Just a while ago, i got a PM from the site admin @TomFulp stating that he's locked @StaticSkull who's also known as NightRaid-NG (A name stolen from the anime Akame Ga Kill btw) out of his account for breaking the rules and being a general annoyance and source of problems to everyone including content creators, users and mods as well.
Now you guys might be wondering, did he deserve this? what did he do? and was this the only way to solve this issue? and if you are wondering about the answers to these questions and possibly more then allow me to answer.
First, "Am i the one to blame for having him banned?"
No, 26 people wanted him banned, and they've all contributed to getting him banned. and, he HIMSELF, has contributed to himself getting banned for breaking the rules so much even after being banned several times from all the portals around the site (for example from the audio portal) and then getting unbanned, so he's more than responsible about himself getting banned. now you may be thinking, this wouldn't have happened if i didn't make that post about him, and honestly, even if i didn't, he would have gotten what he deserved from someone else such as the site admins or @WillCamick or anyone else who doesn't like him and what he's doing, for example, the person who started the petition.
Second, "What evidence supports these claims?"
Ask the mods, they have logs of everything he's stolen, the different IPs he's used for his alts which he's used to give himself "positive" feedback on his (honestly) terrible works and so on, and they decided to make this decision based on this evidence. and yes, me, the people who signed the petition and Tom aren't the only ones who decided that he should be banned, the mods themselves who also have problems with him also had something to say about this whole thing.
Third, "Did he deserve this?"
Objectively speaking, yes. he's stole audio, artwork, used alts and plenty more and was banned several times for it since he's been breaking the site rules. and he was well aware of these rules but still decided to break them, so yes, he does deserve this.
Fourth, "Was he really that bad?"
Of course, aside from stealing the character Fay from @WillCamick he's also spammed the forums so much that he currently has about 9500 posts, that mostly consist of either him trying to be funny a little bit too much or posting links to his own content such as his youtube videos and such, for example here's a few of his posts in the selfie thread    if you would like to dig deeper into the thread to see if he's really posted "that" much in it and in the same way he did in the last 3 posts, then go ahead. and also, most of the time whenever he makes some new "content" he would always include so many people that are nearly not even required or actually didn't do anything to contribute to his "projects" for example. why does he do this? obviously because he wants all of these people's fans to see that one of the people they follow is in a new project and then be directed to him in order to gain more fans, while this is just an opinion, it's still true for the most part. he also makes "collabs" that mostly consist of vague themes and broad subjects, like the "fandom" collab, so basically youtube tier compilations about pretty broad subjects with him being the one running these collabs and hence getting the most out of them as the author. i can keep going on and on about this but i think i've already said more than enough to prove that he's pretty "bad" and in all the wrong ways.
Quick note : The links to the selfie thread won't work, "seems like they got deleted"
Fifth, "Should you be mad?"
Now you might be mad about this for one of the following reasons :
1 - You had work to do with him and now he's banned and can't work with you anymore, on this site at least.
If this is the case then i'm sorry for having your time get wasted.
2 - You're mad because of everything he's done.
Which is completely understandable.
3 - He kissed your ass a little bit and you're getting mad because well... ass kissing that's why.
And if this is the case then you're welcome, now you don't have to put up with his ass kissing anymore, and you don't have to defend him despite himself being beyond wrong and more than deserving of everything that's happend. again, you're welcome.
Sixth, "Is this good for Newgrounds?"
Yes in many ways, now we took care of one less spammer, content stealer and general annoyance, a lot of users here didn't like him for his terrible attitude around the forums and in general, and the mods hated him for breaking the rules a little bit too much and giving them a lot of work to do, even more than what they're supposed to do as mods. and the site is now a bit more safe from getting into legal issues since he's not going to be around to steal more content.
So in closing, we're done with his bullshit and he's free to continue to be another site's problem and enjoy getting banned from them as well, and he's free to do what he does best, go around whoring for attention on sites like Youtube by doing videos like "Try not to laugh" or "Monthly Q and A" videos and steal and trace artwork and spam RPG maker games on gamejolt instead of actually making "good" content and putting effort into his works and getting better at his said crafts and sounding less like a pretentious wannabe when he calls himself "Game dev, artist, etc" his choice, so let's hope he makes the right choice now instead of make things even worse than they've become now.
Hope you all have a great day, and thank you for reading.
P.S : if i remember correctly, he's got scouted by a user and decided to scout 4 users before he got unscouted (For like the third time), i only scouted 2 of the guys he scouted and i can't remember the last 2, if you happen to be one of these guys then PM me and we'll discuss getting you back into the art portal. :)
This shit needs to be stopped right now, this is basically stealing from another creator and calling it "inspired content" when it obviously isn't. someone needs to do something about it, which is why i decided to make this post to support the guy because honestly, it doesn't seem like he'll get that many eyes seeing his post and will just end up having his character stolen which is beyond horrible.
ARE YOU AN ARTIST AND WANT TO GET SCOUTED?
Well, this is your chance, link me your works, i'll check them out and see if the quality is good enough and if it is, i'll scout you.
But if not, i'll try to give you as much constructive criticism as possible.
If you're not an artist then you can recommend artists that you think deserve to be scouted right here.
Please keep a few things in mind though :
- I can't scout you if you make things like 5 minute, low effort works or things like madness combat scenes or anything similar, also no photoshop, none of that is actually suitable for the art portal, i didn't decide that btw, submissions like these tend to get their authors (And sometimes the people who scout them) into tons of problems.
- Respect the rules or you and i and many more artists are doomed.
- Make sure you do your best. if you want to upload something like a little doodle or something, then keep it as a sketch to avoid people possibly voting 0 on your works and getting you closer to getting unscouted or anything similar since people hate it when artists post sloppy works to the art portal.
- If you make hentai/Adult content then rate your work "A" but if your work happens to only reach "M" or anything similar don't use NSFW thumbnails. some people might complain about it to the art mods and get you in trouble and this could result in possibly getting your submission removed.
- You need to upload 4 works that aren't flagged as "Sketches" otherwise i won't be able to scout, i'll only be able to recommend you to be in the art portal.
Yes, this is still a thing.
