For Tumblr Inc. to release/delete suspended with no appeal and inactive* URLs for use by the public. (*6+ months inactivity)

There are blogs/users with inactive blogs who are holding up URLs for everyone else to use. People have resorted to hyphen glitching a URL just to have one that they desire because it's usually taken by a blog with 2 posts and last post was usually made 2 years ago. Not only would this benefit Tumblr by clearing up some 'dead space' on their servers but would also increase population morale and make the tumblr experience more enjoyable, while giving users a slightly more 'personal touch' over their choice of URL; rather than having to substitute letters and insert hyphens. Recently, I reported a URL that was legitimately creating spam posts, this blog was then 'suspended'. Tumblr claims in their ToS (Terms of Service) that they will suspend or terminate any 'subscriber' who solicits in spam or malicious content. What would be the purpose of suspending a spam blog or one of those "Tumblr IQ Survey" blogs? Delete it, and release the URL to be used by the community. ------------------------------------------------------ 3. Subscriber Content: Tumblr reserves the right to remove any Subscriber Content from the Site, suspend or terminate Subscriber’s right to use the Services at any time, or pursue any other remedy or relief available to Tumblr and/or the Site under equity or law, for any reason (including, but not limited to, upon receipt of claims or allegations from third parties or authorities relating to such Subscriber Content or if Tumblr is concerned that Subscriber may have breached the immediately preceding sentence), or for no reason at all. ~~~ 13. Termination Either party may terminate the Services at any time by notifying the other party by any means. Tumblr may also terminate or suspend any and all Services and access to the Site immediately, without prior notice or liability, if Subscriber breaches any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement. Upon termination of Subscriber's account, Subscriber’s right to use the Services, access the Site, and any Content will immediately cease. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability. Termination of Your access to and use of the Site and the Services shall not relieve Subscriber of any obligations arising or accruing prior to such termination or limit any liability which Subscriber otherwise may have to Tumblr or the Site, including without limitation any indemnification obligations contained herein.

  • Lucas Fenstermacher I've come across accounts that have actually been deleted by the users who once owned it and still you cannot get the URL you want because it says Someone has already claimed the username "insert username already claimed here" when the account no longer exists and it's frustrating because I had to literally wait years before I could actually get the username "dazedinsanity" as for others whom have had to wait by the time tumblr finally removes the user completely from their database the bloody username is claimed once again. I save my usernames not gonna deny it but it's only because I plan to randomly use them again and if I KNOW that I am not going to use them any more I always make a post and let my followers know that I am no longer using the following usernames so I am giving them away and people usually inbox me and ask can they use a specific URL if I plan on using it I let them know that I am if not I let them know that I will delete the blog that bares the username they want and then I message them afterwards so that they can quickly grab it before someone else unintentionally does. So the people who are complaining you can always ask the person can you get the username because usually people whom you think are inactive aren't really inactive they just aren't using that specific username atm, some of the users on tumblr are pretty friendly and will gladly let you have a username all you have to do is ask them it's not hard. And if Tumblr suspends a blog it won't be out of their database completely because it's just suspended trust someone got hacked and their blog was deleted by the hacker and finally I thought yes I can get the username I want but sadly they had it then but not any more and so I try and it says Someone has already claimed the username "insert username already claimed here" and I go are you bloody serious because it specifically says the account didn't exist on Tumblr. I feel that Yahoo isn't doing anything really I don't know why they even bought Tumblr because it isn't improving it's still stuck and they never listen to the users who without us this freaking website would have fallen years ago, so if they'd delete the users completely from their database it would be lovely so that I can finally use the username I really want :)
