"great content purge of 2009"[edit]

Just for clarification. That refers to this, right?--Emerald Claw (talk) 07:06, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

In all seriousness...[edit]

I'm rather new to this wiki, so I'm not sure if it's meant to document a forum or a bunch of tabletop RP systems. If it IS the latter, though, [I] [am] [aware] [of] [five] Tabletop roleplaying game systems and [one] original board game based off the show. Just, ya'know, so you know.

What the FUCK.[edit]

My god. How has this talk page reached this size? Anyway, the best approach is to describe the entire matter at hand semi-objectively, with a healthy dose of sarcasm and arrogance thrown in. Additionally, throw in related Warhammer 40k and /tg/ tidbits and media as appropriate. --MercWithMouth (talk) 23:54, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

OHH! And also... someone really has to modify the 'PrettyMarineDreadnaught VS Pony' pic so that it has an AngryMarineDreadnaught instead. --MercWithMouth (talk) 23:54, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

On the contrary. It shows that the ponies are such pussies that even the shittiest marine chapter effortlessly trolls them.--Boss Ballkrusha (talk) 00:01, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Well that goes without saying. After all, they're fucking ponies. Nah, this isn't about trolling the brony freaks. This is about bringing the seething contempt for the pony crap into visual form. No Astartes are more fitting for characterizing naked and unadulterated resentment than the Angry Marines. This holds especially true in those instances which call for violently and unceremoniously eviscerating a pastel-colored horse. --MercWithMouth (talk) 00:58, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Someone also needs to draw a pair of Angry Marines and Pretty Marines dreads brofisting as they yank apart a pony, then, to show /tg unified in the face of the corruption. --Boss Ballkrusha (talk) 01:06, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Glad to see the "OHH LOOK A PONY YOUR DAY IS RUINED" phenomenon is still observable, even on /tg/. Tactical Mehren (talk) 01:45, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
↑Pffft. Now that's an exaggeration. Look, the very phenomena of adult men -- from sites like 4chan of all places -- showing interest (never mind ENTHUSIASTIC interest) in a franchise about pastel horses targeted towards 10year old girls is precisely the sort of thing that is supposed to ridicule and lampoon to one degree or another. And yes, with a dash and smidgen of objective exposition thrown in as well. That established, the only question remaining is how to best carry out such mockery. I submit to you that the Angry Marines would be a better vehicle for doing so than the Pretty Marines. --MercWithMouth (talk) 03:06, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
↑Personally, lampooning and ridiculing grown men watching a show for little girls is something that falls into Encyclopedia Dramatica's role. Besides, we're just suppose to discuss it's relevance to /tg/ and frankly MLP has had very little in the way of impacting /tg/ as a whole....then again we have a fairly detailed furry article so on second thought, throw relevance out the window. Tactical Mehren (talk) 03:43, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
"Know thy enemy" and all that, but it's true. For me, the fact that we have let it swell into this bloated mess is a testament to bronies' ability to spread their venom everywhere. Drowning it with sarcasm and humor is the only way to keep the infection in check.
And.... hey! It's fun to lampoon. --MercWithMouth (talk) 15:43, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

I remember once reading a book that said "great evil has more of an impact than great good". While I don't believe MLP is evil, this is, ultimately, the reason the page has reached this size: /tg/, in general, puts far more effort into things it hates rather than things it likes. Seriously, most of the pages on things we like are long because they have stories on them, while the ones we hate have more detail on what we consider wrong with them. -- SFH (talk) 21:21, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Edit war[edit]

Would the two of you shitheads learn to kiss and make up already instead of bitching at each other? If you want to cluck like a chicken with down's syndrome then go pollute /b/. Believe it or not we have standards here.Crazy Cryptek (talk) 14:18, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

You mean the small disagreement between gentlemen that spanned three whole edits and ended yesterday afternoon? Dude, chill out. --

Idiots like that always come back for more.Crazy Cryptek (talk) 15:44, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Really? Three (threeeeee...) edits are considered an edit war now? Chill out Crypt. If it does make you feel better, I've stopped already. Oh, right, thanks for the idiot. -Silver (talk) 19:23, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Oh God No[edit]

And so, it has spread from /co/ to /tg/ and other boards.

Nothing is sacred. Everything is corrupted.

I say delete the page, permaban everyone who edited on it, and we never speak of this again. Biggus Berrus 21:59, 22 October 2011 (BST)

If we delete the page, fags will simply bring it back. The /tg/ way is to cover it in sarcasm. We add fail and heresy tags, and use it as practice for our hilarious writing. AmbullFucker

I think the fail tag clashes with first sentence of the fourth paragraph of the ==On /tg/==. Personally I believe the latter is correct. "The general reaction to any mention of ponies on /tg/ varies between simple exuberance, to indifference and apathy, to Khorne-pausing RAGE depending on how well you roll, though the second scenario is more prevalent overall." Considering it is a bannable 'offense' to post ponies on /tg/, heresy tag is fine.

These fucks can bring it back as much as possible, it's still shit, unrelated to /tg/ (except for the sheer amounts of RAGE it generates when bronies inject it into /tg/), and just shows the fucks they can creep into our website, and unlike the furry page, it doesn't beat bastards with a stick with every letter. The Chakat and weeabo pages are tolerable because they just beat the subject matter with a wooden bat that has two nails in it. Of course, what i am suggesting here is we keep and then beat it. Hard. With a Power Mace. A Dreadnought-sized Power Mace. Because nothing brings a smile to my heart like beating on furries, Mary Sues, and that sort of fag.--Taumanta (talk) 15:30, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Youtube links[edit]

I think it is HILARIOUS that people keep editing the youtube links to "improve" the character descriptions of the mane 6 core 7 characters of MLP:FiM. --NotBrandX 15:28, 22 October 2011 (BST)

I edited to add in a bit of /TG/ humor and shoehorn in more bluelinks, and also because some of the videos were TL;DR. I'm sure somebody will steamroll my edits in a day or so, and then we'll have a bitter revert war and somebody will get banned. In other words, progress! --Petro
The floggings will continue, until morale improves. -- Jaimas

Fuck This Page[edit]

The article was obviously written by a ponyfag who's in denial over the fact that most of /tg/ either hates the show or feels apathetic about it. It has nothing to do with traditional games or anything /tg/ related, it's just there because the world shittiest fanbase can't shut up about their show. --

Which is why we must rip the piss as much as possible. It is the /tg/ way. AmbullFucker

Indeed. --

Right then, sarcasm added. Stop deleting the article, it'll simply get re-posted by some bronie. Instead, add more lulz. AmbullFucker


Might've accidentally deleted some of your stuff due to starting to revise before you began. ----

It's all good bro, it's all good. AmbullFucker

Oh for fuck's sake. We've edited the hell out of this article to avoid this kind of bullshit. -- Jaimas
It's never going to be a nice and fair article without getting into an edit-war. Instead, be more cynical about the thing you love, and add more 'jokes'. A funny and sarcastic article is better compromise than frequently having no article at all. If it reads as praise, it'll get rage edited by some knob-jockey. But then you know this, surely, your Jaimas, god of the wiki. AmbullFucker
Your version didn't read as "jokes", it read as a diatribe of hate. It wasn't really funny at all. You can still be funny without being relentlessly negative, and you can still make it clear that MLP is generally poorly received on /tg/ without calling the entire fanbase paedophiles. It's also helpful to be informative, and given that 4chan spawned the whole phenomenon in the first place I think it is a good idea to have a brief overview of the history.
In my personal experience, /tg/'s reaction to pony these days consists of a few people immediately going "PONYSHIT TROLL SAGE REPORT" while everyone else just gets on with their day (but I can hardly claim to be on it all the time, so perhaps sometimes it is worse. I certainly believe it was much worse in the past during the height of the drama). Believe it or not, if someone posts about their pony RPG or whatever they are not intrinsically trying to troll you. They might just like ponies and RPGs, and they are not alone in this. -- 15:17, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Here we go again. Article re-edited with less name calling. I still say we should excise the 'characters list' or possible replace it with /tg/ ponies, if any exist. - AmbullFucker

I don't think any do. I'm not overwhelmingly attached to the characters section either, and I'd probably chuck it in favour of a better overview of the history of the phenomenon. -- 16:20, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
I wrote some text. I'm not going to start hacking at the main article with wild abandon because that way darkness and edit wars lie, but people can look at it and maybe we can assemble an article like civilised people. Also observe the results of my compulsive tendency to alliterate wildly whenever I'm discussing ponies. -- 16:39, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
Minor revisions, more images. Review. -- 17:52, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

I like it, though we should keep the existing gallery. --AmbullFucker

Glad to see ponyrage is still alive and well. You can trim it, but I suspect it will all be re-added by bronies and trolls as long as the popularity endures (took people about two days to shit up my beautiful Matt Ward rewrite). Thats the problem with wikis, the wrong people keep editing them. --Petro 17:19, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
And fucking Petro made that shit nice, too. --Jaimas 13:04, 18 November 2011

I'd post the gif of the Equestrinatus, but it's just over 4mb. Feelsbadman.jpg Biggus Berrus 23:11, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Damn, this article got nerfed and streamlined harder than Cruddace's tyranids. while i don't think there's anything inherently wrong with the show, there are all kinds of things wrong with being a brony - and the way i read it, this version of the article directs practically all of the negativity towards them. this is a good thing, as that's where the rage comes from, really. Not sure if it's heresy AND rage tag worthy - i'd drop the former.

still, a better revision, all round. --Kirby2567 00:06, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

There's nothing wrong with the show, but it's not okay to identify yourself as a fan? Perhaps you should try and remember that by their very nature the most extreme subset of any cult fanbase is the part you will have the most exposure to. You can't tar an entire group with the same brush just because a small part of it wants to have sex with horses, especially when membership is attained by saying "I am X" - the Anonymous movement suffers from the same problem.
At any rate the article is more negative than I'd have liked to make it but apparently it needs to be in order to get people to stop fucking around with it, and also I may have gotten a little carried away with opportunities to alliterate. -- 01:46, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
It's the "Brony" tag really. any one who likes the show automatically gets associated with he vocal idiots of the fandom. just look at any of the /co/ pony general threads - the fans there detest being called bronies because of the infamy that goes with it, preferring the term "ponyfag". just youtube search "brony pizza hut" - lulz and facepalms ensue.

--Kirby2567 02:40, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

I still say the best solution is to fix it to a more-or-less neutral article, then lock that shit, like we did with 4e. The bitching by certain parties and blanket attempts to drag the article further off-course and blank it are testament to this. It's the only way we're going to stop having us coming through here and seeing fifty dozen changes a day here in what's clearly blossomed into an edit war. -- Jaimas 11:18, 20 November 2011 (EST)

Current page seems decent. At least it no longer has the "Most of /tg/ loves it but a small base of vocal troll hate it" part. I support the idea of locking it. --

I agree. Lock it. And also make redirects from Friendship Is Magic and MLP and lock those too. AmbullFucker

added a teeny tiny bit. article seems much more neutral than before, gives a good perspective on /tg/'s views on it, and is worth a chuckle - what every non-specifically /tg/ related page should be like. i say lock it. --Kirby2567 13:10, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Ponyfinder now has a page. Lock it down, lock it all down before the infection spreads. AmbullFucker

Lock this page. Damn bronies keep flooding it with unnecessary pictures and stupid captions.


-Captain Indrick Boreale

Can we please remove the bloody "Emperor pony" images?I want to just remove them anyway,but I figured I should ask you guys in-case removing them makes even more of that shit appear.

Why? They're tg related. I'm no great fan of ponies but I don't see why we need to delete them unless they're copies. -- 17:38, 9 August 2012 (BST)

I was willing to let the bloody ponies desecrate the Imperial Guard,the Space Marines and the Adeptus loseus techius,but the emperor? related or not,that stuff makes me sick.If we invaded their wiki(They must have one,most things seem to) with images of -Insert faction with flamers here- destroying them with said flamers,it would be taken down pretty quickly,pony related or not.I'll admit that I see where your coming from with the tg related part,and I don't mean to sound like an ass,but there is a line to which I will let those hippies desecrate The Imperium of Man with their bullshit and Turning the Emperor into those Unholy creatures crosses it.I apologize for being an annoying prick.but I really do not like those fuckers.(At least this shit,I would probably be live and let live if they stayed in their own world,but I'm not,because they didn't.)

What, of all the things it's Emprah Celestia that gets your pony goat? That's a bit... underwhelming, actually. Biggus Berrus 23:22, 9 August 2012 (BST)

Well I could have been completely honest and said that I personally wanted all of them removed and that I would then wish slow,painful,miserable deaths on any brony that didn't have the decency to stay in their own little world where "Friendship" and peace actually work,because we had the decency to stay in ours(mainly,the only tg stuff that has ever featured murdering horses is 40k because of the bronies that didn't leave it well enough alone)but that wouldn't be reasonable and would have me executed for suspected Khorne Worship.Maybe that isn't so bad now that I think about it,they're isn't a Kharn the fucking Betrayer pony........yet.(Note I just added on:That's going to fucking happen now,because I mentioned it.)

I really don't get why people are so mad with the crossovers, the art put into them's not that bad and I frankly find the prospect hilarious. Also anon, I don't really advise you getting mad over simple ponyfication. Plus, this is a satirical wiki, take everything with a pinch of salt.
Tactical Mehren 02:54, 14 August 2012 (BST)

Also True,but if we "grimdarkificatied" Hippie Land and had them be -Insert faction and chosen choice of fucking up things they don't like- then I'm sure they would be pissed.Plus there's 1 pic of anything dieing and a crap load of things that get to live.Which isn't quite a neutral page as the hippies like it when things live.And well,us sane people like things to die.Especially that blue bastard and his Khornate Knights.

That's because bronies are by and large myopic obsessives who freak out when you criticize their precious cartoon. Fa/tg/uys are made of sterner stuff, of beard and iron. We've been watching fandoms rise and fall since before that term even meant anything. If /tg/ wishes to be the little girl for a while whatever. It isn't the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last. --Petro 18:43, 14 August 2012 (BST)
You're a funny guy, Petro, because, as you can clearly see from edit history, fa/tg/uys are going to get buttmad about this, just like they were buttmad about 4e. --Zecro 00:21, 15 August 2012 (BST)
Actually, on /tg/ itself, fa/tg/uys aren't really that buttmad over MLP, mostly neutral. Infact, they can make a sensible conversation about it than /mlp/ ever could. And going back to 1d4chan, the shitstorm about it died months ago already after the page got re-written. Tactical Mehren 01:51, 15 August 2012 (BST)

Play Nice With Others[edit]

Apparently some retard was never taught how to play with the other children. Clearly, some people likes this page, be it for ironic/parody, masochistic/self deprecation reasons or just because they're raging bronies. Erasing what other people put time and effort into creating is dickish and uncool.

If anyone had this page saved please repost it.-SkyDog 23:03 14 August 2012

  • This dick needs blocking. User: He's just a troll! -SkyDog 23:53 14 August 2012

Sept 28th rewrite[edit]

I saw a report of a big update by some anonymous, got my flamethrower ready... and instead of 'LULZ U SUK' or white-knighting, I found a thoughtful critique. Even mentions how /mlp/ is related to /tg/'s drawfag purge that summer the mods went crazy. Thank you for that. --NotBrandX (talk) 18:15, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Anonfag checking in[edit]

I've never been an MLP fan, but deleting the work of others wholesale is shitty.

/pol/ vs /mlp/[edit]

Personally, I think that /mlp/ is more normal than /pol/ (more on that later), but it's not a big deal. I'm not particularly confident about it because, in the end, it is a personal opinion. If you think that /pol/ is more adjusted than /mlp/, I have no way of arguing with you. As to why I think that /mlp/ is better adjusted to society, it is fourfold. First, /mlp/ isn't a containment board. They are capable of having somewhat normal interactions with other human beings without everything in their life being about ponies (unlike, say, /pol/ or furries, ironically, since there's so much overlap). Second, they aren't all furries (although there are quite a lot of them, especially on 4chan); the majority are innocently interested in a cute adventure world about ponies. Third, /pol/ is a containment board. They are totally incapable of having any kind of conversation without it reverting to GAS THE KIKES, RACE WAR NOW! Finally, it is worth noting the actual content of /pol/; they are a cesspool of what is largely believed to be the worst philosophy in all of human history, and they are incapable of treating the majority of the world's population with some semblance of dignity, either because they're inferior or because they are actively trying to exterminate the "white race." The fact of the matter is, /tg/ can have some kind of conversation with /mlp/ because we can both appreciate a good pony RPG and there are a world of possible things to talk about. We cannot have a talk with /pol/ because all /pol/ can talk about is how more than half of /tg/'s population is "impure" in some way. Again, this isn't a huge deal, so just use your best judgement. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 14:57, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Oh, good, it isn't just me.

Never mind that there might be some actual (even if indirect) /pol/ apologism going on here, the article's not only super-political, but pretty above and beyond the call of duty in both that regard AND in general. We already had to deal with someone trying to turn the SJW page into some bizarre anti-SJW dossier (as if someone comes to a fucking /tg/ wiki for a primary source on that matter); honestly the only reason we even HAVE the page to begin with is because it's a general Internet phenomenon which /tg/ has had dealings with particular to the board and (mostly) the hobby that defines it - and I honestly think we need to keep that same energy and severely compress, if not outright trim some of this shit down, because a screed on autism would fail to meet even THAT criteria. --LGX-000 (talk) 00:51, 7 March 2019 (UTC) [edited 02:45, 7 March 2019 (UTC)]

TBH everything I wrote was on a lark and entirely unserious (although I think the sociological comparison has some kind of merit, but admittedly, it really is not on /tg/-topic, except maybe the spergy little Slaaneshi-pony 40K references I put in (compare my silly Chris-chan fanfic which I'm going to move to it's own page or put somewhere more appropriate), but still, whatever); if the community feels like paring it down or eliminating it because it is probably more suited to ED (where I've also written), then that's not a problem for me. A debate on the merits of National Socialism here would certainly be absurd and I'm kind of surprised that Kracked Mynd even went that far (although we've bumped heads on far less serious matters regarding uncouth language, which is another thing entirely and a subject I'd actually be much more likely to argue about than this--the memeing here is kind of a random take on memes, as it were, any controversy about "policing" of language that is casually used in random articles here and there and such is a very different kettle of fish for a variety of reasons.) That being said, I don't think the article is political at all -- see the caption on the Nazi-pony meme I put in the mlp&pol section, which just highlights the absurdity of the whole thing and honestly is making fun of both rather equally (I'm sure actually Nazis would be outraged to be labeled a "fandom," for instance, or a much broader political spectrum would take exception to the comparison to BronyCon of a rally that was supposed to make a serious political point and [...say we redact entirely any debate about its merits...] making fun of it by putting it on that level) ALTHOUGH /mlp/ is 100% a "containment board," but again, that's a silly thing to argue about, agree to disagree, 4chan politics aren't our purpose here either. Based Tzeentch (talk) 02:58, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

>4chan politics aren't our purpose here either

Not unless it directly impacts /tg/ in some manner, no, and that's the crux of my concerns here, which is that the article's wandering beyond its scope in that and other regards. The antifa bit in concern jumped out to me as particularly unnecessary - which is neither a defense nor an endorsement of them as a whole, but literally a question of "Why are they mentioned here?"

I'll inspect the article proper soon, but I figured since people were bringing up the topic, I may as well say my piece where it's appropriate and give what I plan to do some context. --LGX-000 (talk) 04:40, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

n.b. I don't know or give a single fuck about MLP
>why antifa was mentioned?
an excuse to kinda take the piss plus mention the Gretchin Revolutionary Committee (literally orky antifa), and stream-of-consciousness typing maybe with alcohol involved? totally not mlp related except for in my longwinded comparison to /pol/ in terms of simiilar memetic rise to popular consciousness Based Tzeentch (talk) 05:08, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

The stream of consciousness editing would explain a LOT of recent stuff, though it at least satisfies that particular curiousity. The GRC connection STILL seems tenuous at best, honestly, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it, like I said. --LGX-000 (talk)

Also, if I'm being entirely honest, and I say this in the caption of the pic related, I started editing this page because I went straight Khornate berserker (not really but you know what I mean, fanwanking, more like REALLY???? WTF) when I was looking for some Commissar Cain artwork and found him depicted as a pony (lol) and figured I'd vent by posting something silly-but-somewhat-appropriate-to-the-theme there but it wound up becoming much more longwinded because that's kinda my nature when writing, to flow a lot and then come back and pick at it basically. Not necessarily the best approach for a Wiki. I didn't intend it as vandalism or anything malicious per se at all but definitely derogatory towards Bronies and sometimes tangentially on-topic at best and definitely not favorable towards the literal subject matter of the article.
Really, the whole mess can be reverted for all I care at this point although I do like some of what I "contributed," some of the art and discussion of the fandom. But really, it can go if it's inappropriate or out of place. Based Tzeentch (talk) 06:20, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

I doubt I'll revert the WHOLE thing, if anything at all, but I'll have to sit down and block out some time to think my way through this procedure regardless. In any case, thank you for answering and being straightforward. --LGX-000 (talk) 06:43, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

I'll also go through it. Unless it is absolute shit (like every single fucking list here), I try to keep it as intact as possible, and I only replace jokes with jokes. Either way, this is what having a community of editors is for. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 14:48, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Stop knocking on an innocent show![edit]

Mlp actually is pretty good. Spamming the boards with mlp content was a bit inappropriate, but I don't think its fair to condemn it for that!

Yes it is, fuck off brony.

On a scale of 1 to 10 of trolling, I'd say .5. but that's only because of the snappy response. The odds are you binge-watch the show as a guilty pleasure. I know a few people that condemn it publicly, but enjoy it privately, might you be one?
