Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:47 PM)

Stupid tablet made my edit a new post instead.

When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

I think I'm loosing interest in Ponies. They aren't all consuming like they once were. I don't know if it's because I'm not on here every day talking about them, and when I do log on there's such a backlog that I don't even bother reading it. Or maybe it's simply run it's course. It's been a full year now that I've been following this show, and it turned from "This is amazing!" to "Okay, that was fine." I don't know.

I mean that fact that I've got waves 1 and 2 of Blind Bags on my desk below a MLP calender says something. But not even Fluttershy gives the the joy she used to.

Thoughts?

It's quite possible that you're simply burned out from it. Over indulging or obsessing can do that. Relax from it, take a few weeks and watch an ep or two of the new stuff once the season ends. If you're still "blah" on it, then it might have just been a fad.

And, if you are truly done with it, try to keep some of the morality in your heart and mind. You don't need to be a brony to try to make the world a better place.

Hey, if you're not interested anymore, you're not interested anymore, none of us will hold it against you, or at least none of us should.

Wonko's advice is good stuff, so keep that in mind.

This season is missing something from that last season one, that little bit of magic that made it perfect. But, I had this problem before, go watch a horror movie marathon, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Child's Play, Puppet Master, Halloween. Then watch an episode of FiM, it will rekindle your love for it! =D

Scaling obsession back to the point where it's a regular interest among others?

Excellent.

Yeah, I'm in a similiar boat. I still faithfully watch the show each week and enjoy it immensely, still collect the toys, and still peruse this subforum or ED here and there, but I'm not spending several hours every night looking at every PMV and reading fiction and making gifs and looking at fanart. It's a natural winding down.

I wouldn't say I'm losing interest, just that I'm not spending all my time on them.

I don't so much give up on fandoms as get distracted from them by the next shiny to come along. The more specific the fandom, the better it holds my interest, but the more likely it is to cease getting new material (see, for instance, my War Planets or Mystic Knights of Tir na Nog pages). I'm more distractable from huge sprawling fandoms (like Trek or kaiju) because they're too big to really get into in depth, so my roots are shallower. But when it's possible to follow pretty much all of the official stuff and a big chunk of the fan stuff, I find it easier to latch on.

I figure ponies will be one of those things I stay interested in as long as they keep making FiM, at which point I may drift off if G5 doesn't immediately grab me. In many ways, Transformers are an oddity in my fan behavior because it has changed radically many times and still held my interest. (Superhero comics, being something from before I was solidly "fannish", are also an exception.)

In any case, I rarely burn out on any fandom. They wither from the other side first, or I was never that into it to begin with.

I'm still enjoying the show. Of course, I just watch the episodes. I don't follow any fan sites, fan art, message board discussions or anything (barring this detour into the Allsparkle). So there's no burnout.

I still watch every episode as soon as I can find it, but I don't spend all of my spare time sketching ponies anymore, and I've never really delved much deeper into the fandom than these boards--you guys and gals are a great filter, by the way, and I love you all--so while the show no longer devours my life in great gulps, it still maintains a fairly strong hold on me. And I have to say, quite a bit of my own petty/childish/profane/hateful/intolerant attitudes and behaviors have been significantly improved or even completely abolished since I started watching the show and coming here regularly. This show made me a better person, and I will always remember and cherish it dearly for that, and for all of you. Whether any of you leave or not, I want you all to know that you are some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

All of the gratitude, dear friends. All of the gratitude.
FREE CUSTOM PONIES!!
Just PM me whatever specifications you want.
