Have I mentioned this community is great?
« on: December 02, 2021, 06:00:58 PM »
Sometimes I forget when I’ve been away for a while but this community really is something else. I adore like 99% of the aspects of it, which is quite rare.
Special shout out to sellers/traders for being so professional. I don’t think I’ve ever had a late shipment or any funny business without legit reason and great communication from the seller. That is definitely not the case when I collect in other communities.

Hearts all around.

The fact that it still exists so strongly in a world where other communities have been literally destroyed by social media?

The fact that people here post intelligently and listen to one another's concerns and try to help?

The fact that fans of all ponies are welcome here?

...Yeah, there are times when people disagree, but that's only human. This is literally the last bastion of the real old pony community for me. The fact it is still here when most other communities I used to know (pony and other) have been eroded away by this fixation with like buttons and replacing words with silly memes is awesome.

Social media has its place, of course. I just feel like this is better.

I love this place too.  I'm a member of another collecting community that isn't about ponies and although I've met some great people through that site I find myself here much more often than the other one.


I feel that people here really care about each other.  Because I joined the Arena, I found someone that I consider a good friend that I can have in depth discussions with over our favorite manga and anime. :D

We do worry about the frequency of pantsless interludes that occur however. You might want to look into that ;)

In seriousness, this has been a real point of respite I think for a lot of people through this pandemic. Not only sharing our experiences but sometimes shouting into the void when everything else seems to be falling apart.


And manga and anime discussions with friends are awesome =D =D =D

*flashbacks to the 90s, full of people lying to scam plastic ponies*  I guess we rooted some of the bad ones out early, lol!  Things were pretty crazy before Paypal existed!

I love all the devotion / resources for restoring ponies, so much love and care for our little plastic friends. <3

LM, if you remember, we did used to have pretty fierce policing strategies, and we did track and trace scammers, keep tabs on them and so on. They did exist but the community was smaller and we were able to keep track more easily because there were fewer platforms to do it on. But yeah, there were some issues back then too.

We tracked them, but Lexi and . . . Roy?  wasn't one of them named Roy? . . . got away with a loooot.  As a community we were far too forgiving.  Lexi definitely came back several times after crying crocodile tears about how sorry she was (but not sorry enough to refund anyone's money, lol).  Sometimes even longtime community members would end their stay with a huge, dramatic scam.  It was crazy. 

eBay was so risky in those days too because they had no way of forcing a seller to return money;  so periodically you'd have a seller just take all the money orders and disappear into the mists.  I remember sending $20 for a "MOC Love Letter Pony" and praying that the auction--which had no picture--was legit.

This the place I always come back to. Because this a special place with great members. I think its my second home. I made some friends and lost some I guess. Yes I like it here. :) I think its THE place I can unwind and talk about my love of ponies.
