Thank you so much for the help, I was wondering how to do so since this girl is telling me that my art is horrible and telling others the same thing as well x-x we cant all be professionals....But I feel like bleh because she told me that :u I practice I do but she put me in a bad mood.
When I reported a deviant, I used screenshots from my notes. That deviant was banned. Because this process took place quite some time ago, I'm not sure if screenshots are still acceptable. I would recommend blocking the deviant and attempting to file a report using screenshots. FAQ #96:Can I block people from my profile page? If the deviant creates new accounts in order to contact you then add this to your report as it is considered harassment.
This tutorial was extremely helpful. I just received some very insulting comments and had no idea how to report them and have them banned. The help desk hasn't answered yet, but thank you nonetheless for taking the time to make this tutorial.
Sorry to say this is outdated! If you have not already done so please gather and provide URL links to each issue which you wish to bring to the attention of the deviantART staff.
If your Abuse Report lacks supporting evidence and information at the time a member of deviantART Customer Service opens your support ticket you will be asked to provide it and your ticket will be placed back into the queue. Please do not provide screenshots because we do not accept them in these matters; you should provide only actual URL links which will allow a Customer Service Representative to look at the problem directly.
If you are unfamiliar with how to create specific links please refer to the FAQ entry which we have made available here [link]
If this matter concerns your own deviantART profile you may find that use of your Blocking tool may assist you in managing the problem until a Customer Service Representative can review your Abuse Report. Our FAQ contains instructions on this tool here [link]
Maybe it depends on the specific case? I am unsure if other deviants reported the person who was bothering me.
I appreciate your interest but I don't really have plans to mess around with the tutorial further. Even if dA does not accept screenshots as evidence in the majority of cases, I still feel reports should be made for abusive notes. Maybe if the Help Desk gets enough reports like that they will reconsider leaving deviants 'to the wolves' when it comes to private notes. And, like I said, I do mention the importance of linking to abusive comments. Overall, I feel the tutorial covers what it was meant to.
No problem. You are free to link the tutorial or just make a similar one. I don't own the idea of telling people how to report deviants for harassment.
Since, in my case, the majority of the harassment was being done by note, this left me fairly helpless.
That's unfortunate. I had actually heard this from another random deviant after filing the report. The abuse report I filed did deal with a private note and the deviant's profile was still banned. I suppose they might have had another reason for doing so but the admin didn't say anything about a note not being sufficient to me.
Wow, you were so lucky. This makes me wonder if it is actually a DA policy, or whether it was just a lack of interest in responding to my case by a particular admin. I guess it's a good question for me to file away for one of those "Ask the Admin" chats they throw every so once in awhile. I'd be really interested to know what the actual policy is.
Yes, me too! I just have this one case of mine to go by. I've just filed this one abuse report. I'm not sure if the policy has recently changed, the deviant was banned for another reason or your admin wasn't invested in your case...
