I've never put much faith in register dates. I first picked the game up and started lurking in '08, but didn't need an account until recently.

Necro910 is the steel in every warrior's sword and the MAGMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA in every volcano.

Necro reminds me of this (slightly NSFW) flash.  Turn your volume down a touch.

"So you're a mmmmbeeatch that like hmmmsocks?"
"Yes, fine, whatever."
"That's good!  Because we've got plenty of socks, IN THE MAGMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABEEEYATCH!"

I watched that...

                             ....
                                ....What the hell?
Hahaha, but in some crazy way, yes, that totally makes sense.

You do not understand the ways of Toady One. He is not a business, he's just a guy trying to make a fun game. He's invited people to come along and experience the journey with him (and help him test it out as he goes along). At the end of the day, I don't think his main goal is to sell Dwarf Fortress, its just to create the best game possible.

To summarize that flash:
in My Little Pony, Luna (the little purple one) raises and lowers the moon, and Celestia (the big white one) raises and lowers the sun.  1,000 years ago, Luna was jealous that everyone slept during her night, and decided she would cause eternal night.  Celestia imprisoned her in the moon, until the current cartoon where she escapes but then turns friendly so it's all cute.

The Internet has decided that Celestia is a tyrant who banishes people to the moon on her whims, and that all of pony-dome lives under the constant thread of moon banishment, and that Luna is the adorable and downtrodden sister.  "To the Moon" has become the joke of things like "The toaster burned my bread.  To the moon!"

I think it fits the dwarven mindset nicely.  "There's mud in the hallway."  "MAGMAAAAAAA!"

(ps, I'm working on making all of you into pony fans now :3)

That's almost creepy, to be honest.

But it works, I see the similarities and thank you for the wonderful flash and explanation.

A LOT of My Little Pony is creepy if you face it seriously.  The economy is terrifying, but of course that's if you treat it like an economy.  If you treat it like a kid's show, then it's adorable!

That's what's confusing :P  The "Earth Ponies" like the regular horses are the "worker caste" any time you see them, working the fields and harvesting apples more often than not.  Yet the Unicorns can do everything so much easier.  One episode shows one earth pony trying to harvest a whole orchard, and eventually breaking down and asking for help.  Then a unicorn just waltzes up and magically lifts a whole orchard's worth of apples off the trees and into baskets in about 5 seconds (realtime, not exaggerating).

Magic makes mundane tasks so easy that there simply must be something sinister going on to allow the non-magical to survive.

That is really creepy now that I think about it. They show this to children?

Well, they gloss over such details.  The focus isn't on "how does Applejack make money when a motivated unicorn could do fifty times the work?"  The focus is instead on, "Aw, it's cute how Applejack swallows her pride and asks her friends for help!  Haha look, the yellow one is scared of trees!"
