Artist Beware: Sentai: RESOLVED

LAST EDIT: Since it is against the rules to delete anything in the OP, I will leave it all up. however, on the second page, Sentai and I have come to a mutual agreement to ceasfire. I am hoping all parties involves will also agree to the terms. I believe her and Haiku have also reached an understanding. Please referr to the second page to see the terms and agree to them if you are any of the involved parties.

Thank you for everyone who stepped forward, thank you for everyone who has posited their insight onto the issue, any suggestions made, and thank you for all parties involved for reaching an understanding. May we all part ways from this and continue on our own paths. I wish you all nothing but success and peace.

Sentai is not only a budding artist on Furaffinity.net, but also a longtime user of Sofurry.com. farmerly yiffstar.com  My personal blog is a bit more lengthy and personal, so I tried to keep this one as professional as possible. Ive had a long time running in difficulty with this artist, as she has carried whatever sour grapes she has against me over to sites other than Furaffinity and Sofurry (such as livestream). Just recently, I found out that for a long period of time she has been privately contacting my past and reoccurring commissioners  to badmouth me as a person, offend them through their commissioning me or other people, and their character, and likely has prevented some of those people from commissioning me again via defamation. Instead of consulting me with whatever problems she has with me, she has instead contacted my watchers and commissioners to complain about my business ethics or practices, something of which she could not possibly know as we have never done business together.

Several years ago, before this artist started attacking me about my "popularity", my fiance, and my art, prices etc, I actually encouraged her and her art progress AND I never even gave her suggestions unless she ASKED for them. I was VERY respectful for someone always so unwarrentedly disrespectfull to me (and my commissioners, though I wasnt aware at the time). Why she suddenly got a rage boner is honestly beyond me, but I'm not the only person it's happened to, specifically, not the only artist who she's been a persistant source  of harassments on MULTIPLE sites.

Thought not recent, I eventually grew sick of her constant provoking and underhanded commentary on literally EVERY site I belonged to when she got the gaul to come onto my livestream and offend my customer. She came onto MY livestream, asked me tons of questions about my software and pricing and ethics, and then ranted about how crappy I am and what a ripoff I am. She came onto MY stream, with MY customers, told them THEIR character is "trying too hard" and "tragic" (as if "no offence" at the end would make it all better?"), then tell me I'm ripping them off for charging $10 to $15 dollars an hour. She offended MY customers and then contacted these customers behind my back to whine about her art and badmouth my quality, me as a person and otherwise make defametory remarks to them about them or their piece they commissioned or about me. How do I know she hasn't  told a past commissioner a lie about who I am as an artist or a person and that prevented me from furute business? She has never commissioned me or received art from me to be able to dictate my business ethics and not one of my commissioners has had an issue with me that wasnt immediately resolved.

The worst part is I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE.

Another artist who she has pulled this stunt with is Haiku OR CarboardCastles of sofurry and FA. Apparently she and her art receivers or friends have been harassed by Sentai for quite some time, as well, Sentai even being banned because she refuses to cease even when she is warned multiple times by moderation.


Here's a list of the places she's been banned and for what reasons, or broken rules,  as well as a list of people who she's been harassing:

-Sofurry, multiple times when it was YC. Here's the current moderation log on SF and proof she incessantly harasses users over long periods of time, in an unwarrented passive agressive manner: www.sofurry.com/threadview

-YC, user harassment, going around ignore feature, artist harassment, using vent to attempt to organize raids on YC, and to harass specific mods/users/artists, using puppet accounts to troll users

-Livestream, for harassing artists and commissioners and users

- Yashendwirh (myself) for badmouthing the artist, harassing commissioners, watchers, fiance, fellow artists and friends on FA and SF, following onto multiple sites to harass the artist and customers (COMMISSIONERS NAMES WTHIHELD AS TO PROTECT THEM FROM FURTHER HARASSMENT unless they come forward and admit it themselves)

-Haiku/Cardboard Castles of SF and FA for constant unprovoked harassment, underhanded commentary, harassing and offending past commissioners, watchers and friends (COMMISSIONERS NAMES WTHIHELD AS TO PROTECT THEM FROM FURTHER HARASSMENT unless they come forward and admit it themselves)

-Schwert/Sch/Schwertwal of SF and FA, for general harassment and provoacation of the artist. Lets just say attempts on him werent nearly as successful because "eh is a troll and doesnt afraid of anything." to put it simply

-A friend of mine, my fiance's and an art receiver from Haiku, who wants their name withheld

-Firasia, general harassment and unprovoked offenses in SF

So AGAIN, a word of caution. This person seems to lash out at artists she comes in contact with who have otherwise seemed latent or non-agressive towards her in any way, and she lashes out by harassment through multiple sites, harassing commissioners, and making otherwise defamatory remarks on the artist, their art, their commissioners and their characters.

If you have any further incidences with this person, harassment as a commisioner, or as an artist, please come forward, as there is a list of at least 12 people from the above events.

EDIT !: Added pics and logs of other artists comming forward, one even having to make a new account due to harassment., Ome past commissioner, one past art receiver.

Proof of harassing my customers AND other artists, even to the point of making them get NEW accounts on FA:




Artist, artist, customer.

A log:

(4:46:18 PM) ART RECEIVER She's a whiney bitch who doesn't like it when people give her constructive critisim or don't whore themselves over her
(4:46:18 PM) ART RECEIVER: o.o
(4:47:36 PM) Yashendwirh: Well she's been really trolling fucking everyone so Im reporting her and Im collecting all the underhanded crap she's been doing
(4:48:17 PM) Yashendwirh: She's gone onto my and Haikus FA and badmouthed us there, she makes snide, underhanded comments to us on SF and she came onto my livestream and attacked one of my customers AND me
(4:48:19 PM) Yashendwirh: so
(4:48:20 PM) Yashendwirh: yeah
(4:48:23 PM) Yashendwirh: ;w;
(4:49:45 PM) ART RECEIVER Yeah, she's intimidated by the fact that you and Haiku are more talented respoected artists.
(4:50:36 PM) Yashendwirh: I wouldnt be caught dead saying that for myself
(4:50:50 PM) ART RECEIVER She always seems to attack Haiku...
(4:50:55 PM) Yashendwirh: Just in case any whiteknights come along and say Im acting like the typical arrogant popufur artists
(4:51:19 PM) ART RECEIVER I sided with Haiku, or she assumed so because Haiku had drawn something for me.
(4:56:50 PM) Yashendwirh: ...Why is that bad?
(4:58:28 PM) ART RECEIVER It isn't
(4:58:33 PM) ART RECEIVER: I just lost all respect for her after that
(4:58:34 PM) Wasabi: o.o
(4:59:00 PM) Yashendwirh: Is it alright if I mention you in the report?
(4:59:13 PM) Yashendwirh: Its pretty crappy so offend someone else through their commission....
(4:59:43 PM) ART RECEIVER She offended me because she automaticaly decided I had sided with Haiku over some little argument she started because Haiku had just drawn me a piece of free art.
(4:59:53 PM) ART RECEIVERAnd then went on to bitch about not giving people free art, etc.
(5:01:18 PM) Yashendwirh: Is it ok if I mention you and this incident in the report?
(5:01:44 PM) ART RECEIVER: Eh, I guess.
(5:01:49 PM) ART RECEIVERAs long as it doesn' get out
(5:02:21 PM) Yashendwirh: I was going to put it on Artists_Beware
(5:02:25 PM) ART RECEIVER: Oh
(5:02:26 PM) ART RECEIVER Well
(5:02:28 PM) ART RECEIVER If its public
(5:02:31 PM) ART RECEIVERDon't mention my name
(5:02:33 PM) ART RECEIVER: Just saya friend
(5:02:43 PM) Yashendwirh: Ill say you were Haiku's customer
(5:02:48 PM) ART RECEIVER Sounds good

Do you have any more emails or chat logs to provide as evidence? I see the SF ban but that's it.
Jan. 8th, 2011 11:16 pm (UTC)
There are logs on my personal blog that you can read. I am currently compounding what has been said in private, albiet I have to blank out our names or make them "stranger" and "you" or something because the person does not want further harassment or attacks. Or persons. Right now there are three, but I have not been able to check to see if there are more yet. Please be patient and i will see if I can have the logs put onto the above post.

I was going to ask if this was her, but it seems it is.

Do you have any logs that you can provide of her contacting your customers? And the livestream where she was insulting people? Please tell me you saved that.
Jan. 8th, 2011 04:28 pm (UTC)
hmm she seems to have deleted that journal and the one where she was requesting white-knights to come to her aid.

I want you to delete this post.

Users here aren't allowed to delete posts, and all posts are backed up in case someone does decide to break the rules and delete them. I honestly have no idea if mods will delete posts they think are grudgewanky... it would probably take a lot of evidence to prove that they are.

Then again, it also takes screencaps, logs etc. to prove that a post ISN'T just grudgewank. Everyone here is pretty critical of the posters as well as the folks they're warning us about.

If this is on FA, ask the admins to check the notes. Even if you delete your notes on FA, they are archived.
Jan. 8th, 2011 11:43 pm (UTC)
THANK YOU. Im not sure if I can get an admin to check or pout forth her notes, but I know I have all mine archived. I will try this though. Thanks ;3
Jan. 8th, 2011 03:29 pm (UTC)
The only documented evidence I can see is that chat log mentioned. It's been proven that the person is snide but I don't think it's really enough to condemn Sentai just yet. Don't you have any chatlogs, e-mail logs, screenshots or whatever to better substantiate the claim?
Jan. 8th, 2011 11:44 pm (UTC)
I added another log and three pics at the bottom.I know at first it asnt a lot but more and more people are comming forward as they become aware that someone is taking action against it. Thanks for commenting :3
Jan. 8th, 2011 03:33 pm (UTC)
I would drop this.
Frankly unless you have definite without a doubt PROOF, then you are not only committing slander, but defamation of character and false accusation. All of which are VERY real and can be taken to court on, especially if this page does affect her income made from artwork.

Since I have seen no proof here on this page, linked or otherwise, I am calling this utter garbage. Screenshots can be forged, chat logs can be forged, and that one link to sofurry is ridiculous, is that your only proof?

Not to mention if/when this does come out into the light, it will destroy your online reputation if you're lying and no one will want to commission you again.

I have never talked to Sentai in person or online, I am merely stating this from a outside view, take it however you like.
Jan. 8th, 2011 03:53 pm (UTC)
Re: I would drop this.
I agree that it's a bad idea if the OP is using hyperbole to inflate her case, because it'll reflect poorly on her.

If you know their normal behaviour well enough (through watches or whatever), do you have any evidence that could support Sentai's POV?

Tbh, from what I'm seeing, this post and sentai's comment to you (on your personal journal) and their own journal on furry-affinity seems like you guys have some obvious back-story that's being leaked out in the posts. Without any screens from either, right now it's just a he-said, she-said thing.
Jan. 8th, 2011 11:53 pm (UTC)
I understand how it looked when I first posted but I added 3 screencaps and 1 log. More comming soon as soon as i get them. More and more people who have been harassed by the individual are comming forward so check back often because there are bound to be more updates with more info. Thank you for pointing that out, I'm trying to ramify the issue.
Jan. 8th, 2011 04:24 pm (UTC)
As everyone's saying, this is just hearsay.

Not that I don't believe you, or not even that I do, I'm just in a state of "well, okay, that's your story, can you back it up?" especially since the other party is now denying everything you've said, so do you have any proof that she's this troublesome a person? (aside that one chat-log in which you weren't involved)
Jan. 8th, 2011 11:56 pm (UTC)
I understand at the time it appreared to be hearsay, so Ive been adding more content near the bootom. Please referr back her every now and then since more andmore people seem to be comming forward as they see someone is taking actions to prevent more harassment.

Thank you for pointing it out. I wanted to wait for more evidence before I made the post but I had to wait on the reply of some people. Thanks :3

Jan. 8th, 2011 04:53 pm (UTC)
wow this is uh special.

all I can find on anything right now is a chat log that you posted on your livejournal where sentai doesn't even talk directly to you, and you admit that you were the one that started ranting at them and got kicked from the chat because of it (and it's their fault that you were kicked, because you've never gotten in trouble or something)

I have no idea where this is going and I have no idea what sentai's reputation is, but this just doesn't sound legit right now.
Jan. 9th, 2011 12:08 am (UTC)
I have since added evidence at the bottom, but I understand what you mean. Thanks for pointing it out, I am trying to amend the situation.
Jan. 8th, 2011 05:02 pm (UTC)
Why is this community starting to become a smear/snark spot?
Jan. 8th, 2011 05:09 pm (UTC)
Its really not meant to be, I assure you. We've had similar posts of this sort come up in the past without these comment reactions we are seeing here now. But the internet, she is fickle. Things spring up on even the most routine of posts. And well... seeing this response, perhaps these ought to not be so routine (as much as I hate to say that).

Look, you can't prove your uh, case unless the people you don't mention come forward and start saying stuff.

Right now, this doesn't even look like a valid A_B post. It's more of a "X person keeps attacking me and I don't know why!" post... I dunno. :(
Jan. 8th, 2011 07:32 pm (UTC)
I would personally want to know if someone was running around causing people's commissioners to not want to commission someone anymore. I would consider it a valid beware for that reason, as I think the base complaint of 'Someone is harassing my customers!' is a legit one.

That said, I hope the OP comes back with evidence, and I also hope the members here stop trying to turn this into a drama post. Evidence has been asked for, it's up to the OP to provide it, but people frothing at the mouth in the interim isn't very constructive.

After reading this post and the public one on your journal, I'm going to have to say that in order to believe anything here, you're going to need to provide a significant amount of detailed proof in order for me to believe any of this.

Unfortunately the public post on your journal seems to point to you having personal animosity towards Sentai, as well as several other people, and there's no proof that Sentai is doing what you are saying.

One serious point of A_B is that, if you aren't able to provide proof, the beware becomes about the poster. You're going to need to attach some screenshots, PM copies, etc, if you want this to hold up and not backfire on you.

I would definitely like to see something from the people who are being harassed. You don't even have to include their names if you can just get some screencaps of the notes exchanged or chatlogs or whatever.
Jan. 9th, 2011 12:20 am (UTC)
I have since added a log and 3 screencaps. I have a few more to add and I might be getting word from livestream and a few mods but Im still waiting for a response. Please check back as more updates are sure to come.
