In light of tumblr now no longer allowing “adult content” (like nsfw art/pictures) will pillowfort still allow nsfw content as long as it is properly marked? Because that decision has pretty much destroyed my already little faith in tumblr.


Yes, we plan to allow NSFW content with very few restrictions. I don’t have any particular insight into why Tumblr is making this decision but if I had to guess, it’s because allowing NSFW content conflicts with their need for the site to be marketable and safe for advertisers– Pillowfort on the other hand plans to derive most of its revenue from user subscriptions, meaning that we will be beholden to our actual userbase and not outside advertisers and can therefore have more leeway in what we can host.

Serious. moving to my pillowfort blog when this place goes dead
