and i direct that saying to you, tumblr nation. the reason? because i’m starting to think everyone here just likes to complain, and that is fucking annoying. you complain about everything and anything, from the site being overloaded to features coming and going. i’m also going to go with that theme and complain about the tumblr nation complaining, but i will also try to offer a couple solutions.
to name a few things that greatly annoy me, i’ll start with the error complaints. tumblr users love to complain when the site is overloaded and ironically, it’s because of the tumblr user base. bandwidth isn’t something that grows on trees, and neither are the servers used for the website. if you really dislike it, either, limit your tumblr use, so there is less strain on the system, or donate some fucking money so that tumblr can upgrade to handle the user influx.
another thing is how much tumblr users love to know who’s following and unfollowing them. yes, i get it, you want to know how popular based on your following number, and a lot of times you enjoy trading follow for follow (sounds like myspace), so when someone unfollows you, you need to make sure you unfollow that bastard in return. WHY? why do you require this boost of confidence, and i love that tumblr doesn’t make it easy for you to figure out who decided they just didn’t like your posts anymore. it’s not necessary and it makes this site operate like it’s supposed to, follow for content, not for popularity and personal gain.
lastly, and probably something that just irks me the most, i dislike how the tumblr nation has spent the past few months complaining about all the spam (ex. lolsummer69 i think it was), but as soon as tumblr combats this, everyone gets upset. i even saw people trying to put together a protest in order to change things back. REALLY? you want them to change it back so you can complain about the spam again? come on people! use your head and think about why you can’t post links in the ask box or maybe why the character limit has been added. if you dislike this, develop a fucking captcha system or some other way of filtering out spam. you’ll quickly find that it’s not easy and i think the tumblr staff solution is pretty solid, and hey, maybe it’s just a quick fix as they are working on another way of stopping the spam, because i guarantee they hate the spam 10 times more than you do.
basically, i dislike that everyone here is so quick to pretty much say the tumblr staff is trying to screw it’s users over. they are doing quite the opposite and it would make no sense for a website to want to make it’s users’ experience less enjoyable. everything they do is to better the site and the user experience. get over yourself for once and accept a small change here and there. also, think about why it might have happened before assuming that the people who run this system just hate you. lastly, if you dislike how things are, either leave or offer a solution.
