I think it would be good for anyone serching the wiki to have one central page where the most popular or unique shippings are listed so if someone askes "Are Pinkie Pie and Pokey Pierce ever shipped" they can have a place to see if said characters are shipped and if there are any fan-fictions on the subject. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bronyman (talkcontribs) 22:26, April 7, 2012

In this fandom, everyone gets shipped with everyone by at least one person. I don't think such a central list would be very useful. But I have nothing against listing common ships on the respective character pages, or a page on shipping in general (if it is long enough). --Tulipclaymore 22:36, April 7, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, while I don't think compiling a list of all the ships would be possible (someone once made a gigantic table containing every possible ship, and its name; trust me, it was huge), it would probably be good to add some of the more common ships to the respective articles, such as FlutterDash, AppleDash, or Twixie. -- This is Jonny Manz, signing off! 01:20, April 8, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, clicking on the link Lightsaber Guy posted just now, I see that that table is exactly what I remembered. Cool, glad to know where to find it now. -- This is Jonny Manz, signing off! 01:21, April 8, 2012 (UTC)
I would like to see distinct articles about popular shippings so that their discussion does not clutter individual character articles. Particularly because doing so just duplicates content. If listing the shipping and just linking to the page about it was done, it could be more easily monitored, and discussion about it would be uniform instead of having different things said on each character page.
First a uniform naming scheme for such pages would be necessary though. I think something like "Apple x Banana" where we will always list the names in alphabetical order no matter what.
Also in the original MLP opening does anyone know the name of the orange pony who looks like Applejack who is licking the white unicorn who looks like rarity? Did not think of this couple until now. They DID have a feud related to a guy before... could be fuel. talk2ty 06:19, July 27, 2014 (UTC)
