Welcome to the first planning thread for /mlp/ con 2022!>What is /mlp/ con?Together we're going to organize an online convention by and for /mlp/It will focus on: 1) the show, 2) /mlp/, and 3) the fandomCheck out some of our events from 2021 that are linked from this site: mlpcon.online/schedule.htmlCyTube stream recordings from last year: https://pony.tube/videos/watch/playlist/23aa2dfb-0217-4441-9ab7-6b447d94cd19 and https://pony.tube/videos/watch/playlist/1eed15e5-9d96-4d1a-8bc9-aeb35e309a3d>How will the con be held?Special events in this thread or othersLive streams on YouTube or private streaming platforms, broadcast via CyTube (or a CyTube clone, will just say CyTube for now)Pre-recorded videos made for the con viewed on CyTubeDuring the con, most activity and interaction will occur on the con thread and/or CyTube>What now?- Take the survey at: https://forms.gle/7iuVHB9Aru8GLged8- Discuss how we can make this year's con better here in thread- Take the initiative and reach out to people who would make for a good interview, guests from the show or others in the fandom that aren't from the board (don't lie to them and don't pull a Spec; if you are uncomfortable actually performing the interview, we can get someone to help with that)- Make some art of our con mascots- Host a panel or event or record a special video to be premiered during the con- Create short funny videos that could be shown during downtime (along with selections queued up by other congoers)- Help organize panelists - Create and maintain a planning document for the con that can be updated by the thread- Make a better web site- Be a CyTube janny who does it >for free- Organize and run a charity event- Try not to shit up the planning threads!Last thread (from 2021): >>37125837
The first questions regarding scheduling (first survey to pick a month) is included in the survey: https://forms.gle/7iuVHB9Aru8GLged8Will keep this survey alive for at least a week.
>>38080420Fuck off corp, stay in your discord
>>38080420>Should we use CyTube again this year or a different site?Could use cytube.xyz. It would be good to get away from the regular Cytube and Xaekei's meddling.
>>38080420First for ban Spec, fuck discordniggers, and I want it to be a /mlp/ con and not a discordcon
>>38080420>The showDon't you mean season 1 and 2? Because there are a lot of faggy ass faustfags on the board who only care about those two seasons and not the show.
>>38080420>the fandomBut why though
>>38080476I'm working on a cytube clone myself, but i could look into that as wellAny idea who runs it?would be bad if they were even worse than xaekai>>38080513you got it>>38080542it's how we get people like Shawn Keller, not related to the show, not on the board, more of a fandom thing
>>38080420Also, keep it FiM. No EQG or G5 bullshit please.>>38080586>Any idea who runs it?I'm afraid my knowledge of who runs it is limited. All I know is it's ran by some Japanese guy. Apparently this is where the admin is available at:https://cytube.xyz/r/operatehttps://cytube.xyz/contact
>>38080420Absolute unconditional ban on eqg, keep it FiM
>>38080641Sorry sweatie, G5 and EQG are board culture mow
Someone (who isn't me) make a cooking panel.
>>38080641>>38080645So you want FiMcon not /mlp/con?
>>38080652Cook up some soap to eat.
I hope Rocket Anon from the Rogue Con threads is still alive. I want to see their project
>>38080668I wonder when production will start
>>38080668>>38080685I was thinking of posting the first thread about it in the coming weeks
>>38080420>- Be a CyTube janny who does it >for freeRemember false flagging ziggers are just that. you get the barbieshit you deserve if you don't clean up after yourselves.
>>38080641>>38080645When they say "only FIM" they really mean only season 1 and 2. Fuck all faustfags.
>>38080692February, then? If June is the month chosen again, then that would mean we would have around 5 months for submissions, almost twice as long as last year.
>>38080645ooooooooh I'm here to take away your poooonieeeessss oooooooooo
>>38080652>cooking panelthis sounds like a fun idea, what would be a good thing to cook for something like this?
>>38080641>>38080645>>38080647Probably won't be a ban, but maybe we could restrict them to their own CyTube stream channel
>>38080652A cooking panel sounds scrumptious, you got any recipes in mind?
>>38080768the pony recipe book!
>>38080767That worked for the Anni stream so it can work for this
>>38080668No. Darkthology, Exoticthology, Mirrorthology, Degenerathology, etc.
>>38080764>>38080768This https://youtu.be/MHvw6wmx4Pw if you want it to be goodSomething from the official cookbook/pony drink pics if you want it to be boringMarejuiceSomething from that professional chef's pony cookbook, I don't know where to find it
>>38080767Keep them absolutely isolated away from anything pony.
>>38080801So no actual panel hosts because >NO HOOVES then? Deal with it there will be >no hooves and there will be G5. Fuck if you say no >no hooves that means no wrestling or divegrass for one thing
>>38080767100% make a separate isolated stream for eqg. That would make EVERYONE happy, literally everyone is in favor of this.
>>38080812There should be no EQG or G5.
>>38080814ooooo I’m LITRALLY everyone ooooo
>>38080420Okay, how interested are you faggots in this? Currently I have an idea for a competitive Equigon charity panel with all proceeds going to Day's End Rescue. The current plan is simply for it to be me, but an Anon got the idea of a competition in my head and I'd like to recruit at most three other anons and an announcer of sorts to turn this into a literal dick sucking esport for charity. Yes, Equigon is literally a game in which you suck horse cocks from gloryholes for points. You'd need a VR headset though, preferably a Vive, Quest, Cockulus, or an Index.If Anons are actually into seeing something like this happen as gay as it is I'll start organizing and putting the thing together like a month or two prior to /mlp/con occurring. Also don't worry, you don't have to pay for shit I can just send you a key for the game.
>>38080841mareman wins every time
How would I start making a pony waifu panel? It would have the feelings of anons for the ponies they love.
I'm going to be planning another writefag panel - for real this time. I totally did not realize I had a scheduled timeslot for /mare/con until someone pointed it out after the fact.>The PlanUnlike last year, the panel will be one hour and will primarily focus on me examining different stories and pointing out what works / what doesn't work and why. I heard from some anons after last year's con that they would have preferred to see this then me reading random fics in funny voices.>How will it be better?I play on higher production values; if someone can recommend a nice video editing / production software that I will totally not pirate, please do so. I don't want to just do everything in PowerPoint.>I hated your panel / youObviously it won't be for everyone, but I think this year it will be more interesting to everyone as it will be more for entertainment and less for "learning" so non-writefags will get more out of it, plus the "learning" that takes place with be hooves-on, so to speak, instead of simply talking about the different writing methods.>Can I suggest something for your panel?Absolutely, but I probably won't take the tips unless they are pretty good. I think my current plan is fairly good for the one hour I have planned.I voted for June, by the way.
>>38080916Every time I win I'll donate ten bucks.
>>38080420Oh joy, a new /mlp/ Con
>>38080841I have a Quest 2 and I've been trying to get Ramage to run on it for the longest time. I tried Steam VR, virtual desktop, and Oculus Link and it ends up viewing like a desktop version. I tried sideloading the folder into the Quest, but to no avail. How can I get Ramage to run on and in my Quest, and by extension, get Besti to run on the Quest. I will join and take up the challenge. Here's a MEGA link I made for the latest version of Ramage I got from an inside job. Is there a VR version or is this THE version of the game? I want my virtual mares NOW https://mega.nz/folder/n7QD0ALL#Ukwooqi_3vkJKd3tsO8AAQAlso, can you give us the Besti key hookup????
>>38080677My goodness someone remembered me! I honestly though that the other cons had died so I sort of stopped working on my project.
>>38081017>Also, can you give us the Besti key hookup????Sure, here you go https://u.smutty.horse/mfeaogffurs.horsekeyAlso, I can't give you a lot of support with headsets other than the Vive or Index as I'm not familiar with anything Oculus/Quest. That Ramage version should work fine provided you're not running the no VR batch file, but then again I have no idea how Oculus/Quest headsets work.
>>38080946>examining different stories and pointing out what works / what doesn't work and whySo basically doing fic reviews, but on livestream instead of written down? I dunno how interesting that would be. Might be good if you had a co-host, so you can go back and forth discussing different points about each fic, and it's not just "X good, Y bad, ok next fic" for an hour
>>38080942Can you be more specific on what you'd like to do?
>>38080652>>38080772>>38080799You fags mean this? Shoutout to my secret santa! I could totally do some sort of baking panel.I should start to practice my baking, I'd want everything to come out fabulous for the con!
>>38081022Cute and hope you make something for this rocketanon
>>38081022You missed my soap panel then, sad, because about 1/3 of it was going over chemistry.Sad, because I figure rocket pones would enjoy chemistry, I know I do.
>>38081470dead baking thread
>rewatch trannies already trying to take over the entire con again
>>38082520Are rewatch trannies in the room with us?
>>38080420>Wanted to have a game done for last con>Didn't get around to it>Have compiled resources for learning Godot>Don't have the time these daysFuck.
>>38081470Yeah, prerecorded may be easier, but you can do it live if you premade the final product then can show yourself mixing things like on tv shows >>38083695Just do it
>>38081022Underage retard detected. Looks like shit and nothing to do with pony so fuck off
>>38084422Don't be a cunt
>>38084422Hey be nice
>>38084977>>38085144Not him, but I feel the same. /mare/con had a few panels that were barely pony related and they were the most uninteresting ones. The rocket thing is in the same vein.
>>38085163It's all in the presentation, i have hopes rocket anon can make it pony related
>>38080841If theres isnt a dick sucking panel we riot
>>38085188This, but unironically. I don't even remember what that Anon's panel was about. The VR thing was an impromptu addition and it was far more memorable.Lesson to those making panels: your carefully pre-planned and meticulously produced content is absolutely worthless in the face of an Anon spontaneously sucking 30 horsecocks in VR.Take this lesson to heart.
>>38081324I'd like to read aloud what anons feel for their waifu. I want to go through >their initial attraction from seeing the character in the show or in porn>their first feelings for the mare, fuck you creaturefags, fuck you stallionfags, and fuck you fillyfags>what made them infatuated with them>the pet names the anons called their waifu>their perception of love probably for the first time you felt a female's love, you fucking virgins including myself ^:)>the feeling of attachment and commitment after time spent waifuing the same pony>the goals they set for themself to be more worthy of her love>how they rationalize those feelings>the resolve they feel to validate their feelings in some way, including if they married her in a ceremony>if they dream of their waifu in a literal sense>the hopelessness they may feel that mlp mares aren't physical creatures>any feelings of not being accepted by society for either loving a cartoon or the pony being made for young girls>if they've told anyone irl about their waifu, or if anyone knows about it>the amount of love they feel for their waifu at the present time>what they feel like they want in the future with their waifu relationship>their hopes and dreams with them and their pony waifu>if they believe in the equestrian afterlife with or without their waifu already knowing their earth experiences>what they tribute to her and their rituals to consummate their feelings>if they have a plushie or other waifu object as an outlet>what they may carry through their daily life as a reminder of their waifu>what they would like to do with their mares physically and what they'd give to do it irl>anything else they have done or are doing for their waifu that they are proud ofThe panel will be about everything and anything about what it feels like to have a pony waifu, to improve the quality of life for anons who waifu. Sometimes I wonder what I'd be doing if I was normal. Probably would be a pretty boring life. It's probably a good idea to leave the whole t-word subject out of this panel since the whole subject is too divisive for the panel stay on topic and will be covered by another panel during this con.
>>38085163JUST SAY YOU WANT FAUSTCON YOU FUCKING FAUSTFAG.
>>38085313this actually sounds pretty wholesome and could make for a good panel.when/how will you request answers to these from anons? it may be a bit soon to start>>38085220idk the PPP guys tend to put a lot of planning into their panels, and they consistently are among the favorite panelsbut still doesn't beat sucking horsecocks in VR>>38085163>>38085188How about a rocket shaped like a horsecock
>>38084422First off that's fucking rude.>>38085163>>38085172If you look at the fins you see it's got the name "LUNA" in the NASA worm script. They're clearly going to make it pony related, hell they did that launch with an SD card containing shitposts and clop if I remember correctly.
>>38085464>If you look at the fins you see it's got the name "LUNA" in the NASA worm scriptThat's what I was referring to about the panels barely being pony related though. Like the soap panel. It was a panel about making soap. He pressed Twilight's cutiemark into a few bars at the end, but that was it. Panels should first and foremost be related to MLP, ponies, or horses.
>>38085488They seemed like they had a plan in the Rogue Con threads about having a lot of pony
>>38085488>complaining about soap>in a fandom full of neckbeardsChecks out
>>38085532I'm complaining about the lack of ponies in a panel for a pony convention.
>>38085488I didn't attend the panel, but presumably he made the soap scented the way he thought each pony would smell like, right? If so I've got no issues with that, as it's a productive way to headcanon over mare scents.
>>38085707Imagine if someone did a mare juice panel and faggots got butthurt over that because of "MUH LACK OF PONIES" It's a similar thing.
>>38085801Yeah, these things at their core are pony related i think
If it lands on a day where I can book it off, I'll probably do a CYOA panel. I have around two years experience of running CYOA's and I would like to share what I learned.So if there is any new QM's out there this would be a panel for you. I've been making notes, so hopefully, it'll cover.>Universe building.>MC's and NPC's.>QM's etiquette.>Keeping your player base interested.If there's anything else you like to see me cover, or you wish to jump on the panel with me, let me know.
>>38080420I'll try being this for this year. it looks fun
>>38086866I am very interested in this, I always wanted to learn how to run one
ITT: discord subhumans intentionally shit up the thread to later justify a ""just for communication""" bullshit server.
>>38086866One important point:>Choices: do's and dont's, or how to avoid no replies because nobody knows what to chooseClosely related to:>Railroading: How to take the story where it has to go without the players realizing
>>38085361I might make 5 threads in 5 months before the con. It would be a whole lot to read in a one hour long panel.
Remember to vote in the first planning poll if you haven't yet, last i checked June and July were the two leading months.https://forms.gle/7iuVHB9Aru8GLged8
>>38087638I did my part!
>>38087361What ever happened to just IRC?
>>38088016It got replaced by Discord so IRC fags are mad about it and nobody else really cares
>>38088032>>38088016>discordBSEveryone on IRC is switching to matrix, and using their favorite freedom matrix server.matrix.horse and mlp.chat I believe are the two most advertised ones I've seen on /mlp/ - but there are a few other freedom oriented pone servers, as well as quite a lot of non-pone freedom serversDon't be a faggot spreading discord FUD
>>38088095And do these servers also have any of the panelists of the previous cons?
>>38088123I'm not in the /mlp/ dicksword but from what I've heard Corp (the guy running both this con and that discord server) was trying to get people to move to matrix since last year.No idea how successful he's been.
>>38088123I'm not too sure when the servers were created relative to the last /mlp/con, I am not involved with either really. mlp.chat came slightly before matrix.horse - not sure if mlp.chat was created with enough time before to be in any of the planning, since I wasn't involved with any of that either.But, a matrix server is very different from a discord "server". Anyone with an account on a given matrix server can make any channel they want and invite whoever they want to that channel, even people on different servers, because of how federation works.If you don't understand matrix and federation, look it up - https://matrix.org
>>38080841really fucking wish I had VR now
>>38086866>cyoa panelmuh fuckin DICK I am so ready
>>38086866My body is ready
>>38088167>>38088149See that's the point. You can advocate for IRC and Matrix and all you want but if the actual panelists are not in those servers but are probably on Discord, then that's why people always mention it.It's also why last time some people got upset about the use of such program: i know there can be cunts who think they are special about being member of a channel, but if actual panel creators find more useful discord and prefer to stay there then it's obvious they will gather towards "Discord Servers"
What even is the difference between IRC and Discord? It's two flavours of the same fucking circlejerk
>>38086866neat, if you could also add a segment, how to keep players entertained/engaged while also keeping yourself interested in carrying on story?Also appropriate levels of, lets call it, 'rewarding' player for doing something smart/cool in the quest without turning it into power fantasy wankery ?
>>38088167>don't worry guys we're not using dicksword anymore we're on matrix!The problem isn't the program it's the offboard circlejerking. Rebrand it all you like but at it's core it's always the same. What is so hard about following the principle of keeping shit on the board? The reason why some of the best projects always come first and foremost from the board is because of the low barrier of entry. When I decide to start a new project for the board all I need to do is make a thread and let you faggots flock to it and either praise it or shit all over it. But fucking hell, I wouldn't blame some Anons for being wary of starting new board projects because they're aware of some washed up faggots squatting in a circlejerk waiting for something new to come along so they can swoop in and take it over and pretend they made it all possible. Hell, there's one project I'm working on right now that I think might end up dying immediately because these same faggots are almost guaranteed to attempt to take it over unless I actively prevent that from happening and God fucking knows the minute I start doing that they'll all collectively flood the thread to stir shit up because they weren't allowed to become board celebrities.tl;dr It's all offboard circlejerk faggotry, keep shit on the board.
>>38088601Show me the voicecall and streaming services of 4channel please anon
>>38088863There's a difference between using Discord for voice calls and making a Discord "server" to organize and circlejerk on.
>>38088987Not him but why wouldn't you make a server so that those voice calls are organized? Why do you say yes to voice calls but not to a server, which is something ridiculously simple? Do you like to make everything more disorganized on purpose?
>>38088987Sometimes you gotta organize a bit to corral the retards into the call. Otherwise if you are like "hey anon that's doing the horse pussy panel get in the call now with this link here" posted here. You will have a bunch of retards rushing in an larping as the panel host and holding shit up.At least that's what I would do if links were posted.
>>38088987not really, still using furfag spyware software system.For voice, mumble is probably best. No accounts needed and is rather secure.
>>38086151>>38085801It's all about how you connect it back to ponies, or in the case of this con, /mlp/ itself. This is /mlp/ con after all.
>>38089126Besides the shill coin panel /Mare/con was pretty reasonable and the panels were extremely comfy.
>>38080841If I can get my quest 2 working with it I'd be glad to join in.>>38089200Agreed, the small size and last-minute planning of /mare/con gave it that comf feel /mlp/con 2021 was lacking.
>>38086866is this aftercase or bath?
or tentajack maybe?
So, Minecraft server. 2021's was basically just 2020's version but finished, but it didn't seem to grab a lot of attention or interest. What would (You) want to see this year, that would make you want to hang out in blocky pony land while checking out the cytubes?
>>38089332I still don't understand how to get this game running. Which fucking edition can I buy? Can I play on ipad? Is there any .exe I must pirate? How do I become the pony? It's so fucking complicated.
I don't think there needs to be a minecraft server. I rather the organizers and those that helped with the world focus their energy and time with other things.
>>38089332it wasnt really advertised much last year from what I remember, same with the roblox server. having links to them in the cytube heade(s) and google doc would help them get more traffic.
>>38089371as someone who downloaded minecraft for the first time for the con, it was really easy. you download the java version, connect to the world via its address, and thats it.
>>38089408its more of a place to chill and explore if youre not necessarily into whatever panel's going on at the time, nothing more, nothing less. you choose to go on it if you want to, otherwise you dont.and its basically built already anyway, so there really shouldnt be much if any time spent on it for the con this year. just spin it up and let her rip.
>WAH DISCORD WAH CIRCLEJERKDid you retards not have your own fucking con just weeks ago? Why are you trying to infest this one too?
>>38089437You can only do so much with a minecraft server tho. I rather spend my time interacting with the cytube chat and the thread but it's just my opinion.
>>38080841https://u.smutty.horse/mfevjmnzngs.mp4No homo btw.
>>38089517Hahaha fuck this is amazing you madlad. I wish I had a vr headset
>>38089324Well, his cyoa is more popular than the ones who started back in 2015
>>38089449thats fine, then you dont gotta join or nothin. the minecraft server's not integral to the experience anyway, only supplemental.
>>38089439I dunno man, some people just want something to be mad at. Last year's /mlp/con was pretty good despite constant drama in the threads so hopefully this year won't be so different.
>>38089411There wasn't a Google doc last year, except the schedule oneNobody volunteered to do it so it wasn't done
>>38089437We won't just be reusing last year's map this time around unless we end up not getting anyone working on it. >>38089411The server IP and instructions were in the OP of I think every thread during the con itself.
>>38089980You mean the minecraft server that was built via dicksword?
>>38080420Do you guys remember those MS Paint Risk threads? Can we do one of those?
>>38090535Refresh my memory
>>38090535why not? as long as its pony enough
>>38090535Just have a secondary stream of some morons playing Equestria at War instead
>>38090867This but unironically. I'd watch a multiplayer EaW session.
>>38090874Thing is I would love to be one of those morons. >have a literal toaster though
>>38090639>>38090812The OP of the thread would have an image like this.Each person in the thread would claim a name, a color, and an area. Numbers on the posts corresponded to their country's expansion, dubs got more territories.The mods didn't like it very much because it wasn't really pony related, but we could make sure that happens with the names and colors.
>>38090906Oh fuck Virginia's got chickenpox!
>>38090906>>38090867This seems better and more board related
How do we make this as >fun as possible, anons?
>>38091208No fun here. Only bitching about circlejerks and discord allowed
>>38088987thisthe moment you take stark anonymity out of the picture, most of you out yourselves for the narcissistic autists you arekeep it on-board where we can self-regulate
>>38091208I say the con should have a focus on the most fun, lighthearted and friendship focused iteration of MLP, Pony Life, as is G4's Swansong, the ultimate expression of ponies, finally completing Faust's original plan, honestly I don't even want to watch the useless drivel who came before or after, it's all mean spirited and soulless compared to Pony Life
>>38091512bro, you sound as drunk as I ameat something, drink water and come back in 20
>>38091519Maybe I will, maybe I'll keep drinking, but the truth is, Pony Life is to my soul as fulfilling as this cheap vodka is to my liver
>>38091524I also liked pony life, don't get me wrongMe simple man, me just watch pony and try to enjoy meselfI'm also the last guy who should be telling people how to drink (as I'm 9 or drinks in and my night is young), but I'd feel better if you at least had a big glass of water before you continued.
>>38083771I'd prerecord it, then have the link play. Would probably make it decently long to make it feel like a >panel
>>38089332If you want people to join, just make a short advert using the AI pony voices. Hell you could just parody vid related: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_88RnoYS8As almost word for word and people would have a laugh, then join the server.
>>38081151>fic reviewsI guess in a sense that would be what it is but I feel like a review is more from the reader's individual perspective whereas I am planning on looking at the fics from a wider perspective (i.e. what works / won't work for most audiences; when you do a personal review of a fic, you tend to focus only on what you liked / didn't like from a personal perspective).But the feedback is noted; thank you. Co-host is a possibility, I'm not against it if it has a purpose. If only for entertainment's sake. I will see what others suggest over the next few months.
>>38080645Ponified is okay?
>>38089324Yeah, it's me.>>38087369>>38088419Added to notes.
>>38089332>Minecraft Let me join with a pirated copy this time.
>>38080776The anni stream was the other way around. The main channel played eqg, but they opened up another cytube as a bunker during the duration. It's a good idea, and kept everyone that matters happy.
>>38092177Opinions are always split on that topic. I'd not include it but I'm not an eqgfag so I don't care about these characters.
>>38092343I haven't even watched one minute of it.
Can't wait to shit post mares again
>>38080841this absolutely has to happen
>>38080420I'd love to do a panel where I pack orders (shipping labels and any other identifying info not on camera) and chat with the cytube about ponies/the board. I can be funny and interesting for like an hour, and I like to think that (You) wouldn't find me too insufferable. Is this pony related enough to take up a slot though?
>>38094141That sounds like fun, I'd definitely enjoy it
I just wanna make some FIM edits of iconic moments of the show and iconic fan creations.
>>38095714Do it, why not?
>>38094141I'd love this, bump! Hope you get the snowpone patches soon btw! excited for my order This anon >>38084532 from the /merch thread has given me even more reasons to buy your patches.
>>38080420>/mlp/ con 2022good.
>>38080841I'd love to join, but I don't think I'd be entertaining as a co-host
>>38095762I'm just announcing my idea
So gentlemen, will the plush showcase/informational panel be making a return? I really enjoyed the last one.
Can someone help me setup OBS and stream and make my 30 cent chink headphones + mic combo sound even shittier but still clear enough to discern english words?
>>38096046That was a super last minute panel lol, but maybe we can get some plush people together again this year
>>38096087What do you need help with, Anon
>>38096087Amplify it to hell and then compress it into shit
Looking forward to the con bump
>>38088987Reminder that people who are against any form of voice chat are people who are genuinely too autistic for even /mlp/ to handle. It's funny at a glance, but actually kind of sad when you think about it.
I want to do a panel like my /mare/con Trixie panel, but it's longer and funnier.
To any VRfags out there or the one horsecock sucker anon, how the hell do you run Ramage? I have the Equigon and Besti running on my system, but not Ramage. Please respond back and OP is a fag.I tried removing the Non-VR batch file and tried running the game in virtual desktop and steam, but nothing. I can't move, Fluttershy is watching me with Jingle Bells playing faintly in the background
>>38099239What headset/controllers are you using?
>>38099292Oculus Quest 2
fuck rike, japanon, corpulent brony, spec, stuckey, and all those faggots in their cancer gay little discord server.
Working on my panel now.Submit questions for the mane 6. They are real and they will answer.
>>38100158>uses their discord user names>is most likely in their discord server To easy
>>38100398found the discord tranny
>>38100209I have a question to Twilight about her teacher:>I am pretty sure you're aware of Princess Celestia being portrayed as tyrant, an internet troll and, God forbid, a molester. Do you think any of these rumors are true?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cWBG1GKn8A
>>38100209Did Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy ever lez out back in flight school?
>>38080946>Unlike last year, the panel will be one hour and will primarily focus on me examining different stories and pointing out what works / what doesn't work and why. I heard from some anons after last year's con that they would have preferred to see this then me reading random fics in funny voices.For fuck's sake can you please plan what you're going to say this time. Reading the first five paragraphs of a story in a slow, drawling voice, then saying "yeah this is pretty good, but not totally great" is about as educational as a lobotomy and a complete waste of everyone's time.>I play on higher production values; if someone can recommend a nice video editing / production software that I will totally not pirate, please do so. I don't want to just do everything in PowerPoint.Presentation is irrelevant. You could livestream your desktop and just talk for an hour, what matters is that what you have to say is interesting and of use to writefags.>Obviously it won't be for everyone, but I think this year it will be more interesting to everyone as it will be more for entertainment and less for "learning" so non-writefags will get more out of it, plus the "learning" that takes place with be hooves-on, so to speak, instead of simply talking about the different writing methods.There are plenty of other panels for non-writefags. If you're going to host a 'writefag panel', it should be oriented towards writefags and the sharing of knowledge for their craft.>Absolutely, but I probably won't take the tips unless they are pretty good.- Select the stories you want to read before the show and read them in their entirety so you're familiar with them and have had time to reflect on them before scripting which bits you'd like to highlight as case studies, then give an overview of what the writer did and at most read a sentence or two.- Keep a list of bulletpoints sticky-noted to your monitor or whatever to keep you on track and to stop you from rambling off topic.- If you're condensing this down into an hour you'd better streamline what you have to say. Maybe even write a full script out for yourself to read? Listening to the last panel go on for nearly 3 hours with absolutely nothing of substance being said put me to sleep.
>>38100209Rarity, do you ever make your own lingerie ?
>>38080652>>38081470I'm absolutely up for a baking panel. Dibs on the lemon cake.I thought about it for some time and I think the most plausible way of pulling this off is:Anons pre-record themselves baking and showing the result.Then we make a live panel where we play those videos and talk/bant/laugh about anons' work.And I think the videos/panel should focus on the lulz because nobody really wants to learn cooking tips.
>>38100501Thanks, the fulsome feedback is much appreciated.The first hour has some pretty good advice, you may not have needed to hear it if you're already a writefag of some experience, but if you were a novice the only reason you wouldn't gain is if you didn't listen. The latter part of the panel I will not try to defend.I will definitely streamline what will be said as I winged it a lot last time because I wanted to have fun and I figured that would also make it more fun / be more in line with the spirit of the board. But I don't think that was the case, so it'll be more professional next time.
>>38100926Doing comedy right would simultaneously get lulz while also providing useful cooking knowledge and tips
>>38096087Oh, that's easy.
>>38092254We'll see. That was a plan last year (alongside letting bedrock players join), but everyone's lazy and didn't get around to doing most things, including testing those plugins, until the very last minute.
a couple of us over in /bale/ are talking about organizing a mass drawpile panel, with a drawpile open for anyone to join and a host or two talking while everyone else is drawing. Still pretty early in planning but here are a few ideas we had:>tons of anons just drawing together, with a host commentating on what's going on in different parts of the canvas (and just generally keeping viewers entertained)>experienced artist(s) teach basics of drawing pony (maybe teaching a few anons on a call, like AnonTheAnon's /mare/con panel)>prompts/challenges that everyone has to draw (maybe with a time limit?)>one anon makes a big sketch of a pony, and everyone else has to turn it into a finished piece as fast as possible>interviews with artists about how they started drawing pone and what helped them improve(?)>"mare-itory control": canvas starts clear with a handful of tiny ponies scattered throughout it, anons have to pick a pony to draw and make another little drawing of the same pony right next to it. The pony that covers the most of the canvas once its full wins drawings that are too big can get deleted or shrunken down, or maybe it could just be on a grid?if that last idea sounds interesting we might do a test run of it sometime to see if it would actually work
>>38092254If this is allowed, then everyone would need to use a sign in system since users could be easily spoofedAt least, that's my understanding
>>38104287Plugins exist for that.
>>38100209Is Twilight's tail dyed :^)
