Xnomiad [edit]

WHO: Xnomiad

WHERE: LJ/DA/FA

WHAT: a 50x50 pixel icon for $2 (I know it's not that much, but money is money)

WHEN: March 12 - now

PROOF:

the original post (along with our agreement) post deleted, but I didn't screencap it
my Paypal receipt
my pm to her on DA (ignored)

EXPLAIN: I was browsing on teenycom when I spotted Xnomiad's post offering pixel icons for $2. So I went there and requested for one. She agreed to do it and I paid her promptly. A few days went by, and I keep checking on TeenyCom to see if there's any progress on my icon. Nothing yet. So I left a polite comment asking how things are. No response. So I decided to pm her on LJ, reminding her about my icon, only to find out she disabled the pms

I went by her DA page and sent her a pm, once again, about my icon, but it was read and ignored

I pm'd her again on March 28 asking about my icon, while also warning her to have it done by April 4 or I'll be asking for a refund. She never responded. So I contacted rikkoshaye  (who also attempted to commission Xnomiad as well) about my problem with her, and the suggested that I file a dispute on Paypal (and so I did)

be cautious when doing business with Xnomiad. She may have cute icons and some nice artwork, but she's very rude and will ignore you should you ask for updates on your commission

ETA: Xnomiad decided to cancel some commissions (including mine as I've filed a dispute anyway) due to lack of computer time, as she mentioned in a DA pm

I have approved this post, but please change your information to reflect that the Xnomiad has private messages disabled, she has not blocked you specifically.

Did she give some indication in the original commission offer of a time limit that she expected to have the icons done by? (Like, "it only takes me a few days to finish these," or something similar.)

Oh, wait, haha, didn't see the link to the original agreement page/journal. Which means I do see where she told the other commissioner: "I'm currently on holidays, so I should be done with icon on the next weekend. :)" on the 16th.

It's not saying much, but it's lucky it was a $2 commission and not a $20. :/

Ugh sorry if this posts twice!

I did an art trade with Xnomiad recently, and she told me she would be in Ireland so wouldn't be able to get art done for a while. This was on March 12 and I'm unsure when she's leaving, or when she's returning. I don't think she's ignoring you, she simply hasn't been able to reply and didn't inform you that she'd be away.

yeah I've noticed she's on a holiday and she replied to my da note saying that she couldn't reply 'cause she's on a phone

I really hope you get her end of the trade sooner or later

Yikes I almost commissioned her on that very same post. I hope your problem gets resolved.

I had to really pester her on DA and in the LJ post to finally get my art when I signed up for one of her previous ones.
She ended up opening for the second batch before even bothering to do mine or someone else's which is against the rules of Teenycom.

It was very annoying to deal with her indeed.

I also ordered an icon from her on on the first batch she did. It took a while and I had to note her on deviantart, but I eventually got it two days before the second batch opened.
She told me she was only able to get on the computer on the weekends, though I'm not sure if that helps...
