>Unbanning steam twist.
How on earth this became a meme i have no idea, i never found him all that funny.>>9560>also wasn't one of the original purposes of /chat/ was that more political or controversial threads could go there as opposed to /oat/?
That and so they wouldnt drown out the pony threads, same issue we had with serials really, which is probably the reasoning for /gala/'s creation now that i think of it.
But then we had the absolutely not completely braindead
idea of making /oat/ the go-to board for everything without removing / repurposing /chat/ in the process because people didnt want to go to a different board to chat
about their day and "pony-related" was for some reason a completely alien concept to grasp for most people at the time.*
Which then had the knock on effect of killing what little pony related topics we had on /oat/ to the point that we have about one in a blue moon that really gains any traction.
*-Meanwhile other sites shit out pony related content on a daily basis since their inception and no matter how goddamn much i encourage it there's a severe lack of creative spark amongst the people here that drives me nuts.
Even a shitty "open paint and draw your favorite pony in a minute." thread gets about 3 serious replies before it derails into people just talking amongst themselves or just plain dies.
I mean, shit like pic related even, it takes like two seconds to make after watching the episode in question yet the only episode related threads we get when they air are on /pony/ where they simply critique it instead of using the new material in an interesting way.
