FYI there's topic #7713
Also it's small enough that you can just move it manually.

I usually would but, almost every time someone gives me slack for not doing it automatically (when it's 20+ images)...

    Not sure where "pyesan" came from.

    Pyesan is a name for another artist entirely: https://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=17701306:

    All of their works uploaded here have been deleted. Their stuff was uploaded before Revolverwing's stuff was getting uploaded here: https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts?utf8=%E2%9C%93&tags=pyesan+status%3Adeleted&ms=1

    It was mistakenly associated to revolverwing later. My guess is that someone must have accidentally uploaded a revolverwing image under that name, changed the wiki despite it being for a different artist, and it just stuck.

    Pyesan and Revolverwing are two different people. They shouldn't be aliases.

    And here we have an excellent case of an unnecessary and complicated alias (especially for one that may follow both).

    I'd assume that someone made the mistake of tagging revolverwing's content as pyesan's once (or a few times), and it picked up and suddenly that was the accepted name. Go figure.
