We are wrapping together our own Birthday Celebration (9 years) with the show's 10th anniversary. Holy crap .... 10 years! Most of our lives back then vs. today may look entirely different. I know mine does. The show and this community have impacted my life in more ways that I can fathom. It isn't a stretch to say that it may have even saved my life since a few of my friends here were there when I needed a friend the most. The final BronyCon was a critical point in my life, where I took the final step into closure and healing from two years of struggling with grief and pain. I'll make a proper lengthy tome later, but I want to know if and how this show and community has impacted you over the years. While you are thinking about that ... 

 

@Randimaxis has graciously taken it upon himself to get the some special videos to say how much the show has meant and even some shoutouts to this very place. More fun to come folks. 

 

Eyup!

While by far not the only contributing factor, the acceptance within the show - and more importantly, the fandom - have helped me to understand and accept myself, my sexuality, and not having to have to fit into society's expectations.

For some of these more...social changes...I am sure you know and have noticed them yourself :P

This goes not just towards her but many of @You here.

And I can also still remember the pretty warm feelings for the motivational welcome! ;)

It might also has helped me to become a better person confronted with all this kindness and warmth ok, slightly less of a jerk than I was before

All the hobbies I have is what MLP inspired me to try in one way or another. If not MLP and its community, I most likely would be only playing games in my free time.

It's a huge change in regards to how I spend my free time, but other than that, not much has changed, especially rl-wise. :P

If it weren't for Twilight Sparkle's reluctancy to make friends in Friendship is Magic I never would have decided to join MLPForums in the first place. 

I owe a lot to Friendship is Magic but the thing that I am most grateful for are the many amazing friendships that I have made during my time here.

Happy birthday MLP FIM and MLP Forums! I've met so many wonderful people through this website, in fact those I consider my best friends in the world. That wouldn't all be possible of course without MLP FIM! My life has changed a ton since I first got into pony way back in 2014, I've grown up with FIM and now, while MLP continues onto it's next chapter with G5, I continue on to my own next chapter in life. Thanks for always being there MLP. Thanks for introducing me to the most friendly and accepting fandom I know, and thank you MLP Forums for being a second home to so many of these awesome bronies and pegasisters. Here's to many more years to come!

The show help me finish my studies at school (Flutter Brutter) and made me more social. since I realized the lessons taught in the show don't just apply to children; they apply to anyone regardless of age.

This show has helped me come out of my shell after I was done with college since I really didn't have any friends to keep in touch with, and I would consider the fandom as my second family, even with its flaws if you were to dig deep.

 

Thank you, MLP, and congratulations to Friendship is Magic nearing its 10th anniversary with Crusaders of the Lost Mark nearing its 5th anniversary. The show may be over, but the memories we made will last forever.

Whoa, nice impression on Macintosh @Randimaxis!!! And thanks for these words!!

 

I can't believe it will be soon my four years here and this one of the forum I had ever been active for such a long time! I can say that we do have some ups and downs here among each other's here. We laugh together, we argue, we cry, all the emotions we shared in one forum. And that to me is like a family. Sure we have problems here but we also have others to help us get through it and make it work again. In most forum I have been with I cannot take the people who are so toxics and rude to each others. This forum I've noticed does have issues, but at the end everyone comes to respect one another from one way or other.  We were able to tolerant and respect each other instead of putting other's down. I'll admit that I have come out rude or strong on some people here in the past. But as I see other's showing kindness it made me wanted to do the same. I appreciated all the time, fun, and patient, everyone has given me here and I will try to do the same here!

sometimes you have to pour your thoughts and the demons that haunt you, but you can't do it with family as some of them hit too close to home, that's where friends come in, and this place provided me with some of the best people and i am so glad to call them friends. you know who you are, thank you all

So, you agree he's fine, weary of me for being so, somewhere in between?

Ten years is quite the milestone and it's amazing to think that next year will mark a decade of this forum. The show has been a big part of my life for the last three years and so has this forum. Big Mac himself brought out Smarty Pants, so you know it's a special occasion.

He started as a jerk and douchebag, and a lazy B, but that's just until the end, where we all realize...he is just afraid, and well..yes, human. That it is easier to pretend not to try than doing so and risk failing. I feel and felt absolutely relatable to that.

Exactly. His fear of failure is the one saving Grace about him.

In fact I found a really great story where we actually did manage to get a job working with manes as he has taken classes forvand it's far away from home so he won't be able to mooch off his parents. other than his appearance in the 200th episode we don't really see much of his life after that episode so I like to imagine that that is his new lifestyle.

It has been nine and ten years that's awesome having been here since the early days of both the fandom and the forums I have to say it's pretty amazing how both the forum and the community around a show about ponies has kept going and will continue to do so.
