If you haven’t noticed, Tumblr updated a few things today. We just updated our banner, and you guys should too!
EDIT: To change your banner, go to tumblr.com/settings. In the top right there should be an “edit appearance” button, and you can change the banner from there!
The tumblr community guidelines are gold
And the answer came back in a single sentence:
Because of you, Saturday, November 23, 2013, The Day of The Doctor, was the biggest television event they’d ever seen on Tumblr.
5.0 million posts
4.9 million reblogs
3.1 million likes
1.0 million contributors
It was bigger than the VMAs, the Super Bowl, and the Grammys…
We’ve always said that the Doctor Who fandom on Tumblr was bigger on the inside. Now we all have a better idea of just how big that inside is.
And what’s amazing is we’re still growing.
It was just a little blue box.
But it was so much bigger on the inside.
when ur post gets popular and superwholock people start adding comments
Ok, we’re taking a break for now. Our
spam posts will slow down for the rest of the day although we’ll still be in our dashboards (as we always are) queuing up reblogs for the rest of the evening.
Tomorrow will probably be a big press day, with lots more video and interviews and coverage to share. In the meantime, check out what the rest of the fandom has to say on the doctor who tag on Tumblr.
This is one of those crazy weekends where you really get a sense of how incredible this fandom is. There has been over 590,000 notes on the Doctor Who Tumblr alone since the morning following the announcement. And as big as that sounds, this blog is a mere a speck compared to the size of the Whovian fandom on Tumblr.
But this is what the new (spoiler free) Twelfth Doctor was talking about tonight when he said that the reason why the Doctor has existed for 50 years is because of the fans.
The love Whovians have for this show could fill all of time and space. We understand that. And we hope that we do you proud.
To be fair, we know that many of you can’t be on Tumblr right now.
But also to be fair to us, we’ve received a few of these as fanmail which means that you’re on Tumblr right now.
(If you missed the Whopocalypse that just transpired, check the Doctor Who Live tag on our blog.)
I HAVE FOUND EVERY COLOR CRAYOLA HAS MADE INTO CRAYONS AND RENAMED THEM BASED ON SOME POPULAR TUMBLR FANDOMS.
Some of the shades in between got named weird because I ran out of ideas. I worked on this for a week, guys.
Based on this post.
Oh my god, this is legitimately one of the best things I’ve ever seen here on tumblr.
And the fact that I got all of these references.
Ingredients: Sherlock, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Homestuck, Marvel; may contain less than 2% of The Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, and other assorted natural fandoms.

I needed this. Thanks.
