Art Dealing Etiquette
~by Colossith

Time and again issues of character/premade/commissions disputes arise, be it someone not knowing who owns a character, someone claiming a character back, an artist not adding permissions or a commission not being complete.

So how do you avoid such trouble?

1: Research!
Do you know the person who has approached you or you are buying from? Are they reliable with payment and/or delivery? Art they active? Check their previous threads or current threads! Does their ToS (Terms of Service) meet your personal preferences? Beware that some users include "will take this back" criteria. Others will state you cannot sell on a piece of work. It is down to you to know this! Breaking a ToS is serious and the administration often cannot step in to help!

2: Your claim!
What is your claim to the art you wish to produce, trade, etc? You need to establish that, make it clear in your ToS and stick to it. Don't abuse your ToS to get back at people through petty arguments - that puts people off dealing with you. DO use your ToS to exercise your rights as an artist.

Consider the art's origin, did you make it? Is the art of your origin? What is the original creator's ToS? Consider seriously how much "claim" you truly have. Is it right to claim you have control over someone else's art? Trying to claim you own something when you aren't sure if you really do is unfair, trading and selling of art is at its best when everyone behaves responsibly and ethically. Examples of unethical activity can include (but is not limited to): selling / trading / giving away without permission, advertising characters with art you do not have permission to give away / trade / sell, claiming back art (or characters) when you don't know who owns it, claiming something back because it "is not used enough".

3: Record!
Keep a record of what you buy, sell, giveaway and trade, who it goes to and if you got payment. Screenshots are awesome and can save hassle. When buying artwork, immediately screenshot your statements to include the transactions. This can save you a lot of hassle. If you make "special arrangements" for art, screenshot that too.

4: What happens next?!
Many artists see their art being sold on, and see their hard work being profited on by those who may not have even paid for the art! So consider where your art is going. You can put in your ToS that people must always come to you to trade/sell/giveaway your art. Don't let yourself fall foul of others.

Yep guys, this is a topic that will likely be ongoing with various situations. A lot of people in our community have had certain hardships from time to time, and have had a bit of a hand here and there. Its time for us all to come together as one to do our bit and give back.

The unfortunate reality of life is that bad things happen to good people. A lot. No matter how generous and giving and caring you are, sometimes stuff just happens and sometimes there's nothing you can do about it.

That's where we come in.

So from time to time things will change on this topic, but the one thing that will stay constant is your involvement. This topic is here to raise funds for fellow wolfhomers in need. We're a community, a family, and we should look after our own.

Feel free to PM me if you have any concerns, comments or questions. Any suggestions, And ESPECIALLY if you want to help out.
