice and took it down so no need to get nasty.

How about you then??? HMMMMMM??? :icongoodrageplz:

Yes,several times;
Atleast 10 trolls,
3 stolen artworks(one very recent)
... And a few child porn i've came accross while searching something compleatly different that would never be relevent to the porn.
proves how people do not read the rules
stunning how even more is around on DA than is delt with, and how even less is actually removed.

nothing ever really gets done about violators..

i hate feeling like a narc anyway. and people will just continue to do it anyway.

for example, i came across a VERY sexually explicit photo, not censored at all, with the artist comment being "DA can't ban me! i have 9 accounts!!" or something along those lines.

and art stealers and such. it's sad.

I voted Nah not too long ago, but right after I found a deviation that had been manipulated and posted as new. Needless to say, this manipulated deviation definately did not belong to this person.
Sucks for them that I happened to come across their falsified works. I deviantwatch the person who posted the originals!
I hate when people do that. And the fact that they acted like the model in the picture was them!? >:C Disgraceful!

stolen arts, tracing, recolors, color overs, photomanipulations, screenshots,... these kinds of copyrights violating images.
Mature content only rarely, when itīs really really disgusting
