Welp, it’s that time once again, folks. Time for another unpopular opinion from Voice!

I’ve noticed that this page has been getting flooded with trolls lately, which is weird. Troll activity kinda tapered off after 2012, but has experienced a resurgence for some unknown reason. That’s a whole ‘nother can of worms, though. My main point is that, if there’s anything that has stayed as constant as the content of these troll posts, it’s the responses to them. You’ve all been doing it wrong, but really, it’s not your fault. Why? Because there is no right way to respond to a troll.

You might think that you’re diminishing the trolls’ morale by blowing them off as imbeciles, but you’re really just playing right into their hand. Trolls don’t care what kind of attention they get; any attention is a nice, wholesome meal for them. Basically, what I’m trying to get at is that your responses to them, no matter how condescending, are not discouraging them from trolling this page; you’re just pouring gasoline right on the fire.

So what do you do? First, you say “NO!” you ignore them. Then, you get out of there! you notify a moderator. They’ll ban the offender, and peace will be restored to this page. And if you’re all really so bored to the point that you’re actually begging for trolls… I hear they’re doing wonderful things in porn these days. But seriously, get a hobby.

Voice of Survival, OUT.

Which is weird, because that would imply that this is the dungeon, but there’s definitely a troll down here. Ah, I love it when we get misguided fools like Vagrancy Expert who think they can end the pony fandom with a post or two…

First of all, I think you meant “meant” rather than “met”.

Also, for your question, I don’t think I have enough capability to answer it except “Well, it’s a good show” and one of the creators for this generation is Lauren Faust. So, here’s some references that you can watch for your pursuit of more detailed answers:

1) Watch the featured episode on this article and this video.

2) Watch this and this.

Keep in mind, a lot of shows go out with the intention of becoming popular and get run into the ground (here’s looking at you, Heroes). This being said, MLP wasn’t really meant to be popular, so much as bearable edutainment for kids and adults. But they hired damn good staff with a history of damn good shows, and suddenly, POPULARITY!.

I think in most cases, when the creators of a movie, show, game, etc, etc do it for the reason of becoming popular/famous. The material is often…questionable and mediocre. However when talented, ambitious people like the MLP staff create something without even the slightest thought of becoming famous, it’s praised.

That’s how I see it.

Once you go Brone you will occasionally groan
upon seeing a bone pointing at Ponies lying prone,

so don’t forget you might get wet
after hearing the fact that Ponies are not dead,

wipe off that foam, search for art made by Brone
and you might get blown (away) by all that Pone!

I think it’s strangely heartbreaking that, even though I’m not a big fan of bronies, the MLP fandom, at least over here, has been dead in the water for months now. I’d much rather have this topping the trending charts and the “Most Visited” galleries than GamerGate.

When is Season 5 even coming, anyway? I thought it was going to be in February or March, but with the death of The Hub, that could have changed…

Nah, we’re fine. GamerGate has a very active comment section so they will trend a lot but their image gallery lost a lot of steam in the last month while we still manage to be in the Top 10 most viewed galleries everyday even with the nerfs blocking our full potential.

Season 5 starts in Q2 2015 (April, May or June).

I wouldn’t say that we’re dead in the water, hell 60’s Spider-man is probably closer to dead and I love that meme. But as Baluh stated season 5 is gonna be coming in a few months and once that happens we’re gonna get a lot of new material to work with and we’ll probably get quite a large boom in traffic.

It’s important to say that the fandom is not nearly as big as it used to be in 2012. However, always, until some few months ago, the gallery was at the top of the image gallely by far almost everyday.

Season 5 should give some health to this fandom but not enough to bring it to the old “glory” days…

It’s hiatus. It’s to be expected. And as for the “glory” days, the show was new and people had no idea what bronies were. We’ve had time to really sink in by now. I may be wrong, but you’re probably just judging based on KYM alone, because /mlp/ and derpibooru have been as active as ever.

I’ve never been on 4chan and those things but from my personal experience, I do have been in more than a dozen websites that have forums and MLP threads. And I can say that in every one of them the activity is well below the old days.

But like I said, the new season will bring some health to the fandom.

Well, I bring sad news today.

FiM is being CANCELLED!!!!!111!!!11!!1

well on Netflix at least.

Yes, on February 2nd, MLP seasons 1-3 will be taken off of Netflix. Season 4 and the EG movies will be remaining though.

But what can YOU do?

If you are a Netflix subscriber, you can call their customer service number and request for the show to stay on! Do it nicely though!
