The majority of your content is **** though. There are brony sites for just about everything, go post your oc ponys, and art on one of them.
let this site be the one where you only post funny content using pony's as a medium for the funny.

Lol I don't give a ****. You obviously can't read. Read my content and how there is barely any funny on FJ anyways.

Laters, haters gonna ******* hate.

So basically; "Other content isn't funny, so we don't have to be funny either."

I hate that mindset with a passion. It's a site for funny content. Instead of using that as the only argument against someone saying pony posts aren't funny, why not make them funny?
The pony thread is always open for your "art" and "OC ponies"(which btw, all look the same).

I like the new rules. No other channel would collapse, or really even be affected, if similar rules were imposed on them.

Stoner humour... "if it's not funny for everyone, don't post". Dolan comics... etc...

It's a site for funny content that hasn't been funny for months. Even if we were funny, we'd still get negative thumbs. Things won't change.

FunnyJUNK. People keep forgetting the second half of the site's name.

To me, art is art. They don't look the same to me. Apparently you don't draw or do art related things and can't see the difference.

tl;dr: Doesn't matter, addressed with my post. FJ has been dead for months, **** the rules.

A drawing of a pony isn't funny to anyone. Don't even try to say it is.

Again, you excuse it by saying other content isn't funny. The negative thumbs from people who thumb down because ponies is fewer than the positive thumbs from people who thumb up because ponies. No post in ponytime stays negative unless it's making fun of bronies.

The "Oc ponies" are, for the most part, made on the same site. They may be different colors, but they are all made on the same template.

I'd like to disagree, I've spent enough time here to see more than a few pony posts stay red.

Anyway, I don't think 20-50 thumbs hurts anyone. >>; Especially since there aren't many repeat posters.

Plus, it's still a good argument. If everyone does it, it's the norm, deal with it.

To you. Negative mind set.

There are 8 pony posts in the negative, going up to page 10 of newest uploads in ponytime. All of them are on pages 1-5. From that, I can easily infer that any that are negative now will be positive later.

All pony content sitting at 20-50 thumbs means it takes up most of page 4/5 from front page. So it doesn't "hurt" anyone, but anyone who usually skips pony content suddenly finds themselves skipping 10 posts in a row.

Ponytime is more active than other channels. It may be the norm for people to water their gardens, but people will think the guy who waters his garden 20 times a day is a bit off.

Yes, to me. I don't see the creativity in using that template pony and just changing the colors. The one you use most of the time is the only one that doesn't look like a blank template that was colored in and posted with "I made this OC pony guys, tell me what you think," which is actually good.

You infer. Great, if all facts were based on inferences we'd be stuck in the dark ages.

Oh gee, hitting "--->" 10 times takes SO much effort. Doesn't bother anyone who's willing to put down their finger 9 extra times.

So... you're saying it's how other people perceive us that's at fault?

You're not a brony. Have you used the program?

There are those, like me, who put a **** ton of effort into making these.There's thousands of ways to make your pony on the site... that's like saying all humans look the same. Hurrdurr they all have arms, legs, etc... as a template but just colored differently with different hair and sizes. >>;

I infer that pony posts don't stay negative based on the fact that every post past the 5th page of ponytime is positive.
Pressing next 10 more times than usual doesn't take effort; it's the principle of the matter that they have to skip a bunch of specific posts. You bring up stoner humor a lot. If you had to skip 10 stoner posts in a row, you'd probably think "wow, this is annoying. Why am I having to skip so many stoner posts."

I said it because you say it's the norm to be unfunny. It's also the norm to water your garden. If everyone is unfunny, but a specific group is unfunny more often than everyone else, they will stick out.

No, I haven't used the program. I just don't see the need to make content saying "hey guys this is my pony that I made" and that's the entirety of the post.

Because the rest die and aren't seen because no one goes into the red sea.

I've skipped 5 stoner posts in a row before, not 10, but it was mildly annoying, yes, but it took all of 2 seconds to get past all 5 and I quickly forgot it ever happened.

No it's just the amount of activity which makes it look that way. Once again, other people's mindsets.

I see no problem with people posting OC ponies... many of them fall to -6 or less thumbs and are never seen again.

I was actually prepared to do the same. If the rules get enforced, let us give it some time. Once ponytime gaps its last breath, we will start anew. A place without rules except FJ's rules.

And it was like family to us so we will give it its moment of silence after it falls... then we carry on the legacy elsewhere.

I don't think anyone likes these new rules.   
If you decided to make a new channel.. I'm all in.

Then you would have to cover the costs of owning a server, the monthly charges, the bugs and the glitches that everyone bitches about, and be treated with such disrespect because the users are "under the impression" you're not doing ****. When really, you spend every free waking moment trying to improve the site.
Worth it?

ok, first of your incoherent, i cant figure out what side your on. so I'll guess that your a brony.

the problem with pony posts is that they get 30-50 thumbs almost all the time if you post the in this channel. this is due to people thumbing content not because its funny but because its pony related. this means that the 4th-5th page get flooded with pony post. and it gets annoying when you have to skip through 10 pony posts to get something
funny.

and if your saying you want to be able to post as much **** content as possible then you are the thing that is ruining funny junk.
