So you all thought I was being insensitive or are you say that to the part where I think there might be karma trolls? (I am just trying to clarify).
Also for ponies:

No, I was saying we have karma trolls I think. I don’t think regular posters would downvote apologies taking all the blame or something completely unrelated. This post I quoted has 4 negakarma for some reason. It must be trolls.

Anyways, let’s discuss Saturday’s 2 parter everybody!

>Comes in for my daily dose of pony thread
>Starts reading posts
>Sees there’s been another shitstorm
>mfw

I won’t say anything about the ones involved or say I’m tired of this place. Just want you to know that I thought we were done with this kinds of things here.

Now, if you’ll excuse, I’ll be back to my pony posting.

Seriously guys? I specifically called for an image war page on the page get, not a flame war…

I went ahead and up voted all the negative posts, because they were seriously unwarranted. JJ, Cite, Dac, and Ric did sound a bit butthurt and prickish, but that’s no reason to neg bomb them. It happens to all of us sometimes, and we shouldn’t punish them unjustly for it. Remember what happened when the Allies destroyed Germany’s economy, prosperity, and military after WWI? Hitler ring a bell?

To all you invisible 12 negative karma givers, I say nay to your actions. I’m not going to blame anyone on this thread, though. As far as we know, it could be a bunch of anti-brony trolls negging everyone, trying to ruin our happy little place on the web.

Well, it’s not working. Please, get out before I’m forced to do something drastic.

Or, if some of those negs are coming from our very own little community here, remember, karma doesn’t do anything. Don’t think you’re helping anyone after the post is already hidden with -5 karma, and worse, don’t just continually neg posts just because someone disagree with you. Karma bombing every one of Cite and Ric’s posts was extremely undeserved. They were overreacting, and behaving poorly, but we could talk to them calmly instead of using the force of a – button to signal our disapproval.

After all, we didn’t neg bomb MisterDude1337’s post on page 74 that brought up Derpy again, didn’t we (inb4 someone does)? No, we had a calm discussion on it, and although jimmies were rustled, no flame war started.

And that was the end of our innocence self-control. After that post, the thread never would be the same. Anyone who mentioned Derpy’s change or showed the slightest bit of rage in their posts would be negged to oblivion.

And that’s stupid.

Seriously. It’s this way with most fandoms.

It just so happens that people like to make OC ponies that are so edgy you need band-aids.

Edit: @Ric: He’s a cyborg scientist with lightning and machinery I doubt ponies have.

I see no problems whatsoever.

No one wants to discuss the episode? Okay…

Also, brad bird needs to get his shit together and direct the incredibles 2, not mission im-poo-sible ghost protocol. Also Iron Giant 2

I don’t think I was meaning to sound dickish, I was actually kind of sick of this complaining about Derpy that I suggested to post ponies, but I guess it did made me sound like a dick and I am sorry, that was not my intentions.

What I am sick of is all the karma lately, it has been going wacky, not only in this thread but others as well, positive karma and negative karma alike. I swear it’s kind of annoying and I wonder if it’s even possible for any of us to know who exactly is doing it.

I hope the mods can figure this out soon, because karma is being abused like no other.

Don’t worry, I never for a second there thought you didn’t anything particularly wrong. There wasn’t anything wrong in your posts, people just went crazy with the negging, and once some guy sensed a hint of rage (that wasn’t there) in your posts, the neg bandwagon kept on going. Also, complaining about getting negative karma only got you more.

Apology accepted

This is exactly the kind of abuse I anticipated happening back in late February: http://knowyourmeme.com/forums/site-related/topics/14261-the-karma-system. We had a pretty good discussion about it, and we came to the consensus that the system was good, and no one would really take the time to abuse it.

And then this happened.

I mean it was being abused and no one seemed to be noticing it besides me because I thought people might of gotten bombed for no reason, or being negged much more or getting positive karma then what was necessary.
This thread is not the only one who experienced this problem.

Reason why I complain about it is because it seems to becoming kind of a actual problem…

I’ve noticed the karma negging/bombing before joining (when I was a full-time lurker). Never understood why on earth people would do that. Baffles me. If I give any out, it’s because I thought the person had a well-written post, of the photo posted was tasteful and/or wonderfully done. Ah well, guess I’ll figure it out some day.

In the meantime, here, because Fluttershy.

This post has been hidden due to low karma.
Click here to show this post.

Soooo…
I decide to come back and not say anything, and this forum is again in a negging frenzy.
You all know my opinion on the whole thing, so I have a suggestion:
-Next Time someone brings up the whole Derpy thing, then don’t neg them out and be dicks. Kindly ask them to keep it off the forum.
-If they say something regarding to action being taken, then still don’t neg them, instead, send them over to me, and I’ll PM them and hash it out with him/her.

See? You guys have less butthurt to deal with and my group benefits as well. Your forum stays mostly clear on the topic, and I get to recruit as well.
So what do you say, can you guys try this out?

My reaction to the down votes at 0:16



We already went through one shitstorm we do not need another one. Arguing will get us nowhere it will only divide us.



I welcome your apology Unknown. btw I found a retort to your holy hand grenade.



update: Are you guys serious? he is making a suggestion, opinions are fine as long as they do not or try to threaten or insult others. He does not deserve that karma bomb.

Well, that’s reasonable enough.

Except, we did specifically tell you that we weren’t having anymore of this derpy thing, and you said that you would leave stop.

And that’s a very one-sided argument. Our forum would stay clear of the topic, if someone didn’t have to bring it up every page. If you recruit people, what do we gain? Less shitstorms? I wonder who causes them anyway.

No point in trying again if it didn’t work the first time.

Personally, I strongly disagree with the pointless negs (see my first post on this page), but given the current state of the thread (and KYM as a whole), it’s almost like you’re asking for them.

We tried it once, it didn’t work. We welcome your group to stay here and discuss ponies, but please don’t bring up the same topic over and over again. There’s more to ponies than just Derpy, you know?


@Nostra
New member! Hmmm, I suggest you come back in a couple pages.

Well, at least I tried.
Oh well, back to buisness.
Lets talk about some:

I CLAIM THIS POST INTO THE NAME OF:

…ohhhh YEEEAAHHHHH

On a side note, the Red Dawn/MLP thing is coming along great. Got most of the story worked out and ready to write. Should be up on FIMFiction within the next two months. Also, there is a prequel on the line, to explain the burst in some of the technology the story presents.

So apparently I lost a bet with my friend. We were playing poker and we were playing for kicks. I said and I loving quote “If you win, I would give you 20 dollars, my marshmallow snack and I will do something stupid.”
He won, so he said this. "You will make your little Engie character marry that orange pony. Also you must yell out in the courtyard “I love mlp”."
Needless to say I proceeded to stand up and be in the middle of the yard and yelled it out. Someone joined me by yelling Fus Ro Dah…odd lunch. Weird school day to.
Also

I learned something today. My Engie can get married but needs to explain a few stuff. This should be interesting and he wants me to make a “Wedding Album”
Now if you need me I shall now think How the hell did he have that ace. While playing TF2.

In the two-part episode “A Canterlot Wedding,” the kingdom is in a frenzy preparing for the wedding of Princess Celestia’s niece, Princess Cadance, to Twilight Sparkle’s brother, Shining Armor. However, Twilight Sparkle discovers a dark secret about the bride that could ruin her brother’s “happily ever after.”

One word: Excitement.

Edit: Speaking of GMod, can anyone link me to the website? Been trying to find it for a while, but I can’t tell which is the legit one.

Missions Impossible Ghost Protocol was awesome.

Like the program itself? Garry’s Mod is on Steam.

My first night. I’m scared to sleep.
Also part of the bet was to do what married couples do. I’m going to hate and love this.
So here. Nothing happened hopefully.

I’ve seen enough John Joseco to know where this is going.

@Verbose
I do agree good sir. This blog is particularly spiffy

@Burning pheonix

I know it’s a good movie, but any movie keeping brad bird from making the incredibles 2: judgement day, iron giant vs megalon, or ratatouille: cook free or die hard is a steaming pile of poo-poo. Sorry Simon Pegg and Tom cruise, your movie was great but it ain’t got shit on his other works.
That pic of simon Pegg is unfortunate because it almost looks like a penis hanging through his pants. Mabye I just have a dirty mind lol jk :3 <3
