Because apparently it needs it. 
Stop harassing the admins, particularly realitysquared. Seriously. 
Yeah, you may be mad about it but knock it off. 
Going off and being a jerk to someone isn't going to solve the problem at all. So please, stop it. 
Don't spam his page and call him names. 
Sure, I don't really like him either but there's no reason to go apeshit at him. 
He's not going to give you the time of day, trust me. And if he does chances are you won't like what he has to say anyway.
There's other admins to talk to who would most likely be willing to actually listen and talk back. 

In light of that, the fact that an admin actually did come forth and display some interest in the subject [fourteenthstar] is kind of interesting, and according to her she'll be talking to the other side mods and staff about the situation with theft. You can read the conversation(s) with her here -- comments.deviantart.com/1/4273… and share your own voice in the conversation as well. 
If you are really concerned with what is going on you can try to contact the admins and share your opinions CIVILLY with them. At this point some may be willing to listen. 


As far as my boycott goes I am still standing on it and even though I'm on here to post this I'm not coming back until the 17th of next month regardless. 
There is a reason I'm not asking others to do this boycott with me. I'd sooner give people the opportunity to choose for themselves rather than have someone banter them into participating in something that may very well be met with a moot point of conclusion. 

In light of the fact that Furaffinity has it's own demons to slay as far as drama goes I probably won't be active on there either. 
If you're looking for updates or anything I'll be on Tumblr and while I won't post art that often I'll be around. Commissions (as you can imagine) will not be reopened until after the 16th of February. I didn't foresee this coming when I posted the pricing list so, sorry about that. 

Again, stop posting hate and drama on that guy's page, it's not going to solve anything. It's one thing to express your views or even concerns about his way of running things but I've been told a lot of people are just being flat out mean and caustic toward him with insults and the like. 
You're slamming someone for not doing their job and yet you're going to toss insults at them as if you're going to seem the bigger person? Come on now, don't be like that? 
For the time being let the admins discuss what is going on. By now it's become a 'thing' and apparently it's enough to get some kind of recognition from them. I don't take any credit since I was merely reposting someone else's information and story. I am glad that there's some kind of response from the admins and staff, that's something promising. HOWEVER, I don't dare hold my breath because we've heard the schpeel before about policies being changed and fixed. 
I'll await the changes for when they're put into action rather than words. 

For now I'm going to enjoy some down time before I get back to work on art. I'm not looking at it as some kind of disappearing act but rather just time off until the storm subsides. Right now it seems dA and a few other places are having troubles and I while I said my piece on it I'm at peace with and just want to take some time off. 
Perhaps it was a little less clear that I was not mad, and I'm not. Disappointed greatly but not mad. There's not sense to be mad about it since it's to be expected. However, the way it has been handled is still not acceptable and that is what was the initial nail in the coffin for this leave of absence. Given that there's been contact (voluntary contact mind you) from a site staff member with actual concern and conversation, that gives me hope this isn't the end. But again, I'm not holding my breath. 

To those who chose to drown out the real reason for the upset with stating copyright law and all that. I am well aware of copyright law, I had to study it. This wasn't about just one law (even if dA should follow the law) it's about this site upholding it's own rules and regulations; copyright law included. So I am well aware that there's no proof positive way to stop this epidemic of theft on the internet. What I am not fond of is the fact an art website doesn't try harder to do just a bit more to deter theft of it's member's works from outside users. Not to mention the fact the way internal affairs of theft/tracing are dealt with. 
That was the main issues here. 

Lastly, I'm not the one whose work was stolen so please don't think that journal was my personal beef with the situation. I did state my opinion on the matter but that was all it was. While my work has been stolen more times than I can count or remember at this point, this wasn't about me. So please, I remind you that I was spreading the news of someone else's plight and situation. Not mine personally. 


That all said....
I wish you all luck, safety, and greatness. Good luck admins with keeping your word and also with making this place a better place to be a part of in the future. 
Take care guys, 
-Kato

PS: any further contact (if you're interested) can be made via Tumblr if you have it, otherwise I'm sorry but I won't be checking back here for a while. So, if I don't answer I am sorry but now you know why. 
If you do contact me through Tumblr DON'T be a jerk and send me hate mail. It's not funny nor amusing.



NEW!
Find me on Weasyl -- www.weasyl.com/~ninjakato I will be more active there with new art as well as on Tumblr!

Ugh. I've had enough of the all the drama YOU are causing.
You are a really popular artist with gazillion Watchers, so you should know that a portion of those gazillion Watchers include immature little children. Making rant Journal after rant Journal is only gonna make those immature kiddies go on a crusade to defend you and fight the "nasty villains".
You complain about so much drama on dA - which I honestly never have stumbled across - but don't you realise you're one to blame for it?

I love your gorgeous art, but I will have to uncheck your Journal box because this is becoming ridiculous.

And I hope you have a good time in Weasyl. :)
Take all the time you need to rest, and don't feel you have to come back to dA if it's stressing you too much.


*incoming rant*

I really wish children under the age of 16 get limited usage of the Internet because it's becoming a serious problem globally.
Immature kiddies do immature stuff, and other immature kiddies copy those annoying deeds, and then they become so many that the admins don't bother with them any more. And then the immature kiddies have it their way while the mature people - children and adults alike - have to suffer their annoying presence and destroyed peace.
With the Internet becoming more and more available to just about anybody who can communicate with words, kids who don't even know real life rules are invading sites everywhere to the point where there has got to be a restriction on what they can and can't do/write/post. What makes me mad is that usually the parents of these kids don't know or care about what their child is doing on the Internet because they know too little about Internet and computers, thinking it's just a upgraded version of a DS or something.
Call me a gnarly granny all you like, but when we ("we" as in people in their mid-20's and older), we didn't have mobile phones and Internet, and many of us had restrictions to video games. We played outside with real children and learned communication, manners, and rules with each other. We didn't have free access to the entire world where you can Google anything, get free pr0nz, call people names and not be scolded, stealing other people's hard work and claim it as yours or even worse, make money off it, etc etc.
Not saying kids should be banned from the Netz; just sayin' they should have a restriction and a careful eye from the parents about what they do, just like how when we were kids our parents made sure we were behaving and not spending too much time on video games etc. Also, SCHOOLS must teach the children FROM 1st GRADE how to use the Internet properly. Some of these kids' bad behaviours can be blamed on the lack of teaching from their adults and seniors.

The reason it's probably so awful here now is that the majority of users aren't taken seriously because of this exact issue. None can handle even the slightest bit of controversy with grace, and it is astounding.
Things might be a little different here if these kids could grow up a bit, and act as if they were online talking to strangers, and give a little respect and be decent, even when/if they;

a. Don't like the person.
b. Disagree with their opinions, or how they are handling things.
c. Think the person may have committed some type of theft.

It's not that hard to be a decent human being, but I guess because either many of these people's frontal lobes and brains in general are still developing in general, or just because they don't think before they act, they aren't taken as seriously by staff here, and in turn staff can get lazy, even negligent when it comes to tickets, as serious as they may be. 
Maybe if people could maturely state their opinions or concerns more often than childish remarks, and resorting to name calling, we'd get more done in less time, instead of all this. 

Nonetheless, it's good that you've brought it to the forefront, Kato. I've always respected you a great deal, as well as your level head. You have always managed to handle your issues with maturity; hopefully, people will take from your example, and we can get this site turned around.

no. If you're talking about realitysquared that's a admin. Basically what happened was someone reported a deviation, the admin made a decision about the report, the person that made the report wasn't happy with the decision and decided to post about it on tumblr. Now a bunch of people on DA including NinjaKato have re-posted the information. The result was that people are now bullying the admins to try and get their point across. Some have deliberately traced the admins works but for the most part it's just a bunch of posts of people that are convinced the admins decision was wrong and trying to force that view onto the admin.

copyright law allows in some instances the use of another person's work without their explicit permission. i'm sure the admin's decision was based on that law. furthermore, it is questionable if the artist who filed the report is the copyright owner. she might not have been entitled to file a dmca takedown request in the first place.

True. You have a point. But do you think that law even should be even there? In my opinion I believe you should only use material from someone on this site if give permission. I know that some people use things they find and use it a reference, I do but the first person who made that drawing should be given credit for it.

if people don't like the laws, they should complain to the government, and not bash some admins. or do you mean that deviantart should forbid it, although law allows it?

giving credit is surely a nice thing, but law does not deal with nice things. law does not require crediting.

You have a point ;) but that's not what I'm saying :( I'm saying copyright infringement is part of the law but people continue to steal art, and some admins do nothing or hardly anything about it. You know? I mean there are some who do but that usually isn't the case.
Reply
:iconhans-sachs:
hans-sachs Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014
i see what you mean. it's just so that only the copyright holder can file a valid dmca takedown request. if the copyright holder doesn't know that their work has been stolen, they cannot file such a request.

years ago everyone could report stuff for "permission issues", staff looked into it, and if they thought that it might be "stolen" they removed it. it took maybe a week or so, until the stuff was gone. the possibility to report for "permission issues" is still there, but in my humble opinion it has become more or less useless and a waste of time. deviantart became more professional by not accepting reports by any tom, dick or harry, but this has drawbacks.

but that's not only da's problem, it's a problem of the internet in general. just look at photobucket, facebook, or especially the by some people recommended tumblr: copyright infringement galore.

Emberguard Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2014   General Artist
As far as what everyones verbally bashing the admin about, it's all got to do with peoples personal opinions of the copyright laws as well as DAs polices. The report was about a mlp fanart piece that looks like it got traced as there was a second image on DA in the exact same pose. The admins decision was to allow the piece to stay up, the person reporting wasn't happy with that decision. A lot of people feel the same way.

 The reason the admin came to the conclusion he did is that poses are unable to be copyrighted, same with ideas. So really this was a case that could have been in favor of both the reporter and the reported depending on who's dealing with the case at the time.

 The accused image itself had several differences to the one that is being called the original, the only thing that was same was the pose, almost like the original had been used as a base for the second image as they are both the same canvas size. I've got to say it does look like it very well could have been traced, BUT the copyright law being as it is, to some extent fan artists can't complain that their work was stolen and have legal action on their side. Unfortunately fan art automatically doesn't belong to them but rather whichever company owns the trademark of whatever the fanart is about. There's been a few cases where companies have been able to take fanart that got a little too popular and use it without compensating the artist because legally they already own the copyright to anything that is made with their characters. That and there's also the fair use act to factor in. It could be argued that the image was within the fair use boundaries, and in the end regardless of DAs policies, business policy can never trump the law. 

 
 As to the current situation, I think I read that the reported image was taken down by the poster voluntarily. No admin action was needed. So hopefully the debate will cool down quickly.

I agree with what you're saying. But if there's any copyright infringement at all it's the staffs job to handle it, which he did not. And If it was the work of that deviant that was stolen it makes the situation worse. I hope things get better soon, otherwise a lot of people will be leaving DA. Most of them permanently.

The biggest problem is that even if it was stolen and it very much looks like it was, it's still fanart. Without personal permission from the company to produce fanart, the artists rights to any fanart are limited if not non-existant. I wish they weren't, I love looking at fanart, but that's just how it is.

With luck action will be taken and they won't give a wall of words that hold no weight. However I believe, from what I've heard, it is not only RealitySquared who has been acting in such a way. Instead it is quite a few admins that people have sent in reports for and have been brushed off in a similar fashion. It is terrible that this admin has received so much hate. Their way of dealing with things was not rude or anything, just simply unprofessional.

Could it help to make your point to a greater degree if someone else were to compile several tickets (ones answered by several different staff members) in a journal and explain/show how said tickets display the poor way devinatart staff is going about issues? Even if devinatart staff is already looking into the issue now, this could help.

Whatever the outcome I think the group AgentWhiteHawk had the idea about should still be put into practice if it can. If the admins do change then that would be a place for them to browse as well. It also helps people become aware of art theft sooner so they can send in a report.

Anyways, enjoy your downtime Kato!

Something needs to be done, but a lot of people don't realize ranting is just going to make things worse. So me an a couple of friends are going to write to DA. Try and get a good number of reports that are expressing concerns, not hatred. Though I am very pleased to hear that it looks like some progress is being made and that DA staff are going to do something about this.

I agree. Attacking him will not solve anything. And will most likely result in bans, if some people go too far, which some of them probably will or already have. I'm trying to stay off that page myself. 

Let's be realistic here- YES we all know tracing is wrong. Most of us agree with that statement. But the only way someone is going to get into serious trouble over it is if they make a large profit from tracing someone else's work, and the creator of that work actually buys or owns a copyright (Yes. A copyright is something you have to actually pay for, from what I understand.) and takes legal action against them. The original artist only asked the admin in question for clarification, not for all of this to be started. And it's not going to change anything by going on his page and saying all kinds of mean stuff to him. That's only going to make more problems for everyone. 

It does make me happy to see that the other admins are taking some kind of action about this issue, at the very least. It surprised me in a good way. Now if they would just do something about the fact that one of their admins is stealing art on a regular basis (or at least not citing proper credit for their resources) and being extremely biased, everything would be as it should be.

Well you should know how deviantArt members are.  lol  They see a journal, of someone whom they like, issuing forth with all manner of frustrations and anger, and they decide "oh dear oh dear!  I must be the knight in shining armor, and go forth to punish the horrible, malignant, evil person who made my favorite artist/friend feel all baddy-poos!"

Yeah...because that's precisely how deviantArt members, for a larger part, roll.  Gang bullying, trolling, shaming, and general abuse.  So it's not just certain (or a certain percentage) of admins and staffers who are the problem in this stupid community.  Nope.  They're just one facet of a much larger problem...the "monster" I mentioned in another related journal of yours.

Have fun cooling off, dude.  But I think you probably already realize that, when you return here, nothing will have changed.  dA has become what it has become.

I'm not harassing anyone but I did state my opinion on my journal saying I think the rule was unfair and they should change it. All I can hope is they get enough complaints to really think about tweaking the tracing issue. They don't have to necessarily have to get rid of it. However people need to learn the difference between sending in a formal complaint and pure harassment. Nothing will get solved with hateful words and an immature approach. Things may not change, but who knows. Still, if you're mad, don't act like an immature troll or cyber-bully. That's just my two cents.

But I guess from dealing with some trolls and thieves myself and awesome people like NinjaKato telling me not to go all ape on these people, That I've learned that the only way to get rid of them is civilly, and with an easy click of a report button or something.

Well, you've been to realitysquared's profile page and commented.  And, like many of us, you've probably browsed many of the comments left there.  They've run the gamut...from civil, to frustrated, to angry, to rude, to profane, to threatening, to downright childish (all but the first type being ever-so-common in the behavior patterns of the great majority of dA members, quite frankly). 

Just a recent scanning, of the first several pages of comments left on the admin's profile have shown that the following members abandoned all semblance of maturity, civility and intelligence with their moronic, childish, and incendiary bull (the last one listed below deserves the grand bull moose award for showing all the intelligence and composure of a bratty toddler who didn't get his favorite cookie when he wanted it):


Piano-Be1t

xXForensicXArtistXx  (frankly I will never get that whole "xX" trend; looks stupid to me)

Roasted-Torkoals

theresacantdraw

theresacantdraw

nissandriver217


And I am pretty sure there's a plethora of other base, petty and disgusting garbage which has been posted on this admin's profile page.  No doubts there.  Gotta love this community for the exemplary behavioral trends of its members, hmm?  Roll Eyes

Not that I am defending or excusing the admin's previous behavior or any of his apparently boneheaded decisions or adjudications.  He obviously is a part of a much larger problem in terms of staff reticence and inefficiency.  And appears to have quite the crass little chip on his shoulder.  Not all that uncommon in internet communities either...especially among those who staff or otherwise moderate communities (forums, chats, etc.) - whether they are paid or not.

I don't agree with harassing those users as blatantly as you have that posted such comments, i'm sure thousands of people have gone through themselves already. I'm sorry but I find that childish as well :/ And your snark comments like " (frankly I will never get that whole "xX" trend; looks stupid to me)" is just adding to the list of your hypocritical comments. There's really no need to act that way yourself and I realize you probably won't listen to what I have to say but I'm making my opinion as well ~

Further, Briezy, my calling out selfish, obnoxious, crude, profane and childish brats (regardless of how old they are) is absolutely nothing like the garbage they have posted in harassing that admin and anyone who agrees with or defends him (no matter how wrong he may have been in his administrative duties).  Do not lump me in with those idiots.

And as to your finger-wagging at me?  I'll just say this:


white knighting = false piety = sanctimony = total irrelevancy


Done now.  Not interested in further replies.  I've had enough of one immature little girl trying to play the "last-word" flame bait game.  And cutting her off was how to deal with that.  So take the hint.

People have opinions.  And an opinion of foolish and aggressive and childish behavior is far more valid than either that SORT of behavior, or pointless and irrelevant white knighting, which you are doing.  Wishy-washiness never got anyone anywhere but running in circles while they think their finger-wagging comments carry any weight.  I "listened" (actually, I read), and I dismissed it.  lol
