Fan club abandonment.

Ziggy + Angel + Rain

442 views

Why aren't people posting in the fan clubs? Or, at least, the Mane Six fan clubs. Is everyone genuinely here - a PONY forum supposedly centered around PONIES - just to play critic (when new episodes are actually airing) or debate politics and other such bullshit? I've long since thought that the fun was being slowwwwly sucked out of the damn place, but this is "giving up" on an unprecedented scale. Does everyone feel as though they've met their quota for celebrating the reason(s) they supposedly came here in the first place?

 

Oh. Oh, wait. Your meaningless post count doesn't go up when you post into a fan club. You can post into some ridiculous topic about the bathroom habits of ponies and get a plus one (good job!), but posting art or positive messages into a fan club gets you zilch in that regard.

 

However: There's no minimum character count for posting into a fan club. You can just run in, post a friggin' image of the appropriate pony, and then run your ass back to the Debate Pit if you like. How hard is that? Seriously. And don't tell me you've stuff to do: You're on a forum. You either have nothing else to do or are putting off things you'd ought to be doing.

 

Fans are gradually drifting away from what actually matters about the show. Hardly anyone's here to actually enjoy what it was that they gravitated towards in the first place. It's just any other forum now; except it's pony-themed. It's not a pony forum.

Well the show is on a break and some topics do get pushed down by the flood of newer topic on top of them. Also when it comes to fan art, there are better places for that than this forum :)

Then why is anyone here?  The ONE thing that makes any of these self-proclaimed Bronies, well, Bronies is their interest in ponies.  But, outside of topics so serious they're actually ridiculous, hardly anyone actually talks about them.  I've seen a number of people say that they're here for the fandom, rather than the show...  How does that make any sense?  "I'm here for a fandom centered around ponies...  Even though all we ever really do is debate politics and religion and act as though we're standing up against societal norms."

Maybe posting an image of a pony in a thread is boring for people.

As opposed to what, exactly?  Fervently debating politics with faceless, nameless strangers on a pony forum in a never ending struggle to appear more informed or feel more self-satisfied?

I'm not the only one that noticed what felt like a lack of pony fans on these forums.
