Hmm… Coming back to six negkarma? Am suspicious. I don’t know that my newfag opinion will be of any value, especially considering I don’t have one since I’ve known you lot for all of five or six days. I don’t often foray into the depths of the tubes. So let’s not freak out over a little karma bombing, even though I know the people responsible are reading my humble thoughts and that 15% of my karma is now neg. And in conclusion, @Cite: I think you should stay.

Also, I’m going to miss tomorrow’s episodes. Gah. Stop reminding me. Actually, do keep reminding me, if it’ll keep you all off the negkarma thing.

Get first post in formal attire.

Also, this is a personal appeal for a good, pony-related page 89 get.

Only Fools Actually Care About Karma.

Sorry, that’s just my opinion.

Let us all now agree that from now on, starting with this page, we will make sure this never happens again.

Yes, this is incredibly corny. But it must be done.

Edit: God dammit Fridge, you ninja’d my page get for a better future!

Now, let’s give this thread a little love.

Boy, I’ll tell ya, when Madmax ships, she ships, because this is the second time she’s done it with Pinkie, and it’s really good.

She snuck a sip from the punch at diamond tiaras Party and she didn’t even use a cup. Also, she seemed way too scared of applebloom and seemed out of it I guess( mabye that one is just me). When the cows were heading towards ponyville in a stampede, she pulled “berry pinch” inside her house. anyways, ever since then, she has been known as the town drunk who can’t take care of her daughter for shit.

But the creators said that Pinchy is just her sister. In that one episode when sweetie bell wanted a new sister her and Pinchy won and it was this sisters event.

I feel like I kind of had a bad week too guys, and I am trying to or some what by trying to post pictures that will amuse you, or me not posting at all at times.
SNUGGLE TIME!!



Now let there be peace..
But I am being serious when I say this, it is natural for us humans to get into conflicts like this, were only humans in reality and all. Heck, even the ponies some times get in fights with each others as well, things like this only makes us stronger and more impervious to make another shit storm. Like tearing muscle tissue, it will heal and produce more cells to replace the cells that was lost, which will make it much stronger then before.
I am not saying to start making shit storms 24/7 I am just saying that shitstorms will happen less often after this, also people will finally realize what they are doing to cause such a thing and stop it. I am saying to try to prevent shitstorms as best as we can, and if we manage to get one some how…oh well, we can look back of what caused it and try our best to think up ways to make sure it won’t happen again.

Well, to be honest, if you weren’t here, you were kinda lucky. But we have sorted out the situation.
Basically, there was another Derpy arguement. JJ was upset, and some of us (such as me and Citation) stood up for his position, but a shitstorm ensued. It was terrible, and Karma-negging was EVERYWHERE, and jimmies may or may not have been rustled.
However, after some fierce debate, we finally cooled down, and are trying to avoid future shitstorms, especially after seeing Citation leave the way he did. Now we are pretty much cooled down, and are moving forward with finding new topics so we may not go into debate of such magnitude again.

Last thing for the night.
If someone could please direct me or help me solve these issues with the time gaps, then I’ll be very greatful. I’m planning to make the story as epic and not plot-hole filled, with as many unintentional unanswered questions as possible. To do that, I need a good age and time-frame for the story. After help, I can work it out, and writing should resume as normal.

Theres a lesson here everyone needs to learn about that last shitstorm (Yes I’m sorry for still talking about it but it must be said)

Me an opspe agreed that it was the worst shitstorm we ever had. Even through it was short and fast, it burned hotter than any previous shitstorm before.

We came to an agreement that while Dac ignited the storm with his terrible joke towards JJ, the thing that really fanned the flames was the negakarma. If it was not for the negs. That probably would not have happened.

You all need to learn that Negs get taken too seriously here so watch what you neg! It does hurt your fellow forum member! I’m going to lay down some rules for all of you:

  • DO NOT neg opinions you don’t agree with
  • DO neg obvious trolls, but ONLY when obvious
  • DO neg obvious spam posts, but ONLY when obvious
  • BUT ALSO DO forgive people who did not intend spam so don’t neg them
  • DO NOT neg in-obvious trolls. Unless you are absolutely certain its a troll like a warcraftnerd, then and only then do you neg.
  • DO NOT NEG NEW USERS JUST FOR BEING NEW!
  • DO NOT neg posts because everyone else is doing it, use your own judgement!

There. Follow these guidelines and maybe we will have less shitstorms, just maybe. I know that if we have karma trolls, they won’t listen to this, but if you guys do then maybe that will at least prevent such trolling from getting worse.

It’s sad that we need to regulate our own usage of karma in this way but that’s the unfortunate reality of the situation: people just can’t handle being negged


@Cite

One more thing I want to say to you Bro

Another lesson we need to learn is that despite how much we try to love and tolerate, they fact of the matter is that we are still human and that shitstorm was proof of that.

We can try to love and tolerate, we really do try but to be honest that is a near impossible feat. Human nature will always get the better of us. I hope you can forgive those who negged you (the ones that weren’t just trolling) for hating on you like that, they were only human and they make mistakes. Even when they are friends, they still do that. But the good news is that friends apologize and you received several apologies already.

At the very least I hope you can forgive Dac, he is truly sorry and he just doesn’t know what went wrong.

Just for the record, when I saw you stand up for JJ I upvoted you.

Sure JJ made me facepalm but I was just glad he chose to discontinue arguments, I never downvoted him. So I wasn’t too happy when I saw everyone neg him for that and thus keep the storm a’blowing. I’m glad you chose to defend him.

I’ve been looking at the posts on the previous few pages, and though some of us may have negged others during that shitstorm, most of it was most definately the work of karma bombers. For example, on the previous page, me and Verbs had posts that got 7 karma each. Now, for no reason, they both only have 4. I’m not trying to sound like I care much about the karma system, but I am pretty dang sure some people are messing with us.

Also, some of Cite’s posts have been negged on his livestream thread. I really think a group of people has it out for us. This would explain all the negging.

Once again, I’m not saying I care about my karma count, but if you’ve been negged, there is a good chance it was from someone outside the thread. So don’t take it seriously.

@BSOD
Yeah, I guess that joke was in poor taste. I didn’t think it would have been taken so seriously though. I thought ( niavely) that it would just be like any other joke you hear on television or on the Internet. I understand that jokes like that aren’t appreciated here and I will respect that.
Edit: I apologized for what I did already. Let me just ask that after BSOD, no one bring it up anymore. Especially not to remained me I was at fault. I got it. So please let it go.

Well, you did it, thread. You finally broke me.
Yesterday, after that fiasco, do you want to know what I did? I cried. I honestly did. Do you know why? I had considered all of you to be my friends. And I thought we were all above ganging up on a user (in this case, Jolly Jew). So whenever I try to stand up for him, I’m downvoted and attacked for it? Why? Because I have a different opinion than you? That doesn’t make any sense, and you all know it.
So when something like that happens, and the only people who bother to help me are Bob and Algie, try to think of how that felt for me. Hint: it wasn’t fun.
Things like that are exactly why I am. As in, exactly why I’m such an asshole. I like to try and help people who need it, and when I do, aboosh, things like this happen. Frankly, I considered most of you to better than that, but I guess I was mistaken.
And then there’s the thing with Unknown. He’s dropped the Derpy thing, and you people are still downvoting him and ignoring him? What the Hell? Can we not get past mistakes someone might have made? Is that so hard?
And Dac, like Bob said (and without saying something too hurtful), you’re in no position to call anyone elitist.
Either way, I’m probably going to take a break from the thread as a whole for awhile. At least a couple weeks, maybe a month, I dunno.
Please note that none of the above was meant to be taken as an angry post. That was me thoughtfully and politely trying to point out what happened and why I think it’s unfair. Take it as you will, and I’m expecting downvotes.
Thank you.

It’s not us regular users. We promise. We’re not that butthurt and stupid. Like others have said, there aren’t even enough regular posters to warrant -12 on everything. The trolls are specifically going after the same people over and over again, rather than just karma bombing every post, so to look more legit.

We all do love you, Cite. While you do get provoked a bit too easily (not like there’s anything too wrong with that), overall, you’re one of the coolest posters here. You’re like, the Rainbow Dash of this thread (and what a suitable favourite pony). It won’t be the same without you for a month.

The anti-brony trolls are trying to rip this thread apart. Don’t let them get to you.


As for the culprit, call me suspicious, but keep a very close eye on Thomas Nair. As of this post, he has given out 1064 negative karma, with a total of -661, and I don’t recall it being that high before.

Keep a watchful eye over anyone who has an abnormally high amount of negative karma given out. Especially from Brand New Members.


@BSOD:
Hey, don’t pin all the blame on dac. While he might have accidentally set off something huge, it really only got this big because SOME INVISIBLE PONY HATERS decided to attempt to ruin our little community here by karma bombing.

Your guidelines are great, but one thing: everyone already (mostly) follows those rules.


TO YOU KARMA BOMBING TROLLS OUT THERE:
PLEASE GET THE HELL OUT OF OUR THREAD BEFORE WE ARE FORCED TO DO SOMETHING DRASTIC LIKE POST MORE PONIES. YOUR ATTEMPT HAS FAILED ALL YOUR KARMAS ARE BELONG TO US PONIES>EVERYTHING AAAAAAAAAAAAUGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH


Now that that’s over, I would like to point your attention to the fact that

I can’t believe I won’t be able to watch it live :(.

Hey, don’t pin all the blame on dac

Whoa, hold on just a second here. I didn’t mean to point the finger at Dac directly. If that’s how I came off, then I apologize. You are right that Dac isn’t at fault for the whole thing.

What I was saying is that he created a spark with that offhand comment but what really fueled the flames was the negakarma, as I pointed out in my post.

Dac responded to JJ, Cite responded to Dac and that’s where it would have ended.

But then someone negged Cite and Cite reacted to that. That’s the point where the shitstorm began. As I said before, if it wasn’t for the the negakarma then that wouldn’t have happened

Trust me, me and opspe discussed this and we don’t hold Dac responsible. Now out of respect to Dac we should probably drop the subject since he doesn’t want us to bring this up anymore

Well, I’m out for a while. My dad is making me first do yard work, and then we’re all going to see The Hunger Games as a family. Unfortunately the first showing is at 11, and the movie is 142 minutes long, so I will not be able to catch the new episode and will not be returning until I see it for the sake of spoilers.

Hope you all enjoy it though!
