Haha... Reddit. True Story - by: FiM Derpy Hooves

Gawker, Time Magazine, New York Times, Wallstreet Journal, Huffington Post, Something from Washington State, one from Portland, Oregon,  Wired, Kotaku, IGN and Mashable.

Those are the publications/news outlets I can list off the top of my head that have done a report on the fanbase within the past month or two.


We have another two that just came out today after the Huffington Post article.


Mashable put the Ellen McClain letter reading to Celestia in their Meme Machine semi regular post this week and Wired informed the world of that Brony Census project that has been going on for a while, totally not the same report that Dr. Psych Ology is working on that he had a presentation on at Bronycon last weekend. Both articles show intrigue into the workings of the fanbase, hopefully people realize that there’s more to the fanbase than EqD, I have bloodstains on my wall in the spot I bang my head against every time.

Both are kind of old news but the actual news is how much we’re in the spotlight, we’ve had these moments before and I’m sure we’ll get them again in the future. Make it count and help make us look good folks!

    Where is that IGN article? I can’t seem to find it.

    • plaster

      i believe it was the one on the Mane 6 Fighting game or one of the MMO’s

      • XTUX345

        Can I please have a link to it?

        • plaster

          hmm, i think i may have been wrong because now I can’t find it. It may have been just kotaku. Sorry for the inconvenience

          • XTUX345

            Well, I do know for sure that Kotaku did do an article on it, but I haven’t been able to locate any on IGN.

    I don’t get it. Why don’t they interview the Minecraft community ? At the moment /Co/ would kill a puppy if it meant that the pony thing dies.

  • Ahhaha! I just typed in derpyhooves.com to see what’d pop-up, and I see my picture on the front page. Wow, totally unexpected. xD
