YES, FINALLY I CAN GO TO FUCKING BED.
Awesome! Good job everypony at EQD and especially Seth!
Heh.That is quite amusing.
That's a lot of Pony
Congratulations Equestria Daily! :)
Also, Yay on the large number of pageviews.
Chyea! Nice work EQD! Thanks for bringing the community together!
Woo grats everypony!
SIXTH!oh and also WOW Ive been here long enough to see a total of 20 million views on the counter!May this site never die ^_^
This is the BEST SITE EVER!!! Cue gala music.
Congrats to you, Seth + Phoe + Cereal. And to you all bronies. We all made this possible. And it is more glorious than I'd ever imagined. Plus more! I mean, Season 2! With season 3 greenlighted! Love you all guys.
That's a lot of pony. That's over 25 times the population of my state
Yay!!! 50000000000 = RARITY!!!
and may you guys reach another 50mil more.
Grats EQD ♥
Hoofz all 'round /)*(\
I called it!http://i55.tinypic.com/erkjte.pnghttp://i55.tinypic.com/erkjte.jpgI have the screenshots there and the math in my binder, saying I called it! I posted that in the 40m post.
Trixie is borrowing Cheerilee's troll face and apparently has anti-gravity hair. Silly Trixie.Oh, also congrats on the 50 million thingy. You guys rock. Woohoo~
Why can't I hold all these bronies? D:
Ha ha, I saw the actual rollover completely by accident. Logged in to check new posts expecting that it happened sometime during the night, glance at the counter, 5. 126.96.36.199....O_O
Well done Bronies, Brohoofs all around and thank you as always Seth, Cereal and Phoe for doing such an awesome job on keeping up with the community and all the fantastic stuff it puts out.Hopefully I'll see the day when the view count simply becomes too large to fit onto the screen : ).
Damn, that is a lot.
50 million views in 10 months flat :)
Trixie, just what are you doing with my student?Somepony needs a moon timeout, or perhaps I could banish her to Seth instead. Yes thats a better idea.Congratulations on 50 million views.
Way to go, EqD! Yay!Thanks for all the joy you bring us through hard work :)
Yes yes... all faster than normal 'speed of sound' counter we got going.I swear touching horns is up there with her eating pinecones in the wierdness that is the great and ponyful Trixie.
I've been meaning to ask, how come the pageview counter is always going at a constant rate? It never speeds up, slows down or pauses.
Holy crap ._. That's like 1/6th of the frikkin' country right there.
@yettiAt this rate, it'll be another 50 million in just 3 and a half months, probably sooner.
Ponies ponies ponies ponies ... Oh how we love you so! Yay for the milestone.
Wooo! Congrats EQD!
This occasion necessitates the immortal words of Fluttershy: "yay".
@banannagram Oops...oh well, the first one didn't matter.
Should be mentioned that these aren't unique users.
@WollffeeyI hope so :)
@Forte CanterChances are it's counting at it's max rate for the speed the counter flips.So, it MIGHT be behind.
Wow, it goes up like crazy...We could make it to 1 billion within a year...! I mean... um... if that´s okay.
I want to hug all the bronies but I can't
That 'aint a single one of those views that hasn't been deserved. Gratz all around!
@wackyteen I thought so. Some morons at school took it as a sign that it's fake, & the show isn't as popular as we'd want them to think. So I told them to search My Little Pony on deviantart, youtube, facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc. & then told them of EQD, EQGaming, EQRadio, Everypony Radio, derpyhooves.com, RDN, Flankbook, A bunch of forums, & a few others. :P
Totally Awesome!Seth, Phoe and Cereal, you have my utmost gratitude and I'm certain that of our fellow Bronies too! :) Equestria Daily is completely stellar!:)Oh, that reminds me. Hey Pinkie! Let's party like it's 999!!!Congratulations everypony and let us forge onwards, together!YAY!
I just hope they are legit views and not bots.
:3So much poni. xDEvery time I mention how many views this site has to my nonbrony friends (who are soon to be bronies if I play my cards right), they get amazed at the sheer number of us xD
@WollffeeyYeah, I'm calling it on.....January 4 howbout?
Wow. I've been here since before we got 1 million. I used to be the Pinkamina Diane Pie who didn't have a blogger account. It's really great that we have this many views. Though I'm pretty sure at this point that at least a million of them are mine. ^,^
@PonyPonyPonyBronyI'm thinking more like Dec 31-Jan 2, but like I said, I think the rate of pagehits will accelerate as even more people jump on the pony bandwagon. So, we could even see 100 by Christmas or even a little sooner.
I shall point my new pony friends here to aid in the creation of a new era, an era with 6 million views!wow, that didnt sound nearly as epic as I wanted it too...
Last night, I did a bit of math and predicted that it would hit at 6:45 central time (-6), which turned out a bit late. At one point I calculated EIGHT hits per second. So there you go.
MUHAHA, yes. The plan for world domination is slowly unfolding, in a few weeks, we shall overthrow the so called government. DITZY WILL RULE! ALL HAIL THE CROSS-EYED
1 month of being a brony ( my wife say my attitude has change for the best , im more peacefull and happier ) and so far 1.8g of pony accumulate , must collect more pony , so many good artist out there, cheers
Achievment earned. Congratulations, bronies!
Happy 50 million! Fancy mathematics
Oh wow... remember when it hit 30 mil? THAT WASN'T LONG AGO! @_@ It'll be 100 mil before you know it...
@WollffeeyWell this blog may have more views than what we can tell. You know how the views count up without much of a change in pace? Well it could be that the blog is getting more views than it can register at a time. So what if everyone just stopped visiting this site for a while; the number would keep on rising until its caught up. Although I'm not sure about that at all, its just something I wouldn't doubt.and well if you went off of that logic.. you could just do, putting it simply, every 1 second = 1 view and that may give you a fairly good estimate of what day a said number of views would be.
Fun Fact: Almost 20% of those views came after the start of Season 2.
I better start making a banner for 60 million!
When I first checked Equestira daily this site was celebrating 9 million page views.Sometimes I feel afraid that this is growing too quickly and will soon consume the world, but then I remember that ponies are awesome.(Also my picture up there!)http://dw1482.deviantart.com/#/d4brir6
@Forte Canter The way hit counters like that work (ones that update dynamically, rather than statically) is pretty simple. They average traffic over a certain amount of time and go up based on that average. Considering that EqD has been up for as long as it has, it would take a pretty significant spike or trough to alter the counter's speed.Depending on the exact traffic at the time, the 50 millionth hit may have come a bit before or after the counter updating to that point (likely a bit after, considering the early time that it hit at). But it wouldn't have been off by much. If the counter gets ahead of the actual count in the morning, it likely gradually falls behind over the course of the day, before catching up at night. Starting the cycle anew.
Hey, you know what this calls for?A PARTY!!
@FamusJamusI'd say that meant that Season 2 made us 20% cooler, but unfortunately, that's not the case.It made us 25% cooler.
best site evar
@PapapoofI'm not trying to be that precise about it. The guesstimation is all just for fun. The time frame I'm using is the amount it took to go from 40 to 50, which is roughly 19 or so days, and even less precisely, about 2 and a half weeks. I do hard, precise calculations for my thesis, I don't intend on doing them for pony.
Holy crap Rarity is an Orange lantern..............awwww yeah
@ScootawhoTHANK YOU.This has been bothering me since before the 40 million mark.I commented on that celebration post asking if he could reveal the secret of the page counter when they inevitably hit 100 million at the uniform rate. Thanks for explaining!
Ponies, pooonies pony pony ponyyy. Pony ponies ponies ponies pony. Pony, pony pony pony pony. Ponieeees, pony.Pony pony, ponypony, ponies. Ponies ponies PONIES.Pony.
Wow. Didn't see that one coming last summer.100 million for Christmas!
@WollffeeyWell I'm sure google would give you the amount of seconds in a day and blah blah blah you already know what I mean. Well, the counter actually moves up a lot faster than a second. About twice each second.Hmm maybe I'll test this myself... after I wake up... and if I remember still by then.
Congratulations, all of them, take them, now.Also, that image is quite amusing.
Well, guess we'll all have to do this again in 2 weeks when we hit 60,000,000.Awesome work bronies.
That comic alone is worthy of celebrating the 50,000,000 mark.
And i've been part of the fandom before they hit half million.Time goes really fast
Okay, I've done a bit of maths regarding the view count. At this present time of day there are a close approx. of 300 views per minute.Although the view counter, being restricted to its top speed, goes up at a rate of 100 views per minute.So the views are 3x the rate at which the visible counter are going.However, I expect this is no where near peak time and is probably the minima time. So we should be going up at a greater rate at around 1900 EST. I'd estimate 500 views/minute, but that is a general guess.
Hm.. so from now on, we'll party every 2 weeks due to another 10 Mio? Come on guys, work harder! It has to be EVERY week.. and on Saturday... uh yeah!
damn it!just missed it again :( i'm not going to sleep for the 60 million mark,i sleept through the 40 million mark too :/awsome thougt! congrats EqD! :D
http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/02/100000-hits.htmlRemember those days? How far we've come...Congrats, EqD!!!! Onward!
Hooray for large round numbers!Pinkie Pie has never been more happy to be associated with a website; we give her ample opportunities and reasons to throw parties.
Congratulations EQD and all staff!Here's to another 50 Million!
I started bronyhood a bit late, season 1 was already finished, so my first visit here was about 20 million views ago. 20 million views in around 1 month. That is amazing! -----------------------------------------------Important: The timer is not fake. Proof: It is a simple piece of java that can only count so fast (As this site is getting views faster than it can count.) So the way to tell that it is real is to memorize the current counter number. Then refresh the page, and the number will jump up. (Mine jumped up by a good 300)
Magnificent !!And yeah, we need to do the 100000000 for christmas !
I think you guys are going to need a bigger pageview counter.
The herd is growing larger each day, lets see 100 million by christmas! *brohoofs all around*
Woo! Became a brony a week ago, was surfing youtube, all depressed and sad, and i found some brony videos, i think it was some music, and decided to check out the show. Watched season 1 in 2 days, now the ponies have taken over my head!
*speaks to self*if the 50 mil. post is going to be another 'accidently clicked' one then i'll draw a shipping pic of whoever posts it.*sees post*Sorry Cereal...(btw grats everypony)
Well, at least my banner will have had a good run for the few hours it was up. Hehehehe. Seriously though, grats on 50mil!
Forgot to say *tf2 quote* Our influence grows!
inb4 they need to find a new view counter because we'll hit 100million in 3 months
OMG 50 million views!Congratulations you guys, you have really done something really amazing with this site.To 50 million views and many more!!!!!
Congrats, EqD, and all the bronies who made this possible. XD
Yay!you are now automatically 20% cooler
Gah the walk to school made me miss the bloody milestone!
@PapapoofAfter fussing around in Excel for a couple minutes, I came up with a very precise date and time based on the exact number of days and hours it took to go from 40 to 50. I got January 13, 2012 at 10:39 am Pacific standard time. Like I mentioned before, the rate of hits will probably increase in the coming weeks, so it'll probably be closer to the Jan 1st-Jan 7th. But, I'm no prognosticator, so take of that what you will. :3 (I earlier misremembered when 40 was hit. I was a day off.)
Happy 50M, EqD!
Hmmn, when a website has more pageveiws than you have people in your country. You know it's popular.Also! I was here for like, 14 Million I think!so yay!
Gratz on 50m, long live the fandom!
Oh wow...when I started following this site, the counter was juuussst shy of four million.I remember the massive hurrah over the added digit when it hit 10 million.And now here we are. SO. AWESOME. /)^3^(\Great work on creatin' content, Creative Types!Great work on postin' content, Mods!Great work on viewin' content, Brony Masses!Keep it up! Wooo!
Damn it. I always sleep through reaching the X million mark.Why do I always sleep through it?
Congratz on 50M !!!!
I remember when we got 1 million. I was tripping balls when we hit 1 mill....
Happy 50 Million everypony!
@SprintFRight. What will happen if we reach 100.000.000 with the current counter? Forget the mayan calendar, this is way more important!Also: Congratulations, everypony!
50 million. Wow, that is such a huge number. I can remember when this place reached 5 million and it was a huge deal. Well, everyone raise a glass to the next 50 million page views. It should be a good few months.
So we're halfway to breaking the viewcounter now?Considering I joined when we were just past 10k, I'd say we've certainly gained pace.
Wow, we hit 30 million just after we got that first commercial with Epic Celestia! And that was about the middle of August! Thats amazing, 20 million hits in under 2 months!I've been here since about 7 million hits, and I can't believe how fast it's grown!Good job, Bronies! Here's to another 50 million, and beyond!
@mrjoshmacintoshI've been here sine before one million hits.Feelsgoodpony
Happy 50,000,000 hits to EQD and everypony out there! now, let's go for 66,666,666 hits :P.
@TosxychorHoly Cats Batman, 50M hits.. (once I figure this all out it would be closer to 51M)
Pretty soon, EqD is just going to go ahead and take over the world.Think of all the emails Seth! You could read for days!
Pav Feira said... [Reply To This Comment] Oh, did we hit 40 million views? *bored yawn* I suppose we'll need to start working on a 50 million view celebration for next week. How tedious~ September 15, 2011 8:58 AM ---It took us _three weeks_ to get the last 10 million views? For shame, bronies, I expect better. Let's work harder for that 60M, shall we?
Yeah, but only 20% of the views were believed to be cool enough.
Awhhh yeahhhhGrats EqD crew, you deserve it
"I made a banner for the occasion, but *Seth went to bed*, I think."Wait, nothing about this story is adding up. Seth doesn't sleep.
I'm so proud. I've been watching that counter since about 4 million views. It's grown so much since then. *wipes tear from eye*So beautiful~
Dat Trixie face.Also, congrats and thanks to the guys who run this awesome site. Hey! You know what this calls for? ...Wait, how does she do that scene change thing?....um....maybe I could screen wipe like...no?...eh, screw it.
I've accidently clicked on this site every day since spring... even when I had no internet -_- .... no wait... :D
thats more clicks then people in my country. canada is slacking,
50mil!? I find that hard to believe. :U
Congratulations EqD! Actually, I really clicked here accidentally^_^''
Gonna need a bigger counter at this rate
I think by the end of January next year we'll hit 100,000,000
Okay, I'm astonished. Well done on your part guys. Keep up the summarily fantastic work :D
Mmmm. Delicious fan-service pic ya got there. Love Twilight's line.
100 million by the end of the year
Looks at counter how long until we rule the earth 50000000....Looks at watch SOON!!!!
Woke up, 49mil and something. Went to school. Came back, views is 50+mil... Augh, next time I'll miss school if necessary!Congrats to all the EqD and to our growing (and all powerfull) herd of bronies! That's a mighty big milestone and I'm proud to say I helped with at least 4/day (confound these ponies, they drive me to obsession!)....wonder how many view we'll have by the end of Season 2.
*DEEP BREATH* yay(couldn't resist)
It's the hooves... always causing ponies to miss-click things... :POn a serious note, congrats EqD on hitting 50 mil mark. :D
This is absolutely incredible! I cannot find enough positive things to say about all the people in this fandom and the diligent staff keeping this site running. Congratulations on 50M and best wishes for 50M more! Love to all. You're the greatest!-Moonlight Ballad, Bard of Equestria
Y U SO ADORABLE HERE TRIXIE?Congrats on 50 mil!
50 million... Almost twenty times the size of my COUNTRY. We need more Lithuanian bronies!Come to think of it, that's like one pageview for every 140 people in the world...
People are waiting for 100 million now. I say we go for a billion! Think of what people will think..."Yeah, check out this fanblog. Guess how many hits it has.""A million?""Are you serious? A billion.""o.O"Now my new prediction:60mil by 10-21/22. Beat THAT!
I think EzeCoyote (ZavCoyote at his new account) has the best video for this epic milestone:Epic Trixie
Really want to give out my thanks to Seth, Cereal, Phoe, and all who run the site. By far my most viewed page. Great job everypony! Know that we appreciate every last bit of work.
You make Trixie HAPPY!
This blog regularly receives all my internees lately. I NEVER in my wildest dreams thought being called a brony was anywhere in my future, even when I was aware of the phenomenon. Then, sometime in August, Fluttershy, Derpy, Pinkie and all the rest changed everything. Confound them forever!I'm guessing that counter will go into overdrive after Luna Eclipsed...
@Daniel G. *internets, DYAC!
Im very happy for you EQD, keep the marvelous work /)*(\
As I've been here since before the site even hit 10 K... I'm flabbergasted, and EXCEEDINGLY proud of all the ponies here!
Aww, I missed the moment of the big milestone kinda. 100mil in.. what, three months? lol Also, I love that picture. Trixie, you're so silly. <3
Yeah, I did click on the site by accident, but I can't seem to leave...That picture is hilarious!
Congrats EqD..Seth, Cereal, and Phoe.Love the banner image and the page title as well.
Epic Banner is EPIC! :)
WAY TO GO! May the spirit of ponies never die!
Awesome! Now I really wonder how many bronies there are. Has anyone done a count of some sort before, for a rough idea? Like a census?
That is a shiny banner!
May I say congratulations to every single person within this fandom that have made this event possible. Lauren Faust, Jayson Theisen, Hasbro, Studio B and all the behind the scenes people for this thing we now gravitate around, Seth, Phoe, Cereal, and all the people who have made and maintained this website, and to all you fellow bronies out there that have given Equestria Daily those 50,000,000 hits. I hope to get to 100,000,000 hits before Christmas like others have stated.But before that, I'm really looking forward to seeing the 65,000,000th hit. But yes. Congratulations everypony. Congratulations.
Next target: 100 mil. See you all there.
100mil by New year WE CAN DO IT
We want pizza, Celestia damn you.
Woohoo! 50 million! That is really impressive and I'm proud to be a member of this group. I've only been here since about 20 million but I've loved every second of my time spent here. Thanks Seth, Cereal, and Phoe for keeping up with this amazing blog! And of course thanks to Lauren Faust, Daniel Ingram, James Wooten, all the animators, storyboarders, and everyone else for this wonderful show! I missed the 50,000,000 by 500 views cause i walked off to grab my toothbrush :(
I remember one million, wow time goes fast.
Whoo 50 million! Now we need more!
to 100,000,000! And then after that...ONE BILLION!
Congratulations ED!!! ^^You deserve this and so much more. Now it's time to aim for the 100K visits!!! :D
Wow, this fanbase has gotten big. I'm a newcomer myself as of yesterday.
Congrats to 50m EQD all those clicks of mine on this site on purpose were not wasted!! Yay!!! :D
It's like celebrating 500,000 was just yesterday.
Congrats EqD!Q:Does it count per page viewed? For example: there maybe 15 updates in a day, and I view all 15 of them, will it count as 15 views on the counter, or just the one for loading the home page?
Congratulations to each and every one of you - and us. This rocks, woohoo~
Agree with some of the commenters here. Pageviews is an awesome stat, and I do intend to keep celebrating all of the milestones. But if Seth & Co have access to other stats like # of unique visitors, I'd definitely be interested to see those stats!
woo that is alot of pony. ALOT of pony
@Aranarth It probably counts as a hit each time you load a new page on this site. So that would be more like 33 views unless you keep a window on the home page.
I'm a little late but Hurray!
Woot to 50 million pageviews. :D
Congratulations to everypony, hugs to every brony out there. This is one huge milestone. And it keeps growing, it just keeps growing !!!
@WollffeeyAlright, gonna attempt this.I believe in a week from now we'll have around 51,400,000 views.
@wackyteenI believe it is, if you refresh the page the number shoots up really fast.
Wow these views are really picking up speed lately.20,000,000 views in 6 and a half weeks?
I would like to point out that I, nor has anyone else that I've seen, have never said:'Trixie is pretty horny right now.'Now that I have that out of my system...woohoo!
Hey Ditzy is not Derpying >:(Awesome Banner xD
WOW. I remember way back when 500,000 was a big deal. Now I feel old o_0
Congrats on 50 mil, I remember when it reached 20 mil. Its rapidly expanding this site :)
And to think, I was here when we celebrated every 1 million hits!
Yay!My dedication and huge budget for mice replacements has finally paid off.
And I stayed up ALL NIGHT till the last 15000 while reading the updated chapter of Stasis.... Then I went to bed after finishing the chapter, so early in the morning, completely forgetting about it.I fail internetz
I managed to witness the rollover, but missed seeing this post by five minuets. Oh well, congrats.
Posting in one of the most important things this decade.
