Hey all, it's been a while. Remember polls? They are definitely a thing that we can do. Allow me to refresh your memory - a while back we ran a poll on what your favorite secondary characters are; you can check out a summary of the answers here and the raw results here. Nice to see my girl Spitfire got her due.

But now it's time for a new poll! A poll not about the show or the characters, but about you. You fabulous, beautiful fanfic-loving bronies. And pegasisters. If you're into that. Which, come to think of it, is a good question, so answer that too!

Be cool in the comments, people - "love and tolerance" isn't just a good idea... it's the law.

(What? Really? Well it should be.)

L & T are definitely founding principles for the fandom, at least, in my eyes it is. Granted I came from the /b/rony threads circa 2011, so I'm not sure how shared my perspective is.

I'm sexy. Nothing more to say.

So does that mean to say that "love and tolerance" is Judge Dredd? :rainbowlaugh::raritywink::derpytongue2:

>>1045101 how interesting. I am also incredibly sexy.

"A few times a year" should have been options in the questions regarding frequency of types of fics one has read or written. As that would have been far more accurate when answering how often I read original fiction.

I couldn't find "awesomesexual" so I settled for bi. :derpytongue2:

My name is Ben, for Bennett, but all the black kids call me Benjamin.  I'm a 16 year old high school student with seemingly no future.  I'm failing school and I don't have many prominent skills.  I'm slightly sociopathic, and I'm an asshole.  I sit in my room all day dividing my time between games and FiM.  Everyday I try to think about my future and I can't think of anything.

But despite all that, I have a large group of friends, and I remain optimistic in front of them and my family.  I'm making the best of what I can, and even if I can't get a good job, or get a nice woman, I am determined not to sink into the gutter.  I don't do drugs, I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't cut, I don't pierce, I don't dress black, I don't distance myself, I don't ruin moods, I don't skip class, I don't get in fights, I don't let myself get pushed around though, I don't weep and cry about my life, and I don't believe that I have the worst life possible.

So that's me.:twilightsmile:

>>1045101 And a Tim Burton fan, from the looks of your profile pic. I am now tempted to read your actual profile.

>>1045136 Lols. I haven't done almost anything with any of his movies yet. I'm making a Coraline Xover soon, as you can blatantly see by my userpic

I answered other to the smartphone OS question because I don't have or need a smartphone.

There's no option for "none" under "Mobile O.S.", and it's a required field. As the last person in the Western World who does not own a cell phone, I'm offended.:raritywink:

Fair point!

And thanks to your avatar, I read that in Rarity's voice. :raritywink:

You're in good company! Six others in that range so far, and two in the next one up.

Maybe you guys should be friends?

>>1045136>>1045139 I don't believe Burton was involved in Coraline... :applejackunsure:

#20 · 74w, 17h ago · 2 · ·

>>1045147 In the trailer of the movie it said "From the creators of Nightmare Before Christmas"....

#22 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

>>1045153 But on the back of Coraline's disc case his name doesn't appear in the credits. :ajbemused:

I can't wait to see these results. But I did find a problem, since I am both a full time student and I work around 20-30 hours a week, but I could only chose to be one or the other. (chose student, but eh).

#24 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

>>1045145... why, darling, I must say, that's quite an absurd thing to do.

#25 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

>>1045147 No, he was. The man's a genius, I swear.

#26 · 74w, 17h ago · 3 · ·

I don't use a mobile device so I basically had to put in other, other than that I like this survey! It would be nice to know how diverse (and unique) the Brony and Pegasister community is here! :pinkiehappy:

>>1045141 >>1045143

Hey, I don't have one either.

There should be like, a club.

...Actually, nah, that's a lame thing to have a club about.

#28 · 74w, 17h ago · 1 · 2 ·

>>1045134 Uhh... I might sound a bit cranky, but really, why do I need to hear that? I'm just not really interested, nor are anyone else here likely to be. Can't we just all stay anonymous and have fun on the internet, instead of sharing our sad life stories?

#29 · 74w, 17h ago · 3 · ·

As I see it it's more like the Pirates Code:

"Love and Tolerate" is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.:moustache:

#30 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

>>1045159

From the director of Nightmare Before Christmas.

Oh, yeah, sorry RBD this is completely unrelated to the blog:applejackunsure:

It's cool.

Fun fact! Tim Burton didn't direct The Nightmare Before Christmas; Henry Selick did.

#33 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

Done, diddily, did that ish. Now, where is my prize?:rainbowkiss:

I was worried the question would get too finicky and fine-grained dealing with all the possible permutations of studentry and employment, so I just kept it simple and figured people would select which one they felt more strongly about/took up more of their time.

#37 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

>>1045187 He didn't direct it, true, but he wrote it. I actually didn't know he wasn't the director too until now though.

>>1045174>>1045164 That was Henry Selick who directed Nightmare not effing Burton who only PRODUCED it! :facehoof:

#40 · 74w, 17h ago · 1 · 3 ·

>>1045187 Fo' Shizzle? Well, Tim Burton worked on both anyway.

>>1045192 Eh, whatever. It's hardly a big deal at any rate, it's just late and I get a bit annoyed by it. No hard feelings or anything, and carry on doing whatever it is you're doing.

>>1045202

What I was working towards is >>1045147 was correct; Tim Burton had nothing to do with Coraline.

#45 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

>>1045211 Even though his name is not in Coraline's credits as I pointed out to you?

#46 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

>>1045215 Oh. I just wanted to give Burton a bit of credit though. I didn't realize my favorite Burton movie wasn't even directed by him before you said it. I felt the poor guy deserved the mention.

#47 · 74w, 17h ago · · ·

>>1045219 Huh. Doesn't matter anyway, it's my favorite movie nonetheless.

It is kinda funny; I never paid attention myself until a few years ago. Poor Henry Selick!

#50 · 74w, 17h ago · 6 · ·

Just a heads up in case you don't know him, the man who wrote Coraline is Neil Gaiman and that guy is perhaps the most brilliant author alive today, or at least that I know of. His short stories in particular are pure gold... Just wanted go get that out there.
