I don't really understand why they'd drop the name, but I really like the new voice.

Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

Giving in to the complaining minority only validates their complaints. I mean, if calling her Derpy had been a legal issue and they just cut out her name I would have understood why they did it, but changing her voice is just too much. Not to mention how badly recorded Dash's new lines sound. There was never any reason to change anything, and this proves why.

Not only the changing of her voice, not even the removal of her name, but in some shots they seem to have even straightened her eyes. That's low, Hasbro.

Not sure if this is official and Hasbro/DHX's work or a quick digital edit by iTunes staff. A shame they had to do this, but I honestly don't mind the "new" Derpy voice sounds a lot like the popular fanon voice, especially since Tabitha voiced Derpy thinking she was male, a changed voice makes sense.

You know what, as long as Deroy doesn't talk or have her name mentioned any more down the line, I don't even care about this new version, we can all just pretend it never happened and be happier for it.

WHAT THE FUCK! I redownloaded it and now I have thing THING talking. Rainbow Dash doesn't even sound right any more. If they were going to change her voice they could of at least put some effort into it. These VAs (if they're even the originals which I doubt) sound like they're phoning it in with none of the passion they normally have. I have the original on another system and I'll keep that.

Yeah, it sounds like they had Ashleigh record her new lines on my laptop microphone or something. This all seems like something you would expect from a cheap fake and not something official from Hasbro.

Right now, the best we can do is calm down, wait for official word from the people working on the show (hopefully Thiessen says something) and spread the original version of The Last Roundup around through Streisand Effect.

Though I would like to know which people complained in the first place and if they've ever seen a Disney cartoon with Goofy in their life. Just saying.

I'll let your opinion on Derpy's voice stand but you can not tell me Rainbow Dash doesn't sound like a soulless automaton now.

Do you think the real Derpy was banished, thrown into a dungeon, or thrown into a dungeon in the place Celestia banished her to?

In my mind, we already had one with S2E11-S2E13 airing out of order.

Well, in my mind, anyway... I think I'm the only one who cared, or even noticed. I'd love to spread the word to the Internet at large, but the few times I've tried I just get shut down, typically. I can't really point to any canon, because the iTunes numbers changed after the fact, "Hearth's Warming Eve" is constantly skipped in rebroadcasting (and "Luna Eclipsed", for some reason - why put all these holiday episodes in Season 2 if you won't air them?), and while the episodes on The Hub's site use the correct numbering, Hasbro can't be bothered to keep said episode up on their site for more than a week at a time (the best I've got are these thumbnail leftovers, and I doubt I'll turn any heads with that). Lord knows I've waited this long for some kind of bone to be thrown my way, but nope... The whole thing kind of makes me really depressed, honestly. :(

...anyway, Derpy. I actually think I prefer the new VA, although the lines are a bit phoned-in, I suppose. Butch Derpy really didn't work in my head, honestly... Also, aside from Rainbow's "careful" line, her lines sound pretty much the same. She only mentioned Derpy's name in that one line anyway... Still, if you're miffed at the executive meddling here, welcome to my world. Season One wasn't this mishandled, was it?

I just hope no one at Studio B got in trouble for Derpy, seeing as how Hasbro evidently thought enough of the issue to go back and edit the episode.

Doesn't bode well for future Derpy cameos. Playing spot-the-Derpy each almost every episode has been such a fun little touch this season.

I wouldn't mind if they just changed the voice (though I had no problem with her original voice), but removing her name and underping her eyes is just low.

I bet this will raise a much bigger shitstorm among bronies than her actual appearance did.

Well the fandom has already found it's first target. This women was apparently pretty vocal about Derpy. Her Deviant Art page is currently under assault by angry bronies. I can't say I agree with this, but I suppose it's better than harassing Faust or one of the other creators.

It's human nature. Love and Tolerate sounds good in theory but it doesn't always work in practice. I'm still pretty pissed about the whole affair but I'm passed most of anger, I'm sure these people will get passed it too. The person being harassed actually doesn't seem to mind, earlier this month she commented on how she loved all the extra traffic due to her complaints about Derpy.

Phew, wi-fi. Just caught up with the news and I'm not going to respond to people individually because I'm already neglecting the chat and I don't want to make enemies, especially on Deviant Art. This isn't a tragedy and people really ought to stop treating it as such or as some weird act of censorship targeted at the fans. The character and the scene still exist - and will do for the future, so people flaming Yamino despite her history should just stop being asses.

Myself, I'm more concerned with anything happening to the team working on the show, not a fan name being snipped out on an iTunes download.

Aha, that makes sense. I see the journal of the guy working on the show and wonder if it'll make any difference. Sad that things had to change, but it's a whole lot of trouble over nothing IMO.

Ed: About the threats, guy's probably a troll.

And about the topic in question, I'm surprised they actually took the time to "fix" the issue instead of the traditional: remove it and forget it.

On the other hand, it's quite disappointing that this problem was handled in such a way. Maybe, someday, people will understand that dialog and transparency are always the best damn tools to handle pretty much any issue.

From what I have been reading, no one exactly knows what the hell happened (angry parents?, angry fans?, overly PC policies on iTunes?, etc.), and those who know are keeping all the info for themselves.

That happened (and some parents write too, IIRC), but as usual, we are in the dark about what actually motivated the change. (Whatever it was It had to be quite relevant, considering that the change wasn't free)
