Stop asking, it's not happening

Posted by darkflame8 10 months ago

 

Why is it that every time I post, people automatically assume that I do commissions?

I have made it plain on multiple occasions and on my commissions page. I AM NOT TAKING COMMISSIONS.

I also made it clear that the more people that harass me about it the less chance I would ever reopen them again. It has now come to a point that when I state that I am not taking them, both on here and over on DA, the person enquiring decides to either berate me or try to guilt trip me into doing the commission. This is both disrespectful and disgusting behaviour, if I tell you politely that I am not taking commissions, then you, should respect my decision.

Ah, man. Sorry to hear that you have to put up with crap like that bud.

I remember you telling them that you have to pay for the models to.

Some people can be pests but I think it is ether ignorance or they are trying to bug you into doing it for them.

Ether way I am glad that you are holding your ground :)

I'm sorry that people aren't respecting your boundaries. May they give you the space you need soon.

Maybe just copy and paste a message in every post and submission Saying no commissions? I know it feels like over kill but they all should stop asking.

That implies people actually read what I put in the posts.

That aside, it shouldn't be necessary to put yourself on repeat. People should know that if someone is taking commissions it's well advertised. Try not to let it get to you too much. Some of us appreciate and value the works you come up with for your own enjoyment.

People need to look at the comission status before asking for one. Some people just ignore it, so it's better to just block them and be done with it if they keep bothering you.

I fail to see the point in blocking them, regardless of how annoying it is, I still prefer people can see my art. The only users I block are those that post derogatory comments or use my gallery to attack others.
