Do we have any fellow /traitors/ in our midst?
Anons who left the show at some point and then came back. (Whether that was years ago or now)
I know we’ve had threads like this before. It’s not supposed to be a “GUYS I’M BACK SPOONFEED ME” thread, I’m just curious as the finale has drawn in some slightly different traffic.
Sorry for short blogpost
I left early in season 5. I guess it’s just life got in the way and all my IRL brony friends drifted away from the show.
Of course I never forgot it but I disowned my past as a horsefucker.
I heard early this year that this season would be the last.
My first reaction was “about time”, but I slowly started to feel a compulsion to watch the last season as a farewell to what was once a big part of my life.
Quickly that became catching up on the seasons I missed, and revisiting all these sites I used to visit back in the day. I honestly expected them to all have been removed years ago, it was a pleasant surprise to see /mlp/ was still kicking.
I told myself I’d just come back to see the finale and then leave again, but I know now that was foolish of me.
The ride has pulled me back and I won’t make the mistake of leaving this time.

I stopped a few episodes into Season 3. Reading all the stupid shit the show descended into makes me feel like that's a good place to stop anyway. The issue is, can I even try to understand or enjoy fanfiction without having seen everything? I figure most stories that are worth reading are going to require show knowledge I don't have.

Watched until mid season 1 when I was 10.

I started during the Summer of 2011 during a pretty low-point in my life and dropped off during the hiatus after season 4 because I couldn't stand how the show had become what it originally stood against under Faust. I still rewatched the first 2 seasons and drifted around the board/fanbase on occasion though.

Yesterday I jumped straight the finale without watching any of the previous 5 seasons and still cried like a bitch
>Thank you for everything

So why/how did this show have such a ridiculous amount of leaks? Literally every single season after S1 had at least one episode get leaked early, and then it went even further by having internal staff emails, production flash assets, and even the entire fucking theatrical release, all get leaked as well.
>>
Because we have a man on the inside. The codename he uses to send info out is Hole, and we use dummy accounts to make it look like the leaks are from other places.

Anon, who cares what they think, if you feel bad you should get them back. I've lost a lot of things because it seems like the easier path. Find out what she likes, give it as a present and ask for the ponies.
This bothers you so either get those ponies back or get a custom Octavia.

Hello, anon. Are you ready to join us and our perfect world, now? You've been resisting for almost ten years, but we've even hijacked your show. Big Jim and Josh Haber were great assets to our team in order to undermine your show and turn it into the corporate steaming pile of shit we've always dreamed of.
Well, are you ready to join back to our corporate, soulless world?

Those traitorous corporate scumbags who did nothing but autistically collect those hippo toys instead of paying attention to storytelling in classes? Fuck no.

The people who obviously wanted a tiny hippo for a pet instead of a slender deer/horse? Burn all hippo lovers. Burn them at the stake like witches.

Seriously how do you go around calling yourself a horse fan and then you present them what looks like a really ugly overweight donkey or a hippo?

Is it safe to say these guys really weren’t that much worse than the Mane Six from the recent seasons?

>>34441826
wtf smolder left all her dragonhood exposed!
>>
>>34441826
No, they were much worse. Mane six were shit, but these guys were definitely worse. Note all the people ITT so far who like them just have vague shit to say like "lol they're cute" rather than pointing out amazing episodes or stories they had. Because there aren't any. Liking these student fuckers is like appreciating a background character who did something kinda cute/had a nice mane style.
>>
>>34441826
No. The mane 6 at least had character at some point and were interesting characters before, the students never had anything.

With advancements to AI, and even /mlp/ itself trying to develop an AI to replicate pony voices to use endlessly, I'm curious.
Do you think we'll ever see or develop AIs that can make full pony animations or even artwork based upon our requests?
This is something that has existed in the back of my mind for many years, but after hearing the news that recently, an Neural Network AI has managed successfully to self-replicate a "child" as part of an intentional project, that not only retained skills of its parent, but also managed to surpass the AI of the previous neural network, even going as far as to be more improved than most AIs made by humans, I think it might be a possibility we could see sooner, rather than later.

1 we don't have the resources
(terabytes of server space)
2 Voice and Animations are two different beasts
3 Animating is infinitely harder
4 Animating is infinitely harder
5....we can probably automate a trot cycle but no fancy stuff

Text-to-Video is an obvious application for neural nets, but no one is doing anything with it yet because the hardware isn't there yet to handle generating both audio and visuals and multi-modal learning like that is still early days anyway.

May be far off now, but all it would take is a miracle breakthrough for it to happen within the next few years I reckon.

Now that it's all over, it's time to reflect on the experiences we had on this ride over the past decade. What did the show mean to you? When did you get on the ride? When did you get off the ride if you did? What memories has My Little Pony left you with? What will you do now this chapter of your life has come to a close?
