I can no longer trust the Squiby owners with my art..
I'm deleting it all..

I am so sorry.. 

more info: my thread

Chocolatefudge set up normal accounts on other art websites,
set up an automated bot system that automatically took our art on squiby
and uploaded it to her own accounts on Flickr, Tumblr, facebook and Deviantart. 
She did not ask the artists permission or even at all tell them that this was happening.. 

She actually did make a short announcement about the DA group, but also said that we could ask to have it removed.
I asked to have my art removed and I thought it was removed, but I later found out she had just hid it and it was all still there... 

She thought it was okay to promote for the site.. 
There are so many ways she could have promoted for the site, and she choose the worst way possible.. 
The art she took didn't even have a decent amount of view, making them useless as advertisement for the site.

She has many times before used art on the site that looked stolen or was clearly stolen.
I warned her back in february that I did not want to be on an art site that stole art.
When I now found out she had also been stealing my art, and others, ..I was just devastated.. 
I had trusted her with my art on squiby for so long, and she had taken that trust and crushed it.. 
I can't stand to look at the site anymore.. it just hurts too much.. 

I had been an active member and artist on squiby for 5 years, 
I never thought it would end like this :,(

I have joined and will share my adoptables on,       


Thank you all so much for the support. 
It will take some time to heal.
I will be keep on sharing my adoptables on maxicanvas,
and that helps.

Chcolatefudge has finally made an announcement, saying sorry, and have deactivated all accounts with stolen art.
it's been over a month of waiting.. this month has been very difficult.. 
whenever I think I'm getting better, it somehow just all come back and it hurts even more again..
I am staying away from squiby, to help me heal and move on, I'm there only rarely to check my messages..

Hi elen, I wanted to ask, I don't know if some people already ask, but, will you make new adoptables for christmas? :)
elen89 Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student Traditional Artist
Since what happened on Squiby, I just haven't really been in the mood to draw any adoptables yet :/ 
but I would like to make a few new Christmas pets.. So maybe.
