What is your least favorite part about the Brony fandom.

41 posts in this topic

Overall just the amount of complaining whenever something in the show that doesn't go according to what fans had wanted. They say that they're leaving the fandom because the show's not good anymore and that it has "jumped the shark" for how many countless times. Understand that the show isn't perfect and catered only to appeal to Bronies who somehow wants everything to go like they want it.

Well, the sense of moral superiority that a lot of people in the fandom have is pretty high up on the list. Also those who try to get others to watch the show by tricking them into beliving that the show is something else than what it really is.

I was wondering what Bronies dislike about Bronies and being Bronies.

Sorry that I just opened this forum to trolls.

Hi, as this thread is about the general fandom, it has been moved to Sugarcube Corner.

Complaining about parts of Fandom. Complaining about little things in the show. Complaining about ships and head-canons you don't agree with. Complaining about OCs (When they are not used in RPs, meaning that they don't effect other people in any way.). Complaining in general. Why do we complain so much?

 

Discussion is okay, critique is okay, opinions are okay, but when it turns to just complaining, that.

There some people in the fandom that give fandom the bad name, I have some who p*** me off, remeber a brony upset of me for disliking a pony he likes and some agree, it annoyed me.

Also there some arts , videos and music and most fanfics and some in tumblr I dislike and even some upset me. Also Pinkinena is not Pinkie Pie.

Immaturity. I know there's a lot of high school-aged bronies, so that's to be expected to some degree, but the sheer amount of nonsense in group chats and such just make my eyes glaze over.

It's kinda cheating to post in my own thread but screw it, my biggest issue with the Brony community is the nebula of trolls that have formed around it disturbing my safe-space, now that was a joke, but kinda wasn't, the Brony community was built on a foundation of being kind to others, the unofficial Brony motto has been "we do not discriminate, we do not hate, we accept you no matter your flaws, and help and be kind to each other and help others, whether they are friends or not." That's what this fandom is based on (and watching colour-full Ponies of course.) And the trolls seem to love to hate us for being just nice people, and while I do agree, some people in the Brony community can be sheltered and kinda odd, that could be said about most of these trolls as well, but we don't say that (I do, but I digress.) We just say "oh, you think we are autistic and are self-intitled mummies boys? Good for you, now please, you're stopping me from posting all the Ponies." But still it happens and still, we go on.

I kinda went off the rails for this one.

When people are complaining over the show, while nothing is wrong, and quit the show and try to take people with them. :unamused:

I'm going to have to disagree with that statement. The only thing this fandom is based on is our mutual interest in a cartoon for little kids. Nothing else, and certainly not on kindness and such things.

But if you look to this fandom, you must admit the most of us are very kind and playful to each other. I think it is a big part of this community. ;)

Well, the sentiment is said often.

Not really. Sure there's nice and kind people in this fandom, but there's just as many (if not more) horrible persons in it.

Maybe I am naive, but for so far I've seen there are mostly nice people here. Yes, of course, I also met one or two people who are less nice

The ones that make art with the characters promoting a hateful or authoritarian regime of any kind, though I take a particular disdain to Fascists.

The ones that do you know what. I'm not saying any more than that because it's beyond cringy. It's downright disgusting. X(

The ones who are constantly bickering about the show "jumping the shark." Seriously?

I got tired of the "OMG the show has jumped the shark!" and "the show is dead!" stuff a while back. Basically the same as this:

Also, the thing I don't like about all fandoms: fans are always complaining about changes. All that "the new/last season is the worst" (after every new season) and "the show is no longer what it used to be" stuff. I understand that not everyone likes the new things, but very often this just gets ridiculous.

@Oleks is right, every fandom does this. I know people who refuse to even acknowledge the prequel and sequel trilogies of Star Wars. Like give me a break, I'll accept your opinion but don't demonize the rest of us who still enjoy it, you know?

Bronies are not very good at being funny.

A lot of the humor (from MLP animations at least) comes from using other memes/jokes, puns, or LULRANDOMXd kind of stuff.
