As some of you may have noticed before I just checked it, my fanfic France x Reader- Drops of Wine (Lemon) was taken down. My heart sank to my tummy when I read the note and I wanted to cry.
I'm not exactly sure why it happened and I'm sorry it did.
I just sent a policy inquiry to the Help Desk and am waiting for a response.
A quick question, was the Mature Filter on it? I thought I marked as "Mature Content."
If I accidently didn't, I can see why they removed it. But that was an honest mistake and was not intended.
Otherwise, I'm not sure. The note said the Staffer that removed it labeled it as 'pornographic imagery.'
Here's what the note actually said:
"The work(s) listed below have been removed by staff due to a violation of deviantART policy or because its theme or content was judged unacceptable. Your deviantART submissions must obey certain guidelines and restrictions.
If you are uncertain why the submission was removed or if you have any questions or believe this removal to be an error please contact the deviantART Help Desk.

The administrator who deleted your deviation added the following:
A member of staff has reviewed a report concerning this deviation and has found that the content is considered to be pornographic.
FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?
The deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted."
As you all know, it was created for a contest, so now I'm afraid that I'll have to create another one in place of it, unless the contest holder will allow me to email it to them.
I'm still scratching my head about their policy, because they allow some pretty explict pictures and fanfics on DA, but their rules state they don't.
Needless to say, I'm a little frustrasted.
