2/8/11 - 2/8/12: A Year of Ponychan, and an Illustrious History Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2513036[View All]

Gather round, Ponychanners! I'm going to tell you a story!

It’s February 8th, and Ponychan has been in existence for exactly one year! So, with that being said, it is now time for me to tell you a little story, also known as “the most complete Ponychan history I’ve ever tried to write or even seen someone try to write.” It’s not done yet, but I’m trying to make it as in-depth and all-inclusive as possible! So far, it’s got almost 3000 words! Now then, let me begin ruining /arch/ with some intense textwalling.

Once upon a time, in the magical land of 4chan...

I'd be a fair mod
But I'd never post with mod tags
and I'd probably only ban people for being bad at paraspriting and such.

>LOL I PARASPRITE YOU! U CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING THE EMOTION OF ANGER
>User was wrapped up and mailed to Vausten for this post

I think I'm a fair judge...

Since when is going to Vausten a punishment? Also, bad paraspriting can really lighten the mood during a shitstorm. I've done it before, instead of hating on each other, they hate you and all the tension melts away as they attack a common enemy.

Plus, fair has nothing to do with the fact that being a mod is scary.

Being wrapped up and mailed to Vausten is like being tied up and thrown into a horny Rancor's pit.
Just ask Geoffry.

And that's not bad paraspriting, that's successful paraspriting.

Oh come on.
Give me another chance!
I won't be as bad as that one guy who linked bestiality, or that one mod who was just plain shitty.
At least let me have the power to ban people in /ef/.

In December, several memorable threads happened. Everypony was looking forward to Christmas time, and a general feeling of cheer was in the air. On /pony/, there was an anonymous gift exchange with a Google Doc and Amazon wishlists that went on for much of the month and even continued a bit into January. On December 14th, a thread (>>/arch/2512056) was made on /chat/ about a mother who owns a bakery and baked cupcakes with a four year old girl while singing an extended version of Pinkie Pie’s “Cupcakes” song. The usual Ponychan silliness was also present, most notably in a thread about snails doing “impure things” on Italo’s hand. Another notable occurence was December 20th-- the Twilight Night on /oat/.

Twilight fans had been making Twilight Appreciation Threads left and right, filling up the board with them in a sort of bandwagon. Usually, bandwagons result in bans for spam, deleted threads, and stickies requesting that the bandwagon be brought to a halt. However, this time around, !!Celestia got in on the fun. He made /oat/ force the Twilight theme and made it forced-anon, with the default name being Twilight Sparkle. He then proceeded to wordfilter each mane cast pony’s name to Twilight Sparkle as well. A few were opposed to the Twilight night, and the Twilight fans referred to this as “Hershey,” a play on the word “heresy.” It was all over far too quickly, but created some good Ponychan memories.

The start of January was marked by drama. Just within the first week, a new poster was scared off from /chat/ after being harshly criticized for having an OC, and a parasprite thread derailed into angry name-calling. Tensions lightened after a while, and perhaps partially as a response to them, !!Celestia created /ef/, a board with considerably laxer rules. /ef/ served more purpose than just being a place where people could vent without fear of banning. It was also a board where people could make threads without fear of these threads being moved elsewhere. The board was the subject of controversy, and /meta/ went aflame upon /ef/’s creation, some even saying they want to leave Ponychan because of it. And, indeed, in its first day, /ef/ was little more than spamming of words that previously couldn’t be said on any other boards. It quickly calmed down, though, and even had a thread that had so much love and >feel in it that it got archived. (>>/arch/2512663)

And then February happened again and Ponychan turned a year old and I made this thread. The end.

Starshine, you're really, really cool. Thanks for this.

So many times, I've thought, "Huh? Where did that one guy go?" or
"Wasn't that a meme? . . . Nah. That couldn't have been a thing that actually existed. My memory's just being stupid. I'm sure. Maybe it was a really small meme and I perceived it as a popular, big thing or something." or
"It felt like everypony but me knew all about that incident of "drama" and that mod and what their identity was and that scandal at that time, but I had no idea what was going on. Just no idea. It made me sad. I felt bad for that mod."

I'll be thinking those less often.

Oh my god, where have you been? I was looking through /arch/ a few days ago, researching and nostalgiaing, and I saw you in a few threads and I thought "man, where has that guy been lately?" I swear I haven't seen you since like August!

So much of the stupid stuff I've posted on the website was posted by a ridiculously imbecilic thirteen years old boy.

I haven't been here in a very long time...

I was dropping by /arch/ for some nostalgia with the close of season two and came across your thread Starshine...

Thank you for including my thread in your accounting of Ponychan history. I miss you so much. I didn't even realize until now.

I've been a Ponychanner since it's creation, and it was great to experience all of this over again through your words.

Starshine, I don't know if you remember me really, but if you read this, email me please.
