I've been watching My Little Pony for 3 months. I've been a user on this site for less.

It wasn't until today that it struck me, just how amazing this community is. I mean, I always knew it was different... But I never fully realized it, until now.

When I first saw Kim's thread, and the tragedy he faced... It hit me deep inside. I don't know if it was the fact that I felt such a deep emotional response for a total stranger, or if it was the incredible outpouring of support... That thread was one of the darkest things I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of shitty stuff. And you shone light that pierced the darkness.

I've seen this community waste no time at all in propping this man up from the bottom of the abyss. I've seen this community have a very real impact in helping ease such extreme pain.

I've shed tears over this. All of it. Over a complete and total stranger on the internet. Over all of you and what you've achieved.

I wish it didn't take such a tragedy for me to see it, but you guys are the most amazing community ever. I can say that with 100% certainty. And I never say anything lightly.

Thanks for being fucking amazing guys.

Thank you for being amazing, N! Ponychan is a wonderful place... Each and every single day, these ponies inspire me in some way.

I'm sitting here with my eyes still tearing up, and then I see that picture. Ha, that perfectly shows the situation, doesn't it?

I wish I could say I actually had friends here. I mean, real friends, I still don't believe in that "everyone is friends with everyone" stuff. I mean, I wish I was really close to more people here. It's not something that I can just ask for, it has to grow with time, but hopefully this new outlook will make that a reality.

And maybe, you know, just maybe, I'll be a little bit less of a cynical bastard :P

Numerous things like this over the past couple of months have made me feel this way too.

It's true and interesting that a lot of it (not all of it... there are still other things like general friendliness and tolerance towards others with differences) comes from those who are down or have had bad things happen to them, and seeing how the community responds. From darkness comes light, and I don't think any would disagree that its good for something positive, however indirectly, to come out of their dark times.

Indeed, you lot, are all, awesome.

Thank you OP

I too am truly amazed and proud of this community for what we do every day. For all the drama we have sometimes and the general silliness, this community. Every day just about I see people having a rough day because life dealt them a shitty hand and everypony in this community rushes to help. That's what real friendship is all about. Hell I have seen this community literally save a person's life, no exaggeration. I have seen people renounce gang affiliations to join the Ponychan community. This place truly is special and very dear to me, and I'm honored to be a part of it

I'm about to go to bed shortly, I've been super tired today. One last shout-out to all you awesome Bronies. Seriously, it's impossible to overstate how incredible this community is. You're all amazing and the turnout in this thread has made me feel incredible.

Before this day, I was a user of the site, but an outsider to the community. That changed today, for the first time. I can't express how happy I am. I finally, truly know what it is to be a Brony. And I'm so proud to be a part of that.

Eventually, I'll figure out exactly what emotions they are swimming around in my mind, but for now, I at least can tell you that they feel good.

When I read Kim's OP, I was really worried. I thought it was going to be okay, but then he posted the news... and for some reason, I was absolutely devastated. I nearly cried, and I hardly ever cry. Best wishes go out to him, I can't even imagine how hard it is.

Thanks for this, N. I too cannot believe how great this place is at cheering up others and helping those in need. I've never seen an instance where someone who asked for help did not get people talking with him. Ponychan, you're the best online community I've ever took part in and I'm pretty sure I'll never find a better one. Thanks for being awesome everybody.

It's true the brony community as a whole is exceptional. Even though very few of us actually know each other in real life that doesn't stop us from having each others backs. I think it's awesome how much our community can get done without acting like many of the other asinine people found on the internet. I'm a very proud member of this fanbase and I think we prove that an impact can be made on society through cooperation, hard work, tolerance, and friendship. Keep rocking bronies!!!

I'm definitely a background pony in this place, but I see what N's talking about every day. This is the only place on the internet I've ever seen where ponies can just come and spill their hearts, and be greeted with warmth and love instead of derision and mocking.

I'm doing alright. In between classes at the moment (actually, on break). I feel kind of... Not right. I felt so happy that I see what this community is, but I feel like Kim's situation was lost in that feeling of joy. Now I just don't know. I have a habit of saying too much and eventually losing sight of the reality of the situation, and I'm really questioning some of my later remarks in that thread, the memorial thread. I just don't know. It's vital not to cross lines in such a volatile situation, I believe, even slightly crossing them is bad.

Doesn't mean the rest of you aren't awesome. It's just me having a small personal issue.

...I would like advice and help on this issue though. I don't know if I'm just being silly and imagining it, or if I really did cross the line. It would be really appreciated. I'm still not fully adjusted to how this community operates, I still don't understand a lot of it. I mean, considering that I've been a "part of the community" for all of a day, even though I've been a user for awhile.

Many thanks in advance. I'll be going to class shortly, I'll be back on in about an hour and a half. See you guys in a bit.

I think that saying that a online community is implying effects to real life is a bit too far to say, but i understand how you feel.

I also can say that in many years, the internet has never saw a community like this before, and im proud of it, truelly proud.

But again i must say, let the internet and other strangers have influence on your real life is bad, really bad.
Of course, not always, but you have always to make sure that you're not falling into a psychological trap or a scam.
Being guillible is a fatal error sometimes, but i do assume that the most part of the community have enough common sense to avoid any sort of bad intentioned actions.

Share feelings, may it be happiness or sadness, is a great thing, i appreciate this part of the community, that's what make this place so wonderfull and awesome!

And i agree with you, ponychan is one of the greatest community on the internet.

>I wish it didn't take such a tragedy for me to see it
It breaks my heart that it had to happen over these events, but thats how the heart works. In friendship, you can never truely call someone a close friend unless you two have experienced some deeper-than-normal emotional experience such as a large fight, having been there for one another during a breakup of a significant other, or maybe even the death of a mutual friend or something.

I have never been ashamed of being a part of this fandom and community, but its not every day that i am -this- proud of what we have done. of how its affected someone.

I am happy.

I'm in ponychan for less than a week now. But from the start I could understand that this is not just a different chan but is also a different place in this hate machine called Internet.

From the start that I came here and asked "Why do you people like it?" and only got polite and positive answers I knew I've found a special place with special people, that i can rely on, specially now that I'm so scared with college
