Not surprised at all by poll results.
But... But... Lyra...
No Pinkie Pie listing?
Clearly the solution is to have a poll on what the next poll should be.
who would'nt want to go to a DJ Pon-3 rave?
oh well, next time Octavia, next time
IMHO Lyra only finished so low because she's the only one who we've never actually seen playing her instrument (or singing in Sweetie Belle's case)
My thought process when voting:"Well Octavia, obviously, she's the premier pony musician!""Oh but wait, Lyra doesn't get nearly enough recognition. Let's go with her.""Oh snap! Vinyl Scratch I almost forgot! Clearly gotta go with the second greatest party pony!""OMG SWEETIE BELLE VOTE NOW!!!"
For me it was a 3-way tie between Lyra, Octavia and Scratch. I ended up picking Scratch, in the end, because I can be a *LOT* more casual at that type of show.The only one I wouldn't particularly be interested in is Sweetie Belle - mostly because I imagine her audience to be . . . well, closer to the MLP target demographic, lol.
Come on! Sweetie Belle has the greatest potential! Why didn't she win?
I only voted Sweetie Belle because she's so adorable. But I think Lyra might be a bit more interesting, just because of what she plays (or is supposed to play.)
@GreatSnapper Just what do you mean by "second greatest pony"?!? Surely that "second" was an accident! I have recently been saying quite frequently that I hope Sweetie Belle gets more songs in season 2. I really liked Hush Now, Quiet Now.
WHY NO PINKIE PIE, SETH?She's the most talented music pony we know of. The other ponies have had 5 or less seconds of music time. (With the exception of Sweetie Belle)
Until Spinal Clop becomes a canon thing, I have to go with Scratch for favorite musician.
Next Poll: Best Non-Pony Character?Or has that already been done?
@NDupree93Don't think it's been done, but we don't want all the competitors to feel bad about themselves when Gummy wins by about million votes, do we?
This poll reminds me of that beautiful story that was posted recently centred around Lyra and her playing and singing. It was called "One Day They'll Throw Roses" or something similar.Excuse me while I go cry my eyes out.
Almost voted for Sweetie because I like Applebloom.
I have to admit, I was really torn between DJ PON-3 and Octavia. So I went with Vinyl. Orchestrated music just doesn't normally have that bass, and Apocolyptipony hasn't been made canon.
@Display NameOh, I dunno. I'd be voting for Madame LeFlower personally.
I want to see Fluttershy in concert personally. She'd be an awesome folk singer!
"Next poll: No clue!"Perhaps you could put up a poll about what the next poll should be about. :)
I think next poll should be about how much of Season 2: Ep 1 we've spoiled for ourselves. Choices being:1.) Other than September 17th, nothing2.) One short one-sentence synopsis3.) I've read the leaked text documentOf course, change the answers to your heart's content.
My ranking:1. Octavia / Vinyl Scratch (tie)Don't make me choose, bro. I can't do it.2. Sweetie BelleBefore she appears in a concert, she needs to become more confident in her singing abilities.3. LyraHas she even touched a lyre? srsly, u guize.
Cutiemark Crusaders obviously
I voted other- Nyx on the Kazoo!!!!
Re: new poll: Chimera? When was there a Chimera in the show? And where's the giffon option?
Nuuuuuuuu I didn't win! But I did come in second. I forgive you all and I still feel loved. <3
I voted Lyra!!! but it was close between her and octavia, jut the solo lyre sounds more interesting than solo chello, i would think...
I voted for sweetie belle :(
PEOPLE Y U NO VOTED LYRA? :(
I chose other because there was no "I'd watch them all" option. Because a Opera Rave amongst the four of them sounds mildly interesting if not a bit strange. Or you know, four different concerts for each of them works too. More shows to watch that way.
For all we know Lyra only repares or makes them, maybe she doesn't know how to play
Poll, I am disappoint.
I must confess myself a bit disappointed with the results, I'd far rather listen to Octavia than Vinyl Scratch any day. I was tempted to vote "other" for Rarity, just because her voice sounded so beautiful in Suited for Success.
Just wait until Lyra gets a scene where she plays.
Other.Lyra + OctaviaAnimusic - Aquaharphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cgt4DEBQy50(Octavia doesn't come in until the end)inb4 "but Octavia is an earth pony"
Well, cello is my favourite instrument, so I'm a little biased. Lyra may be my favourite background pony, but we have not once seen her actually play. Hopefully someday. . .
Well, Scratch clearly exploited her fanbase on facebook.Octavia's humbleness will overshadow Vinyl's victory.
I voted for Octavia.I'm sorry, but techno/rave music doesn't hold a candle to classical/orchestrated to me.
I would have preferred to listen to Octavia play, I prefer classical to hip-hop/rave/whatever kind of music you call what Vinyl plays. But then it hit me, what happens at each of their concerts? Being at a performance of Octavia's would mean sitting quietly in a seat without the chance to get those around me, unless it's a formal event like the Grand Galloping Gala. And my tastes towards those kind of events take a similar path as Princess Celestia's do (Boooooring!)Now, while I may not be a dancer by any definition, being at a performance of Vinyl's would mean being able to move around, meet the other ponies (OTHER PONIES! WOOHOO!), and make a fool of myself if I so desire. That's the experience I would prefer, and that's why I voted as I did, for Vinyl Scratch.
I would love to see Octavia in concert. However, when you put Scratch in the mix, I have to go with what I'll have more fun doing.
I would so go to a CMC concert, wouldn't be boring :)BTW, it you're going to give us an "Other" option, could you please provide a comment thread to say what our "Other" might be?
Sweetie Belle should've won man, that soulful voice trumps them all. ;)
When was this poll made?! O-O I didn't get to vote! D:Oh well good I suppose, I'd hate having to choose between Lyra and Octavia, and I would love to see Sweetie Belle sing more too. Those 3 would go well together I imagine.
>New Poll: The Best Non Pony Mythical CreatureNo griffin? Really? This is ridiculous, for all her personality quirks Gilda had astounding character design. Shame on you guys.
@MaKSI'm just trying to figure out where chimera came from. I certainly don't remember one being in the show! Maybe they should switch that out with griffin.
@Laurence BrownCome to think of it, I'm starting to suspect that's Seth's way of spelling "Hydra".Either that, or it's a hypothetical/fanfiction thing rather that canon.
@marioandsonicAmen.Dvorak's "New World Symphony" was part of the first classical concert I attended about 8 years ago. I still rate it as one of the greatest moments of my life.
I said 'Other' for 'All the above', a duet with Lyra and Pony X, a duet with Scratch and Pony X, a concert of everypony individually, and a concert with myself.
darn it, why not Octavia!? I knew I should have went around all the librarys' computers voting for her
As a fan of electronic dance music, I had to vote for Scratch :)
Wtf?Where is the Lyra love?You make Lyra cry u guiz.And me.)':
oh dear. uhm, i like cello music but it's usually meant to be sad. and, uhm, electronica? sorry ...a nice peaceful evening of lyre music. mmm, actually, i'm going to go find my old Total War soundtrack files. the medieval and roman era music is really relaxing.
here was my reasoning.1. Octavia: I've always really loved Double Bass Concertos and other Double Bass solo pieces. I make classical music and with that also comes my obligatory classical music bias.2. Pinkie pie (Other): Because she sings so much Daniel Ingram music and skillfully plays multiple instruments simultaneously.3. Scratch: Oonts oonts is so easy to appreciate. Thus I appreciate it.4. Sweetie Belle: While I'd love to support a fellow vocalist, she isn't that great. Makes sense seeing as how she is still just a filly though.5. Lyra: Sits funny in the show... which is entertaining I guess... but I've never really cared too much for lyres/harps/blah as the sole feature of a piece.
I love Sweetie Belle's dumbshit character but i hate her singing, so she's out. I hate techno and rave, scratch is out. I do like harps but cellos take the cake with me, Octavia it is. Plus, the structure and sound of classical music resembles that of many metal bands i like, so it was kind of an easy pick. :)
I dislike techno but I voted Pon-3 because frankly, based on her looks, she'd try to put on a show, instead of just doing a performance
You realize that there's enough people who didn't vote for Octavia or Scratch that if they only had those two choices, Octavia could easily beat out Scratch.And, of course, it could just as easily go the other way to give Scratch a landslide victory.As per Sweetie singing in season 2, I wouldn't doubt it, but she'd still refuse to sing to an audience, citing nervousness.
I voted Lyra.
If Octavia and Scratch teamed up to perform something like this...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdXkSjpvF74
I wanted to see Sweetie Belle win. An 8 years old who can sing like a middle aged Motown signer is always worth the ticket price. Octavia was second for me, I'm a fan of classical music. I never heard what a Lyra sounds like. I should check that out.
I am shocked and disappointed by the lack of Gryphon in the newest poll
I picked Vinyl Scratch because I saw this poll right after a deadmau5 concert, so I had electronica on the brain.
I picked Scratch because, not for the fact that she's my favorite pony, but because I love electronic music above all else, and I love all those blinking lights and all the energy one of those concerts radiate.
Silly ponies, Pinkie Pie is obviously the most musically talented.
Sweetie Belle, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Roseluck all together as one band. So other.
I voted for Lyra because we haven't seen her perform yet.
Flutterguy.Singing anything.Opera, country, 'Hop, Skip and Jump', anything.
I voted Octavia over Vinyl for the sake of my hearing. I have nothing against electronic music, but raves are too loud. Raves will make you deaf, symphony orchestras will not
Where the hell is the "Gryphon" or Hydra option in the newest poll. I'm not voting until I see the former of the two in it.
Who else wanted to vote Fluttershy?
Shame on all of you! How could you not include Fluttershy!? I voted other, since you all fail to realise her potential.I would give up my Xbox to go to ONE Fluttershy concert. Her voice is angelic.
I wanted to vote Fluttershy too, but I went with the 2nd best option I could vote for, the hottest DJ in Equestria. *Is a big fan of every type of electronic/techno music.*
to be fair, we've never actually seen Lyra play an instrument...
Proud to say that'd I'd prefer a Pinkie concert. *Rewatches Over a Barrel
Scratch or Octavia... hard choice. I'd love to go to both, personally.@Guywithpasta Wait, leaked text document? Since when?
