My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic » The 5 steps of Brony Development

My stages were more like; confusion (is this a joke or something?) --> curiosity (come at me youtube) --> astonishment (holy crap, these characters are great!) --> acceptance (hang on, is that "Q" from Star Trek? ...THIS IS AWESOME!).

I've moved Weekly Ponies to Tuesday (they've been going up on Tuesdays so far anyway) because I believe that's the day episodes go up on iTunes, and until they hit iTunes I don't have a "clean" source for screen caps.

Also pinned the thread to all boards so users won't miss it.

Added Daring-Do. I don't think her voice actress has been confirmed though.

Editing & Tools » Character's Friend and Enemy Pages' Appearance - Useful or Not?

These sub-pages in the wiki are hidden away and most people don't really know they're there. That doesn't mean we should get rid of any of that stuff though. If anything I think the "edit" link on the friends/enemies section should be removed so you would have to go to the sub-page to add or remove characters.

Anyway, from what I've heard the engineers are doing a lot of work on the wiki so we should be seeing some changes soon. I'd wait and see what happens.

Bug Reporting » About the "Coming up on Anime Vice" Header....

@DocHaus said:

On that note, there is the header "Your hang out for anime and manga news, reviews, and forums. Right now we're really into Fullmetal Alchemist." Is that ever going to be changed to something more recent?

Yeah that should be changed to Persona 4 or something.

General Discussion » Persona 4 animation

@Novai: As far as I know it's US-only so if you want a legal stream you're kind of stuck. Links to all the current anime simulcasts, including Persona 4, can be found here.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic » Do you watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic?

@AHR: Completely agree! And I've always loved your pony pic.

You say all this though yet you haven't commented on the latest article. For shame Ana!

Saying that and haven't either. You all suck.

On top of that, even if someone in the community made something that was quality and along those lines, we're not allowed to spotlight it outside of a once a week community round up post.

That's not true, we also have the community section on the homepage for that stuff too. We just have to tell Perry to put stuff there, that's all.

Let's see what you could do..Instead of episodic blogging about Nisemonogatari one could for example study and explain all the in-jokes and references to Japanese media and products that's hidden in there. You could also do that with Bakemonogatari or Zetsubou Sensei if you so wished.

That's a little much to ask, especially when most people just want to read about/talk about the actual episode. If you want to talk about that stuff though, by all means do so it the comments. I'm sure some people would find that interesting. Remember, these articles are there so people can talk about the show, not just read about it.

One could compile all the shows airing and make a list on who's subbing them and thereafter rate them so you know where and who to get your subs from.

We have a list of legal streams here. We don't promote fansubs on this site though, so that's a no-go. We do our best to support the anime industry.

Off-Topic » Review an anime/manga in 5 words (Game thread)

Totally stealing this idea from Sweep on Giant Bomb, check out his thread here.

Review/sum up any anime or manga series in just five words, for example:

Bleach

Dragon Ball but with swords.

Highschool of the Dead

Zombies, panties and bouncing boobies.

Clannad

Touching classic you should watch.

Your turn.

@Cloudenvy: Okay, now how about you tell us something useful. What exactly do you want to see?

Keep in mind though that we have to send our articles through staff as we can't post them ourselves. That makes posting "breaking news" articles kind of hard, that's a big part of why we've been doing weekly anime articles.

Added a reminder to always check the wiki guide before editing pages.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic » Ongoing Wiki Project: Friendship is Magic

@ScarletKittie: Yeah I was thinking about this earlier. I think it would be best to only include characters with spoken lines in the character section and then add a section called "Background Characters" in the episode pages and list all the characters who made an appearance, even if it was the mane cast. I think that's the best way to handle it.

Set it up like this (making all this stuff up for the example):

Background Characters

  • Derpy was briefly shown behind Rainbow Dash juggling in this episode.
  • Doctor Whooves was seen buying carrots in this episode.
  • Twilight Sparkle, Scootaloo, Smarty Pants and Snips were briefly shown in the background in this episode.

@ScarletKittie: Yeah absolutely, there are plenty of locations to add; Appleloosa, Dodge Junction and so on. I think as long as it's been featured in an episode it deserves a page. We can add pages for the Library/Twilight's house, Fluttershy's house, the Cake's shop (I forget the name) and any other places like that too.

Edit: Added Spitfire.
