Whether you call them a Lady in Waiting or a Queen’s Companion, this is exactly why I am uncomfortable with royals having a group of staff members who can only come from wealthy, upper class (and therefore predominantly white and conservative) backgrounds and don’t have to go through the usual recruitment processes where things like understanding of equity and diversity can be tested. We have the royals already, we can’t do much about that, but they can at least make sure their staff aren’t just a bunch of posh, out of touch wankers

Raincaller's Horn
Staff, artifact (requires attunement)
The horn of the Raincallers is revered by those that work the land knowing the bounty it brings to nature around it. Those who are lucky enough to wield one of these staves have the power to influence the world in a way that few others could and bring soothing balm to both land and flesh. This staff can be wielded as a magic quarterstaff that grants a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. While you hold it, you gain a +3 bonus to spell attack rolls. While holding this staff, you are immune to diseases. Additionally, you can always sense the nearest body of water within 10 miles of your current location. While attuned to this weapon, you gain a pool of 300 hit points stored within the staff. You can use an action to blow the horn and cause healing rain to fall over creatures of your choosing, that you can see, within 120 ft. The healing rain restores an amount of hit points of your choosing to each creature and removes that amount from the pool of hit points. If you restore 10 or more hit points to a target, they are also cured of blindness, deafness, or any diseases affecting them. The hit point pool is restored once per day when the staff is immersed in water.
Raincaller’s Blessing (1/year). You can take an hour to perform a ritualistic series of calls from the horn on this staff to call the rains to the land around you. When you do this, all land in a 50 mile radius from where you blew the horn becomes blessed. For one year, rains of holy water fall over the land regularly, cleansing it of evil effects and enriching its soil. The land becomes extremely fertile and crops grown from it are much larger than normal, wildlife becomes plentiful, and creatures that drink the waters from the rain gain advantage on saving throws against contracting diseases. When the effect ends, the lands return to their normal fertility and rain amounts over a course of 30 days unless it is blessed again by this staff.
If you want to see more of our items you can check us out on our Website, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, or Instagram where we post them regularly. You can also find us at our Discord server where you can hang out and chat with the community.

What would it take to get @staff to notice that anonymous harassment is a problem and that blocking an IP address or disabling anonymous asks are not solutions.
Also, if you're thinking that "reporting" is an option, it's not. What you get is a form letter detailing how to block the anonymous ask but warning that the person could still send more asks using a different IP address. Even if what you reported was a violent threat.
It's absolutely ridiculous that Tumblr doesn't take this seriously. That people who have faced months of harassment by the same person or people using different IP addresses just have to suffer or cut off all anons.
Even if this doesn't affect you, please help me ask @staff to do better.

Astrologers constantly have their gaze toward the heavens, calculating the universe’s many rotations and paths. They believe these things to be tied to the idea of fate, but this is just one of many of their theories.

I love that musk is groveling asking people to pay for their blue checkmarks while tumblr's fundraising solution was to sell a tiny shitting horse, shoe laces, forced post visibility, and crab rain

Years ago, when Tumblr was still owned by Yahoo, Yahoo wanted Tumblr to use their video player, rather than Tumblr's own video player. This was partially to unify analytics, but mostly because Yahoo planned to put pre-roll ads on Tumblr videos. You know those unskippable Youtube ads? That's what was going to happen to Tumblr videos.
The only reason it didn't happen out is because Tumblr staff pushed back on the idea, saying it was absolutely idiotic and would anger users beyond their breaking point.
The next time you're angry at staff for fucking up something a lil bit, or trying to make money in some optional way, keep this in mind.

Tumblr and the No Good, Very Bad Idea
So. You might have heard the news that, as of July 12, Tumblr is testing out converting GIFs into looping MP4 videos to help pages load faster:
Tumblr media
This is bad. Tumblr is the only mainstream site left where you can post GIFs and they’ll continue to be GIFs - well, sort of, as Tumblr previously tested and implemented turning GIF into GIFV with the same purpose, and it decreases the quality of the original GIF file. Turning them into MP4 videos is even worse.
GIFs are GIFs. They’re not videos. Creators spend hours making a GIF that will look good as a GIF, not as a video.
I hope I don’t need to explain to anyone why continuing to screw over creators is bad for a site like Tumblr, whose continued existence depends on creators not giving up on it, and why gif-making is important to fandom existence.
I for one will not continue to make any more gifsets if I know they’ll just be turned into MP4 files. It’s disappointing to spend my time making something and watch it become ugly once it’s uploaded - and that’s what is already happening without the MP4 conversion.
Don’t bother sending a support ticket! They will tell you to do what I’m about to tell you:
Send an ask or submission to @wip​ - the official “work in progress” blog of Tumblr where people can send in suggestions.
Their ask box is open every Monday from 6AM to 6PM EST.
Tumblr media
The conversation isn’t over, guys, but it’s important to be a part of it. If you’re a creator or support creators (and you should), then set an alarm on Monday and go send them a message.

Despite the fancy survey, changes to the UI and TOS reveal we’re getting the service in the future whether we want it or not. Obviously, Post+ is a terrible idea that is trying to bank revenue on user content. Unlike patreon or onlyfans, tumblr’s primary focus is on FAN content. The legality of this is NOT in the users favor and as the new tumblr TOS states, said users will be entirely liable for whatever legal matters arise.
Besides filling out the survey, it’s time to show tumblr we mean business and show our displeasure by hitting them where it hurts.
Ad revenue.
We’re proposing a 24 hour log off as phase one of this protest.
August 6th 2021
12 am Eastern Time (US)
4am UTC
5am BST/London
6am Central Europe Time
7am Moscow Standard Time
9:30 Indian Standard Time
12 noon Hong Kong Time/Australian Western
1:00 pm Japan Standard Time
1:30 pm Australian Cental time
2:00 pm Australian Eastern Time
August 5th 2021
11pm Central Time (US)
10pm Mountain Time (US)
9pm Pacific Time (US)
So no posting, no queues, no likes, and no reblogs!
Like this post and share it AS MANY TIMES AS POSSIBLE. Use the hashtags #tumblrlogoff2021 or #postplusprotest on ANY and ALL social media.
Maybe, maybe not. It’s an attempt at doing SOMETHING.
