Here are some useful extensions, scripts, and tutorials for Tumblr. Scripts require a simple, one click install for Google Chrome. Firefox users may need to download Greasemonkey first before installing scripts.
As far as I know, these scripts/extensions can work together.
I’ll add more links as I think of them, and feel free to share your own tips or resources.
- Missing E - Probably the most popular Tumblr extension. Features: one click reblog/queue/drafts, automatically clears all tags when reblogging, adds tags to ask/reply, allows one click reply to comments, shuffle queue, adds timestamp to posts on your dashboard, replaces text (reblog, notes) with picture icons, and more. Downside: Tumblr apparently hates Missing E, and will try to scare you into disabling it.
- Xkit - Similar to Missing E. Some additional features: Unfollower check, shorten long posts on dashboard, highlight key terms in posts, download mp3 from audio posts.
- Tumblr Savior - Blacklist tags that you do not want to see on your dashboard. Downside: Not everyone tags.
Some selections from a larger collection of scripts (please note that I don’t use all of these, so I don’t know which ones still work):
- Tumblr Life - Quick links to sort your dashboard by content (photos, text, quotes, video, etc), adds keyboard shortcuts.
- Tumblr Hate - Do you keep seeing the same post reblogged in your dashboard? This script lets you “hate” that post so you won’t see it again.
- Tumblr Helper - Create post templates with common settings, add personal notes to users on your dashboard
- Tumtaster - download mp3s from tumblr
- Notification eraser - Maybe you have one post that keeps getting a ton of notes and you want the notifications to stop showing up in your dash.
- Tumblr Stats - hover over an avatar to see a user’s stats

we all masturbate in the same language

“Not since the accident.” can be the answer to any question.
you guys are leaving out “think of the children” as a way to persuade anybody to do something for you
“but everything changed when the fire nation attacked”
i am so slow
you can look at the posts on a certain day?

Yo this NEEDS some fic to clarify the images because right now it’s not looking super consenty.
And here I am again, caving to my own demands:
Hater had just gotten home from a long day sending ‘LOL THIS SUX WATER U STUPID?’ to a vast array of inboxes. He closed the door and before he could even unzip his hoodie something grabbed him from behind. Hater flailed wildly, attempting to throw a punch only to have it connect with a dark, writhing mass. It flowed around him and abruptly he found the smiling eyeless face of Creepy under his hand. It was fucked up when Creepy just shape shifted like that, and Hater pulled his hands back.
“Shit, Creepy!” Hater huffed. Creepy only grinned.
“Welcome home,” Creepy purred “Bad day today? You feel so…tense…”
Creepy’s tendrils moved sinuously along Hater’s back, and he found himself sighing.
“A bunch of these touchy SJA assholes teamed up and got me banned and then one of them found my facebook and now they’re all just reblogging my name over and over.”
“Tragic,” Creepy said, flowing around him. “Perhaps I can think of something to…ease your mind…”
“You can’t keep doing this,” Hater said, feeling his face flush, leaning back against Creepy’s flowing form as one of Creepy’s tendrils found its way under the edge of his hoodie. “Breaking and enter is-”
“Creepy? I did leave you a note this morning.”
“Shut up,” Hater said, unbuttoning his fly.
“Oh does that mean I’m not invited anymore?” Creepy hissed, his breath unnervingly cool against Hater’s neck. “Should I go away?”
“Don’t you fucking dare,” Hater replied.
No, no, no, no, you guys aren’t going to suck me into another fandom like what happened with JupiterxEarth and the Milkyway fandom nope, nope…….Ah fuck I’m shipping anons now whyyyyyyyyy?
Oh gods….it’s gotten 5000000% better since I last saw it! XD
is there any Cute anon and Sexy anon art or fic somewhere?
As soon as you turn the lights off start masturbating. No monster wants to see that shit. While doing it, stare at the corner and whisper, tenderly, “this is for you”.
And then the shadows growl at you and say, “Mine. You’re all mine.”
Proceed to have a secret relationship with the monster in your closet to make the shadows jealous.
Plot Twist: The Monster wants a threesome with you and the shadows.
I found this oddly arousing.
i like my men how i like my tea
thrown in the boston harbor
I like my men like I like my wine.
Twelve years old and locked in a basement.
I like my men how I like my meat
ground up and in the freezer
I like my men how I like my books
bound in leather
I like my men how I like my homework
spread all over the table
one on top of the other
I like my men how I like my girls
Pretty and witty and gay
