deviantART is not deleting accounts.

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 8:55 AM

LITTLE UPDATE: You are NOT going to be banned if you copy and pasted the 'warning' to your journal before being told the information is false. Quit asking me if you're going to be banned. You have nothing to worry about if you haven't done anything wrong.


Hey guys! There's a bit of a nasty rumor spreading throughout the community that the staff will be removing 'wasted'  accounts on May 21st, and that you should copy and paste the 'warning' to your journal if you want your account to be safe from deletion. This is totally false and should not be spread around dA. If you happen to see a misinformed deviant sharing that information in their journal feel free to link them to my journal here. :)

Any official dA news will be announced at hq. If you're receiving notes or comments about this false mass-deletion from an individual claiming to be deviantART staff, please block them and report them to the helpdesk. Thanks guys!
