So I had this idea... The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy (Element of Self-descriptive Usernames) 13600

I've been thinking about ways to get our name out and hopefully attract some new blood, and it occurred to me that we could make a digital "press package". Which I see as a concise explanation of who we are, our history and what we do. Hopefully if we send this to people who write about cartoons or internet culture they'll write about the site or ask us about things and quote us and that will draw some of their readers to check out the site.

I originally got this idea reading an article about the new EqG movie. (wish I had the URL) in which the author included a few quotations from "Sethiso; administrator of the fan site equestria daily". Seth was acting as a community insider regarding the fandom's negative reaction to the first film.

My immediate reaction was "god dammit seth, stop talking out of your ass" but after that I thought "why couldn't we do that?"
to clarify I mean getting asked about things, not talking out of our asses


ITT: we discuss whether this is a good idea and what the best way to go about it.

While I think it could be beneficial, we'd need to come together to corroborate on how we'd present ourselves. Is that what you're asking?

Or are you asking if it'd be a good idea to do more PR? Or is it both?

What's wrong about getting more posters and gaining speed?

If you have a legitimate site issue, please provide some kind of context, frame of reference, or actual indication of what your issue is… like, at all.

Otherwise….

Actually we never really got into the OP topic.
Let's try to do that.

Otherwise what? Who the fuck are you? Nobody, that's who. You don't get to give orders. You wanted one shitposter named, you're one.

Oh, you wanted someone other than yourself? Fine, let's start with the cause of this complaint as an example:
