Any of you have a website or two that you used to visit all the time, like every day or so, or just spend hours and hours on it, but for some reason you stopped, either because you found something better, your interests changed or things over their changed and you didn't like it? For me, it was www.sodahead.com. It's a comment based, poll making website. A pretty innovative concept if you ask me. You can get statistics & demographics of those that voted based on what they list on their profiles. The polls even have a feature that automatically enables embedding of YouTube videos. It's a pretty functional and nifty set up. Unfortunately,the kinds of people that showed up weren't so fun to be around. Let me put it this way: you think Tumblr was bad for arguments? Visit any discussion involving anything religious, political, or anything invoke a negative opinion from you. You will get called out on it from multiple sides and get thrown into long arguments defending your stance. Heck, even posting something innocent can get you flak. A few years ago, I posted a poll in memory of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman, and asked if anyone there was a fan of his music. You know what I got? A religious nut claiming he deserved what he got cause he made the devils music. No respect. So after getting more involved with MLP, and finding this place, I found that the arguments were no fun anymore, so I stopped. I don't think I've been on in a year or so. How about you? Any sites you've "broken the habit" of going to?
Why aren't people posting in the fan clubs? Or, at least, the Mane Six fan clubs. Is everyone genuinely here - a PONY forum supposedly centered around PONIES - just to play critic (when new episodes are actually airing) or debate politics and other such bullshit? I've long since thought that the fun was being slowwwwly sucked out of the damn place, but this is "giving up" on an unprecedented scale. Does everyone feel as though they've met their quota for celebrating the reason(s) they supposedly came here in the first place? Oh. Oh, wait. Your meaningless post count doesn't go up when you post into a fan club. You can post into some ridiculous topic about the bathroom habits of ponies and get a plus one (good job!), but posting art or positive messages into a fan club gets you zilch in that regard. However: There's no minimum character count for posting into a fan club. You can just run in, post a friggin' image of the appropriate pony, and then run your ass back to the Debate Pit if you like. How hard is that? Seriously. And don't tell me you've stuff to do: You're on a forum. You either have nothing else to do or are putting off things you'd ought to be doing. Fans are gradually drifting away from what actually matters about the show. Hardly anyone's here to actually enjoy what it was that they gravitated towards in the first place. It's just any other forum now; except it's pony-themed. It's not a pony forum.
