ALL DONE and ALL CAUGHT UP!



Sorry for taking so long — if I had realized how much I would be knocked out by my spouse's surgery and recovery I would have asked someone else on staff to take over all of these. But thank you all for your patience and your help and all the great research all of you do into these tag changes :)

No, wait. The link and header never changed. It's the page title that I'm referring to.

And it's like I was trying to say, their art is signed with "snao" (earliest signed pic on this site was 2014 [NSFW ID:795485]), and their active patreon and NG with the same name. The only other active account is twitter with an unrelated (but definitively linked) name.
Couple of recent images from February with the snao signature [NSFW] here and [NSFW] here, and this [NSFW] tw / NG from Jun 21st. Signature is on the inside of the bottom thigh strap, left leg.

Sorry for the late reply. Felt real sluggish while trying to gather thoughts on how to word this + getting the links and info.

EDIT: Reason I kept advocating for the name change was because it's their most recent active name, and "tehsean" doesn't really link to anything other than the account name on FA, which AFAIK, they never signed their art with.

EDIT EDIT: No need to apologize. Things happen, and there's not much you can do about it. Only thing anyone can really do is hope for the best, and brave the storm. Just don't over-work yourself.

I believe we grab the name from the URL, not the title.

Maybe I'm wrong about that … ugh. Now I'm getting "You don't have an account here" warnings from that site so I won't be exploring THAT path any further :P

Ok. Here's what I think. I think you're the main uploader so you're the one who has to wrangle this particular artist the most, so I pointed everything to … no, that didn't work. I'm going to … the … uhm … oh my Celestia what the wot. Now I can't even undo the original aliases because … uhm … I don't understand why this isn't working … OH MY GOSH WHAT IS GOING ON!??!!



Fixed.

What a mess that was. I'm sure some of the development team will be knocking on my door any minute now, but it's all ok and fixed and normal now.

I think I said that in a normal voice, so I might get away with it. Just don't peel back the wall paper …

I've pointed all the tags to the one that you asked for because basically you're the main person who uses this tag on this site, so having it the way you want it makes sense.

And because any other way of aliasing it just ended up pointing at other artists or breaking things :P

Please click on this and let me know if that's right. Or if it's not.

/brb getting beer.

Honestly, I'm glad that we found it. It was goofed up the kind of way that things were pointing at things, and if you'd uploaded the right image from the wrong site who knows what would have happened.

Before the current dev team started the effort to sanitize and rationalize the schema and the database, everything had enough "slop" in it that you could get away with things "kind of sort of pointing over there WHOOPS not".

But now if the thing that you're pointing at doesn't exist, the site rightfully says; "Nope nope nope nope".

So, these kinds of things are getting fixed, and this is just another one of those. This last batch of aliasing I ran into maybe a half dozen things like this. But this one was just super duper weird.

Like, it was wearing a cape and a mask levels of super weird.

So — thanks for your patience, and for helping me sort it out :) I'm glad that we got it to a point where it's sane.

PS: Aliasing is one of those things that the site allows some of us volunteers to do, and it is literally terrifying how much power that gives us. I'm not even talking about malicious acts — if I really goofed up one of these aliasings entirely unintentionally and by accident, we might literally have to go to a backup to recover. There's some idiot checking, like I can't alias something to itself (Thank Celestia!) but when I was first learning how to do this, I sent things to the moon so badly that it took me almost 8 hours to fix by hand.

It's a super powerful tool, but it does exactly what you tell it to do, and if you tell it to get rid of a tag, that tag is gone. And recovering from that is … you know, "Go to moon get rock" time.

It's worth noting that their current DA and Twitter(as well as pre-nuked Tumblr) name is 'sb99stuff' which is currently aliased into the latter tag. IMO, I'd switch the tags around so 'sb99stuff' becomes the main tag name as is on all of their current sites.

@Dragonpone — Done.

Yeah, agreed, except now their tag matches their profile, so I went with their main tag.

Thank you. And though I'd still think their other sites' names should take priority over the profile, does profile=tag name mean Nips's tag should be changed(especially since they tend to use 'Nips' or 'McSweezy' on their other sites)?
