So the last 24 hours have been turbulent for the twitterverse. BlackGryphon was spotted at DHX, Mike Vogel stepped down, and something else happened too...
what was it...
oh yeah! Everfree Network pulled the plug.
Next item was the announcement that Mike Vogel, the Vice President of development for Hasbro Studios, and generally bro guy, stepping down from that position, to become the co-executive producer for the My Little Pony movie.
Generally known for being the go-to guy when fandom/Hasbro relations need smoothing out this is a considerable shift for the show.
Last but not least was the announcement that Everfree Network would be closing up shop for good, come the first of the year.
This caused a plethora of reactions, ranging from the "sad-to-see-you-go's" to the "they were still around"? and everywhere in-between. Equestria Daily was noted as preparing to open a podcast section to their extensive fan-labor coverage, to accommodate the few remaining displaced programs. This announcement was met with resentment from the likes of the ever level-headed Osaka Jack of EFN.
Word is that some EFN folks will continue on with a new station site "Canterlot Hill" and others will join with "Poison Joke Productions". Whatever that is.
Below, HN has gathered many of the heartfelt posts that we were able to see about the closing of one of the larger, older pieces of the fandom, from its operators.
Well said Draft. Well said.
At the time of posting, the EFN shutdown article on their website had 34 upvotes, which sources say, may be the most positive reaction any article there has ever received.
