SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
Guess who got their dark Jack wig~?
An old Jack Frost picture that I’ll probably never finish. I just wanted to draw Jack putting on some armour…
He looks ready to fight some fearlings ;3
Theories: Pitch can turn children into Fearlings and he was also planning on turning Jamie into one.
or he wanted to kill Jamie, which also works
im sorry but the fuck is a “Fearlings” that shit scared me.
I never actually thought about pitch wanting to turn Jamie into a nightmare… Freaky stuff o.o
Fearlings: shadows basically. in the books, Pitch was a general who hunted and captured the fearlings, because they caused nightmares to children. One day they mimicked the voice of Pitch’s daughter to trick him into opening the cages Pitch had locked them in, and once they were free they devoured everything he knew until all he remembered was pain and fear. He wanted to do this to Jamie.
Pitch concept art!
Nr.1 is probably the one I like the most..
I tired out different styles of clothing.. Since the story circles around the 1800, I thought that Pitch would probably be pretty slow with the fashion.. Or maybe not even caring at all.
but…the 3rd would be so fun to make @.@
I have fallen in love with the idea of Dark!Jack. So sexy.
((I love this))
