SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
that is the most beautifully worded thing I’ve ever read
<3 prepare the love gun!
LP Series - Luna (Shared *.sai/*.psd!)
Well sorta kinda Luna.
Hey guys! Seems to have become quite normal for me to take like a month between uploads - sorry about that.
Anyway, I’ve been working on this one for 2 weeks. And not on and off, it was really a lot of work for me. I hit the layer limit of Sai like, 3 times. (256 layers) Had to merge a lot of the working layers, but that’s fine, it’s more “compact” now. haha…it’s still rather close to the layerlimit in it’s final version…
This one was VERY experimental. I tried a lot of things I’ve never drawn before.
So yeah. Next time I might plan beforehand to actually color the whole thing - when I decided to try and color it a bit, it was already too late and it got way complicated.
If you have trouble opening the PSD, here’s a few (mostly free!) apps that can open and edit PSDs.
Whatever you like!
Please grab the psd and let me know how you like it! Give me feedback and I will try to incorporate it into my future works.
I would really like to see what you sequences/ combinations you can come up with. Seriously!
This is pretty amazing! <3
There are too many things about this that are perfect, but
Emlans, my friend, you are good!
I believe today is the last day to vote, so if you haven’t picked any of these young yet deadly ladies, this is your last chance.
Honestly, It doesn’t matter which of them get in cause I like all 4, shoot I only like the female characters anyway, not really a fan of the male’s.
For me this is Win-win-win-win situation too. Also the game’s called skullGirls. One exception confirms the rule and we already have Big band, no need for more males.
As you may or may not know, Lab Zero Games, the studio behind Skullgirls, raised around $825,000 in their crowdfunding campaign to finance the creation of future DLC content, which will be released for free for a limited time. One such incentive for donating was a chance to vote on the 4rd and 5th…
