Rampant bots and explicit advertising

As a support staff, those at Tumblr seem intent on brushing their reports under a rug with the hopes that no one will be the wiser. This app is run rampant by bots - bots that target every blog and follow accounts using automated porn or dating app-oriented blogs. Tumblr's response? To do nothing about the actual problem even after dozens of reports to them, downright refusing to acknowledge they have an account verification problem and that possibly half of their platform is held firmly by automated accounts that could easily be weeded out by having a CAPTCHA check when creating an account, and choosing to punish their user base instead.

That's not even mentioning the inappropriate ads that run on your very own dashboard, which you cannot hide from your personal view or have any choice in dictating, as they do not attach to your cookies.

Do not allow yourself or children on the app as you will be immediately targeted by bots and explicit advertising, and will receive not even a word of acknowledgement of this problem by those who take reports, as they choose to remain blissfully aware of their platforms shortcomings, and prefer to give the finger to their users instead.

Constant crashes and Removed good features

What with the plague of the nsfw thing. Tumblr was already crashing down before that, quite literally. The app constantly just shut down on me not being able to keep up with my tumblr I guess because it couldn’t load the photos or save photos thus making it hang and shut down.

Second of all, who’s idea was it to remove the manage accounts feature? A lot of people out there has more than one blog and that was actually an amazing tool that helped in managing my blogs and now I don’t even use my accounts now because of the hassle of having to log out and log back in and the repetition of having to that just to manage my blogs. I’ve started using tumblr less and less. Everything was so much more convenient, to manage your accounts through your phone and now you can’t do that.

Very disappointed in what tumblr has become. I hope they learn unlike most companies and listen to their audience and provide because at the rate they’re going and new competition coming up, tumblr will be a fad just like MySpace

Photos and Asks

Okay so I like tumblr, but being an artist that draws on the iPad it’s seriously frustrating that every time I answer an ask I have to take a photo of it and THEN add it to a separate post with the drawings instead of just simply being able to answer the ask and then instantly place in my artwork. Tumblr is a decent app but this one thing both seriously bothers me and not to mention the only real way you can get anywhere on tumblr is if someone famous reblogs one of your posts and even then most people won’t actually check out the rest of your account. Tumblr is amazing and I love the whole ask idea but it’s becoming impossible to bare with the app version, I don’t want to keep putting my art on the computer either because it lowers the quality of it.

Honestly if you’re just there to post random stuff and move on with your life then this app is for you but if you want to be here for a long time and gain a following? Not so much.
