Tumblr: *rolls out “best stuff first”*
on the one hand this is a joke post because lol i have never made a good post in my life, but also, if i hadn’t made the connection
between this update and my sudden nosedive in activity, i would have been really fucking discouraged about all the shit i’ve been working on lately. i guarantee there are people on tumblr right now who haven’t made that connection, and who are trying to figure out why suddenly no one likes anything they’ve made. and that fucking sucks.
Reminder to go into your settings and turn off ‘Best Stuff First’ because my activity’s tanked a couple days ago for no reason so this stuff IS happening.
You WILL miss content with that setting on.
i ain’t joking when i say that my activity looks JUST like this too and i wasn’t sure why
I can only find the option on the app under Settings > Dashboard Preferences.
To support content creators do us a favour and turn off “Best stuff first”. Open the tumblr app (Android or iOs) and go to “Settings > Dashboard Preferences. And please reblog this post, so that everybody will see this. Thank you very much!
Wow tumblr thanks?
y’all. please turn off that feature. It’ll really help content creators like me
Ok so it wasn’t just my imagination??? Tumblr, you’re a di… ngus.
I don’t have the option on my Dashboard setting yet. (And I don’t even have a Tumblr app anymore) But if you do, please turn “Best stuff first” off for all the creators.
Hey guys, I never reblog stuff but this is important. Most of tumblr traffic comes from mobile. Switch this option off to help content creators. It sucks to be put on the bottom of the dash and having our work never seen.
@staff Please, even if just privately, explain this update? Please? These are -popular- blogs. blogs that had a lot of activity.
What d’ya think it’ll do to new blogs, people just starting? Or smaller blogs that had just started getting an influx?
I’m sorry but this seems rally rather unfair and biased. I understand the marketing drive, the whole thought process behind it.
I’m asking why it was considered a good choice? Something that would benefit everyone, or even the greatest crowd?
All it does is create a dichotomy between really really popular blogs and everyone else. Kudos to the popular kids, but some of us are too shy, too small.
I dunno, maybe I’m just rambling into space and no one will see, or something.
What do I know anyways, I can’t even use the queue properly.
@staff Thanks … best stuff first made Rowdy sad.
