keywords in tumblr

This isn’t a call-out post for a specific person. I’ll just call her X. Fan X made a post to complain about mean anti-reylo fans, saying how reylo shippers were being unfairly accused of racism (among other things). She cross-tagged her post with the finnrey tag. (Anyone who’s spent time in the finnrey tag has seen similar posts, yeah?) I sent X a PM, politely asking her to remove the tag. Some people had already commented on the post, asking for the tag to be removed, but it was still there, and I figured a PM might get her attention faster. I mentioned in passing that her post was off-track as well as badly tagged, and thought that would be the end of it. 

Instead it evolved into a conversation where X wanted to prove that she’s a fan of Finn, and she has NEVER EVER seen anything racist said about him on her dashboard from her fellow reylo fans. 

So before I dove back into the conversation, I did a keyword search on her tumblr. One of her most recent reblogs at that moment was a post that talks about how Finn is a beta male and inferior to Rey, and Rey had to save him 100 times, and so forth. (Some of y’all know the post I’m talking about. And no, I’m not exaggerating on the wording of it, that’s literally what it said… along with a bunch of light-and-dark and Romeo-and-Juliet imagery about reylo.)

X hadn’t noticed it. She missed the blatant racism and erasure of Finn as a lead in the post. She liked the pretty wording about how epic reylo is going to be, and that was enough to make the racism not ‘visible’ to her.

That’s what I think of when I see someone say that they’ve never seen anyone being racist in [insert ship or character or movie/show name here] fandom: a fan who will reblog a blatantly racist post that comes across their dashboard, and then have the ignorant bliss to say that they’ve never seen any racism in their section of fandom.

 Oh, hi there, kinkshaming anon…

I wonder if you are the same salty anon that’s been haunting my blog… but that one doesn’t speak in capslock… hm where do I start…? Let’s talk in points, shall we, so I can make sense of your screeching kinkshaming.

1.) I will never EVER leave Kojuro alone, he can’t take care of himself and he is the love of my otome life and you just have to deal with me as one of your sisterwives, capiche?

2.) Do you even know what Daddy kink is, outside of pornstars dressing like little girls calling their fellow performers (usually burly men) that? Not that I will kinkshaming anyone if they are into it. You see, it’s a spectrum. It is NOT ABOUT INCEST - IT’S ABOUT POWERPLAY. My take on Daddy kink is where I can position myself safely as the vulnerable one, the one to be spoiled and adored by a protector, a sophisticated older man who knows what he’s doing, sexually or otherwise.

Please note that I am not under any obligation to explain this to you but I will, since you might go around spreading this hate and I just want to get this out there so people who got your hate will read and feel better about themselves - the fault is not with them, they have the rights to enjoy the kink in their own blogs. You might have an anger issue.

You know the story Daddy Long Legs? (oh dear, have I ruined that story for you now? Sorry not sorry, you deserve it for being a petulant anon) - it’s that feeling of being safe and taken care of - that when everything goes sideways, he’ll be there to catch you and so on. This is the reason why I call Kojuro “Daddy” in my post sometimes… I feel safe and I can be his precious girl when I want to, sexually or otherwise. 

Originally posted by quincette

And, of course, Kojuro isn’t always the capable Daddy Long Legs - the man is domestically challenged - so I, as the MC, can switch to the role of his caretaker anytime I want, this is the dynamic that hooked me to his character, it balances itself out. 

This doesn’t apply to all older characters or love interest though, as much as Voltage shoved Shingen in our face as the “Daddy” character (among other inappropriate stuff), I can’t call him that because I don’t feel safe with him all the time. This is just me. Others may find it perfectly fine, and good for them!

My blog is safe for all kinks. And if I do spot something I’m not comfortable with, I am not gonna go anon to harass them. I’ll just scroll away, why stress yourself out and getting your panties twisted by other people’s stuff. I played otome for stress relief and this blog is for sharing my journey and take on the game, and interact with fellow fangirls.

3. I don’t have incestuous shit on my ass thank you very much. I don’t actually want to call a man take to my bed with “Daddy” and I don’t feel squeamish about using Daddy to refer to the kink because English is my second language and I don’t actually call my Dad “Daddy” - So I don’t have the ick factor, it’s lost in translation. Maybe this is something you need to consider before kinkshaming people. You, obviously call your dad daddy in real life, hence the ick. Well, you can just, you know, block me?

4. Have you even read my fics? Never ONCE I called Kojuro Daddy in fics… That would be like so anachronistic I can’t even - I’m a fan of the canon universe. I used “Sire”. And I don’t force anyone to read it. 

5. I thought we had this Daddy kink brouhaha last year? You are fairly new to the fandom, aren’t you? My suggestion will be to learn to use the block button or how to block certain tags and keywords, otherwise tumblr would be one helluva trigger hell for your prissy prim ass and you’ll spend all your time sending people this meaningless hate.

I do wonder why I got more anon haters of late…

To the fans of afterdeath, PLEASE read (at least the first half)

So I’ve noticed there’s been some issues concerning the afterdeath tag and what can be found under it (i.e. non afterdeath related posts). I wanted to address the issues regarding tag abuse/misuse of the afterdeath tag, problems with tumblr itself, and hopefully offer a possible solution to filter out at least most non-afterdeath related posts found when searching the term afterdeath.

First, I would like to address the issue with tumblr searches. You see, when you search a keyword on tumblr, tumblr will not only bring up all posts tagged afterdeath, but any and all posts that include that keyword somewhere in them. For example, someone may post something that mentions afterdeath, but isn’t about afterdeath. But since they included that keyword, tumblr includes it as a search result.
I think I may have a solution to filter out posts like this. At least for people not using the tumblr app.
If you aren’t using the tumblr app and search up the keyword “afterdeath” in the tumblr search, the web address will be as follows:

However, if you’re only looking to find posts TAGGED afterdeath, simply copy and paste the following web address:

This will filter out results that do not actually use the afterdeath tag. HOWEVER. This will obviously not filter out posts that abuse and/or misuse the afterdeath tag. Opinions on what is appropriate under the afterdeath tag may vary from person to person, but I would like to offer my personal opinion on what I think is proper and improper uses of the tag. If you don’t really care to hear my personal views on this, I suggest you stop reading the post here. I’m only including this because I feel some people might agree with me on this. I’m not the afterdeath police, and I’m not saying these are the absolute rules of what is appropriate and inappropriate. This is just my view on the matter.

What I think is PROPER use:
-Afterdeath ship fanart (obviously)
-Fanart of goth and/or other afterdeath ship children (I mean, they’re afterdeath children. The kids of our ship. Plus, using this tag would make them easier to find for those like me who really want to see them)
-afterdeath fusions

What I think is IMPROPER use:
-POTH. I know some may be unsure of whether to tag this as afterdeath. Yes, it does include Goth, But poth fanart is beyond the point of being afterdeath related. It’s its own ship at this point, and should be tagged under poth and not afterdeath.
-fanart of only reaper or only geno. I’ve seen this a lot lately. If the post only Includes reaper, or only includes geno, PLEASE do not tag it as afterdeath. It makes it look like you are trying to get notes by using the afterdeath tag as a form of clickbait. This is a tag for ship fanart. Not aftertale or reapertale fanart, not cpau fanart, afterdeath ship fanart.

But again, this is just my own personal opinions. I hope I was able to help at least someone with this.

a guide to tagging on tumblr

because it’s confusing as hell and it took me 3 years to figure out

okay so there’s 4 ways tags work: while searching, while looking at tagged content, tagging original posts and tagging reblogged posts

searching tags is when you click on the search loop on your dash. say, you want to look for kittens, you type “kittens” in the search bar and it will look for posts containing “kittens”. the url that belongs to this is seaching for keywords like this includes, but is not limited to, the tags. posts containing “kittens” will also pop up when searching.
using the search bar on a blog’s mobile theme has the same function, looking for keywords rather than in tags. (tumblr explains it in this post)

you are looking at tagged content when you go to this only searches tags, so posts that do have the word “kittens” will not pop up, only posts that actually have the tag #kittens. on someone’s dektop theme, you can go to to [[username]] and it will work the same way.

tagging original posts is really weird imo. only the first five tags will make the content pop up in the tag (i’m not entirely sure if other tags do make it pop up wile looking for them in the searching function). tagged posts also pop up in the search function.

tagging reblogged posts is completely different. the posts that you reblog will ONLY pop up in your blog’s tag, so adding lots of tags to your reblogged posts will not help your blog get more exposure. adding tags only helps sort your reblogged posts on your actual blog. you can find these posts both trough the search function on your blog and while looking for the tag, the way original posts both pop up in the search and tagged function on tumblr.

some other stuff:
- xkit has a function that helps you avoid posts witha certain tag, and tumblr saviour is an extention specifically for this.
- blacklist and tumblr saviour only pick up blacklisted words when they’re the first word in a tag. “tw trigger” won’t work, “trigger\” won’t work, but “trigger tw” and “trigger \” will work.
- xkit also has autotag, tag bundle, replace tags and add tags functions, those are p handy too
- you can search for two tags! in the search mode, look for “tag1, tag2″ (make sure there is a comma, otherwise it will only look for those words in that order). in the tag, there is a certain url to use:, TAG1 replacing your first tag and TAG2 replacing your 2nd tag you want to search. (neither of these work on mobile as far as i know)
- you can track tags, but technically you’re only tracking the search function. adding commas to your tracked tag doesn’t work. i don’t think tracked posts pop up on dektop either. it also only shows you the popular posts. and not once, more like, 10 times. this function is shit.

Okay yeah but seriously, I did actually make another RP blog, for Blue Diamond from Steven Universe this time, and I’m gonna TRY to figure things out a little better this time lmao.

Keyword being try.

Would appreciate it if y’all could promo it for me~! c:

The End of a Journey

Dear followers, it has at last come the time for me to conclude this project, which i have pursued for almost exactly 2 years at the moment i am writing this.

It has been a wonderful experience, one which i will always keep in my heart; my humble aspirations of bringing to you and to more casual users some sort of insight into the military history of World War Two and its participants in general, and of the Third Reich in particular, have hopefully achieved their objective; but only you can be the judge of that.

I´d like to believe that many of you have already noticed a long time ago that i have always tried to combine the above mentioned intentions with a deeper, more accurate aesthetical search for harmony and general beauty in the pictures i posted (the beauty of war, of course, which belongs to the Sublime, as described by Edmund Burke); to this end i have personally gone through thousands(not an exaggeration!) of pictures in the course of these two years, of which only 10% or so made it to the blog. I have certainly invested a lot of time in this project, much more than most people would be willing to, but as many of you know: passion is never a waste of time.

I would have never dreamt to get past 100 or 200 followers, yet here we are: almost 8500 followers, tens of thousands of notes, and over 1150+ posts. I cannot describe the happiness that every single like or reblog has brought me (and believe me, if you have ever reblogged/liked something on my blog, i have checked out your blog!). Yet, like all things, this has to end. Mind, i am not abandoning the blog midway, nor am i giving up on it for other reasons.

The project is merely completed; all objectives have been achieved and surpassed; the greatest ambitions i had for this blog could have never foreseen this. What started as a summer hobby developed in what now is now one of the biggest World War Two blogs on Tumblr, which is in my opinion no small thing, given the quality of the competition - and to verify that, you need only type a few common WW2 keywords in the Tumblr search bar, and see how often my posts come up! is never going to be deleted, as long as it is in my power to avoid that fate; it was always meant as an archive, and i´d be happy beyond words if any of you are planning to visit my archives in the future and have a look at my work - so please do let me know!

Despite being very niche, the World War Two/One community here on Tumblr is one of the earnest, i think, and it remains mainly detached from external influences that could negatively impact the community itself (politics being the first culprit of that). I pray that it remains so.

As for my person, i will not be leaving Tumblr for some time still, but i am moving on to other projects, which i have so fare nurtured as side-blogs for the last few months. Other than that, i shall remain nameless - and my FAQ has always been intentionally vague precisely because i wish to avoid any personal “contamination” of my blog.

Unfortunately, mainly for fault of my character, i have never been particularly close to anyone on Tumblr, though i have wished so. Regardless, special thanks go to: @machtzumsieg @klagt-nicht-kaempft @gruene-teufel @xenohell  @anitavanitas @tuttieroi @thecrystal-snowflake @british-eevee
@exsanguinationcontrol @fujisan-ni-noboru-hinode @abitofaramble @enzian-und-edelweiss @kotterias @ehre-den-gefallenen for always being very active followers, having great blogs, or being overall nice people - and in some cases, all three of those!

Random mention goes to @daanverlee and @tankfacts because i feel like you represent the historyblr community very well, and i think your blogs should get more attention!

Forgive me for the length of the post.

To those of you that speak/understand English i say: Farewell! May we meet again!

To those of you that speak/understand German i say: Gott segne euch! Meine Sachen sind alle in Ordnung. Lebt wohl! Wir sehen uns wieder und freudiger.

Plus Ultra.

ok so I was chatting with @kyloknightofren and had the idea that it might be good to have a standard tag for material that is Rey & Kylo as opposed to Rey/Kylo?

a platonic reylo tag?  a reylo brotp tag?

this would be so helpful for finding fic and fanart that deals with their connection in a non-sexy way.  I know there’s plenty of it out there because there are still some Rey Skywalker and Rey Solo theorists and also CWU has a very strong Rey & Kylo cousin/friendship.  Plus I’ll occasionally see Reylo shippers post something cute about how maybe they were friends as children?

anyway I am currently thinking #forcebuddies

or #teamforcebuddies

is this a good idea???

3 Essential Ways for Photographers to Get Inspired

Photography by Dane Papercrane

Written by Dane Papercrane

Have you ever had photographer’s block?  It’s like writer’s block.  When you cannot seem to figure out what to do for your next project.  It is when you rack your brain and find no inspiration.  Here are some tips for overcoming your creative dry spell.

Keep reading

FYI @ Everyone

If you don’t show up when people @ you on tumblr, it may be because you are, in old slang, “invisible to spiders” – google and other search engines are instructed not to index you, but this means tumblr can’t find you either even though you are…on their…site. Tumblr! *jazz hands*

SO the way to fix this and make yourself @ able is:

Go to Settings, click on your primary journal on the right-hand side, and scroll down to the bottom. Make sure “Allow this blog to appear in search results” is active (the switch should be blue, not grey).

This WILL have the side-effect of making you visible to search engines, so if people google your tumblr it will appear in Google’s results, and it may appear if they google keywords that appear in your tumblr. I have no issues with this but of course your mileage may vary, I know people have very good reasons for not wanting to show up in search engines.

But that’s how you do that, so. Yes.
