Buttons Tumblr Needs

‘Dislike’

‘Disagree’

‘I don’t disagree but I see where the people who do are coming from but I don’t want to get into it right now’

‘I disagree but I see where you’re coming from’

‘i don’t like this post but it makes very good points’

‘I LOVE THIS POST SO FUCKING MUCH! df;lkjdsklfj;lfhds;kjfhds;jkfhd *incoherent rambling* !!!!’

Dislike Buttons

I’ve been thinking, why do people want to have a dislike button? I mean, you’ve gotta be having some thoughts about the backlash that’s bound to happen if any social media has these dislike button. Yeah we could probably bring down some of those hate posts and pages, but what about all those people who don’t no better, and just press it for kicks, and all those people who’ll take it personally. I’m not saying that everyone are like this, but there are people who do feel this way. Why spread the negativity? Why do the exact same thing, that post, or video, or picture is advertising? All the anger, and hate, and pain it would cause. I honestly don’t understand what good, a dislike button will bring. 

do any social networks have a like and a dislike button but only the likes are publicly visible, so dislikes are just an invisible signal to the content shuffling algorithm that you want to see fewer things like this, without directly offending or depressing the author

Passionate
The image of you is engraved in my mind
Each piece is essential to your being
I wouldn’t compromise a thing  
Obsessive

Observant
I will familiarize myself with your likes and dislikes
Push your buttons just right,
In order for you to hate me just as much as you love me
Manipulative

Misunderstood
Mystery and suspicion thrive within my tense bones
I just want your love
And your tears
Self-destructive

I... dont mean to be an... annoyance... and Im sure you guys get questions all the time so I dont necessarily expect this to be answered but... what... inspired you to create speedpaints? Dont you get nervous people might not like your work? Also... do... do you think you could spare some advice for those of us dealing with personal issues or depression? I always find advice from artists like yourselves to be very good and sentimental.... its just... always nice to hear that youre not alone.

For the speedpaint question : well I wanted to try it out since watching drawings (even my own) being sped up looks soothing to me (idk why it just does). Also I can’t always provide animatics 24/7 for my subscribers so I thought speedpaints could be an alternative.
I am aware some people might not like my drawings (that’s why the dislike button is there duhh :U) but it reassures me that there are a few people that look up to my drawings. :D

For the second question I’ll give you a heads up- I’m not good at giving advice, (ik i’ve said that 500 times) I’m more of a listener but I’ll try my best…

Son of Gotham

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;

It rains, and the wind is never weary;

The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,

But at every gust the dead leaves fall,

And the day is dark and dreary.


Wet cobblestones.

Wet nose.

Jason swiped his dripping nose.

Damn, wet hand too.

Wet everything.

Wet eyes as well, but that was no matter. Don’t look at the pain, that was his motto. At least, that’s what helped in the street.

He shook raindrops from his leather jacket, wishing dreadfully for a cigarette. Anything to take the edge off (that was also his motto). He lit one, hands numb and chapped.

The city breathed like a sleeping monster. He could feel it, Gotham’s life seeping under his finger nails.

Lots of people thought him crazy, but he knew–KNEW–Gotham was alive. She was thought a cruel mistress, and perhaps was. Gotham never let go. But Jason felt in his bones, like rust and decay, how Gotham ached. Her children worked, fought, died like infernal hands atop a clock. Claws of time.

Jason kicked a loose stone. They were all susceptible to time. They were all susceptible to loss. They were all susceptible to pain.

Gotham most of all.

Sometimes he could hear her crying in the night. A wail in the wind. A frozen sob.

He could hear Gotham.

And shit this car has been following him for a while. Can’t a man in a leather jacket walk in the rain alone without suspicion?

Wait, that mental image was creepy.

Even so, Jason’s hand crept into his holster as he flicked cigarette ash into the night. The car’s lights were out. The only distinction of sound was the roll of tires in puddles. The street vigilante stopped and faced an abandoned shop, miming the action of lighting a cigarette. Jason clenched his jaw, gritting his teeth in hopes of removing the chill. He rubbed the cigarette between his fingers. The old window reflected the red tip.

The car braked about two feet back.

Jason took a puff. His hand slid down and cocked his gun.

One mississppi.

Two mississppi.

Three–

He spun around and pointed the firearm into his stalker’s face.

Lightning flashed.

Batman looked back at him.

Thunder rumbled.

They stood for a long moment.

The rain trickled in the background.

Finally Jason blinked and lowered his gun, shifting on the safety and placing it back in his holster. “Nice night,” he greeted hollowly.

anonymous asked:

Why do u consider people who disliked twices mv to be 'shits'? What's wrong in disliking something?

There’s nothing wrong about disliking something. But if you don’t like something but still exert effort just so everyone knows you dislike something, i think you’re shit. It’s what haters do basically. The like to dislike ratio on twice’s signal mv is uncanny. There’s nothing strongly unlikeable in their mv. If you didn’t like it, just walk away. Why exert effort to go click the dislike button just bcoz you don’t like it? Why were you watching it in the first place?! 100,000+ dislikes? It’s obviously done with malicious intent to make twice and their fans feel bad. And that’s shitty, it’s just people being petty.

anonymous asked:

I was wondering if you had any advice for a straight girl writing characters all along the spectrum. I want to make sure I'm doing it right.

Hey there anon!  We’re very glad to hear you’re writing characters from all over the LGBT+ spectrums, and we’re especially glad you want to do it right.  Unfortunately without knowing more specifics about your characters there’s a limit to what we can do, but there are a few universal rules.

1: research!  The fact that you’re asking is a very good sign.  Find blogs and articles written by people with the same identities you’re writing about, and read them.  Once you’ve done some reading, look for blogs (articles, etc.) written by people with the relevant identity and to/for people of the same identity; they tend to include more nuance and less 101, because the focus becomes “supporting each other in all our variety” instead of “presenting an easy-to-understand face to people with power over us.”  (Start with the 101!  You’ll be very confused otherwise.  But don’t stop there.)  Feel free to send us lots of questions too.

2: keep in mind that all of your LGBT+ characters are individuals before they’re LGBT+.  They will have hobbies and interests and likes and dislikes, berserk buttons and something guaranteed to delight them in any circumstance.  They’ll have financial concerns, catch colds, and so on; they may have intersectional identities.  Some people do choose to turn their LGBT+ identity into a dominant aspect of their life (getting a job as an activist, for example), but most don’t.  If a character never has a conversation without making some reference to how (gay/lesbian/bi/pan/poly/trans/ace/aro/etc.) they are, you’re probably overdoing it.

Good luck with your story!

Hollywood Is Losing the Battle Against Online Trolls
So-called "downvoting" is haunting movie marketers, but new Armenian genocide film 'The Promise' is trying to "fight fire with fire."

So-called “downvoting” is haunting movie marketers, but new Armenian genocide film ‘The Promise’ is trying to “fight fire with fire.”

It had taken years — and the passionate support of Kirk Kerkorian, who financed the film’s $100 million budget without expecting to ever make a profit — for The Promise, a historical romance set against the backdrop of the Armenian genocide and starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, to reach the screen. Producers always knew it would be controversial: Descendants of the 1.5 million Armenians killed by the Ottoman Empire shortly after the onset of World War I have long pressed for the episode to be recognized as a genocide despite the Turkish government’s insistence the deaths were not a premeditated extermination.

The Promise, which opens April 21, finally would bring the untold saga to a mass audience. But at the Toronto Film Festival premiere in September, producer Mike Medavoy watched the late billionaire’s carefully laid plans upended by a digital swarm that appeared out of nowhere.

Before the critics in attendance even had the chance to exit Roy Thompson Hall, let alone write their reviews, The Promise’s IMDb page was flooded with tens of thousands of one-star ratings. “All I know is that we were in about a 900-seat house with a real ovation at the end, and then you see almost 100,000 people who claim the movie isn’t any good,” says Medavoy. Panicked calls were placed to IMDb, but there was nothing the site could do. “One thing that they can track is where the votes come from,” says Eric Esrailian, who also produced the film, and “the vast majority of people voting were not from Canada. So I know they weren’t in Toronto.”

The online campaign against The Promise appears to have originated on sites like Incisozluk, a Turkish version of 4chan, where there were calls for users to “downvote” the film’s ratings on IMDb and YouTube. A rough translation of one post: “Guys, Hollywood is filming a big movie about the so-called Armenian genocide and the trailer has already been watched 700k times. We need to do something urgently.” Soon afterward, the user gleefully noted The Promise’s average IMDb rating had reached a dismaying 1.8 stars. “They know that the IMDb rating will stay with the film forever,” says Esrailian. “It’s a kind of censorship, really.”

While the attack against The Promise is an extreme case, colored by decades of fraught discussion over the Armenian genocide, it highlights a growing problem in Hollywood. A search of 4chan reveals multiple campaigns against everything from Star Wars spinoff Rogue One to indie Holocaust-denier drama Denial to Justin Simien’s upcoming Netflix series Dear White People, many with step-by-step instructions on how to negatively impact films on sites like IMDb and YouTube. Once just a curiosity — for years, Korean fans made an annual ritual of vaulting K-Pop idol Rain to the top of the Time 100 Poll — online trolls now are a movie marketer’s worst nightmare.

In 2016, the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters became a magnet for a downvoting campaign from 4chan and Reddit users. They organized to give hundreds of thousands of “thumbs down” to the film’s YouTube marketing materials — its first official trailer, the video of its theme song, even a clip of the cast on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Sony began releasing the film’s trailers on Facebook, which has no “dislike” button, but by then the trolls had taken hold of the narrative. It’s impossible to say whether they made an impact on the box office, but in the end, Ghostbusters lost an estimated $70 million.

Studios can’t count on the websites hosting the ratings for help. When THR reached out for comment, a spokeswoman for Amazon-owned IMDb referred to the site’s FAQ section, which notes that its ratings system is meant to aggregate public opinion. It uses a weighted average but doesn’t reveal specifics about how a film’s final rating is determined in order “to prevent abuse and minimize attempts to stuff the ballot or otherwise influence the integrity of the voting system.”

These types of attacks aren’t exclusive to IMDb. Amy Schumer posted a lengthy message on Instagram in March after news sites reported that her new Netflix stand-up special, The Leather Special, had a one-star rating on the streamer. “The alt right organized trolls attack everything I do,” reads her post. “They organize to get my ratings down. Meeting in sub Reddit rooms.”  

Netflix maintains that its star rating was not an average of all users’ ratings but rather a personalized recommendation based on a user’s viewing history, past ratings and the ratings of other members with similar viewing habits. But a search on Reddit yields multiple calls to downvote Schumer’s special, including several in a single forum with over 380,000 subscribers.

Netflix ditched its star ratings this month, replacing them with a percentage score of how likely any individual user is to enjoy a film. And for some Netflix members, Schumer’s stand-up special was upgraded from a low star rating to an overwhelmingly positive percent match score.

So what’s the best way to fight off an army of trolls? The only way may be to raise an army of your own.

On IMDb, The Promise now has an average of 4.2 stars thanks to more than 35,000 10-star ratings that have been left by supporters of the film to counter the more than 60,000 one-star ratings. (There are fewer than 1,400 ratings between two and nine stars.) Esrailian doesn’t pretend that all of those high ratings come from people who’ve seen and loved the film. But he’ll take their votes nonetheless: “People realized you had to fight fire with fire.”


________________________

Very strange choice to headline with.  The Promise is doing pretty damn good on youtube.  Conflating The Promise with the other politically motivated media in the column is fairly shallow.  You fight “online trolls” aka people who don’t like your product, with people who do by making an appealing product.

#Proudtobe

So if anyone has seen Youtube’s Spotlight lately, they are supporting pride month with a promotional video and hashtag #Proudtobe

However this video has gotten a lot of negative feedback and dislikes. Now I found that weird since earlier this year YouTube also promoted a coming out montage video in support of the LGBT community taking positive steps. That video received so much positivity that there was hardly a negative comment. So why so many for this new video?

4Chan.

I did a little digging and found that a large group consisting of fundamentalists and neo-nazis had planned a YouTube raid against the #Proudtobe video. On the forum they discussed about making multiple accounts to spam the comment section and dislike button. They also plan to spam other people on tumblr and Twitter with graphic gore and porn images.

There is already so much hate in this world and yet again 4chan has been able to exploit that hate just to launch an attack. So let’s fight he hate and spread the love! Nothing they do can stop us from being who we are and what we represent!

So spread the word!
