Beware: Perikoala

edit: Resolved! Got my part, everything OK!


WHO: www.furaffinity.net/user/perikoala (also on tumblr)

WHAT: A digital art trade

WHEN: It has been ongoing since August 13, 2014.

PROOF/EXPLAIN: (Note: The conversations are in spanish, as it is my main language, but I've translated them in the bottom of each screenshot.)
I and Perikoala agreed to do a trade in August 13, 2014. [Proof]
As suggested in the screenshot, we worked out the rest of the details through skype.
In September 6, 2014, I finished my part: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/14469044/ [screenshot], she said thanks, everything ok, so I waited for her part.

About six months after the agreement, I noticed that she was offering more trades and requests and later free raffles on tumblr [proof], while I hadn't received updates about my piece, so I noted her on February 2015, to which she replied she was sorry, that she hadn't been able to finish it, and promised me she hadn't forgot. [proof] [my reply]

After this I sent a message which wasn't replied to. I figured it had to do with her accounts being inactive, so I tried to reach her on tumblr. After this, she finally answered to me on FA the day August 12, 2015. [her reply]

Now, I completely understand that life gets in the way, but it throws me off that she kept/keeps accepting free requests, hosting more raffles (another) and trades although I still don't have updates about mine from 2014.
This is a trade she did with a friend of mine, for example, among others and if they were from old agreements I would have understood, but according to my friend who recently traded with her, they agreed to do it on september 7, meaning she had to wait less than a month for hers. [screenshot]
Currently, on her profile, she's also offering free requests.

I sent her a reminder note in October 7th, which is still unread. [proof]
After that, she has been online and even doing art streams, all while ignoring my note. [proof]

I don't blame Perikoala for whatever that made her too busy to work on it, I completely understand serious stuff might come up, and I must note that we had also agreed to take our time, no rush at first; but I think over a year is more than enough.

In her note she says she's going to remake it. Maybe ask to see the original WIP, if she still has it?

I've had stuff pop up and redo trades because I've improved.

I'd also try sending another note, or leave a shout asking to read it. FA can, and does, eat notes. If the shout gets nuked, and the note is still unread, then it's proof of ignoring.

Sure, I totally get remaking a trade when you improve.

I'd ask for the wip of the original image, but not only it's been a while so there's a chance she doesn't have it; I'm certain she's ignoring me, as I stated in my post, this has already happened before (and it's been enough time so she could contact me herself as well) so I'm not really in the mood to keep trying to get an answer, to be honest.
