Tumblr’s new Community Guidelines are hurting Simblrs

2.8k Views

Tumblr has issued a public statement announcing that it will no longer allow adult content on its platform and simblrs are not happy about it.

According to the announcement, the proposed changes are scheduled to take place on December 17th of this year, but Simmers are already receiving notifications that posts on their simblrs have been flagged for adult content.

An excerpt from Tumblr’s announcement. Full statement linked below.

The Simming Community has always had a large presence on Tumblr. Simmers who frequent the site refer to their Sims blogs as “simblrs.” Storytellers in particular have been hit hard by the announcement. The new Community Guidelines will heavily restrict the freedom of storytellers to explore and address sensitive plots and social issues; something that has long been celebrated in the community.

However, NSFW simblrs are not the only ones affected. Many family-friendly simblrs are being mistakenly targeted by this change as well.
