BANNING ISSUE

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 31, 2006, 10:38 PM
BANNING ISSUE

PLEASE DO NOT FAV IN THE CLUB'S GALLERY
DA prohibits clubs from having too many favs.

It has come to my attention that many clubs out there are being banned for the abuse of the Favorites System FAQ #295: What exactly is an "Abuse or Exploit of the System"?
more specifically these rules:

• Any standard deviantART account which is used as a "group" account, or a "club" of any sort, is prohibited from using the Favorites system to 'collect' the deviations of their own 'membership'. Any deviation which is to be associated with this kind of "group" or "club" account should be submitted by the standard submission process and not added to the Favorites Listing of the account.

• It is also considered an exploit of the system to deliberately orchestrate a large group of users with the express purpose of placing a specific deviation into the Daily Top Favorites System  rankings. Those who participate in this sort of DTF manipulation may be punished by administrative action.


Sadly enough, it's happened to a few clubs I really enjoyed! It's an issue that many deviants may not be aware of. I thought it best you all should know about 'em.

yeah an organization club I'm in pissed me off with that-I sent in a dev then later on another-they updated their gallery so I went to look at people's stuff and didn't see mine in there-I re-sent them incase they didn't make it through-same thing happened again-I looked through their favs and it turned that all they did was just fav my pics and not submit them to the gallery -_-

that's a messed up thing to do especially if you're a member. I'm practically afraid to fav too much, just so the club doesn't get in trouble. & I know for a fact, clubs are not allowed to fav their own member's deviations.

I've never heard of those rules! I should probably go warn the other clubs I'm in...^^;

yeah, that's a good idea, the only reason I found that out in the first place was because a few clubs I was in got banned from DA. so sad :cry: cuz I really loved those clubs.

Ah. I don't think that'll be a problem with us; so far, I didn't notice anybody faving the works through the club.

Good to know though. :D
