Re: the maths As a working hypothesis, let's assume that there are 90 pegasi in Rainbow Dash's team.
- Rainbow Dash's goal is to beat the Fillydelphia's record of 910 wing power, so she says that everypony needs to achieve at least 10 wing power. (910 / 90 = 10.11; meeting tho goal would give them a good chance at beating the record - for instance, Rainbow Dash herself has 16.5 wp.)
- She hopes that they'd be able to beat 1000 wp. Of course, that would require them to take their training Up to Eleven - requiring the average power of 1000 / 90 = 11.11.
- But eight pegasi have fallen sick and are in no condition to fly; plus, Fluttershy refused to fly (because she hasn't reached anywhere near 10 wing power). With only 81 team members, she won't be able to beat the record, and Twilight Sparkle correctly noted that they'd be lucky if they gather even the minimum 800 wp needed. Indeed, they only reached 795 wp before the tornado broke down. (795 / 81 = 9.81, [substracting Rainbow Dash leaves 778.5 / 80 = 9.73 average power of the rest] - obviously, not all pegasi have reached Rainbow Dash's goal [Fluttershy for one didn't]; or they may not be in full condition.)

Goddammit, whoever keeps checking off the edit, QUIT IT FOR FUCK'S SAKE!

It's something that always happens when the episode airs. Lots and lots of tropers trying to edit the same page at one time. You just have to be patient and persistent.

but that doesn't excuse keeping the lock for over an hour while not adding anything

I'm new to this, but for the page image, I vote for using the white muscle pegasus. I smile whenever I see him.

Usually the page image matches the summary and indicates the main character and/or focus of the story.
06:07:33 PM Mar 24th 2012
In that case, might I suggest an image of Fluttershy being teased in flight camp?
09:14:00 PM Mar 24th 2012
OH. Well then I'm with Omni Sonic.
02:16:29 PM Mar 24th 2012
Is there a trope for the animals in the forest all wearing Pony masks to help Fluttershy get over her fear of being watched/ridiculed by others?

A bit OT, but did anyone the muscled-up white pegasus/Roid Rage remind anyone else of Scott Steiner?

Do you think this is the writers trying to make up for the significant lack of Fluttershy episodes for most of season 2, by giving us two within a month of each other? Whether it is or isn't, I am happy!

Its not uncommon for characters to get focus episodes two weeks in a row or close to it. Rarity didn't have that many focus episodes until the later half of Season 1, we just had two Applejack episodes a couple of weeks back. But yes its Fluttershy's time for Character Development!
02:58:39 PM Feb 27th 2012
I know! I'm happy to see the team looking to expand upon the characters a bit. That not only tells us that they may be settling in to keep the show up and running for a while, but it means we'll get some more depth to our already in depth characters! Hooray for people doing children's shows correctly!

I'm pretty sure they had only a vague idea what order the episodes would be in while they were making them, and coincidentally the Fluttershy episodes just happen to be near the end of the season.
