and i have to say i'm really proud of you guys! this has been an amazing thread, and i can't help but think that the love is as strong as ever!
I've even noticed the change in /oat/ this morning, people are being nicer, kinder, and everything is in better spirits.
i frikken love you guys, i don't have much time right now to answer alot of stuff, but >>2484672
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.>>2484653
i'd do more kung fu, but i'm putting all my strength and energy to keeping this place alive.
judging by all the responses to this thread, i don't think this place will die anytime soon. it's as young and healthy as it ever was, even if Moony had to kick it's flank to get it to work again.>>2484675
I respect your opinion, but alot of people have been building up tension about alot of things around here, and this drama is a result of the "straw that broke the camels back"
this is healing, it's making us remember who we are and to make us stronger, reminding us of what matters to us here.>>2484641>>2484642
friendship mode is a good mode!>>2484625
i agree fully :)
i love our anons here, and everypony should too, and we do so yay!>>2484616
Gandalf, you are a good guy and i love you, you do contribute to the site.
There have been many times when i wanted to smack you with a wizards staff, but in the end you are a good dude
I love you Gandalf, even if i prefer
Wheel of Time to Lord of the Rings.>>2484610
too much writing, so i'll say that i fully agree with you.>>2484639
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.
Whelp, you are sometimes a pain, but you are truly a good guy, i love you man, and i can't tell you how happy it makes me to make new friends.
I love ya Whelp, and i extend my hoof in friendship to you as well as to anypony who wants it!
