I don't see the problem with this, people have sigs that reflect their interests all the time, infact most sigs do this, not all of them, but the vast majority do. MLP shouldn't be any different
post pictures from it,
I have not posted one picture from MLP on NG. I honestly haven't even seen much spamming of MLP on this site, to be honest. I will agree though that picture spamming can be annoying, but that's with anything, whether it's MLP or not shouldn't matter.
and just talk about it nonstop.
I only talk about it when someone brings it up, or with people who also enjoy the show. I don't agree with shoving interests in peoples faces. I can see why someone would be fucking annoyed if some guy wouldn't shut the fuck up about something he liked, in this case, ponies. Sadly, a decent chunk of the fandom seems to feel as if they need to talk about it all of the time, and that they need to "convert" people. It's just a show for Christ's sake.
People can like a show, but why does everyone feel the need to flaunt their love for this one?
Again, I don't do this, I just show appreciation for something I like. In regards to other fans, it's simply because for some reason they feel that way, I can't really explain it. However I CAN say these particular people would probably flaunt over anything they like, not just MLP
Also because it seems ridiculous that anyone who isn't my 8 year old sister would like it... and she doesn't even like it anymore.
If you like cartoons, I don't see why you wouldn't like Friendship is Magic. It has great characters, voice acting, animation, humor, and is generally enjoyable to watch despite it's target audience and purpose.
She watched it when she was 5 and now she probably thinks it's stupid.
Friendship is Magic (Generation 4 MLP) is vastly different from the previous generations.
It's not a show made for people our age or even our gender and if people really enjoy it, they are very... unique people.
Why, because they like something out of their target demographic?
I decided to watch some of it because of this shit floating around and it was just like all the other stupid tv shows made for children that I've seen. Why doesn't anyone that likes MLP like any other shows like it?
Like what shows? I particularly like cartoons like Spongebob, Flapjack, Chowder, and Adventure time.
I also like loads of different media too, mind you.
There also aren't any clubs for tv shows on here that I have seen. TV show threads are usually just a thread in the General forum.
Doctor Who crew is a good example.
It is a meme. I don't believe the people who say they enjoy it. Especially when they have a sig with ponies and another meme in it. "Haters Gonna Hate". It was also primarily spread on 4chan.
I legitimately enjoy the show for the reasons I stated above, it tends to brighten my day, and yes I'm completely serious when I saw I like My Little Pony: Friendship is magic.
That said, I don't feel the need to really tell everyone about it... but It's really not that far fetched to like something aimed out of your target demographic.
