unpopular opinion @ the skin/accent team: if seeing some illustrated blood and guts on a 350px dragon .jpg makes you feel like you're a facebook moderator trying to filter out fucking CP and beheading videos, to the point where your boss needs to chide the playerbase for making you look at such ~horrible content~, you are the biggest wieners in the whole world and need to get a new job 👍

Why is this post flagged!?There is nothing in this post that violates Community Guidelines!
Staff. When will you stop flagging images that don't violate community rules !?
Are you aware that this is your catastrophic mistake. You are destroying the posts of a huge number of bloggers. Why don't you improve your image recognition program, after almost three years since you introduced censorship ?!

POST PLUS IS COMING, WHETHER YOU WANT IT OR NOT!
Despite the fancy survey, changes to the UI and TOS reveal we’re getting the service in the future whether we want it or not. Obviously, Post+ is a terrible idea that is trying to bank revenue on user content. Unlike patreon or onlyfans, tumblr’s primary focus is on FAN content. The legality of this is NOT in the users favor and as the new tumblr TOS states, said users will be entirely liable for whatever legal matters arise.
SO WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Besides filling out the survey, it’s time to show tumblr we mean business and show our displeasure by hitting them where it hurts.
We’re proposing a 24 hour log off as phase one of this protest.
WHEN IS THE PROTEST?
August 6th 2021
12 am Eastern Time (US)
6am Central Europe Time
7am Moscow Standard Time
9:30 Indian Standard Time
12 noon Hong Kong Time/Australian Western
1:00 pm Japan Standard Time
1:30 pm Australian Cental time
2:00 pm Australian Eastern Time
August 5th 2021
11pm Central Time (US)
10pm Mountain Time (US)
9pm Pacific Time (US)
THE END TIME IS 24 HOURS FROM START TIME!!!
So no posting, no queues, no likes, and no reblogs!
WHAT IF I CAN’T/WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
Like this post and share it AS MANY TIMES AS POSSIBLE. Use the hashtags #tumblrlogoff2021 or #postplusprotest on ANY and ALL social media.
WILL THIS WORK?
Maybe, maybe not. It’s an attempt at doing SOMETHING.
BECAUSE I’M A TIRED IDIOT, USE THIS TO DOUBLE CHECK YOUR TIME ZONE!!!!

Alright, so tumblr staff is acting like as if we tumblr users have enough money to pay other tumblr users.
tumblr forgets that their user base is basically just a bunch of alley rats huddled around a slice of cheese

Okay I woke up and heard about Tumblr+ and was not happy :(
So I wrote up this thing in like 3 hours with some crappy art and stuff just to get my thoughts out there of some way @staff can actually get some money without using @postplus, as everyone hates it.
If you have some ideas of your own or wanna draw some cursed pins you’d use go ahead!
(ignore all my spelling mistakes please, procreate doesn’t have spell checking)

I’m sorry, but you cannot tell me the same staff that just did a Q&A with a literal astronaut for this site are the same ones who are linking us to the Dr. Phil M&M x Guy Fieri OTP blog.

Scratch, Shred, and Eliminate. Bloody Bandages. Lumimax themself. Plague nests made of entrails. Aged Carcass, Shredded Rambra Carcass, Mangled Zeeba Carcass. The vast number of skins clearly depecting blood (Eliminate!, Massacre, Mmm Strawberry Jam, Have A Heart) (no shade to skin artists)
If staff is serious about the "no blood that shows suffering" rule, they'd need to get rid of all of these features as well.

Tumblr is really out trying to get people to monitize posts as if 90% of the content made on this site isn't fanwork of copyrighted material

Exhibits A, B, C, D, E, F, G
Tumblr recently announced a new feature called Post+ meant to help content creators make money while keeping a cut to help maintain the site. Not a bad idea, right?
The problem is that tumblr actively encouraged the use of Post+ in conjunction with fan works. Which is, despite the way they continue to side step it, highly illegal. Not enough people are aware of that fact.
Our mission is to force tumblr to either rebrand the Post+ feature as something for original content ONLY and/or offer a means to help the site survive outside of monetizing fan work. We want the see tumblr thrive but Post+ has the potential for ruining everything. Give us a better option, @staff ! In fact, HERE are some options!
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
Optional avatar and banner to use!
[Image description : a square shaped color gradient image going from purple to blue to cyan to green. A large red prohibition sign overlaid on the words tumblr post+. /End image description]
[Image Description : a tumblr header color gradient image going from purple to blue to cyan to green. On the left side is a red prohibition sign overlaid on the words tumblr Post+. Underneath is the words log off protest in bold letters. On the right side is the words I am logging off for 48 hours. /End image description]
Banner credit to @adairctedgibbgirl ! Thank you!
If the banner doesn’t size correctly, this this post HERE!
You can also spread the word on ALL social media (Twitter/TikTok/Facebook/Reddit etc) and reblog this post. You can also look at this post HERE for more ideas. Another option, if you’re using the mobile app, is to leave an honest review (be polite, be concise, don’t spam) on the App Store of your choice! The best and easiest way to protest is DON’T USE POST+!
WILL THIS WORK?
We got tumblr to temporarily hide the original Post+ posts and possibly made wip a thing. So who knows?
Keep checking @postplus-protest for updates and further info, especially updates to this post! Thank you, all of you, for participating or boosting!
Remember to reblog, use the hashtags #postplusprotest and #tumblrlogoff2021, and SPREAD THE WORD TO OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA!

part 1 of tumblr putting up paywalls

instead of a weird Premium Tumblr subscription model that is literally useless due to alternatives like Patreon and Only Fans that Tumblr stands absolutely no chance of realistically competing with how about you let me tip on posts??? like literally if y’all have to both monetize this site AND rip off another platform can you just steal the fucking Twitch Model™️??? let me donate based on my enjoyment of the content i could consume for free and then take your stupid finder’s fee you dumb little website
like “ah this post made me laugh. here is a dollar op. thank you for the serotonin”
“these gifs are really good and they must have taken a long time and also i got paid today so here is $5”
“so true, beloved mutual. here is $3. just because. why not”
“this person’s hot take is so terrible that i want to reply ‘here’s my two cents, shut the fuck up’ and literally donate two cents before i block them just to be petty. and i don’t even care if tumblr takes one of those two cents. in fact, in many ways that is even funnier”
✨ lean into the chaos of this platform and the impulsivity of your userbase you absolute buffoons. i am begging you ✨

List of things that would make Post+ more dangerous than its worth
Dear @staff, please rethink Post+ because of these reasons:
Tumblr is one of the last remaining websites where conversations and connection between people can be made freely without a paywall put between the users. Once you start making people pay just to connect, you will lose a large amount of user base to other sites, or you will condemn us to hopelessness and isolation.
A lot of the users here on Tumblr stay because they seek a different experience compared to other social media sites like Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube. We don’t want to pay for content, especially when there are other better and more legitimate ways to support content creators, artists, writers, etc, existing on other platforms like Patreon, Ko-fi, and services like Paypal.
Talking about monetizing blogs/content creators on Tumblr, you run the risk of getting copyright strikes from larger media corporations. A large majority of Tumblr user create fan content for free and it will be dangerous for us if corporations found out that we’re monetizing existing IPs.
This will also mean that instead of treating Tumblr like what it’s supposed to be: a blogging platform for people with similar interests to connect, you’re starting to treat it as an exclusive money-maker.
To reiterate @/gayarsonist: This makes Tumblr unusable as "social" media and instead this site will just be another commodity where everyone is expected to be successful and promote their personal businesses and network and joylessly devote even more of their already limited free time to produce content for the sake of capitalism. We don’t want the grind nor the hustle here on this platform.
Staff, you had to make this post to ask other users from targeting and harassing the beta testers for having paywall up. Do you expect any outcomes other than this. We are unwelcoming of your changes and I’m sure Post+ members will be sooner blocked on sight than be paid.
Also the one function of Post+ where the user cannot block people who’ve subscribed to them is just a gateway to paid harassment. There are some truly nasty characters out there who would do anything to hurt people, and you’ve given them the power to do so just because you want to make money.
I think there are more important topics for you to focus on rather than monetizing this website, like focusing on how there’s been a boom in TERF rhetoric, fascists, and porn bots ever since the porn ban. Also, the search function is inherently unusable. Please look into fixing these things before trying to implement something new that would get a lot of users leaving.
