This is my first time posting here, since I generally try to avoid talking badly of an artist I have done business with. But I have been waiting a while, and I hope this helps.

Back in February, I did a few Valentines themed requests and trades. Now, my specialty is poetry, and the trades were in exchange for art. Well, of of the ones I accepted was KuroKitten's, and was for a simple badge in return.
I sat down, wrote, re-wrote, typed, and submitted. Then I waited.

Generally I have my rules about the three forms of exchange:
Requests- The time is up to the artist, since they are doing this for nothing in return.
Trades- The time can vary, since technically I did not 'pay' them for their services.
Commissions- Though not a very strict timeline, I hope to receive it not too long after payment (depending on their workload).

Well, I submitted my half of the trade on February 3rd: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3364785/

Now, I was not in any rush to receive it, but I was hoping for an update, so I pinged her on the 10th of March.
I got a reply back, that she had just moved. Ok, fair enough.
If you move, that takes more importance.

Now, I for some reason got rid of a lot of my notes, so I don't have any before or after the 28th of July, which is when I messeged her again. Again she was moving, and had something happen requiring physical therapy. Ok, that means that she is busy again, so I wish her the best with moving and therapy, and tell her that I do not mind the wait (which by now is scheduled for September).

And...that is where communication stopped.
As of now, it is October 18th, with still nothing.

Now, I had hoped not to say this, and I hope not to have to say it again, but I am dissatisfied with the second party involved, and I have to give a negative review.

Below are the two note entries that I could find saved.

Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

ok. I will be completely honest. I completely forgot about this with everything that was going on and I am really sorry. I actually have the picture but because my scanner died I havent been able to post anything and we are looking in to getting a new one. But Josh if you could PM me your address on FA I can send it too you. And I am really really sorry I forgot to tell you that. But we can talk more about it on FA.

I feel like this person has come up once before, but I can't seem to find the old post (mods or anyone else correct me if I'm wrong?)

She has once before. Under "Comm" instead of artist.

Ah! That explains why I can't find it.

Have you contacted Kuro yet? And is so, has anything been discussed and/or done yet?
Nov. 1st, 2010 04:03 pm (UTC)
Yes I have, and I am just waiting for it in the mail.

Please do let me know if it gets there or not, you can note me on FA too (strawberryneko). I'm friends with Kuro, so i can nudge her when she comes online if things don't get done.
