  1. Do you find yourself overreacting or worrying too much about small things or things just out of your control?
  2. There is no denying our affinity for this show and the fandom that it has garnered. Some of us are old school cartoon fans that were drawn in by the quality animation that most modern cartoons don't have. Others were open minded enough to give the show a chance after hearing about the massive backlash to it. I myself got into the show after watching 'Teens React To MLP: FiM', and hearing the teens pass judgement on a show that they hadn't seen. Regardless of how one may have gotten into this show, I think it is fair to say that this show has become a great source of escapism for many. It's no secret that we are living in some turbulent times. There is an economic recession, the ongoing concern of global climate change, a crumbling job market, and a myriad of other things to be concerned with. There is all this negativity coming from the world around us and in comes MLP. A show completely divorced from reality. A world separate from our own. It's full of fantasy, adventure, new experiences, and just good feelings. MLP offers a form of escapism from the cold and harsh realities of our world today. It's not just overarching issues too. The show provides escapism from the simple stresses of everyday whether that be your family life, stressful job, or anything else. In a simple sense, there is nothing wrong with having something like MLP to be used for escapism. We all need something to 'detox' at the end of the day and keep ourselves sane. The problem is when it becomes less of a sense of relief and more a sense of denial. Where the person uses the escapism to deny reality and ignore the real world. In some respects I think fiction is a more powerful drug than anything. The ability to get lost in a world completely divorced of the problems that we have in our own is strangely appealing. However, falling too far down the rabbit hole can cause someone to become dangerously detached from the real world. Let me know if MLP has become a source of escapism for you. Do you think it's possible to become to separated from reality? At what point do you need to take a step back and return to the real world? I I welcome your thoughtful discussion. Cheers.
  3. What am I supposed to do!? I don't get the channel- practically none of my friends do either. We're all such computer nerds that none of us even have cable. I don't have access to Discovery Family in the morning! I don't know what I can do at this point; it's so late. What was I supposed to do? Walk around Gainesville with a "Will bunk with Brony for Pony Day" sign? I don't even know if this topic belongs here. Man...
  4. When I was writing this lesson, I was hesitant about writing it because I have been dealing with a lot of anxiety. I didn't want to come across as not practicing what I preach, then I realized that I shouldn't cover up on what's really going on -pretending I don't have any problems- but, I should be real instead. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Topic: Don’t Worry Philippians 4:6-7 · “6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” In Philippians 4:6, it says to not be anxious about anything. · Anxious means to be worried or eagerly wishing, (i.e. she anxiously waited to go to the bathroom.) Then it says what we can do to cope with anxiety. · “ .. by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God…” - You might be wondering what it means by praying and to petition, to pray is to simply tell God how you feel, to petition is to ask God to help you overcome your feelings of anxiety. Matthew 6: 25- 34 · “25Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” - In Matthew 6:26-34, it talks about how we don’t need to worry because if God has taken care of the birds, grass, and flowers’ needs, how much more will he take care of us. - Our Heavenly Father knows what we need, but we have to seek his kingdom and righteousness first and all your of needs will be taken care of. ♦ Twilight is the perfect example of what can happen when you worry constantly, for instance, in season 2, episode 20 (It’s about Time) and season 2, episode 3 (Lesson Zero), Twilight is worrying about late work and worrying about a disaster that is not coming, because of Twilight worrying, her appearance tend to get altered, (messy hair, bags under her eyes, etc.), and she also lack of sleep. In “It’s About Time” Twilight learns that she shouldn't worry about the future because every day has enough trouble of its own.
  5. Resonantly been thinking allot abut my friends and what they think of me, not only friends i have hear but dos i have at other place's asswell. Gauss am just worrying abut it to much, but some time just want try figure out if they all begin honest with me. This thought wouldn't be so much of trouble i gauss if weren't for fact that i get so warn down by thinking abut it all the time, and just worrying. But gauss that the prize have pay if care abut people. You can't help gating involved i suppose. Oh well, is not like will die because of it. But would lighten loud, if just could late it go, and just straighten things out.
  6. So, for anybody expecting something funny/witty/clever/random, turn back. This blog post is not what you're looking for. So, let me start out by saying that I love these forums, these forums have one of the most varied and lovely communities out there, but now let me continue and say that it has some serious problems. Problems that need to be addressed. Let me also start out by saying that I will never give up on this community, I will continue participating in and helping this community until I have been put in the ground. So don't worry about this by thinking that it is that type of blog posts. This is more like a long string of feedback. The first thing I'd like to mention is that for the longevity of the forums, the "Address problems when we feel like it" model of operation will not work out in the long run. Don't laugh or think that's some kind of joke or poking fun at the forums, that kind of thing actually works on a small scale, but as the forum grows, more systematic moderation will be required to simply keep up with the amount of content being produced. I would recommend making some kind of system where there is at least one moderator always online, maybe by hiring moderator from varied time zones this will work out. Another thing I've noticed is that the Administration does not seem to take the recent problems with the forums' public image very seriously. That is unfortunate, because unless we take steps to enhance that public image, the forums will simply become more and more hated, and users will keep leaving. I recommend we fix this by hiring some kind of section of site-staff meant specifically to address problems with public image. They could do trivial things that in the long run will make the forums look better publicity wise. This solution might not seem necessary, but think about it, do you know how many more users, would, for example, stay on the website if we had staff members that helped them at home by doing things like replying to their welcoming plaza posts, handling issues with name changing so that the Admins do not have to. I would think they'd be a step from between Poniverse staff and moderation. You might think of this as trivial but keep in mind that this would help the mods and Admins by freeing up their time that they would have spent on trivial things like this. Some recommended titles might be things like "Community Representative" or something similar that gives people the idea that these users represent the things that the forums are really about. On to the next problem, inconsistencies in rule enforcement. It should not be set up in such a way that several minor infractions could lead to permanent bans. An example would be making it so that the most ban time a minor offense like backseat moderation or pointless/off topic could only add up to a week ban maximum, while excessive vulgarity could add up to a month maximum, and so on. You might say that users could abuse this, but here's the thing, I don't mean that it could never end up perma banning a user, I simply mean that the severity and intent of an action should be considered. Somebody well-intentioned should not be banned permanently for the site because they simply don't understand what they're doing. In addition,this would help silence those who say things like "It's so easy to get permabanned here", and again, this would help the forums' public image. We should only be perma-banning long time-repeat offenders if they commit minor violations and permabanning extreme things like those who post NSFW content or trolls, etc. The last problem I would like to address is the staff-selection process. The problem is that only staff have a say on somebody's promotion into the staff. The reason this system will fail in the long run is that it means that if it gets to a point where there are a lot of bad mods/admins, no good mods/admins will get added. In the long run, a better alternative would be user-nomination by other members, and then the staff would vote on these nominations. That way, the public could express their support for a user's promotion, but the staff would still have the ultimate say in the matter. There should be some kind of fail-safe in case of staff corruption where if the general user consent is that this user should be promoted, they will at least have to be considered. For example, the staff will receive a notification about it so that they know it would be a good time to make a final decision about it. That way, the staff will not become a completely totalitarian 'Cool kids table' type high school-clique like it would if the staff can only grow by it's own will to do so. I mean, if a user isn't cut out for the job, they can always be demoted at any time. But we should at least give them a shot if the community in general believes they deserve a chance. I mean, the forums needs to put at least some trust in the judgement of it's own members, otherwise, the staff team will seem detached and distant, thus further decaying the public's perspective of said staff team. ----------- In closure, I would like to say that these steps would ultimately help the forums and continue to help it grow and prosper, as opposed to stagnate (Even if the start of Season 4 makes the forums become more active, unless steps are taken, our increasing negative reputation will do much harm) like it is currently starting to do. I am very passionate about this community, and am just worried about it, I want to see it continue to grow and expand it's horizons. I remain cautious but optimistic that the forum can become even better if only we set it on the right path. I love you guys, and want nothing more than to have this forum continue to succeed for years to come. -Harmonic
  7. I swore to myself that if one more topic about Twilight's speculated Alicorn Transformation appears, I will make my own topic. A topic which is not a rant about my opinion on the matter, and a topic which it's purpose is not to discuss the matter. A new topic has appeared. One which I will not reveal the name of to keep the original poster's identity sacred, but an unnecessary topic nonetheless. The point of my topic, is an announcement to everyone with an interest in keeping a bit of their sanity (if you dislike insanity, don't worry, this topic can also help you keep from becoming to sane). First of all, if you're like me, we know that there's almost to much evidence surrounding the fact that Twilight's Alicorn transformation will not happen. So you don't need to worry about a thing. But if you're not like me, this thread is for you. So sit back, relax, and read this topic. And hopefully you'll have a much better outlook on the dilemma at hand. And as I said, I promise that there will be no explanation of the absurd dilemma. So by now you're probably thinking, "Mod, why are you talking in such weird language? Why are you making your paragraphs so small? Why are you talking in italics? AND WHY AREN'T YOU TAKING SIDES ON THE ALICORN TWILIGHT HOAX!? The answer? Because I don't worry about it. I do care about the show, I truly do, but I don't worry about it. And you shouldn't either. Why? I'll tell you why. Because there's nothing we can do about it. We, as fans, can't mold the episodes how we want them to come out. We can try, but it would be futile. If I've learned anything from my fourteen years of being alive, one simple lesson stand out. You can't change other people, you can only change yourself. You can try to change others, but not only will it bring about immense stress and anxiety, it's an uphill battle, and by uphill, I really mean a ninety-degree slope. It's not impossible, but it's pretty close, and is it really worth it for a show, which frankly, has brought us pleasant surprises in the past? I admit, that last part was a bit unnecessary, as I believe no one here in their right mind would even think of doing that, but it just goes to show you how much it's out of our control. And for me, I find I have a much more happier life not stressing about things which are out of my control. My own well-being, and my decisions are in my control, so I occasionally stress about that, but things such as the well-being of others, I don't stress about, because they're ultimately not in my control. "But Mod, you talk so much about how many things you can con't control, but I want to control some things that have to do with the dilemma at hand!" As I said, you can't change others, but you can change yourself. Change your outlook on Twilight's speculated Alicorn transformation. Now, I'm not saying that for those of you who think that it's a bad idea, should change your opinion, I'm saying to act calmer about the whole thought. What I've seen is outbursts of new topics spontaneously started by people who take this on a a whole new level of seriousness, and who are so affected by it. That doesn't seem like a very calm reaction to change. In a nutshell, change your outlook to a less stressful one. We can't force the hub to do what we want them, and even if we did, it's not going to work. It's out of our control. So whatever happens to the show, don't worry, and be happy. You can be angry, melancholy, happy, or even leave the fandom, but that's good, because you're accepting change for what it is, instead of starting pointless discussions about it. The first discussion was good, but the rest weren't, only because they were rants about people taking this to a more personal level. And keep this in mind, whatever happens, we're stayin' alive. Thank you for those of you who soldiered on and read this entire thread. I know how tiring it can be to read these long threads, but I sincerely hope that this will prevent more pointless and repeat speculations about the show. And one last thing. I foresee many saying that I'm a hypocrite for saying I can't change others, and this topics point is just that, but at an individual level, I can teach some lessons to others, which have no guarantee will work. Sure, I hope some people will have a better outlook after reading this thread, but I can't make them, it's out of my control.
