Lovely - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
And to further irritate me today, its become apparent that someone went through my ENTIRE photobucket account and reported a shitload of images just to get my goat.

Whoever you are, you have way too much time on your hands.

WTF? Reported them for what?

Remember when my afri cola afrika corps logo comparison didnt show up anymore? Stuff like that, plus anything remotely nude, INCLUDING non pornographic HUMAN nudes as well as furry ones.

Even my fat thorn on a bike got pulled. Its just a butt ;P

Actually.. I think Photobucket look through images and remove ones that go against their TOS, because my photobucket account is totally private and I've had images removed.

So it's possible it was just photobucket staff?

I dunno. Things seemed weirdly coincidental concerning recent personal events, I get the feeling someone deliberately went on a reporting spree given what was reported.

That and the fact that they pulled my fat thorn on a bike pic. The only thing bad about that is the tremendous size of her ass.

I gotta say..

I really fail to understand WHY everyone always goes after the 'Fat Thorn on a bike" drawing like it's some godawful thing. It's cute and absolutely harmless! I don't get why you always seem to have trouble with that image...people need to unwedge the stick from thier ass and realize that there is NOTHING explicit about it. It's just a wolf with some junk in her trunk ;)

And erf...photobucket staff combs through the accounts for 'questionable' material? Isn't that somehow a violation of the user's privacy?

Re: I gotta say..

I wondered that myself actually. Its..just...a..butt. Nothing more. You see more cheek on the coppertone sunscreen ads.

And besides, theres far worse images I could get thumped for, yet they seem to be "ok"? hurh?

Make your account private, and password access only. Then they can't even see your stuff.

I honestly thought I had, now I feel so...omg..exposed! :O

Ellonwye said she had stuff removed even on her private account though :O

Photobucket preens through other people's galleries often to find TOS violations. I had several things of mine removed, some stuff from a year ago that only recently got removed.

Get a furtopia.org account. They are mostly for webhosting, but I've seen people use their service for storage. Benefit is they don't mind the risque stuff and they're very generous about allotted space. :P

To me it seems like it was intentional. But I'm paranoid. It reminds me of eBay auctions I've seen removed: it was an old scenario where eBay used to pull any auction that was reported (this is different now!), without checking, and this led to competitors abusing the system. The Thorn on a bike one would be a perfect example in that case - someone reports it, they take it down without looking. I cannot see the staff taking down cartoon cutesy ass crack of their own accord, unless it was reported and they just insta-ganked it.

It's really fucking sad to report a Photobucket account, though. I mean, half the mature auctions on Furbid are from Photobucket, everyone uses it to host their pr0nz....

When will people find something better to do with their time ? :(

Do you have a paid LJ account? maybe host the stuff on the photo section if you do?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: September 4th, 2006 06:45 am (UTC) (Link)
I do but the reason i dont use it anymore (i used to) is because I can't image tag things on forums with the LJ URL because theres no ".jpg" or anything at the end, just a string of numbers =/

*Points to the user above.* I was about to suggest the same thing. I use the LJ photo section to host every picture that I post to my LJ. Like friends filters you have total control over who gets to see your pictures. No annoying TOS stuff from Photobucket to put up with, or annoying people trying to report your images. Since you have a paid account with extra icons, you should have about 2 gigs of space to play with, like I do. ^^

It may be that someone reported just one of the images and they decided to take a look through the rest of your stuff and pulled them at the same time.
I still think it sucks if someone did bother to report one image but at least it's not as bad as someone systematically going through them all just for the purpose of pissing you off.
