      We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.

Dumbest things you’ve ever seen on tumblr?

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.

Thank you both for mentioning this, more people need to be in the know on this, especially parents of kids who use tumblr. Because where there is cp, there are dangerous people.

https://kiwifarms.net/threads/tumblr-will-ban-all-adult-content-on-december-17th.50518/page-20#post-4092169

If you guys don't wanna click on the link its a list of alternative websites to use

  • myspace.com - yes, it still exists, i’m just as surprised as you
  • nibblebit.com - similar to tumblr with reblogging / liking / customization of blogs
  • swarmr.com - looks like a clone of tumblr, though i haven’t tested
  • twitter.com - allows posting both text and photos in sets, allows retweets
geared towards writers and bloggersgeared towards artists and photographers
  • deviantart.com - huge community, allows posting art + sorting into folders
  • flickr.com - great community for photographers, can join groups
  • furaffinity.net - similar to DA but for furries, easy to display commish info

paid platforms
  • patreon.com - subscription-based access to many diff types of content
  • pillowfort.io - still in beta, but should function almost identically to tumblr
  • typepad.com - similar to wordpress but with reblogging and a dash
defunct platforms
(so people will stop telling me i forgot them)

 

  • jux.com - shut down in 2014 due to lack of funds
  • shoandtell.me - now redirects to someone’s personal blog
  • soup.io - more or less closed down this year due to GDPR issues

ways to save your current tumblr posts
  • use the wayback machine! you do have to archive each page of your blog individually but once you do all the content, including media, will be saved exactly as it was at the moment you archived it.
  • wordpress allows you to directly import whole tumblr blogs, and if i recall correctly it’s something both dreamwidth and pillowfort have said they are working on.
  • if you have some knowledge of computers you can try this github solution which uses a python script to download your whole blog to your computer. even if you don’t know anything about programming or the command line they give a very good beginners tutorial on how to use it so you should still give it a shot!

some notes
please note that every site on this list will have pros and cons, and i haven’t listed them here since this post would be a mile long otherwise. please do your research before moving completely over to another site in case they have policies you disagree with.

also, because I see a lot of misinformed people ranting about this: deviantart does not own the art you post. some years ago hot topic stole a ton of art from DA and sold it on merchandise and people assumed that DA gave them permission to do it despite there being literally zero evidence for that claim. DA explictly states in their TOS that you retain copyright and sole license of the art you post.

TL;DR- They are hiding NSFW blogs not deleting them and clarified what kind of  "Female Presenting Nipple " is allowed on their site

 

So did they backpedal on what they were originally gonna do like they always do, or is this what they meant to do all along? Because something tells me it’s the former. 🙄

Tumblr mods have no backbone whatsoever.

Edited by Fat disgusting weeb
At least many artsy nsfw blogs won’t be losing their content. This still won’t fix the cp issues unless they actually bother to delete specific tags, though I’m sure the mods are too spineless to take care of business.

Probably both more so this is what they ment to do all along but some how managed to fuck it up in the most Tumblr way possible and of course people are giving them shit for it because they should have said all this shit from the start.

Yeah its not gonna fix the Cp problem but alot of people left because they made it seem like they were gonna nuke NSFW blog when all they were gonna do was hide them.

Calling a romantic relationship between 18-year-old and 16-year-old characters "pedophilia".

Posts about how people shouldn't trust doctors and that some random tumblr blogs have more insight into medical issues, claiming that Ariana Grande is doing blackface, and believing that kinks are responsible for sexual assault.

I'm convinced that Tumblr is gonna go under eventually anyways since they can't find a way to really make successful ads on the site. I think I read an article once that said something like "Tumblr: Yahoo's most regrettable investment."

Why someone would think a fucking blog on the fucking internet knows more than a professional who went to school for years to be what they are is anyone’s guess. They just seem like they don’t like being told that they’re wrong. I don’t blame Yahoo for regretting this investment, i would too. 

Even the BBC is calling tumblr new rules "lazy"

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-46597403

 

The BBC could make a documentary series on tumblr’s shit if they wanted to. I’d watch. They have TONS of material to work with.

Ughhh yes, this. I hate self-diagnosis, but not trusting ALL doctors is worse.

What’s even worse than that are the dogshit arguments they have to excuse/justify self-diagnosis. I have seen everything from “I can’t afford to see a professional” to “I’ve been misdiagnosed too many times”. If you can’t afford a professional, you can get one through your health insurance. Medicaid is paid through the government, and some therapists and psychiatrists take it. You’ll have to call your insurance company and get an authorization for one, but it’s possible. Though I don’t doubt some of these idiots are abusing the system already as it is. And “misdiagnosis” is just what they say about being diagnosed as something they can’t exploit, or just not being diagnosed as the thing they wanna hear or think they have/should have. The best part is when they tell you to “be proud of your condition” when they diagnosed themselves and don’t realize how it affects people who actually have it (this happened to a friend of mine who was in one of those online mental health “support groups” and made friends with people who ran blogs like this. Needless to say, I’m glad they got out of there when they did, because holy fucking shit) 

Tumblr is full of scary idiots and deserves to be treated as such.
