What does "PonyLeaks" mean?
« on: 23 Jun 2011, 19:21 »

Someone explained to me what a "sex furnace" was, but I still have no idea what PonyLeaks means.

Does anyone know? Where did it come from?

It's a reference to Wikileaks, which was in the news when Jeph renamed the forums a few months ago.

Previously it was the "Serious Pony Discussion Forum."


Why ponies? I'm not sure I want to know.

Ah, the ponies didn't want the world to know their secrets, but PonyLeaks gave everything away. :)

Unfortunately, one of the pony secrets outed by PonyLeaks was which ponies were suffering from an embarrassing case of the Pony Leaks.

I had always wondered where the "Serious Pony" part came from. Other than a one-time reference in the comic from Faye (wanting a pony), I think?

The sub forum called "awkward self-aware makeout zone" [now called CHATTER] has for some years been the preferred Internet meeting point of a group of people who mainly met on the Internet (in a different forum originally).  They occasionally have get-togethers in real life (maybe travelling across the world to do so), and some of them live together and some have long-term relationships.  The core of this group have over the past few weeks been moving much of their Internet interaction to a new forum that one of them has set up, so the character of that part of this forum is starting to change; note that this is my observation only - I am not part of that group (though I have joined their new forum), and so cannot speak for them.

Previously it was the "Serious Pony Discussion Forum."

Probably just a drunken whimsy of Jeph's.  Before that it was the Sexy-Dad's Discussion Forum (for just one day), and I don't recall what before that.

EDIT - Here is a full list of the forum titles over the years, with approximate start dates (my favourite was "Suddenly: BUTTERFLIES"):

2005, Mar 5:   Questionable Content
2008, Mar 8:   OH GOD THE PAIN
2008, Apr 1:   FURIOUS MASTURBA [gunshots]   
2008, Apr 7:   Rock Out to the Piched Toms
2008, Apr 16:   whaaaaaaaaaaaat
2008, May 18:   BONER WARS
2008, June 21:   I DON'T THINK THIS IS VERY FUNNY
2008, June 28:   Forums Admin Password: BUTTS_1980
2008, July 1:   bloodbloodbloodbloodbloodbloodbloodbl
2008, July 7:   A Ass Pocket of Whiskey
2008, July 10:   Girl Versus Boy Versus Whale Dicks
2008, July 21:   My Fursona is a Leech
2008, Aug 22:   Suddenly: BUTTERFLIES
2008, Oct 12:   QC Talky Place
2009, Feb 26:   SexyDads Forum*
2009, Feb 27:   Serious Pony Discussion Forum
2010, Dec 7:   PonyLeaks Discussion Forum & Sex Furnace

* From memory - I can't locate a copy with the full title (the first word is exact, though)

March 2008 is around the time that Jeph started to get really fed up with the forums, and from Mar 2009 he became nearly inactive in them.  The Dec 2010 change followed the storm that appeared in this forum around the breakup.  This quote shows Jeph's mood at the start of the changes:

The temptation to just destroy everything I have ever created has never been higher.

In October 2011 I changed the title to the current: QC & Ponyleaks Discussion Forum
This was to keep a link to the past while moving towards normality.
In June 2013 I finally reverted the title to simply: QC Discussion Forum

I can't read the forum name without thinking of Looking For Group.

I recall one of the older forum members having a sig quoted from a thread which ran something like

"I seriously want a pony"

"are we having a serious pony discussion?" 


I think that was the origin of the forum name when I joined.

Well, I don't understand it exactly, but something about people having sex with each other and creating a lot of heat, hence, furnace.

I have no idea, really. lol.

If my explanation above didn't do it for you, just go back to the earlier days of the forum and see how much of the discussion was about sex.

Three random examples:  ex.1
[edit - the other two have since been deleted in a purge...]
ex.2   ex.3
