Good day fellow Deviant Artists.
It has come to our, the admins, attention that there is some unrest within the group about pairing OCs with Sexual Offenderman. We the admins would like to make our intentions for Sexual Offenderman perfectly clear so that nothing can be misconstrued and no one can be mislead.
We, the Rose Guard, completely and fully endorse creating and shipping original characters with Sexual Offenderman. He was made to be shipped with and fantasized about in whatever way any of you so choose.
We are not saying that you must accept and like every OC that comes into The-Smexy-Slender archives, we only ask that each of you respect each other’s works and ideas. You are within your rights to not like something and express it in a polite, constructive way.
If there is someone you do not appreciate speaking to, there is a block/ignore option built into Deviant Art itself. We implore you to make use of it.However, we here in The-Smexy-Slender group will not tolerate bullying, bashing, or witch hunting.
That is not what this group is about, that is not what Sexual Offenderman is about, and such behavior will not be tolerated.
We have seen back and forth in-fighting that has been occurring not only within the archives but in personal journals that are being passed around as well. We had thought that surely it would come to a peaceful resolution at some point, but it has now escalated much farther than anticipated and we can no longer sit by and try to quell the fighting with words alone.
We would like to ask that this stop immediately. This is non negotiable. If this does not stop, we will be forced to ban and blacklist any and all offending members. You will no longer be allowed to be a part of any of the group’s activities nor will any of your works be added to the archives. Furthermore, if the need calls for it, all works that have been accepted from those banned will also be deleted from the archives.
We politely oblige each of you to please be courteous and respect each other’s personal tastes and interests. If there are any problems that any of you may have with another member, The Rose Guard is here to answer and listen to your case, but you must bring evidence of offense and abuse in order for us to act. We cannot go on your word alone and we cannot allow harassment of fellow members.
Please remember, if someone is bothering you, report them and ignore/block them. Aggression towards another deviant comes in many forms and it is easy for us, and anyone else, to pick up on that. If you are not actively aggressive towards another deviant, you do not need to worry about any of this. If you would like further clarification, please contact us. Because knowledge is power.
If this is brought up again, we will be forced to act.
