This, so much this.
Here’s a game I don’t feel we hear enough about: Skies of Arcadia. I first played this game on the Sega Dreamcast and it was wonderful. It’s a very fun and very enticing JRPG that takes place in a world full of floating islands, flying ships, and sky pirates.
It has a very upbeat and positive tone and story which is a breath of fresh air in relation to all the darkness and cynicism in most RPGs. Does anybody else know about this game and how awesome it is?
Okay, so many of my watchers on deviantART are already aware of this, but last month I was scammed for thousands of dollars by a user named Pixlett / ToxicMutagen. (They both use the same PayPal address) Pixlett has since deactivated her account.
My account of the fraud:
Pixlett bought some artwork from me for very large sums of money. Then, a few months later, I notice that a couple grand went missing from my PayPal, because she filed a credit card chargeback against me, claiming that she never got the item. Obviously, it was digital artwork, so there was no physical item to ship. She did this for every single piece of artwork she bought from me, and even after backing myself up with a ton of evidence, PayPal ruled in her favor.
And now, today, it has happened AGAIN. Pixlett has filed MORE chargebacks against me, putting me into negative $2,000 in my PayPal account. I start school in a week and need money to pay for my new textbooks, supplies, and gas, but looks like that’s not gonna happen thanks to this fraud.
I have set up a PayPal Donation button on my page, where you can help me out. Even just a dollar helps. Small amounts add up quickly, and I need to get out of the negatives as soon as possible.
I apologize, because I never ask for help, but this is just beyond my capacity of fixing in such a short amount of time. Several other people were also affected by this scammer, so please consider helping them out too.
Thank you! ;u; If you have any questions or concerns, you can message me on here or on my dA.
FUCKING SIGNAL BOOST THIS
ALSO DO NOT TAKE COMMISSIONS OR SELL ADOPTABLES TO THE PERSON MENTIONED
also - wow … WOW .. I´m fucking mad about this person and paypal - this is really fucked up. this is really a slap in the face for digital artists …
Signal boost! I know neither I, nor do I think many of my followers buy or sell “adoptables” via dA, but I think this is still relevant none the less!
Wow not cool of the commissioner to do. OP have you flied an artists_bware on livejournal because over 2000 dollars in loss (with evidence of payment+final artwork) is absolutely criminal X_X
The funny thing I see about this is sometimes there are ‘three’ types of people. Most of these I fall into one category or the other. But then you get to the tea and coffee one. I’ve tried and basically hate BOTH.

Just so you know, I love all of you.
