Probably better to let Tumblr know first, then us.

Edit: just confirmed that it works.

Basically let's you search users by id or email then give you ability to change their email/reset password.

For the curious, it looks like this:

Admin dashboard: http://img.skitch.com/20080415-ef6k9c8hpbasi9g137j6u4iqrs.jp...

Clicking "password": http://img.skitch.com/20080415-day5r87i8tbt9iaqrtf73tpnnd.jp...

Clicking "email": http://img.skitch.com/20080415-bg12j2y7wxmeqn44pmctcs69e3.jp...

And clicking "edit" tumblog: http://img.skitch.com/20080415-cg7iwrmc7gu2a58qkmcnfre6ka.jp...

Don't worry, I didn't do anything!


I just shot them a mail to let them know.

Ironically they don't obey one of the primary rules of usability for websites: have a link to contact info on the front page.


I've complained about it before. Not only is it not on the front page, for a long time it just did not exist.


Interestingly, I've looked at your comment about 10 times and just now noticed that you transposed the 'm' and 'b' in Tumblr. :)


Whoops. Well they've done studies to show common typos don't affect the meaning too much. I've updated it though -
