If you vote for me, I’ll do the opposite of what you might expect: I’ll actually do all I can to slow down ponies taking over the thread. I know many users don’t appreciate that, so I’m going to try and make sure this helps everyone.

Brand New Users are trolling and Commentators are worried about their Posts and their Karma. The wait to Thread Locks is ever increasing. Trolling levels through the roof.

The quality of Just For Fun under attack and every day the victims of this site must come to grips with the harsh reality that a large site, a sworn KYM enemy has become a memetic threat. Welcome to a place where one brony’s failed policies really hit home.

Welcome to Ponyville.

Hey, I thought slander wasn’t supposed to be part of anyone’s campaigns.

Anyways, if you vote for the Homestuck party, you’ll be satisfied with everything they do and it will be a happy place where you are free to post all the furries and lolis your little hearts desire.

Emphasis on the happy.

If you vote for Homestuck, you vote for sarcastic posts like we tend to do, and general apathy towards the inevitable inter-fandom conflicts that would be propagated by our opponents.
You’ll find apathy is good reaction, considering that the post of President has now powers.
We have thus demonstrated to you the most knowledge of the President’s role. What further proof do you require?

In addition, any persons experiencing “butthurt” from posts that were not explicitly offensive or stereotypical, such as the quoted post, shall be granted the most extraordinary of priviledges and the most brutal of punishments: We will tell them about Homestuck.
The good part is coming, I swear! Only 2000 pages in!

Our apologies, he doesn’t speak for the rest of the Party in that moment.

Also, we don’t support furries or lolis, so I think that’s a faulty assumption on your part. We don’t need to attack, and won’t do it, because we have MoThErFuCkInG mIrAcLeS.

I was being sarcastic in the vein of his post as well.

Fellow KYM members, do you not see the the rampant karma abuse spreading throughout KYM? If the Brony Party is elected, we will institute measures to prevent such violations of the very nature of KYM itself.

As a centrist party, we will not push our agendas like other parties will do. Instead, we shall listen to the voice of the people, and only then will true democracy be achieved. Under bronies, anyone can obtain high-ranking-sounding-but-otherwise-useless positions in the civilian government.

You know what rustles my jimmies? The fact that they went as far as naming an entire political party after the body part i love most, MAH JIMMIES. To stop the rustling of your jimmies, vote Lemon Party 2012. A vote for the jimmy party is a vote thrown away.

So your Jimmies are rustled you say? All the more reason why you need to support us.

You see you are getting yourself rustled over something you need not be ruslted over. That an example of the problem our parties sees and wishes to address.

We named ourselves after your jimmies to show how much we care about the health and wellbeing of your jimmies. It is nothing intended to be personal at all. Furthermore it does not indicate that we lay special claim to the word over everyone else, so there is no need to feel like your jimmies have been taken from you.

If you truly are passionate about the unrustling of Jimmies, then instead of mocking us and fragmenting from us, I think you should join us

For we are the most funded, researched and organised foundation on Jimmy reduction efforts. Not to mention the fact that our party is the most passionate and focused on our goal.

I demand my right to become rustled by whatever inspires that feeling in me, and to in turn seek to rustle those who would disturb my jimmies intentionally!
Where will this end? The Jimmies Party would take away a mans right to his jimmies. How can they prevent the rustling of jimmies? Only by two means: preventing you from feeling and hence nullifying your jimmies, or censoring all interaction and removing controversial materials.
This rustlers, ladies and gentlemen, are a greater threat to your jimmies then anyone else.
There should only be one person entitled to control your jimmies: you.
The Homestuck Party knows this. If you truly wish to be unrustled at the cost of turning your sacred jimmies to these autocrats, then you sir are rustled down to your very soul.

But what about the easily rustled? What about those who hate getting rustled, even though their jimmies are sensitive?
But on hard ground, we want to unrustle jimmies because they need to be that way.

“So you’re only gonna ‘unrustle jimmies’?”

Well then, how are we going to unrustle jimmies?
The changes will be just and generous. These changes will then unrustle jimmies.

Yes, you are in charge of your jimmies, but we want to reduce the rustling, as well as rustling the rustler himself the rustler cannot rustle jimmies no longer.

This is a prime example of the type of slander that gets thrown around by the desperate and malicious in political races.

This statement from MDF only goes to show how untrustworthy and unfit MDF is for leadership. As you can clearly see; his only method of ensuring his vote in this election is not to promote and defend the merits and benefits of his own ideals but rather to attack and downplay the merits and benifits that other parties have to offer. Can you really trust a party that goes to great effort to destroy their competition in this manner?

I’m going to venture a guess that MDF has taken this approach only because he is not confident that his policies will demonstrate a comparable benefit over mine, so he has to attack me directly.

Well MDF, you can say what you like about me. I am not interested in getting into debates over which one of us is the lesser evil. My only concern is the safety, productivity and efficiency of this forum and I remain focused on this goal. My worthiness for leadership is proven by my determination to resolve the problems we face and my merit, not by how bad everyone else is.

But to address your points anyway, I will say this:


  • No we do not plan to abolish rustling. That’s an impossible feat let alone an infringement on human rights
  • Yes we do plan to reduce rustling because as of present; Rustled jimmies in this forum is at an all time high, well beyond doctors recommended levels. Would you not agree that when the rustling…which you have every right towards, is reaching uncontrollable, harmful levels. Shouldn’t someone attempt to do something about this?
  • You have every right to start a fire and say “This is my fire, I have the right to start and extinguish it”. But when that fire ignites an entire city would you still say “this is still my fire and only I hold the right to extinguish it”…or would you expect your government to send fire services to bring it under control? Such it is with Jimmies as well.
  • No we do not seek to directly govern the individuals sense of Jimmy. Again this is an impossible feat. That’s like governing hate and love
  • Yes we do plan to govern the external sources that people get their jimmies rustled over. I’m talking about the rustling that you do not have control over as an individual such as trolling, bad news and spontaneous 504 errors. Our policies have no impact on the rustling that you do have control over such as your common sense reaction to trolls

If you have any more questions I will be happy to answer, thank you for your inquiry

Greetings netizens of KYM

Have you noticed how much the karma system seems to rustle Jimmies?

The Jimmy Party certainly has.

That’s why the Jimmy Party fully supports measures to reduce the potential to abuse the karma system and stir disgruntlement of flamewars among users, based upon previous discussion.

It is pretty evident that this forum takes negative karma seriously. Actually that’s an understatement: This forum will utterly flip its shit when people go around negging. This is unacceptable and we cannot have our jimmies rustled so easily by a simple negative number

If you want to see change to the terrible shitstorms that rock this forum over the click of a button; vote for the Jimmy Party. One our biggest and most important policies is revision towards the karma system and/or offering training courses for all KYM users on how to use and react to karma properly.

Thank you and may your Jimmies be safe.

Firstly, I must commend you on your condemnation of campaigns of slander. Slander against any individual is the most basic and uncultured response possible, and only displays a lack of creativity and intelligence in it’s originator.
I was slightly more disappointed when I discovered that not only had my criticisms of your party’s policies been misinterpreted as slander, but the response from those who have demonstrated they know better was to attack my comments and my person. If you must fight alleged slander with direct slander, you have shown yourself to be at the level you allegedly detest.
Merit should be, of course, the only factor in electing an official. As this post is powerless, the man who understands this the most and is prepared to perform with this in mind is best suited to be elected. However, what merit has been demonstrated?
The parties that have been running thus far have been dissapointing, to say the least. Promises of hats, ponies, cake, karma equality… these do not display the understanding of the post that we need.
The Jimmy Party’s interest in unrustling jimmies is commendable. However, what outside sources may rustle your jimmies? The only one that comes to mind is trolls- what action can be taken against trolls, other then starving them out?
As demonstrated with Warcraftnerd, any action will only affirm in the minds of these deranged individuals that they have succeed in making this site “mad”.
Only one party this far has the leadership to not lead. The courage not to fight. The ability to stand firm in the face of our problems and, by inaction, solve them.
Vote Homestuck Party if you haven’t already stopped reading because of TL;DR.
We are great fans of TL:DR.

And that’s precisely one of the reasons why everyone should vote for Brucker! My campaign has made no promises that cannot be kept, nor will it make any promises that can’t not be unkept whether elected or in the unlikely possibility of failure to be elected.

Vote Bob for presidency. Vote the IDGAF Party. We here at this party are all for fun and games. We believe the users should enjoy themselves without all this political hassle. Say nay to the conformists. Say nay to the tyrants. Say nay to giving a fuck.

We’d fight for your right to party without a care. We’d fight for your right to a great time. We’d do all this… if only we gave a fuck. In fact, I can hardly be forced to care to finish this campaign.

I realized people would abuse this system before it was cool.

If the brony party is elected, we will see an end to the abusable nature of karma, while simultaneously ensuring that it fulfills its intended purpose of rewarding good posts, while hiding the trolls and spammers, making KYM a better place.


Also, since the other brony candidates seem to have been unusually quiet, I, Twins the Comatose Vegetable, am announcing my official candidacy for the Brony Party 2012.

The brony party is only supposed to bring love and joy but clearly we’re going to have to meme quote: “Love the shit out of you.” even more. The irony is that this will probably be made invisible by the negative karma it will receive by the same people who karma bombed the first quote. But then whose point is proven then? Brony 2012.

You have to excuse me good sir, but it is currently you who gives bronies a bad name.

As long as we don’t bandwagon on the brony party (I really hope we don’t and I am busy with my own party) then having that option is just fine, it adds more diversity more or less to the election. Mostly this election is about the changes that we put forward for the forums, as long as Twins purposes changes that I agree with then I might vote for him.

Hey, you do not, I repeat in bold caps to emphasize my point, DO NOT use my threads as evidence of your own support of karma system abuse reduction.

I don’t see why not. I give full credit to you for that thread. I was merely using it as an example of the sort of viewpoints that I agree with. In this case it was yours. You should be flattered.

But I apologize if I made it sound as though I was taking credit for your work, that was not my intention at all. From now on I will not quote your threads without your due permission

My point is, is that I have recognized the abuse of the karma system thanks to threads such as yours and others. I quoted your thread so that people understand why I see an issue at present.

I hope that clears up any misunderstanding between us


Now as for you MDF

Firstly, I must commend you on your condemnation of campaigns of slander. Slander against any individual is the most basic and uncultured response possible, and only displays a lack of creativity and intelligence in it’s originator.

Thank you

I was slightly more disappointed when I discovered that not only had my criticisms of your party’s policies been misinterpreted as slander, but the response from those who have demonstrated they know better was to attack my comments and my person. If you must fight alleged slander with direct slander, you have shown yourself to be at the level you allegedly detest.

Are you suggesting your critique was anything but slander? Allow me to go through a laundry list of your unsubstantiated claims:

  • “I demand my right to become rustled by whatever inspires that feeling in me” (implying we would take this liberty away from you, we never implied we would)
  • “Where will this end? The Jimmies Party would take away a mans right to his jimmies.’ (We made no motion of this sort, ever)
  • How can they prevent the rustling of jimmies? (We never said we would prevent, only reduce)
  • “preventing you from feeling and hence nullifying your jimmies, or censoring all interaction and removing controversial materials.” (Alarmism)
  • This rustlers, ladies and gentlemen, are a greater threat to your jimmies then anyone else (borderline accusation without evidence and calling us ‘rustlers’, hence slander.)
  • There should only be one person entitled to control your jimmies: you. (implying we intend to control the individuals personal jimmies, we never made such a claim)

I’m sorry MDF but your claims were indeed slanderous and malicious. As such, I reserve the right to criticize you in return for your usage of slander. Hence my questioning of your leadership merits. Notice that I never laid any claim against the Homestuck Party as you have laid claim against the Jimmy party. I question only you and I stand by my belief that my questioning was reasonable and substantiated after you blatantly attempted to sully my honor with unproven gossip, I would not expect such behavior from a president I vote for

However, what merit has been demonstrated?

I shall allow my posts to speak for themselves

However, what outside sources may rustle your jimmies?

That’s a good question and trolls will be a difficult factor to deal with. When it comes to trolls, the question is not so much what we can do about them, but rather what we don’t. But I will get around to that subject later.

External factors are very diverse and are different from person to person but some of the most significant include:

  • Trolls, like you say
  • BNMs who attempt to create memes on the site
  • R34
  • Shipping (Real shipping, not shipping-thread related)
  • Negative karma
  • Especially negative karma
  • Religion topics
  • Political topics
  • Pony topics
  • Thread quality
  • Bad news, either international or local
  • Forum drama queens

The Jimmy party has identified these sources and more. We seek to find a reasonable methods of lessening their impact but hopefully not at at any cost to the public. For instance we don’t want jimmies to be rustled over shipping but we don’t want to lose shipping either. Some people like it. We would seek a way to make both ends meet for those who like and dislike shipping on subject

Any further questions?

Sir, I have stated that my post was my interpretation of Jimmy Party policy.
You may debate that these claims are true, but to question my motives and insult my person in the name of civilized debate is in direct opposition of your stated opinion.
And what of my question? You have stated you shall not do what I suggested. What, then, shall you do? Besides make claims that you shall reduce the rustling of jimmies. Can you not give any solid arguments against my obvious and offensive verbal bile?

Is this how you shall defend our jimmies?

And I corrected it. Simple.

But I like how you pulled the “u mad?” card in order to counteract my defense. As opposed to backing up your claims. Amusing

but to question my motives and insult my person in the name of civilized debate is in direct opposition of your stated opinion.

My stated opinion is that I do not want to argue over which party is the greater evil. I never questioned your party’s motive. I questioned yours. Why must you continue this onslaught against me? I wonder.

I also like how you are saying I insulted you when all I did was state simple observations. Are you going to continue throwing around red herrings?

And what of my question? You have stated you shall not do what I suggested

Which question and what statement?

Can you not give any solid arguments against my obvious and offensive verbal bile?

I need not give any solid arguments against your self acclaimed “verbal bile” if that is honestly all it is.

I think I’ve heard enough though. You’ve already told me everything about you that I need to know.

If I may interject your conversation of these supposed “jimmies?” By spamming the same shit over and over, you are effectively rustling the collective jimmies of the intelligent people that may be reading over this. And in addition to this, with the claim of wanting to reduce said rustling, is getting people mad a bad thing?

In the barren wastelands of these parts, trolling and upsetting is one of the few weapons we have left. To be kind is a good thing, but to be overtly kind will get nothing but a shove to the face into the ground. As it stands, the rules will only persecute those that do stupid, obvious shit like spam. But they won’t get rid of the faggots. The faggots will remain, and there is nothing rules can do about it.

Love and tolerance will get you nowhere. Gradually the pony fanbase gravitated towards a community of fucking around and posting silly image macros… Towards a cesspool of crossover fanart, roleplaying, and fanfiction. You know how well a website can change. If this persists, KYM will become the new 9gag within a year or less.

But you can change your fates.

You can rustle people’s jimmies.

You can troll the everlasting fuck out of stupid people whom you hate.

Jimmies party is nothing but a collection of imbeciles, wishing to bring this website down, and you should all vote for me because all the other parties are just as bad.

I’d just like to say that this whole feud between MDF and BSoD has very much been rustling my jimmies. If BSoD’s party is running on a platform of un-rustling jimmies, I’d say that they are failing based on this candidate’s rhetoric solely.

The Homestuck Party warns that it may rustle jimmies during this campaign, but know that we will only do so if it is necessary.

I can’t imagine why this post was downvoted. I’m assuming there’s nobody here who’s against toilet paper, so the only other thing of substance is your opinion on negative kramas. If the people who disliked your claim that negkramas are useful negkrama’d you to show you their disagreement, isn’t that rather ironic?

Hmmm. I just can’t figure it out.

Maybe they thought toilet paper was your favorite food?

It’s because we’re sick of pointless parties popping out of nowhere that don’t even a suitable and/or comprehend able goal.

This rustles jimmies. At the Jimmy Party, we’re working on a way to reduce rustling, resulting in healthier jimmies.

In the earlier popular language of Rage, bros will get mad less. Troll = Rustler.

He said that this would be up for a week, so he probably doesn’t feel the need to intervene.

Alternatively, I think most of us forget the user who’s running this elec

I’m not going to bother campaigning until later in the election. I’ve been busy, and my debate game isn’t up to par right now. However…

Well, you know what I’m sick of? All this talk about rustling of jimmies! We get it already! Freakin’ jimmies are the pony fad of 2012! I can’t stand it! You’ve driven me to this.

I am leaving the Brony Party, and forming a NEW PARTY: The Irony Party, in which we do not promise, but rather solemnly VOW that we will…

Oh, and my favorite food is still squid.

Well, I assumed no one would actually be stupid enough to actually make a bunch of accounts to abuse karma like that.

Guess I miscalculated the no-lifeness of some trolls here.

Anyways, my point stands.

If elected, the Brony Party will establish a vigilante karma patrol unit. We shall right all baseless, unsubstatiated negs, find those involved, and teach them a lesson.

Due to the mass amounts of dei coetanei pressure. There we shall go:

Don’t you hate tripping balls out of sudden?

Don’t you hate those Entoptic fenomeni?

Don’t you miss The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr?

Are you tired of fighting against those backyard dragons with only spadas di cartone?

Do you like to watch The Drew Carey Show?

Then I’m not your man, you sick people. And yes, I love nachos with senape.
