Wait what’s this whole thing of 4chan hijacking Tumblr or something?
Was it over that defiled pony plush that /b/ got a hold of?
I’m just kinda like uh I’m used to triggering images and death threats in tags that initially were used for medical resources thanks to “tucutes” anyways.
I have some weeding through tags to do before I delete this account. In the meantime I’m gonna laugh at both 4chan for being the douchebags they’ve always been and at Tumblr for having more people spreading fear and terror about this than is probably necessary.
It’s a toxic atmosphere for a lot of people. It started out useful for me but now I’ve been forced out of my own safe spaces and I’m growing weary of seeing people make scathing jokes about genocide and murder. I understand venting frustrations when faced with oppression but this is beyond uncalled for and I’m just too old for this place, hahah.
Thank you! I’m always glad to see yours too, I’m happy you made a DA account for your drawings now too! It’s just easier for me to keep up with messages in that format anyway, endless scrolling on Tumblr is not at all effective for me |D And so many artists run a blog filled with more reblogs of random fandom humor (and often sjw stuff unfortunately) that it’s tough to see the art half the time.

Thanks Gemma, I know we’ll still see each other around DA!

Man do I hear you there. Tumblr was never a place I was too attached to, but it started out as a nice resource and a chance to get my art recognized, so I gave it a shot for a while and now I’m ready to let that go. I’ll likely post art as usual but not anything else.
filecreator said: Awh poop. Well in the end, you gotta do what you gotta do man.. Where will you be hanging out from now on?
Thanks dude! I’ll be on DeviantART as usual, and possibly posting art here still too, though I’ll be having to make a new account. I’ll post about it once it’s up and running proper. I just won’t be watching anybody anymore nor posting anything BUT art, and the inspiration blogs I like I’ll just bookmark and check when I have time.
@epigenome said: I don’t blame you one bit; this site is so toxic. If it weren’t for some friends I have here and the nature/science blogs I follow I would have left a long time ago. It only gets worse and worse…
It really has gotten to a point where I feel ill seeing some of the crap that’s become “mainstream” tumblr. I can’t say anything without somebody ripping me a new one for it (even simple opinions on what art styles I like, or what my favorite characters are) and the idea of political correctness here is laughable, so yeah, I agree, it’s too toxic to take it anymore. I can find resources elsewhere. I’ll be bookmarking some of the nature and travel blogs I watch though! They are pretty awesome! I love the inspiration you can find here but not the people!
glacidea said: Sadness. But yeah. Tumblr is full of children. :/
Yeah it’s just not a good safe space for people these days, will be best to get away from those who’ve started to specifically track this blog out of spite. :)
@tassiekitty said: D: Just mechanimator or all of them?
All will be deleted but I am thinking of reviving my art blog separately. Mech is my main blog so I need to delete all to have a clear slate.

Aw I don’t use skype at all anymore |D Way too busy these days, I’m sorry :c Definitely active on deviantART though since I need to be for my customer base!
@smellslikebiskits said: :C will you still be on DA? I don’t have a FA account…
Yes I will bro! <3 Message me anytime if you need to!
Just letting friends know that I’ll be deleting my blog in a week or so. Tumblr’s atmosphere isn’t for me anymore.
