SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
that is the most beautifully worded thing I’ve ever read
Gheeeeeeeee, I’m having so much fun with this drawing right now.
It took me like eternity to make this since I wasn’t use to draw so many characters in one picture.
But here it is now: The infamous Unit Black Seven short B7 with every single member of this famous group
The Black unit was my attempt in giving normal people and humans in general a boost of power by giving them “Super” Powers they already have yet never knew they could do. Next to it I now have an excuse to make freakish tall people that are raging high! (Nyehehehehe!)
But aside with that for now, right now all I can tell is the names these top secret agents have gained as being members of this group and what their skill that makes them so weirdly dangerous.
Ottokar Kalju (on the very left) also known as “Palm-Palm Man” towers at a staggering 3.23 meters! (10’ 5”!) and is the lowest ranked Member of the B7 Unit having a Willstrength of roughly 55’000 Voluntas (how often a person can carry his own weight. Voluntas is latin for “Will” and is the unti to this number) Kalju controls the Palm Door Technique. A technique that makes his hands into gateways to other realms where he simply can just touch his target and send him off whereever he wishes to send them. Next to it he is backed up by the control of Ice and Fire making it even possible to engulf himself into the element he wishes to during combat.
To the Right is the smirking and mischievous Rocco Thorp simply called “Rucks” and is feared as the “Money Man” in the Unit. The second lowest ranked agent with a Willstrength of 65’000 Voluntas, is known for being a gambler and Poker all-star controls the Money Shot Technique. But don’t let the name fool you. This skill allows the Money Man to use small projectiles like a coin as a deadly projectile to flick off and control in mid air by curving it during it’s deadly flight.
Number Four on the List is the New Purgatorian man called Ivankov Stribog also known as “Thump Man” barely reaching Kalju with his 2.8 meters (9’ 1”) He trained in “New Eden”, a yet unexplored mortal world and main operation area of the Black Seven Unit, He reaches a Willstrength of 75’000 Voluntas and uses the Thump Combat Technique which is the control of the air around him to aid him in combat. By punching the air he can briefly compress the air before him and so cause shockwaves making it possible to hit enemies that far away from him at ease by simply punching the air.
The Next is the only woman and only non-human being in the group named Raquel Charis. With a Willstrength of a staggering 95’000 she is probably the most underestimated Agent of all. She gained the nickname of the “IronClad Lady” from her feared skill named “Electrial Denial” which grants her to manipulate all that is magnetic in a great radius.
The Second-In-Command stands by an impressive 105’000 Voluntas and is named Darius Stelios a.k.a “The Door-Door Man” a.k.a “the Coffee-Man” (as joked often by Rucks His long training in the Door-Door Technique paid off as he is able to create doors to other places in an instant by using a simple key as a handle to open his invisible door.
And last but not least is the leader of this lovely bunch of freaks feared by the name of Lukas E. Raleegan or known as “The Rumble Man” his inhuman training granted him a Willstrength of an unbeaten 175’000 Voluntas and an, until now unknown skill he calls The Rumble Ball. None of the other agents have seen their boss until now using this Rumble Ball before, but they all agree that it can only be something bad if only Lukas is granted to be trained for this skill.
Together Kalju, Raquel, Rucks, Ivankov and Luaks form Unit Black Seven the strongest unit of the Allied World Government and last line of defense against the fight of evil and corruption.

Formed shortly after the end of the Second World War, The Black Units were a line of secret agents funded by the Allied World Goverments - a secret alliance of states that were under the control of the Izanagi Corporation with the goal of sabotaging The Corporation and bringing it down, In total there are 7 known Black Units. The Seventh Black Unit, B7, is the strongest and most secretive unit of all and even feared amongst the lower ranked units, Unlike the other units, B7 only has 4 permamnent members and an unknown number of potential Agents that rise through the other Black Unit ranks to B7 to become permanent members as well.
What makes B7 Unique compared to Unit B0 until to B6 is their secret weapon called “Truth Based Combat” They do not require any sort of weapons as their own bodies are their weapons. Every member in B7 has trained their body to the extremes and beyond thickening the bond between their mind and their body. Giving them extreme reflexes and strength compared to the average human. Resulting from this they learned an old set of skills that are completely based upon the Truth. Known as the “Life Arsenal Techniques” They are able to shoot shockwaves stronger than real bullets from the tips of their finger, harden their bodies just as diamonds to block off attacks or even kick the air so hard that they can walk on it.
Their most famous deployment thus was their assault on Merry Good in New Sacramento, One of the Izanagi’s Major Base of Operations for the NextVanguard Programm where they have discovered a number of secrets of Project NextVanguard and about Subject Braen-15 also known as Jakob Blades’ daughter Abigail Blades.
Starting from here, Unit Black Seven will serve justice across Purgatorio and eradicate all impurities cast by Jakob Blades, the Izanagi Corporation and all that dare opposing the Allied World Government.
Go Figure out what these two things have in common
