May the internex continue to be blessed with pony goodness thanks to the arena. I've tried other forms, but I just get lost...
Plus I can be as weird as I want to be on here.

Agreed! It's a safe space in which you can write an actual post and have people actually read the whole thing without being told three lines are a wall of text or being spat at in chatspeak.

There's no need to be liked or unliked, and no pressure to respond to something at x time or y time.

One of the people I know in another community keeps going on about the need for 'content'. Sometimes I don't want to give the internet 'content'. Sometimes I would like people to see more than just "cute picture LOL".

The internet was a gateway for me when I was a teenager and young adult in a way I don't think it can be for young people any more. It was a place that gave people who struggled to explain things face to face in words a way to put them down coherently instead, and time to edit, think and rephrase before posting.

Now it's been reclaimed by mainstream and is full of rules and conventions and tropes and cliques and factions again, just like the rest of the real world is and always has been.

May the Arena never fall to those vices, since it's one of the few places where I am not afraid to post honestly.

So true, this is probably one of the friendliest and most positive communities on the Internet these days, plus its web forum form reminds me of the way simpler times of the 2000s.

I do adore this format!  And the people are nice too.  I love reading all the comments on here and people’s thoughts on pony subjects.  It makes me happy.

This forum is the first online community I became a member of and I’m SO grateful I started things out here! Everyone is so positive, kind and patient with people who are still learning their way around the internet! :) I was genuinely shocked at the rudeness I saw in other online communities as I began to venture out at first. Although im more used to it now I’m so grateful there is still a place where I can come and feel safe in sharing my opinions and love of ponies!

Also big yes to the this forum having the best layout of pretty much any website out there! I get so sick of “feeds” where I only get to see the most popular content! I swear even when I set my preference to most recent I still get some weird order and don’t get to see everything that’s being posted. Also the replies and threads are so easy to read and scroll through here. It’s very much appreciated!
