Together, let's help the Tumblr community

in #partiko3 years ago (edited)

Dear Steemians and Partiko family,

Partiko has always been, and always will be about the community, and we truly believe that the power always lies within the community (That's why we built Partiko Messaging! Yaay!). As you might have heard over the past few days, there has been a large community on the internet that has been once again targeted by centralization - that community being the adult content community on Tumblr.

Tumblr is a blogging website that allows you to post anything you're interested in. In a way it’s very similar to Reddit and Partiko, because it also allows users to attach tags to their posts. According to statista, Tumblr had over 440 million blogs in October 2018.

Adult content? Let's face it, it's EVERYWHERE. It's inevitable and you can even find it on Steem. In fact the entire online video industry has to thank the adult industry for the tremendous demand it has created through adult content live streaming. It has pushed the boundary of video technology, and it has made it possible for platforms like YouTube and DTube to exist.

Unfortunately people have become too accustomed to using centralized platforms where changes occur constantly and the interests of the community are almost always disregarded. That’s why decentralized platforms are so strongly needed, as it gives power back to the community.

There's NO single party who has the right to abandon any community, the people has.

We were super frustrated to hear that Tumblr was abandoning their users (read the story here), and that's why we as a decentralized community, should stand up and help!

It's time to let Tumblr and websites like it know the power of community!

To help the Tumblr community, Partiko has already made a tool available to allow existing Tumblr users save their content. If you have Tumblr friends who are affected, please don't hesitate to let them know!

It's finally time for us to change the world.

Onwards and upwards,
Partiko team

I also Truly believe that power always should lies within the community.

Always appreciate the way and which @partiko team goes and does their business.

We all love Partiko in our DtubeFamily777 and it’s allowing us to make our Steem journey simpler and more convenient.

Super excited for your initiative to help Tumblr community and this will add HUGE value to STEEM Blockchain.

Keep up the good work and I’m always here to help :)

Thank you friends of @partiko, always waiting to help others, it is a form of integration, unity, good work.

Great job @partiko, in case you need some free STEEM accounts, I've already claimed some dozens. Just give me a hint if you need them to give it to the tumblr users.

Awesome! We will definitely let you know! Hopefully you will get a chance to try out Partiko soon!

Hello @partiko good idea bringing this subject up. We are busying working on the "photo" side to our adult platform built on top of Steem. We couldn't agree more with what you've said here.

Awesome! Let's spread the word in the Tumblr community!

Posted using Partiko Android

You should be commenting and inviting all adult creators from Tumblr. ..

It's your golden chance. .

Yes, we've been actively engaging when we can!

All I am saying is don't hold back ..this is the time for which to have kept your powder dry !!

Write a medium post how you will support all the Tumblr Refugees !!

Good idea. We hadn't thought about Medium and even a Tumblr! So far its been Twitter/Reddit. Great suggestion!

Tumblr is in meltdown mode right now and creators are considering even paid platforms !!

your time to shine !!

We'll be getting on medium shortly to write something up! We'll need some support!

Amazing... let's talk with @oracle-d to call Jeff to action! And let's make some noise with @promo-steem about this. I'm in at 1000%

Peace V!

Let's make some noise!

Posted using Partiko Android

I'll talk with the guys now... let's make it!

This post has been included in today's SOS Daily News - a digest of all you need to know about the State of Steem.

Among all enthousiastic replies I would like to ventilate that sharing porn pics/movies is inevitable but we should certainly not promote it. It may also scare of existing users.

We have to definitely think about the existing users! Thank you so much for the reminder!

I will share this on twitter and tag tumblr so that whosoever reads this will be tempted to join. All the best to partiko and steemit

Awesome! Thanks for helping us spread the word!

Partiko you’re amazing!

Very good application, millions of people are taking advantage of it, if the video of the Dtube also begins to upload, then we will get a lot of help.

Posted using Partiko Android

This is great!

I have a lot of friends who are sex workers of various types and know lots of people in the sexual wellbeing world.... they’re all going to be affected by this.

I’ve already told them to move across to Steem and to set up Discord servers.

I’ll pass this on to them!!! Great initiative!

Awesome! Definitely pass it along! We can help them bootstrap new Steem accounts by delegating to them!

I have not been using my tumblr for a longer time. Simply no time to join everywhere. As I understand this is only about porn and childabuse/porn which is also forbidden (officially at Facebook and Twitter). To be honest I do not see any reason to publish it worldwide, besides of the fact child porn is forbidden. There are plenty exceptions so if you are creative you can use them to ad pictures to the story (the story is not forbidden). I just do not understand why female nipples are forbidden and male are not. Sounds like discrimination if you ask me.

This is awesome!

Together we can achieve a lot of things! I don't know any Tumblr users that are not in Steem already but if know of someone I'll let them know.

Great message! Awesome guys ❤

Thanks SO much for this. A large number of friends in the polyamorous community are being effected by this, and we're all pretty pissed about it. A fair bunch have set ourselves reminders to specifically delete our tumblrs on Dec. 17th, because screw these guys.

I've been trying to figure out a way to onboard the poly community to dApps, because I think they would find Steem a wonderful thing for many purposes. This is going to make it -much- easier.

If you can figure out an easy conversion for Facebook groups; I'll dance at your weddings, batmitzvas, the defeat of your enemies, you name it. xP

We can totally start with Tumblr first!

It's a little known fact that p0rn was the driving force behind the growth of the internet, accounting for the vast majority of technological and infrastrural development we presently enjoy.

Given that fact, it would be extremely churlish to fail to provide for those very communities to whom we owe our present global communications facility the censorship resistant platforms necessary for them to continue their good work.

100 % truth to this.


I'm on Tumblr and have lodged my protest. We need sites with liberal content rules to keep the creative edge going

Good to know! Do you know if there's a good place to find all the people that need help?

Posted using Partiko Android

wow, super smart, nice work

YES!!! That tool makes it more than just ‘talk’ - you guys rock. I’m going to look into it in a few hours. Let’s get the Tumblrs on Partiko :D

Maybe a good opportunity for the team behind engrave?

This is great....downside may be the lengthy wait to get new members approved.

Posted using Partiko Android

Good point!

Posted using Partiko Android

My first reaction was mimmicking Carlos Matos but saying "I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE PARTIKOOOOOOOOO" xDDDDD

But now I am having the doubt that the doesn't provide any clue about what will the tool be doing -from the user point of view, not technically- after clicking the MIGRATE button.

Cool! Do you have any suggestions?

Posted using Partiko Android

I have replied via Discord. But I could also post it here:

"The only thing I found it is missing is let user know what will happen after clicking the MIGRATE button. Just that. Finally I clicked it and fount it by myself. However I would have liked that there is a text explaining that the tool will create a mirror of the blog itself on the Partiko website."

Check the website and let us know if it's any better?

Posted using Partiko Android

That's better. Thank you

Thank YOU for the feedback!
