Final note of frustration by me 27th Nov 2012
Proof it has been marked as seen

Forgive me ,i'm not to sure how to explain ,I think the notes show enough?
I'd also like to apologize for my horrible wording ,grammar ,i am not very good at it despite me being english .

I'm a patient person when it comes to waiting for artwork from artists  as i know how long these things can take so i tend not to pester the artist for a while but after hearing nothing from this artist for so many months when most at least update me saying there will be a delay or giving me a status of the commission ,i started to worry so began to contact the artist for more information.I was glad to see that they where active and replied so fast to my notes and was hoping that they would finally be done with the commission but alas that never happened.I can understand that this artist has been away due to life but i would of just liked them to have noted me saying "I'm sorry but i cannot continue your commission because ____ ,I will have it done by this date" or refunding me when i asked them.Red-flags where raised the more replies i got ,the first being when they forgot about me ,second being when they said they had other people asking about commissions,third being that they can't refund me ,fourth being no replies or updates when they said it was nearly done .I did do things wrong ,leaving it so late to contact them and then some of my notes seem harsh? and I am sorry for that and now know better but i'm at a loss on what to do,I really wish i didn't have to put this beware up .There are comments on her page by others asking for their commissions ,some have been hidden now ,should i contact those commissioners and see if they are having the same issues as me?  this has made me very wary to commission any artist and since i commissioned eellie i have not commissioned anyone since.

Please help me try and fix this so it can be resolved ? :(
