It’s never Lupus

So I’ve been reflecting on my time here at Bronystate, thinking on all of the great times we’ve shared.  It’s been quite a magical little journey.  We all have those memories of our favorite streams; the ones that made us laugh until we cried, the ones we enjoyed the most.  There was always that one special stream that kept us coming back for more.

I remember how much fun I had watching Luna’s streams of House.  It was right when I would finish up my day of classes, so it was the perfect time to relax and enjoy some snarky diagnostician humor.  Of course, it’s always Lupus.

So what kind of streams do you folks like?  Were there any particular moments that you found really awesome?  Let’s have some more nostalgia going on in here, tell us some of your favorite stories.

 

Thoughts? Agree? Disagree?

How we all started

Hello again my fellow appreciators of the colored equines.  Thanks for all of your helpful feedback on what we should do with this blog idea.  It’s great to know you guys are always full of ideas!

So I figured that since this is going to be the first post, we should have a theme in keeping with that.  So let’s dive right into one of the most commonly asked questions: how did you come across those little ponies?  We all have different stories how we stumbled upon the show, and I figured that it might be fun to share them.  Some of us came from the chans, some of us from popular youtubes, others just happened to notice that creepy guy in the corner brushing a girl’s toy with a toothbrush and figured “Hey, let’s see what that guy is doing”.  We all ended up in the same place, but let’s talk about how we started.

It wouldn’t be particularly fair if I demanded you all do the majority of the work for this blog, so I’ll just throw out my own little story and then open the floor to you guys.  I guess it was pretty natural for me to join in this little internet craze.  I was raised with three older sisters who forced me to the ground while they put makeup on me shared with me their many interests, girly or otherwise.  So I was always familiar with the MLP franchise (among…other topics).  When the time came that some guy on 4chan posted Lauren Faust’s rebuttal to the fem-nazi review, I was interested enough to check out the show in question.  The rest, as they say, is history.  I suppose it’s not a particularly entertaining story, since I didn’t include the time my sisters forced me to wear their dresses but it’s mine and hey, it was a special time for me.

So how about you folks?  How did you all get started?  Take the poll and let’s see what everyone puts.  I’m hoping I didn’t forget a major factor for “brony recruitment”, so apologies if you need to put in “other”.  I’m imposing one rule though, I want to see some stories on these comments.  If you vote, share the story!  Be a pal, and help old Val out!  I know you want to!…  JUST DO IT!

How did you find out about FiM?

Another possible feature

Hello again folks. So we’re always trying to find new things to do with our viewers; new things to stream, new toys to play with, that sort of thing. During another one of these little thought processes, I noticed we have a front page that has a working comment section and rarely gets used. It feels like there’s more we can do with our site than we’re currently offering, so I figured “Hey, why not throw this out to the viewers and get their opinions on it?” I was thinking we could have some sort of bi-weekly (or monthly depending on how much legitimate content we’re able to produce) discussion/blog entry up here on the front page where everyone can post all those brilliant little thoughts I know you’re capable of.

So what do you think, chat? Would some sort of regular blog discussion type thing interest you? What kind of things would you like to see? Feel free to give us your ideas, we always love to hear creative ideas from our viewers. You can also email us at [email protected] or simply mention it to a mod in the IRC. Nothing is set in stone yet, so I’d like to get as much input on what YOU want as I can. Cheers folks!

How to not get unbanned.

Howdy folks, Valthejean here. One of the responsibilities of a moderator is handling bans and ban appeals. We’re always open to reasonable ban appeals, if the user is capable of showing some form of improvement. Generally speaking, a good ban appeal shows that the user A) has learned his/her lesson, B) recognizes why he/she was banned and C) makes an honest effort to follow our rules in the future. We don’t really follow an empirical guideline on what constitutes a “good” ban appeal, in general we’re looking FOR reasons to unban someone. As surprising as it sounds, we don’t LIKE banning people from the site. It’s a nasty job, but we have to do it.
With that being said, there are times when so little effort is put into these ban appeals, we can’t help but facepalm. Obviously, no one reading this needs to be told HOW to appeal for a ban, considering most of our users are pretty awesome and rarely break rules to begin with. Still, I think you’ll all enjoy this little slice of “Ban Appeal” cake: Fail

I’m a reasonable guy here, but come on. We’d appreciate if there was a little less “ass” in your half-assed attempt at weaseling out of this. Hoo boy…back to the old modding duties. Hope you all enjoyed -ValtheJean
