What's new with the fandom?

Recommended Posts

Alright, so I've noticed that things have been different as of late.  I've been a regular ol' brony since the inception of the thing, followed along with the ponygoons, you guys, some of the chan-related stuff, youtube, EQD, etc, etc, but I drifted after season 2.  Mostly life related reasons, but I wasn't on the internet much nor had much free time.

 

Before and during the interim I was a big follower of the art and music and a few fics (never been into the shipping or clopping, but I don't judge those who are) and tried to stay current on all the happenings and the veritable creative explosion- mushroom cloud- supernova- gamma ray burster of content.  But after a bit, said life problems cut me off from the ultra rapid hyper schizoid evolution of current internet events.

 

After season 3 I watched it all in the span of 2 days and got back into the fandom to find people a bit different from when I left.  I don't know any (social) bronies in real life so I didn't have personal updates.  I figuratively dove back in to what I thought was the deep end of the pool and I hit my head.  What the hay have I missed?  I know a few people flipped horse apples over the season 3 finale, I've watched Snowdrop, thought it was brilliant, exhausted all the musical links I could find, couldn't find any new art that wasn't borderline porn or just mspaint.

 

So what's new??  EQD seems to be posting mostly boring things that don't capture my interest.  Goons are now vehemently anti-brony.  What is actually happening?  I feel like I've lost the connection to the community!

We are now like every other fandom.

 

 

 

Full of death and complaints.

So pack it in and call it quits?  Let's troll the new guy and tell him to get out.  That's not the point of my thread, I just want to know what's new.

A lot of things are new.

 

It would be almost impossible to list them all in a single post.

Well what's one new thing that I might not know if the last thing I knew was eurobeat brony/wooden toaster/living tombstone and was trying to bridge the gap?  Doesnt have to be music.

In musical regards, not much has changed, Eurobeat brony/wooden toaster/living tombstone are all still the most popular brony musicians around.

We've grown out of the "new a supporting fandom" phase and going into the "divided asshole fandom that hates even the smallest changes" phase. Kinda like Pokemon fans once Ruby and Sapphire came out or the Sonic fandom after Sonic Adventure 2.

Well I was never into the fandom of either so I have no idea.  I mean I played the older Sonic the Hedgehog games and then I saw furry porn by Sonic fans (which made Sonic as a whole become associated with furries in my mind) and then I liked Pokemon as a kid and still do but I'm not in the fandom of either so I dunno.

This thread appears to be related to the My Little Pony franchise and/or the Bronydom in general. Thus, it has been sentenced to Sugarcube Corner.

 

This is an automatically generated message, by the way.

Did I put it in the wrong forum? Sorry!  Like I said I'm kinda new, I just wanted to see if there was major stuff I missed between the end of season 2 and now.  Should I just close the thread?

I could say the new thing that has happened with the fandom is, a lot of people complain a lot about little things. But when there is a big change, we all accept it sometimes.

 

I call it a ''complain/neutral with big changes.''

Jeez, calm down.

I never was trolling or telling to leave or whatever you took offense at.

Just stating what's new, which is what you desired.

On topic...

The main thing is that we're completely divided over the Twilicorn issue. And everyone is complaining about the spin-off show, "Equestria Girls" without seeing anything but the character designs.

And... That's all I know.

 

 

But basically what I said earlier in a less blunt fashion.

 

 

 

 

 

...

Everyone said basically exactly what I said, and I didn't see one damn thing said to them.

Nothing new really, except what ~Chaotic Lightning~ said.

 

Also, the debut of the new fan made episode "Double Rainboom" is in one day.  

Ehhhh Double Rainboom....

Not sure if I'll watch it, I've heard a lot of bad things about it, like its excessive use of LE ME MES XDXDXD, which in my opinion are a cheap form of comedy.

Why not I guess. It could be really good, but I don't know.
