If you find I've left a comment about a photo being more appropriate in another category than "Artistic Nude", it's not a personal attack. The GMs over the years have been clear about what belongs in Artistic Nude, and if I made a comment about your submission, it's because I feel that under the guidelines the AN GMs have made, your photo(s) belong in a different category.

Now, people will have two reactions when I do this. They either say "oh, I had no idea my photo which shows part of a butt cheek could go in glamor" and the tone of their reply ranges from indifferent to appreciative. Then there are those who react as if I just took a kitten and threw it off a tall building. "HOW DARE YOU SAY THIS WOMAN IN A THONG BIKINI IS NOT AN ARTISTIC NUDE! I WILL KILL YOU WITH DEATH!" and then block me from even being able to reply. I suspect those types of people are the ones who are using the Artistic Nude category as a vehicle to gain more views by trying to use faux nudity as a way to attract people.

The Artistic Nude GMs have been very careful in explaining what does and does not belong in AN. You may dislike that I point out your work is better placed elsewhere, but more than likely a GM will agree with me. Like it or hate it, you may find your submission is moved regardless of how you feel about my comments.

Here's the links to the Artistic Nude GMs journals regarding what does and does not belong in the Artistic Nude category in case you think I'm making this stuff up:…………

Once again, someone posts a comment and then blocks me.

"*Thaddeas: Hi

Before I posted my feet pics i browsed the site.

I met many many many feet photos in the category Artistic Nude/other !!!!"

In response - if all they are is pictures of feet, they don't belong there either. They belong in Fetish or Other.

You're so jealous. Its obvious.
These guys get to take pictures of beautiful naked women for a living and you...criticize them. Yeah, sounds like jealousy to me.

Uhm, I'm only pointing out that the pictures belong in a different category. I'm not saying anything bad about the photos.

And you call yourself a "critique" yet you lack the intelligence to be one.

How insightful you are to measure intellect through a few paragraphs of text from someone you know nothing about.

Stop trolling the nude category to collect photos of respected photographers that have been on DA for years and have built a steady and faithful following. You don't even have the decency to post a profile photo.

For your journal post you must realize that the majority of the GM/Mod's in the Nudes section contribute regularly. So if there was a problem they would have already said something to the masses.

You have a moot point!

I am not trolling. I have already posted numerous links to AN GM journals which have publicly addressed their concerns over what belongs in AN, and what doesn't, so you are incorrect in your assumption that they have not issued any statement regarding miscategorized photos.
