Single Status Update
I just want to know the specific reason my fanfiction "Ponies Playing Doom" was put into post-hell, when it obviously was an actual (albeit, purposely ridiculous, entirely satirical,) ongoing story.
Yes, it involves characters from the show MLP: FiM. A number of people seem to think all bronies are annoying and childish. Granted, there are some very annoying and stupid bronies out there.
But as fellow Doomers, aren't there members of our own community we wish would stop ruining our reputation? I.e, relentless trolls who upload childish Terry-crap, and end up taking time and attention away from potential new mappers, or stupid spammers who post things just to be rude or idiotic?
I'm not angry that my fanfiction has been Post-Helled, but I am sad. Sad that something I've actually put real work and effort into (yes, believe it or not, I've taken time to create a funny story, and was going to continue it every few days, even going as far as having characters logging onto Doomworld themselves and wondering why there are so many fish.)
But for whatever reason, it's been sent to Post-Hell. Most likely due to an attempt to get rid of "Pony" related pages.
Sure, some (okay, a lot of) posts deserve Post-Hell, but certainly my story wasn't one of them, right?
Don't get me wrong. I'm not angry at this site. I love Doomworld and its community. I love being able to contribute my thoughts and creations to fellow doomers, and share opinions. And NOTHING will ever change that. I am, and always will be, a supporter of this website, its moderators, and the community behind it.
But here's another fact: a certain number of doomers (including myself) are bronies, too. Nothing will change that.
Getting rid of any material having even the slightest to do with an outside interest (even when the said post has enough to do about Doom to be posted on Doomworld) is not the answer. This is just my opinion on the matter. Hold your own opinions whichever way you want.
Despite my ranting, I can't end without a personal thank you to the Doomworld community, and to the people who maintain this site. You guys are awesome! Even as a complete newb with very little experience, I have had such nice response from people all across the board. Whether they be senior-members or green-marines just as myself, people here have been so kind. Thank you, very much. It means a lot more to me than you may think.
As always, I will continue posting Doom-related stuff and contributing my best work to this site. Thanks again for all of the welcome I've received, and may your Dooming adventures never end,
p.s. seriously, "that's a lot of fish!" (N.C. Reference.)

Sorry to bring you into this, Jimmy. I tend to get caught up in my own ranting and forget to think about what I'm saying (or writing) before I say it.
By the way, I was never really mad at the Doomworld community at large. Jonathan's comment got me a little peeved, but everyone else has been thus fine with their responses, in my opinion.
Just one last note. For those who have had bad experiences with bronies, I apologize sincerely and with humility, and wish you only the best in life. I would never want anyone to be harassed or insulted for liking or not liking something. I assure you, my only intentions with this posts were to get my personal thoughts out on the issue, and if I have offended anyone, I apologize.
I should also be updating my Psx Doom Pistol-Starting series every few days of this week.
