For post #2815142, post #2815136 and post #2815127.
The artist's nickname is 恵人, which gives some weird translations.
Mostly boiling down to "Megumi" "hito".

Well, the one of the name translations for those kanji on WWWJDIC is Keito, and the artist username is keitomokomoko, so it's most likely Keito.

Since Keito is already taken, you could go with keito_(keitomokomoko)...

    keitomokomoko seems good enough, thank you.

    So trying to figure out the artist tag for this is giving me a migraine. The artist is TARO, and their Twitter is listed as taroumaru. My problem is that:
    1)"taro" is taken as an artist tag, and lowercase-ization screws up my edit, and
    2) "taroumaru" is taken as a character tag.

    How do I tag the artist for this?

    Well, their Pixiv username is jamyca_taro, so some potential names include...

    • jamyca_taro
    • taro_(jamyca_taro)
    • taroumarujp
    • taro_(taroumarujp)
    • taro_(pixiv3071489)

    So I was thinking it's time to fix the real name of this artist (artist #97609)
    But there are two names:
    "Shiratani Conaca" and "capriccia".

    Is one of them a circle name?

    The former is his name, and the latter is the name of his website/circle.

    Excerpt from http://capriccia.chottu.net/about.html

    こちらは、白谷こなかのホームページ「capriccia」です。

    Translation: This here is the homepage "capriccia" of Shiratani Conaca.

    Thanks. If I remember, I should request an implication for the change, is that right?

    Well, I would personally just rename it and move all of the posts over, especially since there aren't a lot of posts. There is also the extremely slow nature of alias approving nowadays... :/

    This is probably a dumb question but should the numbers in artist #155741 be in parentheses or should I just let it as is?

    You can leave it as is, although if you do want to use parentheses, it should encompass the entire qualifier... in this case the Pixiv username... so shiro_(shiro_1213).

    I see. I'll just leave it as is. Thank you!

    Did I write the artist tag properly?

    和菓子 translates to Wakako... the qualifier is alright though. You'll want to create an artist entry, just so that future uploads get collated under that artist.
