I Send a Note to Lambomill on their new account on DA ( Quickmill) and they read it, but don't reply:

EXPLAIN: I wasn't really expecting things to go this way, I've been a fan of Lambomill's work for a long time. However, I have sent
them several notes on several accounts and they have either read the note and not responded, or ignored my messages completely. I asked
if they could either finish the Commission that I payed for, or refund me the $15. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, they have chosen
to not respond. I would be less irked if they would just reply to me and let me know what the heck is going on.

January 6, 2014:So first I send Lambomill a note in January asking for a flat colored bust Commission of one of my characters.
they accept and I send them the payment. (see links above)

January 18, 2014: I wait a bit, I almost forget about the Commission completely because I haven't heard any sort of information from Lambomill. I see that they mention something about moving to Furaffinity, so I follow them on FA and send them a note there asking about it. They respond saying they didn't save the Commission information and to resend it to them, so I do. (see links above)

I get absolutely no contact from Lambomill after that point, I try to send them several more notes on FA but they continue to ignore them

March: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/d69ezug9w6eb3oe/More%20FA%20Lambomill%20Notes.PNG?dl=0

After March I kind of just gave up for a while, but I was also dealing with a lot of personal things, so I forgot about it
almost completely, but I also didn't want to seem too pushy so I tried backing off thinking they would eventually get back to me.
Sadly this..didn't happen.

December 15, 2014: I send Lambomill a note on their new DA account hoping that they will respond and this whole ordeal would be over.
Instead, they read the note but choose not to respond.

The only reason I am posting this is because I have no other choice. I contacted Lambomill/Quickmill several times and they
have rudely ignored me. Hate to say it, but I no longer respect them as an artist or a person. If they would have just owned up
to their mistake, this AB wouldn't be getting posted. I really hate resorting to these measures, but I'm not taking shit from
anyone anymore. Weither or not I admire them.
At this point I just want a refund, but they wont even give me that.

EDIT(12/21/14): Quickmill posted a new journal Titled "2015 Commissions". I left a comment in hopes they will respond

EDIT (same day as above): I get a comment from Quickmill telling me to send them an email that is listed in the journal. I do, however I
am yet to get a response. Hopefully within the next few days I will receive one.

EDIT Dec 21 2014- Jan 25 2015+: On December 21st I send Lambomill/Quickmill/Cozrion (his new DA name) an email asking for an update on my Commission. He responds and..well.. I guess the way to describe it is he tried to bribe me into not getting mad at him? he mentioned doing a Full-Body instead of a Bust in exchange for having to wait so long. I agree, figuring it would make up for the wait. A few days pass and he asks me if he could do line-less instead since they wanted to experiment. Again, I agreed since I thought he might be more willing to do it if he had some artistic freedom. That was on December 31, 2014. I send him another email on January 8th 2015 in hopes to get an update, but I was given no response. I sent another Email Yesterday on January 25th, 2015 stating that I would like a refund. I'll give him about a week, and then from that point I can only assume that Mill has been playing me for a fool the entire time and has no intention of doing my Commission, or anyone elses.
