Commented on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Hey guys. It’s been a while since I’ve posted here at all. Been having problems viewing the site since installing the memory fox add-on to keep Firefox from nomming 2GB of ram. Currently posting this from my Android, but all of the tabbing around necessary for posting images and vids easily means I will probably not be doing much here for now until I figure out why I can’t view this all properly through Firefox. I would use Chrome, but am currently experiencing technical difficulties with the installer thinking Chrome is already there even when all signs point to its absence. Confound these computer problems, they drive me to mobile browsers…

THIS PARTYING STYLE HAS BEEN PASSED DOWN THE PIE LINE FOR GENERATIONS!

Come to think of it, I don’t really think that the thumbs really go with the culture if this page. It keeps things at the top of the page long after the conversation or event the post was part of has ceased to be relevant. I don’t really care much about the thumbs-up whores, the system itself just doesn’t seem to fit this place.

Am I the only one who thought that nobody had commented recently when he saw that one post just resting at the top of the comment section for hours? This new thumb feature will take some getting used to…

There’s a new Drawfriend collection up on Equestria Daily, but I am feeling too arbitrarily lazy to post the new pics from it at the moment. Maybe somepony else could.

Behold: the favorite ponies of Sethisto, Cereal Velocity, and Phoe!

Commented on What's a waifu?

Yeah, I had made the Mikuru connection as well, but mostly because some troper said that Pinkie Pie was Haruhi Suzamiya on the wild mass guess. It kinda fits. The world has big adventures, tons of fun, mysterious transfer students who happen to be Espers, weapons grade Moe, etc. It doesn’t contain alien robots or time travellers yet, though, unless you count Doctor Whoof for the alien and time traveller bits…
I love it when I go off on a tangent and end up in a crazier world.

I have been seeing a whole lot of reposts lately, most of them of pics that were buried fairly deep within the pic library we have here. I can only really think of one way to avoid these reposts happening, but I don’t really like the implications. Should one be required to have seen the entire 800+ pages of pics before being allowed to post “new” ones that they find around the net? That sets a pretty high bar for entry for posting pics of ponies, so I am not all that excited about the idea. It took me ages to do that even when we only had something like 600 pages, not that I didn’t love slogging through the backlog…
In the meantime, I guess people can continue to comment on said reposts and continue to get no response from the posters until we figure out how to sort out this mess.

Um…as much as I love TF2, could somebody please explain to me what this is doing in the MLP:FiM section?

3.) I don’t think that this fandom will really die out all that easily. We just keep doing things independently of the show as it stands. We have created new stories, new characters, and new art quite prolifically indeed. Many people thought that Weird Al’s popularity would die out after a couple of his parodies, like that of most other parodists, but his work has had a life of its own independent of the source material that he uses so he just kept on cranking out songs for decades. I think this fandom is kinda like that in a way: we aren’t just living in a world provided by the original authors, but we are also creating our own landscape. It would take more than just cancelling the show to stop us, the show would have to itself be ruined so far beyond repair that it taints the whole series so that nobody would touch it with a ten foot pole. That might be me being a bit uncharacteristically optimistic, though.

I had never been part of a fandom before, but this seemed pretty sweet. Still, as I am quite shy, I lurked for a while afterwards. I remember earlier thinking that I would never touch fanfics of any sort, but I found myself starting to read them (starting with a Doctor Hoof fanfic that was referenced on the TVTropes fanfic rec page, I think). Through the fanfic rec page I found my way to Equestria Daily and discovered what a delightful place it was. Soon after, I found myself filling a row in TooManyTabs with fanfics to read later, as well as scanning the Equestria Daily blog for updates to the ones that I was reading. Once somepony posted a trailer for Ace Combat 5 mashed up with ponies, I finally came out of my shell and posted about it on the site. I shortly afterward figured out the problem keeping me from making an account on KYM and started posting here, too. And that is how Equestria was made!
I still am not confident to try writing fanfics or drawing pics of my own just yet, but I think that will come in time.

2.) (continued) On viewing this comic, however, I decided that it couldn’t hurt to watch some to see what all of the fuss was about, so I sat down to watch an episode…or two…or ten. I ended up finishing the series a couple of days later and was sad that there weren’t any more episodes after “The Best Night Ever.” Somehow I found my way over to the KnowYourMeme site, probably while looking for TF2 related memes or through TVTropes somehow. I saw the huge backlog of photos and got to work looking through them. Some large amount of time later, I had seen every pony pic that had been uploaded to this page.

@Supermonday:
1.) I wasn’t really aware of how big the fandom was when I joined, but at the time I think this page was in the #2,3, or 4 slot and we had about 600pages of pics.
2.) It all started for me when I saw a webcomic (namely Massive Pwnage) endorse the show with one character telling another to watch the show and that is was about ponies and magic. Up to that point I had been decidedly meh about the whole thing and was a little annoyed at it popping up in the SteamPowered user forums on account of their being cute little ponies that bore the black name of their forebears. (To be continued in multipost)

Is it just me, or has there been a massive influx of awesome Luna art over the past few days?
@Mako: Really sorry to hear about that. Being an American, my concept of time zones only extends to our East and West Coasts.

@ThisDinner: Not quite sure if this is applicable, but welcome to the herd!
You have shown up just in time for Brony Appreciation Day on the 15th, by the way.

Hello, future wallpaper! Why does Luna make such a great subject for wallpapers?

@Mako: It seems you misunderstood me. Over here it is 1:30ish AM on July 15. July 15 is officially Brony Appreciation Day. You still have a full day of celebration ahead of you.
