*update at the bottom*
Welp...the morality police fuck up another website.
Now I have to figure out somewhere else to post the naughty stuff. I thought about Pixiv, but there's a whole buch of *questionable* material that gets posted there, and I'd rather not be associated with it. Tumblr had it share of that stuff, but at least they tried to police it...Pixiv does not. I thought about Twitter as well, but with the mass exodus of adult stuff FROM Tumblr TO Twitter, it's just a matter of time before they bow to the pressure and remove adult content as well. All of the adult artists that are migrating to Twitter...you're just going to make things worse. Social media platforms (the mainstream ones) aren't going to put up with it and will eventually just outright ban adult content across the board.
So, I'll figure something out.
I hope those fuckwits at Tumblr enjoy having to go back and review all of my posts they flagged. Why should I be the only one to suffer for their idiocy? Yep, I went through my blog and clicked "review" on every post they flagged. What's funny is it appears they got bored and stopped flagging stuff at some point; the early posts aren't flagged.
If you've been flagged on Tumblr, and it's feasible to go through your posts, I encourage everyone hit by this to click the review button on their work. I say we inconvenience those bastards as much as possible. Serves them right.
If you haven't visited my tumblr, you should before it all gets deleted...cuz I'm not reposting all of that stuff.
So, with Tumblr deciding to kill their own website to appease Apple, I have lost my primary platform to post the naughty stuff. There are a few alternatives where I can post my work, but they each have their own *issues* that put me off from posting there.
I haven't posted things on Patreon because, contrary to popular belief, they do in fact censor and remove work they find objectionable...even behind the paywall. This is a fact...it has happened to artists I know. That sounds kind of stupid...removing artwork only being seen by the people paying to see it. But, it is happeneing.
However, I'm going to take a chance and start posting the good stuff for all patrons to see (single image stuff; comics will still be for level 2 and 3 patrons). I'm going to start from the beginning (of the Patreon era) and mix in a little older stuff as well (the stuff that doesn't make me wretch to look at it). There will be no rhyme or reason to the posts...I will start with January 2016 and go month by month, posting things in alphabetical order as they appear in my folders. It will only be the stuff that has been available to patrons, not the "for all" artwork (like what I post on Deviantart). It will be full size and unmarked. I'll probably dust off my twitter account and start using that to post previews and what not, along with posting what I can here on DA. I'll continue to use Tumblr for informational posts...there just won't be any more artwork there after the 17th.
We'll see how this goes and if Patreon is going to hassle me. I'll try to make a few posts each day until I run out of stuff or they make me stop.
