The ride's been slowing for years. What is there to keep it going?
The show? It's never been worse.
The fandom? Which insular circlejerking kefty echo chamber of a website rulled by petty admins and crybullying trannies will you find "The fandom" on? Our website's the only good one on the planet.
The friends we made along the way? All but two of the brony fans I made over the past few years have moved on to anime so hard, they look down on me for even bothering with the sad shitheap Hasbro turned FIM into. There are so many shows they're into that I just haven't got the time to watch, because I'm too busy writing.
Fan content? I don't see any unified movement to bring attention to good and underrated pony work out there, or any general where newbies can improve their skills and get feedback.
Just kidding, we have the latter. But what we need is our website's version of the former. We need something better than "Top 10 pony videos of the month", where if you aren't already popular enough to have blind fans, or willing to pour months into making an animation/song at least more than ten times better than the shitty PMV/Famous Bronytuber's shitpost 2 spots above you, there's no point in getting your hopes up about getting on the video. We need something better than Horse News, which is just "everything sux lol" 80% of the time. We need something better than Equestria Daily, which is as cucked and subverted as it gets.
Imagine… Uncucked Equestria Daily, a right-wing voice willing to call attention to truly great works of art, and call out the most obvious cases of lefty corruption.
