It's been about 8 months since this was updated and with season 5 over I think it's about time for another of these to be made.
So lets see whats changed in the past 8 months and where the new season will fit into the rankings now that it's had roughly two weeks to settle.

Just to note. This survey assumes you've at least seen all the episodes, so feel free to make a list if you haven't seen them all and want to see how yours turns out. It just won't be included.

1) Use the episode sorter and post the results as text. I won’t bother with adding your results manually if you post them as a picture.
Please try to avoid the I like both and No opinion options for more accurate results.
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/77412572/Post_S5_Episode_Ranking_Sorter.html
2) Age, gender.
3) When did you become involved in the fandom?
4) Rate the quality of the show [1 to 10].
5) How optimistic are you about the future of the show? [1-very pessimistic to 10-very optimistic]

I'll run this for a month from the original thread, which is around 2 weeks from now, so if you want to rewatch anything to make as accurate a list as possible then feel free.

I'll dump the older episode charts here too for reference.

Feel free to discuss the seasons and movies in general as well if you'd like.

>>25893323
It is a tough problem. I'd rather the episodes be ranked based on our subjective experience than objective quality, so I do consider that anon's list to be valid. On the other hand, I gather we're trying to collect the average opinions of /mlp/ as a whole and including someone who's such a clear outlier when we don't really have that many anons to balance it out would seriously skew the results. On the other hand, pretty much everyone who's posted seems to have some controversial opinions so where do we draw the line?
>>
>>25894487
I'd honestly only draw the line at obvious trolls that like, rank everything in a certain season at the bottom without fail.

I mean, I've seen Secret of My Excess in the bottom five for some people and it is my favorite episode. Is that going to skew results? Probably. But it accurately shows opinion.
>>
>>25894487
That's why I said feeling like no instead of just no. /mlp/ has a ton of opinions in it going strongly both ways, and to put one aside because it's not agreeing with my opinions or others doesn't feel right. I think he did put the effort in.

>>25894512
His stuff in the bottom was mixed well enough. Obvious bait to me would be someone who doesn't even try and order the bottom part. Which would be done by someone who didn't see all of it or someone fishing for replies.
>>
>>25894487
At first I was agreeing with not putting his list in, but if he actually watched the episodes and listed them fairly, I don't see why not. No one would throw a fit if someone put all the movies at the very bottom of their list. Everyone's already called him a fucking faggot for his shit opinions, but we're really only compiling lists of all our shit opinions anyway.

>My Little Pony episode sorter. Choose your favorite episode out of the two shown to get a list of your favorite episodes as calculated by this episode sorter.
The whole shebang is about choosing what you like most, not trying to somewhat objectively judge each and every episode. Not liking anything past MMC might be a shit opinion and you can disagree as much as you want, but it is an opinion anyways. The guy did see all the episodes, his onions are valid. Compare it to that one guy who just went no opinion on the episodes and had half of them in 65th place or so.
So yeah imo we should count it.
>>
I'm going to leave that guy's list in. I just can't justify leaving someone out cause they like the show differently than we do. As long as there's effort and reasoning behind a list and they've seen all the pony I'll allow it. That's the criteria I set for myself before starting anyway. I'll still take out really obvious bait though.
>>
>>25895362
Well, we seem to have a strong S1 bias anyway. It's not as if that's going to change anything.
>>
>>25895362
Statistically speaking though, you could remove the outlier lists to get a more general representative chart. Depends on what you want for the chart though, either an average of all anons or a general "standard" rating list

>>25894542
>>25895362

>>25893115
There is no effort in the later three seasons though. We judge each episode on an individual basis, he is simply throwing entire seasons underneath other seasons because he felt differently when they aired. That skews the entire ranking and it does not because the person genuinely feels each episode is worse, but because of unwillingness to budge in actually evaluating them.

This will be my last comment on the matter, I simply want to reiterate it because people are acting like his survey is equivalent to others when it isn't in the slightest. He is comparing one season to another, not one episode to another, and that is not at all what most other people are doing.

Of course, it'd only be fair considering you included my list and I put one of the EqG movies dangerously close to the number one spot after all. :^)

Do you still have the data for older surveys like >>25894467?

The mediafire link last thread only had PreS5 and PostS4. That was what I asked for, but it is not a very long timespan to look at change of opinions. The only new thing in between the two is Friendship Games.
>>
>>25898995
Those were done by some people on a different forum unfortunately. I could go through the archive and try and recreate the data sets for those two as well though. Shouldn't be too hard since I already have the sorting down. I'll get to it after I get out of work this morning.
>>
>>25898995
>>25899009
Work is pretty dead actually, so I was able to start on it. I may have to do some trial and error if you want a replica of the data set that made the two charts up there though.
Just copying and pasting all the lists that didn't look like they were baiting or not trying got me 111 for the first one which is 7 more than the picture has.
>>
>>25895362
Still agree with this >>25896542, however if you're willing we could also do this >>25896211 as some backup
>>
>>25896542
>>25899605
It seemed like he ordered the episodes within the lower seasons though. That's part of what made me want to keep it in over not. Sure there's still the 2 seasons above all the others, but the effort was made in each part otherwise.
>>
>>25899621
How's that effort? Give me some random list in which I need to mix some while keeping most of the order of each season/blocks etc. That's not hard to do at all. Everyone here has some preferences with choosing which season is the best (and this time around it seems S1) but at least there is some fair judgement comparing each episode lose from seasons. This is a guy who lost the magic but is still all about 'the ride never ends', blindly choosing through seasons and not considering 'what if episode x aired a few years earlier or episode y a few years later? Would I still like or dislike it?'.

It seems like he watched all the episodes by the way the mix of season 4 and 5 are ranked. A lot of them seem sensibly ordered out of those to me if you take into account the anti Twilicorn bias he appears to have. Meaning he had to put in the effort to ensure it turned out that way. Whether it's hard or not isn't as relevant to me as the fact that the effort was put forward to give a genuine opinion. If I'm looking to make a representative survey of the episode ranking on /mlp/ then that kind of opinion should be a part of it cause there's Anons on /mlp/ that genuinely hold to that opinion. I don't agree with him at all on it, but that doesn't mean he should have less of a right to voice his opinion.
Sorry if I was slow to reply. I got caught up at work.
>>
Alright, I'm fed up with the butthurt in this thread just because someone voiced an opinion you don't like. The guy who did the list does prefer the first two seasons over the others, big fucking deal. He still watched them all and sorted them properly. If it doesn't enforce your anti-nostalgia movement then tough fucking luck, the survey is about what episodes /mlp/ likes the most and if you can't deal with the fact that 1 in 50 anons here might be a faustfag so much that you want to disregard his opinion then you should reconsider going back to your local circlejerk that raised you.
You are free to disagree that just because there isn't that x01 or x02 doesn't make the episode worse than if it was there, but seriously trying to push for removing the vote is pathetic. And yes, no fucking shit Sherlock, with a clear goal in mind you can easily rig yourself the outcome however you want it. You can even skip the sorter and just write it yourself. That doesn't mean opinions you don't like are fake or took little effort to create.
I'm on mobile so I can't quote the posts, sorry for that.
>>
>>25900641
That's pretty much what I was getting at without being as blunt.
I do appreciate people caring enough to really scrutinize the lists that are posted though. The discussion on what people like and dislike is normally the best part of waiting for the lists to come in.

It is when I'm replying to multiple people across the thread so I have to scroll up and down as I'm writing the post and it's just too much hassle. Of course if I'm just replying to the last post it's not really that much of a problem.

>>25899621
>"I can't say my list is devoid of subjectivity but I can still give reason to why I list certain episodes ahead of or below others, for him, it's purely "Its not S1/S2"

That is all I wanted clarity on and not a single person has managed to argue that point, at least in a way I find satisfactory. I do not see the list as genuine because I do not believe he could compare each individual episode from 3,4,5 and explain why HE finds them worse than S1/2. I do not mind if the reasons are personal I just do not believe that he could actually do so. Everyone else (I assume), even if they preferred earlier seasons, compared each individual episode in making their list. To me, it seems he just looked at the season for a large number of his choices and that is not what the rest of the information is based on.

If he wants s1/s2 to be on the top? Swell. I just want some reason to believe that he actually preferred all those episodes and did not merely look at the show on a season by season basis.
>>
>>25900952
Thank you! You are much better at phrasing the problem than I did here: >>25899823
>>
>>25900952
Ranking an episode lower just because it's not s1 or s2 is shallow, but I don't agree that the list is not genuine just because the one doing it has a bias. You can challenge his opinion, but the list is accurate to how he feels and likes the show, and therefore is valid.
>>
>>25901027
I could care less about bias, everyone has it. I just have a hard time believing he truly feels every episode is inferior to 1/2. Could he really feel that way? Sure. I'm just being selfish in wanting someone to articulate why that's likely to be the case when I still see it being more likely that he merely did not wish to rationalize it and instead chose the easier route of saying "well, I liked s1, I'll just put all those episodes on the top"

To be clear, if he put all of season 4 and 5 on the top, I'd still be skeptical of whether he truly evaluated the episodes. I just have trouble wrapping my head around it. He clearly put effort into evaluating episodes 53-117, and episodes 1-52, but I can't tell for sure that he actually compared those two to each other.

A proper nostalgia fag would pinpoint the moment in the episode it happened in because this is only S2. Or are we counting only S1?

Perhaps. An average nostalgia fag howver, would not have re watched either season 1 or season 2 for months and is likely to have very vague memories of the episodes they fervently uphold.

I have both of them done in some form. I just need to know.
Do you want the data to make an exact copy of the results in the above charts up there? Or do you want me to take out stuff like people who have a 15 way tie for 1st? Cause it's the difference of 5 or 6 lists and things moving a rank up or down between the two options there, and I can't be sure what the guy running the first two of these took out without some trial and error.
>>
>>25914621
Lets see some hot opinions. I know you lurkers want the world to know why you think Princess Spike is the best episode by far.
>>
>>25916019
I liked it okay before I realized the huge plot hole that Spike is supposed to be a hero in the Crystal Empire who everybody respects. That kind of killed it for me.
>>
>>25916277
That alone basically made it the worst episode in the series because the episode becomes impossible to believe after you realize that fact.

>Baby Cakes 5th from last
Never noticed Baby Cakes was that low. Guess it's just so mediocre that it fell down there. That or maybe people hate the cake twins.
>>
>>25915040

Give me everything. I can always filter the data later if I want to.

>>25920751
Princess Spike is just legendarily terrible. I could go on for a long time why the episode is fundamentally flawed but I won't. It however is unique because I firmly believe it is one of the episodes that could not be salvaged at all. Literally everything about it isn't a good idea and shows that there was little thought given to continuity.

Equestria Games was robbed, though. That's a great Spike episode all things considered, and that's shit people want.
>>
>>25920843
Sounds good just give me a bit longer to be sure I have everything then. I'll just not include the really ridiculous ones like each season tied for it's own place, or all of them tied for first.
>>
>>25920900
>Equestria Games was robbed, though. That's a great Spike episode all things considered, and that's shit people want.
I kind of feel the same for Just for Sidekicks. Spike had some good stuff there I think. Equestria Games cringy Spike and the wasted potential of ponies playing sports not being showed as much probably stung that episode to death for most.
>>
>>25920751

The distaste for Baby Cakes is mostly that men can't relate to a babysitting episode. That, and it makes the audience feel bad to see a character fail so completely.
>>
>>25920927
Taken as a whole and everything that happened in the episode it not only was a great Spike episode, but also one of the best morals in the entire series.

It is criminally underrated and honestly I see it being ranked so low as proof the fandom just plain doesn't like Spike as a whole for the most part and that nothing will be good enough for them.

Coincidentally, Just for Sidekicks and Equestria Games in addition to a few other episodes provide context for why Princess Spike was so universally disliked.
>>
>>25921056
Does the fandom even know what they want for Spike at this point?
>>
>>25921116
Letting him grow up a little might be nice. Sort of an equivalent of the CMC finally getting their godawful marks maybe?
>>
>>25921116
Probably close to >>25921153 but I imagine even less controversial. Hilariously when Reddit did this survey they found that the character with the least liked episodes was Apple Bloom, as Spike had a few episodes rated at or above middling while she had none.

But as of right now I don't think the fandom does. Personally I just would be fine with any sort of screen time that isn't him being an idiot. He was barely even around in S5 in many episodes, only had one very bad episode that did nothing for him to himself, and did very little in most of the season. It's very sad.
>>
>>25921153
I'm curious what roles are available for him to grow into, but I'm even more curious how Twilight would fare without Spike for a while. She'd probably do a bit better than in OWTEW now that she has two wings full of quills, but surely she'd have some difficulty after a while if he had to leave for something, right?
>>
>>25921205
I really want a Spike story that is just about Spike for once. For fucks sakes new characters that are introduced in one or two episodes get more explanations and motivations for things than he does. And let's not even mention that he's the only member of the main cast of characters that has never had a song.

Making him grow up a bit and realize his place might be a good thing. I remember Jim Miller said he had ideas about him growing up and dealing with teenage problems. Might be good but don't know if it's coming with S6 or what, hard to read Miller sometimes.

But fear God, please do not let Neal Dusedau touch his episodes again. Honestly, don't let him write at all for this show. Both of his episodes are definitely in my bottom three, and I'm a very lenient person that sometimes makes a lot of excuses for the show. But his episodes are garbage.

>twilight is known to not show up to friends' events
>moon dancer is hurt by twilight not showing up
>she only invited 4 people to her party
>devastated by twilight not showing up
Hold up. You mean to tell me a friend that is not known to show up to friends' events doesn't show up and you're so upset you hold a grudge for years and you disowned the other friends who still liked you and wanted to hang out with you. And you became a hermit all because that one friend didn't show up to your party. Really? 10/10 writing, truly just a masterpiece. You've really outdone yourself.

I can see it if she put all her stock into Twilight and had unrealistic expectations as a result, but if you don't like her character or that reasoning then I can see why that would destroy the episode for you.

As someone who had a bunch of friends but only REALLY cared about one, and then he moved away... I don't think Moondancer's backstory is unreasonable at all.

I think the episode was rather good, but Moondancer basically was mad that an NYC firefighter didn't show up to her birthday party on 9/11.

Twilight had a legitimate reason not to be at the party that Moondancer for no reason decided to be make or break for her having friends, even if her other friends would still be there for her.
>>
>>25923373
>I think the episode was rather good, but Moondancer basically was mad that an NYC firefighter didn't show up to her birthday party on 9/11.
Yeah, except in that case the firefighter could have prevented 9/11 or at least saved many more lives if he had made some friends. Don't forget that she defeated Nightmare Moon due to the power of friendship.

>S5 was catching up again, until assblasted nostalgiafag put his shitty list up here

>>25923663
Season 5 would still be 64 points behind season 2 on average without that list. That guy's chart pretty much doubled the gap compared to if he had not participated, but if he's truly an outlier then more lists will put the averages closer to the actual opinion.
>>
>>25924511
Recently S5 was only about 40 points behind, so that's what I meant with catching up. But you're right, I suppose his won't matter anymore with a few more lists (if more anons will participate that is).
>>
>>25924789
I'm not too worried. There's still another two weeks to go anyway. Anons are out on holiday still, so I know it's going to be slow going. Plus there's a few I know are taking their time doing this.

Maybe I missed a point or maybe it was a plot hole, but it's still weird about Moon Dancer. The fate of Equestria depended on Twilight making friends, but not her.
>>
>>25926053
>>25923434
If Twilight stayed in Canterlot playing pin the tail on the pony with Moondancer, everyone in Equestria would be under the hoof of Nightmare Moon. Moondancer was not an element. Just leaving her was not nice, but it was entirely necessary that Twilight move to Ponyville if Equestria was to continue existing.

To be honest I don't care if the boys gay, what I'm scared of is the fact that this person is not going to deal with the fact that their little brother had sex. Also that this person is proud the boy was gay, as though he'd be disappointed if he was straight.

Probably a big factor is that I was never really that adverse to Twilicorn in the first place. I would have preferred she had stayed a unicorn, but her gaining wings and becoming princess didn't necessarily clash with my perception of where I wanted her character to go. Not the biggest fan of how they handled it afterwards, but I don't see it as a mark against the episode itself.

As for the episode itself it's basically two things - The songs and the Emooooootiooooons
>>
>>25938507
>>25940664
>The songs
I'm a sucker for musical episodes and all the songs are catchy as fuck and some of the best of the series, with Celestia's Ballad being my absolute favorite song of the entire series.

>The Emooooootiooooons
Out of all the crazy, finale scenarios in the show, I feel the most invested in this one's purely about emotional stakes. RoH goes along simliar lines in that the Mane 6 lose their true selves and they have to regain it, but it's against the backdrop of a world-ending disaster. That's not a knock on RoH, I just really like that in MMC we don't worry about the Mane 6 returning to themselves because of external reasons related to saving the world, but solely because we really care for these characters.
It's sad when they're all out of their element. It's heartbreaking when Twilight realizes the full extent of what she did. So when things start to turn around, it's even more impactful. The happy, bright moments becomes even more happy and bright. Every single time A True, True Friend plays I can't help but smile like a motherfucker. And when Twilight is teleported to that Ether place, it's truly fucking magical. To see Celestia walk with Twilight and sing about how proud she is of her while showing everything that's happened really tugs on my heart. It's just fucking transcendental. Like damn, at the time I had been following these characters and the fandom for over a year and a half and to see all those moments pass by it's just like - Damn, I don't even know.

That's not to say the episode is perfect. There definitely are issues with bits of dialogue, the pacing, and pieces of the plot, but the whole experience is so overwhelming it overshadows the flaws for me.

It's not that the list takes that long as it is it takes me way too long to make a list. Sometimes it's really hard to choose an episode over the other and it just takes me forever to choose. I'll change/add certain criteria for episode match-ups and then drop them for others. It doesn't help I haven't seen a lot of episodes recently. I tried to binge watch the entire series, but it's been really busy for the past month and I won't have internet for 2 weeks so I had to make a list now. It's fine though, the list I made gives an adequate idea of my rankings. The stuff I don't quite agree with is still close enough to the general position I would ideally put them in.

As a math major, I have to voice my appreciation for the https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/77412572/Post_S5_Episode_Ranking_Sorter.html

It is clearly following the efficient merge-sort algorithm for ranking and saves me a lot of effort doing the same thing by hand. I would have preferred it shuffle the episodes ahead of time though so as to reduce risk of placing two-parters next to one another just because (even though thats likely where they would have ended up anyways).

I'll have my two-bits to put in later tonight.

Kinda relevant. But not for OP

>>25946690
There's actually another version of the sorter that does shuffle it at the start:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/77412572/Post_S5_Episode_Ranking_Sorter_shuffle.html

I'm very thankful to the guy that made the initial sorter for the characters that were swapped out for episodes for this, and even more so for the kind Anons that helped modify the sorter for me over the last three times I did this. I don't have any idea how to code for html or java outside of adding items to the array, so I have to rely on help from them to make the sorting easier.
I left the randomized one out partially because I wanted everyone to use the same sorter, but I think it helps to sort inside a season first before having to compare everything in the series. Also I may have forgotten that modified sorter was there until you mentioned it. I could link it as an option from the initial sorter if Anons want a randomized start.

>>25943393
>>25945588
It's the 11th, but I'll play it by ear to see how many Anons are still working on lists to make sure I don't cut someone out that was almost done. I'll likely give a day or two extra at most.

Trends to >>25947562 with 57 Anons so far.
>>
>>25947562
>>25947584

I'm rather happy looking back on my list and seeing just how few episodes I actually dislike. I had to go way down the list, and even then I still enjoy them.

Two standout episodes for me over the past few months were related to real life events that I was going through, but even those got pushed near the middle of the list.

Tanks for the memories for when my dog died, The one where Pinkie Pie Knows for when I found out my sister is pregnant. Both came not too soon before each event happened. Now we'll have to see when Cadence gives birth if it will be near in time to my sister.
>>
>>25947684
There's still stuff I enjoy in the episodes I like least. Like Twilight being adorable while she's sleepy in Princess Spike, or the main 6 interaction in SAYS. It's too bad the main parts of those irk me so much.
>>
>>25947707
This so much. Those two are at the bottom of my list too (and Appleloosa's Most Wanted), but even in these least likable episodes there's something I enjoy about them.
>>
>>25947707
Too bad all the ponies wanting Twilight makes no sense to begin with.
>>
>>25947989
She probably met with all of them beforehand to come up with the plans or arrange for plans to be made. Plus the other princesses probably just referred them all to her once they realized she was planning it all herself.
>>
>>25948004
No, it was shown before how outside of Ponyville she basically had no power.

Not only that, but Spike had just saved the fucking Olympics and was her personal assistant. It was completely illogical that he needed any sort of her "title."

Did the writers forget Spike's own title and how he's more respected in the Crystal Empire than Cadance herself?
>>
>>25948061
>No, it was shown before how outside of Ponyville she basically had no power.
In that episode? I may have to watch it a third time if that's the case since things may be foggy for me. I thought she had planned all of it, so regardless of power they looked to her cause she was the one coordinating all of it.

Writer's seem to forget about Spike's progress a lot.
>>
>>25948091
I was talking about how she couldn't even get a fucking taxi in Manehattan by pulling the royalty card. It was extra weird when it was the Manehattan delegate who wanted her so much.

The biggest "fuck you" to Spike's development was a crystal pony fucking joining in that mob. If anything the crystal pony would have convinced the rest of them to listen to Spike.
>>
>>25948134
Season 4 had Twilight in the weird limbo between being a "princess" and trying to keep her normal. One one hand we have stuff like that, on the other we have Trade Ya! with her in a position of power.
At least season 5 has her concrete in the princess spot now.
>>
>>25948219
Regardless the episode is the series' worst because its basic idea doesn't really work. Here's how the idea should have gone:

>"What if we have an episode where Spike takes advantage of Twilight's title to get ponies to do things?"

>"But Spike already has his own title and has earned the respect of ponies on his own several times, he doesn't need Twilight's name for anything."

>"Oh, right. Throw that one out."
>>
>>25948242
I'm not arguing that. The episode is at the bottom for me below EqG even. I do wonder what it would take to get a really good Spike episode.
Just for Sidekicks seems like the best solo effort for him so far.
>>
>>25948389
I've been toying with this idea that involves him growing up, but I worry it would mix in too much shit that should be separate.

I wanted to have an episode where he meets Garble again and he's "redeemed." But that would have to be separate from another episode where he comes to terms with being a dragon and grows physically.

An episode that highlights what he's best at, sticking his neck out for others simply because he feels it's the right thing to do. He can be the support for another character while still being the main focus of the episode. He's great at knowing what needs to be done and understanding why a conflict has arisen, if they acknowledge that in an episode but have that utilized in a way that teaches Spike something, they'd have a fabulous episode. Instead, they just dismiss that he's often the only sane one in the group and paint him as a stupid kid in his solo episodes.

The beginning and end of Secret of my Excess, and much of Dog and Pony Show is what a good Spike episode would like, all that needs to be done is tie the 'lesson' back into him.
>>
>>25948464
I'd settle for an episode where Spike solves a problem he does not cause to begin with.

Their overall trend line slopes up and the the top 3 seasons for them are a flip of ours.
Also compared to our data right now Spike is liked ~10% more here with him getting 4.02% of the points on /r/mylittlepony compared to 4.39% here.

She is ranked behind Dash. However in their original rankings, the ones they published a few days ago here: https://www.reddit.com/r/mylittlepony/comments/3xvrkb/official_rmylittlepony_episode_survey_results/

Rarity is number 2. Since these are the original results AND in the post they affirm she is supposed to be in second place I think they got mislabeled the second time.

Rarity should be in second. I hope that isn't retardedly confusing

I think I may have an idea as to why those are different. I never verified with the guy that ran the survey exactly what his central characters were for each episode and just went off the comments in his planning thread on /r/mylittlepony.
I just have to redo that and then it should match up more closely unless there's a difference with the percentages compared to points.

Redoing it with the characters per episode from the list in the Google doc linked in the Reddit post only changed around Applejack and the CMC's ranking. Rarity and all the other ponies stayed the same. I'm curious where the breakdown is now.

I'm damn lazy, but if you can keep it up till the weekend I'll do it.

I'm going till the 11th, potentially plus a day or two given people still doing lists, so you can take your time.

Now I'm mad. Rarity gets her victory snatched from her.

...You know, there really isnt a good reason why Sonic Rainboom isn't considered a Raridash episode...
>>
>>25960833
Man they've got really shit taste.

>>25962621
Imagine being a fucking Spikefag, family.
>>
>>25962678
here's the thing. Everyone feels bad for Spike.

When Rarity's episodes are better than everyone else's (sans Twilight), it's "oh she's so underrated, she's come into her own, blah blah"

When they aren't it justifies her lower popularity. And if she isn't first there is an excuse to ignore her.

ALL MUST BELONG TO HER!
>>
>>25962740
I don't see these magical "bad" Rarity episodes all these Rarifags fuss about. They get nothing but gold but always complain.

And if people really felt similar ways about things and actually liked Spike, Rainbow Dash episodes would be dreaded as much as Spike ones. She has just as shitty of a track record in terms of infamous bad episodes.

This is the list again from that post in case anyone is curious and doesn't want to follow the links.
Also Twilight would remain in 4th with 888 points if you take out the two parters.

I double checked the process afterwards to make sure the numbers from the original data sheet to the charts were still accurate and nothing changed, so I can only guess that something was wrong with the other charts somehow.

Okay, so I'm about half way through watching the show in reverse and I have to ask: What sort of emergencies involve edible boots?

Also Twilight looks naked without wings.
>>
>>25969850
Some kind of party probably requested it and Pinkie couldn't provide it, so it became an emergency.
Twilight does look different without those wings for sure. She's shorter pre MMC too.

Think you'll be able to plow through the rest of the series in the 9 or so days you have left?

Bump with the ranking chart to >>25970170 with 58 Anons so far.
>>
>>25972270
>>25973204
Have you been keeping track of how many anons you've been getting per day? Think we'll outnumber the pre S5 rankings?
>>
>>25971794
>>
>>25973764
It's hard to tell how many we'll end up with at the end with how long I'm doing it for. I could figure out the per day stat if I dived through the archive, but I'm hoping for a slight surge near the end if Anons have just been rewatching the series before doing this.
>>
>>25973764
>>
>>25974808
58 anons over 20 ish-days. 2.5-3 anons per day.

10-ish days left. 25-30 more anons, for a total of about 85-90 anons. Smaller than previous thread series.

Although it is clearly not actually getting 2+ anons per day anymore.

Also, _______bump______
>>
>>25976035
I'm not sure how much more I or the Anon helping me with the sorter can do to make it easier or more enticing for people to do these. I said it last thread I think, but as the seasons get added in it gets tougher to get a whole lot of people to go through with making a list cause of how long it takes.
>>
>>25976236
This sorter is extremely efficient, hyperbolic even. I can't imagine a better way, especially because one of the things about this is changing opinions over time and it was done this way previously. If it weren't specifically for /mlp/ I would want to post it on /r/samplesize or something.

Yeah, the time consumption sucks (It's why it took me so long both of the other times)
>>
>>25976286
I've considered trying this survey for different websites to see the difference, but I'm not sure how well it would work out given the different formats and visibility something like this would have. Plus /r/mylittlepony already had one, so I feel like I'd be stomping on that ground.

it's got spike being an ass and overreacting for no reason instead of simply voicing his concerns
>>
>>25941456
If you're the anon that made the site, something that would have saved me a lot of time is that I often forget episode titles and I had to check the wiki a lot.

If you could show a picture or a one line summary of both episode it would help tremendously.
>>
>>25978588
checked

and seconding this. adding in even the single title picture they use on the wiki for each ep would be great
>>
>>25978588
>>25978665
Kinda like one of these ideas (other would be to the right/left of the button, but I'd have to go read up on html tables for that)?
>>
>>25979144
Yes please!
Except, you know, make the pic actually match the title...
>>
>>25979149
It's called "visual aid". I just need to know how it's supposed to look like. So, would you prefer the image on the button or below it?
>>
>>25979173
Well, having it on the button makes it bigger, and bigger is better I suppose.
>>
>>25979173
nice!

i like it big on the button, that one looks great
>>
>>25979180
>implying the size can't be adjusted
The movies would fit better though.
>>
Now if I only knew how to modify the script so it makes these show up...

I can't into javascript.
>>
>>25979392
the code already changes the 'episode info' link for the episodes you're ranking, so i guess use the same method but instead of sourcing the link you just pull the image from the same section of the wiki pages' code

i have no idea how java works either

barring that, go save all the images one by one and have the program source them manually
>>
>>25979392
I can /g/, link me to the code and I'll fix it for you if you want.

Meh. It wasn't amazingly received at any time, hell a lot of people complain about it both when it came out and going forward. It's probably my least favorite* opener with only the opener to the season fourth giving me room to debate

Ranking table to >>25979615 with 60 Anons so far.
CotLM dropped out of the top 5 to 7th and season 2's closing the gap on 1.

Also that visual aid thing is a nice idea.
I welcome any kind of help like that as long as it doesn't mess with the list it spits out at the end or the sorting to get there. I don't have much /g/ in me so assistance with the sorter's code is appreciated greatly.

Is this really fucking necessary? If you're going to do this, you should really choose an easily identifiable screenshot from that episode so that even those faggots who haven't watched the episode in over 9000 years should remember it.
>>
>>25982754
Well, I looked through the screenshots you chose for each episode and you did a pretty good job. However, I'm not on board with every decision you made (e.g. you chose Pinkie talking to herself on the Friendship Express over showing the yaks in Party Pooped).

I didn't just make a list of more than a hundred perfect screenshots for all the episodes!
I'm pulling the images directly from the wikia pages.

I know at least for me, I remember the episode 95% of the time after seeing the image, for the rest there's still the actual link to the wiki.

You can always edit the Wikia page's screenshot if you're not happy with it.

>I know at least for me, I remember the episode 95% of the time after seeing the image, for the rest there's still the actual link to the wiki.

At least for me, I remember the episode after only seeing the fucking EPISODE NUMBER and the SEASON. I don't even need to look at the title to know which episode it is after that.

I'm not saying you did a shitty job. You actually did a pretty good job. I'm just wondering why all of this is even necessary. Are the horsefuckers here so out of touch with the show that they don't even remember the episodes anymore?

Well, I guess that's neo-/mlp/ for ya. Full of fans of the fandumb, normalfags and fetishfags, but only few remain who actually care about the fucking show!
>>
>>25983068

That's pretty cool. I definitely remember most, if not all episodes just when seeing the title, but outside of a few specific ones I don't know the numbers by heart. I rarely pay attention to the numbers over the title.
>>
>>25982754
I like the way you implemented that. Very efficient.
>>
>>25983068
Some of us don't rewatch episodes very often, so it's easy to forget the least remarkable ones.

On the top of my head I have no idea what S03E11 is, and I don't remember what the plot of Over a Barrel even is, but if I google it I'm sure I'll remember what a snoozefest it was and hapilly rank it last.

That's Just For Sidekicks, that episode where the Mane 6 leave for the Crystal Empire for the Equestria Games and Spike is saddled with all the Mane 6's pets and eventually tries to give the pets to the CMC, which leads to the CMC, Spike and the pets all traveling to the Crystal Empire. I mostly remember it as the episode where Angel wasn't a total dick, since they were all hiding under the Mane 6's beds and he chose not to alert them to Spike's and the others' presence because Spike apologized for the way he treated the pets. Not one of the most interesting episodes, but I haven't watched that episode in years and I still remember most of what happened.

Over a Barrel is about the Mane 6 travelling to Appleloosa and settling a dispute between the Appleloosans and the Buffalos, which leads to them fighting by throwing cakes at each other and eventually finding a mutually beneficial solution. Once again, not one of the most memorable episodes, but I still remember what it was about.

I did all of this without looking anything up.

To be fair, Just for Sidekicks was so forgettable that even I had almost forgotten what it was about until I skimmed through it a few weeks ago. I don't blame for you for forgetting about it. It wasn't necessarily a terrible episode, but it was really boring. Unfortunately, there are a ton of episodes I really wish I could forget (SAYS, MMDW, Rainbow Falls), but I hate them so much that ironically I remember them more than certain other episodes I don't hate.

There are so many episodes that seem to be unanimously hated and I just don't understand. Why do we hate Magical Mystery Cure? I have no clue. What did Rainbow Falls ever do to you?

Even Spike at Your Service wasn't bad in the overall scheme of cartoons. This show is just way better than everything else, except for gumball, which is only worse by a bit.

Dude, what? Even just looking at the surveys here should tell you otherwise but many people praised the actual episode since the fucking thing came out. Where do people get these notions? Just look in front of you. Speaking for all episodes, near all of them get at least decent scores if not very high ones and it is very rare to see one flat out hated and not merely considered the worst of a bunch. Maybe a handful of episodes exist that were initially and continued to be completely despised.

I just can't understand why a few people hold this notion when so much evidence exists to suggest otherwise. Just looking at these threads I recall several instances of people mentioning how much they enjoyed the plot of MMC and the songs regardless of feelings on Twilicorn.
>>
>>25986673
It's because I don't pay attention and vocal minorities, probably. I still don't know why so many people hate MMC though, because twilicorn is not a good reason.

If they really need more info to figure out an episode then the link to the episode's page on the wiki is right there anyway, so that should work out. Only thing I've had mess up on my end is the picture for Hearth's Warming Eve which comes up blank, but that's not concerning for me and may well just be something with my adblocker or noscript acting up. Hopefully this helps people with their lists. I merged that into the active sorter in the OP.
Thanks for the help Anon!
>>
>>25986704
>I do not understand why so many people hate MMC
because not very many people hate the episode and a negative opinion simply travels the farthest. It blows my mind when a new episode comes out and someone says "everyone clearly hated the episode" meanwhile the strawpoll is switching between a majority giving an episode a 10 and a 9. I very rarely see complete disgust with an episode and even very dry episodes like the Mccolts get a 6/10.

That does not mean one cannot completely dislike an episode, but a select few have this idealization of /mlp/ as one that hates everything when threads stretching back as far as /co/ suggest nothing but the complete opposite. If anything, /mlp/ is probably more positive in regards to the topic they are based around than any community I've ever seen.
>>
>>25986825
I still think it's fair for me to believe that more people actively dislike MMC than almost any other episode, and I can't see why.
>>
>>25987349
for me, MMC was mediocre. i enjoy it overall, but i dont like a lot of the stuff they did in it. it was an extremely important event that was rushed, which is the problem most people had with it. bottom line is: it could have been a lot better.

>that whole post
Please explain to me your reasoning, because I cannot wrap my head around it in the slightest. SAYS was shit on far more than MMC.

I think you're taking the notion of people hating Twilicorn and applying it to people hating the episode when one does not imply the other. Even so, most people still crying about Twilicorn (to the extent you're stressing it) are often laughed off while SAYS, Princess Spike and other such episodes are left open to criticism far more often.

I just don't see where you're getting this impression from, so much counter evidence exists and yet you seem to disregard it repeatedly. Please. Just tell me how having a chart of what is literally every episode ranked by how fond people are of them is not sufficient for you to question that opinion when dozens of episodes are ranked below the one you are claiming to be hated more than every other episode.
>>
>>25987938
I'm not saying that the episode is generally disliked, or averages low, I'm saying a higher number of people would say dislike it (not a neutral stance). But my original statement is that I don't understand why some things are disliked; the only thing wrong with princess spike is that spike did nothing morally wrong that actually affected anybody negatively. The stuff that fell apart did because he was genuinely trying to be helpful. Like is SAYS except he's not literally retarded.

I also feel that this thread fails to be a proper sample of the board just because smarter people tend to be interested in things like statistics and would put the time into this.

I could do another of these using the same format Reddit did and see how they compare. Not sure how I'd work the timing of it with this one though.

The lower barrier of entry would allow more people to participate perhaps.
>>
>>25988495
I feel like if someone doesn't care enough to take this survey, the latter survey wouldn't convince enough people to sufficiently differ.

In terms of intelligence, while underage is obviously a factor, I doubt people are challenged by this survey to the extent that the other one would motivate them
>>
>>
>>25988705
I for one and I'm not just being a dickhole when I say this think of myself as quite smart. I don't think the survey is hard, but if you take it seriously, it's a grind. People not very interested in statistics would be less motivated to sit through it.

Then again, I feel like the average poster on 4chan is of above average intelligence.
>>
>>25988705
I don't know. Comparing the 100+ the first two surveys got with the 71-83 of the ones after S4, and now with this looking like it's going to end with close to the upper 60s to lower 70s at this rate. Not pessimism there, just my lowball guess for the moment. That kind of steady drop makes me think the time has something to do with it. I could be wrong and it's just a coincidence. I certainly wouldn't mind a bunch of people coming in near the end to prove me wrong.

There are a few episodes in this show that I absolutely despise. SAYS, MMDW, Rainbow Falls are all among them. Princess Spike was so terrible that I refuse to rewatch it after watching it just once in a livestream. I'm not like some faggots here who seem to hate any post-MMC episode out of principle, but there are still plenty of shitty episodes to choose from. Most of those shitty episodes happen to be Spike episodes, unsurprisingly enough.

and pic is considered the inventor of the electronic television, I'd still understand why people would call me autistic if I posted multiple pictures of him with no discussion on a board made for horsefuckers.

Yeah. Hearthbreakers really helped Nick out though. Despite a middling Party Pooped.
>>
>>26008265
Party Pooped is definitely a "love it or hate it" episode I've found.

And Berrow kind of got a disadvantage of probably not being given adventure stories, something she excels with in print.

Dusedau was miles below everything else though. Easily the two worst episodes of the season.
>>
>>26008318
I thought What About Discord? was nice for showing that the main 6 are a lot more friendly with Discord now. Twilight and him making up at the end was cute too. The way the episode was laid out just didn't work well though. I really disliked it at first, but was able to appreciate it more a second time through.

>>26008828
I just can't get how the jokes aren't really jokes.

>>26008846
What do you mean? They really beat the idea over the head of the viewer but that doesn't seem to be what you're getting at.
>>
>>26008871
There is literally no reason the rest of the Mane Six shouldn't have realized Twilight and/or Discord were acting strange or were incapable of putting two and two together.

Unrelated to episode quality but Neal Dusedau has not endeared himself to the fandom which means his future episodes will have low ratings too.
>>
>>26008899
They realized Twilight was acting strange and Discord was just reminiscing with them. He had ulterior motives sure, but he was not being outright malicious until the end.

>>26010002
People actually see that? I'm amazed that the main characters couldn't tell how malicious Discord was being the second Twilight showed up and ALWAYS when she was there.

None of them thought it was weird how hard he pushed how much that they had fun ONLY this much when Twilight was around?
>>
>>26010054
I didn't consider it very malicious as much as inconsiderate. The reason I note the difference is because it is much more believable for the mane 6 to overlook the latter in comparison to the former. I'm not hand waving handing the idiot ball to characters when it suits the plot, but in this case (and given that the mane 6 aren't completely emotionally aware of their surroundings) I found it reasonable that they would be joking around about their most recent get together even in the presence of Twilight. It's something friends do.

Like I said, they really beat us over the head with it, but in terms of each individual scene, I find the situation perfectly believable.
>>
>>26010579
I would buy it a LOT more if it weren't a Discord episode.

And if I were in this situation with my different groups of friends I'd be able to tell right away that the "Discord" in my group was trying to make the "Twilight" upset. But maybe that's just me.

Bump before bed with the ranking table plus points up to >>26004759 with 61 Anons so far.
Keep those lists coming if you have them /mlp/.

You have about a week left plus maybe one or two days.

I thought a month would be enough time to let people rewatch the stuff they weren't sure about, plus my Spring classes start tomorrow so I won't be able to keep as close an eye on this as I'd like.
