Sup, Carlos the spig here. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who's helped me with my fap-fic. From GG's highly technical analysis. (I've html'd the thread just because it's always a huge help whenever I'm in doubt.) To that Anon who suggested I make the story its own separate thing, rather than continue writing it as a fanfic.
I've basically taken everything into consideration and have made several changes accordingly during the full rewrite. Not because I felt like I had to, but because it made perfect sense. And with the privilege of hindsight, I genuinely felt like those changes were the better choice. With this, I'm taking Sven's lesson to heart, the one where he insisted he didn't wanted to replace my vision with his own.
That said, after pondering for the last two weeks. I've decided I won't be posting the story here.
I'm friends with several drawfags irl. And back then, we were willing to take the risk of posting the story hier because /mlpol/ was just badass. Right now tho, as much as it pains me to say it. This place is but a husk of what it used to be. And I'm a shit writer, but they do have talent and it would just be unfair from my part. Luckily, I didn't reveal much details from the story, so this is a perfect time to stop.
>Inb4: You just succ and can't write to save ur life.
Yes, basically. But at least I don't bother the whole site about it for years on end. Nor do I try to guilt-trip you with my super sad back story. Which isn't smart btw, even niggers do it.
Not particularly thrilled about any other thread here either. But it's not just this site. The pol-sphere in general have chosen the hug-box. They'll attack certain ideas not because of their merit, but because it's kinda depressing 4 them and they rather not think about it at all. (Sounds like what certain poster would say, but I can actually back this up lol).
Posting in /sp/ because it's at least more respectful than dumping this turd in the writing thread. For the Anons of that thread. I really don't deserve your time. But neither does this shithole honestly.
Bye, Carlos. Fwiw, your English has gotten better.
>>21722>For the Anons of that thread. I really don't deserve your time.
I'd argue that's the whole point of the write thread. It's not about just being the best it's finding where improvement needs to occur and trying solutions.
Responding to feedback.
Surprise surprise most people are not great at writing.
I want to be selfish and say please don't go.
You don't need to leave.>Only enjoy two threads
That's okay. Please stay.>A happening that /pol/-sphere is a hug box
Please make a thread that sounds interesting.<I must go now, my people need me.
It's been a genuine pleasure having you here, please reconsider.
I want you to have the best in all future and present endeavors.
So, see ya later. You're always welcome back friend.
>For the Anons of that thread. I really don't deserve your time. But neither does this shithole.
Agreed. The more of the userbase sees the site for what it is, the sooner this place can be repurposed into (((his))) Google Drive. It's the only utility the site has left aside from a tabletop campaign hub.
Sven here. Sad to hear that ur gonna leave. I hope u return. I really like u and consider u a friend. ^^
I think that's all there really is to say: I like you and I wish that you wouldn't leave but you do what feels best for u.
Best of wishes fren and one last hug from the hugbox before u leave for the hurtbox. ^^ Ur always welcomed back.No idea what the mare says, btw.
I have you guys to thank for that. Cool tune btw.>>21726
Tbh, I just wanted to say why I hadn't posted the draft. I'm not a prominent poster like you or GG, so I didn't thought it was worth announcing my leave. But since brainmetall was kind of the only thing I ever participated with. It's probably better to leave before the bulk of my posts turn into a stream of rants and complains. If I have to be honest, it has been like that for a while.
Thanks Svenoid. I too like to consider you a fren. Wish the best for you bud. (Same thing for you, GG.)>>21724>I'd argue that's the whole point of the write thread
Maybe, but that doesn't mean it's worth putting up with me (or someone else).>Please make a thread that sounds interesting.
I've already said everything I wanted to say before. Perhaps more than I should've. Nothing good seem to came out of it.>I want you to have the best in all future and present endeavors
Thanks anon, I wish you guys the best too. No matter what may have happened before. I'll lend you a hand if I'm ever in a position where I can do so.>>21725
At this point, I only hope it can be somewhat useful for somebody with good intentions. Whomever that may be.
Anyway, see you on the other side, poners.
>>21727>putting up with me
You haven't been that bad. I lurk the threads, and I enjoy them.
I guess it's up to you if you want to stay or go, but I think you're being a bit overdramatic. It's not like this site has user accounts or personal identities; there's no law saying you couldn't just lurk and make the occasional post here and there, while still pulling back a bit and focusing your main attention elsewhere. But, I can see where you're coming from. If you feel you have to leave, I respect your decision, and we all appreciate the time you've chosen to spend with us.
Best of luck to you with Rainmetall, I'm glad I was able to help out with it.>For the Anons of that thread. I really don't deserve your time. But neither does this shithole honestly.
As to whether or not this place truly deserves as much of my time as I've given it I couldn't say, but I don't feel like it's been wasted. I wouldn't have gotten into the pony stuff at all if it hadn't been for this place, and while I've since ventured into some other pony enclaves, /mlpol/ will probably remain my home base until it finally goes belly-up for good. Plus, when I post my original writing here it actually gets read. I've tried to make incursions into 4chan's /fimfic/ thread a few times and I mostly get ignored.

About that...let's just say I rarely show my flag. You probably wouldn't respond so kindly if I hadn't concealed my posts. (Or maybe you do know, given your position as staff member. I'll never know.)
All things considered, the pol-sphere has moved on and so have I. It's clear to me now that I don't belong here, tho I like to think it wasn't always like that. Our objectives remain largely the same, but everything else is incompatible.>but I think you're being a bit overdramatic.
N-No u!>but I don't feel like it's been wasted.
Just to be clear, I don't regret my time here at all. I learned a ton from all of you. Things are simply different around here and other image boards as of late. Tbh, the only thing that's kinda sad for me, is that I didn't get to share the progress I've made.>Best of luck to you with Rainmetall, I'm glad I was able to help out with it.
Thanks anon, hopefully you can see it incarnated somewhere in a couple years.>I've tried to make incursions into 4chan's /fimfic/ thread a few times and I mostly get ignored.
If your story revolves around, or frequently features an specific character. You could try posting in the "x" character general in /mlp/. If they like it, they'll probably shill the story elsewhere and attract more readers.
As a sidenote, even tho /shadowbolts/ general is almost a dead thread, I was still able to garner quite a handful of reads with the first chapter.
There's also nhnb if you don't barbiefag.
Anyway, I wish you luck in everything you set out to do. I really enjoyed the movie nights you fags organised. Thank you for that too.
