LOVE AND TOLERANCE... please read. Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2484012[View All]

Dear /oat/...

It's been almost three weeks since the season finale and it seems that, without a new pony episode every week, a lot of us have forgotten, or have at least put aside, the fundamental concepts that we hold dear here at Ponychan. More and more, I'm seeing a drift away from that pony message. /Oat/ is forgetting how to love; we're forgetting how to care for others.

It's a bold accusation, and it's one that should not be made without some evidence, I think. Just in this past hour, Ponychan enjoyed a little "invisible fiasco." The Equestria Girls song is not quite so popular, it seems, with everypony and for some, it's annoying enough to spur them to leave. I love the song, but that doesn't mean somepony that doesn't like it should be forced to hear it or, if they are against it as a concept, to even see it on the frontpage. "Shouldn't the other ponies be more tolerant of the song though?" Perhaps, but what I witnessed tonight is far more disturbing than that point.

Tonight, I saw ponies threatening to leave over something they didn't like and few, if any, ponies went out of their way to understand them. Are we not the most loving place on the internet? Then perhaps it's time we remember that and started acting like it again. I call this an "invisible fiasco" because I've personally talked to a number of ponies who are upset to the point of leaving, not so much at the fact that there is a song they don't like on the frontpage, but rather that their fellow ponies were so quick to disregard them; so unwilling to show them any love or bother with understanding them. And it hasn't just been tonight either. This, I think, is the the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back." Over the past week or two, I've spoken privately with heartbroken pony after heartbroken pony over the sudden lack of understanding and love their fellow ponies have shown them. The tell me "this used to be the most understanding place on the internet? What has happened to it?" And I can't give them an answer.

Mods, this little paragraph is for you. You always do such a great job for us. Nopony can argue that the mods here are what make Ponychan such a special place. And while we love to have fun with you all, there are sometimes very fine lines between good fun and hurting others. Sometimes, even the simplest things can be detrimental to the feelings of others, and we should do the best we can to recognize that. Tonight's little fiasco was, I think, a good example of that. Not everypony wanted it, and for some it actually made them want to leave! But those ponies were, for lack of a better word, ignored for the sake of the majority and that's just not right. I don't blame you for it, as the situation was difficult to understand, and you know I have nothing but the utmost love and respect for you all, but we must all be cautious of this sort of behavior in the future, myself included. I egged on the video, perhaps unintentionally, but nevertheless, I hurt, even if indirectly, my fellow ponies today. And that, to me, is unacceptable.

Love and tolerance. These words have so much power in them and tonight I witnessed a failure of these ideas. We took so little effort to understand the suffering of others and disregarded our fellow ponies so that we could gratify ourselves. I ask you Ponychan, is that the pony thing to do? What is it again that makes us special on the internet? It's our love and tolerance. And I believe it's still here! But we must, we must be more vigilant. Let us not forget that we are all as brothers and sisters. That we are all the beeest of friiiiiends, are we not? Love and tolerance, my fellow ponies, even if you have trouble relating or understanding, the very least we can all do is offer each other our unconditional love and tolerance, regardless of the situation. After all, at heart, we are all ponies, and that's what ponies do. ♥

i'll say this, reading your posts can be cool and fun at times and i genuinely enjoy the philosophical threads that you, the doctor and some other posters get into, it's cool and awesome to see such thoughts on a chansite about ponies... but your doomsaying about ponychan as if it were a biblical prophecy is annoying.
that being said, it makes you a real person and i wouldn't want you to change. the reason i like this site is because i can read a whole bunch of posts like that and know that whatever disagreements the posters here have is because we're all genuine human beings and we have our likes and our dislikes. every fight that's had on this site is a byproduct of a whole bunch of different people's beliefs and thoughts. i wouldn't like this site as much if everypony here thought the same way about things.

Ponychan can't die...for everypony that won't follow the message, there's always another that will. And while a few ponies (myself included, shamelessly so) do parasprite every now and then, I really think/hope that inside everypony is just getting a little misguided. The message is in there somewhere...it just needs to be brought out again.

Nameponys are scaring the ponies away with their boasting and Im running low on tolerance. I used to come here to see other ponies, but now theres just these same couple guys throwing their underwears and socks all over the place while making this place their new home.

Too many inside jokes and "you-had-to-be-there" memes. You're just effectivily shutting everypony else outside the fandom. I know we're out of material, but still...

This happens all the time on other imageboards, thought. They just show more tough love and less tolerance, so cut the gloomy act.

Love and tolerate the person, but you don't have to love and tolerate the rule breaking.

I can't really comment on anything in this thread because I have no idea what happened. A song on the front page?

Navigate away? I don't usually spend more than 2 seconds on the front page. Were people fighting over this song?

All I can do is continue to love and tolerate, and try to be an example.

Honestly, I haven't noticed anything of this sort. I've only been here a couple weeks, but it seems to me that it's a lot easier to break into the community here than anywhere else I've ever been.

Even when I'm anon (having a name just makes a continuous conversation easier), I get plenty of "attention", love and tolerance.

If somepony is anonymous, then I treat each post as if it may be a different person, which just means conversations are more like one offs, and less like a conversations. That's the price of being anon, I guess.

As much as I'm okay with the general love and tolerance thing, I honestly do feel like a lot of people are raising drama about nothing.

You don't like a thread or somepony's comment? Just ignore it. That's what I do.

Going all "BAAWWW! I DON'T LIKE THIS! MAKE IT GO AWAY OR I'LL LEAVE FOREVURRR!!" won't solve anything, and it will only annoy people and cause drama.

You know, the exact same thing that's happening right now.
Drama and fear mongering in the number one thing that drives communities apart, IMO.

i don't really notice it at all, i understand the feeling of being new and not being caught up can scare some away, too "insidery"

but we won't deny you understand, we will try to have everypony caught up to speed, and nopony will ever shun you away, we love our anons and our tripponies. And sure the named guys talk to eachother alot and have inside jokes, but that's because we had time to build relationships and make friends, but give yourself time and you can definitely see yourself become more included.

>>2484634
oh Nature Blossom we don't hate you, i'm sorry you were feeling so miserable, and we do love you. But your doomsaying and pessimism didn't help with the atmosphere of the site, but i can't change who you are, that is for you to decide. I respect your viewpoints as i hope you respect mine, but we all need to know when to stop talking and start listening.

We still love you, i remember seeing you soo long ago and you were a cool guy. And i believe that you can be the loving and happy guy that i knew back then, and we all need love and encouragement.

I love you nature blossom, and while sometimes i feel like smacking you, i truly do care about you. *hugs*
please don't be sad. there are those who still love you, including me.

If we were perfect, we wouldn't need love, we couldn't feel pain or pleasure.

our imperfection allows us to enjoy everything that ponies have brought us as well as bicker and argue. Imperfection is harmonious that way.

I guess so.
The problem probably lies at both sides.

I do tend to act like a jerk sometimes(Despite disliking other jerks, ironically) but I have to say it does sadden me to see people get upset here.
I also want ponychan to be a place where people can just be friendly and caring towards each other.

I don't HATE. I dislike. You were annoying to me from the beginning. And if I ever tried to give my opinion, you just ignored it. The only reason I disliked you is that you only gave off to people who were positive or agreed with you. It was like "I'm going to be an attention horse to a limit here". I'm sorry but I was giving truth. Also you saying "I'm going now" is not true because you will be back. You say this Ponychan is changing but you will be here. Lurking. I know you.

When did you ever think of me as a friend when you barely talked to me in the first place or ignored me, eh?
>>2484653
If it died? I would go back to Facebooking sometimes, having a life by going out a lot, finish Homestuck as it is, enjoy life. 4chan is bullshit and I'll never go back there. It's a horrible place. And I would be really sad Ponychan was gone because this is the only forum I make real friends and is like a clean 4chan to me.
>>2484654
You are not understanding what is going on. There was a lot of emotions already. But when some people said they didn't like the song. A lot of the ponies were being massive flankholes about every single person. Acting like a jerk. We finally let out steam and everything is better now. I don't know why you are having such a problem.
>>2484675
I don't really see this as drama. And once again, not understand the original post. It wasn't "leaving forever" It was taking a break from a site because how the people WERE acting to your opinion what WAS the problem. Yes I can ignore it but it hurt ME to see how fellow ponies were acting. K?
>>2484672
...I don't even see this ever. Maybe with a fellow of some names I can think of that do that but rarely. I dunno what you mean.

I forgot what I was going to write else. I'm surprised this went to /arch/ But I think it's good.

I'm not saying anything mean in these posts. I'm just speaking. Just so ya know.
