About this blog

A blog where I rant about things not worth ranting over, ponder delicious puns on my name, pretend that I'm William Shakespeare, and talk about Computer Sciencey/other tech things over most of your guy's heads. Follow for some daily Ashbad d

Goodbye, All

Well, I have been gone from the site for a month or so now, so I'd might as well confirm it: I've basically left the community. Fun time while it lasted, now it's time to move on. Good luck to all that remain. You can keep in touch with me on https://twitter.com/TheAshbad and https://www.facebook.com/theashbad .

How to get Brohoofs on the Forums

Oh, you seriously just clicked this to find out how to get more of these valuable "brohooves"? They mean that much to you? Why do they, exactly?   Perhaps you think you'll been seen as a cooler person if you get more. Perhaps you think there's a magic ratio that once you overcome it ( 1:1.5 posts:brohooves, for example) that you'll become a moderator or get a "special" forums rank. Perhaps your goal is to become a top-20 poster and make page one of this list: http://mlpforums.com/members/p

Forums Drama Pokey!

It's like the pony pokey, except, not as fun.   You put opinions in, You take your anger out, You put your rage back in, And you post a couple flames! You do the drama pokey and you tantrum and you pout, That's what it's all about!   You put some hatemail in, You take some warnings out, You put a leave thread up, And you make a couple threats! You do the drama pokey and you give a little shout! That's what it's all about!   You make a comment here, You make a bad post there

Ashbad, signing off the forums.

...   And then signing back onto the forums again after about 5 minutes. I had to go to the bathroom and I always sign off when I'm away from my computer.   Why, what did you expect?

Fanfiction Writers, October May Be Your Month

Still juggling the TF2 server, my own hobbies, tons of schoolwork and studying, and working out the details for a new feature of MLPForums, but... Fanfiction writers who enjoyed the MLPForums 500 Word Fanfic Challenge, you might be squealing for joy soon over more contests. No information to be given yet, but by October things should be settled.

Fan fiction related whatnots

Of course, please first read my blog post over at FimFiction: http://www.fimfiction.net/blog/63077   Then do a little jig or something, I dunno. Just read what I posted there, and then possibly speculate about why Twilight is best pony and if I should devote myself to said fanfic over the next year in the comments below.

A Focus on Imagery

I've been working on Chapter 3 of BBBTF, and I've decided to ramp up my linguistics a bit to make it stand out as an improvement. Over 200 people have now favorites the story, and the like/dislike ratio is at 134:6. I want to give people a justification for their generous ratings and genuine interest. Have a snippet of Ch.3.   Morning drifted in, replacing the beauty of the night with the brilliantly orange-hued skies of dawn.  Twilight awoke; the sun had penetrated the glass of her windows

Things in store for you kiddies

Crosspost from my FimFiction blog: http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Ashbad         Well, seems my very first fanfic is actually doing well. Well, as in, by the time I finish it it'll probably end up as a featured story. Who would've ever known a ClopShipping between Twilight and Shining Armor could ever do so well, or even do well at all? The most encouraging part of it all is that Chapter 1 attracted 100 favorites overnight (literally), yet it was done in 45 minutes or so with little revi

Clopfics -- They're entertaining to write

So, I've been working on a clopfic. Okay, I spent 45 minutes shoving one together. An unfavorable topic I was dared to write for: a Twilight x Shining Armor clopship. I thought I was in for a very awkward first fanfic -- yeah, this is my first time writing fanfiction, or really any fiction outside of English class.   Two hours after it hit the front page of FimFiction: 78 thumbs up, 3 thumbs down. For a TwixShining ship. One of the most despised ones in existence. 110 faves. Obviously I
