CEA Blog: Mature Content

Fri May 11, 2012, 6:59 AM
Hey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it. For those of you eager to look at some boobs and hot male torsos, I'm afraid I won't be including any here :petting:.

How the mature content filter works


All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.

The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the deviation which the viewer may click through to see the image at their discretion.

Misconceptions


A mature content tag means I can submit porn and shock pictures!
This seems to be a fairly common misconception, especially with younger members submitting illustrated works. Even with a mature content tag the following FAQs apply:

FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?
FAQ #251: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic literature'; what do you consider this to be?
FAQ #305: Is posting 'Adult' oriented artwork alright if I censor it first?
FAQ #248: Are there restrictions on art using children or teenagers (fictional or otherwise)?
FAQ #7: What is the policy concerning photographs of corpses, cruelty or death?

These policies apply to ALL submissions, regardless of any sort of tag, artist statement or self censorship. If a CEA member determines that an artwork violates one of these policies then it will be subject to removal without warning.

If it shows X then it MUST be marked as strict
We get a lot of reports that a deviation shows some content that a user doesn't like and they think it should have a strict mature content tag. We won't ever place or demand that a strict mature content tag be placed on a deviation, no matter what the content. The strict setting is there only for the submitting deviants peace of mind.

This image shows a person in lingerie, that needs to be tagged!
When it comes to nudity the mature content tagging system is only required under for actual nudity, this means, if you can see the genitals, anus or nipples if the model is female then it should have a tag. This counts even if they are clothed but you can clearly see through the clothing.

This does not apply to deviations where the model is shown in lingerie or clothing that covers genitals or a fully nude model where genitals, are not displayed.  If a models breasts aren't covered but the nipples are then that doesn't need a mature content tag. Body paint and items like nipple pasties may be enough to mean that a deviation doesn't need a tag.

deviantART staff are biased towards a specific gender
We do not give bias towards any gender or orientation. We do our best to apply our policies in an unbiased and objective manner. The CEA team is made up of 4 women and 3 men, we are very tolerant when it comes to nudity, gender and orientation. We don't remove an image because we don't like it and we don't allow images to remain because we do. We try to judge every deviation fairly and honestly according to our policies, if we're not sure then we discuss it as a team and err on the side of the deviant.

What should be marked as mature


As mentioned above, any deviation which clearly depicts visible genitals, female nipples or the anus should be tagged.

We also require that images depicting graphic violence or gore be tagged as mature. These should be actual or realistic depictions of significant injury, surgery, mutilation. or dismemberment. Any depictions of suicide should also be tagged.

It is worth noting that images depicting actual human death will be judged on a case by case basis. Images of actual death or injury that are found to be unnecessarily graphic (shock images) will be removed and may lead to further action being taken against your account. This includes unnecessarily graphic images of animal death or cruelty.

Images of a cartoonish or unrealistic nature or images of minor injuries do not necessarily require a mature content tag. This is the same for images showing blood where no injury is shown.

Ideologically sensitive material should also be tagged. What we mean here is the deliberate use of an offensive opinion or ideal aimed at at someone or something. This includes deviations which glorify, celebrate or promote offensive ideologies. Exceptions may be made for satire or parody but will be judge case by case.

Just because something is associated with an offensive ideology or belief does not mean that it's that it should be tagged or removed.

We do not require a mature content tag based on language used in a deviation, this tag is completely voluntarily and will not be imposed by a deviantART staff member.

In all cases where there is doubt over a reported image, we will discuss it as a team and we may choose to give the benefit of doubt to the artist. deviantART as a website aims to encourage artistic expression and freedom within our policies and so we will not remove or tag an image unless our policy requires it.

Sorry if this has been a little long, but hopefully this will give you a better understanding of our mature content system.

dxd Does the mature content filter work on the "Undiscovered"and "What's Hot" type threads? Because it doesn't seem too. There are way! way! too many pictures that need the filter that do not have it. There is a lot of great art out there but its mingled right in with all the 'undesirable' content that's completely unnecessary.

When you submit the picture you need to click that it is not mature content.

You've clicked that the pictures are mature content which means that they'll be restricted for users. I've removed the mature content tags for you. :)

Because we are bound by US laws which dictate what we can show to minors. US laws state that breasts are not suitable for minors, we have to abide by that.

ok to start, the age restriction is 13+, am i right?

pictures of women wearing practically nothing, a string up their bum called underpants or whatever, should need a tag. 13 year olds don't need to, or want to see that. worse thing is, they are all over the front page and popular pages, and i'm seeing too much of it. i think they should have a warning on them, because I've considered leaving deviantart many times, after seeing these photos.

id really appreciate it if someone did something about that. Everyone should be able to share their art, without being forced to look at practically naked people posing.

I wish the requirements for mature content were stricter. I believe the human body is beautiful and very inspirational, but I enjoy browsing deviantArt at work and someone wearing lingerie is not appropriate when it pops up on the front page of deviantArt. I have the mature content filter on, but it doesn't do me much good when a very provocative deviation pops up on the front page. If the mature content were required for such deviations, then I could chose to browse everything at home by taking off the filter, and I wouldn't have to worry about what deviations appear on the front page when I'm at work.

So basically if the people reviewing it think they can fap to it, then your totally reasonable 'report image' is thrown back in your face. Whenever i find an image that breaks these rules I either never get any kind of response, or it's invalid, for no feasible reason.

This is all good to know, but I do have a few questions. I'm planning to use my account mostly, if not entirely, for posting written works. Are references to sex allowed, so long as no actual sex scenes take place? What's the policy for writing detailed violence? And is vulgar language, such as the F-word, allowed?

If my questions could be answered, it would be much appreciated. :)

Being as someone who has had that 'unfortunate event' where I discover the mature content tag, I think, as most people are arguing whether or not we need one, is that we do need one. I used to go on deviantArt when I was under thirteen...sometimes seeing images that concerned me about this site. As I later got my account, I began to realize that this is just a daily basis where you search something and there's a censored image. People don't realize that if deviantArt didn't have that mature content filter, and that if the mature content allowed guests to view anything, then parents would file complaints. Such as where a child is underage; parents do not want to see their child looking at colorful imagery (colorful as in gory or pornographic). This is just my opinion and if my thoughts don't agree with yours, then there's nothing that can change that. It's my argument about the 'mature content' situation.

I think Censorship sucks ! If people are offended by nudity then they need to keep their mature content filters ON. The human body itself is probably the greatest work of art ever or ever will be. When you start letting the select, Rule what you have is a censored and numb collection of artist. I'm not a pornaholic and, I don't see artistry in everything that has nudity but, I do support the rights of others to judge for themselves. Personally about nudity, I don't think it's a big deal either way. What it is, Is a way and, Part of life. Do these people that are so offended never takes showers ? Do they never have sex ? If a vagina closed/open or a penis erect or not bothers you. Then you should'nt be looking at it. If you are offended look away. Go to another section. Or block that artist ( You do have that feature ) But, For a board or however many people are obejectionable to it. They should NOT have majority rule. We live in a free society and by censoring what a board or " Some people" find offensive is not fair or right. I'm not promoting one side or the other. But, What I am promoting is non censorship. I agree with a lot of you. Some things I don't see art in as I said but, That does NOT give me the right to tell you that , You can't view this or that or, That this or that is Obscene. Each individual has to make that decision for themselves. Under the law what should be censored is pedophilia and, Things such as this that ARE against the Law and, I support the Law but, I will NEVER support Censorship in any way , Shape or Form. I don't feel that I have the right to tell anyone what they can or can't see or do. That is not democracy. That is Facism and that my friends is repugnant for anyone to tell anyone else what their rights are, Or what their morals or values should be. I have seen too many brilliant artist in all genres stiffled by censorship or, By ideaology. There was a guy in the 1940's famous for this. Anything that he or his regime did'nt agree with, Was burnt, Mutillated, Destroyed or Killed. Is that the will you want imposed on you, Muchless your artwork no matter what the genre ? ...................

maybe if someone censored that "guy in the 40s" then millions of people wouldn't have been killed.

I'm not in favor of censorship in most cases, but there are boundaries of good taste. I understand that's a subjective argument but when I first log in and I've got a picture of some guy holding his dick (and nothing else), I don't want to see that shit. I shouldn't have to put up my adult content filter just because I don't want to see pics of dicks. Male nude doesn't bother me, but I fail to see what pics of just genitals accomplishes in terms of art. Anything? And yes, I'd be saying the same of pics of just a vagina. There's no need for such things.

Well agreed.Like I said I don't see art in everything as you don't either but,I don't think You or I have the right to censor the masses. Personally,I don't find a monkey masturbating or someone blowing their brains out art either (And I use those as broad examples.) But, Who am I to say what You or anyone else can see or can't see. I just don't think the right or responsibility is mine or anyone else's. I mean if it were me and only me,Then maybe but, As for others.I'm no judge. To me there is art like Rembrandt which is basically nice but, It's a bunch of little naked angels on clouds. Not so much art to me but, I have NO right to judge or try and make up other peoples minds about it. That's not my place nor my duty. And, When it comes down to it as far as art or whatever. If I had a child, I'd much rather it see a man kissing a womans breast versus it seeing a man cut a womans breast off. But, Those are my views and,I don't expect anyone or, Feel that anyone has to subscribe to my viewpoint. Basically I think we agree for the most part but, I'm just trying to look at both sides of the coin here. I hope you can understand what I am saying here. I just don't feel it is anyones place to set them self up as Judge, Jury and, Executioner so to speak regarding censorship. It's like a piece of art that comes through your page from a group you may be in. If you like it you comment. If you don't care for it, Then you simply let it pass on by. Or a television program. If you like it, You watch it. If not, You simply flip the channel... Thanks for your input and, Viewpoint.

Oh, I definitely get your point and have heard that argument from most anyone who doesn't want censoring in any form. To a large extent I agree, but I also feel that there are things that cross a line. Have you heard of the movie "A Serbian Film"? I haven't seen it because I chose not to, but from what research I've done, it's possibly the most vile, repugnant, ultra-violent piece of garbage put to film. It contains necrophilia, infanticide, pedophilia, murder, rape, illicit drug use, sexual violence, etc, all done so convincingly that it has left ever reviewer I've encountered shaken to the point of unbelief.

So I ask, what purpose does something like this serve? Is that kind of filth a benefit to a free society? I don't think so. When you break it all down, freedom exists when everyone agrees to play by the same set of rules. Is that then truly freedom? No. What is true freedom? Anarchy; when anyone can do whatever they want to whoever they want and whenever they want. Problem with anarchy is that many people's idea of personal freedom comes at the expense of someone else and then not everyone is free and the idea breaks down.

The point I make is that I believe there has to be a line, agreed on by the people, that shouldn't be crossed. There are simply things labelled "art" that provide no positive benefit upon it's consumption. The art snobs would say those things "provoke discussion" or "push boundaries" to which I reply... for what? Where is the benefit in pushing boundaries, especially the boundaries of good taste? I personally don't see the need or use for such things.

I understand some will disagree on the basis that freedom of expression (artistic expression included) must be allowed across the board from the good to the bad. Again, I'm not so sure that's in society's best interest. We've pushed societal boundaries very far in that last 40 years and I'm not sure we're better off or happier for it as a whole.

just my opinion.

And I support your right to that opinion but, I cannot and, Will not agree with you 100 %. I think you are using some really broad example with this film. ( and, No I have'nt seen it ) But, Again I think you have to understand that this is America and, We as individuals have the right to express ourselves freely within the confines of the law of the land. My suggestion is use your Mature content filters and, Understand that is exactly what they are for. And, If you can't live with that. Then maybe you should re-think your whole posistion of being on Deviant Art. That is what the whole site is built upon. Thousand and thousands of artist's with different visions of art. That's just the way it is ....

I think you just undermined your own argument there by stating that you are free to express yourselves within the confines of the law. That certainly applies in America as it does in other countries. I am Canadian and we have hate-speech laws up here which I think are a good thing. Those laws -in fact- oppress someone's freedom to incite hate towards groups of people. Wouldn't a truly free society have to tolerate freedom across the entire spectrum? That was my point in saying that there is a line.

There is a lot of stuff I don't agree with tolerated in society, and that is the price of freedom. And yes, it's up to the individual to censor what they don't like and not watch/listen to /consume it. My point is that shouldn't picture of genitals have to be something you search for and not be available right on the title page? I still fail to see the artistic value in such things but I'm not suggesting they be censored. Just put off the main freaking page.

You have your opinion and, I have mine. I think basically you just want to argue a point. And I have no intention of continuing this conversation and further. I did'nt undermine my argument at all. You simply want censorship of anything you don't personally agree with. I on the other hand, Think people should be able to make up their own minds. This is the end of this conversation as my time quite frankly is more valuable to me obviously than your's is to you. Have a good day. :bye:

I was currently reading DuoSmexyMaxwell's story and I just found out most of her chapters were deleted. Isn't it contradicting that they put the correct tags and warnings on their stories yet most of the chapters are deleted for "pornographic literature"? I didn't see their story or work as pornographic. I've seen pornographic pictures on here that are far worse than a fanfiction with mature content. Their work was only able to be viewed by adults on here not minors, plus their story was very well written. If their work is tagged with the correct warnings then I do not see why they should be deleted. I believe that whom ever requested for the removal of the chapters is probably homophobic or squeamish when it comes to same-sex couples whether the couples are real or fictional. I do not have a problem with DA and never had, so I hope no one sees this as such and tries to site me or remove me for simply sticking up for a fellow artist. I'm simply a member on here to enjoy artwork and fanfiction as well as post my artwork on here. Thank you for your time.

There are 2 mature content settings, warning and strict. Warning creates a page that warns a user the content is mature, but the user can choose to click through the page and access it. Strict prevents users that have their mature content filter on from accessing the page at all.

"We get a lot of reports that a deviation shows some content that a user doesn't like and they think it should have a strict mature content tag."

You get a lot of reports from me and others who flag blatantly obvious rule violations. I have seen images of stupid men posting their erect dicks that have remained on the site, with a result of a tag on the "Explicit Pornography" report stating that no action was taken. Why? The same goes with women spreading their vag. The images remain, and the report is closed with no action taken. What's the point of having these rules if they are not enforced?

Also, the rule for men and "erections" not being shown is not good enough. It should read that if a penis is not ***FLACCID*** it is a rule violation. Otherwise you get men who are half-erect posting their blurry cell phone camera dick pics, and they can technically get away with it since they aren't fully erect. It's still showing a man in a state of arousal, and I think *that's* what the spirit of the rule is trying to filter: a bunch of unwanted pornography and those who get self-gratification via blatant sexual exhibitionism.

Oh, one other thing I'd like to see - the ability to report a deviation without needing to go to the deviation's page. I don't want these people getting views just because I am reporting them. An overwhelming majority of reports I file I can tell just from the thumbnail that it's violating the rules. Otherwise going to the page makes the person think people are opening up the page because they *want* to see it. I only open it because I am forced into opening it to report it. Either that or if a page is opened up to report it, do not count that as a page view. I want to discourage these people from doing the same thing again, not give them a false indication that people are interested in their garbage.

I like the mature tags and rules regarding this matter. However, few things really bother me. These rules DO NOT completely protect young people from pornographic and explict material. I've seen TONS of disgusting images all over here on dA. Yes, that is my opinion, and I don't care what other people like, but many of those things are just way overboard and I am concerned about the young public here on dA, who you try so hard to protect. Well.. It's not working. And many adult users feel uncomfortable to see much of this type of content, as well. I'm 26 yo, I like porn and Hentai, but I look for it elsewhere, on pages for adults only. I feel highly uncomfortable seeing STRONG Hentai on dA. I simply don't think it's the place to post such imagery. It's very easy to over go the rules and people use it all the time. I really don't think placing a censorship "sticker" on the genitalia or cropping the image or just using a "good" angle makes it alright to post Hentai when I clearly, I'm sorry for my language, see the characters (or creatures!) are fucking or being raped. And if those things were just tasteful, but they're not, they're nasty, they're fetish, violence and gore, and often just simply weird.
If you're fine with "artistic nude" photography then you really should take care of other images as well. Tasteful Ecchi and lovemaking (no matter the gender) are great, but explict fucking, raping,tentacles, beastiary, inflamation, and any other things that clearly go under the Hentai label should not be here. I highly recommend re-thinking and changing those rules a bit. :(

Kinda gets you irritated. Is there any way we can filter these photos from coming in? I know some would say oh its art but I'm sorry A women who disrespects her self allowing her V to be posted all over especially in terms of spread eagle is not a respectable piece of art.

I don't know if the admins look at these comments much, I realize there are a lot, but I would appreciate a response.

I have no problem with most mature content, but I wish there was a way to block my view of fetish imagery such as spanking, bondage, body inflation, etc. Sometimes they do not explicitly show nudity and therefore are not tagged, even though they are sexual in tone. I like looking at artistic nudes, but I don't like the fetish art. I do NOT think they should be banned, I just wish I could block my view of them like with other mature content. I wish there was a way to separate the two and have a filter for each.

If any admin sees this, I would love a response of any kind. Thanks so much.

Does FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be? refer just to photographs, or to drawings as well? Because I reported a comic several weeks ago for depicting semen (and "censored" sexual activity), but it's still on dA: [link]

So would a report involving FAQ #248: "Are there restrictions on art using children or teenagers (fictional or otherwise)? " Go under "sexualized minor"?
