    Out of ALL of the Tum$lr bots i've used (and I have used pretty much all of them) PRTB was and still is my favorite.It was easy to work with, straight forward with alot of great features.

    Unfortunately, the developer stopped supporting it .
    Just wondering if anyone out there (including the developer) is still using it.

    Never used it myself, nor looked at it. But would love to hear your thoughts on :

    * why it was so easy to work with,
    * what great features it had other programs didn't have
    * how you used it (without giving away secrets obviously)



    disclaimer: dev of another tumblr bot looking for ways to improve :)

    I am:) Now only to load up the queues but when I first stared I was using the full range of option. Great software and probably the best $37 I've even spent on a bot

    Anybody knows if there's any chance it gets back? I signed up for the developer's newsletter in case it returns, but got spammed to hell, so unsubscirbed.

    Seems like the dev moved on. At one time I was in touch with his assistant, but last i spoke to him he said that the dev was moving on from it. SUCH A SHAME. I made good money using this bot and the support was excellent for a good 2 years considering the cost.

    * why it was so easy to work with,
    The interface was easy on the eyes and very intuitive. Also there was CLEAR instructions in the form of .pdf and tutorial videos.
    Of course there was also a forum.
    The bot was designed for anyone (non tech types as well) to purchase and get up and rolling quickly, without a bunch of extra studying and/or a learning curve. Again intuitive and quick.
    * what great features it had other programs didn't have
    Had all of the same features of your bot and most others aside from the ability to post on secondary blogs, but I had an even cheaper bot I paid $15 for and used for that purpose.
    * how you used it (without giving away secrets obviously)
    Used for Adult & Non Adult niches. Monetized on tum$Lr with iframes and simply pushing traffic to my network of money sites
    .

    I actually contributed to several key updates in terms of suggestions. What I liked most about the developer is he was keen to take those things into consideration and quickly add them to updates
    .

    My guess is that the developer moved on because he sensed that TUMBLR is a dying network and its not worth the effort to keep developing the bot since less and less people are on it. Don't get me wrong - you can still get some traffic from there but its getting killed in the SWF part by Instagram and Pinterest and all those random bans put regular users off.
    NSFW ain't much better - it's as spammed as Twitter and the bans are daily, ain't worth the effort for us marketers or even normal users since they will get banned eventually sooner rather than later.
    Yahoo geniuses pretty much killed it and it's basically the new MySpace.

    I dunno about that, but I do know it seemed that he had BIGGER fish to fry.
    As for Tum$lr there's still money there. True it's gotten a hell of alot more saturated since the time when I was alot more active with it.

    I'm still making $$$ and i'm not even in full mode like I used to be.
