Dumbest things you’ve ever seen on tumblr?

Can someone tell me if you're getting a notification or something when your posts have been flagged? I tried checking my posts, but I didn't find anything with that orange flagged bar. I didn't bother checking the announcement posts and everything tbh because I haven't used Tumblr in months, but I'm curious if they flagged anything from me.

So Tumblr decided to Tumblr itself and get rid of all NSFW blogs by the 17th of this month

https://tumblr.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/231885248-Sensitive-content

Basically 90% of tumblr blogs are gone.  Wow tumblr way to go. Don't address the Nazi's  or TCC that idolize Serial killers on your site  or even the actuall Porn Bot that you were trying to fix nope just get rid of all NSFW blogs because that the fucking problem:stoplz:

 

That awkward moment when tumblr can’t even tumblr right. I’d say they’re  pulling an Elsagate YouTube right now, but at least youtube did something about those channels after 2 years. It’s taken tumblr almost EIGHT.

So I'm guessing that Tumblr is not going to get rid of everything nsfw (art, fanfics, etc) because that just wanted to get rid of the child porn. With that being said, it's obvious that their filter system isn't exactly working but hey at least the didn't touch my side blog (mostly because i got like 4 followers on it)!

Also to put my 2 cents of dumb thing I don't like about tumblr, I don't like the immense amount of people discording about veganism and animal welfare/rights. I follow a couple of blogs (one about anything animal related and another that is just about cows/farming) and the discord is kinda annoying and repetitive. I still follow them because they still have good content but the obsessive vegan and animal rights people need to fuck off sometimes.

If the idiots running tumblr want to get rid of child porn, they should start by purging the MAP/NOMAP/paraphilia-related tags. Banning the NSFW tag isn’t gonna do shit.

About the whole deleting nsfw stuff, pretty sure Tumblr did this as a response to the CP and Apple thing. It's really stupid because they never bothered actually going through and removing things that needed to be removed. The site is a mess they never bothered to fix. Like, they should have at least made a way to filter out porn when searching tags and stuff and restricting minors from viewing it and removing actual cp but they never did.

Pretty glad I never actually went onto Tumblr, it always looked like a mess.

The child pornography is exactly why they’re doing this, and the only reason they’re even doing it at all is because they got caught being negligent and never did anything about it being on the site when they were notified that it was there. Tumblr doesn’t deserve to be on the app store again because of this, and I certainly don’t blame Apple for kicking them off. I wouldn’t wanna be associated with them as a company either.

I’m glad you didn’t go on there either, Tumblr is a fucking cesspool.

Oh boy I've seen some SHIT.

Shoplifting fandom is still shocking to me. I remember somebody had gathered up a list of blogs and a few of them got arrested or something.

MAP community, I remember finding out about that a year or so ago. Still disgusting.

I remember Yandere Bitch Club, the grave robbing witch, Nemu, despair-komeda, joshishollywood, purplekeckleon... I've been on that site for 9 years and counting.

I do kind of miss pre-2011 Tumblr. It was very hipster-y. Everyone was making gifs and photo edits, posting actual creative stuff. Even the memes were less remixes of each other.

Is YBC a kintype thing, or is it associated with YanSim? Because I got blog results for both when I tried to google it. Care to fill me in? 

https://furbyfuzz.tumblr.com/post/173938782243/today-we-are-having-hot-dog

yeah its a long Furby tag on tumblr if anybody wants to see more of these 

 

Why must these furby blogs only post nightmare fuel? :frowny:

It's the kintype thing. This Reddit post describes what happened pretty well. https://reddit.app.link/Gk4HgyKNzS

I think the worst ever examples of this that I have ever seen was the Sonic Passion site (I think one of the members is still in prison?) and JustinRPG. Just.......eugh.

HOLY SHIT. I have no words for this. Tumblr idiocy at it’s finest. Thanks for this archive! The whole fictionkin thing is right up there with the Sonic Passion shit,  but it’s on a much more concerning scale.

i went on tumblr a lot a few years ago, my old account got obliterated and i dont miss it. it was pretty unhealthy for me and im still reeling from the effects years later. i didnt personally experience a lot of stuff on it but i remember some events on it as well as knowing people in highschool who were effected by it (aka i went to school with about 3-4 otherkins).

i remember some drama with zamii0 drawing rose quartz... oh, actually i remember stuff going on with a lot of the drawn cp stuff. some fans got this idea to kinda get past it and still draw their hentai by listing them under 'code names' of a sort? like steven universe r34 was under stephen galaxy. i dont think it caught on but then again, this type of content... yikes...

I wonder if there are other codenames like that for other fandoms? I'm sure there are, however Stephen Galaxy is the only one I've heard of so far. The drawn cp  shit is creepy, especially when they pair it with incest (Rick and Morty fandom) and what scared me the first time I looked at some of the fan art was how much effort they put into it....like, why the fuck even? Another thing that bugs me is how PUBLIC they are with this shit.  The fandom will tear itself apart trying to defend/ward off this bullshit, which makes the environment AWFUL.

The only codename for NSFW art that I know of aside from Stephen Galaxy is UnderTail (may or may not have a space). If the show is geared towards primarily kids, it will usually have a name like that attached to it.
