This "fandom" just went full retarded. I don't even know what to say anymore, other than that these spergs are taking this shit way too far. Funny that they only raised like 40 bucks, out of 600,000. It will clearly never reach completion, but if in the splinter chance that it does, I wanna see it firebombed by surprise in the middle of their sperg fest when the island is most populated.

The fact that they would even think this shit up in the first place, let alone go through the effort of trying to organize it on a fundraising site makes me heavily question the fandom's sanity, even more besides the gender and age gap from the intended target audience.

This isn't the first time someone has tried to swindle a group of man-children.

The fact that this has you so wound up makes me question your sanity.

Honestly, I think $600,000 could be better put elsewhere (like buying 1500 xboxes) but if they can raise the money (which they likely won't, I'm not sure if this is even serious), then I will get a big new map, find the island and say "hah".

Like I've said before I'd probably be super in to the show, but I've just never taken the time to watch it, like so many other things. I don't understand the hate.

Also did you just say "spergs"? Okay..

I've watched an episode on Youtube sometime back; it's just a generic American kids show that pushes standard moral lessons.

As a brony, I can say this does seem a bit silly. I don't see it being a campaign that many of us will actually back.

Your post is a tad aggressive, though, Soda. :/

I feel that I should specify that that this thread isn't serious, I don't actually mind that people watch the show, I just wanted to point out the absurdity of an island being constructed by overzealous fans around the show. :P

Hey, if they go through with it, we can always go to war with the island to "claim it back from imperialists", thus changing it to a name of our choice. I mean, that's totally working for Argentina, right? (I appreciate that what I've said is the very weakest of resemblances to the actual situation)

What a great idea, and on the island's highest point we could erect a 10 metre tall bronze statue of Daisy's head on a stick.

As a brony, can you explain why MLP has such an enormous following?

I know that it's a cute little show for children featuring animated equines of various descriptions, and I know that there's a fringe movement of grown men with issues who get some kind of sexual gratification from watching the show... but then what? What's the appeal for everyone in-between? Unlike, say, Hayao Miyazaki's work it's not something that people of all ages can get equal enjoyment out of, but maybe that's what I'm not getting.

As for this island thing, I hope it's successful so we can get a good Louis Theroux documentary about it and the whole MLP phenomena.

This world needs more silliness and less seriousness. I heartily approve of the (presumably joke) campaign.

To be honest, I have the impression that the My Little Pony fad is starting to end, remaining only a niche.

I don't think it was ever destined to be anything more than niche.

Fantastic characters. They're unbelievably good.

Which one did you watch? IMO the first two eps don't really represent what the show is about.

Haha yeah that would be funny.
As for this, I can't see anything wrong with watching the show, hey I still enjoy watching kids films as much as I like films such as Scarface. I just can't see myself enjoying this show, but maybe I'm just too much of a wuss to watch it in the first place.

This all reminds me, more than a bit, about the time Americans tried to raise enough money to build a statue of 'Robocop' in Chicago.

Goddamn, is this just sickening. It's one thing to watch a show that's neither in your gender or age range. It's another to try to build a real-life island and name it after a place in that show.

Oh, yeah, I also forgot this as well:

I really don't think there's anything more to it other than the fact that large groups of adolescent/older men - a group far outside the show's initial target demographic - can genuinely find the show entertaining.

I think it started on 4chan (as, y'know, everything on the internet does) with just a few posts and few guys claiming the show to actually be watchable and not just awful pre-teen girly gunk. It sort of ballooned from there as more and more men thinking "A girl's show that men can watch without throwing up? How utterly preposterous!" caved into their curiosity and gave it a go.

I think many bronies are in fact aware that genuinely liking a show for little girls is an absurd notion (at least by pretty much anyone's standards), but that's just part of the appeal. :P "Hee hee! I'm watching a girl's show without throwing up!"

No need for that - John DeLancie will explain everything for you when he releases his documentary. :P

At the gaming store I go to, a Brony meetup happens once every couple of Sundays. This occurs right when my group is playing D&D.

The first time they showed up, it was 20-25 people. Mostly males with 2 or so females.

They were two tables away from our D&D, and they were running Savage Worlds: Pony Edition.

Their leader looked like Richard Stallman, and was wearing an EFF t-shirt. Thanks to him, I now believe all software should be walled-garden and loaded with DRM.

He also had his laptop open, and little animated ponies were running around on the firefox page he was on. I was terrified.

But is it really any different from building statues of mythical creatures or naming mountains after gods?

4chan must die. It has a stupid, anime kiddy-like name.

Stop complaining about an anime-like name for a site where it's original purpose was to discuss anime.

*Against better judgement, opens thread*

...What the flying fuck did I just walk in on?!

PS - Indiegogo's policy is that even if a project doesn't reach completion, the project makers still get the funding they were pledged. Not that it really matters all that much.
