    I've been to quite a few cons, but I'm a Fluttershy to the core (mixing up my pony references, oop :p) and tend to get nervous around new people/large crowds etc, and I know lots of others feel the same so I'm glad this exists ^^ Looking forward to seeing/hopefully not too awkwardly talking to all of you guys~

    Glad to see this is a thing - this will be my first pony con and I'm certainly on the Fluttershy side of things! Looking forward to it though!

    I have a slight conundrum here because in one way, I think being the "Fluttershy" in the Fluttershy club is appropriate for me since I find it difficult to mingle with people... initially. Once I've mingled, I'm fine. On the other hand I also feel that I'd be appropriate to being the "Pinkie Pie" considering it's not like I'm shy when speaking to others once I've mingled with them.

    Of a choice between being the "Fluttershy" or "Pinkie Pie", I feel I'd much rather be the "Pinkie Pie" because, as I stated, it's not a case of being shy. It's a case of finding it awkward to initiate conversation with strangers. Also, we need all the "Pinkie Pies" we can get since it's harder to fill out, so I'd rather help out with filling in the spaces for being a "Pinkie Pie". If that isn't of any trouble for y'all, I'd like to volunteer as a Pinkie Pie Pal. :p

    The Pinkie Pie Team is now assembled, but we can never have too many pinkies, so you're always welcome to join in and help out – just by being there!

    No sign up needed for Fluttershys, just be there! I'll be publishing the official meet up schedule this weekend, it'll also be in the con book!

    Oh, well, that sucks. I feared that I was too late to be part of the team considering the date of when you messaged the volunteers.

    Yea, since we're so close to show time now, we had to place the t-shirt order right away!

    But as I say, everyone's welcome to join in any capacity!

    Ironically as someone who was pushing this idea hard after last year (and I think many will benefit greatly from it), now that I know more people from the forum I'm in two minds whether it's necessary for me or not! Maybe there's scope for just sort of picking up a badge as a backup and using it if we struggle / feel a bit lonely?

    After talking to BronyCon who used badges this year; what I'm expecting is that a fair amount of people will grab a badge which they can use to tell people that they are interested in chatting with strangers or not. A decent number of those are probably likely not to be specifically interested in the club part of this; and would just like the badge to wear, as you are suggesting.

    The club will be running at a set meeting point, with scheduled meet up times during the day; and pinkies will be heading off to various events and activities with groups of people as they all decide between them that they want to. Anyone can join in, or not, as they so wish and as often, or not, as they wish. Even if they're not wearing a badge.

    Interested in this as I'm a bit of a Fluttershy, especially in larger crowds. :)

    Could be one for me too, this. I'm in slightly the same boat as @Cloudane in that this would have been a life-saver on the Saturday morning last year, but I know a few more people these days. I'm a little less of a 'Shy than I was a year ago, but when there are hundreds and hundreds of people around, it's still a very different proposition to a meet with a dozen people. Tbh the badge would be the big draw for me, as these days I'm happy to gabble on to anyone who talks to me, but I still often have trouble starting conversations with strangers.

    So cute X3

    And for those who aren't sure whether they're Fluttershy or Pinkie, just get 6 of them so it says "Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi!"

    Some say...
    That he's so miniature he needs a ladder to boop a filly
    And that he only sells his designer horses on the second Tuesday of the month

    All we know is he's called CaptainHoers!

    Those are so cute it's ridiculous. I have never been happier to be a Fluttershy! (And that's saying something. :p)
