Let's talk hypotheticals for a sec.
Let's say -- Celestia forbid -- DHX could no longer afford to put out full-length seasons of MLP. But before the brony masses froth at the mouth and arm themselves with pitchforks and torches, DHX promises more MLP in some shape or form, just not as grand a form as before. What shape/form would you want it to take that would still satisfy you?
Direct-to-video media? As in the full-length pony movies we've always wanted? How about minisodes/webisodes to be put out on a more frequent basis?
If regular episodes were out of the question, how would you like to get your pony fix?
