Phoenix-based Dark Cloud, an alternative media platform, announced it is launching a set of tools allowing Tumblr users to export their existing Tumblr content and rescue all of the data. The service will allow for a seamless transition of content between the old Tumblr site and the new Dark Cloud service. The key component of the Tumblr alternative is a direct converter that allows users to plug in their Tumblr URL and Dark Cloud does the rest. The converter will take an existing Tumblr account and import it into a Dark Cloud profile which will have similar functionality to the existing platform.

Tumblr announced last week that it will ban many categories of adult content across its platform, including “photos, videos, or GIFs” displaying explicit material, as well as “illustrations that [depict] sex acts.”

The controversial change will take effect on December 17; existing posts flagged by Tumblr’s censors as violating the new policy will be automatically set to private, meaning that no one will be able to see them other than the blog’s creator.

Greg Ninke, head of I.T. for Dark Cloud stated, “We are big believers in freedom of speech and freedom of expression. While we respect Tumblr’s decision to eliminate all adult content from their platform, we are happy to step in and provide that market segment with a high quality alternative.”
