No worries, we always do read threads before locking them Your thread was locked due to the last point in FAQ #801:Are there any rules for the Forums? As the FAQ and the volunteer that locked your other thread state, if you have a question about dA, please see our Need Help? thread instead of making a thread.
And if you ever have an issue or disagree with a thread being locked, please feel free to send them a note to ask them to clarify, or contact the Help Desk and they'll happily help you
"If you require help with deviantART, please do not post a thread! These threads can lead to incorrect information being spread, and you may end up with more problems than when you started! As such, threads asking for help will be closed and re-directed to this sticky.
You can get live chat help in the #help channel. Volunteers, when available, can answer your questions, or direct you to someone who can.
