[Resolved] My Art is Getting Stolen, Please Help!

EDIT 2018-01-25: The matter appears to have been resolved and my art deleted from shotachan. See my update post here.

EDIT 2018-01-24: Last reply from shotachan staff was the categorical refusal to delete anything and the suggestion I should give them my art for free because they were going to steal it anyway.
Last I saw was shotacat deleting all comments supporting my delete request and then the account I made to make my complaint got banned. Silence since then. So I assume they are not going to honour my request.
Instead now they are trying to shut down my official sites, succeeded with deviantart by mass-reporting my content. So what is your plan? If I don’t want to give you my art no one is allowed to get it? You certainly only have the best for the shota art community as a whole in your mind. Well, go on, do your worst! Your actions speak louder than anything I could ever do. That definitely is the best way to convince artists that you are actually nice people and that they should hand you their art and trust you as business partners!

First of all, I want to point out that I don’t hold any grudge against the people who actually posted my art at shotachan. They all were very nice and understanding and immediately agreed to stop sharing my art there. They are not at fault, the people running shotachan.net are to blame.

In general, I am perfectly fine with people sharing my art, as long as they don’t claim it as their own or make money with it.

However, there are two exceptions to this: Because of personal disagreements with the site owners I do not want my art shared in the shotachan and 3dboys communities. I expressedly forbade both of them to host any of my artwork on their sites. Since in both cases their reaction was to ban me, I assumed they were in agreement about that at least.

I recently had to learn that while I am still banned as a person at shotachan, they steal my art and staff refuses to honour my request to delete it. That is not OK. Especially not since my boycott of shotachan started when they did the exact same thing to another artist four years ago.

If you like my art and are a member of that community, please help and tell staff that their actions are not OK. Thank you!

EDIT: Since shotacat “accidentally” deleted Josh31’s post saying he was going to honour my request and delete what he had posted of my art and lasto’s post agreeing with my request as well as me thanking them when he locked the thread, I want to repeat myself here: Thank you both!
Nice to see that you are still the same old asshole as four years ago, shotacat!

      I’m blocked on all his social media accounts and never welcomed back on shotachan.net. On December 6, shotacat messaged me on Twitter saying he’s going to get the authorties involved. You should of never been banned! What an aggorant asshole!

        I’m not sure I understand what you’re fighting with him about, but be careful! Shotacat is spiteful and likes to harass people he doesn’t like.

    They deleted the threads with your art. You should really chill out dude. They never sold anything of yours either. Everything they sell they do with the partnership of the artist.

    Should probably let it go and stop spamming people on pixiv about something that’s been resolved.

    Makes you look like a crazy asshole tbh.

      I can’t verify that and what I stated in the edit above is the last communication I received from shotachan.
      So, I am right to assume you are thebrushking? Being affiliated with the site are you speaking in an official capacity representing them? Are you going to honour future delete requests for my art?

      I’d assume you wouldn’t want to give a crazy asshole like me the publicity so you should be happy to agree.

      I’m not surprised, to be honest. The only thing shotacat cares about is negative publicity – or an actual legal threat. But he knows fully well that many artists, myself included, aren’t US residents or even live somewhere where the legality of their art is questionable. So those artists prefer to remain anonymous, severely limiting their legal options.
      It’s sad really, I can only say good things about the community there, shotachan would be a great place if it were run by decent people.
