Important information for Content Creators on Tumblr (Last Updated June 23, 2017)

okay i know ive posted alot about this just now, but now that ive got it more or less figured out I’m gonna make a better post here and include the tags relevent to my interactions in it to ensure no one else in my fandoms/communities are blindsided like i was. 

I encourage you to make your own, or to just recopy this, tagging the fandoms and communities important to you!

CONTENT CREATORS: TUMBLR IS HIDING YOUR POSTS!

If you make a post with external links, your post will be hidden from searches. If you make a post and link to your redbubble, no one can search for your post. If you make art and link it to your deviantart or artstation, no one can search for you post. If you make any post and just throw on a “hey here is where you find me!” no one can search that post. If you want to recommend a fic or a youtube video, no one can search your post, if you… hell you get the idea. Tumblr has completely shut down content creators on this hellsite and its fucking infuriating.

I have just confirmed that the post type “Link” also does not show up in the tags. Thats right, there is an ENTIRE TYPE OF TUMBLR POST that cannot be searched. G-FUCKING-G TUMBLR.

EDIT: Okay! I have done more testing (and a video to go along with it) and at this point i can say that this is still very real, but that it only affects links to specific websites, presumably ones that tumblr doesn’t have added to some sort of “internal whitelist” of safe sites. 
I would suggest if you intend to continue tagging, to maintain a very very unique tag and use it to keep tabs on your work to ensure they are continuing to show up.
In the meantime, I will do my best to keep a list here of links verified to work, and ones verified to not work. Please feel free to comment on the post or reblog if you have your own experiences!

Also there has been confirmation that this change affects posts regardless of posting date. So it’ll hide posts made before the update went into affect; expected but good to confirm!

Edit (6/1/2017): working with someone to try to determine why an image is being hidden from the tag regardless of if it has text or a link or anything. The image in question should have worked, we tried reposting, we tried changing the file name, it still didn’t show up. Finally we changed it from a .png to a .jpg and it worked! So we thought we stumbled on something but, i posted one of my images in a test tag, as a jpg, as a png and as a transparent png and all showed up. So sometimes posts arent showing up for other reasons that have yet to be discovered (just because tumblr is shit it would seem)

Edit (6/23/2017):  So it looks like certain links might only show up in certain searches.

in this case the etsy link only showed up in recent, not in popular and not in text posts. 

Also if you wanted to try to include a non linked post in the description such as a url with the dots obfuscated by parenthesis then you have to do both the www(.) and the (.)com, one or the other will still find your post blocked.

in short using any links whatsoever COULD be problematic, using no links at all could be, but will probably increase the chances of your post being seen.

In general Tumblr’s search is absolutely degenerating, seemingly with each passing day.

WHAT TO DO?

It shuts down posts with external links, so at first i assumed internal links would be fine. and they are. if you make a page on your tumblr blog called like /links or something you can certainly link to that. But in that way you run into an issue, tumblr mobile is a piece of shit and cant load tumblr pages, and itll just take you back to the mainblog any time you try.

The best solution ive found so far is put all your relevent links in your blog description like so:

and then in every content post, call tumblr out for being a piece of shit and direct them to the links in your blog description.

Edit: In the top right hand side of photo posts you can click on it and include a single link as “source” that should work if you have one link neccessary. though if you need more you are still SOL. Find it like so:

It will appear in dash format at the bottom left of the post:

in desktop them view where it can be found, or if it can be found, varies by theme.

CONTENT CREATOR SUPPORTERS

It is important now more than ever on this hellsite that you try to support your artist and content creators, reblog as much as possible, look to find them on websites off this piece of shit, and generally do your best to spread the word and support them, since tumblr itself is trying to silence them! 

I HAVE AN ACCOMPANYING POST HERE WITH A VIDEO UPDATE AND INFORMATION PLEASE CHECK IT OUT.

really every smiley is an unmatched parenthesis, but thinking too much about that is probably not conducive to sound mental health

(: is it sweaty :)

Every Unanswered PLL Question from every episode

Since I think the Charles is CeCe reveal is fake, I’m going to watch the show from the beginning and see what questions I have. (Any “answers” given in Game Over, Charles are irrelevant to me because I think they’re fake). All answers given in the show will be bolded with the episode it was answered in, in parenthesis. Just a warning this is going to be long hence the show has over 100 episodes. Also, I have a lot of -A related questions that have never been confirmed. Even during Mona’s reign as -A, some things just don’t add up. I know Marlene says that everything from season 1 and until the end of season 2 is Mona and season 3 starts a new -A, but like I said, some things don’t add up.


Pilot (1x01)
Spencer heard someone scream ‘that night’, who was it?
Why did the Montgomery’s leave Rosewood for a year? To get away from Rosewood after Alison went missing. (2x19)
Did Ezra follow/know Aria was going to be at the Hollis Bar & Grill or was he there coincidentally?
Why did Hanna roll her eyes when she waved to Aria in class?
Who was the blonde in Maya’s (Alison’s) room?
How did Hanna start off in the crowd looking at the chaos of Alison’s house when a body was found then ended up behind Spencer and Aria (behind the crowd)?
What’s the “Jenna Thing”? Alison lit a firecracker in the Cavanaugh’s garage while Jenna and her step brother, Toby, were in it. The firecracker ended up blinding Jenna. Alison told the girls to keep it a secret and they let Toby take the blame for it. (1x02)

How do I tell someone I'm non-binary in Japanese?

if you just want to say “i’m non-binary”, you could say:

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は)Xジェンダーです。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) x-jendaa desu.
en: i’m non-binary.

note that the first part of the sentence is in parenthesis because in Japanese it’s common to drop the subject of the sentence, even though that isn’t the case in English.

that said, if you want to be more specific (and if any of these happen to describe you), you could also say something like:

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は) 無性です。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) musei desu.
en: i’m genderless / agender.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は) 中性です。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) chuusei desu.
en: i’m gender neutral /  an androgyne.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は) 両性です。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) ryousei desu.
en: i’m bigender / ambigender.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は) 不定性です。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) futeisei desu.
en: i’m genderfluid.

the above gender identities are relatively common among non-binary people in Japan. note that 中性 / chuusei can potentially translate into two different genders in English. i’d say it’s commonly used to mean androgyne within the non-binary community, but there’s also a strong association with gender neutrality because 中性的 / chuuseiteki is often used within society in general to mean unisex or gender neutral.

having said all that, just like when speaking English, the person you’re talking to may not be familiar with the above words. in that case, you might need or want to explain what being non-binary means for you.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は) 男性でも女性でもないです。
jp:  (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo josei demo nai desu.
en: i’m neither male nor female.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は) 男性でも女性でもなく、性別はないです。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo josei demo naku, seibetsu wa nai desu.
en: i’m neither male nor female. i have no gender.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は) 男性と女性の間の性です。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei to josei no aida no sei desu.
en: my gender is in between male and female.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は) 男性でもあり女性でもある性です。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo ari josei demo aru sei desu.
en: i’m both male and female.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は)  男性でも女性でもなく、ある性別の間に性自認が変わります
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo josei demo naku, aru seibetsu no aida ni seijinin ga kawarimasu.
en: i’m neither male nor female, my gender identity changes from gender to gender.

日: (俺・僕・私・自分は)  男性でも女性でもなく、 いずれも全く関係ない性です。
jp: (ore / boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo josei demo naku, izuremo mattaku kankei nai sei desu.
en: i’m neither male nor female. my gender is completely unrelated to either of those genders.

……..and i totally took this relatively simple ask and ran away with it. oh well. hopefully it helps you, anon. either way, this post is officially my *points at this* post for future asks. lol

Easy Cleansing Ritual

This ritual doesn’t require special equipment, but feel free to use some that you think are helpful. I will be adding some tips in parenthesis. I do this ritual at least once a week!

  1. The first step, of course, is cleansing the house before yourself. It’s hard to cleanse spiritually if it isn’t cleaned physically. That’s like using a face mask over a muddy face. Pick up stuff laying around, vacuum the floors, put dirty clothes in the wash (or at least in the hamper). You don’t have to scrub the floor with a toothbrush, but you’ll know when you are ready.
  2. Now here begins the fun part! Take a broom, and sweep. But don’t physically touch the ground with the broom. Visualize negative energy in whatever image you want (I use smoke) stagnant on the floor. Now as you sweep over the floor and out the door.
  3. Clap or ring a bell in the air to get out the small amount that is left and fan it outside a door or window.
  4. Now for yourself. Take a bath (in a clean tub), or a shower if you don’t have a bath tub. Add a couple drops of essential oil (a lot will irritate the skin. Cleanse your self thoroughly. Visualize the negative energy coming off your body with the soap. Wash your hair and yourself with something organic, if you can afford it. When you undo the stopper, visualize the bad energy going down the drain.
  5. Now, light some incense, open the window if it’s not uncomfortable outside, wear something loose and comfortable (or skyclad if you like), and meditate. Some people may prefer sleeping as this ritual can take a lot out of you

modern-cryptid  asked:

So I want to get into clipping. but idk how I'd go at it. Is there a certain order I should to the songs in or something you'd recommend?

GOOD ASK!! it really depends on what kind of stuff you’re into, but I think their latest album Splendor & Misery is a good place to start (its my fave album by them so far). Here’s the synopsis:

like…………..i love them

OK SO u should listen to these songs in the order they appear on the album bc its a narrative (u should do that for all of their albums tbh.. im not like a Music Purist but if the band puts their tracks in a certain order they did it for a reason….also use headphones) here is the full album on youtube, tracklist in the description, which is nice bc it preserves the smooth transitions between the songs unlike spotify or bandcamp

If you like Splendor & Misery they have 3 other albums u can listen to:

Wriggle came out last summer, its.. it sounds like the album cover, basically. like a few of these songs legit fluster me to the point where i get embarrassed listening to them around other people LMAO.. anyway its a great lil EP that gets bonus points in my brain bc Cakes da Killa and Antwon have verses on it and i love them both

CLPPNG is from 2014, its the first album i heard by them & it is very close to my heart. I think Get Up is the song that made me a clipping fan, but tbh i like every track on this album save one. Fun Fact the title doesnt have i’s bc daveed didnt write any of it in first person which is pretty cool

Midcity is their first album its rad as shit and harsher/more ear-bleedy than their other ones and i just remembered as i typed that that THIS is actually the first album i heard by them, i listened to it when it first came out and didnt like it because my music taste in 2013 was like, sad indie men in the woods. anyway, get money

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”
