Tumblr. Pure hellsite effervescence. Old internet energy. Home of the Reblogs. All the art you never knew you needed. All the fandoms you could wish for. Add to it or simply scroll through and soak it up.
Oh, and influencers? Don’t even go here. This is your space. Every video you find, every quote you reblog, every tag you curate, every waterfall GIF you secretly gaze at in wonder—that’s all you. You’re the explorer. We’re just a map you all keep on making. Welcome home. Welcome to weird. Make it yours.
Now picture all of the above, but on the go. That’s what this is.
Thanks for choosing Tumblr, a place to connect with others over shared interests.
There were some bugs with the settings. Now there are not. Carry on.

A Weird, Wonderful World
Tumblr is not for everyone, and it isn’t meant to be. It’s a weird place where people let their freak flag fly. It’s for people who want to immerse themselves in stories and ideas. Some of those stories are NSFW. I, personally, won’t let my kids on Tumblr until they are mature enough to navigate away from things they aren’t ready for… or when they become adults, whichever comes first. I actually appreciate that there are a lot more filters than there used to be because, unfortunately, there are people out there who will exploit others and Tumblr should not be giving them a platform. That said, I would recommend that Tumblr add a filter for creators to choose for their content only to be seen by 18+ (or age of adulthood in a region). I, personally, enjoy reading/writing fiction that would be inappropriate for younger audiences but, like many content creators, am responsible enough to indicate that it isn’t meant for children. Most writers include disclaimers on their work stating that underage users should not engage, but for many kids that just makes it seem that much more exciting and harder to resist. Let’s go ahead and give content creators the tools to help protect kids, most of us would use it.
God help me
I could frankly care less about whatever features the app has or what kind of content is allowed in the rules. As long as I get to scroll mindlessly through my dash and occasionally spit out the odd text post that nobody will read, I’m pretty much set. So here’s the thing: I’ve got a phone and an iPad, both of which are ancient by technology standards. Probably not a decade old, but they can’t be far at this point. The app works fine on them. Glitchier than most I’ve used, but I can still do all two of the things I usually do on tumblr with ease, so I can look past it. With all that said, WHY does the app crash incessantly on my brand new phone? It’s the only app I have that does this, so I know the phone itself isn’t the problem. It freezes if I exit out of the app for a bit, sometimes if I reblog a post or look in the notes, it’ll freeze if I look at someone’s blog too long. The only thing I can do that doesn’t have a chance of crashing the app is scroll - and even then I can’t go down TOO far. I’m genuinely confused at how this app functions perfectly fine on the oldest devices that I have, and yet can’t seem to stay open for longer than ten minutes at a time on a two day old phone. I’m open to any reasonable explanations for this, because I’m honestly at a loss, but mostly I just hope this gets resolved soon. I can’t use my iPad out of the house and I absolutely refuse to redownload Twitter. This hellsite is my one source of entertainment, man, cmon
Let’s cut to the chase
TUMBLR is, at least to a large extent, a very good porn site. Adults ought to be free to make their own decisions about the content they choose to view and contribute. TMBLR is free to set its own moderation policies. The way TUMBLR has approached this reality- and I understand the choices it has made, and why- has been an attempt to reach a middle ground, but it has been lackluster. In the 21st century, there are ways to set age limits for certain content, to moderate very highly offensive and illegal content reasonably well, and to do so without punishing the conscientious and law abiding adults that want to exercise their perfectly sound inclination to engage porn. Content providers should tag content as porn and the app should filter pornographic content for all accept those that opt to view/contribute porn. For those users that opt, require some authentication that has a reasonable association with age, and make it binding. If the user is caught lying about their age, ban them- ban their isp# or whatever number IDs their device, etc. If the content provider fails to tag content, ban them. If a user posts illegal content, block them, give them an opportunity to appeal, and then block them if they don’t or if the appeal fails.
TUMBLR is a great app- for all things, not only porn. It’s a worthy contender, and more than anything it can support the (legal, ethical) interests of everyone… users, advertisers, TUMBLR, and even the US Congress.
