You will never succeed. At anything. ESPECIALLY SOPIO.
Here we see a Wee Babby Al, who thinks he's hot stuff. What a joke he is.
Double-post for double-toast! Or something. I dunno. Just don't merge me pl0z, important NEB-news coming atcha!
So guys, I plan to be back in The Toon at the start of September, as I am moving in with Dan and I want to spend as much time as my tenancy will allow stroking his perfectly pensive face. As such, I plan to re-start the meets proper-like, after what would appear to be a rather poor summer showing from you losers. Seriously, Sean r disapoint.
So! If all goes as planned, we shall truly re-commence our destruction of Newcastle (and its environs) on the 6th September, with a Classic Saturday Meet! As always, keep up-to-date through this forum, the website, or our amazingly NSFW Skype group.
Oh yeah i'll be attending on Saturday.
Awesome! I shall see if Hubby can book the day off work so we may attend.
Yo yo yo peeps here's da haps
This Saturday (25th July) is the fabled 'Event Meet' that Sean's proper running rite gud. Basically, he's off to Cherricon (some weeaboo convention thing in Newcastle), and everyone else is welcome to go with him.
The planned apparent meeting point for this one is a bit different; it's the Gateshead Metro (specifically Wilkinsons), to be leaving at 8.30am. The location is apparently easy to reach, through THE MAGIC OF UNDERGROUND CHOO CHOO TRAINS. It's like, a couple of quid and about a five minute ride from Newcastle Central, might be more or less depending on which station you set off from.
Then you get to walk with Prince Sean to the convention, at which point you are free to pursue whatever avenue you desire! Stick close to your Prince, or explore for yourself, it's your call. Sean says he will be staying until like 5pm, so that should give you plenty of time to wander around and get into all kinds of spaghetti-flavoured trouble.
To be clear: this is a pretty unconventional meet. Bobdat and I will not be in attendance, so our pro brony wrangling skillz will be sorely missed. What's more, this will require you to ORGANISE YOURSELVES, in relation to finding your way to Gateshead Metro and making sure you're actually on time and stuff. If you ask Sean real nicely, maybe he'll actually help you out! You never know, stranger things have happened.
After 5, maybe some people will go to a pub or something, or maybe they won't. Who knows? Life is full of mysteries!
So in short: if you're wanting to go to the magical event meet that apparently is Cherricon, and you want to go with your favourite group of nerds, get to Wilko in Gateshead for 8.30am for an escort by your own Weeabo Prince. If you're wanting to go later/by yourself, that's fine, have fun. And if you're not interested in going to the convention at all... Well, go organise your own meets.
We firmly believe in the right to free speech and that you should be able to post whatever content you figure appropriate to your audience on your own website. That said, we do have rules in place regarding what is and isn't allowed to be posted on our site. The rule that we figure your website falls foul of is this:
After taking a close look at some of the content on your group's site, we have decided that it falls under "shocking or upsetting" as mentioned above.
This, combined with the size of your website, means that we won't be able to allow any links to the North East Bronies site from UKofE. We realise this might be disappointing, but we trust you realise are doing this to protect our members and to hold up our promise of being a family friendly community for our members.
Please remember that this decision has not been made as a result of any disagreement with any content, or on the grounds of any other personal conflict or vendetta.
Should the content on the North East Bronies website change and become appropriate for linking to from UKofE, please let us know and we'll be more than happy to review it!
- UKofE Staff Team
For clarification, due to this matter, the North East Bronies will shortly be moving to a new home. Efforts have been made with the staff team here on UKoE to resolve this but they have not been successful. Details of our discussion will be available shortly, but for the time being UKoE staff will be removing links to our website.
Please bear with us for the time being while we sort this out.
During this transition phase, I thought I'd best put a few guidelines out there, to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible, and that we don't create any more problems for the staff here. So, please:
>Do not link to YouTube, in case someone goes from your linked video to another and eventually stumbles upon a video containing a clip from the 'Pony.Mov' series, which may be shocking or upsetting.
>Do not link to anything you have done on DeviantArt, in case someone goes from that specific piece of artwork to your favourites, and then finds a piece of art which includes themes of violence or nudity, which may be shocking or upsetting.
>Do not link to Twitter, in case someone goes from a specific tweet you linked to maybe the account of the person who made the tweet, and then finds tweets from that individual which may be shocking or upsetting.
>Do not link to Google, because Google Images is notorious for containing images which may be shocking or upsetting.
>Basically just don't link to anywhere off-site, even if the page you directly link to contains no indecent content whatsoever, because it is possible that the people visiting this page may go from it to another one that they may find shocking or upsetting.
To be clear, this is not me deliberately attempting to be antagonistic. This is me interpreting the will of the staff here as best I can, and providing examples which seem to be comparable to the issue at hand here - that being that a website which has been directly linked to hosts inappropriate content on other pages which have not been linked to, and so it must be removed. Seriously, to avoid any further complications, please do not link to anything off-site if it has the potential to lead those who click the link to any other page which may contain content they would find shocking or upsetting.
But what if we link to a page on a site that hosts no other pages, would that be ok?
But what if someone leaves that site? They could find a sweary D:
good to see that the censorship rule is still causing no problems for people
I'm sorry, but I find the images in your signature to be shocking and upsetting, because I have suffered having my bottom looked at in a desirable fashion before, and the event left me scarred. As such, I am contacting the internet police, asking them to remove all traces of you from this website.
I must applaud your sensibility in this course of action. Congratulations.
I'm really just thinking of the safety of others, you know. It doesn't matter that very few people are likely to notice these images, or that even fewer will even care; what matters is that I am acting to ensure that the tiny percentage of individuals who may a) stumble upon such images in the depths of a signature of a user on certain threads on a forum and b) find them upsetting, do not ever face challenging material that may force them to suffer even the slightest discomfort, however brief.
Truly, I am the greatest hero the internet has ever known.
Shame about all this to be honest, but i do find it odd, i mean say i was too link my deviant art page, someone then clicked on users that i follow via that page, they then came into contact with something that upset them, am i to blame for this? or is deviant art for not having stricter controls? will this have some form of impact on my account here since i posted said link?
Don't get me wrong i understand where your coming from here, but if this truly is the case i can promise you it will be almost impossible to find something that wont in some way offend someone i mean eventually even the word bum will not be allowed i mean its bum we all have one its a childish word but at some point bum will offend someone and then all the bum's will need to be removed or changed
Take the Ugly Duckling
The story tells of a homely little bird born in a barnyard who suffers abuse from the others around him until, much to his delight (and to the surprise of others), he matures into a beautiful swan, the most beautiful bird of all
“Do not compare yourself to others. If you do so, you are insulting yourself.” A fitting way to sum up that story i think
Everyone is offended by something, so sod it all, we should just post blank messages.
BUT WAIT SOMEONE COULD BE TRAUMATISED BY THAT AAAAAHHHH!
yay! were moving... everyone in the camper van....
Blank messages suggest to me the futility of all actions, and how no matter how much we struggle, our entire existence will leave no mark upon the cold, uncaring vista of the universe.
This is a shocking and upsetting concept to me. Please remove your message suggesting the idea of a blank message.
Your commas offend me as one of my family members suffers from a speech impediment. Kindly remove them from your post.
