History of Bronies

Recommended Posts

Mmkay, this thread is more of a practive thread. I'm going to try to make one (which will hopefully get pinned) including the entire history of bronies, and the community forming. this is going to be a massive post, incuding dates (such as when Hasbro released MLP for the first time, when Laura Faust resigned, etc), reactions (how Hasbro has reacted to the community, vice versa), guidelines to being a brony (love and tolerance, peaceful protests), and background characters, famous fanfics, and pretty much every big thing that makes up our community. It would be very helpful to get some dates, insight, and help on this project, but I'm going to bed now. I'll check back tomorrow and start on it.

Maybe this might help? It covers from the era of My Pretty Pony to Friendship is Magic. I have a feeling bronies wouldn't be very into My Pretty Pony :P But, without it, there would be no My Little Pony and no Friendship is Magic.

And here's who invented it from this site http://inventors.about.com/od/mstartinventions/a/my_little_pony.htm

Hasbro received a design patent for "an ornamental design for a toy animal". The patent (U.S. #D269986) was filed in August of 1981 and granted in August of 1983. The inventors were Bonnie D. Zacherle of Norwood, MA, Charles Muenchinger of Providence, RI, and Steven D. D'Aguanno of Greenville, RI.

 

And these talk mostly about the shows.

Forgive me if you did not want help but trying to help people is my problem. I think it's a great idea and that you should go for it.

I actually wasn't planning on going that far back, this was intended to be a reference guide for new bronies to tell them everything they should know about the community

A history of the new phenomenon sounds a lot less tedious than the history of the ancient phenomenon (well it was a phenomenon amongst preschoolers in my day and there were boys that liked mlp before bronies) :)

When you write it, even if you don't talk about the previous Gs in depth I'd at least provide a link or something to the history of them just in case anyone is interested and to give some credit to, I guess our ancestors... it's like pony lover evolution almost. You'd have like Homo Sapiens Pretty Pony, Homo Sapiens Little Pony, Homo Sapiens Pony Tales, Homo Sapiens Friendship Gardens, Homo Sapiens New Little Pony, Homo Sapiens What the Hell, and Homo Sapiens Brony.

We are the most evolved!

Include pictures!!!!! In case they can't read.
