Idk if this is the right place, but I have to say it because I’m very upset and spent a lot of money, along with the hard work the artists did, only to be rejected for zero/invalid reasons. It’s literally just a romantic embrace, not even nude and fully clothed. Which blows my mind on THIS reason was given:
Nudity / Sexual Content: portrays adult themes, including pornographic content, nudity, or prostitution
Implies that characters are having, have had, or are about to have sex, including (but not limited to): use of actual or implied nudity, a bed scene with more than one person, depiction(s) of one or more characters who are sexually touching themselves or one another, images that depict sex work or a sexual act in exchange for compensation
These are the covers in question I just resubmitted.
The small cover with the story title: I removed the “Mature” part because that MIGHT have been the reason it was rejected, despite again, anyone can see that this doesn’t violate TOS. But I think it’s really because of the “mature” part that might’ve been somehow interpreted as “sExUaL cOnTeNt”. This one is now virtually the same one that got rejected.
This is where it gets extremely confusing. This was a commissioned piece that WAS ACTUALLY approved before, though this one was a second upload after the first one was rejected due to “weapons” shown. After censoring and pixelating it, it was approved. However, this time (3rd upload), they now claimed this has sexual content which makes no sense because they approved it the second time no problem.
The only reason I reuploaded was because I wanted to add a watermark to prevent art thieves, both with my name and the artist name. I must’ve forgotten to censor the gun so I went ahead and did that in this attachment, so hopefully this one isn’t rejected either. But the most confusing part is really just the sexual content part, the same one as above. How???
Sorry I might sound really mad but that’s because I am. I paid a lot for these beautiful pieces and so much work/time has been put towards it.
It’s not even them half naked, THERE ARE LITERALLY COVERS by bigger creators and even some moderate sized ones that are far more suggestive/indicating sexual relationships. Don’t get me started on the mafia ones. Since when were romantic, fully clothed embraces against TOS???
I went ahead and submitted a support ticket along with resubmitting these two and waiting with bated breath. It’s going to be devastating if they’re rejected again…all without valid reasons.
Be honest, everyone, do any of these (now edited and pending review) pieces contain sexual or explicit content? If it does, I wonder what that says for Official and even bigger community stories focusing on gangs/cheating/half naked characters. Ridiculous.
