  1. So basically I took a trip down into Pillowfort as a Demo to see what I could find and here are my current findings and whatnot.

    So far so good, nothing off point as we can see.
    Then I began to look into sort of one on one when it came to the people who actually use this site

    Overall the trip was interesting to see what kind of people even use this site. I hope this has been educational.

  2. Communities exist within tumblr using the tagging system, including Nazi groups, though typically any sort of hate group doesn’t get much traction on tumblr since all they do is report stupid image macros.

    The most heinous that are still alive and well are typically degenerates (IE pedophiles, shop lifters, etc). Unsure if pillowfort will address these, but I’ll at least give them credit in that they actually got a beta running until every other dev that has attempted to make a tumblr replacement.

  3. Well saturdaymorningvillain uses that website cause of the backlash they got on there pedo shit apparently and has already had to block people. But sadly there blog is unviewable, either she got bawww'leeted or she has made it so her profile can't be viewable to non-memebers. But I don't know if you can do that or not.

    Could be interesting looking into.
    if you don't know about him he is in the Bartel

    It's pretty pathetic that they had to get a paid account just to escape all her detractors.

    I would also like to note the the peeps down at Pillowfort has caught wind of Saturdaymorninvillians artwork and made a vague post about them. Cause they are the only one that draws that kind of stuff on the site.
    Here is the post
    There post about them vagueing them is under (DESCRIPTION OF CHILD SEXUALIZATION IN THE BELOW PARAGRAPH)
    And the comment section goes off on her aswell. Something to look at I guess. Also in the post they talk about Saturdaymorningvillian's friend mercalli-system (who supports no-maps)who is also part of Pillowfort here.

  4. To be fair, on paper I wouldn't say this is a bad feature to have in and of itself.

    One of the biggest design flaws on Tumblr - that I would even go so far to argue is the root of a lot of Tumblr's user base issues - is that its current reblog system allows misinformation, or even a dumb comment made in ignorance or error, to spread like wild fire and continue to circulate long after it's been corrected, deleted, or debunked so long as one copy of the original and idiots who continue not to fact-check still exist. It's how you get Tumblr users who still "signal boost" or parrot wrong information or callouts made in malicious intent or even deliberate trolling even when there's dozens of posts in the notes that have pointed out how they're bullshit for months. Or how you'll occasionally see people with disclaimers as their headers because someone took an innocuous post they made and turned it into a crusade they still get messages hounding them about it because Tumblr has no concept of time stamps. Hell, I'd argue it's even partially what fuels for Tumblr's infamous "never forgive, never forget" mob policy since an ignorant statement or joke in poor taste made years ago might as well have been made 5 minutes ago for how little difference it makes to the dashboard system delete the post or try and move on from it.

    So on that front, potentially giving users the ability to go feign ignorance and go "whaaaaaat, I never said that" about their posts seems like a negligible consequence to trying to curb that - especially when they're are already workarounds to Deleting Fucking everything in the form of screenshots and archives.

    A bigger concern I think is how their ToS is extremely underdeveloped at this point. A major flaw I've noticed with these "zero negativity" sites like Pillowfort or the now defunct Writscrib is that they don't seem to understand that, if you want to be successful, you gotta give those dang dirty antis/haters/nonbelievers just a little bit of leeway when using your site because A) even if the average joe has no intent on going to every other user and posting "u sux" on every comment, they won't bother using it if they think they're going to get finger-waggled at by a moderator the second they get snippy on a post they stumble across, and B) if you're pushing a "zero negativity"/"don't like, don't look" policy, you damn well better intend to apply it to everyone the same way, because users are going to notice the second you pull out the "no mean comments uwu" shit on one type user but not another and call you out on it.

  5. Oh and I also like to add that Saturdaymorningvillain's little fuck buddy Metalli-system is in that site too and supports nomaps which is just tumblr for pedophiles. But it they pretty much support them so she can get off to her Bart x sideshow Bob pedo fanfics without feeling bad and think writing fanfic on that shit is in some way "supporting a oppressed group of pedophiles UwU". So yeah some sick fucks are migrating there too.

  7. Believe me you don't want to know. But let's say it's like a romantic epic with 20 something chapters but instead of Fabio and some hot chick it's sideshow bob grooming a little boy and it's written as love.

    Read for yourselves.
    Of course I don't want to bother to read it cause I want my sanity in tacked.

    and there pillowfort is here.

  12. Pillowfort is down due to a security breach

    Really bad timing, too. A lot of people are getting fed up with Tumblr as of late because they got banned from the Apple store, because they can't seem to run their website well enough to delete child pornography, and, as of late, the tumblr bots have been flagging sfw posts as nsfw, namely due to the bot mistaking things from shirtless Mario to beets as "female-presenting-nipples. Basically the bot bans lumps because it thinks they're nipples.

    Screenshot 2018-12-03 at 8.15.07 PM.png

    Even though I can't imagine Pillowfort allows nsfw, it might appeal to Tumblr users due to it not flagging all of their shit as porn. Unfortunately I'm not under the impression that either site is run by anyone competent, but we'll see how this goes. People always say they're going to quit Tumblr for another Tumblr knockoff site when Tumblr staff adds an unnecessary and flawed update, but they can never stay away.

  13. People have been asking me if I'm going to move to Pillowfort.

    The very name of the website goes against my cantankerous, bawdy internet persona.

    Also it's gonna be flooded with huge weenies. And not the fun kind.

  15. I'm mystified by the desire to move to Pillowfort. The entirety of tumblr's run, people have complained about it being staffed by a bunch of ideologically biased jackasses who don't know how to code. But it was at least theoretically a company, and the coders were at least theoretically professionals. Pillowfort was created by a handful of people for whom tumblr wasn't enough of a socjust hugbox and decided to teach themselves to write a tumblr clone. Exactly how is anything gonna get better there?

  16. I mean Tumblr might be a lot of things, but horny has always been one of them. Since all nsfw content is banned now, they're getting desperate, and planning a mass exodus.
    A lot of blogs are migrating to Twitter and Instagram, but the formats confuse them and they miss what they know and understand. Right now, Pillowfort looks like a strings-free carbon-copy Tumblr, so it's sparking a lot of attention, and I know that a lot of people plan on moving there once the site is properly put out again.

  18. So will Tumblr (◡‿◡✿) become Pillowfort (◡‿◡✿)? Or will Pillowfort crash in burn within a few months? It'll probably be entertaining nonetheless, but I can't help but think that there'll never be a Tumblr clone that lasts for more than a few months (Anyone remember Peach?)

  19. Pillowfort's reminding me of the Zippcast shit all over again. I remember when YouTubers were threatening to move to Zippcast which was a video sharing site with the old YouTube layout. The week everyone wanted to move to Zippcast...it was down.

    Here we have Tumblr fucking over their userbase and Pillowfort was already down for a week or two to combat a security breach and that's on top of the $5 signup fee. That's not a good look at all.

  20. I don't see Pillowfort really getting off the ground, even with a lot of Tumblr users threatening to leave. It seems like just a really bad Tumblr clone and I think the fact that it costs money (even if it's only $5) is going to deter a lot of people. I mean, I know a lot of Tumblr e-beggars will find ways to pay for anything other than rent, but I don't see a mass exodus to a paid platform happening. Plus, the posts I've seen shilling Pillowfort have all said you can pay for a registration link now, but you won't be able to sign up until the end of the week, which may not be a big deal to some people, but I've seen several posts from people who have said they paid for a registration link over a month ago and never received one.

    Also, Pillowfort is just a really dumb fuckin name. So there's that deterrent as well.
