    Hi,

    I am going to second this. Reblog, when it goes to your dashboard and not the queue, is really annoying. 

    I either need to be able to turn this feature off or it needs to go to the queue.

    I want to explain why this is important. And why I advocate for people using their queue instead of auto reblogging on the spot.

    I follow 190 blogs. At least 50% of these blogs follow 50% of the same blogs I follow.

    So I post a story and everyone thinks it is amazing!

    Sarah reblogs in, Josh reblogs it, David reblogs it. Now Nancy logs into her dashboard, and she is also following me, Sarah, Josh and David. And guess what she now has a dashboard filled with the same story over and over. The story no longer becomes interesting instead it turns into spam.

    The same happens with pictures. Suddenly the picture is spammed everywhere, and it no longer becomes interesting.

    This also means when someone new to the BDSLMR community logs in and starts looking at the dashboard or tags they will find a lot of repeats in a short period of time, making it less appealing and less likely to stay.

    I hope this helps to explain why this feature is causing so many problems right now. 

    Thank you for your hard work, I do appreciate that you keep trying to make changes. I will try to post more over here regarding what I am seeing as an activity blogger.

    Fondly,

    Just checking - does anyone have the ability to re-blog to another blog any more - I seem to ONLY be able to fast reblog now - I cant choose another blog and add comments etc. (might be a defect - might by my device - i've not tested it yet)

    Yes. You have to do a quick tap to do the old fashioned way, and long press for quick blog.
    A bunch of people on my feed are really unhappy.

    We have two new updates coming for the quick reblog.

    Possibility to quick reblog into queue:

    This will be added very soon, it's already in the plans.

    Possibility to disable quick reblogs:

    We aim to add this in the next 24 hours (more likely coming in the next few hours though)

     

    About the problem with certain devices quick reblogging too easily: 

    We rolled out stability fixes so that it works as it's stabile on all devices. Hold to quick reblog, tap to reblog the "old" way.

    Hello

    Thanks for this - I understand what is happening now. The problem is if I am browsing on my phone, it happens quite often that I am holding without realising. Will the fix prevent that?

    Thank you.

    Yes it does. You can disable the whole feature then so you will not accidentally reblog anymore.
