@Epic Hoagie – All done :)

Everyone else: I am doing anything I get from the actual artist themselves first and out of sequence, but I’ll keep working on getting caught up will all the other requests this weekend.

Yeah, anything that gets uploaded that uses your old name automagically will get tagged with your new name instead.

It’s a pretty miraculous system, when it works as expected. But because computers are doing whatever we tell them, if we make mistake in what we tell them to do, it can get weird. Like, you had two verified links that were identical, one on each tag, and when I aliased them … whoops. Can’t have to identical things in the same place.

That’s purely background and nothing anyone has to worry about, but it’s one of the "Whoops" things that can happen that sometimes means it takes a while to do something that on the surface looks pretty straightforward and easy.

I guess what I’m trying to say is this is a really cool system and it works great, but it’s also a pile of rapidly spinning gears that don’t look to see if anything’s in their way and there’s no safety cages around the spinning shafts.

imagine if computers always did exactly what you wanted them to do
it would be boring

The whole aliases system is great though, really helps with researching ancient art too.

Can we please bring back the "butt" alias? It should still be there for the "plot" alias. And yet, it’s a completely different tag now.

Cool Crow - "Caw!" An awesome tagger
Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

Always Thirsty
artist:tehsean, artist:naoki, artist:astupidjerkartist:snao

Pointing to the latter because it’s their signature on images + accounts which also have that name.
FA journal (under the tehsean name) listing all their other sites that they’ve moved to
weasyl journal mentioning their FA account that I couldn’t initially find, but was under the tags to make the connection.

weasyl (which also somehow has the page title of Snao)
