things it would be cool of yahoo to do now that it owns tumblr
babblr that works
missing e features
multiple tag searching
basically the resources to do al the stuff we want to happen to tumblr that they couldnt do before but now they can because yahoo has money
Woah hey so everyone’s freaking out about the whole Yahoo deal so I was like “okay I’m gonna go look this thing up then!” and look what I found!!
“… let it continue to operate as an independent business.”
In other words: Calm down people, Yahoo’s not gonna mess up your precious fandom blogging experience
Can I have a few solid examples? I know that it bought Flickr but I don’t really know how it changed it haha.
Eh, it is not really about Flickr or anything like that. I would like you to have a look at this list. Either way, it does not alarm me as much as the fact that Tumblr itself was low on budget before Yahoo bought it. Usually sites in that situation never stay around for long even after they are financially backed up.
The worst thing is that I predicted it, and it became true. Let us hope it does not close down too soon.
In the event that Tumblr will somehow change drastically to the point where none of us will want to come on anymore, feel free to send me your:
Cell Number [Make sure we’re in the same country!]
Go forth my friends! I want to stay in touch.
I was considering LiveJournal or Dreamwidth last night. Twitter is also a good option to me as it seems the second most used site by BMGf users.
It was because I knew something was going to happen, though. Let us hope that Yahoo does not dump this site like it has done with many others.
Let us face the truth. Bought or not, Tumblr will end up as an empty shell of a dead website anyway, if it is not that already. The only thing that keeps us here are the wonderful friends we have made.
If we have to move somewhere else, we will move all together.
arguments that should be used against Yahoo buying out Tumblr:
- their initial offer is too low
- possible unnecessary ad space
- stricter regulations
arguments that should not be used against Yahoo buying out Tumblr:
- “TUMBLR IS MEANT FOR OUTCASTS AND WEIRDOS ONLY”
- “NO ONE ELSE IS ALLOWED TO TOUCH OUR SACRED GROUND”
- “FANDOMS UNITE AGAINST FACEBOOKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Friendly reminder that Fraud, the leader of Great Gavel, is not the young man he appears to be - he is actually a fifty-something man who managed to reverse his age using technology and the energy of captured Pokémon.
Friendly reminder that Magical Pokemon Journey had a chapter about the journey of a senile Quagsire to find the Charmander he’d been friends with in his youth, only to find her grave…and then he promptly forgot all about it and once again tried to find her.
Friendly reminder that this chapter is what VIZ Media ended their run of Magical Pokémon Journey with, since it was cancelled early.
Friendly reminder of that quiet child in Castelia; that quiet lady in the trailer in Lostlorn Forest; that random backpacker that tells you about the completely unfounded rumors about Zoroark, then runs off and transforms into a Zoroark. Who isn’t a Zorua or Zoroark in disguise in these games?! (ʘ‿ʘ✿)
I get kinda pissy when people talk about “things that matter”
Like “hey stop doing your fun thing to look at these depressing facts, these depressing facts are important and what you are doing is stupid”
I mean yeah it’s good to know information about the world like that but
Just because something isn’t part of some political or social issue does not mean it isn’t important. If you are having a really bad day, the most important thing you see that day might be a cute cat video. You might have a falling out with a friend and you feel bad and you’re together somewhere later on and a silly song starts playing, hell, Gangnam Style or something, and you both sing along together and it helps mend your relationship, then that’s the most important thing of your day. Social and political issues are important too but those are things people must work in unison over a long period of time to change, and they are not more or less important than the problems of daily life. When people belittle things that don’t have to do with political and social issues, I cringe, because yes those are important but maintaining a happy and healthy life of your own is the most important thing above all else and sometimes the most important thing in the world at the moment happens to be a Pokemon game, or a drawing of a squid done by your cousin, or your favorite flavor of cake, or the caramelldansen, or watching blues clues on tv when you are home alone, or singing at top volume in the shower.
Anything can be important, very important, even if it seems trivial.
She has so deep blue eyes and sometimes I think that she can look into my soul because sometimes she just sits somewhere and stares at me.
i feel like we need fandom reaction pics
