Not even two hours after I submit my latest story (after two months of nothing) I get SIX NOTES asking for Requests, and five of those six have NEVER contributed ONE thing to this site despite being members for YEARS.  Why?  Why do these people always ask and ask and ask for someone else to create something for them but they can't be bothered to even write something as simple as a Journal entry?  Is it really that hard to just TRY to create something?  Isn't that what this site is for?  To create, to try something new, to improve and to share your art?

I hate getting Notes, I hate getting asked for Requests and I hate being spammed by lazy people who use this site for their own personal amusement.  But do you know what I hate most of all?  Being asked to draw the SAME CHARACTER(s) over and over again!  I'm not even joking or exaggerating when I tell you I've drawn an O.C. for someone via commission and without fail I get them asking for the same O.C. to be drawn all over again without so much as a thank you.

Just because it was a Commission doesn't mean I WORK FOR YOU.  I work for no one.  I offered the opportunity for the sake of practicing while contributing.  I don't owe anyone anything, and no one owes me.

Just as I closed the Request window I have to do the same with Commissions.  And I hate having to do this. 

There are a large number of Deviants who not only respected my rules but respected everyone else on this site as well.  It's not fair to them that the staggering number of disrespectful, selfish users are contaminating this site with petty "threats" and insults, but I just can't take anymore. 

It's either decline all Requests/Commissions or I shut down my account.  I really don't want to do the latter.

I'm sorry to the Deviants who have been nothing but kind and patient with me over the years and have shown the same courtesy to everyone else time and time again.  But I'm at my limit.

Sorry.



MY PERSONAL & OFFICIAL RULES:

1. 
I reserve the right to DENY a Commission based on Content, Deviant's attitude or risk of being Banned.

2.  NO Requests
(unless a Deviant has earned one via my respect or contest)

3.  NO to any and all Correspondence  (I want Deviant's to find my page without the assistance of a third party)

4.  NO Notes

5.  NO Role-Playing  (it's ANNOYING to me, do NOT ask)

6.  NO Suggestions (unless I ASK for them)

7.  NO Art Trades

8.  Do NOT request something from me; get denied, then go pester someone else. Take the time to check and see if they'll even take a request. That's right, other people on this site DO in fact have lives outside this digital cyber space.

9.  Do NOT ask me to review your work.  This includes drawings & stories & character bios.  My opinion does not carry that much weight, you're just wasting everyone's time.  By everyone I mean YOU and ME.

10.  Do NOT whine about this. I have the right to set up rules just as much as you have the right to ask a Request. And everyone else on this site has personal rules as well, it's not an attack on JUST YOU, it's a way to deal with people who expect something for nothing. Many of my Watchers are very respectful to me, my privacy AND my rules. Why do you think that YOU are above everyone else?

11. Only those Deviant's who've done animations / complex pieces of art on my behalf are granted 'Unlimited Requests'.


**** No Requests because I was overwhelmed by ungrateful swarms. No Commissions because Art should be free. No Correspondence because I want people to find my gallery on their own and it feels like the groups are just using my work to get Watchers. No Notes they take too long to load and it feels like you're trying to use me. No Role-Playing because I DO NOT WANT TO, I tried it and hated it! No Suggestions because if I submit anything that remotely resembles what that person said, they think I went with their idea and it'd be like rewarding bad behavior. No Art Trades because why would I want to draw YOUR character?****

I would have noted this to you but... As the new manager of the Bellybursting group, I would love to add your backlog of stories to it. I had previously requested a few, but then they were denied, then I noticed you don't put anything into groups.

Thank you for not sending a note, I appreciate it.  And yes, I don't have any of my art as a part of any group, I prefer people to find my art on their own.  It keeps chronic requests at bay.

Not right away, but if you ever feel like it, I've started doing monthly contests in the group, with the prize being a story from me. Trying to encourage more bursting content out of people, as it is sorely lacking lately with many of the greats disappearing over the years.

That's good to know.  I was unaware of the diminishing 'bursting' community.

Depends on the content of the story.  If you want me to write about anything excessively graphic (language, depiction, assaults) I can and will decline.  what did you have in mind?
