KYM Pony General VI: Return of the Poni

Page get. Y’all should read Iamslow’s last post, is good.

@Iamslow: While I admire Hot Topic for their acceptance of bronies, and I have already bought two items from them (and will probably be back Friday to get a Derpy to complement my Dashie), it’s not a store I enjoy going into. I guess it’s how they still give off that creepy kid in high school vibe, with all of the emo/punk body jewelery and clothing. It’s just trashy, in my opinion. If they weren’t so weird, I would probably frequent them more for brony items, but as it is, I already ask for no bag because I’d rather carry a fully visible pony figurine halfway across campus from the parking lot to my dorm than to carry a Hot Topic bag obscuring it (then again, I’m a relatively open brony).


@Short Season 3: I guess it makes sense. Kids always like the reruns, and I can think of a bunch of shows I like even now that have shorter seasons. However, if there’s one thing that I wish they would get from having us, it would be that, being older and preferring novelty, we would rather have full seasons. After what I said above, I’d give up a Derpy speaking part with original voice for that.

Remember the film Misery? Well my save Derpy plan would be just like that. Also, someone give the Mane 6 their bayonets.

Something like this?

As soon as I heard “horses and bayonets” on the radio this morning… I knew there was going to immediately be a pony version.

Why so many Pinkie Pies?
AHEM

Gentlemen, we now have a synopsis of episode 3 of season 3:

As the thread’s resident clop-basher I would like to raise several points about that:

  • There was another static done by the Paheal guys of how much sperm was wasted over which character, Rainbow Dash ranked highest, so really this is no news.
  • Clop from what I heard started some sort of shitstorm in Paheal, since the sites first goal is to provide examples not catalog all of them, but the explosion of
    Bronies (and therefor horsefuckers) made them upload every single clop image, even dupes several times, at first this started a shitstorm and a long debate, but in the end the Paheal staff just rolled with it, it’s kinda like _the KYM gallery, a lot of older Menes and fandom’s have far less images in their gallery than MLP, simply because MLP is the most cared for gallery on MLP, it’s the same case on Paheal.
  • Paheal will delete most comic book dumps, Touhou and Naruto get dozens of erotic Doujons weekly (go to E-hentai or Fakku and confirm it yourself) Comickets are pretty much BASED around new erotic Touhou Doujins (go to SankakuComplex and check the Comickets’ previews), and as far as I know there are no more than 10 erotic MLP Doujins, one western and the other are Japanese.
  • As you can see in that picture:Touhou, Pokemon, Street Fighter, Sonic, Naruto and Digimon are all Japanese series’ on Paheal, which is a western site. Go to Gelbooru or Danbooru or Fakku (or Pixiv) or any other Japanese-art site and you’d sees tons more porn of them than there is on Paheal.
  • Last and not least, to RandomMan:

So, how much did I miss?


Hello, KYM Pony General.

Guess who’s marching season is just about over and has gotten his life back together?

I’m back, for the most part. I hope that there’s something I can contribute to here…not going to scroll past all these pages though, sorry.

So, onward with the conservatism!


Also, I’ve adjusted the personal rules a bit. I’ll get some sort of official shizz later.

Mostly, it’s simply an overall tolerance (and interest in) heterosexual shipping. I’m also less offended by saucy pony pics, or even borderline ‘34 rarely, even what can actually be considered ’34 but I’m selective. Still retain everything else, though (not a fan of lesbian/bisexual ships and all that)

I still retain

Don’t bother looking for the post on the site, it’s in a forum that can be seen only by staff, beta testers, and select members (I’m one of those members).

Speaking of Fluttershy, there’s this girl at school that reminds me of her. Her name’s Courtney, and she’s been in a few of my classes in 9th and 10th grade (in 11th now). She resembles Fluttershy in appearance: eyes, nose, chin, hair parted away from her forehead. She also seems to share personality traits with Fluttershy: quietness and shyness. She hardly talked at all (quiet), and she was barely audible during her turn of the debate we had in History last year (shy).
Now for the irrelevant information: I’ve seen her have almost every single hair color: it started out dark blond-ish (with a hint of pink, I believe), then changed to brown, and later black. I have no idea what her hair’s natural color is.

In other news, you may have read this, but Adweek got swamped by write-ins from EQD.

So they made a best pony poll, and wouldn’t you know it, Best Pony came out on top of the listed poni!

I have a request. The World Series begins tonight. I would like someone to draw a ponified version of two baseball players. One pony wears a Detroit Tigers jersey, the other pony wears a San Francisco Giants jersey. They both have bats, and they are looking at each other. The 2012 World Series logo should be in the center.

Ah, my edit got ninja’d. Should’ve waited and made a new post, I guess. Well, look at my last one then.

@Chowburgerz, I’d draw a rough one for you to be vectored, but I don’t really have enough time before work. YO, TWINS, YOU HERE?

Ha! The poll is not over yet. I have voted for best pony a couple of times and well it left the dolorous last place.

The article is tagged with “fanatics”. It is the only adweek article with that tag – is that a good or bad sign.

Wow some flutterfans have taken over in the meantime…

Oct 24, 2012 at 03:15PM EDT

I nearly laughed out loud when I say that article! I kinda figured something like that might happen… the “other” category was dominating all others in their polls!

At the time of writing this, Twilight is best pony, with Fluttershy in a close second. These numbers seem to fluctuate a lot!

Well, it seems that as a unified force, Bronies are unstoppable!

Oct 24, 2012 at 04:00PM EDT

Wow, Twilight is on top now? At first, they didn’t even have a Twilight category, apparently, hence the large amount of “other”. Still, I’m OK with that. Twi has been approaching a tie with Dashie lately for me. It’s close, and fluctuates day to day, but she’s up there.

The main My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic received a major rewrite, including a merge with the (now deadpooled) bronies entry. Important stuff added, other stuff removed, reorganised and rewritten several sections that were already there, etc.

Please check it out and give feedback. If you notice any small stuff like grammar or broken html, please use the suggestion feature on the entry.

I’ll try and add a table of contents on top of the page later this week, should make browsing through it a lot easier.

I’ll just ask for now to not abuse it or joke around with the feature. Neither is it an excuse to suddenly start uploading explicit content or more questionable. The feature was added for a reason.

Looks good. I’m going through the footnotes right now to find any discrepancies. This will be updated over the next half-hour.

  • Footnotes 5-7 are no longer in the article, but are in the footnotes
  • Footnotes are out of order in the article (just bothers me)
  • Since ponibooru is dead, is a footnote and link necessary? (19)
  • There is no #31
  • 37, ponyarchive, says it redirects. It does not. It goes to a for-sale domain. Also address in the article
  • There are no footnotes 40-45
  • 57 does not appear to be in the article
  • The subject of 58 is not on the left, as promised
  • The subject of 61, personally, does not have a worried stance. Possibly move to the first section of media coverage.
  • 75 could be linked to Welovefine’s MLP page, instead of a search, which pulls up a lot of unrelated stuff (AvX, Hunger Games, Transformers to name a few)

And done. The rest looks good, just out of order. Almost half an hour exactly. That was close.

  • Fixed.
  • Too much work to fix with too much of a risk to fuck up along the way, not really an issue as well. Not to forget that when links get added/removed, you have to go through everything again.
  • Evidence of deadness, just in case.
  • Fixed.
  • “Was”, as in the past. Changed the sentence so it fits now. Footnote and URL bring you directly to Itunes now.
  • Fixed.
  • Fixed.
  • With “Left” I mean the vids below the paragraph, in which RocketBoom is the left vid. Fixed anyway by changing it to “shown below, left”.
  • Changed sentence, thus fixed.
  • Changed and Fixed.

@Deadparrot (send a suggestion)

  • Typo fixed.
  • I’m keeping it as Pinkielicious. Rarity Rhyme does not match the style of Twilightlicious (which I was aiming for in that paragraph), plus the reason I went with Pinkielicious instead of another pony was due to its inclusion of the word “bronies”. Not to forget you were (partly) incorrect on Tabitha, she’s a Gen 3 creator, but in Gen 4 she’s just a voice actor.

Thanks for the help the both of you!

@RandomMan
I pride myself on being able to keep footnotes in order. I can guarantee if you give me the text, I could rearrange them all into the proper order. I don’t even need an editorship, if you just mail me the current code and just copy-paste what I send back. Personally, I feel it will be more professional if it’s fixed. I am more than willing to correct it if it is so desired.

I feel like I missed something here. What prompted this reaction out of Adweek? (And I should add that their reaction was hilarious) What was EqD doing, sending them write-ins?

As for that poll, it looks like it shifted dramatically since you guys last checked. Twilight is in the lead by good margin with Rarity very close behind in second place. Looks like Rarity is finally getting more appreciation in the fandom.

I saw Derpy falling behind so I voted for her. We can’t let the fandoms own creation go unnoticed


@MLP article edits

Well I tried my best to defend the Brony article 3 months ago but it looks like we’ve caved in to the demands of the masses (or the top comments). Damn, I really thought there was a good reason to give notable fandoms their own article. The Furries have one so why can’t we? Nevermind…

Anyway, the main article is looking good. I don’t see any other errors. Although I have suggested adding Ponyconfessions as a related link because people continue to dump confessions in the image gallery and I don’t believe that is necessary when we can just direct people to look at the ponyconfessions tumblr whenever it updates.

To indicate the spread of MLP across tumblr we only need to take note of the tumblrs that are created, not post every single image they create

[edit]

In retrospect, that won’t stop the confession dumps

@BSoD: Here’s the article that originated the write-in campaign. You really need to read it to understand.

Note that it was put up 25 hours ago or so (based on my timing from my timezone to the most recent article, which had to have been posted in the last half hour, as I was there barely 30 minutes ago for my daily check). The article about the best pony poll on EQD went up EIGHTEEN HOURS LATER. That’s how huge it was.


Related to new EQD article: Funko says we have two new vinyls on the way. Oooh booy….

Assuming that every “other” in those polls translate to “MLP/The Hub” then Holy crap!

I’m laughing at every one of those poll results, just imagining what the reviewers of those polls are thinking with pone in every single category. Well done, fandom we’ve done it again!

I just thought I might share two brony irl encounters I had. These were the first bronies I’ve seen in real life, so it was kind of neat I guess. Anyways, I didn’t actually go up to them because 1) I don’t feel like striking up a conversation because I happen to like the same show 2) the guy was at a rave and it was packed so I couldn’t go up to him even if I wanted to, and the girl was at a bookstore and she wasn’t… My type I guess you could say.

Anyways, so Aviccii is playing and I see this guy fist pumping and he’s got the mane six dolls on his kandi. It was easily in the top 5 best kandis I saw that night ( this girls pikachu face and my friends pacman ghost ones where way better though) he had on gen 3 doll though next to rarity though. I also want to say I saw someone with a dj pon3 shirt and some dude had the same power ranger tee fury shirt as me! Crazy since they only have each design for sale for one day. But yeah, I saw a couple pony things that day.
At the bookstore the other day, I saw some girl with a doctor hooves shirt. I guess she saw me looking at it, because then she came up to me and asked me if I liked her shirt and if I was a brony. I lied and said that I just remember seeing something online about it but knew nothing else. Spagetti then erupted from my pockets as I just walked away without saying anything else.

@Calpain
The prophecy has been fulfilled.

However men, before we become too mired in thoughts of eternal vengeance against The Great Judas, perhaps we should take time to reflect on what may have led to such an outcome.
My belief?
KYM doesn’t have a pony!
Why doesn’t KYM have a pony mascot?!
How has no one made one yet?!
How can such a hub of pony activity lack the very thing it claims to focus on?!
This is the single largest travesty of logic and justice the universe has ever known!
KYM needs its own pony mascot!
Get on that, art-people!
(Seriously, that would be really cool if someone came up with a design. I guess it’s a little harder for this site since it doesn’t really have a good logo that would translate to a cutie mark, but I’m sure we can come up with something. Or we can just sidestep the issue and put them in an eternal lab coat or something.)
