The commissions are canceled because my Internet was cut. Sorry about that

Is your internet really cut, is that the real reason you cancelled your commissions? It seems like you are making comments and posting art just fine. Is it just not a large number of takers? You know, cutting them off just because of low takers isn't really fair, as anyone who comes late and has points won't be able to take them, actively contributing to the lack of takers. You think its bad, so your solution is to make it worse.
Also if you don't think you have enough takers, why not allow for more than one commission per person? I'd gladly pay for another commission if you were still taking them.

First of all my internet is working now and secondly I canceled the commissions because I have seen that many people do not have enough points, others prefer to make free requests than to pay for them or are they too selfish for this. I do not want to open them again after everything that's happened just because everyone refuses to have points

Well, I;m glad you net is back up and working then, I guess it was temporary and not the real reason you decided to stop commissions.
You really got to be more patient, and give it more time with things. Because you only get 3 or 4 commissions within a 2 day period, suddenly that's not enough and you've decided never to do it again? Those are absolutely insane standards that no one can meet, once again you are setting yourself up for failure by setting inhumanly impossible standards and then getting upset when they inevitably can't be met. 

I understand that you may not want to do anymore commissions right now, but perhaps not give up on it in the future. Perhaps rather than wait for a large batch all at once, which is unreasonable, just open commissions wherever you have some spare time. Take them as they come and work on them when you can. That's how most artists here on Deviantart do commissions. They offer commissions either for large windows when they have the time, or they are almost always open. And they don't take large batches of 20 or more placed in a small span of time, they take like 2-5 at a time over a month, depending on the artist, and work on them when you can. That's how other artists handle them. I'm sure over time, you'll get a steady stream of points, and it is not overwhelming like when people swarm you with overwhelming demand when free commissions are open. 

I do hope you decided to do commissions again, because you know I'll always be waiting with some points and some ideas if you ever open them again. I have an idea or two right now if you're willing to hear it.

Okay, that's good for now. As long as you get a few, you should consider it a success. Don't expect as many takers as when you give out requests. Nothing sells in the same numbers as when something is free.

Were you able to get a couple of our warnings about that website on your previous post?
Just hope you are being careful with that.

As for commissions, unfortunately that's an annoying tendency with humans: the longer something is given to them for free, the less willing they are to pay for it, regardless of what's fair.

I was going to cancel even though I saw that some people do not have enough points and others are too selfish to give me points.
