Well this is fun. by Mr_Zelox_Quo

I just got a large volume of art reported and removed by staff.

This was the message:


Hello Mr_Zelox_Quo ,

Staff have decided to remove the following submissions from your gallery for multiple violations of the Community Guidelines.

SO HELP ME!
#NoLivesMatter and/or #AllLivesMatter
How to draw the CORRECT GENDER UNICORN!
This way to COMMUNISM

Flawed retoric
[{(HATE)}] Symbols
EVERYONE I DON'T LIKE IS A NAZI

The violations are:

-"Submissions should avoid expressing bigoted or hateful material (e.g. racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.) to the extent possible without compromising the artistic integrity of the piece. Material that appears intended for the sole purpose of provoking hostile responses is not permitted."

-"Threatening or harassing another user "

-"Submissions of any kind may not be used to slander, defame, or otherwise call out anyone, regardless of whether or not they are a Weasyl user."

In the future, if someone is harassing you or attempting to instigate drama with you, please do not respond.
Place the user on your ignore(block) list and send a detailed report to support@weasyl.com, so as to inform Weasyl staff of the issue. Staff will then handle to situation accordingly.

This is a warning. Further harassing behavior or misconduct will result in administrative action taken against your account.


Now moving on.
The only violations listed were as listed.

Firstly, I will point to the following -
-"Submissions should avoid expressing bigoted or hateful material (e.g. racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.) to the extent possible without compromising the artistic integrity of the piece. Material that appears intended for the sole purpose of provoking hostile responses is not permitted."

TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE ARTISTIC INTEGRITY OF THE PIECE
And
Material that appears intended for THE SOLE PURPOSE of provoking hostile responses is nor permitted.

Due to these sections, all of the artworks removed have been removed falsely.

Next -
-"Threatening or harassing another user "
The following submissions do not even contain another character of anyone, they are statements or things with only my character, and therefore it cannot be taken to be, yet again, false.
#NoLivesMatter and/or #AllLivesMatter

These pieces ONLY HAVE my character or just some artwork, so not only do they not comply with the first apparent breech of the regulations. They ALSO CANNOT be in breech of this one either.

Even though the rest of the pieces were my own characters, and therefore were not in breech of this one either, I thought I would use the most obvious example, ones where there were no other characters to demonstrate how this is flawed.

Finally -
-"Submissions of any kind may not be used to slander, defame, or otherwise call out anyone, regardless of whether or not they are a Weasyl user."

Fair enough, no parody or anything that could be taken to be a parody or political comment of other users allowed on Weasyl. I will accept that and amend the list accordingly to be pieces that DO NOT BREECH THIS OR THE OTHER TWO CONDITIONS.
SO HELP ME!

Alright. That is the list of artworks that DO NOT breech the conditions and should be reinstated by Weasyl.

I will wait for the response.

Well this is fun.

    This is some soggy shit. I remember the [{(HATE)}] Symbols one, I have it open right now, it's not provocative and it's your damn character. If anything it's just clearing up some laughable satire that people believed once. :P

    I can understand why Weasyl wants to remove even the slightest 'risky' posts, since the untold consensus here writes with their left hand. Some anti-communism post will seem funny to an outside majority, but to a misguided fellow who's fallen for the latest prog fad might get a bit hetty, that's not good for the staff.

    I've been here a while and seen this before, in fact sometimes I purposely favorite risky posts just to see how long they last. Not to bash on Weasyl staff ofc, but I like to see when people go out of their way to be offended.

    ALSO DISCLAIMER; Follow what you want, free speech and what not, no hate from me. pls no ban

      Well, apparently it didn't break the same terms of service for other art upload sites...

      Because it doesn't break the terms of service here either... really. At all.

      Heh. Anyway, thank you heaps for the comment!

      When things like this happen, it often feels like yelling at a wall. And that any kind of notice to false removal and abuse of the system will just be... ignored or not even noticed.

      So thank you for noticing at all.
