[NEW VIDEO ADDED] #TokioHotel Interview for Capricho TV - Sao Paulo, Brazil [27.08.2015] 


Some bad news...

I’ve been working with this update for about two hours now, and so far I’ve been able to slim it down and make it look a little better, but there’s still a lot of work I have to do – and even after I finish working on it, it’s not going to look much better than it does now.

In the end, I will release this feature, but it’s by no means a “fix” for the new update. I feel terrible for getting your hopes up, only to learn that I can’t do as much as I thought I could. I’m so sorry. —Rachael

Day 4 Prompts

These are the prompts for the fourth day of Phan Week (November 18th, 2015). The goal is to create something with either (or both) of these themes - this includes, but is not limited to, artwork, fic, graphics, gifs, etc.

We assembled the 7 most popular SFW and NSFW prompts based on your votes. We’ve placed them in reverse order of popularity, meaning this set of prompts is the 4th most popular, whereas the prompts for Day 7 of Phan Week will be the most popular. We’ll be announcing the rest of the prompts every day this week, so keep checking back so you can plan and prepare for Phan Week!

Without further ado…

Day 4 SFW Prompt: Fake Dating!

Everyone’s favorite trope! Time to put Dan and Phil in a rom com situation in which it is crucial that they need to pretend to date for Reasons. Of course, this probably ends up with them actually developing feelings, but will they end up together??? Up to you! 

Day 4 NSFW Prompt: Mutual Masturbation!

Who says masturbation needs to just be U + Ur Hand? Why not involve other people’s hands! Teamwork makes the dream work! Your work must include Dan and Phil lending each other a helping hand. 

(Definition just in case: two people touching each others genitals for pleasure and/or orgasm)

Check back tomorrow for the next set of prompts!

Pssssst, if you have no idea what Phan Week is, or just have some questions, click here!

social network platform interface updates - a timeline:

day 1: any noticeable change is met with hostile resistance - the immediate response is “where did my tumblr/facebook/(whatever) go!??! they changed it and now it’s terrible. I don’t want this.”

day 2: “these staffers are trying to ruin what is already working - and why don’t they [insert personal improvement preference here] instead of spending time making things worse?!?”

day 3: the conspiracy theories begin - the man is trying to make it more difficult to communicate effectively, they’re trying to do this and restrict that and it’s all an evil plot etc, or - they will soon be removing accounts that don’t fit with the new regime, or…pick your own flavor of conspiracy subculture.

day 4: less discussion, but there is lingering resentment coupled with a slow descent back into the normal routine, some accounts even accepting certain facets of the change as “maybe ok” or “somewhat acceptable”

day 5: issues of change continue to die down…fewer “threats” to leave and abandon the platform, with a corresponding increase in stoic acceptance

day 6: old-timers start to “remember when we had to make posts with a toothbrush and a pair of scissors? These newcomers don’t know what frontier blog posting was like”

day 7: the new platform is universally accepted (as indicated by a lack of any ongoing dissent), and all is quiet until the next cycle of “improvement”

this seems to be true of any interface really - it’s not restricted to social platforms, or even to a digital interface…
