I guess no one here likes Pokemon D:
I have acquired the screenname MikeNan. See ya out there, and have fun!
“We are responding to the desire by our fans to experience the brand in more ways,” said John A. Frascotti, Hasbro’s chief marketing officer. “They imagined themselves as which pony they would be or which pony they identified with the most.”
I feel like the fandom has been SO misread. Maybe he's talking about the younger fans though, I can't tell. Anyways, if it fails like I think it will, it may be a good thing in the long run - it might be an opportunity to forge a tie between corporate Hasbro and the brony community as consultants: They might be more willing to pursue direct feedback within some online framework. I hope I have time to propose that model to them... and actually code it up.
For the record this is what most threads near the very start of the blog were like - just hundreds instead of thousands of comments and with more mods. Srsly we need our other mods back!
Has this thread been going for how many weeks!? 0_0
Considering it's considered difficult to get a nonresponse bias that's just 1/3 the size of your data set, this site may have as many as a hundred people, plus many lurkers - especially with a little less than 1000 pageviews per day. Of course we could have a bunch of people who are just f5 addicts though XD
But anyways Yuk, this is pretty legit! Good work!
Thanks for getting this posted before EqD, Sleepy
Me Gusta... but besides the fact that it's built already, it's not as cool as the LiPo battery-powered, Arduino-controled Sweetie Bot I designed...
