Since the HalForums page is one that can have multiple mods, it can't follow any blogs. But! People can follow them and you can see which mod posted what.

Speaking of which, Dave time to figure out how to do this mod thing. Who's gonna be them?
I'll jump on.

Fine. I guess I'll figure out another way to get Gusto topless.[DOUBLEPOST=1357838434][/DOUBLEPOST]But seriously, we could run the tumblr like the page here using some clever navigation.

We can set it up with links that direct people to:
  • General humor
  • Cosplay
  • Memes
  • Pictures
  • Videos.

So, come up with some standard tags, make sure posts are tagged appropriately, and put links on Halforums layout?

Yes. I'm a little swamped at work, but I was also going to add a short description and a link to the website as well when I'm free'd up.

I thought Vixey was the prettiest thing ever when I was little. And may very well be my starting point in loving foxes.

Or are you talking about something else...that winking smiley has me second guessing myself. :ninja:
Nope you got it. It's one of my all time favorite Disney movies.

BananaHands you've got my email address already, in the convo from yesterday. And if you want shirtless photos, all you gotta do is ask.

Gah! Me too! My little brain can't even handle it. HNnn, I love foxes, so very much. (That Robin Hood is actually one of my favorite love stories in the Disneyverse, of all time even.)

Weee, fox love!

I would do people who Tumblr frequently. Kags would be a good one.[DOUBLEPOST=1357841798][/DOUBLEPOST]I'd also pick an actual board mod. I'd pass on me because I don't know wtf I'm doing and we've all had enough of THAT!

I'm pleased with all the fox gifs popping up. You guys are brilliant.[DOUBLEPOST=1357841903][/DOUBLEPOST]Also....I'd be happy to be a mod if you need me to be BananaHands. :D Even the thought just makes me feel awesome.

Having Gusto would give us the ability to work with stuff here on the boards as well as Tumblr.

And porn. So much porn. Tumblr is the funnel through which all internet porn eventually passes.

So, I followed the HalForums tumblr. We'll see if I use mine. Maybe I'll try to update it. I like to write, I just have to get off my ass and do it.

My tumblr is this: http://signatory.tumblr.com/ (it is empty right now). Feel free to follow or not or whatever. Don't be offended if I don't follow yours. I am not much into cosplay (but sometimes it is admittedly pretty awesome) or anime/manga and it seems like cosplay and Hetalia are popular choices for tumblrs round these parts :D

And porn. So much porn. Tumblr is the funnel through which all internet porn eventually passes.
Wait, actually? That seems... weird to me. Most social media doesn't become concentrated porn.

I'm not sure my Tumblr actually is predominantly cosplay. I don't have a theme, just whatever I find interesting. It's kind of varied in it's nerdery.

I post so rarely to mine. It's more of an excuse to have a dashboard to catch up on what everyone else is posting.

I'm trying to motivate myself to set up the fuckyeahleapinlawyer tumblr, but at this stage, we'd get "oh, you're just ripping off McKayla Is Not Impressed," even though we predate that by years. :p

[ETA: it is done. Same deal as the the HF tumblr, need email addresses to add mods before opening this up to public submissions.]

I've got an idea for a post, I want to see if others like it first. I found this story on Slashdot:

IBM's Watson Gets A 'Swear Filter' After Learning The Urban Dictionary

That made me wonder what Watson would do after reading Tumblr for a bit. I figure he'd start writing fan-fic with Kasparov / Deep Blue as his OTP, with the occasional Kasparov / Deep Blue / Turing as his OT3 (tumblr loves Turing).

So, write that up as a (hopefully) witty Tumblr post, give it a good headline (I'm thinking "Urban Dictionary gives Watson a potty mouth"), we milk the Watson tag for all it's worth and hope the Sherlock fandom thinks my post is funny enough to reblog.

Any objections to my posting a thread on the subject on Halforums, a post on the Halforums Tumblr with a link to the thread and hoping for the best?
