    My main tumblr account that usually gets 80+ new followers a day for the last few days has just stalled. I can see new followers but its extremely low, like 7 new followers a day. Not only that but my total follower count is no longer going up but its going down. It's weird going from +80 followers a day to going like -2 followers a day.

    Not sure if tumblr is cracking down maybe in fact all the followers I got were bots and now tumblr is no longing adding people who add and immediately delete, or if I'm in some sort of sandbox or something?

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    BTW, I've never used any bot or software on this account.

    There were many posts about people saying all their tumblr accounts got banned, i mean like in mass amounts.
    There was one who got 300+ banned and another 200+ banned.
    So maybe they are getting more strict and cracking down botters right now

    Makes sense. Only thing is, I used to check my emails of new followers and most had profile pictures and looked legit. I still get spam adds and I know what they look like but even normal adds seem to be down.

    It does look like tumble is cracking down or changed their algo though, perhaps all these adds I had before were instant unfollows right after and now tumble is no longer counting that.

    The good news is, engagement is the same. I am still getting a good amount of notes. It's just trippy when you go from 80+ followers a day to losing followers. Not sure what gives. But I do know yahoo owns tumble now. And last I heard they were trying to eliminate porn. Not my niche. But a large portion of tumble is.

    i have seen this on several accounts as well ...... others are still gaining nearly the same amount on new followers.
    hard to say ......

    what i have seen in the past is that you loose a lot of new followers if tumblr sets your blog on NFSW.

    Yep me too, but this account isn't nsfw, so its weird. I have two other accounts that are gaining new followers at a normal pace though. I Don't post porn but I have posted sexy stuff before but not all the time, I'm wondering if one of my followers reported it and tumblr manually set me to nsfw.
