Why is no one on this site talking about how our posts end up on imgur?
what happens is people like me (cross reddit-tumblrs) see tumblr stuff and want to share it on reddit. However, the tumblr permalinks don’t play nicely with reddit apps and reddit embedding. Also, direct tumblr links (media.tumblr.com/random letters) decay eventually and the media will be lost. So we upload them onto imgur, our native image host, so they’ll play nicely with the programming and won’t disappear eventually.
It’s okay, we and our brother site 4chan gave you doge and just about every other meme/advice animal as well our own extensive OC. The communities aren’t as separate as redditors (and probably tumblrers [if that’s what you refer to yourselves as] as well) want to believe.
I promise, redditors are really good about giving credit to original artists. Every time someone tries to pass off someone else’s art as their own, they get destroyed. I’ve seen it happen a lot and the pitchforks are always sharp and close at hand.
As for screenshots of discussions, that’s just because pictures are easier to share than links.
