Site changes and stuff !!Fluttershy 36823955Sticky[View]

Hello my little ponies,

You might have heard we've been talking over some changes in site structure. Most of this wont effect you guys but here is the stuff that will.

/pony/'s role on the site will be expanded to include all content related to the show. This isn't a big change but we're hoping it will bring a bit more activity here.

We've also made some changes to the appeals process. I know you guys don't cause as much trouble as the other boards but I'll include it anyway.
User appeals for bans exceeding 24 hours will now be handled by committee of two moderators chosen by first availability, with the admin acting as tiebreaker.

Any moderator may also call for a review of any moderator action they feel requires it of their own accord, again handled by two moderators and an admin.

In both appeals and reviews the moderator who took the action will be consulted but not be placed on the committee.


Also we're looking for more site staff, so if you have any suggestions let us know.

!.ZzGrellBs 36824012[View]

>ITT: character design thread/rant

I really liked Changelings but their new designs just are ugly. There's no real color harmony with them.

Take Thorax's design for example. His main body are varying shades of green with a gradient orange where his neck connects with his chestplate. It doesn't look very good since green and orange are neither complimentary colors or analogous. You have to hop the color wheel by one color (yellow) to reach orange.

He has horns (pincers?) that are orange as are the under-ear portions on his head. I'd be for the color unity of it if not for the purple carapace and wings. The eyes are fine since they're meant to stand out, not many ponies have had irises that match their general color scheme before like Pinkie Pie and purple does pair well with orange or green.

But that much purple meshed into his design just ruins what tenuous color balance is happening there. It's a battle of hot colors (the bright green and the orange) fighting with the cool colors (purple/blue) which just makes it offputting.

It's such a damn shame because the simpler designs of the love-eating Changelings are so good. The black holey bodies with the turquoise eyes and matching ripped-looking wings feels like it was designed by someone who had a proper idea of color and good combinations. Even Queen Chrysalis looks good because the green elements to her design nicely pair with the green-blue and black already present in the overall Changeling design aesthetic.

It's probably harder to animate with them though. It may be the same reason Twilight doesn't really wear regalia.
>>36824079
>All they did was slap wings on her and that was it.
They did tweak the rest of her base model to look slightly more like the other alicorns. Basically she's more horse-like and has a bigger horn. It's...a little offputting, especially if you're so used to the original design.

So after almost 4 years, I dug out my old laptop and came across all my saved MLP pictures. I sort of fell out of it after the pure cringefest that was Equestria Girls (though Season 3 was slowly killing my interest anyways). Figured for old times sake, I'd meander through here again. Still see a few names I recognize, which is pretty cool I suppose.

Not that I want to get back into it (if you can't tell by my name, 2011-2014 wasn't a good time for me), but what all of note happened over the last 3 and a half seasons? I know there was a flashback about Nightmare Moon at the start of season 4. And I watched an episode about Twilight, Cadance, and Discord about a year ago for the hell of it (and because Cadance was my waifu at some point)

Do we still hate Merryweather?

Dragons who a previous episode expanded on how being greedy and collecting loot is the key to their exponential growth are in fact a rough and tumble and unpleasant race of creatures in Equestria: who knew?

I can't see what you mean by the characters being 'douchefucks' in that episode since the ponies were there to provide moral support to Spike, the character who often is the butt of jokes in most episodes in contrast to the main ponies.

The point is that the episode started off hinting at something actually meaningful for Spike, and then just turned into a color-by-numbers "dumb teenage bullies" episode. We didn't learn anything interesting about dragons, we just got "lol dumb teenagers being assholes to Spike XDDD" for 2/3 of the episode.

And yeah, that's kinda what I meant. Spike got shit on much more than usual. And Rarity was horribly exaggerated.

Merriweather keeps forgetting that she's not writing for Spongebob anymore.

>but what all of note happened over the last 3 and a half seasons?
After stopping the Everfree Forest from expanding by returning the Elements of Harmony to the Tree of Harmony, a locked box sprouted from the tree. There was a season long arc where each of the mane six would wind up having their own Element tested and teaching someone else about that Element. This culiminated in the season 4 finale where Tirek, a reimagining of the villain from the first G1 special, stole all the magic from Equestria. Twilight earned her key, the final one needed, by sacrificing all her magic to save her friends including Discord, who had betrayed everyone to Tirek until he himself was betrayed. They opened the box and the mane six were given a temporary powerup that's been labeled Rainbow Power, and they defeated Tirek and returned everyone's magic. The library Twilight lived in was destroyed by Tirek, but the box also made a new castle appear in Ponyville, where Twilight and Spike now live.

Other things that happened in season 4, Daring Do is real, the Apple family and Pie family may or may not be related, Rainbow Dash made the Wonderbolts Reserve, Spike is considered a hero and celebrity to the Crystal Empire after what he did in the season 3 premiere, and another arc that happened was the Equestria Games. Those episodes weren't really connected to one another besides the events happening because of the Games. The CMC were the flag bearers for Ponyville, Dash's team which included Fluttershy and Bulk Biceps (the muscley pony that shouts "YEAH!") qualified for a relay event and won silver at the games, and Spike felt like a failure because he needed help to light the Games' torch and botched singing Cloudsdale's anthem, but redeemed himself after stopping a giant, falling ice cloud and lighting the fireworks at the closing ceremony.

Season 5 revealed that the castle has a map that signals the members of the mane six to go to certain areas of Equestria to sort out friendship problems. The first place they visited was a village where a pony named Starlight convinced everyone to take away their cutie marks (it was kind of a cult). The village realizes they were duped by Starlight and everyone's cutie marks were returned, though Starlight escaped. She appeared a couple times hidden during season 5, spying on Twilight, and returned

Robust, funny opening with good sight gags. I especially liked Rarity's envelope-opening technique.

Sassy Saddles has a great character design, but her voice and dialogue are weird, affected, draggy, and irritating. She sounds like someone from Nebraska trying to fake a generic upper-crust British dialect. Maybe that's supposed to be the point, but the affectation isn't reflected in anything else about the character. (And three vowels in the first syllable of "pony" [pɜowniy] is at least one too many.) Sassy annoyed me so much that it more or less spoiled the episode for me.

EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6 36823954

>Sassy Saddles
This is what happens when you let your child with zero writing skills name a character. You invariably wind up with a shit name that uses the same letter twice for the first letter of their name. There was a le epik ruseman on /mlp/ last year who submitted a list of fake synopses, 3 of them contained a name with that same lazy naming structure.

Your comments made me think, what would people's reaction to Nightmare Moon, a dark alicorn, wears armor, related to Celestia, be if instead of seeing her from the beginning, they didn't use her until one of the recent seasons or the movie? Or heck, she was originally going to go by the name Discord at first, so what would it be like if she was the villain of the season 2 premiere with that name instead of the season 1 premiere villain?

Just little what ifs that ran through my head.

People don't really care about her being an alicorn because at the time, it was just her and Celestia. Just two alicorns. Now they just keep adding more and more alicorns, and they become less and less special with each addition. Similar to what Master Oogway advised, the more they add, the less they have.

And her design isn't particularly edgy-looking, it's a rather nice blend of blacks and purples, with a starry design for her mane and tail, which ties in very nicely with her character. Is it great? Not really, but it's not "edgy donut steel" either.

Good comic. Started out GREAT with the first three, then it crashed and burned though :(

RD's comic, the cheese sandwich comic and the Shining armor one were great. Good characterization, some nice jokes, and good art.

Unfortunately, Twilight's comic really flubbed things up. Apart from a few Lyrabon jokes, it just felt really forced, and phoned in. I LIKE the idea of the Castle being a constantly morphing sapient being that creates new rooms according to the needs of its inhabitants (And fits with the canon of the Starlight/twilight chapter book), but DANG was this done poorly.

the "lock" to open the door was absurd and situational (GOOD THING LYRA AND BON BON WERE THERE!), and the armor... Dangit price, just, that was bad :(

I Like the idea of the castle unlocking and bestowing artifacts on the six as a group for passing trials and growing as individuals, but this was done poorly.

If only they had more comics to do it in, this would have made a great 3 issue arc (Find the room, undergo a trial, break out the armor).



The Wonderbolt arc is dragged down by fosgitt's art, and sadly isn't anything memorable, apart from a couple good jokes (like the surprise one).

Feel free to edit it. Anything to get the point across more clearly.

Either way can we talk about the subject matter, please?

You're kind of comparing two different things there, anon.

People hate "twilicorn" because it was a blatant "BUY OUR TOYS" change, and in the end, it turned out to be exactly that, seeing as it hasn't really changed the character at all, outside of a couple episodes revolving around it. Her wings/princess title are completely irrelevant in 95% of the episodes.

I don't see how it's hypocritical to dislike blatant toy-push changes, while also liking outrageously silly episodes.

Though I do remember a lot of crying and whining when Lesson Zero released, with people claiming that the show has gone to shit now, due to the massive change in tone that Lesson Zero was.

Also, the fandom is not a hivemind.

Also also, Lesson Zero was written before the show even began airing, so it's not "pandering" to anyone.

Loose Ends Heavy Mole 36822776[View]

So Twilight has become a princess, Rainbow Dash is in the Wonderbolts, the CMC have their cutie marks, Rarity has shops in Canterlot and Manehattan, all the major villains of the series have been reformed or banned, and the disparate kingdoms of Equestria are united in a golden age of friendship. Kinda wondering what's left for the pones to do. I mean there are seven EQG movies coming out in 2017 so the writers seem confident on that front. But what of good ol' pony land?

Personally the only thing I can see them doing is spending the season tying up the final loose end, viz. bringing Spike and Rarity together in a sexual consummation which will provide fitting closure to the long-running series (let's face it, six years is old age for most cartoon shows). Of course you won't see their coitus on-screen--we've learned over the years that the writers at Hasbro are masters of implication. Just as a pair of meteors was used to symbolize the deceased status of Applejack's parents, and conjured visions of their horrifying immolation in a barn fire, so too will the writers think of a whimsical method to signal Spike and Rarity's gritty copulation without forcing it directly on the kids. Perhaps a sweaty buckball game is taking place outside.

I imagine there will be an episode where Discord comes to bestow veiled sexual advice on Spike. It'd be the perfect opportunity for a song and maybe a Jim Carey reference. Maybe one of the pets catches him in the act--Angel?--and Spike has to go through some whacky antics to keep the bunny from divulging the secret to Fluttershy.

Or maybe it can be a celebrated occasion with one of those stained glass windows with allusions to Indiana Jones? That'd be a good way to end the series.

Anyways what do you guys think? What the hell are they going to do now?

Not at the time that they chose, no.

At the time they chose was wrong because of how they did it. You can make her an alicorn just fine at the time if you make it out to be just the next step of progression rather than this amazing end goal that she achieved.

#Spoiler
Season 6
The season's theme is "Explore Equestria".
Episode title: Flutter Brutter. Definitely the episode where Fluttershy's brother makes an appearance. Expected to air early in the season, at least before June 7th.
A picture was shown of Pinkie, Rainbow Dash, and Maud at Manehattan. Very likely an actual screencap.
What was reported from Toy Fair 2016:
>During the Toy Fair 2016 closed door press event, a new season 6 animatic with a griffon named Gabby was revealed. It was strongly hinted that griffons could get cutie marks, and the episode revolves around that.
>And joining her, there were apparently some new dragon chracters in the slide. We heard rumors they were Hearthswarming based, but can't confirm that. One looked female.
>New Hearthswarming Episode Song Details:
>Background ponies team up with mane 6 to decorate>Derpy dropped some boxes, annoyed Rarity, plopped a Christmas star on her head, then hid in a tree branch
>All the mane 6 and CMC Sing
>Christmas dragons
Chiara Zanni, VA of Daring Do, has said that she recorded an episode back in July.
John de Lancie was involved in recording at least one episode, and that seems likely to be a two parter.

All things come to an end. I know it's scary but... It's gonna be okay. The show will live far beyond its final breath thanks to it's unexpected fan base. We're all here for each other.

I want to imagine it'll happen all over again with the creation of Generation 5, in our relatively far future, but too much has been established for this to occur...

But I suppose I can be happy with a small cult following.
I like this place enough to stay on-board, and here I've met some of the best namefags ever.

I personally wouldn't have the show end any other way. To many shows pull the "Oh, we done a bunch of lessons that we could lesson to realize we done the big lesson all along. Time for everything to continue on as normal only you don't get to heckin watch".
