Also, I like Twilight Sparkle because her voice actor is Princess Clara.

If you pay close attention to the start here you can see two half second clips of My Little Pony. Possibly Season 2 teaser?

Also Timmy Turner from Fairly Odd Parents, and Bubbles from Power Puff Girls <3
She has so many good characters behind her.

So, you sure MLP isn't going to change. Perhaps be 20% cooler or something?

There's already enough Rainbow Dash for the coolness factor.

They might give little shout outs here and there, but the word directly from the creators themselves is that they're not turning it into a show that directly panders to its older internet audience. As it should be.

Just think about it, we love the show AS IT CURRENTLY IS. Do you really think changing it is going to make it better? When something is so close to being perfect as it is, trying to make it more so will only result in its own demise, the same can be said for EVERY show that has EVER tried that. All shows begin to fail when they start trying to make them "cooler".

Really, if Hasbro can pull it off then it would be great. But the chances of trying to change it and not ruin it is so low that I don't think any fan would criticize them for not throwing it into the fire to test it.

The fans make it 20% cooler with our fanart fanfiction videos music games etc. that is how we all enjoy it. The show itself isn't meant to do that as the show is perfectly fine as it is. The last thing I want to see is ruining the show for the sake of trying to approach a market that loves it currently and deals with the missing material themselves. Anyone who does want more from the show goes and gets more from the show, thats why theres so many internet sites for it.

I want to avoid going into a little rant over this, but really the show is perfect as it is, show more Luna things like that is the stuff to improve on, not trying to alter the show to be something completely different.

So i just scanned through out the entire thread and found no mention of Equestria Daily. Usually I'm really not the sort of person to promote fan-art, fan-fic, or fan-made content in general, but hot jumping christ, this site has an ass-load of quality content that really shows how talented (and quiet frankly, obsessed) the fanbase is.

Well, some people may still like any other mlp content (like toys, fanart, fanfics, etc.) but just dont like the second season. I still believe with that one person though that the fanbase would slowly disintigrate.

Havent heard of this, whats meant to be going on?
To be honest, Hasbro blatantly know of the youtube videos including the episodes themselves that are all up, a single search brings them up instantly. But Hasbro seem to realize that many fans can't watch it by other means and since theres no DVDs yet and they have such a large paying fanbase for their stuff they likely realize that shutting down videos wont be good for anyone. Sadly more companies need to realize this also.

Everything dies over time, and sadly MLP is no exception to that. So if the 2nd series was bad then people would still be loving the first series, which would eventually over the years start to loose it's appeal as everything is done lots of times and no new content is out for it. Some people who do love the show will still cling on to it forever, like fans of all shows that have ended do, but as a whole there would slowly become less fans until it became a cult classic show, the same as Red Dwarf etc which keep their fans but don't really gain more.

I am going to be one of those that clings to it forever, like I'm guessing many bronies would as well. Even without new content the characters are so loveable and the show is so sweet and the music and art and fiction etc is still good, so even when its old and worn down I can't see a reason not to lvoe it.

I would likely stop making fanfiction as much if it died down, and might eventually completely stop with it, and people would do less fanart and eventually none etc. But the show itself as long as the memories of it exist and the DVDs and internet forms of it exist will be loved for decades to come. Countless no longer airing shows still have huge fanbases afterall. So theres really no reason for this not to.

Pretty agreeable, if you don't like it then no need to post about it. No one is being asked or forced to post here.
