I aliased everything to "artist:1an1" because that’s their profile name here. Their use of other names on other sites is all over the place, using one as their URL and another as their ’Name’ … so I went with the historical name here. Or, at least, the one out of "artist:an-ponsex, artist:kiyu-123, artist:lambibelle, artist:ponsex, artist:ponsex13, artist:the1an1" that was the most "what we know them as".

So maybe i’m missing something here, but I stumbled upon this pic, and judging from the comments, one of the php users doesn’t seem to make a secret of their usual artist alias.

They were only concerned about searches that would find them based on their artist tag and a couple other criteria.

We create a bespoke PHP for any artist asking for one, from simply hiding their tag on a handful of images, to complete wipes of all information including editing their images to remove their signatures — each artist has their own specific situation and needs.

lol there’s only one image with the first artist tag and they probably aren’t going to release anything else any time soon :P

Might as well just change the tag and move along xD

What are you doing?

I got to update that artist’s tags with their most recent off site links. If you think that’s "XD" then please unsubscribe from this thread and stop commenting on other people’s requests.

@rannius
Do not listen to them. They do not represent this site and do not seem to understand the purpose of this thread. I, and I’m pretty sure the majority of the community here, appreciate your help getting these tags all sorted out and documented.

Thanks, and I was going to do that anyway.
But since some people apparently don’t know it, the point of such requests is not (only) to eliminate double tags but to help people coming from the original source who only have the first username to search for.

Yeah, we’re here for the long run, and fixing this five years from now will be even more fraught. So catching them and fixing them now is super good.

I took a break from the site to figure out how I wanted to help the community and the site into the next generation of ponies, and getting all the G4 artists sorted out and documented was number one on my list of "Why I want to volunteer here".

@MidnightAmber – Hi MidnightAmber :) I’ve updated your tags, and have added your Tumblr link, too, to your verified links.

If there is anything else I can help with, please do not hesitate to send me a PM :)
