Artists Beware Ryunwoofie [Resolved]



Sent payment on Noverber 4 2014 09:01:42 PST and still waiting

Discussion of transaction: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hxt1skkx7peprw5/Ryuwoofie%20Proof%202.PNG?dl=0

Paypal receipt: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h1fzuapixcfa9o5/Ryuwoofie%20Proof.PNG?dl=0

The first having to resend the info from the original discussion of the transaction.
And the second reminding woofie again with dropbox links of Paypal receipt and original notes of the transaction

I took a emergency commission of a Soft Shade Pinup that Ryunwoofie offered on November 4 2014 12:30 pm est.

I have sent a few reminders since then saying I have yet to be added on Ryunwoofie's [To-Do-List]
The first one I sent on January 29th 2015 after sending the notes and being told I would be added
the next day or two later I gone though their [To-Do-List] find I'm missing still missing from the list and
found out Ryunwoofie had 77 other commissions to do at that time

Between the time I have been waiting o Ryunwoofie, she has posted several YCH's and taken more commissions while mainly posting
personal art. As of typing this I've gone though Ryunwoofie's [To-Do-List] again she owes 95 other pictures.
That is not counting myself even after the reminders, two pictures of friends not listed and any others that might not also be on the list.

I can not recommend commissioning this artist due to their lack of professionalism and to say the least the massive backlog Ryunwoofie has.

Edit: As of April 13 9:30 pm-ish Ryunwoofie has issued a full refund of the 65$
Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

Wooow. Never heard of a list that long. Sorry to hear.

I do not deny that I have dug myself into hole and I am fully ashamed in myself for getting so in art debt. I made myself transparent and didn't hide that fact from newcomers and such. I wish you would have contacted me prior to this to work things out. I am having some personal issues involving my babysitter and hope to get things worked out within the next month or so to get back into work. I do apologize for promises and deadlines and not delivering. That is fully my fault. If you wish to contact me for a refund you may do so. Again I do apologize for all the stress I have put your through.

Also I'd like to mention that I did forget to save your information initially so that was entirely my fault, also forgot to add you to the list again as well. But around Febuary or earlier (I can't remember) I contacted all my clients regarding outstanding commissions if they wanted a refund. While a few wanted refunds a huge chunk were more than willing to wait while I delt with my issues. So all on my Que are aware of the list I have. Granted you didn't get that note, again was my fault and I deeply apologize.

I am slow on updating my list recently and that is my fault. I'm hoping after the baby's first year things will go much smoother for me.

I'm always more than willing to work things out I just wish you'd mention your concerns earlier or asked for a refund.

Your concerns are pretty valid, but my advice is to talk things out with the artist before you post them to A_B. If you need to, send a note that says, "If you don't contact me by X time, I will make a post on Artists_Beware"
It's been maybe six months and I don't see anything in your notes about a refund. You mention her long queue, but never seemed to mention it to her.
She shouldn't have taken so long on the commission, that's for sure, but I think you jumped the gun just a little. Not saying this is an invalid beware or anything like that, just a bit more preemptive than it needed to be. At least, that's the impression I'm getting reading the screenshots available here.
Apr. 13th, 2015 10:39 pm (UTC)
Given that the OP did try to contact the artist, several times, just to be remind the artist to be put on their TO-DO List, I think its understandable the OP felt it was ok to just go to A-B
Apr. 13th, 2015 10:49 pm (UTC)
I understand that. I still feel as I said.
Apr. 13th, 2015 11:51 pm (UTC)
I agree. I like Ryun and her work a lot, but as a moderator and a long-time member of this community it bothers me that folks are essentially trying to run the OP off. If we didn't feel this beware was valid, then it wouldn't have gone through the queue.

That is still a lot of work, even though I'm very happy that Ryun is willing to take care of it. How many other times have we seen this from other people? Yet no one else has tried the run the OP off like here.

I agree and I really don't find the "well you should have contacted the artist again" comments helpful when the OP has posted that they have already sent reminders or aren't on the to do list.

I know her list is long but honestly everytime I've emailed her I've always gotten a response within 24 to 48hrs after I've sent it. I do always recommend emailing artists in general because fa's note system has been so unreliable. WhIle it's not excusing the behavior in any means it's always just a good thing to try in general.

^This, seconding as it's helped me get into contact with elusive people. If you can find a email in your correspondence or listed on their page publicly somewhere, use it if you're having trouble with contact.
Apr. 14th, 2015 01:27 am (UTC)
Your refund has been sent. Again I deeply apologize for the lack of following through on things that have been said would get done. I will do my best to update my list accordingly and do so when asked if reminded by my customers in the future. I by no means wished to cause you any distress at any time. Thank you again for your time.
Apr. 14th, 2015 01:57 am (UTC)
Thank you and sorry for being unresponsive till now, just got home from work that and last A-B took longer to go up then this one.
I'll make a edit you've taken care of this asap

This is being screened. If you would like to submit your beware you have to do so by posting to the community using the "Post to community" link at the top. You will have to make a separate beware for each artist.

Be sure to include proof of your attempts to contact them, and ensure that censoring is correct. Just from a glance, I can see that one artist's email has been left uncensored in the notes.

Additionally, photobucket tends to be a not-so-nice host. Make sure all your screencaps don't resize to the point where we can't read them.

Once you've submitted your bewares to us, keep an eye out on the email that you used to register with Livejournal. From there we will either send you an approval notice, or a rejection notice if we need changes.
