samaralex asked: How many objects can fit in your Ask Hole at one time?
A lot! I have a gaping Ask Hole. As far as I know, it’s unlimited. But let’s find out together!
samaralex asked: The way I look at it, I wouldn't be following you (the general "you", not YOU you) if I didn't want to see what you blog. I don't really skip over anything. So for me, having an extra HEY LOOK AT THIS feature is just superfluous and annoying. And that's what hurt MySpace,Twitter and FB (IMO), they took a nice clean design and kept putting flashing lights on it to "improve it". When all Tumblr needs to do is copy what Missing E provides. *shrug* Just my 2 cents. Not a big deal either way.
Yeah, I see that point and it makes sense. But like I said, I miss a bunch of posts because so much goes by my dash while I’m away from the computer, that when I’m trying to catch up I tend to skim. And anything that isn’t extremely visually appealing, will probably get skipped over. So, for instance, a really good text post, will be missed, unless the author highlights it.
I think once the initial fervor passes, it won’t be such a common thing that it will clutter the dash.
I agree that the feature doesn’t gain you any extra exposure. I miss the old spotlight feature (I’m not sure that’s what it was called) where you could pay to be featured on the top of the page. I used that as a way to attract new viewers and it was really worth it.
But I think the value in the feature is being able to tell your viewers “THIS is something I worked hard on” or “THIS is something that is important to me.” A good example of this is a video that Nick Douglas released on Slacktory. I saw it and would have passed on it until later simply because I’m busy, but it was highlighted. And since I like and respect Nick, I thought, “I guess I’ll watch that now.” I’m glad I did because it was hilarious.
My main beef is with people who react negatively to change. The feature was live for less than an hour before I started seeing massive amounts of angry posts. Most people who were upset about it hadn’t even tried it yet, and none of us have had enough time to see how it will affect our normal daily Tumblr usage.
New features at Tumblr don’t always last long. That’s something I love about Tumblr. They are always changing.
