This thread is meant as a repository for the history of pone. If any anons would be willing to relate the historical nature of the many memes that have been spawned, the state of the fandom in general, whatever happened with /mlpol/ on 4chan and generally how we horsefuckers got to where we are now, please do so here.
The level of baseline knowledge to assume would generally be that the individual being educated has seen the G4 vanilla show in its entirety, from seasons 1-7, but has been largely if not completely cut off from the fandom until now.
If moving to /qa/ is necessary, please do let me know, as this thread was made for myself in mind, and I have a couple questions in mind; however I wanted to keep the OP short and sweet and open to any anon that would like to reminisce or educate themselves.

Cursory search about /mlpol/ history has brought up the following link.https://www.deviantart.com/chickun030/journal/The-complete-history-of-mlpol-Text-674811654
What I don't get is why lots of posters on /pol/ and /mlp/ seem to think this place doesn't exist. They talk fondly of the board on 4chan, saying that it was one of the best things to have happened to them both, but then just kind of sigh and go back to shitposting in other threads.
Lurking /mlp/ shows that they know well enough about ponerpics but not the site's creators or relation to this site. I haven't tried to mention anything about mlpol.net on there. Do you catch a ban if you try?
Another post really quickly so I can keep the clogging of /overboard/ to a minimum.
WTF does Andrew WK have anything to do with /mlp/? Does he or the band have an MLP obsession or something?
What does poni a poni mean?
Am I right in assuming that >belongs on /v/ has to do with the numerous Skyrim mods that came out with poner steeds?
Would IDW be a good starting point in reading up on comics related to the show, and then if interested move on to more fanfic-like stuff?
Saging to avoid a fourth self-bump today, but I realized there was a shameful lack of pone ITT.
The history of /mlpol/ is also the history of Football itself. To know Football is to know the very nature of all things. Get on your knees and pray to John Elway to bring understanding upon your mortal mind and he will guide you to the answers you seek.
John Elway 3:16
And Peyton Manning so loved the sport that he gave his only begotten Football that whosoever shall believe in Elway should not perish but have everlasting Football.
God bless Football and God bless American.
These are all that remains after 4/mlpol/ was first destroyed. There are further records, threads buried deep in the archives of /qa/, /po/, and others. Beyond that, what do you wish to know? There are plenty who have been here ever since.
Yea, for the Denver Broncos are Football, amen.
I didn't think to dig on 4plebs, thanks anon. Not much about /mlpol/ in particular thus far, save for the behavior I seem to notice in the parent boards as referenced in >>3406
. Do they just not know about the place, or are they content with letting tranny jannies and google farm all their data so they can be on a quicker board? /mlpol/ was kind of hard to find for yours truly, but then again I guess I wouldn't have known what to search for.
Well, there is one question I've got lingering. If this is something I find while lurking the archives, I'll answer it here myself. But I was wondering why Griffons? There's another race in FiM that impersonates ponies until it's no longer advantageous, wants nothing more than to bring about the destruction and enslavement of Equestria and its ethnostate denizens, and leeches off the friendship all the ponies have for one another. By contrast, the first griffon you see in FiM is pretty much just a dyke, and IIRC they're mostly just grouchy Eastern Mediterraneans as a whole.
Apparently something happens in season 9 that I don't know about with Queen Chrysalis, but afaik the original /mlpol/ happened before that. Is it just because people like their design?
That, and they're misers that don't lift a greasy claw without asking for bits first.
Personally, changelings are more comparable in form and scope to mass migrant populations, whereas Griffons tend to fit the meme of Jewish mentality.
Theres never going to be a perfect metaphor, so that's what I prescribe sticking with.
Now that you mention it, both of them (changelings and griffons) seem to have elements of both to them (migrants and (((them)))). No need to change consensus or what works, agreed.
Will the Rainbow Dash cum jar be explained here?
I don't have any authority to tell you no. Just put spoilers in case you post any pictures, please. I don't want to see that.
If memory serves, the images uploaded on the MLP page of Know Your Meme serves as a surprisingly decent summary of MLP history. It captures a lot of the general trends of the fandom over time.
Just start from the beginning and sort the images chonologically. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic/photos/sort/oldest/page/1?nsfw=true
I just popped in there, and it looks like they don't have a very good UI for it. At least it's there.
One person decided to do a weird and stupid thing. It turned into a meme.
For some reason, the women who smear their menstrual effluence over paintings and put it into food to feed to unsuspecting people under the guise of "female empowerment" didn't get any momentum for average people talking about the stories and being disgusted at their habits, but the literally just one person doing a weird thing in the section of the MLP fandom that goes out of it's way to think of weird things to do somehow gained prominence.
People literally treat the MLP fandom by different rules than they treat any other group of people. Individual actors doing weird stuff are seen as representative of the whole while actual representative actions by large organized groups of people like all the charity drives, are ignored. Meanwhile, the reverse is true for any other group, even when the other groups have a traceable and clear negative impact on society and the world around them.
So, to summarize: One weird guy did a weird thing this one time. That's about it.
>>3655>some people did some things
I looked it up and turns out one guy filled a jar with cum and a Rainbow Dash figure to see what would happen but he left it near a radiator, caramalizing the natural sugars in the jar.
But it's really just one guy who did something weird once. I expected it to be something a bunch of people did. There are entire fucking communities on the internet where Blue Avatar and Scifi and Pokemon LOTR and Anime fans talk about how much they hate humanity and how much they wish they were aliens on alien worlds and how much they wish they could "Isekai" and this was before "reality shifting" groups on facebook and tiktok and amino took off. You know, groups of adults and kids who try to lucid dream about being in Harry Potter Land or My Hero Academia or Gravity Falls while bullshitting themselves about parallel universes. Nigger the only parallel universe travellers I respect are the ones with aligned Quarter Parallel Universes.
Also since we're on the subject of quantum physics and >>3655
has a picture related, please enjoy some ponified OC that I've been sitting on.
