It feels like this fandom gets a little more dead each day. I want to do something to help fix this but I have no idea what. Nobody seems to want to discuss fanmade content unless they're tearing it down or they're sucking it off for being written in year 1 of the fandom when everyone was too young to have standards.

It's inevitable. Enjoy the corpse before it gets cold.

I've been thinking of the same thing. My conclusion is that making content might not be enough, but making something that content can be made from would help the fandom immensely.

Something like a comic creator that people could use without drawing skills would take some time to make, but provide effort-free means of creating content for those who either can't draw or don't want to spend time on it. The Pony Comic Generator shows how much content comes out of even a completely random program, so a tool fans could use to deliberately create comics would definitely help a lot.

The alternate setting at >>1271 would provide something new to discuss and draw from when it gets fleshed out enough, and it's ever so slowly being worked on by each CYOA like >>349 and it's finished predecessor at https://archive.fo/Bjhr9 .

My lifelong dream has been to make a virtual sandbox where pony bots live autonomously for players to mess with, but my object blindness has made programming it alone impossible. A virtual toy like that would be a good source of procedural content, whether for recordings or just greentext stories of interesting things happening in it. New people would be more likely to join this project once the project was underway, but since I'd need help to get started the project is stuck at a catch-22.

A virtual sandbox sounds like a good idea. My dream has always been to make a pony video game, a 3d collectathon.
I had this fantasy where I'd make friends and wow everyone with my great ideas, then I'd have help making this from people in the fandom who step forward to help me, then the fandom would pay us to make this.

Guaranteed that at least 80% of the content in the MLP fandom you watch/read is fan-based. That shit's not going away after the last episode.

The audience is going and I hate it. Everyone wants to doomfag about the end of the world while shouting down complaining creators, driving creators over to more lively and appreciative fandoms.

I doubt this fandom is gonna disappear just because the show’s ending. I’m pretty sure a decent number of current fans haven’t even kept up with the show for a while anyway. If anything people will stick around to see what G5 is like, but there’s always gonna be fan content of some kind.

I'm still making fan content, but where's the audience for fan content? Have people forgotten how to share videos/fanfics they like on other websites?

 No.2117
