  1. They'll just keep the names while adding new ones, it's been like that since G1.
  2. I pretty much share your thoughts of what you don't want to see in general.
  3. For quite some time, there has been a leak mentioning that the show will have a "fresh/contemporary look" and "compliment Mane 6 (whatever those characters will be)", and showed pictures of various cartoons. However, among them were Gravity Falls and Star vs the Forces of Evil. This begs me the question, what will G5's art style be like? Will it have the "CalArts style" that many cartoons are using nowadays, or a Tumblr-esque art style? If so, then it will be a major step backward from G4's art style and will lack the expressiveness of the characters that it had. I really hope that the art style will be more appealing and timeless, and can inspire many more art styles.
  4. To be fair, I always felt G4 was more character driven than story driven.
  5. It's very likely that G5 will be more gender neutral than G4 and appeal to a wider audience. Do you think the franchise should now become gender neutral with G5 and onwards? Hasbro could just give the brand a Disney-like appeal, targeting all ages instead of a specific age group. Also, according to a leak, the characters in G5 will have more fantasy oriented names, contrary to G4's cute and girly names.
  6. Speaking of, I'm just hoping the characters in the G5 3d prequel film will have appealing designs. Are you sure it's real?
  7. I think the Sonic fandom is about to self-destruct at this point. Just imagine if the MLP movie had a teaser poster this bad.
  8. Here's one reaction to the design that I'm currently watching.
  9. With the imminent ban on NSFW content on Tumblr and the potential passing of Article 13, do you think the fandom should eventually come together can create a decentralized (possibly I2P) platform that can't be regulated by either government or corporations? It could be like a mixture of sites and apps like Discord, Deviantart, Youtube, Tumblr, Poniverse, Equestria Daily, Fimfiction, Derpibooru, etc.
  10. I really can't imagine how Sonic fans are feeling right now. Seriously, this looks just so godawful. What's also horrifying is that Jim Carrey will play the role of Robotnik. Stuff like this makes me appreciate the MLP movie even more.
  11. People need to stop being reactive and instead be more proactive, as in working on ways to get around this. One, people can get a VPN. Two, if worse comes to worse, websites can block access in the EU completely so people can get such VPN. The fandom can also make their own decentralized platform if they so wish. Also, EU member nations can interpret the directive anyway they wish. If anything, they don't have to enforce it. Some countries are even working against it.
  12. This also needs to be said. No matter which site you operate on, you should never put all your eggs in one basket. That's why you need to have backup sites, because stuff like this is bound to happen. Now all the Tumblr exclusive users are learning this the hard way.
  13. To me, MLP as a whole (the show and the fandom) offers escapism like no other. How ponies are such an alternative to humans (and traditional anthro characters for that matter) with their flavored personalities, simple designs and expressiveness. There are unlimited possibilities for stories about them, from simple slice of life stories to epic adventures. Plus, the world of MLP is pretty much a blank canvas, so there are virtually limitless possibilities for worldbuilding, canon and fanon.
  14. The worst part about it is that this is a sign of what's yet to come. This won't be the only kind of thing to happen, cause in the coming years, other sites may follow suit. It wouldn't just take out portions of the fandom, but all fandoms. Fandom work has a right to exist, because it is a beacon of creativity and offers entertainment and escapism that no original media (whether it be novels, films, TV shows, anime, comic books, video games, etc) can provide. Plus that fan works aren't made by professional writers, filmmakers, or developers, but ordinary people who either go to school or work 9 to 5 jobs.
  15. If you can afford it, you can use Houdini Indie for Vfx. For compositing, you can use Natron or the free version of Fusion. Instead of Zbrush, you can use Sculptris for character modeling, while using Blender for rigging and animation. For rendering, you can use Renderman.
  16. The fact that net neutrality is gone and Article 13 is on the verge of being passed doesn't help either. We are one step closer towards having a totally stripped down internet. On top of that, artistic creativity will be severely limited. I tell you, when the 2020s come along, the internet will be completely different, and in the worst possible way. This is why we need to push for a decentralized web now more than ever, so we can escape from the overregulation from governments and corporations.
  17. Yeah, but I'm sure a lot of the art you've seen on there was posted on Tumblr. Even if all MLP porn is banned there, at least it's still on Derpibooru.
  18. It's only a matter of time before people start finding and create alternatives. My prediction is that Tumblr will lose so much traffic that they won't be able to sustain themselves.
  19. https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/3/18123752/tumblr-adult-content-porn-ban-date-explicit-changes-why-safe-mode This will really suck for the porn art communities, especially the clop community. I guess it's time to find alternatives.
  20. I'd be fine with romance as long as there's good chemistry. I'd like to see G5 cover more genres besides SoL, Comedy, and Adventure like G4.
  21. To me that's all that matters, and I'm perfectly fine with still having a female dominated cast.
  22. Even then, I don't think ALL changeling hives have to be metamorphosed.
  23. Even then, it's been said that there's going to be a new cast. The ponies shown aren't even going to be the mane cast.
