And buggy. Barely usable.
We were tossing this around the office today, @taylorlecroy and I. Among those already on our list:
- Tweet thieves
- People who Instagram every meal
- Photo over-taggers
- Habitual Facebook cause inviters
- Tightly knit #FF circles
- People who only check your blog to try to take things out of context and get you in trouble
- Farmville & Mafia Wars players
- Daily mugshots
- People who don’t star my tweets
- People from Twitter who friend you on Facebook but don’t follow you on Twitter
- People from Twitter who friend you on Facebook but don’t tell you what their Twitter name is
- Salesmen who connect with you after one vendor presentation and then ask you to recommend them on LinkedIn
- #hashtag #every #single #word
- Monsters who try to excuse their bullyish behavior with “it’s just the internet”
- Push every 4square check-in to Twitter and FB
- People who click every link and then blame “the Inter-net” when their FB account is hacked
- People on Twitter who have become more popular than me
- Oversharers who subsequently complain because people know too much about their business
- Grammar Nazis (except for me)
- People who post photos of their ugly baby every damn day
- People who find love on the internet and live happily ever after, rubbing your nose in it with every cute post
- Require reciprocal follows
- People who push everything everywhere— Twitter, FB, 4square, Instagram, LinkedIn, Posterous, Tumblr, Blip, etc.
- Words With Friends cheaters
Who would you add? Reply, reblog, and retweet with your favorite villains.
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.
UPDATE: Tumblr’s recent Dashboard redesign has broken some of the features of missing e. Will see if an update ever sees the light of day.
And I noticed that NinjaKit is broken in Safari 6. Haven’t seen an update/workaround for that. Anyone else?
Works with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
Does most, if not all of the functions below, and then some.
Amazing work by Jeremy Cutler.
May have peed a little.*
Tumblr should implement these tools natively pronto.
I’m using Safari 5.0.x on a Mac with the NinjaKit Extension and all four scripts work, though your mileage may vary with other setups.
The four are as follows:
Add a tumblr control button to reblog your own posts!
You could always do this manually:
Go to the permalink page of the post, view the HTML source, at the bottom it will say <!— BEGIN TUMBLR CODE —> and then an iframe source which ends in “&rk=Ml5I4A6I” except that RK code is different every time. Copy the 8-digit code that comes after “rk=” and then in your address bar it will say something like http://*you*.tumblr.com/post/658445839/, replace “post” with “reblog” and then paste the 8-digit code after it, making “http://*you*.com/reblog/658445839/Ml5I4A6I” then hit enter. Reblog form should come up after that.
…but this is much easier.
2) Tumblr Upload Photo button for all posts
Broken. I’ve contacted the author. We’ll see if a fix comes… Fixed!
Adds the “+ Upload Photo” option to all types of posts except chat.
This simply adds the “Upload Photo” button to posts besides text post, this allows you to add pictures that will be visible on other peoples’ dashboards, instead of showing up as the gray picture icon (which is what shows up if you use the picture button in the text editor).
The list of posts this adds the button to is:
Photo, Link, Quote (description only), Audio, Video, and messages, as well as reblogs and edits of all of the previous.
Allows you to edit a post without loading a new page. Doesn’t take you away from the Dashboard or page that you’re on. It’s a faster way of editing typos and such.
Add an edit link for all tumblr posts (very useful for colaborative blogs)
Problem: When you have many blogs (2+) on Tumblr, usually colaborative blogs, you lose the edit button.
Solution: Add an additional button to edit blog posts from colaborative blogs. This script works with http://(yourblog).tumblr.com by default, but you can add more URLs on Greasemonkey’s configuration
Use the following syntax in the configuration code for each additional blog you’d like to add:
Huge help. Not having an edit button on a post means having to edit from a blog’s Dashboard. Unfortunately, Tumblr’s search sucks, and often doesn’t bring up the post that you’re looking for. You end up having to scroll back through pages of old posts from the Dashboard to find it, or scour through archives. Not elegant. Huge thanks to the author for this one.
The internet rules.
Have you found any others that you like?
You can go to userscripts.org and search for “Tumblr” to see what else comes up.
