Can a drawfriend ask for the removal of his works?

This is an archiving site for content made on /co/, for /co/, and that's about it. But you still drew that content. Even if it's fanart, you still drew it, so the artist gets a final say on where their work should be displayed here, or anywhere, really.
What do you want to do?

Well I wanted to contact some of the administrators to ask if I could request my works to be put down. I'm going to start looking for a job and some stuff I did as requests could harm me. You know how's the thing. Also, is there an e-mail where we can discuss in more detail? I can't find it.

There isn't really a single email point of contact anymore, as the person who set up this booru doesn't appear to be active anymore, and none of the current admins have ownership level of access.

While there shouldn't be a problem with removing artwork at the request of an artist, we should probably discuss a procedure for verifying that any requests made are genuine, and not from someone impersonating the artist, or otherwise acting maliciously.

If you search for your personal name and/or email address (or the name you are applying for a job as), does any of it lead to this booru (or otherwise show any of the artwork you produced)? If not, then it's unlikely the artwork here would be associated with you personally.

Otherwise, we can at least change the tags to an alternative pseudonym, to reduce the chances of association. Changing the tags would be the simplest and easiest option, as even if someone requested the change maliciously, the tags can be reverted should the deception be uncovered. Deleted images cannot be restored.

Yeah, I think that just changing the tags removing my name will be enough.
So, how do I prove I'm Ronco?

If you still have a full size layered image file of one of your pictures that's in the booru, particularly if it's larger than the final delivery, then that could count as proof that you're the original artist. I'd imagine that sort of thing would be tricky and time consuming to convincingly reverse engineer from a smaller, flattened image.

Link to a cropped section, at full size, with all layers visible (and maybe alternatives of the same image with eg transparent or off-set layers).

Here's a link to the proofs.

As I said, I would like them removed

Old drawfriend here as well. I unfortunately don't have proof for some of the images drawn since they're so old, and I wouldn't even want all of the images tagged under my name deleted, just the questionable ones.
