I'm more bothered by their removing most of the derped eyes. Instead of her coming across as silly, she just seems clumsy, and now I feel bad for her and am not amused.

The voice is fine, however.

A lot of fans are overreacting at best, It's not like they're not going to derp her eyes for future episodes, one of the animators says that she's fine in that respect. Just when I thought I seen the worse of this shit in other fandoms(Star Wars in particular), this comes along.

I'm perturbed, but I appreciate EQDaily is trying to keep things sane. But the rants... Oh, sweet Celestia, the rants.

This is why we can't have nice things.

/facepalm

They seriously did that?

I mean, the series isn't "ruined forever" by it, but...

Ugh.  Damn whiners can't leave well enough alone :-/

Eh, my only real complaint is the name issue. "Derpy" isn't some word that calls out a specific group of people or anything. I think the voice is fine, and don't even mind if her eyes aren't crossed in every single scene. She's just a clumsy pony that is highly prone to mishaps. I just don't see they felt the need to edit out her name when her name isn't offensive.

Though, I suppose I could also complain that I haven't gotten more fic suggestions... I really won't wanna wade through a mountain of clopfics and garbage to find the ones worth reading...

I'm mostly irked over the fact Hasbro caved at all, while everypony else was going "We like this portrayal of Derpy, even if Tabitha St. Germaine kinda messed up the voice, but that's okay."

This really is why we can't have nice things... maybe this upcoming episode with Fluttershy will help.  Especially if they get R. Lee Ermey to do Iron Will's voice.  Or, failing that, The Rock.

I just don't understand what went wrong ...with Derpy's original portrayal.

Dude, spoilers!  I mean, I've read the synopsis at this point thanks to My Little Brony and their lack of spoilers on the stream of pictures.  Still, you could use spoiler tags.

I blame/credit The Doctor with inspiring my name change.

Er, what spoilers? That's just the fandom's personal desire, that's all. O.o

Just Saw H&H.

And now I know it was possible for a love potion to have been responsible for the reign of Discord.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

I keep forgetting not everypony frequents EqD (or in my case, has it as their home page).  We hear about upcoming episodes... usually two, three weeks in advance.  We have another Fluttershy episode coming up, a Spike-centric episode (with world-building!) ... Hasbro loves us.

I don't really spend a lot of time on the site, mostly because the format makes navigating it rather painful. They really should work on that.

We don't have any choice, Yae.  That's Blogger's formatting, and the best we can do.
