Okay anon, let me stop giggling for a little bit and explain to you what happened.
"DashCon 2014": Was supposed to be a large con of mostly Tumblr users with a 65$ entry fee. They were going to host it in a Hotel in Schaumburg, IL. It looked like a fairly legit con to most users and promised to have Steam Punk Giraffe and Welcome to Night Vale show up for entertainment and panels. Steam Punk Giraffe canceled it’s trip to Dashcon months ago but the Con never told the people who already invested money into it, especially the people who paid extra for reserved seating. Welcome to Night Vale didn’t show up because they didn’t get their payment for the trip and thus didn’t go. Dashcon “apparently” got a call from the hotel telling them that the room they reserved would cost $17,000 and didn’t receive their payment. Dashcon then rallied up it’s participants for a fundraiser in 2 days to raise that money.
Well…They did. Where that money is now, no one knows. People showed up to a very empty room with no vendors. Someone bought a ball pit and rented a bounce house for the con and the people who reserved seats for the panels got an extra hour in the ball pit.
for anyone confused about what’s going on
oh my god
That sucks so hard
I just realized, it wasn’t a convention at all. It was literally a con.
petition for tumblr to add a setting where people have to request and wait for approval first to follow you and also a feature that lets you remove a follower if you ever needed to
i want to point out that this feature would be really useful for people who are being stalked online, in particular survivors of domestic violence
I came on this website for harry potter I did not expect to emerge as a multifandom feminist with a different sexuality
a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)
That’s exactly the appropriate response.

Because it was making him Moody.
