Yikes, Taco. We've had a couple hurricanes before but five in a row is crazy. Let's hope Matthew has good manners. :|

Heads up, everypony! 

 

I'll be going to a convention from Thursday, October 27 until Monday, October 31. I will have limited if any time to check online. I will, however, finish my threads for Nightmare Night, and when I return I will resume any regular threads.

Going home for Thanksgiving, and sadly, mom's house has no Wi-Fi. 

 

So I'll be out of contact this coming Wednesday and Thursday (11/23 & 11/24)

 

For all our American bronies and Pegasisters on Canterlot.com, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

 

:D:D:D

Like Mojo, I will also be braving a long car-trek through busy roads..avoiding speed-traps..Overturned semis and your typical crazy people for Thanksgiving at the family house. So I'll be away from Thus-Sat. So hope you all have a festive week wherever you are...

I just kinda dropped off the site for a bit there, didn't I? I don't have much motivation for RPing right now and kind of haven't been really doing much internet things in general. I probably should have said this a little bit sooner lol. I'm gonna visit more but I won't be joining any RPs right now. Still I miss the community and will be doing other things here and there. :blush:

Going to drive home and visit with my family tomorrow (Dec 26) and Tuesday (Dec 27). 

 

Didn't get to be with them for Christmas, so this is the next best thing.

 

But since mom has no Wi-Fi, I'll be away from the net for those two days.

As they say, all good things must come to an end.

 

The fandom has been very good to me.  For the most part, I've enjoyed my 7+ years being associated with this website and MLP FiM in general.  However, I just don't have any more enthusiasm for the show anymore.  Haven't watched a single episode of Season 8 and I probably won't.  I've tried to keep myself involved here by joining a few RPs as Granny Smith, but I just can't continue on in them.  

 

Bottom line, outside of some occasional lurking, I'm done here.

 

I want to thank all of the friends I've made over the years here.  There's just too many of them to list, and I'm grateful for sharing the fandom experience with you all.  

 

I just can't deny it any longer, my heart just isn't in the show anymore.  

 

So, goodbye Canterlot.com, it's been fun, but now, it's done.

Sooooo...I will be missing from evening of September 2 up to 9th, maybe 10th. Going on some much delayed vacation (Not by much, just five years.), so no network connection for me.

Huh I just found this so I'll revive this necrotic thread.

 

I can't say it's been fun. It has been a hard road trying to settle myself here after drama from a previous group who, to this day, continues their antics. I have had some fun threads, finished very few.

 

Because people force their own headcanons on others I find myself and my character, OOC and IC, being regularly accosted despite it being Canon in both show and comics that he is a good noodle. Well I can't stand any more. The lack of community and conversation has killed my muse completely and I don't see it coming back ever. I've made some friends. Others decided to make an enemy of me unnecessarily. 

 

I have Asperger's and it is not something I like to admit but to get people to actually talk to me like a normal person it seems, at times, I had to admit such things.

 

My characters were altered during the application process (of which later became Canon despite being Canon in comics and the old series long before) in order to participate in RP, characters I had to apply for because there were none who wished to play with my Discord. Overall I felt the experience negative and cliquey, unopen to a member who tried their hardest for almost three years to be part of this community. 

 

A player should not need to try three years to be accepted. No matter what character they play. I do feel hurt and that it is something that cannot be repaired because of the idea that 'I don't like this character idea.' instead of 'I want to RP'. 

 

Bad form. I hope in the future other Discord players or anyone to join isn't treated like this than told that it is basically their fault for picking the character. 

 

Goodbye.

Ugh. I'm very sorry to see you go...I'll miss your art here (I am following you on your assorted art pages) and your awesome posts...Discord drove my characters crazy, but I loved every single one of those posts. :wail:

I am sad to see you go...and, I guess , a little guilty as well (glances at all the unfinished RP's). I myself have my share of problems, being insanely reclusive

 and withdrawn - being afraid to hang on social media, public chat's etc. due to my paranoia.

 

I can only assume that some people become so invested with their characters that they take any actions that put them in embarrassing or humiliating situations as a slight against themselves. I know I did when I was younger, Roleplaying on other sites, thinking my creations were a gift to other's so how dare they put misery on them.

 

I will certainly miss your involvement Rex. It added so much needed spice in that overwhelming amount of slice-of-life threads towards which I have often a mixed feelings. And I admit, seeing your Discord's actions drive other characters into hair-pulling frustration was incredibly amusing. Squall will miss your Discord's too, and all those unpredictable challenges he threw at him ,that allowed the noblepony to keep himself sharp.

 

So Godspeed Rex. I hope we meet out there, on other forum. And perhaps we actually finish a thread for once. Or maybe not. It's a journey that counts ;-).
