EXPLAIN:
Hello.  My name is Electricfox777 on furaffinity.net The deal for the four pics by Sarcatsic were agreed upon on Jan. 21st and paid for on Feb. 5th as can be observed by the screenshot timeline I’ve posted above.  After the first pic was completed on Feb.  16th, Ideas were given for the backgrounds of the second, third, and fourth pics.  The second pic was proposed finished on March 30th and a small edit was requested added to the pic.  The second and third pics were completed and delivered on April 2nd.  After that I received no contact from Sarcatsic at all, despite sending her one note a month asking for an update on the final pic.  She received and read my notes and comments but never answered me back.  By July I was beginning to get a bit aggravated at being completely ignored so I left a shout on her page, as well as a comment in a journal she posted advertising commissions.  Still no word came from Sarcatsic until October 9th where she claimed that the receipt she has only shows that I paid for three pics, so three was all she did.  I was surprised that she replied at all, but to have such a blatant lie told annoyed me to no end.  So I posted a screen shot of my own receipt, showing that I had paid her in full for all four pics, and told her that just because she “believed” me to have only paid for three pics, it doesn’t explain why I’ve been ignored all these months.  She replies simply “That's not what mine say, but whatever, here. Take it.”  Now in truth I could have left it alone there, but I did not like the pic I was given.  As patient as I had been.  I did not feel I deserved a half assed pic thrown at me to get me off of her case.  But instead of complaining further, I ask for a simple edit.  I asked that the eyes and grin of the shadow be added into the pic.  She doesn’t respond, and after four days I send her a polite thank you for honoring the arrangement and doing the pic for me.  But I also tell her that the wait and being ignored for months was unacceptable and that I’d be posting an A_B against her for these things.  She responds with a spiteful note telling me how ungrateful and unprofessional a person and commissioner I am, how I never treated her with any respect, and how I asked for edit after edit to the pics she did for me.  I’ll admit I am far from perfect, but you can decide for yourself whether her rant was warranted.  The issue may be closed, but I leave this post to warn others who may commission her in the future what I had to go through, and by extension, what they may go through commissioning her.  Thank you for reading.  Have a nice day.
