  1. We passed 600 members!

  2. Who: MangutartWhere: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/mangutart/ When: May 19th, 2019. What: I saw their commission price sheet while browsing FA's front page. The prices were great and the loose, sketchy style was perfect for a commission idea I'd been holding onto for a while. I asked about a slot on the submission, the sent a Note with the information. They replied very quickly to all messages, sent a WIP, asked clarifying questions--just overall it was clear they were very focused on the commission and wanting it to turn out well. I am extremely happy with the resulting art and the experience overall. I'll definitely be back to them in the future for more art! Finished SFW commission below.
  3. Who: puppisama Where: https://www.deviantart.com/puppisama What: I posted on the deviantArt forums looking to get a reference sheet done for an anthro feline character of mine, asking prospective artists to leave art examples and prices in the replies. puppisama was one of the artists who replied. I liked their style and the price was within my budget, so I contacted them to discuss further details. I provided them with previous art of the character to work from, showing their markings and details. They provided several WIPs [sketch, lines, a couple of colored WIPs] and completed requested changes very quickly [removing paw pads from hands once and correcting the spelling of the character's name on the finished ref]. It was a really good experience and I'm extremely happy with the finished art! SFW reference below.
  4. I am dumb and have forgotten where to ask for a new positive review thread.  I looked through all kinds of forum sections but can't find the request post again...

      Howdy!  The forums have been updated to allow individuals to start their own threads.

      Hope that saves a bit of time for the mods having to make the threads 🙂

      Hey, is there a way to edit the post?

      I forgot to mention how long the commission took in my positive review post and would like to add it to the main post, if possible.

  5. And we've reached 500 members!

  6. I've commissioned Pronography @ FA several times over the past year and a half. They're always very prompt in responding to commission inquiries, questions, etc. Art ETAs vary, but I don't think I've had to wait more than a month, personally, for a commission. Their prices are incredibly affordable for the quality. All in all, I find them very easy to deal with and will happily be going back to them often in the future. Attached are some SFW commissions by them. I've also had NSFW pieces done, but this isn't the place for thoe.

    The new AutoModerator is spiffy! Great idea and I hope that frees up some time for you guys.
  10. Wow, that's... a first for me.  This is very sad.

    I had paid for a custom clay figurine on YCH.Commishes in January.  I was quoted a few months' wait time, which I found was perfectly reasonable.  I hadn't contacted the artist since because it's still within that ETA.

    I woke up to this message on the YCH.Commishes thread:

    Very sad. :C  Obviously leaving their name out of this.  But this is just such a... unique experience, I thought I'd post it on my profile here.

    Great idea with the resolved tag and TY for implementing it so quickly!
  12. The issue is that you're contacting someone who has nothing to do with this business transaction simply because they've been commenting on the beware. Again, it's unprofessional behavior.
  13. And now she has sent me a second Note on my FA account apologizing for the first one.
  14. Chesta sent me a Note on my FurAffinity because of the last comment I posted above. Also incredibly unprofessional... Edit: I don't know if I should share it here? It's almost accusatory, honestly. And it certainly makes me feel uncomfortable that she's contacting people outside of the OP because of this beware.
  15. Chesta just posted another journal to her FA. Once again full of overly personal information, promises to change how she does business, etc.
  16. Eyy, we broke 400 members!

  17. I agree with the two above that it's time for some sort of ultimatum here.

    I like that you've changed usernames to match the colors of mod/admin/etc. for those people. Makes identifying them as such quicker.
  19. I'm sorry this was outside of the PayPal claim window. I hope you eventually get the badge, but I'm not too confident that will happen. Definitely a warning sign when an artist says there's been progress but won't show proof of it.
  20. Chesta posted a new journal to her FA a few minutes ago, stating she's taken on too much work, she will refund some current commissioners, she'll work to not end up with such a massive queue in the future. I... will believe that if and when it happens. Admitting there's an issue is a good first step, though. [Not sure if linking the journal would be okay? I can link it in another comment if mods say it's okay. It does bring up a bit of personal stuff, though I suppose I could screencap and edit out the personal bits so it's only business-focused?]
  21. The ultimatum guide in the resources section of the site gave me the confidence to give an ultimatum to someone who I commissioned in August and still hadn't delivered despite offering me many promises over the months.

    In January, I sent them a message laying out what I had ordered, what I expected [either a refund or the art done within a week], and what would happen if the expectations weren't met [a PayPal claim being filed].

    They never read the message.  A week later, I sent another message informing them that a PayPal claim had been filed.  They didn't read that second message.  They never responded to the PayPal claim, either.

    PayPal refunded me in full earlier this week.

    It was my first time ever filing a PayPal claim and was a bit nervous.  But it all worked out.

    The resources and advice here on AB are indispensable, I'm super grateful for them.

  22. Kitsuko on FA was offering $10 colored fullbodies for an Iron Artist challenge. The art was a collab between them and Follower_of_Dionysus. All contact I had during the transaction was with Follower_of_Dionysus, all through Notes except for me claiming a slot on the sales journal. Although my actual contact was with the other half of the collab, it's clear that the two work very well together. There was no real delay in the process when the art changed hands for the other person to work on. A very positive first experience for me working with them and I'll happily go back to them for more art in the future. ? SFW completed piece is below.
  23. Follower_of_Dionysus on FA was offering $10 colored fullbodies for an Iron Artist challenge. The art was a collab between them and Kitsuko. All contact I had during the transaction was with Follower_of_Dionysus, all through Notes except for me claiming a slot on the sales journal. Follower_of_Dionysus was very quick in gathering info, giving payment details, etc. I received several WIPs, all unprompted by me but very appreciated. I got one for each stage--sketch, inks, colors--and was asked for my approval of them. No changes were needed at any stage. A very positive first experience for me working with them and I'll happily go back to them for more art in the future. ? SFW completed piece is below.
  24. Yes, I'd include that new note as well. It's just further proof of poor behavior as an artist. And I agree with @Bornes about making another beware.

    No worries, I understand. I'll think about changing my AB bookmark to the categories page to make it easier for me to sort to my liking.
