...my premium membership will run out, so if you find this page suddenly empty and full of adverts everywhere (unless you're using AdBlock), that is why. It's also the reason why I disabled the CSS skin here.
Also, um, according to my internal stats, it seems that I have been losing some devwatchers here. Yes, I can easily guess why. It's because of my constant complaining of Rainbow Power. As I've said in an earlier journal, I've been ranting about it ever since we saw that shot of them in a toy store a year ago... Is it a case of me being asshurt because they chose to go with such underwhelming, yet overly girly designs and not something I've been trying to push over to Hasbro due to them taking numerous fan ideas beginning with the name of Derpy? Perhaps I am, admittedly. And honestly, I don't know who to blame: myself for not trying the hardest I could (because I have a really bad habit of procrastinating), or Hasbro for being a bit too safe and choosing their own designs, instead. I seriously don't know.
Either way, is it a case of me trying to reach an impossible goal as some may think? Not quite. Considering how much brony pandering there was with the season 4 finale by making the Twilight vs Tirek anime-like, not to mention the shoutout to Blackgryph0n's "-licious" series, and of course the return of Derpy after her absence in season 3, I don't think the show staff has turned their backs on us yet. They're definitely still watching us, and it is why I shall keep going. Whether you like it or not, I could honestly care less.
Another thing. The deviant that made the anti stamp on me, she seemed to think that bronies will eventually warm up to the Rainbow Power forms like we did with alicorn Twilight. Well, maybe when season 5 airs in the spring, they will... if the RP forms aren't, ugh, reduced to being another shoe-in for the Harmony Blaster again, that is. It could happen, and that'll make them further pointless as they are currently. Perhaps when RP starts acting like real super forms in terms of abilities as they should've been in the first place, then yes, maybe we will warm up to them. And then maybe I'll lift the ban on them on my Sonic-Rainboom
group. But as it stands now, I'm not exactly seeing such a warm embrace, and I'm not exactly seeing a sudden surge of artwork on them either. That's just the reality for now.
So, as much as I'd hate to say this, you have the right to unwatch me if you're against me on this. It's fine with me if you like such awful, gaudy, overcomplicated, pointless designs over a design that is simple and effective enough. Just don't force me to like them, or else you're no better than I was a few years ago.
To those who do support and agree with me, thank you for not getting annoyed over this past year.
So as I've said at the top of this, my sub/PM will run out next week. I will renew it as soon as I can.
That is all for now.
