Is there an agreed upon trigger warning tag on Tumblr for gifs that might cause seizures?

I don’t understand this “Tumblr changed absolutely nothing” fuss. It was called a “maintenance” downtime. They didn’t call it a “feature update” downtime.
Also something did change, there’s a 100+ new posts notification bug even if it’s just a few new posts. So if you need to complain about something, talk about that.

This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while and I finally decided to try to put into words what I feel. I should reiterate that this is not meant for a specific person, I’m talking about having observed some Tumblr behavior in the past year or so, please do not feel that I’m pointing a finger at you.
In short; Tumblr bullying is probably the one thing I hate about Tumblr. If you have been fortunate enough not to see it then that’s awesome but lately I see it more and more and I don’t like it.
What do I mean by Tumblr bullying? I mean by rebloging or posting something (and tagging it, you know what I’m talking about) in your Tumblr meant specifically to humiliate or make the person who did the original post feel bad about their post. I’m not talking about someone posting something about rape being OK and Tumblr jumps to defend it. I’m talking if you specifically seeing something you don’t like about a show, a film, and actor, music etc and you just feel the need to reblog it and tell all your followers how shitty this is, or how much this ship sucks and you can’t believe anyone ships it or how stupid the person who made this is or how much their graphics sucks, how shitty a GIF is, etc.
You’ve done that with the deliberate intent of making the person who enjoyed it or made it feel shitty about what they like or what they’ve done and sent it out to the mass of people that follow you (be it 10 or 20,000) so they can all agree with you and you all can complain about it. And maybe even ends up with some of them sending that one person anon messages about how stupid they are.
I don’t like it and I’ll tell you specifically why; many a people who are here in Tumblr are quite young, I’m talking about 15 and under. That makes you young; it’s OK, it’s wonderful to be young please don’t ever take it as an insult, if it’s meant as an insult the person who said it is a bit bitter that they’re not your age and could do things over in their life. When you’re young and impressionable and sometimes insecure and you’ve sat there and done a little gif set that might not be as nice and you’d like it to be and some a-hole reblogs it and comments on how bad it is -that hurts. Or when you like a ship but they’ve broken up and someone just reblogs your art telling you how stupid you are for shipping it that fucking hurts.
And that same a-hole who told you this is posting about slut-shamming, religious freedom, world peace and gay right yet they’re posting or agreeing with someone who just put down a 15 year old because their GIFs are shitty or because the ship of their choice is stupid etc.
You’ve got to make up your mind; and I’m not telling ANYONE what to post in their blog, but if one moment you’re all like Tumblr political activist and the next moment you’re all look “look at this stupid fuck and their stupid likes in movies that movie SUCKS and you know NOTHING about films!” then you’re contradicting yourself. You’ve just made someone feel like shit for them enjoying something that you don’t. How is that different than making someone feel like shit because they like boys instead of girls? The point is that you’ve deliberately just shitted all over someone, maliciously, be it by your intent or not. Don’t do that shit.
We all joined Tumblr because we enjoyed something, we never joined Tumblr to be attacked or to not feel good enough for something or that your opinion doesn’t count or that your opinion is less than mine because you know less than I do.
I hate for anyone who follows me to ever feel that I’ve made them think that they know nothing or that they suck for whatever reason. I didn’t join Tumblr to ‘teach people’ on the contrary I find that Tumblr is always the one teaching me stuff, and that’s perfectly OK because I’ve yet to learn so much out of life and of movies and music and history etc.
So what I’m asking if that you stop and think before you send out an anon message or stop and think before you reply unnecessarily rude to a message because you might feel quite confident in yourself and your life but that other person might not and you never know what that person is thinking or what bad thoughts they’ve had about themselves.
You can’t be that angry all the time, you just can’t. There are plenty of legitimate things in their world to get pissed off about and there’s things that are really not worth it.
That’s all, getting off my pulpit.
I hope you all have a lovely day! :)
I think if you reblog something from me that I tweeted too, you tweet the same thing I did. If you have Send to Twitter checked probably.
Just a warning in case you get pissed that Tumblr suddenly tweets something you didn’t write yourself.

Because Missing-e is connected to your browser - not your account. I only have M-e installed on Chrome. So as a test I logged on using IE, Safari and Firefox. And I still had the message telling me to ‘uninstall’ M-e. Yet my second account, which I’ve only ever used on FF, and is not connected to my email address, does not have the message at all.
Never mind the fact that I didn’t even have Missing-E INSTALLED on three browsers, and yet the message still popped up on all of them - even after closing it again - is proof of this.
Sort your shit out tumblr
Thanks to Maurice Cherry for bringing this to our attention.
OK I just got the popup from Tumblr about Missing e’s privacy/performance issues and wants me to uninstall it lest I lose the right to get support from them. I dunno, Tumblr hasn’t been all that supportive and it’s Missing e that helps me cope with their shortcomings and restrictions. So, to echo the original post, kindly sort your crap out, Tumblr.
