I'd be interested to hear what explanation you have for best selling print of, now when you're mentioning her, lets say her BBC Sherlock fanart, a digital painting that is using copyrigter material, screencap(s)as ref and is showing actor Benedict Cumberbatch in character as Sherlock Holmes. That is all clearly against dA's rules, but yet the print is not only being sold, but is also a best seller.

FYI, last year a beautiful BBC Sherlock fanart was one the best sellers too. That raises a few questions, because we now even have a proof, one of them being: what's the point of NO Fanart Prints policy when it's obviously not being followed/selectively followed by the site itself and there are proofs of fanart prints being sold?

From FAQ #743: "You may be seeing Fan Art available as prints that are clearly violations. Please note that images submitted through standard print accounts are not checked by our quality control staff until someone orders the print. At this time, the images that violate the prints guidelines (found in the FAQ) will be rejected." Yeah, we see how they are rejected, dozens and dozens of them I've seen definitely being sold for years. :rofl:

Fanart does not stop being fanart when miscategorized to enable Prints. (+ many of them give hints it's a fanart from their title, the description and the work itself, for those who can recognize what it is, so there is no "we didn't know/overlooked it" that can used as excuse)

I love and need dA more than I can describe, but this been bugging me for years, it just isn't right. If policy isn't followed by many artists because the don't know it/don't care/are just using the opportunity because they can (they just want to earn some money with their art), the site at least should and not allow selected (big) number of fanart and celebrity Prints which are definitely being sold because that is not fair to the rest of the community, among other reasons. What just wrote might cost me a ban after 6 years of being here if someone doesn't like me "exposing" dA, but this had to go out. It would be wonderful to get some long awaited explanations and acceptable excuses for this, or even better: let us all sell fanart!:D But that will never happen.

Btw, congrats Best Sellers! Gorgeous works and well deserved! :clap:

Dude, and all this time I've been ignoring fan art prints thinking, "Oh, they'll catch that." Now I have to report those too? Dude, its not worth it anymore. :iconotlplz: Why have rules when they can't keep up with it themselves?

It's not that they can't keep up. After all it wouldn't be a difficult task to crack down on that alicexz girl but instead admins would rather play favorites. The Fan Art rule DA has must be a complete sham when $taff knowingly turn a blind eye to one of their own Volunteer offenders. It's illegal but they clearly don't care or maybe they think we're all too stupid to notice how bogus their policy is. :grump:

Great! :thumbsup:
I think it would be cool if we could see print sale statistics. :) Maybe not on individual deviations, but just a general area to go (like the +today) page, where there would be statistics based on print sales. :D

Couldn't you promote the less successful artists and the most popular? I feel that everyone deserves to be recognized for their hard work and contributions to the world of :devart:...

Ya know, that's really nice but what about the artists who have been here 8 years, dumped cash into your business and have only made $3.03 in profit?!

It's great that they are top sellers - hard to compete when us peons get overlooked! Thanks dA this makes me feel MUCH better about giving you my hard earned cash.

There is no guarantee you'll earn lots of money through the site by being here for 8 years and buying lots of products. Think about using the site and buying their products because you want to, not because you think it'll pay off with lots of art sales. :) In the end, people are going to buy your art because they like it, not because of how much time you've spent on dA or how many products you've bought. :D

You missed the whole point.... Promoting those who are hot sellers leaves us little ones busting our butts trying to get a wee bit of recognition. When there are pages of "hot sellers" why would anyone want to look further? I do buy art because I want to, not because I'm expecting it to pay off. It just gets frustrating when the "Gods" of dA are put on a pedestal while us little people struggle to get noticed.

Hmm, you have a good point actually. The artworks featured aren't difficult to find in the prints shop. :O But there was an up-and-coming section, which is a bonus.

Anyway, I think you should take a look at ^thorns's Complaint Challenge Contest. It's about taking a complaint (in this instance, lots of promotion for big print sellers and none for others) and doing something about it. :) Maybe you could try finding under-appreciated prints yourself, and compile them into a feature? Maybe you could start a new prints group for unpopular prints? Maybe you could start a contest encouraging people to find an under-appreciated print which they'd like on their wall, and winners will receive that print as a prize? Maybe you have a better idea? :D Give it a go, because things will only get better if you do something about the problem! :highfive:
You could also win a prize for yourself as a part of the challenge!

Promote artists who are not best sellers. They need it please.
I am not saying these artists are not worthy I am saying there are others just as worthy who never stand a chance...
