Will you tell me why my friend was banned?
Please do not contact the help desk to ask why your friend was banned, as we will not respond to such queries. If your friend has been banned, you may wish to ask them yourself to enquire as to why they were banned, but be prepared for some entertaining (and possibly untrue) reasons!
At deviantART, we prefer to keep the discussions about bans private, however there may be times where you see a member of staff discussing a ban reason in the community, particularly where there is a need to return integrity to a situation.
