Krotir signs some of their art as “Krotir56” but goes by the name “Krotir” here and on other sites. artist:krotir56 looks like their dominant artist tag but artist:krotir would be convenient to alias into it.
It would also be nice if a staffer could work with them to get their account here verified as an artist profile. Then they could pick their own preferred artist tag.

Whoever is currently under the tag artist:papaya doesn’t look like the same person as artist:pumpkabooo/artist:burgerpaws
Incidentally, it doesn’t look like artist:papaya ever actually had “papaya” as an account URL (and most of the accounts are deleted) although they did sign “papaya” on the images.
artist:pumpkabooo/artist:burgerpaws has “hi! i’m papaya” written in their pinned Tweet but “hello! my name’s sofi” in their carrd, and I only see them writing “burgerpaws/pumpkabooo” on images, not “papaya”

Done.

They are verified - but as Krotir56. They just have more than one profile.

I recommend reversing that alias like @Background Pony #F40D suggested. Even looking at an archive of the tumblr page nothing matches up. Posts from 2015 on the tumblr has this stuff (NSFW):
https://web.archive.org/web/20151118080012/https://papayaaaaaaaaa.tumblr.com/
https://web.archive.org/web/20150626035815/https://papayaaaaaaaaa.tumblr.com/
https://web.archive.org/web/20150324190914/https://papayaaaaaaaaa.tumblr.com/

While on dA the posts look like this https://www.deviantart.com/pumpkabooo/gallery/all?page=27
https://www.deviantart.com/pumpkabooo/art/yikes-569327736

Absolutely nothing properly links them together and there’s also no signatures on the images like papaya’s has. (pumpkaboo’s is a flat font on images) And papaya is just a common fruit. Unless there’s some kind of unique name, I would have personally brushed it off outright on its face.
In the future, unless there’s a proper link, I’d advise pressing for more information on a loose ask if there isn’t some kind of other link between the (two e.g. matching art posted on the accounts).
EDIT: I randomly clicked one of the later archive points and that came up with other sites: NSFW https://web.archive.org/web/20161109124226/http://papayaaaaaaaaa.tumblr.com/

and checking e6 https://e621.net/artists/20009 there’s even more links

Well, shit. I was actually really excited thinking that artist:papaya was making art again :P But, yeah - this is a mess.
In the future, unless there’s a proper link …
The reason the alias appeared valid was that their Burgerpaws Carrd links to the Twitter account which is named ‘Papaya, which links back to the same Carrd. Thus completing the sacred circle of life I guess. But, point taken. I’ve dug through the source_urls and other info on the images and it ended up being even weirder. But, I think I’ve got it sorted out now. We’re back to:
artist:pumpkabooo -> artist:burgerpaws
artist:payachan, artist:xopapaya, artist:papayaaaaaaaaa, artist:bigredpapaya, artist:payapapayachan -> artist:papaya
Please swing through them if you have time, and let me know if you see anything broken or wrong.

Yeah. It’s a shame. Unless there’s some art from the twitter that didn’t get posted. I wouldn’t know though.
The reason the alias appeared valid was that their Burgerpaws Carrd links to the Twitter account which is named ‘Papaya’
Only a display name on an account wouldn’t have been enough for my taste since the rest were seemingly unrelated. In this case it looked like it was just “flavor/flair”. The only thing that was linked was the named accounts and neither had papaya on them. Not even sure where the wixsite or email is that got mentioned, and even then it was specifically “papayapas”. Which is oddly close to papayapus but is also yet another artist
All that said, looks good.
