e621

Just as a heads up, since members here were disapproving of it. e621.net is back and uploading art without permission just like before, only this time they made a couple changes. If you email them your full address and phone number they'll remove your work and put you on a DNP list (though the faq says it could take a while and if you write angry emails they will ignore you and leave it up), and they started offering wiki pages to post your commission info on.
Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

I'm glad that site is back up. Even if so many people bitched about it in the first place, I found a TON of good artists thanks to that site. Hope nobody takes it down now that they've outlined a decent DNP notification system.

I'm aware I'm in the minority in this community. Too bad. I do commission stuff every once in a while and I used e621 to find some references, so blah. Begin the flaming or something.

It wasn't taken down because of the artists bitching by the way, it was taken down because their host was notified that there was adult material on the site which was against their TOS.

So... they'll post your art without permission, then if you want it taken down you have to give out your address and phone number to strangers?

Something seems... very wrong with that concept.

I, personally, wouldn't care if my art were to end up being posted there. Hell, I'd be amazed people had found my art and liked it enough to post it somewhere. But I honestly don't see how they can go about saying 'we'll do this without your permission, and if you want us to stop you have to give us your personal address and phone number! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA'

From what I've seen, he justifies it with "Well, that's pretty much what you'd need for a DMCA so that's what we're doing". Personally, I think it's not at all since DMCAs seem like something that goes to companies and not people known for being immature and disrespectful, but I have no experience with DMCAs.

Considering what happened last time, people reposting personal information of artists who objected to having their work illegally redistributed and making jokes about going to rape them, I would advise against sending these people your personal information.

At most you should send them a polite note telling them to remove your work, but you could just use the form letter from the previous topical post and send it directly to their host, which is the same as before.

I agree with what other people have said, given the sheer immaturity of what happened last time? Giving an address and phone number to the owner of that site is asking for trouble. Seriously he has no right to ask for that information anyway.

It is pretty bad from the looks of it but sites like these will always pop up. :/

The fact that they make it difficult when an artists asks ti to be removed is ridiculous..... but its sort of imposable to stop all the sites like this.

What really irked me was the posting of a particular piece where as the one on the artists site had a watermark....

*starts crying*

I'm glad they have a DNP list now, but I frankly wouldn't want to give them my personal info. That's kind of frustrating. Glad my art isn't on there.

It's fine if the artists are cool with it, but some of them aren't, and I think those that aren't should at least be asked before their stuff is reposted. Also, the site is mostly a furry porn site, some artists may be uncomfortable having their work displayed there.

If you’re really offended by having your work posted to such a website, please email us with a polite request to have your posts taken down. Rude screaming, rants, and baseless legal threats will be happily ignored.

It doesn't seem to say anything about giving out personal information, but I might have missed it? Or they took it down?

Reading through the FAQ, the webmaster doesn't sound professional at all. Or likable.

It asks for the personal information in another section.
