Advice on a trade? kinda weird situation

I was buying fabric from this one person on facebook, we discussed price and colors they had, they said they could include extra fabric lying around for some extra price, well my refsheets were about the extra price and suggested if i could do art for it, sayign that i would start after receiving the fabrics since i did pay partly with money and my school was ending making me busy to do drawing at the moment.
They agreed and sent me the fabric, it arrived to me about 2 weeks later and i informed them about it. But since school ended i had to return or buy my computer and because of billing issue i didnt get the computer but almost month later, i used my moms computer at the meanwhile, sketched up her ref and showed it to her, saying that i would continue to line it when i got my own computer back.

Then i got my computer back and messaged them to resend me the refs since facebook didnt show previous message histories from that far for me and got no answer.
Then i posted comment on one of their facebook posts about it and wasnt replied to.
Now when i went to look bit after they had blocked me (black name and cant click on profile)?

And facebook was only place i knew them on!

So long story short, She finished her alf of the trade, i cannot finish mine because of references missing and her blocking me :/
Any idea what to do? :_: id feel awful if they accused me of not finishing the trade when they disappeared on me


Edit, found the references, ill be finishing the front half and then tryign again for people to direct me to the owner since her facebook account has totally disappeared

Hmm, that's bit of a pickle. Do you know any mutual friends who could contact them?
If not, I personally would probably finish the started image as best as I could from memory and post it in FB with apologies for mistakes and hope they notice and leave it at that.
Of course if you have their return address and haven't used the fabrics yet, you could send them back and not finish the art.

The tape ripped the address off the box when i opened it :/
i have quite few friends in common since they added lots of people, it might be bothering them but ill ask!
Thank you

Did you let them know about the computer troubles? All I can think is that maybe they felt like you stiffed them and that's the reason for the block. I'd go with the other fellow's suggestion of using a mutual to get back in contact, here's hoping this can be fixed up.

i kept them updated about my computer situation ofcourse, i wouldnt want them to think im ditching them.
Sent few messages to some people, waiting for them to get back to me.. thou i just sent messages to random people i thought were friends with them, since im blocked i cant see mutual friends

Did they have a "false name" on Facebook? Like their furry name, or something like that? Facebook has been cracking down on people with fake names, and has been forcing them to prove they are who they say they are. Could be that they have been kicked off Facebook temporarily, and haven't been able to log back on.

This was my first thought. Could have been that they shut down their account or had it shut down.

OP, you could ask in any mutual groups if someone knows a way to contact them.

Same, or I use my first initial. Hell, I've sent and received a number of parcels to and from the US labelled with Badger [Lastname]. As long as the address is correct, they don't seem too worried about the name.

I've sent a few letters and packages to others before, and I've been given their username most of the time, or just their nickname that is used within the family and they've all gone through. Granted if a 'fake' name was put on the postage it would confuse the postage a little but as long as the address exists then it'll go through.

The only exception I can see would be if the postage has a required signature in order for the recipient to receive it - then I would see that they would need to use their full name especially if they miss it considering you have to show an ID.

Heck I know I've gotten letters from others who had put my username down even though I've given them my First name atleast and I haven't had much of a problem receiving them.

You could post the ref in a 'looking for' AB post? Someone might know the character from the wip.

Although a mod would need to clarify if thats okay, since you don't know their name.

I think that's part of the problem though, they don't have the reference anymore :x

Yeah but they have the unfinished image that might already have enough main characteristics of the character that someone could recognize it.

As below said, I meant the unfinished image. Someone may be able to find the character based on that.

Facebook let me go back in the conversation and i found the references, it looks like houndoom with the raw sketch i made so im gonna draw it out first (atleast front half) to get people to regodnize it, since im unsure if i can use her ref images to do that

Facebook is fickle in some aspects but nice enough to store every conversation you've had (unless you chose to bomb them for some ungodly reason).

Go into your messages and see if their name pops up. If not, they'll be listed as "Facebook User". Their icon may or may not be there, if it's not then it's the default person.
Your conversation should still be there, you just won't be able to send replies. :)
