Yes, you know the guy originally said "no flaming or picture spamming" etc. We keep up our side, sadly others dont. And people still think we are the problem sigh. It's good to have a good discussion about it, sadly many don't seem to understand it.

That is means for a tl;dr, BUT... being that we are talking about MLP, i just had to read it all. You make a ton of good points in there. Now... All we can hope for is that others will take a bit of time to read that thing and realize MLP isn't just for little girls. But... i suppose trolls will be trolls.

Also... kudos to you for it.

C&C is obviously a better location for bronies. General kiddies see a thread not aimed towards them and automatically, as if by instinct, think 'OH BOY +1 LOL'

I agree, usually I stay clear of large posts but went and read it all, and agree with it.

This has been attempted, it was locked because the stupid mods here think its still only a meme.

Liking a show is a meme how? The moderators sure used some crazy troll logic there.

And its been like 10 months since the first episode was released anyway, so I fail to see how an audience of a fad or a meme would keep liking it so much for so long, considering how fast most fads and memes are born and then become old.

To get the support of the greater community, tell them that if we have a Brony club, we will stop posting any and all MLP threads in the General. That should put a smile on their faces.

Oh well, Tox, go convince the shitton of mods to not lock pony threadsn NAO.
Pleaaaaaaaaseeeeeee?

I have actually suggested locks to mods myself I will admit on some threads. When they end up just getting completely out of hand all that ends up happening is more fuel for the fire. Sadly they don't ban people enough for just picking fights, they do that in video game forum now don't see the problem with doing it on here.
I am up for pony talks as much as the next guy, but I don't like it when they just escalate out to the point where no one from either side can get anything out of it.

as a fact.. we would need to lay down general guidelines and because this would be far from a single person thinking for the group, id like to call the bronies of ng to think of way to get this done.. it would be their club to.. and im sure there would need to be a solid line between the haters that ARE going to start threads about mlp, and the REAL bronies of ng..
we would need to show that we are one and we believe in the idea of the show..

I watched the first episode, and I found it too boring to watch any more. I didn't see any characters that I liked or even found appealing or interesting, apart from the evil moon pony.

I noticed that there were no male ponies though, which led me to this theory. The baby dragon, when it grows up, fucks all the ponies, and that's why they have wings and horns.

But that doesnt make haters stop making hate threads, and that is what the mods hate.

Well then we just need to simply state to all bronies to steer clear of any such threads. As Rag's sig states, "Haters Gunna Hate." The best way to prevent flamewars from spreading is to just ignore them. Just like we have mostly been doing in THIS thread! I haven't seen a post about someone trying to shove MLP down the "Douchebag's" throats. If we can just keep doing this on a wider scale, then i think the mods MIGHT think about letting us have a club...

Hm... i can see why one might think that. Well either way, we have to just find some way that we can say that we want to appeal to the general public. The general public of NGers do not like seeing MLP threads. So maybe... Saying that we would be keeping a little bit of clutter out of the General by having a Brony club? I dunno. That's my thoughts on it.

I agree, why isn't that club locked with a message saying "Go to the Drama club" or something?

Considering we can't make a club about a cartoon, while you end up with clubs for Lost and Doctor Who etc.

The first 2 part episode is only good to start on if you have an open mind already. If you can't enjoy that to start with watch an episode like Dragonshy or Bridle Gossip first. It's a common mistake that sadly lots of people repeat as they never LISTEN to us when we post saying what episodes to try first.

I noticed that there were no male ponies though, which led me to this theory. The baby dragon, when it grows up, fucks all the ponies, and that's why they have wings and horns.

There are male ponies, just not as many. There are lots of background ponies that are male. Also you clearly missed Big Macintosh of the first episode, he is a guy.

id think the problem is, is that when you have something like that it would need a mod to check on it everyone in a while and as it stands no mods that are not directly in our face and shutting down out real threads.. are willing to go through hundreds of posts about ponies.. and love and sharing and caring and understanding..

I barely ever mention it outside of my friends and on here and other ideal sites where make clubs etc. So infact we end up being less "edgy and different" as we end up being around others similar to us, destroying this difference factor.

Do it, try to explain our motives as clearly as posible, and try to remark the pros about making a Brony Club/Crew

I think they don't want to do it because it might attact a lot of activity from /b/ and stuff.

Also mention how many known users there are that would love to have this club, theres many more than 10 of us I don't know the number but even that is more than many crews have. So with that many people who would love it and the benefits of the club etc, it should be enough to validate a crew.

It won't for a few reasons. 1) It's not /b/ that cares about it. 2) meme spamming isn't what the group would be about, 3) They will stick to sites like ponychan.

As Newgrounds users who love this forum, we of course want to be able to stay ion this forum to talk about stuff rather than force ourselves onto other forums just due to it not being accepted here. I don't think you grasp how annoying that gets to not be allowed to talk about something you like openly.

I don't know really. But this.
