If you have the time, PLEASE read this entire post.

Alright /oat/ I really need your help on this one. And mods, it would be super awesome if you could sticky this.

As some of you may know, I've been writing and audio-editing for the BronyVille Podcast blog. It's been going quite good, but I've decided to start yet another weekly thing on the blog. With all the threads going up this past few weeks with words of encouragement, discussion threads about the current state of ponychan/the fandom, and general feel-good threads, I've come to realize that this community has some amazing writers. like The Soldier

This new weekly thing I'm starting is called "Quotes from the Fandom." I'll be taking cool sayings, excellently worded messages of encouragement, poems, bits from fanfiction, and stuff like that. I'll post them up on the site, have a small blurb about them, and cite the source. Mostly this is because I think there are some very eloquent posters/writers here on Ponychan and EqD who should be highlighted for their amazing prose.

But here's the problem: I don't have enough time to browse every board on Ponychan every day. As much as I would love to be on here 24/7, I simply cannot. Despite it being summer, I still have lots of work to do related to school and my degree, not to mention my job.


I know you there, posters of Ponychan, you guys who lurk all day, or you regular 24/7 posters. I NEED YOUR HELP. If you see a cool quote or poem, or some inspirational words of wisdom, I need you to send them to me so that I can post them. I'd like to have a buffer of at least three quotes so I can write things in advance.


[email protected]

If it is from a fanfic, link me to the fanfic so I can ask the author if it's okay to quote them and cite their fanfic as a source.

Please note that I do not want to stir up drama. I will NOT post quotes that I think may start flame wars or mudslinging. I will not debate anypony's views or opinions, nor will I give opinions of my own. This series of articles is just to honor the great writers in this fandom!

And, just to shamelessly pimp things I work on, check us out at! Hopefully this weekly little thing will turn out to be a regular post that I do.

Thanks in advance,

-Ben Sims

i dont like this idea as it will cause posters to feel left out, which, as of now is a common topic of why users are sad.

The feeling of loneliness and inferiority is all i can see coming from this.

But that's my opinion.

I'm a bit worried as well. The idea of this could cause less love and more people wanting to be noticed. Suddenly, pseudo-loving messages appear everywhere that attempt to be eloquently worded or profound simply because they want to be noticed. Many of us, if not all of us, are attention horses some of the time. This idea could spell disaster in the long run.

That being said, I do believe it is right to recognize certain great things that have been said, and having them all collected in one place is brilliant. I just don't know how to go about doing it without bringing out the inner-attention horse in ponies/making ponies sad for not being noticed. (Writing from the perspective of, not an attention horse, but a looked over brony who gives advice and is oft ignored.)
>> No. 32583
If it becomes a problem, I will break it down. If people would like, I could make all posts anonymous. Keep in mind that it is not my intention to stir up trouble. I just want to highlight cool quotes

As for attention horseing, I think we are all guilty of that especially me
>> No. 32584
It's okay, I think. Most of us who are ignored are getting used to it. Perfect example literally just happened to me:

I often save wordpad versions and screencaps of really good posts, sorry to say many of them are either anonymous, or with a lost Author, as I didn't save it. You could always just ask who the writer is for the wordpad. The screencaps come with a writer though, of course.

This. It's why hardly ever post under this name any more, preferring anonymous; if you're a boring person or thread killer, people won't categorically ignore your posts when they see your name on them.

There's nothing to lose from just casting your posts to the wind and not giving a fuck if people read them or not - except for time and IRL socialization.

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

"There is a certain complexity that can be reached within a properly executed crescendo. It is a complexly layered array of sounds - overtones and undertones, all combined into the perfect sound. They all build up upon each other with a precise progression until finally they collapse upon each other. This is the essence of music and sound in it's perfected state."

I wrote something along those lines once when discussing music here. *shrugs* Not pony-related but whatever.

"The open-minded man and the closed-minded man can both look upon the same statue, examine its complexity, and ponder its meaning, but the open-minded man will see the statue for what it is while the closed-minded man will see it for what it isn't."

Something I thought up while remembering back to when I first watched MLP and thought it was stupid simply because it WASN'T a very complex or "mature" show. Little did I know that that's exactly what it WAS.

I would appreciate it immensely if everypony here would use the email given instead of the thread posted; I check my email more times a week than I do ponychan.

Thanks for all of the help, guys. I really did need it! It would be super awesome if you would keep my email in mind whenever you browse any pony fandom site. I just can't make it to my computer every day.
