  1. I had a wife die because she caught a cold and an infection after transplant. Those with medical conditions and the elderly are the population that are at risk. Unless you are > 60 live your life. Period. The current death rate is quite low for for < 40. Sucks to get it, but you’ll live. Also I do hope the serum method works, because then there will be at least some protection coming earlier than the fall. Just cover your mouth when you laugh!
  2. Only based on existing strains that we anticipate will be the strain that hits in the upcoming flue season. They make a statistical guess and can be wrong. The years that they are wrong flu deaths are high.
  3. COVID-19 keeps letting his dog shit on my lawn. People are too damn afraid to tell him off, but I’m not.
  4. Same. I buy household goods and toiletries in bulk from BJ’s so I’ve not been impacted.
  5. Effective immediately MLPF has taken the following steps to prevent the spread of Novel Corona Virus. Fan Clubs will be cancelled until further notice North American users are prohibited from contact with EU and Asian users We have increased the supplies of toilet paper in the bathrooms, but we are running low so we are opening a donation pool to allow for the purchase of new supplies on eBay. The current cost of TP is expected to surpass gold so we are setting the pool to $4,000,572.89 You are expected to wash your hooves before quoting and mentioning any other user. Failure to do so will result in you receiving a million points and being banned from the internet MLPF will be completely online after Spring Break. We haven’t worked out the details Brohooves are now considered an act of attempted infection and will be dealt with accordingly All staff members are being taught a bubble protection spell. Sorry Earth Pony and Pegasus staffers. You were born the wrong species All kidding aside, please be safe out there and take precautions. Remember to post pony!
  6. I thought I added this over a year ago. Welp. This is something I can easily remedy. I’ll add a preferred pronoun field and set it to optional.
  7. They have a recent positive track record with Pony. A show reinvented for a then modern audience. I mean it’s been 12 years since Faust started that, but that is the general broad approach she made. It’s possible that we’ll get something along the lines of My Little Pony Friends, which by some measures was acceptable to mediocre. I’m just saying that people place way too much emphasis on promotional and marketing pitches than should be given. Way too much. You have to try and ignore that stuff to try and prevent forming an emotional reaction, not for general cynicism avoidance ... but because it also opens you up to the psychological hold when something appeals to you sight unseen. Marketing mind control wizards are of the devil. She looks PG-13 rated. Might be for the adult fan base
  8. Keeping locked permanently. There will be no changes to Debate putting an emphasis on source credibility. That is and will always be on the onus of the reader and the people that engage in debate. I will not push the staff to fact check posts in there. While I can see situations where blatant falsehoods can be posted in a trolly manner, it will be dealt that way and not as a matter of policing truth. Figure that out on your own. People can also choose how they wish to respond or ignore posts. While I agree that ignoring valid claims and argument is bad form, there will not be any rule or moderation regarding it. People have a wide range of skills in debate too.
  9. If you are in the US, contact your Senator and Congressman as well as the agency in charge of facilitating COPPA. Change petitions due nothing. Locking.
  10. That’s just marketing speak tailored to parents of young kids. That flyer isn’t intended to speak to content quality. Almost all animated programming (good and bad) is built with modern relatability in mind. Also Gravity Falls, Loud House, Star, etc

      Is that a wedding or engagement ring?

      Congrats to you, Jeric. May it bring you many years of joy and success. :D

    3. You

      You

      I was wondering when this was going to happen exactly, and now I am late a few days. :twismile:

      Anyway, I wish both of you all the luck and happiness in the world! You deserve it!

      Edit: I hope you had a great wedding, have a beautiful marriage as well as honeymoon!

  12. Happy birthday Kitten 

    Always in my soul, on my mind, and in my heart. 

  13. New policy? The old policy was we don’t delete accounts for any reason period. The new policy was that we, as a courtesy, will take into account the EU requirements. For users that fall outside that law we have made exceptions for extremely old ass accounts where the user has limited or no content on here. In all those cases the original content is preserved, but the username and profile is anonymizes. For users with an expansive history it’s a no. You realize that if I wanted my account deleted there are hundreds of quotes that will contain names or text mentions of names, all of which are also indexed by Google. Sort of defeats the purpose. So we have revised the policy. Currently we don’t delete accounts because the person wants to sever ties. I am a hard liner on this policy in most cases. Sorry all As @Mirage stated staff can hide the occasional post, status, etc that you are embarrassed by. We do that often enough. We can even change the “author” of a topic so that a topic is preserved if your created one you no longer wish to be associated with
  14. Bless you. Whatever doesn’t get done after my honeymoon I’ll circle back and work on things. 9 days to the wedding and I’m running around like a cockatrice with his head cut off
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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. ;)

  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. And .... well .... FlutterCord it is. By one vote! Got some polls to make today.
  21. 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.

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

  23. Closing the poll and will post a new one with the top 4.
