- Your content will not be deleted. If your post(s) are flagged under the new policy, they will be hidden from public view and will only be visible to you. You can also appeal these flags if you feel your content was erroneously marked as adult. Upcoming feature changes will also make appeals more manageable for those of you with multiple flagged posts.
- Your blog won’t be deleted if you’ve posted adult content in the past, and there is nothing you need to do if you have liked, reblogged, or commented on adult content in the past—it will just be flagged and removed from public view.
- What is still permitted? We want to make it very clear: written content such as erotica, nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art, specifically sculptures and illustrations, can all still be freely posted on Tumblr.
- The automated tools will improve. Having a post mistakenly flagged as adult totally sucks; we understand and agree that there have been too many wrongfully flagged posts since we announced the policy change. The more you help, by reporting content that’s not permitted and by appealing content that you believe was flagged incorrectly, the better our automated tools will get at classifying your posts correctly.
