When two people strongly disagree with eachother on a subject or topic.
It's sorta funny, because way back when the CMC first made their debut, Scootaloo was my favorite for a long time. And these days it's Sweetie Belle. But com'on, truly the most adorabelle.
The list of merchandise changes a little bit each year. This past year we had plushies of the three Bronycon mascots. Bronycon shirts in various sizes, a special card game playmat, a customized deck of cards, books written by some of the guests of honor with an autograph voucher, and Bronycon posters and pins. I could very well be forgetting an item or two. But to find out all of what we'll have in-store for this year you'll just have to stop by. :)
Those of you planning to head to Bronycon this year, hope to see you there! Swing by the convention store and say hi! :)
And you will love her and hug her and pet her...
I've known that for many years. I've even hopped in there a few times. However, like some, I'm not a big fan of IRC. But that's my personal taste.
I still like the forum idea as well. It's been talked about for SO long now around EqD. But just has never become a reality. I know some aren't especially keen on forums and I can understand that. But the great thing about a forum is it would simply be another place for those who are bored or looking to chat more with others to go and chat. It's not required to visit and I doubt it would change the commenting in posts themselves much. I think most who comment here would continue to do so with or without a forum existing as well.
I don't believe he means replacing the normal EqD commenting system such as Intense Debate or Disqus with a forum, but having a forum and an added extension of the site. In that way, you still have the usual commenting in posts like this, but the forum you can go to as well if you should choose to. And in that case, if the forum were to wilt away eventually, the commenting in posts wouldn't likely be effected.
I gotta admit, as an old coot 'round here, I'll miss Intense Debate if it does end up getting switched over. I guess I've just grown used to it over the years. Though I don't think I'm as big on it as some others, I'll miss all my comments too. It's sorta a way to show a commenter has a fairly long history commenting. But I'm sure it'd be fine and people would come to get used to the change over time. I remember either Disqus and/or Blogger as the commenting platform here way back in the day. Still have my account so if the switch does occur, I'm still good. :)
