    Recently, I got a notice, informing me that a deviation I had reported had been looked at and taken down. Since I couldn't remember reporting anything during the past few months, I took a closer look at the report.
    [​IMG]
    The times are completely accurate. Even with nearly 70 reports for the same exact thing, it still took them just a week shy of a full year to even look at it. Bravo, deviantART.

    If anyone has any similar screenshots, I'd love to see.

    I don't have any screenshots, but that's one of the major reasons why I just gave up basically on reporting. I used to be a report freak, but between the mods turning a blind eye to obvious TOS violations ("The grub going up her anus/the fingering masturbation/the significant erections TOTALLY aren't violations!" [​IMG]) and the "let's take several years to even MAYBE take action" just made me throw my hands up. If the mods don't give a crap what shit goes up in their septic tank of an "art" site, why should I?

    I know there's people I've reported a few years ago that still have galleries full of screenshots (not in Scraps); [child] pornography/yaoi shota shit; demotivators, etc., and I haven't heard anything back from them in the slightest.

    Recently I reported a dupe of some guy that have been banned in the site twice, and I'm still waiting for the answer despite I gave all the important evidences that proved its ban evasion.

    Similarly, once I tried to report rcanheta for shouting death threats on people, but I received a note from one mod saying it was "unimportant", therefore it was brushed off. And the funny thing is, they listened to fagcanheta when he falsely reported someone for spamming and the person ended banned.

    Oh gosh! The CP incident was from 2008.

    http://abornloser.deviantart.com/

    This dude was uploading real life child pornography onto DA. Every picture's artist's comments had sayings like "I WANNA FUCK HER" and "YUM YUM YUM", etc.. I unfortunately saw it and the girls on there couldn't have been older than nine or ten.

    There was a reporting crusade, and the guy got banned. The thing is, the dumbass mods left his child porn up and never wiped his gallery so it was still sitting up there for the world to see. This got reposted to an LJ snark comm (entry is friends-locked, unfortunately) and there were more reporting sprees, but the mods still kept his child porn up and took their diddly-dallying time in finally erasing it a full day later.

    There was another incident where I came across some Brazillian's lolicon picture of a young girl fingering herself (her hands were in her panties and you could clearly see the outline of her fingers in between her vulva as she blushed and drooled), and I reported it and it came back saying "dis isn't a violation herp a derp".

    Even the drama regarding that one dude who drew "cherubs"/putti--who are children--(see gallery x__x) and favourited pictures of people's kids, it's like, DA what are you doing.

    He hasn't been about in weeks and is old news. Though I AM surprised the account is still standing. Furthermore, I thought only one pic can hold one report at a time. Last time I tried doing so (art theft, but not from me) it said someone else beat me to the punch. Also, real CP? As in photos as opposed to drawings?! Putting the stuff more befitting Not4chan is negligible (albeit annoying) enough to me but I wasn't aware anyone would be that stupid!

    Yeah, the only good thing about the cherub drama is that it rid off of that creep, although the images are still up.

    Also, still regarding the same guy, I remember seeing the photo of a boy exposing his dick in the cherub creep's faves. So yeah, DA mods are stupid enough to let stuff like that around until it is reported.

    Judging by his webcam at the moment he may get a kick out of the overreactions. Or laughing his ass off due to the loophole. Not that I care apart from him having not deactivated his account.

    And Lord Raptor, you recall correctly: http://mathewlove.deviantart.com/#/djz6u1 Ugh...

    I reported a number of traced bases to put them in their correct category. I submitted them months ago and received no response.

    His drawings didn't look like cherubs though. Cherubs have wings and many of his pictures didn't :/

    Last week I reported a bunch of posers pics depicting stuff like anal sex, sodomy between lesbians with strap-ons, cunnilingus and bondage torture rape.

    And all of those only one was notified and removed.

    I remember Mathew Love and I reported his art work. It came back a day or so and they said nothing was wrong with it. I've actually had success when I report things. Though sometimes it may be a week before they deal with it and I've forgotten it by then but sometimes I've found out that if a group of people report on one thing it'll get resolved much faster, like that day or the next.

    5 minutes? I think I would die of shock if something I reported was resolved that quickly. The quickest response that I've gotten so far was yesterday/the day before when I reported one of the pics in 'dA's newest' and it was resolved a few hours later, though I'm not sure if that really counts since it was deleted by the person who uploaded it and dA didn't have to do shit about it except tell me.

    Was it that Glowstick thing? Because I got the same response like 3 hours after I reported it. I've reported several pieces in the last two weeks and that's the only one to come through.

    Glowstick? And I usually have pretty good response time with DA but that's because I think I was reporting on a piece that other people were reporting on. With pieces I know I just report myself it's resolved within a week; but I don't report that much so my stats aren't that accurate, sorry hehe.

    The one thing I remember is this art piece that got either a DD or something and it was about these naked women with slugs all around them and the foreground image was very implicitly sexual, because the slug was penetrating her and it was obviously sexual. But the mods thought it was okay because it's 'art'. That's BS to me.

    As for Mathew Love, I'm not sure if he left or what but his work is still online. Ew.

    Yes, the glowstick one.

    That's disgusting. If it outright breaks the rules and gets a DD anyway, then there's a fucking problem and whoever awarded the DD should be fired, as well as those letting it slip by.

    Just go check the DA Newest thread, you'll see.

    I like to just think that was Deviantart's bad attempt at trolling.
