This is a thread for Tumblr users to share their urls, find people they've met on Tumblr here, or find people they've met here on tumblr, etc.

 

You see, the Dragon Quest Tumblr community, though active, is very small.  I was wondering if there are any Dragon Quest blogs I've overlooked, or anyone in the Dragon Quest fandom who's been meaning to get a Tumblr, etc.  Basically, I want more people to talk DQ with on Tumblr.

Tumblr is the worst web site in the world. I've never seen so much stupidity come out of one place.

If you look at the whole thing, yeah. That can be said of a lot of social places.

 

I think this is geared specifically towards the DQ side of it, though. There are still dangers, of course, you just gotta know which places to avoid.

 

Regardless, while I look at some DQ blogs here and there, my own isn't very DQ-centric and I don't do a lot of reposts, so I can't say I'd be able to help Tumblr's DQ community out that much. Sorry, yo.

For a time you could search via the Dragon Quest tag to see the most recent stuff. Had to stop because it devolved into nothing but porn and creeper stuff. Most of those people we don't need on our side!

 

The sheer volume of insanity that seeps from that site is staggering! Social awkardness passing itself off as social justice, too! Last year I was reading a friend's. Someone had asked a question and I decided to click on the account. I literally sat there, mouth agape, hands in my head, staring for a good five minutes because it was the stupidest thing I had ever read.

Even compared to 4chan? :P

Wow, that is something then.

 

I've only looked at a few things on tumblr before, mainly when the PETA game of Pokemon popped up. The other two times was a Ask Sakuri account(which devolved into you know what after a bit) and one revolved around cute things like this(taken from straight the account, I was looking up info on Bust A Move 4 one day trying to find screenshots on Google, strangely enough... it didn't devolved into anything nasty):

I don't remember the name of the account though. Other than those, I haven't looked at anything else on tumblr.

At this point I'm just parroting everyone else, but nearly all of my experiences with Tumblr has resulted in weird semi-pornographic fan art being thrown in my face. And often times it involves two straight characters. All I wanted to see was a page from a comic book, not RDJ's Tony Stark and Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner holding each other.

I quickly realized I had to turn the NSFW filter on tag pages for my account. It solved practically all problems. I think some people would still post inappropriate things without marking them for the filter, but I have not found many.

 

I do have a "mature" account, marked NSFW so other people can avoid it easily.

 

I do not think I will ever get into using it the way it is supposed to be used. People seem to re-post other people's contents and that's it. It is difficult to add or read comments to a post (if at all possible).

 

 

Cannock, you already have my Tumblr, but here it is for anyone else who might want it:

It might be better to watch my Blogspot or deviantART directly, though.

I remember the Sakuri(of Demonophobia) scenario with the porn happened while my nephew was over(who is in his teens, but still).

 

Went from questions asked to Sakuri to depravity in less than a minute of scrolling. Turns out he wasn't even looking in the direction my comp's flat screen until after I panicked(while I said "Sorry" repeatedly, I thought he accidently got a glimpse at that point) and covered the tab with my hand.

Mine contributes little to none in the DQ community as all I really post are anime gifs, cat pictures, and food, all of which, I don't keep track of.

 

The only thing relevant that I post is cosplay pictures.

I am not denying that most of Tumblr is extremely stupid.  I joined solely to promote my artwork, but I found that there really is a part of Tumblr for pretty much everyone (even if you have to go through a lot of crap to find it).  And, for the record, the Dragon Quest tag is pretty porn-free these days.

While I don't use Tumblr, I'm sure there's some creepy stuff that pops up. Why people feel the need to make porn of Dragon Quest or My Little Pony is beyond me.

 

That being said, I came across a great Shin Megami Tensei (or Megaten) fan page on the site thanks to the Shin Megami Tensei IV message board on GameFAQs. At least it isn't all bad haha.

for the record not all MLP fans are like that (doing the porn thing) also, i have to agree that i find posting porn of any kind and of any way is repulsive.

Oh I know not all bronies and other fans of MLP are like that. I was just saying I don't know what could go through someone's head when they make something like that.

That's true. Some of the garbage people say about bronies is just awful.

I'm apart of the MLP fandom, porn doesn't phaze me(Chan sites desensitzed me to a lot of stuff). My only real issue with being a part of the brony fandom are the ones who think it's worse than any other fandom when drama occurs in it. These are usually the devil's advocate types.

 

As far as I can tell, it's actually no worse than any other large fandom.
