Is it just me, or are there more and more people posting screenshots and posters of movies and cartoons and animes as their own artworks? Here's just one example I saw tonight on the front page:

~Redworld96 the two deviations is basically these shots:

and

straight from the videogame official art.. D: not even a slightest bit of alter or credits except for adding his signature onto the official art. anyone else seem to notice more and more of these?

At least they didn't steal my spices. Then it would be WAR.

well, I'm not calling out people to take action D: in fact, I didn't even report the person, I just told her to add credits and she complied. It's just a rant and it turns out this topic's over-done. I'm new to the forums so I'm sorry if this topic offends everyone apparently.

Well, perhaps you should have held off the ranting for a bit until your emotions cooled off.

I think that Deviant art should have stricter guidelines as to what can be submitted as art. All else can go up on Tumblr. I saw a picture up recently of some douche making a post about ' hey! this is my new hair cut!" -_- Seriously. that shot in the mirror with your camera phone is not art its photobucket.

those use to bother me, but I guess I've been desensitized from seeing too many. Nowadays it's more about girls posting iphone-nude photos of themselves and getting hundreds of faves. If it's with a proper camera, at least I can be like "well, maybe it's artistic nude", but those are grainy pictures that are taken with no more than an iphone -_-;

Sadly, most people who join DA won't even look through the TOS and such once. Won't even glance through them. Then newbies and children will post violations unknowingly and claim "I DIDN'T KNOW!"
It is becoming more and more frequent though, I notice.
The report system is so sluggish now though.
IMHO, it's only going to get worse until DA can't even withhold the most basic rules.
It's sad.

:3 well, if they truly didn't know, I let it slide. from what I see from people's comments, seems like alot of those kids become hostile after people try to steer them straight though D:

*offtopic* cute pichu as your icon xD :iconcandidthestrident: are you getting Pokemon XY?

They do but I don't think I could let it slide over their not knowing the rules. They click a box that says they did read them so they should be held responsible for their actions.

I wanna but it depends on what platforms it comes on.
