So we will be amending the rule to reflect option number 2, which was:
Yes, but only if the person is taking commissions/trades using traced work.
Rather self-explanatory. Posts about your average tracer uploading to Deviantart because they thought Sailor Moon was cool and wanted to trace (but aren't taking money for it) will now be redirected to art_theft.
In practice, this doesn't mean much of a change. We rarely received tracing/copying posts that weren't business-related in some way. We've merely brought the rule more in line with the purpose of artists_beware, leaving the rest to the more specialized art_theft, who are usually better suited to finding originals and the like anyway.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
