how to block certain anons – at your service.
requested by @leciasxmusesHey guys, so recently in our inbox, we got a submission about anon hate and tracking IP addresses of anon asks. Sadly, I’ve been doing some research and with the new tumblr asks, I cannot find any way to track the IP address but you can block the IP address from sending any more anon messages to your inbox. So if you are getting anon hate or say someone is taking advantage of your triggers, this is how you block an anon’s IP address, it’s simple and actually a tumblr feature:1. Go to the message in the inbox and press the three grey dots in the corner of the message. 2. Press the block button3. Click the blue ‘Block’ and this will block and anonymous messages from that IP address from getting sent to your inbox. You can still get sent messages from the actual account but not! You have now blocked that IP address from sending you anon messages. It’s not a perfect fix but it’s something. I hope this helps someone out there!
