I've been using Tumblr for years and I love it and I love the community. Recently (since the last update) half of the blogs I follow have been censored out. I figured some glitch happened since most of them haven't even said a bad word in their lives. I restarted the app and it was the same. So I went to settings, thinking for some reason, safety mode is on. I couldn't find anyway to turn it off even after I went to help to get a step by step instruction on where it would be. If anyone else has had this problem and figured out how to fix it, please mention it here. And if staff knows what that is please help. I'll delete this after it gets fixed. I love you Tumblr and this made me really sad.
Okay, so here's my prob. I wanna turn off the 'safe mode' shyt. It's freakingly annoying. I might not be over 18 but there are posts which are appropriate for my age and it's labeled unsafe or whatever you call it. It's not your right to decide what posts I can view and what I can't, you're not my parent. I noe you're doing this for a greater good but everybody has their preference. So do your job and allow us to have an option to switch off the safe mode. I'm sure you're receiving more complaints than praising from the users on this topic, I guess? Srsly, you're juz destroying your own app.
Posts are randomly labelled as "NSFW" (Not Safe For Work) in the new update, even on photographs of a fully clothed cuddly toy! Also the uploading system is a mess. The system says "something goofed, please try again later", then uploads the same post 3 times! Porn bots with real NSFW images are still following me and other blogs. The porn bots are also adding links to NSFW websites to many popular posts. Selfies of ordinary people are being hijacked by porn bots too, sort THAT out too please!
I hate the fact that it's harder to turn the safe mode off and on. There use to be this little lock that allowed you to simply change it. Now that you removed it you made it harder for me to do it. In fact I can't even find a way to disable the Safe Mode. It's really frustrating. Please try and ask if us users want the change beforw changing it out of nowhere.
I love tumblr, and the app used to work great. Thing is, now it won't let me log onto my tumblr from the app, and the only reason I can find is that my account isn't connected to a yahoo email (I've always used my Gmail account with my tumblr, and that used to work fine). This is ridiculous. I've been using tumblr for a long time, but this is the sole reason I'm only giving it two stars. You need to fix this.
Honestly the app was eh on mobile, especially due to the lack of configurability (on settings) it has compared to the desktop site, for instance, you were not able to turn off having your likes being public for a long while. Now safe mode was just added, and it blocks posts that support LGBT+ and minorities, yet I still see NSFW items in my dash. There seems to be no way to turn it off now in mobile. Absolutely horrid update.
