    Groups Post - November 2015

    Groups Posts are a monthly group advertisement blog open to anyone who wants a signal boost. If you're interested in having your group advertised in one of these, send me a PM with the name of the group, a link to its front page, and a brief description of what the group is for. I'll copy this directly into the post, so write it like you're trying to tell other people about why they should join or pay attention to your group - anything up to around 150-ish words is fine.

    Not sure how I managed to completely forget to post this over the weekend like I'd originally planned. Whoops. I'll just blame Fallout 4 even though that doesn't make any sense shut up


    The AppleDash group has been around since mid-2012, not long after season 2 finished airing. Last month we hit the 2000 member mark, but we know we can do better than that! The group is home to a great bunch of people who are passionate about one of the oldest ships in the fandom and who also love a good conversation—whether it's help with writing a fic or just shooting the breeze. The group also occasionally holds contests and large, organized collaborations, as well as smaller, ongoing collabs, such as our prompt tag. Head on over and say hi; we'd love to have you!

    100,000 Words

    Welcome to 100,000 Words, where we greet the stories of great writers that have a grand total of over 100,000 words! There's no limit to the amount of stories you can find in our little group, but we need more people, so come on in and add your favorite stories with fantastically high word counts!

    The Game Theorists

    Hello Internet, welcome to Game Theory.

    [insert GT Theme here]

    That's right. Finally, the official group has been made for all of you theorists. We theorize, discuss our theories and keep you updated on MatPat's videos/GT Live. If you want to post a theory using a video or a Livestream- even just writing it on the forums, we welcome it all! We are glad to be here in this little brony community, so be sure to join! Remember, Look Smart, and Be Smart.

    But that's just a Theory. A game theory!

    Equestria Legends Online Fan Group

    Have you read Equestria Legends Online? Yes, then come on down and join our little group, where you can create your own side-story for this very popular fic by Shadowflame. If you haven't, join and catch up on the story's awesomeness! ELO is about a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) based off My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. During the story, some dark events ensue, and the main characters have been giving a chilling conclusion. You can no longer log out of the game. (And no, its not a SAO rip-off, its just SAO inspired.)

    OC Tales

    You remember Five Score? Remember PEv? Well, here in OC Tales, they're something a bit different. In OC Tales, you can join the verse as bronies across the Earth begin to become their OCs all because in "The Art of Becoming a Pony OC" the main character's, Len, brother, Sam, decides to fiddle with science. The group is currently moving into the Equestria stage of the Timeline, but we're still open to new stories!


    Revamped and stronger than ever, the Displaced group has become stronger!  We've remodeled the group, and now, we can welcome you even better! Come and join the largest collaboration of stories as they intertwine with one another and create one massive Multiverse, bringing together entire new Universes and all kinds of people. Don't like the Displaced stories you've read? That's fine, you can probably find a fic you like out there in our 500+ story Vault!

    That's it for November. See you next month!

    Rule clarity issues

    As it has been pointed out there are some clarity issues with some of our new rules and a few problems created, we have made some clarification changes, here for your convenience:

    General Conduct


    • Posting of anyone’s personal information other than your own without permission is prohibited. This includes name, street address, email address, IM screennames, etc.

    • Posting your own personal information is not recommended and done at your own risk, and we cannot help you with any problems this might result in.

    • You may not expose a link between two profiles on or off Fimfiction, that the profile owners did not already document. If both profiles are on Fimfiction, a report should be filed on one of the users in question if the user is violating our secondary account rules.

    General Conduct

    Registration and account security

    • Multiple people sharing the same computer, mobile or other internet-capable device or internet connection may be subject to increased scrutiny of their behavior if the activity between the two overlap.


    Don't post (content)

    • The same story twice. This does not include variants of the same story where the two versions differ on a rating tag, such as a Teen version and a Mature version.

    • Stories you have deleted and are now resubmitting. Please contact a moderator to have your original deleted story recovered.

    Please see the rules page for our full rules, these are only the changes.

    Ninja knighty edit: I've fixed a couple of major issues with the gdoc importer which should mean it doesn't drop paragraphs anymore. Feel free to test and let us know if you still get problems.

    Results for character tag survey

    It took a little while, but I've compiled the results for the tag survey and organized them, as well as completed internal discussions about some of the more edge-case-y tags. Please don't expect these tags to be added right away, or to all be added at once, as adding these will take some time staff-side and we think there might be a couple of minor related problems to be solved before everything can get added.

    Please also note that the list is sorted alphabetically, but this does not reflect the order things will be added in, we will try to get more common requests added first. Additionally, the categories listed here were not gathered from the survey, they're being added as staff discussion while looking at character tags showed we also lack a few notable categories.

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"....

#23 · 135w, 6h ago · · ·

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 · 135w, 6h 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:

There should be like, a club.

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

>>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 · 135w, 6h 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:

From the director of Nightmare Before Christmas.

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

#36 · 135w, 6h ago · · ·


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 · 135w, 6h 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:

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

#45 · 135w, 6h ago · · ·

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

#46 · 135w, 6h 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 · 135w, 6h 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 · 135w, 6h 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.
