Can't find commissioner from FWA '11

Edit - Just thought I should edit this and say that I've since got in touch with the commissioner and have mailed the badge to him. Thanks for everyone's help!

Hey everyone, this is my first time posting! Really sorry if this isn't the right subject matter for this community, but I was wondering if any of ya'll could give me some advice on finding someone. Or maybe even point me in their direction if someone knows him!

Copy/pasted from my journal on FA:
I've been doing a badge for a guy from FWA. I only have his e-mail,, and when I contacted him the e-mail came back with:

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable (state 14).

Also, this was the badge he gave me as reference:

I don't feel like I have much to go on. "Technodragon" and "Dragonfox" aren't exactly going to help my case when it comes to searches. So if anyone knows who this guy is, I'd really appreciate it if you could point him my way or vice versa!

But yea, I'm starting to wonder if I should contact FWA staff? I contacted them through tweets (hardly effective) but to no avail. I don't know anybody more specific on staff to contact, much less their e-mail or anything. So I'm feeling pretty stuck.

If anyone knows anything about this person or as to what I can do it would be absolutely wonderful!
Thanks guys.

Rush Fees?

Hey all, I'm in need of some advice and don't much know of a better place to turn.

For those who offer items in a rush, how do you determine the rush fees that are associated with them?

In my particular situation, someone is wanting some custom fursuit items, but with my commission list and a convention coming up, I'm really strapped for time. And they want the items by Memorial day weekend (so I'd have to finish and mail it off in about a week). They'd have to be bumped in front of seven people currently waiting. :|

I thought of doing $10 per person that they skipped in front of. Is that reasonable?

EDIT: Thanks guys! A percentage seems like a good idea. :)
