Thinking if there's enough interest and possibly help, that I might try to create a new "totally not a mlkshk ripoff" type place for us. I mean I've got enough server resources (and domains) sitting around and enough experience with building these types of sites.
It's just I'm not a great design guy and have sporadic blocks of free-time during the week.
This has been the site I check first and last when I sit in front of the screen. I can't imagine a place that can replace what was here. The perfect organic content sieve, a level of maturity I have not encountered on other social sites, and just the joy of sharing. I wish I had everyone's shakes to download. A time capsule of the site on its last and richest day would be invaluable, but a mammoth task to take upon.
I have this free tumblr theme for you, should you want it. It's kind of optimized for animated gifs and Mlkshk-type content. I might make a version inspired by Mlkshk colors later. https://github.com/nsteiner...
❤️ to the great community here, and the team behind the site. Cheers.
