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!

Hello everyone. Meet Cocolinkaa :iconcocolinkaa:

The whole new level of Art Theft...? [UPDATE]UPDATE 2:
Now all comments on :iconCocolinkaa: 's profile and gallery are disabled so no one can read.
She shows no willingness to change. Can't accept critics, can't accept help.
Art thieves need to understand people won't forget and won't forgive unless they apologize.
UPDATE:
So foreign artists would like to know how it ended I guess...
Facebook fanpage and YouTube were deleted.
She apologized the author of original painting very poorly.
And you know what's the worst? She tired to make herself a victim.
Everyone who called her "thief" was immediately blocked. 
What she exactly said? Of couse I can't give you the exact quote because...
Yes. The apologize video and her posts were deleted.
Not only she didn't say what was the reason she also started crying, calling others bullies and telling her career is ruined...
Of course it is. SHE ruined it by doing stupid things.
That wasn't the first time tho. She built that career not on her skil

It seems dA has changed how deviation reports are filed (I'm guessing from the huge amount of deviations and work that they have to wade through on a daily basis). Does your friend know about this? Have her contact dA with the "report" button, and link the traced image to them.
