I don't watch the show, but I'd like to Thank every brony that plays modern warfare online for making my day a little less filled with unintelligible profanity.

Thank you.

for those who care, the ponies have apparently beaten 4Chan: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/02/we-dont-really-post-4chan-news-much.html

I've never used 4Chan before, and I don't plan to start. I'll stick to Ponychan, thanks :P

Haven't watched new episode (I literally just woke up and am about to embark back into Skyrim for the day after eating breakfast), but there was a new episode announcement last night:

Episode: Dragon Quest

Synopsis: Spike joins the Great Dragon Migration to discover his true identity, but it might not be what he really needs.

Absolutely adored the new episode, it was one of those ones that worked with me on a personal level. I'm the sort who a) loves making others happy (really, nothing gives me more of a satisfying ego boost), b) who can be profoundly irritating without quite realizing it, and c) mess things up quite by mistake. Also, that song's probably my new favorite of the show, usurping Winter Wrap Up and Find a Pet (glad it finally arrived, I've been waiting ages so I could stop worrying about the leak). Loved all the weird Pinkie animations in this one as well, especially the art shift in her head.

Good stuff all around. Also, Jayson Thiessen was at Animation on Display in SF today, so I got to hear him talk about the show (and again tomorrow, he's got a second panel). Met him for a short period a little later (he signed my Comic Con poster), he's a wonderfully nice dude.

Episode reenforced Pinkies crippling abandonment issues.  Was a good episode, song was enjoyable.  One annoyance was a far to convenient resolution.

I only skimmed the interview, but in regards to there being a Scootaloo episode, someone did ask Jayson that at the panel on Saturday. He just responded with "Gotta wait and see" :P

"The Last Roundup" finally made it to iTunes, and Derpy's name has been removed, and lines redubbed.

Don't really like that they removed the name drop, but considering Tabitha thought she was voicing a guy, I really don't mind the new voice.  Kind of like it.

The hell?! Why would they do that? It was such a great nod to the fans. Boo.

But seriously, deep breaths first. Mixed feelings on the voice (old one sounded fine, gender issues and all), but the lack of the name drop (and they fixed her eyes too I believe) is most aggravating. Of course, the many YouTube editions and Torrents still have the original version, and I think the upcoming DVD release is unchanged as well, but still... if this has become Hasbro's official stance on the issue, then it's a darn shame. Especially if folks within the fandom whining are what caused it to begin with.

A message from an animator. Derpy survives. She just probably won't be named. And remain a background pony.

And yes, the DVD will remain unchanged. Hopefully.

But seriously. This is a background character. The fans who are bitching should shut up. I know I got a bit uncomfortable hearing the voice. Having been around disabled kids a lot, I could tell instantly that it might not gel with those sensitive to the disabled. We older fans need to remember that we don't control the show. Unless there's an episode planned with a positive focus on Derpy and whatever condition she has, it's not right for us to scream and whine about this.

Because then we sound like ignorant children. And that's not what the show is about.
