Let's be honest, Tumblr is buggy as hell. And I'm sure a lot of users think the staff are using Missing E as a scapegoat to avoid actually having to do work. While I don't strictly believe this is true (hey, maintaining and running a site this big with this many users is bloody difficult if you're not using ads to pay for it, so it's not surprising they struggle, I have no idea how they even manage to fund themselves well enough to stay afloat at all). But that being said there are still some very major bugs that have affected functionality for a long time, and that seriously need sorting. Mostly I'm talking about ghost notes. For some users, when they like or reply to a post, the notes simply do not show up. And for some users, when people reblog their posts, they can't see the reblog notes on the post itself. Which makes communication difficult; how are you meant to speak to people if they can't see any of your replies, or if your asks vanish rather than sending? So I implore you, sign this petition so we can show it to Tumblr, show them how widespread this actually is, and hopefully they'll realise it's something that affects enough users to need fixing. I mean, yeah, I know we'd all like limits off asks, but that's an extra feature. Bug fixes are more important than features by far.
