To Submit or Not To SubmitIf there's one thing the default 'Newest' front page of deviantART brings to attention the most, it's the prevalence of art theft on our site.To Submit or Not To Submit by failing-at-flight
What I am going to try to address here, however, is the rampant and careless submission of deviations that very clearly violate the Submission Policy.
This is a site for art - it is right in the name. This is not Imageshack, Myspace, or Photobucket. Over the past week or so, I have been viewing the page of newest deviations, and while I have found a few exceptional, original pieces of art that led me to watch their respective artists, the thing I came across much more often was blatant violation of the rules for submission at this site. I have come across several galleries where the entire gallery, or the majority of it, is composed of violations.
Let's be clear here: Opening up MS Paint and plastering some text over someone else's photo, a screenshot from your favorite television show or movie, or anything
