By now I hope you saw Wix.com's note here to all of us:

www.deviantart.com/notificatio…

or read the PR releases on Google.

Seems like for $36 million, deviantArt has been purchased by Wix.com, which is a website design company looking to develop, diversify, and expand its platforms and services to its users. According to the PR I read:

(techcrunch.com/2017/02/23/webs…)

Wix.com will be making dA's art galleries available to Wix's other platform users to add to their website building and design options. I'm not sure what this means in terms of payments to artists here, or to privacy and copyright issues. I'm also not sure what this means to those of us in the kink quarter of the dA community. I'm sure we will eventually find out. In the meantime, I'd heartily suggest that artists take steps to protect and back up their submissions, and be prepared to delete all artwork and deactivate their accounts, if things don't go well.

There is an extensive discussion of the legal concerns for dA artists, found at:

news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1…. I strongly suggest everyone read it.

Let's see what happens.

And here's the most recent updated dA announcement:

DeviantArt and Wix: With a Kindred SpiritEarlier today, Wix.com announced its acquisition of DeviantArt, and I want you to know how incredibly positive this development is for our community, for the platform, and for all artists who haven’t yet become deviants!

A Disclaimer. You might want to read this.

This page is not for the squeamish, prudish, or sexually repressed/repressive. Most of the writings and drawings found here are “transgressive” in the broadest sense: fetishes, bondage, satire, political incorrectness, etc., in various combinations – all for the purposes of creating fictions and fantasies.

This gallery is intended to be “mature.” If you are a minor (younger than 18 years of age), and/or are offended by nudity, violence, or artistic representations of explicit sexual activity between humans, then I suggest you find another gallery to visit. On the other hand, if you are an adult and feel that human sexuality and sexual behavior in all its variety is fascinating and ought to be celebrated, then this gallery is likely your cup of tea.

This site’s purpose is for displaying work that is exclusively my own. By definition, all characters are original unless specifically designated otherwise. All characters and other representations of humans in my drawings and writings found on this site are intended by me and so should be assumed by any reader/viewer to be at least 18 years old – “of legal age” – in accordance with deviantArt’s Terms of Service (TOS). There are no underage characters here in sexual or abusive situations, and no intended prejudice, bigotry, misanthropy, misogyny, or hate language, either.

The scenarios, situations, and descriptions in my drawings and stories do not represent reality – they are intended to be fiction, fantasy, perhaps even alternate universes – and they should stay that way. I do not condone any behavior described here (or anything like it), and in particular do not condone violence directed at women at any time for any purpose.

If you are intending to role-play or otherwise act out any of the scenarios found in this gallery as consenting adults, be advised that I personally neither offer support for, nor advocate against, such consensual activity, but simply repeat that all of the scenarios contained in this gallery are intended to be fantasy.

One note to those who wish to fave or copy: each and every artistic object in this gallery – stories, drawings, sketches, etc. – is my artistic property, covered by the international Berne Convention on Copyright as well as copyright laws of the United States. I heartily subscribe to "fair use," of course, which means that I support visitors faving my work if they find it attractive and aesthetically pleasing. But "fair use" extends only to personal and private possession. It does not include re-posting my work in any other person's gallery without my permission, nor representing any of my art or writing as belonging to anyone but myself. I post here because dA's TOS provides me with some legal protection along these lines, and because I believe in a sharing and supportive artistic community. Please do not violate the privilege.

I currently have no website, blog, or Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or other social media accounts. If necessary, that might change in the future, but I hope not. So, in the event that, for some reason or unforeseen future occurrence, this gallery site goes down, please reach out to me at: dannysuling@yahoo.com. That way, I'll be able to retain and maintain connections. Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for the compliment (and the favs). Yes, I'm afraid that when I let myself get really into a story line I create images that simply can't be posted here at dA. Perhaps someday I'll open up an account at another site that is more accommodating. If so, I'll let everyone know! Again, many thanks!
