Beware: Perikoala

edit: Resolved! Got my part, everything OK!


WHO: (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: [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.
