WTF were they expecting? I think the best outcome here is that they were shut down, but aren't going to have to pay the $150k in statutory damages for the copyright infringement and $1.5M in statutory damages for trademark infringement.

Okay, internet, let me explain something:

It's fine to like things that aren't meant for your demographic - no one should ever tell you otherwise. But for those that decry Hasbro for this, let me list out a few things you should definitely thing about:

For starters, they own the copyrights. It's their property, which means it's their decision

Secondly, unless it exists like Club Penguin, you cannot have something meant for children as an MMO. There are a lot of clueless parents who will give their child access to anything with a kid's show on it. There are a lot of sick people who will exploit their ability to hide behind a cartoon pony avatar. This is the kind of game that needs to be handled very delicately, or Hasbro, bronies, and the creators of the game will all suffer. Badly. Hasbro decided that they'd rather not let a bunch of random people make something that could potentially ruin their image.

Yeah, while, Hasbro could have certainly had just worked with the creators to get a licence and split revenues... I think the combination of kids interested in this and the whole "Bronie" adult thing at the same time makes this something they want to tred into very carefully.

That's the point. The show was designed for young females. Yes, it's fine for others to like it, even to make their own subculture, but when it starts into this territory, things can get ugly. How many parents do you think even know about the existence of bronies? How many parents do you think will get asked to install this cool game that susie found while googling "twilight sparkle game"?

In the age of 12 year olds on xbox live, how many parents do you think would go ahead and do it?
 
2012-12-10 03:59:54 PM
I hate the word Bronie. I don't know why, heck I even like cartoons meant for kids myself. But for some reason the word Bronie makes me almost want to get all stabby.

This is true. I guess we'll see on fark at some point whether or not that occurs not using any of Hasbro's material. Should be fine unless their ponies have rounded corners.

I wouldn't take that bet... Consider, they've already lost on any willfulness argument, since they've already copied Hasbro's stuff once. So, now it just comes down to if they make it sufficiently difficult that no one would be confused between the two and that there's no intimation of any copying... and that's a factual determination for a jury.
Also, think pragmatically - they want this thing to be successful with Bronies, so it's going to be "Totally Not MLP:FIM, winkwinknudgenudge," with Sparkle Midnight, and Apple Brandy, and the like, and that's not going to work given these facts.

Yes yes yes, because the only reason someone can like something is because of how easy it is to entrap children, however that works in your minds. Can't be because they find the something interesting or fun, nope, for you people it's all about the pedophilia. Really shows which group thinks more about molesting kids, doesn't it?

There are women who love Transformers, GI Joe, and other little boy things, are they also doing it for the sole purpose of raping children?

The first thing the trolls and haters always bring up when "discussing" MLP is pedophilia. They're convinced that anyone over 5 years old only pretends to like it so they can rape children. How? They never explain, they just keep screaming "PEDOS!". They're the ones obsessed with child rape.

"Target" doesn't mean "Only". People are allowed to like and enjoy things that aren't "targeted" at them.

For example, as I stated above, women and girls like "boy thing" such as Transformers and GI Joe. Are they only pretending to like them so they can rape little boys?

Funny thing: like in the general population, there is a huge variety of likes, dislikes, personalities, etc in any fandom. The same with the MLP fandom, there are those who are this, those who are that, those who are the other thing, those who are here, those who are there, etc etc.

So, maybe what gets them defensive is idiots who assume that all of them only like it because they're trying to rape children?

And you sound like you want your deviance to be accepted -for you to be able to post pony pics in peace. To free to live in a world where friendship is magic and all problems are solved within a 1/2 hour timespan (minus commercial breaks). Moreover, you want what all bronies want -to freely tell the world that you love little children not in a sick pervy way -but in a way where each child gets a magic pony ride to a world where each cartoon pony has a non phallic horn sticking out of their forehead. A place where magic is real and sharing happens.

Bender The Offender: Keizer_Ghidorah: rustypouch: It amuses me how instantly defensive bronies become when people question their like of the show.

I think much of the distaste for bronies doesn't just come from the subject matter. They like a show aimed at little girls. Slightly odd, but so what? What really weirds people out is how obsessed the bronies are, how they are proud about it and try to convert us, and the sexualization of cartoon horses.

Funny thing: like in the general population, there is a huge variety of likes, dislikes, personalities, etc in any fandom. The same with the MLP fandom, there are those who are this, those who are that, those who are the other thing, those who are here, those who are there, etc etc.

So, maybe what gets them defensive is idiots who assume that all of them only like it because they're trying to rape children?

Because People in power are Stupid: Dhusk: Who keeps bringing up sexual subject matter and pedophilia?

You just did.

You're very Boobies:

Because People in power are Stupid: Real headline: Pedophile website to lure children shut down.

Hmmmm.

Boobies? Who the fark are you trying to kid, Chester? You'd run howling at the first site of pubescent traits.


Because People in power are Stupid: Keizer_Ghidorah: So now we're doing the "If you're not one of us, THEN YOU'RE ONE OF THEM!!" schtick? Anyone who doesn't talk and act with frothing rage against Bronies is "their kind"? In your mind there are only "us" and "them", not a range of people?

You sound like a Republican.


And you sound like you want your deviance to be accepted -for you to be able to post pony pics in peace. To free to live in a world where friendship is magic and all problems are solved within a 1/2 hour timespan (minus commercial breaks). Moreover, you want what all bronies want -to freely tell the world that you love little children not in a sick pervy way -but in a way where each child gets a magic pony ride to a world where each cartoon pony has a non phallic horn sticking out of their forehead. A place where magic is real and sharing happens.

Am I right?

Well, I'm here to tell you that it's not going to happen, sicko. Not on my watch.


Well, you both just blew your trolling covers. Good effort, I'll admit, but you had to overreach and expose yourselves.

Yeah, that's why the smart trolls go with "thread shiatting," posting once and running for the hills. It's hard to stay in character over multiple posts. Anyway, here's the scorecard for this thread:

Imagine people on an online forum where every response to every thread was a Gilligan's Island picture with some "in joke" relating to the show. Examples:

Riots in Egypt? Gilligan running from headhunters.
Japanese Tsunami? Picture of surfer on Gilligan's Island that rode one.
Global Warming Deniers? Image of Professor denying voodoo and stuck in trance.

Now if this were the case -you would hate these people. In fact add an ultra sensitive victim complex and they are begging to be hated. Bronies are just like that but weirder -like "Furry" weird.

And thank god no such Gilligan's Island meme exists... That show was stupid enough.

This. The concept of a Bronie existing is far less scary than the actual implementation of real bronies. They are scary.
 
2012-12-10 07:10:50 PM
I think another reason why people assume a sexual motivation is because there is no actual substance to the show. It really is a kids show, no matter what bronies will try and tell you.

The actual motivation for bronies is just to create an "in-group" for self-serving reasons. An internet cool club for cool kids. It's pretty narcissistic, but whatever.

If you'd read the rest of the post you partially quoted, your question was answered there.

Liking a cartoon for kids really doesn't bother me. What bothers people is the obsessiveness of some of the fans, how they're insulted when others don't instantly love the show or get annoyed when spammed with pony pics, and the portion of the brony community which participate in clopping, and other pony-related ERP.

Yes, but a site based on bronies isn't going to just have bronies on it. It's going to have adult bronies, and young girls, and when you have that combination, it's going to attract pedos. I wouldn't trust a 3rd party site run by amateurs to not ruin it for Hasbro and Bronies as a whole.

Yes I think so. I think Hasbro are probably a lot like Nintendo in that they very carefully protect their family friendly image. I don't think they would sanction any kind of online interaction with their brand.

That said, I wish fans of franchises could legitimately do this kind of thing, as long as it is not for profit. There's some really great IP's out there that are just gathering dust.

Oh christ, apparently this thread turn into a circle jerk of socially awkward fifteen year olds patting themselves on the back about how 'cool' they are for hating on a cartoon. Sad.

You guys are posting on Fark. That alone will define you as never being cool.

Your shiat isn't even unique. You know how many times I've seen it?

You like Rock n Roll, you're a commie.

You like Star Trek or Star Wars, you're a forever Virgin

You play D & D, you're a satanist

You're a Goth, you're a death-obsessed loser.

You like anime, you're an ultraviolent pervert deviant

You're a gamer, you're a slacker loser and will never amount to anything.

etc, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah.

You know, I was never big into the ponies, I just liked trolling haters, but its pretty clear to me now the bronies are far better people than you lot. You and the shiat you spout pops up every time something new and popular comes along, and you're always wrong. The only true group of losers on the internet who truly endures are the clueless haters.

I had a go at watching the show a while back to see what the fuss was about. Turned me into a fan (and the expressive meme pictures are generally funny too, that didn't hurt). I don't know if I'd lay claim to the title of "brony" or anything, I've no desire to go to conventions or buy lumps of plastic. But seeing the backlash against the dedicated fans made consider why the show exploded the way it did, and I've narrowed it down to a few points.

1. It's a well-done show. Everything about the show is high quality. The humor, animation, songs, voice-acting and overall style/setting, it's clearly a labor of love. It's certainly not a unique cartoon in this respect but this is the solid foundation any fandom.
2. It's a good show. Not good as in repeating the point above, but good in that it purports a set of ideals, sweetness and light and all that jazz. In a world that drowning in anti-heroes, grimdark and sarcasm, a haven setting where you can feel good is becoming more and more rare.
3. It very rarely goes insipid. The show never really stoops down and makes baby-gurgling noises at the audience. The characters speak quickly and with a full vocabulary, and the lessons of each episode fall out naturally from the events.
4. The whole premise of the show is community - Friendship is right there in the title. With a message like that, the sudden blossoming of a whole gaggle of pony fans who take strength and support from each other ought not to be all that surprising!
5. Not as big as the other points, but the "feminist" tone of the show is actually one of the better examples I've seen in how to do it in this form of media. Too many efforts have fallen into the trap of making their message "Girls can do anything boys can do" with the inclusion of such characters as the "gamer/nerd girl" or "badass girl" or "bully girl." Whereas the ponies embrace the much less combative and freer "Girls can do anything they want to do" that is only a synapse away from the lovely equalist idea of "Anyone can be anything they want to be."

And, obviously, there's a lot of good old young adult rebellion going in liking the show. Weird, but it could be worse. Way worse. :)

Anyway. Pictures of ponies, stat!

Reynard: I had a go at watching the show a while back to see what the fuss was about. Turned me into a fan (and the expressive meme pictures are generally funny too, that didn't hurt). I don't know if I'd lay claim to the title of "brony" or anything, I've no desire to go to conventions or buy lumps of plastic. But seeing the backlash against the dedicated fans made consider why the show exploded the way it did, and I've narrowed it down to a few points.


People become fan of the shows because its a good show... good writing, good music, good animation, and a good source to shout outs only adults would get -- the fact that the characters in the show are pastel colored marshmallow equines is completely circumstantial.

They could be sharks and it would still work

Just the opposite here. This fandom shows itself to be obnoxious and divisive, willing to threadshiat what could be an interesting discussion. I have no problem with fandom's many shapes (your kink is not my kink, etc.), and I could care less what plastic you collect, or if you jerk it to pretty cartoon horses, or are just really really REALLY into the morality of a fantasy world. Fly your freak flag proudly. But for crying out loud, can't you admit that an unsupervised online game that will bring together both kids and exuberant adult fans may possibly get a little sketchy somewhere, or admit there is potential for wrongdoing? At the very least, do you really want some 6 year-olds in your raid of Cotton Candy Castle, wiping on Baby Sleipnir until their 8 p.m. bedtime? God, imagine the loot drama.

That's all fandoms. And your "pedophiles will prey on kids using this new thing" fears have been brought up with EVERY SINGLE TOY/SHOW EVER. The Nintendo DS got this, World of WarCraft got it, Disneyland gets it, hell Facebook and Twitter get it. Yes, the potential is there, but that doesn't automatically mean it WILL happen, and it's a slight chance.

And then I srs'd again because sometimes losing control of your brand can be awesome (like, have you seen what DHX Animation's trading for on the Canadian exchange since this thing started?), but even Hasbro has to draw the line somewhere.

Exactly. Which is why every fandom acknowledges that either it's a few freaks, or they try to not get kids mixed into it*. They don't say their fandom is different, that it would never happen, lalalalalaPONIES! Maybe bronies do try to herd kids away from the adult-side of things, I don't know I'm not involved with them. ITT, trying to have a discussion about it leads to reactive shutting down of discussion via trolling and meme. Yeah yeah, welcome to Fark.

Maybe the bronies are reactionary because they're accused so often. This would be another worthwhile discussion. Alas, not meant to be. Guess what I'm saying is, enlighten an outsider who may or may not have those prejudices. Help us learn about your interest so we're not knee-jerky.

Well, it's kinda hard to explain the appeal of the show since whenever you try, you immediately get told you're just lying and trying to excuse being a pedophile... or are secretly an emasculated guy that prances around in a rainbow colored tutu.

Honestly? I don't let what Farkers, specially the troll ones, and their opinions define me. I don't need their approval in order to feel good about myself -- although that does not mean I will just stand on the sidelines if they're attacking others.

I really like the show, I recommend it highly and have shared the episodes at the schools I work at... the librarians will every now and then play the dvds I bought and donated to the library -- I rarely talk about the show in real life, I wont "evangelize", I will only talk about it if they seem they are open to the idea and I will not get upset or throw a fit if they don't like the show. Everyone has different tastes and I respect that.

I try to stay away from the fandom as much as I can. There are parts of the fandom that are really... ugh... but should be noted that every other fandom is the same... be it star trek, sonic, and whatnot...

On the other hand, the fandom is known for supporting a bunch of charities, be it cancer drives, an orphanage in africa and whatnot -- heck, if I recall correctly, there is actually an actual FiM charity registered so that donations are tax deductible... and then they distribute that money to other charities.

Not sure what else I can say...

Truth be told, I post ponies on the NFL because its fun, and because some people throw a fit over something so silly. I bet there would be less ponies posted on the NFL threads (with Captain Steroid, FNB and me being the main culprits) if people were not going all "Ack! A pony! My day is ruined now"

^points upwards. Guilty as charged on the memetic front, but in my defense, I was only trying to recap the thread.

It's good animation, it's one of the few respites from cynicism that exist on modern TV, but it's not so saccharine that it's unwatchable by adults (even without the cultural references the animators throw in to make it watchable by parents who have yet to become one with the Herd.)

Maybe the bronies are reactionary because they're accused so often. This would be another worthwhile discussion. Alas, not meant to be. Guess what I'm saying is, enlighten an outsider who may or may not have those prejudices. Help us learn about your interest so we're not knee-jerky.

Kind of. Part of the reason we can be so obnoxious on the 'net is that there's nothing you can say to a brony (Sorry, I'll be more serious with my links going forward) that he/she hasn't already said to themselves, and that applies from ages 18 to 48.

On the serious note, there've been several surveys of the brony community that try to address just WTF's up with us as a subculture. It's not often you get to catch a fandom in its infancy and track its entire arc from its inception to its ultimate rejection as lame and/or old hat. For this, Edwards and Redden are probably your best source, as they've done three comprehensive surveys of the community, and are going longitundal to track its evolution over the 3-5 year arc of the phenomenon. We're in year 2-3 of the fad, and the third season is now widely speculated to be the end of the televised show, because 65 (26+26+13) episodes is enough for syndication. It's too early to tell if it's going to be a 3-5 year fad that ends with the end of the last season, or if it's something that can sustain itself long after the end of the series, like Red Dwarf and Dr. Who did between reboots.

To address another semi-serious question, there's always been some debate within the fandom over R34. Some are justifiably grossed out by it. Others point and laugh. (Can't say I know any who've actually clopped to the stuff, though by R34 they must exist.) I'm in the point-and-laugh crowd, but I'm on the far upper end of the age demographic, and like most of us here on Fark, I've seen some shiat, so I'm more likely to laugh things off than I am to take them seriously. But I'm not so old that I don't remember back when I was in high school and then university, when everything seemed more important than it really was. The rule of thumb in the community seems pretty reasonable: don't be a dick about it. Make all the R34 jokes you like at the bar, but keep it at the bar where the audience is 21+.

*maybe not Twilight fandom, who knows with them

Well, sure, but goddamnit, we are trying.

The episode "Party of One" manages to be both a sensitive and funny portrayal of paranoid schizophrenia, right up to, and including, Pinkie Pie experiencing hallucinations. (Thought you were gonna go straight to Cupcakes, but yeah, Alex S. for the win...)

And, that's another thing. For those not yet part of the Herd, this has been the most insanely prolific and creative fandom in the history of, umm, ever. The show's fun, but for me, it's the fan-produced music, artwork, and video that the show has inspired that makes it 20% cooler. The linked video is made from snippets of the show, but the audio is entirely original and fan-made. Original pony-related tracks have become part of the Rock Band franchise. Living Tombstone, Ashcorp, Alex S., IBringDaLULZ, Eurobeat Brony, Aviators, Mandopony, just do some random googling and I can guarantee you'll find something you like whether you've ever seen the show or not. I've got more hours of pony-related MP3 than I'll likely listen to in a lifetime.

I think he'd approve. Many in the brony community probably haven't even heard of Lehrer, and if they haven't... well, it's about time they did. When memes propagate at rates best described in terms of exponential growth (that's mathematics), we call it "going viral". Whatever we get, we share. (I got it from Agnes.)

Back on that serious thing (thanks, Duck, you gave me the excuse to get drunk and spend the entire night in ponyverse, and you have no idea how badly I needed that after today at the day job) for a moment. if you've ever tried to deal with cowboy coders, agilistas, and the QA department, you'll appreciate the episode "Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000."

I can't comment about "bronies," but that set-up is just begging for a lawsuit. Most websites that might have pre-teen users have some type of monitoring or age restrictions. It could be fine, but what corporation would take that risk?

Yet here we are. Everyone around town seems to know me as "the pony guy" and not a single person ridicules me for it. Most think it's hysterical still. Fine by me, I like wearing bright poppy t-shirts over the usual dude who wears dark colors, or white, with an "edgy" screen print.

Thinking of decking out one of my Pon3 shirts in EL wire to make it even brighter. Just not sure if I want to risk ruining it.

Yet here we are. Everyone around town seems to know me as "the pony guy" and not a single person ridicules me for it. Most think it's hysterical still. Fine by me, I like wearing bright poppy t-shirts over the usual dude who wears dark colors, or white, with an "edgy" screen print.

Thinking of decking out one of my Pon3 shirts in EL wire to make it even brighter. Just not sure if I want to risk ruining it.


Well, i want more rarity tshirts but most of them are not good vis a vis others...

My wife has Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash shirts that are pretty badass. Good quality pony shirts are tough to come by it seems. But when they're done right, they're just so poppy and colorful. Perfect rave shirts.

It's a decient show, which still makes it better than 99% of what's on TV anyway.

I will be honest- I dont get the whole pony thing. I do find many pics of them funny, which is nice.
However- I really dont get any hate directed towards those who like my little pony- its just stupid.
I mean, so what ? does folks liking the show, or dressing up like a character affect your life in any damn way ? NO.
Hells bells- I collect LOTR dolls and figures and use Barbie dolls in beer displays, and many might find that creepy as I am 44, but nobody is hurt.
And you really would not believe how many kids have asked their parents why they cant have the barbies on the ( insert beer name ) display because they looked like they were having fun.
Not to mention the awkward pause when mommy or daddy explains that the two girls were collecting the shells and comparing them to see who had the coolest one ( I use real sea shells, from the seashore, that I bought from Sally- thats why ken and ken or barbi and whomever are stiting so close ....

I wish I could freak everyone out with the LOTR dolls, but.... they sadly MUST stay in the package.
Anyhow- I always laugh at pics posted in Pony threads, you damn Bronies, so please- Carry on.

No matter how pathetic you think the bronies are, being an obsessive hypocritical hater will always make you worse.

I will answer in the Brony style... with a picture

In short, no.

The bronies put up pictures of ponies.

The first chance you got in this thread, you brought up the subject of pedophilia, and now you post the picture of a cartoon child.

I'm getting the vibe here that the bronies are not the one we should be worried about here.

The first thing the trolls and haters always bring up when "discussing" MLP is pedophilia. They're convinced that anyone over 5 years old only pretends to like it so they can rape children. How? They never explain, they just keep screaming "PEDOS!". They're the ones obsessed with child rape.


Which is especially indicative considering that if they were REALLY concerned they would be yelling about "Furries" and "Bestiality" and the like. But nooooo, they bring up the subject of "Pedophilia". A good shrink would have a field day with these people.

/Don't misunderstand me. I don't mean that Bronies are deviants.
//just that the obvious target is ignored.

FirstNationalBastard: Broncos threads are fair game for Ponies. Hell, it usually says so in the headline.


And the ponies normally only appear in the thread while the game is on

Also, you're a gentleman and a scholar, thank you for the TF
