The character Athena from the recent Shawn Keller videos (1
) has been quite popular lately. For some reason, someone started tagging images featuring this character with “athena lanty zupondonia”, which is not a name mentioned anywhere in the videos, it’s just Athena (cf. video 2 above). Since I wasn’t able to find any reason to add the “lanty zupondonia” part to her name, I started removing that tag and adding just oc:athena. However, at one point staff member Crow starting reverting those changes to the longer name, so I stopped to not step on the staff’s toes. Since I can’t send a message without account and haven’t received a staff response to my comments asking for reasons for the longer name (see >>2617125
), I’m now posting here.
Since there is no basis for the additional names in the originating work, I’d like to ask for these changes to be reverted and the short name instated. If the reason is to avoid confusion with other OCs called Athena, I think another option should be found that doesn’t simply make up parts of the name not used by the character’s creator, like oc:athena (pondonia) or such.
