1. This is weird, but Fimfiction doesn't seem to have Past Sins. Of all the places on the webz, I figured FimFiction would have it

                    Thursday, 17-May-12 06:15:58 UTC from web
                    1. @lyokotravels I don't use Twitter other then to poke and laugh with Tinker

                      Thursday, 17-May-12 06:16:25 UTC from web
                      1. @mrdragon I noticed.

                        Thursday, 17-May-12 06:16:49 UTC from web
              2. @mrdragon I'm confused on that, because it seems to get bigger and more known but peeps keep saying it is dying. Is there any specific inarguable evidence in either way, or is it a divided set of stances relying on differing perspectives?

                Thursday, 17-May-12 06:13:05 UTC from web
                1. @crusader8 It's not dying, it's changing, it's gone from loveandtolerate to just play power hungry idiots. Bronycon is the best example, and then EQD has lost it's head on power as well. Kicking once loyal people to the dirt as if they were junk. Get out there and see the dirty end of the Fandom, it's growing quicker then the fandom is itself

                  Thursday, 17-May-12 06:14:24 UTC from web
                  1. @mrdragon It's because of the growth. Those who have power now feel they're not one of the elders of the village, but the rulers of an empire. It's what happens when you let someone who's not a natural leader grab power, and has a onstant influx of idiots that listen to him. As soon as the fandom became big enough to move considerable money, this was bound to happen. It's only a matter of avoiding the filthy spots though.

                    Thursday, 17-May-12 06:20:55 UTC from web
                    1. @nerthos Tell me about it. I prefer the 'neurotic, but nurturing, Jewish mother' role in my interactions with the fandom lately. Watching a lot of egos run out of control. Not that I can't be an arrogant jerk myself, but I always saw myself primarily as a servant to the community. Let's just say that my first three BronyCons were *NOT* fun experiences. At all.

                      Thursday, 17-May-12 06:29:50 UTC from web
                      1. @purpletinker I have never talked to you enough, or meddled with any important issues of the fandom to really know what's going on in the higher circles, but I can gather from knowledge on politics and psychology that it's not nice; the usual plotting and schemes of deception and betrayal to grab power even if just for a little while. I'm arrogant and with an ego the size of the sun myself, yet I completely lack interest in getting involved in such things; so I can see how someone with a big ego would act in a position like that. As far as I know, you're not a saint, but by any means you're what some try to make others believe. You're a normal woman trying to do something for a community, with a fair amount of bad luck that came from not cutting some heads in the right moment. But yeah, as long as there's profit and the sense of power over anything involved, things will end like this again and again.

                        Thursday, 17-May-12 06:38:11 UTC from web
                        1. @nerthos I am arrogant, and I am grumpy. But the brony community has never known a more stubborn ally.

                          Thursday, 17-May-12 06:45:41 UTC from web
                          1. @purpletinker That is the way things should be. A leader has to be arrogant, otherwise the weight of responsibility ends up breaking him/her. And if (s)he's not grumpy, the not-so-considerate would disregard warnings and wreak havoc around, confusing politeness with weakness.

                            Thursday, 17-May-12 06:48:39 UTC from web
                    2. @nerthos And if you may have noticed, RDN is in fact have a good boom in growth of late. We should be close to using double the bandwidth of last month, and we have some new users and it's growing. I intend to keep this a safe spot, this captain will go down with his ship before he sees her taken by the enemy.

                      1. @mrdragon this site is important to me because the odds of me hooking up with brony groups in VA is < 0%. They're out there, but apparently hush-hush or inactive.

                        Thursday, 17-May-12 06:32:50 UTC from web
                        1. @crusader8 VA?

                          Thursday, 17-May-12 06:33:31 UTC from web
                          1. @mrdragon Virginia, sorry.

                            Thursday, 17-May-12 06:34:02 UTC from web
                            1. @crusader8 Most likely somewhere out there.

                              Thursday, 17-May-12 06:35:15 UTC from web
                            2. @crusader8 Virginia is a major convergence point for Horse people. You're not looking hard enough.

                          1. @purpletinker yeah... overwhelming inactivity , mostly everyone clamoring for a meetup but no one planning one. If I actually had the resources to arrange and host one, I would, but alas I'm not that type of pony.

                            Thursday, 17-May-12 06:40:24 UTC from web
                      2. @mrdragon Yes, in the last months the site reached a peak of activity few times seen in the past. Though instead of drama and butthurt, this time it's about nice new people and intelligent discussions. I like where this place is going, and I can't but congratulate you on your good work.

                        1. @nerthos Holy sh** for once I get congratulations, you have no idea how many times I come here and watch people congratulates only Cerulean missing everyone else that also helps here. We got rid of the drama a long time ago, and like hell would anyone here let it back on.

                          2. @mrdragon Sorry I don't say it more often, but I really do appreciate everything you do and am thankful for it. And I do enjoy taking with you and giving you hugs. I didn't realize how much it meant to you to be constantly reminded that you are appreciated, I'll try to remember going forward.

                            Thursday, 17-May-12 06:42:48 UTC from web
                          3. @mrdragon Cerulean might keep some things working, but he's the tech. You're now the head of this, and we have to thank you for keeping it running. People usually think he's the one responsible for everything just because he's here all the time.

                            Thursday, 17-May-12 06:43:44 UTC from web
                  2. @mrdragon there's an actual online address in which I can browse the dirty end, and witness loyal people being actively kicked and news sites getting drunk on power? (Speaking of EQD, I wonder what the exact nature of their power is that they're supposedly getting drunk on. I on;ly use the word "supposedly" because I can't confirm or deny it) @scribus I don't feel anything close-knit about bronydom, but maybe that's because I started too late. And I haven't creatively contributed anything with a "wow" factor.

                    Thursday, 17-May-12 06:25:24 UTC from web
                2. @crusader8 I think it's got something to do with the fact that the bigger it gets, the less close-knit it feels.

                  Thursday, 17-May-12 06:14:42 UTC from web
    2. @crusader8 deviantART has a PDF, I think.

    3. @thatonepony Good One. I will give Past Sins this: the guy's work is apparently wildly popular and well-known. I saw My Little Dashie on FimFiction has almost 200k views! I'll be lucky if anything I write gets even 100 views. I'm shooting for 100.
