Custom site skins!

Ever since I signed up for a neopets account almost six years ago for the sole purpose of learning html through the 'pet pages', I've been interested in fiddling with the look & feel of websites. Today, I randomly decided to make a more modern and sleek style skin for MLP Forums. Here's a preview of what the front page and a topic look like:             (Edit: A lot has been updated since these screenshots, including the main banner. Here's a quick preview.) If you'd like to give i

It's my lucky day!

I am so very surprised, grateful, and humbled to be where I am today. The   ONE MILLIONTH visiter to MLP Forums! We've come a long way since the very beginnings, and I'm glad to be able to win a fantastic apple product.

Depressed?

I've seen a lot of posts - and I'm sure you have too - from people who seem to be depressed or otherwise feeling bogged down by life.   Some of them get responses from people who truly seem to want to help. If you are one of those people - one who wants to help - I suggest watching this video. It's cheesy, yes, but it's got an important message.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Evwgu369Jw   Be empathetic, not sympathetic. I don't want your sympathy, I want to not feel alone in my despair

Get to know Barack Obama a bit better

So, like, Obama is all up in here. Yo.   Instead of sending cruise missiles at Syria, I sent my economic advisors.     In my spare time I like to listen in on your phone conversations.     So like, I'm gonna skip this dizzle. Peace to the homies, and the home-dogs. The homie-dogs.

Deception, Totalitarianism, and MLP Forums

I would like to start out with an apology. An apology to the staff, and to the members of these forums.   Members, I'm sorry I've held this information back from you for so long.   Staff, I'm sorry, but I can't let you fulfill your plans.   Leaked for the first time, a private staff Skype chat:     I leave you, the community, with this information. Meanwhile, I shall attempt to ride a unicycle to the top of Mt. Everest.

Moony eats chocolate

So these little Dove chocolates have inspirational little quips in the bottom of them. Let's take a look at a few.   Feel the sun on your face.       Believe in yourself.       It's definitely a bubble bath day.       Daydream.       Clear your mind and enjoy this moment.       Believe in yourself.     Smile before bed. You'll sleep better.         Give yourself a holiday.       Believe in yourself.     I guess they're not all unique

Moon Moon answers 140 random questions

So a lot of people have been answering questions lately. I thought I'd give it a go.   1:Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? A: I don't have a closet in my dorm, but in my old room I never bothered to close it.   2:Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel? A: I usually hide them throughout the room. Makes it interesting to be the next one along. ^.^   3:Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out? A: They're usually a crazy mess.   4:Have you ever

Why Rainbow Falls was so disappointing

I made a rant-y post on another forum, and thought I would share it here because this episode makes me unhappy.   Rainbow Falls was really disappointing to me.   Take Wonderbolt Academy (A really good episode!), water down the moral, make Dashie's show-long story's goal sound like a bad idea, and add an idiotically out of proportion blob of a pony who doesn't belong in the show - what do you have? Rainbow Falls.   Let's take these one at a time. I'll talk about the Wonderbolts first becaus

How to find an old post of yours in a large thread

Ever seen a large thread marked with a star that says you've posted in it before and wanted to look it up? There's not really a good way to search by author within a thread. It's easy to do in a more general range with the advanced search, but unfortunately this isn't much help here.   Scene: I want to post in the "Favorite Songs from the Show" thread, but it says I already have. Well, it must have been months ago so I don't really remember it and I feel like updating my views. Unfortunately,

More fan music I like

I did this last summer, and since then I've found some more music. So I'll just drop these here. Like last time, only the first two will be embedded; the rest of them will be linked so you'll have to click to listen. (I know I know, so terrible).   Hope you find something you like.   1. High on Sound - DJ Pon-3 Dubstep http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLTtRRDuJHU   2. Jealousy (Synthis Remix) - Feather Electro / Dubstep   3. Magic - David Larsen Orchestral   4. The Anthology III

The Pixar Theory

If you haven't heard of this yet, read on. Taken from this website for your convenience. Thoughts at the end.   14th-15th Century, Brave   It all starts with Merida discovering "the-will-of-the-wisps" (magic). The Magic turns her mother into a bear. This magic is why animals and inanimate objects (brooms & tools) behave like humans. Magic was utilized by a witch, who mysteriously vanishes through wooden doors.   Eventually the Magic from the will of the wisps would lead to the birth of

Season 4 Episode 3: A Picture Review (Spoilerrific!)

Spoilers of course. My initial thoughts / review. Screenshots and other fun stuff.     Just as I had hoped, the box/keys seem to be the theme for the whole season. Also, why is Spike feather dusting with the room in this condition? Gotta clean up them books first, Spike.     Not the last time I thought "Poor Spike" this episode. I really have enjoyed Spike more this season so far as compared to previously in the show.     Ahhh! Right after I mention I'm interested in this place,

Season 4 Episodes 1+2: A Picture Review (Spoilerrific!)

Spoilers, of course. My disjointed initial thoughts below with some low quality screenshots!     Snips and Snails, what are you doing in the intro? Snips and Snails, no one likes you. Snips and Snails, go away.     Luna: "I'm a princess too!11!!!1 I can haz see!"     Scootaloo shows up in picture? Vampire headcanon ruined.     This part made me a little sad. Heck, a lot sad. I've felt it before too, my best friends moving away. That feel.     You are welcome for this sc

A couple fun facts about MLP Forums and S4 (No Spoilers)

Two random things.   1. The amount of replies to the S3 Premier thread on the first day total is roughly equal to the amount of replies on the S4 Premier thread within an hour of the two-parter ending.   2. At the time this blog was posted, the thread has been averaging about 2.5 replies per minute since the first episode began for a total of over 300 in two hours.   We've grown.

Breaking: David Ortiz on the juice?

Here's a bit of backstory to the current events:   On July 30, 2009, The New York Times reported that Ortiz and then-teammate Manny Ramirez were among a group of over 100 major league players on a list compiled by the federal government, that allegedly tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs during 2003 survey testing. Five months before the Times allegations surfaced, Ortiz stated in an interview that players who tested positive for steroids should be suspended for an entire season. B
