• Tumblr Evacuation Manifest - Need Help Gathering Artist Galleries


    With the change in Tumblr policy that is affecting not only NSFW creators but SFW creators due to Tumblr's horribly buggy flagging system many creators are leaving the site and are setting up shop elsewhere. Whether that be deviantart, Twitter, Furaffinity, or wherever the exodus has already begun.

    The problem is it can be hard to locate where your favorite artists may have relocated to. This puts artists in a precarious situation as a lot of them used Tumblr as their homebase where they have the greatest number of their fans.

    To hopefully make the evacuation in the coming days a bit easier I have started a prototype Google Sheet that will contain information on where you can find artist's galleries now that they have fled tumblr.

    We can't do this without the help of artists out there as well as their fans as Seth and myself can't find every single artist that has moved to another web platform.

    To find out how and locate the list yourself check on after the break!


    In order to help here are some guidelines:

    -Artist is either a current pony artist (pony, anthro, humanized) or a former pony artist (once a part of the fandom always a part of the fandom)

    -Information needed will include their artist name, URLs to the galleries they use, as well as a designation on whether or not the artist and the linked galleries are SFW or NSFW (or both).

    - Finally, send everything to [email protected] with Tumblr Evac or something similar in the subject line.

    Hopefully if a list like this works it will make the transition away from Tumblr much easier.

    The list itself in its primitive state can be found below:

    Furthermore, spread the word! The more people who can see the list if this works out the more artists we can connect with their fans.
