It is a bannable offense to delete your own post. It is in the rules on the profile. This is a reminder as we've recently had someone do so regardless of not having permission.

The whole point of this community is to warn people of bad behaviour regarding art in some form (or ask for advice). Even if a case is resolved, it is preferred the post stay up so people know what they may be getting into, and past history can be logged properly. Resolved posts will be marked with a resolved tag and you may update your post or make a separate update to reflect such.

But this community is not for calling someone out to shame them into getting your way, just to delete the post as soon as you get what you want. It does a disservice to everybody else to treat Artists Beware like your own personal livejournal.

That said, we need the help of any of you who may know the livejournal alts of rainbow_pubes (rainbow_pubes), who is Hyasinth on Furaffinity. If you know of any, please either comment here or contact me directly through my email, danillama@gmail.com

This has been your friendly mod reminder! Thank you. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

I remember commenting on his posts... wasn't it fursuit related?
Feb. 5th, 2010 10:49 pm (UTC)
Yes it was. It involved Wolfbird and a horse zombie fursuit head.
Feb. 5th, 2010 11:01 pm (UTC)
So why was it deleted then?
Did he get his fursuit issue settled?

Not gonna lie, someone informed Wolfbird of the post, and Wolfbird wanted it gone so that the transaction could be 'settled to their satisfaction'. R_P went against the mods and the rules by deleting the post.

So its pretty much a case of blackmail that succeeded.

To tell you the truth, I informed WolfBird becuase I'm on friendly terms with them and I figured if someone besides the commissioner gave them a nudge that their reputation was on the line---and they were a honest enough person---they'd jump right on finishing the piece you know? I told WolfBird specifically to not make it into a big deal but to just finish up the commission and the post would be marked as resolved, and in the end wouldn't really mar their reputation. Wolfbird didn't seem enraged by it or anything and said they'd get back in contact with the commissioner.

I don't however, agree with the commissioner deleting their post. Weather or not Wolfbird asked or blackmailed them is null and void---If you want your commissioned work to be finished, then you damn well better leave that entry up!

Wolfbird did ask for the post to be deleted.

One of the irky things as a moderator, and the moderator that dealt with this specific situation, is that Hyasinth went out of their way to email me and ask me what they should do. I told them no, they should not delete their post, and that Wolfbird shouldn't have demanded they delete the post in order to help them and that it just made their case stronger that they did so. But they deleted it anyway.

Why ask permission if you're just going to do it regardless? I can't pretend I'm not annoyed about that. And I will personally remember Wolfbird's name as someone to avoid for even making such a request. It's interesting how things work out when people try to cover things up.

They deleted it without permission because the artist told them to.

No problem. We'll exercise our common sense in unique situations, but the rules are there for a good reason and we're not going to just shrug if someone breaks them.

Yes. I'm leaving the tags in the community even though it doesn't link to a post anymore, and I'll be remembering the name, myself.
Feb. 6th, 2010 01:30 am (UTC)
You might want to mention the names of the people involved, and add the related tags, to the post itself.
Feb. 6th, 2010 01:33 am (UTC)
I'm a little iffy on the idea of making the post too personal. I'm just hoping someone can help me with any livejournal alts the person might have, but I don't think it would be appropriate to edit the entire scenario into the post.
Feb. 6th, 2010 05:38 pm (UTC)
Wait. You're one of the mods here? No wonder I like ya. ;-)

Missed the whole thing. I guess it came and went that quickly.

Deleting comments is the cowardly way out, especially those that are drama prone and have been mentioned on here multiple times.
Feb. 8th, 2010 12:43 am (UTC)
May I get the link to the rules ?

btw. some one should check if this rule don't violates the law.
Feb. 8th, 2010 12:45 am (UTC)
Re: Question
The rules are listed on the profile page.

Re: Question
I haven't seen the entry in the rule set that deleting his/her own entry is BANable...
Feb. 8th, 2010 07:11 am (UTC)
Re: Question
There will be some common sense applied (IE someone means to edit but hits delete instead, or contacts us and we give them permission, etc), but otherwise, now you know!
Feb. 11th, 2010 08:41 pm (UTC)
Re: Question
If you are asking why they were banned instead of getting a warning as outlined in the community info, it is because of the manner in which they deleted their post. While the three-strikes system is what we generally follow, as Kayla_la says, we use our own discretion in instances such as this.

Re: Question
What law would the rule possibly be violating?
Feb. 11th, 2010 12:30 pm (UTC)
Re: Question
None. LJ is a privately owned company and as such is only subject to its rules and regulations.
