@Derpy Whooves
That’s weird — I copied the link as-is from the submission page, so it should behave exactly the same, or so I would’ve assumed…

Anyway, glad to have been of assistance.


@Dogman15
That could work only if I ever attended any cons, I’m afraid. :/

It’s DA that’s the problem. Somehow, how you arrive at the page determines what they show you. Which, I suppose makes sense – they only show you the name change if they had to re-direct you. I think if that’s how they are handling name changes, I will have to make sure I look at the "wrong" URLs more, to make sure I force a redirect so I get the confirmation.

That’s just it. The link I used was the artist credit link from this, which is for the old name and therefore redirects and — for me, at least — shows the old name…

Eugh. DA’s broken in some minor way, must be a day ending in Y again.

@MellowinsomeYellow – That tag was deprecated 5 years ago. Why are you trying to re-assert it?

You keep asking me to alias artists together, without providing any evidence that they are the same person, or asking me to alias tags into OLDER tags that we’ve already moved away from.

Please, next time you ask for an alias, provide some evidence to back up your request.

Thank you for adding the evidence that you see. We don’t trust our own tagging as much as we look for evidence from things the artist themselves has done, so for artist:velirenartist:velirenrey I checked their DeviantArt Gallery.

Gosh they have nice art.

artist:velirenartist:velirenrey – Done.

artist:alx119artist:alskylark – Ok – this image >>246891 has this source which redirects to artist:alskylark. Agreed.

Done.

I do – I don’t know if we really have a place for that, but I have been slowly working through the Tumblr Diaspora thread, and if people want to add those here as well that makes a lot of sense to me, since this thread is mostly about artists moving.

And, I’ve been trying to update verified artist links as I go along. I think that separating out verified link changes because someone has a new site, from people changing their names, really doesn’t make any sense, so doing it all here makes good sense to me.

Because, basically, I’m using the same tools and working in the same data either way.

Done.

@Brokedownandmadeone – Done.

@rannius
artist:puzzleponyartist:hioshiru – I asked the artist. Often artists like their SFW commissions to be separate from their "everything else."
artist:kiliankuroartist:dolorosacake – Agreed, done.

@MellowinsomeYellow – Their @ is Erufi_UT, but their name is エルフィ, so I went with artist:erufi_utartist:erufi. I also added their Twitter URL to their long description – thank you for researching that.

@MellowinsomeYellow – Done, thank you. I also updated their verified links.

@Background Pony #E06C
artist:zwagyzonkartist:ende26 – Wow, what a fascinating situation. I like your solution. I did what you recommended, and added pointers between the various tags, and updated the detailed descriptions.
artist:mel-the-shadow-loverartist:melle-d – Done.

@Brokedownandmadeone – Done.

Honestly, doing this fills me with such a quiet sense of happiness. We’re really starting to flesh out some of these artist tags and verified links, and I really REALLY appreciate your help researching all of these.

That goes for everyone who is contributing to this thread.

Instead of a bunch of "We’re not who this is" artist tags, or a world of "We’re not sure where this artist went" lost links from the diaspora, we’re actually creating a web of data that just … seriously … this is so much fun for me.

Thank you to EVERYONE in this thread who helps so much to make this happen, but especially to all of you really dedicated uploaders and artist hunters who are pulling all of this together.

You all rock!

It’s really interesting to see how different artists handle this. There’s some artists who have multiple artist names and galleries, all kept carefully separate and secret. And some do very well; others I think would do better if all of their audience was combined.

At the same time, some artists who combine their works into one gallery or tag end up with people outraged by "that thing they drew". I guess for me the best example is artist:kanashiipanda, who suffered some pushback when they suddenly made an amazing animation with an OC that a lot of people have strong feelings about. Some artists would have hidden that work under a nom de plume (perhaps unsuccessfully, because of how recognizable their art style is), but they owned it, and I think that was the right call.

But, I am getting very far afield from the purpose of this thread, so … back to helping to implement the new Article 13 stuff :)
