I first joined the /b/ pony threads shortly after S1 ended, though I usually just occasionally lurk /pony/ because I haven't watched the show since S4.

Hey. Lurked during S2, stopped lurking after the whole board became bitter from Twilicorn. I stopped watching the show halfway through S6 and occasionally drop in every few months. It's sad seeing this place dry up and die out; I miss the discussions and arguments about new episodes. It seems like this was the only place in the fandom where people had diametrically opposed viewpoints, even with this site's reputation as a "hugbox."

The era of Zamoonda was on the ass end of them.

also this post gets a LOT of things wrong. the wordfilters always existed, the mods were not "afraid" of Zamoonda, and people were not banned just for posting on /ef/.

and holy shit, "shut out members of the /b/ half of the site by Zamoonda's command". I'm actually offended by that part. That's just not true.

otherwise a decent history.

It's been a long time since I've last posted on this site. Everything here seems to have changed so much. Where did /pic/ go? I used to spend days there dumping images.

When ponychan started to go down the shitter, I went over to mlpchan instead, and only came back because mlpchan shut down. So I never saw quite how bad it got. That's the only real record I have of what happened. I do remember the word filter getting more and more severe, but mostly it was getting banned for vague things like having a bad attitude, or being hurtful, or indecent that killed it for me. I do think those who banned me for stupid stuff like that are still assholes, no matter what Zamoonda did to trick them.

>>36829665

I think it went to a place called derpibooru. (Warning: safe space) But mostly people just make pic threads on /ef/ these days since it can be anything. Then everyone argues about wedge issues and forgets about the pony threads.

Sad because I actually like the show quite a lot and now there's very little fan content to enjoy compared to the past. Only thing I got to enjoy now are fanfics and I'll run out of good ones eventually with how little is produced. Only hope I have left is G5 to revive the fandom. Sucks because we started getting lots of great things like Kirin that could have more content. Every time I see how little content there is all over the fandom I die inside.

I guess you just need to take a look around if you believe no one is making fresh fan content from the show.

The introduction of the Kirin blew out the cobwebs on new art posted on EQD and especially on dA where much of what's posted on EQD comes from. There are plenty of artists producing MLP FIM art.

I think Season 8 did more to revive the fan art than a lot of people think. Can't say what Season 9 is going to do or if the predicted Gen5 show will produce the same enthusiasm with new character designs and all.

G5 looks weird from what I've seen. I wish they'd just keep it exactly like G4 but I guess you can only go for so long before you run out of shit to do.

A lot of people got put off by the copyright and trademark stuff. Like yeah I can find great inspiration in ponies and friendship, but if the police are always gonna say Hasbro own everything I create, how can I devote any significant amount of my life to it? Not everyone wants to be an underground fugitive spending more time dodging Youtube's blatant attribution theft than actually creating anything. How is an artist supposed to deal with that?

But then there's the Pink Celestia aka Cadance who pretty much broke the show, and G5 would let them escape that smug cunt of a character. (Until they did yet another wedding special and ruined everything all over again.) So maybe it'll help at least give the idea of the show a chance. I'd like to see Antony C. and Tommy Oliver come back to enjoying the show again. A reboot would let DHX undo some of the big mistakes they've made in the past.

What I'd really like is some non-Hasbro affiliated group do a magical horses cartoon that isn't absolutely eye bleedingly awful.

>>36829669

Honestly G4 looks kind of weird. They're about as far away from horses as you can get. And what's with that super extreme crook at their heel that leads to a non-knee in the hind leg?

>>36829668

Kirin were pretty awesome. ♥ Their horns look silly though.
