Conal's face, pokemon icons, furry icons (including Tom, hilariously) and MLP icons were all fair game.

Pretty much what happened. There was a bug that allowed users to upload icons as other users. Bug was patched by liljim within 5 minutes of being made aware of it.

Awh yeah, still got weekly Brony meet-ups to go to IRL. We're renting out the bookstore again, there should be over 50 or so of us for the season finale.

Looks like it's confirmed that we'll be seeing Sunset Shimmer again.

Well, in the Rainbow Rocks movie at least...

Alright folks, it looks like things are winding down, as there's only 3 episodes left of season 4.

I have noticed since at least the start of season 3 a big enthusiasm gap inside the community. As if the "fad" has died down. I don't see as much new stuff being created by bronies around youtube as I once did around 2011 and 2012.

This has probably already been discussed now that I think about it, but what would you attribute this recent apathy to? I think it has to do with the decision to go with 13 episodes for season 3 rather than 26 to help allocate resourcecs to the Equestria Girls movie, and simply that the fandom has lost steam over the years/

What do you guys think, or am I way off here?

You have to realize that this did start off as a fad. From 4chan memes to people watching the show and enjoying it based on its merits. Season 3 probably had something to do with the lost interest. I don't think it was that much since fans were really disappointed about Season 3 and were looking forward to Season 4 which has some love. Those who started to follow it based on a fad have moved on.

To be honest I don't know what the problem was with Season 3 to be honest. It had some misses here and there, but overall it was a good season. albeit a bit short.

I haven't really noticed a huge decline. Then again maybe I'm just a frog in slowly simmering water. The fandom had always generated plenty of clop material for me so I've never been lacking any sort of activity from the community :D

Then again... it's probably all the C&D orders hasNOTBRO's been issuing.

The fandom looks fine to me. Even my city of Bristol (UK) is hosting weekly meets of roughly 8 people and has upcoming monthly meets which are always over 50 attendees.

I just realized after this weekend's episode we'll have only 1 left. And yes, I know it's a 2-parter, but I still count it as a single episode.

The episode was pretty good. Those magic disabling gates are a neat concept as well.

Also, the preview for the finale during the commercial breaks makes me think the villain is in fact Tirak from the Gen 1 pilot.

This was a really nice episode. Spike is adorable. Next Saturday is the finale, I'll be watching it live on a projected screen in a bookstore full of over 50 Bronies.

This is going to be awesome.

Personally, I was kinda disappointed with this episode. We've had a handful of episodes centered around the preparation of the Equestrian Games. All that build up and this is what we get?

[SPOILER ALERT]
.
.
.
.
We get an episode about Spike dealing with stage fright? I'm pretty sure we've had this scenario played to death with Fluttershy and at least one time with Rainbow Dash. The Games were quite overshadowed by Spike of all characters. The epic maneuver towards the end kinda helped compensate for it, but overall I felt let down that this is all we get for such a huge event.

I agree that the magic neutralization gate was an interesting concept. Come at me unicornfags.
[/spoilers]

I'll have to catch the season finale a month after it comes out. I leave to train at a desert for about 4 weeks with my unit next week. Buck my life :c

Just checked the cable guide to see if they had a summary for the finale yet and it looks like the HUB is gonna be airing all the key episodes back-to-back leading up to the finale.

I agree. Everything was appropriately proportioned, from real emotions, humour, relating to friendship and excitement for season continuation. It was indeed the best finale ever. I really like how Discord is still considered a friend and such.

I thought Twilight's castle would be a renovated and redecorated rendering of Luna & Celestia's old castle, but this is even better. I watched it in a rented out book-store on a projected screen, with about 50 Bronies. Everyone is so awesome there, some crazy things happened too in public. I cringed a little, but it was all good fun.

Bronies are awesome.

It was really good. Seeing MLP go DBZ was awesome. Twilight getting her own castle in Ponyville instead of the old one getting fixed up was a bit of a surprise but it works for me. Even Discord seemed to really learn something this time.

Great way to end a very good season. Let's just hope the next one comes sooner than later.

Can someone tell me what has actually happened within the fandom to cause a lot of anger? I know by now that a lot of the fans can be annoying and weird, but a lot of people who dislike it seem to have much bigger reasons and basically something has happened and I wasn't fully aware of it at the time. I don't know if it was the copyright infringement, rape threats and online harassment by the fans or just something else, but I don't know.

I'm not really a fan anymore but I still get annoyed when ever the hole fandom is shun in a bad light, I'm wondering if any of you lot know about anything that has happened and whether anyone in the fandom had been trying to combat this.

The only things I can think of is the Cease and Desist against Jan Animations, as well as one of the bigger members of the fandom having their entire YouTube channel removed without any warning whatsoever.

That season finale was awesome! I must admit that it was a bit rushed at the end, the chest just contains an ultimate power of harmony that helps them out, it's just a deus ex machina. Yeah we had a lot of build up to it, but to see what was inside the chest would have been nice. I think if they cut out the last song at the end there could have been room for it, still an awesome season finale, better than the season 3 finale and on par with the season 2 finale.

Sounds like it was pretty justified for the fandom to get annoyed about, Jan animations probably didn't know any better and it was only through being popular that Hasbro took action, if what kisame said is true, it wouldn't take that much effort to add in a copyright disclaimer into the video if that is what is required to make everything ok. And removing a large youtube channel with not much reason was a dick move, not unless there is more to that story I don't know about, but off the bat of it, it just sounds like people trying to take down something they don't like.

But I wouldn't have thought it would have been those two events, I seem to remember there being a bit of a shitstorm over the Savederpy campaign and there being some arguements over people selling Plushie dolls of the show for money. That and some people being harassed by the fans.

Although, I'm not trying to say every way every fan reacted was therefore justified, I know bronies can be dick heads, every fandom has its share of assholes but im trying to find out whether this fandom has any more assholes than the norm.

Not every fan knows what every other fan has does, so when the fans have done something bad, all the other fans are going to be confused because all they're going to hear is the people getting annoyed but having no clue what has actually happened to cause it. So then you get just massive arguments between people being dicks on both sides.

This gave me an idea to keep this topic alive while we wait for Rainbow Rocks and/or season 5. If you could create concept for an episode, what would the synopsis for it be? Here's an example:

Ponypalooza: A big music festival is being held in Ponyville and the mane 6 all help set it up. Rainbow's cousin shows up as the guitarist for one of the performing bands, but things take a turn for the worst when he introduces the mane 6 to the drummer, who turns out to have a past with Rainbow and a deep hatred for Pinkie. Andrew W.K. guest stars as Rainbow's cousin.
