    Hi,
    I’m in the process of importing my Tumblr blog as a backup in case something happens to the site/my account there, and I’m wondering what constitutes a mature blog as far as swearing is concerned.

    I want my blog to be easily found in search for the people who are migrating over from Tumblr and I don’t know if being marked as mature would affect that, but I also don’t want to accidentally violate the terms of service if my occasional swearing means I need to be marked mature.

    I don’t have any posts as of yet because my Tumblr is still being imported, this is just a precautionary move so I know where to go from here.

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is rachaelmhill.home.blog.

    Hi rachaelh1014,

    Thanks for checking on this. Content containing offensive language falls unde our mature content policy. However, we’ve checked your Tumblr site and that content won’t need to be marked as mature in this particular case.

    I’ve double checked to confirm your import is indeed still queued. It didn’t cancel. But please do reconnect to your Tumblr account if you’ve disconnected it.

    We’re processing quite a few imports from Tumblr at the moment, which is causing a backlog of imports in our system. While it may look like your import failed, it’s just in line for processing, and luckily it’s still in the queue. Please allow this to run for the next 24 hours, and if it hasn’t completed by then, update us here.

    Hi,
    I’m not sure whether I’m supposed to start a new thread, or if you meant I should reply to this one. It’s now been over 24 hours, and it still looks like the import has made no progress.

    I’m a little anxious, to be honest. I understand that with so many people migrating from Tumblr there’s a lot of overflow, and I’m ok with having to wait, this is just the only viable backup option I’ve been able to find so far, and someone I follow on Tumblr was just hacked, and they’re unsure whether it’s related to the upcoming Tumblr purge. It’s made me more concerned about what will happen to my blog if I don’t manage to get it backed up by the 17th.

    My Tumblr isn’t explicit, but the algorithm over there is flagging everything.

    @rachaelh1014 ah, sorry to hear that.

    I can see this import is still in the queue. We don’t have an ETA at this point, but you’ll want to just let them keep running and keep an eye on this post for any updates:

    If you have more than 3GB worth of images in your blog, you’ll want to upgrade so that the import won’t run out of space. And, you can close your import window so long as you don’t remove the connection from Tumblr.

    Just to clarify, because I have no idea how many GBs of images I have–there’s six years worth of stuff on that blog, after all–if the import runs out of space, would it be possible to just restart the import to get the rest of the stuff onto my WordPress?

    I’m not sure I wanna pay for features on a platform I don’t yet understand, but I also don’t wanna lose part of my blog.

    @rachaelh1014 I can’t tell, but if you have a lot of animated gifs or large images in your posts, I would recommend upgrading to be sure.

    If we finish the import but don’t get all of the images in, we’d likely need to try the import again after you upgrade.

    What plan would I need to upgrade to? Would it be possible to upgrade, and then go back to a free plan after the import finishes?

    @rachaelh1014 you would go back to a 3GB limit and would be unable to add new images.

    Our Premium plan has 13GB of storage space. I’d recommend upgrading to that, then if you find your stuff fits within the 6GB allotted in Personal, we can help you downgrade.

    I think I may look for some other backup options, but thank you for being so kind in explaining all this.
