[=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 infamous reputation for being allegedly populated by UsefulNotes/{{furr|yFandom}}ies, [[SmallNameBigEgo oversized egos]], [[BalloonBelly inflation]], [[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'', ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'', ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' or certain popular modern day cartoons. 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.

Unusually, this wiki had an It Just Bugs Me[[note]]now known as {{Headscratchers}}[[/note]] page for [=DeviantArt=] before the site had a work page.

Unusually, Also, on an interesting off note, this wiki had an It Just Bugs Me[[note]]now known as {{Headscratchers}}[[/note]] page for [=DeviantArt=] before ''before'' the site had a work page.page, which, needless to say, is something very uncommon.

* 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.
** The inverse is also true: expect to see arguments break out in the comments when someone's criticism comes across badly or was not well made in the first place.



* FanFiction: Also allowed as an extension of the above, [[http://www.deviantart.com/browse/all/literature/fanfiction/ as a subcategory under "Literature"]].
* RuleThirtyFour: Expectedly quite common. However, it's ''exponentially'' more healthy and tasteful than what one generally finds on the rule 34 site itself.
* Main/RuleSixtyThree: Like the rule above, this one is also quite common.
* 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.
* 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.
** Example: A troll named Ferdinand-The-Elephant was banned; almost immediately after, a "new" poster (probably a SockPuppet) appeared named [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Not-The-Ferdinand.]] [[RealityEnsues He didn't last long.]]
* TooDumbToLive:
** An artist named [[http://cuckyduck.deviantart.com/ cuckyduck]] stole another artist's images, claimed them as his own, and then attacked said artist accusing them of theft, even though the images in question were there for longer than his account.
** Seems to be the case for a good 99% of art thieves- it's not unusual for them to try the strategy above, nor is it odd for them to post art with obvious signatures and watermarks, write journals about how they drew the work but the original artist bullied them/stole it, or evade ban under an obviously similar name while stealing the EXACT SAME ART they stole last time.
