    Who has the most influence on EQD?

    Aside from Sethisto and Calpain, which 2 people have the most influence on Equestria Daily? I'm talking about the staff, and only the EQD staff, so not like "User" and Light Landstrider. This is for a video I'm making, it's a secret.
  3. Hello I would like to offer a suggestion to help better advertise the forum by adding a tab on EQD's main site a forum link tab or so. That way folks can have a quick access to EQD forums from the main site itself and it would invoke curiosity for folks to try the tab and link out.

    Clans on Forums

    I always wanted to have my own clan on a forum, that way people can attack each other and that would fuel more traffic on the forums. My dream of a Maize clan of my own on EqD can be accomplished if the admins comply. Think of all the extra activities such as clan wars, clan meetups and clan pages can occur. And even the admins can join their own clans and act as if they're in control for once. I always wanted to be the Kernel of my own Clan and today I ask if the admins would allow clans to be a thing and let me create my very own Maize Clan. MAIZE CLAN LOGO "Ego sum triticum" Are you Amaize-ing enough to not shuck?
  5. I made this point in the EqD comments but it's probably been buried in the sands of time, at least here it should get read. Anyway, i think it was a cool thing that the staff over at EqD warned us about spoilers after the leak, i have no problem with that, however do they have to keep reporting on it any more? What i mean is that it's already going to be hard enough to avoid spoilers without EqD reporting on them like they're doing. For example, there's absolutely no need to have posted those screenshots especially on the post detailing what happened for the episode to be released so early, i don't think anyone would've activated their spoiler shields that early and it was the most spoilery thing they've released so far! As for the fan art thing, i hope they hold them back until after the episode airs on Saturday and not post them with the ordinary Drawfriends. The reason being, aside from the spoilers for people who haven't blocked S6 content, is that people who have spoilered the tag will miss out on the Drawfriends and that's just unfair for the people who's art was submitted alongside the spoiler art. I know a lot of you are going to be saying "why don't you just block the S6 tag then?" and comments of the like, i even mentioned it in the last paragraph, but the problem is that some of us don't like to spoiler the tag because we like to see minor spoilers like episode clips and announcements to hype ourselves up for the upcoming episode! I have no problem with them posting the clip when or if it releases later and i look forward to seeing it, something i probably couldn't do if i spoilered S6 posts. So, what do you guys think of the situation? Do you think they should cut down on posting leaked info regarding the latest episode or don't you mind it at all? If anyone from the staff is reading this i'd like to know your opinion too. Thanks!
  6. There comes a time when entertainment transcends itself and evolves into a different beast with its own instincts for us to tame. From puppeteering to animation, from stereoscopes to modern film masterpieces. Humanity's thirst to create, experience and enjoy the surreal has brought us far into the bones of what makes us tick. And with every piece of technology, we go from basic materials like paper and cardboard for board games, to the highly sophisticated device we call our gaming stations. In 1972, Atari's Allan Alcorn was tasked with creating a game based on "Virtual Tennis" he had played at college as a warm-up exercise to show his skills. Allan took it one step further and changed how the game was played by adding the ability to bounce the ball at angles, instead of just straight ahead. When the game was done, it was called "Pong" and it was the world's first game console. The world's first version of Pong Oh how joyous the transition, as mortals attempted to reach into another world, changing how the false environment reacts to our input in a final act of challenging the notion of god. What stops our own reality from being merely a game by higher beings with superevolved intellects and understanding of the universe? To realize that the numbers we input into a computer translates into actions, emotions, rules, etc of another "world", we can all agree how terrifying it must be to ponder the theory of whether humanity is the same. Made up of a sequence of inconsequential numbers. That our actions hold no meaning other than those perceived by our own ignorant minds. A famous painting of Zhuangzi dreaming he was a butterfly. Zhuangzi is an ancient Chinese text from 476-221 BC written by Zhuang Zhou as a foundational text on Daoism. In one of his stories "Zhuangzi Dreams of Being a Butterfly", the story goes: "Once, Zhuang Zhou dreamed he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering about, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn't know that he was Zhuang Zhou. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuang Zhou. But he didn't know if he was Zhuang Zhou who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming that he was Zhuang Zhou. Between Zhuang Zhou and the butterfly there must be some distinction! This is called the Transformation of Things." This is the fundamental issues brought up in Simulated Reality Theories. How would mankind be able to tell if they were within a simulated reality, or in Zhuangzi's case a dream, if we do not even have the rules to follow when distinguishing them? Humanity's greatest struggle is always of the consciousness, whether or not the human mind learns of the actual universe and its principles or rather the universe creating principles simply to humor us. It is foolish not to wonder about the impact we have when technology advances further and further. When games itself become capable of creating life in a separate yet similar world, we realize that there is another final frontier. The earth, sea and space are all physical frontiers for mankind to explore and discover. However, programming and gaming has created another campaign we must take. Is it possible to find out about our reality from learning more about false ones? What distinguishes Battlefront above from reality? If we were in the game, would we even be able to tell the difference? Let's say we agree that humanity is in this supposed simulated reality and we are all being monitored by otherworldly beings who surpass us in intellect. Where would this being even come from? Aliens? Demons? Parallel dimensions? Actually, the answer could be ourselves. Technological Singularity is a theory that suggests that because of the ability for technology to compute at a higher rate, we may accidentally invent artificial Superintelligence that surpasses even mankind's most gifted being. This will trigger a technological growth due to the superintelligence wishing to improve itself, thus, making itself the most powerful device in the universe. Humans would be toys to these superior creatures. In Science Fiction author Vernor Vinge words: "Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended." Of course, Vernor's theory of superintelligence being achieved in 30 years was not proven true, however, his words still stand. If humanity ever reaches that level of technology, humans will find themselves back in the food chain. The big bang created us, we created technology and technology will create other things. Each generation of intelligent beings trumping the last. And as we've seen with automated cash registers and self-driving cars, stumbling upon superintelligence might not be as farfetched as it seems. We might be on the cusp of the end of the human era, not through the death of our reality, but the replacement of it with a simulated experience. Maybe not the death of our bodies, but the death of consequence as we wander through the universe of a game that means absolutely nothing. So I propose we make a pony game based on Star Wars Battlefront. Luna could be the Empire and Celestia could be the Rebels. That sorta deal.

    A EqG Spin Off Movie

    Canterlot High Ponies. There should be like a spin off movie where the ponies get human features like the humans get pony parts. So like the ponies get human arms and legs, but pony bodies and faces.
  9. I have started a group to expose EqD for the lying scum they are. They have been touting this "Sethisto" person as a real individual when in fact, the "Sethisto" you see at conventions is nothing more than an actor paid by Calpain to take the blame when things are tough. Proof: 1) No one can make that many spelling mistakes and not realize it. This is obviously a ploy by Calpain to make Sethisto look like the dumb leader who can't be bothered. Calpain has tried his best to make it seem as if Seth is an entity of his own by giving him a personality. 2) No one can actually like Trixie without projectile vomiting. Time and time again I have heard of individuals going to the hospital for saying Trixie is best pony and meaning it, yet, Sethisto has no signs of any symptoms when he does so at conventions. He is clearly reading from a script written by Calpain just to push even further the fact that Sethisto might be "eccentric" or "totally real". 3) Look at this man Big bucks was paid to have this sad soul don this outfit in public. Calpain has scoured funds across every couch he has as well as every couch his relatives have to procure enough to make the actor above humiliate himself for our viewing pleasure. You can see the pain in his eyes. Need I say more? I need more evidence men. Make sure you give it solid backing so we can force EqD into revealing the truth.
  10. Just jumping into this to see whats up, and not much else... I'm not a forum kinda guy y'know?
