Thanks for the update. I was wondering how exactly this was going to keep going with the script on the fritz and Phoe unable to access the internet.
img y u no cheerilee?
poor Phoe well even with the technical difficulties I'm willing to proclaim this a success
Sorry, can't resist. *ahem* Watch out, we're dealing with a badass over here.
wtg images? wut is that? guess i have to catch up on the rest of the eqd posts
Well, it gives me some time to touch up my submission. It's OK, but I'm definitely not happy with it. If it doesn't pass my test, I'm not posting it.
What does WTG stand for?
it might just be the sleep deprivation talking...but this is the funniest thing I have ever read. lol, poor Phoe.
@Soapy5 I think they meant ATG; Artist Training Ground. The event being held for the newbie artists.
@Muppetz There's nothing funny about computer anything going on the fritz. Trust me. I may be in my 20's, but I've seen enough computer trickery to make your head spin.
WTG = War Training GroundsThat's my guess, anyway.
At first I thought that read WTF images... at least it wasn't that.
I.......i dunno whay to say..........other than this: wut.
And suddenly, Jack Black. Lol
@Jelfes lol, same here
Heh, poor Phoe. This is what happens when you ask bronies to do something. The numbers are so great that technology gets brought to its knees.
I'm chuckling at the second tag. I know, it's a bit of an old meme. But considering what's going on here, it's pretty true.
@EPHorizon That's why I fear for the internet when the next song comes along. It won't be able to handle all the covers and remixes.Jeeze, I sure am chatty tonight. If anyone cares to bug my computer so I don't have access to EqD, go right ahead.
I'm sorry, Phoe. I didn't see your post about you having to be on your phone until I had already submitted! Don't hate me!
*Insert Applejack here*Well okay then!
@A Terrible Person Your username describes you! Nah, hehe.
Why can't I hold all these pictures?Good luck getting it fixed!
and suddenly, the image was jack black with lyra, hurray!
This Lyra is an octagon!!!!
And to think I was so pumped up over this event. Computer y u no work?
How can you send images of written words?Yeah I don't think some people were able to even send in their first entries, but there was a lot of good art.
@JelfesIt does indeed. I chose this name for a reason. Which, funnily enough, dates back to the first NATG. Where I did all sorts of terrible puns and morbidity.
send more! send mooorrrreee!!!Muwahahahaaa!(( actually no, don't, poor Phoe! I'm not that surprised... ))
First, we overrun BroNYCon. Now ATG. Next, the world?
Jack Black and Lyra just made this so much funnier.
>waiting on a new oneI see what you did there
@Leaf Growth With my experiences with playing WoW, I usually think WTG = Want To Get, but maybe that's just me. :P
Bronies accidentally the event. Take all the time you need, guys; we'll be patient.
Damn, I just finished my picture
aww... and I just finished my submission...http://tomek95.deviantart.com/art/ARES-pony-278797057
I'm not gonna lie. I'm shocked it took over a half hour before it got to the OMFG STOP IT point. I knew that once the point was hidden in a sea of text, there was gonna be a disasterpiece.
Phoe, we've killed you phone!
This should be a sticky
It's so shocking to see a picture of a human on this site so it's a good choice of image for an alert xD
HOW, LYRA, HOW?
As I said before, ahem... I'm sorreeee Phoe, I left EQD 10 minutes to set everything up, sent the email and then the announcement appeared.Please don't send me to the reeducation camp (The iguanas, THE IGUANAS) I'll be a good soldier from now on :c
@KH68What about the Monitor Lizards? Do they also instill a fear reaction, I knew I should have went with the Komodo's.
No worries, am glad we have more time now to draw something for day 2.^^Gonna try out some stuff to draw a better Firehoof in training today/tomorrow. :D
how long will this event last?
@CipherIt's a five day event, but as of now the event is postponed. Once it continues, we'll keep going till day 5...
My firm position on not spamming Phoe's inbox has now been validated.
Dat image.Well, hopefully this will make people halt sending them in for the time being. I hope it all gets sorted out. Which I'm sure it will. I have faith.
No peace of mind quite like that of sending in your pic an hour before the deadline, before the overrun flag pops up. ^_^
I finished mine and can't submit it. T_Thttp://readtoasts.deviantart.com/art/ATG-Army-1-Main-Strategist-TS-278799384
/engy well alrighty then!I guess I'll make two pictures then. My OC will finally see the light of... midnight?
EIGHT STUNNING ANGLES.
@2007excalibur20078 Beautiful points!
We can't stop now! We have too much momentum!Stopping now would cause catastrophic damage to us and our surroundings! (But yeah, I'll wait. Already broke my wall anyhow.)
Based on my googling, WTG means "way to go." So what's a WTG Image and why would ED be getting overwhelmed by them?*insert medic* I HAVE NO IDEA! But in the future, if I ever get a strange urge to post a picture of someone going "way to go" I shall henceforth withhold said images from being posted, linked to, or uploaded.Google gave me this:Way To Go - InternetSlang.com, urban dict, netlingo.comWhat The Gay? - urban dictWorld Telecom GroupWorld Golf Tour - wgt.comWorld Trade Group - www.wtginternational.comabbreviations.com gave me this:1 Wave & Tide Gauge Academic & Science » Ocean Science2 Wave & Tide Gauge Academic & Science » Meteorology3 Way To Go Internet » Chat4 Wind Turbine Generator Business » Products5 World Travel Guide Community6 World Travel Guide Governmental » Transportation7 West Texas Gas Business » Firms8 World Transplant Games Community » Sports9 Wisconsin Tuition Grant Academic & Science » Universities10 World Telecom Group Business » Firms11 World's Terrorist Groups Governmental » US Government12 World's Terrorist Groups Governmental » Military13 Women's Tefillah Group Community » Religion14 Washington Technology Group, Inc.

TiMe To OcTaGoN!
I think "WTG" is an error on Cereal's part, but it prolly refers to the Writer's Training Grounds on dA that some of the EqD pre-readers run on the side. The WTG and the Artist's TG share an IRC server/channel, so Cereal may have confused the two.
Some times I think people seriously forget or just vastly don't understand just how taxing sorting all this stuff out from hundreds of people can be on 1-3 people... and 1 without internet to boot and the others mail being swamped with useless images that would only slow things down with having to delete all the non-relevant pictures from the stupid WTG ones just because we had one untimely mishap go on.*ahem* Way To Go guys for being ever so tolerant of the less then handful of staff that run this, take a break and plan out your next mock-war training pictures and just wait till something pops up on when and where to send them.good night everypony!
@Cátsy delete all the non-relevant ones from the ones that matter*yeah way past bed times for me so ugh good night! ><
@CátsyWell, hate to play devil's advocate here, but you really can't blame us (or the site admins, really) for the submission site getting Ron Paul'd. The only other method of entry was the email addy provided, and it's not like anyone had any idea Phoe's laptop was gonna go deep six when it did.It's was fairly obvious to those of us that submitted early that Phoe was gonna have a ocean of emails to swim through, but the offset to that is if you were to show "kindness" to her inbox and not send in your entry, then you miss the deadline and don't get to participate. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.It's just a horribly bad run of luck with several technical difficulties. Can't point any blame at anyone.
Also: Octagonal Lyra is octagonal.
Well if this post is ineffective, I don't know what would be.
Oh wow, I can't believe we actually did it. We have oficially tangled Phoe XDThat's good though, more time to think on the second assignment. Nothing comes to mind, time to brainstorm!
Poor Phoe :( I hope it all gets sorted out, the first batch of pictures were awesome.
Sorry Phoe :(
How the heck do you mis-type "A" as "W"? I can understand "Q" "S" or "Z" as typos for "A", given that those three letters are on adjacent keys, but "W" is not only on a different line, it's hit with a different finger.
Well, it's nice to know that the brony community can even break portions EQD with gratuitous amounts of traffic. At least it's not some poor, unsuspecting website running a poll, right?No? Eh, oh well.Poor Phoe...
Achievement Unlocked : Spam Equestria Daily Mod with fellow bronies. Break her email. Do you like bananas? Cause Phoe knows where you can find out.
Oh, snap! Sorry Phoe......
I can't understand why Phoe didn't alert us as soon as it started. No negative word from Phoe meant more emails from us.
LISTEN TO JACK BLACK.he knows his Octagons.
I'm still sending images loael
*sigh* i'm already done the second assignment http://lazzyx.deviantart.com/#/d4lzn2y. . . oh well looks like i better use the spare time before sending in the picture to do a bit of drawing practice and pony body structure studying.
What an epic octagon!
Oh, wow. Sorry about that Phoe.Heh, next time let us know so we don't just blast your email address with 500+ submissions :PI'll get started on my next entry and wait for the go-ahead to send it in.
@Pegasus Rescue BrigadeThe answer is simply that calling an end to the event felt like a betrayal of all your hard work. I was on top of it for a long time, and I thought I'd be able to manage. I thought if I could at least get Day 1 sorted and posted, it might be ok if I took a break and waited for a new script to help me out.But then I left for one hour to hand in the keys to my temp housing, and by the time I could check the inbox again to know I was screwed, it was too late. I was already 170 behind and falling farther. All I could think to do was scramble and try to get as many up as I could. Could have gone better. =/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm2E24jSAfII love Jack Black
Despite the circumstances I want to thank Phoe for the opportunity that she has given us. If not for this event I would have not even attempted to draw ponies or even to break into the community. Thank you again Ms.Phoe and hoping everything works out with this and your current housing.
@Phoe*hops and bounces up hmmms and gives Phoe Pinkie Pie hugs and hands her a big super duper red bow tied Brush of Brushyness +2*No worries, I think most of us figured your email would explode...twice from the ammount of submissions you would get. Good try! Perhaps holding off for a bit till things are straightened out then we can try this again! I haven't drawn in like 10 years so that was my first attempt. Could have gone better I think.
.....EIGHT STUNNING ANGLES!!!!
So basically we need to wait for a post that tells we can bombard her inbox again.(sorry for maybe bad english)
@KinkyOats: Thank you for sharing that video!
they need more bandwidth. they need more resources. they need US. TO THE DONATION BOX!
Enfiar uma placa na sua bunda... vc está fazendo isso errado :P
