i made rick on a whim at the beginning of october and it was one of the best impulse decisions i’ve ever made. i’ve never felt so welcomed into a new fandom; everyone has been incredibly kind and supportive getting this blog off the ground, and stuck with me during the busy periods i haven’t been able to get online. it really means a lot, and i’m thankful for each and every one of you that hit that follow button - whether you’ve been following for 5 minutes or since this blog’s conception. seriously: thank you.
TEAM FAMILY: my sun and stars; blogs i will adore until the end of time:
i know for a fact i’ve missed blogs out - this list is entirely off the top of my head, and as it’s gone 2am i’m not thinking too straight. but i wanted to get this up before i sleep, as i won’t be around now until 2017 - i’ll be back sometime in the first week hopefully with a full revamp and lots of muse!
i hope you all have a good holiday wherever you are, and a brilliant new year! stay safe, look after yourselves, and once again, thank you for following my painfully slow ass because it means everything to me. ♡
Getting rid of the follow/tumblr buttons on YOUR OWN BLOG
Okay, so a bit of fiddling brought it to my attention that this was appearing on two of my sideblogs but not on two others. And I looked around and found the settings were different.
To make the annoying “follow_______” and “tumblr” buttons disappear from your blog for now, from your dashboard do the following:
1. Navigate to your settings. You don’t want the global ones, you want the ones just for that particular blog. Find the option to Edit Theme. Choose this.
2. Your Theme editor will open. Scroll down to the bottom of the black sidebar in the editor, choose Advanced Options.
3. Where the option is set to “promote tumblr”, make sure the switch is off (white not blue). This will remove the follow______ and tumblr buttons from YOUR BLOG ONLY.
I don’t know where the other controls went, but these controls there now are the ones that display for those not currently logged in (meaning tumblr somewhere thinks you’re not logged in even though you are - it’s fine it’s just confused probably and everything else is still working). If you’re not “promoting tumblr” it won’t give you these options.
Whatever they’re doing with the iframe controls in the meantime is anyone’s guess. They’ve disappeared.
There’s nothing I can do to fix this for other people’s blogs. You can only affect your own, but at least you’ll stop being asked to follow yourself (and all those on your blog will stop seeing it too - checked from the independent other account).
CAN WE JUST TAKE A MINUTE to appreciate the fact that in a couple years from now, we can all sit down and watch season one from beginning to end? we’ll know how bughead turns out, we’ll know who jason’s killer was, we’ll have context to all of beronica’s strengths and quirks and we’ll have seen how mary andrews interacts with her son. we’ll have watched jughead grow and thrive and stand up for himself re: his abusive father, and we’ll be thankful for that time josie’s dad walked out on her performance and taught her how to love her SELF. we’ll remember how cheryl cried at jason’s memorial and know who she becomes after she gets closure about her brother’s death and we’ll have watched polly grow into a mother and betty into an aunt. we’ll look back on this season and think, it’ll be okay, guys. there will be new fans and we will welcome them and we will always remember getting outraged as they panned out and showed the little bed in jughead’s drive-in and that feeling of shock when betty walked out in her wig. i don’t know about you guys but whether there are 2 seasons or 10 i’m going to sit down in a couple years and watch this season over and remember all of the great people i met through this fandom and what a great time we all had. so excuse me while I remind u all that the next episode we’ve been waiting for comes out in less than a week and let me just bask in this for a minute & thank u all for being great.
