Artist Beware: Mid-Nightshade/sephiroth.

So I'm not sure if this still counts towards being a beware and honestly I was debating whether or not to even post it, but I decided I'd try to warn others.

WHO: Mid-Nightshade/sephiroth.

WHERE: FA: Mid-Nightshade FA: sephiroth FA: danteokami.


WHEN: Oct. 30, 2016

EXPLAIN: So the artist was had posted a ych, and I liked the theme of it so I ended up bidding on both slots. I was the winner at the end because no one else had bid. After the auction ended the artist contacted me, I sent payment and refs and all was go so I thought. I waited until January 8th to contact him again asking about the YCH. He told me he had planned to work on art the following weekend. Well I waited and the weekend came and went. He never posted any art so I have no idea if he actually worked on art.

Following that I saw he had a discord server so I decided to join because updates on his FA weren't very often. I saw he was on pretty regularly and after some more time of waiting I sent another note on Feb. 24th. The note hadn't be read and I didn't want to call him out on his server because I know how furries can be, so in an attempt to try and get a respond I filed a dispute. A few days later I logged into discord to find I was kicked from the server so immediately I escalated my dispute into a claim. And the very day after is when I finally got a reply to my note on Mar. 3th. He was saying he would give me a refund that day. I replied back saying I did want the refund, but once again the note was never read. I ended getting my money back after Paypal decided in my favor.

PROOF: Screenshots throughout post.

Update: Okay bit of an update. A friend of the artist messaged me on facebook wanting explain. It was sent on April 14th, but because I have notifications of message from people who aren't friends turned off I didn't see it until yesterday. I declined to listen for two reasons. One being that it was pass the point for any explanations and two because the fact the artist himself couldn't be bothered to explain himself so why should I listen to one from a third party. I'm not trying to say the artist sent his friend though. Just that if the artist couldn't explain things himself then there's no point.

Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

I feel the beware is warranted. Thanks for the warning!

It irks the heck out of me when someone uses "becoming homeless" as a reason to not do work or refund.

I'm glad Paypal got you your money back.

See I'd be a lot more understanding of that if it weren't for the fact that I have to track down info for updates. I had to go through his mate's journal and discord chat just so I could know why it was taking so long because he hardly posted anything himself.

On top of that I knew I was behind a few other commissioners. Some for art and some for physical goods like fursuit heads or custom hoodies. And according to a journal by the mate none of the physical stuff was even started on even though some were ordered back in October. So with a combination of a lack of communication, unknown to do list length, a five month wait, and a few other factors I was pretty pissed.

He kicked you from his server? Wow, beware warranted. Glad you could get your money back!

Not sure it this is okay to add, but his mate isn't responding will to the bewares being posted about the two.

"Why can't we just steal from you?" essentially.

Responses like this always amuse me, because a large chunk of A_B's readership are artists who do this for a living. Get your work done. Don't steal people's money. It's not rocket science.
