I thumbed it down, because it was getting over 5, just like they said to

so apparently if you like something and it has over five thumbs you thumb it down? Yeah that makes perfect sense.

there is a next button. The general public of FJ can use it. FJ even makes it easy so all you have to hit is the right arrow on the keyboard. I use it to skip a lot of the morbid-channel stuff so i know how easy it is. I've never seen an art pony post higher than the 5th or 6th pages. If someone gets that far in they shouldn't complain about what they see. It's all crap or group specific stuff at that point and they should know that.

Alright, I just don't understand, at first, everyone was all "Ya, lets post pics and crap", and now, you're telling us to thumb down each others content just for the sake of avoiding a little hate? If you know people as well as I do, you know that they're ******* retarded especially on the internet, and they're going to fight over almost anything. You're right, there should be more funny pictures, but just the idea of thumbing down a fellow bronies content just because it isn't the funniest thing in the world, just doesn't seem right to me.Now obviusly, this doesn't apply to everything, fan art might not be funny to anyone, but if everyone thumbs down that specific kind of content, you're just going to make whoever posted it feel like utter **** . No offense, but I dissagree with almost everything you have stated here.

sincerely, sparkofinsanity

The only problem I feel with this is that while we "try" to adhere to a code of conduct, nobody else on the site is required to do so, with the exception of site-wide rules such as no porn in sfw and CP = instaban. I get that this is more of a "being the bigger person" kind of deal, but I feel most people won't moderate their amount of pony content because they don't have to moderate any other type of content. And the whole "5 or below" thumb rule is probably going to be followed about 0.1% of the time. I feel that every problem could be solved if people exercised tolerance. I tolerate the Stoner channel, even though I don't smoke. I tolerate Dolan, even though I'm not a big fan of it. I tolerated morbid back when it had a big content surge, even though some of that stuff scared the living **** out of me. Tolerance would solve this problem instantly. Live and let live, and all that jazz.

Thank you for posting Darbius.

I did notice a massive increase in our posts in the newest upload section yesterday. What would be nice for the OCs being posted, is a place for only the eyes of bronies in this channel to see, I'm pretty sure the rest of FJ doesn't really like it when they see us making our own little ponies.

Per your own request, I highly recommend that we thumb you down until you are at less than five thumbs. You're welcome.

I wholly disagree. As bronies it is not our responsibility to thumb down content we like just because others don't care for it. A comment IS NOT better than a thumb IMO. Thumbs are what we use to spread good content and keeping thumbs low merely makes it hard for good content to stand out. I give you an A for effort but that's all. That's like complaining that there are too many 420 posts on 420. Or that there were too many sopa posts when that debacle reared its head. If non bronies don't like it that doesn't mean they should be given extra consideration by making us thumb down something we like at the price of thumbs for good OC. This is the internet, it is an equal playing field for all sides not just for the non-brony sides. You're talking about giving extra power to haters to suppress what they hate just because they hate something. **** THAT. If this is the case I want to put an end to the CANCER that is SPIDERMAN DERAILS. That ****** old as dirt and yet as bronies we know all too well how haters love to derail pony content with Spiderman. If you wanna play unfair then at least be unfair to EVERYONE.

If only this could work, I applaud your attempt at it, but I wont hold my breath. And honestly before we start talking about art we should address the OC ponies and the reaction pics as content .... they dont need to be, thumb them down to oblivion to keep people from posting them. If we do this, and kick lovesmylittlepony off funnyjunk) I think it would get a lot better.

I want to say that this was well written, but I'm having difficulty accepting the word "anypony".

It's like... **** .

Perhaps I would be more inclined to obey the moderatoration of the Ponytime channel if it didn't say ' **** all of these faggots.' at the top... Why should I respect someone else's wishes when they don't even respect me? Even if it wasn't you that initially wrote that, I won't take heed of someone who is in support of that bastard, 'shadowofthewhisps'.

That aside, I also have some issues with what you have said. I agree that there shouldn't be art or plain unfunny content (for the most part) on the channel. However, I feel as though it is entirely unfair and unjust to force such pony content out the window when equivalent non-pony content on this website remains. Why should we have to follow such potentially general rules when no one else has to? That seems a little unfair, doesn't it?

The Brony community on this website is bigger than any other single sect of Funnyjunkers, and hence why there are more pony posts in relation to Dolan, Stoner-Humour, and Morbid posts. That also means that there are more people who appreciate it - funny or not (but then again, there are many equivalent non-pony posts which are widely accepted). The percentage of people on this website who hate the Brony community is often overexaggerated. Very few people do have an issue with these posts, it's just that the ones who do are the ones who tend to speak out, and how they do so gives the illusion of having a bigger voice. You don't hear people speaking out against posts just because they are Pokemon, Metal, or non-pony related, but that's because we arn't autistic twelve year old children. Those 'haters' are exactly those types. They are people who do not deserve to be catered to, and, judging by the way they act (oh god... there's so much to list and it's all true), are probably too young to be on this website anyway. The 'haters' would probably want each and every one of us dead, just because they can, and think they have the excuse to justify it.

I completely agree with this, except that the newest uploads are always clogged with random stuff anyway. An influx of pony posts didn't really make that any worse.

However, I still think a channel filter is the absolute best solution.
