  • OC Pony Compilation


    Since I was so graciously volunteered to gather and post these I figured I should get off my lazy flank and actually do it. I think you guys have had ample time to sculpt your creations. Read: don't send me any more.

    Just as a side note, though, I think some of you need to read the OC pony creation guidelines in my writing guide. Just saying. Shameless plug.

    - implying you don't love OC ponies Cereal, we all know your secret

  • 6 Million Madmax Comic!

    This goes perfectly with that epic portal crossover that somehow managed to be the only story to pop up on the "popular posts" section since I added it!

    Thanks Madmax!
  • 6 million hits! Rarity Time! And news!

    Rarity sure is amazing! Definitely the BEST unicorn on the show.

    Anyway on with the news!

    6 Star Tags
    I have been messing around with these, trying to decide on what stories should get them... At first the plan was to hand 6 star tags to every 5 star story that has over 50 votes.  Then I realized, they ALL have 50 votes! At least the newer ones.  You all seem to have taken my advice on fics or something, because they are more popular than ever now.  So, I think I might start assigning 6 star tags to stories that are 4.9+ with 60+ votes instead.  If your story meets that criteria, feel free to email me, though Zarkanorf already sent me everything that was eligible I think! 

    Google Docs Cap
    My best e-friend Speckles (who puts up with my constant pony nonsense) has discovered a very simple workaround for Google Docs caps.  If a doc is maxed out, simply replace the "edit" in the URL with "preview".  Apparently back on May 2nd, Google accidentally removed the code that automatically dishes out previews once a document is filled up.  They are fixing it soon, but for now a simple url fix should get you in.

    Is awesome

  • 2D Pony MMO Music

    A good amount of the music in the 2D Pony MMO has been compiled on Chain Algorithm's soundcloud page!  There are some really good tracks here!  I'm amazed that this game has come so far so quickly.  Hopefully we get a chance to try it out before season 2!

    You can find all 26 tracks below!

  • Streaming Ponies Soon To Be a Felony?

    Apparently a new bill has popped up, attempting to turn any form in internet streaming with copyrighted works into a straight up felony.

    It hasn't actually passed yet, but if something like this does manage to make it through, I wonder what the implications for Season two would be?  I think only a handful of us actually have the hub... most of this community is built around youtube streams of the show.  

    Though the big question is, would this even be heavily enforced?  Isn't it technically illegal as is?

    Anyway, I am in no way a laywer or someone who knows a large amount about this.  I just like poni.

    You can find the full article below!

    [Normal] Manehatten style Applejack!? Why did this take so long to happen?



    Author: Conner Cogwork
    Description: When Rarity is overwhelmed with making designs for an agriculture exhibition, she turns to Applejack for advice. But when she gives Applejack a hair style treatment in return, the apple farmer lets her accent slip from southern drawl to sophisticated Manehattenite. The result? More fancy parties than you can shake a candy apple at!
