I FOUND IT! I FOUND THE ANSWER!
Okay, maybe not the final answer, but part of the problem! Asks keep getting eaten. Which is a big problem when you’re doing something anon and don’t want to ask the person “did you get it”?
If the ask contains an ellipsis without a trailing space, it gets eaten. It says delivered, but it goes nowhere.
So “Well… then” will get delivered but “Well…then” won’t!
Hopefully this helps in getting your asks actually delivered.
Post I made for my RP account, but very relevant elsewhere.
After discovering this, I tested it. Five different accounts between two people, anon vs not. No matter what, without fail, if the trailing space was missing, the message was not delivered.
I contacted Tumblr staff. They were already fully aware this was happening, but it is not documented anywhere. Nor do they seem keen on giving their users a warning about it in any fashion.
Help me spread the word because the staff won’t!
WHAT EVEN THE HELL
Just found out this is a thing :D.. tested it, too.
Might answer some of the questions of why your asks aren’t answered, be aware.
A helpful note for all who send in asks! ^^
What the fried fuck, Tumblr.
Oh my god.
me: *points at the game about a hole in the sky* Dragon Age.
me: *points at the game about dragons* Skyrim.
Me, talking about whatever I’m hyperfocused on: *very excited and happy to talk about said thing, is genuinely enjoying the conversation*
Friend: *says nothing, does not respond, doesn’t react in anyway*
Me, wringing my hands nervously: so um, anyways, let’s talk about Normal Stuff(TM)
so catchy it hurts
I’m not one for speeches. I just want to say I’m grateful to be back. And there’s one person in particular I want to thank. Uh, someone who never gave up on me. Um, he had it rough with me. ‘Cause I’ve been stubborn.
