So, a few of you may have noticed my debacle with Gideon Hoss, concerning a comission that is now well over a year and a half overdue and not even started. I have given him multiple chances, recieved multiple promises, and in the last few weeks had some good communication and had a plan to solve this, but life intervening on his end.

And then, silence. Nothing on Aim, nothing on FA, nada.

Should I pursue getting this art done, abandon it and consider this a lesson hard learned, or be a dick and try to find the transaction on paypal and dispute it, freezing his account until it gets done?

I've been more than patient, this is to the point where I'm being jerked around, but the nice guy side of me is screwing with my judgement. Wat do, AB?

For a guy who is very quick to run to his LJ posts when a beware's made about him, he doesn't follow through to get stuff done does he? Kudos for the former, but man... the later needs so much work its not funny.

I would not recommend jeopardizing his PP account over this. It wouldn't endear him to getting off his duff any faster in that regard and the satisfaction of it, if successful will be shallow at best.

Give him a solid 'do not pass go do not pass $200' deadline. If he fails to get you your product, you could inform the convention he was at about it and pray they'll acknowledge it and take record, if he dodges enough work from this con he just might get the boot.

Oh so does he want to go out like Starfinder? Cripes.

Bad all around Gideon. Bad all around, to take advantage of someone's kindness. Perhaps you should just send him a message saying you don't want the art, you want your money back. Even if you got the art, I have a feeling you'd have this :| reaction to it, y'know?

Or then as a last possible... regrettable... suggestion... would be to toss your hands up and say 'f*** it'. And never ever suggest anyone get a piece from him ever as the struggle isn't worth it.

I don't know if that last part will do any good.
Conventions usually have a rule that you have to be breaking a rule then (which I guess would include any complaints), or having to do something pretty wicked to get a preemptive boot before the next one.

If this transaction took place there, I'd think it may fall under a *we're sorry it happened, but it is not exactly breaking a con rule* area. I'd think that it'd take multiple people to report them, and then the greatest consequence I'd think they would face is a revocation of any attempt to set up a table there.

If other people have reported him, however, this could be the final straw sort of situation.

It's always worth reporting!

Your last sentence is the boot I was refering to. He doesn't need to be working the con circuit if he can't handle the flow of work that comes from one.
