I agree with this. I ordered from a trusted commissioner, twice. The first experience was great. The 2nd experience was not up to par with the first. While it was worked out through some effort on my part, it should not be the job of the person who requested a commission to hunt down the commissioner to get what they payed for. It goes to show you that this is an "at your own risk" business when in reality it shouldn't be.
I understand that these are human beings with lives and issues that are putting time an effort into making our requests... but there is a huge difference when that interferes with the business. Or if there is a severe issue, then it must be communicated and things can be dealt with from there.
I'm not saying this to stop people from commissioning, but I doubt I will do it again. I do think that this is a good warning for those that take commissions to take this more seriously.
