ORIGINAL POSTING DATE: March 1st, 2011 Price: $10 Status: unknown, assumed untouched Problem: No status updates or finished icons. Now I'm being ignored. Length: from January 10th 2010 to current date Details: So I commissioned Darkshadow 8181 January 10th 2010. Just for a simple $10 animated icon. At the time he seemed pretty productive. But more and more time passed and icons came and went, but I never saw mine pop up. During this he would make Journals asking for more commissions and work to do. I also never once noticed myself on any kind of "work queue". Actually, the first time I sent him a note regarding this and a refund, he immediately changed his tune. Even offered a 2nd free icon. During this time of my asking about commissions he had a long down time. Turns out he switched accounts and is now known as Fungasm. Of course I followed and still watched for my icon. I've noted him a handful of times during this.(I do not have our earliest transactions, but these are the most recent) part 1. http://pics.livejournal.com/banewulf/pic/000h7rtd part 2. http://pics.livejournal.com/banewulf/pic/000h8yza part 3. http://pics.livejournal.com/banewulf/pic/000h9g8g part 4. http://pics.livejournal.com/banewulf/pic/000hatat So it's been a whole new year, and I shoot off another note to him. http://pics.livejournal.com/banewulf/pic/000h664p Now, what REALLY bothers me about this. I know he read my note. He just chooses not to respond to me. (Furaffinity notes clear of unread status, even sent ones). I am piss. I want my money back, but if I'm being totally ignored, what else can I do? Friends suggested I post here. I don't want anyone else to have to go through this. It's really lame. ? proof of original transaction: http://pics.livejournal.com/banewulf/pic/000hd2bk
ORIGINAL POSTING DATE: March 8th, 2011 EXPLAIN: So, as you can see in the link, I commissioned for a custom of their adoptables quite some time ago. I was much rather wanting them to include that one in their next batch, so I could purchase it then when it was actually done, but I went on to commission it as a custom since I doubt they'd do otherwise. Only once since then have I ever received any sort of update, seen here: So, okay, I was cool with that. Sure it'd be a little over a month, but that wasn't too long right? Next day? Nothing. Day after that? Nothing. All the way up 'til today, and I've still received no news. I've sent them a note recently on February 22nd, which has indeed been read, just asking on how it was coming, and I have not received a response. I believe they were out of town or state for a while around Christmas time, but they've been posting their own stuff, and for a custom adoptable that really is only a recolor of old lineart? I really didn't want to have to write anything about anyone on here, but this getting ridiculous, and I'm still waiting of icons from another artist that someone just recently posted. Any suggestions of how I could ask for a refund without coming off as rude or whatnot? I'm rather worried I'll just end up being ignored though, as I already have once. |:
ORIGINAL POSTING DATE: March 15th, 2011 WHO: Shon Howell / king_cheetah WHERE: Furaffinity / Deviantart WHAT: Commssion work and Retail book (two different things) WHEN: May 2009 and October 2009 till current PROOF: I originally contacted Shon Howell for a commission based on a comic I was working on. and was responded to almost immediately. I sent payment immediately, Shon was known for cranking out work like mad. And let him know EXPLAIN: After a month without hearing anything at all (including receipt of payment), I sent him a note to make sure that he had all the info he needed. And got a "Working on it note" And then nothing. Not for a while. I sent out a couple of pokes (notes and shouts, unfortunately, the shouts aren't available to screencap) just to see where he was on it. This note is still listed as "unread". 2 emails went unanswered. I received a response on Sept 23rd 2010 (almost a year since my commission) saying he had sketches and would be finishing them up soon, but I never heard anything after that. Even a quick note 3 months later resulted in nothing (This too is unread) I like to think that I'm fairly patient with things. I don't mind if artwork is late, but I'd like to be kept informed, especially if I've paid in advance. However, this is not the only problem I've had with Shon Howell/King_Cheetah. One of his comics, done with Phil Gibson (who is an awesome guy, really), had their first book printed back in May of 09, and I ordered a copy. Phil, as a favor, signed it and sent it with postage included to Shon, to be signed and shipped. It's, to my knowledge, never been shipped. (Receipt for the book follows) During this entire time Shon's been posting art on his FA, he's got his up and down times, but he's been posting fairly regularly. Conclusion: Beware. Shon Howell is a lousy communicator, and you'd do much better working with just about _anyone_ else. Getting updates out of him is like pulling teeth, and getting anything you've paid for is exponentially harder. Edited to fix broken image names
ORIGINAL POSTING DATE: March 24th, 2011 Artist is LaineNyah. Art can be found at www.furaffinity.net/user/lainenyah Here is both completed badges: www.furaffinity.net/view/4455318 www.furaffinity.net/view/4468593 I do not have a receipt for the animethon badge. I do have one for the other, if you guys want it, I can post it later, I just have to dig through old paypal reciepts. I commissioned her at animethon and a month after animethon. Around sept. 12th, I got a note saying this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/40433742@N06/5556568943/ So both should have been sent on the 13th. I waited a long while, and I think at the end of january I emailed her again, asking where my badges were. Her response is at the top. She then proceeds to tell me, she is doing an iron artist, and when she hits 25 commissons, she will do a mass ship. Keep in mind my badges have been done for 5 months! http://www.flickr.com/photos/40433742@N06/5556568875/ As of today, she only has 6 people signed up for her Iron Artist, which pretty much makes me think I will never see them. http://www.flickr.com/photos/40433742@N06/5557153794/ She did send me this note, saying she would have them shipped out by the end of Feb., but that never happened. http://www.flickr.com/photos/40433742@N06/5557153754/ I sent her a note a month ago, still no answer. http://www.flickr.com/photos/40433742@N06/5557153770/ I like the artist, I like her work, but she seriously has her priorities mixed up. She has taken alot of commissions since mine, I did pay for shipping, they SHOULD have been shipped out by now. Now she's posting a journal saying she has booked a room for AC... which I'm sure you have to put some sort of deposit down for. She STILL has no responded to my last note. www.furaffinity.net/journal/2195519/ I am beyond ticked. I do not reccomend Laine for anything anymore. I was planning on ordering a bunch of badges for a bunch of my friends up here, but I doubt I will ever see them.
