I’m really sorry that I can’t ever seem to help you all with what hurts you.
SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
Yahoo, you had better not touch my mother fucking tumblr.
Worick showing off his trade skills.
Speaking of Loveless, did it ever update past volume eight?
Yes it did~! Viz took it over, and volumes 9 and 10 are out currently. Volume 11 comes out in June~! <3
Spamming done~ <3
He’s so fucking smug. <3
…thankfully, these are the most recent updates, so I can enjoy this deliciousness without feeling like all of Maitho’s characterization is jacked from Seimei here.
Um, but I do have to say I’m concerned for Yun Kouga’s understanding of necks lately.
Just look at what he’s saying here.
I can just hear him saying this all in the most calm and understanding manner possible.
Is it really any wonder that he’s my favorite character?
Going to spam with a lot of Loveless spoilers, but I’ll tag them with “Spoilers” for those of you who have Savior (unlike me)~
