    What is the single biggest feature you'd like on Fimfiction?

    If you could pick one feature for the site to suddenly have, what would it be? This is your chance to get across that genius idea that you can't believe I haven't thought of.

    Features that will never ever ever happen:

    New MLP Convention News Service Launches

    New MLP Convention News Service Launches

    We're excited to announce that Everfree Northwest has become the official site blogger for MLP convention news here on FIMFiction. We will be providing regular site blogs aggregating convention news not just for our own convention, but for any and all MLP conventions that wish to participate. Our goal is to be a central hub for fanfiction and writing-related convention news for the FIMFiction community. By extension, we want to help bring a strong fanfiction presence to MLP conventions around the world, and encourage inter-convention cooperation and outreach.

    What this means for you, the reader and potential con-goer.

    You'll see regular posts from us (as social site blogs) in your normal FIMFiction feed. These posts will aggregate news from MLP conventions near and far, with an emphasis on fanfiction and writing related items. You'll find guest announcements, writing contests, volunteer requests, and all sorts of other related items. We'll also be maintaining a public directory of participating conventions if you want to reach out and ask questions, or get more involved with your local con.

    What this means for you, the writing and fanfiction staff at a convention.

    We're your contact point on FIMFiction for submitting news items. Our process details and guidelines, as well as registration form, can be found here, but the short version is that we'll be taking news submissions from all conventions and combining them into regular, friendly-and-PG-rated social site blog posts, as well as providing a public directory. We highly encourage all conventions to participate, and to work together to make the global MLP fanfiction community a bigger, better place. Click here to read our guidelines and register.

    FAQ

    What's a site blog? A site blog (or Social Site Post) is a special type of blog post that shows in the feed of all FIMFiction members who have not explicitly turned off "Social Site Posts" rather than just those following the poster's account.

    Isn't this just more spam in my feed? Possibly. If you have no interest in conventions at all, then we apologize. That said, we also understand that polluting your feed with unwanted items is no benefit to anyone. That's why you'll see, at most, one aggregated post from us each week that condenses the information from multiple cons into one post. You can also disable all social site posts in your FIMFiction settings.

    As a convention yourself, won't you be a bit biased? We promise to work hard not to be. Our own news will go through the same process as everyone else, and we are taking steps to make it as fair and friendly as we can. More importantly, we believe a stronger fanfiction scene at other conventions benefits us as well, inspiring new ideas and friendly challenges that push us to be better.

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.

"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.

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:

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:

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

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 · 85w, 5d ago · · ·

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 · 85w, 5d 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 · 85w, 5d 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 · 85w, 5d 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.

>>1045161

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 · 85w, 5d 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:

>>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.

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

#45 · 85w, 5d ago · · ·

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

#46 · 85w, 5d 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.

>>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 · 85w, 5d 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.
