Okay, so I came across one of these accounts. They had nothing but a bunch of slightly altered pictures of celebrities. So, I went through and reported their works, but then I find that almost all their watchers have similar violations. There's just so much to report, it's insane!

People wonder why some stolen works get deleted by staff, and why others stay up. The reason is, it's the members that have to help keep dA cleaned up! The admins can't look through every single deviation submitted, so that's how things slip through the cracks. We have to help keep our art community healthy.

So, please, take a little time to help out with cleaning up this huge mess.

Here are some of the accounts that I reported to the help desk:

RockinGirls
itsabaffledking
AwesomeAndGlamour
StyleCyrus
Nickhelado
JustJonasxJoe
ItsaFreshCyrus
marudesignsx
EstarssDisney
SophiisticatedArt
RockStarCyrus
cyruscrazystyle
LikeStarstruck

HaveFunWithJB-MC
inmyheartwithfamous
ItsaFreshCyrus
MyClassicRainbow
rockingwiththestars
ShiineGlamour
sobeautifulmusic
theriotscenexhw
blindbythelight

They are watched by even more accounts, very and suspiciously similar to each other.

So again, please. If you have the time, report some of this crap! This kind of stuff belongs on photobucket, NOT dA. deviantART is a place for artists that work extremely hard to hone their skills. As a community it is out responsibility to make sure that this stuff get's cleaned up.

There are literally tens of thousands of these types of accounts. dA really needs to hire staff to search for and remove these types of works of have it so submissions have to be approved before publication.

Yeah, okay... :roll:
I actually saw one pic from one of them in someones favorites, and when I looked at their main page, I saw... Well, all the other accounts... It's like seeing one roach, then you go after it with a can of bug killer, and you chase it to some corner where you find a whole goddamned nest. :dead:

UPDATE

The admin that answered me back at the help desk said that "the help desk cannot do anything about copyright infringing deviations" in other words, we would have to report ALL of the works there, or request the accounts to be banned.

Does using the report button deviation by deviation work? I did that on an account you don't have listed about two days ago and no response yet.

Yeah, that works to report the individual deviation, but it won't get the account banned. You have to go to the help desk to request the user to be banned.

Well I mentioned because you said the admins wouldn't ban through the art theft reporting system, seems like they do, or it was a one off :D Anyway, I went through and reported the ones you've got here, or most, hopefully it works!! :)

Yeah, I dunno. I can only guess that they have nothing better to do. But in all honesty, if they took the time they were spending on spamming dA with crap and put it to making their own original art, they'd probably have a nice drawing or two that would be much more appreciated.

Dude, I bet that half of these users either know each other, or are the same person.

I would expect as much from an art-theif....

Don't know, don't care. If it all was anime I'd be the same way about it.

their names just sound sounds like freeloaders. like i say if you cant draw go to take art classes! these thieves are the one's who cant take their time to practice drawing and of course there are some of them that live and feed off of other peoples hard labor. i think da should have a group of deviants speciallized in banning art thieves
