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”

Honestly nothing quite beats the holey unique experience of logging in to Tumblr essentially this scene:
And just being like "what the hell did @staff do today"
i'm looking at you @postplus

I love that the whole post+ thing has evolved into the contemporary equivalent of gathering in the town square to throw old cabbage at the poor fool in stocks who suggested it

I think we, just out of spite should keep commenting “I would pay 3.99 for this post” ect. On posts we like long after tumblr + is but a memory. Not for any reason other than it would be the funniest shit on earth

“Since everyone is on about Post Plus and what an absolute shitshow it is (and so they should be!) I decided to take a different approach and actually investigate the claims that you shouldn’t trust Tumblr with your credit card information.
(Background on me: I’m a web app developer and I know a thing or two about how to safely handle CC information)
Tumblr media
Here’s the web interface for entering your info. It looks like Tumblr is using a third party service called Stripe to handle card information, which - good. By doing it this way, Tumblr won’t have your actual card information on file, and most of the security stuff is handled through a 3rd party service that specializes in keeping your card info safe. That’s great!
But please look at that URL oh my god, why did they do it that way. Not pictured: The URL is like several hundred characters long and contains some sort of very long encrypted token. I’m not saying that isn’t a valid way to develop it but it really does not build trust you guys
Also, there appears to be debug notes right above the card number entry??? For some reason??? Someone seriously dropped the ball, I entered that test info with some other test data and I am 99% sure it works, and if the Stripe API works the way I think it does, something is really really wrong if that actually worked
Don’t trust Tumblr with your card data, although your card data probably won’t be directly leaked if there’s a data breach of Tumblr’s databases. Probably.

I am not concerned about Tumblr Post + becoming a big thing. What I am concerned about is small content creators not knowing it is illegal to make money off of fanworks and getting sued.
This kind of thing has happened before, and is the reason AO3 is such a big deal - because the site is specifically designed to fall under the laws of fair use.
If Tumblr Post + does become a real thing, do not use it for fan works.

Maybe I'm oversimplifying this @staff @postplus @support...
...but couldn't we just skip the clearly unwanted subscriptions and just make the "like" feature a $0.05 tip jar donation?
If I want to support a post, I can tip five cents by clicking like and having my pre-filled Tumblr wallet or credit card billed...it won't seem like much to the tipper, but it will add up for the creator!
200 Likes x $0.05 = $10.00
Tumblr media
And if I don't want to tip, but still want to interact or support, I can reblog, which also benefits creators in a way they have been begging to be supported! A percentage of any tip sent to the most recent post on a thread filters back all the way to the OP in smaller increments along the way, so everyone gets a piece of the shared glory.
Tumblr media
Creators would get more support/exposure, and Tumblr can still take 5% of all tips at the end of the day (for the funding of the HellSite), but no content is limited, the ridiculous backasswardness of Likes vs. Reblogs will be abolished, and everyone can make some money!
Tumblr media
If a troll on a post gets tips, OP still profits! (And can block them without contacting admin..) 🙌
A Dean quote bubble added on a completely unsuspecting and non-SPN post gets a tip? We both profit!! 🤝
Original content is posted and shared around and blasted up to 150,000 notes in likes and reblogs? EVERYONE who contributes on the thread profits! 🤝🥳🤝
Tumblr media
Having optional donations rather than paid subscriptions may even help Tumblr avoid a massive amount of lawsuits for fandom creators earning money off of protected content? (I don't know, but it doesn't seem like you've checked with lawyers about much of this, so why start now?)
Tumblr media
Basically...please do not subject us to paywalls, subscriptions, and maintaining a paid space like a goddamn second JOB.
We are loving, spiteful creatures - let us interact with each other, and reward each other, and hate on each other, and I promise we will pass the tip jar around.
I PROMISE.

How could Tumblr, in these times of massive statistical analysis of what your users like or dislike, have thought this is a good idea?
Also as a creator, what sort of hubris do you have to think I'd pay for your shitposts? I'd pay for your art I'd pay to help out out but to see you reblog a cat? I can't fucking pay for instant ramen I'm not going to pay the equivalent for a verified Tumblr user. The whole idea sounds like a joke. A verified tumblr user? Do any of you actually feel like celebrities on here?
Your users rejoice in the stupidity, the weird equality of this site where nothing is taken too seriously. Tumblr actually wanting to be paid for just how serious they are.... can't imagine it
