Just get out of the way.
Many awesome people have left replies on some of my posts.
This is great. I love them and I love that Tumblr has this cool feature.
I want to thank them. Say that I got their reply. Or message them. Or just send a heart back. Something.
But I feel handcuffed and muzzled. There is no way built in to replies to ping back.
It’s strange that *getting* the reply makes you feel cut off, but it does.
I know that some people have Message Me enabled, Or I could reblog some unrelated post, etc… But I desperately want to thank them “inside” the system.
Anyway… if anybody has sent me a reply… thank you. I read them, and appreciate them.
Tumblr, are you listening?
Again with this.
Seriously, Tumblr. It’s a half-baked feature. Flesh it out, or, ya know, just enable comments, by default, which is where “replies” should go in the first place.
