So I just saw this...
https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/3/18123752/tumblr-adult-content-porn-ban-date-explicit-changes-why-safe-mode?fbclid=IwAR3KTgFwIYqz_SX_f1pK1cewgjGSjZ002VvRB9C9ECsKx1jRo03JvB5hZ68

Can anyone tell me if wetting and diaper content will fall under this category. There's no nudity... and um, I'm a little worried given that my Tumblr is nothing but this content...

From what I understand, if Tumblr deems your blog explicit or something against the new rules, they will flag your posts/reblogs with an explicit banner..

Don't remove it by the date everything goes in effect, they will..

I'm pretty sure it will fall under this category. Many diaper tumblrs are moving to instagram or twitter right now. And anyway, we still have fetlife.....and abkingdom......  🙂

Tumblr is owned by Oath Inc... which is owned by Verizon. 

Was anyone really surprised?

So long Tumblr... it was a nice ride, guess I'll go elsewhere for my fetish related content... too bad I also won't see the dozens of non-fetish blogs I also follow.

This actually hurts me because I have bookmarked a ton of omo videos, some of them including nudity.

I really hope they backtrack from this, because this will be ruining tumblr completely.

Doubtful. The parent company could lose tumblr completely and not even notice.

If you scroll through your own blog you can see the posts which Tumblr has flagged as "adult content" with an orange banner at the top of each post. It seems pretty random which of my posts were flagged. I'm guessing there's a computer algorithm flagging posts. None of my text only posts are flagged, even though many of them contain wetting and diapers. Some of my photo/.gif/video posts or reblogs were flagged, but not always the ones I expected. Plenty of my posts with wetting and diapers are not flagged as adult content, but there's no telling if Tumblr will continue to roll out waves of bans as time goes on.

I use Tumblr to checks both porn and non porn or fetish related blogs so I'll keep using it for non fetish related content.  The one blog I used to visit was the yellow safe but ever since they became more poop and scat related I stopped visiting.

A whole bunch of diaper fetish artists are already being censored

It's literally happening. Not a question about whether it will be done or not.

It is.

Only thing to do at this point is to salvage what we can from the site and abandon it like the horrifically-mismanaged mess it always has been.

There's also, you know, OmoOrg, which still gets 300,000± visitors and millions of pageviews a month :confused:

I haven't heard of that one. Pretty sure you're inventing websites now. 😛

I'd be laughing if I wasn't so busy panic-saving everything.

 

I've been preparing for this for almost a decade and I'm still not prepared.

Why would you doubt it? Apple removed Tumblr from the app store b/c of NSFW content. Verizon sells literally millions of Apple products every year. Why would Verizon jeopardize that relationship over something as insignificant as Tumblr. How does this not make sense to you?

What sucks the most, a lot of Tumblr employees are about to lose their jobs as Tumblr users abandon the sinking ship.

I should still have a working script that can archive Tumblr blogs. I can run it on yours Rachel and others before posts are officially removed.

A lot of Tumblr's algorithms right now for flagging content for removal is completely screwed up, but there is a reason for this! Tumblr has stated that any sort of text erotica will not be purged, only visual stuff. Any NSFW text posts, fiction, etc, will still remain intact under the current algorithm, even if all the media is getting attacked, including perfectly SFW blogs.

Any chance you would share the script?

 

Also here's the manual process to save Tumblr vids, with a protip on getting the largest possible video resolution. This is for Firefox but most browsers should be very similar.

  1. First, see if you can just Right-Click > Save As. If you can, just do that and skip the rest. Only certain videos work this way.
  2. Press F12, you should see a whole bunch of stuff pop up at the bottom of the screen (developer tools).
  3. Go to the Inspector tab.
  4. Click the little box with a mouse in it at the very top-left of the developer tools.
  5. Hover over the video, you should see something that says div.vjs-big-playbutton, that means you're on the right spot. Click it.
  6. The Inspector pane will jump to that video in the source. Look a few lines up, you'll see a line starting with "video id" with an arrow next to it. Click the arrow.
  7. A line that starts with "source" will appear under that one. In the line will be an address. Double-click it to select it, right-click, and Copy.
  8. Open a new tab and paste what you just copied in the address bar. Here comes the pro tip
  9. The link might have a number on the end, like this: https://peeprincess76.tumblr.com/video_file/t:GKrD4ks9-Vz57djepMj8Gg/177816255668/tumblr_oyrcnkZyTi1vt7w1d/480 (note the /480). Remove the /480 part. Now hit enter to go to the page.
  10. You're not done yet. You should be on the "HD" version of the video, but it's only 720p. At this point the link will look like this: https://ve.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_oyrcnkZyTi1vt7w1d_720.mp4 (note the _720 on the end). If there is no _720, the video is already at full resolution, just Right-click > Save As and you're done. If there is an _720, remove it and hit enter to go to the address.
  11. The final link will look something like this: https://ve.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_oyrcnkZyTi1vt7w1d.mp4. This is the original resolution of the video. Right-click > Save As. As far as I know there is no way within Tumblr's normal user interface to get this, the only way I've found to get it is this method. In this case, the video is 1080p. Normally the "HD" button on tumblr only gives you 1080p.

EDIT: I found a faster way. At Step 9 just hit enter without removing the /480. The page it takes you to will end in _480. Just remove that and you've got the full resolution. 1 step faster.

This is retarded. I joined tumblr in 2007, same year it launched. Used to hang out in an irc channel several tumblr employees frequented. Sometimes they even listened to my advice. You could say I was among the first power users - both of the original founders followed me on there. My userid was somewhere below 1000.

The culture was totally different back then - it was microblogs run by adults, not otherkin justice warriors and fucking porn. At some point I deleted my original blogs (serious, long-form with 100k and 330k followers respectively) and just started using it as a source of smut on a different account. Now, porn is all they have left and they're gonna remove it. I seriously grieve for what it was, and what it's become.

David Karp is rich now, but what of that $1.1 bilion acquisition now, Yahoo? What utter fools.
