reposting from my adopt account. beware dealing with this user. just found out she blocked my bf after he politely asked her what i did wrong.
so, i have no remorse submitting this PSA. i will not be taking this down for any reason.
i am still convinced i have done nothing wrong, and she is being a coward by hiding behind block buttons. i've absolutely had it with her shady behavior and i'm not going to sit here and be nice anymore.
unfortunately, today i found out i was blocked by a user, @/pieology / @/pietastic-creations
the last couple of interactions with this user was actually very pleasant. which leads me to be absolutely baffled that this behavior has suddenly come forth.
now, some time ago, my friend (who will remain anon) and i were planning on using sharks commercially, as pieology had confirmed this to be OK with her.
this cap is from my friend's end, as i do not have pie on skype nor discord.
however, this attitude did a 180 and pieology completely revoked rights of commercial use.
she lied about having no idea about it in the first place, yet we had a screencap of her saying otherwise.
here is where she decided to go back on her word, months after we had gotten the OK.
(which in many cases can actually be very illegal, as we had already agreed to terms that it WAS allowed and kept buying her product with the agreement of use.)
while i was upset, my gummi sharks did not play a huge part in my story, so i began to start selling them off, which pie was completely alright with.
[notice how this one is approved! pie is the only one who can approve selling journals]
after some attempts of trying to sell, i managed to sell off quite a bit!
but only recently, did they not begin to sell as well.
i took the journal out of the group, updated the journal to include trades and submitted it to the group once again.
but.. as the days went by, the request went on ignored. only recently, did it expire. not only has mine expired, but she intentionally let my friend's (mentioned above) expire, too.
[you can see by the small white llama next to the group name, that i am blocked]
i found out tonight that i've been blocked by her main account, not only on this account, but on my main as well. i'm also blocked on her toyhouse.
[cryoseismic, kavaro, on toyhou.se]
now, what i've done?? i have absolutely no idea. she has not come forth to me or even given me ANY strikes about my behavior, which is explained in her ToS:
i was never told i had broken any rules, so what is with the immediate blocking? i had not even purchased a design by her for months
unfortunately, i do not have the link to her live ToS, as i'm blocked. with dA's new shitty block system, i can't even look at her profile/pages anymore.
a kind soul helped me with the ToS!
here is a live link: T.O.S. [Updated!]
and the archived, just in case it changes for whatever reason: archive.is/5uA4R
a few weeks ago, i offered some of the sharks to her from my journal, to which she happily agreed to trade with me.
[first interaction: absolutely pleasant! no rudeness, all smiles]
however, i made one more offer the other day. i hoped to trade the last two sharks i had that pie was interested in, for some adopts she had that i liked.
from the last offer, i was under the impression that it was just fine to offer again.
[my sent pm, once again, all pleasant, no rudeness]it was read, but never responded to.
i am posting this journal to let others know to be VERY wary of her behavior. because if she can do it to me, she can do it to anyone.
i have not bugged her, been rude to her or even started any fights with her over her gummi sharks or her rules about commercial use. i've been very quiet and have kept to myself.
also, i am posting this journal just in case she decides to lie about what i have done, or make up some sort of false claim about me. this is to show my side, and what i have done entirely.
i am left completely in the dark not only in a business stance but in a consumer stance where i was still interested in what she had to sell. do take note that i am friends with someone who is currently in a quarrel with her, but by NO means does that mean i should be lumped in by association. i absolutely do not appreciate that mindset, and choosing to latch on to that mindset only proves poor judgement, immaturity and the lack of respect for the truth. i am not that person. to assume i have the same intentions is incredibly disrespectful.
i will not be taking this journal down until i get an answer and get things cleared up. as far as i am concerned, i am innocent and if my name ends up getting smeared, i will have this journal to back up my claims.
it pains me that i have to do this, as i enjoyed pie's designs and overall demeanor, but unfortunately she took a turn for the worse and decided to sweep things under the rug instead of acting like a professional business owner and stepping up to her responsibilities.

My Terms of Service
it's been a long time coming, and i'm sorry if this comes off as rude, pathetic, whatever it may be but it's been building up over years and years
i'm so tired of being called guilty by association just because i'm friends with someone who has faff with someone else for whatever fucking reason. I AM NOT THEM. i do not control them, i do not tell them what to do. i have my own mind, my own motives, my own reasons. and i rarely have malicious intent for any fucking thing that i do.
it's happened so many times over the years and quite frankly, i'm just tired of it. and i'm sorry to those who got hurt along the way. i know i have a lot of apologizing myself to do, but it's likely the people involved won't even see this bulletin, and that's something i need to accept. it started with faeryths by sakiadopts. i bought them because i loved them, they fit so well into my story as little deities for one of my realms. i didn't buy them because of their "resemblance/alikeness" to dreamies. that wasn't my intention. i didn't make the connection to dreamies at all when i first saw them. but that doesn't mean i had malicious intent when i kept buying them and still buy them to this day. it hurts that people would say i'm only buying them because they are "knock-offs", which i truly don't believe they are.
next up was the whole opri fiasco. yes, my best friend is the one who made them. at first, like with faeryths, i did not notice the alikeness to beau's species. it wasn't until beau pointed it out to me, that i started to freak out about it. my best friend was incredibly fragile at the time and i just didn't know what to do. i had to support her, and i know it was wrong in the sense that i was going about it, and again i apologize for it. it doesn't excuse my actions but i wasn't doing it to hurt beau or the species as a whole. it's hard when your friend already feels like a failure and is hanging on by threads for her passions and her life. i should have taken better control of the situation and helped her redesign them. and i accept that that fault is on my shoulders. but i am not the one who continued to make them- i did keep buying them but for the purpose of supporting my friend and the fact that i would be turning them into humanoids and tossing their species traits aside. in the end, she stopped making them after collapsing to the pressure.
next, there's harepys and gummi sharks. i mistakenly bought harepys because i thought they were so cute. i do see now that they are alike to nus, and that's why i've made the decision to sell mine. i initially had plans to turn them into my own species, or into humanoids, but the incident with beau just prevents me from connecting to them because i now see how alike the species are- i can't ignore my good morals. so i am separating myself from owning anymore species that look alike to others, for the sake of my own sanity.
as for gummi sharks, i have no intentions to slander pie's name. while i am upset she doesn't allow commercial use for her sharks anymore, it's really not a big deal to me. i've been selling off the sharks i don't use, and that is honestly it. so if anyone hears rumours that i'm slandering or making a rally against pie, it is simply not true. again, i am NOT guilty just because i am friends with someone who is offending. stop that asinine assumption. it's not helping anyone involved. that, as a mindset, needs to die off immediately.
for those who don't know, i suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and paranoid personality disorder, along with borderline personality disorder. i completely shut down when it comes to conflict. i go into such a panic and it gets to the point of where i can't do anything but sit and cry while my brain frantically tries to figure out what to do or say. it's not an excuse for my behavior, but i can apologize for it. i'm getting better with it in the end and as much as i wish i could go back and right all the wrongs i've done, i know it's a far reach and likely won't happen in the ways i want it to.
but you can assure that i do not have malicious intent for anything- anymore. after years and years of drama, even before faeryths and opris, it's been emotionally and physically draining and damaging. i'm tired of it- it's why i've been keeping to myself and hiding away from everyone. i can't handle anymore of it. i just want to be at peace and make friends and ties with others in this community. but i feel i can't do that until all amends are made. you're welcome to bring up anything i've done so i can explain myself, clarify or apologize for it. i want a clean slate and i want to move forward without having all of this baggage tying me down from being happy.
so once again, paypal has STOLEN 50$ of my money for fraudulent "rejected direct debit" horseshit claims.
they pulled this on me a month ago, and now it's happening again.
i need an alternative to paypal, because i'm really tired of getting fucked over by a shitty company.
does anyone have any suggestions?
i know a lot of you know about this by now, and some people got a mixed message from what i posted on my complaints board about it!
i'm just here to say, in no way, do i condone their actions- and i am in no way comforting them or believing that what they are doing is OK, etc. i am not a pedophile-apologist in any shape or form or fashion.
i only had to speak out about the vague-ing because only after did someone pm me with who it was, did i realize that it does break toyhouse's rules and my own for my board. i apologize if my message came off as if everyone involved was "bullying" them, which i certainly don't believe that was happening, but i was much more concerned about my thread being taken down in the long run if i didn't try to control it after that. yikes. i hope you guys understand! i know a couple of people got the wrong message from my post, so i hope this clears up any confusion!
if you do not know about it yet, please PM me, ESPECIALLY if you are a minor. contact with this person needs to be avoided at all costs.

this user has tried to resale an adopt by me for higher than he paid just because he drew them on a base, which i don't allow.
