  • Story: Tales of Harmony (Update Part 9, Side story part 12!)


    [Adventure][Crossover]

    Author: Starwind Dood
    Description: Fan-fiction that will show you the harmony found in our hearts!

    The fate of Equestria will be decided not by the madness of battle, but by the harmony between each other...

    Twilight, a student from Canterlot, and her dragon companion, Spike, find themselves caught in a mission to find the elements of harmony to stop the the crazed mare, Nightmare Moon. Equestria is not a land of love and tolerance, but a land that has been ravaged by racial conflict, sudden earthquakes, and the shadows within a pony's heart. Only with friends can Twilight find the strength to stop Nightmare Moon.

    To save Equestria, Twilight will have to prevail against power-hungry ponies and those who would wish to stop the gathering of the elements of harmony. Honesty, Laughter, Kindness, Generosity, Loyalty, and Magic. Are these strong enough to fight the wicked?

  • Disqus Was fun... But Buggy.

    So I've spent all day modifying Disqus, finally getting it where I want to be.  I get some food, come back, and comments won't load on anything.

    For now at least, I'm just going to revert back to blogger.  I can't get Disqus to reinstall itself on EQD at all.  Maybe the service is down? Who knows.  We might try it again in the future.  At least I fixed the clone thing!

    To all the new twitter/facebook commenters, make a Google account! It totally integrates with blogger, and if we ever do bring disqus back, it works there too.
  • Story Updates November 27th (Evening)



    Story update time! Go read stuff while I do more Disqus fixing!

    I have to admit, when I saw Kindgom Hearts in my email, I was about to prep the moon canon. We don't have any luck at all with KH crossover submissions for the most part, even if I do love the games. 

    This on the other hand... do freakin want.  Apple Bloom keyblade master is now best pony, all years, every years.

  • Gendid's Artist of the Week: WillDrawForFood1

    Gendid has convinced me to break his Artist of the Week posts off from the Nightly Roundups! For those that haven't been following the series, each week a new artist is chosen for a full on interview.  We have a massive community of talented illustrators, so hopefully this helps everyone meet the face behind the pictures filling up drawfriends on a daily basis! 

    The full interview can be found after the break.

  • The Mysterious Mare Do Well: Followup


    For those that missed it last week, we will be doing a "followup" post for new episodes, dedicated to picking out all the cool stuff.  This week we had The Mysterious Mare Do Well, and of course, it was filled with all sorts of wacky references.

    Check it out after the break!
  • Manehattan TF2 Map

    MAAAANEhatten.  At least that's how Applejack says it right?  The group that keeps pumping out crazy pony cities in TF2 has released a new map designed around the bustling metroplis of Manehatten, complete with a DJ lounge, Auntie and Uncle Orange's abode, and toilets... yes toilets.

    Anyway, check the video out after the break!  Info on obtaining the map can be found in the description.

    They also updated their Luna map with some texture fixes. 
  • On Disqus and Load Times

    One thing bothering me about Disqus is load times.  It is a much more robust system, and does require a second or two to load.

    I am looking into a fix for that.  Sadly Google searches are only giving me outdated information, so I have to wait for Disqus support to respond.

    Disqus does have an export feature, so if we do switch back, hopefully I can snag all the comments.  If you  write something huge that you don't want to lose in comments, please keep a backup just in case. 

    Anyway, back to testing! Hopefully all these bugs will be fixed, and we can move forward with a much better comment system.

    One more thing: It looks like the front page comment tallies are actually being overridden.  They show up correct to start, then a half a second later are replaced with the incorrect number.  I think this may be something in blogger that needs to be axed.  I've emailed support about that, hopefully they can nail it for me.

    One more note:  The Disqus button above the comment box has your settings in it.  Some take a few minutes to update.  You can also go to the actual Disqus website and edit your settings there.
  • Nightly Roundup #169


    Whoever thought of giving Rainbow Dash sunglasses... is a genius.  I love the FiM team.

    Have some news. 
  • New Comment System!

    Blogger is really limited in comments, so we are giving the improved version of Disqus a shot!

    This is going to add a whole bunch of neat little features.
    • Comment with Twitter/facebook/pretty much whatever you want instead of Blogger. 
    • Sort by oldest/newest/whatever you prefer
    • Threaded comments and replies
    • Notifications
    • A bunch of other random stuff
    Obviously upgrading from something as simple as the blogger comment system is going to be a bit strange at first, but this gives everyone way more control over comments.

    Right now the last ~4 hours is still migrating over.  All old comments should already be updated!

    There are a lot of small tweaks that can be done from the Disqus dashboard, and as needs arise I will probably swap things around a bit.

    Anyway, give it a shot! This is way cooler than blogger's ghetto comment system ever was. 

    We tend to freak out pretty hard when change occurs here.  Give disqus some time.  It will have a few bugs, but overall the features far outweigh the learning curve.  Blogger's comment system was very limited.

    Note: NOSCRIPT USERS -  You must enable Disqus.  It is not built into blogger.

    Note 2: You can change the account you log in with by logging out and picking one at the top! 

    Note 3: Added pages instead of that "show more comments thing" cause its annoying and slow.

    Note 4: Apparently Mobile makes it look like I'm the only one commenting :x I'll email support about that  

    Note 5: Login is Required (Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, anything on the list)  


    Note 6: There seems to be a synch bug with the comment numbers on the main page.  It updates in intervals.  I've emailed support about that.
