"Women tend to be the most ungrateful creatures" - Crystal Mountain Pony Con's Newest Community Guest UPDATED by

Update: He's been removed from the guest list.

Update 2: He scrubbed his entire Twitter feed.



In the latest in a long line of head-scratching decisions, Crystal Mountain Pony Con announced their most recent "community guest" for their upcoming convention. A "cartoonist with a silly sense of humor and imagination" named CartoonEric (not sure how imaginative that name was to begin with but let's not get sidetracked). If you've never heard of CartoonEric before, you're not alone, as he only has 50 followers on Twitter at the time of writing, but that's only the first questionable aspect of this announcement. A quick scroll through his twitter timeline reveals a lot of very strong political opinions, but very little to do with ponies.

Let's take a look at Cartoon "Time to let the lead fly." Eric.




Beyond his barrage of tweets about Democrats, Muslims, Liberals, Obama, and Donald Trump (and calling a Vietnam Veteran a traitor) are some real gems that really drive home what a winner Eric really is. Such as his charming tweet calling women "ungrateful creatures towards us men." and claiming "They're never pleased."




In response to an article regarding the number of migrants arriving in Europe this year, Eric declared it's "Time to let the lead fly." which we can only interpret as being a call to violence in the form of gunfire.



CMPC has since deleted their tweet announcing him, but we have it saved here, where they call him "amazing".


Just so you know what to look forward to.



Wonder why.

You can enjoy this family-friendly convention's last year from August 31 to September 1, 2018 at the Utah Valley Convention Center in Provo, Utah.


How did he get approved in the first place?

  1. THIS IS CLEARLY MORE FAKE NEWS SPREAD BY HORSE NEWS AND THE HACKER KNOWN AS 4CHAN

  2. It's funny how quick the conheads were to let Eric go once this hit HN.

    I'm staff and none of the conheads ever take care of anything this fast. Nothing. It's almost as if they were either expecting this to happen or they're watching HN closely. My money is on both.

    1. I highly doubt horse news is what caused the change. To illustrate my point, if they really care so much about what is posted on HN, they would have done something publicly about the previous post concerning the vendor situation.

    2. Their way of dealing with everything else that's happening right now is to plug their ears and pretend like nothing is wrong and hope that nobody else says anything until the convention closes next Saturday. They won't tell you that they opened up the vendor hall to the public for free as a result of horrible pre-registration. No it's because they have tons of money and this has nothing to do with the fact that they are freaking out over the pre-registration numbers. That they know the outlook isn't good for attendance and vendor sales and are hoping that the badge sales during the con make up for it.

      Those of us who have seen the numbers know how bad it is. They care. A lot. When the last article came out there was nothing but panic for days in the various chats before they decided to just give it the silent treatment. They couldn't avoid not doing anything with this situation because they already look bad enough as is so they couldn't afford to stay silent.

      Given what's happened so far, I believe it.

  3. That or TekCharlie rallied his little twitter mob to directly harass/bully CMPC convention head into compliance with their left-wing hugbox ideals.

    This is some fucking wrongthink witchhunt bullshit, and you fucking know it Capper. Acting like this is in anyway ok is retarded.

  4. Everything is perfectly fine with CMPC! We have boatloads of money!
    We wiped the budgets of all our departments clean to pay for VIPs and con head rooms so that they can all party together
    We can't afford to help staff pay for hotel rooms to prevent some of them from driving up to 2 hours in each direction daily
    We can't buy snacks or drinks for our volunteers and they still have to buy their own shirts
    We've had to tell musicians we can't pay for their transport after we agreed to
    We're trying to overfill our vendor hall and had to get rid of the guy who tried to stand up to management for that decision
    We've operated in the black every year of this conversation because of our horrible finance decisions
    We've lost the trust of most the community because they finally see through our bullshit. In fact we can't even scam then out of their money through indiegogo or gofundme like we used to because they caught on
    We treat most staffers like shit and wonder why we don't have the same volunteers each year
    We're totally not panicking because things like this have been reported before or because the truth is finally getting out

    But we have tons of money! CMPC 2018 is going to be our finest year yet!

    Ohh and by the way it's our last year. Because the community is dead. Or it's Stephen Wintre's fault. Or some random staff member's fault. This decision has nothing to do with our inexperienced con heads or our decision to try and get the biggest names possible even though we are in the negative every time we start planning for the next year which we didn't really start doing until April of this year.

    See you at #CMPC2018!

  5. I meant to say we're operating in the red every year of this convention because of our horrible finance decisions. In the RED.

    Gosh darn that proofreader of mine. It must be his fault my comment was posted with that typo. It was probably him who brought on Eric too.

  6. Believe me, they'll basically invite anyone as a community guest as long as you ask and you'll do free shit for them.
    There was even one animator they accepted a couple years back who had a ton of non family friendly content on his YouTube. He was added by guilt tripping his ex, who was on staff. He'd even send staff members messages like "if I didnt have this job, I'd kill myself."
    I wasnt even sure if they fired him or not. He just disappeared and I havent hesrd news on him related to the con since.

    But yeah, you can get invited to the con and long as you're willing to do any free shit for them. Eric did a lot of art for them, obviously. It's funny how they basically give them this community guest badge as payment, and then use all their actual money to pay for larger guests to just show up.

    1. Have you read the giant CMPC thread on /mlp/? This sort of thing was mentioned and anon put it best when they said that CMPC couldn't care less about the local community and were willing to screw them over just to get the bigger guests. Mentally. Financially. It didn't matter. Some community guests were treated just as bad as staff.

      Many left including the art lead from last year who came on board and tried to do an amazing job but was constantly blocked by the con heads at every turn. She got sick of it and is only vending this year. The funny part is the person they originally had her replace became the art lead this year. That person was well known for not doing her job and blaming others when her own mistakes caused issues. I guess that's a good fit for the con heads.

    2. Yeah, I knew about that too. They seem to even have a hard time firing people, as I know one of the people causing a fuss, including to the art lead last year, was never fired. She was known around the staff to be a bad staff member, and who constantly tried to one-up the art lead, and was constantly trying to force people to give her assignments, and told people they were bad at their job if they didn't do things the way she wanted. If she did it wrong, she'd blame the rest of the staff. She even managed to screw up the community guest and special badges so badly that the conheads received numerous complaints about it. She even completely FORGOT to do the badge for one of the cons most frequent guests, and then blamed the rest of the staff.
      Hell, I'm pretty sure the only reason she's still on board is because the current art lead is her older sister.

    1. Pikapetey's meme was old and stupid years ago. It's so old and stupid that not even he does it anymore. This, and the fact that your caps lock is apparently stuck on, combined with your use of retard and gay as insults (things Tumblr does not approve of) tells me that you're about thirteen years old and a frequent user of 4chan.

      Tell us, why don't you, what it's like to giggle every time you read the word penis. I bet your super mature answer will fascinate everyone.

  11. CMPC is this Friday and things are really really bad internally. Pre registration numbers haven't improved at all. Panelists and community guests are dropping. Conheads are lying to vendors and staff about registration numbers to prevent them from getting freaked out. A lot of people have managed to get refunds for their Pre registration tickets but most vendors are having no luck.

    Any registration number they give you is completely false. They're doing what they usually do every year which is to count staff and VIP and anyone who helps with the con. That's how they get their Pre registration numbers.

    No word on who con heads plan to blame for this.

  12. thank you for sharing information. i like your blog

  13. Update: Con was shit.

    Location of cheaper hotel option was several blocks away from convention center.
    Parking was worthless. If you didn't get one of the 15 spots in the convention center parking lot early in the morning, you had to park as far as 8 blocks away.
    Building floor plan was garbage. If you parked in the convention center parking lot or were walking over from either hotel, you had to walk halfway around the building to get to an escalator or an elevator that would take you to the 2nd floor, then walk around the building to take another elevator or escalator to the 3rd/4th floor where everything was happening.
    The layout was also garbage and made no sense.
    Trusted anon sources estimate that attendee count is as low as 150 and as high as 250-350.
    Main events were a joke. Low numbers for charity auction and closing ceremonies.
    Many panelists were no-shows. Most panels that did happen were boring and worthless.
    Some attendees who were there on Friday decided not to go on Saturday.
    Refunds were still being requested during the con.
    Most vendors didn't make enough to cover their costs and some are talking about taking action to recoup.
    It was clear that most departments were gutted out of all their budgets to pay for VIPs. The game room is a great example.
    Original schedule was never updated on website and was inaccurate. The person in charge of updating the schedule on the website spent most of the weekend hanging out with con heads and VIPs.
    Con heads somehow agreed to a feedback panel where they promptly put the blame on everyone else.

    1. Oh and I forgot to mention. In an attempt to try and make back as much as possible at the very last minute the con heads opened their doors to the public for free immediately after the last VIP panel and right before the charity auction. It didn't work.
