WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE!? Please post on my wall and introduce yourself. If I don’t really know you or talk to you, I will not friend you. If you are still just embarrassingly sitting in my follow list then it is because I have no idea who you are and I find it awkward. If you seek to change that then socialize!
The error of terror…The fatal exception of deception…
No spambot survives
Some guy who codes websites and drinks excessively
TF2, Starcraft 2 and Borderlands 2. Find me on Steam, same name there as here. But 90’s gaming will always live on in my heart
Ponies and Homestuck. If you hate those, too bad. But I’m cool with other fandoms too.
Also Carl Sagan is best pony
DnB, Trance, Dubstep and a bit of House. Favorites include BSE, SoM, Pendulum, The Upbeats, Shapeshifter and Seba.
Metal is fine too. Don’t mind Rammstien, Disturbed or System of a Down.
I am a bass addict. No bass, not interested
Sometimes I draw shit. I’m terrible at it.
But hey, at least my pony OC was not drawn with some pony creator program"
I’m a trained PHP web developer. I’m all about the code.
I started the famous trend of themed profiles when I discovered a way to inject my own CSS and Jquery into my profile….but then people abused that and now you can’t do it anymore. Dumbasses
I browse KYM because its a fast way to follow what’s happening in internet culture. Net culture fascinates me and how differently it works compared to every other culture in the world despite being part of every other culture in the world. Plus I like the discussions we have here
I like sci-fi. But not the “UFO blows up New York” crap, I mean real sci-fi such as Star Trek, Stargate, Aliens, Predator…you know all that stuff from before Hollywood ran out of ideas. Then again the internet is pretty much my TV nowadays. The following summarizes my modern TV experience:
Obligatory profile music
Carl Sagan > Lady Gaga > Katy Perry > Miley Cyrus
Once you have editorship you have authority to change what you like at any time. If you aren’t sure, just ask the mods for help
Ask any of the senior moderators. Such as Randomman, opspe, Amanda.B, etc. Send them a PM or post on their wall that you want editorship
I’m pretty sure that plush guy believes he IS that pillow in the photo. He’s messed up
Complaining that the winner wasn’t “American”? Did the Soldier from TF2 make 705 Twitter accounts or something?
That doesn’t even make any sense. I’m pretty sure Davuluri is a US citizen and her family had been in the US for years. If Citizenship isn’t good enough, then none of the previous Miss America’s are legit because none of them were Native Americans
And calling her Al-Qaeda? What the actual fuck? How do you connect being Indian to Al-Qaeda!?
I want to believe these people are trolling, but I know some people who are actually like that
All the more reason.
Porn is no stranger to me either. Tying it with gore makes it instantly un-sexy but not really a shocker. Marilyn Manson had gore porn in his music video’s (Heart Shaped Glasses anyone?)
Then again, I get squeamish hearing people talk about erotic dismemberment/cannibalism.
If you want to upset me, try scat. I fucking hate scat. I also cannot stand cringe/sperghetti
Better to have a well written shitty meme than a badly written shitty meme. Thank you. I love the tags you added.
“Chickun” has been around for more than a year now on /b/ and /mlp/ so we should just be talking about “Chickun”. Pretty sure that’s a far bigger meme than the “arise” thing. I’ve only seen the Chickun face by itself get anywhere outside of /b/
It hasn’t been documented yet because it’s really a derivative of the same old “Scootaloo is a chicken” joke that’s existed since the MLP fandom started and I think everyone considered that to be more of a Brony in-joke than a real meme
It might be worth noting that chicken thing has made a transition into “Chickun” and started spreading out of /b/, but I’d say that belongs here, where all the other Brony-specific memes including Scootachicken are already covered and written by someone who knows how to properly write an entry. After that we can just throw this one in the trash
Wouldn’t have worked if you did. I did years in the meatworks and I’ve played Brutal Doom. Gore doesn’t upset me.
See what? Tell me. I have no idea what’s going on
She’s going to have a terrible back-ache when she wakes up
You think that will rustle my jimmies? Do your worst.
Here you go, have a new wall post. xoxox
It means no fapping – for the rest of your days!
I thought she was spewing the word “Men” at first. I was extremely confused
All fair and good, it’s settled.
See, I’m not exactly advocating anything different from what is already done or would be done. I simply thought that one thing could have been done a bit differently. Going back to what I said above and in regards to the incident in question, I was certain that much of the drama could have been avoided and Daniel could have been saved much of his embarrassment if he was approached more privately. Doing so wouldn’t have made the message you or verbs gave him any less effective and everyone else had already said their part.
However, in the long run, this is really not that big of a deal since the thread thankfully maintained its course and Vaz was really the only one to take any damage. Theres no point in me going on about that incident anymore as my initial fears were averted
I’m the last person who would want to make a mountain out of a molehill over this, so I’d rather put that behind me and remain better prepared for what comes next
Well I’d let time tell before before saying the exact problem is unsolved. Both you and Verbs certainly put a lot of effort into doing something. With the thread continuing its normal course afterwards, maybe something succeeded…maybe. We will see.
Now when the next shitstorm comes along, and it certainly will, here’s my way of looking at it: If it’s something that can be addressed and resolved by conferring with everyone on the thread and getting them all to agree on something, that’s an option. If it’s something that can be resolved by quietly addressing one problematic user, thats another option. Simple as that.
I never said either option was a good or bad idea. It’s just a matter of tact and context. Of course users can add valuable points. It’s not wrong to get them involved so long as hysterics won’t lead to matters being unnecessarily prolonged. It can also be wise to make things more discrete as well in order to spare the mood. There’s pros and cons to these things and we have to consider which path to take based on the given circumstance
You are right that I didn’t think the problem was solved or required no further discussion. I simply hated it being there where it very nearly exasperated and continued the butthurt and karma bombing for yet another page.
By all means discuss the issue, but remember that doing so publicly on that thread focuses the entire topic on that matter and gets people more concerned than they need to be. From my perspective it was more of a derail than an intervention
Talking down Vaz for his behaviour was something I felt was necessary to discourage him from repeating these incidents, but it would have been better suited if it was handled between him and mods privately. That is all.
For the record. I didn’t disagree with any of the moderator actions taken in the PG thread. If you check my posts, you will notice that I never questioned why you had to censor Vaz or anything you or Verbs had to say to him.
Of course I respect the fact that people got grossed out by something even if it had no effect on me. Yes I think it’s a silly thing to get upset over but I never said it shouldn’t have been censored or that those who were offended should not have been.
If you check my first response to the matter, I was the one explaining to Vaz why he got what was coming for him and that he should simply get over it (which he complied with until it was brought back up again)
I simply wanted the discussion moved out of the PG thread. That’s all. Platus and Algernon supported that decision. If theres going to be a debate on the matter regarding Vaz, personally; I believe it could have been done anywhere but there
Fortunately the threads moved on now and that’s all I wanted

I don’t think you become a furry just by liking furry art
I like furry art also, but I don’t draw it or talk about it. I’m not actively involved in the fandom at all so I won’t call myself one
You are cordially invited to contribute to the image gallery yourself so it’s not just those two adding images.
They aren’t trolls trying to bring out stereotypes. They just like that corner of the fandom. The real problem is that nobody else but them is stepping up to the plate. We want to see some images that represent the fandom fairly but it’s up to you guys to provide us that.
