I'm recycling this old journal for posting something about the lotteries and raffles on Deviantart, that were stated as "Outlaws" by the community opps
in this journal here: [link]
On that time some deviantarts (and me too) were in doubt if a art as prize, such, drawings, sketch, paintings etc would not be allowed. Me and some other deviants even asked on the comments on that very same journal, but we got no reply.
So i tried to ask about this in notes to 4 different admins here on deviantart that make part of the Community Opps. They are $fourteenthstar
but they gave me no reply since July 10th. So by last i tried to ask in the Help Desk and here is the aswer of $realitysquared
(in request number #376025) :"Thank you for contacting deviantART customer support, your ticket has been transferred to me for assistance.
As far as lotteries or raffles are concerned the only real restriction is that you may not offer cash, currency or deviantART Points as a prize. Non-monetary or non-Points prizes are typically acceptable.
I would not, however, offer pageviews as a form of prize as deviantART employs systems which will detect and block certain levels of artificial pageviews so you may find it difficult or impossible to deliver on such a prize.

So here it is guys, for anyone who still had any doubt about giving art as prize in a lottery or raffle, it is allowed o/. Only thing really not allowed is money, pageviews or DA points.
Go happy !!! Everybody get back to the plans of having a lottery or raffle with art as prize ;D and feel free to spread this o/
