    I'm curious; in what was do you feel Tumblr was restrictive?
    One example I can think of was the 10 image limit, but if you've encountered a 30-image Post of nonsense here you quickly come to appreciate that. You could keep that feature, but it needs to go under a cut after 10.
    What other limits?

    For me these were a daily annoyance:

    Maximum of 200 scheduled posts a day.

    Maximum of 300 total posts a day.

    The interface was so slow to use i only ever used the 3rd party mobile apps or systems like archive poster (which is amazing by the way).

    To answer your question Jennie let me say I may have not been clear. It happens. There is no way to know how other people think 100% of the time. So when I say restrictive, I mean in the 6 plus years I was there what I noted was a slow but steady movement toward the business model goal to become main stream. To do so, it became a place that restricted the ability of blogger's expression of ideas.
    For example, If you ever looked in on the trending page. It was never geared toward anything any of us post on this site. So for all of its claims of being edgy and home of the rebels. It kept people's expression with a defined goal to become mainstream. To get the truck ads and insurance ads flowing.

    To put it simply, it was ideologically restrictive.Which the site ultimately demonstrated in its December purge.

    So to rephrase my question... How or what can we suggest to ensure this sites doesn't fall into thinking the grass is greener on the other side, but instead, do the work to keep it green and healthy right were we are.

    I think the very nature of this site will prevent that. This site is inherently non mainstream; it would be like porn hub banning porn.

    Every post on my tumblr blog included the tags "nsfw" and "porn", on the basis that people could filter that if they wanted. There was a banner 18+ warning in the description, and regular posts that that effect as well.

    Here the ToS are 18+. The very existence of this site is tied directly to porn. Such warnings are largely unnecessary; every post is presumed nsfw unless tagged as sfw. This is even reflected in the ads they show here - they're adult services ads, not TikTok or uterine fibrosis ads.

    Simply put, this site isn't about some artistic creation that happens to allow nsfw content, this site is about porn.

    The even shorter answer is to click an ad banner every once in a while and make sure the site gets some revenue. Webonomics 101. (And no, they did not pay me for that.)
