I have been much less attentive than I usually am on tumtum as of late. I try to go through my dash when I can, but otherwise I’ve been kinda MIA from the internet in general. I’m sorry~ I’ll be in Chicago until August, and I’ll be back soon. <3
in other news, I cut my hair today! It’s really short for me since it hasn’t been anywhere close to this length since I was about ten and got made fun of for looking like a boy. I like how much shower time it cut down, hehe.
people just love being anonymous today. it doesn’t bother me that much so I leave it on, but what is there to be afraid of? anyway, tumblr has a feature called Explore that sort of aggregates a growing list of official tags. any tumblr can use those tags, but only certain posts get ‘featured’ within a tag. an editor’s job is to help curate appropriate posts to be featured in whatever tag he/she is under. so let’s say you want to see the #animals tag, you’ll initially see what’s been featured by its editors. there’s also two other categories you can browse under each tag, which are popular and all. the last one will show you every post on tumblr with the specific tag you’re looking at.
as an editor myself, I will not feature posts that don’t source properly—especially ones that “credit” back to weheartit or imgfave—or if a photograph is really small, out of focus or blurry. also, it’s annoying to see posts that source themselves when I know they’re not the original artist/creator.
Hi! I was just wondering, how can I become an editor, like you!
I honestly don’t know. the FAQ states that TumblrBot has something to do with it. there are lots of other answers there that may be helpful. personally, I was invited to be an editor so I really only know as much as you do, anon.
