they gonna clean up tumblr like they did to times square

i always believed if something ain’t broke,
it’s best to not try to fix it,
but you can find ways to make it better.
tumblr is,
or should i font “was”,
a place where folks could go to express themselves.

whether it was the artsy or creatives,
even the baiters,
it was a place where you could be yourself.
tumblr has launched some careers too.
this one and his sausage got a full career launch:


it had no rules when it came to pornographic content.
well they decided to ruin many lives today.
in two weeks,
they will remove all adult content from their site.
they claim they want to be a better and more positive community.
this is some of the statement that they posted…

Posts that contain adult content will no longer be allowed on Tumblr, and we’ve updated our Community Guidelines to reflect this policy change. We recognize Tumblr is also a place to speak freely about topics like art, sex positivity, your relationships, your sexuality, and your personal journey. We want to make sure that we continue to foster this type of diversity of expression in the community, so our new policy strives to strike a balance.

Why are we doing this?

It is our continued, humble aspiration that Tumblr be a safe place for creative expression, self-discovery, and a deep sense of community. As Tumblr continues to grow and evolve, and our understanding of our impact on our world becomes clearer, we have a responsibility to consider that impact across different age groups, demographics, cultures, and mindsets. We spent considerable time weighing the pros and cons of expression in the community that includes adult content. In doing so, it became clear that without this content we have the opportunity to create a place where more people feel comfortable expressing themselves.

Bottom line: There are no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content. We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community.

So what’s next?

Starting December 17, 2018, we will begin enforcing this new policy. Community members with content that is no longer permitted on Tumblr will get a heads up from us in advance and steps they can take to appeal or preserve their content outside the community if they so choose. All changes won’t happen overnight as something of this complexity takes time.


welp.
they’re over.
*shrug*
i swear they made the same decision when yahoo bought them,
but i noticed they didn’t reinforce it back then.
the thing is tho…

They need sponsorship to keep the site going

a majority of companies won’t sponsor a site with adult content.
that’s the same problem i faced with the foxhole.
tumblr doesn’t want to be associated as an “adult” site.
technically,
they aren’t.
the problem is that they started off being being “adult”.
tumblr was pretty much a place where smut had a place to exist.
not for nothing,
there were some 18 and under getting naked for attention on tumblr.
that was getting out of control.
in having to change the other sexual content,
they are gonna drive many faithful adult users off.
i mean,
where will i report all the good baits now?
twitter?
even tho i think the rest of us will adapt and move on,
it’s not going over well.
this is what i mean it’s about to be a dub.
i hope they all can find a new home tho.
i need to know where all the baiters are going.
sigh.
i’ll miss the tumblr “before”.
they had the best gifs and amateur sex in town.

lowkey: i think net neutrality is another cause as well.
if they ever down myvidster,
i’ll protest.

  1. where am I going to get my @zednray sex videos and pics when they drop. Can we talk about @itiszed for a moment. Le sigh lol it’s. Africa make some beautiful men.

  2. Actually, another major reason, and some of the hidden Foxholers up here know what I’m talking about is that there was a lot of child pornography on Tumblr. I’m actually glad they are removing adult content from Tumblr. One of my sites that does art has a number of folks migrating from Tumblr. These artists frequently do NSFW art & they were mentioning that there Tumblr accounts were being shut down. Folks thought it was a joke @ first but more folks kept coming.

    I actually agree with Tumblr in that regard. I have nothing against the amateur porn or pictures of adults since it was basically Onlyfans (but for free) but it will be better for the real creatives to have an outlet that’s acceptable for all audiences.

    I think it’s good they started cracking down on some of these places. Snapchat & many other platforms used to be like clean and now folks are doing sex stuff with them too.

    You could find helluva free pics and vids of attentionistos on Tumblr but it won’t be easy now.

    Twitter & Instagram might be next..

    You know a lot of E-escorts use those platforms to promote their Onlyfans and Justfor.fans pages. They cut adult content out of those & they are pretty much screwed. Facebook is going under some problems too probably.

    (The smartones go to Pornhub. Idk what kind of condition Xtube is in but it seems to have a modest community.)

    It reminds of that post I did a long time ago about the porn industry not having to worry about Onlyfans ruining porn at all.

    I don’t think they can get rid of MyVidster though. They can’t even stop illegal vids from being on there since the videos are not actually hosted on Myvidster or whatever. Myvidster is here to stay (hopefully.)

    To honest, I don’t think this affects any of us Foxholers that much. We just reblog it when it pops up and if they get rid of it, Oh well.

    1. ^i feel you on the child porn.
      it was becoming a real situation on there.
      my timeline would have all these naked black boys that got baited.
      it was starting to get to be too much.

      1. One day, I was on Tumblr. I’ve seen bait sites before…pic rolled on to my feed. Had me almost in tears…

        Anyways, not that Tumblr is about the go, I guess the Baitrz are gonna move to Twitter.

  3. Tumblr will end up like vine, long gone. She had her run, hopefully twitter will keep turning a blind eye to the porn. Not gonna lie tumblr had me low key addicted lol. I had a blog and made money from writing stories. It’s crazy because so many sex workers got clients from tumblr and are twitter mad lol.

      1. Twitter will likely have bait pages coming in 3…2..1 LOL. I feel like everyone knows about foxhole because of your findings (baits from tumblr) lol

      2. I was thinking more MySpace… it yeah I’m sure once they remove the explicit imagery people will be flocking to Dumblr… *snark*

  4. This tumblr fiasco is truly devastating and I need time to grieve this loss. Please respect my privacy during this difficult time.

  5. Lol..Y’all hilarious. Love the foxhole….having a Wake for Tumblr.😂😂

    I saw a post where the Onlyfans folks were like thinking there stuff wasn’t gonna get leaked anymore…If only they knew…and even though some clips are online…there are “other” sites that strip entire Onlyfans pages.
    This is why I was laughing at the Only fans trend. Unlike the pron industry, what value will the be when all their content is ripped?

    There’s this one site (not based in America) that has a shytton of adult movies and stuff…Someone posted a pic on Twitter and I never even knew there was a black porn parody of Black Panther..it might be ok but I don’t be know too much anyways.

    Twitter just as freaky as Tumblr…lol

      1. I don’t know if they know but there was a site floating around that had entire OF account rips. Mostly of the white guys but they had others with Tyson and Johnell and that Khalil Well boy. I don’t think the OFs can handle piracy since what’s the point of paying for content you can get for free. Tumblr isn’t the only place it can be hosted on.

          1. There is also one called Black Panda on the Peter Fever website(Asian niche)… there is a black gay porn star in that one.

  6. Well Tumblr had a good run, and good luck surviving with out Adult Content. I sincerely thank them for the 10,000 Penis Pictures, I have saved on my hard drive. My only problem is now what the hell am I supposed to do at work now to make the time go by. It is going to be so hard now to get through the work day especially now that I will have to actually do some work without being able to see what dumb ass jock got baited. Damn you Tumblr and your Board of Directors, yall aint SHIT!

  7. I feel like it’s not gonna fly anyway, porn always finds a way. If they do really ban the porn, they might as well just delete the site. There’s a lot of non-porn themed Tumblrs, but I feel like THOSE people have a second porn blog. (Like me) It’s a shame, I don’t know how I will procrastinate at work now. LOL!

  8. They probably want to clean it up to make it pretty for a potential buyer. Verizon/Yahoo don’t know what they were thinking when they decided to buy Tumblr and quickly realized they didn’t have the man power or skill like Google (Blogspot) and WordPress. Just detail it and plop a for sale sign on it.

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
