Tfw u find a species thats litterally just a madh-up of two popular pony species -.-

Its stuff like this that makes me go... Are they newbies just wanting to get something out there and be popular immediately? It doesn't take much thought to do that. Why not spend more time creating and make something new and work at something till it becomes popular

Exactly!
And its not about popularity, like these people think!
Its about love and design! Popularity has a small part but they are so narrow that they miss the big picture unfortunately v-v

it's not that I don't care or that it doesn't bother me, but talking to these people NEVER work =/
It's best just to ignore them and hope that despite them using a similar theme, you still use it to the best of your potential and make the best designs you can v w v

Yeah but you know they never have a 'popular' species ^^
Its no big deal, just a little irritating

yea true... though its a little scary, because the species could become decently popular eventually...

Psh
Dont worry
People know that this is a type of ripoff. Fans of pondponies and primal plant ponies are not opt to let this strange mash-up take its place v-v

and after being called out for pretty much stealing traits from other species and trying to actually make points off of it someone else will chime and tell them its not stealing and that theyre doing nothing wrong...
trying to argue with some bs logic like "its not copy righted so its legal to steal designs/closed species" >.>
Its a pain to deal with people like that =/

hm, dont they collab with the person who made those island back ponies?
(Id rather scratch my head over why they would purposefully make it look like a pondbutt, knowing people will see it as that, while the other species has other key marks that could have been used in a collab)

Hmm maybe but the point is that it looks like a pondbutt and a primal :P
Its still not cool v-v

But thats why i didnt confront them

:iconmallowglitz:
MallowGlitz Featured By Owner May 9, 2016
yeah, thats true.
especially with primals/plant ponies I feel like there is a new species trying to look like them every day =/
Its kinda scary to see what that can do to a species, with people feeling like the species has no worth any more now that its ripped off so much.

Mhm v-v its really really unfortunate
I understand accidental things but this to me is too blatant

What i think is worse is that one person out right said it looked like pondponies and still wanted it
People have zero respect for artists it seems v-v

that and apparently no idea why something like pondponies is so popular.
I could be wrong, but for me the community behind the species is worth so much, the lore, the events, all that kinda stuff.
Sure not every species needs to be like this, some are just fun designs for some to use, but usually they stay rather underdeveloped.

Unrelated but something unpleasant I had to deal with. I sold a CS custom for around 200 points and now found out the owner of the custom went ahead and resold it for 900 points to someone who wasnt even part of the group for the species. the new owner refused to join the group and after I told them I would take the custom back since both violated the rules so clearly they complained to me that they paid 900 points for it...like it was my fault the first owner sold the custom without permission =/
sorry for ranting, just kinda reminded me of the whole "no respect" thing ;v;

No i understand ^^
My advice is make a Terms of Service agreement for all those who own the species, like i did with orbites. Then you have at least some grounds to get an argument in v-v im sorry that happened to you! Its awful what people do v-v
