TumblrYahoo was pretty quiet about this, but as part of the new “community guidelines,” posts from adult flagged blogs will begin to not show up in search engines, on mobile, or even in a damn tag search, unless you are following them beforehand.
That would certainly explain why I have been missing a lot of fanart…
Isolate the blogs, then get rid of them in a year or two? Sounds like it makes sense. Moving away from the perfectly acceptable and no-fuss DON’T USE THE SITE IF YOU AREN’T 18 YOU LITTLE SHITS to LET’S PROTECT AND ADVERTISE TO THE CHILDREN HEY KIDS!
Well, confirmed that neither of my blogs will ever show up in a tumblr tag search again. Can’t search myself. Can’t find slugbox or slugboxcreatureart via any tag. This is pretty upsetting, as it means any SFW or fun fanart will obviously never show up in a search, EVEN if you are already following me. For all intensive purposes, I have no reason to ever tag anything again, since it’s a flag that affects the entirety of my blog.
And this affects many of you all as well, since tumblr/yahoo is capable and already handing out these Adult-Blog tags FOR you. And it’s impossible to “change your ways.” They have not technically censored us. Rather, they have made it essentially impossible for us to find and engage with new connections and people, by completely cutting us off from all forms of discovery.
This means the only way to gain new followers is through offsite linking. Because if a blog likes, replies, or reblogs an adult blog, they are likely to ALSO be an adult blog, and thus unsearchable.
SOoooo basically there’s almost NO point to being on the site. I’m predicting a wipe of all adult content within two years. Either manually or because we’ll all have left. After all, what’s the point if I can’t even get searched or seen?
