  1. I am assuming that this is not due to a specific message or moderation action. Otherwise I would have just locked this and invited an honest private conversation between the Administration and you over how the site is moderated. In the we allowed these sorts of discussions to go on and on and on under the guise and pretense it was for community improvement, which it rarely ever was. So if this is the case let me know now so we can take this up in a DM. I asked that this be moved to Feedback. I’ll allow the community to opine. My initial (but not final) thoughts on DS are this: In the end most of what I tossed into the Debate section are best practices. Using a logical fallacy or incorrect information isn’t going to be challenged by staff directly. I do want to give the younger or less experienced users who may not be aware of the finer points of Philosophy a chance to give their thoughts. The rules currently all boil down to one general thing — don’t be an insulting asshat. That will never change. I did entertain the idea of a more structured and formal format for debate, however it quickly became very apparent that few people know how formal debates are conducted. Also, because of the general level and flavor of pathos and humor found in that section, finding staffers willing to manage such a concept becomes a time sink none of us are prepared to undertake. The reputation of that section precedes it. Sometimes it is impossible to tell if someone there is being genuinely naive, a troll, or so caught up in their own internal vacuum of ideas that they can here anything beyond the white noise of their chosen talking points. Such is the internet. And then there is my personal taste. There are users in there I would love to engage with on a discussion. All of them have widely diverse views. @Twiggy and @Goat-kun are definitely not individuals who share my personal worldview but I actually enjoy reading what they have to say, and even engaging them from time to time. I certainly don’t want to have a formal debate with them. For one, I have a feeling that they wouldn’t like that sort of overly structured system. Two, they would probably kick my ass in a genuine debate. I’m like most and don’t like losing. So, if anyone has any other thoughts on the section, shoot away.
  2. Oh, I have been slacking haven’t I? How did I allow suck a beautiful concept fall from the forefront of every user’s mind on this site? Have I lost my touch? I swear by all that is Fabulous and Cidery, the Church of Rarity will arise again to support the Holy Union of GemApples! Many will be married to their waifu in Rarijack’s honor! For it has been written and it shall be done.
  3. Closing as question was given the correct answer. Thanks for the question
  4. It takes all of two minutes to read. Go ahead and read them and come back and ask your question if you feel it isn't answered.

    Oh dis gone be great.
  6. I’ll prognosticate. If the toy industry is moving in the same direction it has been since G4 started, the peak popularity of G4 in 2014 absolutely won’t be repeated. G4 was a series of several elements that came together well enough, and it did that in spite of Hasbro making some odd decision with the product line. G5 won’t be what G4 in terms of viewership or popularity. That’s perfectly fine though. For me, runaway popularity doesn’t mean much, since I’m not one to garner enjoyment out of large numbers of fans and viewers. If Hasbro knew what the hell it was doing with its toys, then maybe.

  9. As we are resuming the World Cup here soon, I wanted to resurface this so everyone old and new are aware of this. In short, if you join a team here, and post in the match threads themselves, you stand a chance to win a video game console of your choice. PART 1: The Grand Prize - A Thank You For Participating So I have a proclivity for throwing unpredictability into things. The giveaway is no different. I originally announced that there would be a drawing for a Nintendo Switch Bundle. That is absolutely correct. What I failed to state, though I hinted that I had something up my sleeve, is that that isn't the only option. Some are not fans of the Nintendo system and games (no judgement, tastes vary). What to do ... what to do? The only reasonable solution would be to offer a choice to the lucky winner that would work for most people here. So the lucky winner will have a choice of the following bundles. NIntendo Switch Bundle - The console, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Zelda Breath of the Wild, or any other two games of your choice. PS4 Bundle - The console, Spider-Man or another game of your choice X-Box One Bundle - The console and game of your choice The drawing will take place live on Equestria.tv the Saturday following the conclusion of the World Cup. Yes will ship international (though I only have US systems). Some of you have weird plugs! PART 2: How to be eligible This part is easy. The first condition check is to join a team. If you are a member of a team, you met the first criteria. After that, each World Cup match topic you posted in after the Wild Card nets one entry. Again, be a member of a team and post in the actual match threads. PART 3: How does the reboot effect me? Several months ago I recreated the teams requiring people to rejoin them. If you opted not to rejoin a team, or leave a team, I still have your post data and you are still in the pool so yes you remain eligible and your prior entries count. Thanks all.
