Today, 1st June 2015, Algy joins his friends in their campaign calling on Tumblr to Protect the Creators.
Tumblr does nothing to prevent rebloggers from removing the credits, captions and link-backs of original creative works posted here on Tumblr – posted free, by artists, photographers, writers and other creative people for the whole Tumblr community to share.
It takes a lot of time and effort to produce original work. Algy knows! So he joins the call to staff to take action to ensure that original work is reblogged in its original form, with all credits and captions intact, and always with link-back to the creator’s own blog.
Come on Tumblr, you can do it if you really want to! Protect the creators whose presence here on Tumblr makes it unique among social media platforms.
