Artist's Pixiv Account on Tag Page

Post by ButterflyIllusioned » Sun Jun 13, 2010 3:35 pm

I would like to see a link to the Artist's Pixiv/Deviantart/Sheezyart/ect account on the "Tag" page (ie: The page you are sent to when you click on their name on an image). It would make it a lot easier then having to search through the Wiki.

For example, finding the Pixiv account via the Wiki for "Kanaoto Neiro", you have several steps before you reach the pixiv account:
http://e-shuushuu.net/tags/15122
Then
http://e-shuushuu.net/wiki/index.php/Sp ... eiro&go=Go
Then
http://e-shuushuu.net/wiki/index.php/Ka ... 3%E8%89%B2
Then Finally
http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=360920

And this is one of the easier artists. Some don't have wiki pages but are instead just listed in a mass list of Pixiv artists. It's a little messy. n_n;

Le ouch ^^; We only have a handful of people who are dedicated to the wiki...

Since I'm not that much of a contributor, I'm not going to say much on the case, but I do understand what you're suggesting. Crossed my mind in the past, but I, personally, didn't mind following the steps you listed.

A lot of artists now do have their Pixiv account in the tag page. That's how I've been adding all of my Pixiv only artists lately. And we've started a new system to streamline Wiki navigation for artists with actual websites, so that should get better soon-ish.
I just have to fix everything first.

No, I meant the fact that you have to click on one link to click on another to click on another to finally get to the link that you want. Not that the Wiki is messy. Once you GET to the wiki page, it's nice. It's the getting there that's messy.

Sorry, I should have explained more.. >_<;;

@Yatchen:
Ah! Good to know. It's just not caught up to the artists I upload the most, I guess. xD

This kind of thing is like hotlinking ... I do not approve of this idea. Yes, we're still hotlinking in the Wiki and in the artists Shuu tag... but that's different from direct hotlinking >_>

What? This isn't hotlinking. It's the same URL we use on the wiki.
It's an image's page, not a link to the image.

It'd be hotlinking if we were linking directly to the artist's images, the .jpg or .png, etc files. Linking to the artist's profiles is different. It's basically like linking to a "site" the artists have set up for themselves. It's a gallery profile. Why do you say it's hotlinking?

You just don't seem to understand the definition of hotlinking.

I don't know. o.o
I'm not really sure if you and I are thinking of the same thing...
hotlinking is when you link to the image specifically, like danbooru does.
But this is just posting the profile link...just..."linking" in general?

Old topic is old, but I think Tensa was referring to the Japanese concept of where you are supposed to ask someone before you link to their page. Unless it is specified as "link free" which most artist sites I see are.
