So I'm sure a lot of you may have heard some of the rumors going around about DA getting ban happy recently but if not, let me explain.
So it started out as rumor a few weeks ago that DA were going to go full Tumblr and start purging artwork they don't like at the end of 2020, when Eclipse goes full live. While I first thought this was just a load of nonsense, a person who goes by the DA name, Penjelum got a ban for life for pointing this out and things started to go down hill from there. Several more people have gone on Twitter complaining how they've had artwork taken down some that is even several years old out of the blue.
While DA has denied this is true, the evidence slowly is mounting up and more people each day seem to be getting hit with more and more bans. One thing that seems to be common that I've seen is it relates to either characters who have been 'aged up' (which is fair enough) but the other is fetish related art. To quote one of the so called 'insiders',
An IRL friend who’s been declined to volunteer at DA informed me they’ve overheard that upon Eclipse full release. A new policy revision will be issued that lewd / sexually suggestive / NSFW / fetish content will be removed. This’ll be done as indiscreetly as possible to scrub the platform clean. Tumblr is the best example of this situation.
However, it should still be taken as a rumor for the time being but just be careful as a DA purge might not be too far off and it might be time to find alternative places to upload before it's too late!
