I was wondering! I only just saw the "There's nothing here" page...gah, what a shame! Well, you know where to find me--do let me know if you decide to start up another Tumblr!

Yes, I do know where to find you. :)

In fact, I'd urge everyone who isn't already following Miss G. to go do so at theglover.tumblr.com! :yay:

And I know there are more members with Tumblrs. Go ahead and post them here so we've got them all in a central place. (What's yours again, Anthony?)

Actually, lots of Tumblrs get shot down eventually. Lipstixxx for example has been gone for a while now (though an alternative has popped up). It's a risky business to post about popular porn stuff.

I won't tell you, or you might hold it against them. ;) I'll just say that the penultimate complaint came from Southern Charms.

As for everyone wondering if I'll start a new one, I'm afraid I'll have to disappoint you. It took too much time to get this far just to see it disappear in an instant. I just can't afford to invest that much time in it again.

That being said, anyone else is welcome to start one, and - if it's good - I'll be happy to endorse it as the official WWGFA-Tumblr (or Pinterest, or Instagram, or whatever).

Thanks for the shoutout, Rommeltje! I completely understand about not starting up another blog...if only things were different! It was wonderful while it lasted, though! And I know you can spend the formerly-Tumblr energy and time to make this forum even more awesome :)

Also, define "good" :P

Heheh, I only put that in as an escape clause, really. :-P

Your blog is very (very) good, though it would probably be too personal - and too specifically latex oriented - to serve as the official Tumblr for this forum, which is about a wide array of gloves.

I guess it would have to be a reasonably active - and relatively anonymous - Tumblr that features several kinds of gloves. I'm afraid especially that latter part is going to be hard to come by, though.

Perhaps it would make more sense to put links to a couple of recommended Tumblrs at the top of the forum where we used to link to ours. :hmm:

Haha, I gotcha :) And I agree--I think it'll be really comprehensive and informative to put a list of dedicated glove fetish blogs where the WWGFA tumblr link used to be, along with a short description of what each blog posts :)

Very (very) good? Why, thank you :3

I should say thanks, but in that case, rep points are useless if I give no reply.

A forum section where there be links to several blogs and stuff will be appreciated :-)

That's a real shame that the Tumblr's had to come to a close. It was one of the first comprehensive image collections I found really helpful in coming to terms with my glove fetish. Always a great selection of images covering a wide diversity of different glove content.

If you're wanting other glove-related Tumblr's, here's a few I follow:
http://tomatogloves.tumblr.com/ - I'm guessing tomato on these forums runs this Tumblr?
http://fetishglove.tumblr.com/ - Covers women in leather & latex gloves
http://glovealike.tumblr.com/ - Covers women & anime in a variety of gloves
http://janeyegerton.tumblr.com/ - JaneyE on these forums
http://sailorjanec.tumblr.com/ - JaneC09 on these forums ~Rommeltje
http://fetishglover.tumblr.com/ - Covers all sorts of gloves
http://gloveglove.tumblr.com/ - Covers women in a variety of gloves
http://gantsbondage.tumblr.com/ - Covers men wearing leather gloves
http://rubbergloved.tumblr.com/ - Covers men wearing rubber gloves

There also my Tumblr page, which I believe Romm has reblogged from in the past. I've been somewhat quiet recently, but do post every now and then.

(And of course I follow Miss Glover's Tumblr, but that's already been mentioned!)

This is from Miss Glover/DialGforGloves' Tumblr. I unfortunately cannot answer it there anymore, but I'll do it here, in case more people are wondering.

glovedish wrote:Why would they [take down the worldofglovefetish Tumblr]? Couldn't they have given them a warning or just taken that post down?
theglover wrote:From what I gather, the blog had gotten some warnings, and the last warning was probably coupled with the statement that the blog would be taken down for good by the staff a few days from the last warning at most, if that made sense. It seems that there was a sort of 'point of no return' deal going on.

The first copyright claim came in December. What happens is that the posts that get reported are deleted, and you get a warning saying not to do it again and that if you get three strikes within 18(!) months, your blog is terminated.

The second one came six weeks later, in January, and was a rather unfortunate one. The copyright holders tried to contact me first to ask me to take down their photo, but that was right when I was in Rome for a couple of days, so I didn't see it right away. Before I got back, their patience had already run out and they had filed an official complaint as yet.

From that point on it could all be over any second, since the next strike would be the third. I started getting a bit nervous, so I added a disclaimer to the front page of the blog asking copyright holders to contact me first and wait for my reply. I never got any messages, but there weren't any complaints anymore either.

Until this week. On Monday came the copyright claim from Southern Charms. That should've already been it, but instead I got a "FINAL WARNING", allowing me one more strike. It was a short-lived reprieve, however, as SC's complaint turned out to be just the first part of a one-two punch, which was finished the next day, when - by coincidence - I got a complaint about a photo I posted a long time ago. And that was the knock-out.

Part of the problem was probably that I tagged all of our posts very extensively. That made it easy to find particular kinds of pictures for our followers, but also for copyright hunters. If I'd realized that when I started the blog, I'd probably not have tagged pictures with the name of their producers (we had a whole archive of pictures made by Playboy, for example - which wasn't one of the complainers, btw). But by the time I knew that could get us in trouble, we already had an archive of many thousands of pictures. There were bound to be a lot of copyrighted ones in there, just waiting to be found and reported, and it was impossible to weed 'em all out.

It's a huge shame, but I'm afraid it was inevitable that this is how it would eventually end.
