  1. His fatalistic nihilism was actually the wrong way to look at it, and his comments are in dispute by the nature of the framing device used in the film. I digress. Ignoring the point of that film and refocusing on the world at hand and the current state of various fandoms, it really isn’t as bad as you make it out to be. Not even close. It can be online, but even in a country where 50% of the population seems to be diametrically opposed to the world view of the other half, the truth is that IRL behaviors of most people are benign and shifts between friendly indifference and casual acknowledgement. Very few people are blatantly rude. A cynical or toxic mindset will usually focus on those unfortunate experiences as the norm when they are far from. And before you suggest it, the internet, far from its ubiquitous nature, is not the standard level of social interaction once finds in the real world.
  2. Not particularly no. You certainly disclose enough personal information on this site giving people almost enough information to start a search. It’s a double edged sword when you start seeking mental health and life advice on an Internet forum, you risk disclosing too much personally. You need to be more careful with you information online. End of story. You should ignore them if you can’t engage without going into a destructive mindset yourself. Full stop. I mean, if you need validation from strangers on the internet, that’s a you thing. And from what I can tell you aren’t refusing to be a part of the negativity. You created this thread and even bit back at the relatively benign suggestions to NOT PARTICIPATE. Friendly warning, tone down the language a little and the most vitriol. It’s a cartoon and you are discussing it in a forum with strangers. Take a deep breath and relax. This topic’s general self-indulgence does make me bristle from the obviousness of it, but I’ll let it stay open for the interim.
  3. Will you all let me be Discord or pull a last year. Your call. Cindy gets the other costume

      You could be Discord's interpretation of Fluttershy. ;)

  4. Okay as promised you all get to pick the character I am going to be. Again, like last year there will be no gender switching (though I may make an exception if Cindy is picked as Discord by default if you select Fluttershy for me). No EqG specific cosplay for Shy. Feel free to suggest cosplay themes here and if there are enough amusing ones I will make it a separate poll. Discord has a lot of looks. Fluttershy did too.
  5. So the staffers we have to cut the staff songs are unavailable to do it presently due to schedule changes IRL. If anyone knows how to edit together vocals (and cancel out recorded vocals on official songs) please PM myself, @Lord Valtasar or @Randimaxis.
  6. And .... well .... FlutterCord it is. By one vote! Got some polls to make today.
  7. This! As some know, I’ve successfully navigated raising two children to adulthood. Growing up myself and when I was a young adult, I was not a fan of other people’s children. When I had my own kids I adored them, while still maintaining a general annoyance with other children in general. I used to joke, “I love my kids — MY kids. Other kids? Not so much.” There is a lot of truth in that, and it’s hard not to judge the parenting approaches that other people used when you see uncorrected behavior and poor attention. Ironically I’m actually really really great with kids in general, even though they usually annoy me.
  8. LyraBon is in the lead

      Doe votes, FlutterCord !

      Good. Everything is going according to S.M.I.L.E's plan.  :secret:

  9. Closing the poll and will post a new one with the top 4.
  10. As the question was asked and answered by either a staffer or user who was correct, we will be closing this question out. Thank you as always.
  11. The site is huge, and large or over broad search queries may lead to time outs (like searching for "pony". Narrow searches or try again shortly afterward. Or use Google Site Search. Trust me, it is better
  12. Starting off with a tie 

     

     

  13. Okay, this is it guys. The round when you all decide if Cindy and I become FlutterCord or LyraBon for a Convention and Photo Shoot type deal. vs A few rules from here on in. The designs of the costume will be influenced as much as possible by the characters from FiM. So no Equestria Girls specific costumes. Outfits the characters wore "on screen" are on the table, and you may nominate ones here as the next element will be you picking the theme. For instance, Lyra and Bon Bon could be in "agent" attire, Canterlot Wedding gowns, or just simple street clothing to mimic their pony counterparts. Ears, horns, wings, and tails will be replicated regardless. Next round will be choosing theme and who I will be out of the duo.
  14. There are probably more reasons that notifications would not match up that I could reasonably go into and discuss. Some have to do with how you are browsing and using tabs, some could be skipped due to our backend (I occasionally see traffic on notifications in the ACP backed up). Suffice to say that unless you are missing an amount to the point it is harming the general user experience for the community, it probably isn’t something that we would be able to dig further into at the moment.
  15. Blackberry OS is an odd animal when it comes to compatibility with many things. It’s been falling apart at the seams for a while now and has reach End of Life. That means many applications (including browsers) have been starting to break since support no longer exists. Even in the crack/hack community it’s something that they have admitted is finally .... dead. An exhaustive list is probably not something that we can verify outside of suggesting that any OS that is still being supported with updated mainstream browser software should work. Amusingly, this post made me curious so I did launch a cracked version of IMB’s OS2 Warp with an ancient IE and it almost worked for 2 seconds.
  16. Hurry up and cast your votes. I will close this tomorrow 

     

     

  17. Interesting round thus far. It’s been open a few days so I’ll close this and create a new thread which will include a sneak at the specific themes for each group. Welp, there is a 25% chance I don’t have to wear a skirt in public (again) so yay. So it will either be LyraBon or FlutterCord vs
  18. Traveling backwards would be possible only through anchoring a theoretical wormhole to a present point. When five years relativistic time passes you could jump back to said origin point. Unless this phenomenon exists in cosmology, absent its creation, time travel to historical moments would not be possible. I do love that @Yellow Diamond mentioned linear time as the main way we seem to comprehend it. That isn’t how time really works, as evidenced by all the tech you use that connects to satellites, yet we can only experience time at our relative perception. Your mass and the mass of objects around you ultimately determine your time traversal relative to others, and our brains may only be able to perceive time a set way. The common house fly and other animals perceive time slowed down relative to us which accounts for their continued existence in nature. We move slow so they can dodge easy. Time is weird
  19. Final Four are up. Several friends and a few romantic connections. Nice spread 

     

  20. Two more rounds and we’ll know what duo are wins. Then we pick the specific costume theme and who will be who (for some added amusement I guess). The top four are on the board.
  21. I added some old school retired Admins for fun.
  22. time to place first round votes for the parody target

  23. Locked in and loaded. Let’s get this party started
  24. Locking poll for next round. Will be dropping the options with only two votes.
