I PM'ed Malachy about permission to make a Club or Crew for MLP and his response was this...
So we should either post in the Cartoon Club or here.
Nope, basicly Mods are being ignorant and selfish and really don't care about the fact people actually like the show. All they seem to think is that it will be a meme storm. Which is frankly pathetic for someone who is meant to moderate.
Also no, we can't go to club and crews, as a lot of people in that club don't like us talking about ponies, I've tried that place, many people do like ponies, but also many people don't. Posting something in a club that quite clearly shouldnt be there as it annoys others who like the club is surely what moderators should be AGAINST, not for. But again, they are clearly lacking in their duty there as they just can't be bothered. It's a sad thing when that is their response to everything. Make more people annoyed.

There is no other choice. The only way would be to cut down on the picture spamming and even that is questionable since that rule will be quickly broken and moderators don't feel like wasting time cleaning it up.
Correction they can't be arsed to moderate correctly. As far as they see it its just something to remove and be done with rather than anything to learn to tolerate. Again it is very sad that is how club and crews is now moderated.

Again, people seem to be blatantly unaware ponychan exists and just go with 4chan as they can't be arsed to do a little bit of research. Also added to this, I don't want to have to use another website to talk about what I like if others dont need to for what THEY like.

You know what I've noticed? Most of the people that identify themselves as bronies have either ponies in their sig, or as their sig. What's up with that? It seems that although the term "brony" is often used lightly, even by the community, it means a lot more to many people in their subconscious mind. There are few bronies that have anything else is their sig other than ponies. Does this mean average people lost interest in all of their other hobbies, or did the pony phenomena just take priority?
I like how most bronies have a pony in their signature, it helps make it easier to spot people with that similar interest to me which makes me pay more attention to their post and check them out. It also shows that person is nice and willing to accept friendship of others and is a tolerant person. Basically its the sign of someone I would like to talk to.
Now, I will make a conclusion in which you may agree or may not agree. By becoming a brony, that becomes the single most important part of your entertainment life. You subconsciously prefer things with ponies in them than to things without. Because of this, when you have a choice of whether or not to add ponies into something, you gravitate to adding ponies because your subconscious is telling you so.
I have the option of adding Sonic to anything as I enjoy ASOTH, which I commonly do to threads which is overlooked since it isn't ponies. I also have the option of adding pictures of guys cuddling and kissing from Yaoi, which again is overlooked since it's not ponies. I play games that you kill people I talk about,in which is overlooked as it isn't ponies. I watch dramas I talk about, which are overlooked as it isn't ponies.
This is a form of addiction. It's like a hard drug that not many people that try it like it, but when they like it, the hammer comes down heavy. It's time for rehabilitation, guys, and the only way to cure this addiction, is to force yourself to be entertained by things that do not have ponies in them. I know it might be tough, because you've relied on ponies for laughs for so long, but you need to stop before it kills a part of you. You need to stop before you become apathetic to all things without ponies.
It might shock you but I don't watch ponies 24/7, in fact many days all the pony I see is my desktop picture and the ones in my profiles, and whatever hate thread is suddenly flying around. Again the fact we do other stuff is completely overlooked on the basis it isn't ponies so people ignore it until it is ponies then say "ah see ponies told you".
Oh and about merchandise, funny thing is there is a lack of merchandise for this show compared to what you would expect from a my little pony show. Yes there are toys and cuddly toys etc which I personally would like to get, but there aren't as many as you would originally think. You just have to come to the realization that the show really wasn't made just to get money from toys. It actually was made for the characters and entertainment and friendship etc as well unlike quite a lot of shows out there.
Personally I have tried looking, locally there isn't a single pony sold in nearby towns. Looked online theres the basic MLP toys and thats about it, hell even the shirts are all or almost all fan made. When the merchandise you find is fan-made as they don't officially make it themselves, that's when you know they really aren't just doing it to get money from people.
