As much as it sucks sometimes for us artists, he is within his right to re-request.
We have to respect the rules and terms of this just as much as requesters do.
It's not like he's going around double PM'img people or being super rude and offensive....
and it's not like he didn't even use the sig that was made for him previously.
He simply just wanted it updated to show his new race/gear.
Edit: And honestly, I would change the cooldown rule. If someone asked to change a signature I made them a week later, I would be majorly insulted. 1 month would be better, imo. I race changed to goblin well over a year ago, and I'm still rocking a dwarf sig.
this right here.... in case you want it.
OT: if you really want Shy or another artist to do your request just PM me and I will unclaim it
Someone goes to a Woodworking website and starts browsing their forums. They see that there's a thread to request free pieces to be made by talented woodworkers. Wow, cool! So they request a coffee table with a light finish for their living room. Lo and behold, a woodworker claims the request and makes a beautiful piece. Later, this person changes their decor and suddenly they need a dark finish. So they make a request of the woodworker to stain it for them to a darker color, to which he obliges. Then, not 12 days later, this person suddenly shows up on the forums requesting a new coffee table to be made because they've changed their decor yet again, this time to a super-modern theme. The old one is beautiful, and they just love it, but it clearly will not fit in. I mean, they loved using that table for those 12 days! It wasn't like it went unused. It was seen and enjoyed by all for those 12 days. But now they just need another table, because the decor needs it.
Now, does that sound ok to you? It shouldn't. And it's basically the exact same thing as what you're doing now. Graphics designers get payed a lot of money for a reason. The fact that what we create here isn't physically tangible doesn't mean that it should hold any less value in your mind than something that is.
And i4ni, while I understand and respect your position in supporting him, I'm disappointed that you're willing to go along with behavior like this.
I'd like to clarify that I'm not supporting frequent reposts because of race or faction changes, but I'm sick and tired of the occasional hack and slash game going on between requesters and artists. I avoid this thread sometimes because it tends to be very hostile and I don't want to be a part of that, ever.

If you wanna talk it out via PM you're welcome to do so I just thought people should understand why I see more of an issue with YOUR behavior.
I am not a professional graphics designer.
I simply enjoy making things.
If in my quest to better myself through practice I can help someone out then it's a bonus.
I have a problem when people don't follow the rules of the thread... which was not the case here with Mersynd.
IMO, The rules of the thread are meant to give both requesters and artists an idea of how things work around here.
If you don't like the fact signatures only have a 7 day CD then perhaps you should bring it up with a Mod and not scold people openly, especially since they are within their right to re-request per the rules of this thread.
Yes, sometimes it sucks when you spend hours of your time making something and then someone re-requests a week later.
The brilliant thing is you don't have to pick up their new request or any request they post thereafter...
but since they are techicnally respecting the rules you should do the same.
Hi. I have been forced to change my main and I am starting to like it a lot. And I woud love to show that in a new signature.
