#1209873 "Teen Swag :]" Is down! I repeat, it is down!

Posted by Kitty Cat Moonshire on 24 February 2013 - 07:05 PM

This looks more like a General Discussion topic, as it isn't directly related to bronies? I'm moving it there for the time being :3

It's all cool with me :) You're the boss :)

Oh, and I just found out that John de Lancie voices discord?

How awesome is that? :DDDD

Why did no one tell me? :(



Yes! May the swaggots crash and burn for their crimes against humanity!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So what's the page called again? I want to see what you're doing to it.

The page was called 'Teen Swag :]" But it was taken down, so it no longer exists.

Basically they flagged all the posts and pictures, and commented "Heil Rapunzel" (their catchphrase) on everything they could find.




#1208564 Discord's Redemption - Good or Bad?

Posted by Kiboat on 24 February 2013 - 01:56 PM

I wanted him to come back evil and I was initially unsatisfied with his redemption in Keep Calm and Flutter On but after thinking about it some more I'm actually completely fine with it. Also if he were evil then it would be unlikely that he would return more than once, but as a more neutral character he could probably make 1-2 appearances a season. And that is something I like. Discord is an amazing character, not just an amazing villain. I don't think a return to being evil is very likely for him.

Posted by MelancholicMemory on 24 February 2013 - 01:55 PM

He wasn't ever evil in the first place. He just wanted to bring about chaos and have some fun. However, eventually he learned how to play nice, that's all. I don't really care whether or not he goes back to the way he was. Either way, he's still an interesting character.

I dub that duck Radiquack, for it is the embodiment of radicalness. And the guy holding it isn't bad either  ;)

Mid-South meet up of Bronies, they all get together and watch the show. Lots of chubby, geeky guys (Which is totally my thing! :wub: )




#1206379 A Review of MLP Forums

Posted by SCS on 23 February 2013 - 10:41 PM

I've seen some other people provide some very nice reviews of this forum, so I decided that I should share my own two cents. My intention is to make this review as detailed as possible. I'll say what I like, and what I think could be improved, along with reasons as to why. This way my review will be as helpful to improving the site as possible. 

 

For anyone who doesn't want to read the whole thing, I'll go ahead and say now that it is without a doubt an immensely positive review. Excellent community and staff, great features, great aesthetic appeal, and lots of stuff to do. This, if not my favorite website, would definitely be in the top three. 

 

And now, without further ado, here is my review. I will break it up into different sections, with a summary of the ratings I have provided at the end. 

 

 

 

COMMUNITY: 9/10

This website, by far, has the best community I have ever encountered. Never before have I experienced an internet community as kind, friendly, and helpful as this one. I do my best to be an optimist, but I can be very pessimistic about internet communities. I've seen so much cruelty and hatred in Youtube comments, for instance, that I think I began to loose faith that wonderful communities such as these existed. I'm so glad that I was wrong. One of my favorite aspects of this community is the Life Advice forum. I love popping in there and helping some people from time to time, and I feel confident and safe that I can post about my own issues there and receive good help. This community is also very mature. The rules are rather lax, but it just works out so well for us. I don't see people abusing the freedom the staff gives us very much at all. Other forums I use have much more restrictive rules, which makes me feel like I can't talk about certain issues that I enjoy talking about, but could be considered unsuitable for children. So, that just helps me to feel much more relaxed here, since I don't have to worry so much about making sure that whatever I'm saying is appropriate for younger children. The members are also funny, they have great personalities, and I love talking to people here. I've already made some good friends here who I enjoy talking to via private messages, and I know I'll continue to make more. 

 

Now, why do I rate this 9/10 instead of 10/10? Mainly just because I was pretty disappointed with the amount of discord (no, not ~Chaotic Discord~, he's a pretty cool guy and doesn't afraid of anything) that took place here over the Princess Twilight Sparkle issue. I'm not against debating and throwing our ideas at each other back and forth over a volleyball net, just as long as we do that in a civilized manner. I saw some arguing break out over this. I don't mean to be too critical though, it's definitely understandable why some people got upset about this, as its a very pivotal moment in the show. I just hope that, in the future, people will discuss these matters calmly over a nice warm cup of coffee instead of fighting. But, I definitely don't expect any community to be perfect.

 

Another reason why I would rate this community 9/10 instead of 10/10 is because I have seen some negativity here and there. That's to be expected in any community of course, so it doesn't bother me very much at all. I just see some negative behavior sometimes between members that is, in my opinion, unnecessary. But, regardless, I love this community very much. It is the best I have ever encountered on the internet, and I believe that we can all continue to keep the community excellent no matter how large this site grows.

 

All things considered, I believe that a rating of 9/10 fairly expresses my love for this community without overlooking the things I dislike.

 

 

 

 

STAFF: 10/10

This website's staff is magnificent. I'm an administrator on a different website that's fairly large, clocking in at almost 7,000 members. Observing how the staff here manages this site inspires me to try to do better than ever on the website I have been trusted with helping to manage. The friendly, yet professional manner of this staff is just fantastic. They do their job efficiently, while still being pleasant, fun to talk to, and good members of the community. With a staff such as they, I know that I can use this site safely without feeling like every step I take is being monitored and policed by an army of moderator assassins. They have struck a perfect balance, indeed! It's also nice how the owner, Feld0, takes the time to talk to me personally about issues I'm having with logging into pony.fm after letting me into the pony.fm QA team. In fact, he's taking the time to talk with me about my issues with logging into pony.fm right now as I type this. So, thank you staff, for managing this site so well.

 

 

 

 

FEATURES: 10/10

I love the features this website has to offer. There's been times in the past on several websites where I would think to myself "well then, if only I could do this thing, some such or other, ahem, yes," and I have yet to have to muster such woeful contemplation here. This website is just so... so logical, it's beautiful. Please excuse me while I wipe some liquid pride from my eyes. 

 

All joking aside, the way this website is designed is just fantastic. I struggle to think of anything I can't do that I would like to, because you can do so many things, and I love that in a website. The support ticket system, the issues feature, all the forum features, how much we can customize our profiles, it's just wonderful. And, to think that the tech admins and the new assistants of the tech admins are working on even more awesome features for all of us. It's also especially admirable how they program this site on top of everything else they have to do. This goes for the whole staff, who are willing to spend some of their free time here despite their other responsibilities. Thanks, guys!   

 

 

 

EASE OF USE: 9/10

Another great thing about this website is how, at least for me, it was pretty easy to figure out how to use. I have had a lot of experience with internet forums, other websites, and computers in general, though. So, for me it was fun being able to figure out all the stuff that I could do. Even now I'm still learning new stuff about the site from time to time. The support ticket system the staff has set in place works very well, and there are a lot of FAQ articles to help out, too.

 

The reason why I give this aspect of the site a 9/10 instead of a 10/10 is because it's possible that people who haven't had as much internet experience would struggle to figure out how to use the site. Perhaps more measures could be taken to help those people. One possibility would be that a brief tutorial video automatically outlining the basics of the website would be displayed on a welcome page of sorts that would be the first thing a new member would see upon logging in for the first time. Or, perhaps a text/image based tutorial that would be automatically presented to a new user upon their first login.

 

Overall, though, especially given the huge amount of features there are, this site is still very easy to use, and definitely earns a rating of 9/10 in my opinion. 

 

 

 

AESTHETICS: 10/10

This is honestly the nicest looking site I've ever used. I love MLP art, and it's right there in the background for me to look at all the time, no matter where I am on the site. The way everything is laid out is nice looking and logically oriented. The colors are appealing, and I also love that wooden board style used for titles in messages, topics and announcements. I also love MLP Forums's favicon. It's also awesome how the staff lets users submit new banners to be put up about once a week or so. I don't know of any other site that takes the time to let their users do that. It's a great way to display the artistic talents of members of this wonderful community. 

 

 

 

OVERALL: 48/50

Overall, this site is just wonderful. Sure, there are a few things here or there that I think could be improved, but I don't expect this site to be perfect. This site literally goes above and beyond my expectations for a good site that I would enjoy using in every respect. It has a wonderful community, a pleasant, mature, and professional staff, a multitude of great features while maintaining a relative ease of use, and excellent aesthetic appeal. I'm very thankful that I happened to stumble upon this website one day, because it is the best thing I have ever encountered on the internet. 

 

 

 

 

Summary

Community: 9/10

Staff: 10/10

Features: 10/10

Ease of Use: 9/10

Aesthetics: 10/10

Overall: 48/50 (Beyond Excellent)

 

 

 

Well, that concludes my review! Thanks for reading it, and I welcome any feedback anyone has about it.




#1206353 The Friendship is Witchcraft Thread

Posted by Tall_But_Short_37 on 23 February 2013 - 10:29 PM

The song: Flawless.

 

The animation: Flawless.

 

The subtle references and humor that you'll miss the first time but notice the fifth that I love from Sherclop: Flawless.

 

BBBFF.net: Flawless.

 

Socker Boppers: Flawless 10/10 would buy.

 

I literally can watch every episode in this series 15 times and not get sick of them. FiW is far and away one of my favorite Brony creations (which is saying quite a bit, considering the amazing things which come from this fandom).

 

Only complaint: Needed more Sweetie Bot. What doesn't?!

#1206352 What villain would you pledge your allegiance to?

Posted by Harmonic Revelations on 23 February 2013 - 10:28 PM

Discord, instead of listing the reason I chose Discord, I'll list why I didn't choose the other options.

 

I assume working for Sombra means getting enslaved.

 

Chrysasils, changelings? Either you become a changeling or you get betrayed.

 

Trixie, yeah, no, the only thing annoying for a narcissist like me is another narcissist.




#1206318 What villain would you pledge your allegiance to?

Posted by Descant on 23 February 2013 - 10:10 PM

Flim and Flam.

 

Wait. They're not villains? Just misunderstood entrepreneurs?

 

I'd have to go with Discord, then. What wonderful chaos we would create! Also for reasons already provided by @~Chaotic Discord~.




#1206285 Hi. o_o

Posted by Super SonicGT on 23 February 2013 - 09:58 PM

Just thought I'd register, nothing more. Uh, I think I saw this place a long while ago when I was Googling for some FiM forums to post on. Think it was this place that I saw a well-thought-out topic on Rainbow Dash joining the Wonderbolts, after season 1 was done. Something about her being too chaotic to join them? I dunno.

 

Anyway, nice to meet you all. As for who I am, let's just say that I'm just another brony who likes the show, nothing more. ^_^




#1205870 Wubs's Signatures and Stuff!

Posted by Wubsie on 23 February 2013 - 08:06 PM

Hello little forum people.

I have been making signatures for quite a while now.

Using MS Paint...to GIMP, and a little bit of Photoshop. 

Why am I telling you this? Well...if you've read the title this is going to be the thread where I basically dump all of my signatures and avatars I have made.

I shall also update it everytime I make a signature, whether it's for me, or a special pony that I made it for.

Here are my latest signatures:

I shall post more of my older noobish ones when I'm not lazy....

(Also thank you to Chaotic Discord for giving me the idea to make this topic :3)

EDIT: The font I use is Origin, sexy ain't it?




#1204964 A New Hope: Tech Team Reinforcements

Posted by PPM on 23 February 2013 - 04:05 PM

Scootacool's sanity has been lost due to the plethora of tech work he receives on a daily basis plus his job.

Impressive, though. It's not everyday you see a muffin-ranked member be promoted to Community Steward -- just goes to show you that a badge isn't necessarily indicative of one's smarts. :)




#1204686 S03:E13 - Magical Mystery Cure

Posted by Motion Spark on 23 February 2013 - 02:44 PM

I'm so glad I stumbled upon this video. You guys, especially the sore bronies who are mad about the episode, should at least give it a try.

 

I don't want to change your opinions on the episode or the Twilicorn, but this guy explained INCREDIBLY WELL all the things I wanted to say because I couldn't organize and sort out the ideas that I had in my head. I still can't believe how many of you couldn't feel what I felt watching this episode.

It seems like you forgot how Twilight Sparkle got there, and how much she has grown to become the princess that she is today. Only a person that has watched since episode 1 and got attached to the characters can understand the amount of emotion, memories and growth that this episode delivers, but still you bashed on the episode because it felt rushed (which I agree to an extent) and dumb (like many of you said) because it lacked more situations and dialogue.

THE VISUALS of the episode and the MUSIC did all the storytelling, it's not that hard to figure it out. Anyways, this fight over MMC and Twilicorn has been really intense so I don't want to change anyone's opinions but just take a look at this video.
