According to older users, the 403 error began appearing some time within the year 2022 and have prevented new users and some old users access to the website. This was resolved by editing the hosts file afterwards, yet it has begun occurring again since 2023.9.23 and it's confirmed by multiple users in the People's Republic of China. The error message...

DeviantArt Divination submission blocking

Recently I have had to tell your algarythem to flag multiple devinations and deviants that have tos violations. These violations are advertisements for sexual acts. I have been flooded with these devinations and I know I have not searched for these things off deviantart. They advertise call girls and escorts, these two are usually associated with adult areas that are beyond the permitted adult theme that deviantart tos permits.

Desired outcome: Remove and ban all accounts/devinations that advertise escorts and call girls.

DeviantArt Why is there a "This Century" option instead of "Most Popular" option?

This makes it far more difficult for me to find the art and/or stories I'm trying to look for, and when I typed something like "Alastor", I kept finding irrelevant/off-topic deviations all because of the " This Century" option becoming default (I know the search in the picture I took isn't an Alastor TF search, since I typed "Pyroraptor Transformation" and yet it showed me irrelevant scaly dinosaur transformations, but it just shows how broken the "This Century" option is). Can you please get rid of the "This Century" option? It would be greatly appreciated.

Desired outcome: Without the "This Century" option, we could find relevant art/stories much more easily and not have to see off-topic deviations.

Is DeviantArt Legit?

DeviantArt earns a trustworthiness rating of 91%

Highly recommended, but caution will not hurt.

Our conclusion: After a detailed review, ComplaintsBoard finds DeviantArt to be a trustworthy company. Although there's a 11% resolution rate for customer complaints, which deserves attention, DeviantArt is known for their high standards and safety. If you're thinking about dealing with DeviantArt, it's wise to check how they handle complaints.

A long registered date for deviantart.com can be seen as a positive aspect for DeviantArt as it indicates a commitment to maintaining the website and its domain name for a long period of time. It also suggests that the company is organized and has taken steps to secure its online presence.

The age of DeviantArt's domain suggests that they have had sufficient time to establish a reputation as a reliable source of information and services. This can provide reassurance to potential customers seeking quality products or services.

Deviantart.com has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

DeviantArt's website appears to be focused on art and entertainment. While this can be a great source for finding creative inspiration, it's important to verify the legitimacy of the site and its content before investing time or money. However, it's important to take the time to research the site and verify its legitimacy before making any purchases or investments.

We looked up DeviantArt and found that the website is receiving a high amount of traffic. This could be a sign of a popular and trustworthy website, but it is still important to exercise caution and verify the legitimacy of the site before sharing any personal or financial information

Adult content may be available on deviantart.com. It is important to be aware of potential risks and to use caution when accessing or engaging with such content.

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • While DeviantArt has a high level of trust, our investigation has revealed that the company's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. As a result, only 11% of 9 complaints are resolved. The support team may have poor customer service skills, lack of training, or not be well-equipped to handle customer complaints.
  • DeviantArt protects their ownership data, a common and legal practice. However, from our perspective, this lack of transparency can impede trust and accountability, which are essential for establishing a credible and respected business entity.

DeviantArt Termination Threats and F-Bombs

While I was on DeviantArt, Orionlogan wrote "you will be terminated" and "[censored] you" to my profile (which contains a profile photo of Lori Loud). I am so sick of his termination threats and F-Bombs. I should definitely ask the DeviantArt support team to give Orionlogan a strike for writing termination threats and F-Bombs to my profile. If Orionlogan does get 3 strikes for writing termination threats and F-Bombs to my profile, he'll be banned from DeviantArt.

DeviantArt Godawful garbage

I was on DeviantArt, commenting on MrYoshi1996's account (as LoriLoud99) (about Lady Lovely Locks and Luz Noceda) until I saw the godawful "Sorry, you are unable to view this content" and "You are not authorized to access this page" garbage. Just get rid of the godawful "Sorry, you are unable to view this content" and "You are not authorized to access this page" garbage. I am allowed to view this content. Replace "You are not authorized to access this page" with "Deactivated account". Take away the godawful "You are not authorized to access this page" garbage.

DeviantArt poor enforcement of copyright policy/banning infringing users

Deviantart has decided that a user named Nads6969, aka Nadia Stepputat, can keep her account despite having 11 DMCA notices filed against her when users are supposed to be banned after receiving 3 DMCA notices. For 13 years, this middle-aged stay-at-home jobless chunk has traced the artwork of people young enough to be her children. Even worse - she has stopped asking permission/giving credit to the people she traces from, effectively passing their work off as her own. People have complained, asked her to stop, but she ignores them. Her victims have filed reports against her to the Help Desk, but have been told that "no action will be taken" against her account. Specifically, Kietz has refused to do his job and ban her account, which should have been banned 8 DMCA reports ago. Not sure if there's bribery going on or what, but it is ridiculous that we can't even trust our site admins to enforce copyright policy to help us protect ourselves when civil discourse is not possible.

DeviantArt Awful community

It's a horrible place for those who are looking for friends, and it's a wonderful place if we speak about its idea.
I've seen several reviews and unfortunately, I have to agree with them. Users on this website are really mean and never support each other. Why would they be so terrible? I don't know. Very strange.
The website blocks those who protect themselves from internet trolls, but the trolls never get blocked. Where's the logic when we need it so much?

The company www.deviantart.com knew my card information, because I gave this information, when I bought some stuff from them. I didn’t think that the website would start to scam me. I checked my account recently and was surprised to see a lot of different small charges. The company made them, but the rep refused to confirm this information and provide any reply. Be careful with this people and help me to stop these charges.

DeviantArt Beware

I found really cool art on the website www.deviantart.com, but you need to be careful on this website, because I think it isn’t secure. I downloaded free image and a lot of junk programmes were saved on my computer. I found many viruses and spent a lot of time in order to find and delete them. Please leave comments about this website, because people should be aware when they download something for free.

deviantart scans pictures when they are put up for viruses, if you need to go to another site to download it [some artists have a higher resolution stored elsewhere] then your open to getting viruses. though they maybe already on your computer.

I am so sick of the "your comment failed to post" [censored]. I will never try again. Get rid of the "failed" crap. This needs to stop. Get my comment back on DeviantArt or else.

I am so sick of the "We're sorry, but you cannot post a comment here" [censored] on DeviantArt. Stop with the "you cannot post a comment here" crap. "Cannot" IS NO LONGER AN ANSWER. "Sorry" IS NO LONGER AN ANSWER. They deserve to have their [censored]es thrown in jail for violating the policy of getting my comment posted here on DeviantArt successfully or else.
