also what the hell is up with the html bit when trying to post

How Dan and Phil will use tumblr in the future | 17.08.17
  • Phil: Something I wanted to talk about, which I'm just going to randomly bring up.
  • Dan: Do it.
  • Phil: I want to change the way I use my tumblr a little bit. Because with tumblr I used to use it for a little reblogging, posting my videos but then like choosing aesthetic pictures of a dog or a cute animal or a lake. I'm kind of done with the whole lake, cute animal vibe of Tumblr right now.
  • Dan: Well, I mean what is tumblr supposed to be? It's just a blog website.
  • Phil: It's just your blog. Yeah, I mean I used -
  • Dan: Then it became this whole like reblog things that reflect your aesthetic slash who you are.
  • Phil: I kind of want to like, showcase more art that you guys do. I like a lot of it but I'd like to start reblogging it. So I'm still going to post my videos on tumblr and stuff but I'm also going to start reblogging lots of art. So, if you've done some art of me or you've done some art of me and Dan, just tag it as AmazingPhil and I'll see it and then I might reblog it. I'm not saying I'll reblog everything I see, I'm just going to reblog a few. I'll like some more as well. But I'll be doing some more of that and trying to boost some of you artists. Because then I feel like I'll use the website more.
  • Someone in chat: That's awesome.
  • Someone else in chat: Cool but I'm not good at art.
  • Phil: That's fine. You can still tweet me and we can have a chat and then you can enjoy them as well and get to look at some other people's art.
  • Dan: I like a lot, so if you go to whatever the hell the url for my tumblr likes is, then you can see all the... stuff.
  • Phil: So you're still cool with your tumblr though, you like reblog...
  • Dan: Yeah, like once a month I curate. It just so much pressure. Like it has to be... like I save drafts for weeks and then go through and just turn it into one lot of queue that's like fifteen posts because it just has to be...
  • Phil: To be perfect.
  • Dan: Exactly what it's supposed to be, which is kind of pointless when my theme is so trash. But where do you even begin? I don't even know to change... Like I, honestly, you know how you go to customise and there'e the html and I'm just like... I don't want to touch this!
  • Phil: You don't want to mess it up.
  • Dan: Like they say don't fix what's broke. My theme is already broke but like, don't broke even more what's already kind of broke, you know what I mean?
  • Phil: Did you just even say a sentence? I don't know but yeah, so if you want to follow me on tumblr to find out what's going on, it's just amazingphil.tumblr.com and you can see me reblogging some stuff.

reignfier  asked:

So I got really excited over my hand lettering and decided to request a fic as well but no pressure :D outgoing Clarke tries to hint her interest at Bellamy but he's such a nerd he totally doesn't get that she likes him.

I hope you like it! Thanks for the prompt <3

Bellamy didn’t mean to become a professional YouTuber.

He was convinced, as a preteen who watched tons of daytime court TV shows that aired on public access channels when he and O got home from school, that he wanted to be a lawyer. Making decent money, arguing with people professionally… it seemed like a sweet deal to Bellamy.

And out of– probably stubbornness, honestly– that remained the plan for years.

But then halfway through law school, a professor he TA’d for started assigning videos for her first years to watch outside of class. Between the narrator’s long-windedness and lofty vocabulary, and the dryness and complexity of the topics, Bellamy’s office hours had been flooded with students asking him to explain the very same concepts in ways they would understand.

“I don’t have time for this,” he’d complained to Miller, who just reached over to pat his shoulder patronizingly, not even looking up from the textbook in his lap.

“Kids these days, am I right?”

“The videos are a good idea,” Bellamy continued, knowing Miller was hardly listening. “They would work great if they didn’t always lead to students tracking me down while I’m trying to study so they can ask me all the same shit.”

“So make a better video.”

Bellamy blinked at him. “Is that an actual suggestion, or are you just bored with my ranting?”

“It can be both,” Miller shrugged. “If you can’t join them, beat them.”

“Huh,” he said. “Maybe I will.”

So he did. He expected to be emailing students the links, maybe sharing them on the class Facebook page. He never expected them to start getting hits from law students across the country.

He posted another video, and then another, each time the views and likes climbing little by little. YouTube ads started making him a little bit of money on the side, not enough to support himself (not at first), but enough it kept him going. Kept him filming and uploading.

That’s when Monty came in.

“I’m going to help you out.”

Bellamy frowned at him, shrugging his backpack off. It wasn’t unusual for him to come home to find Monty there, laptop balanced precariously on top of Miller’s legs thrown across his lap, the two of them studying together. In his opinion, it was only a matter of time before they hooked up on that couch, and Miller was going to owe him twenty bucks.

(“If we don’t hook up, then I’ll have twenty bucks. If we do hook up, it’s not that hard to just move it somewhere else. You’re making this too easy for me.” “It’s a gesture, asshole. I’m rooting for you guys.” “You’re welcome to root for me with your wallet anytime, dude. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.”)

“What are you helping me with?”

“Your video thing.” He turned his laptop to show that he had Bellamy’s page pulled up, icon and banner blank. “More specifically, production quality. If you’re willing to shell out a little bit of your internet money on some better equipment, I can help you film and edit your stuff so that it looks a little more legit.”

“Less like you’re in some basement somewhere making instructional videos on how to make suits out of skin,” Miller added. Bellamy gave him the finger.

This isn't to start any discourse and I'm pretty sure this is actually pretty old?? But I thought if anyone I would go to you for info. I've never watched JonTrons stuff and wasn't around when he was on game grumps, but apparently shit went down? I don't necessarily care for him Bc I don't know him but what happened that made so many people stop liking him?? I have honestly no clue

This is a long post oops, ill try to see if i can edit it to include a readmore in the html after i post it

But anyway

Welcome to Rems ⭐️✨Discourse Corner⭐️✨

(Note: Yall can just google shit? Google is your friend! Dont be afraid of it! This massive, innovative piece of technology is right at your fingertips !! Lmao)

Let me preface this by saying thay i *really* liked Jon and his videos; i started watching in late…2015?? Whenever that zoo race episode came out lol. Me and my friends would watch his videos and marathon them together despite all of us living in completely different parts of the country.

So i LIKED his content! I really did! And as someone who is somewhat critical of White Men in Comedy (bc alot of them tend to fall back on racist/sexist jokes) I was pretty okay with him. I never watched the Jon era of GG (only some select episodes) but I heard that they (Jon AND Arin) used to be kind of bad. But since the newer episodes of GG (with Dan) were in better tastes, and I had no complaints with Jons videos at the time, i assumed it was just a thing of the past and that they had matured a bit.

Anyway, fast forward to the end of 2016 (beginning of 2017? Cant remember) and Jon unleashes Twitter Hell™. Mind u, the Entire time i watched Jon, i never peeped on Reddit (i just dont visit that site) and i NEVER went on twitter(bc i didnt have an account there). So if he ever posted some crazy controversial shit, i was unaware bc i never saw it appear on my dash on tumblr.

TL;DR he made some shitty xenophobic remarks regarding refugees in fleeing a wartorn city (Syria i think). And people were like hold the fuck up are u serious?? Some people at Nor//malBoo//ts (PBG in particular) called him out on how backwards and insensitive that mindset was. And i cant remember where his parents are from but his parents are definitely immigrants. So ye, hypocritical.

Hes also gone on the record of blasting people who attended the Womens March earlier this year. God i cant remember this shit word for word but it was just him rambling about equal rights but refusing to call himself a feminist bc apparently no one understands the Actual Meaning of feminist. That somehow being a feminist was inherently sexist bc you are prioritizing an entire gender over another???

OKAY WAIT HERE I GOOGLED T (like u know….u couldve done lmao)

https://www.google.com/amp/www.wetheunicorns.com/news/jon-tron-womens-march-twitter-sexist-jontron/amp/

(I dont know how to html this shit on mobile)

EVERYTHING IS THERE GO READ IT (and the article itself is also good; whatever they said was exactly what i wouldve said)

Basically…he showed his True Colors that day and whoever remains are either people who follow his ideals or people who are just now being introduced to him and have no prior knowledge on him as a person. Hes been MIA for seven (7!) months and alot of us were sure hed scurried away. But no, hes still here, he just made a new video but ill be damned if i watch it and give him views lol

Hello Neo! How do you tell if a theme consists of "good code" or if the code is "well done"? Just curious :)

Hello darling ♡

All right so code healthiness is a subject that matters a lot to me, and I’m not saying my code is perfect or anything (my tutor scolds me all the time for many different things), but I think everyone that does code (on tumblr or anywhere else) should be aware of best practices etc.

For the theme I reblogged earlier, bad code would have been having two “sections,” one containing the large/permalink posts and the other the grid views, and therefore the theme would have been loading posts twice (once in the permalink section, once in the grid section) 

That said, tumblr’s themes do not evolve on the same level as actual websites’ codes, so it’s weird to compare them (reading between the lines: I need to chill), but when I do code reviews for tumblr themes, here are the points I check:

  • Generally: The code is indented logically, the code has been cleared of empty/useless divs/classes etc: all that remains makes sense
  • CSS:  Overriding values are at their minimum, when styles are used often (display:inline-block; vertical-align:middle;), their selectors are combined together, everything makes sense like there are no ???? things such as “position:fixed; float:right;”
  • HTML: Use HTML5. No empty/garbage divs. Also please save puppies and forget inline styling has been a thing 
  • Names: IDs are unique, IDs/classes are not named after any semantic elements (class=“label” instead of <label>, id=“section” instead of <section>), yet stay legible (you know what they’re about). They don’t have typos! Lastly, having one class instead of an ID is OK, but don’t have many divs with different IDs attached to one script/one styling: use a class name.
    > Fun story: At work, we had a coding logic on a site we worked on with classes called .box-master-prices-param1-param2.., and Smoll (a.k.a my tutor) made a typo during early development days on one of the master boxes’ param, like .box-master-prices-suqares instead of “square”, and because he was too lazy to fix his typo, he used his class everywhere. SCSS, Scripts, HTML… After like, 5 years of people too lazy to fix it, the code had evolved so much around this typo that it became quasi-impossible to fix it… lmfao
  • Scripts: Shortened/compiled when needed, externalised if possible, not too many shorthands expression (ex: if() without braces), “toggles” are bound to disappear so use if()/else instead, D.R.Y: Do Not Repeat Yourself — if a bit of code is used several time, it becomes a function on its own and is defined out of the event’s scope 
    It’s the hardest part, but a script is supposed to evolve with the website, so it must have a life on its own and not rely too much on the DOM elements… I don’t have an example up my sleeve, so I hope it’s clear :( 

As a side note: Good code is not about design or UX. Your website can be ugly/not responsive/not respecting accessibility constraints/shit for users to use and still be a case study with its beautiful, sharp, strong lines (…that’s a pun. you read it right.) of code.

QUICK TIPS & TOOLS TO WRITE BETTER CODE :

  • Test your code. Users will never use your thing the way you expected them to, so your code has to be ready to be sprained, be twisted, be mishandled — it has to take it all without whining.
  • Have a friend that knows only the basics of HTML/CSS, and make them change the colour of the text or something equally benign. If they can’t do it in less than a minute, it’s not that they suck, it’s that your code isn’t organized well enough.
  • Use Caniuse to see what you can do to provide a consistent user experience on all browsers
  • Make your design responsive to provide a consistent user experience on all devices
  • W3C checker
  • Google Insight
  • Read these: What is good code?, Code checklist, 8 definitions of good code, how to be a badass developer, tips to write better code

The definition of “good code” on tumblr is VERY different of “good code” in general. Here, makers have a limited range of langages they can use (javascript/css/html, no preprocessors), so good code is more about using the right javascript functions, being clever in code organization, having your code as short and efficient as possible etc.
Talking about “good code” on tumblr is also a little caustic considering most theme makers are self-learning and do code as a hobby (side point: you guys are heroes for that), and you therefore can not expect theme makers to try harder than having the code working. As long as the code works it’s good. Like don’t stress yourself.

But like seriously, I work as a professional developer and I do bad code. I do bad code all the time. Sometimes I’m not even daring to look at my teachers in the eyes because if they knew they would be so disappointed in me. (it’s different at my job because when I do shits my coworkers know/can smack the hell out of me right away, so I trY MY BEST)
I just told you to make your themes responsive for a “consistent user experience on all devices” but do I do it? I don’t. I actually don’t give a damn, I’m too lazy to make my themes responsive. Priorities ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Keep in mind: Pure™ code DOES NOT EXIST. No one writes an absolute code, not even Paul Irish (and I admire Paul Irish so much I want to cry).

So here’s my take on good/bad code, but I said it before and I say it again: as long as it works, you’re good. Don’t break a vein over your coding style because you’re not a professional developer, you’re here to have fun and enjoy doing things, so if refractionating your code is a pain, then don’t bother doing it. It’s all good! :)

Medvezhonok
The Winter Soldier is on the run and no one is more surprised than he is by the fact that he is accompanied by a little boy who seems convinced that he is his father.

I love you like rlb
It was Dernier as first said it. Steve never imagined that something like that could have survived the war and all the years in between.

Brooklyn
“Captain America, what’s your stance on gay marriage?” Everyone knows that, by now. Everyone but Bucky.

To the One I’ve Sinned Against
He knelt, touched his fingers to forehead, chest, left shoulder, right, and said more words than the soldier could ever remember speaking together. They came in a well-worn fluent rush, easier than any post-mission report: “Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It has been a long time since my last confession.”

Mighty like Love, Mighty like Sorrow
“After freeing himself from the Russians’ mind control, Bucky is left at loose ends, drifting through the decades. Still, he’s in no hurry to take up Nick Fury’s offer to once again fight the good fight – especially not when Fury has the nerve to put some imposter in his best friend’s old suit and send him out to fight against Chitauri.

The Bucky Barnes Guide to Household Management
Steve is unobservant, Bucky learns to be good at things that aren’t killing people, and knitting happens.

and we are finally home
The Winter Soldier shows up in Sam’s kitchen, one morning. He deals with it. (Natasha helps. Steve would, if they let him.)

Sforzando
The Winter Soldier shows up in Sam’s kitchen, one morning. He deals with it. (Natasha helps. Steve would, if they let him.)

The Art Of Trolling
Since everyone thinks they can ask all kinds of intrusive questions about Captain America, it’s Bucky’s duty to troll the hell out of them.

Poltergeists
When the helicarriers blow up and the Winter Soldier goes on the run, he takes Steve with him. He’s got a name written in Morse code on the inside of his arm, a ton of questions he doesn’t know how to ask, and now, a new handler with absolutely zero sense of self-preservation to contend with. Life is hard. In which Bucky tries to figure out whether he’s a human being, Steve does everything he can to keep from losing him again, and there are lots of explosions.

Learning to say Hello
Clint had woken up one morning about three weeks ago (Well, Clint guessed about three. Definitely more than one. Maybe.) and stumbled down to the living room only to realize there was a guy on his couch. Barnes had been having a staring contest with Lucky (one eye shut, to make it fair, Clint had noticed) and Clint had decided to just leave him to it and make decisions after he’d had some coffee.

The S. Rogers Memorial (it’s NOT a shrine) to J. B. Barnes
When the Avengers realize that Steve doesn’t have anything to remind him of Bucky Barnes, they embark on a project to track down Bucky memorabilia. But it seems that Steve isn’t the only visitor to the (unofficial) J. B. Barnes memorial (which is totally NOT a shrine, Tony).

sam deserves better than these assholes
I’M SORRY BUT SAM WILSON STARING IN BAFFLED WONDER AT STEVE AND BUCKY AND HOW WEIRD THEY ARE ABOUT EACH OTHER

This One’s For Bravery and This One’s For Me
The thing is, he’s read most all of the books that have been written about Captain America. At first he was desperate to understand why people were so strange about him, why it felt like the whole world was staring at him, waiting for him to do something amazing. Before the Chitauri invasion, no one had told him that a generation of Americans had grown up watching Captain America cartoons on Saturday morning. No one had said that the stupid propaganda reels he shot with the USO and later with the Commandos would be dissected by scores of academics for cultural meaning, that every part of his life and death already had a book written about it. No one had told him what kind of symbol Captain America had become, because the answer was too complicated, and had changed every decade or so anyway.

Operation Star-Spangled Double(s)
“Y’know, there are technically three of us,” Clint pointed out. “Shouldn’t it be Operation Star-Spangled Doubles?” “Now you’re just nitpicking,” Tony said. He tacked a hasty (s) to the end of DOUBLE. “Also, I’m pretty sure that’s permanent marker,” Clint added. “Damn it!” Tony shouted.
Or, in the Parlance of the Internet, a Most Useful and Modern Device, a List:Step 1: Impersonate Captain America. Step 2: ??? Step 3: Profit.

Geriatric Roadtrip, 2015
Bucky was the eldest of four.

Find My Way
Well, someone had to write the post-Winter Soldier fic where Bucky gets a decent meal and some homemade apple pie, right?

Coffeemaking for Dummies
In which Tony proves he has a secondary career option, Sam is a a good guy and Natasha chooses to take a chance on Rogers’ good judgement.

Selfies from the Underground
Tony reminded himself that the second the incorrect password was entered, the phone would destroy itself and any data on it. And there was no way someone named Tepid the Magnificent would guess– “I’m in,” said Tepid. “Soon I’ll know all of the Avengers’ secrets.” Tony briefly closed his eyes. “Steve. What was your password?” “It’s ‘password,’” Tepid replied.

Broken Dicks and Bloody Noses
Steve and Bucky meet in the ER, and then keep meeting in the ER because they are both knuckleheads who keep getting beaten up by other people.

Meet-Cute AUs
Steve and Bucky meet, again and again.

The man on the bridge
Steve Rogers turning up at Tony’s door in the middle of the night might be a bit out of character, but it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility. Stranger things have happened.Steve Rogers turning up at Tony’s door with an amnesiac assassin - who may or may not have some of Tony’s personally designed hardware attached where his arm should be - well that’s just far too interesting to turn away, even if Tony is trying to avoid all things S.H.I.E.L.D these days..

I’ve Never Felt Young (But For You I’ll Try)
Bucky has been working at Clint’s bakery ever since he left the military. He’s happy with his life, and adjusting to his missing arm. But when tiny, argumentative Steve Rogers walks into the bakery one day, his life will never be the same….

Bucky Barnes is a Goddamn Menace
It was a good thing that the Avengers had some experience with what a little shit Steve Rogers actually was, because adding Bucky Barnes to the mix turned out to just make everything so much worse.

make one dream come true (you only live twice)
Five times the Winter Soldier evaded capture. In which there are tuxedoes, vodka martinis (shaken, not stirred), fakeout makeouts, massive property damage, a shark pit, and Steve has an Ursula Andress moment. But mostly, in true James Bond fashion, villains are seduced to the side of good.

Steve Rogers at 100: Celebrating Captain America on Film
Steve and Bucky find out Hollywood has been busy since they went away. A historical survey, including but not limited to: one set of exploded genitals, a brief interlude in France, Mel Gibson and other masterworks of casting, eight Academy awards, several dinosaurs, and something Tony Stark has ominously dubbed “the masterpiece.” Art included.
