THERE’S NOTHING AUTOMATED ABOUT ME, MEATBAG.
MY WHOLE WAY OF THING HAS JUST BEEN STAMPED INTO THE GROUND
I’M CRYING I CHECKED IT TUMBLR BOT IS A PERSON HELP I CAN’T BREATHE
GREATEST PLOT TWIST ON TUMBLR
if tumblr was bought out for $1.1B and there are 60 million blogs that means each blog is worth $18.3
my blog is worth more than i am
Well actually it would cost anywhere between $5,000 - $250,000 to hire an assassin to kill you so chin up hun, you are worth so much more than $18.30
first the body parts comparison now the assassins thank you tumblr
THE MOST FRUSTRATING THING ABOUT THE NEW LAYOUT IS BEING LIKE “OH I LIKE THIS POST LEMME SCROLL BACK TO REBLOG IT” AND THEN YOU’RE LIKE “OH” WHEN YOU SEE THAT FUCKING BLANK SPOT AT THE TOP
The irony is, it’s actually more convenient, we just hate change
It’s not convenient if you scroll using the j and k buttons, though.
I went on Google to look up more about this Yahoo buying Tumblr nonsense, and one of the comments on the article said this.
I love how the homestucks are separated into their own category
we have literally created our own dialogue? language? here on tumblr and i think that is the most amazing thing ever
please disregard my shitty editing skills
no listen this is actually really amazing because this is a real thing. i think this counts as a pidgin language. a pidgin language is basically a changed, simplified version of a language. you can change the spellings of words, pronunciation, grammar rules, or even make up new words. i think. i’d have to research it a bit more to be sure but i’m 90% sure this is right. if its not a pidgin language, then its a lingua franca but thats more used for trade and stuff like that. but still a new language. so yes, we’ve created our own language. we’ve changed the whole sentence structure. we can trail off sentences, say things like “i just cant”, and use words like ship, OTP, fic, fandom, feels, and ship names and everyone will understand what you’re saying. the part that i love most is how people go “OMGH IM CRIIY NIG SOIOO HARD” and understand each other. for example “IM LIUA GHMNIG”. that one was incredibly easy, but if you knew that said “I’m laughing”, congratulations. You speak a pidgin language. we can even say stuff like “Does anyone know of a Johnlock fic, at least 20k words, not a WIP, with no OCs, and is Post-Reichenbach? Or just a Destiel PWP would be great.” To someone not on tumblr, that wouldn’t make any sense. but you understood, didn’t you? One characteristic of a pidgin language is that you have to learn it like a second language. Another characteristic is that it is frequently changing. tumblr goes through many trends with how we talk. if i remember correctly, when i first made an account about two years ago, talking like this wasn’t quite as common. also, that thing of suddenly capitalizing your sentence is fairly recent. you know, when people go “the new epISODE IS TOMORROW”. Like one of the people up there said, all of this is awesome because how else do you easily show emotion and tone over the internet? we’ve even made a whole sense of humour that most people here share in. There’s so much more that I could talk about with this, but i’m tired and i may be entirely wrong about everything. but yes. people on the fandom side of tumblr who speak like this are speaking a new language
I now declare that saying “I speak tumblr” is acceptable when being asked what languages you know
Guess what kids, Tumblr is a website full of lots of incredibly toxic people who glorify mental illness and fetishize homosexuality, not to mention the fact that death threats get thrown around here every time anyone says an opinion on anything, whether or not its popular. We did it kids. We climbed this whole mountain of human garbage wow.
