Refreshing our Community Guidelines


Every so often, our Legal and Policy teams review Tumblr’s Community Guidelines to make sure they’re crisp, clear, and—most important of all—an accurate reflection of our community and its values.

Here’s a quick summary of some changes we’ve made (which you can see in detail over on GitHub):

  • Clarified our policy around promoting terrorism (don’t do it).
  • Reinforced our policy on posting non-consensual pornography (don’t do it).
  • Updated our harassment policy to reflect our improved block feature.
  • Added a dormancy policy to release URLs and archive long-term inactive blogs.

Have a look, and feel free to email with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
