“In terms of total votes, Democrats have cemented the largest margin of victory in midterm election history — some 9 million votes over Republicans, breaking a record set after the Watergate scandal in 1974.”

Trump’s coattails were more like an anchor.

The blue wave midterm is the best thing about 2018. People showed up to deliver a blow to Trumpism. The fight isn’t over, but there’s a real counterweight now. And we all have the comfort of knowing that so many people of good will showed up to say no to that monster.

Thanks to that, there’s the Democratic majority in Congress, which is gonna fight like hell. And the signs of rebellion among the Republicans against Trump re: his craven covering up for MBS ordering Jamal Khashoggi’s murder. That only happened because of this. They were willing to support anything as long as he was a winner.

Now he’s a loser, and all of us made him one.

As we say goodbye to 2018 this is one major, major thing to feel hopeful about. There’s so much that needs to be done on a number of issues, most critically climate change, as soon as we can get this guy out of office. But there is cause for hope heading into the new year and a lot of decent ordinary people across the US who I wish happiness with all my heart.

terrifying to see people i follow here get flagged as nsfw. do you have another platform you could move to just in case? you’re one of my fave bloggers tbh

Aw, thank you! That’s so nice of you to say. 

I did sign up for a dreamwidth account, same name, but I’ll probably only use it for updates. I also remembered that I do actually have a pillowfort.io account, again, same name, never used it before but if that comes up anytime soon. I’ll probably start crossposting, whatever happens with Tumblr. But I might just start a new Tumblr, I don’t know. If I do, I’ll mention it on one of the other accounts.

Edit: Oh, I hadn’t realized pillowfort.io was up. But gif limit 2MB? Maybe no crossposting, lol.

some people’s blogs are being incorrectly flagged as being explicit so if you would like to check your status, you can look it up on postlimit.com.

if you have been incorrectly marked as nsfw, you can appeal before tumblr permanently filters you as such and your blog is set back to default settings prior to december 18th here.

@sango-blep your SFW blog was flagged btw!

also @ocean-quing you’re on here as well

Why the fuck am I on here?

Lol at how the Tumblr old timers talk about when they joined and it’s so frequently 2011. You know why that is?

Glee.

@staff, I never asked for an invisibility cloak

telanu:

Fun fact: my blog can no longer be found by searching the website. You can find me on mobile only by entering “telanu” into the search bar, and even then my blog doesn’t appear as an option. You have to tap “Go to telanu” above the list of suggested blogs that actually appear in search, and then you’re taken to my blog. But for the website, I’m turning up nada. Even my own posts don’t turn up when I search for my name.

NB: I have not selected the setting that hides my blog from search results.

This is a fun and exciting new time for all of us!

I’ve noticed this for other completely sfw posters too.

Why did you delete a bunch of your posts?

booasaur:

I didn’t, but it seems that everything I requested to be reviewed is now marked as my latest posts so you’ll have to go back a few pages. Probably. It seems the post order is jumbled for a lot of people. As of right now, you can go to page 6 on my blog to see the latest posts.

If you’re on anon, you probably won’t see this because it’ll be sent to page 6 so I’ll try to modify my bio and/or my ask page.

So I think my reasoning there was wrong. I don’t really know why the posts are in the order that they are, some of them were never reviewed. So it’s just reviewed posts, new posts, random old posts, reviewed posts, new posts…

Why is my /archive for the last seven years only the flagged posts?

“We’re passing this along to our engineers for investigation.  Depending on the severity of the root cause, a fix might take longer than expected, so thanks for hanging tight while they look into it.“

You know, instead of the much more important task of hypocritically getting rid of a bunch of vulnerable people.

Can other people also look into their archives and see if they’re behaving as they should and if not, send in a support ticket?

Lol.

So other people are like, how can I easily find which posts of mine are flagged? I can’t go through all thousands of them!

Unlike you unlucky bastards, if I go to my blog’s home page, I can ONLY SEE FLAGGED POSTS. Nothing else. I mean, it sucks if I or anybody else wants to see the thousands of posts that never got flagged. Forget them, though. Isn’t that the point of this whole exercise? To make sure that ONLY the nsfw posts are available?
