They are? When was that confirmed? Can I have a source?
This is not a source that was me fantasizing out loud.
But that would be awesome!

Way to take two days to reply to a topic of great importance like that.

Not at all, just something fun to do and hang up on my wall afterwards.

In that case, I say something involving Fluttershy and Luna, because it's Fluttershy and Luna. :3

Maybe do something involving newgrounds? like tankponies, or something?

Random fact: When Scootaloo says "Mommy" in that vid, she originally was gonna say "big sister', as seen in the EFNW preview.

Oh, and we are now in charge of Equestria Daily, and ANYTHING goes.

Hey bronies, I come in peace! I was just wondering a few things:

1. What makes MLP:FIP so appealing?

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

Just curious, thanks.

Hello there. Welcome to our little group.

1. What makes MLP:FIP so appealing?

Well, it appeals for different reasons, and I am sure each person has a different reason for liking the show. Personally I find the show enjoyable simply for its light humor, wonderful animation, and character development as the series progresses. While there are still elements that make it girly, as it was not really intended for us, it manages to mix in a little spice that would entertain the bronies as well.

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

My personal favorite part of the series would have to be the characters. While each character seems to represent a rather stale stereotype, they do so in a fashion that makes them likable and funny at times. Each character has their own personality quirks, bad time and good times, and ups and downs. It is this humanizing of each of the characters that makes them so familiar and lovable.

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

I believe that the older teenagers started latching onto the show originally as a joke, as is obvious. Through time, and duration watching they show they began to appreciate the finer points of it, noticing the quirky moments, silly personalities, and interesting cliff hanger (sometimes literally) moments. It is like going on a little adventure, I suppose. It renews your sense of childhood.

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

The internet is a living hate machine. They see one particular group of people as a close-minded definition of abnormal, and point them out with hate and ridicule so they feel they will fit in with their peers. I understand that some people are incapable of liking the show, but really there isn't a way to hate it.

Just curious, thanks.

Not at all boy!

At 9/13/12 09:45 PM, wreckr wrote: 1. What makes MLP:FIP so appealing?

I don't know what makes it appealing to others, but I can tell you why it appeals to me. I have grown up liking animation for as long as I can remember. I was one of the weird kids who would read the opening credits to Looney Tunes show. So I have always had a strong appreciation for animation and I still do.

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

When I heard about the show I passed it by, not because it was a girly show I watched different girly shows all the time, mainly because I grew up with a sister. I remember watching The Powerpuff Girls and enjoying it due to its story, animation, and characters. There is a lot I love about this show, but what I like most is the dedication to it. The animators and writers working on this could have just made something forgettable to sell toys with like the past incarnations of My Little Pony have done, but they decided to actually make something.

Each character in the show does have their stereotypes to them, but at the same time they also have personalities to go with them that change as they change. There is character development here and it is really well done. The stories are your fair share of morals, it is a moral show much like Fat Albert, Captain Planet, and others. However instead of coming off in a corny way it plays the route of a show like Hey Arnold. You can guess what the moral is pretty easily, but the journey to that moral is where the fun comes in.

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

I wouldn't call it a bandwagon. I have seen bandwagons, where people will just hop in and go. It is not a bandwagon in any sort of imagination. I guess there is some connection with what kids grew up with in the 80's and 90's cartoons. There is a good bit of inspiration from Looney Tunes, especially in Pinkie Pie. They used the wabbit season - duck season joke with her already, however her skip hop is taken directly from Pepe LePew. It's like a return to form in a new skin which does come off very creatively.

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

There is a bandwagon in that aspect of haters. People who just blindly hate something without watching it. However this hatred isn't towards the show, but towards the fans... in which case a lot of fans don't really help out in this. To be honest I am a bit disappointed in a lot of the fans of this show because they tend not to have any self-control or are really using the show as a tool to troll others which isn't right. However ones who blindly hate without giving the show a chance, that shows ignorance and it is true no matter what show it is.

Some people don't like the show because it is annoying, which I don't see how it is annoying, I can sympathize. A lot of people found Steve Urkel annoying and some people even found Doug Funnie to be annoying as well. However they don't hate the fans of the show, it's a more power to you thing.

The Great And Powerful Trixie shall take time out to provide answers in her break.

1. What makes MLP:FIP so appealing?

Trixie loves all her little admirers, how they all group up to watch her awe inspiring feats of magic! Ah, yes. Trixie finds her show very appealing.

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

The Great And Powerful Trixie! Of course, she also enjoys besting Twilight Sparkle.

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

Trixie's show is for ponies of all ages, be they foals or grown stallions. All worship and adore Trixie's power!

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

Many critics attempt to spread bad word about Trixie and her fanbase, of course such words are outrageous and wrong! They simply cannot accept the fact they are inferior to the most powerful unicorn in all of Equestria!

Just curious, thanks.

Curiosity is good, Trixie loves to let it grow as she performs her remarkable tricks!

That's funny because those are my two favorite ponies, of course they'll be on there. :)

Probably... not, mostly going to print off a couple of color images then just make the rest of the collage revolve around cut out images from magazines. Have a couple sitting around, may as well get some use out of them.

There is a lot of things about the show that appeal to me. I mostly enjoy the voices and animation.

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

How characters interact with each other, how one can relate to one of the characters also helps to draw in the audience. Also, having a few favorite ponies is nice.

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

Well... it is a show meant for families to be able to enjoy meaning there was NO age limit originally. It feels more like the fact that it is on the HUB, and the fact the commercials seem to be more on the childish side may have been the combo that ended up striking many people that the show is for a younger audience.

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

Some bronies enjoy shoving it into everyone's face they like this or that about MLP:FIM (and while there are few I have seen who show this attitude) and for some magical reason the minority is shown to be the majority when they are not. Also what Sectus stated is rather noteworthy on why people hate some of the fandom.

Just curious, thanks.

No problem.

Ask it to me.

1. What makes MLP:FIP so appealing?

I guess it's just pretty adorable and fun. I don't know what you guys are smoking if you like the apparent 'character development'.

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

THE ADORABLE CHARACTERS! ^_^

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

Because everyone wants to be cool and that's not cool. That's just fucking insipid. :I

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

Well, there are a number of reasons, but I'll just tell you three:
1. Some of the Bronies always talk about their love for the show even when it's irrelevant. For example, I saw a comment talking about MLP on a video that was a Scooby-Doo parody.
2. Some Bronies are amazingly prideful. They always talk about how the fandom is 'THE BEST FANDOM OF ALL TIME' and talk about how much art and shit the fandom has accumulated. Hell, I remember one guy saying that '0.8% of Bronies clop to MLP rule 34'. That's just depressing if you actually believe that. :c
3. Brony hatred bandwagon. It speaks for itself.

Just curious, thanks.

No, thank you. :<>

I'll be basic.

First, this is just a show, everyone who likes it has a different reason for doing so, for me personally, I enjoy the relaxed, lighthearted humor, the characters are also alright, but lately I feel the writers have been becoming lazy. another thing that initially drew me to the show was the animation quality, and the art style.

second let me say that as with all shows this one has it's share of people who take shit too far, and get too into it. these people include, but are not limited to people who DO spam ponies, people who do shove their "bronyism" down everyone's throat, people that are annoying about what shows they like, and people who turn a simple cartoon into some idealistic life philosophy. Saying this, there are "haters" who are justified, but this doesn't mean that there aren't any haters who, just like some "bronies" take things too far.

Over all, I would just like to say that this is just a television show, a 22 minute piece of animation made for the purpose of entertainment, and advertising, and that most of the people in this club aren't the type that take shit too far.

I just recently heard the interviews that Everfree Radio did with the VA's for FiM. I must say, I was mildly impressed by the amount of detail they went into with Tabitha St. Germaine. You tend to forget from time to time that they are not really anything like their characters in the show are portrayed.

It is nice to hear from Tara Strong though. It makes her seem more human, and less of a troll. Anyway, I just subscribed to Everfree Radio, and hopefully I will hear more from them.

I like the innocence of it. It's just happy and care free. Of course, everyone has different reasons to find it appealing, so I can't TOTALLY answer this question.


2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

Daring Do


3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

For the same reasons they like it.


4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

Because people need something to hate. They can't accept that someone likes something different, So they'll hunt us, because we can take it... Because, we're not a fad, we're a group of friends, we are a community...

We are a Dark Knight reference.

Well, basically it is an RPG type adventure game of FiM where you take the place of a newcomer to Ponyville. It has 50+ characters in it, including the mane 6, and all the villains and princesses. From what I understand it is nearly finished.

I think this video should give you a good idea of the basics of it:

Lol, I feel like it's one of those things where you moderate it for one day and then you immediately forget about it after a few days. Sort of like "Ponygrounds".
