Know and enforce the rules by TheKingofTheBeavers Know and enforce the rules by TheKingofTheBeavers
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.

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.

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:

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.

I know a good deal of people who've had pictures deleted for far less than dA's porn policy and it was still deleted for being 'porn.' I think that's more of the reason why people do that, you know trying to keep dA to follow it's own rules or implement the ones they have floating off in space somewhere.

Yeah, I understand. However, a picture could clearly break the rules and not get taken down due to the ideals of the administrator that handled your report.

I saw a picture once, where a woman had pretty much, half her hand up her vag. I reported it, but it wasn't taken down. I reported it again, finally, it was taken care of. I've had many other cases like this. Maybe it was a slip of the mouse?

People seem to have a very skewed perception of porn around here.

Porn = Sex last time a checked, and yet all I ever see if people screaming about pictures of kissing or what-have-you.

There is a BIG line between suggestive and Porn... and people seem to be too stuck in their butts to realize that o____o

It's hard to know with all these perverts who like to stretch the rules just far enough to the point that it would be porn but is missing the criteria you mentioned. Then on top of it, they don't put a filter on it.
Reply
:iconthekingofthebeavers:
TheKingofTheBeavers Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011
If it's missing the criteria, then dA won't consider it porn. You may see it as porn personally, or may find it offensive... but that does not mean the staff will agree. Although, admittedly they have been a bit slack on the policy lately.

If it needs a filter, report it for needing a mature filter, not for being porn.

I-am-Britta Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, that's true... unfortunate, but true. I do report stuff for needing a filter but often times, they do nothing. It's pretty ridiculous. Thankfully I haven't run across anything explicitly pornographic, and I've only reported a couple things as such mainly because they were borderline to the point that I couldn't tell.

I don't care about whether its porn or not, I just want the damned filter to be put on. Do you know how much art I report because it didn't have the mature content filter on? I do the same with gore too, so its not just stuff that's sexually explicit. If I see no filter, it's getting reported.

Yep. Proper use of the filter is a part of the rules as well. :nod:

Thing is, I do know the limitations and I do only report those specific kinds of pictures.

I either get ignored or told that it doesn't count according to the rules. Every single time.

So now I ignore it and go after the motivationals instead.

Well if they fit the description, then that's just bad modding on their part and not your fault.

But all the time I see members of the "rage" groups (ones that I am a part of and support) report things and go after people who aren't uploading anything that contains what dA considers porn. It may be distasteful. It may be slutty. They may not like it for good reason... but reporting it is a waste of everyones time.

Oh, I know it's not my fault.

And the idea of porn doesn't really bother me all that much, it's something I enjoy, what bothers me is dA's unwillingness/inability to enforce their own rules properly.
