I just wanted to say thank you for your art. It keeps me going strong. Your art has helped me discover that I am Non binary. So thank you. :)

that’s a seriously amazing feat - i honestly feel so proud of you, you are amazing 

i feel privileged that my art has even had the smallest impact in that realisation - it really is an honour to hear this story!! 

i’m proud of everyone who is trans. i am proud of all of u, struggling, or secure in your identity, closeted or out, afraid or bold or anywhere in between i’m literally proud of u all. esp u!!

you’re very welcome and thank you for crediting my art as your icon properly!! ppl sometimes don’t and it just aaaaaaa bugs me so much

Okay so from what I can tell, this is Tumblr’s situation right now.

About Messaging:

  • Messaging is out, but only to a handful of people. Those people then must message another person in order for the other person to get messaging. Like some kind of flu or some shit, and no one is vaccinated.
  • However, one blog can only instant message 50 people per day. As in, only 50 conversations can be started (they can then keep talking) per day. Therefore, for each blog that started out has 50 people they can “infect”, and those 50 people have 50 people to message, on and on.
  • Therefore, if you get messaging it’s best for the community if you start messages with people who don’t have it yet. Even if you don’t want to talk with them, just to give them the update.
  • When you do get the update from the person who messaged or “infected” you, there will be a jump scare with balloons and confetti, so be aware. I’m sorry Tumblr hates disabled people. I’m not sure if there’s a noise to go with it.

About Replies:

  • Replies are supposedly coming back after they are “fixed”. I think they got a huge backlash from us, and decided to bring them back.
  • There is no defined timeframe for when they will be back, and only David Karp seems to be saying they will be back. @support seemed vaguely confused about it and specifically mentioned that Karp was the one saying that they will bring back replies.

About Fanmail/Asks:

  • Asks will be staying in the entirety. The ask system will not be changed. 
  • Fanmail will be deleted. They will take away fanmail within the next couple of weeks, assumedly when they think messaging will have “spread”
  • Fanmail chains that are already going (as in, fanmail in your inbox) can still be replied to and sent. You just can’t start a new fanmail by going to someone’s page and clicking the fanmail button.

Please spread this so that everyone knows what’s up!

Sources: @staff blog, @support blog, and multiple blogs who have messaging and have been posting about it with screencaps.

EDIT: I’ve been made aware of 2 more things to add:

  • In a couple of weeks, (probs when they get rid of fanmail) everyone will have messaging. So Unfortunately, we will still be plagued by Spam bots. At least they can only do 50 a day.
  • Also there is no noise when you get the little confetti-balloon update. Awesome!

ATTENTION: There is malware that may compromise your Tumblr account.

I just got two fanmails in a row from people I don’t know with the following message: 

Hi there Darling! For summer job I am working in a employment company. I have to create a paperwork about young people careers in US… May You please enter your dream career, hit continue & put your e mail there? This will be an empirical part of the statistical survey for my work and its totally anonymous! :) Site url is under the recent reblog on my blog. You could not imagine how useful it is to finish this paperwork! :) Then I would enjoy my summer :) Thanks a lot! :)

The opening line can vary from “dear” to “darling” to any number of polite greetings.

I strongly advise you NOT to click or enter anything. Whatever it is looks like it’s phishing or doing something to people’s accounts to make them spam this message around. If you did what it said, change your Tumblr password immediately because your account might be compromised.

REBLOG THIS IMMEDIATELY SO PEOPLE KNOW.

staff needs to be aware of this too.

How did growing up with twin sisters help you with this role? Did Mary-Kate and Ashley give you any advice?

“We don’t talk about work, but, I grew up with twins. Maybe that’s something that subconsciously seeps in, I guess — kind of completing someone’s thoughts and making sure the other person is alright. Aaron and I talked about it a lot. Basically, in all of their art together in the comic books, they’re incredibly close. They’re holding hands, and they’re always in some sort of protective situation. The way we understood it was that they didn’t even have to speak to each other to be able to understand each other. They’re all each other had in the world. They completed each other.” (x)

types trying to navigate a maze

suggested by dm24446 

*The rationals, diplomats, sentinels, and explorers split into 4 teams. all are required to reach the finish. They were told it wasn’t a race, but ENTJ took it too far, and now everyone’s mad* *basically, it’s just a mess*

*The rationals take the lead*

ENTJ: I say we tackle this using teamwork….somewhat…..

INTJ: What do you mean by somewhat?

ENTJ: I mean…it’s like 30% teamwork and 70% my excellent leadership skills.

ENTP: ohohoho what?!

INTJ: Dear lord

ENTP: When has that plan EVER worked?

INTJ: Or…ya know…u could listen to my-

ENTP: I say we take a more creative approach….

INTJ: nevermind *leaves and navigates the maze themselves*

INTP: What if….it’s not actually a maze

INTJ: *from down the alley* STOP

INTP: Just sayin….

ENTP: You do have a point…

ENTJ: NO. NO THEY DON’T.

_______________

*The Sentinels follow*

ESTJ: C’mon we can let them win. Everyone follow me w/out thinking of the consequences…

ISFJ: Wait….where’s ESFJ???

ISTJ: They aren’t CHEATING are they?

ISFJ: They would never.

ISTJ: If they were cheating, they’d be disqualified.

ESFJ: Sorry, I was talking to ENFP

ESTJ: WE DO NOT TALK TO OTHER TEAMS.

ESFJ: Riiiiight……they’re taking a break right now

ISTJ: We don’t take breaks, right ESTJ?

ESTJ: Right.

_______________

*The diplomats sit, resting*

ENFJ: We’re taking our time guys, it doesn’t matter who wins.

INFJ: Why is it that life is such a competition?

INFP: It’s a sad world we live in….

ENFP: That’s pretty deep, but…..I say we just revolt.

ENFJ: Against who?

ENFP:…..The world.

INFP: That could solve all of our problems.

INFJ: But only new ones will arise

ENFJ: Very true.

ENFP: Oh, I have loads of other good ideas…..imagine it….CARS THAT GLOW IN THE DARK….we would no longer have to worry about the night being dark…

________________

*The explorers are still stuck at the entrance*

ESFP: What are we gonna do???!

ISFP: *starts crying*

ESFP: Are we gonna be stuck here for the rest of our LIVES???

ISTP: Well, I’m not. See ya. *Leaves through the entrance*

ESFP: Cuz if we were…that would be so…so….NOT fun!

ISFP: *crying harder* THE WORLD IS COLLAPSING….

ESTP: No c’mon guys…there’s an easy solution….

ISFP: What???

ESTP: WE PUNCH THROUGH THE WALLS.

*The sentinels pass the rationals, because they can’t pin down a proper plan in time, but are worn out because they never stopped to rest. They are defeated by the diplomats…however, the explorers are the true winners. They decided to leave through the entrance after five minutes. They had better things to do.*

Why.

Hi there! Thank you so much for your fascinating blog! I’m very interested in Classics, so when watching your page I remembered that quite a number of Roman emperors came from North Africa, just like a relatively great number of important senators.

These were really interesting emperors as well, so I really don’t get why no-one has bothered to make a movie out of their lives, or gives more attention to them. I’d love to see a film about Septimius Severus, for instance. Anyway, thanks again! You’ve opened my eyes to a lot of amazing art :). — hiddenlookingglass

Thank you so much. I would as well, except:

Yes, that is a real quote.

And that, my friend, is “why”.

I’m sure the notes for this post will be full of people arguing for how “historically accurate” whiteness is, but when it comes down to it, all this is really about is replicating the cultural/collective belief and association of “History=White”.

And really, there aren’t enough white people in movies for you? Because that’s really what it boils down to. Even when the people in charge of casting and producing these “historical” style films openly admit that they avoid casting people of color in their movies.

And I really shouldn’t have to explain anymore why this is a problem, and one that desperately needs to be addressed.
