● Any Deviant found breaking our group rules will be blocked from the group.
The time length of this block varies by which time any of the rules has been broken by the User.
● There will be no warnings or notifications if a Deviant is blocked from the group.
- First offence: 1 week
- Second offence: 1 month
- Third offence: 3 months
● Breaking group rules four times is equal to permanent block from the group.
● Deviants who post to leave actual input or asking a question, won't get blocked.● Posting Two Times Under 1 Hour
You do not need to excessively ask for the list. Please give other Deviants a chance to leave a comment for llama trading purposes.
It also helps to reduce the comment spam and allows other deviants to post, so that Traders List gets even more updated.● Posting More Than 5 Comments Per Day
This rule simply discourages "posting sprees", which means posting with correct time spacing (1 hour) throughout the whole day.
The reasons for those comments are mainly to increase one's attention over others, or to stay at the top of the Comment Page.
Time zone taken into consideration is UTC, or as differently named: Zulu Time.● Excessive Icons
Use of excessive icons is considered as a form of spamming. While we understand that icons are a way to make your comment unique,
there is no need for a person to use icons to leave large comments with icons that have - to be blunt - annoying animations.
For this reason we will consider comments that use more than 10 icons to be excessive.● Advertisements
The only comments we accept on our Group's Main Page are those asking for llamas in exchange for llamas.
This means that any comments promoting something other than the equal trading of llama badges are not acceptable.
You cannot ask for: points, favourites, comments, watches, commissions, art requests; or promote contests, deviant profiles, other websites, galleries, journals,
and anything that does not simply ask llamas for llamas.● Spamming / Comment Flooding
Spamming or comment flooding are comments that are posted continuously. The reason for these comments could be to annoy, troll,
or generally be malicious, or the Deviant seeks increased attention over others. These types of comments are unacceptable.
This is also referring to comment replies as well. You do not need to reply telling Deviants you've given them a llama - they know through their notifications.● Bot Abuse
Abusing the Bot's functions in order to create spam or break the bot is highly against the rules.
The Bot is here due to a partnership, we do not run it nor control it, but we will protect it.
If in the response from dAhub
you've gotten a warning:
- That means you haven't returned more than 79% of Llama Badges received by you.
- You need to at least return that amount of Llama Badges before posting another comment.
Posting again without 79% Llama Badge return rate will get you blocked, until you've returned them.
Keep in mind that:
- This also applies to deviants who buy Llama Badges. Why?
We are unable to view a purchase history of badges "bought" or "sold" and therefore we will simply treat all badge statistics the same way.
- Banned users list isn't reviewed every day, so after you've returned satisfactory amount, just be patient.
This policy will be implemented November 9, 2014; 12:00 am UTC.
It is well within the group's rights to block any individual from interacting with the group. The group also has the right to decide its own blocking policies. These are written under deviantArt's ToS
and Etiquette Policy
"Keep in mind that Group administrators may determine their own rules and privileges for deviants who participate in the Group and as a general rule we will not become involved in any disputes between Group members,
between Group administrators or between one or another Group unless there is a clear violation of our own policies, rules and terms. We suggest you use good judgment and decency in all of your Group interactions
as well as exercising the same cautions you would use in any Internet exchanges with individuals who you may not know." - Etiquette Policy
