    Even if I hated the show, it's not like AS hasn't played stuff I hated before. Like say, back when they played Saved by the Bell for a while. Worst-case scenario, it's as bad as something they already did.

    How about "old/classical music is for fags. techno's for fags. country's for fags."? Among a few other genres of music that aren't metal, modern rock or rap.
    Because I've heard that.
    Also, speaking of fags, homosexuals don't exist or need to stay away. By the way, this isn't a southern state, it's PA

    First, I am the type who watches AS on Saturdays, unless they have new Venture Bros, Saturday is just about the only day of AS programming I care about. And I also rather enjoy MLP too, so I say your stereotypes are unfounded.

    Besides, you really think it's hard to believe that anime fans might like cute colorful, one might even say, childish things? Are you even paying attention to what's popular with the /a/ crowd?

    Now shows like Time and Eric or Assy McGee, those are the shows that the Saturday crowd tends to hate.

    I have never met such a person. There only seem to be three kinds of people. Those who watch it and enjoy it. The people who watch it and while it's not their cup of tea, can respect its qualities. And then there's the bitches who obviously haven't watched it, and argue invalid criticisms based on preconceived notions based on previous incarnations of the franchise, or just the more typical "it's faggy" or "it's for furries" and so on.

    After all these weeks of bitching, I've yet to hear one valid bit of criticism.

    And I'm forced to come to a conclusion based on that observation.

    Nah, there are things worth criticizing for sure. It ain't perfect. But a lot of the crits tend to get the most vocalisation are largely taste-based. For every fan of the show who likes the animation, likes the design, and thinks the writing is clever (given the target age group), there is someone who thinks the animation is "nothing more than cheap flash" the design is "cookie cutter" and the writing is bad.

    I'm sorry to say it, but Pony threads have turned to shit lately.

    I don't mean the sagebombers either, I mean the actual ponyfags: too many of the furry/candy vag/writefags have taken over.

    It's especially true if you look through the original week or two of pony general threads, where something new and interesting was always coming out of them.

    I think it really was set in stone after the sheer amount of awesome in the latest episode went largely ignored in lieu of fetish fuel and fanfic fodder.

    So, this is a personal plea to the true bronies: please stop lurking. I'm tired of reading 200+ CCCD replies.

    I don't think he meant that the show is without its flaws (it's not) just that whenever someone "criticizes the show", it's more criticizing the fan base or going off of their notions of the older generations without actually having watched the new one.

    Most people who watch it and don't like it shrug, maybe say so once, and then move along - no harm no foul. Those kind don't bother with airing their critique because its not worth their time.

    Let's see.

    - overly cutesy behavior
    - a lot of clichés and groaners
    - characters spouting exposition (well, it's a little girls' show, but as an adult, having to listen to a character explain the obvious is... redundant)
    - Flash animation. Yes, it's better than ordinary Flash animation (they have a layouts phase and they have a lot of original drawings in every episode), but it's still Flash, and it shows ALL the time (pic related)
    - general lack of depth and anything to hold an audience's interest (yeah, it's a kids' show, I'm simply pointing this out from an adult perspective)

    It's a cutesy show for girls who like cutesy stuff, and it's animated better than its competitors. That's about it.

    some honest criticisms from someone who likes the show:

    some of the character interactions seem forced just for the sake of setting something up. fluttershy suddenly going rabid on the dragon and rarity/applejack's rivalry are examples.

    the morals at the end feel as though it contradicts the rest of the show's ability to not insult the intelligence of the audience by choosing to spell out the lesson, instead of allowing the audience to just take it in without needing it to be spoon-fed to them.

    though the visual style is really good for the most part, the gradients used for some of the background imagery (namely trees) feels really lazy.

    Rarity and her scarfs in Dragonshy. Not really a criticism of the show as a whole, but come on. Why have her make a scene over dragging out a scarf, and then have her drag out another scarf later, when it doesn't even have anything to do with anything? It didn't even set up for a joke, it was just there for no reason. They didn't even show it to be cold at the top of the mountain, so what's the deal? Really, fuck those scarfs.
    >> Anonymous 12/17/10(Fri)03:26 No.21959215
    Yeah. It's kinda Flashy. It's pretty good Flash, but it's got the fingerprints of the software, and there are moments of the show that are _very_ Flashy. (There are also moments of the show where it's hard to believe they're done in Flash.) But anything with cut-out type animation is going to have that look, it's unavoidable unless something's being re-drawn every time. Some people hate it, other people aren't so bothered.

    I gotta stop you there about the interactions, Rarity obviously shows signs of OCD, and Applejack is a country girl that's all about being practical, so of course they're gonna clash at some point, that was the story, and the reason why Rarity has so many scarves, and the moral is blunt cause it is designed for little girls afterall

    Dear god the Applejack and Rarity slumber party episode was my least favorite and the only one I didn't enjoy. That felt forced as fuck. Don't know about the fluttershy thing though... that wound up being adorable enough.

    Also the lessons at the end of each episode are pretty lame, but they can't really stop now with doing them since it's meant to be a staple of the show.

    Back to that sleepover episode. Seriously why the fuck did they make a sleepover episode and NOT include Pinkie Pie?

    Rainbow Dash's day had certainly taken an unexpected turn. After being flung onto Twilight Sparkle's balcony by Applejack, she floated to the ground and decided it'd be easier on her wings to just walk home. Tired, and a bit agitated, all Dash wanted to do now was kick back and relax on the comfiest cloud she could find.

    As she made her way through Ponyville Plaza, the rustling of a nearby bush caught her attention.

    Curious, Rainbow Dash approached the bush and gave a confused, "Hello?"

    "I-is that you Rainbow?" a soft voice answered and a pair of eyes peeped through the foliage.

    "Fluttershy?" Rainbow Dash asked. "What are you hiding in a bush for?"

    "There was this dark thing following behind me," Fluttershy explained. "I keep trying to get away before it can get close, but-"

    A terrified squeak sounded from within the bush and Rainbow Dash giggled. She knew that Fluttershy was a bit of a scaredy-pony, but this was too much.

    "Wait here for a minute," Rainbow Dash instructed and took off high into the air.

    >The director and writers involved have done MUCH better shows

    It's VERY DIFFERENT from moe shows.

    Moe is aimed at sexually-repressed adults and it shows little girls doing sexually suggestive stuff in their day-to-day lives, i.e. melodrama.
    MLP is about adventures. It's not day-to-day at all. It's an adventure/comedy show.

    So, I agree with everything you say except the moe part.

    Rarity and Applejack have interacted before plenty without clashing at all, that's why I feel their sudden rivalry felt forced.

    As for the scarfs, nothing either of you said really answers that criticism. It's sloppy, is what it is. When you're writing something everything that happens should have some actual purpose, either to set up for a joke or establish something for later on. The scarfs were just a waste of time and had no business being there at all. It feels like they /wanted/ to do something with them, but they didn't have the time so they ended up scrapping the idea altogether. Kinda like how in "Up", they intended for Carl's broken hearing aid and the bird's nest to be used later in the movie, but changed direction.

    The sun was starting to lower into the afternoon and there were clouds scattered about the sky. Clearing up the clouds would only make it easier for the sun to cast shadows about, so the only possible solution was to group them together and make one giant shadow. It took her a few moments, but a Rainbow Dash had created a large fluffy cloud over the plaza. She pushed it near the bush where Fluttershy was waiting and landed next to it. She hoped this plan worked.

    "You can come out now, Fluttershy," Rainbow Dash assured her. "I don't think there's gonna be any shadows to bother you now."

    Fluttershy poked her head from out of the bush and trotted out into the open. She inspected the ground around her and smiled when she saw there wasn't anything lurking nearby.

    "Oh my," she said. "This is much better. Thank you very much."

    "All in a day's work for RAINBOW DASH!" she said proudly.

    "I was hiding for so long," Fluttershy worried. "I hope there's still enough time for me to take the bunny census."

    Fluttershy walked through the plaza under the safety of the cloud. As she started to trot near the edge of its protective shade, Rainbow Dash realized that the returning presence of Flutterhy's own shadow might scare her back into hiding. She sighed and followed Fluttershy into the sunlight.

    >the morals at the end feel as though it contradicts the rest of the show's ability to not insult the intelligence of the audience

    This right here. Most of the time it's really, way less stupid than you would think. But the painfully cliched moral lessons are the only time I hate that show. Some treat the moral lesson pretty well with a heaping helping of jokes and slapstick comedy, such as Applebuck Season, which even had a less overdone moral in the first place. Others are like episode 2 and how it treated "Friendship solves everything" and the defeat of Nightmare Moon made me want to punch my monitor.

    Really, "good story with a well-handled lesson" versus "barely swallowing down the bile in my throat" rate so far is about 50/50 to me.

    And yes, the animation isn't the worst Flash ever, but it's still pretty Flash-esque at times, and while I find the color direction of the backgrounds to be impeccable, the actual drawing and detail level seems lazy and lacking.

    Mm. I sort of wish someone actually had the time and money and willpower to train up Richard Williams style superanimators again. I'd be really interested in what that level of skill could do with the tools and techniques that exist today in less thoroughbred hands.

    Having a vector animation suite that isn't Shockwave "Crashes Every Two Hours" Flash would help too.

    "Did you want to help with the bunny census Rainbow Dash?" Fluttershy asked.

    "Not exactly," Rainbow Dash admitted. "I just thought you might like the company to distract you from your shadow. I mean-"

    "M-my sh-shadow?" Fluttershy's gaze fell to the ground where the familiar dark figure made itself known.

    A loud squeak escaped Fluttershy and she clung tightly to Rainbow Dash.

    As they trotted along, Rainbow Dash stayed quiet while Fluttershy continued to repeat her words. It was a bit troublesome having to watch Fluttershy the whole way home, but it wouldn't have been very loyal of her if she had just left her alone. Today sure had been one unexpected turn after another.

    As they neared Fluttershy's home, she spotted Applejack and Winona heading in the same direction.

    "Applejack?" Rainbow Dash asked.

    "Yes," Fluttershy answered. "She and Winona are helping with the bunny census. Are you sure you won't join us?"

    "No thanks," Rainbow Dash laughed. "I've already had one mishap with Applejack today. She hasn't been acting right lately, so be careful."

    "I think I'll be okay," Fluttershy smiled as she trotted away. "I just have to remember: No scary things, just you."


    Rainbow Dash's heart beat loudly within her chest the whole way home, and she couldn't seem to shake the faint aroma of vanilla from clouding her senses.

    She skips like Pepe Le Pew. She wore flippers and walked like Daffy Duck in Duck Amuck. She frantically shifts to different sides of the frame like Looney Tunes characters.

    two episodes doesn't really mean anything for the show as a whole.

    that'd be like me claiming MLP deals with schoolgirl crushes because Rarity had a fantasy about a prince one time.

    as for those not being present in MLP, it really doesn't matter. PPG was never defined by the violence and action, it was defined by the humor and charm of the writing. No one watched PPG for the action, and as far as the actual substantial parts of each show is concerned they are extremely similar.

    and those are just as much homages as anything in Powerpuff Girls.

    I may disagree with MTL, but at least he's capable of being articulate, unlike yourself. You just keep repeating the phrase "man-children" over and over again as though that were some mystical mantra that automatically validates what you write.

    man, I didn't want to get involved, but come on. We do try our best to keep it in one thread. We even set up this thing to do so:

    What do you define as not keeping it in our threads? Using the reaction images outside of pony threads, or any pony image for that matter? I mean, I can kind of understand if that makes you upset, but does the sight of a single pony really make you that upset?

    And on the subject on "shitting up the board", we try our best to keep it self contained. The fact that people discuss cartoons or comics that you or I don't like is just that, A fact. It's going to happen. I don't like Batman, and because I don't like batman, I don't venture into the threads. It's intolerance like this (ontop of the massive influx of /b/tards and underage from /b/) that has caused /v/ to stoop to the low level that it's at.

    I don't hate the show. I have no personal reason to not like the show. I just think it's really bad and I strongly dislike the angry sentiment it's generating on /co/.


    Keeping it to one thread does not mean anything. When a large fanbase must make a giant human-centipede like thread that must constantly reboot and regrow every two hours with all of the fans being funneled into it, it creates the effect of everyone having to compete to ask questions and remark on specific parts of a show, rather than be free to make their own thread about it without having to worry about being overshadowed by a fanfic or something.

    Not only that, but the constant bumping means everyone having to look at the thread as a constant reminder that /co/ is slowly turning into /v/ with the rampant usage of "General" threads that don't get anything done and fill up too quickly. Homestuck, Adventure Time, and Regular Show fans are also contributors to this.

    The fact that the fandom also has nothing better to do than to make lame, boring, unfunny macros and then use them in almost every single opportunity they can in everyone else's threads doesn't help matters either.

    Warped logic to protect yourself.
    My argument is clear-cut.
    Grown-men should not be watching cartoons for 6 year-old girls. If they do, they're man-children, especially if they're looking way to deep into things, and writing fan-fiction.

    Since you're so intent on discarding and spitting on me for that word, it must bother you. It's also hypocritical of you to come-back at me with the very insult you condemn.
    Unlike myself who use the insult as some actual term, you just use it in a childish "Take that!"
    way. Men who act like children, yourself, are man-children.
    It's a good word to use to describe you.

    You're the one who completely lacks an argument, all you've done is call me a child for being perplexed by you people.
    Here, have a sad reaction, because that's how I feel about our future.

I'm trying to write something cute and loveable and humorous to enhance fan appreciation for the show, because i know that's what you bronies want. More cute, loveable, humorous. Shipping is just a fan-made aspect of the show and one we should all be able to enjoy. Writing a "kissyfuckfest" as you put it, would just ruin that.

    May as well weigh in here. Take with a grain of salt - I'm not a cartoon connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination.

    1) MLP is far from flawless. Despite using Flash very well in some cases, the extra ponies especially suffer from the debilitating effects of symbol copypasta. The writing is quite good when it's good, but it's not *always* good - some episodes are much better written than others. Twilight's end-of-episode reports that started in Ep4 (versus the Ep3 one where it was a natural result of the instigating event) seem shoehorned in. And this is off the dome - other issues may exist.

    2) The show doesn't feel like a toy commercial at all, at least to me. But more importantly: I feel that particular line of argument should be excised from the discussion completely, on BOTH sides - unless the plot/characterization/setting is being co-opted to further a mercantile objective (in which case specific examples should be both obvious and presented), the invisible hand of Hasbro doesn't have anything to do with what makes a show good or bad.

    3) So what makes the show good? "Cute ponies doing cute things" gets you part of the way, although admittedly the Yotsuba effect will only do so much, and it isn't really a distinguishing factor compared to the rest of the media universe. The hints at worldbuilding beneath what is explicitly shown help as well - as ridiculous as it sounds from this distance, talking about a kid's cartoon, there's enough going on to give things real verisimilitude. To present some examples: mentions forward and backward between episodes, details of the mythology in the pilot that could not have been accidental and imply stuff about the nature of the alicorn sisters, cultural practices that are used more globally than just "instigation for this week's lesson, never to be mentioned again". And as for the storytelling, when in the hands of a competent writer (see #1!) the characters play off each other in interesting ways and the moral threats and resolutions follow naturally from their actions.

    It's harder to explain why I like Friendship is Magic than why I like, say, Homestuck, or Gunnerkrigg Court, or Erfworld. It's probably far from the best thing on TV right now (heck, there's 10-year-old stuff on the Hub that I like just as much), and the show has its flaws, both global and episode-local. But overall, it's still a good-quality show, with the kind of heart-warming aesthetic that you don't see a lot in more "grown-up" animation. That and the verisimilitude of the setting (which is a big draw for me personally - c.f. the other /co/-related shit I like) managed to get me interested. And so far, I'm still interested.

    -Twilight trying to mix herself a drink (confound these ponies, etc.) in the first episode. Yes, it was hot sauce, but she didn't know that. Which means she most likely thought it was booze. Underage pony drinking confirmed.

    In episode six, Twilight milks some cows. Afterward, one of the cows says "call me!"

    The latest ep has the shrunken Applejack being called "Appletini." Someone on the staff likes their alcohol references.

    There's probably others, but that will do to start.

    Grown men who watch cartoons aimed to children 6-12 years of age.

    That's pretty much about it.

    The rest of it are just people arguing why the like a cartoon aimed for children and yet still find them appealing to older audiences for some reason.

    I have yet to see any argument against MLP:FIM other than, "stop liking what I don't like!".

    You can't say you are NOT saying that all you want.

    unfortunately you CHOSE to stop that this thread, enter it, and write down some idiotic reason why people who are having fun shouldn't be.

    Someone said something along the lines of,

    "it's bumped so we are being reminded that we are turning into a bad board."

    This board is for the discussion of comics and cartoons. Not always the ones you like. As long as it's comics/cartoons you have no reason to complain and should kindly GET THE FUCK OUT!

    I will not be responding to anyone who replies and any attempt to explain your retarded excuse for attacking this thread will result in(depending on what you say)being reported and/or being filtered.

    What exactly do the critics hope to accomplish with their complaints?

    Every time a show becomes the flavor of the month on /co/, a group of people spring up who feel it's their sacred duty to bitch about it.

    And every single time, they fail to change anything. People tell them to fuck off and then go back to discussing the show.

    So what exactly is the point of constantly bitching about MLP? You're not going to change anyone's mind, anymore than the ponyfags are going to make you love the show. The threads aren't going to go away until people get tired of the show. This will happen sooner or later, but it will not happen because of you.

    If every person who spent time on here complaining about MLP had instead used that energy to make their own thread about something else, pony threads would have been drowned out by other content by now.

    Unless you're a big fan of banging your head against the wall, just hide the threads and move on.

    So, an adult who willingly retains some traits normally construed as `childish`? Okay, fair enough. By that definition I've kind of already admitted to it. Provided I have well-thought-out reasons to retain some properties of childhood, instead of just doing so out of nostalgia or thoughtless attachment, it's not really a bad thing.

    you want to know why the pony threads are such shit? why there are so many trolls? because you people fucking LET THERE BE. You can never just let an obvious troll muck around in his own mud, you always have to encourage them. And while you're encouraging them, you just contribute to the threads being shit by filling them up with stupid internet arguments about a cartoon show instead of having fun with the show itself.

    people that complain about trolls and in the same breath are responding to people that are obviously trolls are the ones that ruin the pony threads. It takes two to tango, so for a troll to prosper you have to allow it.

    >This is a very long-winded way to say "STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE."

    I never told people to stop liking it once.

    My argument is that MLP fans should (pun intended) get off their high horse and realize that their show is not NEARLY as perfect and accessible as they claim it is, that their constant need to act like some sort of force that must "convert people" and build-up a massive arsenal of "U MAD" and "HATERS GONNA HATE" macros is incredibly obnoxious, that their fandom is filled with hypocrites who say they like a show for being cute and innocent only to make rule 34 and go on and on about how so and so's a lesbian who wants to eat candy vag, and that their constant need to come up with an expanding vernacular that only they can understand is annoying and alienating.

    You can like a show all you want like any normal fandom. Symbiotic Titan? Avengers? Spectacular Spider-Man? These are not fandoms that have been attributed to "shitting up the board", and they manage to be well behaved without the need for "general threads". Why? Because they like their show, and they don't make a gigantic pride parade about it. The reason why so many people on /co/ resent MLP fans is because they try SOOOOO HARD to be different, that they try so hard to be something MORE than any other fandom on /co/. That they try to act like their fandom is just so much more important than everyone else's.

    That's not being a "brony". That's being an "ass"

    My main complaint about the show is the lessons at the end. I know they're important and all, but even as a kid I hated shows where you were told the moral outright. I always felt like if the writers do their job, the moral will be obvious; there's no need to have someone say it.

    And the thing is, the morals ARE obvious on MLP. The whole "Dear Princess Celestia, today I learned not to shit where I eat" bit at the end of each episode is totally unnecessary. It always takes me out of the ending.

    "Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."

    As to why I watch this show specifically?

    As to why I value those kinds of things in entertainment? As to why this particular kind of world and narrative is something that strikes my interest?
    Well, we live in a world where, in general, people isolate themselves from each other. And it causes problems, and I've seen several such situations in my life where people, through mutual misunderstanding, push each other away and create all kinds of needless drama which the mutual friend has to deal with (for clarity: in most cases, I'm the mutual friend). So stories about personal interactions, and the stuff that makes them succeed and fail, resonate with my own life and things that I want to understand and talk about. But I also have a sense of aesthetics that appreciates when someone tells a story in a world that is self-consistent and well-constructed in the mind of the author. It means they're doing their homework. It makes the world of the story believable regardless of being unrealistic. So a well-constructed world that is nonetheless one that (generally) manages to be amiable, while still demonstrating the kinds of misunderstandings that exist IRL, works extremely well as a fun, escapist sort of story for me. Light stuff, meant to be relaxed to rather than to be a Work of Art or to Make Me Ponder Deep Truths, but nonetheless resonating with my ideals and the kind of world I'd *like* to see.

    That answer your question?

    Definitely Dash, even though she can be a jerk sometimes.

    But I'm really starting to like them all. It's hard to pick a second favorite.

    Pinkie Pie is my least favorite though. She's grown on me a little, but I still find her obnoxious especially compared to the rest. I know the MLP fans really like her a lot though...

    That phenomenon isn't even isolated to /co/. It happens regularly on every 4chan board devoted to entertainment.

    It happened on /a/ with Lucky Star, One Piece, Code Geass, and K-ON.

    It happened on /tv/ with Lost and Cameron Avatar.

    It happens on /v/ pretty much constantly in every thread.

    Anytime a large enough group of people enjoy something, a group of people who don't enjoy it will rise up to counter them, for no other reason than because they can. It's the way of the internet.

    As I've done in past threads, I'd like to apologize on behalf of the fandom for this kind of thing.

    "We" - that is many people who watch this show and post on /co/ about it or read the threads - try to keep it centralized so people don't have to wade through it. But /co/ has never been a hivemind. There exist people who screw up, or don't care. There also exist people who aren't affiliated at all and make threads to get our collective goats; they're rarer than a lot of folks around here would have you believe, but they absolutely exist - events last weekend where multiple threads were created and then deleted by the OP can't really be construed any other way than "someone is making pony threads but is also interested in disrupting pony threads". But like I said, this breed isn't actually that common either. It's a mix - people who are in the fandom but don't care about community rules, people who just screwed up, and saboteurs all share portions of the pie. And on an anonymous imageboard it's impossible to tell what portions have what names. But - for what it's worth - I'm sorry "Threads About Ponies" have made such a mess on this board, and I - speaking for myself - am doing what I can to help stem that mess.

    Yeah, I couldn't stand Pinkie Pie until weeks after watching and rewatching the episodes, then I suddenly realized why she's there and what she represents. She's practically a reincarnation of an Animaniac, insane and aware of her cartoon physics, the only pony to employ hammerspace and the ability to float if the joke calls for it. She's sorta like Johnny Bravo in that she could fit anywhere and it would work. My favorite was Fluttershy first, then Twilight, and now, of course, Miss Pie. Derpy is my favorite in another way though.

    if it's popular at all, it's someone's job to hate it, just because it's popular.

    sure, they'll give it a shot maybe, but they'll give it a shot knowing that they're going to hate it no matter what. it's popular, and there's nothing it can do to redeem itself because the only reason it's popular is because it appeals to sheeple who are unable to form actual opinions about anything and they are the only person on the planet who can make a sound opinion about anything on the planet.

    You're absolutely right, it's stupid to act like you're "supposed" to post as Anonymous just because it's the default. The tripcode system is there for a reason.


    It's equally stupid to act like being a tripfag is something you can do without any consequences.

    When 95% of the posters here go by Anonymous, that means the other 5% are making spectacles of themselves by the simple act of choosing names. You're intentionally setting yourself apart and calling attention to yourself. And that's fine, there's nothing wrong with that. But it does make you look completely ridiculous when you start attacking others for "trying to be something more" when using a tripcode is doing exactly that.

    Today's lesson: Your choices have consequences. You've traded credibility for notoriety. Your choice.

    and no, it's not the LOL ANONYMOUS LEGION shtick, it's the fact that the only reason anyone DOESN'T post as anonymous is to get recognition for something. You provide content? Great, use a trip when you're doing so. Right now your trip serves zero purpose other than "hey guys, you know that guy who does stuff? yeah, that's me, how's it going".

    You say if we were supposed to post anonymously there wouldn't be a name field; I say if we weren't supposed to post anonymously you'd have to register a name to post.

    fact is the only reason you use your trip is to have some form of e-fame where people know your screen name even though they have no reason to.

    You know, when you make a "General" thread, you're basically saying "Anyone can say anything they want".

    Don't like people criticizing your show in your thread? Don't make it a thread where anyone can waltz right in.

    so you're saying that by simply starting the thread off with, say "IF YOU LIKE FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC POST ITT" then that would magically solve all problems?

    no, it wouldn't. stop trying to act like anyone is inviting anything or that changing the wording of a thread would change who posts in it. people who don't like the show are going to post in the threads to bitch about it regardless. Hell, just look at you. This thread isn't a "general" thread, it's a thread about someone who put MLP on at their job and got some people to like it. So why are you here? Clearly since the thread wasn't inviting everybody to discuss it, you shouldn't be allowed in here!

    It's simple.

    Just make threads about specific parts or aspects of the show that only people who watch the show can really comment on. For example, when Homestuck fans say "Let's discuss the new update" or "What's everyone's opinion on ( I forget the MC's name) getting (verb) by (other character)?", it means that the thread isn't about stating ones general feelings of it. Everyone who should be commenting on OP's topic already know about it once they go in. When people who come in to the thread just say that it sucks, then you know for a fact that it is just a troll, since they weren't "invited" so to speak.

    It may not deter EVERYONE away, but it will definitely give more people less reason to come in and ask why people like it or say something negative.

    They're welcome to say criticisms. It's the opposing people that fucking REPLY to those criticisms so vitriolically that cause the problem, trying to erase the words that sullied their virgin eyes.

    Likewise, those that post compliments. Still okay. It's the opposing crowd throwing jabs that causes the problem.

    The specifics of my attraction to the show weren't rendered to the resolution you see in these posts until you asked, and this post is no exception. But as for the magnifying glass act in general, well, I have a tendency to idly think over any story to which I take a fancy - sucking the marrow gets me more bang for my buck, and if there's good worldbuilding you can go pretty deep before the process starts to break down. It's an opportunity to build my own stories, my own narrative constructions and expressions, from building blocks that I didn't have to provide myself. It's repurposing entertainment as food for thought.

    It's fun.

    There's been a 50-post thread while you've been here attention whoring.

    MLP threads aren't about you, even though you do try your best to get people to talk to you.

    You're a sad, pathetic attention whore.

    oh good, I thought everyone left due to arguments and such. I'm glad you like it though. I kind if screwed up with it, but it's minimalist so I guess nobody will be able to tell.

    Nope. But there's just not a lot going on.

    Also your nyquil walls remind me of foetuses, which scare me.

    Their website usually has a publicly-available list of channels for your area - for Comcast, at least, typing in your zipcode is enough to get the list of "packages" and channels in each package.

    And I'm back.
    The correct answer was the invisible number 3, by the way.
    Which would be 'ignore me' but man-children can't do that.
    I don't believe you can 'win' an internet argument.
    But if there was any time I have, it would be now.
    You may continue.

    You see, I've always raised chickens growing up. And one time, when I was really young I was moving eggs from a broody hen from the hen to an incubator, and I dropped one. Foetuses have creeped me out ever since.

    >MLP fans should (pun intended) get off their high horse and realize that their show is not NEARLY as perfect and accessible as they claim it is

    As an oldfag, I watched cartoons from the 80's to 2010 and I will tell you, in the last four or five years, quality has gone down the toilet. It's easy for /co/ to get a boner from MLP when everything else is shit tier. Even if there was more quality cartoons, MLP is a decent show in its own rights and it does break from the mold of Hasbro 30-minute commercials.
