Why is it that evil villains always find poison to inject into their victims like just literally fill the syringe with air and just stick the needle between their toes or something. It’ll mimic a heart attack and the victim will die pretty quick and NO ONE WILL ASK MANY QUESTIONS BECAUSE IT’LL LOOK LIKE A HEART ATTACK

first of all how do you know this information i feel like the government doesnt want you to know that

you are a pretentious prick who is also a transphobic piece of trash, go to hell

There is so much of this stuff in my ask box, and most of it not even anonymous, but I don’t want to call out any particular user because I know they’ll then get a lot of hateful asks and the cycle will just continue.

First off, there’s a comma splice in your ask. I just have to let you know that, on account of how I’m a pretentious prick.

I hope that I’m not transphobic. I’ve been public and vocal in my support for the rights of trans people for years, and I’ve tried over the years to amplify trans voices, from T Cooper to Stephen Ira Beatty, rather than pretending to be able to speak for them. 

Look, I am a person, and I am not a particularly good one. I am screwed up and make a lot of mistakes. But I am not a piece of trash. I would imagine that you are also screwed up and make a lot of mistakes, but you aren’t a piece of trash either.

But it is still hurtful—very hurtful—to hear people call me a piece of trash. It just makes me sad to hear, the way I think it would make most people sad to hear. The certainty and lack of nuance in that characterization reflects a broader lack of nuance in online discourse these days that just bums me out. 

i’m not even really a fan of john green but i just dont get why everybody attacks the guy so much

Do you know what CD stands for? Compact Disc. Do you say Compact or Sompact? “See-dee” makes no sense; should obviously be “kuh-dee”.

tumblr suggestion

i-am-dallas:

I would like the ability (without using x-kit and the like) to filter all posts on my dashboard by the post type, such as text, image, quote, link, chat, audio, video.

The fact that I can’t filter posts makes me not want to follow more people because it will just clutter up my dashboard even…

>Good UI
>deconstruction of Tumblr

There are a lot of things you have to consider to implement filtering options on a huge website like Tumblr. Some considerations:

  • processing time: more complex database queries take longer to handle, and tiny inefficiencies scale up to enormous timesinks on huge websites. the less sorting freedom your user has, the easier it will be to give them their data.
  • creators: if you give the user a lot of power to hide specific content, then content creators might start losing views. if they get fed up enough, they’ll find a different distribution platform that better suits their needs, and the content viewers will inevitably follow them away.
  • priorities: advanced post filtering is a bonus feature for pro users, but it is not a selling point for tumblr. it won’t make a big difference in terms of attracting or retaining users.

All that said, I really wish more sites would take the approach used by MediaWiki (i.e. the thing that powers Wikipedia, Wikia, etc). MediaWiki lets users create scripts to do pretty much whatever they want. They’re done in Javascript, so they can do pretty much anything that a browser extension like xkit can do. Sites like Wikipedia then pick the most useful or widely used scripts and make them easily available from the user preferences page.

Users could enable Tumblr-vetted scripts with the check of a box, or add other scripts they find (or write) without much difficulty. These scripts are stored serverside, so they work on pretty much any device (imagine xkit on tablets and maybe phones). Tumblr only has to create the code that stores scripts on their servers and unobfuscate their pre-existing Javascript, and the community will take care of the rest. Crowdsourcing is the solution to everything yo.
