Warning - Pedophile on DA It seems a registered sex offender is back online. Glenn Glatz has been using the username SoThatsWhatsUp for a few months now, using a young girl's face as a coverup for a while. I didn't want to get involved again, but now that I know it's him I wanted to warn my watchers that he's back.
Please do not attack him, do not message him. You may report if you see fit, but that's all we can do for now. This is just a warning because I know I have young watchers and this man is rather sick, he'd sooner harass those against him into submission before admitting he's in the wrong.
It's come to my attention that Glenn is trying to threaten those who are spreading this with law suits. Let it be known, there's no way in hell he can sue you for warning your watchers about a registered sex offender. As you can search Glenn Glatz's name on google, and find him as a sexual predator with the first link that pops up.
The sad idea about art thieves.“Making art is like having a child, it takes time to mature and to show to the world.
You have people who praise it, and to congratulate you. And the people who envy you for such creativity.”
It’s never easy doing art, you must protect it at all costs. But when someone steals your art, it would be far too late. You art child would be tortured, poorly changed and yet still recognizable, and even forced to be looked at by many people, just because someone wanted to be popular or make a profit.
Your art child would be crying, screaming for help from its original parents. Yet no matter how many times you tried to rescue the art child, the “police” won’t do anything about it.
If this ever happened to you. Please, let the thief know what he/she is doing. Stealing your child from you, torturing the poor thing, and using it for illegal or selfish reasons.
Zamii070 Truth About Her She Ain't a Saint Mistress: So I was talking to a very nice person whom I should not tag on here because she is not feeling well and I don't want to keep bugging her. Anyway we were talking about the subject on about a teenage girl who was harassed and threaten on the Steven Universe fandom because of her art now if you didn't know about it here is the link for it http://theodysseyonline.com/monmouth/why-am-no-longer-steven-universe-fan/204442 . Read it and than come back, messed up right? Its just cold and wow..never knew that the fandom of my fave show would be this freaking cold. Now the main point of this journal isn't about the fandom rather the one fan..who is the title of this journal Zamii070 oh her..she was cyber bullied, harassed and everything but the one thing that the article didn't mention was why she was being harassed in the first place..like what was so big on her that made her get into that type of situation there is always an answer or a theory on it. But i have the a
How to Be a Better DeviantHow to Be a Better Deviant
Despite so many of the complaints some people have against it, DeviantART is a very good social network geared specifically towards artists and people who appreciate art. DeviantART is, in fact, one of the very first sites of its kind, predating even such social networking giants as Facebook and Myspace.
It is a wonderful place to share your work, to look at the work other artists have created, to offer and receive advice on artwork, and many other functions. You will find that there are lots of fellow Deviants out there who want the best for you and want to see you excel as an artist and as a member of the DeviantART community. On the other hand, you will also find an alarming number of people who like to troll, flame, spam, and just generally cause trouble for fellow Deviants. Every place has them, and there's no escaping it.
That said, there are a few ways you can survive the onslaught of some of
Fake Paypal email warningI wanted to post a journal to warn those who might come across this email themselves and accidently fall for this scam. Thankfully after nearly falling for it, I had red flags go up once I read it twice, and I am awaiting to hear from paypal themselves to confirm my suspicions.
This is the email:
The red indicates what I believe is total BS honestly. But this whole email just screams "I'm generically written with no official logo to support myself, but my purpose is to scare you so please fall for this scam!?"
1: No logo?!
2: I don't recognise this link, in the past it usually states my email address that I use to sign in to Paypal.
3: 'Dear customer' - paypal have always addressed me by my paypal account name, never this!
4: Now this is just weird to me. You wouldn't say ''website' if you are talking on behalf of your own, right? Nor 'Web address'? If this was paypal and they wanted me to confirm my details etc on my account, they would
VERY IMPORTANT : SCAMMER ON DEVIANT ARTListen I want you all to be aware. I gave 1,000pts to someone. They promised me $10 dollars in return. But they didn't. They came to me apologizing.
It appears they have scammed other people and will NOT stop scamming even if they know it's bad. I know they know because here.
Boo you are stealing points. Just because they aren't money doesn't mean someone isn't going to get hurt. WE EARNED THOSE POINTS and most of us WORKED FOR THEM. It's the currency/money on deviant art. It's wrong.
I'm usually calm about this and I don't like getting involved in Deviant art drama. BUT I will not stand for this. No one has said much of anything except for a few, I want you guys to know they are just a thief/scammer who believes they can keep doing this even if they know it's wrong. Please beware this person. Here's some evidence I wasn't the only one.

Please watch out for the user PastelBluePrince
As always, do not go and attack this person. Do NOT stoop to their level.
This user has stolen art, bases, and characters.
I had been their friend before I realized that they had been lying to me and many others.
-Making bases of other people's art without asking/without waiting for a response for the original creator
-Copying the designs of characters for adopts
-Lying to me when asked if they traced/referenced other art pieces more than once
-Copying FluttershySocks ponysona after they had blocked her, then when Sarahostervig changed the piece for her, she would not credit her for the work she had done.
-Stealing pay to use bases on more than one occasion
Even taking one of my o
