Break it down easy - Tracing EditionOver the past week, we've seen a number of wide ranging attempts within our community to detail various misinterpretations of Copyright Law in particular in relation to tracing. In order to provide clarification in this area, this article presents to you an easy break down of the guidelines which we have had in place for over 2 years, and our policies specific to this particular method of creating art.Break it down easy - Tracing Edition by fourteenthstar
First of all, let's take a moment to go over our core values.
C O M M U N I T Y
We believe that our community is our most important resource and we strive to act in ways that nurture and encourage its growth, development and ultimately its ongoing success. We err on the side of the artist.
R E S P E C T
We treat each other with respect, as we believe that every staff member, volunteer, and member is a contributing factor to deviantART's success. We acknowledge that even those that challenge our patience offer important lessons we can learn from and strive to do so.

Policy slippings?Well... I'm not one to criticize about how DeviantART is run but I am getting rather fed up of a trend I've noticed.Policy slippings? by BoyWonderRobin
There are, and I'm sure its a relatively small minority, of users who seem to enjoy posting up images depicting or highly suggestive of a sexual nature.
Its one thing to post up a picture of a nude male or female posing or to draw such an image etc, like what you might see in a life drawing class etc. To me its quite another to post up pictures that openly display the genitals in a way that is more then likely going to be viewed as sexually arousing.
Even more beyond the boundaries is to draw art that as good as suggests 'couples' doing it either consensually or without consent. I have nothing against the pairings be it m/m f/f or m/f. I just think that if I wanted to see such thing I'd go somewhere dedicated to it rather then hunt deviantART.
Another thing I've noticed is the sheer amount of people who seem to be treating DA as another photobucket or just plain Art Thie
