Did You Know? - My Groups Page, COPPA

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 28, 2013, 6:16 PM

My Groups Page


Did you know that you can see all the groups that you're part of (either as an Admin or a Member) without installing the Groups widget on your profile?



You can do that by using this link:

http://****.deviantart.com/mygroups
(replacing **** with your username)


This works for every deviant as well. Just replace the username to those you'd like to see what groups they are in. :D

How do I deal with a COPPA?


COPPA stands for Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and you can find more about that here.

FAQ #696: How does deviantART comply with COPPA?

If the user admits to being underage in a comment or on their profile: do not point it out to them, instead, go to the Help Desk and file a COPPA Report.

If the user admits to being underage on dAmn, point it out to a Community Volunteer if present. If there is no CV present, look for one in #help and let that CV know where the user is admitting to being underage. If you can't find a CV, copy the logs and and file a COPPA Report to the Help Desk. While the report won't be accepted, the user will still be looked into. :)

Whatever you do, don't tell the user that they're underage and will be banned. This will encourage the user to remove or hide any evidence associated with their being underage and is counter productive to dA enforcing the COPPA law.

That's how to look up groups. I'd tried using just "/groups" and it didn't work. ^^; Thank you for the information!

I don't know much about literature sorry. But the Literature Forum has a monthly critique thread for giving and getting critique, to the top of that page :) That may help!

The MyGroups thing is quite useful, unfortunately it was quite a shock that I'm a part of too many groups... ahaha..

Thanks for adding in the COPPA information, quite useful to this community.

Yes to COPPA info! So many tell the users they will get in trouble for being under 13 years old like someone can magically make themselves a year or two older. There should be a FAQ called quite simply "Avoid the Drama" and list the most common drama-creators with the resolution of "shut up and report it" listed for each one.

The same can be said for any copyright issues too - shut up and report it. It is so pointless when people point it out and just cause drama and arguments. Even if the person doesn't know it is wrong (same for underage users), they won't like being called out on it and most likely defend their actions anyways.

A great article as usual :)

One small thing though: not everyone even knows what "COPPA" is, me for example and I *have* two kids but I don't live in the USA, so it might be an idea to add that to the article :)
