>>Tumblr will permanently ban adult content from its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used. The ban includes explicit sexual content and nudity with a few exceptions, the company tells The Verge. The new policy’s announcement comes just days after Tumblr was removed from Apple’s iOS App Store over a child pornography incident, but it extends far beyond that matter alone. “Adult content will no longer be allowed here,” the company flatly stated in a blog post published on Monday.

>>Banned content includes photos, videos, and GIFs of human genitalia, female-presenting nipples, and any media involving sex acts, including illustrations. The exceptions include nude classical statues and political protests that feature nudity. The new guidelines exclude text, so erotica remains permitted. Illustrations and art that feature nudity are still okay — so long as sex acts aren’t depicted — and so are breastfeeding and after-birth photos.

>>After December 17th, any explicit posts will be flagged and deleted by algorithms. For now, Tumblr is emailing users who have posted adult content flagged by algorithms and notifying them that their content will soon be hidden from view. Posts with porn content will be set to private, which will prevent them from being reblogged or shared elsewhere in the Tumblr community.

>>Users have a chance to appeal Tumblr’s decision in situations where they think there’s been a mistake, and the platform admits there’s a chance that the automated tools it’s using could make errors. It’s a process that could take a while, as a bulk of Tumblr posts feature explicit content. Users who run adult blogs can also export their content before the change takes place in order to save what they have.

Bye tumblr. :^)

Press S to shit on their graves ladies and gentlemen.
>>
That is definitely not the way to handle a porn website
>>
>>322316
Problem is that Tumblr thinks they aren't a porn site when what's basically keeping them afloat is all the porn you can find there.
>>
>>322317
When I first heard of tumblr 6 or 7 years ago it was just a blog site. Once people migrated to other sites I guess porn was the only thing left. This certainly is the nail in the coffin for the site though.
>>
Porn is the only redeemable aspect of tumblr, this won't go well.
>>

>When I first heard of tumblr 6 or 7 years ago it was just a blog site

It's not a blog site? I always thought it was basically LiveJournal but for spastic attention whores with poor understandings of science, philosophy, and politics. I know a lot of webcomics use it too, but that's often the same thing.
>>
>>322332
I can't tell if your question is rhetorical or not. Anyway the first time I saw someone on Tumblr was back in like 2011 or 2012 in my Community College library. Funnily enough it was a black dude and not a blue haired feminist.
>>
Reminder: Tumblr is part of Yahoo, and Yahoo is now part of Verizon. They have all the reason to ban people from using tumblr for what they're currently being used even if it mean getting rid of all its users.

Good...

Now maybe these otherkin asswipes and sexually frustrated fatasses can get a life and stop "Re-blogging".
>>
It's really difficult to see how expelling fandoms from a site made entirely of SJWs and fandoms will improve the site or make it more popular in pretty much any way.
>>
>>322343
Well that's obviously not their goal to make the site more popular.
>>
>>322328
I'm pretty sure porn was on there from the start honestly. You can have blogs about porn and you can also have blogs with pornographic images on them.

>>322336
They also have all the reason in the world not to, given that this is basically going to kill whatever small amount of profitability tumblr ever had.
>>
>>322348
They care more about themselves than what they own. Whether that's justified is another separate question
>>
Maybe they're trying to rebrand Tumblr into a serious social media player instead of being that one place where all the underaged girls, deranged fans and SJWs hang out.
>>
>>322351
>Verizon, Yahoo
>Serious social media player
Yeah, that would be really "serious"
>>
>>322342
they’ll just come back here, the other strange corner of the internet
>>
>>322351
>>322352
tumblr has very successfully made itself a big player by marketting towards a specific niche; it’s famous enough to have their own subculture and stereotype, much like 4chan and reddit
by pretty much kicking out half the site, the users aren’t going to evaporate, they will just migrate to other sites.
It’s not going to work. It took a long time for them to cultivate that corner of the net, and it’s not easy to build it back up.
>>
>>322334
>I can't tell if your question is rhetorical or not.

Not rhetorical, I don't know enough about tumblr to know if my impression of it is accurate or not. That it's apparently full of porn was news to me.
>>
>>322354
Except they're not making money from tumblr now despite the size of the user base in the niche they occupy. And then given corporate culture of Verizon and corporate culture if Yahoo, I very much doubt whether they care about any niche they currently occupies instead of trying to become a mediocre mass market product.
>>
Twitter, pixiv, and Newgrounds are already picking up the slack of porn artists. Tumblr will be reduced to the echochamber it's been marketed for the last years.
>>
Wtf is tumblr

That is some terrible damage control, this will effectively kill tumblr, only psychotic leftists and trannies will be left.
>>
>>322400
At least I have one fellow compatriot.

Don’t assume everybody on this site is a loser based on my post.
>>
>>322314
My sister has a tumblr, and her birthday is Dec 17. What a series of events.
>>
>>322365
Yeah but dude? This isn't going to help them to make money. The porn was the reason why their website came close to being profitable.
>>
>>322383
newgrounds is probably the best bet
>>
>>322623
does she post porn?
>>
>>322645
Cut the cost when you can't profit from it
>>
>>322314
>automated tools it’s using could make errors

they can recognize tits even if they're in the middle of a gif? how that works?
>>
>>322354
The main problem wasn't porn or even SJWs by themselves, but the fact that Tumblr had a very real child porn (not lolicon or whatever, actual cheese pizza) problem and they were too lazy to do anything about it for years. Now Apple and Google have finally caught wind of it and don't want anything to do with that shit, and now the people who run the site are in a blind panic.
>>
>>322679
>Actual child porn
How can you tell? The incident is caused by Apple removing their apps, and as you know about Apple, they would remove apps for the reason of child porn even if those content are just fake drawings.
Also Google didn't do anything
>>
>>322682
Legally, any sexual photo of someone under legal age is child porn. That means if a 16-year-old girl decides to post her bobs and vagene on tumblr, she's distributing child pornography.
>>
>>322684
That's photo of real person. But Apple also target things that are not photo and not of real person.
>>
>>322682
>Caused by Apple
It wasn't, Verizon was planning this beforehand. The app store thing just moved it ahead.
> https://www.vox.com/the-goods/2018/12/4/18126112/tumblr-porn-ban-verizon-ad-goals-sex-work-fandom
> But a former staff engineer, who recently left Tumblr and asked to remain anonymous for professional reasons, tells Vox that the NSFW ban was “in the works for about six months as an official project,” adding that it was given additional resources and named “Project X” in September, shortly before it was announced to the rest of the company at an all-hands meeting. “[The NSFW ban] was going to happen anyway,” the former engineer told me. “Verizon pushed it out the door after the child pornography thing and made the deadline sooner,” but the real problem was always that Verizon couldn’t sell ads next to porn.

Bonus:
>Two former Tumblr employees said they were alarmed when Khalaf chose Black Lives Matter as an example of a community that the company should focus on converting into Yahoo media consumers. One told The Verge, “Simon explicitly said that Black Lives Matter was an opportunity to [make] a ton of money.”

So, just like 4chan

Nice logic.

Anon c'mon
>>
Why would anyone in their right mind look at illegal shit on tumblr? Surprised they aren't all arrested.
>>
>>322706
Most of it is unlisted on random accounts you can just stumble into by clicking around, the burden lay on tumblr and the uploaders, why should anyone but them get arrested when tumblr is failing to do what every other platform manages ie policing the content and when the offender is the uploader?
>>
So there is a pettition to make them recind their decision. They reached almost half a million in two fucking days. Jesus people want to keep their porn.

Heres the link to it too.

It doesn't matter because Verizon, like hiro, wants the ads bucks. Unless you see a mad exodus from Tumblr, nothing will happen.

BRB, saving every breast implant picture I can find on the accounts that didn't already delete themselves.

Probably by applying the algorithm to each frame. Interspliced pr0n when? By this I mean a single Pornographic image(eg. Tits) spread across various frames[each frame containing a part of the intended image and random noise to make it harder for bots), letting the mind and the illusion of succeeding images fill in the blanks.

Feels like 4chan could've had this future in some alternate reality. I remember when tumblr started vaguely trying to clean their shit up. Before then it was kind of a more feminine version of 4chan. Like gaia or livejournal before. Kinda just a wildly unmoderated corner of the web for folks to be horny and weird on. Then they tried cleaning it up to be sold off in the future. 4chan just kept it dirty and got dirtier. Now we all just accept that 4chan will never be that profitable, all potential buyers know it can't be. Plus the porn+pol combo are what are now sectioned away from 4chan.

How the internet communities are dealing with porn and advertising and profits is interesting. It's like any place can only make money either off of the community or the porn the community watches but never both.
>>
>>322951
Verizon stock has been crumbling ever since the decision, and a mad exodus from Tumblr is quite likely in this respect as both rightists and leftists see the decision as a travesty. Tumblr is two things, a political soapbox and a porn site. They've thrown away the second and the first is crumbling alongside it as it does when open censorship becomes the rule.

What's 4chan? I only post on 4channel.

delicious to watch

The funniest part of all this is that motherfucking newgrounds is going to take up some of the slack here. l oh fucking l

>>322992
Quiet you, we already have plenty of retardation and stupidity coming from people with stupid amounts of money and credibility in the real world. We don't need it in the autism/fapping den too.
>>
>>322982
The mad exodus is already underway dude.

The question is where to go as once mainstream places tighten their grip on nsfw stuff? even hosts are not allowing anything slightly controversial.
As such, the answer is the usual: if you want to do something, do it yourself. So I am: https://xefig.com

>banning the only reason 99% of people even bother to visit tumblr
Great idea, whatever could go wrong?!
>>
>>322712
But do they want to PAY for PORN?
Tumblr is deporting NSFW users to make room for user who will make them money & not get them arrested for child porn. The Tumblr Refugee Caravan will Migrate to newgrounds & porn hub.

>>Two former Tumblr employees told The Verge, “Simon explicitly said that Black Lives Matter was an opportunity to [make] a ton of money.”

It's Affinity Scams, where the goal is to get a community to promote your products or services for you. Sometimes these are like Herbal Life (an MLM pyramid) that is 90% Women. When ever I hear "extreme shortages of women" I have to look around to see all the scam STEM women only training, with claims high pay for easy work. Here's better example of what to look for: https://youtu.be/k0Cih7Ut93g

Is there a way to mass save images from people's tumblrs? I want to farm some porn ones but all the scripts are buggy, or you have to pay for the apps or are malware.
