Bad news from tumblr

Tumblr is banning all porn effective December 17. If your tumblr is classified as having adult content, then it's on the chopping block. This year has been a rough one for fetish-friendly sites.

Yeah, I read about that. O_o They're going to lose a huge part of their user base.

Then again, apparently not as much as they'd lose from having their app banned by Apple, I guess.

Sucks major ballsac that they're banning all forms of NSFW content just because a scant few were sharing illegal content. It's not fair to the rest of us who weren't even doing anything wrong. :down: I've deleted my art blog in response... and now trying to find other platforms.

I have actually been considering Twitter! Many artists that I used to follow on another site have migrated there.

At least they have proper Adult cordoning (checking a box) if you will, it has been there for years.

Tumblr had that. Didn't help, apparently.

There was some rumours though on twitter last spring, leading to quick founding of https://switter.at.
Had some major bumps in the beginning though.
