Post Tumblr taking down NSFW, The state of auril's tumblr?
This is a message directed at Auril, because we need to know if she's moving back to her blog if her tumblr get's taken down (which it probably will at this point after the tumblr news of nsfw accounts getting deleted)
And if not her blog, where else? She should get a twitter or something.

I remember seeing some messages about certain NSFW blogs activity being suspended, but those cases were relatively rare and most of such accounts still keep operating as if nothing happened.
Is it really that bad at the moment? Can you please provide a link to this news?

Thanks. It seems, I used wrong tags to search. ;)

They've also just posted a relevant message on the dashboard, so it's official - 2 weeks from now on.

Time to look for a different platform, indeed. Twitter does seem to be a good option, though I'm not sure if Blogspot still allows posting of explicit images or videos.
Are there any existing alternatives yet?

You are literally posting on one, Auril already has a self-owned platform here. Tumblr was just for updates and gallery for promotion. This can be done on Twatter as well until it also collapses under its own silliness.

My suggestion @Auril. How about instead of searching for another site ran by corporations, try to contact someone with their page and reputation like Liard (https://liardart.com/), Rexx (http://rexxworld.com/) or Valnoressa (https://valnoressa.com/) and ask if you can mutually help each other. They could let you post Tails of Azeroth gallery updates and build releases on their news feed. In return you could promote them either in-game (give links to their websites on menu screens) or on this forum. Your fanbases are interested in the same thing so why not band together? Or you could just re-organize this page for yourself in similar manner as they run theirs (a kind of hub with a newsfeed, gallery, download section - you know the drill).

You already partnered up with Lumistra (looks like you will need a new place to go too Lumi :( ) and even Shina is around here somewhere (https://www.theworldofporncraft.com/).

Was going to suggest Pornhub, but that would probably aggro Beezurd. Nvm that.

Ramazon,
But we've been discussing exactly a new platform for updates and promotions from the very beginning, since the old one is closing, haven't we? The main website is a different topic. :)

Personally, I agree with your suggestions. At the same time, there may still be some limitations which could have possibly prevented Auril from implementing them before.

Also, if there's a need for one place to store and group all the images and animations, Imgur may become a solution.

True. Worth a shot still.



Also, what the hell is happening with entertainment these days? Warhammer Fantasy goes down the drain with Age of Shitmar. Movies (Star Wars) and TV series are becoming clueless and filled with forced diversity at expense of actual storytelling. No new ideas are created. All we get are remakes,prequels and sequels.

Games are also either becoming souless husks:
- Bioware with their hideous Andromeda, and even earlier, Dragon Age: Inquisition already giving signs of rotting sickness with the gameplay revolving around mini-map markers. I LITERALLY HURT TO FINISH THAT GAME. I played it to the end because I loved first two series (and yes, I loved even Dragon Age 2, because it had compelling story, despite its poor design in other fields).
- Bethesda with their Fallout 76....
- Blizzard's 'Battle for Azeroth' being completely disconnected from the fanbase. Silly story decisions (what happened with cold and calculating Sylvanas plotting in shadows? She is a raging berserk now). Azerite armor. Removal of interesting systems and any things to strive for. Also, Diablo Immortal.
- Not my type of games but - Assasins Creed, Battlefield, Destiny 2 - filled with lootboxes and pay to win stuff. Plagued by shady decisions like XP throttling, locking content between expansions, lying to customers.

Now Tumblr is banning porns. What the fuck?

Ramazon,
There's also Patreon, which tightened their adult content policy a few months ago as well. ;)
It's usually the problem of large developers: the bigger a company becomes, the more attention it has to pay to its income, rather than the originality of products it provides (which means risks). This way the company may cover bigger audience in general, though, simultaneously hurting a minority of people who desire something unique and complex.

By the way, the absolute majority of people who've replied to the official message on Tumblr deeply dislike the idea of banning adult content there, so it's a little bit pleasing.

As for suggestions, there's also Hentai-Foundry.
Have we ever talked about it? I'd highly recommend Auril create a profile there - it's a great platform for updates and promotion per se, regardless of the situation with Tumblr. Even though it's usually used by 2D artists, 3D is also allowed there. It may be a good idea to post exclusive screenshots (and maybe artistically edited to some extent), similar to those which can be found in the newly opened in-game gallery - they look really good. Something like this:

Some adult artists are also moving to Newgrounds. It's worth trying it as well.

Those platforms are safe in terms of B-zard and should help in expanding the audience considerably.

And there're almost 400 followers already. Looks promising.

Have you seen Illidan and Tyrande, by the way? :)
