tumblr's userbase watching staff run this hellsite into the ground by adding a subscription feature:

Also, how the fuck they're going to make it work with people from outside the USA? How they're going to convert that money? How they're going to make sure the price is worth it for people outside USA?
Because, hey, right now, ONE American dollar is FIVE reais (Brazil's currency). FIVE. Which means that a post that costs R$ 10 is gonna be R$51,96
I'm sorry, but I'm not giving any of you that amount of money, are you fucking insane?

You know how netflix/streaming apps black out the screen when you take a screenshot? Imagine that’s what tumblr plus does and all pirated tumblr posts from here on out are grainy pictures of someone’s phone screen like a goddamn ARG

all jokes aside, it makes me very sad how literally the entire internet, especially social media, has just become more and more unapologetic in trying to wring as much money out of you as possible. can’t go on youtube without being bombarded by youtube red ads promising that if you just give them money, they’ll block the pesky ads who are also begging for your money. can’t stream a movie without searching for it on each of the dozens and dozens of streaming platforms. all demanding individual subscriptions for their tiny share of the world’s movies that used to just all be on netflix. every news site counting down your free three articles, all the while begging you to turn your adblock off. click off instagram’s stupid shopping tab, and the first post on your timeline is with #ad. and of course, now, tumblr’s adding post plus. i hate it!! hate getting advertised at everywhere i go. hate that social media’s not even supposed to be social anymore, just another thing to monetize. i’m so sick of it!!! can’t escape it ever!!! give us 9.99 per month for exclusive fucking content!! fuck!!

Hey, any one having this issue where if they go to Tumblr browser and type in ‘Post + subscription,’ and go to recent it immediately changes it ‘Post subscription’?
i KNOW tumblr is on the downhill and isnt financially viable. everyone does, we lost Verizon a billion dollars. this is not a profitable place.
but its got the best structure of any existing platform. no public follower count, easy repost feature, SEVERAL post formats, html editing, easily have multiple pages, customizable blog homes, and it continues to update. idk bout yall but i use the Quick Reblog and Quick Queue features on mobile CONSTANTLY
not to mention the fun little things it does on occasion! april fools games, “pride? in my tumblr?” banners, Answer Time, even a a freaking alternate reality game for Guy Fieri’s birthday just cause some of the staff wanted to!
i know it costs money to do this, and im not surprised that it needs some supplemental income to continue. But this PostPlus idea seems, to me at least, like a TERRIBLE way of going about it.
@staff @support is there any other way that we as users can support yall for a change? even like direct donation, in the style of wikipedia? i cant be alone in the feeling of “if this website needs some money to run, i’d be willing to give”

What's hysterical about the idea of Tumblr subscriptions is that this site's whole damn userbase is poor. Every single day, a post is asking for donations, and most if not all of their rebloggers are also broke and only refraining from asking for money themselves to show some decency on someone else's post.
Who does this site think is gonna spend money on subscriptions? We're all carrying tin cups, most of us just don't have the follower count to bother holding 'em out! We're all broke! All of us!

Sony: *Did their homework and made a fun trailer filled with little references to decades worth of Venom comics as well as nods to the movie fandom*
Disney: *Don’t realize that Loki stole the space stone not the time stone and that the Avengers were the ones who altered the timeline because they forgot to watch their own movie*

"tumblr plus, the new paid subscription feature" is something i really genuinely thought and wished was posts-from-a-darker-timeline and i was SO sure it was which makes it so much worse
