Starfinder/Kannos Update

It has been brought to our attention that Starfinder/Kannos is attempting to petition themselves back onto Furaffinity. For those new or who don't remember, feel free to browse her tag for more information on her history. She was banned from Furaffinity for not finishing commissions for years and refusing to comply with admin requests.

This is a post to touch base with past commissioners and check to see if her statements that she owes no further work and is in the clear are true. This is not a post to attack her, be it here or on her inkbunny, and we will be taking action against people from here that we find commenting on her page after this post goes up.

So again, anyone who has commissioned Starfinder/Kannos, please let us know if she still owes you work. We will be taking the information we gain from this post to Furaffinity for them to review, good or bad. Links to past AB posts you have made or proof that she does indeed owe you would be more helpful than vague comments, thank you!

It's really nice to see happy customers of hers, genuinely impressed. Hopefully the people she left hanging were responded to and got their art or money.

Can't say I'm terribly optimistic but hopefully some progress has been made in refunds and backlog and she's learned to earn money without scammed.

My thoughts exactly. She can have as many recent happy customers as she can manage, but I won't be convinced entirely until I know for sure everyone was paid their owed refund.

Well she's definitely doing commissions, but whether those are current or ancient, I have no idea. At least she's doing something.

Seems like she's been a lot more ethical as of recent. I commissioned her a few months ago and got a few day turnaround. Very happy.

To the best of my knowledge she's been doing things solely on a "pay upon completion" basis which appears to be working for her. Can anyone confirm/deny?

I can confirm it, at least on my end.

Seconding Ellonwye, I'm glad to see so many positive reviews.

Hey Air, do she still owe you? She stills owes T the Wolverine and it's been 8 years+.

I even brought it up, probably two years ago now?, one of the times she was 'trying to make things right' and was asking for info on commissions she stills owed. I gave an email address T could be contacted at and she never bothered to contact Shar.

It makes me very happy to see that she has changed her ways. I hope she has made good with her past commissioners as well.

I'm still pessimistic. Last time she "changed her ways" it was temporary.

The cynical part of me can't help but think the only reason she's still not up to her old tricks is that she's no longer a teenager and can have legal action taken against her if she runs off with someone's money.

Wish I could say I disagree. Until all her old debts are paid and she's working for a few years incident-free, I won't give her a single penny of my money.

While I fully admit I only made the barest cursory glance at that IB journal, a lot of those happy clients seem like newly happy clients, you feel me?

The reason she was even banned from FA in the first place is because she ignored her backlog and didn't make good on art or refunds.

Positive (or even lukewarm) reviews are all well and good, but if they're not from the people who've been burned by her years back; they're really invalid to her application to get back onto FA and I hope the administration sees that.

And as a sidenote, she seems to be doing SO WELL for herself on IB, why oh why does she need to come back to FA where the staff will just keep a closer and more scrutinizing eye on her?

The answer to your last question is that she wants more customers and more money, most likely, as FA has a bigger userbase than IB ;)

I'm also more interested to know if she's squared away with her past unhappy customers, as that is a much more telling and difficult thing to do than make new customers happy.

Yes, this is actually what we're looking for with this post. She has a lot of customers from the past who have posted here, so we're hoping to hear from them and others about whether or not she's given them what they're owed.

I am still awaiting either a refund or artwork.
She was one of the first people I commissioned in the fandom, and I was naive - I was very nice about giving her money up front, especially when I heard she had a financial emergency.

I have commissioned many many artists since then and fortunately had wonderful commission experiences, but it still saddens me that in the last few years she has refused to respond to any of my communications.

I am out just under $1000, and have no artwork to show for it.
Starfinder, if you're reading this: please consider doing something about it. This was on the order of NINE years ago, I think that's plenty of time to finish artwork.

I am happy to expound upon details as necessary. But, I can speak from personal experience, there ARE still outstanding refunds/artworks due. :(

I don't recall if you've made a beware or not, but I strongly suggest one, even its just update. Nine years is very serious.

I have now also posted on Starfinder's Inkbunny account, on the above linked journal. I am honestly curious whether my post will be deleted, or whether she'll answer.
I figured since I'm finally bringing this out in the open, I'll give her the honest opportunity to respond.

Yep she deleted the comments you left...looks like she's still up to her old ways. Did she at least email you?

She owes me a bust picture from 08 or 09, I will find details and post them soon.

I know Kesslan was owed a large picture that I never saw finished. Anyone know if that was ever finished?

As far as I know he has never gotten it. I wonder if anyone can get in contact with him to confirm?

I know FurrySkibum on FA posted that he was owed a refund from I believe 2007.

I did pay around $150 for prints from her back in 2006 or so. I received neither the prints nor a refund. If she wants to contact me about a refund she's welcome to, but I've written off that money as a loss years ago. I do not expect to ever receive complete closure on this matter, but that's fine with me.
