I know you're technically not supposed to ask to be scouted, but how else am I going to get my art into the portal? I mean, my art may not be the best by any means, but it seems rather insane that it should be locked onto my user page when I've seen a few TOTAL CRAP art make it into the portal... It's kind of annoying to say the least.
Put it in your signature (well you already did that) and say "View & Review my art please". That's one method.
Another method is to try the Review Request Club (can't find the link).
I don't see the problem with asking anyway, at least if your art truly meets the standards of the NG art portal there shouldn't be an issue. I think those that ask simply risk a penalty if they abuse that priviledge, and that 'abuse' is the result of asking (multiple times) to have CRAP art scouted.
It's VERY similar to ask Wade to make him make you a mod; the fear of the abuse of power given.
Besides, I have seen users that have lost motivation to post to the art portal with the loose scouting system being abused. If more people ask, then it means that they want to abuse the feature and that will result in less contributors in the art portal. Like I said, the scouting system is crap.

This is kind of creepy (to some extent)...
If your unscouted can you be scouted once again or are you just permanently banned from the art portal?
You can be scouted again if you are unscouted. Only Wade I believe can permanently ban you from the Art Portal (but only if you repeatedly break the rules). Besides, I bet nobody would scout rule-breakers.
In short, yes you can be scouted again.
