I'll change my rating and review when things improve.

When I first joined the site (and by extension, got the app), the site was pretty cool and I mostly made a profile so I could play games (this was back in 2012) but that was before I figured out it could be a good way to stay in contact with people from my past (I was reunited with a sister through Facebook). It seemed like a pretty fun place.

Now, onto the negatives. Besides the privacy concerns, the site (or, rather, the app) has gotten to be more buggy and it keeps getting buggier and buggier with each new change. Adding onto this, we have the issue of the mods not doing anything about hateful/abusive posts, spam posts, or the CP, let alone, the hackers, among other issues.

Look, it could be a nice site but, unfortunately, the landscape has changed since I first joined.

I first joined this site back in '13 but I didn't quite get into it until a little later in '13 and I found it to be a lot of fun to use, going on to make five more since. Sure, we do have that vocal minority (or majority, I don't really know) but there's a lot of fun and wonderful people on there.

Unfortunately, it's taken a hit with it's new guidelines (which only came about because of the FOSTA-SESTA act) and, to be honest, I do think there could have been something more of a middle ground when the changes went into the effect but the new laws put in place that lead to the changes poses a lot of liability as far as it goes, on top of AIs being a crapshoot. Otherwise, not much about it has changed.

All in all, I recommend the site.

The site is okay but the they could have more attentive admins and I loved it when they used to have a spell check in the document editor. I hope they bring that back.

It's a pretty good site, tbh.

The layout is wee haphazard but it's easy to use. The users tend to be friendlier and the admins are quite accommodating.

Sure, besides some of the more "questionable" artwork, it's an overall permissive site but, with a Pixiv Premium, that problem can be fixed.

They could, however, let you have more than a 200 tag limit on a blacklist.

You see, I've been on this site for quite awhile and it's changed a great deal since when I first joined.

You see, Fast Eddie is no longer in charge, as he's sold the site (back in 2014) . Unfortunately, that's not the issue. The staff, it seems, are hard to reach and the mods seem to target some tropers unfairly. Apparently, from what I've gathered, some pages have been cut for pretty arbitrary reasons.

On top of these, the new sight layout has more bugs than a beehive but the thing that seems to be plaguing it the most is the ads, especially on mobile, as, the ads hijack the page, redirecting you to Lord knows what the hell.

It could be a very good site but it's not the same as it was when I first joined. Nevertheless, I hope things improve.

I would not suggest this. You see, this site is, basically, a pay to use site. Most of the admins aren't particularly nice . It's quite restrictive and one is isn't allowed to post more than ten things unless you pay. I didn't stay there long.

In short, there are other writing websites, worth your time.

I love Tumblr. There is one thing that really stops me from heaving the app all the time : PLEASE...

Tumblr is fantastic if you have a lot of interests and don't mind jokes, memes, gifs or pictures...
