NMAiE General L23 02/17/2019 (Sun) 04:12:06 [Preview] No. 3485
Not Much Activity in Equestria.

because Equestria was too big for /endpone/to handle that size so it went to Seaquestria instead not mention that we are the dead squad but even those can dance edition (at least, the names are similar, that means we´ll get similar results, right?) RIGHT?!

Nice job with the new general. May Tournevis come and see irory one day.

dead squad rules!

Alright, now I will give a minor status report. Email problems haven't been resolved but I have finally made my attempt to contact the Nextchan admin basically gave up on my old secondary email provider . There is also a secondary project coming this week that will be a prep test for a couple of other things in the future

Now that's outta the way, lets have take a bow to seaponies and there still somewhat unappreciated beauty!

>Nice job with the new general.
yeah. I had to reorganize the descriptions a little bit even though the main scheme was already made in the previous thread.

>May Tournevis come and see irory one day.
I hope he gets to see this too. Just that one doesn´t know where he is these days nor he would care for a shitpost he made in a matter of seconds. I think we give him more credit than what he actually did at the time.

>dead squad rules!
we blew the last thread completely in the last posts: you with the ponies dancing, the BO fixing the screaming with multicolored letters and me for setting up the chaos.

That song I quoted and linked was the most danceable tune I have posted over here and also one that kind of fit to ponies (when it comes to parties). Giving a happy contrast (even if one resorts to the autism method) feels refreshing in a sea of pessimistic/down to earth bibles. The most ironic thing is that the lyrics were written with this line: "everybody is swinging their hips" and for pic related, it would have worked but I had to change it for "shaking their heads" instead in order to fit them more into the party.

But yeah, /endpone/ has delivered and it shows that it´s capable to reach the bumplock in a short period of time (relatively speaking in the altchans league).

I don´t know if it rules but the dead squad did it again. It shows that even those who are theoretically dead in the eyes of everyone, out there in a small corner where no one goes nor bothers to visit that place.....they are dancing.

well, I basically asked in the last thread what you would have liked to see in the OP. You said that either Dolores, Cadence or seaponies would make the cut and spotlight what the /end/ likes posting around.

Are they unappreciated? They are indeed beautiful but I mostly try to hide my praise about them most of the time and attempt to talk about them critically because a blind vision doesn´t encourage any outsider for what you like. Not saying that I am fanboy (dangerously close to that though) but as soon as their designs were shown back in 2017, my eyes seemed to have seen the glory. It´s like it´s almost impossible to go wrong. Whoever designed them, I have to give them my biggest congratulations for the effort.

They are more appreciated these days and for sure, you can fill a quarter or even half of a thread with just great pictures of them. Back when I tried to post them in 2017, you had to be really original with the little content around them and because of them....I started to spontaneously write and the most important event, shitposting them over here because I didn´t have the chance on /mlp/ to do whatever I wanted at the time.

And funnily enough, all of this happened....

there is a certain irony (as you say) about the line in the OP yet self aware and dark at the same time.

It admits that /endpone/ cannot handle Equestria, That doesn´t seem to make sense at first but when you see the /go/ thread and apply it to the fandom, it gets a different meaning that appears inside the subtlety.

The names are indeed similar and the shitposting style comes directly from /mlp/ yet it doesn´t feel like you are there (like a copypasted board). Others are trying to fit a certain niche that isn´t offered in the main sites but this place doesn´t know exactly where it wants to land. It simply goes and goes without looking further than the usual day after day mindset.

Also, Seaquestria. You know that water to most people eyes doesn´t land in the most desirable place and one doesn´t even bother to check nor feels encouraged to that at first. Water is either too serene or too scary (and I commented about that last year). However, that´s the secondary meaning behind this.

The main intention with this line is that I realize and announce that /endpone/ gets hidden and stuck in a hellhole. When someone says that it´s going downhill, it doesn´t imply anything good. The deeper you go, the least satisfactory it becomes and more of a distorted hell appears. Everyone wants to end in heaven but no one wants to find relief while looking at themselves with a sight focused to the underworld, under their bodies. It puts this board in the place where it belongs.

Basically, what I am saying is that it will never get relevant, /endpone/ has been autodefined as a squad that it´s about to repeat the same mistakes other fans did in the past, so many fans trying to become relevant yet they fail miserably after all. This place in the /end/ is something irrelevant to the public whose creators have left on its own luck. A little corner and not an entire world as one would like to imagine.

/endpone/ won´t rise save in its own site but that´s like turning on a lightning in the middle of a gloomy forest.

The advantages of it however, is that acts like the party that happened yesterday or thoughts that you wouldn´t usually show over those mainstream places. Not many will judge them, you feel a weird sense of liberty for doing them.

No one will care and I suppose that finding some comfort according to your own circumstances is the actual key to move forward and feeling satisfied with what one does to himself.

Nah, we were just joking around. The point is that this simple shitpost from somebody who is MIA ironically became the thread that is the fulcrum general for this board inherently going against it's nature for such a post.

It's a rainbow in the dark. It's fluid and if one lets themselves think about it, perhaps almost a little scary. At least if you fear aberrations and want to shy away from something that sends mixed signals and feels like both and neither. Being defined is comforting...

This board is in the unknown. Not hell, not heaven just floating in a void. And...

>Basically, what I am saying is that it will never get relevant, /endpone/ has been autodefined as a squad that it´s about to repeat the same mistakes other fans did in the past, so many fans trying to become relevant yet they fail miserably after all.
Who said becoming relevant was every boards endgame? It was never it's purpose to. I don't believe we are about to repeat those places mistakes and tbh, some of them the jury is still out because it is our path to choose, and one that still lacks definition and has still gone far past it's initial goals.

>The advantages of it however, is that acts like the party that happened yesterday or thoughts that you wonldn´t usually show over those mainstream places. Not many will judge them, you feel a weird sense of liberty for doing them.
Indeed, it feels like a laboratory of experimentation. Free from the harsh judgment of /mlp/ and allows you t refine things. Indeed, I would not post even my wonky proto-fic there. But I do have plans to post another.

You don't have to reply to everything. None of us have been perfect in that. Just reply to stuff that you have a few bits to say, even if you only reply to a post it's better than trying to come up with stuff on a subject you don't care and rather move on from. Heck, you could even reply to nothing if you just wanna move on. No need to fret over it.

They are appealing. Not simplistic enough to be over marketed like the minions, not over designed like the "harmony power" ponies from the season 4 final, and not drawing too much from IRL seahorses to be kind of bland and or creepy. I can understand how'd you feel that way considering the other paths that could've been taken.

yeah, I suppose that comes from all the experiments that this board does. Normally a shitpost doesn´t contribute at all but when I saw that we reached the bumplock, I knew I had to make a general like MLPG, just that they had an established name and this board didn´t. I simply copied his line and voila, there you have a general with its acronym. Thanks for contributing with your shitpost....

honestly, a shitposter/troll wants attention but I think he would have never expected this and most likely if he came back (which I highly doubt it because as Spy Kids 2 would say: God stays in heaven because he too lives in fear of what he´s created), he would think twice before opening a thread like that.

From a shitposter to the antinatural productive post to remember...

That´s how the /end/ works. Pretty funny, I don´t think if I have seen this on 4chan save a Hi Anon thread that turned into an unironic Cadence thread.

>I can't wait to see what I'll blow this one with.
well, I see that you have liked it. I simply threw that song because of inertia and I said to myself: "To the hell we go, this thread is lasting more than it should. Autistic or not, I feel like doing this right now". And that was it, I was in a happy mood and saw the chance to bomb it with full caps for it. The best for last, that trend should happen more often and reward the users for keeping the interest until the very end I hope the show does the same

As for the next one, I...I have to think about something for that in the meantime.

>it's a rainbow in the dark. It's fluid and if one lets themselves think about it, perhaps almost a little scary.
not going to lie, you have to reread the first posts from the first thread. The posts show signs of awkwardness and that´s because no one at that time thought that this was going to happen. I had fear but as time went further, things were getting developed.

>At least if you fear aberrations and want to shy away from something that sends mixed signals and feels like both and neither.
that´s a double edge weapon. Serves as memory tool that you use at your will. I would have liked to rethink the first posts of the personal project but even those aberrations can lead to something else....so, nothing is discarded. Hell this thread has in its title a line from a shitposter that mindlessly opened a thread with a random image reaction.

>Being defined is comforting...
ironically enough, I think /endpone/ has some definition attached to it but for a certain period in it, not a permanent one.

>Who said becoming relevant was every boards endgame? It was never it's purpose to.
and that´s why I admit that handling this site as a great pillar to carry on the fanbase would be not only delusional but also it would lead to drastic changes. Even if I look like I am complaining, I am basically admitting that I have to look for the mundane posts and directions for it and leave fake expectations aside, simply focusing on what one faces as usual. Sometimes, I have to confess that I kind of shitpost as if I were thinking loudly and not messaging necessarily to someone else. Part of me wants that success because my young spirit wants to eat the world because in the future, I won´t be able to do it.

However, I have made these posts just to take that idea away and instead of aiming so high, I aim to the places that I like or feel like doing spontaneously (in short, being myself) and so, what´s better than a place that resembles a little corner?

Even if I managed to get that high, what would happen next? What do I gain? One thinks that one will reach the heavens but there´s only space in which you are floating around instead too much of a Spiritualized fan for not referencing them.Not to mention that one can die of success,so I suppose that the successful philosophy doesn´t always work.

>I don't believe we are about to repeat those places mistakes and tbh, some of them the jury is still out
indeed,some of those are alive and with relatively recent peaks in activity

>because it is our path to choose, and one that still lacks definition and has still gone far past it's initial goals.
wise words. As I said, I have ambitions and as young individual, I feel that the energy and my nonconformist spirit will get consumed after a while.

But those are pretty wise words that defy destiny, I cannot deny that.

>it feels like a laboratory of experimentation. Free from the harsh judgment of /mlp/ and allows you t refine things.
if we repeated and copy-pasted all the aspects from /mlp/, this board would become another one of the bunch in a million (there are not that many pony boards but I wanted to bring more intensity to the term average). If this board felt like that, would you have any reason to visit this if you already have it with more IPs and activity?

And there are not that many people to be that harsh because you cannot hide that easily, pretty easy to detect the shitposter over here and discover the intentions behind the actions.

>Indeed, I would not post even my wonky proto-fic there. But I do have plans to post another.
you mean, the Revolution fic or one that you have prepared?
But yeah, the only way to learn is by trying and failing....and most importantly, showing ideas that you wouldn´t usually try but could lead to something else. The base is important to appeal someone else but once is established, only the creator or the leader knows how to carry on that creation.

>Everything acording to the admin was nuked by a hacker... Everyone's acounts...
I can access with my account....weird. Anyway, one that knows about technology should know that everything is hacked at this point. Just that certain attacks are pretty annoying to deal with, which sadly seems to be your case.

>No reply as of yet. Though the admim is sometimes inactive from time to time. I'd figure I'd email first than try ta hop in if I saw him or one of the board volunteers post if I don't get a reply in the next week or two.
well,that should work. Don´t worry if you don´t get an answer soon, Nextchan is nothing more than a backup place and the state of that board isn´t going to change that much unless there is some activity around.


>a simple underwhelming prototype of a couple at least I have an idea of something.
well, that could serve. One isn´t born knowing until it keeps trying and focusing on how to improve it. I already know that you can handle the usual narrative structure with ease so eh, it´s already been proven before. Go for it or recheck it if you don´t feel that confident.


>>3501
I am guessing that the BO did this >>3497 and my advice is that one should not feel forced about replying to anything. The replies are mostly content to reply and a tool to keep this active or you can go on your own way without feeling the need to pay attention to them. Hell, you can even bring up a past topic from previous threads to the spotlight again if you feel like doing so.

So many choices out there...
the only posts that I have felt (morally/ethically speaking) were about the review of the Revolution fic. That´s where I felt like I had to reply with a more serious tone or putting a more reflective tone for feedback, reading the fic like 4 times before jumping onto the keyboard. Well that and when things enter into a private zone, a place that I take with lots of respect.

side effects that filled my 2018 with lots of entertainment and ideas I wouldn´t have thought to apply. That and a huge confidence gain when it comes to posting on the internet. There´s nothing to fear I guess.

>That's the advantage here
funnily enough, the fic I have posted over there: Novo´s and Midnight Radiance´s fics were pretty well received. The implication about DWK happened without glory nor pity, no replies came about that one.

But yeah, that advantage is one of the biggest reasons why I should aim at what one can afford without those harsh consequences.

>I still sometimes see a shitpost or two but nothing that substantial at this point.
if I told what I did to make them a little bit popular on /mlp/, you would be pretty surprised. Now there are almost 2700 images about them but back then, in 2017....imagine how to run a thread without being a sad bumpfest nor a lonely circlejerk for reaching the bump limit.

Fortunately, the fanabse feels less alien (and I mean, /mlp/ mostly) towards them, so everything should go with a less rough path.

>They are appealing.
indeed.
>and not drawing too much from IRL seahorses to be kind of bland and or creepy. I can understand how'd you feel that way considering the other paths that could've been taken.
you cannot believe how much of a relief they brought when they were shown in the teaser trailer. Or even the Skystar pic with her VA, as soon as I saw her design, I found relief and left my fears aside (considering that they come from gen 1) with that aspect. I honestly don´t know how I would have made them better than what we´ve got (even though those alternative designs are pretty sick as well). I can complain about lots of things but as for these designs, I have not found anything that worries me. They feel really natural and translate pretty well to the FiM settings as far as I am concerned.

>Not simplistic enough to be over marketed like the minions, not over designed like the "harmony power" ponies from the season 4 final
As for the overdesigned aspect, the design department was planning about making Queen Novo blue and the hippogriffs were much more alien to the spirit of this show. Sure, they would have been more outstanding....but more outlandish and too complicated for the world established (like the previous pic)

I was going to bring up the Minions at some point but this serves more for ponies in general.

For starters, the seapony design has the same body structure to draw for eveyone who transforms so that makes them as simple as drawing a pony. It replaces the hooves from the back with a pretty big tail and one unique aspect that comes from the design is by creating another fin for the Cutie Mark with personal forms for each pony. Pretty genuine. Also those who have wings amplify their bodies more than the pony design to make them more flowing (which makes sense considering the fluid medium).

So, about the Minions. They have been exploited to death, they have had astronomical waves of marketing to the point in which it gets obnoxious for those who are not looking out for them (FiM seems like an educated angel when it comes to commercial strategies) and its movie is the 2nd highest grossing animated film of all time (I think?). So they are popular and universal but here it´s the catch:
can you tell me about a single aspect unique of each one? Or hell the main three ones? Any character trait? Anything that stands out above the other one?

So when it comes to design, FiM has always stayed simple and it shows.

An exercise of that is showing pictures of them in black and white. The colors are what have saved them to stand out and you can notice in the most iconic picture of the mane 6 that all of them share those anime eyes that definitely look for the easy route for sales ("buy them buy them!look at their shiny colors!" mindset). No wonder Rainbow Dash became really popular among them because she stands out with a more defiant look and easily, turning out as the tomboyish figure of the six that appeals to males as well (she is competitive and that look helped a lot).

You know, colors look nice and they appeal a lot but they say that a black and white picture shows the essence and emotions of those who appear in it. Now, see the other one, can you mistake them?

Same protagonists and cutesy designs (seaponified) with no color at all to make them different other than basic tones of BW. Maybe for Roseluck, Amethyst Star, Lyra and Minuette altogether would have proved that Hasbro is horrendously cheap when it comes to designing characters but the question is:

why is it harder to get confused by who is who than the Illumation franchise? what makes them different?

I didn´t know that /sp/ still cared about endchan, considering that they have left it on its own luck after last spring, much less about a pony board.

And yeah, /pone/ has stayed in the top 10 most of the time. It hasn´t reached the first place yet on this site though, so we get the silver medal instead.

>Funny enough this is probably the most organized board I have seen under 10000 post.

Ponies are magic and still have some steam over the chans (where they actually belong and were born in the first place whethere you like it or not).
They hold up over the years because they have to deliver something over here, aren´t they?

>I still think you're fags but I have to tip my hat to the autism.
thanks, the fanbase(not only here) is pretty well organized in general, darling.

if you actually checked the content deeper posted in the OP, the fag tag would change but eh, I am okay with that

I almost want to say it would be the equivalent of the awkwardness of the primitive natives worshiping trash you through out as a deity. Not quite the metaphor I'm looking for but I think you can get the point.

> I simply copied his line and voila, there you have a general with its acronym. Thanks for contributing with your shitpost....
Honestly not much different than how the fandom can take one superficial trait of a character (Derpy's eyes) and can turn it into something with meaning. Not quite the same thing, but close enough to count for what I'm saying. One may not be able to call it genius but one can call it fun to do.

>>3504
>The posts show signs of awkwardness and that´s because no one at that time thought that this was going to happen.
Oh boy I don't think I've looked back there in months. They do I bet. My original thought was that I'd just reply as long as somebody else did, but as stuff started to arise I started to take things somewhat seriously by the months end.

>nothing is discarded.
That maybe /endpone/'s motto in a way. Dolores from a word filter, our general from a mindless shitpost, etc. It's all things that we took to the next level from the simple jokes that existed. Since the end was so sparse we took what we had.

>and that´s why I admit that handling this site as a great pillar to carry on the fanbase would be not only delusional but also it would lead to drastic changes.
The closest thing I could see the end being established as would be that shadowy place where a few fags simi-circlejerk and occasionally post OC from I fully intend to post a fic or two on /mlp/ proper... maybe elsewhere maybe as an underground archive if /go/ works out. All of which could at most bring perhaps a few more regulars but nothing pillar level. For us to be a pillar would require significant changes and some bending to the whim of the mass opinion (not to mention I don't see a path forward to that anyway unless one of us became a ridiculously good content creator and several other boards collapsing.) It could break down a lot of the experimentation and one of us would have to step up to be a leader where choices have significant consequences and scrutiny.

>However, I have made these posts just to take that idea away and instead of aiming so high, I aim to the places that I like or feel like doing spontaneously (in short, being myself) and so, what´s better than a place that resembles a little corner?
Indeed. I think of here as a little town (maybe a simi abandoned) or restaurant with a few regulars and the occasional drifter that stops by. It's free from prying eyes and random experiments are welcome.

>Not to mention that one can die of success,so I suppose that the successful philosophy doesn´t always work.
>part of me wants that success because my young spirit wants to eat the world because in the future, I won´t be able to do it.
Don't tie abundance to success and don't simply give up once you reach a future state of responsibilities that you believe will be constrained with age would be what I'd say.

>But those are pretty wise words that defy destiny, I cannot deny that.
You can be grounded without giving up. I certainly see this board as no pillar, but I'm not going to think this board is bound by the destiny of being a failure, wherever it goes.

>But yeah, the only way to learn is by trying and failing....and most importantly, showing ideas that you wouldn´t
Oh yeah, I certainly have a few strange ideas that I want to try. The simplistic homemade art style in th story I just posted may not seem so stupid in a dream themed story. Prototypes like I just posted are just training. I'm fully prepared to post an oddball story or concept that may fail completely but I want to assemble the ideas together and get my bearings a bit.

It's not endchan but my email provider. Small company, had an attack that supposedly nuked everything on there servers.

>Don´t worry if you don´t get an answer soon, Nextchan is nothing more than a backup place and the state of that board isn´t going to change that much unless there is some activity around.
Yeah. If the boards here are going to get nuked I'd think they (or just he now?) would at least have the courtesy to tell us. Though I have seen several boards and sites, even active ones go offline sometimes without any warning.. so I'm always a little bit paranoid.

>I already know that you can handle the usual narrative structure with ease so eh, it´s already been proven before. Go for it or recheck it if you don´t feel that confident.
This introduces a concept but was more of a test construction. Early alpha. Next one can be thought of as early beta and will have more to offer even if it doesn't resemble what I plan ta do.

>As for the overdesigned aspect, the design department was planning about making Queen Novo blue and the hippogriffs were much more alien to the spirit of this show.

Oof. Yeah. Though if they brought in a high fantasy style creature or two that were overdesigned I wouldn't care but as for a fellow pony that would've not worked for me.

>So, about the Minions. They have been exploited to death, they have had astronomical waves of marketing to the point in which it gets obnoxious for those who are not looking out for them (FiM seems like an educated angel when it comes to commercial strategies)
It sure can be obnoxious though I'm not prone to complaining it can be annoying when they show up in your back yard.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest-grossing_animated_films#cite_note-minions-8
You're right until a few months ago. Didn't know that. Don't wanna complain but the way the mainstream treated our somewhat generic pony movie compared to them...

>can you tell me about a single aspect unique of each one? Or hell the main three ones? Any character trait? Anything that stands out above the other one?
I actually ran into this point when reading/watching martial analyzing the minions in there own film. The star characters had no different personalty than each other or the supporting minions. Minions are what soulessness looks like to an extreme. They were designed purely on viral appeal and adaptability in a way few others can compare, even toy cartoons back in the 1980s themselves.

>why is it harder to get confused by who is who than the Illumation franchise? what makes them different?

well, let´s see how it goes.

>>3522
that picture is either modern or contemporary. I am having my doubts where I would tag this "masterpiece"

>it would be the equivalent of the awkwardness of the primitive natives worshiping trash you through out as a deity.
there are worse things to worship out there but hey, everyone has to start somewhere.

>not much different than how the fandom can take one superficial trait of a character (Derpy's eyes) and can turn it into something with meaning
that´s true.
>One may not be able to call it genius but one can call it fun to do.
exactly, I was about to mention that the point was not about being genuine (even though it served as an excuse to continue all of this) but having random fun without expecting anything else in the long term.

>My original thought was that I'd just reply as long as somebody else did
literally the same.

>but as stuff started to arise I started to take things somewhat seriously by the months end.
it all happened without thinking too much. Just replies and replies, several thoughts thrown at here and maybe at a certain day, you would catch me writing greens. At what point did this get really serious? I would say that for a point of reference, the bat pony fic is mostly remembered but I think it happened earlier.

>That maybe /endpone/'s motto in a way.
>Dolores from a word filter, our general from a mindless shitpost, etc.
and Luna´s banner straight out of the old Canterlot Daily. The day /endpone/ doesn´t let this kind of metaposting and going beyond the things were originally intended...to the point where outsiders believe that we have more original content than other boards.

>It's all things that we took to the next level from the simple jokes that existed. Since the end was so sparse we took what we had.
you wrote a little bat pony fic surrounding Twilight because of a random spammer. I think that´s the prime example of what you are describing.

>It could break down a lot of the experimentation and one of us would have to step up to be a leader where choices have significant consequences and scrutiny.
sweet mother of Celestia, that would require some moderation that cannot end up well. Experimentation is what has driven this board to go forward and develop a joke to a concept. So yeah, basically a few regulars at best....and even then, poni.fun isn´t having that fast rhythm as I was expecting at first. It´s really unlikely to attract a big group over here and convince them to bring some activity daily.

>I think of here as a little town (maybe a simi abandoned) or restaurant with a few regulars and the occasional drifter that stops by. It's free from prying eyes and random experiments are welcome.
you are point with your replies today. Nice /)

>Don't tie abundance to success and don't simply give up once you reach a future state of responsibilities that you believe will be constrained with age would be what I'd say.
I know and that doesn´t sound as a bad advice. Just that everything seems to be so uncertain and one correlates easily success with having a good base in the youth for having better times later, mostly because age could prevent from doing more actions that would restrict me. Maybe life is longer than I expect and there are little twists down the path that will define it without overthinking too much.

>I'm fully prepared to post an oddball story or concept that may fail completely but I want to assemble the ideas together and get my bearings a bit.
just tell me if you want some a few ordinary comments or a serious review whenever it comes. Just like experiments in science, I have to see the recipe and check how it goes. I will tell if that´s odd or not to my eyes at least.

>The simplistic homemade art style in th story I just posted may not seem so stupid in a dream themed story.
MLP has got rid of several cliches and the most important parts about a story is about its execution. It doesn´t matter if it´s SoL, a piece of action/adventure or a fantastical themed story, the biggest pillar for any story in this franchise is what you want to make out of it and how you deal with the intentions behind it.

MLP requires to be more open minded than most shows. It doesn´t have filler because even the smallest interactions, dialogues or details could bring the key of that story onto the table. Even girly stuff that seems uninteresting like dresses can deliver a powerful message to the video game industry (Canterlot Boutique)

well, I posted it on the Rarity thread once (in the first posts by the way, anyone could have seen it easily) and there were no comments at all. I thought I would get a reply because of showing Rarity saving someone and how anons around there love their waifu but it seems that I posted that material at the wrong time.

Oh well, it doesn´t matter, it´s there anyway. I have reflected those thoughts with that story and available to read at anytime.

>We live in better times now well in regards to seaponies
which I honestly welcome. Those times were pretty annoying, much more when Derpi applied the MLP Movie pictures as spoilers and all the seapony material was hidden behind the thumbnails. Pretty annoying unless you browsed with the +18 filters. That also lead to the problem that people would be less encouraged to look for that content. As for kirins however, they got rid of the spoiler tag in their period of hype and that helped to spread content easily and share them over the different sites.

>if they brought in a high fantasy style creature or two that were overdesigned I wouldn't care but as for a fellow pony that would've not worked for me.
I would put those designs on high regard for having the will to go avant-garde in this franchise, breaking barriers and go almost to the PKMN route when it comes to original designs. The problem is that they wouldn´t work because they clash and would feel too exotic for the average body structures you see frequently.

>It sure can be obnoxious though I'm not prone to complaining same. I don´t bother nor I give them attention. I have the mindset of seeing them as the average character you see in kid friendly places. Nothing else.

>Don't wanna complain but the way the mainstream treated our somewhat generic pony movie compared to them
the 2017 movie may be generic but it was properly executed at delivering good entertainment. Pretty standard and traditional but it carried its charm in it. A 3.5 from IGN and a 47% rating in RT
between the Minions and the Emoji Movie having more success,I wonder where this society wants to go. Like Stanley´s narrator would say: "I find this very concerning"

>They were designed purely on viral appeal and adaptability in a way few others can compare, even toy cartoons back in the 1980s themselves.
even in the worst gens of MLP you could point out different ponies because of their color and their different degrees of innocence/girlishness.

>The star characters had no different personalty than each other or the supporting minions.
in reality, they were meant to be the funny part of Despicable Me but making an entire production out of it, it seems wrong. At least, the villain was more unique but that´s sad when you can´t tell the 3 protagonists. Take a shot whenever you see a Minion toy or any product related to them and get confused at telling who is in that product.

>it's reductionism vs simplicity. I was about into a mini essay explaining what I mean but I'm too sleepy at the moment.
you were tired when you posted this but yeah, that could sum it up for the most part.

the servers problem is nothing new for this site. In fact,I am surprised that it's been running without many mistakes during these months. Last spring,it was certainly unbearable.

>I mean, with what happened to m old email service provider didn't make me paranoid enough...
that provider must have been Derpy or something. That's fucked up and pretty annoying,one understands that.

However,I don't think that one reason for such paranoia justifies the actual cause to be like that for a different case. There are two things that you should consider in the land of darkness and doom that you are projec
ting.
First,endchan's twitter account has been active this month and /operate/ cannot get claimed.
And secondly,we are the first to shitpost in record time in this site. If one cared about endchan coming back,the other one wouldn't fall short on his interest either.It basically means that you and I have simultaneously posted as soon as the servers came back. Haven't you stopped for a second just to think about it? If the BO replied tonight,you've got the full party recovered.

If that's not loyalty,I don't know what else could fit to that term.

>Just that everything seems to be so uncertain and one correlates easily success with having a good base in the youth for having better times later,
It indeed does. Though it ain't impossible to turn it around later. I mean, to be frankly honest, I am even on more shaky ground than you right now and things are far more questionable in planning. Perhaps it's a matter of perspective, my state is too personal to fully explain and I'm not sure I'd makes sense with the bits I've said when looked at together, living without running water for several months and under various other different types of strain for most of my life being at the mercy of various different forces at various different points of my life. There is another side to that too, as somehow in all of that I still consider some parts of my life privileged and it'd be very hard to explain all the sheer strangeness
so I what I consider an improvement or an opportunity may not be to and I may have a strange perspective, as my state right now even would probably be seen more negatively.

Spinoff with comedic charaters really work because they were usually part of a success of something and can't really stand well on there on. Minions are even half this, because they were just kid memebait that worked too well.

The reason why I think I love this picture is that it feels like how all these over designed OCs from the fandom's early days were supposed to look like. This feels like that over designed elaborateness actually developed rather than a mistake that is relegated to noobs.

Additionally, shout out to BO for his work adding font to the banner. I know he has said he isn't an artist but he perfectly matched the branding with the font.

that was the point of the /end/, wasn´t it? Seeing and imagining how things would be if we witnessed how the times of decadence happen in front of our eyes. And even if everything is dead, nature always offers some free energy out of nowhere. The night-blooming-cereus blooms at night and offers a nice view at an unusual time.

I suppose ponies are the remaining path and resource to post over here even if only 3 posters care about them, it´s proven to be strong enough to carry the lead for a while, especially on post-maintenance periods.

>From endchan's servers demise, see /pone/ arise!
9 years after their appearance and despite that tiring run, they manage to get there. Same thing happened with Amore, only 4 posts and this board blew up to the 4th position. Nothing new for this board to have these ups on the ranking but I never expected to reach the gold medal anytime soon.

>Normally I'd mostly agree, but >>3544 >>3546.
someone should remind me to shut my mouth up at times. I wasn´t that optimistic yet it happened. Never say never again.

>Fortunately I do not see that happening.
Agree on what you say...

unless a big company does an AMA on this chan and gets its spotlight on mainstream media. Let´s see if you know what I am referencing to.

>I am even on more shaky ground than you right now and things are far more questionable in planning.

well, like the BO said, I prefer the stable times if that´s the price in order to live in "interesting" times

not to mention that the uncertainty you may be referrring could be at professional level and temporal jobs and things like that consume your brain way more than they should.

>what I consider an improvement or an opportunity may not be to and I may have a strange perspective, as my state right now even would probably be seen more negatively.

yeah, a solid backup whenever things go wrong so that brings a sense of relief (for the worst case scenario). We have had it all this time since last May. However, if this board disappears, endchan will have a pony mark stuck with its death.

>Though my /go/lden oaks I plan on maintaining Indefinitely regardless of endchan's or even /pone/'s state.
more than the posters, it´s more about the influence and what you can take out of it. If you can carry that project, go ahead wherever you go with it. I think that it approaches an interest for the fandom in general. It would be awkward that other fandom pages block you or don´t catch the interest from a certain group inside the community.

>I actually may revisit it, though it's a side priority right now, I have a special small reason to.
that´s funny because I wrote it after watching Blade Runner 2049. I don´t know if I could write that today. Any review or reflection about it is what intends.

>Am I sensing salt?
sort of. I don´t hate kirins, in fact, you could change any new species (let´s say that they introduced lamia,plane or snake ponies whatever X species) and I would react the same way. It´s not about the content itself and I hold Sounds of Silence at the top of season 8. So what´s the problem exactly? Mostly about Derpi´s organization/mindset with the spoiler tag.

Everyone saw the movie at that point, only China was left I think. It took one entire year to remove it. It didn´t help that I was a fool and I could have used the Rule 34 filters to reach them easily. They were the promoting material from that film. If you overshadow it, it brings less attention and the hype runs out and gets less diffusion over the community. Picking the images without seeing the thumbnail first is sort of a handicap for that material.
The hippogriffs have stayed relevant but if someone was a Celaeno fan, it would have been even more frustrating.
Fortunately, I have seen signs of the community posting them as if they were traditional picks along with Tempest. At least, in the long run, they have made the cut.
Kirins however, have exploded too soon. Their hype was abysmal and I think that the fanbase has taken a little break from their material until this season brings them a new life.

>Minions are even half this, because they were just kid memebait that worked too well.
it´s not like the first spin off that does this, I agree. It´s just that it has taken off and blown out of proportions when it wasn´t intended to bring that much substance to begin with. All they had was like you say, a meme status between kids. I suppose that childish comedy works but like MLP, one cannot avoid shame when a cashgrab becomes more successful without any effort.

They are harmless anyway. Just that I am criticizing harshly that business practice/model which companies could follow for thriving and repeating in the future (like Shrek for example. While the movie itself was a joy to watch, its clones....well...you know where I am getting at)

one can imagine lots of things and scenarios. I have had visions about throwing myself or other people around me to the subway rails lots of times and here I am. One is free to think whatever they want, I cannot interfere to those thoughts.

over complicated just to throw a big contrast to the show´s innocent nature. Those were the edgy times.While Koveliana cannot be considered as the 8th wonder, those pictures sure offer a visual pleasure.

Either way, in retrospective, MLP should have never reached those levels of quality yet the fans, in this case, an artist goes out of the theoretical way and makes this....

gen 4´s style is magic.

>This feels like that over designed elaborateness actually developed rather than a mistake that is relegated to noobs.

Any good artist can jump onto what whatever it wants (pony, human, anthro, different species/body types....), the artstyle and level of care is what will appeal its material by nature.
I mostly felt attracted to that picture because it reminded (and still does) of Milotic, an elegant pkmn by excellence. I would have never approached this picture like you do.

>that was just me getting to random art related thoughts outta the way.
art is meant to transmit that. Maybe you have had time to stop and appreciate those little details that while one may not take out at first, after a while, it grows in an unexpected way.

A really beautiful picture at first, it still is.

You may have noticed by now but I am saying it either way. The .net and .xyz versions of this site run really slow for its own good. The org. domain is what normally works after these maintenance periods as a backup and it´s the only one that seems to be working for me.

Just a quick note for everyone because it might seem that the site is still inaccessible while it´s actually working.

>holy molly
TBH I feel quite split on my life and how to view it and probably shouldn't have mentioned that little fact there, at least in that way. Basically I've been in a wide variety of situations and to fully explain it would require to go far into the personal.
Because victimhood and introversion are desired and reduced so much on the net as a way to be cool and gain social status, so it makes me a little aloof in such matters unless something comes up
I could present myself in such a light, and has I've had some very significant down points. It be dishonest to present it as just that though. Even if I could select experiences that I could give the impression of a poor kid who lived on the rough side of town (Drugs, gang violence, one guy tried to set my family's house on fire from the back alley, etc). And that little bit really paints a picture, but it ain't a full one (the drugs were usually tame, by my teens the gang violence had died down to the point where I hardly ever run into shady people in my neighborhood, and that setting house on fire was one incident, I'm not the only one who had to deal those crazy neighbors, I once spent awhile in the countryside away from town, etc). I will say that I am unsure how to characterize it all, and there is a lot of strange forces and situations that I would certainly say were probably not very comparable to others, but were too mundane to consider truly amazing or bad, just strange enough to raise questions in a way. I don't wanna join that social media game, so I won't raise any issues again unless something really relates to the topic or I drawn on some life experience for a fanfic
Not that I've been misleading y'all, just that I don't wanna come across the whole victumhood/my amazing odd life pie

>not everything new means something good.It´s fine to stay skeptical about the new waves that could interfere more than you would be capable of.
Actually I was meaning that I had somethings that I considered victories/opportunity from what others would see as a constrained environment, and I wasn't sure if my perspective was a little wonky do to the unstable environment. Speaking of which...

>well, like the BO said, I prefer the stable times if that´s the price in order to live in "interesting" times
Wise advice, my only add on to it would be not to giving up improving your state or having fun when in a state of mundaneness, other wise you stop living life.

This is one of those things where one's first reaction is to think you're a little nuts but when one stops to think random thoughts like this are natural, even if it feels wired to talk about. I reminds me of thinking about jumping off tall buildings in a non-suicide but just wondering what it be like.

>over complicated just to throw a big contrast to the show´s innocent nature. Those were the edgy times.
That was part of the appeal. Cupcakes, Rainbow Factory and th other creepy pasta's , Princess Molestia, Various edgy fics, Luna Games, etc. It was interesting and in some cass quite toxic with all the attention some of those works got outside of the fandom and was an entry point for many.

Indeed. That's all I have to say. Those pics are quite nice and shows that being elaborate is just a noob mistake.

>Than again I'm been a little out of habit of my usually sleuthing around the net the last few months. What is going on?
basically what you are going to see and what has happened this last week is what actually gives any chan a big quantity of newfags or outsiders that check it out of curiosity.

Without the help of mainstream media,nothing would have happened and there were several AMAs like this before on 8chan.
Anyway,just browse: "8chan Thq Nordic AMA" and you will see that all the headlines point out the same drama: child pornography on the site; and because,it brings a bad name and or publi city to the company.

Almost all if not all the mediums point out this as the most problematic and unique aspect about 8chan ,by adding an edgy touch that the site is actually banned from google's browser.

So basically,for an event like this,all the video game journalists and then youtubers jumped onto it and this example serves on how a chan earns lots of newfags overnight.

I will try to reply properly tomorrow

as if you were the only one. In fact, I have looked for those feelings as well, finding comfort and beauty in those places that in theory, shouldn´t happen. Not the flower that shines the most but for sure it gives you some hope and relief.

>Reminds me of a couple of fanfics with abandoned ruins.
you don´t have to go that far away or at least that´s what I imagine with pic related.

>who cares about downtime with cute ponies anything is possible.
well, for sure I needed them for shiposting over 1400 posts or so over here. I don´t know their actual power but for sure, they lead us to this post number and staying together after one entire year. Is friendship magic or is the fact that Fim is what makes it magic? *thinking emoji

>Only thing that comes remotely to mind in the chan world is the ongoing hiro vs jim drama and formers attempts to possibly corporatize 4chan
that movement sounds way softer than this. Receiving money for making it more company friendly? That drama wouldn´t come with any surprise left, much less these days.

>What is going on?
mostly I tried to post it yesterday >>3582. THQ did an AMA thread on 8chan and the mainstream media (internet press) have tons of articles (including ones from my country), repeating the same 4 things over and over about how controversial is when someone posts on website that is known for having CP. That´s like the most repetitive argument that you will find whenever you search it along with the Google ban. They think that 8chan is some kind of underworld or a close website to the (so scary for normies) Deep Web.

By doing this, they have exposed 8chan for the first time by getting lots of headlines as if they were talking about a /pol/itical phenomena. THQ got away with all this controversy, they have earned more fame by doing this marketing strategy....but so 8chan, which has turned into a mainstream imageboard (as if it didn´t reach that status before)

Now getting more into my view: what stands out the most is that there is a certain difference between the journalists and the comments. The users say that 8chan has little to no difference in terms of CP because they will ban you (which is true and don´t think that you can get with it on Endchan either. Any site would get shut down if they allowed it openly)

And that´s what I agree with them but I wonder if journalists are offended that THQ didn´t do an AMA in the usual sites for it (Reddit, Facebook...) and chose an alternative path for it or that they have short brains by not thinking that Tumblr, Youtube and the mainstream social media have also had CP. Should they ban those sites as well? We all know how well they solved it up on Tumblr...right?

So yeah, both parts have received a boost of popularity and a few people claim that 8chan /v/ has had AMA´s before from indie developers....

every little factor counts and I suppose that in the eras of rushed events and such, one would try to self celebrate little things that aren´t seen as victories. I suppose that those conditions would drive you to think so when in reality, they wouldn´t be as meaningful if you were having ordinary conditions.

As for your personal story, I am leaving it out for now because that part of your post touches more private things that one has to think about before giving random cheap thoughts. Those intimate zones give me lots of respect.

I would try to get all the info first and after that, see how you would do it. As for now, we are stable so there is no need to rush so you can either oscillate between an essential task or keep it on a secondary background. Whatever you plan or do, you have room for everything for now.

But yeah, having the backup before anything else happens would bring a little bit of relief. Anyway, in the end....

>I'd either continue /pone/ in some form some where or form my own golden oaks themed board.
you already answered to yourself

>I can see that be frustrating. Cute seaponies did't get the hype phase fully exploited to establish status but these cute super ponies are getting special treatment.
eeeyup, basically that. On the other hand, Tempest received the hype and the movie showed some hype. Not as much as one would desire but hey, she and the seaponies have had a good reception. What I feared the most (and was the most annoying part) was introducing the first images. The /mlp/ side isn´t certainly the most attracted one to new content and you have to introduce them subtly in order to convince them.

The movie has been a slow burner instead of a big hit but anyway, its status is better today than on its release (part of it at least)....and I cannot complain about that. There is enough content, they post them as if they weren´t exotic characters(this fandom works more with the usual and meme characters instead of characters that aren´t shown) and the pictures go on.

I guess you cannot get further from there.

whenever the site improves and the mods give you an answer (I have seen your replies by the way, very formally made). I would need also to adjust some settings out there. It´s a board that needs some sort of cleaning these days and tons of feedback.

>one's first reaction is to think you're a little nuts but when one stops to think random thoughts like this are natural, even if it feels wired to talk about.
most people would basically do that. I tend to make fun of it with a couple of friends who have also thought about that as well. Far from a crazy mind, more people have had worse thoughts than they are willing to admit. Some of the worst ones are those who don´t say a single thing about that.

>I reminds me of thinking about jumping off tall buildings in a non-suicide but just wondering what it be like.
the brain is curious. Pandora opened the box for a reason. /co/ and /b/ jumped onto this show to see what could happen next despite its girlishness in it. We are in general, curious about feeling or doing anything even if we know that those actions would lead to such consequences. Now, you could ask a trap question to this logic and it would be about how killing would feel like. Without even doing it IRL, just play the Russian Roulette game and you´ll see how interesting or fascinating it is when you shoot the bullet and the game is over and it closes the tab by itself. Purely one dimensional and there´s no room for going beyond that. There´s nothing else.

>It was interesting and in some cass quite toxic with all the attention some of those works got outside of the fandom and was an entry point for many.
that´s what happens when you want to throw edginess all the time, you end up repeating some of the mistakes like the Sonic fandom did. I find it really funny when the time keeps going, fans start getting more lax and less dramatic as the show goes on. From desiring epic action to slice of life petitions from the fanbase. No seriously, after delivering Twilight´s Kingdom and episodes that are relatively restless to the show, fans have turned over and look for other things that didn´t fit in the typical fanservice at first. I suppose the fanabse has checked that the show proves that is capable to deliver what they want so the petitions change for future wishlists.
How many people wanted to see AJ´s parents or a slice of life episode from the princesses? This fanbase did and if you take a look at the favorite episodes from season 7.....well, I don´t need to explain the rest.

>Those pics are quite nice and shows that being elaborate is just a noob mistake.
yep. In fact, your statement gets more strong when you stop and think that some of the greatest songs remembered or acclaimed are also pretty simple. Only by having 2-4 chords, they are capable to deliver amazing results and anybody can do that. Same for ponies. Derpy is a very well liked pony and she´s basic as hell.

So, there it goes.

>I can see the resplendence.

It is a less bleak version of what we used ta say about this place. Not much of a different impetus but swamp out most of the lonely and abandonment for a more subtle /confy/ and a haunting aura that has a mix of emotions that could be attached to it.

> you don´t have to go that far away or at least that´s what I imagine with pic related.
Nice pic. Here what I imagine, the cover art for the fic The Sun Whispers Your Name. I read this fic a long tim ago and don't remember the full details but they sadly didn't spent more than a chapter in this city travling inside Celestia's mind . I've ran into other fics that also had fantastical places like this and it always makes feel quite haunted.

>By doing this, they have exposed 8chan for the first time by getting lots of headlines as if they were talking about a /pol/itical phenomena. THQ got away with all this controversy, they have earned more fame by doing this marketing strategy....but so 8chan, which has turned into a mainstream imageboard (as if it didn´t reach that status before)
Wow. I read about it last night when ya first told me. That is the opening blow, comparable to 4chan when it started to appear on the news. Though 8chan did have a boost from it's qanon board (which sometimes had over 1000+ pph) it didn't seem to leak into the wider site beyound the top 20 as I recall the UIDs not increasing that much. (I have a few boards I visit there sporadically). Not sure how much of a spike they are having now considering weekend activity. Never seen Million Dollar Extreme that far up on top though.
also saw EQD trixie in /v/ and no one freak out at her appearance

>And that´s what I agree with them but I wonder if journalists are offended that THQ didn´t do an AMA in the usual sites for it (Reddit, Facebook...) and chose an alternative path for it or that they have short brains by not thinking that Tumblr, Youtube and the mainstream social media have also had CP.

I always try to be polite in such matters, though for some in the chan world I'd imagine it is a much of a turnoff for many as it could be a breath of fresh air.

I suppose so. Though I will say that I am not easily offended by things like that, so you don't have to worry on that front. I mean, truthfully, as I said, I"m not even a 100% sure how to present my experiences.

So, let´s dive into it:

>TBH I feel quite split on my life and how to view it and probably shouldn't have mentioned that little fact there, at least in that way.
honestly, I would take those existential thoughts into something more abstract and hidden in between the lines that you could write in a fic. What you (and I) have done is quite risky (in theory) and there are people that could take advantage of it but hey, it says a lot the fact that you are telling us this. I still repeat that this is risky as hell because you are telling it to some random anons that you don´t know who they are behind the screen , maybe there are ponies typing on these keyboards, I will leave it at that.... The only saving grace is that there are more common cases than one would believe but they don´t make it public.

>Basically I've been in a wide variety of situations and to fully explain it would require to go far into the personal.
either simplify it into a more ordinary situation or just don´t give that info if you don´t see yourself confident enough...which is pretty understandable and the most logical choice.

>Because victimhood and introversion are desired and reduced so much on the net as a way to be cool and gain social status, so it makes me a little aloof in such matters unless something comes up
basically, the natural reaction that one gets towards those teenagers that shitpost: "Lol I am depressed this week" and practice the ATTW skills just to have replies and more attention. Those who are actually fucked up...don´t show it as a sport very often.
They hide it and pretty well from the outside and those adjectives go beyond from the the stereotype built in the net. I cannot point out a single group for claiming any guilt for such bad image (probably emos in the 2000s but even then, there´s not an uniform sample for that) but most likely, those who cried the loudest surely damaged the image of such emotions/behavior, especially if they bring something negative.

As for being aloof on the topic, I....well, you can see my obsession on drawing the line of what´s edgy and what it isn´t. The stigma still applies even after a decade. For describing such thoughts, you would have to go further than 140 characters and sadly, it requires more effort out there to prove a genuine sign of it.

>I could present myself in such a light, and has I've had some very significant down points. It be dishonest to present it as just that though. Even if I could select experiences that I could give the impression of a poor kid who lived on the rough side of town (Drugs, gang violence, one guy tried to set my family's house on fire from the back alley, etc).
Well, that´s like selling and overexaggerating a past that you distort so you can reach more people and selling those drama bait events for getting more sympathy. A pretty common practice. That doesn´t work for me because it´s really hard to find genuine misery behind those stories. Life is fucked up but to an extent, it doesn´t go to a well without reaching the bottom as most people claim but it´s pretty easy to fall into that sense.

>And that little bit really paints a picture, but it ain't a full one (the drugs were usually tame, by my teens the gang violence had died down to the point where I hardly ever run into shady people in my neighborhood, and that setting house on fire was one incident, I'm not the only one who had to deal those crazy neighbors, I once spent awhile in the countryside away from town, etc).
when the explanations and backstories happen, then the conclusions change a lot. I have gone through that gang violence period without taking part, just being in the background, for a couple of years. About drugs, well I am pretty tired of musicians falling into them and have shown way worse symptoms than that (and exposed into the press) . Nothing extraordinary, especially when they got massively popular around the 70s (before even).

About the fire incident, if that guy caused a problem indifferently to you, then he could have perfectly set up that same situation to any other neighbor. In fact, it seems that one has only problems with problematic people when others also have to deal as you say with those people.

Lastly, about the escape to the countryside, I have met a contact that also did that during the night. Her mother was so worried that even the police was looking after him and he ran away for a few hours. Nowadays, that person is perfectly fine and has earned a pretty upbeat mood these latest years. That event happened because of tensions with the family. That subject gave up and showed those frustrations by doing running away to the outskirts.

>I will say that I am unsure how to characterize it all, and there is a lot of strange forces and situations that I would certainly say were probably not very comparable to others
if nobody was different and never had different circumstances, why bother if everyone was the same in the first place?

>but were too mundane to consider truly amazing or bad, just strange enough to raise questions in a way.
well, a brony praises this show for mundane lessons...maybe those little details are what make life special.

>I don't wanna join that social media game
well, you aren´t showing these thoughts with just 140 characters. That by itself detours from a very popular social site.
>so I won't raise any issues again unless something really relates to the topic or I drawn on some life experience for a fanfic
well, making your personal thoughts artistic is a pretty damn fine filter for describing those feelings. In fact, I would say that recontextualizing them and setting them up properly requires some effort behind the process. So yeah, that medium or basically any kind of art, filters those thoughts.

Now, my replies do not come from an expert on psychology, I am not studying that exactly. Just a random faggot who gives a few thoughts/observations about these lines.

It was both poorly worded and certain have mentioned that one detail with the water. It felt too much like a begging of attention. Perhaps I'm too sick of social media. I'm actually not fully against disusing such since those topics havw came up before... but I didn't like how it was worded with this one insistence of mine. Those other facts I mentioned were merely to show how someone often exaggerates there hardships/problems a little. Everything was true but it wasn't an intimate details that really worry me speaking about and only brought up as examples of striping context and compounding several insistences to form a narrative to sell.

>>3597
>Well, that´s like selling and overexaggerating a past that you distort so you can reach more people and selling those drama bait events for getting more sympathy. A pretty common practice.
Yep. It's what I'd say 80% of even minor media influencers do to a little bit nowadays (and a lot of normal people). It's something that I both detest and fear and never want to even be remotely associated with and or mistaken to be doing.

>I have gone through that gang violence period without taking part, just being in the background, for a couple of years.
Yep, samee never did. Closest thing was random gun fire once near the house and seeing people walk armed with boards and bats that I'd just hide from. I knew a few people who thought they were hot stuff for cussing and smoking weed... but overall I stayed away from even that low level idiocy.

>Lastly, about the escape to the countryside
Not even an escape in that way. My other grandparents died and we briefly moved into country property. I only mentioned that as an example of that there was some mobility/fluidity of things as opposed to always hurting, but I should've specified that.

>Her mother was so worried that even the police was looking after him and he ran away for a few hours. Nowadays, that person is perfectly fine and has earned a pretty upbeat mood these latest years.

Indeed. In fact I'd say I've had a few thoughts swirling in my head as of late for fic ideas that I think are drawing on stuff.

>About drugs, well I am pretty tired of musicians falling into them and have shown way worse symptoms than that (and exposed into the press) . Nothing extraordinary, especially when they got massively popular around the 70s (before even).
It becomes boring after a certain point, not saying that some of LSD inspired stuff isn't fanstastic but most of it was this cycle of addiction and depression and death depeding on the drug Speaking of the 1970s drug scene, Lynyrd Skynyrd had a song specifically about that point in about the state of things at that time in music and themselves . That's always haunted me a bit.

Yeah, he and his brothers were just wild kids. They'd do all kinds of stuff and where one of several neighbors that were a bit wild that I knew and not the ones that I worry bout moved away, along with several other families that cuasd most of the gang trouble in the neighborhood.

>I read this fic a long tim ago and don't remember the full details but they sadly didn't spent more than a chapter in this city travling inside Celestia's mind .
only one chapter of that part. Do you remember if there were more dramatic or happy moments before and after that part? Just curious about the writer´s dynamic with that story.

>I've ran into other fics that also had fantastical places like this and it always makes feel quite haunted.
the pic definitely looks like it. That building brings a strange feeling that the first thing that comes into your head is why it is located right there, in the middle of a blue field.
It doesn´t help much to avoid that strange feeling of comfort when Luna and Twilight are staring patiently at it.

>Not sure how much of a spike they are having now considering weekend activity.
honestly I haven´t cared all that much about the boards nor I have noticed how much it has increased. I simply reported it because of giving a warning sign and expose a clear example on how to become popular overnight. Sure it´s an isolated case but they have balanced it with the drama that the news have arisen pretty loudly during those two days).

>also saw EQD trixie in /v/ and no one freak out at her appearance
8 /b/ has traditionally had a pony thread every now and then and they were used to seeing it. It becomes really apparent that the mindset shown over there isn´t the same as the original root of it, which caused property damage.

It doesn´t surprise that they show between little to no reaction at all, much less when it´s reached a point to qualify it as "another" reaction image that you would expect.

>Have ya heard of th whole mattishatitis drama?
nope. The one I have heard was the controversy about those random videos about popular characters and brands doing all kinds of fetishes and weird stuff (including MLP). That content could be defined as Deviantart turned into a Youtube video (and not exactly its brightest side).

If that drama has come up around these last two years, then I have not noticed it until now.

I wanted to say that The True 56k Experience™ is gone, but turns out it isn't.

Also, that uncomfortable realisation that lists of favourite ponies are identifiable information.
Pulling some numbers out of my ass for some model, sharing top 2 ponies is unique enough to identify one person out of 1024. I'd say I underestimated by far, but I didn't put much thought beyond 3 seconds coming up with the numbers.

well, if you cannot find the explanation,one can leave it at that for now.

>I am not easily offended by things like that, so you don't have to worry on that front.
it´s not about getting offended. it´s more like a mindset that I have when I get into this private zone that I sense as sacred. As long as there isn´t anything extraordinarily wrong that I have to point out or the transmitter asks for it, I tend to listen to the story that I have no idea until it´s explained completely.
And even then,in other topics I jump onto them naturally and even anticipate the words that I am going to receive yet for this one, I am more reserved. Giving an external view without understanding at all the backstory feels like manipulating or influencing over the other, hence I have to think a little bit more whenever I have to give my view on that.


>The only reason I brought it up because that is my relation to such adversity and overcoming it and trying to note that my perspective is probably a bit strange from the average joe or Jose.

well, I am using .xyz (by incident) and it seems that it´s working as usual (2 hooves out of 3). Maybe they have fixed it now. There are like 8 boards left with a little bit of activity. I suppose ponies were meant to see the /end/ before their innocent eyes.

yeah, that´s what critics call "originality". Maye the path for trying to explore those thoughts is more interesting than the ending flag itself, who knows.

that´s true. Not so risky and one advantage you have is that people are lazy even for spying. If it doesn´t have a profile on those mainstream social media, then you are kind of dead in terms of digital identity (in social terms). Also, you are covered by a barrier of normie people who are exposing what they do 24/7 all the time.

>The only reason I made this post >>3557 was because of >>3547.
probably because of unexplained context that didn´t give the full story and also you were more or less hungry for posting after the maintenance period (I am implying this part).

>It felt too much like a begging of attention
well, definitely if you can live without water, then you are God under the skin of a MLP fan who shitposts in an alt chan.

>Perhaps I'm too sick of social media.
you tell me, I complained about them from the very beginning, not to mention that I deleted my Twitter account around 2016. One can complain about 4chan a lot but the posters that stay there also admit that there is no better place/alternative to go.

>but I didn't like how it was worded with this one insistence of mine.
well, you simply posted it trying to go into the middle ground, testing the waters and you ended up giving a clickbait? shitpost. I didn´t take it with much importance because I needed more info to judge. I simply posted about the interesting times topic until you mentioned the big part >>3577.

>Those other facts I mentioned were merely to show how someone often exaggerates there hardships/problems a little.
basically trying really hard to be a postmodern journalist or average user of Twitter. That happens when you have something to say yet the words kill all your intentions to reflect it properly. What you have said and fixed now.

>it wasn't an intimate details that really worry me speaking about and only brought up as examples of striping context and compounding several insistences to form a narrative to sell.
yeah, the middle point in order to give a sense of accessibility. It´s certainly genuine if done well. I have tried to do that as well and I am telling you that giving it more form with something else, makes it even easier to digest.

I suppose that the subtlety (maybe omission is the correct word) just didn´t fit that much for what you wanted to expose.

>It's something that I both detest and fear and never want to even be remotely associated with and or mistaken to be doing.
well, these days one has to adapt that strategy in order to draw attention these days......in order to become famous quickly and get some sort of attention out of one in a million. One gets bored of this and fed up because there are so many users trying yet they fail miserably. I kind of (even though I had to explain lots of things) did it with the first posts of my personal project and well, the thing I love the most is that those two fics exist.

One doesn´t earn fame nor sympathy so quickly. I suppose one gets it over time even though you aren´t in the best format to do that long term move.

So...it´s sadly kind of difficult to adapt an alternative path considering these common trends extended to the entire globe.

one thing I should add about that drama bait and middle truths that end up being fake and tricky. A very famous writer said: "In an era full of lies, truth is a revolutionary act". I´ll leave it at that.

>overall I stayed away from even that low level idiocy.
then you are unaffected and you most likely forgot about it as soon as you didn´t see them anymore. I know those feelings because I barely remember or even spend a neuron that I was there with those kind of people. I suppose those fuck ups make you immune to do wrong things in the future because you know how people would do it.

>I only mentioned that as an example of that there was some mobility/fluidity of things as opposed to always hurting
well, then you definitely worded this wrong. You were talking about a short period of move instead of an escape. Then, it´s pretty ordinary to feel kind of homesick and have mixed thoughts of those changes of place. If you combine that personal friction with psychological confusion, that can perfectly make you feel devastated.

>I have also have know stuff like this though it didn't always end happy of course

Anyway...

>that can be better to have something slowly spread than have a quick high and slow collapse lik som mny things nowadays.
considering the explosive nature from the things that rise like foam, I suppose that a stable increase over time is the "punk" thing to do these days.
There have memes that lasted for a month and suddenly, everyone forgot that they existed despite being popular. Same for the typical summer song.
As for MLP, that´s exactly happening to the kirins. They have had an October full of hype and such, but the content about them has slowed down incredibly. Unless it´s about Autumn Blaze, they have got much less presence in these last couple of months.

So yeah, you are right about letting things to grow slowly. and that´s how you can avoid the clickbait mentality as well because of staying loyal to what you post or think.

>blazechan certainly still is in beta.
I am waiting for some basic rules too. I don´t know how to establish them on the board and that freedom honestly overwhelms me.

>for some in the chan world I'd imagine it is a much of a turnoff for many as it could be a breath of fresh air.
mostly because it´s not planned at all. When you get to reply like this, guess what happens next.....the chance of getting a shitpost or prefabricated answer is much less likely despite the site you are in. Basically, an answer that you would expect from a forum or something. This is why I love /mlp/ and boards that happen to have that mix of fun and seriousness.

>meant to make a point about how elaborateness "doesn't" have to be a noob mistake always
there are always exceptions to the rule. Considering how simple ponies are with this artstyle, that challenge isn´t that easy to overcome.

>I can see a patter here with it and the seaponies that you also like.
I am implying that the pattern is about the flowing design (which would be logical considering that they share the same nature). Now, as much as I like them, I have never seen them as truly majestic (relatively speaking, they kind of enter there) unless we are talking about Novo (in her earlier stages) or Skystar reappearing in the movie. More like they are classy and clean in the sense that it simplifies certain aspects with an universal body structure.

Funnily enough, even though the designs have become more PKMN-esque (in the sense that they are more neutral and focus more on creatures that can appeal to all kinds of audience), seaponies didn´t give me that feeling(explicitly at least). The one species that assembles those characteristics are the changelings. Particularly Thorax at first. I may have mentioned it earlier but as soon as I saw him reformed for the first time,I paused the episode and I thought I was seeing the cousin of Xerneas or something.

Maybe these two pics make these impressions less ridiculous.

Dramatic I'd probably say. It's been a long while since I read it so I don't remember all the details. the city was supposed to be dated prehistory before equestria and it was back when Celestia and Luna were considered to be deities so there was a mythology theme with it. I don't remember what the ultimate reason why Celestia was sleeping though I loved the imagery in the earlier parts, though some of the later explations I remember making the world feel a bit colder to me than mysterious but I don't remember exactly what. Still I always loved the city regardless.

>It doesn´t help much to avoid that strange feeling of comfort when Luna and Twilight are staring patiently at it.
It's calming and haunting and almost a little creepy. Makes one feel like they are staring at something beautiful, yet holding a lot of secrets and makes the world feel mysterious. I've gotten lost in the pic so many times...

>8 /b/ has traditionally had a pony thread every now and then and they were used to seeing it. It becomes really apparent that the mindset shown over there isn´t the same as the original root of it, which caused property damage.
I remember seeing pony reaction images on one of the few times I took a glance at their /b/ and being surprised at the lack of freakout.

Actually somewhat similar category, though over the last couple of weeks. Relates to non explicit videos of children in swimsuits and such being shared and commented on by pedos . A yt channel called mattiswhatitis randomly had a vid go viral about this topic. Youtube randomly started deleted channels and shutting down comment sections in panic, though it was understandable it hit a lot of otherwise innocent channels (like ones relating to pokemon). If that wasn't enough to create a storm, matt started to have random livestreams about it and trying to really supporters to contact advertisers to pull content off YT until they got it fixed. Several have and it caused a lot of Yters to go after him, since they were pissed off of possibly having another "adpocalypse" (YT's last major controversy with unsavory content which led to a mass ad boycott, though that one was a much darker rabbit hole). Apparently it was found that matt had done some comedy skits in the past that were of a questionable invovling minors but not quite damming nature and that he may have lied about things (keep in mind that this info was found by keemstar, though I've seen more sober headed people saying that it appeared to be true) and that's the last I know. Yeah... just stupid YT stuff.

I can understand tbh. I'd have that fear too with some people. It's good to be careful, wise even I'd say, though I also say that the scared realm I tell anywhere online I fully understand are open to scurrility and mockery, and even being a bit more liberal with such places can be interesting as well. Thanks for the respect though a as I've said in the past, if ya ever need ta just vent or something I'd be all ears.

Exactly, though security through obscurity is ill advisable unless one remains obscure . But as for the threat model I have. A few allusions to sensitive personal topics sometimes mixed in with mlp contnet is not much for me to sweat over.

>well, you simply posted it trying to go into the middle ground, testing the waters and you ended up giving a clickbait? shitpost. I didn´t take it with much importance because I needed more info to judge. I simply posted about the interesting times topic until you mentioned the big part
I only posted it because it was the first thing in my head as a relation. The big part was when I realized how it sounded like I how I hated how I had worded it and thought it felt a little too much to allude to and the fact that it was such a social media thing to do.

> One can complain about 4chan a lot but the posters that stay there also admit that there is no better place/alternative to go.
Yep. Though their are topics that I would like to be discussed with more sincerity and such, I would take 4chan over the main social media sites anyday. Besides, I've got smaller alt chans and other rabbit holes Internet communities that you can go to fill out social media topics in a healthier atmosphere.

>So...it´s sadly kind of difficult to adapt an alternative path considering these common trends extended to the entire globe.
Indeed. Even on smaller sites you can find those to an extent. I have giving long thought on my long term net presence plans and it be a hard road to walk without joining up in at least some of the things in social media that I despise. Even if I avoid the larger sites if I took a name I'd be prone to end up getting caught up in some circlejerk or group with in group out group dynamics that could lead to stupid drama. And if I failed to pertispate by it's rules I could be shunned, unless I tried to really my own group around my displeasure of social media, which would just be a repeat of the problems with me at the helm. Not saying it would happen, but that it always would be a possibility, even with a small online presence.

>So yeah, you are right about letting things to grow slowly. and that´s how you can avoid the clickbait mentality as well because of staying loyal to what you post or think.
Few things that have hype usually are relevant more than a few years. I mean, one could name Star Wars as an example, or even this franchise considering how it exploded but still has a much larger than average core fandom. But most things that are popular are just that, trends. I'd rather slowly gain vitality and build to a point of larger cult following with a just under mainstream recognition (Touhou, independent animator Don Hertzfeldt for a more strange example) that is sustaining and growing over a hype bobble that pops.

no wonder it haunts the reader, considering that lore wise (back then), it was serious stuff that the show barely brought onto the table.

it looks like a strange wild city that contributes for a scenery like that. Eeeeyup, it seems that this is one of those pictures that offers more in terms of thinking about yourself and why they are there than the next chapter of that fic.

>Makes one feel like they are staring at something beautiful, yet holding a lot of secrets and makes the world feel mysterious. I've gotten lost in the pic so many times...
definitely. Also despite being a city, it makes you feel lonely for some reason.

>I took a glance at their /b/ and being surprised at the lack of freakout.
8chan knows the old news that came from the well known site and keep in mind that /mlp/ was already created before 8chan saw the light.MLP had aired for three entire years by that point.

>Relates to non explicit videos of children in swimsuits and such being shared and commented on by pedos
those ingredients usually lead to...
>pparently it was found that matt had done some comedy skits in the past that were of a questionable invovling minors but not quite damming nature and that he may have lied about things (keep in mind that this info was found by keemstar, though I've seen more sober headed people saying that it appeared to be true) and that's the last I know. Yeah... just stupid YT stuff.
basically Youtube problems and drama except for this part

>they were pissed off of possibly having another "adpocalypse" (YT's last major controversy with unsavory content which led to a mass ad boycott, though that one was a much darker rabbit hole

a friendly site they said. Out of shutting down channels and messing up with algorithms (which doesn´t surprise me at all), this aspect sure sounds more extraordinary. After reading this post, I´ve remembered that pedos use Youtube to trick minors and ask for little minors to do X stuff.

So yeah, maybe the wolf isn´t the one who the media tells you who in theory should be. Maybe the innocent sheep is the one who gives you the poisonous bite in the end.

>Thanks for the respect though a as I've said in the past, if ya ever need ta just vent or something I'd be all ears.
this is one of the reasons I don´t use mockery and I respect the privacy a little bit more. Those who prove that they are actually open minded and serious unironically....are the ones that one should take care.

By the way, I have vented a lot of things and talking and seeing propaganda everywhere just bores me to death at this point. I will get affected by it anyway but without an appetite for it, much less about getting offended (unless the people behind it are incompetent, that sure angers me more). It sells a lot and it gives you a topic to talk about but I´d rather talk about Filly Funtasia or whatever, mostly because of feeling tired about it.

>I've had a few thoughts swirling in my head as of late for fic ideas that I think are drawing on stuff.
that process is for sure the most mysterious and thrilling one that defines a story. Having visions about feels like you are watching a movie for you that isn´t even painted clearly. Somehow, when you get to write the story, it feels like you are cheating because you are wording what you see in your head.

>It becomes boring after a certain point, not saying that some of LSD inspired stuff isn't fanstastic but most of it was this cycle of addiction and depression and death depeding on the drug
basically, an artificial need of them in order to keep yourself active with the price of doubling the downturn that would come afterwards.
>Speaking of the 1970s drug scene, Lynyrd Skynyrd had a song specifically about that point in about the state of things at that time in music and themselves .
the 70s were a weird period actually, especially after the middle of that decade in which people complained about lots of things in terms of music consumption (disco, punk movement, no wave....and tons tons of f*yay* drugs that affected almost all the artists out there even ones like Nico or Bowie ).
It´s almost confusing, like that period was mostly dedicating their work to drugs and weird hallucinations that came in their heads. Sure, other decades were more explicit and more direct to that topic but not as much as the 70s in terms of dealing with them. I didn´t live them but in retrospective, young people were pretty encouraged to taste them for the sake to know what pleasure those substances offered to them.

as for the band, the record of that song in particular had released before they had the airplane crash that would change the spirit of the band forever

All in mind, it´s scary to think a little bit deeper. Sure one condemns one self about what he could have done for the best, but as for the worst case scenarios, one has to appreciate that one passed the test.

I suppose that´s a silent victory which nobody will remember.

>he and his brothers were just wild kids. They'd do all kinds of stuff
you tell me, there were a couple of brothers that were marginalized because they caused fear to all the school and they were gypsies of course.

and there are people defend Cozy´s intentions with the arguments of children not being intentionally evil...

>and where one of several neighbors that were a bit wild that I knew and not the ones that I worry bout moved away, along with several other families that cuasd most of the gang trouble in the neighborhood.
goddammit, what a mess. That sounds like it brought tensions around that period. Also it was the 70s, an era in which a recognized city like New York had pretty high crime rates around that time and the communication and entertainment wasn´t very present.

What you are telling me isn´t all that desirable honestly.

>security through obscurity is ill advisable unless one remains obscure
the risk exists obviously but it´s simply that you have a lesser chance to get noticed out there. Also, one would have to read entire paragraphs for a good while. Good luck if they spend time on reading these posts.

>A few allusions to sensitive personal topics sometimes mixed in with mlp contnet is not much for me to sweat over.
well, if there is something that I have learned from ponyposting is that they soften the discussion a lot, hence /mlpol/ still exists and found an unexpected dynamic with them. So yeah, there is always some kind of entertainment in between the lines.

>The big part was when I realized how it sounded like I how I hated how I had worded it and thought it felt a little too much to allude to and the fact that it was such a social media thing to do.
self criticism and fixing the problem one set up. I mean, social media´s method has been pretty successful at what they do. However, you are not willing to do that and that´s alright. If you are tired of social media, you know that you can use that method any day.

>I would take 4chan over the main social media sites anyday.
it´s the alternative social media these days, systematically speaking.

>I've got smaller alt chans and other rabbit holes Internet communities that you can go to fill out social media topics in a healthier atmosphere.
yeah, that´s why forums and imageboards exists. Also they show another side of the coin that people wouldn´t show up so often on social media.

However, I think social media have caught up pretty fast and are wilder and edgier reactions at a certain events (especially political ones) than you would get from these small places. In theory, one uses anonymity to express more anger and frustrations but what I have seen from certain accounts, they just blow out of the park the usual shitposts you see on 4chan, to the point where one gets to investigate them and could perfectly report it to the police.

And let me tell you, I have cringed and seen crazier people around there than the imageboards. Unless we talk about /b/,/pol/ or /tv/, political reactions beat the rest of the boards. I am setting myself fire to the public but in 4 years and a half that I´ve stayed in the community, I have not seen that edge or chaos here than on Twitter...in theory bronies are the cringy people. That´s true for the sexual/lewd jokes around random threads and certain autistic reactions that shitposters repeat again and again but most fans filter those emotions through art (ships, OCs, fetishes, etc), the show or fanfiction which is respectable.

As for the rest, even at their worst, the main sites I know from this fanbase are pretty mild in comparison.

That´s saying a lot and you won´t see me saying these words all the time.

every standard has been set pretty fast and it feels like we are moving at a really fast pace in general. This might explain why everything on the internet gets old after a short period of time.

>I have giving long thought on my long term net presence plans and it be a hard road to walk without joining up in at least some of the things in social media that I despise.
there is always something that you can learn or extract out of them. Don´t take them as the ultimate poison but analyze but it´s worth getting from there. In the end, you are the only one who decides to be selective with them.

>Even if I avoid the larger sites if I took a name I'd be prone to end up getting caught up in some circlejerk or group with in group out group dynamics that could lead to stupid drama.
well, but it´s kind of a private drama that only a few notice it. Unless it jumps onto the new (pretty difficult by the way), there are dramas happening everywhere. They may not happen on the street but instead, keyboards cannot catch a break these days.

>And if I failed to pertispate by it's rules I could be shunned, unless I tried to really my own group around my displeasure of social media, which would just be a repeat of the problems with me at the helm. Not saying it would happen, but that it always would be a possibility, even with a small online presence.
you will find out. Like you felt about Ponychan, you will discover where you see yourself comfortable or fit in without problems.

>I might as well set up a derpibooru account. Yeah, that's why I never linked one, because I have never bothered to...
do it. I have had one for 2 years and it serves me to click like and the fav buttons in order to ask for more content that I like. Instead of shitposting all the time on 4chan, I prefer creating a belief to those content creators that X type of content is well regarded and encourage them to keep going very subtly.

What I have described sounds masonic as hell and it certainly is but it works and what´s even more amazing, it´s that it becomes true after the quality content drops.

So yeah, go for it if you want.

>Few things that have hype usually are relevant more than a few years.
in the internet age, definitely.

>I mean, one could name Star Wars as an example, or even this franchise considering how it exploded but still has a much larger than average core fandom. But most things that are popular are just that, trends.
what´s even funnier is that MLP exploded in 2011 and after that, it has gained the unironic cult over time.

>I'd rather slowly gain vitality and build to a point of larger cult following with a just under mainstream recognition (Touhou, independent animator Don Hertzfeldt for a more strange example) that is sustaining and growing over a hype bobble that pops.
yeah, it´s definitely the most consistent method to thrive and those two examples are pretty on point to that statement. In fact, I have checked Don Hetzfeldt and he says:

<You never want to lie to your audience... you can trick them, you can disturb them, you can annoy them, but you can never lie to them. To me commercials are nothing but lies.
I like this guy.

>I guess we should start calling it PONYmon eh? I could say the same for a good bit of the deisgns now that I think about it.
yeah, we are talking about the most profitable franchise ever and one cannot deny the subtle influence it has had around the globe, especially now with the mobile app. I wonder what other designs are similar or recall you something out of MLP. I can imagine the OCs of IDW or the changeling but it´s harder for me to tell how other characters are similar.

>I'm looking at you kirin
I cannot match nor correlate their designs to any mon in particular. I suppose their designs come from taking the Twilight ponyta mode way too seriously and apply it for an entire race. I suppose the nirik mode would remind me of something but I don´t see it. Do you have in mind anything in particular?

I'm surprised how simplified it is in the public consciousness at times, at least from a US perspective. the 70s primarily remembered as Disco with the other notable music movements and art being not brought up much. I guess it was unlucky being in between the 60s with the war protest and the psychedelic scene and the 1980s with the full advent of music videos and mainstream recognition of techno and other later movements. I'm not saying it's all forgotten but I often see it reduced to just a disco aesthetic while even in more limited portrayal of 60s and 80s having a bit more nuance and least mishmashing several styles from the period together.

>even ones like Nico or Bowie
wouldn't be able to say much on nico but I know of the great white duke

>they had the airplane crash that would change the spirit of the band forever
Actually that is one of the reasons it haunts me but I wasn't sure if you'd know much or not and I didn't want to make my sentence long and awkward from being tired that day though in relation to the crash, freebird haunts me the most, don't know why

>you tell me, there were a couple of brothers that were marginalized because they caused fear to all the school
One pair of two brothers and a sister that I know was certainly marginalized from being more scary than simple teen stuff and they still scare me as adults but that's a different rabbit hole and it certainly hurt them all later in life. That's my closets thing relating to that anyway.

>and they were gypsies of course.
oof, that's a whole other layer of baggage.

>What you are telling me isn´t all that desirable honestly.
Yeah, I suppose it wasn't. But it's where I grow up. TBH, this is one of the reasons why I'm so split on how to describe things. I didn't reguard my area as the worst side of town and in some ways reguard my life as pretty sheltered yet whenever I've mentioned details I've had people be freaked out by some things I considered everyday occurrences or not bad
But I can get to that in another time, right now FiM final season is upon us.

Or the anti-social media, depending on how you look at it.

It's ironic, twitter, facebook, youtube and especially discord can have worse stuff going on than 4chan and our little corners of the net considering how it's portrayed in media.

> I am setting myself fire to the public but in 4 years and a half that I´ve stayed in the community, I have not seen that edge or chaos here than on Twitter...in theory bronies are the cringy people.

Well, as someone who has been in this fandom for nearly... 8 years. I have always wrestled with the question of our public perception. Sometimes we'd be seen as better or worse than furries, if not considered same thing, albeit with a bit more mainstream acceptance/curosity for awhile. We've had some pretty crindgy figures in the past and I still need to do some investigations how dominate some forces in the fandom are/were and there influence, but I think I might agree with you. At least for the latter half of the fandom's existence. That's food for thought for sure.

It seems like there is this split between a group that's trying to consume the newest stuff all the time ("meme culture", mainstream animation fandoms, movies, etc). And another side that is in the past and more fragmented (our fandom, most weeb websites outside some of the largest ones, various other niches that got there start before social media, etc).

> Don´t take them as the ultimate poison but analyze but it´s worth getting from there. In the end, you are the only one who decides to be selective with them.
Wise words right there.

>you will find out. Like you felt about Ponychan, you will discover where you see yourself comfortable or fit in without problems.
I suppose so. I'm just very distrustful, even with the smaller areas. I'm not really looking to be social as much as forging a few connections and fallout areas to get /confy/ when 2020 happens. if I find any places that are good I'll pass it on here

>What I have described sounds masonic as hell and it certainly is but it works and what´s even more amazing, it´s that it becomes true after the quality content drops.
Interaction is key. Sometimes there can be something with a half decent viewer base but no one would tell from there being no comments or feedback at all. I should know, I kept one MLP tumblr blog going for a year being almost the only one asking questions

>So yeah, go for it if you want.
Yeah, probably will once I get a few things settled.

>I like this guy.
Though I've never bothered to shell out cash yet to see his work and am not sure it's even my taste, I've always respected him for standing on such ground on his own and being truly independent and uninfluenced despite all nearly mainstream recognition he gets from the awards and the imitations of his style.

>I suppose the nirik mode would remind me of something but I don´t see it. Do you have in mind anything in particular?
Not anything in particular but a general sense with the more overdisgned look and nirik. Maybe it's just me but my first thought was pokemon when I saw them.

there are so many images related to ponies that one wonders where the actual root is which brings that haunting aspect. I suppose it was bound to happen that one would feel attached to the material that impacted you back in the day.

These stories are more valuable to a personal level than an universal one.

>that doesn't change the fact that most people live in the cities, good or bad...
about 70-80% of the population is bound to live in the cities but I suppose that most of the danger relies upon our decisions more than anything else.

>As long as it doesn't extent to walking on eggshells and limiting you discussion.
don´t worry. I can certainly have subtle ways to drive the discussion to the direction I want. Just because it has a formal touch doesn´t mean I always have fears of entering over that danger zone.

About the spoiler lines...yeah,it´s nice to hear that but one has to keep that over time, not just today. This is just like my take on birthdays, you don´t simply appreciate one person for one single day, you have to do it all the time in order to prove it.


>I wasn't sure if you'd know much or not and I didn't want to make my sentence long and awkward from being tired that day
nah don´t worry, I simply looked around the context of that song and after that, a little bit of info behind that record. It didn´t take me more than 2 minutes to notice that such event would happen almost immediately after its release.
>though in relation to the crash, freebird haunts me the most, don't know why
fair enough, I suppose that other fans would also theorize about its concept, not to mention that it´s way more popular so without checking any comments, I am sure more people would associate both things.


>I didn't reguard my area as the worst side of town and in some ways reguard my life as pretty sheltered yet whenever I've mentioned details I've had people be freaked out by some things I considered everyday occurrences or not bad
I imply that your neighborhood was basically a mid to low tier one that didn´t cause anything extraordinary in terms of crime but you couldn´t throw fireworks or feel completely safe either. The details that you describe would be placed in a grey zone that show the uncomfortable aspects of living in working zone, moving out and not feeling good either....

it could sound scary if those people got surprised easily or if you told your little stories with a good narrative, much more when you don´t show much to the outside.

>Only problem is which idea to follow sometimes.
eeeyup. Basically this.
>I'm surprised how simplified it is in the public consciousness at times, at least from a US perspective.
I know more about the musical phenomenons around Europe but there is some information I´ve gathered here and there about the US.

>the 70s primarily remembered as Disco with the other notable music movements and art being not brought up much.
the US had waaaaaay more than that. In fact, most of those artists had to go to the UK in order to thrive and get a chance to show their philosophy.

During the 70s, hip hop was getting the first popular sketches (there were a few aspects shown back in the 60s) and the first songs from the actual genre came around 1978 (I think?) because of the combination of funk and R&B.

Also, one seer of a band was Devo. They knew how to make new wave and show that weird look before any other band from the 80s. In fact, its most acclaimed record was released in 1978 and that´s because Bowie brought them to Europe.

Another big one,punk. Sure disco had its gems but that caused a reaction that didn´t satisfy the kids. Either you had easy listening pop like the Carpenters or you had really complex and sophisticated music like progressive rock. People were tired and that lead to events that you know better than me. But if it weren´t because of the provocative simple concerts from The Ramones,nor the Sex Pistols nor the Clash would have been created in the first place. That brought not only punk, but a very broad genre that was derivative and unique to each band around the late 70 and early 80s: post punk and derivative genres from it. That included from artists like DNA to a jangle pop band like REM. There is a pretty good post punk flowchart that shows how broad the scene was. That period between the late 70s and the early 80s was one of the most creative and effervescent eras of music one can imagine.

Also, the no wave genre. This one sure sounds underground as hell and the only popular thing that saw the light was the album that Brian Eno organized: New York No Wave compilation. Sure, those bands didn´t thrive and had to do more things in their lives but for sure one has heard about these two maximum exponents of that genre: Swans and Sonic Youth. You would have to wait until 1983 in order to get the first record from those bands.

>I guess it was unlucky being in between the 60s with the war protest and the psychedelic scene and the 1980s with the full advent of music videos and mainstream recognition of techno and other later movements.
yeah, the Cold War and the Detroit scene in which poor people would buy the same machine like Kraftwerk had and the city had nothing but sharing rhythms for hours and hours. That was their entertainment and the explosion happened around the late 80s, bringing techno to the mainstream in one year.

>I'm not saying it's all forgotten but I often see it reduced to just a disco aesthetic while even in more limited portrayal of 60s and 80s having a bit more nuance and least mishmashing several styles from the period together.
yeah but that´s the memory people want to make out of it or reduce it to that because of the information they are getting about it from a popular perspective.

>I know of the great white duke
eeeyup, he didn´t remember barely anything that he did in 1976 because of the hard substances.

>One pair of two brothers and a sister that I know was certainly marginalized from being more scary than simple teen stuff
if they stood out because of that, it´s no wonder one would get the events surrounding them quickly between gossips and whispers.

>that's a whole other layer of baggage.
definitely

>>3669
>At least of lower level adversaries that I'd worry about most of all.
for sure, they are going to get entertainment out of it anyway.

>Ponies make everything better.
you have no idea. Well you have but they offer much more than one would have expected.

>anti-social media, depending on how you look at it.
if you are in a big board, these sites fit into that term. If you are into constant circlejerks and in addition, in a community, then it doesn´t hold that meaning.

What I know is that its format hasn´t changed at all over the years and people still use them so there is a charm (besides anonymity) that social media don´t offer.

>twitter, facebook, youtube and especially discord can have worse stuff going on than 4chan and our little corners of the net considering how it's portrayed in media.
it feels like depending on the sites you look, you are living in a parallel reality. Facebook has created an industry among created lies that you are driven to check because of its algorithm, Twitter has mixed aspects depending on how you adjust the settings of your profile (and a lot of time at using the filters properly), youtube has a messed up system that benefits the copyright claimer than the content creator and discord....well, that site has harmed a lot and look how fucked up it is that /mlp/ rejects with disgust any link about it. That should make us think for a little bit.

Check how they reacted in the Dolores general: http://boards.4channel.org/mlp/thread/33621085

>8 years.
now, that´s loyalty at its finest.

>We've had some pretty crindgy figures in the past and I still need to do some investigations how dominate some forces in the fandom are/were and there influence
literally one of the reasons you created the /go/ thread, doing almost a meta journalistic work of it in hindsight.

>but I think I might agree with you. At least for the latter half of the fandom's existence. That's food for thought for sure.
I can only talk from experience with my bold comment and one would wonder why the fandom stopped creating cringy events after 3 or 4 years all of a sudden. Maybe that phenomenon happened because of the hiatus that lasted for one entire year and stopped the cool things that defined its explosive hype.

>It seems like there is this split between a group that's trying to consume the newest stuff all the time.
>And another side that is in the past and more fragmented
yeah, basically that spontaneous division that has been established gives a pretty well idea of how the dynamic on the internet works. I personally fit in the 2nd group. I have no idea what the hot memes are but for sure, I consume content of this franchise with patience. Maybe I will pass through a hot meme or two like Bowsette or something but for the most part, either I don´t care that much about them or I notice them after their hype ended.

>I'm just very distrustful, even with the smaller areas.
for very good reasons one has to keep that mindset all the time.

>I'm not really looking to be social as much as forging a few connections and fallout areas to get /confy/ when 2020 happens. if I find any places that are good I'll pass it on here
but keep in mind, using a social platform to communicate with other users is already a social act so despite not looking for the former aspect, it inherently comes by nature to a certain degree. However, I agree that finding one self comfortable at where one browses is important as well. The only problem with getting too comfy is that you get the news from the same site (Facebook) or try to see a partial truth. Not a problem for you fortunately.

>Interaction is key.Sometimes there can be something with a half decent viewer base but no one would tell from there being no comments or feedback at all.
I know but I, as for now, want to stay as a background user that judges from the second row. I have made a few comments on Derpi about certain images but when one image gets a little bit popular, comments start to arise from nowhere on DA or the same Derpibooru. Just that I prefer comparing the likes among the other works and I don´t see the need to comment all the time. If I do that, either I get too tired of saying something to very specific pictures or users start getting a little bit sick of the same old one commenting all the time.

Again, this is probably the only place that I have commented most of the things that should come out over there yet I don´t feel like sharing them in the main pillars of this fandom. I have those places in less than two clicks, I could perfectly do it at anytime


>I should know, I kept one MLP tumblr blog going for a year being almost the only one asking questions
that shows some dedication from your part but that also sounds awkward because you were the only one doing them


>I've always respected him for standing on such ground on his own and being truly independent and uninfluenced despite all nearly mainstream recognition he gets from the awards and the imitations of his style
if he has survived the test of fame, then he´s not going to change his views. It´s very unlikely he does that but I suppose that the internet fame allows you to be yourself (keeping your way of thinking) while also being popular at the same time.

>a general sense with the more overdisgned look and nirik. Maybe it's just me but my first thought was pokemon when I saw them.
well, yeah. Looking at that pic, the nirik seems to offer very similar patterns and characteristics that you can get from the Japanese franchise. If you faced one in a battle, pretty sure any player would take them as a monster with 4 moves.

>I won't call it the biggest thing in the world but it's much larger and a bit deeper than a surreal one off I'd thought it be.
well, who knows. Just try and we´ll see.
>Right now it's either 50% or 30% done depending on if I decide to include one sequence or not.

as Trixie would say:"It´s a working title".

Anyway, ideas happen spontaneously. One of the most well known Spanish writers from the 20th century said that he sat down many days for 5 hours in front of the typing machine just to have the proper ideas and write them right at the time they occurred around his head.

So yeah, it seems that nothing is clear for your prototype yet.

I didn't word this clearer as I was trying to make some metaphor relating to the large social networks and smaller websites being a virtual countryside... at least I think I was aiming for something like that. Mind is kinda fuzzy right now.

>This is just like my take on birthdays, you don´t simply appreciate one person for one single day, you have to do it all the time in order to prove it.

Not only that, it basically influenced the whole idea of what rough and edgy look/act were in the first place. I mean a lot of motifs, things and ideas are still taking and heavily remixing cues from it from hipsters to actual underground movements. Even if you could call a lot of it just aesthetic and imitation from that being the popular ideas of what the underground looks/acts like you still can't give that sort of multigenerational influence to most previous counter culture being still actively used unironically outside the generation.

> That period between the late 70s and the early 80s was one of the most creative and effervescent eras of music one can imagine.
This.

oof.

>if you are in a big board, these sites fit into that term. If you are into constant circlejerks and in addition, in a community, then it doesn´t hold that meaning.
I say it depends on the type of circle jerk and how much of it is based on IRL or interest but yeah a lot of chan ad like groups probably do fit that bill.

>What I know is that its format hasn´t changed at all over the years and people still use them so there is a charm (besides anonymity) that social media don´t offer.
I probably say it's a bunch of factors that keep it going. The contrarinism prevented it from just bleeding users to new technology. Curious users either from hearing the hushed whisper in the mainstream pretending we are the darkweb and secondary migrations from fandom or groups that have a large presence on imageboards (anime, though it be less in 2010s but still a factor, some corners tied to boards like Warharmer for /tg/, bronies, along with politics ,etc). Among a dozen smaller things that I could probably think up if I really focused on it.

>well, that site has harmed a lot and look how fucked up it is that /mlp/ rejects with disgust any link about it. That should make us think for a little bit.
Plenty have been hurt by Discord in a way that you can't blame migration from sites like reddit. Mass migration may make a place lose it's culture but ultimately still you'll have a bunch of fags who are still posting on the site and and even significant groupings that the imageboard becomes there primary website. Discord? It discourages posting to the board. Those who fall in will probably be on a bunch of Discord servers and rather than you having your own house, your now in a convenient yet constrained apartment with neighbors that could always move in and bring a bunch of stupid IRL drama. I can even think of a couple of /pone/ related websites where at least number 1 happened...

Basically me.

>The only problem with getting too comfy is that you get the news from the same site (Facebook) or try to see a partial truth. Not a problem for you fortunately.
Yeah... my problem is information overload from trying to keep track of to many things. Though you'd be surprised how useful it is to have a memory longer than 3 months in the current climate

>that shows some dedication from your part but that also sounds awkward because you were the only one doing them
Wasn't super awkward. It was an ask and RP blog that was primarily text updates and I was just commenting as an anon. I wasn't the only anon either, but I was the only user posting recurrently. The reason why I did it was because it was an Ask and RP blog loosely affiliated with several others that were of a Mentally Advanced Series theme not the biggest fan of MAS either I was shocked when exploring around to see it still trying to be active and took pity on it. It stopped updating awhile ago and I think it was a victim of the Tumblr purge because I the link was dead last I checked.
