I am not a fan of it, either.
But instead of posting stuff like this to dA, Reddit or cheezburger.com (fucking seriously!?), comment your displeasure to the ad team themselves so they can weigh in the fact that there are facets of the fandom that don't agree with this.
If you really have an issue with it, voice your opinion. Do not resort to slacktivism.
(/cadancesmile) Crystals, bitches.

Sorry for taking as long as it did; I'm currently at work and writing between calls. This also hasn't been edited or revised in any way, so forgive me a few trespasses of grammar and spelling and the like.
Edit: The response from the community has absolutely blown me away. I was going to play Skyrim tonight while I am on-call for work, but after this I've decided to put the night toward putting another couple thousand words onto my principal fan fiction instead. Thank you all.
(/scootaderp) Have some Gfycat mirrors ^(since reddit shadowbanned gfy_bot)! Considering these two are 134 seconds combined, gaining the ability to pause and slide around the timeline would not be a bad idea. (Round 1, Round 2)
Join us next time as we continue to ask the question "How long is too long?"
As cute as the game is, the developers clearly ripped off another game called Toy Blast. I started playing that instead when I found out. It's literally exactly the same, just skinned differently. Puzzle Party also only has 143 levels whereas Toy Blast has 1000.
I think I can confidently speak for the fandom as a whole and say that Backflip Studios did something that we can't in good faith support. All they did was purchase a license from Hasbro to make an MLP themed game, but chose to reskin an existing game from another developer instead for a quick money grab. It's rather unfortunate that this happened.
If you've enjoyed Puzzle Party, I recommend checking out and supporting Toy Blast.
It's the auto-generated season cards from Plex. I think it gets them from TheTVdb.com or somewhere.
Download with all the wallpapers for the lazy since OP haven't provided one.
Or just get this program to download the imgur album yourself as the download speed from the hosting site seems very slow.
This is re-hosted from Pixiv because to view the full images, you need to have an account. This was very recently drawn by one of my favorite artists, "ねっつー". (Nettsu)

(/sp)(/lyra) In unrelated news, I saw that the Horse Wife tumblr has been posted on metafilter:
(/twiright "I'm going to do what I do best---lecture her!") I'm gonna pull a Twilight Sparkle here and point out that lunacy was originally thought to be caused by the moon, just like werewolves. For centuries, Europeans thought that phases of the moon controlled many people's sanity and psychopathic impulses. Your pun is very apt.
> We should probably move quickly on it, as the show kind of feels like a flash in the pan. [source]
A show with a sixth season in development and a gigantic five-year-old fandom that's still going strong is a "flash in the pan" now?
For those who don't understand the reference, the "cutie mark" in the picture is of the main character from the flash game series Fancy Pants Adventure.

A lot of people forget that the Mall Collection Rainbow Dash wears a white T-shirt and black pants. The rest of the colors are in her hair.
Couldn't find the toy on the official website (since it's been discontinues), but here's an Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/My-Little-Pony-Equestria-Collection/dp/B01JLYEYD4

(/flutterfear)I'm personally all for it, but you know how Reddit AMA can get if it's used for commercial promotion purpose.
Hope it will go okay.
And most importantly, Monster High is netting Mattel a ridiculous amount of money
Choice quotes from the article:
Mattel said Wednesday its first-quarter net income more than quadrupled helped by strong sales of dolls like Monster High
The fashion doll category has been one of the toy industry's strongest, helped by new entrants such as Monster High — a doll line based on the offspring of famous monsters — which has grown to the No. 2 doll category in just three years of existence, according to Mattel. [number 1 is Barbie, which is also Mattel owned]
BMO Capital Markets analyst Gerrick Johnson noted that "hotter" toy brands, like Monster High drove results rather than basics like Barbie, Hot Wheels or Fisher-Price, which all had slightly lower sales. "That doesn't bode well for Hasbro, which has few 'hot' products," he said.
You can't really blame Hasbro for wanting a piece of that action, and I trust that the writers can make something <strong>much</strong> better than the videos Monster High puts out
(/fluttershh) "Caroling." (/sp)
(/raritywut) Right, that. What was I doing, then? (/sp)

Thank you. This gave me that idea that maybe Harry Potter fans had already invented the phrase, and this was a reference for them.
(/lunahappy)So I canvassed Google in various ways for a mention prior to the pony mention and could not find it. This seems completely original to the show!
Wow, you ~~guys~~ ponies rock! (Also, happy cake day!)

(I have a feeling I'm gonna be end up watching the whole series really soon because of it)
Because Mattel is making more money selling Monster High dolls than Hasbro can selling ponies, and Hasbro wants some of that sweet humanoid-but-with-weird-skin-tones doll money.
I have an installation .exe for the screensaver (the background is turned transparent). link here hosted on dropbox

I fully recommend you try Bastion out, get it along with the Humble Bundle by paying above the average purchase price (currently $8.30): https://www.humblebundle.com/
It quickly became one of my favorite games. The narration and art style is really cool.

(/twisnide)Why Rarity, I never knew about this side of you. If you wanted me to tie you up tight you could have just asked. I have a thousand different ways.

There are SO MANY Rarity!!
The merchandise is actually selling crazy well.
They released some reports for the past few quarters and g4 pony stuff is their fastest growing division.
Definitely not because things are dying down.
They haven't even started taking down youtube videos more actively recently either. Assuming it hasn't been trolls in the past (which is the recent claim apparently) they've been filing small time reports on a very small amount of channels passively for quite a while.
Basically, nothing new. Not sure why it's been getting more attention lately. The only thing that's happened recently that's outside the norm is ponyarchive being taken down and that was a site dedicated to violating copyright on a download product they were selling. Everything else is still business as usual.
(/ajugh "You people drive me to distraction.") Fanfic in progress...
Edit: (/huhhuh)Fanfic completed. If you don't like reading it in reddit comment format please hit it on google docs.
Well, you are supposed to be 13 or above to post on Reddit. I believe it has to do with privacy laws.
Though if he is just browsing this subreddit it should be fine. This sub is supposed to be family friendly. (/sp)
I think buying an ornament is a great way to be supportive. Really though, trying to connect and not teasing him for his interest is a great start.
You may also consider getting him some of the MLP comics for Christmas, I'm sure he would like that. They are having a sale on digital copies of them as part of the humble bundle.
Ah, by the way, the singular is "brony," not "bronie." In any case, it seems like you are doing fine. Unless you have more specific questions, I'd say just keep doing what you are doing.
Also, the author of that fanfiction has also written a pony fanfiction. It can be found here.
Short and to the point: This is the requested update to the Battleclouds game pieces from last week. The design is done. I am still working on getting the best print i can out of my 3D printer. Future Updates will happen at my Deviant Art page (linked below). Also linked below is some additional pictures and the Beta CAD file if you want to play around with the design.
Long Version: Ok I have taken the last week and rebuilt the Seagull, Weather Pony, and Thunderbolt from the ground up. As you can see below were a lot of iterations to get to this point. At current it takes about 2 hours to make one full set (single player) and if painted up to 6. I am unsure how much plastic is being used by each set but i can tell you that my 1 Kg spool is looking slimmer. This, like all my MLP CAD work, is going to be released to the community at large. The CAD Files will also be available on Thingiverse sometime in the near future. If you have any questions feel free to ask them.
(/rabmeh) I'm kind of abhorrant about the general treatment of humanity on reddit, sometimes.
I've said this before in this "should we be in /r/all?" post, but reddit has a reputation in other Internet places as a hive of pseudonymous jerks. There's a lot of great subreddits here (not just MLP), I am occasionally reminded there's also a huge teeming mass of jerks just over the fence.
> Sunset Shimmer has been officially deprecated in favor of Starlight Glimmer. Sunset was created to serve a needed function in our companion product Equestria Girls, and mainline MLP4 was never intended to support her. Please use Starlight for all Twilight protégé needs. Sunset support will be sunsetted in the next release.
(/sunsethammertime)Did our letter of thanks mean nothing to you?
(/wahaha-intensifies)aaaaaa*aaaaaaa* aaaaaAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I can understand why they didn't want to cover Sunset being homesick. That could be a whole new movie by itself, and forcing it in here would dilute SciTwi's story what with the time constraint.
But man. It was so nice seeing Princess Twilight actually... mentoring someone other than kids. And it was really well done too.
AND I NEED THAT DUET SONG. SOME PLEASE RIP IT.
One thing I am glad they took out was that whole scene at the end where SciTwi's all positive about going back to CPA. So clunky.
For reference, OP is talking about this and I wouldn't be surprised if it was a scam. Too many people in this fandom throw skepticism and street smarts out the window when ponies come into the picture, like with that "homeopathic medicine" ordeal a while back. How many people would have supported that if it wasn't pony related? (/sp)
(/squintyjack) This kickstarter does seem a bit sleazy. Not sure if its because it's a "brony dating sim" or because it has foal intentions. It reads like it is trying way to hard and they state that it's mostly finished, so why collect money now? Especially with such reach goals.
edit: This was x-posted to the Plounge
Edit 2: I didn't even know there was an accompanying video. I couldn't even watch past the 30 second mark. I don't think this could look worse.
(/derpyhappy) Well...to be honest... (/sp) (/rohhi) And now you can make one at the comfort of your own home!
My own are the most ridiculous I've seen.
Most rainbows seen in the show are not simply a mixture of colors, but are their own color unto themselves. Any liquid colored as a mixture shouldn't behave the way liquid rainbows do both times the ponies touch it, and actual rainbow thread would be quite garish in most contexts (not that it gets used anyway, but still). What color is it? Octarine (first seen on the Discworld), considering that it seems to be the color of magic (sonic rainboom, Elements of Harmony blast, that rainbow nuke that Dash did) and the ponies can see it just fine because they're all magic users (and/or cats).
The way I fit in FiM into an everything-crossover I'm helping to build is rather absurd. To summarize: one of Shadowfax's (the legendary horse from LotR) descendants was a chariot horse named Strawberry (renamed Fledge by Aslan) that was one of the first inhabitants of Narnia. He still believed in Eru Illuvatar, and so did his family line (which became gradually stronger due to the combined forces of Narnia's latent magic and their legendary bloodline), to the point where at the end of Narnia they decided to leave, permanently opening the Wood between the Worlds in the process. At this point they are discovered by England's wizarding underground, and develop into a community from there. (Now that I think of it, this is probably where the unicorns learned magic.) Not much happens for awhile (they were key to averting the 2012 apocalypse, but that's another very long story) and if everything goes well they develop a nation after humanity dies off (except for the ones way off in space) from a nuclear/robot/alien induced apocalypse. And that's how Equestria was made. And then Pokemon and Classic Sonic happen in the far future of that. Also, Philomena is Fawkes and Luna is named in part after Luna Lovegood.
Apparently, like this.
A house in my neighbourhood, which has been painted that way for as long as I've known. The house next to this one used to have a similar colour scheme until a few years ago.
The writing next to the door says "Somewhere."
Edit: since LadyLazeh answered the unasked riddle, you can see the house for yourself roughly here.

(/sbbook) Beowulf has a pretty interesting etymology in itself. Beowulf means "bear" though a kenning of words 'bee' and 'wolf' together (suggesting that bears are like a wolf for bees?):

(/scootacheer) It's a bit late for this, but oh well. With the brand-new change that means users will need to specify a reason with their reports, I'm interested in some thoughts on what we should have as our list -- when and if we get the opportunity to change that ourselves.
I might make it:
Any thoughts? I considered making 'repost' its own section since it'd be used so much, but then I figured there's no reason to bloat the list any more than we need to. I'm also not sure whether to include 'spam' or not. Like, we don't really get spam that's related to ponies, so I don't know what spam wouldn't be covered under Rule 3.

The Prelude is a bit rough and feels out of place (to me), but once you hit chapter two/three, there is no turning back,
I have fallen asleep while reading, and that's new for me.
Unlike most fics, it does not contain any shipping, and it does a very well job at keeping it PG friendly considering it's content.
just trust me and please read it, perhaps I am giving it to much praise, but to me there will never be anything quite like it.
Well, if you haven't read the comic books, now's the time! (/sp) EDIT: Also, you should definitely watch Friendship is Witchcraft given how much fanon it birthed. But you'll have to search for it on your own since they all got pulled off of Vimeo.
I had a brilliant idea from one of the GIFs I made from the previous thread. So I slapped together a "Deal With It" GIF to test my skills.
I'm pretty proud of it. I mean, I got the golden hoop to look like it went over the glasses, so that's nice.
If you want a GIF to be made I require at least 2 things:
If you want text or some sort of other edit, I can do it but it will take additional time.
Also, I approve of this new style of rage comic.

This recalls Yudkowsky's epic HP Fanfic:
> Broomsticks had been invented during what a Muggle would have called the Dark Ages, supposedly by a legendary witch named Celestria Relevo, allegedly the great-great-granddaughter of Merlin. > > Celestria Relevo, or whichever person or group had really invented those enchantments, hadn't known a darned thing about Newtonian mechanics. > > Broomsticks, therefore, worked by Aristotelian physics. > > They went where you pointed them. > > If you wanted to move straight forward, you pointed them straight forward; you didn't worry about keeping some of the thrust going downward to cancel out the effect of gravity. > > If you turned a broomstick, all of its new velocity was in the new direction of pointing, it didn't go sideways based on its old momentum. > > Broomsticks had maximum speeds, not maximum accelerations. Not because of anything to do with air resistance, but because a broomstick had some maximum Aristotelian impetus its enchantments could exert. > > Harry had never explicitly noticed that before, despite being dextrous enough to get the best grades in flying class. Broomsticks worked so much like the human mind instinctively expected them to work that his brain had managed to entirely overlook their physical absurdity. Harry, on his first Thursday of broomstick lessons, had been distracted by more interesting-seeming phenomena, words written on paper and a glowing red ball. So his brain had simply suspended its disbelief, marked the reality of broomsticks as accepted, and proceeded to have its fun, without ever once thinking of the question whose answer would have been obvious. For it is a sad fact that we only ever think about a tiny fraction of all the phenomena we encounter...

It's like no one even tries to keep them tidy and organized, just randomly slapping in some wallpapers they think look cool and then be done with it...
So I find the ones in my resolution and the ones in a higher one so I can resize and cut them down to the correct resolution. And then I put them in my folder with over 1400 wallpapers, every single one of them in 1920x1080.
(/ajhappy) So if you'll have me excused, I'll just drop this here and ask you to PM me your dropbox email if you want all the wallpapers without too much hassle.

hey guys, i'm the creator of the plushies. THANK YOU for your kind comments! i'm in school right now and i make these in my spare time to sell because i don't work during school. that's one of the reasons i don't take commissions - there's too much time pressure on those. also, i don't know how much they're worth and how much people are willing to buy them for. that's why i put them on ebay as i make them. it solves every problem. i know they seem a bit pricey but it's not my fault - i start them from $45-$60 and they go up by themselves. so i've seen here that luna, vinyl scratch, rarity, and applejack are requested - i will make them eventually. i've already got vinyl scratch planned for my boyfriend, and i'll make another to sell. my current list of who i'm going to make is this: dr. whooves cutie mark crusaders (set of 3) twilight sparkle rarity vinyl scratch applejack luna then i'll probably get around to making duplicates. i may make a rainbow dash in between some because she is very popular. i have a DA that i update when i make new ponies: http://ravenhedgehog.deviantart.com/ and here's my ebay account where i'm currently selling fluttershy and rainbow dash: http://www.ebay.com/sch/bjaniszewski/m.html?_trksid=p4340.l2562 if i ever start taking commissions i'll make an announcement but i'm very happy with the way ebay's going currently. as for a pattern, i probably won't be releasing it until i stop selling them. it's pretty complicated and not perfect, and not marked like a normal pattern you'd buy. it'd take a lot of explanation. thanks again for all your kind comments!

As you must have read over here, you should know that they are out there focusing on portraying the brony fandom positively.
"The secondary goal will be to put a positive image of the Brony community into the culture. The intent is to choose representative bronies for the ad who run in the face of the brony stereotype. So, for example, we'd love to have an active-duty brony stationed overseas read one of the thank-yous, or a doctor, or a businesswoman behind a desk. The underlying message is that bronies are everywhere, everycolor and sex, in every walk of life."
Alternatively you can purchase digital copies for like $2 a pop. I'm always puzzled how the fandom as a whole can be so anti-art-theft but pro piracy.
What's your process for creating comics?
W What tips could you give me?
Could you critique me?
I made this comic. It was my first comic and even has some of my first drawings of ponies. I drew pictures, than traced photos of them I took with my phone in Gimp. It took me days to do everything and overcome problems, probably in part 'cause it was my first comic, but all the work made me reluctant to try making another one. Looking back, I see it could be improved, like the the dialogue would probably be better at the top of each panel.
Any tips, critique or other helpful stuff would be welcome

Almost all ponies accounted for, ignoring everyone under 1000, except Celestia. And I'm pretty sure Twilight is overrepresented because of this Ask That guy bit.
*edit: Added Pink Pony to Pinkie's total, which, for some reason, over doubles it. Y U so inconsistent bronies?
*edit 2: This is fun. I added Flutterbitch, Everypony, Lyra, and Gummy.
(/ppboring)Adding on to this, you can also buy them online. No need to track down physical copies, and you get to support the creators.
It's from this, which is about as far from a sadfic as you can get without finding something personally authored by Pinkie Pie. It was written before Luna had lines, so we had to make her character up from scratch; this one ended up making her an anachronistic nerd and shipping her with an abacus.
This was drawn by Yoh Yoshinari, who works for Trigger (and formally of Gainax), and created Little Witch Academia!

From the newest MLP Friends Forever comic, starring Rarity and Applejack. Story by Katie Cook and art by Andy Price.
You can buy it digitally at Comixology
and also at iTunes
Easily the best of the Friends Forever series of MLP comics, and Cook/Price are highly regarded as the best writer/artist combo for the MLP comics.
(/wahaha) The comics are always fun to read, and I highly recommend any fan to pick them up. The stories are great and the writers really get each personality down. That being said while having a place to download them is convenient. I would recommend purchasing them from your local comic shop or buying them digitally over at Comixology.
(/takealetter)I feel like with the yaks they were trying to teach about Global Cultural Awareness, but it falls just a little flat.
It is important to understand that going to a different place on planet earth, can and will lead you to a people with a different culture entirely. Unless you've left your home country and lived abroad for a while, it's really hard to convey just how different "culture" can be. It's like everyone else is using a different Operating System from you.
For example, there are some countries that just don't care about being "on time" to anything. You'll set a party to start at a certain time and people will arrive when they want to, sometimes 1-3 hours late. They have their own internal consistency that this is how everyone does it.
Or there's cultures like Japan where you'd have to be a complete monster to NOT take off your shoes before entering the house.
