Probably the last miscat update

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 11, 2015, 3:13 AM
We're finally seeing at least some success at reducing the number of misplaced deviations in the fractal resource category. I've tried to check that category at least several times a day in the past month. While we still get anywhere from 3 to 10 a day sometimes, it seems that most deviants are cooperative in moving the images to different categories after I have left polite messages on their deviations. Most of them do move the images. Some have asked for help because they don't know how, so I took some screen shots and showed them the process. :) Only two people have blocked me (that I know of) because of my comment on their page. One of them blocked me after moving their image and reported my message as spam! The other blocked me and didn't move their image(s). :)

Also, Deviant Art did finally answer one of my support tickets, and did remove all the images from the worse offender that had uploaded over 1800 photo packs in the fractal resource category in the past 3 or 4 months. So now we are only getting a handful of miscats per week that deviants are not moving, mostly due to the language barrier I think. It does seem to appear that once I leave a message on their deviation page about a miscat, they are much less apt to submit more images (to fractal resources) after having been notified. So we've gone from many hundreds per week to just over a dozen in the past three weeks that haven't been moved.

Unfortunately, there are still hundreds (thousands?) of older miscats that Deviant Art says they just don't have the time or staff to take care of. They say they are trying to work out a way to address this problem for the future. Personally, I think all those photo packs should be deleted as a copyright violation and that there is no making of art involved and simply no place for that sort of thing here at DA. That's not what Da is supposed to be about, and I think it's a damned shame that they allow it in the first place.

Based on parameters of BorisG4 

I went looking for the deviation of his this was based on, but I guess he has deleted it? It was called CuBollyd 8

I always liked this Gypsy looking fractal, one of the first fractals I made... By the way, I thought it looked like a gypsy because it looked like he had two big ear rings hanging from his ears...
