Before posting, please consider taking a look through our existing posts to get a better idea of how a post should look.

LJ-cut FAQ for long posts

WHO: List the aliases or business name of the person (Artist or Customer) this post is regarding. Censor all legal names, emails, paypal emails, addresses, or phone numbers.

WHERE: URL where they base their business out of. In case your beware is regarding something that occurred at an event (example: a con), you may list that too.

WHAT: Was it traditional art, digital art, sculpture, fursuit, jewelry, etc.?

WHEN: A rough time line of the situation from initial conversation, to 1st payment (or agreement of trade) to signs of trouble.

EXPLAIN: Tell your side here. What happened, what went wrong, where did it go wrong, have you attempted to fix the issue(s), ask for updates, refunds/legal warnings, etc. Post any additional screencaps here that correspond with your explanation. Be as clear, concise, and to the point (no additional drama, try not to ramble, no third parties/proxy writing) as possible.

PROOF: Feel free to place your screencaptures here, including albums, but please note the above about including them alongside claims in the EXPLAIN section, so as to make it easier to follow. Make sure you censor out unrelated third parties in your caps! DO NOT EMBED IMAGES! (This means they shouldn't be inserted, but only linked to.)


[Click here for a list of items that will result in an automatic rejection.]
No Proof - All posts must have proof. If it was lost, or via a way that doesn't have proof (in person, on the phone, etc.) then we simply can't take it.

Censoring - The bewaree's email address, real life name, and all non-related third parties must be fully censored. Initials or incomplete censoring will be rejected. The only exemption to the "real life name" rule is if your transaction transpired mostly on Facebook. Final decision is left to moderator discretion.

Proxy - Bewares should only be about your transaction. Any mentions of other individuals having problems will be rejected for removal. They are welcome to make their own post.

Non-Transaction - We don't take bewares where money, services, or goods haven't been exchanged.

Abusive Language - Bewares that contain excessive abusive language will be rejected for a rewrite. Please take a breather, and feel free to read over other posts to get a feel for what we allow.

General Warning Posts - We do not accept group submitted general warning posts on a user. Only direct business transactions.
