We posted an update about this back in April, and now as of July 1st, it’s really, really here, for everyone: the old dashboard has been replaced with our brand new web experience on desktop. This has been a very long time in the making, and the primary reason behind it is to make the desktop web experience of Tumblr easier to maintain and build on...
staff: Dusting off the cobwebs Over the past couple of weeks, we have slowly rolled out a spiffy new version of Tumblr on the web. Here’s a smattering of goodies in the update: Dark mode is now available on the web! Along with a few other color schemes, too.

This is a great follow up question! First of all: this is definitely in the realm of possibility and it’s something we’ve thought of before. At Tumblr, we’ve done some absolutely wild things at scale. When it comes to Posts on Tumblr, that’s where our scale gets really mind-blowing. In order to process something that could affect almost every Post record...
Yeah, great question. This is a flaw (partially, because it’s also an optimization) in how reblog trail storage was originally designed. It’s what we’d call an “edge case” because it’s rare.
