pls don't yell at each other in the comments. pls don't yell at me. pls.
  1. For your first question: Were the triangle fur pieces clearly visible on the given references? If no, then you are within your rights to charge for an edit. If yes, then the error should be fixed without charge as it is artist error. The edit price is fair, especially if you do not work in a manner that lends itself to easy editing. (Every little thing I do is on a separate layer for ease of edits. It can be very resource intensive on some computers.) As for other folks editing your work you are within your rights to decline edits, and even file a DMCA against unauthorized edits. The latter is a burn the bridge scenario. Personally, I do not allow edits unless the edits themselves are clearly identified. If they do a poor job, then that's your name that is associated with it. Edit: After a bit of digging (sorry!) it appears that Pokemon does have two triangle spikes as part of their default design. If you're unfamiliar with later gen Pokemon, then it's understandable that it may have come off as a stylistic choice. If it were me I would fix it free of charge given it's part of the default design.
  2. Holy moly. This one is intense. Firstly, never send payment as Friends and Family. Artists who insist clients only send via F&F can have Paypal restrict or even close their account if they're caught abusing it. The fees are business operating fees and should never be shifted to the customer. Second, almost every commission artist has been in a situation where they realized they undercharged. You bite the bullet and remember it for next time. Thank you for this.
  3. I'm honestly surprised it took this long for her to earn a beware given that when I ordered my commission in 2014 she was also having issues with keeping her queue in check. While she has made excellent strides in dealing with it in the past, it doesn't seem to ever significantly get better. Unfortunately, I've unwatched her since she adopted a "no refunds" policy and defended it despite it being highly unethical.
  4. We will stick this as an update to your post!
  5. Artists Beware Moderator Code of Conduct The Duties of a Moderator All moderators listed on the Staff Page fall into one or more of these categories, and will be happy to answer any questions users have. Below are the ranks for moderators and what their duties are: Queue Mods - Review incoming bewares for adherence to the Submission Guidelines. Comment Mods - Monitor the comments and forums for inappropriate activity. Review incoming comments on bewares. Administrators - Handle back end and technical work on the website. Are responsible for direction of all other moderator categories. Special Moderator Categories The following moderators are special ranks and do not field general user questions. Forum Mods - May be assigned to a specific forum, or may be a general forum mod. Their duty is to fill in where the main mod group can't cover. They do not have access to the queue, or have the ability to moderate comments on bewares. Web Admin - For technical issues only. You may either contact an Administrator who will forward any problems to the Web Admin, or you may contact @Alex Wright directly. Please note our web admin also moderates comments when necessary. Code of Conduct Artists Beware is run on a volunteer staff, however due to the nature of the community we ask that all moderators adhere to the following Code of Conduct. 1. Moderators are to remain professional and polite even when users are not. While we understand some moderators are prone to be more to-the-point and blunt than others, we absolutely will not tolerate name-calling, cursing, or responding to individuals in a snarky manner. 2. What happens in the queue and direct user communication stays private. Always. We are privy to medical, personal, and private social information sometimes. Leaking of this information to the public will result in an immediate dismissal. 3. Moderators are to be in good business standing with the community. Moderators are not exempt from bewares. We understand that life happens, and a singular beware is not an automatic dismissal. However, if poor business behavior becomes a consistent issue we will ask the moderator step down. 4. Moderators should be able to handle disagreements with fellow moderators gracefully. Sometimes a beware will not be cut and dry, and will require extensive discussion. Everyone who is participating in the queue chat should be able to handle themselves gracefully if they are out voted on a final decision. 5. Moderators are expected to be unbiased. There will be a time when the bewaree in queue is a friend or someone close. A beware will never be rejected on the basis that the bewaree is a friend, family member, or partner. If a moderator finds they can't be unbiased, they may sit out discussion on the beware without penalty.
  6. Positive reviews no longer require a mod to make a thread. The Rules for Commenting have been updated to clarify that comments also have to be constructive. Trainee Mod role has been added. General Reviews Forum has been deleted as the purpose of the forum was unclear. Do users want a place where they can curate general, neither entirely good nor entirely bad reviews on artists and clients?
  7. Howdy! This is not a question the community at large is equipped to answer. This is something best left to members of the Queue Mod team only when your beware is submitted with all of the supporting information we require. If it feels like a valid case, we will approve your post. If not we will send you a rejection notice. If you have further questions feel free to contact one (1) Moderator from our Staff page.
  8. Moderators can see your registered email address. You are Eylon. Don't even attempt to pull that stunt here. Any further attempts from you to keep up this charade will simply not be approved.
  9. I want to note preemptively that while Kuro is welcome to participate in our comments, if he attempts to post any doxxing or any threads in relation to Kiwi Farms he will be automatically banned. That trash is not welcome here.
  10. The "client" / bewaree (cautionee?) in this instance is so ridiculously incorrect that it hurts. No, they don't just get to toss out a magical "client ToS" and override your copyright. Copyright is granted unto you upon creation, and unless you signed a contract stipulating what rights the client has then it all automatically defaults to you. Filing a lawsuit has to be done in your county with your legal details, which they likely don't have. On top of that, while they could file suit for just about anything this one would be thrown out because there was no signed contract. If they attempt to upload the sketch anywhere file a DMCA notice. If they attempt to get the sketch finished by someone else or violate your Moral Right to it in any manner, please update us and we will upgrade this to a full beware. This is ridiculous.
