Lost Contact: Furensics Studios

I really didn't want to have to post this here, but has anyone been able to get in touch with Furensics Studios recently?

I ordered a t-shirt from them back in August and sent payment on the 19th. It's coming up on 6 months now and I still haven't received it. I sold my Furensics fursuit back before Christmas and I got permission to re-route the shirt to the new owner when it shipped, and that's the last I heard from Furensics. The message was sent on December 23.

The most recent post on their facebook page is from January 10.


As you can see, that calendar didn't happen. I realize she's busy because of a big career move in her life, but I'd just like some sort of update.

I have a lot more screencaps of the whole exchange but I'm reserving those in the event that I need to post a full beware.

Advice on how to handle VATMOSS

Greetings everyone, I hope this is an ok post to make, but I have been a bit confused and concerned about VATMOSS lately.

For those who do not know VATMOSS is a value added tax recently put up by the European Union which taxes the seller rather than the buyer in digital goods. I didn't pay much attention to it because I am from South America and thought this wouldn't affect me, but it seems it can reach anyone as long as someone from the UK and the EU buys off from them.

Not everything is taxable though, like digital commission for speciphic clients don't fall under VATMOSS and in theory, anything sold via a third party marketplace. This should include Patreon, but Patreon seems to not want to go through the hassle of filing for VATMOSS for their users. So Patreon users will have to calculate tax on every single of their EU patrons.

This got me thinking what other things could potentially be taxed by VATMOSS, things like base packs, adoptables, YCH auctions; and how to circumvent the red tape without banning EU clients all together.

Has anyone had any trouble with this already? Or maybe some suggestions on how to handle this frankly very unecessary tax?
