Hey there Hi there Ho there!
This keeps happening, so I feel I need to make a journal to help people out.
Lately, DA has been banning/suspending accounts due to apparent "sexual roleplaying." Deviantart is a place for artists, by artists with a variety of people who are members and who visit. DA does not like nor appreciate "sexual RP" on these accounts. Keep in mind, there are people who are members here and visit here, who are a variety of ages - from Grandparents to young kids. Keep in mind, these comments are public and can detract from not only the artwork, but also this website.
This is not me saying "shame on you" everyone's different and I'm not going to judge. I think the idea is the publicity of these comments. Some of these fandoms were not originally created to be mature therefore, younger people are going to be viewing this art - and whose parents would not appreciate them seeing these things. Do you see where I'm going with this? The whole idea, I think, is DA trying to prevent "corruption of young and innocent minds." Comments can't have the "mature content" filter put on - though images can.
All this to say, I think DA would like people to stop RPing on this website in the public comments.....it makes them look like a dirty website when they're here for art and artists of ALL kinds.
So here's what CAN be done:
1) Don't start sexual RPing in public comments (prevention is the fastest way to prevent issues from even happening)
2) If you were banned or your account was suspended, DON'T create a second account to get around the ban (DA specifically says this won't gain you any favours when trying to get your old account back - and CAN result in the new account being suspended)
3) If you are serious about fixing the issue and won't do it again, appeal to DA (and be polite): FAQ #221: I was banned, is there anything I can do?
4) Understand that there are rules for a reason, this protects us, it protects you, it protects DA, and it protects those who visit. Just be kind, understanding, and of course reasonable
Have fun out there, Happy Holidays and stay safe!
