NEW TEA TIME TODAY
As the banner at the top of the page says, we are doing another tea time today. In the past, these have usually been
long-winded paranoid rants
informative lectures from Atlas; however, since Atlas has gone to live on a nice farm in the country and none of the rest of us have anything terribly interesting to lecture you all about, we've decided to make this one an informal Q&A session where you can ask us all questions about the site, or about anything else that's on your mind. This is sort of a test-drive to see how things go; we are hoping to get these started up on a semi-regular basis again, and hopefully will have some slightly more interesting content for you next time.
Like the vast majority of our events, this one is poorly coordinated and will probably be a shitshow. However, if you are the kind of person who likes staring at train wrecks, feel free to join us at about 1:00 PST (roughly one hour from the timestamp of this post).
As in the past, we will be conducting the session via Discord. You can join the Discord server via the link below.https://discord.gg/u7xQf2bFuj
If you do not want to use Discord, you can listen in via a stream on JoshWhoTV which is currently being set up by our good friend Stix. Stix will post the details once he gets it figured out.
Sorry for the delay. I have the stream set up here:https://www.joshwhotv.com/live/0/_60b2c0f161b04/1
I will be playing Caves of Qud in the background, a sort of pixel art roguelike with heavy exploration. Join and feel free to ask questions and have fun. Staff will be there too.
Feels like it's going to be a fun time!
Okay might be late to this due to irl task that popped up
No problem. We will keep things going as long as we can throughout the day. Take care and see you later.
All's good and just verifying it is me
Is your character using a pony sprite? Looks fun
Yes. I just swapped a sprite and some text from another mod from the steam workshop, the playable Snapjaw mod. I am still working on making it more unique, but for now, the sprite and some text about having a unicorn horn and legs instead of hands helps emersion.
Thanks! It's a good time. 11/10
Now we just need to figure out how often we are going to do it.
Once a week sounds like an idea, but every other or even once a month.
It was nice hearing everyone. Everything just sort of clicked for me of my understanding.
As the first impromptu TeaTime revival I think it was a success. Even if all that happened is shitposting and talking about stuff. I think that's kinda the point.
By it's self would help set up an entry for direct personalization
On one hand setting up the times. On the other hand having it at different times could attract different users...
Those trips say anytime you want.

Suddenly and in business time.
It ended about four hours ago more or less, sorry that you missed this one friend.
You can join the movie thread or even the anime /1ntr/ thread for live interaction, there is a high chance for some fore warning or live input about suggestions. (Also this thread too I suppose.)
I have no words, only horse noises.
Recording will be made available after I have trimmed out all the dead air and and cleaned up the recording (hopefully by tomorrow).
It was actually pretty comfy despite the fact that nothing serious was discussed and basically nothing was accomplished. We're thinking we will try and get back to doing these regularly, maybe aim for once a month. We'll try and announce it earlier next time so everyone can make arrangements.
stop breaking the sabbath you absolute homosapian
Pic in OP is making me have weird feelings about Glimglam. Is this normal?
Also I hope I can attend next time.
Don't entertain these thoughts, and they'll go away. On the other hand, if you keep thinking about them, they will keep coming to mind. Your brain will continue to present whatever will cause a reaction from you. Don't overthink it. Just let it pass.
>>310806>>310810>Don't entertain these thoughts
Yeah! They're supposed to entertain you.
But more seriously understand it's the nature of goodness within ponykind. Of all virtues can be found. Keeping in mind they too have flaws at times yet strive to be more virtuous.
They too can be found within yourself. Those virtues and ponies.
If you do entertain them they have a tendency along with politics to remove 99.9% of shills and redditors.>>310810
Keep in mind you can also change how you react by how much emotion is put into such points of imagination. In what way of wholesomeness or lewdness.
That's for you to decide however that has far reaching consequences.
Keeping in mind total obsession is usually bad. As is extreme apathy.
Both are very useful tools for any task especially knowing how to put them away and wielding them. Your mind is your garden tend to it with care and love and expansiveness of thought and wisdom to understand.
Know the fruits that are cultivated and what they attract or repel or meld with.
Also smiling with and at wholesome beauty tends to do the body and mind amd soul good.
So does laughter.
True, you do have a good deal of control over your ultimate behaviors, but that's a bit downstream of the initial contact with the information coming into your mind.
I'm just an anti-porn guy. I absolutely love ponies, love free speech, love this site, but I don't like porn. For that matter, just to be clear, as I suppose I wasn't in my previous post, I don't have anything against Glimglam. I just don't think porn is a benefit to you. Obsession isn't either, as you've mentioned. So, I thought I'd try to help the other anon understand what to do about it, if he was so inclined to change course.
No worries, I understand.
For all of you who missed it, here is a recording with most/some of the dead air in the beginning trimmed out. The real teatime action starts around the 13 minute mark.
Hope you all enjoy.
I finished the Tea Time.
I'm impressed by your literary ideas. You gave me a totally different perspective about the writefags.
Thanks for the upload.
So we're supposed to have a kind of "mini teatime" or something today. Anyways, join us
Discord invite, sorry we forgot to post it. Come join us!https://discord.gg/rwKPBWj7
Maybe another time. I don't feel like it today. I guess I'm shy.
>>311865>Joshwhotv>A casual meet and greet while we plan global pony domination over someone struggling to play Caves of Qud.
It sounds awesome but it's offline. Damn.>>311867>Discord
Not for me, I'm sorry.
I will post recording once it is encoded and cleaned a bit.
I'm looking forward to it. Thanks.
In two weeks we will hopefully be doing a more organized, semi-professional teatime. We were hoping to do something like a politics/current events segment where we look at articles and topics suggested by users, so if anyone has anything they'd like to see discussed next teatime feel free to post it in this thread.
Recording of todays teatime
Many bucks were broken that day.
going to listen to this tonight, thanks.
I finished the teatime, it's refreshing to listen to human voices talking about Equestria.
I agree, season 9 is horrible.
On the other hoof, political discussion is perhaps not advised outside an imageboard.
Thanks poners and until the next tea.
Yes. Though it is not going to be much, I will still be playing Caves of Qud and open to discussions, so feel free to leave suggestions here, on stream, or in the discord.https://www.joshwhotv.com/live/0/_60b2c0f161b04/1
Cool. Will put it on in the background.
uploading oc from during today's tea tasting. it should make more sense once the audio is posted
Yeah there was a lot of glimmerposting. Not something I condone.
>>313769>pic 3>What if your waifu made a cumjar of a figurine of you?
If they're going to make one might as well make sure it'll stand the test of time. Consider future civilizations finding the immortal cumjar as the basis for ancient pony civilization.
They'll show it in museums in textbooks on the internet. Once one immortal cum jar is made, another has to happen to top that.
Right now it'd be a conversation piece the talk of the town. The little bit of mystery special sauce used on rare occasions.
By the time anypony finds out what it really is they'll be too used to the flavor and will overlook the jar sauce.
Offbrand, Anon-jars will be stocked in super markets for the little extra something.
Somewhere a pony will have an Anon-CumJar cutie mark.
Cum jar project man could be anyone of us! He could be you. He could be me! He could even be-ka-pow>"Whoa whoa!"<"It was obvious watch he'll turn any second now."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AngKMxkAEK8
Checked and I'm both disgusted and intrigued.
