      What went wrong?

      I figured I'd post it here since I got confused to where else it might fit (seems like a debate anyways)

      So, troll jokes aside, what DO you guys think went wrong? Why did the forum lose its popularity when it used to be so HUGE?

      I'm curious on what you guys think!!

      Well, let's be honest, activity is expected to drop when the show is on break. People have work, school, and families to spend their time on. Also, the fandom itself is fading rather consistently. The remainder is made up of people who are just here to stay in touch with old friends, trolls, and a small remnant that actually want to talk about the show. Of course, I'm a mixture of them all, so I might be wrong.

      Pretty good points. Was this place more active back when season 5 was midway, for instance?

      Yeah, especially during the summer. It seems when there are current pony events to talk about, the active members pop back up. Most of the veterans seem to not care about the show anymore, which is fine, really. They're all still great people for the most part.

      •people moved on from the show
      •there are other forums to talk about ponies on that have a larger member base
      •long periods of the site being down (3 times)
      •people got btfo and probably committed sudoku because of magnificent trolling
      •site drama

      I've been here since the beginning and I'm glad the forum is still here- I'm pretty sure it's because I like the people here and I have pony autism so it's the best of both worlds.


      Time to make a masterpiece!

      What other pony forums are there? Apart from EquestriaForever and the (very brief and violent) life of ManeMedia, can't say I've heard of any other ones.

      And lol I've been here since almost the beginning, but I do remember the site when it first showed up, even the oldest mods, really miss those guys :c

      Just a quick search on Google brings up quite a few results. There are probably 4 popular ones including FiM, but we're declining on that list.

      What is keeping me from being more active is all the troll posts everywhere. Like seriously. Just look around. Everywhere. That isn't exactly a friendly atmosphere in my opinion.

      You can't just let the trolls win like that, Soru
