dA was banned for 8 days in China. Please read a previous news post if you haven't http://news.deviantart.com/article/65007/ .
There is no official statement (to my knowledge so far) as to the reason why the ban was released. And we do not know how long this will last.

Censorship does still exist in China mainland (maybe to an extent that will surprise an average person from western background).

I hope everyone can live a constructive life with no need to
