Why Hasbro, why…
Oh damn, why does everything feel like it’s falling to pieces. So much potential being crushed, so many dreams being destroyed. It’s enough to make me feel rather ill.

The shutdown of MLP Online: In the past, Hasbro has taken down episode postings and the like, but they hadn’t been touching creative works. This was basically the first time, forced or not, that they shut down a fan creation. I often thought of FIM as a show that created 10,000 artists (probably an underestimate). We had a good thing going here, articles were even written about Hasbro’s approach. This is one incident, but it sets a precedent that wasn’t really there before. Every artist or fan site will have this on their mind. I am hoping this will have been an isolated incident, but, even if it is, it may have some unseen consequences. There may be several ambitious fan works that may now never see the light of day because creators will be scared off.

The Gameloft game: I was actually somewhat excited for this. I had never played farmville or anything like that before so I had an open mind. After all, I gave the show a chance, so why not this? But then I actually played it, and I learned that what people had feared was true. This really did turn out to be a “game” made for the sole purpose of using manipulative psychology to get you to spend money. I mean, the most enjoyment I had was doing things I didn’t have to have “permission” to do, like poking trees and random objects, which says something. I played plenty of enjoyable video games in my youth, and this “game” made me die a bit inside. Games are meant to be fun and challenging, and sometimes they even teach us something about ourselves.

Well, since this image post is bugging me. I will provide some final thoughts.

First, to those that disliked this somewhat negative and serious post, don’t worry, this was a one-time thing, and, after this response, I doubt I would post anything like it here again.

Secondly, thank you again Arrakiz.

Finally, for those interested, I shall try to clarify why I thought the first two of these incidents nearly unforgivable and the last rather tragic.

The Derpy incident: Frankly, I find those that find Derpy offensive to be the ones that are offensive. The only reason they hate her is because she is different. As for the current situation, yes, she has had a toy and has been in comics, but when it comes to the show, which is where things really matter, she is practically absent in Season 3.

@Jolly Jew
I can assure you that, without at least some hope, we might still be living in caves. People have to see the potential in the world before they can change it for the better.

@chaoticthunder
Ohhh, this old “entitlement” thing. Since when was self-respect considered a bad thing? They are a BIG company chaoticthunder, they don’t need defending and they don’t care if you defend them.

@Housemaster
But, picture this: a 26 episode long Season 3, show accurate merchandise, pony-themed flash tutorials, and Segways for all employees.
In all seriousness though, I would probably make for a pretty bad CEO since I would have so much trouble willing myself to layoff people.

@Arrakiz
Thank you. I agree that the pessimistic view, although unpleasant, is generally the safer route. More often than not, it seems to be right.

@kewln00b
The episode has aired on the HUB edited, so it’s pretty safe to say that Apple is not involved.

Again, if I were to pay someone to make a game for me, I would have a lot of control over it.

Meh? That’s not a very descriptive response…

Well, feedback is appreciated.

@Lightning Bolt
Well considering this is the first thing I’ve created given such a description, I shall take this as a compliment. :)

@The Skullivan
Understandable sentiment I suppose.

Hasbro would still have significant say in a game they payed to be developed, along with sharing in profits.

As Crazy☾ explains, it’s trademark that would force your hand, like with the “Scrolls” and Bethesda episode.

Name calling isn’t very nice…

@Crazy☾
Now although they were forced to respond, I can’t help but think they could have been more open about it. Perhaps they could have talked with the developers and come to some mutually beneficial understanding.

I criticize only because it isn’t how I would run things, not in the slightest. They still have potential, I just don’t see the future trending anywhere positive. There isn’t really anything else to say at this time.

A very nice image, but has been posted before (and in higher resolution):

I think Know Your Meme could use some transform resistant image checksum algorithms.

1. Make sure she is alive
2. Run around outside of house screaming because reality as we know it is collapsing
3. Tell her that breaking into people’s houses and letting in poisonous critters is wrong
4. Teach her how to get a job and her own house
5. Lonely existential crisis
6. ????
7. Become inter-dimensional bounty hunter

Commented on Crystal Empire 8 Minute Teaser

I must say I’m a bit worried. The preview takes a less subtle, more action-directed style, and it feels kind of shaky/unnatural.

I cannot say for certain, but I believe I’ve seen this one before, as well.

@Blue Screen (of death)

Wait, I’m a bit confused, are you saying that mods cannot remove individual posts? Because that would be like having the task of controlling the mosquito population in town, but the only tool you are given is strategic artillery. Sure it might be easy to use it on undeveloped locations, but you might be hesitant to use it on your neighbors for having tires with standing water.

In reference to content filters, there is already a tag filtering system, so it probably wouldn’t require much programming at all to implement some sort of image filter system. You might even be able to do a little hack where you set it so there are tags that only mods can assign, like “safe”, “questionable”, etc.

It might not matter to some, but the mods and users really are not doing a very good job at keeping the gallery SFW. Either people should get a lot less forgiving or, as much as it would pain me to see it, the SFW status should be revoked.

Well you know, he did use a Spike “NOOOOOO” sound bite and that “squee” sound effect in Gmod Idiot Box ep 10.
