I voted other. I think rather than removing collections, the artists themselves should be granted the ability to remove their own art from collections they don't want it in.

I'm really on the fence about this.

On one hand, you have rights and I believe it's everyone's right to have an opinion on what they think is good just as much as what they think is bad.
On the other hand, people are abusing those rights on purpose because they can. I can't say rules or regulations would completely stop abuse, but if certain words weren't allowed to be used, like "shit", it would curb some of the abuse. Those people would still be able to have an opinion, but it would be less offensive to some.

Again, on one hand I think some people just need to grow a thicker skin, realize the irony of someone faving their art just to call it shit, or realize that most of those people just do it to get a response and that they're falling for it.
While on the other hand I think collections should be reportable since some are used in a harassing way. Leave it up to the staff to determine if it's really harassment or not.

By "certain words weren't allowed to be used, like "shit"", I meant a word censoring filter. Some sites have a filter that checks for certain words and if you use one, it will deny you and won't let you use it.

I voted against demeaning titles, but there should also be some guidelines. Random collections are... random.

I think guidlines would be good, and I agree about the not having insulting titles (although if you do that people could name them things like 'most amazing art EVAR!!!!!111!' and be sarcastic about it.)

The only reason I see to there beeing rules about collection is about the title. If the title is disrespectful to the artists I can agree to a rule. But I see no reason why there can't be a colletction with simply random pictures.
I sort of agree with ~JBantha that you are allowed to collect what you want the way you want it. As long as it respects the artists and lets not forget the models.

I think we should be able to easily report things we don't find appropriate or that we find demeaning. :nod:

I haven't seen any collections at all. If your photos are collected by someone else, are you allowed to say no to that? Do you even know if it's happened? We should be able to accept or reject being collected.

I wish people would be a little more thoughtful in what they call their collections. Even something like 'female nude beauty' would be more acceptable than ';pussy'.

It sucks. So many people DO appreciate and respect nude models, but sadly it's the ones who don't that seem to be more vocal about their opinions :(

Yeah, I hate those ghost emotes ^^;

Anyway,

Only to prevent collections with a blatantly insulting title or theme.

I see titles like that also, and I think it's just wrong. Why put something in a collection when it's only being made fun of? I use my collections as an organization system, to find things I've faved more easily, like "Drawings" and "Photography".

My collections are mostly themed by concept rather than type of art, but I do my best to keep it respectful. Hopefully no-one is too offended by my 'beautiful people' and 'oral fixation' collections :aww:

I think there sould be something to stop people from making albums markes "hot pussy" "sexy lezbos" ect.

But personally i have always wanted to make a collection named "shit work that makes my eyes bleed" and put some of the juk nk i see submitted in it...so i guess im torn.

"Only to prevent collections with a blatantly insulting title or theme"

I'm fine with no rules at all, but I do think that collections with blatantly insulting titles (like 'Complete shit' or 'Crap stuff';) shouldn't be permitted or encouraged because they could put people off using dA at all.
