April 1st 2011

I was one of the few who enjoyed Feeling Pinkie Keen and Over A Barrel, especially Over A Barrel. I found the action pretty good. Bird In A Hoof was at least better than Green Isn't Your Color and I absolutely detested A Dog And Pony Show and Owl's That Ends Well.

Why before the first EQG movie? Seems like a odd cut off time.
>>
>>34008521
Nov. 2011.

I'd already been predisposed to watching girl centric shows when I was little; PP Girls, Totally Spies, Winx. I was channel surfing and came came upon a channel I'd never seen before: The Hub. And I watched the ending of Call of the Cutie. I'd never watched MLP in my life until then. I got to see the cute-ceañera and the formation of the CMC. I also saw Celestia for the first time in that last shot, so that perplexed me. Then I go online to see more about the show and then I discovered there was an incredible fandom surrounding this show.

I do not regret a single thing.

>>34008521
Does it count if I clopped to Twilight in 2012, but didn't join the fandom until much later?

Right? Goddamn, I’ve been poniponi since episode 6, and there’s nothing wrong with new folks liking the show. And half of the oldfags are more annoying shitposters than the new guys.

mr yardovich's channel, and later, fillytube, endlessly looping the only 20 episodes that existed, along with countless youtube poops, fan songs, etc. my first contact with ponies was when everyone in the forum i used to frequent started having pony avatars, which i though was some elaborate prank or meme. first pony video was the ponycraft video.

I joined in late S2. Never quite managed to enjoy most of S1, though.

If seven chan is any indication of what passed for "oldfag" in 2007, it's probably for the better if you don't call yourself that ;^).

>>34008630
IDK, to me the actual cutoff is the S2 finale (since that was the last one Faust worked on) but I from what I gathered 2013 was when the fandom reached its peak growth, so I just picked a time from then.

EQG makes no sense for a cut off point as it initially had relatively minor impact on the fandom. Through the years we've had a couple very distinct eras:
>From pre S1E01 to early S2
Fandom is very small and centralized, ponybros are relatively unknown yet.
>From S2 to hiatus before S3
A massive spike in popularity, mlp songs and animations are getting made in huge amounts, many websites are created to manage the surge in popularity. Also, Strelnikov is still alive.
>From S3 to late 2014
Fandom is still on the uptrend but some of the bandwagoners are starting to drop out of it. Also many "true" oldfags are becoming more and more bitter thanks to things like Twilicorn and EQG.
>From 2014 to today
The amount of fan content produced per day slowly but surely declines. Fandom mostly splits into small communities which don't care about anything from outside their own. Mlp turns into a battlefield between a number of factions all repeating their own hive mind opinions as facts.

Back in the day only the people who joined in the first "age" were considered oldfags but recently I've seen even the third group being referred to as such.

First episode I live watched was Lesson Zero. That was one hell of an experience having just caught up with the show a few nights before. Cemented Twilight as my favorite too, and it's still my favorite episode to date. Partially cause I'm biased due to how awesome the experience was. I was not ready for the explosion of OC that the S2 Fandom could pump out. It was an absurd amount of content and discussion after it finished airing.
>>
>>34010700
Seriously, seemed pretty niche when I started watching a bit after s1 ended. Following the fandom throughout all the hype of s2 was wild.

June 5th 2011 here. Never took a single break after that day and didn't spend a single day without pone in my life ever since. I joined 4chan only in mid 2013 because of a language barrier though, so I'm only an oldfag for the Ruskie imageboard fandom. Jesus, I learned English only because of this show, I found 2 genuine friends only because of this show, I learned how to draw only because of this show, I learned how to edit and encode video and audio only because of this show and I'm making money on that now. And I'm afraid of the the end tbqhwymf.

November 26, 2010 when Fluttershy aired. The /co/ threads had ramped up to the point that you’d always see a Pony while scrolling and it was the early days of group streaming. The intro song had some kind of pavlovian effect that made me recoil, but I liked the show itself. I have some really fond memories of synchtube streams, new episode days and meming those weird commercials like the gyrobowl and Gak. It was a simpler time.

Not that I'm disagreeing but why do you like S5 more than S7? S5 was pretty good overall but S7 had more top tier episodes which is probably the most important thing even when half of the rest was dead average.

Season 7 did have a bit more likable episodes but never anything I'd 100 reccomend. Looking back, the only ones I liked were ones with super cute mom mares with foal chasing legs, so I think it was rose tinted waifu goggles. Maybe except for Once Upon a Zeppelin. And it was nice getting an episode about the Royal sisters but it wasn't about them. It was about Glimmer being scared she'd fuck up and cause something worse than the birth of NMM so it soured that for me. And it's not blatant Glimmer hate either. If it was Twilight or any othr pony in Glimmers place I'd still hate how it wasn't about the two sister horses. The sisters could have been the ones summoned to fix their shit and made the wager on their own. We'd get a few more minutes into their daily lives among other things. I can pick apart everything I somewhat liked in season 7 like this and then some. Ontop of that, near the end we got the dreaded HABERVERSE stuffed down our throats whether we liked it or not. Everything that was fun and mystical about some of the lore was stepped on by glancing quirky phrases and bad pacing. Even the worst of season 5 didn't do us like that.

Season 5 however had some Episodes I thought were pretty toptier in the whole series and asside from getting cucked by no Lyra in one of them, I wouldn't change them, so Amending Fences, Made in Manhattan, and Crusaders of the Lost Mark.

I joined the fandom during mid season two/early 2012, but I was only 11 at the time. I knew nothing about chans or anything outside of mainstream sites like YouTube. Only started posting in ~2016. Although despite this from 2012 to 2016 all I did was watch pony related videos, which eventually lead me into the world of fan fiction. Even before posting here I had read well over a million words worth of fan fiction and watched too many videos to count.

Am I an oldfag, or just a retarded Zoomer? Since 2012 I've been completely obsessed with this show, hardly going a day without something pony related in my life, but I hate myself for the fact that I wasn't old enough to truly appreciate the fandoms height.

>>34010837
There's going to be a pretty tight bottle neck around the time of the shows 10th anniversary, given the fact that this'll take place around 6 months after the shows final episode airs, just enough time for everypony to pack bags and leave.

But the hardcore fans will always stay, we'll just be getting rid of everyone who was never truly apart of said core.

Didn't seem as niche to me. I got to 4chan in general due to pony since I wanted to find reactions to early episodes and see the confusion of people falling in love with the show.

Same. Though it was only a month for me. Can't blame us after what happened to /fur/ though those disgusting piece of shits deserved what they got. It was a magical time. It was like a comfy little spot where /b/, /tg/, /co/, /ic/ and even some /k/ deerfuckers were wiggling themselves into different nieches, kind of like how /mlpol/ did but way longer term. /tg/ and /co/ wrote. /ic/ and /co/ drew a bit but it was shit. It's always shit. And we learned friendship and the beauty of horsepussy despite the autism each board bought to the table. I really miss AiE's early days when it had just merged Rainbrodash with Flutter and Applerape. I still talk and draw with some of those fuckers to ths day.

While the first Equestria Girls movie was trash, I'll say that it was a good idea that was just executed poorly.

Rainbow Rocks is by far the best feature length production that's ever come out of MLP, so I feel that there's nothing inherently wrong with Equestria Girls. It's just that the first movie soiled the sub-brand for a lot of people.

Like >>34014400 said, the first one sucked, but the sequels are actually pretty good. Unfortunately, the first one contains necessary set-up for the better executed follow-ups.

Initial expectations were pretty badly colored by some shitty early concept art and while the actual movie didn't look bad, it overall wasn't good and that justified a lot of people's negative opinion of the whole idea, hence the negative reactions to this day.

Beginning of season 2. I was very young, I didn't go on 4chan. I saw the show, read some fics, saw MAS, FiW and PTS. MLP was the last cartoon I enjoyed as a kid. I left in s4 and came back last year to finish the show with you guys, and read some fics. Weirdly enough, the only pony dream I had was back then and it's kinda relevant for now. The show was in episode 800 and something, Twilight was an alicorn and spike was big.

Season 6 is fucking dog shit.

Are you me? Granted I'm a year older and went to a few cons, but otherwise it feels the exact same. Wandering around the convention floor in complete awe yet simultaneously filled with crushing loneliness because I didn't know anyone and was afraid to talk; I was basically an IRL lurker.
I'm a little pissed that the real fun flew right under my nose and what fun I did know about I either never jumped in on or couldn't have properly enjoyed.

>>34020169
Not the guy you're replying too. Been in the same circumstance, just wandering around the convention floor for the couple days and then driving home feeling as if I had wasted the effort of going out there and hating myself for not making interaction with people. I've found the only solution to not wanting to kill myself after a meeting or gathering of any sort is opiates, ironically enough.

Does it count if I posted here before the first EQG movie, but never saw any G4 content?

I remember those days, I first found that website after A Canterlot Wedding, since everyone was freaking out about Lyra saying something for once and of course Chrysalis since she didn't look like a pony.

They actually put effort into the dubs though. It's worth it for the novelty of rewatching and getting to do it in another language. I've watched it in other languages too and more often than not they'll just sub the songs, the voice acting is shit, the audio quality is shit, and the audio mixing is shit.

>>34017846
If you're out, then why are you here, and why the fuck are you trying to pretend horsepussy isn't the best god damn thing in the world. I admit it was fucked that others groomed you into it, but I was fapping to horses when I was even younger than that and there was no g4. It's just better, Anon. You can lie to yourself all you like but we know why you're back.

Russian and Polish are pretty good. There are times where the VA's can't keep up with the original (especially when dubbing Rarity's songs) but at least they try to hide it.

Same. It was so simple then.

Yes but barely, I suppose. I didn’t officially start watching until 2012. I caught up to season 2 using Netflix and season 3 was the first season I watched as it aired.

Oh my god what a shitshow. How did I ever stay a fan?

Not everything was completely ironic and cynical yet and there was something to look forward too.
>been archiving my saved pics from 4chan since late 2011
>realize I have amassed artifacts of almost a decade of this culture now
Feels surreal. It really was a different time.

>>34024408
You better compile and share that. That's what reaction pic folders are basically, little archives and bits from the past. They're practically little stories, it's quite nostalgic to look back.

>>34025686
I downloaded Capper's huge zip before he "quit" /mlp/ for HorseNews or whatever. Some 2,000 screencaps that I was reading through and tagging. My old laptop bricked aa couple moths ago but the external I kept everything on is still good. I came here from /pol/ at the end of S2 and kinda migrated back at the start of season 8 with the everycreature shit. There's a /pol/ humor thread with some /mlpol/ content up and I've been looking on derpi for those brony meetups with the funny names, I'll put together some oldhumor threads for here when I get a new rig, for old time's sake.

Unfortunately most of them aren't pony related since I had a different folder for that and didn't start archiving that one until 2014 or so. My old HDD died in 2013 and with that 14k pics from MLPG and early /mlp/ were gone forever. That's the lesson I had to learn the hard way.
>>
>>34026305
I can't wait until you finally fuck off from this place. I'm surprised you haven't done it already as it's been clear that you stopped liking ponies years ago and you only stick around because you want to be relevant and cuz you got no place else to go. and you using the horse news twitter to shill for bernie sanders and blow darnald drumpf the fuck out during the 2016 election was total cringe and you'd think any non-autist would be self aware about that.
>>
>>34026608
Funnily enough, I've basically got the same story. My old hard drive (the whole shitty laptop really) also died in 2013. It's why I'm especially interested in full folders and old shit. I didn't save a lot back then either, so jogging the memories would be nice too. It took a while to get motivated to start again after all that time lost. At least now I've lots.

I cannot stress it enough to backup and archive your shit.

I upload it online constantly and keep a backup on an external drive. I did that with the old folders too but the whole drive just died one day, and then my HDD did too. I think me copying so many filed on that external contributed to its death.
>>
>>34026647
Same, I keep an external with a copy of all my shit and I update it semi-regularly. I only keep a few folders online, mostly so I can shitpost if I'm away.
>when pony pictures are treated as important as my tax and financial records
I was really bad before my old hard drive deded, I never backed up anything. Too young and naive.

Yeah, I've started backupping all my stuff after I've lost some of my music projects in a dead HDD back in 2008 or so. That shit was just devastating since after that I couldn't recreate most of those songs I've written down, and I was very proud of them too. At least now I make sure to keep everything in at least three separate places other than my HDD.

I was here way before Twilicorn but I haven't browsed this board regularly since about late 2013. I came here to just get lewds from various threads cos I'm a cum-brain faggot and I saw a thread on the front-page on my way somewhere else.

Do I win anything?

Whatever happened to all those classic threads and generals on /mlp/? The gay threads and Anonymous in Equestria. Those still around?

Somewhere in 2011. I don’t even go to this site anymore, I was just on a quick nostalgia trip.
