Hey guys.
Ponytime guys.
You know where we don't have these rules?
In the pony thread, you should go there...
(Follow the rules posting content, they are for the betterment of FJ)

Except the fact that it goes by so ******* fast we can't have nice convos.

I've filled entire threads just talking to people, what are you talking about?

Why are politics on funnyjunk funner to follow than real life's?
User avatar #25 to #24 - thephantur [OP](04/02/2012) [-]
Because we don't lie and, instead, present our points without it being hidden behind deceit and double meanings?
User avatar #26 to #25 - herecomesjohnny (04/02/2012) [-]
nah, i'd say it's cause we got captchas....

1) Even it out, don't overdo it. Giving 30 thumbs up because haters give it 5 down is stretching the argument of "we do it because haters do the opposite." It would have been +10 if you had waited another 10 minutes, but I can see where you're coming from.

2) I like the analogy, and you're right. Remember though, even it out, but don't overdo it.

3) I still think they could be contained to the pony thread, where ONLY the welcoming people would be, instead of taking up a page 4 slot and getting a bunch of people hating.

4) It means No posts of ponies made in a pony creator, in which that is the entire post.

5) Pretty sure most everyone can agree on this one.

6) Those are fine, at least in my opinion. I haven't even seen enough of them to consider them a problem, and yes, everyone has those inside jokes.

7) I think the music posts are fine. That Smile song is actually pretty good.

8) I've always been against drawings of any kind on here. I had a comment get roughly 200 thumbs down because I criticized some pokemon drawings once.

9) If artwork must be posted, putting it together instead of single pictures is agreeable.

10) That's just silly.

Evening it out will be hard, like you said, people will overdo it. We are not a single entity, we are made up of individuals.

The best way to solve this, in my opinion, is to ask the community to come together peacefully, not try to shove rules down our throats. Just ask us to nicely point out reposts and ask the OP to delete the content quickly. It's the best method as far as I can see. Asking us to moderate our thumbs would prove to be challenging, I already refrain from giving out green thumbs many times for that sole purpose.

Continued from post.

7.)No Fan Music - use self posts. There are much better sites for these submissions.
Why not? They're well made, many nonbronies even enjoy them. I don't feel the need to go digging through thousands of YT vids for songs when FJ can bring me amazing work. Are there better sites? Yes... just like there are better sites for 4chan posts... like, say, 4chan... or facts posts like... wikipedia...

8.)No Random Artwork - use self posts. There are much better sites for these submissions.
See above.

9.)If you insist on artwork please make it a collab. No single posts.
This can be arranged...

10.)No hating. For or against.
Once again, tell that to the haters.

11.)Have fun!
Very hard to do. I'm sorry, but I really don't see you commenting here often so I can safely say that the fun we have here is generally in the comments. What you're doing is killing it, joking it to death...

We don't like these rules. We are restrained as we are, shackled to a corner of a site. Let us have this little bit of freedom.

I'm done for tonight, peace.

1) When I say pony posts, I mean something with ponies on them. I've seen a difference. It's not exactly the context or where it came from, but the physical presence of ponies that lead towards hate.

Just go to the page's top rated in 30 days and see how many of our top related actually has pony content. I see 7, counting ponnig and 2 posts with just one frame containing an MLP logo on a computer screen.

2) I understand, but people will be people. They won't stop.

3) That's the thing. Pony thread goes by way too fast. Unless you're already well known, good luck in hell of being noticed and responded too most of the time.

I actually did a bit of an experiment. I went on and pretended to be extremely depressed... 3 comments. I go and see a well known individual saying good night... well golly, 3x more replies. I tried posting normally... 0 replies. The ponythread moves too fast for people to notice and respond to everyone, so they pick and choose ones that stick out, namely the well known.

6) Yes it got done to death, but as long as we keep our "20% cooler" within our little realm, it shouldn't bleed out. The reason arrow to the knee jokes died was because it went outside of Skyrim's fanbase into the minds of people who have never even played video games. Mass Effect's most popular joke is garrus and his calibrations. Every single youtube vid on it has a post dealing with it if garrus shows up... yet it's still funny, because it's still in the community.

7) and 8) If there was a way to keep track of spammed reposts would it help? If we, as a community, could come together and kindly, not like the frontpage where we call the OP a fag for a repost, but kindly told the person that they are reposting, would it help? Many of us would love to continue to have artwork and music, but I understand if listening to the same song 3x in a day might be aggravating.

What you should do to help enforce and to make us all happy about the rules is to ask us as a community. Tell us to keep track of reposts so that they aren't too prevalent. That we can do, just don't tell us to get rid of all of our beloved articles that we hold dear.

It was how you brought it to us. Stating 11 (10) rules right away put us on the defensive right away.

If the thread had the rules taken out and it was just asking us to clean up and asking us to help, you'd have had more supporters than you could imagine.

Excuse me, I need to run to class. Will continue when I get back.

I see your point about thumbing up pony posts, but if we don't thumb up just because ponies, then the good content will still get thumbed up like whatever pony posts get past 500 or so thumbs, whereas the type of pony content that pisses people off and make them hate us will, as you said, be smitten to oblivion and eventually people will learn to post good content. As for "Hi, I'm a brony" posts and the like, we have the pony thread for that, which can also double as a place to share artwork and stuff without attracting swarms of haters and essentially feeding this enormous ********* .
User avatar #16 to #14 - blarglestheclown (04/02/2012) [-]
I got 409 on one post of mine and 253 down thumbs......Haters will hate no matter what good content or not my friend...
User avatar #13 - frienderman (04/02/2012) [-]
On the note about thumbing up only because it's ponies: you should only thumb something un-funny back up to zero thumbs, not up to 20 something. If it is at zero and it isn't funny, don't thumb it.
User avatar #34 - cowboypony (04/03/2012) [-]
Hahahaha how bout no? Rules are made to be broken, and break them I shall! I was reading through funnyjunk.com/channel/ponytime/Regarding+ponytime/BdrLGOq/ and read the rules. Does the guy NOT want us to have any fun? The whole time I was reading I was thinking "Well **** you too" Theres MY two cents. Hi again ThePhantur :3
User avatar #35 to #34 - thephantur [OP](04/03/2012) [-]
Hello. I'm actually attempting for a middle ground or I was. Guidelines for people to look towards but not enforced, leave it to the ponies to decide.

But it ended up blowing up in my face.

So I'm saying **** it and I'm done. Let this ********* blow over or until my old allies and people hating me because of Sunset's front page content drive me out.
User avatar #36 to #35 - cowboypony (04/03/2012) [-]
Nah you won't get driven out. The bronies love you. The haters hate you. It's as it always should be. The only difference is that Wisp is now a ******* douche.
User avatar #37 to #36 - thephantur [OP](04/03/2012) [-]
He's really not a bad guy. He just has problems wording what he wants into an acceptable tone.

More commanding than friendly.

I'm getting random red thumbs out of nowhere, everything I post on a controversial topic got red thumbed into oblivion despite what I say... hell I posted a comment AGREEING with the OP and it hit -5 in minutes.


I'm just going to go play Mass Effect...
User avatar #38 to #37 - cowboypony (04/03/2012) [-]
Yeah, just let this **** blow over. DO you have an xbox?

Haters will not stop thumbing down pony-related stuff. Never. Don't even try to convince them. Therefore, rules №1 and 2 are canceled.
