Welcome to Fillychan, where everything Filly, Funtasia, or both, is what it’s all about. Whether you’re having high expectations for the show, are interested in learning more about it, or are just a random bypasser, we wish you welcome.

It’s basically a serial thread at Ponychan, and not really its own forum or board. For those who are primarily experienced with 4chan or general forums, quick step introductions are at >>1017061, and other than that, you’re free to post here and try to talk about whatever you find fitting.

>I will support a licence change to something less free
That is not really an option.

Let me be quite clear here, since this is fairly important:

Wikia content is licensed under a ShareAlike license, which means you are allowed to reuse any content from Wikia as long as you relicense it under a similar license. Licensing it under a "less free" license would be potentially illegal. Therefore, I won't do that.

But even if I did, that wouldn't really have much of an impact on what that warning text informs editors about. Actually, it would make the situation worse. It says that you cannot include any material that you lack permission to include. Using a less free license actually limits what kind of material we can include even more!

It is fairly important to inform users that you are not allowed to use text from nonfree sources without permission except for recognized fair use cases like quoting. Perhaps that text is indeed scary and bad at communicating the information above, in which case I can write a new copyright information text to replace it. In English. I'm not going to try to write new texts for every single language variant of MediaWiki, because there are lots.

Okay, okay, I wasn't really aware that unfree licences placed stronger limits on it. All I really remember is the overly strong Linux focus on being open-source, to the point where I've seen Linux distributions that lacked media players (á la VLC), and Linux programs you had to recompile yourself (some of them also available on Windows), and had become convinced that something being freely available meant complying to very tough requirements that severed its quality.

>It is fairly important to inform users that you are not allowed to use text from nonfree sources without permission except for recognized fair use cases like quoting.

Filly Wikia has had a long-running policy of pretending that the image uploader's copyright tab does not exist, and the only rule we ever really followed was "Don't use pictures of fans or fan toy collections without permission from them". Under those circumstances, being reminded of the existence of copyright requirements is an unusual feeling to get.

>Perhaps that text is indeed scary and bad at communicating the information above, in which case I can write a new copyright information text to replace it. In English.

Okay, that should be a pretty good solution. But one undemanding question: Would the rewritten copyright info be copied to other MediaWiki UI languages (and remain in English), or would all bothered user(s) be required to switch to American English?

I've put up a little character discussion on Fillychan, still trying to get posting to work on this site. If you can read this, it's fixed.

Yep, I can read it, so it must have been fixed! And there are two replies to the Fillychansite thread as well as per yesternight.

To get overly technical: I don't know which kinds of errors you've come across, as there's a multitude of possible error messages, but I know that there's been problems with getting posts longer than ~2,500 letters through, but I assumed it had been fixed by the time of >>2529280. If I get overly conspiratorical as well, I have thought for myself that broadband providers could object greatly to a website that has such a board as /anon/, but I was expecting Russia or similar places to object to that, and not a country like yours.

They don't. Probably just me clicking something wrong. Basically, I'm only seeing a 'New Reply' button, which kind of confuzzles me. What's wrong with just 'submit'? And there's also no option to reply to a post, from my perspective. Need to click on the number instead of the old button, apparently. Weird.

Aaah, I think I understand at least that problem a bit better now. I was unaware that there were posters who actually used that Reply button, heh (I had assumed most people clicked the numbers already). I've been spared of that problem since I've used the perceived-to-be-clunky solution of writing the >'s and the seven-digit number manually when I write a post.

>Basically, I'm only seeing a 'New Reply' button, which kind of confuzzles me. What's wrong with just 'submit'?

On Ponychan outside of Fillychan, it's been fairly common for posters to not be aware that they were on a board's front page instead of inside a thread, and what was meant as a reply, instead became a new thread altogether. It's often been played for fun once it has happened, but I presume that they wanted to reduce the problem a bit.

Hopefully things are going better for you now!

Good afternoon, this is Exohasard with the Afternoon Filly News. Our stories from the past week:

• Studying Filly Mermaids' magazines and most of its blindbags has led me to a surprising conclusion. We have for eighteen-ish months believed that the order of Mermaids' releases was first-set, Pearl/Pink, and Glitter. Now I've found that there's never really been a first-set, arguably except for two toy sets; so the order is now Pearl, Pink and Glitter.
• A seller on eBay show a character list from a 2014 Filly Mermaids release in Italy, based on the Pearl editions. The special thing about it? 6 exclusive Fillys, none of them appearing to have a publically available bio.
• A new navbox has been copied and mildly edited from the Wikia WikiGardener, known on the Filly Wikia as Navbox Gardener. Chiefly, it allows for multiple groups in the navbox body, vastly changing how toyline pages like those for Filly Mermaids and Filly Butterfly works.
• A few details in Lynn's Sammelband bio seems to be about when she finally learned how to do magic to some degree. Her hair change, in addition to her happiness from doing her first spell, was a change done for Filly Witchy Black Edition, which was released only some weeks before the October 2013 trailer. Her motto also says to believe in yourself when you just can't do things right.
• Magic's boat is in fact clickable on the Filly Fairy map, resulting in a tiny Wiki subregion article.

Yeah, we probably don't need to worry all that much, but it's good to try to use images with permission as often as possible. Most of the images used on the wiki should fall under fair use anyway.

>Okay, that should be a pretty good solution. But one undemanding question: Would the rewritten copyright info be copied to other MediaWiki UI languages (and remain in English), or would all bothered user(s) be required to switch to American English?

They'll probably have to switch to English. Since the content is in English, I guess most people will use that as an UI language and I do believe it is also the default language for everyone. I guess I could go into each individual translation and paste the English message but that would be a bit tedious and I suspect it may interfere with the extension I have installed to automatically keep the MediaWiki translations up to date.

So I asked Ratty about Brohoof's bureaucratships on the Filly Wiki, through an FuD comment section. While he quickly said yes to them resigning as bureaucrats, I think he found it highly demeaning that there were ever any beliefs that he could have had bad kinds of fun on the Wiki, and I am as we're speaking trying to save any sort of positive views that the most core fandom (me, Skundi, Zejgar and Time Lord) could have in his/their eyes.

>>2529293
>Did they just forget to post their videos?
Looking at some WorldScreen pages, I get this feeling that they call of their show articles "videos", even those that doesn't have videos.

>Most of the images used on the wiki should fall under fair use anyway.

Somewhat unfortunately, I have no real idea where the borders for claiming 'fair use' go, so I've been cautious about applying fair-use to the Wiki's pictures at all.

>and I do believe it is also the default language for everyone.

By the looks of it, the first time I opened the Filly MediaWiki, the interface defaulted to Norwegian (Bokmål). Perhaps it could have been from earlier looks at MediaWiki, such as for looking at possible skins, or perhaps it really was a defaulting.

So for some very quick news from the past one or two weeks:

• Zejgar recovered English character bios from the long-missing Ice Fairy site, and I've been including them on the Filly Wiki. I also updated the Fairy Fillies page to also include representation from Ice Fairies.
• BRB confirmed in a Twitter chat with Greyfeather that the Funtasian writing system is not total gibberish. It's been tried to figure out how to decipher them, but a 100% sure solution has not been found yet.
• I now have [url=exohasard.tumblr.com]a Tumblr[/url]! It's not Filly-specific, instead focusing largely on the European and preschool cartoon businesses, combined with mid-powered punches at FiM at times.

Time Lord, are you still alive? Your constant breaks aren't funny anymore.

But it's in the screening section and not the article section...

>Somewhat unfortunately, I have no real idea where the borders for claiming 'fair use' go, so I've been cautious about applying fair-use to the Wiki's pictures at all.

There aren't really any hard limits on it, which is what makes it so tricky to judge what falls under fair use.

>By the looks of it, the first time I opened the Filly MediaWiki, the interface defaulted to Norwegian (Bokmål). Perhaps it could have been from earlier looks at MediaWiki, such as for looking at possible skins, or perhaps it really was a defaulting.

Well, it went to English for me.

>>2529295
I've responded to these concerns at length on the other thread, so I'll just say here that I think you should take it more easy.

RaichuWizDomCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2529297

Hmm... going by the posts on the other chan, it seems like we need something fresh.

How about some OC discussion? Guidelines, examples, do's and don'ts?

>1888085
>How about some OC discussion? Guidelines, examples, do's and don'ts?
Hmm, I could at least move the topic for a while.

Guidelines:
• You are allowed to make pegacorniuses, since Stars and a few other Fillys made them eligible to be normal citizens.
• You can make your own Filly brands for your OC, but for the love of Sparkle, don't pick dragon features for your Filly, in part as Simba and possibly also Dracco have very different brands for dragon purposes.
• Fillys with mysterious backgrounds are only allowed if either, 1) It's a part-time character that other characters are trying to find out of, or 2) At least one hint is given as to what those mysteries are about. In category 1, you are also forbidden from shipping that OC until it becomes an established character with an open personality.

Examples:
<I'm pretty sure this picture counts, as drawn by Four Leaves. It was even pre-Stars.

Do's:
• The softer the coat colour on the Filly, the better.
• On a large majority of Fillys, the hair and mane has the same haircut. Pick hair and mane styles that are pretty similar to each other.
• Shadowing, even if it's just applying a lighter or darker colour shade on random parts on the body, is recommended.

Don'ts:
• Avoid the following colours like you had Wranglum on your tail: Pitch black (dark grey is allowed), strong red, the most steely colours, most pastelle colours at all, and be cautious with beige.
• Filly crowns are like large tiaras. Crowns that goes all the way around the head are connected with Princesses and royal Fairies.
• Fillys with talents for fighting or world-saving are strongly adviced against, since no world-threatening events has ever happened in Filly.

>>2529296
>There aren't really any hard limits on it, which is what makes it so tricky to judge what falls under fair use.
That's probably also the reason why many people apply fair use to anything they ever do, only for them to turn out to be wrong (Copyright takedowns, for one).

>so I'll just say here that I think you should take it more easy.

I've had a huge mood upswing throughout the day, so I'm at least assuming that I'm currently in the "Taking it easy" mood. I'm pretty moodsick, more or less. Hopefully this thread, Fillychansite and Skype can keep at least some kind of discussions going on for a good while longer!

Which is awkward, especially now it's off the front page, but hopefully it'll get bumped again soon...

>>2529302
So you're somewhat back in action for now? Looks good.

Of course, stuff has happened in the past three weeks, although surprisingly few things:
• The Sternen Riesenrad playset now has bigger-res pictures of it, identifying the set's exclusive Filly as Mira, a brand new Star Filly.
• I've forgot which sources I had for this, but I discovered after some googling around that the Stars Schloss' Butterfly Filly was in fact just a placeholder all along, as Sternen Palass looks near-identical but has Vela instead, so I feel confident that they needed to hide Vela until she was revealed in a magazine about a month and a half ago.
• Well, blokes and blokettes, Skundi wasn't kidding when he was worried that Wikia could impose wild mandatory theme changes at any moment. They changed the page widths and font sizes so much that it can't even fit one-quarter of the text on screen as I could get with the old system on a 1080p mirror. If you witness the same changes, I'll give full and complete support to a Filly MediaWiki, very few holds barred.

I think Fillychansite is also beginning to sail up as a seriously-taken chat site in the Filly fandom, when even RaichuWizDom now posts there some times a week.

>Not much, I just meant that it's what I pieced together as to why the thread's not bumping with every new post. Though if it's not bothering anyone then it's not really an issue!

If any of the last five posts has bumped it, then I guess we won't have all that much to worry about. If none of those five have bumped it, we could begin to get a bit concerned.

>Hm... It occurs to me that, despite Lynn being the only Witchy Filly we've seen about, both Batti and the owl on that site have the pendants that suggest they're Witchy pets. Maybe Witchy Fillies aren't quite the outsiders we've speculated...

Then, who would be the owner Witchy of Battiwigs? Could Wranglum have been a Witchy in his old days, so that it's in Batti's honour to help with his owner(s)'s everyday life.

>>2529303
>Or perhaps there is a darker, more sinister conspiracy afoot and the cupcakes were just a distraction.
Wouldn't that require that Wranglum and Batti had anything to do with (at the very least knowing about) eating the cupcakes? Or Rose and Lynn have some odd schemes planned for their first school year?

>Filluminati confirmed.

Yo, Time Lord, I cordially invite you to the Filluminati chat group on Skype. So far, it has me, Skundi and Zejgar. Since I basically quit writing for FuD two days ago, I can go good for that there's no requirement to write for FuD in order to join it. And since Skundi takes user opinions from existing Filly Wikia editors very seriously, he really wants to get more in touch with you in order to get feedback on his preparations for the Filly MediaWiki, which could in theory be made ready on a few days' notice, given some extra coding and a transferring of articles and pictures.

Skundi, or possibly also me, can get you in the group if you want to.

As long as you give even basic signs of being alive, I guess there's nothing to be too worried about. I have no idea what you've been fighting against for the past month, but I'll give you my support in combatting all the problems!

You haven't been missing out on much public stuff in the past week, and what little that has happened, has mostly occured on Twitter, Fillychansite and Skype. I must admit that it's quite hard to keep Fillychanthread going without you being in your traditional good mood.

Hello again! I think http://www.fillywiki.com/ should be stable(heh) enough to be used for real now. It's been completely spam free for over a month. There's some stuff left to do (like fixing the frontpage), but I think it can probably be done after the content transfer. With the blessing of the regular wiki editors, I'm ready to start transferring content there.

You seem a bit defensive.

It's just strange how there are people trying to hype up a cheap CGI knockoff of MLP, trying to build up a fandom around it, making a Wiki for it and scouring the internet for anything related to the franchise. It's not even airing until sometime in 2016, calm down.

Is this supposed to be ironic though? Some kind of big parody of the FIM fandom? From all that I've seen, this Filly crap is through-and-through, nothing more than a cheap European knockoff of MLP, and the cartoon/toys themselves look incredibly girly and G3.5-ish, the opposite of what FIM made itself out to be, and yet here you people are, acting like it's going to be the next big fandom.

I'm noticing that it's just the same 3-4 people posting throughout a majority of this thread though, so, whatever.

>>2529309
>the anon used the same ol' chan memes that they always use

I didn't know that being curious about a bunch of people hyping over an MLP knockoff is considered a "chan meme".

There are many things in life one can consider strange. Observing something, trying to find as much information as possible, research, analyzing, all of this is the result of dedicated interest.

From all that I've seen, this Filly crap is through-and-through, nothing more than a cheap European knockoff of MLP, and the cartoon/toys themselves look incredibly girly and G3.5-ish, the opposite of what FIM made itself out to be, and yet here you people are, acting like it's going to be the next big fandom.

Interest is not in any way ironic, and could've been there even if Friendship is Magic fandom didn't exist. And pardon me, but I fail to see how "discussing among ourselves in our tiny little corners of the internet" equates in your eyes to "acting like it's going to be the next big fandom". I have to question your ability to read.

Thank you for keeping this thread active.

>a cheap European knockoff of MLP, and the cartoon/toys themselves look incredibly girly and G3.5-ish
Well, you now have no bloody idea what you're talking about. The scenery in Filly Funtasia alone shows that effort has to have been placed in it, compared to FiM's policy of just throwing some trees and highly misplaced buildings in the background and call it a day. Toys are made for the collective market, and there are more male Filly toy characters than there were male toys in all of MLP's generations combined.

Also, considering how MLP 2000's had a much tighter plot than the episodic no-continuity FiM, and Twinkle Wish Adventures was the best of it, I guess I'll be honoured by it.

>the opposite of what FIM made itself out to be

...you're kidding now? You're fucking kidding now? Okay, let's see, Hasbro did for three years consider FiM bad-girly in all of its advertising for it, with such things as toys with zero characterism.

>and the cartoon/toys themselves look incredibly girly and G3.5-ish

FiM nowadays is just a regular Kids 5-9 cartoon anyway, so if you claim that FiM does girls' shows better than everything else, you're completely wrong on so many levels, because FiM is not a girls' show at all.

>I didn't know that being curious about a bunch of people hyping over an MLP knockoff is considered a "chan meme".

I was not amazed by your use of "Absolutely disgusting" with an angry pony on it, or the "forcing a fandom" statement that every one of you bronies claims that this is all about. Now get out of this thread before I call the mods. No, wait, I've already done that. So long.

Opinions.

>Toys are made for the collective market, and there are more male Filly toy characters than there were male toys in all of MLP's generations combined.


Er...so you're trying to argue that because there are more male characters than FIM, that Filly is somehow non-gender-specific? There's pink and purple and sparkles and princesses everywhere. It's definitely girly in the same way G3 is.

>episodic no-continuity FiM


Now that is just objectively false.

>...you're kidding now? You're fucking kidding now? Okay, let's see, Hasbro did for three years consider FiM bad-girly in all of its advertising for it, with such things as toys with zero characterism.


FIM toys =/= FIM cartoon

Well excuse me for being curious about a bunch of people hyping over the CGI remake of G3.5. Go on about your business, I won't bother you.

Hyping up how? It's been at least half a year AFAIK since anyone here tried actively reaching out to bronies in any way (because by now, it's obvious they're typically way too close minded), how exactly are we trying to hype up anything by talking among ourselves in little corners of the internet we've made for ourselves? If you're so very disturbed by this thread's existence, you can go click the little [-] at the top left corner of the thread on the /gala/ thread list and us darn up-hypers will never bother you again.

>Is this supposed to be ironic though? Some kind of big parody of the FIM fandom?

No, we just like cartoons. Considering a lot of bronies are bronies just to jump on the bandwagon of the latest big fad or to be "part of the community", I know this may sound crazy to you, but it's possible to like multiple cartoons. It's even possible to like cartoons for little girls that haven't become "cool" and accepted in the geek mainstream by a large fandom. Wow!

>nothing more than a cheap European knockoff of MLP

It's funny how "cheap" is always the go-to insult. Especially since FF is extremely likely to be more expensive than FiM which is, purely technically speaking, rather low quality Flash animation (Flash is cheaper than 3DCGI) with a high degree of rehashed everything, really low quality backgrounds (those single-color everythings sure look expensive) and animation outsourced to the Philippines. "Knockoff" is also a good one. Magical horses have been a standard fantasy trope for centuries, but not any more, now they belong to HASBRO© and nobody else is ever allowed to use them again, or else. Herp de derp.

>and the cartoon/toys themselves look incredibly girly and G3.5-ish

The fact that you think that is bad makes you the kind of brony that ruined the FiM fandom.

>the opposite of what FIM made itself out to be

No, not really. It made itself out to make people stop dismissing things simply because they are girly, but it seems to have failed by creating the least self-aware fandom ever. Here, have this: https://derpibooru.org/539664

>and yet here you people are, acting like it's going to be the next big fandom.

This one is also a very common complaint when whiny bronies stop by, and that's also curious, because I don't really think any of us expect FF to get a brony-size fandom. I don't think I've heard any FF/Filly fan say so, ever. Yet every brony always says it's pointless to be interested in this since it won't become the next big thing. Are you aware that it is possible to be a fan of things without it having a large fandom? Are you aware that there is such a thing as a small or even a very small fandom which can have fun with their thing of choice without being part of some large "social movement" crap? I know that bronies tend to be bandwagon jumpers, but it's just amazing when you don't even seem to recognize that there are some people who may not be that. That there are some people who may like things because they like them and not simply because they are popular and the new big thing. Nope, inconceivable.

>>2529314
>There's pink and purple and sparkles and princesses everywhere. It's definitely girly in the same way G3 is.
1. You got us there anon, there definitely are no "purple and sparkles and princesses" in FiM, especially not combined in the same character or something.
2. If you think a cartoon featuring those things is automatically bad no matter what, you're never going to get why we exist because you're quite simply too close minded.

Have a nice day!

Citation for "a lot" ? I don't think the FIM fandom became what it is *solely* because of a bandwagon effect. You kinda have to have something really high quality in the first place in order for any kind of bandwagon to begin.

>It's even possible to like cartoons for little girls that haven't become "cool" and accepted in the geek mainstream by a large fandom. Wow!

When said cartoons for little girls look to be incredibly trite and girly (in a bad way), it leaves one confused as to how people are hyped for it.

I don't watch FIM because it's "cool" or "accepted", I watch it because it's a good cartoon.

>It's funny how "cheap" is always the go-to insult.

Because CGI cartoons are cheap and easy to make nowadays? Flash being cheaper has nothing to do with it.

>"Knockoff" is also a good one. Magical horses have been a standard fantasy trope for centuries, but not any more, now they belong to HASBRO© and nobody else is ever allowed to use them again, or else. Herp de derp.


Magical horses have been around for centuries, yes.

Magical horses that come in all sorts of rainbow, pastel colors with a mix of unicorns, pegasi, what have you, having adventures in a magical fantasy world, was done by MLP first. Ergo, Filly is a MLP knock-off. You're deluding yourself if you believe otherwise.

>The fact that you think that is bad makes you the kind of brony that ruined the FiM fandom.

By that logic, Faust is also the kind of brony that ruined the FIM fandom.

>No, not really. It made itself out to make people stop dismissing things simply because they are girly

Except FIM isn't girly in the same way Filly is. FIM isn't making every single character a princess, or having a plot about....stolen cupcakes. Filly is going full-on G3.5 levels of girliness and writing quality. That's not really a good thing.

FIM is only girly in the fact that it features mostly female characters, with an odd episode here and there about dresses or a gala. (Which still end up having exceptionally good writing)

>https://derpibooru.org/539664

Filly is girly in a BAD way. It's going back to the same crap that G3 and G3.5 did, with low-quality writing, cliche characters, overly-saccharine themes, etc. The very things Faust tried to get away from, when making FIM.

So yes, girly is still a bad thing, because more often than not, it ends up meaning that not much effort will be put into it and it will be mediocre at the very best.

>(giant wall of text assuming a bunch of things)

This has nothing to do with bandwagons, so you can stop assuming that to insult me. When this Filly thing first popped up, lots of people started hyping over it and acting like it was going to be just like FIM. Some sort of revolutionary new girls' cartoon that was going to be really cool and awesome and have a big fandom. I'm having a very hard time believing that, seeing as it looks to be no better than G3.5.

>there definitely are no "purple and sparkles and princesses" in FiM

Not what I meant, at all. Filly is not some "for boys and girls" thing, it's blatantly girls-only with their heavy uses of pinks, purples, sparkles, fairydust, you name it...in just about every single toy design.

>If you think a cartoon featuring those things is automatically bad no matter what

I never said that. It just so happens that this cartoon features those things, and in a bad way.

But this argument is going in circles, and nobody's mind is going to be changed it seems, so I'll see my way out. Go on about your business.

>You kinda have to have something really high quality in the first place in order for any kind of bandwagon to begin.
Not really. I can think of many really popular cultural things that are in my opinion quite low quality and many obscure ones that are high quality. Good marketing is more important for huge popularity than high quality in today's media landscape.

>I don't watch FIM because it's "cool" or "accepted", I watch it because it's a good cartoon.

Nah, you dismissing the possibility of serious interest in Filly because showing any such interest means we're "acting like it's the next big fandom" shows exactly what kind of brony you are to me. Sorry.

>Flash being cheaper has nothing to do with it.

Really? Nothing to do with it? You called it a "cheap knockoff", how can it be a cheap knockoff when it's probably more expensive than the thing it's supposedly knocking off? Come on, dude.

>Magical horses that come in all sorts of rainbow, pastel colors with a mix of unicorns, pegasi, what have you, having adventures in a magical fantasy world, was done by MLP first.

Yeah... no. Do you think MLP predates this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_EDBM1tOEo

>By that logic, Faust is also the kind of brony that ruined the FIM fandom.

Why, because she also disliked the old toys and cartoons because they were girly? Please, find me a quote where she explicitly says she disliked them because they were girly. Because all I've seen is her saying the exact opposite when it comes to girliness.

>FIM isn't making every single character a princess

Yeah, there aren't really that many princesses in Filly, there's a bunch of characters with other royal titles and most of them actually have no title at all.

>or having a plot about....stolen cupcakes.

It's not even about stolen cupcakes, that's just a minor point of the episode, the main part being the paranoia resulting from the made up "monster" spiraling out of control and it'll probably end with some kind of moral about how lying is wrong. It's been obvious since the very first trailer and it's been even more confirmed recently. I'm not sure how so many people watched that trailer without realizing that since it seems pretty obvious if you pay any kind of attention to what's happening.

>FIM is only girly in the fact that it features mostly female characters

Yeah, and in the fact that it was explicitly meant to be girly. Here, let me refer you back to that quote again: http://www.themarysue.com/lauren-faust-on-girls-entertainment/

>It's going back to the same crap that G3 and G3.5 did, with low-quality writing, cliche characters, overly-saccharine themes, etc.

I'm not sure how you can judge the writing when we only have a small part of an episode to watch and short clips of another, especially since it seems you missed something pretty obvious in what we do have. Really, do you think someone could properly judge the entirety of FiM's writing from a 3 minute clip if I picked one out from a random episode? And how do you know how cliche the characters will be? One of the main characters have zero spoken lines so far. If you seriously think you can tell that such an important character will be cliche from a few shots of him standing in the background, I don't even know what to tell you. As for the last part, if it's a cute and girly show, I'm all for it. I don't require it to have some kind of grimdark undertones or some other crap like that to like it. If that means it'll be "just like G3", then that in itself is not really a problem for me. I'm not going to judge Filly Funtasia (or for that matter, G3) without giving it a proper chance.

>So yes, girly is still a bad thing

And there you have it. I like girly cartoons and it seems you don't. That's okay, everyone likes different things, and the world would be boring if it was otherwise. Just ignore us weird people who like cute cartoons for girls and go watch something manly.

>it ends up meaning that not much effort will be put into it and it will be mediocre at the very best.

Come on, if they really aren't putting much effort into it, they wouldn't still be working on it after delaying it by 2 entire goddamn years.

>I'm having a very hard time believing that

Believing that it'll have a FiM-size fandom? I don't think any of us believe that either.

>Filly is not some "for boys and girls" thing, it's blatantly girls-only

Yeah, it's a girly thing for girls, without any pandering for people who want super manly content in their cute horse show. I think that's an excellent thing.

>I never said that. It just so happens that this cartoon features those things, and in a bad way.

You haven't even explained what's so bad about its girliness besides a vague reference to "bad writing" that's really quite impossible to even judge at this point.

'Tis a good point. I think the "don't judge a show by its trailer" thing is aided by https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cADNQkY9abo [Embed] (a FIM S1 trailer) too.

I think we should take care not to feed trolls though. There are still Bronies who think that FIM has had "exceptional writing" from S1 to today, but many have more criticisms than that one Anon seemed to, and this thread's over half way down page 2 of /gala/ now, so I think it's fair to assume that anyone "coming across" it is looking for something. I could be wrong, but I'm certainly suspicious.

By the way, you didn't respond to my query up here: >>2529310

I'd like to move all the stuff from the old wiki, make a frontpage and in general get it ready for regular use. (Exo's started a bit with the frontpage at http://www.fillywiki.com/wiki/Test_for_front_page_functions ) I think it's stable enough to use, but I don't want to move forward from this point without the approval of all the major wiki contributors.

Time Lord, I've been told that there's been, let's say, a death in your family, but there are some urgent enough Filly matters that this has spun not just to Filly Wiki, but even to one other community as well. And that community happens to be Fillychanthread. This very thread.

I can honest to Sparkle not get anywhere close to actually keeping the thread alive with a decent posting rate, including that RaichuWizDom has to some degree found Fillychansite too, and you've taken a month off from almost all Filly things. "Bronies" has become a foulword in the rest of the Filly community after such things as Tommy Oliver's "so long" video opened our eyes to true beauty, and Ponychan has practically become "4chan with cherry flavour", with such trolls as the one that has tried to troll for the past few days, and early S5 even threw Greyfeather off the bronydom due to poor writing.

At least six new Fillys has been discovered in the past month, and I cannot write articles about them on the Filly Wikia due to its unholy font problems. Basically, the plan is to transfer Fillychanthread over to an archive place on Fillychansite (Whether it'll continue to be active, or if it'll be locked to serve as an archive, is still an open question.), and to transfer all articles from Filly Wikia to Filly MediaWiki so that Filly MediaWiki can be opened to the public within a day and a half. I can't manage to be patient anymore. I'll give you two days to provide your stances on those two matters, or they will proceed forward without having your explicit consent to them.

I am basically trying to save the Filly fandom here. It cannot live with how things are at the time of writing.

Sorry for the absence, really. It's just that I'm not that into the toy side of things, and even on the 3D angle I don't think I'm qualified to give any real remarks. I still can't replicate Filly eyes reliably, for example. I do check these threads on a near-daily basis, but I just can't think of stuff to talk about.

Maybe another fanfic would help? Sequel to Filly Cupcakes, showing Twilight Sparkle and maybe Edward, to avoid breaking non-existent canon?

I did have a fanfic well into writing (six months so, in fact), but it crashed hard after that whole situation with me and Four Leaves, and is still unfinished early in the final chapter.

>Sorry for the absence, really. It's just that I'm not that into the toy side of things, and even on the 3D angle I don't think I'm qualified to give any real remarks.

Although all activity is appreciated, you weren't the guy we were missing the most (Is that a compliment or an insultment?); Greyfeather has been absent too for some days for job reasons. There is now a full month or more between any FF news, so we've used the toys as a necessity to still discuss Filly things. The first sentence of a two-week old unpublished FuD article draft by me, read along the lines of "This month [in May] in Filly Funtasia, nothing has happened. Now over to our toys and technicals correspondent!"

>but I have started over on the Filly model, the main body was done pretty quickly, but pony fics and cover art kinda diverted my attention away from it again. I'm planning to work on it though the weekend, I'll post a pic here to show the progress.

I guess getting body done quickly is a plus. Also, the pic posting doesn't appear to have succeeded; Do you use the regular post form or the more fancy "quick reply" form that was turned on by default after the merger?

>>the pic posting doesn't appear to have succeeded

I meant I was going to post a pic once I was done with the tweaking. In the meantime, this is what I have now. Pretty obvious it needs work, but this was done based on the previous mesh, with some new topology. You can see the lines on the legs now all follow the line down the body and into the hooves, so this one doesn't have a heel area like the last one did.

Now's about the time I'm going to get some show reference pictures to work from and fix the obvious ugly bits, it should just be pulling verts at this point. The mane, tail, crown, teeth, and wings, all those are still intact from before, can be adjusted once the body's done, same with the rig (I hope; face rig might be a bit harder to reuse). Colouring will be done from scratch again, though.

>>2529325
>>Seems good. Are you still learning new stuff as you go along?

Well, after some closer looks at the latest trailer, and especially Fabian's antics, I learned that the 3D models do follow the 2D illustrations of Filly and the legs can straighten entirely, so taking out the heel area makes it more show accurate.

After a day of getting mostly nothing done, I learned that weekends are bad to plan anything, lol.

And after about three hours of tweaking, I learned that just pulling verts can still be a drag, especially around the eye area. I'm having trouble figuring out the angles and proportions of the face in general.

But in terms of modelling techniques, I did manage to do all this in box modelling instead of poly modelling. That makes it easier to get the volumes and if you follow some simple rules, it doesn't mess up the topology. You don't need to build up a cube shaped like a sphere from scratch, let's say. Whereas with poly modeling you make the surfaces, build the strips, try to attach them all, and hope you didn't miscount anywhere as you try to pull everything into the proper shape.

I also now have reason to suspect that the eyelashes are indeed separate meshes, but I cannot quite confirm if they're animated using blend shapes (so 'by hand', basically) or bone driven. There's this one frame when Battiwigs is dizzy in the first trailer, and you can see his right eyelash clipping through his face while his eyelids are still normal. That's kind of a giveaway, I think.

Trying a more standard way to do shoulders, but the problem area in the first version is still sort of a problem here. I think the show cheats on that a bit, too, but I'll tinker around with it more, see what comes up.

Included is the current version, with the problem area in the shoulders highlighted. You have to imagine that it needs to rotate, which is going to cause stretch in one of those squares. We'll see what the afternoon brings.

Well, here's what I ended up with. Face looks better now, the shoulders are still a pain. I think I ended up making things uglier with the adjustments, honestly. Not sure how I'm going to fix it now, probably delete the arms and redo them again. The legs are a a little wonky, too. I'm gonna need to go over the trailers again, there's gotta be some trick I'm missing.

Anywho, there's some updates for ya. Same time next week, maybe, here's hoping something pops up.

I happen to know of some new Filly poses that hasn't been made much public yet... but I think they were in a much too low res (~200x180 px-ish) that they could be much usable to you.

That's what we're all hoping for. Norbøll is cited on that she will answer the FuD questions (including yours, perhaps...?) in a few days, which could provide some days of material depending on which time periods she can answer to. And I'll be doing an E3 thread on Fillychansite with partially live comments/replies/reactions by me.

If it is so that you are/were worried about a colourised theming for the Filly Wiki, which you may or may not be, I think the solution to that is pretty simple.

There are four themes currently installed on Filly Wiki, and the default one is a mildly modified version of Vector. If you go to the preferences and switch it to Monobook, you'll get a look virtually identical to pre-2011-ish Wikipedia, and it's very black-on-white with grey at that. Basically,

is what I've estimated (by testing it out, that is) that it would look like for you.

Looks like it's going well. I'm glad you're still into it!

>I assume I need to try to act patiently now.
Patience is nice.

Still not sure what, if anything, is helping me right now, which makes it hard to work out what I should do next. Generally my motivations returns given time, but it's taking a while and I'm not really getting anything done at the moment.

That's kind of you.

I do have reservations about the current scheme, specifically the boldness of the colours used, but to offer proper feedback I think I'd need to make a mock-up of a different suggestion and I can't really get my head around how to go about that right now.

You can go ahead if you like. I have no idea how long I'm going to take.

We can always count on RaichuWizDom to have some sort of art project going on, which is a great thing for our fandom.

>I do have reservations about the current scheme, specifically the boldness of the colours used, but to offer proper feedback I think I'd need to make a mock-up of a different suggestion and I can't really get my head around how to go about that right now.

Then I can do temporary measures in the meantime, and I've tried to apply milder colours on two parts of the front page.

>That's kind of you.

Thank you *smile*.

>You can go ahead if you like. I have no idea how long I'm going to take.

Skundi has accepted your go-ahead and is planning the article transferring for Sunday afternoon-ish. Our grand opening is now less than a week away, from what I presume of it.

>Still not sure what, if anything, is helping me right now, which makes it hard to work out what I should do next. Generally my motivations returns given time, but it's taking a while and I'm not really getting anything done at the moment.

Skundi appears to me to be frightened by his idea that I could manage to scare you away from the Filly fandom by one poor comment of mine, not unlike in the Four Leaves accident, so I feel a bit strangled in what I can write in this post. But speaking of discussion places, Ponychan is a pretty public place, but I am readily available on more private places too, such as E-mail.

I may never have been much of an expert on pets, so my participation in private conversations would be by virtue of that I've considered you a good friend throughout the 20 months of the fandom of our beloved Fillys. After all, FiM has taught us a lot of friendship morals, often of the "With friends, you can overcome absolutely everything." kind. Zejgar and me even re-discovered a batch of Hasbro's old "Viewing Guides" from the 2010 episodes, about things that could be discussed with the younger viewers after they watched an episode, and friendship was a very recurring theme throughout them. Also, I have experiences from that I got through a pretty hard depression alive during autumn last year and that I could at least give small advices on how to get through similar things.

Of course, it's not my intention to force you into one-on-one chats. Although, if you ever get a feeling of that I am the kind of person who can help you to get through it, here's my visitation card *Hands you a visitation card with [email protected] on it*. I may be cold as an ice cube, but I am a very fair man, and like to help friends of mine.

No, I told you that maybe she doesn't want to go into detail about it publicly and that you should respect her privacy by not prying here too much. You were the one who brought up that other thing, not me. Seeing as how my repeated pleas that you stop posting things from our private chats publicly has apparently fallen on deaf ears, it appears I was correct in worrying that you might not respect people's privacy.

Hey, everyone.

Just thought I'd hop in with a quick update on Edward and the like. I've been focusing more on Synfig and ponies the past few weeks, which is why I haven't posted on here quite yet. However, I've reached the Synfig milestone I was aiming for, sort of, and started on a humanoid character in Blender this time; Ash from Pokémon. The idea was to make the anatomy (especially shoulders) for a human first, get some practice in modelling done so I know what to look for in non-human models. That's what most people do, or recommend, I think.

But then my laptop went a little kaput. The past week or so I've been trying to get things working properly, I now have a workaround that allows me to do the usual stuff on it. So there's been a practical delay on the human model, but Synfig is looking good and I'm probably going to contact the people on the official forums there to see what I can contribute. I've got material for that, and might post a little YouTube link here once it's done, to show the proof of concept and ask for feedback. But that's the 2D side of things.

The plan for 3D art right now is to finish the human model, not necessarily with full textures, but at least try out some new techniques for the eyes that will hopefully work on MLP pony models, and then replace the arms on Edward, after which it's just rigging, texturing, facial shapes, stuff I already know.

So, sorry for the radio silence (again), but here's hoping that once it's done, I'll be a little more qualified to comment on the 3D modelling side of things. Might just try and make some vector illustrations of Filly, just to see how it looks.

Anyways, now y'all know. Take care.

That's cool, thanks for the update! Good to know how you and your art's doing.

Well, the thread seems pretty dead and has made it to page 7, so I'll go ahead and request /arch/.

While it petered away at the end there, this was an excellent thread that saw people get to know each other, share artistic projects, start 2 wikis, found a new 'chan, and get excited over the topic.

Goodnight Fillychan thread, you were impressive!
