For everyone’s information:

The plan for the 17th, when the adult content ban comes in, is to protest.

To do that, we are making as much noise either side of the 17th as possible, and using the site as normal.

On the 17th, dead silence.

People are saying log off but what they really mean is don’t open the site or the app.

But, on the 17th make as much noise as possible on every other platform. Tweet about it and post on facebook and instagram and everywhere else.

What this does is causes a massive dip in ad revenue for one single day. That does not make staff think ‘oh everyone’s gone let’s shut down.’ What it actually makes them think is ‘oh shit people aren’t happy and if people don’t keep using our site we’re out of money and out of jobs.’

A boycott reminds a company that the users (consumers) have the power to make their site (business) worthless with one single coordinated decision.

If you want to join in, here’s what to do:

Do:

  • Close all open instances of the app and site on all your devices before the 17th
  • Make posts before and after the 17th on tumblr and other platforms, talking about why this ban is bad
  • Make posts on other sites during the 17th. Flood the official tumblr staff twitter and facebook with your anger and your opinion
  • Come back on the 18th and check in

Don’t:

  • Delete the app from your phone (this doesn’t affect their revenue and since it’s off the store at the moment it’ll be hard to get back)
  • Delete your account. I mean you can if you want to, but if you keep your account and don’t use it you’re saying to staff that there’s still time to save it. If you delete it’s hard work to come back.
  • Open the app or website (including specific blogs)
  • Make any posts (turn down/off your queue and make sure nothing is scheduled)
  • Go quiet elsewhere. Make it clear that this is just about tumblr, not a mass move away from all social media.

Remember: the execs don’t care about anything but money. Shutting down the site means there’s $0 further income from it. That’s their last possible course of action. If we make it clear we’re not happy, they’ll have to do something or we can do more and more until it becomes too expensive.

Protests take commitment. They’re a defiant action against a business that is doing something wrong. They will try to scare you into not participating, because they’re scared. We hold all the power here, sometimes the execs just need to be reminded of that.

Join my TRPG Playtest Server

dungeonmemester:

So, Tumblr might die tomorrow. I don’t plan on going anywhere, but I might be losing my biggest platform for Project TOF, the new Tabletop Role Playing Game I’ve been developing.

I had intended to wait until the first playtest draft was ready to launch before opening this server, but seeing as my main social platform for TOF might die tomorrow, I’ve had to throw this together ahead of launch. It’s admittedly rushed, so I apologize in advance as things get moved around/set up.

I hope you’ll join me on the Project TOF Discord Server.
(Note: You must be a member of the server for 10 minutes before it will allow you to post)

Things are happening!! Playtest documents are being figured out!! Come join me as I attempt to make a game that’s everything I wanted D&D to be!

Preparing for the Future/The Collective’s Publ…

wearepaladin:

I come back from vacation in Puerto Vallarta for one day and its CHAOS. Well, I honestly don’t want to get into the whole nonsense, but at this point it would be irresponsible to ignore the possibility that this branch of Social Media might not work as the Collective’s primary branch in the near future. In the face of that uncertainty, some changes will have to be mae.

First and foremost, The Collective has made a new public Discord for posting news and content and should it be necessary where you will all interested learn where we’ve set up shop. So, with much thanks for @we-are-lawyer and the others, We’ve chosen to make a public Discord Community. We invite you all to join, and I hope you all take the time to join us and that this community we’ve built continues to grow in positive ways. Regardless, walk in the Light my friends.

Welcome to the Collective.
