  1. Hi Shimmer. We are in the midst of a lot of behind the scenes work; there will be quite a few things we are doing and trying (since our current methods dont appear to be attracting much attention) but a lot of it is in the air at the moment. I will be coming back in to post when we have further confirmation and information, but do feel free to ask if anything piques your interest. Thanks!
  2. Happy birthday Sweeps! ^^

  5. Hi there! If you wish to, we have a small selection currently on Teespring; ordering a shirt off there supports the artist who drew it, Poniverse and the GoG!
  6. Hi! You may wish to take a look here to put that request up:
  7. Not of my concern, but you sound as if you would want to "follow" the Life Advice area.

  8. Hi @Lupus, do you want to shoot me a PM and talk about it? Id be happy to chat with you.
  9. Thats exactly right! And if you dont have artwork to provide, you can ask us to draw one for them! you want to talk about it Midnight? Im here, you can PM if you wish.
  10. Hi guys! Firstly thanks to @Jeric for sharing his story about his struggles, and for setting up this post for the GoG. I have a story of my own too; its the reason why I started the GoG. I used to suffer from depression; a lot of family died around the same time as people got into that phase of life where social standing matters a lot, and I wasnt exactly a popular kid. It sucked to be left out all the time, and people just...didnt really seem to care what happened to me or what anyone was doing to me. To a lot of people, it was just being needy and annoying. One of the few people I knew who did care about me when the rest of my family and schoolmates were too busy to care was an aunt I cherished a lot. She didnt care about what others did or said, I was just me. But one day, she fell ill, and it was discovered she had a brain tumor. A couple of days after that, whilst travelling to school, I overhear from the back of the car where they needed to go next after dropping me; the mortuary. It didnt take long to figure out what happened, and it was devastating. I just turned up to school and wept outside a classroom, I couldnt deal with it. But in all that time, not a teacher or a peer cared about what happened, and it all went downhill from there. People stopped talking to me and just simply ignored what was happening, and it reached a point where I was failing academically, with nobody to care and multiple people angry at me. It got too much, and I decided to just..end it. But for reasons I still cant figure out today, even though I was in plain sight in front of dozens of people, climbing over a railing to jump off the building, nobody seemed to give a crap. That was, except for a few bronies in school; they were the only people to step forward and try to convince me not to do it. Everyone else may as well have been a statue. Over the next few months to years, they offered a small, local community I could spend time with, and care about. They drew art, took me to meetups, everything. Then I found this place, Poniverse, by a random Google search, and the rest is history. People here have given me hope and help when I relapsed and needed it most, the people back home cheered me on with everything I did; all from this wonderful community of people, people who give and help others selflessly. It may not have seemed like much, the little random gifts, drawings and messages people sent to me, but it has given me reason to live and has made such an impact on my life. In this spirit, I would just like to ask people to give what they can to help out the many wonderful causes the fandom has. Come by and drop a few bucks into the GoG tin so we can give that support to others. Go and donate to the BC's Children's Hospital, and give a kid spending their holiday in a hospital that sense of warmth and joy. Nothing is more miraculous in the holiday season than to give others the joy we all celebrate each year. Thanks you all for reading, and Happy Holidays!
  11. In some ways, yes, this part of the GoG Subforum is kinda like the Life Advice forum, where people can come to discuss matters and other things that concern them. However we are trying to do a different take on the matter; We are seeking out partnerships with mental health charities, having a formalized channel for people who wish to talk with a helpful group of ponies, and in future (hopefully) offer proper counsel and care for people. The GoG is different in the sense that it is art built around helping others; it started with the intention of having artists draw art for people in distress, and a community they could come to for support. And Bas is right; we are technically separate, but still work very closely with MLPF on many matters. I hope this answers your question and clarifies things. Ping me again if you need more explaination!
  12. Do you have got an OC named Skysweep? That literally sounds ponish.

    Also, you could put a direct address in your profile for the DA field.

      My OC is actually named Typhoon; I use Skysweep as my online name for many intents and purposes. 

      Direct address? What do you mean?

    2. You
  13. Do you have got Discord?

      You seem quite interested in chatting to me, eh? 

      Do PM me with whatever you wish to talk about and ask. 

      Also, if you are interested in the GoG, might I recommend volunteering and chipping in? It does help!

  14. Hi!

    Allow me some feedback on GOG, I think it is a great thing and place!

    However, I am not sure the title is fitting enough for the artwork topic;

    I am telling you why I think so. Coming to that forums area for the first time(s), people prob do so because they are either curious or want to request. I feel that topic titles like 'Welcome to GoG' are drawing more attention that this topic title.
    I suggest to some of these;
    - Change the topic title
    - Mention that topic with a direct link in the Welcome thread
    - Pinning both topics

      Thanks for the feedback!

      Ill look into getting the "Welcome to the GoG" thread being pinned to the top (because of how threads are ordered in MLPF, whenever someone posts something new on each thread, it goes to the top) and also adding some links to the central page. 

  15. Well, we wouldnt be much of a "Gallery" if we didnt have a display of artwork from our various artists! So...whats here? Whats here is a place for the various GoG Artists to come by and add some of their artwork for the GoG to the collection! The artists can put up their artwork in any of the three places we operate (Discord, MLPF and dA), but they are welcome to put their choice pieces in all three. We want to show what the artists have done over time for us, and if the beneficiaries are fine with it, share with others the variety of struggles people have, and maybe, we can show that nopony is alone in whatever they are facing. For GoG Artists, do come by and drop off your pieces here for display. For everyone else, take a gander, enjoy, and celebrate the talent of the artists!
