  1. We are wrapping together our own Birthday Celebration (9 years) with the show's 10th anniversary. Holy crap .... 10 years! Most of our lives back then vs. today may look entirely different. I know mine does. The show and this community have impacted my life in more ways that I can fathom. It isn't a stretch to say that it may have even saved my life since a few of my friends here were there when I needed a friend the most. The final BronyCon was a critical point in my life, where I took the final step into closure and healing from two years of struggling with grief and pain. I'll make a proper lengthy tome later, but I want to know if and how this show and community has impacted you over the years. While you are thinking about that ... @Randimaxis has graciously taken it upon himself to get the some special videos to say how much the show has meant and even some shoutouts to this very place. More fun to come folks. Eyup!
  2. Summary of Action Effective today, Administration will be closing and removing the Debate Symposium section of MLPF from view. Reasons This has been internally discussed several times, and over the years I have personally been opposed to such a decision, believing that the users on this site can conduct themselves in topical debate without provocation. There are copious threads from users in favor of closing Debate that I have personally shot down. Over the years Debate Pit / Debate Symposium has proven to be far more trouble that the benefit it provides. What happens in that area is not actual debate, at least in the classical sense and use. The smugness, the constant jockeying for that zinger, the lack of focus and cohesion, and lack of respect is out of control. As this is a forum with the mission to bring people together to talk about all things pony, we do not need a forum concerning debate. It is too far removed from the scope of MLPF. It was created because these discussions were The equally important reason for this is the perception of bias. Over the years this section has given rise to claims of Moderation bias. In the past I could rely on statistics of warnings and bans to invalidate such claims, but recently this is not the case. Most of the staff have been personally careful in expressing political opinions on this site to prevent this accusation, not from a requirement, but from a deeply help pragmatic belief that it is best way of fighting our own biases. Accusations of bias become as toxic as the approaches to 'debate' that we see in Debate Symposium. This is why there is a rise of communication platforms that disallow politics and political debate. I suspect that this is also the reason why we always found staffing the area a challenge. Once a person feels that there is an agenda against them or a group, it changes the way they interact and leads to ... additional caustic commentary. Being understaffed is a problem in that feeds into a perception of bias. Impact Elsewhere The current prohibition on political and religious commentary in blogs and status updates remains. I am aware of several deviations of that rule, and we will be removing any such content that was published after @~C. Discord~'s announcement. Threads that are communal topics in nature such as the Christianity, LGBT, and Feminist lounge topics will be allowed to remain as they already disallow debate or directed condemnation to their principles. And no, I know what some of you are considering, political parties and ideologies will not be allowed to have their own topic. There will be no public place on MLPF that will allow for the continuation of the discussion that was happening in DS. There is no loophole. Tread carefully. Shooting the Elephant in the Room We know that this decision will be unpopular, and will result in some users going elsewhere. We understand that, and we accept that as a consequence of this decision. There are plenty of platforms that allow all manner of what was happening on DS. Your opinion and voice is not being silenced, just diverted. We already have an idea on who is going to have an issue with this. Most of us have been here long enough to know that. The Future This may not be a lasting change. As of now I am treating this as temporary. There may be some return of a Debate section in the future, perhaps in early 2021. Any new section will have a different approach than the old one as we continue to evaluate any way to bring back debate that is less of a dumpster fire. Perhaps with some limited topics and a classical limit on number of rebuttals to an affirmative argument.

  23. Um, yeah, we gave up, at least the current iteration of that specific section. Not hiding that fact at all. We’ll likely try again in the future, but as it stands we tried and we failed. The staff certainly aren’t celebrating; tho I won’t miss the section as it stands for now.

    I think I like my Devil Della avatar more than Rapunzel as Minnie Mouse. That might be because I didn't edit the Rapunzel avatar myself.
  29. This show has helped me come out of my shell after I was done with college since I really didn't have any friends to keep in touch with, and I would consider the fandom as my second family, even with its flaws if you were to dig deep. Thank you, MLP, and congratulations to Friendship is Magic nearing its 10th anniversary with Crusaders of the Lost Mark nearing its 5th anniversary. The show may be over, but the memories we made will last forever.
  30. Both MLPF AND MLP:FiM have been very helpful to me! I've made many amazing friends on MLPF and MLP:FiM has helped cheer me up in some dark times! So, happy birthday to MLPF and MLP:FiM!
  31. While by far not the only contributing factor, the acceptance within the show - and more importantly, the fandom - have helped me to understand and accept myself, my sexuality, and not having to have to fit into society's expectations. For some of these more...social changes...I am sure you know and have noticed them yourself This goes not just towards her but many of @You here. And I can also still remember the pretty warm feelings for the motivational welcome! It might also has helped me to become a better person confronted with all this kindness and warmth ok, slightly less of a jerk than I was before
  32. I didn't pay much attention to the fandom while the show was actually airing, but recently I've found myself drawn in for reasons I can't comprehend. Plus I've just gotten into the comic, and I'm looking forward to seeing what kinds of things they do now that they're fully free from the show's status quo.

    Some interesting conversations with @Scar led me to make this. Here is my headcanon of the planets in the Equestrian solar system. I made it similar to our solar system, but with a few notable differences. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TcjZu515LJxtufK-HNujizupCdXJ3eIJbUvpDkYDNcM/edit?usp=sharing

    Well partners, it’s time for AJ Day. (That rhymes!) And as I’ve done before with Twilight, Rarity and Pinkie, it’s time for a little speech in honour of the honest charm herself. Well, Applejack, what more can I say? From the moment I first saw you, I knew right away that I would very quickly get to know you and your amazing family. Me and everypony else truly looks up to you and your honesty and you often have me trying to kick the trees as well as you. You’d be surprised at how easy you make apple-bucking look. You’re always there for your friends, extremely organised and I’ve always quite liked your accent. I love you, AJ!
  44. this is the second stage of the aniversary masterplan, and this time you're summoned to share your story of how you first got into the show and the forums, once again @Randimaxis went above and beyond and graced us with a very special video

    Edit: DAH! Why has half of this been crossed out?! It won't let me fix it! Well, like I said before, apologies for forgetting, my mother and I watched ‘The Return of Harmony’ last night and ‘The Cutie Mark Chronicles’ the night before. Believe it or not, she was the one who asked to watch it, instead of it usually being me. She said she ‘actually really likes it!’ Part of me exploded when she said that. Both episodes were tons of fun. She pointed out the fact that I was literally trembling with excitement while we were setting it up and I was trying to explain who the CMC were. (Yep, I really do adore this show.) We laughed a lot with it, especially at Spike’s line, ‘When did you get so cheesy?’ The thing that made me lose it with laughter was when she told me, ‘Why don’t we just call the Cutie Marks bum tattoos?’ ’The Return of Harmony’ is always an emotional adventure for me. Being the Mane Six lover that I am, the bit when they split up understandably always gets me a lot. It took me a good five minutes for me to explain what the Elements of Harmony were and who resembled what. The big moment though was when I got extremely emotional at a certain scene. After laughing a lot at the library scene, especially at the fact that Rarity’s ‘diamond’ had the same name as me and the ‘Your face’ moment, the bit where they all split up, Twilight turns fully grey and a single tear lands on the ground in the shape of a broken heart, got me. It got my mother a bit too though as well. She giggled at me a little bit but she knows the personal connection I have with this show so she understood completely. I wasn’t a blubbering mess like I am in private but it was still pretty obvious. As it happens, this post is actually way longer than I thought it would be. The bottom line is, we had a great time watching the two (technically three) episodes together and it sure was a great way to spend a Sunday night!
