Beware: emkhe/wickkh

WHO: FA: emkhe DA: wickkh

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/emkhe/

WHAT: Design trade

WHEN: Feb. 4th 2017 - Present

EXPLAIN: Feb. 4th (or possibly 3rd, I can't remember), user emkhe makes a now-deleted journal calling for design trades. I really enjoy designing characters so I replied not long after it went up and I just happened to see it. Unfortunately the journal was deleted fairly quickly afterwards, so I don't have a cap of it.

Feb. 4th - emkhe notes me not long after my comment confirming the trade. I respond telling them what I would like and ask them what they would like in return.

Feb. 11th - I hadn't heard back from them so I send another note, just in case they had missed the previous note.

March 4th - A month later, after I had assumed they were no longer interested, they finally replied, telling me what they would like from me for my half. I respond, telling them I was moving but would be back soon.

March 14th - I deliver my half of the trade. Link to design. Note is still unread as of this writing.

March 19th - Having delivered a design and still not heard back, I send another note checking in. Note is still unread as of this writing.

April 1st - I find through their adoptables stash link that they have a deviantart, where they are active uploading art and responding to comments. I leave a shout asking them to reply to my note on FA.

Despite them being around and active, I have not gotten a reply. I've put work into a design (even if they refuse to open the note and look at it), but I haven't been able to get a response from them since March 4th. I don't know how they are with commissions, but I certainly can't recommend trading with them as of now.

I will wait another week or two and then likely put the design up for sale. I'm quite disappointed, as I was really looking forward to seeing what they would come up with; I've always wanted a junco character, they're my favourite birds.

EDIT: After seeing them upload more art but still not respond to me, I sent one final note informing them I consider the trade canceled and that the design was going up for sale. I'll update if I ever hear anything back.

PROBABLY LAST EDIT: I thought to check my outbox at some point after sending the trade cancellation note and it looks like they've finally been read. Still no response however, and I doubt I'll ever receive one.

That's disappointing to hear about Emkhe because they had very nice art. I hope everything gets resolved.

They are also on weasyl under the emkhe name, I wondered why it sounded familiar. Disappointing to see them fail to respond to you, I hope they do soon.

I've had previous experience trading designs with emkhe but these were designs/adoptables that were already done and we had stored.

I had no problem trading with them back then so it's a shame to hear they are not very reliable when it comes to actual design making for trades.

Honestly I wasn't even expecting them to do their half as fast as I did. I just wanted a response. I was really happy with how my design came out and I wanted them to be happy, too.

Needless to say, it kind of sucked the fun out of the whole trade to see that they're around and uploading art and replying to people, but just ignoring me in particular. Why did they even ask for a trade in the first place if a reply would be too difficult to give? This is my second time having a problem like this and it sucks because I want to be able to enjoy the occasional trade.

(Sorry for the rambling! I officially canceled the trade today and it was pretty disappointing.)

That design is so gorgeous tho. They're missing out.

Thank you! Now I'm just hoping I can sell it so I'm not at a total loss for my time. It's a shame, though, I was pretty proud of it.

I did an art trade with Emkhe myself, a maned lioness for a blue ferret in return. They took VEEEEEERY long to finish the trade, to the point I almost forgot we had done a trade when they sent me the finished piece.

We settled on our wanted designs around April 24th from my old notes with them, and I delivered with my design a little over a week later. Didn't get a response from them for about almost 2 months, I think they did pass that mark but I don't remember too well since this was in early 2016.

I drew this for them http://www.furaffinity.net/view/19869523/ and in return I got this http://sta.sh/019y5mzcmou4 . I myself really love the design and since I wasn't in any rush to get this character, the fact that they responded to me with the design completed was good enough for me, but this just showed me to not commission them in the future
