    Go to tumblr.com and click on "Get started". Do you get the following yahoo sign up page?

    Yeah, this fuckers implemented OpenID. Yesterday I wrote the code to automate this new login :D (+- 300 lines of code) And added it to my poster. I still need to adapt my other scripts xd

    All new accounts go with Open ID. Old accounts can continue login the old way.

    I create my accounts using the Tumblr app for Android. They haven't implemented the OpenID method there, so sign-up is still an easy thing to do

    With the way they implemented OpenID not it EASIER to make a fully automated account creator. with 0 cost. In fact, I made it.
    But, the problem is that I have 40 accounts... Posting every 10 min with 30 random tags from a preset, with clickthought and links on caption, following every day, and liking 1000 every day. And I'm not able to drive more than 200 uniques per day. Day by day Tumblr its getting more and more DEAD to me.

    Anyone is having any success ? o_O

    30 tags for every post ? Damn, this must look very strange in dashboard :eek:. Also no human will reblog your post if you don't reblog theirs, your like is not enough.

    It isn't forcing you, I created a client account just today.

    Just enter an email address etc and sign up, no need to go near Yahoo.

    For old accounts maybe, for new accounts they're forcing it. If you can signup with old system you're lucky or they haven't deployed it in your geo.

    I'm doing general adult tumblr blogs, CPA, crakrevenue.
    Are you using CPI ?
    How many blogs you handle or how many uniques per day ?

    I can fully customize my tag lists and the number of tags the scripts use. I did tests with just five tags (thats whats searchable) and with 30 that is the limit... I did manual reblogs, and the results were the same. No followers, no reblogs, no traffic.

    For a while there it did stop, or you could register normally through the app but on computer it'd require Yahoo, but now it requires Yahoo no matter what.

    Except.... that was years ago, this only started happening recently.

    November it started, then around late December early January they rolled it back and you could make accounts the old way again... and then some time in February it started requiring the extra layer of registration again.

    You might be thinking about how Yahoo is being bought by Verizon right now... Just watch a few months from now you'll have to register a tumblr, a Yahoo, and a Verizon account. lol
