  1. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has given many of us years of entertainment, laughs, tears, friends, and memories. This project will be our way of saying thank you to the show staff, Hasbro, and even the characters. This project will be compiled into three categories. General Thank You (Video or Audio) - A simple statement of you saying "Thank You" Responding to a Prompt - There will be several questions or prompts that you can create a video to reply to. Dear <Insert Character> Letters - This is a text entry of you writing to a character on the show in the same style as how Twilight would write to Celestia. Here you can talk about what the character means to you or thank them for teaching you something. These text files can be uploaded as an audio file or you can opt to have an individual on staff read them for inclusion. https://mlpforums.com/event-team/thank-you-project/ Above is the submission system for videos, audio, and letters. You may do one or all three. Around the airing of the finale a final edited video of all of these submissions will be posted here, submitted to EqD, and also sent to show staff directly as I have a few on DM. This is your thanks to say thank you, and maybe tell them how the show changes your life. Below are several prompts that will help you if you decide to make a video file. If you decided audio, please submit your OC as well so that there is a visual to go along with your voice. Please try and submit clean audio only as it is hard to hear you if you are talking into a potato. Video / Audio questions How did you discover Friendship is Magic? What does being in the fandom mean to you? Have you made friends do to the show and community that came from it? What is your favorite memory of the show? What is your favorite memory of the fandom? If you could shake the hand of any of the creative team behind My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, who would it be? Favorite character / Best Pony Favorite Episode Favorite Song Favorite Lesson Finally for those that record an audio or video reply, please end with a short statement of thanks. It can be general, to a part of the DHX team, or to a specific staff/crew. If a question doesn’t apply there isn’t a need to answer it.
  2. Effective today we will start releasing the new rank badges, and the first new addition to the rank badge system in years is Reformed Changeling This is unlocked now my reaching 1500 posts, basically the rank after Evil Changeling. This is requiring some adjustment to the surrounding ranks so post count requirements will be adjusted to allow the new ranks to be added. Since some of the users have already passed this threshold several times over, we have decided to make this the default badge for a a few days, something that we will do for each new rank announced, culminating in the 10,000 post rank. When all ranks have been added we will start working on the process to allow users to move down to other rank badges if they prefer to stay at a specific rank. This was one of the MCM stretch goals and I'm glad we can start revealing these now.
  3. I think that we have been pretty good with spoilers lately with all the airings. With Aussies airing the finale by the 9th of September now is the best time to remind you all that we will not be nice about spiking the show before the US airdate. ANYTHING that confirms ANYTHING in the last three episodes must be in the Season 9 Spoilers forum. That means no references in a post, blog, or status update. I don’t care if you put a spoiler tag or not, sometimes the area loads before the tag hides the text or image. No titles should contain any spoilers even if it’s posted in the Spoiler Forum. No art. No fics. No vlogs and reviews. I’m sending out this message to all active users via email, making sure Buffy and our Welcome PM states this as well. Don’t be that guy. Don’t ruin the end for others that want to wait. And by not being nice, I mean that any spoilers about the last episodes made outside of the Season 9 Spoilers can carry a temp ban until the US airing is over. That is all.
  4. Many of you may not be aware, but we have long had a system in use to allow Forum Artists to take Commissions from users on MLPF. What you may not know is the importance to the Commissions system in keeping MLPF running. Without subscribers, donors, the artists, and the patrons of our artists, MLPF would not be able to keep its lights on. We personally thank each and every one of you. We also want to offer an apology. While we have tried to create a fair system for all of the above, there have long been opportunities for improvement with respect to how staff can better recognize and support the users who financially support us. This is why we are currently evaluating many options to thank those who help keep us afloat. We have dropped the ball in creating an easy and effective storefront for commissions. That will be the first focus and here are some things that we are in the process of working on (like this second). Commissions The store front is being redesigned visually as well as reorganized. It will also be a LOT easier to access. The link to the Store is hard to find here. Yeah, we have a forum that acts as a way for the commissions artist to update routinely, but the shops themselves leave a lot to be desired. This is completely on us. I am going to each artist and will be working with them one-on-one to create a pleasing and personalized shop. It looks bland, uninformative, and just plain ugly. We owe the artists better than that. If you all want to follow along with the progress, the store front can be seen here. I am also going to be launching a separate area where someone who doesn't want to engage a bunch of artists independently can post a request allowing an available artists to approach them for a commission. Some artists have the ability to have prints made up. We want the store fronts to be able to accommodate that as well. This is on the horizon. Finally, we are going to actively promote your shops on our social media platform and on here. Dead Shops URGENT the store has a bunch of old shops of artists that have not be active. I’ve reached out to many artists, but will be removing ones that have cobwebs or the users haven’t been here in a long while. If you find your store gone send me a PM and I’ll drop what I’m doing and fix it. Marketplace So I suspect that this may interest a few of you. We are looking at having an area where users can sell their pony merch to other users. Some may want to do this ongoing, and some may be trying to sell things to raise some quick cash. We know how to open a system like this, but we need to know if there is any interest in this idea. I would personally like for our store front to mirror a convention's Vendor Hall, which includes people who sell toys, CCG, models, games, etc. Like the commission shop there would be a processing percentage of 15%, however we would effectively work closer with the sellers to help them create a decent shop, as well as some assistance in marketing their shop. We do want to know who would be interested in buying or selling on a system like this ... either now or in the future. There is a poll for you to vote on .... just a simple "I like this idea" "Won't use something like this" Subs and Donors You are next. Trust me .... we haven't forgotten you all ... but that will come later this month. Staffing The Administrators are currently the individuals who have traditionally staffed something like this, however, we will be looking at bringing on someone who can volunteer as Artist/Vendor Relations. I will be looking at internal staffers first, but if anyone is interested in this sort of position feel free to PM me and Path @Jeric @PathfinderCS
  5. This is the thread to talk about your experiences of BC and what it meant. Linking to blogs is also acceptable. Mine will come in a day as I need to find the proper words to describe the indescribable. I’ll share this small thing. You know why you came when a friend looks you in the eye with tears welling and says how they feel about your friendship with an earnest and sincere outpouring of love. This happened as I bid farewell to @Troblems who epitomized all five elements of harmony on this trip. The individual and three way embraces that were shared were a cap on a such a magnificent week that I’m still going to smile and cry each time I think back on this moment ... a simple 60 seconds that will be felt for my entire life. Small things can have a high impact and penetrate the soul.

  7. Do any of you realize how long I've been sitting here, biding my time? Do any of you realize how many frivolous events, redundant status updates and dead end topics I've been forced to endure, in the name of finding out what's really been going on with my hive as of late? Don't answer that. If you're a changeling, then you know why I'm here, and you'd better read on if you don't expect a scolding in person, later. If you're not a changeling, please disregard this message, as it does not apply to you. If you are a changeling, metamorphised or otherwise, you are to get your shimmering tails off this site, and back home, at once. What started as a benign hobby has grown out of control. Chores and duties around the hive are getting neglected left and right. Two days ago another surprise Maulwurf attack on our hive, and I barely had five warm bodies fighting with me. After investigating the matter, I've found that this place is to blame. This community, so saturated with positivity, has attracted changelings like moths to the flame. Worse still, it keeps them here, distracting them with commemorative badges and other useless trinkets, rewarding further engagement. I've had it. A changelings' priorities start with their hive, not some frilly, online social community. That is all. If you do not return home, or otherwise notify me of your intended return within two days, I will come and find you. Trust me, you do not want me to come and find you.
  8. Twilight finally doesn't freak out for the first time in a long while. I wonder if she won't freak out when the Villainous League makes their presence known. By the way, using deductive reasoning from the credits, that panicking lead weather Pegasus that has appealed to me I suspect is named Feather Flatterfly. Who did all the Twilighting for her instead. He gets a lot of comfort hugs from me. Before I get to work, let me address the elephant in the room: The few Ponies who saw Cozy Glow. In their defense, you should think about how Tirek seems to be holding back from sucking ALL the life force from the ponies. The victims cutie marks didn't disappear so it's likely because Tirek is only taking enough to make a pony feel weak and disoriented. The end flat out points out that Tirek had to give back the energies he's stolen to cover their tracks. And I believe that one guard was about to put the pieces together that a dangerous filly like Cozy was out of prison but since he had his energy sucked out before he could fully do something, Woosh! Out went his life force and his train of thought. I personally think Chrysalis might have in disguise convinced the affected energy-deprived ponies that they were a bit tired from working a bit too hard and that they were seeing things. It's not a strong explanation, but it's still an explanation nonetheless. And just because the Terrible Trio managed to get past all the security measures, it doesn't mean our heroes are stupid or anything. Just that the villains were thinking much more strategically. Like a good game of chess. But the most important thing I found about this episode is that both our heroes and villians succeeded. The Ponies got to put on the best Final Summer Sun Celebration despite the setbacks. Twilight surprisingly kept calm throughout the whole chaos and I agree with Discord. It really does seem like they might be ready for whatever comes next And as Chrysalis said, it was never about ruining the celebration. It was about the Terrible Trio learning to work together. Their team up got them Grogar's bell behind his back and now a book that might tell them how to use it. All in all, this has been one of the best episodes where everyone benefits.

    Is it ok that I still don’t care for Twilight’s castle? I miss the library.
  10. Always have to work in a way to make fun of me in front of everycreature, don't you? I'll have you know that I've already been keeping a close eye on all the changelings, here. I keep up to date with them and we discuss aspects of MLPF that the hive could potentially adopt, for the better. The hive, even now is not perfect, Pharynx, we're always looking for ways to improve. If it'll take you off this warpath you have, I'll put together a squad to return to the hive, this week, and help you catch up on chores. We can discuss things looking forward, from there. A huge thank you to everyone, especially the staff for entertaining my brother's abrupt announcement! I know it's out of place and kinda blunt but, he has good intentions. I guess, for the time being you'll see both of us around the forums here and there.

  12. Oh, I did this wrong, I have always been a fan of MLP, ever since gen 1. So when gen 4 came around, it just opened the fandom up all over again!! It was fantasmigorical!!!
  13. Tirek saving the bird that got swept in Shining’s turbine is a nice callback to Frenemies. He may be evil, but that growth comes forward here.

    Someone needs to make this a special or movie.
  15. Hi all! My name is Jessie and I am a 26 year old American living in Tokyo, Japan. I currently attend Japanese language school and I work as a Japanese TV/Film actor and commercial print model. I’ve been a fan of MLP since 2012 and my favorite pone is Cadance. Nice to meet you guys!

    Just hit my 1100 post goal on my 4th Forumversary. When I first joined the Forums, I never thought I'd actually hit a number that high, but here we are now. I probably wouldn't still be on the Forums without all of you guys, so I'm going to give my thanks to all of the people who follow me, plus a few extras. So first off, 碇 シンジン, Who I can't tag due to special characters in their name. Thanks for being my first friend/follower on the Forums all those years ago. Next we have: @Tacodidra, @The Recherche, @Lord Valtasar, @The_Gobo. You 4 are the ones who always reply/replied to my Status Updates, thus being the ones I always seem to find myself talking to the most. So thanks for always being there, otherwise I'd just be typing to myself. To @Rikifive for thinking I was leaving last year on my Forumversary, because I posted in the Welcome Center. I dunno either, but thanks for the amusement. To @Kawaii Besu, @Messy Mane, @Gone Airbourne, @Sonic Shimmer. Thanks for having such great taste in music, and indirectly helping get my playlist to 1400 songs. Okay, this next one is the big section: @Anti-Villain, @Button Feri, @DivineSoul1000, @Gabosor, @Lunar Echo, @lyrabetes3939, @Nsxile, @nx9100, @Phosphor, @Storm Shine and @TheRockARooster. Thank you all for following me back when I followed you without saying a word, and sometimes barely having any interaction at all with you. On the opposite side of the spectrum: @GlimGlam, @creativeunicorn, @JamesBobbyDReed, @Krashface, @Christmas cheer. Thank you guys for following me without saying anything to me. Finally thanks to: @Cwanky, @Denim&Venom, @Trottermare Galamane, @Dawnchaser, for being genuinely cool people. I'm sorry if I missed anyone, but after 4 years and meeting thousands of users, I'm bound to miss a few. So with that all out of the way, to those who are still here that I mentioned, here's to another year.
  18. It is time. For the rank that only matters. Griffin master race represent.

  21. Title: A Trivial Pursuit Air Date: August 17, 2019 Written By: Brittany Jo Flores Synopsis: Twilight's hopes of keeping her Trivia Trot winning streak alive are waylaid when she is paired up with Pinkie Pie, who has never been to a trivia night before.
  22. l love my little pony and lm interested in making new friends i didnt know how to introduce myself so here ya go
  23. My OC was created in MSPaint last year (December of 2018) in MSPaint, by mistake. I was drawing freehand with the mouse. I had previously drawn what I would look like in Equestria Girls style, but I had an idea to make the pony version more "crazy hair", and because of mistakes with the mouse, I got a look that almost spoke directly back to me as being an independent drawing not drawn by myself (I have never experienced that before). In the Equestria Girls version, I had chosen to use the psychopath eyes style (that is eyes you can find in Anime/Manga that have tiny pupils, usually really evil guys (Zarbon when he goes mad, Android 17 in the later part of the series, etc). But what if you put those eyes on a pony? And Splashee was born (even before his name was invented, which was much later). The first drawings are my Vector Art (click on them for larger views). They are all done in Adobe Illustrator so that I can export them in any dimensions ever possible, and with any effects applied afterwards: The other drawings you have seen around are drawn in Adobe Photoshop. Except for the animated profile picture, which was drawn and animated in a pixel/palette program called GraphicsGale (used to do pixel art for retro games, it's free and the best palette managing program you can find). Here is Splashee as a duck for the Role Play (Transformation Time!) which I am part of: Last we have the fun one. Here I am speed drawing Splashee (blank flank, because the cutie mark is not friendly to draw by hand) from a nice side view. The speed is 400% the normal, and the video takes 5 minutes of your time: Other than that, Splashee's name is fun to pronounce, and fun to draw! Any OC related information can be found in the RP Character Sheets on the forum

    Good morning everypony. How's it going? Welcome to the weekend! It looks like the weather pone was nice enough to bring me the sun today!
  27. Wow. I cannot believe the speed at which this has gone off the rails. To those few changelings who've responded thus far, thank you for actually following orders. As for the rest, I'll reach them some other way. Clearly a big, obvious announcement wasn't the way to go, here - attracted too much unwanted attention and antics from non-changelings. You should all expect to see me around again. Regardless what my thoughts are of this place, I need to ensure my charges' safety, and unfortunately that means keeping an eye on them here until I can restore order in my hive. Besides, somebody has to keep @Thorax out of trouble. Can't teach this twit to be cautious of anything with rainbows and hugs. He smells love and comes running. Kinda like a golden retriever, really, except more green.
  28. (Okay, so hopefully I posted this in the right place). -- Okay, so basically you just write 7 completely random facts about yourself. Thought this would be fun to do, so that we can make some new friends online. Yay! I'll start- My real name is Olivia I really enjoy pop music I have lived in 3 different countries (South Africa, Switzerland, USA). My favorite colors are hot pink and black I love collecting mugs I am very picky I want to be a teacher
