* 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.

[=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 [[BiasSteamroller 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 not]], 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.
