You can preview the new documents with the links above. And starting today, we’ll be making all policy revisions historically viewable (and
diff-able) on GitHub!
If you have any questions or comments, please drop us a note.
From the Community Guidelines:
Mass Registration and Automation. Don’t register accounts or post content automatically, systematically, or programmatically.
Once upon a time, Tumblr allowed you to populate a blog from RSS: that’s how craneporn is meant to work. Does this guideline mean that writing a third-party service to translate or aggregate content would be allowed, or is the word “post” in there a misnomer?
I’m also interested in mass-moving posts from ffffound to Tumblr, and again, that’s programmatic, systematic posting, and hence against the new guidelines. I accept that might not be what the site’s owners think it’s for, but to me, it seems like a valid use case.
Ah well. Perhaps I shouldn’t be doing any of this on someone else’s platform anyway. (That Git history of revisions, though: nice idea.)
