If you're wondering what this is about and why we're being a little subversive - there's a "LITTLE KNOWN" freemium (more like paid site by now) site that has an extremely large ton of underage and borderline CSAM content.
I've OBFUSCATED the name as much as possible.
THIS MEANS THAT EARTH & DUSK, CIVITAI AND ANYONE ELSE READING THIS ARTCILE ARE NOT LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CONTENT SHARED WITHIN THIS ARTICLE OR WEBSITES BARELY MENTIONED. THIS IS A PRIVACY FOCUSED AND ToS FOCUSED WARNING AND IS NOT GUARANTEED IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM.
While SOME generative content of minors is contested to be "within reason if the generations are wholesome bla bla bla" - the fact is, it's not about the WHOLESOME content itself - its' about attracting the wrong kinds of people to be able to generate the WRONG kinds of content.
Permission to Reprint
So if you from today do not see OUR content both Earthnicity & Duskfallcrew - you have VALID rights to now REPRINT ANYTHING of ours that you do not see on THISSPECIFICSITEWHICHIMNOTPROPERLYNAMING from this day following.
HELL - for that reason alone? Don't count it as a reprint, in fact - try counting a few as exclusive and try and make some money off it. Nevermind, there's an extremely dangerous tax verification process that means you're putting your personal data at risk, and the staff will give you PDFs at random to shove you into their payment processing that barely works. (Last I heard paypal isn't working for them?)
What about the Tax Verify?
Their tax verification form entirely consists of "please send your legal name, your tax ID and your address along with your international bank swift and BSB codes, and your bank details".
That's why the "Privacy Matters" article exists.
Yes, I know i'm being salty.
Ugh but. CSAM?
But I can promise you: Asian sites largely don't care, and right now I care more about protecting the livelihood of USERS and Creators.
AND largely while I understand the team may have every non malicious intention?
They consistently spam events for users when their site's half broken, they spam my TikTok - and while back when the site was FIRST STARTING spam was understood to get creators in?
We've been on the site since june.
All of our social media is "duskfallcrew" -- If you're not following your creators back on TikTok and you're trying to message them, it's gonna go back into filtered and we're gonna ignore it in case it's a hacker. It's not anything against the account in question it's personal security lol.
The Model types in question:
OH and you wanna see what we saw?
"TeenGirlMix XL" - I've semi obfuscated the URL because it is indeed against ToS here at CivitAI, and i'm not trying to share the item to get anyone "EXCITED" - i'm trying to warn about the content.
It's against Stable Diffusion ToS, it's largely against MOST sites ToS.
I'm not talking the wholesome pics that are on an SDXL model that are for general realism, tho are within THISSPECIFICSITEWHICHIMNOTPROPERLYNAMING 's ToS for the most part, there's nothing INHERITLY WRONG with those - it'd be against CivitAI ToS yes - but differentiating sites - inclusive of midjourney have different ToS.
Do i want THISSPECIFICSITEWHICHIMNOTPROPERLYNAMING to FAIL?
So is this War?
Let's not make this a "DOG PILE ON THISSPECIFICSITEWHICHIMNOTPROPERLYNAMING AND MAKE EVERY CREATOR LEAVE" - they supposedly have "10 million users" I don't know if that's the discord or otherwise, but the issue isn't just their staff it's the userbase, you go in and you report the NSFW and underage IN PUBLIC without a ticket open - and their users whine it's REALLY LEGAL AND TOTALLY SAFE and every country lets you make CSAM out in the open. (I've had this argument like 10 times in THISSPECIFICSITEWHICHIMNOTPROPERLYNAMING 's discord - staff don't do anything)
