With all due respects, I am a patient person. I have no problem in understanding people have problems they need to sort out and that time issues/constraints happen.

BUT when you wait for a year and a half for an art trade that's ridiculous. Everytime I talk to the person it's always "oh! I've it sketched." Telling me one time they're coloring a picture of /just/ Frisket.. or of Melsa or of Frisket and Nall... Making me believe they've not even started.

Granted I'm slow as well (but I don't bite off more than I can chew and keep in GOOD contact with people I do trades with.)

The person I'm talking about is Orange04 / Aaron Acre / gibbet

I considered this person a friend. I still would like to but I feel without this public note (as I've mentioned it many times to them in private) this is the only logical step left. I've also heard from another source Aaron was to send MLPs out to a few people and they never got sent. (I don't know if payment was involved or not.)

Like I said, I'm a patient person, but I completed my half of the trade on August 19th 2003.

Now if there is a problem this is public chance for Orange04 to give me some reasonings n' stuff. But as it stands I'm reaching the end of my patience feeling like I'm brushed off everytime I communicate with them. They have a very active art life -- as I see new uploads so I know it isn't a matter of time...

if you're judging friendship of a person by whether they trade art with you or not, then you haven't really been considering them a friend at all

personally i always thought these trade things were in fun, rather than an exchange of money and an expectation of service.

Then friend is too strong of a word. Especially when they make no effort to communicate.

But whether this was just an exchange for art or had it been for money, the issue of it not coming through is the problem at hand. I know a few that have not recieved their services from this individual as well.
