Hi everyone,

Just a quick update that Stellary is back on FA under the account Spiffy (https://www.furaffinity.net/user/spiffy), and seems to plan to get back into taking commissions, judging by their recent journal:



This person still owe me 165$, and we're pushing 7 years or 8 years on this debt. I'm not the only one they still owe money too, there's several posts here in this community about them and their various accounts, as well as their quite bad manners.

So, I urge caution to everyone who gets into business with them. They're a great artist, I love their style, but, unfortunately, the talent is wasted by their cavalier attitude towards business and anyone who is not them.

EDIT:
They just posted something with a comment that may be the most truthful thing they said in years, at least online:



Now everybody's warned. At least if you peruse their scraps. ;)

Man, sorry they still haven't refunded you.

But thank you for giving a heads-up to the community about the new account.

LOL, their new TOS says that they'll post you on a beware site if you do a Paypal chargeback. I would LOVE to see them post here.

Are they just pretending not to be Stellary or something? Because I don't see OP on their shiny new commission queue.

They're not pretending not to be Stellary, because, back when this whole thing was unfolding, they were regularly hopping through names and linking the old and new accounts together on FA with the famous 'I've moved to' messages. *Shrugs*

They just don't care about the others. I'm not the only one they still owe money to, you can read on the previous journals about this person, as well as some shouts and comments on their various accounts through FA.

But, as they stated several times, since they can't pay because [insert sob story] and they can't draw because [insert sob story with a medical twist], we have no right to ask for the owed art or money because they are in a situation and have more important things to do than refund us or draw the art. They'll get to it whenever they can, and we should be thankful that they promised to draw at some point between now and the hot death of the universe, and, anyway, the money has been spent, too bad for us.

*Takes a deep breathe.* Sorry, bit of a rant there, but that's basically a summary of their interactions with me and, as far as I'm aware, everyone whom they owe money to.

And people are still commissioning her?

Yes. Because they do not know. It will be a very good day for everyone when people will be checking Artists_Beware before they commission anyone. It will force such repeat offender like them to either change their practices or go out of business.

So I guess, this is a typical case of "I don't get the outrage, everything is fine when I commission her!". But god help you if something goes wrong.

We verified it's Stellary based on cross-posted art pieces, and the same character "Inky" showing up between two accounts.

I didn't think this could get any worse, but that update. YIKES.

That update, well at least they're not trying to defend their behavior...? This is wild, why not try to better themselves when they see there's a problem with their worth ethic rather than embrace it in such a childish way?
