For those inclined, go on DeviantArt, upload a submission, and put “no deviantart points” anywhere in the description. It does this neat thing where it says ‘failed to update description’. DeviantArt is blocking submissions that include ‘no deviantart points’ in their descriptions.

Looking at the POST requests, it sends a perfectly valid post, identical to every other one that works, except it comes back as a failure from the server. Then another post is made to google analytics.

Now, all this really shows is that they are actively blocking ‘no deviantart points’ as a blacklisted phrase. The google analytics contact likely happens on every failure of any type to track when users are receiving errors, and watch for issues on the site.

However, the fact remains, deviantart is now beginning work to prevent people from taking any payment besides deviantart points on their site at all, and this is something to complain to them about.

This totally compels me to go back. Totally.

Heheh, though. dA thinking they can censor this. They’ve done a lot of censorship shit before, but this isn’t something they can do. People will find a myriad of ways to say “no deviantart points”. It’s literally impossible to censor language, unless they break down and put up a rule that you HAVE to accept points. That would totally work out… to spark a mass leave from everyone who doesn’t make stamps.

deviantART is a magical place

OMFG THIS REMINDS ME OF THE MASS BANNING OF TEEN SONIC FANS that happened some years ago.

Well actually this was the second one that happened but if I recall they both fucking happened for the same reason.

So the thing is, a few kids were DOING THIS SHIT all over the place and got reported.

Apparently these kids were popular and had TONS of friends in the fandom that were all doing the same thing.

So it looked like dA was targeting the Sonic fandom when it really was a bunch of idiots who JUST HAPPENED TO ALL BE CONNECTED IN THE SAME FANDOM and kept RPing smut on each other’s pages and even on unrelated people’s fucking deviations and shit.

It was hilarious because fucking petitions were made to get dA to “stop discriminating against sonic fans” it was great but also gross because like I said a lot of these guys were teens yeah but there were adults (and I mean ADULTS as in late 20s early 30s) doing this shit WITH TEENS so yeah.

But it was funny.

People keep coming to my dA page being like “I don’t agree with all of your stamps but” and nope sorry you’re on the shitlist regardless don’t care how cool you think I am please fuck off fuck off fuck off.
