I thought the Tumblr image about "fandom leaving me behind" was a bit too negative to be the infobox graphic, so I moved it back. --Awils1 09:49, 3 September 2011 (UTC)


Question: Should this page be in the new Category:Microblogs? Or is that cat for specific fan tumblrs and twitters etc only? It makes sense to me for this page to be in it. -- Tai 01:42, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

I think it's fine to include Tumblr in the category, so I added it.--æþel 00:40, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

tumblr fic traditions

I'm not sure if photofic is the right term, but there seems to be a trend on Tumblr where one person posts a screencap or gif or something, and then someone else is inspired to create a ficlet related to the image. I can't tell if it's part of a specific challenge or if people are just randomly inspired to write fic on Tumblr or if the fic writers are the ones posting the images with the fic, but it would be an interesting topic to cover on Fanlore.--æþel 04:58, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

There's also something where people write a collaborative drabble through the hashtags. See: --Anenko 09:33, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Some things to add to the page

That I haven't figured out where to put yet:

Tumblr management/technical changes 2021 and 2022

again, making a section on the talk page b/c i don't know how best to organize the information/add it on the page. but, this page seems to be documenting changes to the policies and usage of the website and there have been some pretty big ones in the past ~year, after a few years of quiet since the 2018 ban.
