we have literally created our own dialogue? language? here on tumblr and i think that is the most amazing thing ever
please disregard my shitty editing skills
no listen this is actually really amazing because this is a real thing. i think this counts as a pidgin language. a pidgin language is basically a changed, simplified version of a language. you can change the spellings of words, pronunciation, grammar rules, or even make up new words. i think. i’d have to research it a bit more to be sure but i’m 90% sure this is right. if its not a pidgin language, then its a lingua franca but thats more used for trade and stuff like that. but still a new language. so yes, we’ve created our own language. we’ve changed the whole sentence structure. we can trail off sentences, say things like “i just cant”, and use words like ship, OTP, fic, fandom, feels, and ship names and everyone will understand what you’re saying. the part that i love most is how people go “OMGH IM CRIIY NIG SOIOO HARD” and understand each other. for example “IM LIUA GHMNIG”. that one was incredibly easy, but if you knew that said “I’m laughing”, congratulations. You speak a pidgin language. we can even say stuff like “Does anyone know of a Johnlock fic, at least 20k words, not a WIP, with no OCs, and is Post-Reichenbach? Or just a Destiel PWP would be great.” To someone not on tumblr, that wouldn’t make any sense. but you understood, didn’t you? One characteristic of a pidgin language is that you have to learn it like a second language. Another characteristic is that it is frequently changing. tumblr goes through many trends with how we talk. if i remember correctly, when i first made an account about two years ago, talking like this wasn’t quite as common. also, that thing of suddenly capitalizing your sentence is fairly recent. you know, when people go “the new epISODE IS TOMORROW”. Like one of the people up there said, all of this is awesome because how else do you easily show emotion and tone over the internet? we’ve even made a whole sense of humour that most people here share in. There’s so much more that I could talk about with this, but i’m tired and i may be entirely wrong about everything. but yes. people on the fandom side of tumblr who speak like this are speaking a new language
It’s more amazing when you think that the new language was developed almost exclusively through indirect communication.
Man I wish I still had linguisitics classes because I am sure this totally counts as a pidgin language…
<sup> makes words go like thiiiiis.
<sub> makes them do thiiiiis.
<small> makes words go little. The more <small> you have the smaller the word.
Same thing applies with <big>.
<u> makes underlines.

Of course these are just basic things. You can also look at the HTML button for the codes if youre not up for searching through Google for them.
The button is here:
you betray the secrets of the trade
for those who never learned
<code> makes your text monospaced, <pre> puts your text in a grey box
This tool provides you with characters that match what you draw.
This tool lets you draw in monospace ASCII which you can then put in <code> on Tumblr.
This tool makes big-ass letters with text. Everything but the AOL fonts require monospace (<code>).
After seeing the custom tumblr home buttons floating around, I decided I really needed a Homestuck-themed post dash. And then I got carried away, as per usual. I obviously can’t use six different themes at once, so feel free to install the Stylish plugin and download away:
@JJ, here you go
Siri is an A+ moirail
simplesignifier puts up with me somehow and I am so stupidly grateful you don’t even know
holla at skwinky ;A; <>
Snazzy my pale love <>
Squids, my pale darling. <>
either I or xuskera would have murdered someone or ourselves by now if we hadn’t blundered into each other’s path.
my lovely moirail Vanessa uvu I’m almost completely sure I would be in a mental hospital if not for her by now.
Zilis my precious Moirail. <>
Deerishus is the most wonderful moirail I could ever ask for <>
space-pyjamas is the best moirail ok ilu bb <>
tumblr amazes me because i can log off for an hour and by the time i’ve come back i managed to miss an entire dashboard trend beginning, ending, and being overused to hell and back
Hey guys did you know
If you go to any tag on any blog and add /chrono to the end of the URL, it displays from first post to last, rather than showing the most recent first.
That link leads to a random Wikipedia page. From your random page, the goal is to try and get to Hitler’s page through only following links. Don’t cheat and click on something you think won’t get you to the page, you have to try to reach it. You win if it takes you less than six clicks.
I am decent at this game ok
- Go to your tumblr blog
- Scroll down to find the post where the reply is, clicking on the ‘number note’ icon
- A drop down menu will appear on the post showing you the replies and likes on the post.
You’ll see the Reply speech bubble icon that’s collided and cluttered with tumblr’s ‘block’ icon. You don’t want that because you’ll have to squeeze through your cursor and move it until the speech bubble icon is hovered/hi-lighted over…
- But wait! You can also install a script that separates the block and reply icon, by install this Stylish script! —> User Reply Fix
Make sure to have both ‘Stylish’ and ‘Missing E’ to work!
- Happy Blogging!
and then theres this one ahahhaah
oh god what did i do

things tumblr needs:
- an option to lock the source, so that no one can change it and steal text posts
- an option to force someone to answer an ask privately when you send it
- hide posts if you’ve already reblogged them
- searching multiple tags
