Bronies or horsefuckers who craft their entire identity around everything this franchise produces, whether it be by Hasbro or fan related are worse than normalfags.

"Reformed" Discord sucks, yeah, but it's not like he appeared in every episode. Like, he literally only appeared in 2 out of 26 episodes of season 8, and 2 episodes in season 7. To say a guy who appeared in 5% of the show ruined it is retarded. Compare that to people who say Starlight or the School of Friendship are the worst things to happen to the show, and that makes more sense when you look at their screentime. I will agree that Discord singlehandedly ruined the series finale though.

ENOUGH.

The entire fucking "Anthropology" subcommunity is a fucking atrocity upon our fandom and deserves to be erased from our collective history. They made so many god awful animations for that fucking song, there are easily 10-15+ finished or unfinished animations for that retarded song and each one is so INCREDIBLY FUCKING UGLY, like holy shit. Nobody of sound mind would ever look at the final product and go "yep that's a good humanization design". These fucking animations get overplayed like crazy at every event and stream, you usually see multiple of them in a row, and all they do is take away the pretty pony Lyra and randomly put in the dogshit human design that is so much uglier than the original. It's time to stop playing these god damn video every god damn stream, they were awful back then and they are still awful today. And the fanfic is shit too, by the halfway point it turns into meaningless schizobabble that has nothing to do with the originally pretty lame and retarded premise of "le Lyra obsessed with humans" garbage to begin with.

Anyone involved with a "Anthropology" animation, song or fiction, you need to find god you less than human freaks. The person who originally recorded the stupid song should be beaten with a belt.

The 2nd episode of the show is garbage. The Mane 6 get their elements way too fucking fast for barely doing anything. The elements are a boring plot device which immediately solves any issue and becomes overused throughout the show. I'd prefer if the Mane 6 naturally had the ability to summon that kind of power, through raw friendship, rather than relying on magical items. Similar to how the 3 ponies in the Hearth's Warming Eve play huddled together to beat the Windigos, or how Shining Armor and Cadence combined their magic to beat Chrysalis.

And all of this works under the assumption Celestia just guessed that all of this would end out well considering she let Nightmare Moon fade to legend and didn't even bother helping the Mane 6 the entire episode.

The elements of harmony, and the school of friendship, are the only things about the show I wish never existed.
>>
>>39546261
>didn't even bother helping the Mane 6 the entire episode
Celestia was actually imprisoned inside the sun for the entire second episode. Not making that up. A lot of people overlook that and it's really glossed over, but that's what happens. But yeah, funnily enough, Season 9 of all things agrees with you on the point about the Elements.
>>
>>39546261
Is it that unpopular tho? I feel like "S1E1-S1E2 episodes are subpar and S1E3 is when the show REALLY starts" isn't much of an unpopular or anger-inducing opinion.
>>
>>39546268
>Celestia was actually imprisoned inside the sun
Oh wow I never realized that. After re-watching the ending of the episode just now, the sun finally raises after Nightmare Moon is defeated and Celestia descends from it. That's pretty cool.
>>
>>39546261
Friendship is Magic would have worked so much better as a season finale rather than the premiere.
>>
>>39546261
I'm pretty sure I remember reading somewhere that Faust basically wanted season 1 to be the premiere but stretched out to 26 episodes, with Nightmare Moon's defeat being the finale, but Hasbro forced her to establish the status quo as soon as possible. Medium limitations.
>>
>>39546171
Starlight having a lot of focus isn't as much an issue to me because I see her as the sixth (in this case seventh) ranger of the show. An addition to the main cast that comes later on in the story. (Granted they kinda fucked that up by not making her feel like a real friend to any of the Mane 6 other than Twilight)

My main problem with Discord isn't even how many episodes he has. It's that he has to hi-jack other episodes that could have been genuinely great instead of having his own episodes fully dedicated to himself (those where he does are easily his best episodes).
>>
I think reformed Discord is based and I liked his role in the ebic plot twist in the season finale
Worst things to happen were Twilycorn, school of friendship, and all the nonpony creatures

I hate /ptfg/, I hate Aryanne, I hate EQG, I hate G5, I hate futa, and I fucking despise Starlight Glimmer's fans. Not the character itself because something that awful can at least be poked fun at.

>>
>>39546047
I like the epilogue. It's not the ending the show deserved nor the one it needed and I do have issues with it, but overall I find it pretty satisfying.
In a similar vein, I think Twilight outliving her friends isn't as awfully terrible as many make it out to be. Yes, it's sad and painful, but it's also very much bittersweet as it allows Twilight to keep their memory alive for centuries to make sure Equestria never forgets them and what they stand for. In my opinion Twilight is the best equipped of the mane 6 to get a vastly prolonged life and also someone for whom it makes sense and I think that given it being a thing, her friends would neither want such a life nor for her to give up hers just to die with them, they would want her to thrive (This is what irks me about Remembrance and similar scenarios, as great as that video is). Also I feel like people tend to forget Spike and the other long-lived/immortal characters when talking about this, someone was going to have to deal with outliving others in any case and Twi being able to stay with Spike is also nice. We don't know what Faust really had in mind, but succeeding Celestia as a natural-born leader but not a long-lived alicorn feels a bit "have your cake and eat it, too" to me. There are many other things to discuss with Twilicorn and its handling, but for the idea itself I like to think it's destiny with upsides and downsides, but ultimately fitting.
This one is more of a conspiracy theory that I'm not sure how much I really believe in, but I think the only real villain of the show staff was Dubuc, everyone else had redeemable qualities. Even Hasbro was more of a chaotic, possibly even chaotic neutral force, a lot of issues stem from them but also quite a few good decisions (besides just making the show be a thing at all).

>>39546161
>Three's a Crowd
I easily see the other one (although I blame a big part of it on Dubuc's stupid "overdo the intended moral until it turns on itself and becomes bad" shtick, if it were more reasonable it could be decent), but can you expand on that? I always thought Three's a Crowd was a fun episode, does it rub you the wrong way that it's ultimately Discord being manipulative again? For me it works in this one, especially since everyone pretty much acts like they expect it to be more of his shenanigans and are mostly just humouring him.

The fandom has way too many degenerate, tasteless pieces of shit that happen to be really bitter because they couldn't get a real girl if they tried. Most of you motherfuckers are really fucking stupid and the endless fighting over what's canon is the dumbest, most neckbearded thing I've ever seen. A lot of you stupid cocksucker motherfuckers need to lighten the fuck up and appreciate the fact that people better than you are a part of the fandom too and they don't care if you're a halfwitted twifaggot that doesn't like if there are other people that like your (unfortunately) shared hobby in a way that's superior to your own, and it's not their fucking job to help your pea brain to understand why. Every stupid motherfucker that whines to no end about some ponies being portrayed as humans or aliens or whatever the fuck they're drawn as need to get a grip or better yet kill yourselves before I do it for you you stupid sons of bitches.

>B-but what about anthro, muh furries
It's banned, you don't have anything to worry about you stupid motherfucker. Now you're going to proceed to miss the fucking point and try to accuse me of being something else that your paraniod, fuckwitted brain came up with to shield you from the reality that I'm not only right but better than you are. Most of the time I get the feeling that anons don't want to put up with your horseshit or even take it seriously because not only are you so fucking stupid, but you're also paranoid as shit and so much lower than they are that there's no point in trying to convince you of something that isn't even there to begin with.

Anyway, this is a picture of Rarity when she's a human. I don't give a flying fuck if you don't like it, you can suck my cock cocksuckers. I'll fight every goddamn one of you if you want to tell me, someone better than you, that my taste is inferior to your own because it doesn't conform to your pigeonholed expectations about how the magical pony franchise owned by a bunch of fucking jews should be portrayed. I haven't even been here that long but I've already done more to contribute to the fandom in my own way just by being myself than you have over the course of your worthless fucking existence. Frankly nohooves posters have been putting up with your horseshit for way too long and even if you're just trying to troll, which I doubt, you still all need to be savagely beaten to be taught a fucking lesson about how to address the anons that might as well be gods to you.

Now eat my fucking asshole and bow down to your superiors. I don't care if she's a pony or a human, you're a worthless piece of trash that should be hanged at the next convention for insulting beauty itself, you stupid shiteater fuckwad pieces of shit. SUCK MY FUCKING COCK, and eat shit and die.

I found the student 6 to be likeable, a breath of fresh air for the show, and they had a lot of potential. Hearth's Warming Eve was a wonderful episode proving this. However, I thought Seasons 8 & 9 squandered them with a nonsensical concept and barely using them. The Friendship School made no sense. The mane 6 had busy lives already and should have not been teachers, let alone the ONLY teachers. Having friendship being some academic thing that requires several classes to be taught is really weird, since friendship is developed mainly through experience. Celestia didn't teach Twilight friendship, she had her practically learn it. The school should have been a normal boarding school with educational classes taught by actual teachers. It can be still a friendship school by just having all these different species there interacting and being taught good values.

The student six themselves got very little development, only having a few episodes starring them. This was a true shame, since they were fresh and interesting characters providing something new to the show, while all of the established characters were so played out by this point. I fully believe that the student six should have been the main characters in these seasons. If the show would have been willing to fully commit to its new concepts, I would have respected the hell out of it, and there was plenty of potential for story lines featuring these characters. Seeing their friendships grow and seeing the mane six mentor them could have made for a great two seasons. Sadly, the show wasted them. Seasons 8 & 9 were halfway stuck between trying to be unique and trying to be more of the same, and they fail in both of these departments in my opinion.

TLDR: Student 6 and the school of Friendship should have been the main characters and focus of Seasons 8 & 9, with the Friendship School changed to a normal boarding school so the concept was not stupid
>>
>>39547153
Fair enough, we didn't get enough Cadance and Twi interaction overall. I guess I simply did enjoy the Discord hijinks in that one and don't mind that he's the catalyst for the interactions we do get. I do tend to like him, though, so that probably plays a part.

Seriously, while the best would be to just not have the school, it'd be so easy to make it and the student six work better and be at least palatable: Make anyone but the mane 6 teachers (having the mane 6 choose/come up with a few general guidelines for those would be fine, the show has done "too much on your plate" but I suppose this could've been the first school episode past the S8 premiere) and have the mane 6 actually be the good role models/mentors they should be after 7 seasons while the student 6 are the ones with the conflict, instead of this weird stupid abomination where the conflict is between the supposed teachers and the students don't get any development. What the fuck were they thinking, the show managed to deal reasonably well with so many toy inserts/Hasbro mandates, why did the school have to be the one they fuck up so hard and keep digging deeper with?

The Perfect Pear is an overhyped pile of trash. The Apple parents focused episode was squandered on a cliche plot. Instead of being given what we wanted, how the Apple parents interacted with their children and left meaningful impressions on AJ and Big Mac, we're left with a dopey love story that's been done much better than what the writers could have pulled of in a 25 minute episode.

THIS. Glad I'm not alone here. That was an incredibly pathetic crude retcon that openly shitted on Faust's canon, and everybody swallowed it so easily? This boring retarded non-canon OC took away any possible screen time from Pinkie's actual real canon sisters. Give me a fucking break. This shit is outstandingly hypocritical for /mlp/'s purity standards. And it truly surprises me no one talks about it, like ever.

Celestia knew that she couldn't beat Nightmare Moon so she spent a thousand years preparing and planning to ensure there would be ponies who embodied the various elements who could actually beat Nightmare Moon. She had to wait for the perfect opportunity, and when it arose she instantly sprang on it.

What's this thread's opinion on Anon in Equestria stories? I know that many people here don't like HiE in general, and i can understand that - 90% of the time those stories are just wish fulfillment fantasies where all mares fall for the human, and in most cases you can just swap the human with a gryphon or something if you want to have a non-pony protagonist. But the thing is... I have a soft spot for AiE. I don't know about y'all, maybe you'd joined the fandom as seasoned literature critics and immediately disregarded AiE as childish fancies, but i joined the fandom when i was 15, and it was really fun to read all those AiE greentexts, to laugh and feel even though i didn't understand half of them at the time as i was only learning English. Those memories of scrolling through 4chan and reading Anon in Equestria greentexts on a school computer during IT classes in high school will stay with me forever, along with love for AiE fics.

Oh yeah, and this was back when we didn't know shit about Vinyl's eye color of all things. Go figure. This may be an unpopular opinion of mine, but I think I preferred it when we knew "less" about the show. Some people want all the damn answers, but for me that just ruined the mystic and mystery of the show. It was a lot more fun when we knew less about the world of Equestria and its inhabitants and had to come up with ideas of what was and what wasn't ourselves. It lent itself to more creative outlets for the fandom at large, leading to a genuine diversity of stuff. Sure, much of it was crap, but with how large the fandom was then, you had more than a few opportunities to fish out golden nugget from the pile.

These days, not so much with so much filled in by stuff that we ought to not "know". The latter seasons just killed the mystic of the world and filled in with cosmopolitan bull that just made the world of Equestria less magical. And G5? With their smartphones? Jesus, might as well switch over fully to Equestria Girls if you're going to include that stuff.

One more for the pile. I think S1 Luna could have work well if given a careful hand. Not her woobie interpretation know, but it could have *probably* worked in some way, shape, or form.

>This may be an unpopular opinion of mine, but I think I preferred it when we knew "less" about the show
Only newfags would disagree with this, MLP should've ended at season 3 (with the entire show being at the helm of Lauren Faust, of course) and it should've had an open ending instead of some hacky timeskip shit. Ambiguity is the foundation of creativity and the golden age of the fandom is proof of this.
>>
>>39549240

You'd be surprise how such an opinion would be received on a place like Fimfiction or Equestria Daily, the former being a place I frequented very early starting November of 2011. That place utterly *loves* the latter seasons, and I find myself the odd one when voicing such an opinion.

Oddly enough however, they appear to be resistant to updated the catalog of content from way back in the day to suit current "standards", such as updated old fanon names like Octavia "Philoharmonica/Harmonious/insert your chosen name here" to something more modern. It wouldn't be that hard to be honest. Just have some algorithm go way back when to update those names, and presto, it's in current vogue. They seem to be the type of site that would be all for that type of shit.

Speaking of Octavia, while I am personal preference to the name, it isn't exactly a pony name now is it?

Considering Melody is now the default surname most people use for that background pony's name, perhaps it might be appropriate to change Octavia to something more pony.

Octave Melody anyone? It's a musical name, and lazy as it may be, it's more "pony" than not.

Speaking of fanon though, that is one thing I just don't get in terms of people handle it. One moment it is perfectly fine, the next people are jettisoning it out the airlock like it is a pile of radioactive waste. This is especially the case with a lot of fan writers I have seen over the years, always trying to tweak their works to varying degrees just to suit canon, at the expense of their story's inner universe's consistency and lore.

Motherfucker, I came here to read fanfiction. If I wanted to see more canon, I'd look at the newer fics and the show itself. The absolute inconsistency just pisses me off. If canon were so damned important to such writers, you'd think they have the goodness to actually wait till the source material is hard as stone to finish. So much wasted effort, effort that could have been spent other things that would have stood up on its own just fine without needing to worry about changing this or that or some such thing.

If I had the power of a ban hammer on my side, I'd go through such a catalog and delete such works on a whim that were too damn wishy washy about applying the then current canon to their work. It would have pissed a lot of people off, but I think in the long run it would have discouraged such behavior and kept things more consistent on that site.

Ehhh they could easily have just used season 1 to explore how ponies are integrating after the movie, though they haven't done that at all and anyway G5 gives me whiplash trying to follow the continuity of the sporadic release when we haven't even got a season's worth of content yet and it's been a year and a half. TYT is canon but does not advance the plot it just follows along it with SOL stuff.

I love G5.
I think Twilight is the worst of the M6 and a blatant Mary Sue (whose character arc should have been becoming a powerful, wise friendship wizard and not a princess / queen.)
Student Six are fine and even great in some episodes.
The Mane Six are basic, cookie cutter characters and don't have nearly the depth that people act like they have. Most of that comes from fandom content that fans have mixed up with canon in their minds (same thing happens / happened with BG pones like Derpy and Lyra)

I think that's it for "unpopular" opinons. Also I guess this counts as one too but I really liked the 2017 movie despite its flaws.

I feel the exact opposite way. Her being a cunt toward her friends doesn't feel natural considering how far into the show this takes place. It's a conflict that you'd expect to take place during S1 or 2, not well after they've bonded and worked through literally everything else by this point.

Yeah, perhaps. Basically it boils down to which side is in charge of the establishment. For example, during Bush, it was the conservatives who were the control freak nutjobs and the liberals were the normal people with basic decency.

Even if such values were "left-wing" in whatever realm of forms you live in, the basic reality is that a majority of internet humor and edge at the time, from moon man to pedobear, would be censored without hesitation on any website that isnt hostile to the mainstream lefts modern iteration.

One, this was a reaction to circumstance, places like this only started to complain about intersectional activism, or "wokeness", after it surged in the US following OWS (likely a psyop to distract people from actual issues like housing and wage stagnation). Two, /mlp/ didn't become some political community that's constantly pushing for a right wing cause cause. It just gets annoyed when left wingers rear their ugly heads. The only instance of anything resembling political activism was the derpibooru freakout a few years back. Once again, a reaction to the left attempting to ruin the fandom.

Discord ended the series as pretty much the same person as he was in "The Return of Harmony". His motivation has changed but his methods haven't, he still uses and views everyone around him as objects to be manipulated in order to achieve his goals.

He has literally through his actions threatened Equestria more times SINCE "Keep Calm and Flutter On" than he did before it. Of the nine major threats Equestria faced in canon after that, Discord actively played a part in four of them, wasn't even around to deal with four more of them, and wasn't particularly useful beyond what anypony could have done in the only one that he was both around for and didn't somehow cause or make worse.

It was a mistake to ever release him from stone.

I never liked the muffins or humanfascination thing. Im just surprised hasbro didn't make lyra more of a humanenthustiast because they sure as shit did so with derpy and her dumb muffins. and yes the anthro song is overplayed and I never liked it and I dont like anthrofags because I didnt watch the pony show because of humans it is kinda in the name.

I don't think much revisions to the two first episodes could or should have been done to make them any better.

I believe that Autumn Whatever-The-Fuck-Her-Name-Is is a mediocre character at best, I can't even remember her full name for fucks sake and I am a sponge for useless information. Kirin are also incredibly boring to look at, with less body variation than season 1 background ponies, the most they do is make one big, not even to mention how every Nirik looks excactly the same. I honestly have no idea how the fandom latched onto these one off cretins, it seems like every other day when I try to look at fan art that it's filled with some fucking scaly bitch Kirins, and each an new price of art I have never seen before. Honestly, I think it's just mouth breathers who wank it to Autumn cranking out piece after piece of annoying ass Kirin art. God I'm tired of those scaly fuckers

Cadence and Shining Armor are, and always have been, a pointless addition to the show. If you removed every episode they're involved in you would have lost little of value that couldn't be recycled in better episodes.

Reminder that the only reason they exist is because of the royal wedding that Hasbro wanted to make money off of, which is fair. They could have easily had a unicorn princess that's the sibling of Blueblood, a unicorn royal and nephew to Celestia, marry the Captain of The Royal Guard. Tons of those stories exist and that's fine. Whats not fine is that Cadence is an Alicorn, which at the time still held significant value to plot and lore where the princesses were obvious deities. Even with how goofy Luna was in Luna Eclipsed the problems entirely stemmed from ponies remembering her as Nightmare Moon, god like entity, and Luna misinterpreting the meaning of the festivities of Nightmare Night, a folk holiday, where at the end some ponies give candy offerings to a statue of Nightmare Moon at the end for protection. No other ponies get this treatment and its entirely because she's an Alicorn. Meanwhile Alicorn Cadence comes out of fucking nowhere all because an Exec wanted a Pretty Pink Princess Pony for his niece that they could sell as a toy marketed for little girls, a move they had to justify with several shitty episodes, comics, and a short novel. But that's not all, she's also one of the main characters baby sitter, that no one ever mentioned. Meanwhile Shining Armor happens to be Twilight's older brother that was never mentioned, foreshadowed, or talked about until now that they had to immediately dazzle the audience with a bullshit flashback song to convince the audience of his importance. One of the above being in could have been ok, but all being a part of the plot makes it one of the most contrived dogshit stories in the franchise and their premiere episode is only carried off the back of Chrysalis, the Changelings, and a really good song. They're inclusion was so hamfistedly contrived Lauren Faust saw the writing on the wall and dipped and she has not been wrong in doing so. Season 3, the following season, was the first season with a shit premiere they wrote to justify Cadence's existence, shit finale, and half the episodes being good instead of most with even more executive meddling in the form of Princess Twilight, which only got worse. The only reason you like Cadence and Shining Armor is because you're a fan of the fandom and nothing more.

DWK is complete shit and was never good, and I think lesser of anyone who liked his "content" and insists on playing it during the anniversary while shafting other content creators.
EQG would have been okay if it were made in Japan, with total creative liberty given to the anime production studio, and the designs were anime to the core instead of this ugly ayy abomination.
G4 should be licensed to Japan, also with creative liberties given, to do what thou wilt with.
This board is full of tourists and retards who clearly haven't watched the show or have a wootmaster-tier understanding of its themes and morals as evidenced by the amount of usual suspects sperging about "wokism" in G% despite it having the exact same message core beliefs and worldbuilding lore G4 had.
The actual project destroyer, board raiding party, and discussion quality demolisher is the group that goes into every non-general thread, every project thread, every event thread to start fights about anything and everything while demanding the people in charge of said event or project bow down to every little demand ever made. As with the rest of the site, there is a non-zero chance of the moderation being in on it. They want you divided and angry with one another.
Maud isn't real. Maud is a tulpa given life, retroactively rewriting everypony's memories to make her look like she was always there, despite clearly not being part of the family before.
Vinyl's "official" voice was never good and it doesn't hurt at all that nowacking can't do it anymore on account of choking down testosterone. Vinyl should sound like an actually cool and appealing mare, not a gag character from spingebib.
Faustfags and "I actually hate 90% or more of the show xd" are actual cancer.
The fetish threads that have been forced onto /trash/ are less extreme than the fetish threads that are allowed to stay here. Either those get exiled too, or the others are let back in.

Can we get mare fetish threads allowed here and push the shit tier ayy fetish threads moved there to /trash/.
That'd be nice.

Fantasizing about being in Equestria to the point where it makes you depressed is not cool.
Having a pony waifu obsession is unhealthy and utlimately self-destructive.
Creating a tulpa of a pony is also unhealthy and self-destrutive.
Equestria is not a utopia and most people wouldn't fit in there any better than they would in real life.
The creativity of the MLP fandom is not superior to the creativity found in other fandoms.

Fun fact, Mattel actually experimented with this with a Monster High anime web series directed by fucking Nabeshin of Excel Saga fame. It was certainly an improvement on the regular web series but only lasted 8 episodes.

Also I agree with most of your points, particularly on DWK and the divide and conquer tactics being used on /mlp/, although I think you may be falling victim to that somewhat yourself with your point about "faustfags". The term is used as a trolling tactic and false-flagged almost as much as "barbiefags" is, and if you're able to identify bait then you have to recognise the

This is your mind on memes. Brain rot. With Japan, something school based can involve actually interesting things like building giant robots in a closed down airfield, finding some sapient AI that only you can see, and somehow stumbling into conflict with an international conspiracy headed by the committee of 300.
With America, something school based is dumb drama and infantile themes because pearl clutchers are afraid of their keeeeds seeing anything they'd see in their own schools. Plus, Japan's animation industry draws humanoids far better.

S1-S2fag here. They either dumped the show and the fandom in its entirety, or they subsisted off fan creations for as long as humanly possible until that too got infested with everything that came about from S3 onward.

For some, Pony hooked its claws deep into us. For those very few that remain, either they begrudingly adapted to the new stuff, or they hang out on the periphery nibbling at the edges for stuff that can bring a semblance of that magic of the first couple of seasons back into being, if only for a few moments at a time by write/artfags.

For my part, there is still a decent chunk of pre-twilicorn stuff to get through, and content that doesn't specifically mention her or is niche can remain stable and clear of the influence if you pretend hard enough. But otherwise, yeah, most S1-S2 fags left the moment the double whammy of Twilicorn and Equestria Girls became a thing.

Okay, retard faggot. /mlp/ being a blue board forces people to be creative with their posts because if they want to post horny stuff they have to skirt on the edge of acceptable. Porn greens are still fine, so that's more encouraged as it's a way to post a wide array of stuff. Greens also aren't as apt to be reposted over and over again, meaning you pretty much have to create new greens.
On a red board people would just grab an explicit image from a booru, post it, and that would be it. /mlp/ being a red board would kill content creation and to suggest anything otherwise is pure delusion and inability to understand or think through the consequences of that.

No. They want to be called "horsefuckers" because clearly wanting to actually fuck an animal seperates you from the furry classification.

Don't play these games. What you're doing is very deliberate and your arguments are disingenuous. You know what people use anthro to refer to. You're trying to get people using the word by presenting one definition of it that's more palatable so that you can muddle the uses of the words. Your aim is to eliminate the nuances and have people associating one with the other and using them interchangeably. The goal is to get people to think that there isn't really that much difference between ponies and the humanoid animal people you'd find in places like /trash/, e621, furaffinity, and the like.

I'm not falsely associating anything. It's litterally called "horsefucker," as in FUck a HOrse.

Horsefuker is the subset of pony enjoyers that hates to be called a "brony" because brohoof is cringe. BUT BROHOOF IS LITERALLY THE ONLY THING THAT SEPERATES YOU FAGGOTS FROM BEING FURSHITS. Pony is only exempt from furry because being a Brony was a lightning in a bottle and its own societal phase apart from furries.

I mean, how can you argue against them being furries when they WANT to be called a horsefuker, and they split hairs over seperating themselves from the one thing keeping them objectively seperate?

I hardly give a shit about the direction or the show anymore. It's owned by a soulless corporation and will never be as good as it once was. The people who endlessly argue over the finer points of the show need to realize that the writers have never given a shit.
Fan content is all that matters. The universe my DM spun up in a pony DnD game is infinity more captivating than the show, and that's just a simple DnD game. Imagine if the effort that was used to argue and bitch about the show was used to make something new and better.

I hate ship fags. I think the hate is connected to incompetent writers who don't know how to write a compelling story and can only please the lgtbq shippers crowd.

The writers hate straight male fans who criticize their writing and the ship fags only care about their ships being canon so they'll eat up any shit story they can create so its honestly understandable why they preferred to please them over the other. Because it meant those fans wouldn't call out their shit story as long as lyra and bon bon get together.

All ponies are straight. Lesbians and gays do not exist in Equestria. S8 and S9 only depict them because of Haber's satanic corruption of the show, and Haberverse should not be regarded as canonical because it is fundamentally an antithesis to what made the show good in the first place.

The stallion:mare ratio is close to 1:1 as it is in reality. Any other opinion is faggotry related to RGRE, femdom fetishes, and pathetic harem fantasies. Stallions in equestria are working jobs while the mares play around, and a show meant for girls younger than teenagers, the era when both sexes' opinions of the opposite sex are "ew cooties", will focus on female characters.

This was something that Faust wanted to remedy and it wasn't really intentional.

Then why was season 1 the best one and why was the first season of DC Super Hero Girls also so good too? Can't be a coincidence.
In all seriousness, regardless of how you feel about Faust, handing the show to Meghan and Haber is a massive downgrade. Maybe if they handed it to someone more competent the show could've survived.

Personally, I think season two is better than one, but they're both absolute GOATs. I think it was honestly the whole team together that made those early seasons special. Lauren's actual episode writing was always pretty mid. Not terrible, mind you, but just alright. They were certainly fun eps though. If Lauren hadn't got the shit can, I fully believe the full team would've stuck around longer along with having her unified and concrete vision. Also horsey ponies. That's one of the biggest things we lost as time marched on. They started makin pones just straight stand ins for people. We lost the lil' whinnies and cute nickers. The adorable saddles and fashion like twipig had in winter wrap up. So that's honestly why I've never agreed with Lauren is supreme argument. It always felt like when a game company would say
>MADE BY THE FUCKERS WHO MADE THAT GAME YOU LOVED 5-10 YEARS AGO
It trivializes the work of the whole that made it special.

MLP was shit from the start. The only use of it is getting shitpost material, getting lols and keks out of pissed nyxfags, tranny ponychanners, tulpa- and waifufags, and other normies fed up with the gay furry bronies, and cartoon porn if you are into that shit. It's a shit show and people emotionally attached to it are shit eaters who need to be thrown shit at. While at the topic of shit, Trixie is a tool to deliberately misrepresent gypsies, implying they are misunderstood and could become better with guidance, and totally not murderous thieving lowlife scum. Trixie is dirty filthy gypsy horse that need to be flushed like the turd she is.

This is all a semantics issue.
When /mlp/ refers to anthro, we mean character designs that have animal heads and human bodies. Ponies do not fit this definition of anthro, since they have pony heads and pony bodies. However they do have anthropomorphic traits, which means they behave and express themselves humanly most of the time, even if during the early seasons they have plenty of horsey traits they still think and behave like humans. But /mlp/ never talked about that kind of anthro, just the one that refer to characters that have animal heads with human bodies, this kind of anthro is an eyesore, an abomination, and is what most furries like and identify themselves with.

>altboorus are fail, you just need to have balls to admit it
I really hate how this played out. I think having multiple archives is great, but they really fucked up their opportunity for gaining a steady userbase. There was a good chunk of people who wanted to leave Derpi during that whole shitstorm, and the alt devs, instead of working together to provide a unified option, tried to make their option "the next Derpi". As a result, that sizable group of people splintered, were spread out across multiple boorus instead of one, and left when they realized how dead it was. I'm glad those alts and backups exist, but I'm sad they pissed away their chance at gaining a steady userbase.
>>
>>39577426
>Those things look less like ponies than any other generation.
They look more like real equines than G4 ponies do.
>>
>>39577477
More options are good, I think
>gaining a steady userbase
is secondary to everyone being able to have the booru experience they prefer. It's more like the old internet where there was choice, before everything was centralised to sites that could then pull whatever retarded shit they wanted because they ended up with a monopoly (JewTube being a prime example of that). Centralisation is only preferable to money grubbing corporations.

Right, and we could've had an alt-booru with a population comparable to Derpi if there was only one option presented at the time of the shitstorm. That would've been my preference. But because the "market" was so saturated, nothing ended up getting used. The mods of Derpi suck ass, but the amount of people they have tagging pictures is really good. The alt-boorus are fucking dead when it comes to adding tags. The only good tagged pictures they have are ones they scraped from Derpibooru in the first place.

Like I said, I'm glad the alts exist, I just wished they were actually used by more than 8 people.
>>
>>39577306
>altboorus are fail, you just need to have balls to admit it
they're good as archives and allow more content
>>discord is pretty flat character
he's a decently written character. it's just that later seasons didn't use his potential
aside from that i more or less agree
>>
>>39577477
All "The next Derpi" means is the best place to go for the content, which is exactly what you're appealing to when you say a unified option. The problem was that one the fandom was on the downturn, where as Derpi was established during the upturn - more culturally known and relevant in minds. Second Altboorus had mixed features; Derpi had the advantage of images already being rated by others over years, a quality filter. People want quality filters when browsing because they don't want to spend too much time sifting through crap. Ponybooru had to start from 0, Twibooru had to start from 0, only ponerpics imported derpi scores. The only advantage these platforms had was less censorship but it was still easier to stay on Derpi and only use the Alts for censored stuff. They should have copies way more from Derpi than they did.

As a Maudfag, I disagree in a lot of ways, but I will admit and say I wished Lime and Marble got more screen time. I would have happily given up most of Maud's scene time in Seasons 7-9 to allow Marble and Lime their own episodes since Maud's character was starting to get watered down at that point.
>>39551223
I understand the anger with the retconning of Maud, but the people saying that she's completely one-dimensional while acting like Marble and Lime were far more complex always loses me. Marble was just an earth pony Fluttershy without the animals, Limestone was just a Tsundere character. If they got their own episodes, they could have broken out of their caricature, but as, they are just as one-dimensional as Maud by their logic.
>>39549240
>>39549352
I completely agree with the later seasons killing a lot of the enjoyable creativity in the various fan works. When a lot of the in-show world was left ambiguous, we ended up getting a lot of interpretations of various aspects of Equestira, along with the characters. By the time we got to Season 9, a lot of that mystic was gone, and I think the fics and alike suffered as a result. I've noticed that the best fics I've read, happened during Season 1-4. once it got past there, and started adding shit like the Castle, Student 6, etc, I just found a lot of work to be far less interesting. I wish a lot of the newer fic writers would stop feeling a need to be up-to-date with the newest season, and stick to writing based on the first 3-4 seasons.
