2 years to long.

Okay, I’ve been very hesitant about brining this situation up in public, but I’m quite frustrated at this point, so here it goes.

I commissioned a partial fursuit from chapeljax back on July 31, 2004, right after Anthrocon. I paid the full amount immediately of 470 USD via paypal and sent my character reference at that time as well. It has been 2 years and I have seen nothing but a single arm paw (photograph) since then. I have emailed repeatedly, attempting to establish completion dates at –least- 2 months in advance. All attempts have failed. I have been informed that my suit is 65% complete. I have asked to see photos, which I think is quite reasonable considering the circumstances, yet I have not been granted any (save for the arm stated above). If even a foamed head or –something- that would put me at ease a little. I have emailed Jax twice in the past week + a few days and have received no response. I posted in his LJ, where he informed me that the first email did not go through. I emailed the second time and have not received any reply. Does he not answer his gmail account? Do I have the wrong email or what? I know fursuit construction is –not- easy work, but neither is continuing to be ever so patient after shelling out 470 USD for a service over 2 years ago and having almost nothing to show for it.

Wow. Any one else having issues?

I apologize and I’m not trying to get the wambulance involved, but I think I have a right to say –something-.

Uh... it doesn't? But it's confusing, because it took me a bit to figure out what the heck teamrs was talking about.

Its one of those tranny bandwagon things. Jax is actually a woman.

Well, then she clearly wants to be referred to as a guy, and we're not here to talk about other folks' behind their backs.
*Shrugs and puts up hands in defense* So either way works, but lets' pick one and go with it to cut down on confusion, and get back to the subject?

he is a she.

*nods* If Jax wants to be called a man I'll call him a man. That's what I prefer too, I've Identified as trans for quiet some time and hope that people will have the respect to refer to me as I ask.

What does it matter if Jax wants to be called a dude? He still isn't getting his work done promptly and THAT is what this is all about.

I don't think it matters what Jax wants to be called, or what Jax really is. It's just confusing if half the people are saying "he" and half are saying "she" and you don't know what's going on.

From what I got told it's not transsexuality, she just likes to pretend to be a gay guy online.

I apologise if she is trans and I have the story wrong.

True, true.. I say just call him a he if that's what he wants to be called.

Eh, I think we should to stick to the fursuit commission topic. Sorry!
