This is a lost contact of Dragondoodles or Draconemignis of Furaffinity. I commissioned them back in 2015 at BLFC (biggest little fur con) for a badge, and have been promised multiple times of its completion, and have apparently been dropped out of contact.
They have deactivated FA, and the email provided for contact bounces now so I'm assuming thats been disabled. Did they do a name change? Does ANYONE have contact as this was a 40 dollar badge and Id love to fund another honest artist with that money rather than just be out the cash. I've asked for refunds over email, notes on FA (pre-disable), and shouts. Have yet to be contacted and since it was an in person cash transaction (I have a physical receipt however) I cant file a dispute.
Any suggestions? help please...
Update 11/23/2016: I reached out to the "Dragondoodles" Facebook page via facebook chat not expecting anything since the page seems abandoned. However; the message has been seen. No response though. Ive sent the message below:
And noticed they were not responding. So I left this as a message, hopefully they get in contact with me. Blocked out my email since its not needed here in this forum.
"I see this message has been seen, if you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org again id like to discuss my refund for my badge please."
Edit to update 11/23/2016: My second message has been seen on facebook but not responded to. I have left them a message stating they have 24 hours from a specific time to respond or a full beware will be posted.
Feeling like I wont be seeing my art or my money, but I'd like to just warn others of this potential scam.
I first contacted him through his DeviantArt page at: http://greycat-rademenes.deviantart.
I tried contacting him again through his G-mail, through DeviantArt, through FurAffinity, and even through Tumblr, but he hasn't been in touch with me. He even took the time to respond to someone else on his DA page a few days ago, but didn't respond to me.
I did receive one part of my commission through his Google Drive, but it would be really helpful if he sent me the links to my other pic which may be on his Google Drive. Both pics I commissioned are NSFW pics.
I just sent him an email through his old e-mail address from Yahoo. I just hope he responds to that one.
If anyone here has any other method of contacting him, any help would be appreciated.
I also don't remember any friends of this artist, but I know some people who drew commissions for them. But it's kinda creepy to contact them about their commissioner.
The artist nickname was Nonus, hope it's OK to mention it.
This was the last time I've heard from them. I'm hoping someone has been in contact with them and can just relay that they should respond to my shouts or email me or something?
I sent them another note as a nudge on the 15th of this month, but both notes are thus-far unread and I don't know their email or any site they're more active on to get in touch with them.
They haven't yet sent payment, but I also hold off on sending completed images until payment is complete so I'm not especially worried about that, I'd just really like to get their icon to them so I can tick it off my queue. ;u;
Does anyone here happen to know if they have an FA or Weasyl account? Or perhaps be able to point them my way?
On June 25th, 2015, I paid Computernurd @ deviantART for a "Your Character Here" pixel doll. This was around the time that the deviantART community became aware that commissions should be paid for via the "goods/services" option, as paying for commissions as gifts had been commonplace previously. Thus, I paid via "friends/family" and didn't see the issue with it until later, so I'm as much at fault here as the artist.
Seven months later, I still haven't seen the commission and my requests for an update on August 31st and a refund on November 11th have been unanswered. In fact, it seems that this artist hasn't been online at all since then. Does anyone here happen to know how to get into contact with them? There are no alternate accounts listed on their page, unfortunately.
Thanks in advance!
A month later, about November or so I managed to sketch out their commission and email it to them. They are very grateful and excited for the picture and told me to continue on.
Fast Forward to January and now with less work on my hands I start working on their commission again. However this time when I email them a WIP I received no response. Concerned about this I went to check their FurAffinity as an alternate means of contacting them but they seem to have disabled their page and so far I have found no other way of contacting them.
This raises the following issue: I was paid in full and if the commissioner cannot be contacted in the next month the abandonment clause of my ToS states I can drop the commission and refund them, however some degree of progress was already started on the picture, should I still do a full refund or should I keep the equivalent of the progress so far.
If you have any information on WolfyDarkPaws or advice on how to handle the refund situation do let me know.
EDIT: I finally managed to communicate with the commissioner again. It appears it was a case of emails not being recieved. Thank you for your feedback!
Okay so this post may be a bit backward to what people are used to, but bear with me.
At Anthrocon this year I had my artbox lost or stolen at the very end of my trip, in that I lost $250++ in art supplies, but more importantly, I lost all my receipts and and commission files that I had commissioners fill out at the con. I've spent months chasing the hotel/motels I stayed at and airports I used trying to get them to see if they had it incase it ever popped up, but repeatedly never got any responses from them beyond "we'll keep an eye out".
I had my phone number, address, email, social media links etc etc in it, but its clear someone prefered to keep all my art supplies instead.
At this point I have completed about a dozen AC commissions, the ones I could remeber.
This is where I need help, I suffer from memory loss and recall disabilities and I just cannot for the life of me remember or figure out who else commissioned me at AC this year and for what, so I'm hoping at least some of my commisioners will see this!
Also if you know someone who commissioned me and is waiting on me please send them my way! I've responded to everyone who's contacted me since AC but unfortunately that was only a few people, and I don't have anyones contact info.
Fastest way to get a hold of me is through email at Chronidu[AT]gmail[DOT]com!

WHERE: In person at the Ohio furry convention, Morphicon this past May.
WHAT: Badge commission to be completed at the convention.
WHEN: Paid in full for a badge slot on Saturday of Morphicon.
EXPLAIN: I had a buyer pay in full for a badge commission to be done at the con, they did not however have access to the character references right then, took my business card and told me they'd email me them shortly. I never received any email, and the buyer never returned to my table the remainder of the convention.
After the convention I sent out an email to the one provided on the buyer's commission form in hopes of touching base and getting the badge done. I still have not received replies to my messages. Since they paid up front in cash, I can't refund without contact.
The character they wanted was pretty unique (they had a costume of it at Morphicon from what I recall?), and I hope someone in the area might know who this is and how to contact them based on this. The character had a CRT monitor/TV head with a humanoid body and punkrocker jacket.
Just a shot in the dark, I'd hate for such a nice person to lose out on getting a badge, and for this to be the first 'missing person' I've dealt with at a con before.
WHAT: A traditional chibi couple set
WHEN: Midwest Furfest 2014.
PROOF: Commission was made in person at MFF, paid in cash. Screenshots of phone conversations are here [NSFW warning, ref sheets] including one final request for contact on 7/23/15 which has so far been ignored.
EXPLAIN: My boyfriend [QuinTheOtter] and I commissioned Baebunny Friday at MFF 2014 for a traditional chibi set. Quin paid in cash. We found Bae Saturday, he said he wasn't done, we said that's fine. Quin and I agreed that if he needed to mail them after the con that's fine. Fast forward to now, we have no art for our money 8 months later and I am posting here to raise awareness of his degraded business practices. Judging by his FA page I am not alone.
I lost contact with a con-goer who commissioned a tiny badge from me during Anthrocon 2015.
I have tried texting the phone number he gave in his order form twice (couple days apart) so I can address and ship his package and unfortunately, no response. His badge name was "Kodi" and the character is a chubby, brown Kodiak bear with glasses (description, no ref sheet link).
I did manage to track down a FA user with the same name and character description and sent them a note, but so far it is unread (FA: Kodi.ack). If someone here knows him or has another site/and email I could use for contact that'd be amazing! Thanks in advance~
Last year (July 2014) I commissioned Kaymurph (tumblr) but lost contact after I had sent payment. I've sent her multiple emails (to 3 different emails) & haven't received a reply. I see that she tweets infrequently & I think updates her instagram from time to time, but I just haven't been able to get in touch with her via email or tumblr asks. A friend (who also commissioned her) did say she had tried to tweet @ her from time to time but never received a response.
If someone here knows her or knows how to get in contact her, that'd be amazing! Thanks.
If someone could help me out I'd really appreciate it. I haven't had any issues or anything, it just bugs me that I forgot their name.
I wanted to check in with this community and see if anyone has heard from the artist Holydust recently (www.furaffinity.net/user/holydust). I have an old outstanding commission with her, and the last time I heard anything was in 2013. She seems to have gone radio dark on all of her art sites and stopped responding to email.
Has anyone heard anything from her?
Edit: Hey! I just wanted to thank everyone for their help, I was able to get in touch with Cateagle here on LJ as it goes to a currently working email for them, so contact has been re-established! Thank you everyone.
The artist is EyeKissa (deviantART) or iKissa (FurAffinity). She has been inactive on both sites for a long time now and I haven't been able to contact her via notes there. I've also emailed the address that was attached to her PayPal, but that was several weeks ago and I still haven't heard back from her.
So, if someone here knows her and how I could contact her, it would be much appreciated!
