Create an option for users to add creator(s) and characters/users to submission information, with that directly linking to their user profiles.

Imagine this as a system with what you can set in the names of artists directly linking to profiles and characters that are visible on the submission stating both their name and their profile link that everyone can access.

This would be handy because we don't have to type out copyright information onto the bottom of the image, plus stating who's character they are. (Some users do this and this would be actually a very good thing for others too who don't do it.)

It could easily be solved by adding BBcode or something to a description that is hidden and then the system automatically pulls out the data and displays it.

The code could look like this <subcreator:@username;characters:1@username,2@username,3@username>


They could also implement it as an alternative form of the tagging system, give it it's own fields for creator credits and character credits.


I suggested something similar not too long ago - https://support.furrynetwork.com/topics/253-creator-client-and-featuring-fields-in-submissions/

Given the collaborative and participatory nature of furry art it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense to have only one usericon below a submission, especially given how often creators and clients will each submit the same drawing.

This is a better technical workaround if it is too complicated for the devs to create by adding new information rows into the database.
