Attention: Our favorite discontinued feature on Tumblr is BACK
Good news, world! Remember once upon a time on Tumblr, you could totally reply (or “comment”) on people’s posts without having to go through the somewhat more involved process of reblogging? Well, guess what: Replies on Tumblr are back and we couldn’t be happier.
The Internet is already buzzing with praise for the return of the old feature:
A bonus is that with the replies, they’ve also added some features to address the problem of harassment on the site (are you listening, Twitter and Facebook?). You can either allow for everyone to reply, for only those who you follow and follow back (after a week —so no newbies) to reply, or only those you follow to reply (which is considered safest). Awesome.
