  1. Sweet jesus that's on me for working this beware before coffee. If you see something that major please dont leave a comment. File a report or PM me. I almost didnt check my email because it was just a comment notif.
  2. A post has been hidden because it appears to contain personal information. As a note we do not allow irl names. If there is definite proof the artist goes under different names, feel free to contact one (1) moderator with absolute proof it's the same person. Proof includes: - Same images - Same public emails - A public notice the account is a side account. Unacceptable proof is: - "Same style"
  3. Hiya this is something only staff can answer when looking at it in the queue with your proof supplied. If you feel it is something others should know about please submit.
  4. Ultimately it's their right to block whoever they want, and choose not to do business with whoever they want. I don't see it as unnecessary personally.
  5. This comment is being approved so we can publicly state that we do have internal proof via our rejected archives that you two are the same individual. Trunch submitted it, but it was asked to be withheld because the person you're commenting to can't consent to being included on a beware.
  6. We will mark this as resolved, but it will still retain the beware tag.
  7. Cknsausage is correct. You can pull the character from them and resell it/ retrade it at any time. Especially if they're going to ignore you on this trade.
  8. Changed Resolved to Yes
  9. I'd personally consider it a bit overkill to hand over something drastically lower res, but I'm assuming it's to prevent someone from swiping the image and printing it. I'm assuming they're not handling you something pixellated to the end of the world and back, and it's just... way tiny right? If it is full of JPG pixels and weird, then I'd call that an oddity. I work in 3000 x 4000 pixels and will hand over 900 x 1200 for uploading to FurAffinity.
  10. I'll just go ahead and address them as bullet points: That's not necessarily wrong, but you're still within your right to cancel as per Paypal. There's nothing wrong with this on the surface. It really comes down to how they're applying this rush fee. Like if everyone is in indefinite limbo until you pay the rush fee, then it's unethical. If the rush fee is paid, and the artist works on your piece on what would otherwise be off hours to get it done sooner then that's fine. Red flag. All artists should have public queues. Nothing wrong with this. Distribution rights are held by the artist, and many folks ask the high res remain private. For the refunds section: That's a no, and unenforceable as per Paypal. That's also a no, and unenforceable as per Paypal. No, the art isn't "yours". You do not own any of the copyrights, nor are they transferred by default in a commission. However in the terms of this fandom is generally understood that if the client cancels they get a partial refund and get to "keep" the art for personal use. Maybe this part of their ToS is worded weird, but I would interpret this as you aren't allowed to take it to another artist for completion, aka it's not "yours" in a copyright sense. That's their prerogative, and there's nothing inherently wrong with carrying a blacklist. I personally blacklist individuals I see being rude to other artists. (If they're rude to someone else, they'll likely be rude to me too.) However, the lack of a definite break down of how partial refunds are dished out is also a red flag. Your question is something only a moderator can answer when we are looking at your post in queue with all of the proof. If nothing has been done so far simply file the claim (not dispute) and move on before you lose your money.
  11. The most recent comment was hidden simply because it's not particularly good advice legally. This situation is more of a civil matter than a criminal one, but Alex has privileges to see hidden comments so it's his decision to follow through.
  12. I can insert this information into the body of your post if you'd like.
  13. I believe it's ok to use the Friends and Family option in this instance. Normally Paypal will take action against an account that abuses the option to avoid fees, but the artist isn't asking you to do so. Personally I've sent tips in this manner. It's too bad that Paypal doesn't have the option to let you tip on an invoice after the fact.
  14. Howdy. The artist has attempted to post to this beware, but their comments were reserved for rule violations. (Rule 5) They have also been banned for legal threats against the OP and us. OP- spamming the link to this beware on the artist's pages is not condoned by us. In addition, it is against the ToS of many sites. While we understand that you want to spread the word about your experience, it isn't a good thing to harass others or get banned for harassment on other sites.
  15. The system that runs our images can be quite magical sometimes. Anyhow, thank you it's fixed.
  16. The screencap featuring the artist's email has been censored. Please be sure to review what we ask to be censored in the Submission Guidelines!
  17. Changed NSFW to Yes
  18. Archiving has been completed thanks to @Alex Wright finding a nice work around to get the bewares on the site.  The archive is currently hidden until tagging and deletion of items that wouldn't meet today's standards are completed.

    The current archives will also have to be moved (by hand) to the old archives.

      Good work, guys!!

  19. I purchased an icon from Dewdlepies on 01.30.19, and received the finished item the next day. He was swift, showed me progress reports throughout the day, and delivered an amazing icon. I can't recommend him enough to get work done.
  20. I commissioned OgnevkaFenella (https://ognevkafenella.artstation.com/) on 04.21.19 for a portrait commission and a full color two character commission. She was pleasant and prompt to work with, and I received my finished commissions today, 04.29.19. Her work is absolutely lovely, and her turn around time is lightning fast. I highly recommend her.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
