autoplay

ATTENTION: If you have an autoplay, if you post any triggering/NSFW content, if you are going on hiatus, or simply need to alert your followers of something, this post is for you.

A lot of people are triggered by sudden noises that they have no idea were coming, or just plain out not being ready for a sound or music. I’ve found a code for your tumblr that you can set to display your own message. I think it’d be really helpful if you have followers afraid of things that will suddenly startle them. You can find the code here. You can also use this for your own alert. Ex: “I am on hiatus!” “This blog contains ____.” This is good for many triggers. Simply copy and paste the code below your <head> and insert your own message into ‘YOUR MESSAGE HERE’. This has been a PSA. Please reblog this so people will know how to make their tumblrs a little safer. It’s not a must, but it’s a nice addition to help your followers feel safer on your blog.

Can’t we all just as a community agree to not have music players set to auto start when someone opens your page? Seriously, it’s very annoying and has honestly caused plenty of people honest pain due to unexpected noise level or just being startled by the suddenness of it. 

As someone whose character is so firmly about music and also as a true music lover I have absolutely nothing against people having music players on their blogs for music that they as the writer like, that their character likes, that reminds them of their fandom, etc. But there’s no reason to have it set to autoplay. Most music players give you the option to have the music play manually and out of respect to your followers, blog visitors, and most importantly your fellow roleplay partners, I think you should have that be the option you employ. 

If you really want to make sure your followers know about the music you’ve selected for your blog, just leave a notice about it at the bottom of your sidebar.

Example:

music player available.
scroll over upper left icon.

Something as simple as that can save people the literal headache of autoplay. 

I’m not attacking people who have the feature enabled, it’s just a thought that’s been coming up a lot for me recently. I thought I’d put it out there.

DEAR TUMBLR USERS WHO HAVE MUSIC PLAYERS ON THEIR BLOGS

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD IN THE WORLD

PLEASE DISABLE AUTOPLAY ON YOUR MUSIC PLAYERS.

I KNOW I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO NEARLY HAS A HEART ATTACK AT SUDDEN NOISES.

SUDDEN, LOUD, AND/OR UNEXPECTED NOISES CAN TRIGGER A LOT OF PEOPLE.

SO PLEASE DISABLE AUTOPLAY. NOT JUST FOR AN EASILY SCARED LITTLE COWARD LIKE ME, BUT FOR ANYONE AND EVERYONE WHO COULD BE HIGHLY TRIGGERED BY SUDDEN AND UNEXPECTED NOISES.

TUMBLR IF I WANT A VIDEO TO POP OUT I WILL POP IT OUT MYSELF

IF I WANT A VIDEO TO PLAY I WILL CLICK PLAY MYSELF

I AM A BIG VULTURE

YOU DONT HAVE TO DO IT FOR ME.

ITS NOT A CONVENIENT FEATURE IF 99% OF THE TIME I’M TRYING TO STOP IT FROM DOING WHAT YOU THINK I WANT IT TO DO.
