Hapvw Mnulh Milnum Nim!

Happy 3rd Birthday Horsie Forums :3
Image
On this day, 13th of Feburary 2011, our benevolent admin ComradeCosmobot created these temporary forums for us to use. He posted the link in our IRC channel which was buzzing that day due to the closure of the pony threads on SA from the previous month where we originally gathered, thanks to Redeye. Only a few weeks later we had set up our own pony imagehosting site, Bronibooru. And thus began Ponygoons/mlponies.com, or as the website is now known, The Round Stable.


Since then we've grown to over 2500 members and although some only lurk or may not post anymore there is a constant posting community here. At the same We've added a proper front page to our forums and for a time reported on all sorts of pony news, these days we focus on reviews and other long form articles thanks to Kefkafloyd and the other staff. We still have fun on IRC and horse around in #ponyday when a new episode airs and we always speculate and look forward to the next airing on our forums.

If you're new here or just passing through, consider signing up for an account and join us in talking about those miniature coloured equines. We've got all sorts of subforums for all sorts of discussions.

Happy Birthday to these wonderful forums! I've had a great time being on here so far and I certainly hope that this website continues to live on and thrive for many years to come!

Happy Birthday! :excite: :party: :yay:

2011 was around the time when the message boards that I was a part of really started to take a nose dive, as they went from having hundreds of posts a day to sometimes having less than 50 (and these days only getting around 20, if that). I figured that message boards were a dying breed, and that I would never again be a part of a super active online community like in the good ol' days. Then milesluigi decided to come along and screw all of that up, but I couldn't be happier to be here discussing an awesome show with such a great group of people! It's a shame that it took me so long to finally show up here, although I actually find it hard to believe that today marks exactly 6 months since I registered. Where the heck did the time go? :shock:

Under COPPA, I'm pretty sure I have to ban Horsie Forums :3. :v:

Happy birthday though! :party: I wasn't here from the start, and I was pretty shy to start with, so it was only really around August 2012 where I started posting more often. :modesty:

Let's not forget the questions posed to the last one of these threads.
Casual Viewing wrote: Please, take this time to reflect on another year spent posting about cartoon ponies on the internet. Here are some things you might ask yourself:

- If this is your first year here how did you come to join Ponygoons?

- In this past year what are your favorite memories involving Ponygoons and its community?

- What changes have you observed over the year? What were you expectations one year ago and how have things differed?

- What do you think the future holds?

- Has it really been a full year...? What have you been doing with your life?
  • In the interest of keeping this post (somewhat) short I'll just link the full story of how I joined. But yeah, I'd known about TRS forever (since early 2011, even), but it took me a long time to work up the courage to actually register for a horsie forum like this.
  • There aren't really any major events I really participated in, but that's okay. I'm incredibly happy to just have been a part of this site and its discussions as much as I have. (Seriously, when I registered, I did not think I'd make 6000 posts in the next year, but here we are). I feel like I've opened up a lot, too. Outside of pony things I'm still not all that talkative, but I've still had several meaningful conversations with you all via PM and I think that sort of thing has really helped me understand others better in general.
  • This sounds clichéd, but it feels like we've managed to further shed our ancestral gooniness and only majorly worry about actual problems (DWM, etc.). Sometimes I look back into the old days, back when things like fanfics were either banned outright or couldn't be posted without forcing them through OMT's prereading process, and I wonder why we ever got so worked up about little things. (Hell, we even went so far as to have some shipping discussion in last week's episode thread, and it went smoothly.)
  • More :ponydrugs:, obviously. We've still got half of S4 to watch and lots of comics to read and toys to buy, and all signs point to S5 being in the works right now. 2013 was rather contentious in terms of drama, but given everything we survived last year, I think we can make it through anything at this point.
  • I haven't done much in 2013, but now I'm in something that should hopefully make my life a lot better once it's all complete. Hopefully by this time next year I'll be to where I can come and attend a meetup or a con with all of you.

And a big thanks to Cosmo and all the staff that make horsie forums possible. :shenanigans:

And also a big thanks to everyone who posts here and makes the horsie forums a fun place to visit. :party:

At this point I'm really just looking for an excuse to say "horsie forums" again.

I've made far more friends here than any other community I've been a part of, and it's definitely changed my views on the world, both on social issues and personal lifestyle. As silly as it sounds, it's true. Strange to think that 2.5 years can have an effect like that.

It'll always be ponygoons to me.

But yeah, I get why we got away from that name. Hard to believe it's been three years. And in that time I've changed my avatar just once.

Thanks for three years of laughs!

And exposure to certain facets of nerd culture I'd have never known to exist! :ponynet:

2012 was crazy - 2013 was a bit quieter for me. Lots of work shit that'll bore ya to describe. :smirk:
I guess I met some of you last July.

At Bronycon January 2012 I tripped over a Brony who decided to take a nap on the convention floor in front of an elevator.

This is a fact I feel worth sharing.

Funny, the things that can happen.

Some folks prefer the name Ponygoons, others TRS... Myself, I think I favor "Horsie Forums :3" now. :smirk: We seem to be the first Google result for that at the moment. We should keep it that way.

Anyway, happy birthday, Horsiegoon Stables! :party: :shenanigans:

Please, take this time to reflect on another year spent posting about cartoon ponies on the internet. Here are some things you might ask yourself:

- If this is your first year here how did you come to join Ponygoons?
Not my first year! In fact it's been more than two years!
- In this past year what are your favorite memories involving Ponygoons and its community?
LYAT. NFL thread. All that humor. Ponies?
- What changes have you observed over the year? What were you expectations one year ago and how have things differed?
People got banned. People left. New people joined. Nothing new. The whole debacle over that one thing was pretty strange and even funny.
- What do you think the future holds?
Uhhh... ponies?
- Has it really been a full year...? What have you been doing with your life?
I'm now graduating this semester!!! Raised my GPA again! Met new friends. Took too many classes. Found new hobbies. Learned a lot of things. Also I turned 21 which is a milestone apparently? I gambled in a Las Vegas casino!

Basically, things were god damn awesome. :crack:

also: PONISILVER 4 LIFE, YOU PUNKS

Happy birthday, PONYGOONS!
