So will critique blogs be banned ? For example, someone has a blog you can send your OC from something like Steven universe. You submit your OC to be critiqued but the review ends up with your OC being a 1/5 or something so you decide to report the blog as harassment due to the negative review of it even if the review was done respectfully without any insults.
Nope! If someone reports a critique after submitting it and accepting your terms, it’s unlikely to result in any issues for the critique blog. I’ll give two examples:
Example A: You critique a user’s OC based on the color scheme being too muddied and on it having a non-distinct silhouette, giving it a 1/5 and offering some suggestions on how to improve the design. The user reports you for harassment. We review the case and give them a warning not to send in false reports, as well as a suggestion to steer clear of critique blogs if they aren’t comfortable with hearing criticism.
Example B: You critique a user’s OC by saying that it “sucks” and that the user should “stop drawing, seriously, this shit is offensively ugly”. The user reports you for harassment. We review the case and give you a warning, as well as some advice on how to be a bit kinder to someone who reached out for a critique and not insults.
Of course, there’s a lot of other ways it could happen! But criticism is not harassment if it’s done right.
