The "awfulness" of tumblr depends on which people you follow and what you make of it.
My tumblr experience is pretty awesome. I can always go on tumblr to get inspiration and have fun looking at posts in general.

You just have to avoid the hipsters and moralf**s and you're good to go.

You should check out Sword Art Online, it's like the best anime of 2012!

...Anyway, two series that I started fairly recently but have yet to actually finish although they are pretty damn good so far are Welcome to the NHK and Samurai Champloo. Go go go netto!

I feel like I've made a grave mistake here. Should've hinted the sarcasm.

...Oh well.

All the theme changing makes me want to try to keep my themes for as long as possible ngl. Even if it's one I made out of the blue ...

How come nobody ever credit the people who drew the drawings they use in their signatures? :(

However, with the use of THE INTERNET(tm), I have deduced that the piece was most likely originally made and uploaded by a fairly unknown Japanese artist who goes under the name of Kitanti! :D ...Pixiv doesn't like us westerners that much though (mostly because we steal their art and don't credit them), and thus it's difficult for me to double check his profile there. Not letting me access it.

But most 'boorus out there credit this Kitanti person! Oh internet, you can be so useful sometimes!

With most of my sigs, I have Tumblr as the image source.

Tumblr is VERY good at spreading and sharing them though!

Oh, that's not what I meant. Tumblr is great for finding images.
It's not so great at giving source to or credit them, though.

I don't agree with this... Sure SAO arc was great, but the ALO arc... disappointing.

I was being highly sarcastic in that statement (mostly just to bully tease Netto). IMO SAO isn't even close to the top ten of 2012. :P
SAO could've been good, but some things just really wrecked it. A bit unfortunate.

I must add that it's an unspoken rule amongst many tumblrers (is that even a word?) that the picture must be credited to the original poster. There are even tutorials out there on how to use certain programs/sites to find the source. I've seen people get angry over sourcing. As an artist, however, I support linking to the original source. You don't put hours and hours and hours in a picture to see it disappear in the voids of the internet where other people run around showing off your art without mentioning you. It's why I try to put watermarks on picture I put on tumblr.
But by no means is "tumblr" a valid source, it's like putting "deviantart", or "google".

I enjoy SAO... But I've seen better series~

Well said, Kotowari person!
Makes me think about the joke drawing of mine that found its way to Reddit and then exploded onto the internet without control. No watermark or signature there, hahaha.

Though in that particular situation I don't really care. While I'm a bit proud of it being seen by so many, I don't have any interest in forcing people to credit me. It's a pretty lousy drawing to begin with, and the people who see it on 9gag and lolfactory and other yucky places like that aren't really my target audience anyway. :P

Kotowari person? You don't recognise me anymore, Pokestick?//Sobs

I can understand if it's a "lousy" drawing, but when it comes to full-fledged pictures, I'd like to know where my art goes. I guess that's why I add an extra watermark on big pictures, whereas it's just my signature on smaller ones. I found it quite weird when I googled my deviantname and found myself as a tag on Zerochan. But only one of my pictures was linked to that tag. The weird feeling was me being torn between feeling happy that people liked my art enough to go post it elsewhere, and bitter that they didn't bother asking/crediting me.

I'm terrible at remembering people, okay? ;;
I recognize you as the DGM loving person, but I'm so bad at usernames.

...Wait, now I realised the 9gag post actually links to my DeviantArt. Huh, guess they actually did their research hahaha. Though I guess nobody clicked that one, unlike the little comment that linked to it on Reddit.
Though yeah, kudos to 9gag this time. Usually I have a pretty negative association with the site, but damn.

No yuzahunter tag on Konachan or anything like that. :P
I have noticed Christina's work on several occasions on Safebooru and such, though. Which is cool.

Okay, okay. Please accept my humblest appologies. It's Mudkipblader from waaaaaaaaay back. o3o/

Oh, that's nice. I heard that Signomi was part of Safebooru's staff, though. I think it was Thom/Stand Alone who told me that after I told him that I saw her art used in an add for that site. Always nice to see links to PC in the real world (it was a Dutch Anime/Manga/Game/J-life magazine).

Apology accepted. You may now kiss my feet.
I see, had no idea about that. Sound pretty nice indeed. It's a small world hahaha.

...Will probably head to bed shortly though. It's preeeetty late. Or early in the morning if you look at it that way.
