On the "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" thread in the "Entertainment, Inc." section, on the first page, there are posts made by a bunch of sockpuppet accounts imitating the ponies! I laughed when I first saw them, but that was before I became a fan of the show (I was on the thread to see bronies in their natural habitat).
Now that I am a fan, I decided to do some experiments. I looked at the "current time" stat on all of their profiles. Not surprisingly, they all had the same time displayed (go ahead, look at it yourself). I took the time it was at my house, synchronized our globe to that time using that little metal disc that's on the top of any self-respecting globe, and saw where these accounts came from.
Well, some of the major cities that fall on that line include Victoria, Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Salem, Sacremento, Eureka, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles (sort of), and that's about it. But most importantly, Vancouver falls on that line as well. I'm not sure, but I think The Hub's animation studio is in Vancouver (any corrections [along with citations] would be greatly appreciated).
So, if I am correct about The Hub's animation studio being in Vancouver (or some other city on that line), I would have reason to suspect that we actually got trolled by The Hub!
It is very unlikely, but a brony can dream, can't he? Besides, how cool would that be if it was true? At least I researched it a bit before rushing to conclusions. :P
I also looked at their profiles. Of course, not much was happening on any of them, but they were better than most sockpuppet accounts. Their profiles had customized colors (something even I haven't gotten around to doing yet), they were all friends with each other, and they were all members of this group called "Ponyland", or something like that. I'll look into that more later.
One little thing I found amusing was that on Scootaloo's profile (funny that Scootaloo has never posted once, to my knowledge), Rainbow Dash sent her a Visitor Message. It read something like, "Hey Scoots, going flying tomorrow. Whaddya say?", or something along those lines. I thought that was amusing.
I think I'll send Fluttershy a friend request and see what happens. Probably nothing, but it wouldn't hurt to try. :P
