I would like this to be added to tumbler it would just make life so much easier
by NerdyChild on 2021/05/10 15:38
I love to scroll through my likes and see and read what I’ve previously liked but is hard because I have like 13k something different things I’ve liked and it would be nice if there was an easier way to go thorough my likes to see everything that I’ve liked maybe there could be different ways to sort likes last added and oldest added or by title by alphabetical order etc this would be a major help and it’s the only issue I have with tumblr otherwise it’s a amazing app
They ruined tumblr
by Batti Tano on 2021/05/10 15:04
Porn bots beo nazis and trump ad misinformation spam but LGBTQ and sex worker content creators can get F’d? Screw Tumblr and Apple. You prudish clowns. You ruined LGBTQ communities and you don’t care. You will.
Objective Platform 😉

Downhill We Go
by #Abuelo on 2021/05/08 16:15
Submitted a ticket for a bug that has been plaguing my app for nearly a year. Never received any feedback from support and apparently there hasn’t been an update that addresses this. It makes the app nearly unusable for me. It’s a drafts glitch that refreshes the page every time I post one. for example, I could scroll past 500 drafts, but once I post one I’m brought back to the top of the page and I have to scroll through them all over again. the frustration is real, I have tried all possible fixes on my end to no avail.

BUG STILL NOT FIXED? When you delete posts, takes you back to the top of your feed
by | TJ JR | on 2021/05/06 18:33
UPDATE, How has this bug not been fixed yet??? ... For real how does this app keeps getting worse? If you are scrolling down your own feed on your dashboard, and decide to delete a post from a few days ago, it takes you all the way back to the top of your feed and you have to scroll all the way back down again to get back to where you were. and why can’t you make GIFs out of Live Photos anymore? insufferable garbage.
TUMBLR IS NOT WORTH IT
by Shylene on 2021/05/06 08:47
I’m a content creator on tumblr, and though the format is great, being able to actually upload content is unreliable and sometimes even broken. Over the last few days over half of my posts have been flagged and removed for no apparent reason, hitting the appeal option is void of help, and there seems to be zero consistency on what tumblr allows and doesn’t allow. It’s to the point now where I have to appeal all of the posts I’ve ever made regardless of the content, and sometimes the appealing process never stops; so your post just sits there in limbo forever because tumblr has completely given up on having a decent app. 1/5 not worth, it’s not getting better. Do not get this app, just stick with Reddit, Pinterest, or Twitter. All of those far surpass this garbage while still providing the same content

Great! But my follower count list is weird
by _.morningstar._ on 2021/05/05 16:47
Love the app but for me this has been this way for a while. My follower count currently says 60 but when i look at who is all following me it does not show me everybody and then same goes to the people I am following. Would love for that to get fixed but other than that great app
Won’t open
by Ronbo33 on 2021/05/05 04:10
Use to be a great app but since iPhone update to 14.5 now tumblr opens to a blue screen that’s it. I have tried removing app and reinstalling but still the same thing. It works on my android devices just not my iPhone
More Ads added with every update!!
by ebcrewguy on 2021/05/05 02:00
This used to be a great app, until earlier this year. There have been a number of updates, which seem to result in more and more ads and less content. There are now repetitive ads every 3 posts, and no way to dismiss them now! Also, most ads seem to be obnoxious right-wing-agenda and Trump ads!! Trump LOST the election - why am I still seeing his face?!?
This app breaks almost every week
by Deal with it I guess on 2021/05/04 20:04
I'm always on it but I'd certainly like for it to not crash or for ads to mess up my screen for five to ten seconds, it'd also be great if today the app didn't just up and decide i didn't exist (but on the website I can log in just fine). This app will never not be buggy get used to it. How does this have a 4.1, this is a 2-3 star application.

FIX YOUR APP
by hcsmylie on 2021/05/04 17:44
if i could give the tumblr app 0 stars i would. the buttons on the upper right hand corner as well as the blog title and posts, likes and following tab, are impossible to see if you have a white background. this wasn’t an issue until you rolled out that sorry excuse of an update. fix your app.

We need new content and more art contest
Live for this
by theflealeader16 on 2021/05/03 02:17
I have had Tumblr for about a week now and I am thoroughly enjoying this app. I expected it to be like Twitter or Reddit, but no it’s like a mix. I love how it recommends me new things unlike Twitter and I enjoy the content (such as fan art, fan fiction, and memes). Great app! Would recommend to people who are just as obsessed with ships and memes!
Please fix this
by JoJo__1D on 2021/05/02 17:37
Despite content creators following the maximum file guidelines, gifs keep coming out blurry or with noise when they shouldn’t after uploading. It’s really annoying and discouraging for uploading content. I don’t usually leave bad reviews, but this isn’t okay.
Arbitrary deletes.
by Ace man I on 2021/05/02 04:22
I’ve had four accounts deleted this year for no reason that I can see. One day I’m scrolling along following folks I like and the next day my Acct has been deleted. Tumblr never says why and there’s no way to ask em. I’m done. People are leaving in droves because it’s just become garbage.
Banned for “all life matters “ comments

Major glitches
by Kwistowee on 2021/04/27 21:11
April 27th, 2021 - Every time I post an original edit using this app, the formatting (fonts in bold or italics, links, and colored text) disappears and I have to log into the desktop site to fix it. I’ve stopped creating original posts on the app entirely because they don’t work. And I can’t post edits I created on the desktop site using the app because that erases all formatting as well. And if I want to edit a post once it has been published, it is a guarantee that if I edit it using the app, that will erase all formatting as well. Reblogging someone else’s post is always an adventure because most of the time, every single comment on the post prior to my reblog is copied and pasted in a jumbled mess as though I had reblogged them in a disaster of a run-on comment. So posting and reblogging is not functional on the app. Liking posts and adding post to drafts or queue and adding tags to them is about all that works. But then, of course, you can’t post anything from your drafts of queue anyway because it gets screwed up... please help?

by KPokay on 2021/04/26 22:03
The app is good for the most part. My inability to dismiss particular ads makes me stop using. For example: I’m not going to click on an article about Sean Ha/nnity’s life (the most recent persistent ad). Give me the option to not see the same annoying ad over and over again.

No good.
by chanshawn11 on 2021/04/23 18:15
Instead of hiring content moderators, they got rid of most of the “sensitive content”. What a dumb move. They should just shut the site down.

But baybehhh, look at her glow up! Y’all just gotta experience it to be honest. Download it, try it out. See how it’s nothing like it used to be.

needs a stories feature
by Avangelicia on 2021/04/19 04:22
if theres any app that needs to jump on the bandwagon and add a stories feature its tumblr. instagram did it twitter did it just do it. would make the app 100 times better.
Thanks for allowing users to post whatever they like again!
by Tumbulation on 2021/04/18 22:58
Tumblr became popular for allowing users the freedom to post whatever they want. That’s what makes you different. Embrace what you have created. Market that product and monetize that.
Dislike the new logo
by jp.1v11 on 2021/04/18 17:45
I don’t like the new logo. It doesn’t combine with anything. Unfortunately I will have to send the app to the App Library with no place in the Home Screen. The app still has bugs and not intuitive behaviors. Images load very slow

Keeps unfollowing blogs i follow
by sewingnerd25 on 2021/04/18 04:35
So idk if anyone else has this problem but the main blogs i follow, i have had to refollow MULTIPLE times bc they keep getting unfollowed. I thought it was because some of them were not AS active, but even the accounts i like to regularly reblog from get unfollowed ALL THE TIME. These users probably think i am insane for following them multiple times when in reality it’s bc they keep getting unfollowed unbeknownst to me. This was a SEMI problem back in the day but now it is a full-fledged problem. Also so many nsfw bot blogs follow me and i have to keep blocking them. I love the DM function (great for talking to bloggers who mutually follow you etc), and also the mobile app crashes a lot less when reading lengthy texts/stories, but the unfollowing thing is driving me crazy. Please fix this bug, it’s pretty bad.

Getting used to it...
by _osojnruu.9 on 2021/04/17 07:47
It’s been a hard app to get into and since that whole ban on “nsfw art” I’ve been looking at it sideways but like I gave it a second chance and it’s not that bad tbh I’m just trying expand my art to other social medias rather than just Instagram it’s really hard to master and to get used it but am getting there Ig it’s just the same As any other social app it’s just the functionality is different I gave it four cuz that’s honestly how I feel about it :p
Give side blogs main blog functions!
by Manda2718 on 2021/04/16 17:58
I would love this app dearly if it weren’t for the fact that I cannot have my side log with main blog functions! I don’t get why tumblr would make us have ten million emails for different accounts just to have main blog functions? I would never read an email notification to a random blog I had to make for those functions. But if I could have my sideblogs with the main blog functions of following people, sending them asks from a side blog or even commenting on a post from a side blog, I would read that email!! It’s just extremely frustrating and this is coming from a person who’s been a user for 10+ years. It’s a simple fix. Everyone wins.
Making the most of it
by TenderlySharp on 2021/04/16 04:17
They sold out and got rid of really useful features that used to help you find quality content. They also dumbed everyone down with prudish sterilization of the human form. But creativity and imagination find a way around the stupidity, even if it takes longer than necessary.
my finger hurts
by I work in the DMV on 2021/04/16 02:32
I have been using tumblr since inception, but recent upgrades have not proven to be useful. Imagine scrolling down thousands of your pictures and every time you delete an image the app auto stupidly scrolls back to the top!!! I’m afraid of injuring my finger from all the useless scrolling. I’ll give fumblr one more chance and if the next upgrade is useless than I’ll part with them.

Buggy follower page full of spam. Too many ads
by DinosaurPancakes on 2021/04/12 17:39
The follower page has stopped being functional so now even though my follower count shows that bots have started to follow me, it isn’t reflected on my list of followers. I can’t even block these spam accounts if I tried because the page that would show them is broken. There’s also been a noticeable and distracting increase to the amount of ads I see and it’s pretty annoying.

I don’t like the interface. Aesthetically it’s pleasing, but it can be extremely difficult to find what people you’ve followed are posting. For one, sometimes it feels that text meshes together in a way that makes it hard to differentiate. In addition theres really no indication about when creators post.

Love this app but...
by 🐱🐯🦁🐣🐤🐥🐵🙈🙉🙊🐒 on 2021/04/11 18:35
I love this app but there are a few things that bother me. The the number of adds I’ve been getting has increased exponentially in the last few months and most of the time they are completely irrelevant to me and my interests. For example, I got an ad a few days ago for “men’s high performance underwear”. Why that would be of interest to me I’m unsure. Another problem is the ban of adult material which made sense at the time but now it’s gotten ridiculous. For artists who tend to dabble in the creation of more mature pieces, it’s unfortunate that they can no longer post those pieces on tumblr and get the recognition they deserve. Tumblr is a pretty great app but could definitely stand to improve a few things!!😁😁😁

Barely works anymore
by leeraloo on 2021/04/10 15:00
I love Tumblr and use it for stress relief. Few things beat lying in your bed scrolling tumblr on your phone and having a good time. But lately I haven’t been able to do that at all. I’ll get about 30 posts into my feed before getting an “unable to authorize” banner and then my feed just stops. It’s unusable at this point and incredibly frustrating. Maybe it’s just me but I’m so over it.
bug with sideblogs swapping urls
by vegas from the east coast BOAH on 2021/04/10 05:05
been using the app for years now but lately there&#39;s an annoying thing where opening the app gives your main blog a sideblog url (if any) on occasion, and swaps the posts urls with it even after going back to your main ://
You need to fix the bugs
by Kay121115 on 2021/04/10 00:04

An ok fandom site/app
by Fiona aka dragontail on 2021/04/09 15:27
There are literally some problems such as toxic character bashing, spam, and even nsfw blogs which I’ve blocked and reported but I think you guys should put more effort in managing your site. It’s no wonder most users choose amino and other more stable/safe sites/apps that actually do their freaking jobs once something problematic gets reported.
Unused Side Blogs Beings Used
by Your Best Friend's Girlfriend on 2021/04/09 08:06
Man, I don’t know what it is, but whenever I reblog something, it’ll show up on my main blog under a side blog’s name. It’s not always the same side blog. I can’t tell if it’s actually showing up correctly on my main blog. It’s frustrating to see.

PLEASe ADD MORE FEATURES FOR CONVENIENCE
by Anabell707 on 2021/04/08 05:56
Tumblr is a fun, (mostly) unproblematic, &amp; great app. I’ve been using it for years, however I have some suggestions. The likes page is extremely annoying to navigate &amp; find posts. I’m disappointed that there’s no “all the way down” button when there’s a “back to the top” one. Scrolling though is pointless because it takes hours to get nowhere close. Please add this feature in. Thank you for your time.
Disturbing ads
by Chell of Aperture on 2021/04/08 05:15
The surge in ads was already bothersome and annoying in itself. But now I am getting ads that either are just stolen information, or extremely disturbing things not even related to me. I wouldn’t even describe the ad for the sake of others imagination if they haven’t gotten it already but it has to violate their already ridiculous TOS. And the fact I cannot report the ad or anything is terrible. Don’t waist your time when they will actively try and ruin it for you.

I'm done.
by ms.applesauce on 2021/04/07 19:49
Used to be great. Hate the last few updates. Ever since the great purge ya&#39;ll have been terrible. The banner ads have also gotten obscenely obnoxious in their topics.
What happened to this app?
by already gold on 2021/04/07 18:57
This app used to be really good until I got a new phone. I didn’t remember my password to my account to I tried to reset my password. They sent me a link to reset my password and nothing happened after. It’s like I reset my password never to gain my account again.
Awesome

A place for creative minds and free thinkers. Not hostile like Twitter or superficial as instagram. An app where you can be yourself kinda like a safe space
Blog Switcheroo???
by Yoko's My Favorite Beatle on 2021/04/07 03:50
Tumblr has been THRIVING since wordpress took over!!! bugs that were around for TWO, THREE YEARS like broken blog search were finally fixed, and whenever new bugs happen they&#39;re fixed right away! way more transparency with these guys, so happy! but the most recent app update has been temporarily switching around my blog icons and making posts appear as they were made by other blogs of mine, lol, please fix? freaks me out!
fine, except for one thing!
by Derpface211 on 2021/04/06 22:37
this app is well designed but it would be great if i could send asks and submit posts from my other blogs and not only my main one, as i have different themes for accounts and don’t want to have crossover.

Love this app..glad there is still adult content available
Love the App, But Timestamps/Dates for Posts?
by TrivialPrince on 2020/04/09 20:33
I’ve used tumblr for over 8 years now and probably will use it for a long time to come! One thing that’s always bugged me though is that I can never see when a post has been posted or reblogged. This is kinda frustrating when trying to tell what blogs are active and which haven’t been active for upwards of a year. I’ve had multiple cases of blogs that I love becoming inactive while I was away from the site, and also cases where I see a blog that I like and I follow them, only for them to never post again because it turns out their most recent post/reblog was actually made a year ago and I just couldn’t tell because there wasn’t a time stamp for the post. It’s not a super pressing thing obviously, just something I’ve always wished were different! And if there actually is a way to see timestamps/dates for posts and I’ve just been overlooking it please let me know! (Also, this goes solely for the mobile app. I haven’t used the desktop site in probably years so I don’t remember if there’s a way to see dates on desktop or not.)
I love Tumblr, I hate this app
by Why do you need to know, cop? on 2019/03/24 03:29
This app has so many issues that have yet to be solved after at least a year or two of them existing. Despite the messaging system, which I’m sure has been critiqued plenty, inconsistently and unreliably updating or not updating while you’re using the app- you also can’t click on asks or even keep track of your asks in any way through the app. If you want to go look at one of your apps, you had better be keeping constant track of whoever asked it because all you’re going to get is a notification, and clicking on the notification (if it was answered) only takes you to the person’s profile. The app will randomly crash for seemingly no reason, even while under little to no stress. The double-click-to-like feature doesn’t work unless you tap a large body of text or an image and even then, it may not register properly (maybe user error but still inconvenient). You also can’t keep track of submissions in any way unless you just miraculously remember- I think you get notified but I don’t even think you get that much. Aside from all this, there’s a myriad of other functionalities and nuances that are almost entirely unimportant (like how if you click on a person’s name that’s attached to a post, it’ll take you to a dedicated page with nothing but that post and a couple other posts from that person’s profile below it). This was a poorly-thought-through review but I think it covers most bases. Otherwise, it works enough.
Brand New Review
by Charlie & Punkin on 2019/01/03 22:04
I’ve reviewed before but gave it the same rating. Before Tumblr was a mess because of their bad coding — crashing after a little while of use, GIFs and images refusing to load almost constantly, videos not playing correctly, the list goes on. But the new algorithm for detecting NSFW content to be “kid friendly” when it was never meant to be a website for kids is lazy. Staff are condescending and don’t listen to the user base. Not only that, but a large portion of users are here for nsfw content. I understand that there is legal trouble and it’s not necessarily tumblr’s fault, but what is their fault is not doing anything about actually illegal content and instead punishing everyone whether they were involved or not. Porn bots are still rampant, neo-nazis and white nationalists and pedophiles are still free to roam while artists and content creators suffer greatly from the way this algorithm works. Up the age requirement to be on and keep your safe mode thing, it wasn’t perfect but it was way better than getting my post removed for having a single pixel of skin tones visible on a selfie or a piece of innocent fan art. The only reason this isn’t one star is because I’ve been using this site for years and years and it is honestly my favorite social media platform. It’s niche, doesn’t invade your privacy, and has a lot to offer within its user base. It has so much potential wasted by a terrible management.
Crashed in big time
by Dchen78998 on 2017/11/04 05:12
I have being using tumblr for over a year now and it crashes me in big time. As I clean up on blogs that I follow the number stays on 514 but nothing to click on follow or unfollow and dashboard did not move at all as I tab for the update. Both web and app absolutely failed to move at all. Social media site like tumblr needs to be significantly improved on the platform. I am working very hard on my leisure to develop tumblr society for the world. The system video, photo, and multiple formats are very restrictive. We need tumblr to admit that most of there users are not children in fact very small percentage and so the platform needs to be a whole lot more adult friendly and at the same time more true society interactive social friendly. It is being existing for ten years already right? Please completely redesign and turn your app to be minimum 18 years or older and preferably 21 years and older. It doesn’t make any sense to do what Twitter or Facebook can already do and in other format alright. Seriously, can your team member truly just listen and truly make that difference? Most of your tumblr user don’t mind of paying for subscription, however, all of us care about all the inconvenience. This cannot wait, please make the major redesign and changes at once and not waiting at all. Your teams technology is too outdated, it needs completely overhaul and be five thousand times better and I mean it.
I used to love tumblr
by Desssssssssssssi on 2019/01/29 14:40
I’ve been using tumblr since 2010... my best friend put me on to it. I’ve been on and off for a few years now since i graduated high school. The app used to be good but now it’s just annoying. Still has funny post and is very informative but i hate the auto-reload feature. Since i don’t get on often, i like how i can scroll til forever without getting bored or seeing the same thing... but if i were to screen shot and send the funny or motivating picture to my friends or boyfriend, it refreshes as soon as i get back on. Small issue but highly annoying, i end up just not coming back for awhile again. Instagram i think is the only social media that doesn’t automatically reload. Yes you took away the NSFW content due to child pornographers which i 100% agree, get rid of the creeps! BUT to get rid of all nudity even if it’s pictures that are tastefully done or meant to be seen as art and not porn eh.... i think there should be a filter process... tumblr was great for expressing and exposing talent and creativity. You can’t put a limit on that. I don’t want porn back, but i don’t want my pictures being taken down because of an exposed nipple. Tumblr just not the same. People that were on before ALL the many many changes, know what i mean. Tumblr was a different outlet from your regular instagram or Twitter... it felt more private.. it felt more free... a place for creatives.... now it’s just.... blah. 🤷🏾‍♀️
Sadly disappointed in a once amazing app
by Keytothetruth on 2018/04/04 07:52
Tumblr has been a place I’ve come to for years to express myself. It’s somewhat my secret outlet. Having an app available is super convenient and I honestly prefer to use the app versus a desktop. If there wasn’t an app available i probably wouldn’t even use tumblr anymore. It’s extremely annoying when you’re in the middle of using the app and it crashes out of nowhere exiting you out the app. It seems like every time you guys update the app to fix bugs etc. there’s just another bug that’s created. How difficult can it possible be to finally get this right. Don’t update the app if you’re not sure it’s absolutely going to fix the problem. Sometimes posts are missing from my blog or others. I can’t even refresh my notifications without it freezing and me having to exit out he app and enter into the app again just to see new notifications. I can’t even view my drafts on one tab without exiting out my blog, which was one of my favorite features. Now I have to go to settings to view my drafts which is INCONVENIENT! Would be 5 stars if I didn’t have to exit the app 20 times a day just to use it. Using tumblr shouldn’t be a job people. Fix it or you’re going to lose people’s interest in a great website.
No Excuse for this App
by Standpoor on 2017/09/24 10:42
For one of the most popular social networking sites in the world, and after all this time, and given that most people access it through their phones, you&#39;d think Tumblr would manage to put together a decent app. Alas, their army of nerds has failed. If you follow more than a few active users and only check your account a couple times a day, you have to scroll and scroll and scroll, waiting for each new page to load, to find the specific kind of content you&#39;re looking for (say, videos, images, etc.). If the app crashes, you have to spend another five minutes scrolling to get back to your place. It&#39;s 2017. How is this still such an issue? There should be some kind of comprehensive, accessible filter that lets you fine-tune your feed. And automatically brings you back to where you had last scrolled? There&#39;s not even a reliable workaround: the archive button doesn&#39;t exist or the user has to choose a separate app theme or something with that specific function? It&#39;s definitely not there by default. And the ads. They&#39;re so large. Again, it makes infinite scrolling a chore; a quarter of each scroll is ad space, meaning more pauses for loading and less easily accessible content. I&#39;d happily by a reasonable subscription to disable the ads. Is programming really this impossible?
UuuuuuGGGHHHHHH
by its_johnkat on 2021/03/10 20:58
This app is terrible and I don’t really recommend it if you get easily frustrated by broken assets that you can’t even use even though they’re everywhere. An example of this is the search option on everyone’s blog. When I go to type something in on someone’s blog so I can search for a tag that they have, even if they have a lot of posts in that tag it’ll give me the “Oops nothing here in this tag! It just doesn’t exist!”. This has been an issue for YEARS. I have never been able to go in someone’s blog, manually type a tag and be able to click search to get me all the posts in that tag. This is also an issue for my personal blog. I haven’t been able to search a tag by manually typing it in. I have to put the tag on a post that is COMPLETELY unrelated to the tag just so I can get into it, and then I have to remove the tag from that post after just because I wanted to find it...... it’s a lot of extra work because of a bug that has gone unfixed for a long time. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve wasted having to scroll far down to a miscellaneous post so my followers don’t see a weird tag on an unrelated post, typing the tag on the post so I can click on it, and then deleting the tag from that post after I’ve gotten into the tag. Why is there a manual typing search option for specific blog tags when it doesn’t even work???
Never should have been put back
by Bo 👌🏻 on 2018/12/21 07:31
No app that contained any amount childporn should never be put back up for download. Blocking all “adult” content does not actually solve anything. Tumblr was slacking big time in keeping their users safe and keeping pedophiles and other disgusting people off of their site for years. I have had tumblr for 7 years and have used it about everyday because I love pictures, but no other site that I’ve ever been on can you accidentally run into illegal porn or dead bodies without having to search for it. We have been asking for years that tumblr’s age of use be moved up to 18+ because of the literally mentally damaging images you can accidentally see. not even mentioning that tumblr does nothing when someone under the age of use is on the site and refuse to delete them even though they are breaking the terms of service. banning adult content isn’t keeping the minors on the site safe because they have already been exposed to this stuff since tumblr has never cared enough to properly filter things and remove abusive and illegal content. Tumblr is not and has never been a safe or family friendly site. I was really hoping apple wouldn’t put tumblr back up and I’m honestly disappointed in the morals of both corporations but then again they’re corporations and don’t listen to what their user want so I’m not exactly shocked.
:(
by jo irwin on 2019/04/28 03:19
This app is... frustrating on a good day. When everything seems to be functioning properly, it’s fine but that so rarely happens anymore. So many things go wrong on any given day, it’s hard to keep track. Right now, asks seem to be busted for me and several others. We’ve gone through batches of “test asks” to see if they’re sending and receiving properly, after noticing a lack in our normal ask activity. I’ve also noticed a lot of trouble with posts disappearing after hitting send, not postings at all, connection issues, replies not showing up, and more. Most of this was noticed prior to the update but have shown no improvement after updating. I’ve had numerous issues with the app, especially after the December 2018 update. Please please please take your user base into account in a more interactive and comprehensive way. I’m sure you’re doing your best, but I think it’s time to re-evaluate your tactics. I’ve seen nothing but complaints about user interface for years now (to the point where it’s become a sarcastic joke) and a huge lack of addressing those issues from staff. I can’t see myself not using the app for good, just bc it’s where so much of my own following and work is. But I do frequent it less and less, due to these issues. So only two stars for now. Hoping to bump it up in the future.
Get rid of the pedos and the nazis instead of ruining the site
by TumblrIsDead on 2018/12/18 05:22
Via tumblrs new guidelines they’ve yet again screwed over their audience and sent thousands of their users scattered to the winds most of them going onto twitter instead of tumblr. You screwed up the site majorly by blindsiding and censoring the majority of tumblr. You let loose bots on the site that still haven’t been fixed. Allowed bigotry and racists to be allowed to roam free and haven’t done a thing about nazis that are still allowed to post genocidal rhetoric without shame. The main reason that tumblr was taken off of the App Store was because you being the staff of tumblr allowed pedophiles to run rampant and scar minors on the site, polluting the waters of every inch of almost every fan base. Instead of trying to react that problem rationally the staff of tumblr decided to ban all nsfw art on tumblr alienating a large portion of their users and striking down on sex workers who use this site to gain a following on a day that was supposed to represent a day against exactly this. I have been on this site for over 3+ years and have migrated to twitter with many of my followers and people who I follow because you people won’t get your crap together and start truly giving a crap about the people involve themselves on this app. Until you, meaning staff and higher ups, get your self straightened out- good riddance.
Uncaring staff
by Idkhere'saname on 2018/12/25 07:45
The staff of Tumblr have recently rolled out the censorship of any posts flagged as explicit. While this would be a great way to stop p*dophiliac content, n*zis, and anything else potentially harmful for other users, the system is broken and till this day (december 24th, 2018) continues to flag and censor posts that do not meet the nsfw requirement for being taken out of public viewing. Instead of content that could harm other users, the system-which is completely run by a simple bot not meant to handle this complicated of a task-instead flags posts that fit within the new guidelines. All over the site and app pictures, artwork, text posts, etc have been wrongly censored despite having saw content. Thousands of complaints have gone to staff about this issue, yet they have done nothing to help the user base on Tumblr. This has ended up hurting many people on the site. People now rely on websites to promote their online services-for example, an artist taking commissions to pay for bills-and have been receiving less and less exposure/traffic due to this flagging system hiding their content for others to see. Thousands of people have fled to other websites to find work due to their loss of the ability to rely on Tumblr as a means of exposure. Staff has done nothing to help us with the issues this new bot has been causing.
Suggested posts, Too many porn bots
by apmanda on 2018/08/22 13:35
I actually like this app for the most part, but they keep adding new features that suggest posts and blogs to you and while I like the IDEA of that, it’s SUPER ANNOYING to have that in my feed. I HATE THAT. And I also HATE having peoples posts pushed to the top of my feed because I may have “missed them.” It often screws with the chronology of some of the things I follow. Please remove the features from the feed and STOP BRINGING THEM BACK IN NEW WAYS, like, I’m not stupid, okay? Also, I get that this is probably a site problem, not specifically an app problem, but the porn and spam bots are a huge turn off for me. One thing that would make me more okay with it is if you could block blogs w/out having to go to them, like if I could just swipe and block them in my notifications, that’d be great. You may be able to do this on the computer, but I don’t use Tumblr on the PC enough to look. Other than that, I’ve enjoyed this app immensely. I don’t think it’s issues are really any worse than some other apps like instagram and Facebook especially. I have plenty of glitchy problems on BOTH of those apps just as much, so I’m not sure why people expect this one to be perfect when it’s handling much larger and more variant files. Weird.
Borderline Unusable
by Landofthebri on 2017/12/04 04:03
After the most recent &#34;best stuff first&#34; update the app functionality has plummeted. As others have mentioned, no matter how good my internet connection is and even when my other apps are loading just fine, Tumblr can&#39;t seem to load anywhere near the pace that it used to. On top of that, I&#39;m constantly having an issue where as I scroll it&#39;ll suddenly freeze. Waiting a few seconds for it to catch up again is fine but I&#39;ve waited upwards of a minute before. Again, the app has always had glitches and I&#39;ve put up with it for the most part but these issues make the app incredibly frustrating to use. Also, it&#39;s great that they included a switch for you to turn the &#34;best stuff first&#34; off so you can scroll chronologically. What&#39;s not great is that the button doesn&#39;t actually work. Any time I refresh my dash it goes back to the algorithmic organization, and the only way to get it to be chrono again is to close out of the app completely. There&#39;s so many more glitches: User&#39;s icons switching, notification alert not going away, can only view the first nine of the top ten trending topics, clicking on someone&#39;s chat sometimes takes me to someone else&#39;s chat, etc etc I could go on. Staff, some glitches are to be expected. Whatever. But this app is becoming borderline unusable.
As of yesterday...
by PxlatedTraveler on 2017/10/25 15:19
I have a constant grey message box at the bottom saying “Hmm...try again?” And that I should log out and back in if it keeps happening. So I log out and back in, and it’ll work...until I leave the app and come back, the it happens again, and it’s a huge pain to have to keep logging back in. Stuff won’t really update while this message box is running. Also, the app is still eating my photo posts. Last time I tried was before this grey-box issue. Two days ago. Also, I do not like my activity notifications stacking. In particular, the reblog ones. I don’t mind the likes being stacked. But I liked clicking on individual reblog to look at tags. Some people communicate via tags. Granted, I could just visit the post itself, but that has become a pain now too - where I used to just be able to view everything I wanted from my activity section, now I have to jump out and hunt the post down through my profile. God forbid I’m not looking for an old post. To be honest, right now it’s hard to double check on feature with that grey message box saying I have to log out and back in constantly. Nothing refreshes. Edit: logging out and back in does nothing for me after all. App currently does nothing for me except show me pop-up notifications (clicking into then shows a “no-post-here” page).
Take off the safe mode!!!! 😡😡😡
by Suoerlilyapplover on 2017/09/26 11:08
I have been using the Tumblr app for over 2 years. I actually was a fan of the major update that happened because I believe it made everything much more organized. Unfortunately I absolutely despise the latest update that moved the safe search to the settings. What&#39;s the point?!? The icon in the major update that let you press on it to show unfiltered posts and pictures and not show those posts and pictures was perfect. It was on the side, so it was not in the way of anything and worked perfectly. So why in the world did you get rid of it!?!?! The reason why I&#39;m so mad at this in the first place is because certain things don&#39;t show in &#34;safe mode.&#34; For example, the search &#34;soft beige&#34;, which is not an inappropriate search at all, doesn&#39;t let me see any pictures because of this &#34;safe mode.&#34; And I can&#39;t see any of these pictures by going into setting anyway because for some reason I have to be 18?!?! So you&#39;re telling me a 17 year old (my age) can&#39;t see pictures of a color because of this safe mode feature?!?!? This wouldn&#39;t be a problem if that icon was back. If you don&#39;t want to lose users because I know A LOT of other people probably have the same concerns as me. Return safe mode the way it used to be, an icon that you could press. Sincerely, An ex-Tumblr user
Staff Need to Fix Problems
by Emii O on 2018/12/22 19:44
Tumblr has been my go to social media for years. It’s got great content, a solid community, and a platform like no other. Unfortunately, however, every time there seems to be a problem with the software or people breaking community guidelines-staff again and again fail to address it in a way that is effective. An example of this is the newest update. For a while there had been issues with tumblr allowing child p0rnography, and there were countless “porn bots” (fake tumbler accounts trying to sell porn and spread virtual viruses, etc.). To fix this problem it was decided at all nudity and specifically female nudity will be banned. This is a big issue for veteran users, as they wanted the illegal and annoying porn targeted. Tumblr is one of the only platforms that allow female and male nipples to be shown without being flagged as in appropriate-something that was important to many of its activist users who believe that female nudity shown should be help to the same standards as appropriate male nudity (if guys can post photos shirtless, why can’t girls?). The new changes have been very disappointing, and rating this app low is the only protest that the staff of tumblr will care about since it is in the public eye. I hope our voices are heard, and the platform we all love is properly taken care of.
The staff who runs tumblr are idiots
by Amberh27 on 2018/12/19 14:10
The worst, most non-communicative staff I&#39;ve seen for any site. They will ignore any and all problems with the site, unless it threatens their revenue, then they&#39;ll &#34;fix&#34; it with the laziest and most destructive possible solution. For example: instead of hiring actual moderators or making even slightly competent bots, to combat the issues with users who used tumblr to share cp, they decided instead to ban any and all NSFW content, causing adult content creators and artists to lose revenue, as many used the site for their work. Their bots targeted any posts that it thought had NSFW content, that actually ended up not being NSFW at all, and shadowbanning people who they didn&#39;t like. While this all was happening, nearly their entire user base revolted against their &#34;Safer&#34; Tumblr (even though after their banning spree, porn bots and nazi blogs are still rampant on the site), what did the staff do? Nothing. No change to the policy, no &#34;lol jk&#34;, not even a single word addressing the problems people had with the policy or the thousands of creators it&#39;s screwing out of a job because they didn&#39;t feel like coming up with an actual solution. Just another cog in the internet censorship machine. (Also the app and website are filled to the brim with bugs that the staff will never fix it so just deal with it I guess)
Is Tumblr a Good App?
by Elastas on 2019/01/05 02:33
Once. Amidst all the screaming and can&#39;t evens it was a nice app. It did what it was supposed to do. You could run multiple blogs for different purposes and share things with your friends. Then they said they were &#34;making tumblr a safe place for all audiences&#34;. Which it was as long as the artists and bloggers, the dedicated users who usually did, tagged their content to keep the roadstops clearly marked. Parental supervision belongs to the parents. Your image was already tarnished by the cesspool of thought-police and angry hormonal 16 year olds taking to the site to voice their displeasure with different opinions. But it still persisted because of a loyal fanbase that liked your product. Dumping it with indiscriminate bot bleach and mocking the very people who made you who you are today without addressing or scrubbing the real issues was the worst thing you could ever do regardless of how functional a product it is. A site isn&#39;t given worth based on how it was built or what the automated programs are said to do for the ones who made it. It is from the ones who visit, contribute, and actively use the site. I hope everyone stops using it period and reminds you all of what that meant. Yahoo wasted their money on you. I don&#39;t recommend this app based on the company&#39;s treatment of its users.
I don’t understand why
by libby orr on 2020/01/18 05:51
I downloaded it for certain reasons, my friend does a lot of art on there. He sells it and show off his skills. So reason I made an account last year(a few months ago, it’s January so like around six or 4 months ago), first time ever making an account. I ended up deleting it because I never really got on it, I was busy and it was taking up room. So I tried creating a new account today said my email was in use, fine use another I have like six. All of them were in use! I’ve NEVER had it before until literally a few months ago(“last year”)! So when I try to SIGN IN it say NO ACCOUNT WITH THIS EMAIL!!! What the hell is going on?? I do not understand??? I just wanted to look at peoples art and an article that was on twitter😭😭😭 I’m so confused it keeps doing this I deleted it again and I’m gonna try to reinstall this is not what I was hoping for. I’m sorry I’m having issues trying to sign in. Also it does nothing when I say I forgot password, it just takes me back to the sign in screen when I click the email it sends me. Then once again says my email has no account on there.I kinda don’t wanna keep doing this...it’s almost 12am 😞 but at least my only job is to clean the house while my fiancé goes to work at 8 am tomorrow soon to be today🥺😅
A terribly coded and moderated cesspool of Nazis and racism
by Mechromage on 2018/12/28 03:33
After being removed from the App Store for child pornography, tumblr staff has decided to moderate their platform for the first time by banning all nsfw content. However, “nsfw” content is automatically flagged with a terrible coded and ineffective bot that blocks anything from pictures of Garfield to posts made by the official staff themselves. Meanwhile, pornbots are still rampant on the site and staff has made no attempt to moderate hate speech and extremism despite YEARS of complaint. It is easier to find Nazis on tumblr than it is to find a picture of a black person. Tumblr doesn’t care or listen to their user base while actively promoting racism, extremism, and genocide. If somehow that still appeals to you, tumblr entirely fails to function as a social media app. There are no notifications when you receive messages, images rarely load on mobile (god forbid gifs), and even on a high-speed WiFi connection the embedded video player fails to load more than half the time. Random posts are incorrectly flagged and blocked for pornographic content, including posts from staff itself. Developers regularly put out buggy, nonfunctional updates, and without a doubt the app is in a less functional state than it was three years ago.
Horrible Management
by EventideReverie on 2018/12/29 20:36
This website does not care about its userbase—only its own image. When the website gives examples of allowed content that could be viewed as explicit (such as breastfeeding women, ladies protesting while topless, and surgery images), it flagged the examples on the staff’s own posts on the matter. Preferring to flag first and then examine later, as sort of ‘guilty until proven innocent’ policy on adult content. At one point, you could bypass the bots searching for adult content from pornbots by tagging your posts with #sfw, and the pornbots swiftly took to doing so to avoid getting taken down. They briefly censored some of the minor tags with adult content but I have other, more popular tags, avoid being locked away from view even when those tags had way more pornographic content to sfw content than the censored tags. Everything I have said so far is factual, and I have seen it happen. I am not exaggerating or lying. They’ll keep actual adults from seeing adult content (While the concern for children bypassing those restrictions is valid, outright keeping anyone from seeing adult content is ridiculous) and censor nsfw accounts but they won’t ban obvious white nationalists hurling slurs around or ban harassing stalkers even when presented with multiple points of evidence of said harassment and stalking.
The new guidelines are transphobic
by e.zra on 2018/12/17 04:42
Exactly what the title says. By banning certain images based on a “female presenting nipple” basically staff get to decide who is a woman and who isn’t. This is one of the few sites where there is so much body positivity to all different types of bodies. This app is used as a source for so many sex workers who depend on their clients. By creating the NSFW ban, they are putting trans sex workers out of work. This isn’t just some ban, to a lot of people, these are their lives. The new guidelines say classical nude statues will not be banned, which translates to only white ppl get to naked? When we create accounts and agree to the 18+ age limit, we are signing up for all of these things. Don’t change the whole app for the sake of making it “child friendly” this new update isn’t bettering the app in any way, it’s destroying the community tumblr has built. The only community that is left now are all the bloggers rallying to protest and leave. If tumblr really wants to make itself better and safer for the community, start flagging the Nazis and pedophiles, don’t create rules with underlying racism and transphobia. These guidelines need to change, and this is NOT the change it needs. And until it does change in the way the tumblr community (not staff, the ACTUAL community) needs it to, do not get this app.
Tumblr features fresh original youthful innovative content
by SuddenSparkles on 2018/12/22 12:10
I’m not a tech nerd so my comments in this review are limited to content. Also I’m not on Tumblr that much but sometimes I wish to escape from the repetitive content found on other platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. Facebook I rarely use. I think the market niche of a social media application is important but that trying to be all things to all people can be a mistake (and not just online but in real life (#IRL) too!) and so I applaud Tumblr for outlining its community standards policy in a way that is full disclosure and not being sly about things like the other better-known entities. I’m still learning the app but the content is largely dependent on who you follow. If you want quality content choose your “friends” wisely! There’s a great deal of quality but one of the greatest concerns it seems to me is quality control and artistic rights ownership of content and protection. I’m not sure that’s an issue that is easily addressed here but it’s the ultimate Roman Colosseum in many ways. Throw out the content and watch it get “chewed up.”
Awful, don't get it please
by Jules211111111111110 on 2017/09/15 03:54
I&#39;ve been using this stupid website for 6 years and got the app on my phone some years ago and it&#39;s been a pain ever since david karp left and the xkit guy was run off. audios were horrible video playing has generally been horrible. nothing ever loads in a timely fashion even when there&#39;s full wifi bars. sometimes when i quick reblog things on my dash, the silhouette of my blog will stay there while i scroll, once this starts there&#39;s no end. the silhouettes keep appearing until the stupid app crashes and then you can&#39;t use it until tomorrow, even if you restart your phone. stupid app, stupid web developers, shame on you for fixing things that don&#39;t need fixing and ignoring ALL of the numerous bugs you have. Edit: with the latest update it keeps freezing once u scroll through every 5 posts or so and if you leave the app it will freeze, if u decide you want to reopen the app and use it like any normal person would, TOO BAD it won&#39;t open, will freeze your phone, then crash. The only way I have seen to fix this problem is to uninstall the app and reinstall, every single time i would like to enjoy these stupid memes. Where&#39;s the xkit guy? does tumblr staff actually exist??? why is this so hard for yahoo to figure out?? We may never know
It's the Hotel California of social media
by Ashton Claire on 2018/12/18 05:41
There&#39;s many reasons you could find Not to get this app/make an account. From the porn bots who put random links on your posts about Spider-Man to the way you never know if it&#39;s actually gonna load anything or delete your account for any given reason staff can find. But biggest thing to note or advice on is I give on this would have to be to run. Hit that back button. Swing left. Hit the arrow. Leave this page because when you join Tumblr you never leave. Forget anything good about Tumblr and just save yourself. I&#39;ve been on it for almost a decade and I yet can&#39;t get myself to delete my account or even log out on my phone. Please at least know that you are selling your soul to staff and I&#39;ve never seen anyone truly leave. It&#39;s fun to see people grow and change with you though. Go through movie franchise and T.V shows progression together. See funny videos and news from around the world. No matter who you are, you will find your people. You will find your place on here. Maybe that&#39;s why its so hard to leave.
Great stuff. Horrible app.
by JosieFFFF on 2018/07/20 00:35
I honestly LOVE Tumblr. It&#39;s so much fun and there&#39;s so much to see. But this app is driving me insane. It&#39;s actually made me cry more than once. I have had this app for many years and it has always crashed. And I don&#39;t mean every once in a while you&#39;re pretty much crashes about 20 to 30 times a day for me. Making it pretty much impossible to see anything. I try to update to see if that helps and it never ever helps. I don&#39;t think I can be on Tumblr for more than 20 minutes without it crashing. Sometimes the worst part is ample today I was on it for two minutes and it crashed I went back on there and then after about five minutes I crashed again and then minutes without it crashing. Sometimes the worst part is ample today I was on it for two minutes and it crashed I went back on there and then after about five minutes I crashed again. It&#39;s super frustrating when I&#39;m looking at something or I am in a specific place and then it crashes and then I can&#39;t find where I was before. I honestly love this place and would spend many hours every day on it but since he crashes so much I try to go on it as little as posible.
TONS of problems
by Camy T. on 2019/02/04 19:20
The NSFW ban in December did very little to fix the actual problem that users had with porn bots who are still everywhere on the site. In addition, blogs that post things advocating for Nazism and racism are still allowed on the site yet “female presenting nipples” are not. Tell me how that makes any sense. Not to mention with the NSFW ban they have severely crippled artists who use tumblr to get their art out and gain commissions and now they’ve limited text posts to only 100 word blocks and stopped posts with links from being shown in tags which affects the very large community of fic writers on the site. With these things, they’ve alienated almost every one of their users and made it clear that they care very little about the actual feedback that they receive from said users as evidenced by these new updates and the purely flippant way they address the emails that they receive from users that have very real concerns. As someone who has used the site for years, I’m honestly saddened to say that the way tumblr has been run since yahoo acquired it has made me and many others entertain the idea of simply leaving the site and never looking back. Something needs to be done to fix the site or else they may just run it into the ground themselves.
A frustrating app to use
by Riley Wa on 2018/10/18 22:28
I’ve been a tumblr user for years, both on desktop and with the app. In recent times I&#39;ve found myself using the app much more frequently, but that may be changing. Since the beginning, the app has had an issue where it frequently refreshes itself if you switch between apps, which is maddening if you happened to be reading a particular post or enjoying a particular piece of content just to lose it and have to scroll miles back down to find it again. But another feature that is ruining the experience is the recommended blog posts. There is no option to disable this feature other than to individually ‘X’ out of each post as they appear. Between these posts and the ads (which are understandable, as it’s a free app), most of my dash feels cluttered with content I don’t want to see. If I were interested in these recommended blogs, I would seek out and follow them on my own. If there were a way to disable this feature then it wouldn’t be an issue, but unless that becomes an option in the near future, I anticipate my use of the app will slowly dwindle until I don’t use it at all. And because I rarely use the desktop website, I wonder how much longer before I just delete my account altogether.
New notifications are unusable
by NotoriousNina on 2017/11/21 00:06
I&#39;m a long time tumblr user with two popular blogs. I post mostly text posts without titles. In order to find out which post is getting notes in the new notification I actually have to click through to the user name of someone who has reblogged a post of mine, then scroll until I see something reblogged from me. And that&#39;s assuming they even display usernames correctly - sometimes it shows people who only liked posts under reblogs and I find nothing at all. And it doesn&#39;t even show reblog comments separately!! So if a post gets more than 4 notes there is no way to see comments in your notes. This might seem like a small thing, but being able to see who is interacting with your posts is essential to using this site. Not being able to see when people at reblog comments is especially bad because it prevents conversion, feedback, &amp; interactions. And I have to waste a stupid amount of time just to figure out which of my posts are getting notes. This has removed all the community feel I had and despite still getting notes I basically feel I am screaming into the void now with no simple way to see what my followers are sharing, what they like, or what they&#39;re trying to say back to me.
This version is getting on my nerves.
by Droitzel on 2017/10/27 19:49
It keeps saying that some undefined thing went wrong and that I need to log out, then log back on. Only to treat this iPod as a stranger and tell me that a password reset has been sent to my email. After resetting the password it’s fine until I use another app. I don’t even close out of Tumblr and yet the moment I move to Music and change my song, Tumblr decides to begin the process over again. 13 passwords later, and I’m more than a little ticked off at this point. Please fix. As a separate side note, I can’t be here every day. Because of this, I’m missing who even KNOWS how many pictures, posts, videos, and gifs. Could you start working on a function that shows you what you haven’t seen since the last time you were on? Starting from where you left off and progressing towards stuff released just before you booted up the app? A feature like that would be a godsend. I’d help, but I only had one semester of C++ programming class, I doubt I’d be any help.
Staff can’t correctly fix issues to save their lives
by melancholystarlight on 2018/12/18 22:03
Now, listen. I love Tumblr. I’ve been using it for what feels like forever and it has offered me better, closer communities and jokes and fandoms than I could have hoped for. It’s my online home and I don’t ever want to leave it. But the way staff has been handling the issue of explicit content is extremely poorly executed. Porn bots, pedophiles, and other ridiculously awful things are still rampant on Tumblr; meanwhile, staff’s clever little flagging system is hiding perfectly SFW content from public view (it even flagged the photos that staff themselves used as examples of things that wouldn’t be flagged!), which is damaging to the reach of content creators across the site. Clearly tumblr staff does not know how to identify which problem needs solving, much less come up with an actually effective way to solve it. I’m not leaving Tumblr. Yet. But it cannot be denied that this flagging system is heavily flawed and this change in guidelines is hurting content creators. Also. “Female-presenting (we know you hate this phrase) nipples”? Are you kidding me Tumblr?? You acknowledge us calling out that horrible phrasing and yet you don’t change it at all?
Needs some improvement but not as bad as some people say
by Tombomania on 2018/02/09 15:03
Sometimes when I’m driving I like to get lost.....it’s a process of discovery. This holds true for Tumblr, too. I enjoy popping in to find posts that I might not have requested but that open doors into new possibilities. The app’s random distribution of posts is great in this way. However, for those individuals who want to display their work this is frustrating in that their potential audiences can’t be assured access. Your accent on what’s popular and not new or cutting edge may bring in more viewers but, in doing so, it makes your app no different than FB. Is that what you want because it’s not what many of your longtime subscribers want. One feature I’d like you to add would be Tumblr’s ability to download videos from other sources. When I want to post astronomy info from Space News, for example, the video option is never given. This really limits the amount of information I can share as this subject matter can be very visually oriented.
Tumblr has become a fascist hellscape and the developers couldn’t be prouder
by CyprusTrees on 2019/02/01 19:52
The most recent update is causing people to have seizures and literally die. They’re claiming they’ve made the site more accessible, but they seem to be forgetting that not every disabled person had the same needs. Not that tumblr has actually ever cared about any of its users that aren’t pedophiles or actual Nazis. Tumblr has been deleting people for no reason since before their Dec 17th ban, and they have admitted that when people try to regain access to their accounts. They claim it’s an accident, but let’s be real no one believes that. The recent ban has targeted the disabled and LGBTQ communities whether they admit it or not. This is not the first time the site developers have targeted these communities. They’ve locked the tags for any type of minority group, but they keep the porn tags open and well maintained. They claim that they&#39;re just trying to prevent sex trafficking, yet they keep the blogs that post literal child porn and advocate for the murders of disabled, LGBTQ, Black and Brown people. The developers for the tumblr app and site claim that they’re making the site more enjoyable for everyone, as long as everyone is straight, able bodied, and white.
Still upset
by gravitygemjj on 2019/02/01 05:16
I made a review earlier about how mad and disappointed I am in the NSFW ban—which I’m still upset about, but I’m here to review another issue. Tumblr just changed their color scheme to be a bit darker—which for me isn’t a big deal. HOWEVER, for others it is. Depending on the impairment, people have either gotten either better or worse from these changes. Worse as in some have gotten in the seizure zone. Which is never a good zone. But like I said, some have gotten better. Thing is though, tumblr has once again denied users of choice. It’d be better if they made the change an option so people could choose what they prefer and what is actually healthier for them. Instead of taking care of the real problems—like the literal nazis and white supremacists on this website/app, tumblr changes their shade of blue to a slightly darker shade of blue. Revolutionary. Really. Oh wait, I’m being sarcastic. Ha. So, anyway, I—among MANY users would appreciate it if you got rid of the real problems on this website/app. Your tiny change is not enough and not a step in the right direction. Fix your bugs. Undo the ban. Clean your mess. Give us options. Be considerate. Do better. Start listening to your users—before there’s none of us left.
Staff is terrible, new update is stupid, and everyone is done with the whole app
by 9:!);8:!;$/@!:&.!:&; on 2018/12/20 23:41
The staff are doing a terrible job with the updates and not even fixing anything important! They get rid of unimportant things that hurt people’s livelihoods without even glancing at everything else. They still allow nazis and white supremacist to use the app. They are doing a terrible job and just allowing tumblr to become a joke (seriously, everyone everywhere is making fun of how terrible the app is, even people ON the app). I get it, tumblr is supposed to be the place where you can just put out anything and be accepted and not have to worry about social constructs or anything. You can be as edgy, aesthetic, whatever roots your horn on tumblr. You can find safe communities to talk about your difficulties, being part of the lgbtq+ community, anything. But tumblr still allows perverts, nazis, white supremacists, homophobic people, basically everything terrible, but you won’t allow nsfw. It’s perfectly fine, just make people aware that they have to have a sensitivity thing or warning or something instead of just causing many people to lose their media platforms. They aren’t hiring ANYBODY, but everything I’ve mentioned above, is. Deal with it, now.
Love it just on thing plz check this out creators!
by jammer2frh9l on 2020/01/08 03:03
Hey first thing I wanna say is that it&#39;s a great app very social and If your into art there are Many Many people posting amazing artwork and I think it&#39;s a great way to show things off &amp; ect I would highly recommend trying the app just look for things your intrested in like my personal favorite Art in the search bar and boom there it is I would also like to add that there is so much you can change and adjust things to your liking for instance if you can be visable by searching your name and Ect... There is a bug that I find anoying but not like anyone would even care depending if you post a lot but if you post something and it&#39;s on the bottom it&#39;s hard to remove because it&#39;s not possible to reach the reach an button or it simply moves your screen up and acts like you did not press the delete button 200 times surely this is an easy fix so yea creator would love you if ya can fix that problem!
Really bad
by averysadboi on 2018/12/17 22:38
Ignoring real problems with the app and user base to focus on ad revenue by sweeping anything they would consider nsfw out the door. Nice job blocking many, many innocuous posts, especially those from lgbtq+ communities and for some reason those dealing with chronic illnesses are not allowed to speak. Nobody is foolish enough to think tumblr actually cares about being a better community. If that were the case, you could have started with the rampant bot problem that STILL persists, or maybe the hate groups that are everywhere. Your app is still buggy and broken, just from a technical standpoint instead of a content one. It crashes frequently, for all manner of reasons. Sometimes just trying to refresh the home page crashes the entire app. I cannot search tags on my own completely sfw page. The bot deployed to find nsfw images was clearly either completely untrained or minimally trained to detect the nsfw images, as images of text posts were even being flagged despite being sfw. Of course any visual detecting bot is going to have trouble distinguishing, but that’s a lot. Tl;dr come to tumblr where you’ll be banned for a lady nipple, but can receive anonymous death threats on the daily!
Amazing
by BlueHairedGoon on 2020/09/21 17:22
Since all of the reviews are outdated, I figured I would leave a more recent one. Tumblr’s a great app. It’s basically a combination of all the other social media platforms. You can find fanfiction and art and roleplays and anything else you might want in your fandom experience! I have a few personal bones to pick with the app, but nothing horrible. I’d appreciate a better tagging system. And when posts have been deleted by the original poster, they should be deleted off of everyone’s blog, the same with deactivated blogs; their posts should all be taken down. And you should be able to leave asks with all blogs, or switch which blog is your main. But overall, this app has helped me so much. I’ve been on it for a year and a half now, and I’ve met so many lovely people and found so much amazing content that I wouldn’t have had I not joined Tumblr. I definitely recommend the app to anyone who wants more content and a bigger community!
Take this stupid app down; it’s useless to us now.
by the-nia16 on 2018/12/19 19:16
I can’t begin to describe to you how disappointed and sickened I am by what was done to this platform. Not only have you destroyed something that has become a safe place for many groups that desperately needed it, you have also managed to alienate a majority of your users by choosing an app over the wants and desires of the people who would be using the app. Did it ever occur to any of you that, just maybe, we aren’t the issue and that you should have tried to attack the actual problem instead of taking this ridiculous “no tolerance” stance? Why should the majority be punished for the actions of the minority? And the issue is your own fault! If you were actually able to find a bot that worked, it would never have come to this. Hell, you still can’t make a bot that works considering how many porn blogs that are still fully accessible, but my blog has been flagged for content despite having no explicit media of any kind. I post pictures of my dogs, and that’s pretty much it. So tell me, what exactly did your new rules achieve? I hope your platform crashes and burns just so you understand that we are far more important than having an app in App Store.
Used to be good
by madsgrace17 on 2020/05/15 05:49
when i first downloaded this app, i always felt very welcome and felt more like it was a place for people to vent and find other people with similar interests/struggles or really anything in common. now within the past month, the account i had gained a decent following on had been deleted because “it went against the guidelines”. i’m not mad about why it was deleted but rather how. i only received two emails about the situation; one about one of my posts being taken down and then the final one saying that my account was terminated. there was no warning or a period for me to go in and fix my account before they deleted it. now whenever i try to go into the app, it just says a bunch of network errors and won’t even let me smash my nonexistent account. so now i’m stuck on this error page unless i wanna completely change my email and password to a different account. i definitely would not suggest going on here if you want to be open about what you’re going through and post you’re own content that expresses yourself. i used to really like this app and turned to it a lot when going through hard times now i’m sick of this bull crap. thanks for nothing Tumblr.
Too many bugs, not worth your time!!
by Shadow3013 on 2019/11/29 17:53
This app is way too buggy. I use it on my iPad and for some reason every time I make a photo or video larger it automatically rotates the screen from landscape to portrait EVERY SINGLE TIME which is very frustrating. And what makes no sense to me is that an update was just pushed out for the app so this problem should’ve been solved by now. Also not to mention when you’re scrolling the avatar doesn’t follow the post, meaning you have to go all the way to the top of a post just to see who posted it and when it’s a long post that can be very annoying. Lastly, this porn issue has to be fixed. Every time I come on this app I see that a new porn blog has followed me. If you were gonna stop people from posting NSFW content I think this should be included too. Bottom line is don’t download this app unless your willing to put up with a lot of bugs that can easily be fixed since they were here a year ago!
A Shoddy App with Even Shoddier Staff
by LadyAzirah on 2019/01/02 12:36
I’ve been a member of Tumblr for over 7 years. For all that time, this platform was supposed to be a place of creative freedom. With the implementation of the ban of pornographic material on this website, Tumblr has condemned legitimate sex workers, artists, writers, the LGBTQIA community, the chronically ill, and all others who came for the creative freedom of expression to a place that no longer welcomes any of us. But sure, keep up with leaving the Nazi propagandist and nationalist blogs up and free to spout hate and vitriol against minorities. Do absolutely nothing about the porn bot blog spam. The ban of pornographic content has done nothing but exacerbate the original problems that millions of Tumblr users have complained to the staff about for years. Tumblr has always been a shoddy website from a programming aspect and this app is proof of that. However, they kept a loyal user base of artists because they weren’t censored. Until now. And now, Tumblr is paying for it. Thousands have migrated wholly to Pillowfort, Twitter, and other various social medias in an attempt to regain their loyal followings from their heyday of Tumblr. And if something doesn’t happen to fix this issue, they’ll continue to lose users.
Notification Tab
by acolorblue on 2017/11/09 07:19
The recent update completely messed up the notification tab for me. Every time I open the app to view my notifications something weird happens and they become stuck with a very big chunk of the tab in just a solid white color while the notifications are scrolled up. Basically, to put it in simple words, I can’t view my notifications or scroll. At all. And when I somehow manage to fix it it’s by a series of random steps like switching blogs’ notification tabs, then switching back again. And on top of that, when it actually works it is so much more inefficient than the previous system. I enjoyed looking through my notifications and seeing what my mutuals reblogged and then looking at the tags on what they reblogged but now mutuals and nonmutuals are grouped together under one post so that I can’t easily tell if a mutual reblogged or interacted with my post. And when I click to view the group of people who interacted with my post I can no longer touch the tab and be automatically taken to that post on my mutual’s blog to see their tags. I really dislike this. It feels like necessary features that improved my experience were taken away.
Disappointed
by What the f89 on 2019/07/22 05:30
To be honest, I like the concept of tumblr and I like seeing tumblr posts on Instagram so I gave it a try, but I couldn’t really get the hang of it. It’s one of those sites where I feel like you have to be an OG or really good at navigation. I like all the features on it and SOME of the little remarks when something doesn’t load or show up or anything of that kind. But the main reason I downloaded it was for a comfortable and accepting place for things NSFW type content where I would feel safe viewing. I was unaware about the whole banning thing. What happened to “go nuts, show nuts?” Making Tumblr a better site is what you should’ve done instead of banning a whole community of people. And when I searched up NSFW there was a little snarky remark about not “getting” it and it was kind of a punch to my insecurities, not gonna lie. Because NSFW content is kind of like a type of art and if you kick someone down for liking it then aren’t you a bully? Just saying. And I feel like you should also gain some common sense about banning popular content after losing a ton of your users. Anyways filter better, do better, bring back NSFW. Or die out. We’ll find out soon i guess.
Hasn’t Solved Any Actual Issues
by bismuth83p on 2018/12/21 06:36
I want to preface this by saying I’m not all too bothered with the NSFW ban in theory; there are countless other sites that facilitate NSFW content and its producers, if tumblr doesn’t want it that’s fine. HOWEVER their filtration algorithm for said content is an absolute joke. Users primary issues were NOT with general NSFW content posted by artists, but with the rampant and ridiculous number for porn bots and spam bots on the site. Just as well, the site has major issues with Nazi/white supremacy blogs, as well as CP; NONE of these issues have been addressed or resolved by this new terms update, even though blogs and content such as this poses the most threat to user safety. Furthermore, this new half-assed algorithm they’ve chosen to ‘flag’ NSFW content doesn’t even work. I still see porn bots and spam all over my dashboard, in my inbox, and in my followers list. In fact, it’s even gone up in frequency since this new update. Ultimately this was a slap-dash non-effort on staff’s part to resolve an “issue” that wasn’t even an issue to begin with, and completely ignores the actual safety breaches and user comfortability problems this site has had for years. What a complete managerial mess.
y’all really did this huh
by angel ♡ cake on 2018/12/27 22:05
It’s hilarious to think that a company would do whatever it can to destroy its own user base, but that’s exactly what you’ve done. An NSFW ban can really destroy an artist’s livelihood by not allowing their art to be seen by potential commissioners, and when it affects more than just NSFW art, you know it’s a problem. Your system flags art that is skin colored, even if the art itself doesn’t even feature “female presenting nipples” (and how dumb as that phrase?). Not only are you hiding artists from potential buyers, but you haven’t even gotten rid of the problem areas of tumblr. Literal nazis are using your website, but have not been purged from it in anyway. Bots of all kind plague every corner of your site, but you have done nothing to destroy them. Actual pedophiles have active accounts. How are you claiming to be “family friendly” when people like that are on your site? How can you claim that, when blogs about positivity are marked as NSFW and blogs preaching hate are allowed to roam free? Banning NSFW is not the answer, but it’s what you’ve chosen, because you’re hungry for money. And the ban doesn’t even work, so that really shows how well your team is. Happy holidays ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Tumblr doesn’t really care about its users
by Linzerj on 2018/12/19 02:58
The old system for filtering nsfw content worked fine. When used correctly, the sensitive content toggle and nsfw tag were enough to keep minors from accessing adult content. The problem comes when Tumblr staff refuses to listen to its users about issues such as porn bots and neo-nazis running rampant on this hellsite. Porn bots don’t tag and follow everyone and continuously spam other people’s content, and yet with this ban they’re still here. Furthermore, unfiltered neo-nazi propaganda is arguably just as harmful to minors on the site as other nsfw content, yet tumblr has never made any move to remove these toxic people. The decline of tumblr really began when Yahoo and Verizon took over, so a big 🖕 to you for wanting to keep your site “pure” but not actually listening to users and enacting such a discriminatory and overall stupid ban. People with perfectly SFW blogs and content are being flagged by your imperfect filtering system that you’ve implemented as well, which makes the site even more difficult to use and enjoy. Overall, EVERYONE who uses Tumblr is unhappy with these new policies and how they are being executed. Sincerely, a disgruntled user
Smh
by B-Hodge on 2018/12/17 23:22
I understand what they are trying to do but the way they are going about it is just wrong. Of course child porn is bad and should not be allowed but that does not mean they guys have to start hiding all adult content, that is like putting out a candle with a fire hose; it’s just excessive. What they should do is target the problem at hand and work on improving their algorithm and other methods they use to screen illegal content such as child porn, so it is more effective; that is literally what other social networking sites do and it’s proven to be very effective. By hiding all adult content they are hurting themselves (as I cannot imagine this is having any net positive effect for you guys just based on the public’s reactions over the past month and especially today), upsetting a lot of people, destroying the time and work people have put into developing their blogs, and ruining not only people’s enjoyment but for some a source of income. Overall, they could have gone about solving this problem a better way that could have received approval from the public for improving your security without the backlash of getting rid of one of the characteristics that made Tumblr so great and unique.

I would like this to be added to tumbler it would just make life so much easier
by NerdyChild on 2021/05/10 15:38
I love to scroll through my likes and see and read what I’ve previously liked but is hard because I have like 13k something different things I’ve liked and it would be nice if there was an easier way to go thorough my likes to see everything that I’ve liked maybe there could be different ways to sort likes last added and oldest added or by title by alphabetical order etc this would be a major help and it’s the only issue I have with tumblr otherwise it’s a amazing app

Downhill We Go
by #Abuelo on 2021/05/08 16:15
Submitted a ticket for a bug that has been plaguing my app for nearly a year. Never received any feedback from support and apparently there hasn’t been an update that addresses this. It makes the app nearly unusable for me. It’s a drafts glitch that refreshes the page every time I post one. for example, I could scroll past 500 drafts, but once I post one I’m brought back to the top of the page and I have to scroll through them all over again. the frustration is real, I have tried all possible fixes on my end to no avail.

BUG STILL NOT FIXED? When you delete posts, takes you back to the top of your feed
by | TJ JR | on 2021/05/06 18:33
UPDATE, How has this bug not been fixed yet??? ... For real how does this app keeps getting worse? If you are scrolling down your own feed on your dashboard, and decide to delete a post from a few days ago, it takes you all the way back to the top of your feed and you have to scroll all the way back down again to get back to where you were. and why can’t you make GIFs out of Live Photos anymore? insufferable garbage.
TUMBLR IS NOT WORTH IT
by Shylene on 2021/05/06 08:47
I’m a content creator on tumblr, and though the format is great, being able to actually upload content is unreliable and sometimes even broken. Over the last few days over half of my posts have been flagged and removed for no apparent reason, hitting the appeal option is void of help, and there seems to be zero consistency on what tumblr allows and doesn’t allow. It’s to the point now where I have to appeal all of the posts I’ve ever made regardless of the content, and sometimes the appealing process never stops; so your post just sits there in limbo forever because tumblr has completely given up on having a decent app. 1/5 not worth, it’s not getting better. Do not get this app, just stick with Reddit, Pinterest, or Twitter. All of those far surpass this garbage while still providing the same content

Great! But my follower count list is weird
by _.morningstar._ on 2021/05/05 16:47
Love the app but for me this has been this way for a while. My follower count currently says 60 but when i look at who is all following me it does not show me everybody and then same goes to the people I am following. Would love for that to get fixed but other than that great app
Won’t open
by Ronbo33 on 2021/05/05 04:10
Use to be a great app but since iPhone update to 14.5 now tumblr opens to a blue screen that’s it. I have tried removing app and reinstalling but still the same thing. It works on my android devices just not my iPhone
More Ads added with every update!!
by ebcrewguy on 2021/05/05 02:00
This used to be a great app, until earlier this year. There have been a number of updates, which seem to result in more and more ads and less content. There are now repetitive ads every 3 posts, and no way to dismiss them now! Also, most ads seem to be obnoxious right-wing-agenda and Trump ads!! Trump LOST the election - why am I still seeing his face?!?
This app breaks almost every week
by Deal with it I guess on 2021/05/04 20:04
I&#39;m always on it but I&#39;d certainly like for it to not crash or for ads to mess up my screen for five to ten seconds, it&#39;d also be great if today the app didn&#39;t just up and decide i didn&#39;t exist (but on the website I can log in just fine). This app will never not be buggy get used to it. How does this have a 4.1, this is a 2-3 star application.

FIX YOUR APP
by hcsmylie on 2021/05/04 17:44
if i could give the tumblr app 0 stars i would. the buttons on the upper right hand corner as well as the blog title and posts, likes and following tab, are impossible to see if you have a white background. this wasn’t an issue until you rolled out that sorry excuse of an update. fix your app.

by marniek100 on 2021/05/04 03:56
Theres a glitch that makes it so I can’t see my own controls on my own blog (like edit theme, follow blog etc) whenever I use the app. It’s very frustrating.

We need new content and more art contest
Live for this
by theflealeader16 on 2021/05/03 02:17
I have had Tumblr for about a week now and I am thoroughly enjoying this app. I expected it to be like Twitter or Reddit, but no it’s like a mix. I love how it recommends me new things unlike Twitter and I enjoy the content (such as fan art, fan fiction, and memes). Great app! Would recommend to people who are just as obsessed with ships and memes!
Please fix this
by JoJo__1D on 2021/05/02 17:37
Despite content creators following the maximum file guidelines, gifs keep coming out blurry or with noise when they shouldn’t after uploading. It’s really annoying and discouraging for uploading content. I don’t usually leave bad reviews, but this isn’t okay.
Arbitrary deletes.
by Ace man I on 2021/05/02 04:22
I’ve had four accounts deleted this year for no reason that I can see. One day I’m scrolling along following folks I like and the next day my Acct has been deleted. Tumblr never says why and there’s no way to ask em. I’m done. People are leaving in droves because it’s just become garbage.
Banned for “all life matters “ comments

Major glitches
by Kwistowee on 2021/04/27 21:11
April 27th, 2021 - Every time I post an original edit using this app, the formatting (fonts in bold or italics, links, and colored text) disappears and I have to log into the desktop site to fix it. I’ve stopped creating original posts on the app entirely because they don’t work. And I can’t post edits I created on the desktop site using the app because that erases all formatting as well. And if I want to edit a post once it has been published, it is a guarantee that if I edit it using the app, that will erase all formatting as well. Reblogging someone else’s post is always an adventure because most of the time, every single comment on the post prior to my reblog is copied and pasted in a jumbled mess as though I had reblogged them in a disaster of a run-on comment. So posting and reblogging is not functional on the app. Liking posts and adding post to drafts or queue and adding tags to them is about all that works. But then, of course, you can’t post anything from your drafts of queue anyway because it gets screwed up... please help?

by KPokay on 2021/04/26 22:03
The app is good for the most part. My inability to dismiss particular ads makes me stop using. For example: I’m not going to click on an article about Sean Ha/nnity’s life (the most recent persistent ad). Give me the option to not see the same annoying ad over and over again.

No good.
by chanshawn11 on 2021/04/23 18:15
Instead of hiring content moderators, they got rid of most of the “sensitive content”. What a dumb move. They should just shut the site down.

But baybehhh, look at her glow up! Y’all just gotta experience it to be honest. Download it, try it out. See how it’s nothing like it used to be.

needs a stories feature
by Avangelicia on 2021/04/19 04:22
if theres any app that needs to jump on the bandwagon and add a stories feature its tumblr. instagram did it twitter did it just do it. would make the app 100 times better.
Thanks for allowing users to post whatever they like again!
by Tumbulation on 2021/04/18 22:58
Tumblr became popular for allowing users the freedom to post whatever they want. That’s what makes you different. Embrace what you have created. Market that product and monetize that.
Dislike the new logo
by jp.1v11 on 2021/04/18 17:45
I don’t like the new logo. It doesn’t combine with anything. Unfortunately I will have to send the app to the App Library with no place in the Home Screen. The app still has bugs and not intuitive behaviors. Images load very slow

Keeps unfollowing blogs i follow
by sewingnerd25 on 2021/04/18 04:35
So idk if anyone else has this problem but the main blogs i follow, i have had to refollow MULTIPLE times bc they keep getting unfollowed. I thought it was because some of them were not AS active, but even the accounts i like to regularly reblog from get unfollowed ALL THE TIME. These users probably think i am insane for following them multiple times when in reality it’s bc they keep getting unfollowed unbeknownst to me. This was a SEMI problem back in the day but now it is a full-fledged problem. Also so many nsfw bot blogs follow me and i have to keep blocking them. I love the DM function (great for talking to bloggers who mutually follow you etc), and also the mobile app crashes a lot less when reading lengthy texts/stories, but the unfollowing thing is driving me crazy. Please fix this bug, it’s pretty bad.

by _osojnruu.9 on 2021/04/17 07:47
It’s been a hard app to get into and since that whole ban on “nsfw art” I’ve been looking at it sideways but like I gave it a second chance and it’s not that bad tbh I’m just trying expand my art to other social medias rather than just Instagram it’s really hard to master and to get used it but am getting there Ig it’s just the same As any other social app it’s just the functionality is different I gave it four cuz that’s honestly how I feel about it :p
Give side blogs main blog functions!
by Manda2718 on 2021/04/16 17:58
I would love this app dearly if it weren’t for the fact that I cannot have my side log with main blog functions! I don’t get why tumblr would make us have ten million emails for different accounts just to have main blog functions? I would never read an email notification to a random blog I had to make for those functions. But if I could have my sideblogs with the main blog functions of following people, sending them asks from a side blog or even commenting on a post from a side blog, I would read that email!! It’s just extremely frustrating and this is coming from a person who’s been a user for 10+ years. It’s a simple fix. Everyone wins.
Making the most of it
by TenderlySharp on 2021/04/16 04:17
They sold out and got rid of really useful features that used to help you find quality content. They also dumbed everyone down with prudish sterilization of the human form. But creativity and imagination find a way around the stupidity, even if it takes longer than necessary.
my finger hurts
by I work in the DMV on 2021/04/16 02:32
I have been using tumblr since inception, but recent upgrades have not proven to be useful. Imagine scrolling down thousands of your pictures and every time you delete an image the app auto stupidly scrolls back to the top!!! I’m afraid of injuring my finger from all the useless scrolling. I’ll give fumblr one more chance and if the next upgrade is useless than I’ll part with them.

Buggy follower page full of spam. Too many ads
by DinosaurPancakes on 2021/04/12 17:39
The follower page has stopped being functional so now even though my follower count shows that bots have started to follow me, it isn’t reflected on my list of followers. I can’t even block these spam accounts if I tried because the page that would show them is broken. There’s also been a noticeable and distracting increase to the amount of ads I see and it’s pretty annoying.

I don’t like the interface. Aesthetically it’s pleasing, but it can be extremely difficult to find what people you’ve followed are posting. For one, sometimes it feels that text meshes together in a way that makes it hard to differentiate. In addition theres really no indication about when creators post.

Love this app but...
by 🐱🐯🦁🐣🐤🐥🐵🙈🙉🙊🐒 on 2021/04/11 18:35
I love this app but there are a few things that bother me. The the number of adds I’ve been getting has increased exponentially in the last few months and most of the time they are completely irrelevant to me and my interests. For example, I got an ad a few days ago for “men’s high performance underwear”. Why that would be of interest to me I’m unsure. Another problem is the ban of adult material which made sense at the time but now it’s gotten ridiculous. For artists who tend to dabble in the creation of more mature pieces, it’s unfortunate that they can no longer post those pieces on tumblr and get the recognition they deserve. Tumblr is a pretty great app but could definitely stand to improve a few things!!😁😁😁

by DjPaulVolume16 on 2021/04/11 03:05

Barely works anymore
by leeraloo on 2021/04/10 15:00
I love Tumblr and use it for stress relief. Few things beat lying in your bed scrolling tumblr on your phone and having a good time. But lately I haven’t been able to do that at all. I’ll get about 30 posts into my feed before getting an “unable to authorize” banner and then my feed just stops. It’s unusable at this point and incredibly frustrating. Maybe it’s just me but I’m so over it.
bug with sideblogs swapping urls
by vegas from the east coast BOAH on 2021/04/10 05:05
been using the app for years now but lately there&#39;s an annoying thing where opening the app gives your main blog a sideblog url (if any) on occasion, and swaps the posts urls with it even after going back to your main ://
You need to fix the bugs
by Kay121115 on 2021/04/10 00:04
Unfortunately since Tumblr has updated and “fixed” the bugs people have been experiencing I have experienced more bugs. I am currently not able to access notes on any post. Usually I love tumblr but this issue is driving me up the wall.
An ok fandom site/app
by Fiona aka dragontail on 2021/04/09 15:27
There are literally some problems such as toxic character bashing, spam, and even nsfw blogs which I’ve blocked and reported but I think you guys should put more effort in managing your site. It’s no wonder most users choose amino and other more stable/safe sites/apps that actually do their freaking jobs once something problematic gets reported.
Unused Side Blogs Beings Used
by Your Best Friend's Girlfriend on 2021/04/09 08:06
Man, I don’t know what it is, but whenever I reblog something, it’ll show up on my main blog under a side blog’s name. It’s not always the same side blog. I can’t tell if it’s actually showing up correctly on my main blog. It’s frustrating to see.

So for some reason today you can’t upload videos from your phone onto Tumblr. It used to work. Now it doesn’t. What’s going on?
PLEASe ADD MORE FEATURES FOR CONVENIENCE
by Anabell707 on 2021/04/08 05:56
Tumblr is a fun, (mostly) unproblematic, &amp; great app. I’ve been using it for years, however I have some suggestions. The likes page is extremely annoying to navigate &amp; find posts. I’m disappointed that there’s no “all the way down” button when there’s a “back to the top” one. Scrolling though is pointless because it takes hours to get nowhere close. Please add this feature in. Thank you for your time.
Disturbing ads
by Chell of Aperture on 2021/04/08 05:15
The surge in ads was already bothersome and annoying in itself. But now I am getting ads that either are just stolen information, or extremely disturbing things not even related to me. I wouldn’t even describe the ad for the sake of others imagination if they haven’t gotten it already but it has to violate their already ridiculous TOS. And the fact I cannot report the ad or anything is terrible. Don’t waist your time when they will actively try and ruin it for you.
This app is okay , but get rid of those r pro anas.
by Maylee Kk!!!@@Ok Slay! on 2021/04/07 23:56
Look i love this app but you guys should get rid of some pro ana’s that r still on this app , there’s a lot of pro ana’s coming back making people starve themselves it’s like 2012-2014 again , they are promoting eating disorders and disorder eatings maybe you should take down THE whole pro ana WORD in this app.
Prefect app for fandoms.
by Angelo1909 on 2021/04/07 23:01
If you love Tumblr then you&#39;ll enjoy this app. The only issue I&#39;m experiencing is with the GIF feature to attach to your post. — Honestly, this is better than that $h¡t hole twitter.

Used to be great. Hate the last few updates. Ever since the great purge ya&#39;ll have been terrible. The banner ads have also gotten obscenely obnoxious in their topics.
What happened to this app?
by already gold on 2021/04/07 18:57
This app used to be really good until I got a new phone. I didn’t remember my password to my account to I tried to reset my password. They sent me a link to reset my password and nothing happened after. It’s like I reset my password never to gain my account again.
Awesome
by Diahtime1996 on 2021/04/07 16:58
A place for creative minds and free thinkers. Not hostile like Twitter or superficial as instagram. An app where you can be yourself kinda like a safe space
Blog Switcheroo???
by Yoko's My Favorite Beatle on 2021/04/07 03:50
Tumblr has been THRIVING since wordpress took over!!! bugs that were around for TWO, THREE YEARS like broken blog search were finally fixed, and whenever new bugs happen they&#39;re fixed right away! way more transparency with these guys, so happy! but the most recent app update has been temporarily switching around my blog icons and making posts appear as they were made by other blogs of mine, lol, please fix? freaks me out!
fine, except for one thing!
by Derpface211 on 2021/04/06 22:37
this app is well designed but it would be great if i could send asks and submit posts from my other blogs and not only my main one, as i have different themes for accounts and don’t want to have crossover.

Love this app..glad there is still adult content available
Love the App, But Timestamps/Dates for Posts?
by TrivialPrince on 2020/04/09 20:33
I’ve used tumblr for over 8 years now and probably will use it for a long time to come! One thing that’s always bugged me though is that I can never see when a post has been posted or reblogged. This is kinda frustrating when trying to tell what blogs are active and which haven’t been active for upwards of a year. I’ve had multiple cases of blogs that I love becoming inactive while I was away from the site, and also cases where I see a blog that I like and I follow them, only for them to never post again because it turns out their most recent post/reblog was actually made a year ago and I just couldn’t tell because there wasn’t a time stamp for the post. It’s not a super pressing thing obviously, just something I’ve always wished were different! And if there actually is a way to see timestamps/dates for posts and I’ve just been overlooking it please let me know! (Also, this goes solely for the mobile app. I haven’t used the desktop site in probably years so I don’t remember if there’s a way to see dates on desktop or not.)
I love Tumblr, I hate this app
by Why do you need to know, cop? on 2019/03/24 03:29
This app has so many issues that have yet to be solved after at least a year or two of them existing. Despite the messaging system, which I’m sure has been critiqued plenty, inconsistently and unreliably updating or not updating while you’re using the app- you also can’t click on asks or even keep track of your asks in any way through the app. If you want to go look at one of your apps, you had better be keeping constant track of whoever asked it because all you’re going to get is a notification, and clicking on the notification (if it was answered) only takes you to the person’s profile. The app will randomly crash for seemingly no reason, even while under little to no stress. The double-click-to-like feature doesn’t work unless you tap a large body of text or an image and even then, it may not register properly (maybe user error but still inconvenient). You also can’t keep track of submissions in any way unless you just miraculously remember- I think you get notified but I don’t even think you get that much. Aside from all this, there’s a myriad of other functionalities and nuances that are almost entirely unimportant (like how if you click on a person’s name that’s attached to a post, it’ll take you to a dedicated page with nothing but that post and a couple other posts from that person’s profile below it). This was a poorly-thought-through review but I think it covers most bases. Otherwise, it works enough.
Brand New Review
by Charlie & Punkin on 2019/01/03 22:04
I’ve reviewed before but gave it the same rating. Before Tumblr was a mess because of their bad coding — crashing after a little while of use, GIFs and images refusing to load almost constantly, videos not playing correctly, the list goes on. But the new algorithm for detecting NSFW content to be “kid friendly” when it was never meant to be a website for kids is lazy. Staff are condescending and don’t listen to the user base. Not only that, but a large portion of users are here for nsfw content. I understand that there is legal trouble and it’s not necessarily tumblr’s fault, but what is their fault is not doing anything about actually illegal content and instead punishing everyone whether they were involved or not. Porn bots are still rampant, neo-nazis and white nationalists and pedophiles are still free to roam while artists and content creators suffer greatly from the way this algorithm works. Up the age requirement to be on and keep your safe mode thing, it wasn’t perfect but it was way better than getting my post removed for having a single pixel of skin tones visible on a selfie or a piece of innocent fan art. The only reason this isn’t one star is because I’ve been using this site for years and years and it is honestly my favorite social media platform. It’s niche, doesn’t invade your privacy, and has a lot to offer within its user base. It has so much potential wasted by a terrible management.
Crashed in big time
by Dchen78998 on 2017/11/04 05:12
I have being using tumblr for over a year now and it crashes me in big time. As I clean up on blogs that I follow the number stays on 514 but nothing to click on follow or unfollow and dashboard did not move at all as I tab for the update. Both web and app absolutely failed to move at all. Social media site like tumblr needs to be significantly improved on the platform. I am working very hard on my leisure to develop tumblr society for the world. The system video, photo, and multiple formats are very restrictive. We need tumblr to admit that most of there users are not children in fact very small percentage and so the platform needs to be a whole lot more adult friendly and at the same time more true society interactive social friendly. It is being existing for ten years already right? Please completely redesign and turn your app to be minimum 18 years or older and preferably 21 years and older. It doesn’t make any sense to do what Twitter or Facebook can already do and in other format alright. Seriously, can your team member truly just listen and truly make that difference? Most of your tumblr user don’t mind of paying for subscription, however, all of us care about all the inconvenience. This cannot wait, please make the major redesign and changes at once and not waiting at all. Your teams technology is too outdated, it needs completely overhaul and be five thousand times better and I mean it.
I used to love tumblr
by Desssssssssssssi on 2019/01/29 14:40
I’ve been using tumblr since 2010... my best friend put me on to it. I’ve been on and off for a few years now since i graduated high school. The app used to be good but now it’s just annoying. Still has funny post and is very informative but i hate the auto-reload feature. Since i don’t get on often, i like how i can scroll til forever without getting bored or seeing the same thing... but if i were to screen shot and send the funny or motivating picture to my friends or boyfriend, it refreshes as soon as i get back on. Small issue but highly annoying, i end up just not coming back for awhile again. Instagram i think is the only social media that doesn’t automatically reload. Yes you took away the NSFW content due to child pornographers which i 100% agree, get rid of the creeps! BUT to get rid of all nudity even if it’s pictures that are tastefully done or meant to be seen as art and not porn eh.... i think there should be a filter process... tumblr was great for expressing and exposing talent and creativity. You can’t put a limit on that. I don’t want porn back, but i don’t want my pictures being taken down because of an exposed nipple. Tumblr just not the same. People that were on before ALL the many many changes, know what i mean. Tumblr was a different outlet from your regular instagram or Twitter... it felt more private.. it felt more free... a place for creatives.... now it’s just.... blah. 🤷🏾‍♀️
Sadly disappointed in a once amazing app
by Keytothetruth on 2018/04/04 07:52
Tumblr has been a place I’ve come to for years to express myself. It’s somewhat my secret outlet. Having an app available is super convenient and I honestly prefer to use the app versus a desktop. If there wasn’t an app available i probably wouldn’t even use tumblr anymore. It’s extremely annoying when you’re in the middle of using the app and it crashes out of nowhere exiting you out the app. It seems like every time you guys update the app to fix bugs etc. there’s just another bug that’s created. How difficult can it possible be to finally get this right. Don’t update the app if you’re not sure it’s absolutely going to fix the problem. Sometimes posts are missing from my blog or others. I can’t even refresh my notifications without it freezing and me having to exit out he app and enter into the app again just to see new notifications. I can’t even view my drafts on one tab without exiting out my blog, which was one of my favorite features. Now I have to go to settings to view my drafts which is INCONVENIENT! Would be 5 stars if I didn’t have to exit the app 20 times a day just to use it. Using tumblr shouldn’t be a job people. Fix it or you’re going to lose people’s interest in a great website.
No Excuse for this App
by Standpoor on 2017/09/24 10:42
For one of the most popular social networking sites in the world, and after all this time, and given that most people access it through their phones, you&#39;d think Tumblr would manage to put together a decent app. Alas, their army of nerds has failed. If you follow more than a few active users and only check your account a couple times a day, you have to scroll and scroll and scroll, waiting for each new page to load, to find the specific kind of content you&#39;re looking for (say, videos, images, etc.). If the app crashes, you have to spend another five minutes scrolling to get back to your place. It&#39;s 2017. How is this still such an issue? There should be some kind of comprehensive, accessible filter that lets you fine-tune your feed. And automatically brings you back to where you had last scrolled? There&#39;s not even a reliable workaround: the archive button doesn&#39;t exist or the user has to choose a separate app theme or something with that specific function? It&#39;s definitely not there by default. And the ads. They&#39;re so large. Again, it makes infinite scrolling a chore; a quarter of each scroll is ad space, meaning more pauses for loading and less easily accessible content. I&#39;d happily by a reasonable subscription to disable the ads. Is programming really this impossible?
UuuuuuGGGHHHHHH
by its_johnkat on 2021/03/10 20:58
This app is terrible and I don’t really recommend it if you get easily frustrated by broken assets that you can’t even use even though they’re everywhere. An example of this is the search option on everyone’s blog. When I go to type something in on someone’s blog so I can search for a tag that they have, even if they have a lot of posts in that tag it’ll give me the “Oops nothing here in this tag! It just doesn’t exist!”. This has been an issue for YEARS. I have never been able to go in someone’s blog, manually type a tag and be able to click search to get me all the posts in that tag. This is also an issue for my personal blog. I haven’t been able to search a tag by manually typing it in. I have to put the tag on a post that is COMPLETELY unrelated to the tag just so I can get into it, and then I have to remove the tag from that post after just because I wanted to find it...... it’s a lot of extra work because of a bug that has gone unfixed for a long time. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve wasted having to scroll far down to a miscellaneous post so my followers don’t see a weird tag on an unrelated post, typing the tag on the post so I can click on it, and then deleting the tag from that post after I’ve gotten into the tag. Why is there a manual typing search option for specific blog tags when it doesn’t even work???
Never should have been put back
by Bo 👌🏻 on 2018/12/21 07:31
No app that contained any amount childporn should never be put back up for download. Blocking all “adult” content does not actually solve anything. Tumblr was slacking big time in keeping their users safe and keeping pedophiles and other disgusting people off of their site for years. I have had tumblr for 7 years and have used it about everyday because I love pictures, but no other site that I’ve ever been on can you accidentally run into illegal porn or dead bodies without having to search for it. We have been asking for years that tumblr’s age of use be moved up to 18+ because of the literally mentally damaging images you can accidentally see. not even mentioning that tumblr does nothing when someone under the age of use is on the site and refuse to delete them even though they are breaking the terms of service. banning adult content isn’t keeping the minors on the site safe because they have already been exposed to this stuff since tumblr has never cared enough to properly filter things and remove abusive and illegal content. Tumblr is not and has never been a safe or family friendly site. I was really hoping apple wouldn’t put tumblr back up and I’m honestly disappointed in the morals of both corporations but then again they’re corporations and don’t listen to what their user want so I’m not exactly shocked.
:(
by jo irwin on 2019/04/28 03:19
This app is... frustrating on a good day. When everything seems to be functioning properly, it’s fine but that so rarely happens anymore. So many things go wrong on any given day, it’s hard to keep track. Right now, asks seem to be busted for me and several others. We’ve gone through batches of “test asks” to see if they’re sending and receiving properly, after noticing a lack in our normal ask activity. I’ve also noticed a lot of trouble with posts disappearing after hitting send, not postings at all, connection issues, replies not showing up, and more. Most of this was noticed prior to the update but have shown no improvement after updating. I’ve had numerous issues with the app, especially after the December 2018 update. Please please please take your user base into account in a more interactive and comprehensive way. I’m sure you’re doing your best, but I think it’s time to re-evaluate your tactics. I’ve seen nothing but complaints about user interface for years now (to the point where it’s become a sarcastic joke) and a huge lack of addressing those issues from staff. I can’t see myself not using the app for good, just bc it’s where so much of my own following and work is. But I do frequent it less and less, due to these issues. So only two stars for now. Hoping to bump it up in the future.
Get rid of the pedos and the nazis instead of ruining the site
by TumblrIsDead on 2018/12/18 05:22
Via tumblrs new guidelines they’ve yet again screwed over their audience and sent thousands of their users scattered to the winds most of them going onto twitter instead of tumblr. You screwed up the site majorly by blindsiding and censoring the majority of tumblr. You let loose bots on the site that still haven’t been fixed. Allowed bigotry and racists to be allowed to roam free and haven’t done a thing about nazis that are still allowed to post genocidal rhetoric without shame. The main reason that tumblr was taken off of the App Store was because you being the staff of tumblr allowed pedophiles to run rampant and scar minors on the site, polluting the waters of every inch of almost every fan base. Instead of trying to react that problem rationally the staff of tumblr decided to ban all nsfw art on tumblr alienating a large portion of their users and striking down on sex workers who use this site to gain a following on a day that was supposed to represent a day against exactly this. I have been on this site for over 3+ years and have migrated to twitter with many of my followers and people who I follow because you people won’t get your crap together and start truly giving a crap about the people involve themselves on this app. Until you, meaning staff and higher ups, get your self straightened out- good riddance.
Uncaring staff
by Idkhere'saname on 2018/12/25 07:45
The staff of Tumblr have recently rolled out the censorship of any posts flagged as explicit. While this would be a great way to stop p*dophiliac content, n*zis, and anything else potentially harmful for other users, the system is broken and till this day (december 24th, 2018) continues to flag and censor posts that do not meet the nsfw requirement for being taken out of public viewing. Instead of content that could harm other users, the system-which is completely run by a simple bot not meant to handle this complicated of a task-instead flags posts that fit within the new guidelines. All over the site and app pictures, artwork, text posts, etc have been wrongly censored despite having saw content. Thousands of complaints have gone to staff about this issue, yet they have done nothing to help the user base on Tumblr. This has ended up hurting many people on the site. People now rely on websites to promote their online services-for example, an artist taking commissions to pay for bills-and have been receiving less and less exposure/traffic due to this flagging system hiding their content for others to see. Thousands of people have fled to other websites to find work due to their loss of the ability to rely on Tumblr as a means of exposure. Staff has done nothing to help us with the issues this new bot has been causing.
Suggested posts, Too many porn bots
by apmanda on 2018/08/22 13:35
I actually like this app for the most part, but they keep adding new features that suggest posts and blogs to you and while I like the IDEA of that, it’s SUPER ANNOYING to have that in my feed. I HATE THAT. And I also HATE having peoples posts pushed to the top of my feed because I may have “missed them.” It often screws with the chronology of some of the things I follow. Please remove the features from the feed and STOP BRINGING THEM BACK IN NEW WAYS, like, I’m not stupid, okay? Also, I get that this is probably a site problem, not specifically an app problem, but the porn and spam bots are a huge turn off for me. One thing that would make me more okay with it is if you could block blogs w/out having to go to them, like if I could just swipe and block them in my notifications, that’d be great. You may be able to do this on the computer, but I don’t use Tumblr on the PC enough to look. Other than that, I’ve enjoyed this app immensely. I don’t think it’s issues are really any worse than some other apps like instagram and Facebook especially. I have plenty of glitchy problems on BOTH of those apps just as much, so I’m not sure why people expect this one to be perfect when it’s handling much larger and more variant files. Weird.
Borderline Unusable
by Landofthebri on 2017/12/04 04:03
After the most recent &#34;best stuff first&#34; update the app functionality has plummeted. As others have mentioned, no matter how good my internet connection is and even when my other apps are loading just fine, Tumblr can&#39;t seem to load anywhere near the pace that it used to. On top of that, I&#39;m constantly having an issue where as I scroll it&#39;ll suddenly freeze. Waiting a few seconds for it to catch up again is fine but I&#39;ve waited upwards of a minute before. Again, the app has always had glitches and I&#39;ve put up with it for the most part but these issues make the app incredibly frustrating to use. Also, it&#39;s great that they included a switch for you to turn the &#34;best stuff first&#34; off so you can scroll chronologically. What&#39;s not great is that the button doesn&#39;t actually work. Any time I refresh my dash it goes back to the algorithmic organization, and the only way to get it to be chrono again is to close out of the app completely. There&#39;s so many more glitches: User&#39;s icons switching, notification alert not going away, can only view the first nine of the top ten trending topics, clicking on someone&#39;s chat sometimes takes me to someone else&#39;s chat, etc etc I could go on. Staff, some glitches are to be expected. Whatever. But this app is becoming borderline unusable.
As of yesterday...
by PxlatedTraveler on 2017/10/25 15:19
I have a constant grey message box at the bottom saying “Hmm...try again?” And that I should log out and back in if it keeps happening. So I log out and back in, and it’ll work...until I leave the app and come back, the it happens again, and it’s a huge pain to have to keep logging back in. Stuff won’t really update while this message box is running. Also, the app is still eating my photo posts. Last time I tried was before this grey-box issue. Two days ago. Also, I do not like my activity notifications stacking. In particular, the reblog ones. I don’t mind the likes being stacked. But I liked clicking on individual reblog to look at tags. Some people communicate via tags. Granted, I could just visit the post itself, but that has become a pain now too - where I used to just be able to view everything I wanted from my activity section, now I have to jump out and hunt the post down through my profile. God forbid I’m not looking for an old post. To be honest, right now it’s hard to double check on feature with that grey message box saying I have to log out and back in constantly. Nothing refreshes. Edit: logging out and back in does nothing for me after all. App currently does nothing for me except show me pop-up notifications (clicking into then shows a “no-post-here” page).
Take off the safe mode!!!! 😡😡😡
by Suoerlilyapplover on 2017/09/26 11:08
I have been using the Tumblr app for over 2 years. I actually was a fan of the major update that happened because I believe it made everything much more organized. Unfortunately I absolutely despise the latest update that moved the safe search to the settings. What&#39;s the point?!? The icon in the major update that let you press on it to show unfiltered posts and pictures and not show those posts and pictures was perfect. It was on the side, so it was not in the way of anything and worked perfectly. So why in the world did you get rid of it!?!?! The reason why I&#39;m so mad at this in the first place is because certain things don&#39;t show in &#34;safe mode.&#34; For example, the search &#34;soft beige&#34;, which is not an inappropriate search at all, doesn&#39;t let me see any pictures because of this &#34;safe mode.&#34; And I can&#39;t see any of these pictures by going into setting anyway because for some reason I have to be 18?!?! So you&#39;re telling me a 17 year old (my age) can&#39;t see pictures of a color because of this safe mode feature?!?!? This wouldn&#39;t be a problem if that icon was back. If you don&#39;t want to lose users because I know A LOT of other people probably have the same concerns as me. Return safe mode the way it used to be, an icon that you could press. Sincerely, An ex-Tumblr user
Staff Need to Fix Problems
by Emii O on 2018/12/22 19:44
Tumblr has been my go to social media for years. It’s got great content, a solid community, and a platform like no other. Unfortunately, however, every time there seems to be a problem with the software or people breaking community guidelines-staff again and again fail to address it in a way that is effective. An example of this is the newest update. For a while there had been issues with tumblr allowing child p0rnography, and there were countless “porn bots” (fake tumbler accounts trying to sell porn and spread virtual viruses, etc.). To fix this problem it was decided at all nudity and specifically female nudity will be banned. This is a big issue for veteran users, as they wanted the illegal and annoying porn targeted. Tumblr is one of the only platforms that allow female and male nipples to be shown without being flagged as in appropriate-something that was important to many of its activist users who believe that female nudity shown should be help to the same standards as appropriate male nudity (if guys can post photos shirtless, why can’t girls?). The new changes have been very disappointing, and rating this app low is the only protest that the staff of tumblr will care about since it is in the public eye. I hope our voices are heard, and the platform we all love is properly taken care of.
The staff who runs tumblr are idiots
by Amberh27 on 2018/12/19 14:10
The worst, most non-communicative staff I&#39;ve seen for any site. They will ignore any and all problems with the site, unless it threatens their revenue, then they&#39;ll &#34;fix&#34; it with the laziest and most destructive possible solution. For example: instead of hiring actual moderators or making even slightly competent bots, to combat the issues with users who used tumblr to share cp, they decided instead to ban any and all NSFW content, causing adult content creators and artists to lose revenue, as many used the site for their work. Their bots targeted any posts that it thought had NSFW content, that actually ended up not being NSFW at all, and shadowbanning people who they didn&#39;t like. While this all was happening, nearly their entire user base revolted against their &#34;Safer&#34; Tumblr (even though after their banning spree, porn bots and nazi blogs are still rampant on the site), what did the staff do? Nothing. No change to the policy, no &#34;lol jk&#34;, not even a single word addressing the problems people had with the policy or the thousands of creators it&#39;s screwing out of a job because they didn&#39;t feel like coming up with an actual solution. Just another cog in the internet censorship machine. (Also the app and website are filled to the brim with bugs that the staff will never fix it so just deal with it I guess)
Is Tumblr a Good App?
by Elastas on 2019/01/05 02:33
Once. Amidst all the screaming and can&#39;t evens it was a nice app. It did what it was supposed to do. You could run multiple blogs for different purposes and share things with your friends. Then they said they were &#34;making tumblr a safe place for all audiences&#34;. Which it was as long as the artists and bloggers, the dedicated users who usually did, tagged their content to keep the roadstops clearly marked. Parental supervision belongs to the parents. Your image was already tarnished by the cesspool of thought-police and angry hormonal 16 year olds taking to the site to voice their displeasure with different opinions. But it still persisted because of a loyal fanbase that liked your product. Dumping it with indiscriminate bot bleach and mocking the very people who made you who you are today without addressing or scrubbing the real issues was the worst thing you could ever do regardless of how functional a product it is. A site isn&#39;t given worth based on how it was built or what the automated programs are said to do for the ones who made it. It is from the ones who visit, contribute, and actively use the site. I hope everyone stops using it period and reminds you all of what that meant. Yahoo wasted their money on you. I don&#39;t recommend this app based on the company&#39;s treatment of its users.
I don’t understand why
by libby orr on 2020/01/18 05:51
I downloaded it for certain reasons, my friend does a lot of art on there. He sells it and show off his skills. So reason I made an account last year(a few months ago, it’s January so like around six or 4 months ago), first time ever making an account. I ended up deleting it because I never really got on it, I was busy and it was taking up room. So I tried creating a new account today said my email was in use, fine use another I have like six. All of them were in use! I’ve NEVER had it before until literally a few months ago(“last year”)! So when I try to SIGN IN it say NO ACCOUNT WITH THIS EMAIL!!! What the hell is going on?? I do not understand??? I just wanted to look at peoples art and an article that was on twitter😭😭😭 I’m so confused it keeps doing this I deleted it again and I’m gonna try to reinstall this is not what I was hoping for. I’m sorry I’m having issues trying to sign in. Also it does nothing when I say I forgot password, it just takes me back to the sign in screen when I click the email it sends me. Then once again says my email has no account on there.I kinda don’t wanna keep doing this...it’s almost 12am 😞 but at least my only job is to clean the house while my fiancé goes to work at 8 am tomorrow soon to be today🥺😅
A terribly coded and moderated cesspool of Nazis and racism
by Mechromage on 2018/12/28 03:33
After being removed from the App Store for child pornography, tumblr staff has decided to moderate their platform for the first time by banning all nsfw content. However, “nsfw” content is automatically flagged with a terrible coded and ineffective bot that blocks anything from pictures of Garfield to posts made by the official staff themselves. Meanwhile, pornbots are still rampant on the site and staff has made no attempt to moderate hate speech and extremism despite YEARS of complaint. It is easier to find Nazis on tumblr than it is to find a picture of a black person. Tumblr doesn’t care or listen to their user base while actively promoting racism, extremism, and genocide. If somehow that still appeals to you, tumblr entirely fails to function as a social media app. There are no notifications when you receive messages, images rarely load on mobile (god forbid gifs), and even on a high-speed WiFi connection the embedded video player fails to load more than half the time. Random posts are incorrectly flagged and blocked for pornographic content, including posts from staff itself. Developers regularly put out buggy, nonfunctional updates, and without a doubt the app is in a less functional state than it was three years ago.
Horrible Management
by EventideReverie on 2018/12/29 20:36
This website does not care about its userbase—only its own image. When the website gives examples of allowed content that could be viewed as explicit (such as breastfeeding women, ladies protesting while topless, and surgery images), it flagged the examples on the staff’s own posts on the matter. Preferring to flag first and then examine later, as sort of ‘guilty until proven innocent’ policy on adult content. At one point, you could bypass the bots searching for adult content from pornbots by tagging your posts with #sfw, and the pornbots swiftly took to doing so to avoid getting taken down. They briefly censored some of the minor tags with adult content but I have other, more popular tags, avoid being locked away from view even when those tags had way more pornographic content to sfw content than the censored tags. Everything I have said so far is factual, and I have seen it happen. I am not exaggerating or lying. They’ll keep actual adults from seeing adult content (While the concern for children bypassing those restrictions is valid, outright keeping anyone from seeing adult content is ridiculous) and censor nsfw accounts but they won’t ban obvious white nationalists hurling slurs around or ban harassing stalkers even when presented with multiple points of evidence of said harassment and stalking.
The new guidelines are transphobic
by e.zra on 2018/12/17 04:42
Exactly what the title says. By banning certain images based on a “female presenting nipple” basically staff get to decide who is a woman and who isn’t. This is one of the few sites where there is so much body positivity to all different types of bodies. This app is used as a source for so many sex workers who depend on their clients. By creating the NSFW ban, they are putting trans sex workers out of work. This isn’t just some ban, to a lot of people, these are their lives. The new guidelines say classical nude statues will not be banned, which translates to only white ppl get to naked? When we create accounts and agree to the 18+ age limit, we are signing up for all of these things. Don’t change the whole app for the sake of making it “child friendly” this new update isn’t bettering the app in any way, it’s destroying the community tumblr has built. The only community that is left now are all the bloggers rallying to protest and leave. If tumblr really wants to make itself better and safer for the community, start flagging the Nazis and pedophiles, don’t create rules with underlying racism and transphobia. These guidelines need to change, and this is NOT the change it needs. And until it does change in the way the tumblr community (not staff, the ACTUAL community) needs it to, do not get this app.
Tumblr features fresh original youthful innovative content
by SuddenSparkles on 2018/12/22 12:10
I’m not a tech nerd so my comments in this review are limited to content. Also I’m not on Tumblr that much but sometimes I wish to escape from the repetitive content found on other platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. Facebook I rarely use. I think the market niche of a social media application is important but that trying to be all things to all people can be a mistake (and not just online but in real life (#IRL) too!) and so I applaud Tumblr for outlining its community standards policy in a way that is full disclosure and not being sly about things like the other better-known entities. I’m still learning the app but the content is largely dependent on who you follow. If you want quality content choose your “friends” wisely! There’s a great deal of quality but one of the greatest concerns it seems to me is quality control and artistic rights ownership of content and protection. I’m not sure that’s an issue that is easily addressed here but it’s the ultimate Roman Colosseum in many ways. Throw out the content and watch it get “chewed up.”
Awful, don't get it please
by Jules211111111111110 on 2017/09/15 03:54
I&#39;ve been using this stupid website for 6 years and got the app on my phone some years ago and it&#39;s been a pain ever since david karp left and the xkit guy was run off. audios were horrible video playing has generally been horrible. nothing ever loads in a timely fashion even when there&#39;s full wifi bars. sometimes when i quick reblog things on my dash, the silhouette of my blog will stay there while i scroll, once this starts there&#39;s no end. the silhouettes keep appearing until the stupid app crashes and then you can&#39;t use it until tomorrow, even if you restart your phone. stupid app, stupid web developers, shame on you for fixing things that don&#39;t need fixing and ignoring ALL of the numerous bugs you have. Edit: with the latest update it keeps freezing once u scroll through every 5 posts or so and if you leave the app it will freeze, if u decide you want to reopen the app and use it like any normal person would, TOO BAD it won&#39;t open, will freeze your phone, then crash. The only way I have seen to fix this problem is to uninstall the app and reinstall, every single time i would like to enjoy these stupid memes. Where&#39;s the xkit guy? does tumblr staff actually exist??? why is this so hard for yahoo to figure out?? We may never know
It's the Hotel California of social media
by Ashton Claire on 2018/12/18 05:41
There&#39;s many reasons you could find Not to get this app/make an account. From the porn bots who put random links on your posts about Spider-Man to the way you never know if it&#39;s actually gonna load anything or delete your account for any given reason staff can find. But biggest thing to note or advice on is I give on this would have to be to run. Hit that back button. Swing left. Hit the arrow. Leave this page because when you join Tumblr you never leave. Forget anything good about Tumblr and just save yourself. I&#39;ve been on it for almost a decade and I yet can&#39;t get myself to delete my account or even log out on my phone. Please at least know that you are selling your soul to staff and I&#39;ve never seen anyone truly leave. It&#39;s fun to see people grow and change with you though. Go through movie franchise and T.V shows progression together. See funny videos and news from around the world. No matter who you are, you will find your people. You will find your place on here. Maybe that&#39;s why its so hard to leave.
Great stuff. Horrible app.
by JosieFFFF on 2018/07/20 00:35
I honestly LOVE Tumblr. It&#39;s so much fun and there&#39;s so much to see. But this app is driving me insane. It&#39;s actually made me cry more than once. I have had this app for many years and it has always crashed. And I don&#39;t mean every once in a while you&#39;re pretty much crashes about 20 to 30 times a day for me. Making it pretty much impossible to see anything. I try to update to see if that helps and it never ever helps. I don&#39;t think I can be on Tumblr for more than 20 minutes without it crashing. Sometimes the worst part is ample today I was on it for two minutes and it crashed I went back on there and then after about five minutes I crashed again and then minutes without it crashing. Sometimes the worst part is ample today I was on it for two minutes and it crashed I went back on there and then after about five minutes I crashed again. It&#39;s super frustrating when I&#39;m looking at something or I am in a specific place and then it crashes and then I can&#39;t find where I was before. I honestly love this place and would spend many hours every day on it but since he crashes so much I try to go on it as little as posible.
TONS of problems
by Camy T. on 2019/02/04 19:20
The NSFW ban in December did very little to fix the actual problem that users had with porn bots who are still everywhere on the site. In addition, blogs that post things advocating for Nazism and racism are still allowed on the site yet “female presenting nipples” are not. Tell me how that makes any sense. Not to mention with the NSFW ban they have severely crippled artists who use tumblr to get their art out and gain commissions and now they’ve limited text posts to only 100 word blocks and stopped posts with links from being shown in tags which affects the very large community of fic writers on the site. With these things, they’ve alienated almost every one of their users and made it clear that they care very little about the actual feedback that they receive from said users as evidenced by these new updates and the purely flippant way they address the emails that they receive from users that have very real concerns. As someone who has used the site for years, I’m honestly saddened to say that the way tumblr has been run since yahoo acquired it has made me and many others entertain the idea of simply leaving the site and never looking back. Something needs to be done to fix the site or else they may just run it into the ground themselves.
A frustrating app to use
by Riley Wa on 2018/10/18 22:28
I’ve been a tumblr user for years, both on desktop and with the app. In recent times I&#39;ve found myself using the app much more frequently, but that may be changing. Since the beginning, the app has had an issue where it frequently refreshes itself if you switch between apps, which is maddening if you happened to be reading a particular post or enjoying a particular piece of content just to lose it and have to scroll miles back down to find it again. But another feature that is ruining the experience is the recommended blog posts. There is no option to disable this feature other than to individually ‘X’ out of each post as they appear. Between these posts and the ads (which are understandable, as it’s a free app), most of my dash feels cluttered with content I don’t want to see. If I were interested in these recommended blogs, I would seek out and follow them on my own. If there were a way to disable this feature then it wouldn’t be an issue, but unless that becomes an option in the near future, I anticipate my use of the app will slowly dwindle until I don’t use it at all. And because I rarely use the desktop website, I wonder how much longer before I just delete my account altogether.
New notifications are unusable
by NotoriousNina on 2017/11/21 00:06
I&#39;m a long time tumblr user with two popular blogs. I post mostly text posts without titles. In order to find out which post is getting notes in the new notification I actually have to click through to the user name of someone who has reblogged a post of mine, then scroll until I see something reblogged from me. And that&#39;s assuming they even display usernames correctly - sometimes it shows people who only liked posts under reblogs and I find nothing at all. And it doesn&#39;t even show reblog comments separately!! So if a post gets more than 4 notes there is no way to see comments in your notes. This might seem like a small thing, but being able to see who is interacting with your posts is essential to using this site. Not being able to see when people at reblog comments is especially bad because it prevents conversion, feedback, &amp; interactions. And I have to waste a stupid amount of time just to figure out which of my posts are getting notes. This has removed all the community feel I had and despite still getting notes I basically feel I am screaming into the void now with no simple way to see what my followers are sharing, what they like, or what they&#39;re trying to say back to me.
This version is getting on my nerves.
by Droitzel on 2017/10/27 19:49
It keeps saying that some undefined thing went wrong and that I need to log out, then log back on. Only to treat this iPod as a stranger and tell me that a password reset has been sent to my email. After resetting the password it’s fine until I use another app. I don’t even close out of Tumblr and yet the moment I move to Music and change my song, Tumblr decides to begin the process over again. 13 passwords later, and I’m more than a little ticked off at this point. Please fix. As a separate side note, I can’t be here every day. Because of this, I’m missing who even KNOWS how many pictures, posts, videos, and gifs. Could you start working on a function that shows you what you haven’t seen since the last time you were on? Starting from where you left off and progressing towards stuff released just before you booted up the app? A feature like that would be a godsend. I’d help, but I only had one semester of C++ programming class, I doubt I’d be any help.
Staff can’t correctly fix issues to save their lives
by melancholystarlight on 2018/12/18 22:03
Now, listen. I love Tumblr. I’ve been using it for what feels like forever and it has offered me better, closer communities and jokes and fandoms than I could have hoped for. It’s my online home and I don’t ever want to leave it. But the way staff has been handling the issue of explicit content is extremely poorly executed. Porn bots, pedophiles, and other ridiculously awful things are still rampant on Tumblr; meanwhile, staff’s clever little flagging system is hiding perfectly SFW content from public view (it even flagged the photos that staff themselves used as examples of things that wouldn’t be flagged!), which is damaging to the reach of content creators across the site. Clearly tumblr staff does not know how to identify which problem needs solving, much less come up with an actually effective way to solve it. I’m not leaving Tumblr. Yet. But it cannot be denied that this flagging system is heavily flawed and this change in guidelines is hurting content creators. Also. “Female-presenting (we know you hate this phrase) nipples”? Are you kidding me Tumblr?? You acknowledge us calling out that horrible phrasing and yet you don’t change it at all?
Needs some improvement but not as bad as some people say
by Tombomania on 2018/02/09 15:03
Sometimes when I’m driving I like to get lost.....it’s a process of discovery. This holds true for Tumblr, too. I enjoy popping in to find posts that I might not have requested but that open doors into new possibilities. The app’s random distribution of posts is great in this way. However, for those individuals who want to display their work this is frustrating in that their potential audiences can’t be assured access. Your accent on what’s popular and not new or cutting edge may bring in more viewers but, in doing so, it makes your app no different than FB. Is that what you want because it’s not what many of your longtime subscribers want. One feature I’d like you to add would be Tumblr’s ability to download videos from other sources. When I want to post astronomy info from Space News, for example, the video option is never given. This really limits the amount of information I can share as this subject matter can be very visually oriented.
Tumblr has become a fascist hellscape and the developers couldn’t be prouder
by CyprusTrees on 2019/02/01 19:52
The most recent update is causing people to have seizures and literally die. They’re claiming they’ve made the site more accessible, but they seem to be forgetting that not every disabled person had the same needs. Not that tumblr has actually ever cared about any of its users that aren’t pedophiles or actual Nazis. Tumblr has been deleting people for no reason since before their Dec 17th ban, and they have admitted that when people try to regain access to their accounts. They claim it’s an accident, but let’s be real no one believes that. The recent ban has targeted the disabled and LGBTQ communities whether they admit it or not. This is not the first time the site developers have targeted these communities. They’ve locked the tags for any type of minority group, but they keep the porn tags open and well maintained. They claim that they&#39;re just trying to prevent sex trafficking, yet they keep the blogs that post literal child porn and advocate for the murders of disabled, LGBTQ, Black and Brown people. The developers for the tumblr app and site claim that they’re making the site more enjoyable for everyone, as long as everyone is straight, able bodied, and white.
Still upset
by gravitygemjj on 2019/02/01 05:16
I made a review earlier about how mad and disappointed I am in the NSFW ban—which I’m still upset about, but I’m here to review another issue. Tumblr just changed their color scheme to be a bit darker—which for me isn’t a big deal. HOWEVER, for others it is. Depending on the impairment, people have either gotten either better or worse from these changes. Worse as in some have gotten in the seizure zone. Which is never a good zone. But like I said, some have gotten better. Thing is though, tumblr has once again denied users of choice. It’d be better if they made the change an option so people could choose what they prefer and what is actually healthier for them. Instead of taking care of the real problems—like the literal nazis and white supremacists on this website/app, tumblr changes their shade of blue to a slightly darker shade of blue. Revolutionary. Really. Oh wait, I’m being sarcastic. Ha. So, anyway, I—among MANY users would appreciate it if you got rid of the real problems on this website/app. Your tiny change is not enough and not a step in the right direction. Fix your bugs. Undo the ban. Clean your mess. Give us options. Be considerate. Do better. Start listening to your users—before there’s none of us left.
Staff is terrible, new update is stupid, and everyone is done with the whole app
by 9:!);8:!;$/@!:&.!:&; on 2018/12/20 23:41
The staff are doing a terrible job with the updates and not even fixing anything important! They get rid of unimportant things that hurt people’s livelihoods without even glancing at everything else. They still allow nazis and white supremacist to use the app. They are doing a terrible job and just allowing tumblr to become a joke (seriously, everyone everywhere is making fun of how terrible the app is, even people ON the app). I get it, tumblr is supposed to be the place where you can just put out anything and be accepted and not have to worry about social constructs or anything. You can be as edgy, aesthetic, whatever roots your horn on tumblr. You can find safe communities to talk about your difficulties, being part of the lgbtq+ community, anything. But tumblr still allows perverts, nazis, white supremacists, homophobic people, basically everything terrible, but you won’t allow nsfw. It’s perfectly fine, just make people aware that they have to have a sensitivity thing or warning or something instead of just causing many people to lose their media platforms. They aren’t hiring ANYBODY, but everything I’ve mentioned above, is. Deal with it, now.
Love it just on thing plz check this out creators!
by jammer2frh9l on 2020/01/08 03:03
Hey first thing I wanna say is that it&#39;s a great app very social and If your into art there are Many Many people posting amazing artwork and I think it&#39;s a great way to show things off &amp; ect I would highly recommend trying the app just look for things your intrested in like my personal favorite Art in the search bar and boom there it is I would also like to add that there is so much you can change and adjust things to your liking for instance if you can be visable by searching your name and Ect... There is a bug that I find anoying but not like anyone would even care depending if you post a lot but if you post something and it&#39;s on the bottom it&#39;s hard to remove because it&#39;s not possible to reach the reach an button or it simply moves your screen up and acts like you did not press the delete button 200 times surely this is an easy fix so yea creator would love you if ya can fix that problem!
Really bad
by averysadboi on 2018/12/17 22:38
Ignoring real problems with the app and user base to focus on ad revenue by sweeping anything they would consider nsfw out the door. Nice job blocking many, many innocuous posts, especially those from lgbtq+ communities and for some reason those dealing with chronic illnesses are not allowed to speak. Nobody is foolish enough to think tumblr actually cares about being a better community. If that were the case, you could have started with the rampant bot problem that STILL persists, or maybe the hate groups that are everywhere. Your app is still buggy and broken, just from a technical standpoint instead of a content one. It crashes frequently, for all manner of reasons. Sometimes just trying to refresh the home page crashes the entire app. I cannot search tags on my own completely sfw page. The bot deployed to find nsfw images was clearly either completely untrained or minimally trained to detect the nsfw images, as images of text posts were even being flagged despite being sfw. Of course any visual detecting bot is going to have trouble distinguishing, but that’s a lot. Tl;dr come to tumblr where you’ll be banned for a lady nipple, but can receive anonymous death threats on the daily!
Amazing
by BlueHairedGoon on 2020/09/21 17:22
Since all of the reviews are outdated, I figured I would leave a more recent one. Tumblr’s a great app. It’s basically a combination of all the other social media platforms. You can find fanfiction and art and roleplays and anything else you might want in your fandom experience! I have a few personal bones to pick with the app, but nothing horrible. I’d appreciate a better tagging system. And when posts have been deleted by the original poster, they should be deleted off of everyone’s blog, the same with deactivated blogs; their posts should all be taken down. And you should be able to leave asks with all blogs, or switch which blog is your main. But overall, this app has helped me so much. I’ve been on it for a year and a half now, and I’ve met so many lovely people and found so much amazing content that I wouldn’t have had I not joined Tumblr. I definitely recommend the app to anyone who wants more content and a bigger community!
Take this stupid app down; it’s useless to us now.
by the-nia16 on 2018/12/19 19:16
I can’t begin to describe to you how disappointed and sickened I am by what was done to this platform. Not only have you destroyed something that has become a safe place for many groups that desperately needed it, you have also managed to alienate a majority of your users by choosing an app over the wants and desires of the people who would be using the app. Did it ever occur to any of you that, just maybe, we aren’t the issue and that you should have tried to attack the actual problem instead of taking this ridiculous “no tolerance” stance? Why should the majority be punished for the actions of the minority? And the issue is your own fault! If you were actually able to find a bot that worked, it would never have come to this. Hell, you still can’t make a bot that works considering how many porn blogs that are still fully accessible, but my blog has been flagged for content despite having no explicit media of any kind. I post pictures of my dogs, and that’s pretty much it. So tell me, what exactly did your new rules achieve? I hope your platform crashes and burns just so you understand that we are far more important than having an app in App Store.
Used to be good
by madsgrace17 on 2020/05/15 05:49
when i first downloaded this app, i always felt very welcome and felt more like it was a place for people to vent and find other people with similar interests/struggles or really anything in common. now within the past month, the account i had gained a decent following on had been deleted because “it went against the guidelines”. i’m not mad about why it was deleted but rather how. i only received two emails about the situation; one about one of my posts being taken down and then the final one saying that my account was terminated. there was no warning or a period for me to go in and fix my account before they deleted it. now whenever i try to go into the app, it just says a bunch of network errors and won’t even let me smash my nonexistent account. so now i’m stuck on this error page unless i wanna completely change my email and password to a different account. i definitely would not suggest going on here if you want to be open about what you’re going through and post you’re own content that expresses yourself. i used to really like this app and turned to it a lot when going through hard times now i’m sick of this bull crap. thanks for nothing Tumblr.
Too many bugs, not worth your time!!
by Shadow3013 on 2019/11/29 17:53
This app is way too buggy. I use it on my iPad and for some reason every time I make a photo or video larger it automatically rotates the screen from landscape to portrait EVERY SINGLE TIME which is very frustrating. And what makes no sense to me is that an update was just pushed out for the app so this problem should’ve been solved by now. Also not to mention when you’re scrolling the avatar doesn’t follow the post, meaning you have to go all the way to the top of a post just to see who posted it and when it’s a long post that can be very annoying. Lastly, this porn issue has to be fixed. Every time I come on this app I see that a new porn blog has followed me. If you were gonna stop people from posting NSFW content I think this should be included too. Bottom line is don’t download this app unless your willing to put up with a lot of bugs that can easily be fixed since they were here a year ago!
A Shoddy App with Even Shoddier Staff
by LadyAzirah on 2019/01/02 12:36
I’ve been a member of Tumblr for over 7 years. For all that time, this platform was supposed to be a place of creative freedom. With the implementation of the ban of pornographic material on this website, Tumblr has condemned legitimate sex workers, artists, writers, the LGBTQIA community, the chronically ill, and all others who came for the creative freedom of expression to a place that no longer welcomes any of us. But sure, keep up with leaving the Nazi propagandist and nationalist blogs up and free to spout hate and vitriol against minorities. Do absolutely nothing about the porn bot blog spam. The ban of pornographic content has done nothing but exacerbate the original problems that millions of Tumblr users have complained to the staff about for years. Tumblr has always been a shoddy website from a programming aspect and this app is proof of that. However, they kept a loyal user base of artists because they weren’t censored. Until now. And now, Tumblr is paying for it. Thousands have migrated wholly to Pillowfort, Twitter, and other various social medias in an attempt to regain their loyal followings from their heyday of Tumblr. And if something doesn’t happen to fix this issue, they’ll continue to lose users.
Notification Tab
by acolorblue on 2017/11/09 07:19
The recent update completely messed up the notification tab for me. Every time I open the app to view my notifications something weird happens and they become stuck with a very big chunk of the tab in just a solid white color while the notifications are scrolled up. Basically, to put it in simple words, I can’t view my notifications or scroll. At all. And when I somehow manage to fix it it’s by a series of random steps like switching blogs’ notification tabs, then switching back again. And on top of that, when it actually works it is so much more inefficient than the previous system. I enjoyed looking through my notifications and seeing what my mutuals reblogged and then looking at the tags on what they reblogged but now mutuals and nonmutuals are grouped together under one post so that I can’t easily tell if a mutual reblogged or interacted with my post. And when I click to view the group of people who interacted with my post I can no longer touch the tab and be automatically taken to that post on my mutual’s blog to see their tags. I really dislike this. It feels like necessary features that improved my experience were taken away.
Disappointed
by What the f89 on 2019/07/22 05:30
To be honest, I like the concept of tumblr and I like seeing tumblr posts on Instagram so I gave it a try, but I couldn’t really get the hang of it. It’s one of those sites where I feel like you have to be an OG or really good at navigation. I like all the features on it and SOME of the little remarks when something doesn’t load or show up or anything of that kind. But the main reason I downloaded it was for a comfortable and accepting place for things NSFW type content where I would feel safe viewing. I was unaware about the whole banning thing. What happened to “go nuts, show nuts?” Making Tumblr a better site is what you should’ve done instead of banning a whole community of people. And when I searched up NSFW there was a little snarky remark about not “getting” it and it was kind of a punch to my insecurities, not gonna lie. Because NSFW content is kind of like a type of art and if you kick someone down for liking it then aren’t you a bully? Just saying. And I feel like you should also gain some common sense about banning popular content after losing a ton of your users. Anyways filter better, do better, bring back NSFW. Or die out. We’ll find out soon i guess.
Hasn’t Solved Any Actual Issues
by bismuth83p on 2018/12/21 06:36
I want to preface this by saying I’m not all too bothered with the NSFW ban in theory; there are countless other sites that facilitate NSFW content and its producers, if tumblr doesn’t want it that’s fine. HOWEVER their filtration algorithm for said content is an absolute joke. Users primary issues were NOT with general NSFW content posted by artists, but with the rampant and ridiculous number for porn bots and spam bots on the site. Just as well, the site has major issues with Nazi/white supremacy blogs, as well as CP; NONE of these issues have been addressed or resolved by this new terms update, even though blogs and content such as this poses the most threat to user safety. Furthermore, this new half-assed algorithm they’ve chosen to ‘flag’ NSFW content doesn’t even work. I still see porn bots and spam all over my dashboard, in my inbox, and in my followers list. In fact, it’s even gone up in frequency since this new update. Ultimately this was a slap-dash non-effort on staff’s part to resolve an “issue” that wasn’t even an issue to begin with, and completely ignores the actual safety breaches and user comfortability problems this site has had for years. What a complete managerial mess.
y’all really did this huh
by angel ♡ cake on 2018/12/27 22:05
It’s hilarious to think that a company would do whatever it can to destroy its own user base, but that’s exactly what you’ve done. An NSFW ban can really destroy an artist’s livelihood by not allowing their art to be seen by potential commissioners, and when it affects more than just NSFW art, you know it’s a problem. Your system flags art that is skin colored, even if the art itself doesn’t even feature “female presenting nipples” (and how dumb as that phrase?). Not only are you hiding artists from potential buyers, but you haven’t even gotten rid of the problem areas of tumblr. Literal nazis are using your website, but have not been purged from it in anyway. Bots of all kind plague every corner of your site, but you have done nothing to destroy them. Actual pedophiles have active accounts. How are you claiming to be “family friendly” when people like that are on your site? How can you claim that, when blogs about positivity are marked as NSFW and blogs preaching hate are allowed to roam free? Banning NSFW is not the answer, but it’s what you’ve chosen, because you’re hungry for money. And the ban doesn’t even work, so that really shows how well your team is. Happy holidays ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Tumblr doesn’t really care about its users
by Linzerj on 2018/12/19 02:58
The old system for filtering nsfw content worked fine. When used correctly, the sensitive content toggle and nsfw tag were enough to keep minors from accessing adult content. The problem comes when Tumblr staff refuses to listen to its users about issues such as porn bots and neo-nazis running rampant on this hellsite. Porn bots don’t tag and follow everyone and continuously spam other people’s content, and yet with this ban they’re still here. Furthermore, unfiltered neo-nazi propaganda is arguably just as harmful to minors on the site as other nsfw content, yet tumblr has never made any move to remove these toxic people. The decline of tumblr really began when Yahoo and Verizon took over, so a big 🖕 to you for wanting to keep your site “pure” but not actually listening to users and enacting such a discriminatory and overall stupid ban. People with perfectly SFW blogs and content are being flagged by your imperfect filtering system that you’ve implemented as well, which makes the site even more difficult to use and enjoy. Overall, EVERYONE who uses Tumblr is unhappy with these new policies and how they are being executed. Sincerely, a disgruntled user

I understand what they are trying to do but the way they are going about it is just wrong. Of course child porn is bad and should not be allowed but that does not mean they guys have to start hiding all adult content, that is like putting out a candle with a fire hose; it’s just excessive. What they should do is target the problem at hand and work on improving their algorithm and other methods they use to screen illegal content such as child porn, so it is more effective; that is literally what other social networking sites do and it’s proven to be very effective. By hiding all adult content they are hurting themselves (as I cannot imagine this is having any net positive effect for you guys just based on the public’s reactions over the past month and especially today), upsetting a lot of people, destroying the time and work people have put into developing their blogs, and ruining not only people’s enjoyment but for some a source of income. Overall, they could have gone about solving this problem a better way that could have received approval from the public for improving your security without the backlash of getting rid of one of the characteristics that made Tumblr so great and unique.
