lost Contact, Please help?

WHO: TheRoyalBanana/ Jing the Ranga

WHERE: Fur Affinity/ http://www.furaffinity.net/user/theroyalbanana/

WHAT: For a fursuit head/tail

WHEN:  First commissioned April 26th, 2011---Last reply September 28th, 2012

PROOF: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v12/ShadowKai/roger1.png
(last head update with old eyes)
(New eyes, not sure installed or not)
(Last message I've gotten from her)
(last message I've sent to her, asking for the product, has not been read)

EXPLAIN: I am looking for any info or contact with TheRoyalBanana...She may go by that name, or Jing the Ranga. I reasonlty lost contact for a few months now, and I'm getting worried..I commissioned her for a head and tail and I have not gotten the product. I've seen pics of what it looks like and have gotten updates, until she kinda fall off of the planet of the earth. Also from what I've seen on her page, she been going to cons and such, so I do know she's still alive...So yeah I don't know if she is avoiding FA or not...and I am not the  only one who commissioned her, my friend also did...We just want answers....

Yeah people shouting on her page saying they saw her just last month possibly means she's avoiding FA, her last fave was in June so she's doing well at keeping her head down if anything, lol. Have you tried contacting their SO whose posted on their FA? They're shouting people just from going through and looking at the pages of those who saw her at OniCon. I'd also try contacting the other commissioner to see if they are still keeping contacting as well as anyone who went to OniCon and could have possibly gotten an email, skype, or messenger.

I have talked to one of the other commissioner sometime ago, and she said that Banana told her she was working on things...But I'll message them again and post what they say, and I'll message some of the shouters.

Should also inquire as to how they are contacting her. If she's elsewhere (Tumblr, DA, some fursuit site) the more information you can get as to her whereabouts as well as different ways to contact her the better. Just asking how their commission is going or last contact isn't going to help to get back in contact with her if she's avoiding using FA.

She does have links to her Youtube and DA, but both looks just as abandoned as FA to me ^^;

Just by googling the name I got empty accounts x_x All of them haven't been updated since 2011. The only post I could find from this year is the A_B here... At this point contacting those who have been in contact with her at cons as well as her partner is the best thing you can do.

I Just got a message from one of the other commissioners, she said this
" Hey there! No bother at all. I talked to her 17 days ago, and she said she had finished it and was going to post photos the next day.. I'm not holding my breath or anything. I looked for your AB and I can't believe how far back you commissioned her. I hope you hear from her soon."

^^;; I just asked her if she got any other contact info, also should i post the link to this page on Banana's Mate page? and see what happened?

Erm, I dunno about posting it, a simple should should suffice for now asking for her where abouts, if she's ok and what's up with your commission if he knows anything. If he needs details then it'd be ok, I'm not much of a regular here so you'd have to wait for others to suggest this if it's alright or not.

So...I just got a message from SOMEONE who shouted her page
This what I said
Sorry to bother you, but I'm trying to get in contact with TheRoyalBanana, by any chance do you have any contact info from her?

This is what they said
Don't know anyone by that name. Sorry.

....You SHOUTED on her page, how can you not know the name! Anyway I replyed with this...

She also goes by Jing the Ranga? You posted on her page a month ago...^^: I know all this is creepy, but I'm trying to contact her for my commission.

EDIT: Apperently the same shouter watches her...Once again how do you not know the name?

Weird, seems as though they might be playing dumb or is a dummy account.

Also hoping the SO replies to you with SOMETHING.
Nov. 24th, 2012 04:26 am (UTC)
So far 4/5 SO I sent messages replyed, all of them have no contact or contact info with her...There was only one that was helpful that sent me to an account of a possible commissioner she did without us knowing (I'm not sure if he did or not, but the suit he has is in her style) I messaged him and Banana BF, Neither of them as answered me though...

I want to change this into a Beware now, do I just make a new journal? Or update this?
Nov. 24th, 2012 04:38 pm (UTC)
Please submit a new post. What you've got here so far is a good starting point for a beware, just include proof of payment and screencaps of the original agreement and update with anything that may have happened since you originally made this post.

Any questions, feel free to contact any of the moderators!

I just messaged her mate, I told him this
Sorry to bother you, but I really need to get in contact with your GF TheRoyalBanana/ Jing, I want know whats going on with my commission, if you know anything please tell? I just want to get what I paid for, if it's not done I'll finish it, but I'm just getting tired of waiting a year for it...Please tell her do not make it two...I also made a post on A_B


So I really hope this gets through to him and her, I also connected a few of the shouters...One didn't have any more info, but gave me a link to someone that commissioned her, that I didn't know of, that got his suit I think (I messaged him too, so I really don't know if she made it or not) Talked to a past commissioner, that got her head before me (Which she commissioned Jing, WAY AFTER I did) And said she had trouble with her too during all this...I just really don't know what to say or do, I'm waiting for messages and replys...I really really hope I didn't get scammed again, if so this would be my second time....

I don't know if this is any help, but according to their profile page, all their fursuit commissions are being handled through an account named fursuitparade (http://www.furaffinity.net/user/fursuitparade) now.

^^; She hasn't been on that page for a long time ether, she was planning to move there once she has the final commissions done on her main...Which she still hasn't finished, since me and the other two still haven't gotten anything yet.
Nov. 25th, 2012 12:11 am (UTC)
Oh dear.. I really hope she gets back to you! Especially since it looks like your head is pretty much done. :T

If I come across anything, I'll let you know!
Nov. 29th, 2012 05:25 pm (UTC)
Just to let you know, they also go by the name "Jing Randa" on FB (found them googling their username)
