Don't report people constantly. Ask them to stop or block them first. Abuse reports should only be filed after these other measures have been exhausted.

But I'm glad you found this helpful!

Not sure if that is grounds for an abuse report. Have you tried blocking her or telling her that you don't want crit?

How do I report notes?? It says that they won't take she shots of evidence of harassment? Do I include my password in the support ticket or what?

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.

Thanks. ^^
I know this person isn't coming back though because she blocked me first.
It's because I was friends with someone she didn't like.
And I would let this go if she didn't cuss me out.

But i'm just gonna' report her so I can have peace of mind and what happens happens. ^^

Sorry for dumping my problems onto you. :huggle:

No worries. I wouldn't expect dA to do much about it though, if both of you have blocked each other.

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Sorry to say this is outdated!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]

I've got a note about linking to comments.

I'm not sure about the official policy on using screenshots as evidence. I included screenshots in a report and the deviant was banned.

It's what I was sent when I created a report last night... it seems dA has again changed policies and Not notified users (such as IN the FAQ's you list to addendum your lovely deviation).

Maybe it'll cut down on the reports they have to sake seriously before they can go off and celebrate family and holidays. No clues.

I can screenshot the Email for you and delete the report information.

In fact, I may recreate the Deviation you have created for my fandom, which is under heavy and broad attack, but only with your permission.

Now, time to find Coffee.

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. :lol:

It depends on the case, honestly. A person can report just one comment but it is up to the Help Desk admins to decide if they will act on the report.

lol! That trollin tutorial is srs bsns.

Some good information here, however, unless DA policy has changed in the last year, they will not accept notes as proof of any kind of abuse or harassment. I had a case last year for which very little was done, because, DA admin told me that under no circumstances would they consider anything sent in a note as admissible evidence. It had to be in comment form, only. It had something to do with their privacy policy.

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.

northangel27 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.

hybridinsurgency Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
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...
