I'm sure you guys all remember everyone freaking out last week about the raffles/lotteries right? Let me start off by apologizing to all of you that I told you were over reacting and that DA is not a derbis that wouldn't allow raffles which don't require you to pay in (lotteries) etc.. All will be well, I said
Alright, looks like the faq was updated (or is it a brand new one even? I don't know)
FAQ #894: Can I run a lottery, raffle, sweepstakes or other random drawing or game of chance through my DeviantArt account?
Games of chance (such as raffles, lotteries and other random giveaways) and fraudulent activity are prohibited on DeviantArt.
Our principal concerns are to avoid the exploitation of members of DeviantArt, prevent unfair treatment of deviants who are solicited to participate and avoid the appearance of impropriety from offers which are open to abuse as well as the various, and varying, laws restricting or regulating the conduct of games of chance in differing parts of the world.
We encourage gift giving. We encourage trading points for art or art services. We encourage the solicitation of points as donations.
Games of chance, however, solicit with a promise of potential reward and we have no adequate means to confirm that the “game” is conducted fairly or within the requirements of applicable law and because of these concerns we cannot allow them to be run through your DeviantArt account.
Excuse me while I choke on a giant penis! WHAT!?
I'll keep in mind to give any future raffles some circle jerk reasoning so that it won't technically be a raffle, k? Sure, we'll do that!
