You can use the bulk update request for multiple suggestions in one thread. Can't edit a singular suggestion after the fact afaik.

Okay, I attempted this, but when I went to post the bulk update, I got an "unparsable line" error. Anyone know what this means?

You need to follow the text format exactly as laid out under the 'Help' button.
tl;dr:
unimply aaa -> bbb
alias aaa -> bbb
etc.

Ohhhh, now I see my mistake. Thanks again!

...and now they're all telling me "[insert tag] must have more than 20 posts to request an alias," even though all of them already do... >.> Eh. I give up, for now.

The bulk update request #99 is active.

create alias barbra_(mlp) -> spike_(mlp)
create alias big_macareina_gala_(mlp) -> big_macintosh_(mlp)
create alias dusk_shine_(mlp) -> twilight_sparkle_(mlp)
create alias eris_the_draconequus_(mlp) -> discord_(mlp)
create alias gleaming_shield_(mlp) -> shining_armor_(mlp)
create alias queen_umbra_(mlp) -> king_sombra_(mlp)

Reason: Crossgenders, don't require their own tags. Submitting as bulk.

Aliases that cannot be bulked:
alias barb_the_dragon_(mlp) -> spike_(mlp) (This thread)
alias bubble_berry_(mlp) -> pinkie_pie_(mlp)
alias elusive_(mlp) -> rarity_(mlp)
alias prince_artemis_(mlp) -> princess_luna_(mlp)
alias prince_malestia_(mlp) -> princess_celestia_(mlp)
alias rainbow_blitz_(mlp) -> rainbow_dash_(mlp) (forum #22617)
alias solaris_(mlp) -> princess_celestia_(mlp)

EDIT: The bulk update request #99 (forum #292559) has been approved by @Millcore.

When listing tags, make sure you type it as barbra_(mlp), not [[barbra_(mlp)]]. It will add the brackets for you, so adding them might make it think you're asking for a different tag.

I never even touched the bracket keys.

+1, and how can you submit a bulk update request within an active thread? I know about submitting a new bulk update request, but what about submitting a bulk update request within a preexisting thread?

When creating a new BUR, you can add the ID of an existing thread to the "Forum topic" field

You can also add [bur:99] to the opening post if you submit a bulk request after you started a thread, so that it still shows the initial alias and the bulk request--I'm not sure how the Thumbs works if you do that though.

Privileged

I noticed several aliases not in the formal bulk update request didn't get approved.
