That is the artist’s call
Obviously.
I’m just saying, artists who do that should damn well expect people to put two and two together and not arrive at three or five… But reason is evil, I guess.

The site has been around long enough that a lot of artists who started out in high school or college are now working on their professional portfolios and interviewing, and if they need some set of their art that they created to "simply disappear", or to at least not be "immediately obvious" we do everything we can to help them. Sometimes people need a complete wipe of their personally identifying information. Sometimes they just need it kept separate even though it still links to them. It’s their call. Every situation is unique.

And artists being allowed to keep content separate or to use alternate names so as not to be identified is baked into our rules, and something we work hard to protect.

Please remember these kinds of situations often are the result of a compromise that allows us to continue host their art. If we are not willing to uphold that compromise, then artists always have the option of simply taking their art down. So we don’t always have a lot of options as to what we can and can’t do.

And if an artist is in this arrangement, then that takes precedence over "accurate tagging" or any desire to make sure that everyone’s art is under one and only one tag.

And they should also be able to trust that we will do what they ask.

Sure – you worked it out. I could work it out, too. But the HR department at Walmart won’t. And the HR department in most companies won’t either.

Sometimes just having a separate tag is enough. It’s the artist’s call.

This thread is a "working thread" for artist alias requests. If you want to talk about if we should or shouldn’t be aliasing artists the way we are, please make a new thread in the Site & Policy forum.

@Valghern – Done.

@wumbl3 – Done.

@icey wicey 1517 – Done.

@icey wicey 1517 – Done.

@Brokedownandmadeone – Thank you for the reminder.
• What a mess.
• It’s been months since they logged on, so I’m not going to try contacting them now.
• Sweetie Belle is their newest name, but they’re still calling themselves "Ponsex" everywhere but here.
• I aliased everything to "artist:1an1" because that’s their profile name here.
• I added all of their links to their profile.

@Hevity – Done. If there’s anything else we can help with, please do not hesitate to PM me :)

@Background Pony #DE8F – Done.

@rannius – Done.

@Brokedownandmadeone & @Brokedownandmadeone – Done. Thank you for helping with those. Sometimes those "more than one artist" posts are difficult to parse and track.

Caught up to here.

artist:rottenroadkillartist:rottenscoundrel

Announcement
Well…combining accounts, really. So, this isn’t just another username change. I WILL NO LONGER BE UPLOADING TO THIS ACCOUNT!!!
Due to losing interest in the MLP fandom I am going to just combine all my art over at my "anthro" art account:
RottenRoadkill
So watch me there if you want to see more work! I will still be taking commissions there and I will still draw MLP themed things for commission!
Though I’m guessing you’d want to merge it to the currently active account instead. This guy continues to go through a lot of names.
