    As stated above, tumblr will be adult content-free by 17th December 2018. Now, for many of you, you may know tumblr as the place to read Ascendance of a Bookworm. But for many more of us, tumblr is known for art, adult art, stories, adult stories, fantasies, adult fantasies and many more. It thrived in that way because tumblr was unregulated, the users regulate themselves. And it has worked so far, without any disturbance from the management.

    But now, all adult contents, or perceived adult contents will be flagged by their automated bots and deleted. Now, this may not be too bad if tumblr gave users a proper time to find an alternative, but it suddenly told us that we have 14 days to remove everything and be clean and proper. Well, we're human, we don't become clean and proper in 14 days.

    What do you think? In my opinion, tumblr is shooting itself in the foot, just like other platforms before that decided that the heavy hand of law rules everything. Perhaps it is time for someone to make tumblr clone using a server in India.

    Personally I associated the site with 4Chan, the change isn't going to make me want to visit the site.

    I feel sorry for the AI that's going to be blamed. I mean, they even explicitly said automated bot XP

    The ones responsible are the ones pushing this change.

    Never use Tumblr before, I doubt the change will affect me.

    But I do agree with sudden change will bring chaos.

    Hmmm, I see Tumblr fading away much like MySpace and Yahoo chatgroups did. They just committed suicide.

    Update: sharesome has been created to replace tumblr and many of the tumblr "artists" are going to migrate there.

    Being unable to enter the apple store due to this problem looks like a bigger problem for them.

    But this "problem" is one of the big reason people are downloading it in the first place.

    My opinion? They are shooting themselves in the leg. Give tumbler a few more years before some other company buys it.

    You know, this opens up a new market for ambitious people who want to start the next great social media platform. If only we had a name...Kinkstarter?
