Noooooooooooooooooooooo. There are changes that wouldn’t be so bad. An outbox, for example, so you can see what you wrote, the ability to follow people on secondary blogs, or even an optional chat box. Anything but family friendly!
I will kill you
Ummm tumblr shouldnt even be altered for kids in the first place. What the fuck they gon use tumblr for… Send those bitches to neopets
hey, no hatin’ on the neopets
I have seen other reposts of this with corrections, but I’m getting sick of seeing these anyway.
1) Yahoo Twitter only posts news related tweets.
2) Only Marissa Mayer’s twitter has posted anything about Tumblr and the last of those was on the 20th.
I just recently had a slightly interesting and new phone Scam call. With the cal she was claiming to be from a Bigpond Telstra (who we do not have our phone or internet with) stating that there had been some irregularities with our internet. The following then occurred.
Me: I’m sorry but we do not have any internet provider with Telstra.
Phone Lady: We are internet provider of whole world, we are based in England
Me: *not sure I heard that right due to her accent interrupts* I’m sorry could you repeat that please
Phone Lady: *slower* We are internet provider of whole world.
I then had to take a moment to stop laughing and informer her that I knew it was a scam upon which she hung up.
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadil
As much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.
We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
Not the sexy lingerie like I had promised, but I kept thinking how Tony wearing only the gloves and feet of the Mark 42 looked super cute and kinda reminded me of anime girls wearing big boots and gloves, which just made me want to draw this 8UUU So yeah, Magical Boy Tony Stark ~*~*~*~
