Fair Warning… I may not continue to blog ORIGINAL posts FROM Tumblr

August 9, 2011

Tumblr has suddenly decided to add certain features that the wonderful Missing e browser extension had, but they’re effing up the features completely, making good features horrible. Example:

You ALL will probably notice that the tags run all the way off to the right if there’s a lot of tags on a blog post. They (being Tumblr) expects you to click & drag the tags to see all of them. With Missing e, you could just see ALL the tags without having to do any of that. They were nicely wrapped & easy to read. But dumbass Tumblr once again finds a way to make itself worse.

If you read the tagged “Missing e” posts, you’ll see what other stuff is being messed up for everyone on Tumblr.

I’m just really fed up with Tumblr, so it’s very likely that in the near future, I will only reblog things on Tumblr, but post original things from my Buzznet blog and import them to this Tumblr one… Buzznet doesn’t have the issues Tumblr has, frankly. Feel free to join me there if you like.

I’m not abandoning my Tumblr right now, but I will in the future if Tumblr keeps this up. I already have a large portion of my Tumblr blog posts over on Buzznet as well, so I won’t be wanting for Tumblr in that regard.

I’ll soon reblog in full what is wrong with Tumblr and how it’s now making shitty versions of Missing e’s features now…

Looks like Tumblr has now added a feature to allow you to see all tags on a dashboard post. Instead of wrapping the tags like in the Missing e Dashboard Fixes feature, you are instead expected to click and drag the tags in order to see the ones that are hidden past the end of a post. Unfortunately, this means that the wrapping done by the Dashboard Fixes feature no longer works correctly. It would be best for Missing e users to disable the “Show all tags for posts in the dashboard” feature for now. Read this post to learn how to access the Missing e settings. If Missing e does ever find its way back, I will apply a fix to force wrapping instead of this, less convenient (in my humble opinion) feature Tumblr has rolled out. Running tally of Missing e features that have found their way into Tumblr’s core: If you notice any other Missing e features being implemented in Tumblr’s core, please let me know. Reblog Tags (from the Better Reblogs feature) Tumblr’s implementation does not preserve the order of tags from the original post Tumblr does not allow opt-out of this feature, nor does it allow users to reblog tags by choice (it is always automatic) Maximum Font Sizes (from the Dashboard Fixes feature) Tumblr’s implementation forces all <big> tags to increase font size more than once (instead of allowing a maximum font size) Show All Tags (from the Dashboard Fixes feature) Tumblr’s implementation does not wrap tags, but requires that you click and drag the tags left and right to see all of them
Honestly, tumblr, you stupid bitch. If you’re going to implement these things, DO THEM RIGHT. Not some half-assed, f**ked-up, inconvenient imitations of these features. Can you not understand the simple, basic concepts that these modifications were for simplicity and ease of use? That means NOT WITH A TON OF EXTRA CLICKING, YOU IGNORANT BUFFOONS. God. What dumbasses. You’re really rivalling Livejournal for being a bunch of stupid dumbf**ks, I swear.
What they said above. So bad, lol… I swear, Tumblr is beginning to go down the same path that MySpace was. But now they’re taking features from someone else without permission. And they aren’t even implemented as nicely. I hope Jeremy Cutler can sue the sh*t out of Tumblr and just take it over himself. It’s clear David Karp doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing… →
