Tumblr just rolled out an update that makes a few things better while incidentally making the site totally inaccessible for what seems to be a non-negligible fraction of its userbase.

Not that that sounds familiar or anything.

Hello friends! How are you? What have you been up to?

I GUESS IT'S NICE THAT TUMBLR IS SO DEDICATED TO MAKING THEIR USERS' EXPERIENCES AS CONSTANTLY FRUSTRATING AS POSSIBLE!

i finally quit tumblr a month or so ago and don't regret it at all haha

my one friend was complaining about how reblog replies and blockquotes in general are now formatted and how u can't delete some comments but keep others while reblogging and I went and looked and then ran away again

Lamenting when Tumblr's UX was merely execrable and counterintuitive, as opposed to the torturous, maddening, needlessly-Byzantine and almost comically depressingly light-navy blue hell website that it's become.

Thinking about posting here more.

Moderate to significant quantities of angst, RP and Homestuck fanfic.

Yo. I will probably keep using it, b/c that's where I find all my hockey friends, but... I'm sort of tapping my fingernails for the next great fandom migration.

Hey, you're back! Looks like the Tumblr update improved things (for my DW reading page)!

I pretty much only post on DW things I can see myself permalinking to at least three media cycles later, so pretty much all my linkdumps are in Tumblr or Facebook, leaving this mostly for creative writing and brainstorming ideas (many often triggering and extremely politically incorrect simply due to the scarcity of people who would likely read it, but you probably know that already).

I actually don't terribly mind the twitter-esque comment formatting, but that's mostly because I don't suffer the issues that make it inaccessible for other people (and I like having the little userpics next to people's comments - helps humanize them a bit).
