Ya the down votes are going to be....
@S1rTorture, your upvotes are gonna be...
I always feel bad for Kaiser Wilhelm. S/he posts for fellow fans, but it gets overshadowed by the debates.
@SimonPetrikov, he and I don't care just as long as they get posted
@Kaiser Wilhelm II, Good man. Woman. Whichever.
@Sparks 1911, MAN
@Kaiser Wilhelm II, Funny, cause I remember you running from your duties as Kaiser like a bitch. *high-fives a million Germans* (seriously though keep uploading, I didn't like this one but I like most of your uploads)
@Kaiser Wilhelm II, Still not cool
I feel like the reason a lot of people don't like bronies is because they almost seem... pedophielic(?) in nature... Grown men with such a strong passion towards something marketed explicitly towards little girls seems kinda wrong somehow... The other reason I think is because a lot of them seem kinda annoying. Like a lot of the proclaimed "bronies" I've met seem to be less interested in the show itself and more interested in the attention they get when they say "Yeah, I love watching a show made for little girls"
@Ultra Fat Whale, we need to make that into a stamp so we can stamp this on every stupid brony argument that comes up on here and just be done with it
@Ultra Fat Whale, I just find it a little hypocritical. You can be a woman and love TMNT (marketed directly towards little boys) and no one will think you're a pedophile. And it has nothing to do with nostalgia either because you can also love adventure time and gravity falls which are also kids shows and not get any hate. As for the annoying thing - welcome to the internet. Most fandoms are annoying to people that arent in them or dislike them. And in all honesty it is kinda funny to hear people get so upset over dudes liking some show, but Ive never met a single brony that only like the show just to say that.
@Ultra Fat Whale, If you look at creator Lauren Faust's interviews, she designs the show to be appreciated by a wide audience, not just little girls. This is the same person who did a lot of work on Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Home, and Dexter's Labratory.
@Ultra Fat Whale, My comment was only to try to convey the perception of bronies from the POV of someone who knows nothing about the show (myself included in that category). But I think to many it seems less akin to a group of adults watching adventure time or gravity falls or something and more akin to a group of adults sitting down to seriously watch/debate a show like Dora the Explorer, a program similarly (and correctly in this case) perceived to be for small children. I have no idea who the creator actually intends the show to be for but you will have a hard time convincing people that a show about magical cartoon ponies isn't made for very young girls.
@Ultra Fat Whale, I understand that, but it still basically just boils down to someone judging someone else (and often judging them as a pedophile no less) for their preconceived ideas on a show they (often) know little to nothing about outside of the 80s-90s cartoons that aren't particularly relavent to the debate.
@NightCrest, one of my biggest problems is the term brony. Really? You created a word for guys that watch mlp? Oh and the clop thing /)
@FightingIntheWarRoom, bronies are far from the first fandom to invent a name for themselves. Shall I direct you to the whoovians? Hell, tvtropes has an entire page listing fandom names (Fan Community Nicknames). And even most bronies hate clop. Cloppers are to bronies what bronies are to anti-bronies.
@Ultra Fat Whale, (Love the user name.) I disagree. As a brony, there's a lot to like, but that's the same with other shows. I don't watch much TV, but I'm pretty sure that some people like shows for reasons other than their target audiences. As far as I know, there are plenty of non attention fishing bronies AND pegasistas out there. Grown men enjoying a show for kids isn't a crime, and there's no pedophilia involved. No one's accused of being a pedophile for liking adventure time, regular show, Steven universe, etc. I get it if you don't like MLP or even bronies, but why hate?
@NightCrest, well now we need a name for asventure time fans
@derp day, timely adventurers?
@NightCrest, doesn't mean i support the names. I have a good one for a fandom: i watch such and such tv show and don't need a stupid, corny title.
@FightingIntheWarRoom, you dont have to like it. I'm just saying if you're gonna dislike bronies for that, you also have to dislike trekkies, whoovians, browncoats, and basically every single fandom ever.
*Gets in emergency down vote shelter*
So here's that obligatory brony speech that you see on every pony picture. As a person who watches the show, but doesn't really care about it too much, I sort of get why people can be annoyed. Also, the pony pictures posted on here aren't very funny. Brony or not, they're pretty much ultimate boner-killers. So... yeah. Don't be stupid, promote boners.
@Pextel, That's one way to put that and I agree the pictures aren't that great even if watch the show or not, and yes I am a brony.
@Pextel, don't you mean broners?
@Pextel, yeah but even if they are not that funny I don't see why people always down vote them while on most flops people move on.
The worst part about this pic is that it isn't even funny. There is no real joke in it unless the horse is having a tantrum, as I would expect from what my friend tells me about it
Ahhh how I love the community, stuckpixel, and all of the comments.
OH BOY HERE WE GO
22 August 2014 #22August2014
Stuck pixel should take a hint from the rating on pony pictures and stop doing it
@Furry Cheese Farts, Mods upload and approve pics they think are funny. We try to be the least biased when it comes to different perspectives and topics, especially since our diverse community enjoys different types of humor.
@Furry Cheese Farts, Cause up/down votes definitely matter...
@Sparks 1911, yes. What do you think they're for?
@StuckPixel, well, I think a consensus should matter, I mean, since it doesn't, what's the point of pic ratings?
@Metzger, there are several thousand people on this app if those census polls are any indication. There's never even 100 votes on most pictures total. It's far from a consensus.
@Sparks 1911, They didn't even matter when Al Gore won the popular vote for presidency over Bush. You still think they mean anything?? (*mischievous grin* braces for things to be thrown and political debate).
@Sparks 1911, they do to a certain extent
@NightCrest, plenty of pictures surpass the 100 votes mark. Are you new here?!
@Metzger, the second most popular pic right now has 65 votes. Yeah some pass that mark sometime, but not *that* often. And even if they hit the 300 mark that's still far, far from consensus.
@Furry Cheese Farts, Or maybe they're amused by our reactions and that's why they post them.
@NightCrest, I like how you selectively skipped over the first one with 153 votes, lol, WHATEVER. I wasn't talking about upvotes, I was talking about downvotes on a picture to get it removed, & quite a few pictures, LIKE I SAID, go well over 100 in downvotes. Think things through before you try to make a point, thanks.
@Metzger, you think things through. Do you even know what a consensus is? That's 100% of people. Even the top most popular comment doesnt break 200 votes. With 2000+ people on here, that's not even 10%. Yeah, clearly the anti-bronies are way more vocal and care more than bronies do to up/downvote, but 90 fvcking % of the userbase doesnt fvcking care.
@NightCrest, apparently YOU f*cking care, or you wouldn't have commented on the same subject I did...
@Metzger, I have 8 pony pics bookmarked, including the first ever. Of those only 2 have more than 100 downvotes and NONE break 200 total votes. Not a consensus.
@StuckPixel, did you just copy and paste that message from the last time you said it?
@Metzger, I do care that you seem to think every single person on here hates a fandom I and many other users consider themselves a part of, yes.
@NightCrest, COMPLETE BS! I just went through the mlp tags & counted OVER 10 that had OVER 100 votes, and actually found one that went OVER 200 votes. Get out of here with your false information, that's the second time you've provided it. & I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT "FANDOMS" I never said anything about hating or liking them, I'm neutral on the subject, so DON'T put words in my mouth, thanks. Also, I asked StuckPixel a question in the first place, NOT YOU
@StuckPixel, how come Tyler643 still
@StuckPixel, how come Tyler643 still gets Adds even after going Pro? Can you fix it? Well can you?
@Metzger, don't let people bait you into an argument. Nobody looks good coming out of those
@Metzger, I said my sample size was 8. 8 that I bookmarked because I commented on them. I admit, I looked through the tagged posts and you're right, plenty pass 100, and a handful break 200 total votes. That said, that's still not close to a consensus which was the foundation of your question. I also didnt say you hated bronies, but that sure seems to be the primary reason given for downvoting these pics (which is the thing we're talking about). Also, stuckpixel already answered your question above. The mods pick the content, not you. No need to get all ragey.
@StuckPixel, I like pictures of cats wearing people clothes ( except cat sized) can more of those be uploaded please?
@NightCrest, there you go again, I never downrated this picture, quit saying things about me like you know what you're talking about. & StuckPixel did NOT answer my question, so read it again... Were you dropped on your head as a child or something?
@Furry Cheese Farts, I love how everyone who replied to your comment seemed to completely ignore StuckPixel's. No matter how much anyone b*tches about a particular fandom, they're obviously not going to stop providing for them. Even if there is a small number of them, they're still part of this brilliant community. And no, I'm no Brony, I'm just sick of seeing everyone complaining SO much about something that won't change. Don't like MLP pics? Skip over them. Easy. Sorry about the rant, not directing it solely at you.
@18bluecat, very true, but I was on a debate team for years, so I can't help myself sometimes, haha, thanks for the support though, I'm going to try to leave those replies alone now :)
@Metzger, "I was talking about downvotes on a picture to get it removed" -You. Stuckpixel clearly already said their mods make the content, so that's answered. Wont happen. My "you" in my last reply was more directed at the collective "you" referring to the reader, not specifically you. You (actual you) are saying content should be removed that has been downvoted a lot. Pony pics often have comments with lots of people disliking bronies and calling us pedophiles. It can be presumed a lot of those people are contributing to downvotes, ergo, you are suggesting content should be removed that some people (as I said already, not even a majority) dislike. I'm thinking you weren't hugged enough as a child. Lots of anger.
@Metzger, not trying to bait you into an argument. I'm trying to have a discussion, preferably civil because I also like to debate. You're the one that started throwing the insults and caps shouting .
@CrustyMcballs, Haha! Sounds like it, right? This employee did not copy and paste, but we try to keep our answers consistent for similar questions.
@StuckPixel, ok. That makes sense. Thank you for your answer.
@NightCrest, blarg that . at the end was supposed to be one of those scruncy faces but I guess this app doesnt process those angled brackets.
@Xig, We're not sure why, but perhaps that user can email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with more details? The Pro icon has a gold background and should not have any ads. We can help "fix" the issue if we know that user's specific circumstance.
@I Punt Pugs, Try submitting some of your own that you think are funny! Don't forget to add a good title and description.
@StuckPixel, could you perhaps answer my question... I asked it earlier, & as you can see, it opened a large can of worms
@Furry Cheese Farts, but......ok I'll leave then
@Metzger, Ratings are a feature to provide some feedback, but ultimately, the mods are the deciding factors.
@StuckPixel, wow responding to criticism I like it.
@Metzger, I just have to say I love reading all of your arguments on this app haha
@Gooby, Danke sehr viel :D, I don't try to seem pissed off or offended about any topic in particular, because I never am, I'm just trying to prove myself & sometimes it takes ALOT longer than I care for it to, like in this instance, haha. Also, if ever I get snippy with you about something, then just prove me wrong, because that's what I want, & then I'll shut up, I promise :-P
@StuckPixel, I think you are in the right if even 26 people up vote there will be others that like but don't upvote (I'm a part of that group) then that is enough people to warrant uploading these. Go Stuckpixel!
The down votes are over 9000!
I really don't get the hate. I feel like there are a lot of other pictures people don't like, but if there's even one pony in a pic, stop the presses and downvote because I'm insecure and can't let others enjoy what they like. But hey, if you have to act your shoe size, don't let me stop you.
Me when ever some one assumes all bronies are no-life, fadora wearing, pervs.
That's hot....I have a problem.
I've never seen so many down votes on a pic...
And I thought our community was polite, tolerant of opinions, mature, and funny. Apparently not. Our community has gone down the drain for the past 3 years I've been on here. Now we rage and bash people who like different shows than us. The community is gone. Down the drain. R.I.P Funny Pics.
@Corycogo5737, Quick reannouncement, the funny pics community is not gone. Just a lot of the people here have the maturity of a five year old. Sorry to the many of the users who keep the community alive
@Corycogo5737, I do have to agree to an extent. I got downvoted for saying I don't like Adventure Time. I wasn't insulting anyone or the show, just stating my opinion.
@La Villa Strangiato, i bet you think doctor who is stupid too you freaking douche.
Downvoting just cuz ponies is wrong. I like dbz and ponies
Like every time, I have to upvote a pic I'm indifferent about to help the b
I NEVER FREAKING CLICKED POST STUCKPIXEL
@Corycogo5737, *I have to upvote a pic I'm indifferent about to help all the bronies out there.
Funny how I decide to take a break from this app because I was too addicted to it. It's been almost a year and now it fvcking sucks balls. Now I just want to take it off because it takes like 10 pages to actually find something funny. I'm out, let me know when you get your shjt together StuckPixel.
@911IsaConspiracy, Try submitting pics you think are funnier!
@StuckPixel, good comeback, you witty group of merry little programmers, you.
