    Tonight's Successful Meetups



    June Monthly party Aftermath!



    The June Monthly had over 75 attendees! We had board games such as Pony Codenames, the word-guessing game played with MLP trading cards. Art drawings and video game tournaments, like Super smash ?Brothers melee, throughout the day. As the evening hours set in, the dance party was the most popular activity. Every brony danced into the late hours of the night! Everyone had a blast from the calm drawing activities to the wild dancing in into the night, with DJ YourEnigma, Dj Serif and Siberian Winter! Next time why don’t you join us at the next Monthly, to join in on the fun?

    Tonight's Groups Looking For More



    A New "Pointless" Survey


    Well, my first ever panel has come and gone and apart from a few hiccups early on, I feel it was a success. The hiccups came when I wasn't given a laptop to operate my game board. I ultimately had to go back to my room to get my Mac and run the game from that. Since this is on PowerPoint, I prefer to use it on PCs since the board runs quicker. As it was, the board ran fine on Friday night. There was also a hiccup during play when I found out I hyperlinked to the wrong slide on one question. Fortunately, it didn't ruin the game and I continued on.

    Friday night was mostly about persistence as panels do have their problems from time to time. Still, people did give the game and panel positive reviews and for that I'm thankful. I'm also thankful to the crew at MLP-MSP for giving me the opportunity to run this panel (my 1st in the 15 cons I've been to). I hope to do this again at BronyCAN and/or Ponyville Ciderfest later this year.

    With that in mind, I have created a new survey with new questions: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2850155/Pointless-Ponies-3

    This one will run until Saturday, August 13th. Again, I'm hoping for at least 100 respondents for these surveys. It's challenging, but then that's the point for these "Pointless Surveys".
