Congratulations Verbose!!! You’re the latest KYM member to conquer EquestriaDaily. (and no less than First Paragraph too…)
Expect a lot of traffic on that survey…I’m looking forward to the results.

I’ve been thinking. Things haven’t been going well for me on this thread. People are annoyed with me and I can barely focus on pony talk. I feel like I don’t belong here because, well…….I just don’t know. Every time I come here I either get angry or very depressed. Same goes with my music. No matter how hard I try I just keep failing. Maybe it’s time that I just stopped trying and focus on my blog. I haven’t felt bad while working on it and maybe it’s what I’m mean to do. I don’t know. Sorry for everything. I’m tired of all the sadness and sorrow I experience when I come here. I want to go somewhere where I’m happy and this thread doesn’t seem like that place………here’s some mandatory pony:

Oh, dear Lord! You should have come to me sooner. You have been carrying all those stress.

I’ll prescribe you this…

Make sure to watch this at least 5 times a day. Each time after or before a meal.

Thanks. That really helped. I think I just need to take a hiatus from music and focus on my blog. I’ve had way more success with it than I have with my music. Also, I will stay on the thread if you add one thing. Some bucking fluffy ponies!

Season 1 Rarity squee. No offense but that may be the cutest squee ever! Not because Rarity is one of my favorites. But…..squeeeee! Also, Disney World isn’t just for kids/foals. It’s for adults and discorded Time Lords as well:

I never knew how adorable that marshmallow could be.

2206 responses.

Oh God what.
 
 
There were already some omissions in responses that I didn’t catch that I’m pretty embarrassed about (e.g., missing Gilda as a secondary character, not adding in fan game development for activities in the fandom,) but only the highest caliber questionnaires have surveys that cover everything in some way. That’s also what the limitations section of a paper is for. (Here are all of the things we did well. Here are the parts where we f*cked up at. Give us more money so we can do more research and so I can send my kids to a nice school.) I’ve also gotten a several emails which I imagine will be asking about some of the same things, but it’s cool. Your community should always be a part of a survey in ways that is more than just responding.

As for congratulations, none should be given until we know we have decent data. But yeah, it’s nice to see my username on EqD. That’ll be the only thing it’s up there for though. opspe and RandomMan were in the email I sent to EqD and Calpain (thanks to him for looking through it and giving me tips,) but the copypaste only had my email in it, so they didn’t show up.

FOR SCEINCE!

@Ric
If that’s from what I think it’s from…………MY GOD. They did NOT just do that! They did not just associate my Luna with that show. But, hell, it’s the internet. Nothing is sacred here. I’ll just have to accept it.


As for keeping this pony-related, what the hell is with the image gallery? There’s a bunch of pics asking why there are so many humanized ponies. Anyone got an answer?

@Pyro:

I know how you feel. Everything on the internet has to be corrupted and twisted. It’s so annoying. There’s the .mov series as well as Ask Japple-ack. Ugh….

@Ideo
Well, I happen to like the .mov series, as well as the cast of characters it brings. You don’t, that’s fine by me. I only have a couple issues with that pic, though:
1. They put the best cartoon show (by that, I mean out of the ones still on-air) with one of the ones that stopped being funny around 2005.
2. It was Luna that got picked for this. Celestia is the bigger troll, why not her? It just doesn’t seem to fit the Princess of the Night.
Other than that, it’s damn funny.


Also, have this awesome piece of Ponies crossed with orchestral rock:

The pic is supposed to make Twi look insane. It’s based off of “Lesson Zero”.

I don’t know why people think I made this a strictly Derpy thread. The subtitle is irrelevant. This is just where people post and discuss ponies. I put it in the first danged post.


Oh, and just because my name happens to be the email doesn’t mean opspe and Random aren’t as involved. opspe can tell you that my knowledge of statistical analyses is rather basic. They were in the submission email, but my email was the only one listed to receive comments and criticism.

A creature is considered carnivore if it actually consumes Protein that originates from an animal, and since Ponies eat hay and flowers and such, that makes them Omnivores like us…

I still think that eggs do not contribute to a non-vegetarian diet :/

@Verbose:

Is this the new Survey you got up? I already took the old one a few weeks ago so should I take this one as well? I recall you re-did it or something…..

Well, I feel like a jackass. I had a little to much to drink and spilled the beans about My little Pony. I told my friend how I buy the toys and style the hair, about fighting is magic, and of course how I watch the show every saturday. At least he is a really good friend and he told me not to worry about it. He just teased me a little about Pegasus and Unicorns. Still, I can’t help but just feel dumb.

Yes, this is the one built to be easier to code and analyze. I’ve separated the results from the first survey and the second, because they’re now different enough to be considered different questionnaires, so if you’d like to take it again, by all means.


@Dr. Horse
I had a feel…


When you see it, you’ll question her costume making abilities.
 
Speaking of monochrome/greyscale/whatever it’s like black-and-white I’m a pseudo-scientist not an artist!

KP-ShadowSquirrel is the only artist that has art of that quality that varies from the FiM design significantly enough (in my opinion) without looking too weird.
 
Also, let’s see you curse this in Mario Kart!

Ooh, that could have turned out really badly.

But, congrats on having understanding friends. They wouldn’t really be friends if they didn’t understand you and disliked you for just liking something unusual.

So I’m happy it turned out well for you in the end.

@Verbs: It was a joke. Plus you were the only mod on at the time so…..there ya go. About .mov: I don’t like how the mane six act crude and offensive. First of all, they cuss like sailors. As far as I know, there are only two psuedo-swears in the show. Second of all, he made Flutters into a serial killer. That just crosses the line for me.

Um…..nnope. Never. No offense but that only makes things worse. It’s just another way people are obsessed with the .mov series. sigh

It’s called a parody, there’s nothing wrong with taking creative liberties. If a community can’t learn to make fun of itself it risks creative stagnation and self entitlement.

It’s not like HotDiggityDemon is telling you this is how the characters should be or how he sees them, it’s just a joke. Just there to add levity and take away some of the seriousness some people tend to build up towards what is extensively a fan club. This kind of overly critical defensive outburst is what makes Bronies such easy targets for trolls.

Just have a sense of humor about it and it’s not nearly as offensive as you think it is.

Hey brony, if you don’t like it, don’t look at it.

Look at this instead!
