Subliminal Fakes

Fakes for fun.

    And so, it’s come to this …

    I never actually thought I’d be writing this post. I never thought we’d live in an age where artistic expression and hobbies were blanket banned just because a minority of people abused the rules of decency and guidelines…. but here we are.

    The decision buy Tumblr to tackle their “porn” problem by using a nuke instead of a scalpel is a ridiculous. People using this platform for illegal and nefarious ends are the problem and Tumblr wanting to be seen as forward thinking and taking the moral high ground are basically Thanos finger snapping all NSFW accounts out of existence. Many (if not all) of my posts have been marked for deletion on December 17th. So the time has come to leave and find a new platform to distribute my fakes.

    I started this blog as a means to keep everything in one place and I never dreamed of reaching numbers like 28k followers but the darker side to all this is that when I started I was in a bad place mentally. Jobless and diagnosed with Depression and Anxiety was a bad mix. I started faking to take my mind off it and focus on something I enjoyed and to give to others to make them happy. It made me happy and it still does. Just because the thing that makes you happy is deemed unacceptable by someone else doesn’t mean that it is any less important to you. I still use faking as a way to cope with my mental health and the fact it will now become harder to share the fruits of my labour has a knock on effect for me. I love talking to people about anything and everything. The fact people engaged with me, gave me compliments or just generally were amazing humans was the icing on the cake to all this. Tumblr are taking that base I’ve established away from me and I feel I’m in free fall mentally about it all. It’s killed me not having a computer to fake (those issues are still on going!) but it will hopefully be rectified soon.

    To all of you who’ve followed, liked, reblogged or even looked at my work. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the support and kindness displayed through this blog.

    I will still be around and I’m sure I’ll find another site to work with. I will always be around on my twitter @Demon_D4n and I implore you to go follow me if you want to stay up to date with me and be notified of personal fakes and the new home I find on the internet.

    This will be my last post on here.

    Thank you for the last few years and I hope to see you all soon on the internet. Please comment below if you have any ideas for a future home for me and I’ll also probably wait for the new year to start properly faking again but look for my watermark on fakes (I will obviously be updating the text on it!) Thank you again my friends!!!

    This was harder to write than I imagined.

    A Sincere Thanks.

    I want to start off with a sincere thank you to all. 

  • Thank you to everyone who liked or commented on my posts. 
  • A special thank you to all of you who reblogged my posts, You are the sole reason I gained over 3500 followers, a number I don’t take lightly. 
  • And a super special thank you to my super fans who consistently reblogged my stuff, or shot me a nice message of support. 
  • I’m sure you have all seen the news, after the 17th I am expecting my blog to be nuked.  I’m milling over what I’m going to do regarding my blog, but it will generally go like this:  Sunday, 16th: 

    So here are my thoughts moving forward...

    I love Tumblr, I’ve been a member since 2010, but I only started faking at the beginning of 2018. The interface is so simple, and it is basically the only tool for creating a scrolling feed of fakes. I’m upset to know my content isn’t welcome.  I will be moving my work to Deviant Art, I had created an account some time ago, the last time there was a Tumblr scare. I had stopped uploading there though because it was tedious and the Tumblr scare had passed.

    See the thing is about DeviantArt is that the number of faker fans is limited (from what I can tell). I just don’t get the feedback (notes) that I do here on Tumblr.  When the number of people who interact with your posts drops from an average of 100 to 10/20... the motivation to keep faking is not the same.  I hope you all follow my deviant art, but I can’t promise or expect to upload at the same rate as I have in the past few months. 


    WTF Tumblr

    So as best as I understand it, Tumblr got pulled off the Apple app store because they found some illegal content being hosted.

    Now Tumblr management is running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to get back in Apple’s good graces, and it seems that their harebrained solution (hopefully temporary) is just to make all NSFW content on Tumblr invisible.

    You can still see blogs you follow, but it seems like Tumblr is just trying to prevent me from getting to 10k followers. Ho hum.
