* UsefulNotes/{{Plagiarism}}: Art theft is a very known problem in this website. It proved to be so much for the admins, that now [[http://protectart.deviantart.com/journal/The-Art-Theft-Discussion-544490149 limited the art theft reports to the authors only]]. [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks Users are not amused]]. This problem is also why visitors tend to see a lot of watermarked artwork on the site, including watermarked fanart of all things.

Fetish Fuel is YMMV but since Deviant Art's YMMV page is inaccessible, it's getting zapped.

* CantTakeCriticism: A sad commodity in the DA community is that of people who react rather violently to the slightest form of negative feedback, sometimes even when constructive. This has led to a rather bad reputation for the site as a whole.

[=DeviantArt=] also has a reputation for how many people think there should be a "Quality Control", however, because "Quality" is ''extremely'' subjective, a lot of peoples' "Quality Control" wouldn't be to remove poorly-drawn work from the site, but to remove entire ''genres'' of art [[PublicMediumIgnorance that the people don't like from the site in general]]. It's also known for blocking criticism from some art, meaning you can be banned for criticizing the art. However, this was put in place due to the amount of people who didn't seem to realize that constructive criticism has to be ''constructive'' and were flat-out insulting the artists personally or mocking the work. [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings It extends to people who don't want to hear criticism at all; constructive or no]], but you do hear people who want critique on the site and specifically request it. As you could tell by [[Wiki/TVTropes us]] locking away the YMMV namespace for this site, it was ''that'' ugly.

Minor edits.
[=DeviantArt=] has a reputation for deleting artwork that they find to be risqué or outright pornographic, a great {{irony}} [[AccidentalInnuendo considering the site's name]] ([[GettingCrapPastTheRadar and the fact that a good-sized portion of the artwork that doesn't get deleted is still pretty risqué]]) and the [[ItsNotPornItsArt "Artistic Nude"]] category. Not-too-un-relatedly, it also has a reputation for being populated by UsefulNotes/{{furr|yFandom}}ies, [[SmallNameBigEgo oversized egos]], and [[SturgeonsLaw bad fanart]]. There's even a game about making a search with at least two words or more and trying not to find {{Mary Sue}}s, ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', {{Anime}}, {{Comics}}, {{Manga}}, ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' or ''Video game/FiveNightsAtFreddys''. All in good fun of course, and the fanart/"creepy"-art-to-"normal"-art ratio is not as high as some parts of the Internet may claim. Nevertheless, it's still widely derided for the tons of Rule 34 art that avoids deletion by playing to various fetishes, and the site's become the butt of many jokes relating to such imagery. It is also rather infamous for occasional bouts of paralyzing bugs. Trying again shortly never works.

* SturgeonsLaw: As should be expected for a social art site. Search for a subject that's popular enough and you'll get some things good and many things bad.

* SturgeonsLaw: As should be expected for a social art site. Search for a subject that's popular enough and you'll get some things good and many things bad.bad. * SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: A common occurrence on the website's forums: a comical regular (often a troll, but sometimes just a regular poster with a sense of humor that pushes the limits) breaks one too many rules and gets banned... only for a "new" person to show up shortly after with a suspiciously similar personality and name, and often the exact same avatar. Since the offenses said people were banned for are considered fairly benign by most people who recognize them, everyone is more than happy to turn a blind eye to this. ** Some years ago, a troll named Ferdinand-The-Elephant was banned; almost immediately after, a "new" poster appeared named [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Not-The-Ferdinand.]] [[RealityEnsues He didn't last long.]]
