As you may or may not know, tumblr oficially bans adult content starting on december 17, otherwise known as tomorrow. Because of that, going forward, I’ll be spreading my content around on a couple different platforms. Centralising on tumblr was a bad idea.
Here’s the list, broken down by what kind of content I’ll be uploading where:
Y’all probably know the drill by now - as Tumblr’s deadline for getting rid of all NSFW content approaches, I prepare my meager belongings and depart for greener pastures. I’ve ragged on this hellsite for a long time, but, the complete incompetence of the staff and barely workable format of the site aside, I did generally enjoy the atmosphere and community that Tumblr provided. I made some great friends through it, too!
Anyway, I’d rather not dwell on my takes on this site’s current state of affairs and get right to business. This particular blog will remain up until Tumblr decides to cast it to the abyss, but I am unlikely to post new content as long as the new policies are in effect. IF YOU’VE ENJOYED MY CONTENT, YOU CAN FIND ME AT THE FOLLOWING SITES:
A recent account! While I’m not sure for how long Twitter itself might allow NSFW content, a lot of Tumblr artists have opened shop over there recently, so I decided to follow suit. NSFW and SFW content, for the time being.
Another new account! NG has been around for a while, but some people threw it as an alternative to Tumblr and I decided to give it a shot. While I wouldn’t call NG’s format ideal for image galleries, the site’s taken notice of its recenadded a few functions aimed at its newcomers, which is pretty nice! Mostly old reblogs for the time being.
I’m still taking a wait-and-see approach to Pillowfort - it’s still on beta, rather barebones at the moment, and the servers have had a hard time keeping up with the growing userbase, but I’m hoping it might develop into a good service in the future. Mostly old reblogs for the time being.
So I just read up more on what the actual fuck is going on and what this means for NSFW content creators and this twitter thread really explains everything and why no amount of petition signing is going to change the direction tumblr, and inevitably twitter, is going
While a lot of artists went the ways of newgrounds and HF and mastodon and whatever else, a lot artists (myself included) just moved to Twitter because we were all mostly there already. But I’m not just bringing this up because I care about twitter, twitter definitely sucks, but because NSFW creators are very quickly running out of options.
Seems to explain the things going on with Tumblr lately.
I don’t make a living on nsfw anything, but some of you guys might?
I’m not a huge fan of censorship, so this is just plain worrisome anyway. I’m not entirely sure what to do other than help spread the word. =/
Are you fucking kidding me
Hey remember this post from a few days ago?
Well if you too think that’s bullshit, I advise you to check out this site right here.
I’m leaving tumblr soon, but having learned about SESTA & FOSTA recently, it’s got me a bit worried about the safety of NSFW creators in particular on major social media outlets.
By conflicting with
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, this set of bills can make entire websites responsible for the content of it’s users, putting them at legal risk if a user posts something the law doesn’t like – so the safest course of action is to play it safe and prohibit users from posting ANY remotely risky stuff – like NSFW content (thanks tumblr). It’s a bit like the EU’s Article 13.
It’s a bill that, on the surface, looks like it’s supposed to do good, but I’m not under the impression that it’s doing much more than harm – and it’s a step closer to the censorship of sexual expression, which I’m not really cool with, especially right after what’s happened to tumblr – effectively disrupting the livelihood of creators and purveyors of anything NSFW. Like you and I.
Maybe it won’t be an issue, MAYBE it’s an overreaction… but it’s currently on my mind and it has me worried. So perhaps, if you were previously unaware of the circumstances, you should be made aware.
Because after Net-Neutrality’s Repeal, Article 13, and tumblr metaphorically shitting on us, I’m not particularly optimistic…
So perhaps you should get in contact with your representatives and, like… Set them straight.
I don’t like talking about these big, world-changey politic-analogous stuff on my tumblr, but since we’re going to be burying my tumblr soon, I guess there’s not much of a point.
Not to panic more but twitter is probably about to do the same thing as tumblr
Tumblr was allot of fun, I will miss “ask” feature and all the awesome blogs that were so valuable as reference material. Sad of what is happened, but we will carry on.
