I've become fed up with Deviantart. Many of you know alot of my work. I made a custom Resident Evil Damnation poster a long time ago and posted it here. . You can view it on Flickr www.flickr.com/photos/26217402…
This user ripped off the poster and used it on his cover fav.me/d5fjusq
I reported it to the Deviantart team and they decided to pretty much, delete all of my work instead of his. F'd up, right? All my RE wallpapers...Gone.
I've actually had a problem with Deviantart for a long time. They used my image for a RE5 contest they had a while back. I told them about it and they gave me an apology. But, now they decided to delete that deviant image they took from me along with all of my other work. Here's the message.
I read your comment on the news article and wanted to thank you for bringing this to our attention!
One of our designers took the image off of Game Spy and thought it was a commercial version of the box actually used by Sony Playstation because it uses recognizable elements from the actual box he remembered the last time he had seen one. It was a simple mistake made in haste and you'll see we corrected it as quickly as possible as soon as you brought it to our attention.
We apologize for the confusion,
So its alright for them to take images off of Gamespy and use them (which happened to be mine), but I can't post that image I made here? What!? I'm just gonna stick to Flickr. You guys can follow me on there. www.flickr.com/photos/26217402…
I also recommend uploading your images to Flickr just so this doesn't happened to you and have a backup place.
