WHO: Murdoxy/Stellary/Inkyfox/Spiffy

WHERE: Furaffinity & Email

WHAT: Three digital pieces, valued at a total of $45.

WHEN: September 2014

EXPLAIN: In September of 2014 I decided to purchase three pieces from (then) Murdoxy. Equaling up to $45 total. I ordered these from Murdoxy from my Furaffinity account Blysse as seen below:

Note 1  This is where I inquired originally about the commission. 

Note 2 This is where we agreed on the price. 

Note 3 Confirming payment

Note 4 First (and only) WIP. 

On October 10th I received a WIP (as seen in the 4th note above) of two of the three commissions seen here:



These would be the only images of those commissions I would ever see. 

On October 19th, 2014 Murdoxy posted a journal about moving over to the account Stellary. 

Journal Seen Here

Once the move was finished a journal was posted on Stellary's to-do list with me shown on it as paid and sketched even to this day. 

To-Do List On Stellary As Of Today

After some time passed I wanted to know why I had not received my commission so I checked in on Stellary. Admittedly I should have checked in ALOT sooner but honestly I forgot about the commission for a while. I came back to Stellary's page to find this journal about them leaving Furaffinity for good. 

Journal About Leaving Fa Posted May 10th, 2016

So I did exactly what Stellary suggested, which was contact them via Email. 

I emailed Stellary THREE times over the next year without ever getting a reply. 

I also left a shout on Stellary's Furaffinity account hoping to get some kind of answer. 

Email 1 (Jan 20th, 2017)

Email 2 (May 25th, 2017)

Shout (Left the same day as email 2, May 25th, 2017) 

Email 3 (admittedly I was getting a bit agitated at this point. This was on Dec 9th, 2017 and I have still had no answer at this point from Stellary). 

So now we get to today. 

So today I woke up and was checking on old commissions. I had honestly forgotten about Stellary for a while since it had been almost four years now since I commissioned them. 

I checked Stellary's account to see if anything new was posted and found this shout.

To me this seemed to indicate that Stellery had a new account under "Spiffy" they were operating from again. I checked their Leaving Fa journal again and it seems they used the same name for their tumblr so the name of the new account seemed to match up.

So I decided to send this new account a note to see if I could finally go ahead and get a refund. Low and behold Spiffy has blocked me on BOTH of my main accounts (the one I used to commission them back in 2014 and the new account I have switched to since then). 

Message I Tired To Send (I actually see now that I made a mistake when messaging Spiffy and said two years ago when it was really four years, but that isn't really the point). 

Block Proof

I was able to send my message out from my VERY old account that I also use to watch Murdoxy on here.

I sent this early this morning but as of this posting it has not been read by Spiffy.

But I honestly have very little hope of them replying. So far I have been completely ignored and then blocked by Stellary/Murdoxy/Spiffy for wanting information on a commission that is almost four years late at this point. I realize I waited longer than I should have to follow up on the commission but I don't believe I deserve to be ran off on because of it. I really didn't want to submit one of these because I am normally able to solve these types of issues myself, however in this case I feel I have done all I can on my own. 

At this point all I want from the artist is a refund so that we may both move on with our lives. One of the characters I commissioned from them I no longer own and another one of them has since been retired. Getting the art at this point would almost be a disappoint.

PROOF:  All attached files are located in order here. 

Edit 1: As of 1:50 PM CST today 08/08/2018 Spiffy has read my note about a refund but has not replied. I will update again if they reply. 

Edit 2: Fixed the links. Sorry about that!

Edit 3: As of 11/23/2018 the artist had still not replied. I suspect I was blocked again. I don’t intend to make any further attempts to contact them on furaffinity because of their rules, however I may email the artist again in the future about this. If so I will update again as needed.
Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

Just a heads up that we've contacted the OP about the 404'd links. They're available in the Stash album at the bottom of the post.

It's really disappointing to see that Stellary hasn't changed in all of these years. They've been doing this since forever. I'm really sorry that you still haven't gotten your work.

Wow. Now that's a name I haven't heard in years. It's both surprising and not to see that they still haven't learned anything.

I'm sorry you still haven't gotten what you paid for or even a reply. Damn.

Haven't seen anything in regards to this artist in awhile...but i'm also not surprised one bit. Sorry you are having trouble with them!

Another Stellary post, yikes. I can't believe that she would block you (and most assuredly other commissioners that she owes a product to). That is really deplorable behaviour, maybe even criminal.

I hope that you get your art or refund, but with her track record sadly it's doubtful. I'm assuming it must be too late to dispute the charges with your CC company? It might be worth a try if not.

This is really not a surprising considering the previous update post from tamararama about her new account and a long history of bewares from her that very few have been resolved. Looks like she won't learn at all sadly.

Some things never change :(
