Help us put a stop to "artnappers" and thieves!

Have you ever had precious artwork taken from you? Is deviantArt not doing enough to help you alone? Count on us to lend a hand; there's nothing worse than having something stolen from you, especially artwork, a.k.a. the very thing you put your heart and soul into while making it!

We can't stop all the artnappers in the world, but we can slow them down in their tracks: one thief at a time.

Much love, :iconsakuranights:

This Widget Welcomes You

ART THIEVES MUST LEAVE THIS VICINITY. NOW.

:heart:...You're not a thief? Well, then...welcome! :heart:

As many if not all of us know, there's the constant issue of art thievery around dA and basically everywhere else. How to solve this issue? The sad truth is, we can't. :iconimnothappyplz: However, we can slow down this cruel charade by hunting down as many thieves as we can! :iconimhappyplz: Justice is best served hot, with a side dish of pain and a beverage of whoop a$$! XD I digress, let's get the rules into our teeny, tiny little brains, shall we?

:iconrule1plz::iconrule2plz::iconrule3plz::iconrule4plz:

1: DON'T FLAME, SPAM, TROLL, B*TCH, AND/OR STEAL ART!!!

:bulletred:If you're caught doing any of these things, you will receive a swift boot to the head by yours truly! Lol okay, but seriously, please don't. Just... don't.

2: DON'T PUT YOUR ART IN THE WRONG FOLDERS!!!

:bulletorange:Yes. You actually submit art to this group as well. Not somebody else's art, your own. I blogged mah booty off in Youtopia about this. Please, help us out. Make our lives easy and just put them where they belong! ;A; Also, make sure to place a filter up if the art is too, well, you know, MATURE. XD Mature art is ok but only if it's tasteful, goes in the right folder and has a filter. :)

3: DON'T HARASS OR PICK FIGHTS WITH OTHERS!!!

:bulletyellow:I don't think I can reiterate this more; people, just get along. We're an alliance for a single worldwide cause! If we fall apart, who will we be representing?

4: NO FALSE ADVERTISING!!!

:bulletgreen:By this, I mean don't fake who you are. If you want to be cool, don't act it. The right people will like you. If you're a thief, get out. We will find you. We WILL find you.

5: DO YOUR PART!!!

:bulletblue:If you find a thief, tell us! We want to help as many people as we can. It's a horrible feeling, to be robbed. At least drop us a note.

6: NO FALSE ACCUSATIONS!!!

:bulletpurple:Don't report somebody just because you don't like them. Have sufficient evidence to prove that they are, in fact, stealing.

7: KNOW WHO YOU'RE INVITING!!!

:bulletpink:Sometimes it isn't easy to tell who's who between an honest to goodness user and a lowly art thief user. Before inviting ANYBODY to the group, be sure to double check the user's gallery. This means click "browse" and "scraps" to make sure you're reviewing every single piece they've posted. Suspicious? Look it up! You can never be to cautious.

:star:BUT WAIT! There's more! Read up on some more Rules/Regulations here: no-more-artnappers.deviantart.… and here: no-more-artnappers.deviantart.…:

:star::star:Need to ask a question? Have an idea to help improve our group? If we're on and you're on, come to the group chatroom! chat.deviantart.com/chat/NoMor… :star::star:

:iconrainbowllamaplz:Another thing... I give llama badges to anyone who either contributes, watches, or joins the group! Loves ya!:iconrainbowllamaplz:

We recently received a few messages from users on dA, so I'd like to take a moment to clarify this issue.


:star:Base art is NOT considered stealing.

As long as proper credit is given to the original base maker (i.e. user on deviantArt, outside web source, etc.), then it cannot be considered stealing. Users will often credit the original source in the Artist Description of their deviations. Please be on the lookout!

:star:If you are unsure, send a note to the group, and either I or the admins will take a look, and/or check your source on TinEye.com www.tineye.com/



Thanks for your cooperation!

Found one

Kingcroe9 has a lot of stolen things and I am having a hard time trying to locate any of the originals. Maybe they are not on here, but help would be nice.

I feel like I have seen this stolen image before www.deviantart.com/art/Red-dra…

xxfoxy-zeldaxx.deviantart.com/ - Using several adoptable bases and not providing credit to any of them. Has been asked by several people to credit, they ignore them and hide comments.
I asked nicely for them to credit the bases: sta.sh/0231dcqjm0lq and the comment was hidden and the reply I got was this sta.sh/02eeyvphxurt and they still haven't put proper credit to the base makers on any of their deviations where they've used a base

Ah yeah  one thing: The GerIta mpreg picture originally belongs to :iconvanillaideal: but since she deactivated her account 8but original picture is still around here) I couldn't find any other source of her.

Hey, you know how it says you can't stop thieves on the welcome widget? I think we can stop the art theft. If you can like this idea then it might cut down on all the reports we have to file. We would be able to collectively cut down on the backlog and start fighting the current policy violations on dA rather than the new ones that is so often showing up. I need as much support on this as humanly possible.

This is a very positive idea that could, in fact, really number the amount of thievery we see here. However, all the things the others were saying is also true. dA would need to hire more people (which could also be a pro, since it means more jobs for people), which would cost them money they probably aren't willing to spend.

There's also the essence of time- by the time I'm finished writing this, probably thousands of images would've been successfully uploaded to this site. I was thinking that there could be an automated system of sorts, similar to youtube's video copyright system (though I have no idea how accurate this would be); it would be able to keep up with the submissions, and probably even cut down the suggested 24 hour period. 

This is a great suggestion! Although there are some flaws, I think if dA really took this into account and worked with it, this could become a successful system to help filter out the art thefts. :)

Thank you, I know the idea isn't full proof but I think if a system like this were to be implemented and the kinks started to be worked out it would work as right as rain.
