      Thanks Candace.

        Recently turned 20 and am still younger than the average person that likes what is often called a childrens' show. If I was 5 or 8 now, I probably would have never watched this, because "Ponies? Ew." In hindsight, it's negatively amazing how close-minded children often are and easily get away with it for years.

          The Brony Study, first round was conducted in November 2011. The study recruited thousands of participants from several major brony sites.

          The results page was down for a while but now it's back up!
          http://www.bronystudy.com/id1.html

          They are doing another round of study, I didn't look at the survey yet as it is very long.

          I haven't seen any reliable data on this yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if more men watch this show than little girls.

          Dun, dun, dun!

          I came to visit! Ha! Ha! Sorry for my absence, I've been so busy with life, trying to find work... dealing with life issues.

          So, how are all you doing? Well, I take it?

Pokemon was the in thing 1998, all the "cool" guys played Pokemon cards. (This is the reason Pokemon has older fans.) But the previous generations of MLP had never reached that level.

          Why would these same people get into MLP now?
          That's semi-accurate seeing I just turned 20 today.

          And I think the same people are just now getting into MLP because the appeal of FiM is different form the 90s MLP. Lauren Faust's goal was to challenge the show's "girly" appearance and she basically did well-developed character and a more adventurous and action-packed story. The pilot episodes are an example of that. If you told me at 8 years old that I would watch My Little Pony in 10 years, I'd laugh in your face. But if you told me I would still like Pokemon in 10 years, I'd probably believe you more. It's just the fact that MLP's demographic is young girls and Pokemon is generally a show for guys.

          eep, Yoshi! I haven't seen you around in forever! >: I thought you were pretty much gone for good at one point so I took you off my PC Family list in my signature. ;_; Sorry for the super slow reply; I've been forgetting to check the club.

          I've been pretty good, my last final is tomorrow and then I'll be free from class for the summer. Feels strange with no MLP to watch every Saturday though, lol.

          And welcome, new members! :3

          Wow... Took my a while to find this gemstone thread. I guess I'm no Rarity after all.

          - Favorite Episode: Season 2 Episode 3. I lol'ed so hard at Twilight. xD
          - Favorite Main Pony: Fluttershy... Dunno why, but I like her. o.O
          - Favorite Side Pony: Big Mac. I love his 'Eeyup' and 'Nnope'
          - About Me: My youngest brother was watching MLP and at first I find it childish, but after he noticed me, he asked me if I want to watch the first episode. Meh, what the hay, I have nothing to do anyway, so yeah. It may be childish, but I like the story and the approach. So, I BLAME my brother for making me a brony. xD

            I watched my first FiM episode last year in the autumn, and I began to notice the first avatars and sigs last summer.

            Hahah.
            Well yes I do.
            In fact, I just finished watching every episode from season 1 to season 2 once again.
            I want to say that the Canterlot wedding was very epic.

            Anyway, I want to give us something to discuss...
            I heard a rumor that Season 3 will no longer be in Ponyville?
            Any thought about this though?

            Why have you been saying that you hate ponys in other threads if you haven't even watched the series yet

            ...Wow. When was the last time I posted in here? I got a Pinkie Pie wallet a few days ago and I really love it. :3 I'm planning on making a Pinkie Pie collection soon.~

            And I want season three to get here already... but good things must come to a wait.

            Squee DJG is a brony. :3 I doubt they would move them out of Ponyville. It'd be too much of a change for no good reason. In fact, here's a fact about Season 3 from Tara Strong, queen of bronies. ^_^

            "It's so cute" is the only spoiler I can read in that image, but anyway, I don't think I'd like to be spoiled.

            Yeah, the image is really small, but "it's so cute" could mean anything and can give us endless possibilities for what Season 3 will entail.

            If Season 3 isn't set in Ponyville... well, that would be really interesting! I wonder how they'll pull it off, if it's true! o3o

            Also, Tara's pretty much just trolling as usual. She does that a lot. xD;
            I mean, the last two seasons were cute, no? o3o

            It would be odd for the show to not take place in Ponyville after all this time. I can't seem to imagine where else it would take place. And why would they just leave Ponyville? Doesn't seem to make sense, but if the rumors are true then it will all be explained in s3 episode 1.

            And Tara's being her usual self.

              There is new FiM toys called Crystal Kingdom or something like that so maybe it's the new location.

              On another page I read there will be a Xmas episode.
